Now that it is over a couple of years since the last Harry Potter story, is anyone missing him? I must admit that I do kind of yearn for another Harry Potter book. Oh, well, one supposes that it had to end sometime. I wonder who is winning the house Quiddicth competition at the moment!

I'm taking a Harry Potter Literature class in university right now. Just finishing the second book, can't wait to re-read the good two [] Not looking forward to going through the sixth one again, though []

No, I'm not wishing there were more books. Rowling ran out of steam in the middle of the fifth one, if you ask me.

I agree with Ney, I love the books sooooo much but I'm glad they ended when they did. They ended well, we got closure and now I imagine that Harry is somewhere out there living a good life with Ginny, and now his kids are getting into trouble in Hogwarts and carrying on the Weasley legacy. []

Gods I would loooove to take a Harry Potter class, but ... no time now. []

Nuh uh, the epilogue was just a nightmare brought on by bad cabbage. Harry is married to Hermione somewhere []

The epilogue feels a bit lame. Especially considering she only did it to keep fanfic at bay.

Ney, you're insane. Harry and Herm? Eww!!! [] I know you've always liked that pairing, but... ewww! []

Nah Harry and Ginny were always meant to be, and Herm and Ronnykins.

You guys are weirdos, I liked the epilogue just fine. []

Well, I rooted all the way for Harry and Cho, for that matter.
[or how about Harry and... nevermind]

I found that after book three, there were more and more moments of suck. Of course the style improved, but something was lost along the road. And the epilogue had an awkward feel to it. Kinda forced.

Harry and Ginny? Eww!!! [] Hermione and Ron? Eww!!! [] I don't know which makes me sicker. ( [] )

Harry/Anyone but Ginny. Hermione/Anyone but Ron. They are TERRIBLE for each other.

Yeah...They become less formulaic and children-bookish, but also much less inspired and natural.

This however

does amuse me. And if I finally get fed up with football which is looking increasingly likely, I might go for this sport!

I believe she admitted recently that it should really have been Harry/Hermione. I'll see if I can find the article.

Here it is.
