I agree with Skye. That was such a horrible part. But I cried when Hedwig died too :/ But then Tonks or Lupin should have to give their baby a parent as well. But Fred...I loved fred. The twins needed each other so much. Hmm idk Id say Dobby or Fred.

Maybe if they'd been developed as dynamic or interesting characters, then I might be concerned by their deaths. As it is, I didn't really mind their deaths.

His motivations seemed pretty clear. He wanted to live forever and rule the world.

Still, I just wasn't feeling it. More Voldlemort, more I say!

When it comes to Harry Potter, I like to pretend that there's not fanfiction- at least the majority of revolting HP slash fanfic that's on the internet. Oh geez, I refuse to even think of it.

I've found two astoundingly good HP fanfics in my travels through the internet. Neither of them was a slashfic, though one does have at least one non-canon slash pairing.

Harry Potter and the Wastelands of Time is about Harry making a deal that traps him into a Peggy Sue cycle until he kills Voldemort. Harry levels up quite a bit with hundreds of lifetimes of lost wizarding knowledge, but Voldemort gets there first every time.

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality is, um, kind of a niche thing, maybe. Petunia marries a scientist and Harry grows up as a rationalist child prodigy. Great if the exploration of various principles of rationality doesn't bother you.

Can I choose All of the Above? Gah, that book. It had me in tears at least 3 different times, and I do not cry easily.
