It's probably just me, but when I read a story the first thing I think of after the plot is "is this possible?"

This epilogue is great, except for one tiny thing at the very end: the hair color of the five Potter kids. The only way they can have red hair is if both parents possess the recessive gene for red hair. Harry does, I know, but Hermione has brown hair. I know brown is dominant, so it takes only one gene to get it, but no one (and I mean Rowling) ever said she was a carrier of the gene for red hair. Also, even if she is, only half of the kids would get it. The other half would get either black hair or brown.

The Weasleys are the only family with a bunch of redhaired kids, and I don't think you intend to insult the Potters.

I'm sorry if this offends you in some way. I'm just picky about things like that.

Author's Response: Hi again, sorry about this but I have to disagree with you on this one, first because it is fiction, and then because I have a Brother in law with red hair, I have a son with red hair, and my sisters son has red hair, now with all these red heads it gets confusing but even though my sister's hubby has no idea if there was a red head in his family they have three boys all with red hair, now my sis, like me has black hair, her hubby has brown, and now we have three red heads who almost look like triplets with almost identical features of their father .
So like I say complicated but just because the gene isn't mentioned don't mean it's not there.
