At all. Muggle or Wizard. Including Flourish and Blotts'.

Any trauma you may experience while reading yet another rollercoaster of a story is totally my fault, and not Harry's, Ron's, Hermione's, Snape's, Dumbledore's, McGonagall's, Peeves',
the twins', the Marauders', Queen Rowling's,
or even
Seamus Finnigan's.

To Keith, Alex, Apple, Emily, Evans, Cass, Gordon, Jess, and Skylark,
as well as everyone else associated with
The Magic is Might Experience 2011.
Thank you all – it was extraordinary!

To Sara who is my tolerant and willing muse in all things Potter.

To Keo who believes I can do anything.

To Susen James, for aiding and abetting this travesty of justice.

And most of all – to Jo Rowling… for changing our lives.
