Hey :) I've been following this story for a few weeks now :) I read the first book so to speak, and it was brilliant. The way all the characters are portrayed is fantastic. I don't understand the deal with dumbledore.. You seem to really hate him and you've made him out to be some weak cruel old man. Anyway, that's the only problem I can see with the story :) i'm glad smidgen survived :) well done x

Author's Response: He's not weak, but there are other beings in my universe that are stronger and more powerful, such as Phil and Titania. He's also made some terrible mistakes in regards to Harry and Severus, mistakes which nobody ever called him on in the original books, but which I am having people confront him with in this one.

He's not so much cruel as willfully blind to all but his concept of the greater good. Think about what he admitted to Snape in DH--how he deliberately placed Harry in harm's way trying to get him killed so the Horcrux within him could be destroyed. He had a hidden agenda all that time and he also sent Harry back time and again to a place he had to suspect was abusive, all under the pretext of "protecting" him with blood wards from Voldemort. What good are wards to protect him from evil wizards if Harry dies from starvation or injury at the hands of the Dursleys? After reading DH I began to see what Albus was really like and what he did, even for a good cause, did not strike me as noble or good at all. Look at how he failed to protect Sev from the Marauders' bullying and tell me that he was a good Headmaster. Again and again Snape spied for him at risk of his own life and yet it was never enough, because when push came to shove, he put Sev's soul in jeopardy by using an Unforgivable. He also put students' lives in danger when he hid the Stone in the school and hired questionable defense teachers such as Lockhart, fake Moody, and Umbridge. If he cared so much about Harry, he should have destroyed Voldemort that time in the Ministry, instead he let him escape and cause more harm to everyone. I think it shameful that a supposedly powerful wizard should rely upon a mere boy to kill a mad wizard.
