So many things to love about this story--Harry and the ghost writer, of course. I fell in love with Newlin from the start, thinking to myself that he reminded me of the Half-Blood Prince. Worked my noggin hard, trying to figure out a way that he could be Snape, but finally had to give it up. What you did was so unexpected and cunning, you minx!
What I liked most was what you sowed in the reader so far as the Elder Wand was concerned. How it ended up, what really was at work...it's a universal theme that most of us would like to believe about ourself and our actions, but in the end, we make the same discovery as Harry, if we're lucky. You did that so very well. And it was so fitting that Harry had to fix this before he could have the future he wanted.
That last scene...it reminded me of the end of Pelican Brief, where Darby Shaw's waiting on a beach somewhere, and you just know Gray Grantham's gonna show.
Excellent story, Klynie, one of the best of the Games. Rereading it...was double the pleasure, and allowed me to notice all sorts of little things that I didn' that first time. Great job, Dragon! ROAR!!!
