you know, i do love the fact that you have used second-person pov for this, it seems like the only way to write this brand of dumbledore: repentant, tormented, haunted not by who he is, but by what he must do in order to
dumbledore. when he thinks of sirius the sting is particularly sharp and clear:
In the back of your mind, you know that while Sirius would die for Harry, he cannot live for him.
and the constant presence of snape. and the misleading/protecting of harry. and aberforth, aberforth... these men were all so damaged, all of them.
(twisted, evil rowling.)

Thank you! I'm glad you liked the second person. I'd never used it before, but nothing else would work for this. First person feels too much like a diary, and third-person wasn't close enough to the character (not to mention all the ambiguous pronouns).
these men were all so damaged, all of them.
I agree completely. Even though Harry got his happy ending, so many of them didn't. Doomed from the beginning, because it
to happen the way it did. *sniffle*
Thanks again. :D
