I just want to say a big thank you to everyone for the encouragement the other day when I was dealing with THE END.
*spoiler alert ahead....don't read if you've not read HP #7*
Remember the part in the seventh HP book where Harry is all alone, with the resurrection stone in his hand, walking to his most certain doom and there, in the dark of the forest, appear his parents, Sirius and Lupin? They walk with him, keeping him company, both there and not there at the same time. It is a path that Harry must go alone, but the invisible support makes the journey possible.
Thanks for being my Sirius, my Lupin, my James and Lily Potter.
I made it!
(Now to stuff the manuscript somewhere far away for a few weeks.)
