IBNeko's Journal-Nyo~!
Harry Potter: The Deathly Hollows
Awww~ I liked the ending. It got a bit confusing and messy, but it was a pleasant way to end such a long series.

I just hope she doesn't try to write more. That would be bad. Maybe. Leave it up to the fanfiction authors and all that.

I think that took me 5? 6 hours? ::yawns:: very good. Haven't devoured a book in a while.

You're the first person I heard said they liked the ending.

Do you mean the actual ending, or the epilogue? I could stomach the ending, but the epilogue??

Epilogue, actually. Well, ending as well. It could have been worse. And I'm fond of the H/G pairing, probably as a result of having read This Mean War...

Can't say I like the way she had them name their children what they named them. XP It felt odd.

The ending was okayish. Me no like. Come on! Too fairy tale. -_-

Psh, it was supposed to be fairy tale-ish. What would you have done? Made it more realistic and have Harry die off? Or have Ginny and Hermione sacrifice their lifes to save Harry, leaving him alive but alone with Ron? (hehehe, Harry/Ron pairing? o.O)

Yay, someone else who liked the ending. It was a GOOD ENDING, everyone. All the questions got answered, and a believable new status quo was created.

Hurrah~ someone else liked the ending~!

One of the surviving characters was supposed to have died in the original draft. It looks to me like it was Hagrid - he was getting pretty well setup for a tragic death. Maybe Mrs. Weasly.

I'm actually with you. At this juncture, it would have been a wee bit too predictable to have Harry actually die. This worked out rather well. Considering the body count, I don't think it's fair to call the ending too fairy-tail-ish.

That being said, I could have done without the epilogue. I mean, ok, naming his second son Albus Severus was rather interesting, but other than that, it just felt a little out of place.
(Incidentally, if they named the older one James Sirius - as I would suspect they did - they get whatever is coming to them as parents. That like an explicit instruction to wreak havoc upon the unsuspecting masses.)

My problem with the epilogue was that it didn't seem to wrap up all the questions I had, especially about George. I desperately wanted to know what happened to him, since I can't imagine WWW surviving and thriving after Fred. I just don't think George would have had the motivation or the invention.

My theory is that Albus Severus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy are finally going to end the Gryffindor-Slytherin rivalry for good after they band together to save themselves from all the teasing they're going to get about their really ridiculous names. I may have to write that particular fanfiction at some point if my real writing ever gets a little more under control.

And my biggest complaint was probably that Draco Malfoy was balding, for some reason. I just kind of went "NOOOOO! How dare she make him balding?" which was really, really not the point.
