    Summary

    It was subtle at first. For the first several months, she assumed it was merely the stress of the war; for the next several months, she assumed it was the stress of the trials; then when winter approached, she assumed it was stress from school.

    She kept assuming it was stress until she was walking to the cabinet to retrieve her supplies for Potions class and the walls began closing in, wobbling and swallowing her up.

    When she woke again, she was in the Hogwarts hospital ward.

    Severus Snape stood at her bedside, staring down at her with an expression of profound irritation.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “She would survive because she was a fighter, she’d been told more times than she could keep track of. The ‘encouraging’ sentiment was worked into almost every single letter she received from Harry, Ron, and Molly.
    Which implied by extension that, when she died, it would be her fault, because she just hadn’t tried hard enough.“

    Dying wasn’t a PR opportunity for other people.

    These are things that I am taking with me to keep from repeating that same behavior with others.

    Summary

    Logical continuation of the awful and illogical Game of Thrones finale. If they wanted anyone of the Starks to live beyond a few months they shoudn't have left Drogon alive.

    This is my attempt to find some explanation of the end of House Targaryen, and add some modicum of logic to the stupid show arc. For me, the only explanation of that poisonous arc is malice. In this story, it is Bloodraven who is maliciously destroying the characters. I also choose to take it as an allegory of the Douches destroying the characters in the show.

    This is also the last time I would be concerned with the show. From now on, only book characters. The show is but ashes to me now. In the immortal words: shadows and dust.

    Chapter two is such a powerful insight to the way that the story might have/most likely would have gone after the disaster that Dumbass1 and Dumbass2 wrote for season 8. Yeah, not pretty and definitely no redemption for any of the characters, but a laying bare of human motivations and foibles. (Writing this just after reading chapter two.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    An absolutely wonderful story. While the characters are not compliant with canon, who cares? If I wanted canon I would re-read the books that have been able to make it to print.

    The uncontested best battle scene anywhere in fanfic.  

    The story I keep looking for, and somehow due to age seem to misplace the name of the story as well as the name of the author. BRAIN FART!!!!

    Chapter 43, page four of the comments - one of the best arguments ever for why Dumbles should be removed from the wizarding world.
