Novel Challenge: What Is The Bravest Moment In Literature ?
So I've fallen head first back into the black whole that is fan fiction (@shannonl5 I can feel you jumping up and down from here.) But it reminded me about one of the bravest moments in literary history.

The moment when Hermione Granger obliviates her parents to save their lives.

And that is the bravest thing I have ever read. Because obliviating her parents means she will never exist to the people who gave her life. Her first loves. The people who cried during her first steps, who threw her a birthday every year, who sat with her every single minute she was sick. The people who will love her no matter what, who always took her side. She doesn't exist to them anymore.
She made herself an orphan in the worst possible way just to keep them alive.
And that is the bravest, most heart wrenching thing I have ever read. Because giving up everything for those you love is bravery.

So my fellow book lovers I need to know...What is your "bravest moment in literary history?!?!

Make a card about the moment and tagg me in it!! This way we can gush about books we love and even give each other new ones to read!

Ahhh this. I love love this! I'll have to think about it as well. I think one of the second best ones from that book was when Harry went to give himself over to Voldemort, the part where he's walking with his parents. I want to think of something unique for this though... I'll keep this in my mind. Tagging all the Potter nerds so they can see this too :) @Danse @LizaNightshade @ButterflyBlu@FannyWard @MorleeCorielus @TerrecaRiley @AleciaReedy @Danse @LizaNightshade @MorleeCorielus @Luci546 @EduardoPontier @AutummUmphries

Likewise as ButterflyBlu I was going to think about this but I have decided to go with my first answer. I feel this must be the answer of my heart. The bravest moment I have ever read was in The Lord of the Rings. It was the moment Samwise Gamgee realized that Frodo could not go not further, "Come, Mr. Frodo! I can not carry it for you, but I can carry you". Samwise was not the character who most people saw as the hero of this tale. For me however he was. He was steadfast and true. Willing to surmount every obstacle to save Frodo, destroy the ring, and save Middle Earth. He would keep coming no matter the cost and would never give up. He is the example I try to live by at life's worst moments. A quiet courage that never wavers.
