This is why I tend to pay absolutely no attention to fanfic, or fans in general (sorry if that offends anyone. it isn't intended to). I think complaining to a writer that her work didn't satisfy a particular sense of "what should have happened" is just rubbish.

Not to mention that what most people seem to be complaining about - the death of a particular character - had both a point and fairly open ended hints that, seen in a particular light, might cheer a sad reader considerably.

I like the Potter books and have read each one multiple times. Well, except for the last one, which I read on Monday to cheer myself up. I refuse to let rabid "fans" ruin that for me, but I'm glad you shared anyway. Every once in a while, when I need a reminder as to why I am, at very best, a fringe fan, something like this pops up. :)
