http://synecdochic.livejournal.com/182006.html -- MORE CAMMIE!!

Is it just me, or do HP fics that involve a character who has been steeped in magic for all of their life losing memories and also not remembering magic irritate you? Granted some magic is going to be the kind where you have to remember exactly what you're doing in order to do it, but SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN AROUND MAGIC ALL THEIR LIVES IS NOT GOING TO SUDDENLY "REVERT" TO THE ZOMG IT IS MAGIC STATE THAT A MUGGLE-RAISED PERSON WOULD BE IN.

The character is walking, talking, and lacing up their own shoes, ffs.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
