A beautifully written chapter concerning a hard subject for Harry to handle, but with all the adult support he had after reporting his dreams to Sirius and Remus, he's handling it much better than he did in canon. I really like the round-about way you led up to the subject of the prophecy and Dumbledore's reluctance to divulge it in full. You show his sneakiness in manipulating the various "players" in this part of the story and how, when push came to shove, Harry had a right to learn it in full so that he could make the decision to try to defeat Voldemort on his own. I think Harry made the first real adult decision of his life. I hope that Harry will eventually be given the all-clear to tell his friends about the prophecy because they can offer the support he needs from people his own age. Well done.

Author's Response: Such kind words! I've gotta say that your comments definitely buoy me as a writer. I was worried about this chapter for a while, but I like how it turned out. Dumbledore still has some of the manipulative tendencies he displayed in canon, but I like to think that he's actively working to improve himself. It was a big deal for Harry to choose to fight against Voldemort, and it'll have ripple effects throughout the rest of the story.

Sometimes a burden shared is a burden haved. Nice to see that everyone is now getting up to speed but i agree with harry and have his friends join would be a benefit since they would see it from out side the box…instead of from with in…kutgw

Author's Response: That's been a challenge for me as an author: Harry shares almost everything important with Ron and Hermione in canon, but that hasn't been a reasonable option for him yet. With Ginny as a third trustworthy friend for Harry to have to keep so much important information from, he's in a tough spot. They'd definitely bring some different points of view. Thanks for reading and commenting!
