Cool story! I simply adore Aberforth - he's a good person at heart, but refreshingly non-suicidal, unlike the rest of the HP characters. This piece captures that pefectly - no mention of being scared, or wishing he was strong enough to go, because that isn't how he would see it. Instead it's all about rash decisions and being reasonable.

I also love how you have him gradually being sucked in to the action, without some melodramatic change of heart. I dislike these in general, and I adore how you show Aberforth having a similar reaction - he's simply going to find out what's happening, not do anything stupid.

The interaction with the other characters also helps to highlight Aberforth's characteristics, as well as giving us a ton of interesting insights at the same time, which is a nice touch.

I can just see Fred & George thinking Aberforth is awesome. He's sort of their kind of guy, isn't he? Temperamental old man who does weird things. I like that Ginny was the one to tell Aberforth he ought to man up and fight, that was a good touch. Hearing his thoughts on the people passing through to the castle was fun to read, especially the bit about Tonks.

I really loved this story! From the start Aberforth was making me giggle and at the same time I wanted to give him a hug too. I could really feel that it was Aberforth's voice talking in this story.

It made me giggle when he wished Dumbledore's army was named after him. I also really liked the line "Don't they all have goodbyes to make, unfinished business to wrap up in the very likely case of their doom?" That's partly because it really seems to fit him somehow and partly because I can completely understand him. I've sometimes thought that I could be thinking at my last moments something like "Oh my god, my flat is sooo messy and everyone's going to go through it when I'm dead and I forgot to tell my friend about this one thing and now she will never know and now I never finished this other thing and."

lol! I love it that he has absolutely no clue of why Tonks wants to know about Remus.

You have so many great lines in this story! Other particular favourites are: "Their conversation continues but I have to pick the wax out of my ear and blink in shock, so I miss most of it." and "I mean, if a man says he doesn't want to go and get shot down in an instant, than I'm quite sure that means that that particular man does not want to go and get shot down in an instant."

You've written Aberforth's conflicting emotions very well. In a way he is completely sure of what he wants and doesn't want, but then inside he is more unsure. I love it how he kind of convinces himself to go to the fight in the end by still telling himself that he won't go.

This is so well written and flows well that it was a real pleasure to read. I loved the story from beginning to end!
