Bio:

Started reading fanfiction because of my daughter and my disappointment with DH (its epilogue) and it became a hobby. I like to explore the 'what ifs' in fandom. 

A hopeless romantic. Favourite pairings, Hermione/Draco, Ginny/Draco, Harry/Ginny, Hermione/Bill.

Wow! Clever, amusing and sad. Such dear characters and they all die and we get to see it throught the eyes of a third party. Loved and smiled when she meets Fleur and Colin. The part when she thinks Colin is actually getting younger made me laugh.

Thanks. Polly Protheroe, Muggleborn Goth Auror will reappear in some of my other stories. looking at various people through her eyes, I hope, gives a fresh perspective. there are a few laghs in this collection. Twentyfive chapters of combat would be unremitting.

At the end Cho fought for their way of life, didn't she? So many of them showed up or stood by Neville (in my modest opinion as much a heroe as Harry Potter) at Hogwarts as part of the resistance. Well done again!

Author's Response:

Thank you.

Cho was one of the first arrivals. So many people arrived at the battle and DH left me with a lot of questions. There will be 25 chapters, all are done (but some are being rewritten). I agree with you about Neville. He gets a chapter to himself “Snakeslayer”, I think it’s the longest.

And justice was done and this chapter did not disappoint. I do enjoy your style!

Author's Response:

Thank you. I hope to get one more chapter (Snakeslayer) posted tonight. Apart from the final chapter of my silly Christmas Story (Beard Hunters) that will be all from me until after Christmas.

I've been looking like this for a long time. The story of those we, the readers, dismissed so easily while reading the Harry Potter books. As I read this first chapter somehow i felt such a deep sadness! What a horrible wait for poor Poppy. I know I'll cry and mourn for those who died but at the same time you'll give me a chance to walk in the shoes of a group of very extraordinary characters.

Author's Response:

Thanks for the review.

This chapter was not the first to be written (that was “Protheroe’s Perspective”). I wrote them as they came to me and figured the order out later. I decided very early that there would be a “Poppy” chapter, but I expected it to be mid-battle chaos. Instead it’s simply as you say, “a horrible wait.”

Very few authors can write Luna and you've done it extremely well! You know, in the world of 'what ifs' I asked, what if Harry had ended up with Luna. In the books she understood him so well! Not only that, Luna sensed when he needed a friend. It was really touching reading it. Another great chapter.

Elena 



Author's Response:

Thank you. I'm very fond of Luna and there is no doubt in my mind that Harry would be more likely to be with Luna than Hermione. however, Harry and I share an irrational love of redheaded girls, so, relly, it could only ever be Ginny.
