Tonks was clearly in shock when she got to the hospital wing. Poor Sirius found someone in even worse shape than he had been. I liked how you had Izzy having very mixed feelings when she found out it was Fred dead rather than George. she also had a typical teenager reaction to what she'd said to George. I don't think she was too hard on him but it may take time for him to become some kind of normal. It was quite a turn of events to have Sirius be the sensible one When Voldemort announced Harry's "death". He handled that role pretty well despite being so unfamiliar with it. In a way Sirius got to avenge Remus by taking down Fenrir Greyback. Sometimes lucky is better than good (grabbing a silver trophy when trying to fight a werewolf). I'm sorry this story is coming to an end but it had to happen one day. It's been a wonderful ride (and it is not quite done yet!).

Author's Response: Tonks was a mess, pure and simple - she'd been told her husband was dead, she had no idea what to do - if Sirius hadn't been there, she might have just lost it.
Izzy just had no idea of what to feel in this chapter - first she was afraid it was George who was dead, then she was relieved it was Fred, then she felt horrible for feeling such a thing, then she felt even worse for 'breaking George' with her words, the everything all over again with Harry. Now she just can't see beyond George's words and his reaction isn't helping convincing her. It's going to be a while before George snaps out of his current behaviour - losing Fred (and Angelina too) was the biggest blow he's ever received in his life and it's got him absolutely raw at the moment.
I don't think 'sensible' might be the right word for Sirius's reaction - mostly, he was stubbornly in denial even though he had good reason to be. If things had turned out another way, with Harry being gone, he'd just be setting himself up for a very big blow. He was very lucky with Greyback indeed - if he'd been thrown anywhere other than the trophy room, he'd be toast... well, maybe not, thanks to Harry's sacrifice, but he didn't know about that yet.
I'm very happy you apreciate the series. This volume may be coming to an end, but the story will continue in the sequel. Despite the focus shifting a little, there will still be plenty of everyone else in there :D
My outtake parallel to this chapter is currently on queue. The backlog is not too much, so it should be up soon enough to keep you entertained until the epilogue and the sequel come.
