Chapter: No Turning Back

Hmm... Is his mother already dead? That sounds like something they would do to people. Kill the mom and have someone else disguised as her for the photos, or else kill her right before the promise charm was operated? How sad that Pettigrew could not care about all those other lives! It may be his mother, but isn't saving ten lives better than one? I realize, of course, the difficulty of the situation, but I'm sure Peter's mother would not have been proud of her son's decision. I know that I would rather my child save everyone else, even if it meant my death.

Author's Response: I am glad to say that Mrs Pettigrew made it out alive (I believe she received the Order of Merlin on behalf of Peter after he framed Sirius). Her memory was modified so she truly believed that Peter was a hero and had no idea that he had joined the Death Eaters (for that matter, she has no memory of being captured). I agree that saving ten lives is better than one, but I don't think many people are so logical as to see it that way when it comes down to being their choice. Plus, how would you have felt about Peter if he'd sacrificed his mother for strangers? I agree that if Mrs Pettigrew was given a choice, she wouldn't have wanted Peter to choose her over everyone else but if she were in the same situation, do you think she'd sacrifice Peter for the greater good? Really, the true villain here is Voldemort for putting Peter in this situation in the first place.

Thanks for reviewing,
Hypatia

I love this... only Peter didn't really sacrifice that much and all... he was threatened with his own life, not his mother's, but this is all right...
