Done, in one marathon session with minor breaks to run errands, dress a child, etc.

Who becomes Headmaster of Hogwarts?
What jobs everyone has 19 years later?
Who in the hell would marry Malfoy?
How do they sort kids if the sorting hat burned?
How did Neville get the Sword of Gryffindor if the Goblin had it?
Jobs - me too. Ron works somewhere to do with Muggles, so he can continue to play witn their toys (he was so proud to have parked the car at the train station!)
I wish Harry would have spoken to Draco at the station. 19 years is a long time to hold a grudge, particularly with the theoretical perspective of adulthood. I cant see em becoming friends, but cold nods seem ridiculous. Draco's mom did save Harry's life (granted for selfish reasons), thus enabling Harry to save the wizarding world as we know it.
The Hat got the sword for Neville, natch. Same way it did for Harry, once.
Neville was clearly going to play a major role from his second appearance in the series. She took too much care developing his character for it not to be. Interesting that he played such a major role with so little space actually spent on him thru out the series.
D's brother. Oh my.
I gotta get me some of that healing potion Hermione kept in her expanding evening bag. (Dittany, yes?)
Tonks and Lupin dying, with infant son left to Gma. Sad. Betcha a euro that infant son will be center of any new series. Any takers?
Also, he'll probably start by getting the wand/cape/stone together. Maybe he'll find the stone first, wandering about the grounds at Hogwarts.
Line the books up on the shelves. Each one is wider than the next. This last one weighs a ton. I agree, the wanderings in the woods could have been trimmed. However, if they were, I would have lost my main primer for remembering what its like to be a teenager. I've already told OT we have to reread in 10 years, to prime us for the angst, selfcentered POV of the not-quite adult. That readiness to believe ill of anyone who didnt give us everything we asked for, etc.
Altoid - curiously strong.
