August First: Seventh Book and Spoilers
All right, all right. Stop hexing me. I know it’s August 1st.

SIYE will now start posting Post-DH stories.

So how did everybody like the last book, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?” I was quite saddened that Hedwig didn’t survive. The innocents are always the first casualties of war.

Torak came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 07:03AM to say:

I wasn't too impressed with the book itself; the writing was rather lazy, I thought. The plot revolved around a few things that would have worked well had they not become cliche in fanfic, and I think Ron interrupted the scene near the start far too early.
Other than that, it was fairly good.



QwayMelqnu came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 08:26AM to say:

I didn't think it was too bad. The very first impression I had when I finished it was that the book was good until the epilogue, but after having a week to let it sink in, I'm not as disappointed as I was before.

Overall I think it was a good culmination of a series that was meant for younger readers. Yeah I would've liked to see a more in-depth epilogue so I could find out how some of the other people dealt with the outcome, but luckily I know of the world of fanfiction, so I know that I'll be able to get some of that insight from the imagination of others (and myself if I'm so inspired).

I have to say though, that the deaths that hit me the most were Dobby, Remus and Tonks. I bawled my eyes out after Dobby, but not so much for the Lupin's (which is only because there wasn't much detail provided as to how they died and how other people reacted).

Hard to belive it's over, but good to know that fanfiction will live on...not to mention 2 more movies and a theme park to look forward to. :) - Qway

I couldn't believe when she killed Fred!!! You're not supposed to kill off the comic relief!! I did like the epilogue, for what it was. It would have been nice to know what happens to every character, but for a bit of 'happily ever after' fluff, it worked very well. Overall, I thought the book was amazing. True, it ended up being like quite a few fanfics, but that's because many fanfic authors write what they think JKR will, and she left quite a lot of hint about what would happen... so I don't think DH lost any quality from being 'too much like fan fiction'. I really liked how the Deathly Hallows were completely unpredicted -- everyone thought they'd be the Horcruxes. Well, overall... I COMPLETELY LOVED IT!



xenowriter came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 08:44AM to say:

i think it was kinda rushed and a lot of deaths come on Kill one twin but keep draco alive and its kinda sad that the series has ended but it was pretty good all in all



Spenser Hemmingway came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 09:07AM to say:

Overall it was very enjoyable, but sometimes anticlimactic and a bit too bloody in too many places. Everything that I have and will write has now become Alternative Universe. Fred and George are still running their joke shop; Ron is playing a saxophone in his band while Hermione runs her elementary school; Harry and Ginny build the finest racing brooms in Europe; and Spenser sleeps with one eye open thinking that someone really is serious about killing off the comic relief. I am still debating whether to alter the two Potter children's names to Albus and Lily.



CodeRomance came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 09:09AM to say:

Over all the book was good, the only death that really had any affect on me was Dobby's and Hedwig's. I was actually expecting more deaths to accure. It didn't suprise me overly much that Fred died. When George got injured I knew something would happen to Fred too because, well you can't just let one be hurt and the other walk free. I was disapointed that Ginny didn't play a bigger role...but I think that came from too much expectations from fanfic. And I didn't really like the epilogue at all. I was very disapointed with that. Also Severes death...it wasn't suprising, but his story was very suprising. Over all it was good, but I am sad that it's the end...but hopefully fanfiction will live on! CodeRomance



Soccer Devil22 came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 10:15AM to say:

I really liked the book. The idea of the Deathly Hallows was about as surprising as finding out about Horcruxes. Although, I'm confused. Harry was the seventh Horcrux? I though Voldemort had made seven prior to his attack on the Potters. Also, If Harry was the seventh Horcrux, then that meant there were actually eight pieces of Voldemort;s soul. Think about it: the diary, the locket, the ring, the cup, the snake (Did they ever mention Nagini dying? I don't remember it.), the diadem, Harry, and then the piece inside Voldemort. Count it. there are eight different pieces of Voldmort's soul. The thing is, to my uderstanding, when the curse rebounded on Voldemort when Harry was a baby, he should have used up one Horcrux, right? That being said. for a split second between the time he died and the time his ghost/soul form left the Potter's, he had nine Horcruxes. Unless I'm just going to deep into things, which I probally am. However, I don't think you can deny that at one point, Voldemort had eight pieces of his soul. Besides that confusing part, I loved the book. Although I was surprised that Harry respected Snape enough to make his name, the middle name of one of his children. Albus Servus Potter was the one thing that I would have never imagined Pre-DH. Albus (sure), James (expected), Lily (expected), Anyway, like I said in a previous comment. It's been a hell of a time and I've enjoyed the whole damn ride. LONG LIVE J. K. ROWLING LONG LIVE HARRY J. POTTER! LONG LIVE HP FANFICTION! LONG LIVE SIYE! AND LONG LIVE H/G FANFIC'S! ~Jeff~



