I am really nervous! Like THE END! 13 DAYS...I don't think my brain completely comprehends just yet....It will all bounce back when I have the book in my hands....I am very nervous...we've waited so long and it's here.....it's gonna end...who knows what happens....who knows who dies...oh man, YES I am full of nerves!

I get butterflies when I think about the last book. It's just surreal! It doesn't feel like my whole Harry Potter experience is almost over.

I think I'm completely numb to everything at the moment and when I'm actually reading Deathly Hallows it will hit me.

I'm so scared...=O

I expect to feel a total emptiness when I've finished and once it's sunk in that it's the end. I've been a fan since POA so that is EIGHT YEARS I have been waiting to read DH. That's a bit frightening. I think I will spend about a month depressed.

I'm nervous, excited and upset at the same time. I'm nervous because I really want to enjoy it as much as possible. I'm mostly sad though; I'm actually coming to terms with THE END OF HARRY POTTER! :upset:
I really hope it's the best yet....though I'm nervous about how it's going to be a 'blood bath'....

I haven't started feeling like that yet, I'll probably begin to feel wierd a few days before, but it feels right that it should end after like 9 years of reading them lol. I really don't want a horrific number of people to die though! Keep some of the characters alive JK! lol

a few weeks/months ago i was dreading it coming, hoping to prolong it as much as possible so it doesn't end :(
but now? bring it on! lol!

What i'M REALLY worriedabout is that when i go up to get my copy at midnight, there'll be some nasty **** who'll rip open the book and yell out hte death to everyone!
if so, i'll be AGHHH!!!

I'm hoping more than anything that there won't be papaers on it everywhere the second it comes out either..i shall have to hibernate with earplugs

LOL yeah I'm worried about some randomer shouting out what happens too. I won't be getting it at midnight but I work in a shop and will be there the morning it comes out and if anyone dares mention anything that happens I will go mental.

I'll have to sort the newspapers out with my eyes shut just in case there is an article on DH. I can see it now... a headline in massive letters like "Harry doesn't survive final book" or something. Ooh I would be so mad:grumble:

ahh - you'd think they'd try and make it so all the papers etc are spoiler-free! do you think they will? oh at least leave it a few days! lol!

wow! you're from bristol! lol! ok..back on track! Poor you!! It was like that for me with HBP. I came back about 2 weeks afterit's release (so i have no idea what the hype before it was like) and then went into tesco the next day were it was really cheap and got it.
except i heard no spoilers! lol!
but it wasn't the last book i suppose.... hopefully they spoilers won't be too bad!

It seems so strange to be feeling the range of emotions Im feeling right now. My brain is saying its a book series moveon. But every other particle of me is sayin "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Dont let it end":upset::upset:
As for some idiot shouting out the good bits at the opening I hope their ready to feel my book across the back of their head:rotfl::p
Ok I promise i wont do that but what if i just happened to stick out my foot as they passed by:tu::lol:

Yeah, that's how I'm feeling. On one hand, it's probably going to be one of the best days of my life (I do not think I have ever had more amazing things to look forward to at once, honestly), and on the other... it all ends. I should skip mascara that morning, I'm thinking :rolleyes:

So yes, I am nervous, but it's the good kind. Butterflies, definitely. Excessively swoopy, hopped up butterflies. Butterflies with chainsaws! (That would be a really good name for an emo band, if I do say so myself.) I think I'm just going to allow myself these next two months (hey, I'm realistic!) to be as giddy and fangirlish as I want, one last time.

I'm not really nervous per se, but I am getting those butterflies of excitement in the pit of my stomach. It still doesn't feel real enough, yet. However, with the increase in OotP previews, the more real the end seems to me.

Yes I am definately getting nervous. I keep worrying if it will be raining the day my copy comes (seeing as a live in Britain) because it might get soaked or that Royal Mail might have a workers strike on that day or my copy gets lost in the post.....:sigh: *takes deep breath*. I'm probably not going to be able to stop pacing up and down our living room waiting for my copy to arrive. I am also trying to avoid spoilers, even fake ones, which all are at the moment......hopefully.

dunno about nervous, I'm really excited, the book should be good, just a shame that it all be over perhaps by Sunday night:wow:

oh god yes, im ridiculously nervous. it's so hard to believe it's almost over. i have devoted the past four years of my life to harry potter and it's just numbing the fact that's its OVER. i dont think it will fully sink in until im holding the book in my lap, and crying.

