i just had this horrifying thought.
what if J.K.R wrote DH's epilogue just to spite us, shippers and slashers?
cause it sure feels like it......
i heard that she read fanfic so there's a huge possibility she'd stumbled into one of the slash ones. she might not like it, but she kept silent for not wanting to enstrange (<--- is this the correct word?) the slash community. but since she's the original author, she decided to pay us back with that crappy epilogue.
i imagined she wrote that epilogue while thinking
"Take that you slasher!"
but it's just my imagination anyway.....