BeyondRedHorizons came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 10:38AM to say:

In retrospect, I don't think it was ever really realistic to expect Ginny to play a large role in the DH. To describe Harry as constantly thinking about Ginny and pondering the nature of their relationship - the most obvious means whereby her decreased prominence might be rectified - would really have detracted from the overall sense of danger and adventure that have been staples of the entire series, and to have included Ginny in any other means really would have made something of a mockery of the conclusion of the HBP, and of everything that Ginny came to represent to Harry in it. . I was a little upset that there wasn't a reunion scene post-Voldemort, but not surprised. The reality of the situation is that Ginny has lost a brother, and Harry another surrogate parent. Ginny has almost been killed, and watched her mother kill in retaliation. Harry has walked like a lamb to the slaughter, died and come alive, and then fought and killed the man who murdered his parents. The couple sit on the (figurative) ruins of their school, mere minutes away from having fought in a full scale war. Quite frankly, I don't think JKR was up for writing the kind of reunion scene the circumstances demanded, or that the majority of her readers would have been up for reading it.



ginnymwp came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 10:51AM to say:

I think the book was great. I don't think you can say it was rushed when the woman has been working on the plotline for 17 years. It all fitted together and I thought the last 300 pages were extremely exciting. However, I was dissapointed that there wasn't more Harry and Ginny stuff. Overall loved the book though, but half-blood prince remains my favourite.



hot48cricket came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 10:56AM to say:

Hedwig and Dobby's death devasted me. I'm glad to see that Harry's first friend - Hagrid - survived, and that Harry & Ginny got back together...



lecook4 came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 11:32AM to say:

I have to agree that Dobby and Hedwig were the saddest parts of the book. After all we've been through in the past with Lucius and Draco, I was surprised that there was not more meat to their involvement. It felt like she was just tying off loose ends... especially with PERCY! Where the heck did he come from after all these years and the fact that they just let him waltz right back into their loving arms? Come on - that was a big disappointment to me. I expected something more out of the Percy saga. The end of his part made the whole saga seem pointless. It really didn't matter about Percy at all in the end. I also expected more background on Petunia. So she was teased by Snape as a child. That's it? I felt the whole Deathly Hallows part was too much to add to the final book. Between that and the continued hunt for the horcruxes, it was just too much. I would rather have had her spend more time on the development of the characters and the conclusion of the horcruxes and Voldy than go off into this new Deathly Hallows thing. I'm probably the only one who thinks this way, so do your your worst at my comments. I did like the book, but I missed the other characters.



sapphire200182 came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 12:09PM to say:

Well, in a nutshell, (deep breath):

Hedwig's death = inconsequential incidental, BAD

Voldy's Rise to Power = too fast to believe, the Aurors aren't THAT dumb...BAD

Anarchy and Dystopian World = soooo cliched... BAD

Most plot twists = done to death in fanfiction...BAD

Overall writing style = lazy, like Torak said, love scenes are STILL like stilted puppy love...BAD

Deathly Hallows = overcomplicated factor in an overcomplicated world, PLUS it is almost identical to the three gadgets in Transformers Energo...BAD

Misc. Deaths = cruel, but there you go...NEUTRAL

As a climax to 17 years of Potter = acceptable, but only readable to find out what happened...NEUTRAL

Sorry, I forgot...o Overall score: TROLL



MyGinevra came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 12:15PM to say:

I loved it. Period. I wanted more Ginny, but her role was done well. The kiss was beautiful, very emotional. I got choked up every time Harry thought of her and watched her on the Map. IMO the book is a masterpiece, except for the epilogue, which I was happy to have but was the weakest part of the book.



