Thank you! I love fics about Harry and Dumbledore too. :D

I'm not entirely convinced that if Voldemort hadn't used Harry's blood (thereby giving Harry an out) Dumbledore would've been able to go through with his plan to sacrifice Harry. Actually, I guessed Dumbledore would die in HBP before it was published for precisely that reason. He needed himself out of the picture because he didn't trust himself not to interfere. Of course, it turns out he was dying anyways, but I bet part of him was relieved not to have to be there in the end, which is frustrating, because that wasn't what Harry got angry with him about, but anyway... Gryffindor tendency to blame everything on oneself, that's what it is. :-P Because of course Harry was going to kill Voldemort or die trying Horcrux or no Horcrux.

That is actually something I do think about a lot. If the blood thing hadn't happened would Dumbledore be able to sacrifice Harry...if what he said at the end of OotP about valuing Harry's life more than others peoples potentially lost lives was true I wouldn't think so, but at the same time I don't know if I could see Dumbledore putting his personal feelings above the war. My thoughts on that really go around in circles. XD
