'If they do, they probably call them something weird like...ciggos. Cigarettos. Everything over there ends in -os.'

Haaa, you're so right! I've taken at least eight years of spanish and it never fails to annoy the hell out of me that everything ends in -as or -os. They have such an easy time when creating songs -- everything rhymes!
Anyway, to the point. The finale chapter was pretty shocking. Neville and Luna dying I did not expect, though I think now that I should have. : )
Clyde's character was so original, throughout. And though I hated him, he was also just too fascinating to not read more about. He grew and developed, though not in the way he should have, and not in the correct time; everything he did seemed like he did it too late. His actions fit the character you created perfectly.
I couldn't quite grasp the bit about God . . . perhaps that's because I'm not a very religious person, myself, so it falls on deaf ears (or blind eyes, as it is). But the whole part about him dropping out of Hogwarts and becoming a janitor, and being a mute . . . brilliant, really. You didn't go out of your way and make him change into this redeemed man who went out and took the world by storm, which wouldn't have been fitting; it was a natural progression, even if the end point was not all that glamorous.
If I'm not rambling and you can still understand what I'm trying to say?
Anyway, a pleasure (erm...or horror?) to read. It was so different, and despite the darkness of it, it was satisfying to follow that one, flawed character until the very end.
10/10 all the way through. Thanks for writing. : D

Author's Response: XD I don't know what prompted me to make fun of Spanish. It just felt right, I guess XD

Thank you! I actually kind of hated him too, but writing him was a blast, if that makes any sense.

The bit about God, I knew was going to be a stretch. Either it would hit completely with readers or miss completely. But while I was writing it, it just felt right, so I had to include it.

I knew the story would be ruined if I made Clyde change for the better. That hardly ever happens, don't you think? It would take away all of what made him special, I thought. I'm so glad you liked my choices.

I understand completely what you're trying to say =)

Thank you so much. Your reviews have made me so much more confident in this story. Thank you so much! ^_^
