I never actually gave Cho another thought after HP and the Order of the Phoenix. Sorry Cho! But, when I think about it... What her life looks like when she's a grown-up might very well be this. (This loosely translates into 'Good job!')

I love Michael!!! And I think he's good for Cho. Not a constant reminder of Harry Potter and Cedric, someone to distract her from war memories, someone funny and lighthearted and maybe even childlike in the way he waves her wand around quoting Gandalf.

Bit melancholic. Yeah, it's totally possible if not probable that Cho ended up like this.

Author's Response: I never thought much of Cho either, tbh. I never hated her as viscerally as a lot of people did back in the day (and still do, I guess), but she was annoying and a crybaby; I understood her, all right, but that never meant that I liked her. I'm still not her biggest fan, but I thought writing her with this overcoming adversity theme would be interesting. She seems capable of a lot more depth than people gave her credit for, and I don't know if she'd come out like this, precisely, but I'm glad you liked it! Michael seems like a goofball to me, a breath of fresh air, but one I think, more than anything, Cho herself thinks of as childlike. He's not scarred the way she is, but Cho kind of... forces immaturity onto him? I guess? Idk, that's what I was thinking of as the fic evolved (I didn't plan it AT ALL), so I'm less skeptical of her love. Yes, it's a wildly melancholic piece (... of course I speedwrite something wildly melancholic), but I'm glad it worked out in the end!

(PS. I'm awful at answering reviews, especially for older fics, but I wanted to thank you for this one and the others you've left on a bunch of my fics -- I only just noticed and I'm ever so grateful that you stopped by and liked my stuff so much.)
