Look. I sobbed way more during the chapter where Fred died than when Harry 'died'.
Then, as I lay in bed last night trying to go to sleep, I got angry.
Charlie showed up at the castle to fight, why couldn't it have been Charlie who died? I wasn't emotionally invested in Charlie. I hardly knew him!
And if over the years Ginny didn't spread in the hips like Mrs. Weasley when we next see her in the epilogue, I'll be most upset.
Speaking of which, the epilogue felt like a badly written fanfic to me for some reason. While I'm glad they all lived 'happily ever after', and I'm quite sad for all the other fans whose ships sank like the Titanic, I thought it was unnecessary.
I mean, COME ON. ALBUS SEVERUS.
PS...How are they going to condense this book into a two and a half hour movie when the times comes?
