Molly never did learn. Bumbles is still a fool, just a nicer fool. At least he isn't headmaster any more. That heart attack had me hoping, but Poppy "saves" the day.
Nice story. Can't believe Harry would marry anyone who has so many of Molly's characteristics or who wouldn't let hands rove.
The problem with epilogues is that the "hero" either fades away with a boring life, or continues to have exciting adventures that are only hinted at.

If the dementor had simply sucked the soul out of the horcrux, we would have had the soul fragment stuck in a "nondestructable" container.
I still think that pushing all the horcruxes through the veil is the way to go. Moldie may be "immortal" but he should be able to be knocked out, bound, stunned, tranked, or otherwise put out of commission and his body shoved through the veil. The whole veil is just a Deus Ex Machina and so under used.
The idea of the MOB having a hallows on his finger is truly disgusting.
The idea of Snape coming back is truly disgusting. The idea that his punishment for the hell he has done to untold children was an all expense paid vacation really shows how out of touch Bumbles is.
The idea of Herms and Ron is still rather disgusting.
The idea of Ginny not wanting Harry to see her in her Molly-approved bra but a bikini is OK is truly disgusting.
Does anyone have any priorities that correspond to reality?
Also, for all the training, Harry and Gin-gin still seem rather underwhelming.

Gin-gin should really like him more than "a lot."
If I had Molly as a mother, heaven forbid, I would run from that household as fast as I could. I always thought that maybe it is the over-bearing bossiness of Hermione that attracts Ron (though what she sees in him is beyond me-unless it is her very own child without having to go through pregnancy).

Do you realize how much better Harry's life would be without Molly or Bumbles? Molly for all the obvious overbearing, over-protective, inane, stupid, thoughtless, comments and actions and ditto for Bumbles, except one has to include his Machiavellian manipulations and basically being a bastard. Even Snape would be quickly taken care of if not for Bumble's protection and his belief that keeping one DE close at hand is worth the abuse of several hundred children. Moldie would be little more than a dark cloud if not for Bumbles and his MIS-treatment of Harry of every opportunity.
I would think that 5 minutes with Bumbles or Molly would be enough for plans for their murder to be drawn up and quickly carried out. Every scene in almost every story (including canon) with Bumbles just raises the hackles on my back and I want to stuff several thick wooly socks down his throat. The man is the perfect definition of a creep and MOB. Death, unless it involves him living through what he has done to so many for his greater good, is simply too clean and simple for him. Hell is designed for people like him.

Another illogical idea from Bumbles, the master of goofy.

Hey, nice story :)
It's cheesy in some places (okay a lot of places, but hey, what romance fics aren't?)
Harry's and Ginny's reactions towards the end to people weren't exactly what I expected - they seemed a little mean and obnoxious towards that Martin kid. I would just accept his gossiping - everyone does it, and I thought they were a little extreme in reaction. It was rather unrealistic, but so was Harry and Ginny getting married so young (extremely cute though )
But, all in all, this was a great story. There was a purpose to it, and I really enjoyed it.
My favorite was the beginning, but that's probably because I'm an angstwhore.
You're a great writer, thanks for writing ;D I appreciate it!

I think that this is a good story, I really thought the excuse for Snape action was lame. I been reading fanfiction for sometime and it funny how people give Snape excuses for his action, for I think that Snape hates Harry for being James son

I like this story. I find it odd that Ginny put a limit on her relationship with saying she can't see them more then friends. I admit I thought that their romance relationship would even when I read the last chapter, in my mind it never good when someone put a limit on a friendship saying that as far it would go.

This turn out to be a very good story, I would admit that I read the first two chapter and did not care for it. I thought that if Ginny going to pretend be Harry girlfriend would do more harm then good, it prove to me that there wrong for each other. But I decide since I like your other story's I give a second chance. In some ways this remind me of another story, Harry tell Hermione that he loves her and she rejected him. Harry try to kill himself and jump of a roof and land in an comma and that night Hermione realize that she do love Harry, in short when Harry final awake they fix their problems.
