Is the end satisfactory?

In 'The prisoner of Azkaban', Hermoini had a watch that can be used to get into past and future. Using that, Harry and Hermoini saved 2 lives. Using the same watch, why can't they save Black, Harry's parents, Harry's friends and other innocent lives? I feel so sad on the death of these people. Don't u?

Well, first of all, it was against the law. Second, it would have changed the whole story. Harry might not have met his two best friends, he might never have been the boy we met in the books. Voldemort would not have tried to kill him that night, or he could have gone to the place the Potter's were staying and they would have been gone. Then the spell never would have backfired, and Voldemort would have lived. The whole wizarding world and the mortal world (in the books of course) would have changed dreastically. Finally, it wasn't in the plan J. K. Rowling made for how the books would go. Lol

I think it was because if they did that they would have an unstable future. It was also against the law.

well,,maybe yes,,they could actually save those lives using their watch..but what if the magic of the watch is only effective in some situations?..anyway, that is the beauty of the is able to make its readers/viewers sympathize with the characters..some great stories didn't end up happily ever after..
