Grindeldore Big Bang - Only You by Oshun, Chapter 4 - Quest for the Deathly Hallows

Title: Only You, Chapter 4 – Quest for the Deathly Hallows
Author: Oshun (heartofoshun)
Rating: R (this chapter is rated R)
Word Count: Total approximate length 14-15,000 in five chapters; this chapter 3,185.
Artists: fabledtruant, ghostangel; see ghostangel's art work here: http://grindeldorebb.livejournal.com/6777.html [Will include links to other artwork when I receive them.]
Fanmixer: queenofthebobs Find the the mix here.
Extraordinary Beta: ignoblebard; he is my "go to" man! Thank you so much, my friend!
Summary: This is the story of how Dumbledore meets, falls in love with and loses Grindelwald. Pure canon (very close anyway, if one includes book verse, JKR interviews and my own relentless extrapolation!), which means it cannot have a happy ending. All and all I hope it projects the old adage that it is better to have loved and lost than never loved at all. Teaser: ”Magic like his is a marvel that I have only encountered a few times in my life and that was my first experience. I had no defense against it. My own magic strained and buzzed beneath my skin in a barely controllable response.”

( Albus watches them go for a moment, unsure of what he is feeling. There was nothing remarkable about the encounter, and yet...and yet something that seems to have been weighing on his chest since his mother’s death feels ever-so-slightly lighter all of a sudden. )

Grindeldore Big Bag Round One Statistics

I thought I'd check in (if it's allowed! Mods?) and give a little bit of an update on the status on how things are going with the Grindeldore Big Bang.

Rough drafts were due yesterday and we have two authors who are participating!  Two is much better than zero and I'm not disappointed at all!  The start of the year has been tough on us all, so it really wasn't that unexpected.  I'm really excited to see what stories we have coming for us.

One artist has checked in so far; we'll see if there are anymore :)

This does, however, lead me to my next question!  I had asked a while back if people wanted this split into two groups: Some wanted earlier in the ear, some wanted it in summer with it ending in December.  We're getting a little close to that sign up date:  It would be in July and ending in December.  Are people still interested in this particular set of dates?

I could post a reminder at the start of the next sign-ups, but I feel like I'm spamming this community as it is D:

Thoughts and Questions from a newbie! (About Grindeldore)

Okay. Let me just start by saying how jealous I am of all of you here that were present during JK Rowling's outing of Dumbledore. I just finished reading that thread and, even though I'm 3 years late to this fandom, I was jumping up and down in happiness. That thread is definitely a classic thread for many newbies to this pairing, like myself. So I want to thank all of you for that.

Anyway, so I have heard about Harry Potter in the past but never read it due to High School being busy and stuff. I was always interested in it though due to its popularity but didn't do anything until I decided early this year to purchase all the books. I finished reading all 7 books recently without reading any spoilers online. I didn't even know JK Rowling outed Dumbledore until I read about it in this community. The first thing I did was google "Dumbledore Grindelwald" and it led me to this website.
