J.K. Rowling goes Beyond the Epilogue

J.K. Rowling has announced in a new interview with that the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was vague on purpose. She admitted her original epilogue was "a lot more detailed," but now that Book 7 is in our hands, J.K. no longer has to hold back any information about Harry Potter, and has now given us a lot of new details about the story and the characters.

I'm sure Snape has a portrait. I really wish JK Rowling would make a book about after the nineteen years later and before Harry's parents d. Also, I thought it would be cool if she made a series about Albus Potter and how he grew up! That would be really cool!

I think that the epilogue really sort of finished things off for me. I absolutely love this series; it was the first novel I ever read and remains my favorite. However, I thought the the epilogue was really very predictable. I mean, Ron and Hermione was definitely a good pairing, and that worked well. I didn't even mind Harry and Ginny together. But James, Albus and Lily? I would have liked to have some different names that weren't so.... easy to guess. Anyway, I'm just glad there was an epilogue. If I had to pick one more fact to know, I would like to know who the new Minister of Magic is. If there's an encyclopedia, I'm coming to Borders at Midnight to get myself a copy.

Well I personally think that JK should either do harry's after life with him catching dark wizards (his job is an auror) or make Harry's kids life. I mean tons of fans want to see some more Harry Potter, Read some more Quidditch, and just have some more Harry Potter/kids (Albus,James,Lilly). And JK if you see this try to do so. Alot more work but at the same time alot more FUN!

If you take each book one by one they are harshly criticized, but over all Rowling's word is great!

However I am dissapointed about the lack of information about eaters. I would've really wanted to know more about them and why not an extended Familly tree of the the main Pureblood families.

Anyway I'd like to say a big THANKS to Rowling for writing these books.

I think that george naming his child fred thing was realy cute. i was realy upset wen fred d. I'm realy hapy for Luna and im not at all surprised that Neville ended up being an herbology teacher afterall he was always good at herbology. The only thing I'd love to know would be about albus's school life, he seemed like the special kid in all three harry's kids.

I am curious as to where the names Rose and Hugo came from.... An encyclopedia would be amazing! I too would like to know what happened to Kreacher. I want to know the small details. I know she doesnt mind it being vague but I dont like it. I want to know everything. Its JKs fault really, writing such amazing books, getitng me all invested.

What about Hagrid?

What about Hermione's parents? Was she able to un-Obliviate them and be reunited with them? Or perhaps they went on to live happy successful lives in Australia aind Hermione was content to leave it at that...

What I really want to know is if Hermione ever replaced Bellatrix's wand. I certainly wouldn't have wanted to keep it, and I can definately see that Bellatrix would have fought using Hermione's wand during the battle of Hogwarts, which means that they would've been fighting with each others wands. I really hope that Hermione got her wand back. Also, did Harry give Malfoy back the hawthorn wand?

Also, did Flitwick Dolohov, did Greyback get ed (both deserve it for what they did to poor old Remus) and what happened to Rabastan Lestrange, Avery, Goyle, Mulciber and Crabbe in the final battle? So many questions!
