I had a couple of questions concerning the state of life directly after the battle of Hogwarts. Do you think it's possible some of the DEs could have escaped in the chaos? I think some of the more 'major' ones would be definitely rounded up, but Voldemort brought a lot of supporters to the castle. In addition, I belive it's mentioned in one of Rowling's interviews that Harry, Ron, and Neville go out to hunt down more DEs later.

Anyway, do you think that there would have needed to be a battle at the Ministry? Do you think this could have happened in conjuction with the battle of Hogwarts or after the Battle at Hogwarts?

Also, general thoughts and feedback on what happens in the several days and weeks after the battle.
