Review:Whimsical Diva says:
Oh and why did this lot have to do this? Didn't Thane say the disease would be cured in a year anyway? Or am I forgetting something here?

Why did Jones have to die? WHY?

Author's Response: I could clear up the language in what Thane said. He mentioned a cure would be out in a year, though didn't elaborate on what it would be, or where it would come from - if it was just a prediction, then predictions can be wrong. If it was a plan, then that would have been the Council's own plan, to provide a cure to further their own ends. However, Nat's Botched Cure changed everything. Made Phlegethon more lethal, faster, and so the Council of Thorns' plan changed. The Resurrection Stone WAS the cure (or the only cure anyone knew of), and it was in Nat's hands.

They could have perhaps waited and not done the ritual, though there was no guarantee more students wouldn't die while they waited. They did do something incredibly risky, yes, acting when they did. And they went in with inaccurate information, seeing as they didn't know about the central markings of the ritual. But considering those were hidden at Ground Zero of Dementor Land, it would have probably been lethal to go investigate that place even if they'd known to look.

It was a gamble to save more lives, knowing Phlegethon was slowly killing everyone it afflicted, and they lost one. Perhaps a mistake. But the mistake they chose.
