YOU DON’T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU ASK FOR

Just read the epilogue now! Life's been busy. Although I sadly have too much time on my hands right now. :-(

A nice wrap-up of the story, with some anti head-in-the-clouds realism added to the mix - like the independents and business factions failing to form a political coalition. Nice one.

And your not making Hermione automatically super-duper smart, but allowing for Dumbledore and Riddle to be - gasp - smarter than her! Oh well, you still let her be the 'smartest girl of her age', I think. And her lacking corresponding magical power and so falling a little in the rankings was another dose of 'realism'.

It's ... sad ... to think of a Luna who 'drifted away' from her friends. You do suggest that she was still very close to Harry and Hermione, of course - 'always knowing' where they were, and having two children by Harry - but it does seem like she ended up somewhat alone. :-(

Ginny's fate - heh. :-)

You've done quite a few 'Harry goes back in time and trounces the opposition' stories over the past couple of years; they've comprised pretty much all of your last sheaf of stories. Have you ever thought of flipping things around, having Hermione come back? With her goal being to coach/train Harry to grow into his power? To grapple with the realities of the bad guys and having to kill/fight? Mind you, a future!Hermione supporting and helping her best friend wouldn't be too much different from canon!Hermione, at that, I guess.

It was good to see another story from you, thank you for the entertainment; for this one and, as always, for all of those others you've written over the years. Best wishes to you.
