The Verdict, in slightly more detail:
Warning, this one actually is much more spoileriffic.
I was right on several of my major predictions/hopes. I think it’s rather cool that with only a few minor tweaks and a retcon of the finale of the book, my story The Devil’s Due could still be a pretty good AU canon story.
The death toll was much greater than I expected, and given the events of the last chapter, I’m guessing that it was either Neville or Draco who got the last-minute reprieve. I’m happy that both of them lived. I’m pissed that Severus died like a punk, but I think I may re-read the memory chapter because I adore Sev/Lily (what would be the name mash for that? Sevilly? Silly?
I need a Sev/Lily icon. Their love is so doomed.
