So the ritual is finally here. Very clever / fitting to have the first and last parts of the trilogy climax with a ritual (I assume this is the climaX of Oblivion?). Rose definitely has something up her sleeve. Whether it works (or works the way she intends) or not I suppose we will see soon enough.

What I really love about all the hints you've been dropping is that they don't just fill your readers with hope for Scorpius but also with apprehension for how his life might be saved and what that means for Rose. She's dropped out of narration the last few chapters, and that's really telling... I think that conversation Rose and Hermione had about having to live with your choices is going to be really relevant in the end.

We are going to be mourning something at the end of this- whether it's Scorpius,the last shred of Rose's innocence or the pure love they shared (if her solution wasn't one she could share with him pre ritual, I doubt it's something he will be able to forgive her for. "I'm sorry... you don't understand." Yikes!) Or maybe something else...

Whatever the case, the real emotional stakes for the reader are all indicative of a great writer. Congrats on the dobby! It's definitely well deserved.

Also, I loved the line that went something like 'it ended too soon because the oceans weren't dried up and the stars hadn't fallen yet'.

Author's Response: This is A climax of Oblivion, but dramatically this is much more in-line with the claiming of the Chalice in Starfall or the prisoner exchange of Ignite. I won't say the BEST is yet to come, but more is to come; Raskoph and Thane and the face in the fire and Draco are all still issues.

You're right, it is absolutely a deliberate choice to drop out of Rose's head for the last few chapters. You're also right that, 'what can you live with' is basically the theme for the final arc. We're kind of past 'what do you deserve', and somehow I guess Oblivion's answer has been, 'It doesn't matter what you deserve, there is only what you get.' Which is a kind of maudlin theme, and not one I deliberately set out to write!

Thank you for the congratulations! Absolutely thrilled with the Dobby. It's a pretty great capstone on the final furlong of the trilogy.

The line you quoted - originally that was written when they kissed in front of Ultima Thule, it just plonked out from my keyboard and I thought, 'No, this is too good to use right now.'

Thanks for reviewing!
