|Reviews for Tied for Last Original Ending|
| Aly chapter 1 . 2/23
I think this ending is better. Or well, I like it more. Not necessarily because it's a "happy ending", but because it's very clever. I find the Hermione-horcrux thing plausible.
Good job, amazing story

As perfect and fitting as the other ending is...the little girl romantic inside of me just wanted this ending so, so badly. This made me so happy.

I MUCH prefer this ending.

Thank YOU for posting this ending! It helped end the torrent of tears from the other ending. I'm just going to pretend that other ending didn't exist.
I love the peek into their life together after the death of V. I love that they're happy and remember to show each other how much they love and appreciate one another. It's beautiful.
I can't wait to read your other fics once they're completed (you've been favorited and followed) and I can't wait to read your published books. Don't forget to add me to your mailing list for when that book comes out!

Thank god you kept this version. The other ending just about killed me. I definitely like this ending better.

I loved tied for last, but I like this ending more. I'm going to just go with this one:)

This is a great ending, though I completely adore the one you currently have posted. It just seems to (sadly) fit with the story - though, reading this, I think I'd like to see more closure for Hermione in the full-length story. But, either way, both endings are lovely.
One quick, just-because-I-am-curious-question: Why did you change the original ending?
Thank you for sharing!

To be honest, I'm not sure which ending I prefer. I enjoyed reading this ending much more (happy ending :) but I'm not going to say that I prefer this ending over the other one (though I do prefer happy endings ;) or that I felt the other ending is more believable - both endings are beautifully brilliant, and this is without a doubt one of the most unique and memorable Tom Hermione fics I've ever read. Thanks for the amazing journey, and I'm extremely glad that Tom is still alive and he and Hermione are very happy together (at least, in this ending :)

Gotta say this is much happier and I do like happy endings... however the one you ended up going with was more believable and beautiful. So... thanks for including this alternate ending.

Well, in all honesty, I've read both endings. The most recent is, of course, absolutely heart breaking and totally fitting to Tomione. It is passionate and beautiful and painful and yet... after all we've been through with them, it is absolutely the only way to end something that glorious.
Now, your original ending... it's prefect for a sequel. Now you've left us aching for more, to see Tom fill the D.A. position and learn along-side his students, and for Hermione to search her memory for every thing Mungo and Jared taught her and share it with the world. It'd be quite a ride to see Tom be confronted with his past by some curious student and watching his various adventures.
I'll admit, writing a sequel would be an absolute affront to your inner artistic sensibilities. That I understand. But if ever you do decide, perhaps you can justify it by thinking "Well... The fans would love it for sure... And I could branch out with new characters and plot developments... It could be quite fun to do in my free time..." Etc. Just a thought.

Mon premier tomione et... je suis tombée sur un morceau de choix ! J'ai adoré la psychologie de vos personnages et l'ambiance de votre fiction.
En effet, ce n'est pas simpliste (les réactions de Tom et Hermione sont à la hauteur de leur intelligence) ni cliché et votre écriture est merveilleuse (oui, même en lisant en VF avec g...traduction).
Quant à la fin, sur un plan littéraire, je préfère celle associée à la fic. Et pourtant, je préfère les fins heureuses. D'ailleurs, je pense qu'il est beaucoup plus difficile d'écrire une fin heureuse qu'une fin malheureuse. Sans doute parce qu'il est plus facile de me faire pleurer que de me faire rire ;-).
Ecrire une fin heureuse qui ne soit pas mièvre ni artificielle est un défi extrêmement difficile à relever.
En ce qui concerne celle-ci (la vôtre), je pense qu'elle aurait gagné à être plus elliptique (un peu comme l'autre d'ailleurs), moins descriptive sur l'avenir du couple (après tout qu'importe ce qu'ils font après, l'essentiel n'est-il pas leur être ensemble ?). De plus, au grand dam des puristes peut-être, y a-t-il vraiment besoin d'expliquer le pourquoi du comment de la survie de Tom (le coup du horcruxe fait un peu resucée) ? Après tout, nous sommes dans un monde magique, non ? Un peu de mystère ou d'incertitude ne semblent pas malvenus dans ce contexte...
Je vous souhaite une excellente continuation dans votre œuvre littéraire.
Encore bravo et... merci.

Ok wow I really like this ending so much better. Well, actually I'm just glad there's a sensible happy ending at all. The other one I think was also very good but I'm so sick of all the tragic endings to the Tomione fics. This ending is great. Well, the whole story is great but this ending makes me feel much better than the other one. I can only read so many ways for Tom to die in fics before wanting to just stop reading Tomione. Lol. But anyways, great job on both this and the rest of the story (including the other ending). :)

So, when exactly is limbo-Hogwarts? I remember reading about the Whomping Willow. That means it is either during or after Marauder–era Hogwarts. However, it is not 1998 Hogwarts, as the limbo–castle was not utterly destroyed. So, when is it?
By the way, I enjoyed the story. I believe I prefer the posted ending to the original ending. The posted ending gave the story more of a melancholy feel. However, Tom was also portrayed as a martyr. I do tend to favor tragic martyrs.

I have to say, I much prefer this ending. Although the other one is very good as well, if a lot sadder.
