Fic post!

Less than two months before it will be Jo'd, I present my very first post-HBP Potterfic.

The Hero of His Own Life
by Branwyn

fandom: Harry Potter
summary: Dumbledore gen. A not-nearly comprehensive biography of the greatest wizard of the age, and how he got that way. 3700 words

thanks, as always, to lizbee and rj_anderson for betas and handholding. title nicked from Dickens. Not like he's done anything with it lately.

This is just wonderful. There isn't nearly enough good Dumbledore fics out there!

Wow - what an amazing story. I'm so glad that I read it! (And that I read it now, before book 7/) You've managed to convey so much in just a few lines, like the brief description of Dumbledore's acquaintance with Grindelwald, it's so interesting and personal. I know I'll be returning to this one.

This is fabulous. I love the tone and measure, the pensiveness of it.
And it's a really interesting look at the lessons that Albus has learned over the years, and the changes that he has lived through.

This is really beautiful. I know I've read it at least once before, and it left me with a lump in my throat then, too.

I think I like your backstory better than JKR's, actually. And the story of his interaction with Grindelwald...perfect.
