Review for The Real Epilogue

The Real Epilogue

(#) FenrisWolf 2007-08-23

Great story so far, but I really hope that you aren't just explaining away the scene described in the Epilogue of Doom and are planning on deviating from those appalling results, if only to rescue Harry's younger son from the truly apalling name 'Albus Severus'. I mean, really, they might as well pin a sign on the poor kid's back that says "Beat me up and steal my lunch money!"

Author's response

As I said in another review:
In this version, Harry won't name his son Albus Severus. Or rather, isn't the one who does so.

To answer some other reviews, I really think we see 4 different Harrys in canon. Harry books 1-4, CAPSLOCK Harry #5, wussy Harry of #6, and passive sacrificial Harry of DH. Since many fans howl in protest atthose who DARE suggest that is bad writing on Rowlings part, I think those last three Harrys were under Dumbles' influence. This is Harry freed of such things.

Others' interpretations may differ. This is my explanation of why Harry's world in the epilogue nearly put me into a diabetic shock. Those who liked the epilogue will certainly not like this and disagree about the characterizations.