July 7th, 2007, 5:39 pm
I'm more excited then anything. It's strange, I'm not really focusing on this being the end. Maybe I'm in denial, I'm sure it will hit me when I'm done reading and there is no more wondering what will happen in the next book.

im very nervous. i have a feeling that im going to cry when i see the book in the bookstore. i'll probably cry from the time i see the book till im done reading it. if Harry dies, i will have an empty feeling in me for a long time. thats what happened when i read the last book of cirque du freak. when i found out what happened i felt empty and incomplete for 3 months. then i re-read the series and cried. im going to cry so much. the reality that its ending had hit me yet but its only a matter of time before i realize its the end and that all thats left are 2 movies. im going to cry life i did when dumbeldore died. i cried 3 hours from the time Snape said AK. my parents thought i was physco.

bring on the kleenex and hot chocolate

July 7th, 2007, 9:17 pm
I am getting nervous. I've set so much store by this being a children's book and therefore she won't kill off Harry, that if she does I will be devastated. Devastated I tell you!

I really want to know the ending, but only if it's the ending that I want to read, so that is making me nervous.

LoveFool4Life
July 7th, 2007, 9:24 pm
I'm too nervous - and that's putting it delicately, lol.

J.K. last night declared it at a "blood bath", so that's not very comforting to be perfectly honest. :| I cried like a baby when both Sirius and Dumbledore died, not feeling like myself for a few days afterwards. People thought I was depressed, lol. But hey, we've grew up alongside these characters, so it's perfectly normal (well, kind of. They are fictional afterall).

My eyes will most probably swell up when I have Deathly Hallows in my eager hands for the final time, but I'll try and stay cheerful for my friend who's with me on the night, lol. But knowing me, I'll give in! I hope the atmosphere will be amazing.

I'm really trying not to hang out to these words that J.K. said last night also. She said that she'll never say never about this being the final ever book. But hey, I'll keep my fingers crossed. ;) You never know, in a few years time, us Harry Potter fans'll be lining up again once again! *Wishes*

SO EXCITED THOUGH!

July 7th, 2007, 9:36 pm
I'm scared, excited, heartbroken... I can't read anything JKR has to say or get on CoS without crying anymore. I tried the DH Predictions thread, but I couldn't get past the first entry. The movies being on isn't helping. I want it, and know the ending that's coming will be the only one I want.. but I'm still fearful. These characters and the motivations behind them mean so much. I've been a wreck as of late- and that's without DH; once it's in my hands and real, I don't know how I'm going to finish.

July 7th, 2007, 9:46 pm
I really don't know I have now lived with Harry in my life for nearly 10 years (most of my life) and I really don't want it to end but it will kill me no to know how it ends so I will be standing with millions of others at midnight wating for the doors to open so I can walk in and get the final instalment.

Oceania
July 7th, 2007, 9:54 pm
Nervous? Yes. Excited? Totally. Suffused with a feeling of dread? You bet.

The characters have been a part of our lives for a decade. A decade! That's a long time to build attachments to characters, places, stories.

My husband has mentioned several times, that he's noticed I have quit talking about the series, which is unusual for me. I told him that I just can't think about it right now; it's too close to the end. My theories are set, my ideas well trod; I have nothing more to say until I read it.

And I will read it with so many mixed feelings, I won't know what to do!

This feeling...the feeling of shutting that last book on an amazing series, has happened twice to me before...with The Lord of the Rings, and The Dark Tower series. I'd like to tell you it's pleasant---I'd like to tell you it's a relief. But it's not. It's sad. Sad for the characters you love, who have been through so much and are moving on from some cataclysmic adventure into the unknown. Sad for you, because you'll never see these characters again. Sad because you will never again be able to wait with antcipation and bated breath. Sad because you will never again wait in line for a midnight release, or talk loads of theory and speculation with your friends.

In other words, you can't go home again.