luke0311 came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 12:17PM to say:

I agree totally with lecook4 about the Hallows. As JKR is so fond of chess references she should understand the statement The board is set, and I think after HBP that should have been the situation we found ourselves in. Instead she wasted valuable book space to illuminate something that was totally unnecessary. I would have traded that entire plot line for a scant page on the H/G reunion in a heartbeat!



cwarbeck came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 01:04PM to say:

Lynn, I agree with you about the Hallows - HBP left us focused wholly on the Horcruxes, and then the Hallows suddenly came out of nowhere. As a result, I thought that they muddled the plot. Plus, I found it incredible that Voldemort, who supposedly knew more about immortality than anyone else, didn't even know about them! except for the Elder Wand - and he even got that one wrong! If he had all three, then he would have been the master of Death, no matter what happened to his Horcruxes. Lots of other little things that disappointed me (the lack of H/G time being the least of them, surprisingly, since I was prepared for that; but then again, who else wanted to hit Ron over the head for interrupting their kiss?), including the rather aimless endless wandering through the woods, the sudden OOC of some characters (Remus wanting to abandon a pregnant Tonks!), and the seemingly heavy reliance on having Harry or the trio fortuitously appearing at the right place at the right time. Talk about serendipity. Not to say I didn't enjoy it - the scene where Harry finally opens the Snitch at the close, and the fact that the last thing he thought about was Ginny's blazing look before he got hit by AK were some of the outstanding portions of the book. I won't go into the whole Snape/Lily thing nor the Epilogue, as I would take up too much space. :)



hjp74 came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 01:10PM to say:

overall i enjoyed the book. However i was a bit disaponted just how far hrry seamed to push ginny away now i knew that she wouldt come on the quest for them for lots of resons however when they did spend time together he just seamed so ambilivant towards her ok so they got one kiss which ron completly misunderstood (I know harry not exactly good with girs but ron make him look a genius) as iin my poion & i may be way of the mark thta kiss was more about trying to tell harry that she still loved him & when this was over she would be there for him & so give him something to live for of course the end result is that harry makes ginny cry.. The bit that relly surprised me was that after spending most of the year following her dot on the map as a way of reminding himself thta she ok when he dose meet her in the room of requirment dose he rush to greet her no he pretty much ignors her then when she trying to stay at hogwaorts rather than sent home out of the way harry insted of expressing his felling & telling her why he needs her to do this just shkes his head at her a wllks of its like ginnys gone from being his best source of comfort & the girl who made him happyer than he had ever been to going back to rons little sister who has to be wrapped up in cotton wool & cant be told anything because she wouldnt understand then when it all over i though we would at least get a recosilation between the two of them but no he goes off with ro & hermion again for chat with the headmaster then it 19 years later & they are happly married (which is a big plus though i still cant see harry as an auro as i just cant see harry or ron for that matter dealing with the papper work) Alos i want to know how did harry ever make ginny agree to calling there son Albus Serverus. May be ive just got used to reding exeptionall Harry ginny fan fics on siye in the two years science HBP but the way ginny just seamed to be pushed into the background (I think dean & lunner had more time in harrys company than ginny) relly got to me so overall about an 8 but from a H/G POV its got to be a 4 and then only because they got to be together at then end & harry got what he always wanted a loving family. Jmaes



longhorn came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 01:21PM to say:

