;-; That was beutiful. I liked the first chapter more than the second one, 'cause it made me feel like crying. There're just too many HP fics that have happy endings. Not that I mind happy endings, mind you. It's just nice to read something that goes against the norm.
Well, you certainly did a good job shocking me with that ending. I think it didn't bother me too much since I knew there'd be a happy version, unlike how when Dumbledore dies, he's dead. I actually like the sad one better; it's deeper. Great story.
To be honest I prefer an ending where Harry lives but yours was so heartwrenchingly beautiful that I really love it, despite the heartache for Ginny.
I'm still hoping for a happy ending come book 7 but this is a beautiful version too. Up ntil the last sentence I was still thinking maybe he was in a coma of something and then the word funeral pops up and I was crushed.
Still it was absolutely lovely and well setup, I knew angst was abound but didn't see the twist coming, kudos to you!
