No, your empathy's fine! Astoria cuts a very pathetic figure in spite of the horrible things she's done. She is, as you mentioned, eleven and very much manipulated into putting faith before... well, the magical equivalent of science. Not to mention that even the high cost of the ritual is payable for her because her upbringing doesn't view people like Hermione--or even other Purebloods who "break the rules"--as people. People have failed her at every step of the way, and this is the consequence.

Lockhart, on the other hand, is just gross :P And Quirrell continues to be useless :'D But better that than dead, like in canon! I guess?

Thank you for reading! The last chapter is up now, too. I'll link it above.
