Poor Hagrid! I always liked him... The battle was really well done. I could see it in my minds eye. Good job!

Awesome combat scene! I'm sad that Hagrid died though. But what a way to go! If only Harry had been there too... ah well.

Holy shit I loved Hagrid in this. Truly an impressive send off for one of the most underestimated characters in the series. It also made me smile how a half giant, ostracized in his own world was almost able to kill Voldemort

JBern replied:

I enjoyed writing Hagrid this way.  He is grossly underused.~Jim

It would have been nice to see Tom squashed like the bug he is, by Hagid falling on him.

Thanks.  Glad you liked it.~Jim

Aha! Another cliche busted indeed! Though I am sort of disappointed that augmented Hagrid didn't get to stick around longer, I am content with how he went down. Like a badass. He will be missed.

So Voldemort's starting to worry about Harry... that could take away from the "take him down while he underestimates me" strategy. Though I doubt Harry can't come up with a new one. :)

Hagrid likes to play with dangerous critters.  He had to have a darker side.~Jim

Still very much enjoying; alas, your betas missed a fair amount.
Cerberus, not cerebus
Isaacs, not Issaccs
St. Mungo's (with apostrophe)
Madame Maxime, not Maxine

Still a gripping story, my compliments!

JBern replied:

As always, thanks.  When I get time to do housekeeping on the story I will look for your reviews as starting points of what needs "fixin".

why would u kill hagrid?

JBern replied:

Because it was necessary for the plot - but damn if he didn't go out in style!~Jim

GFreat chapter. He might have died but HAGRID WENT OUT LIKE A FUCKING PIMP!!!!!! THAT SHIT WAS AWESOME

JBern replied:

One of my favorite moments in the fic.  It was raw, brutal and powerful along the lines of the Snape and Harry fight later.~Jim

Good grief. That was the single greatest Hagrid death scene I've ever read. In a lot of Azkaban fics, Harry is supposed to have killed him off (how? He's a half-giant for goodness sake) and in other stories it's very much a case of Hagrid dying in the final battle under vague circumstances. This was excellent because the fight scene was visceral and tough, with Albus's lost arm made insignificant but Hagrid's heroic death. The way you had Hagrid take down Voldy that way was superb. This fic was a little slow in terms of action (sorry, but Bungle just got there so much faster!) and now it's really flying.

JBern replied:

Normally Hagrid's a liability in most stories.  I wanted to give the reader something more - a feeling of 'Hell yeah!  Now that's what I'm talking about!' Hopefully this fight scene and several others have delivered that.~Jim

Excellent fight scene. A very smart battle on
both sides, well worth the wait.

JBern replied:

Glad you liked the battle.  I wanted Hagrid to have a certain fierceness to him.~Jim

If Hagrid has to die, you've given him an most rewarding "way to go."

The whole battle was remarkable, violent, gritty, realistic, if a battle of magic can be realistic.

Terrific fic!

JBern replied:

Far too often Hagrid's death is done in Harry's dream sequence with Voldemort torturing him and allowing Harry to watch.  I wanted something radically different.  I am quite pleased with the results.~Jim

Holy.... Wow...

JBern replied:

Back in my old Dungeons and Dragons days.  I always loved a good monster melee.  I wanted that battle scene to be everything but the kitchen sink.  It came off as well as I could hope for.~Jim

Excellent fight scene! Best Hagrid fight scene I've read in a long time.

JBern replied:

Thanks.  Hagrid is so underutilized.  He has (had) an affinity for dangerous critters...

Thanks again~Jim