I had this feeling JKR was under two big constraints, one with the time deadline, and one with the word count. DH felt rushed from both those POVs. The end was quite anticlimactic. Imagine LOTR ending with the One Ring falling into the fires of Mount Doom - that would cut about a quarter of the book off, and the best part IMO. Instead of spending so much real estate on Dumbledore's past (and Snape's), I would have liked to see more in terms of post final battle stuff - how are the main characters, and the wizarding world as a whole, reacting to the outcome. All in all, JKR wrote a very good youth action/adventure book - the sad thing is, for me at least, I had hoped for a great book, and she did not deliver. She skimmed on top of the action, focusing on the events, while I hoped for more in terms of character development. I think it is a good ending to the series, but I hoped for more. Harry comes out of this as a leaf in the wind, an accidental hero in a Good vs. Evil battle he didn't understand, played like a fiddle by Dumbledore et comp. even after D's death. I had hoped to see more of a "rite of passage", a growing up story, a story of Harry's evolution from an ickle kid to an adult real life hero. On the other hand, if I were to drop my expectations, and cease requesting something of this book I shouldn't expect considering the previous books, it was enjoyable in a summer popcorn movie kind of way. I think the only time it actually managed to reach any kind of actual emotional depth was with Dobby's death - I hoped I could say the same thing with the kiss scene or any other HG scene, but the kiss scene felt so out of context and basically just droped in there for some reason. The lack of any kind of post-victory conclusion was again disappointing. The epilogue was remarkable only in its lack of emotional depth. Harry ends up the same as he started, always reactive but never proactive. Well, long live (AU) fanfiction! And a big big Thank You to JKR for the world and the characters she gave us.



DQBunny came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 01:53PM to say:

I enjoyed the book overall, but I agree that the Deathly Hallows left me confused. At first, I thought the Resurrection Stone was simply a retake on the Philosopher's Stone. Also, everything about Dumbledore's past seemed to come out of nowhere. I wish we'd had a chance to learn more about the founders even though I did enjoy learning about Dumbledore himself. Even though the story is told from Harry's POV, I wish we had a little insight into key events like Ginny, Neville and Luna trying to steal what they thought was Gryffindor's sword, the Potterweek broadcast, Snape as Headmaster, things like that. I fall into the camp of people who actually liked the epilogue. It brings things full circle to the very first book and I loved the moment Harry had with Albus regarding the sorting at Hogwarts. It's just one glimpse at the life that they gained, and I think as fanfic authors, we have so much to work with now. I also like the fact that JKR has been very forthcoming about their lives post-Hogwarts. It makes for some great plot bunnies!



Pigwidgeon11 came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 02:22PM to say:

I personally enjoyed this book immensely. I thought it was the best in the series because of the nonstop action, and of course there was more Harry/Ginny!!! LOL. I think the deaths of Dobby and Hedwig hit fans (including and especially me) very hard, because they were just facts of the book and we kind of figured they'd always be there. And how can you kill off a twin? That's like psychologically damaging to George. And Lupin and Tonks just had a kid - though we know he turns out all right seeing as how he was snogging Fleur and Bill's daughter. I loved the book, and very nearly cried when I finished the epilogue. Never again will we have a new Harry Potter novel to read! I was most pleased, of all the surprises in the book, to learn of Snape's past. One of my friends had a theory that he was in love with Lily, and I nearly screamed when I realized that she was right. I think we were all kind of hoping he was still a hero, and it was nice to learn he had only killed Dumbledore because Dumbledore had asked him too. The long wait was worth it, and I only wish JKR was writing more. :(



Ginebra Wood came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 04:00PM to say:

I liked the book. For me Hedwig and Dobby´s deaths were two of the saddest. I cried like a little girl with the lost of one of my favorite characters, my Fred and I got a little lost with the thing about the horcruxes and the Deathly Hallows. It was good to know about Harry´s cloak but a part of that... I can´t complain about the epilogue, I liked it minus the names of Albus and Scorpius, the poor ones. Thanks Jo for the books and for the wonderful time I spend with everyone of them.



Victor Aagaard came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 05:00PM to say:

I thought it was brilliant, except... All the leading fan theories - Harry is a Horcrux, Snape is good, RAB = Regulus A Black, Slytherin's locket was the one they found in the fifth book, but Dung stole it - they all turned out to be true. You'd think with all the hype between books six and seven, Rowling would make things a little harder to guess. That's pretty much my fault, though, for going to all these fanfiction sites and reading about all the theories. XD Rowling did do a good job with the whole Deathly Hallows thing. Nobody would have ever guessed that.



The Seeker came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 06:02PM to say:

Sapphire, Torak, and cwarbeck pretty much summarized my feelings about DH. Though, to the lazy writing comment, I would add that it seemed both JKR and her editors were very tired of the series and wanted to end it. They made some interesting plot choices, by introducing new themes (the deathly hallows and remorse) and leaving existing threads unfinished. It was nice to see the series finished, but I wish it had been done in a more consistent and complete manner.



