Story Summary: Shortly after Dumbledore’s death, Draco ponders his fate and begins to question the Dark Lord’s wishes. This is my version of Book 7 using JKR’s plotlines and ZERO original characters! Begins right after The HalfBlood Prince.

Gioia’s Rec:
I was absolutely delighted with this fic.  DMHG is not a pairing I frequently read, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  The author not only sells the pairing, she also did a fantastic job creating a captivating alternative to Deathly Hallows.  The fic is written pre-DH, a fact which I found myself repeatedly re-checking due to several prophetically on-target plot points. The rapid pacing in this story is maintained throughout the fic without sacrificing careful character development and shrewdly crafted plot twists.  I’m particularly happy with the depiction of Harry.  Snape’s characterization was a stroke of brilliance, though.  I’m rather in awe of how well he was written.
