I think the idea of the Headmaster of a school being the only one feared by a villain seeking immortality is fantastic, because children remind us of our mortality. “Dumbledore’s army” of growing children defeating ‘Voldemort’ is great conceptually, as is the idea that Voldemort’s follower chose her child over him, and that’s what took him down. The same thing goes for Lily: Voldemort believed his mother could not have had magic, because she died. Seeking to kill a child who would defeat him, he was destroyed by another mother’s death for her child. Despite my discomfort with some of the Mother Love idealism in HP, the stuff about parenthood as a kind of immortality, about the instinct to protect your child overcoming greed or fear, about children being the next generation who will replace you and that’s okay... Sometimes HP gives good meta.

Possibly I am just justifying why I wrote mpreg. I have no particular problem with mpreg, I’ve read it on occasion, and my discomfort with Let All The Characters Be Men, No Ladies Here Please isn’t something inherent or limited to mpreg. But I’ve only written it once before, and that was for the lulz.

Author’s Notes: This was written for the forever challenge at [livejournal.com profile] dracoharry100. It can be split cleanly into two drabbles, but it works better without the split.
