Follow Friday - Plot change


Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
Question Change the Plot. If you could, what book would you change the ending or a plot thread? Go ahead and do it...change it.
Honestly I have trouble thinking of changing the ending of books.  To me they stand on their own.  There's always fanfiction, but to me that is it's own things.  Sure, if I'd written Harry Potter (it would've failed epically first of) I'd ended up with a Harry/Luna paring and would have left of the epilogue because I just am not a fan of epilogues, but should that be different in the book? I'm not sure.

In things I would probably actually change, I'd give Susan a better ending to the Narnia series.  I feel like the briefest of lines has been explored and extrapolated on.  In fact, I've seen a much better Susan-ending floating around the internet.  I'm fine with her not coming back to Narnia/losing the faith in the allegorical sense because that is something that happens, but if that's what happens the reader deserves to know more because there's clearly a story there.

Hopping through. I can't really see harry/luna but on the other hand, it would be really fun.

I guess I fall into the minority with liking the epilogue in the last Harry Potter book. I liked knowing where the characters were down the line. Of course, I would've been satisfied as well if it took place 1 year later or something. I just wanted to know that our heroes were all okay and happy and I wanted to see a bit of that. :)

Here's my Follow Friday

Have a GREAT day!
