    I liked this a lot, but I didn't think there was enough emotional resolution. (That's a purely personal thing, btw.)

    Soooo this is Major Character Death and waldorph didn't tag it. It's NOT a fix-it (not really).

    Fair warning?

    This was ... difficult to read, because it's basically a dystopia that is convinced it's not a dystopia.

    Imagine not feeling emotions anymore, because the government makes you take pills that stop you from feeling things.

    (Hey, I never read The Giver in school, so it was a new-ish concept to me. The idea was also explored in the movie Equilibrium, which is actually a pretty cool movie.)

    And then imagine that you accidentally stop taking your pills...and start feeling things. And realising that feeling feelings (English sucks, sometimes)--even the bad ones--is so much better than feeling nothing at all.

    And then imagine that while you're off your pills, you fall in love with a teammate, who you're convinced will never love you back, to that level or that intensity. Yeah.

    Summary

    'Harry's thoughts were of how much he would have done differently with Malfoy over the years, and of Dumbledore's final words to the other boy . . . "It is my mercy, and not yours, that matters now." Maybe, Harry wondered, he could find some mercy, too, and give Malfoy the second chance that Dumbledore had believed him worthy of.'

    I liked this, but unlike the usual Drarrys in which Hermione and Ron are either a) cautiously accepting or b) going 'duh' the entire time, they were actually kind of awful to Harry for most of the story. :/
