just remember that had voldemort picked neville to kill instead of harry and nevile was the boy who lived/the chosen one if neville had that lightening bolt scar severus snape would still be a death eater

it’s not like he thought being a death eater was wrong — it wasn’t until something directly affected him did he reconsider and idk about you but that is not my definition of “bravery” in the slightest

That…is actually a really good point

I am delighted and honored to announce that my novel Homeland has won the Prometheus Award for best novel, tying with Ramez Naam’s excellent novel Nexus. I am triply honored because this is the third Prometheus I’ve won — the other two being for Little Brother and Pirate Cinema. My sincere thanks to the Libertarian Futurist Society; I’ll see you at the Worldcon in London this year to accept it!
