Review:TheHeirOfSlytherin says:
Hey.

I won't lie, part of me hoped he'd be freed because I wanted to see what would happen (it could make an epic action auror story :P), but I'm also glad he wasn't. Greyback's animal nature and that he considers lycanthropy a gift makes him extremely dangerous, I think. He deserves Azkaban; Hermione did the right thing and I'm glad she won her case.

Whoa, fight scene. That was awesome. Loved that he still didn't go down fighting. Actually, I loved the whole scene in the room in general. To see the battle from Hermione's eyes must have been quite an experience for Albus.

The end with Seamus was just so sad. I love the Seamus/Lavender romance that was, part of me hoped she was alive but I think I knew deep down. I hope Seamus does come back eventually, though I understand why he tried to kill him. Glad he told Hermione instead of trying again, though. It just made me even more sad to hear he did it for Lavender. :(

Amazing last chapter and I've loved every minute of reading this.

Sam.

Author's Response: Hello, again!

Part of me was also very intrigued by the possibility of allowing Greyback to escape and turning this into a longer story. If I had to speculate, I'd say that after his escape, Harry and Seamus would have wound up joining forces to hunt him down. After a final, brutal confrontation, Harry or possibly Hermione would have barely been able to talk Seamus out of killing him. It could have been interesting, I suppose...

I'm really glad you liked the fight scene. It wound up being shorter than what I had originally planned, but it just seemed to work better this way. Greyback definitely wasn't going to give up without a fight.

I picked up some lovely head canon along the way that puts Seamus and Lavender into an odd sort of mutually supportive, not-quite-love-but-more-than-friendship relationship during the year that Hogwarts was controlled by Snape and the Carrows. I thought it was really sad that she didn't survive the final battle. Seamus has always seemed like the lone wolf type to me. And since he could easily lose himself in the slums of Belfast, it made for a very believable story.

I'm really glad you enjoyed the story! Thanks for taking the time to leave such a nice review!