DebbieO came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 09:03PM to say:

I enjoyed the book with three exceptions. Number one, as a few of you mentioned, I too thought the hallows were an unnecessary complication to an already plenty complicated plot. Two, the epilogue was far too vague. And finally, the book had a rushed feel with too much happening too fast. I expected Harry to just kind of fall into things, so that wasn't a shock. I knew Gin would be left behind, but I would have really liked some emotional connection beyond the kiss and memories of it. Where's the friendship? I was completely shocked by Lily/Snape because I always thought that was a very far fetched theory. Still, overcoming death, self-sacrifice, being a horcrux, the blood's role...I love that the fans, myself included were able to pick up on her clues and draw some logical conclusions. That made it FUN. I also loved Albus' history. It made him much more understandable and the older books more powerful to me.



MG and NerdLee came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.01 - 11:24PM to say:

Never read the suicide chapter out loud. I was crying that whole chapter. We read the entire book (minus 3 chapters when I fell asleep and Mia stole the book from me) out loud. ! The book was amazing. The deaths hit me hard. Not so much Remus and Tonks because we didn't see them die, but for heaven's sake, they just had a baby! Dobby, I was devastated. Hedwig, I love her, but as soon as Harry said "We'll be gone soon and you'll be able to fly again" I knew she'd die. For a brief time, Mia and I thought Hagrid died and were on the verge of depression. Overall, it was a huge success. Absolutly brilliant, the whole thing.



Fire came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.02 - 07:37AM to say:

I really enjoyed the book. The complaints about fans guessing parts of the plot are fair, but with that many fans, somebody's going to get it right. I never expected Ginny to play a large part in the book. H/G fanfiction has built her up to have a far bigger part than she was ever going to. I cried so much over Dobby. He was so heroic. And I don't understand why people are saying Harry wasn't a true hero. He was prepared to die to save the world and in my opinion thats pretty heroic. Oh, and even if Voldemort had known about the Deathly Hallows, it wouldn't have mattered. To be the master of death was to understand that everybody had to die and to accept that. Voldemort could never have accepted death. The book was a fitting end to a great series, and I loved it. I loved the epilogue too. Alright, it would have been nice to have more information, but the epilogue wasn't the place for it. Personally, I think that an epilogue that simply listed who married who, who worked where, who had kids, what they were called, etc. would have been incredibly dull. The epilogue brought the story full circle. I enjoyed it.



pottyboutpotter came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.02 - 09:41AM to say:

I really enjoyed DH, it was a great read and I savoured every word, however I still was't satisfied at the end - still lot's of questions unanswered. Thank godness for fan fiction as this will lead to many more great stories with many different points of view. I wasn't real keen on the last chapter the first time I read it I thought it was a tacky end to such a wonderful series, on the second read through I liked it more - perhaps it will grow on me, although I'm a little confussed as to who Victoire belongs to, someone mentioned above that she was Bill's daughter, but I though she was Percy's as he was the only other Weasley (apart from Ron & Ginny) mentioned in the Chapter. What do you think?



sapphire200182 came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.02 - 10:27AM to say:

Who else here was shocked by the revelation concerning Ariana Dumbledore?

I couldn't believe it, when I read about her, I just didn't believe that JK would introduce such a thorny subject matter in a kiddie book.

Soccer Devil22 came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.03 - 12:21AM to say:

Cwarbeck, I agree with you that yes the Hallows came out of nowhere. But (and not to sound like an Anti-H/G) so did the whole Harry liking Ginny thing. I mean, think about it: 1st yr- they mention Ginny like once. 2nd yr-yeah Harry saves her from the Chamber, all fine and good. 3rd/4th- Ginny practically falls off the earth and is only mentioned as hit or miss; meaning while Harry has a crush on Cho. 5th- Ginny is mentioned a little bit due to the D.A. and the battle at the D.o.M. but otherwises is an important character. 6th- Harry, out of nowhere, has a 'mysterious beast' (which is never explained to us, might I add although I guess we could assume and call it hormones) in his stomach that tells him he likes Ginny. A years worth of mental stress on Harry, then... BAM! They kiss in the Common Room. And... like most relationships... they're done in like a month. Also, how many people saw the idea of Horcruxes coming? I sure as hell didn't. Let's face, Miss Rowling has a nack for throwing ideas out there that we never would have saw coming. That's what I think, anyway. ~Jeff~



