You bring up a good point that I totally forgot because it's been so long since I read the beginning. This story early on and even somewhat in the middle of the story seemed to imply Harry would defeat the Endless. I musta missed something as well because I didn't even see a philosophical victory for Harry(example: Harry goes on to live normally with the memories of the Endless and the power he got from them without them influencing him therefor he beat them because they said it was impossible for him to do that). So what happen did you decide that Harry defeating the most powerful beings in the universe one way or another was the wrong way to go? If so you should probably go back through your long arse chapters and delete all those hints you gave about him overcoming them.
