Chapter: (a little fall of rain)

I'm a little bit lost for words.

I like how this wasn't about the revolution, not really. It was about love and bravery.

Harry's piece was heartbreaking, truly truly heartbreaking, and his anger at the Aurors who had defied orders and killed Albus was extremely powerful. But it was the last line that caught me off guard, that dealt the final blow in my attempt to hold off tears. I didn't see that coming at all, in fact I re-read the entire story to see if I'd failed to pick up on something. Wow, just wow.

Incredibly moving,
Fenella

Thank you so much for the amazing review. I'm so glad you caught on the major themes (I know I was being a bit cryptic). And Harry ... I felt so bad for him and for everything that happened.

The last line. I wasn't sure what people were going to make of that. The only hint I really gave to the fact that Rose lived was this: "The wound is on her side, thank Merlin, not her stomach, but something seems off. The rain couldn’t dilute the blood enough for there to be this much, could it?" I'm so glad you liked it; I really wasn't sure about this. Just, thank you. <333333

Powerful but I do not think it made a lot of sense. What was it that made them think the world was so wrong it needed a revolution to change it? What was the cause worth dying for?

Author's Response: Thank you for the review. :)

This was actually one of the issues I talked with my beta about. The main place I address your first question was this: "But his son also was a rebel without a cause. Harry knew that. Albus had this grand idea he could change the world, and Harry didn’t doubt he had the persuasion skills to do it, but there truly wasn’t enough to fix. The reforms after the war had done remarkable things for the Wizarding world." Albus was a bit delusional in the piece; there wasn't a lot that actually needed anything to change. There is a section of what he thinks is wrong, that the people are losing their free will and the government is holding them with an iron fist and causing fear. As for the cause worth dying for, it was mentioned that it wasn't supposed to end in a battle. But when it came down to it, Albus really did think it was. I hope that helps, and thanks for the review again!
