    Precious Things

    Precious Things by Paperchain

    Summary: Honorable Mention in the Phoenix Rising “A Phoenix Moment” Fan Fiction Contest. Dorcas Meadowes faces Voldemort. Oneshot, 1,492 Words.

    Why You Should Care: If you remember the details of canon at all, you’ll already know the end to this one, and so it becomes all about the journey. It is both hopeless yet hopeful, and right to the end we are reminded that — just as there will always be true villains — there will always be heroes willing to stand in their way. Dorcas Meadowes is no hero of old, here, but just an ordinary person trying to do what’s right even when they know they can’t win. This story is far more general than it looks at first glance. Inspiring.

    Why You Might Not Care: Beware angst ahead, and one of those endings that tries to be as uplifting as it can without being a happy ending. The characters here aren’t really the point, just the means for the message.
