It’s not that happy and, definitely, not sappy. It’s just me, a delusional female grasping at straws. J And, I truly loved the ending. I know how difficult it might be to dare leave the readers without their beloved happily ever after. Yay for your courage!
I've wanted to have an ambigous ending forever. In my story, 'A Kiss Goodnight' my original ending had Hermione never remembering she was in love with Draco, but my beta at the time thought it was too similiar to another story written by someone else, so I relented. I had a slightly similiar ending to this with "A Ranger and A Granger" and of course, I guess the ending to my story, "A Fourth and Final Week in the Life" wasn't traditionally happy. Still, I had wild plans to do a sequel (different storylne, same characters) next Halloween.
This could be a new series... Hermione and the ghost! Like that old movie, 'The Ghost and Mrs. Muir"!!!
