Anonymous asked: I have to ask: In the chapters of Book 6, were there any changes? Like instead of Draco, what or how did Harry cast Sectumsempra if not on the former? Was it Nott (Because, well, flanked with Crabbe and Goyle, I kinda assumed that Nott was 'Draco' in this universe.)... H-How did Pansy die anyway?! O_O Oh, and were there any changes (if you decided to) during the Final Battle? TQ!

There were going to be a number of changes (though some of it was still in the air).  The increased knowledge Harry would have gained - including but not limited to the fact that he must die - would have been a big turning point.  And the idea was to have Harry switch from the more passive role he’d been playing to an active one.  And Harry probably wouldn’t have cast that spell until a real battle situation, since he’d just ASK Sev and find out what it does.  And Nott does play Draco’s role to an extent, but he’s just better at it.  He’s more suited to the task.  As evidenced by the fact that he was much better at getting away with it (as a note, he would have used the secret passage in the RoR, instead of the vanishing cabinet.).  Pansy would have been taken out by a spell from behind, and killed basically instantly while she was speaking to Harry, Draco and Blaise.  Because we’re sadists.  And most of the details on the Final Battle were unclear, since they were more than a book away!  Most of the details we had set up were for the ending, so that we could work up to it.

Anonymous asked: Did Lucius and Narcissa fight with the Order during the Final Battle?

Of course they do!  And in that moment Lucius learns that he’s the only other Death Eater besides Snape that knows how to cast a patronus.  (It’s a peacock)

Anonymous asked: Could you briefly summarize your epilogue (if you were going to have one)?

Draco and Harry opened an apothecary in Diagon Alley and adopted two war orphans, one female - Lilian Lyra and one male - Aquila Severus.  Blaise never got over Pansy’s death during the Battle and instead became a sort of wandering loner.  Neville and Luna got married, and Severus eventually became Headmaster.

sugarcane-lane asked: Would Harry have continued to get better, are would somethig else come up?

He would have continued to get better and eventually become very close friends with Severus and best Dumbledore in the duel.

Edit: Best isn’t exactly accurate.  He would have lost, because he’s a 16 year old against the greatest wizard of their age, but he would have done well enough that Dumbledore would have allowed him the knowledge he wanted.

Anonymous asked: would Fred still have died in DH?

Mina: This is one we often talked about.  Waffling between sticking to the vision and also keeping the Weasley twins, who we are such a fan of together.  I don’t know if we ever really came to a decision, to be honest, a large part of me wants to say he would have survived the war, but another part of me says we probably would have died.  For me, personally, I will always do my best to save Fred.
