Slowly, very slowly, he sat up, and as he did so he felt more alive, and more aware of his own living body than ever before. Why had he never appreciated what a miracle he was, brain and nerve and bounding heart? It would all be gone … or at least, he would be gone from it. His breath came slow and deep, and his mouth and throat were completely dry, but so were his eyes.

Dumbledore’s betrayal was almost nothing. Of course there had been a bigger plan; Harry had simply been too foolish to see it, he realised that now. He had never questioned his own assumption that Dumbledore wanted him alive. Now he saw that his lifespan had always been determined by how long it took to eliminate all the Horcruxes. Dumbledore had passed the job of destroying them to him, and obediently he had continued to chip away at the bonds tying not only Voldemort, but himself, to life! How neat, how elegant, not to waste any more lives, but to give the dangerous task to the boy who had already been marked for slaughter, and whose death would not be a calamity, but another blow against Voldemort.

And Dumbledore had known that Harry would not duck out, that he would keep going to the end, even though it was his end, because he had taken trouble to get to know him, hadn’t he? Dumbledore knew, as Voldemort knew, that Harry would not let anyone else die for him now that he had discovered it was in his power to stop it. The images of Fred, Lupin and Tonks lying dead in the Great Hall forced their way back into his mind’s eye, and for a moment he could hardly breathe: Death was impatient …

But Dumbledore had overestimated him. He had failed: the snake survived. One Horcrux remained to bind Voldemort to the earth, even after Harry had been killed. True, that would mean an easier job for somebody. He wondered who would do it … Ron and Hermione would know what needed to be done, of course … that would have been why Dumbledore wanted him to confide in two others … so that if he fulfilled his true destiny a little early, they could carry on …

Like rain on a cold window, these thoughts pattered against the hard surface of the incontrovertible truth, which was that he must die. I must die. It must end.


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (2007) 

I just have to say that I didn’t cry very hard reading Deathly Hallows up until this point. I had that constant stream of tears and sniffles, but this is where I completely broke down. I didn’t want my best friend to die.

drarry prompted by deankins

prompt: could you do harry being harry and saying something sassy to ron and hermione but they don’t find it funny then three tables across the gryffindor’s, they hear draco laugh?

SORRY THIS TOOK ME 500 YEARS TO WRITE. It’s Hogwarts 8th Year drarry AU with just a sprinkle of romione on the side. Also, I made it a lot longer than I thought I was going to make it and now I’m not actually sure if I like it because I want to put more depth (and lbr more fluff) in it, but that would require making it longer so…

I’m putting it out there as is for now because I don’t want the wait to go on forever. I might continue it on ffnet or something if you guys want it. ANYWAY HERE IT IS ACK


“I’m just saying that if elves had the same opportunities that we have, they could—“

“Oh my god, Hermione, you already told us this last night.”

“But were you listening, Ron?” Hermione asked, her hair whipping across Harry’s cheek as she turned to shoot daggers at the redhead across the Gryffindor table. “You tend to be an awful listener.”

“That’s not fair!” Ron insisted. “I listen to you.”

“Really? Name three times.”

“Guys, please,” Harry muttered, blowing Hermione’s brunettes strands away from his mouth. “Stop.”