Penny Flamel came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.03 - 12:43AM to say:

So much to say, fisrt of all i agree with cwarbeck, deathly hallows was a bit much, she probably should have focused on character development. Also a bit disappointed that there was so little giny/harry interaction, i mean , do they just BAM, GET MARRIED HAVE KIDS? The epilogue was also so disappointing, it was terribly vague, and there really isn't much feeling to it. I liked the book, cried my eyes out over dobby, hedwig, fred, remus, tonks, moody abit, i also loved the action, it was interesting, ah well i suppose the vagueness gives authors of fan fic more room to write can fan fic...ooh and snape/liliy...WOW, thought that was ome delusional theory..wow, ah well at leat harry got to stick it up to moldyshorts before, the AK, rebounded on him, that was goood...would love to write forever about the book..



pwykersotz came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.03 - 02:14PM to say:

I loved this final book. It's my new favorite in the series. Reading all the above comments, I don't understand all of the complaints that I'm reading. The Hallows came out of nowhere? Only the resurrection stone itself wasn't foreshadowed in some way. Not enough Harry/Ginny? She was never built to be a major character. It used too many fanfic plotlines? Honestly, if we're going to read 6/7ths of a story then write billions of words worth of fiction based on that, I have a hard time believing that they wouldn't be similar. I loved reading about Dumbledore's history. It made him a much more complete character while at the same time fleshing out Harry and his thoughts on the man. I also loved the courage JK had to kill off one of my favorite bit characters (Tonks). It was painful, and that made it good. Too much of a happy ending makes a bad story. Harry using two of the Unforgivables, Living Fire, Neville, the Trio robbing the highest security section of Gringotts and riding out on a Dragon...all awesome. The one complaint I will make is that the book did slow down in the middle. Harry, Ron, and Hermione in the forest alone doesn't work quite as well as it does when they are surrounded by others. Oh, and the thing I love most of all. The story is now complete, but the universe is more open than ever to fanfiction. Write away!

I dont get why you all are complaining about this book. I mean come one, just because the Hallows seemed a little random, doesnt mean it didnt work out, and fit in! I thought the book was amazing, beginning to end.

I LOVED it!!!!!!!! I was very mad when Harry and Ginny were kissing in Ginny's room then Ron "accidentally" walked in and then yelled at Harry. That made me mad!!! I love the epilogue!! James is really funny!! I was really sad when Tonks, Lupin, and Fred died. *tear* Again, I loved it. It was probably my favorite!! (Half Blood Prince coming in a close second)



anna_banana came out of the woodwork on 2007.08.27 - 07:11AM to say:

overall DH was quite good, for an older reader like myself i found it somewhat anti-climatic, but for a younger audience (to whom it was always intended) its a good end to the series. my only negative comment - is it me, or i JKR better at writing animal deaths than human ones? i mean, i loved dobby - and i was sad when he died, but tonks (and to some extent her spouse) was(were) my favourite character(s), yet when they died i wasnt that upset. *shrugs* o well, i still hope she writes other books : maybe not HP, but something completely different!

amblewat came out of the woodwork on 2007.09.11 - 12:23AM to say:

I loved the new book. I was really mad that Ron interrupted Ginny and Harry...but he is Ron. What I also thought was brillient was that we learned that Perfect Dumbledore had flaws. I wouild have liked to have a bit more detail about the trio and Ginny in the epilouge. But I don't think it is that big of a deal. JKR you have created a masterpiece that we have all loved. And to those Harry/Hermione shippers. WE TOLD YOU SO!

I understand how many of you feel about the epilogue, i must confess i didn`t like it at first, but eventough it wasn`t what i expected, i realized that´s the way it is! jeje I was devastaded with Dobby`s and Fred`s deaths, i felt liike Joey reading "Little Women" jaja i wanted to run and hide the book in the fridge! (ummm sorry im a friends fan) Fred was my favourite twin!!! Anyway, i think not everybody can be pleased, but JK gave us a great book!!! Besos to all of you!
