Now that I’ve finished DD and only have to post the epilogue, I was looking back over it last night. I think that anyone who writes fanfic (or original fic, for that matter) has certain parts of a story or certain chapters that they like particularly well.
In DD, I have to say that my favorite chapter is Chapter Twenty-Nine: They shall rise again. I like the way the pacing and the perspectives worked in that one — and, of course, I spent a lot of time on it.
I think my second favorite chapter is the one in which Gareth bursts onto the scene, Chapter Thirteen: And the west moon. I thought it showed a lot of Severus’s growth, too.
Then my third favorite chapter would have to be Chapter Twenty-Eight: Though they sink through the sea. Hermione comes into her own in that chapter, for one, but I also liked the lighter moments in the chapter. And of course, as much as I like snakes (though I do respect them, especially their venom!), it was good to see Hermione destroy Nagini.
And here’s a little Nagini.
And the epilogue will be up very soon, unless lightning strikes me! heh!
