The only topic of conversation this weekend

So, I finished the book. I liked a *lot* of it. I rolled my eyes at some of it. But...


Anyone want to talk about it, pitch up in the comments. I've got an appointment with some hardcore this afternoon (oh, get your minds out of the gutter, it's rubble, I'm building a couple of walkways for my nascent vegetable garden) but aside from that my only duty today is dubbing DVDs for a couple of people.

What got me, more than the deaths, is the support. I got teary when everyone showed up to help Harry--even his dead parents. When all the others arrived to fight, when McGonnagal let out that scream when she thought Harry was dead...well, it just tore me up.

But Tonks and Lupin hurt. It really did. I actually did a sort of "huh-huh-huh" backwards inhale because it snuck around the corner on us, focused on Fred.

I was happy the epilogue was what it was, but it seemed pure fandom to me. There was a happily ever after and I'm glad she showed us it. It doesn't stop me from wanting to know each moment of those nineteen years we skip.

And Christmas at Godfric Hollow. That was a crazy sentimental chance but JKR made it work.

Good on her, I think. Good on her for all of us.
