No, I'm not finished yet, but I've always had the habit of turning to the final pages of a book and scanning them... for me the adventure is how did we get there...
So... can we say living in the land of firmly AU? That's okay, I'm a Snarry fan and knew it was impossible anyway.
Suddenly I am awash in possibilities for how Snape still isn't evil (although I expect he is and shall remain so for JKR, shortsighted wench that she is.)
Still, he made a magical contract, didn't he? He had to do it -- and is still pushing Harry to protect himself. Interesting, innit?
Yes, I shall continue with Ars Magica. I hate joining the Sirius fanatics in denial-ville, but hey, what can you do?
