When Deathly Hallows, Part 2 hit DVD, IO9 posted a quick contest to write an alternate epilogue. I typed up the following and figured I'd repost it here after they announced the winners that Monday (mainly just so I add whether I'd won or lost). More than a month later, still no announcement - I think they've forgotten - so here it is anyway. Title: Epilogging Fandom: Harry Potter Originally Posted: 10 November, 2011 Harry waved his wand, and the debris covering the bench was blasted away. He hadn't come back here, back to Hogwarts, since the day Hermione had died here so many years ago, killed by a man she had once loved. Now the school lay in ruins, abandoned even by its ghosts. He sat on the bench and wept silently. After all the devastation caused by Voldemort and his Death Eaters, the wizarding world had seemed finally at peace. Who could have known how short it would be, how much more pain and suffering would soon follow when the gingers revolted?
