    Benedictio Amicorum

    Benedictio Amicorum by Mosylu

    Summary: Just after the climax of GoF, Ron and Hermione ask Dumbledore for something–anything–to protect their friend. Oneshot, 2,159 Words.

    Why You Should Care: This is a simple, brief story about the friendship and love that will eventually help get Harry through three years of war, and see him come out the other side as hero instead of a martyr.  The characters are all well done, and the prose slides seamlessly into JKR’s canon, style and theme.

    Why You Might Not Care: We don’t learn anything new or breathtakingly interesting.  It’s a quiet moment and a heartfelt moment, but it’s quite transparent and predictable.  Having said that, it’s a nice little testament to the trio’s friendship and to Dumbledore’s ability to provide some peace of mind in the most frustrating of circumstances.

      Was feeling particularly vulnerable to friendship stories, and then this comes along. The dream was the part that really made it a worth-while read. =] Thanks!

      You know? I think I read this waaaaaaaaay back in the day.

      It’s cute, though, and they are all very well characterised.
