Review:Pheonix Potioneer says:
I FINALLY noticed this, since I usually don't check your author page, just my favorite stories.

I actually really like this ending. In J.K. Rowling's ending, it made it seem like Harry had always been content after the battle, and that probably isn't true. I like that in this epilogue still feels guilt. That is more realistic.

I'm surprised that in this epilogue, Colin is the only student who dies. We know that over 50 people died defending Hogwarts, and we only know the names of five. Half the Gryffindor table stayed, and quite a few Hufflepuff's and Ravenclaw's stayed as well. I would assume that more would have died, especially since they are less experienced than wizards like Lupin.

I grinned when Luna was talking about war spirits. It is nice to see that not everything has changed.

I like the reflection as Harry is going away. J.K. Rowling's never had that, although I like it better with the reflection this way.

Good job with this! It is a great ending to the series.

Author's Response: I do the same thing. I've Albus Potter and Slytherin's Office saved to my favourites, so I only occasionally think to check on your author name to see if you've anything else up.

Yeah, the real epilogue took place 19 years later when people had presumably come to terms with events to some extent, whereas this is taking place when those events are still fairly raw.

Well, Colin is the only student from Ginny's year who dies in this. There may be others from Harry's year or even younger students who snuck in (by the way, fun fact, I read during the 1916 Rising in Dublin, some of the younger St. Enda's students (like around 12-15 year olds) apparently snuck into the city centre to try and help with the rebellion their headmaster organised. And you probably have no idea what I'm on about, but the Battle of Hogwarts reminded me of that).

You may have a point though about how many could have been killed.

And yeah, I like Luna as she is. So I wasn't having her change.

Thanks for the review. Glad you liked this.
