Chapter 32 nearly ready!
The big climactic finish of YOTC is done! It only remains to finish the scene, and then the chapter will be ready, and once that is up, the story will be NEARLY FINISHED, W00T! It'll just be tying up loose ends, and tbh, I don't want to spend too much time on that.
Upload won't happen tonight - too knackered. I need to go over it and code it properly. But it might be ready tomorrow though. In the mean time, here's a selection of the Best Bits.
Please note, there is a mild DH spoiler in the chapter, which is implied in the trailers. Which means you should HURRY UP AND READ THE BOOK ALREADY.
“Six students out of bounds, two of whom are prefects, one of whom's grievously injured, along with their Defence teacher, a stray dog and a man who's meant to be dead apprehended in the act of apparently abducting one of them and you're asking what I'm doing here?” Snape raised an eyebrow. “Miss Granger, it's not me who needs to account for their presence.”
“Who let that animal in?” Snape asked, folding his arms.
“He's mine,” said Lupin quickly. “I couldn't keep him at school due to health and safety regulations, but I take him out here all the time. Marlie encountered him earlier this year; they've bonded surprisingly well.”
“I wasn't talking about the dog,” Snape growled.
“You – Animaga – not possible!” Snape cried. “Miss Lovegood, it takes years of study and prodigious magical talent to achieve that; intelligent as you are, you are surely not capable – oh dear god.”
“Snape?” Sirius called up, confused. “Why aren't you dead yet? Shouldn't he be disembowelling you about now?”
“I can't help it if I'm an inspiration,” Sirius countered. “And if I may say so, Snape, that's the girliest bloody Patronus I've ever seen.”
Despite Dementors and imminent death breathing down the back of his neck, quite literally, he found himself not only daring to hope again, but beseiged with an awful lot of happy thoughts, not to mention the overwhelming desire to live.
One look at Snape, and Harry realised that perhaps for the first time ever, he and Snape were in total agreement on something. It wasn't that Harry minded his godfather going out with Marlie Lovegood, exactly; after all if anyone deserved to be happy, it was Sirius, but Harry really preferred not having to watch.
Enjoy, folks. :)
(Likely to be spoilery comments too.)
