Author’s Note: This one-shot was inspired by AndrewsQuill’s story ‘From the Ashes’, a Harry/Susan Bones fic (by the look of it) where Hermione dies after the battle in the DoM. I’ve nicked the basic concept, ‘cause it’s one I’ve never thought of, tweaked it, and this is it. Second Author’s Note: A variation on ‘Open Wide the Gates of Time: Harry’. Morbius, during one of our many IM chats, once asked me; “Has anyone done a Good!Dark! Dumbledore?” So, we put our heads together (which, oddly enough, made a plank) and figured out that the only one we’d seen was actually one of KafkaExMachina’s drabbles, where Dumbledore uses the Cruciatus on Snape’s Dark Mark, fragging the minds of every Death Eater.

Well done, Ha-” But the Death Eater Hermione had just struck dumb made a sudden slashing movement with his wand; a streak of what looked like purple flame passed right across Hermione’s chest. She gave a tiny “Oh!” as though of surprise and crumpled on to the floor, where she lay motionless. Hermione! ” Harry roared, forgetting everything that was happening around him as he saw her fall. He quickly bolted forward, near-throwing himself to his knees as he looked down at the wet mess that used to be smooth flesh. He reached out with a shaking hand to her throat, feeling for her carotid artery. For a moment that lasted an eternity, he couldn’t feel anything. He didn’t notice Neville kneeling next to him, reach for the other pulse on Hermione’s neck. Dat’s a pulse, Harry. ..” Neville said after a moment. “I’b sure of it.” Harry didn’t feel relief, as he expected he would. All he could feel was a mind-numbing, spirit-crushing despair at seeing Hermione casually dropped during the battle. He turned his head slightly, staring at the Death Eater with pure malice.
