THERE ARE A FEW THINGS THAT WERE LEFT UNSAID LIKE WHAT HAPPENED AFTER EVERYTHING WAS SAID AND DONE. EXACTLY WHO DID MALFOY MARRY AND WHO VICTORIA WAS WHICH I THINK IT WAS RON AND HERMOINES DAUGHTER OR HARRY AND GINNY.
I think that Victoire was Bill & Fleur's daugther. She was related, but you know, by marrying Teddy, that would make him related to them too.

I personally don't think there was anything special about the names Hugo and Rose except for the fact one begins with "r" for Ron and "h" for Hermoine I didn't take anything else from it besides that.
or Ron and Harry

Ah, well. I suppose that my love for Harry Potter and my imagination will have to fill in the blanks. I've heard that JK Rowling isn't going to write any more books, so it's doubtful that I will find out the true answers to my questions.
Long live the Harry Potter series!!

Besides, this way, if she chooses, she can write a sort of book of biographies for charity like she did the Quidditch and Magical Creaturs books. Or maybe put them on her site.

I don't know about you, but when Harry was marching to his death, I loved the imagery that explained his surreal feelings. I was feeling the same way as I read this not just because it was written well, but because it was the last book. I had joked about how it would be a sad day when I finished reading the books because it would mean that they were over. I just never realized how bummed I would actually be. There is an interview with Rowling that was done just before the release (you can find at USA Today), and she said it best. She said that ""Harry's story comes to a definite end in book seven,"....Writing the final words of the saga felt "like a bereavement"....But after finishing the last book, "I felt terrible for a week." "Finishing is emotional because the books have so wrapped up with my life. It's almost impossible not to finish and look back to where I was when I started."
My life has also gone through a ton of changes in that time, and Harry Potter was a wonderful small part of that. I didn't just read the books for myself, but nearly every night for seven years I have also read them to my kids. The latter is an experience that I would never have given up. It was a wonderful time to share with my kids. But like the book, life goes on and my kids are doing the things that I once did. My oldest doesn't want me to read the last book...he wants to read it himself and is very welcome to do so (my oldest also picks on the middle kid). My middle kid, just went to school full time this past year. My youngest gives me the "I want to go to school too" bit when we walk his siblings to school.
So, although I have enjoyed it to this point, it is time to part and life will go on. I'll just always hold JK Rowling as one of my favorite authors, the Harry Potter books as my favorite books, and the times that I have spent with Harry Potter and my kids to be some of my most cherished memories/moments (more because of my kids)in my life.

Who is Victoire?
She must be Bill and Fleur's daughter. It's a French name. They would also be the closest in age since Bill and Fleur were the only married Weasley's at the time when Lupin's son was born.

With the name Albus Serverus did anyone else get the felling that the eldest was named James Sirius? Wonder what Lily's middle name is?
Maybe Molly after Ginny's mother.

I was thiking Victoire was Viktor Krum's child
also i'm a little confused
JK Rowling said that by the end of the book we would know what harry's parents did for a living and what dudley saw when the dementors came at him
why weren't those things in the book??
alot of thingds wernt in th book that jk said would b. like she had said that the fact that harry had lilys eyes would be very important but i dint c it in th book at all! or mab i missed something...
At the end when S Snape was dying he asked Harry to look into his eyes. He wanted to be looking into Lily's eyes, who he loved, when he was dying.
