Post Hogwarts : Unpublished

I'm currently juggling my time with exams, training, work, paper processing and being a super hero all in one hand the other hand's doing something else. And yet I still manage to read that 7th Rowling book.

It's really a concoction of awes and disappointments, amazement and w-w-w-wait! I read the last three chapters twice already and still loving it. I know for a fact that this is the culmination of the 7 books and 8 years of following the magic and so I'm allowing every single letter of those pages consume me for a moment. OK, now I sound like an over acting high school girl

After the last page, I know a lot of readers' asses are itching to know what happened to the major characters, the epilogue is too short to discuss the details of the years that were bypassed and a lot of things might have happened to them, where did they go? what have they become?

so here's a treat:

WARNING: spoilers galore ahead, if you're still reading the book, then you should stop right here, or
you'll find out the ending ... that harry died!

JK Rowling told fans what she thinks happened to many of the book's characters after the final installment. In a 90-minute live Web chat, she fielded some of the approximately 120,000 questions submitted by devotees. It was her first public comment since "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"

So here's some interesting unpublished details of the ending:

Harry Potter, who always voiced a desire to become an Auror, or someone who fights dark wizards, was named head of the Auror Department under the new wizarding government headed by his friend and ally, Kingsley Shacklebolt. Harry gives occasional lectures to DADA classes at Hogwarts

His wife, Ginny Weasley, stuck with her athletic career, playing for the Holyhead Harpies, the all-female Quidditch team. Eventually, Ginny left the team to raise their three children -- James, Albus Severus and Lily -- while writing as the senior Quidditch correspondent for the wizarding newspaper, the Daily Prophet.

Harry's best friend Ron Weasley joined his brother, George, as a partner at their successful joke shop, Weasley's Wizard Wheezes. He also work with Harry as an Auror.

Hermione Granger, Ron's wife, works for the Ministry and is "pretty high up" in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement and has ensured the eradication of oppressive, pro pure-blood laws, although she began her post-Hogwarts career by working in the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, where she is instrumental in greatly improving life for house-elves and their ilk. She has helped in revamping the Ministry. The couple had two children -- Rose and Hugo.

Luna Lovegood, Harry's airily distracted friend with a love for imaginary animals becomes a famous wizarding naturalist Luna discovered many new species of animals and became quite famous for it, though she concluded that crumple-horned snorkacks don't actually exist. She ended up marrying Rolf the grandson of Newt Scamander, author of "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them."

Neville Longbotton has joined the faculty of Pomona Sprout and now also a professor teaching Herbology in Hogwarts. With Professor Minerva McGonagall now as the head mistress.

Mr. and Mrs. Weasley has received a total of at least eight grandchildren from the marriages of Bill and Fleur (their eldest is called Victoire, necessitating that they have at least one other child), of Harry and Ginny (Three) and of Hermione and Ron (Two). George has a son named Fred, named in honour of his late twin. Percy later becomes a high-ranking officer under Kingsley Shacklebolt's administration. Charlie became a specialist in Dragons Taxonomy Studies in Romania.

Hagrid is still living on the cottage near the forbidden forest, he's been a teacher for Care of Magical Creatures and an adviser for the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures in the Ministry.

Draco Malfoy, rumored to have Married a Half-blood and had a son named Scorpius, He's relationship with Harry is not really like "the one you sit for a bottle of fire whiskey" but they're in relatively good terms, and its an open secret.

Krum eventually finds love in his native Bulgaria.

Harry and Dudley had meet again. Dudley is muscular rather than obese he has kept his interest in boxing.

Cho Chang became the counselor and adviser of the D.A. in and out of Hogwarts.

Parvati Patil married Dean Thomas

Seamus Finiggan runs the Kenmare Kestrels, a Quidditch sporting business in Ireland

Ernie McMillan is currently traveling across the globe doing research on tropical ingredients for potions.

Katie Bell is coaching for Scottish Quidditch team

Lavander Brown together with Padma Patil runs a shop in Diagon Alley specializing in Divination, Prophecy and Runes

Oliver Wood, Following his graduation from Hogwarts he signed on as Keeper for the Puddlemere United Quidditch team.

Lee Jordan became a Newscaster after his participation as an anti-Ministry of Magic pirate radio station entitled Potterwatch during the rebellion, He eventually married Angelina Johnson, Hogwarts new Quidditch Coach.

Rowling said she may eventually reveal more details in a Harry Potter encyclopedia, but even then, it will never be enough to satisfy the most ardent of her fans. She's dealing with a level of obsession in some of her fans that will not rest until they know the actual length of Harry's ... new wand!
