I liked this...it's venturing quite far from your usual fluff or depression, but you're doing very well in this area, too. I only wonder what was it she knew...I mean, surely the mere fact she went to school with Voldie wouldn't be enough of a motivation...McGonnagal wouldn't survive a week if that was the case! So I wonder...do you plan on letting us know in another story, or is it some kind of a forever-mystery? :)

I liked McGonnagal in this chapter, and Dumbledore, too. Ampara herself is quite a nice character, too, I wonder why she never had children...

The idea of Greyback being able to influence with a mere scratch of his finger is interesting, too. You certainly made him creepy enough.

Author's Response: It is very different from what I usually write. I think it's the first time I've ever written anything like this. Yeah, some of what Ampara knew about Tom Riddle will be forever a mystery... I tried to hint at it a bit with her remembering how she had a crush on him during his Head Boy year - the year he acquired the ring. They would have just kept an eye on her but Greyback is a loose cannon.

Greyback's attack and the dementor combined to fuel her descent into madness. I didn't want to kill her off, cause I like her character, but sadly anyone who gets the DADA job doesn't seem to get a happily ever after... and I did create her purely for her death at the end of the story. Quite a bit outside my normal fare. I suspect Minerva stays at the school as long as she has for safety, much as Snape did. Hogwarts was pretty much the only place outside Voldy's reach.

Thank you so much! I'm really glad you liked it.
