Disclaimer: Harry Potter is the intellectual property of JK Rowling, and the fiscal property of JK Rowling, Bloomsbury Publishing, and Warner Bros. No profit has been made from this work. 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. So, this is the other version of ‘Open Wide the Gates of Time’, where Dumbledore’s not as much of an arsehole... I know, it’s hard to believe, but them’s the breaks. Silencio! ” cried Hermione and the man’s voice was extinguished. He continued to mouth through the hole in his mask, but no sound came out. He was thrust aside by his fellow Death Eater. Petrificus Totalus! ” shouted Harry, as the second Death Eater raised his wand. His arms and legs snapped together and he fell forwards, face down on to the rug at Harry’s feet, stiff as a board and unable to move. 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.

The Death Eater reached up and tore off his mask, revealing the long, pale, twisted face of Antonin Dolohov. He gestured at Hermione, then at Harry, then at Harry again. Even though he was still silenced, his meaning was clear.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