But---every story needs closure. And we've been waiting a LONG time to see Harry kick Voldemort's butt. Adn we've been waiting a long time for the truth on Snape. It's time for it to be done. But I don't have to be happy about it. Just sad, relieved, and happy to have been a part of an adventure of the type we haven't seen since lord of the Rings was released.

Long live Harry. :)

July 7th, 2007, 10:31 pm
Nervous? I guess that's one way of putting it. I'm nervous because I know that at least two main characters are going to die, and I'm sure there will be more. It makes me nervous because for the first time, I don't have a set idea of who I think will live or die. With OotP, I turned out to be wrong, but it was comforting to be expecting something. In HBP, I knew it had to be Dumbledore, so I was more shocked how it happened than that it actually happened. This time, I have no idea. It's not remotely comforting.

Plus, no matter who lives and dies, we will be saying goodbye to everyone. It's sad and heartbreaking.

But at the sametime, I've started getting twinges of excitement whenever I pass a book store and Barnes and Noble draws my gaze like a bug zapper. I'm ready to know what happens, although not to say goodbye.

Oh, you know, I once read a quote that summed this up perfectly... let me see if I can find it...

If you have never spent whole afternoons with burning ears and rumpled hair, forgetting the world around you over a book, forgetting cold and hunger - If you have never wept bitter tears because a wonderful story has come to an end and you must take your leave of the characters with whom you have shared so many adventures, whom you have loved and admired, for whom you have hoped and feared, and without whose company life seems empty and meaningless - If such things have not been part of your own experience, you probably won't understand what Bastian did next.It's from The Neverending Story, but I've never actually read it - someone just posted this quote, and I fell in love with it. It's kind of making me weepy rereading it now, heh... god, I'm really going to miss these books =/

But most of all i'm nervous because i really don't know if i'll understand anything in english. Now i'm reading HBP in english and if i hadn't read it in greek i wouldn't understand a thing..

I work at a Borders and yesterday (Friday) as I was getting ready to punch in for work I heard my supervisor say, "I've got 5 skids on the truck out here. I think it's Harry Potter." I completely jumped for joy! I kept saying,"HARRY POTTER?? Really?? It's here!!" I was so excited!

It seems so real to me, seeing those cases in the back. The last book is in those, and there won't be anything else afterwards. I'm so anxious to read DH and see what's in store for Harry on his final quest, and I can't wait to read it, but I'm also sad because I know it's the end. :sigh:

I'm nervous and excited at the same time. I can't wait to read DH but I'm sad that it'll be the last. I just know that I'll do exactly what I did when HBP came out too. I inhaled that book in one day. Everytime I thought about putting it down, I picked it back up because I just had to know 'what comes next'. I'm sure I'll end up doing the same thing with DH but sadly, that means I'll arrive at the tragic end of however many characters that much faster. Sigh. This is going to be so very bittersweet...

I think I will finish and want to search online to make sure there isn't another book coming. (I would like to think that the story will conclude in a way that ends the story nicely so that I won't need to vent online.) :cool:

In thirteen days all will come crashing down...

Secrets will be revealed,

and the final battle will take place.

Haha. I sound like a trailer.

Anyway, yes, yes. I have that feeling. I begin to shake every time I think of the book. Oh good gosh. I'm going to cry when I have the book in hand...

I'm not nervous, just excited. I wanna' see how it ends and how it all wraps up. I don't know why everyone's going to be sad at this point, it's not like Harry's leaving us forever...by a long shot.

Who knows if Rowling will right again? We have movies, games, fanfictions, the fandom won't die down for at least a year or two and then you'll still have crazy fans for the movies/books.

I'm more excited than scared. We all knew it was coming sometime, now we just have to enjoy it and read it over and over again until you can drain each piece of fun out of it.

I think I will finish and want to search online to make sure there isn't another book coming. (I would like to think that the story will conclude in a way that ends the story nicely so that I won't need to vent online.)

BBenton357, I would'nt count on it! I believe JK said something along the lines of ... there's going to be a lot of discussion going on even after the 7th is out. She implied that there are going to be important bits that we'll all need to run to Mugglenet in order to figure out. (I added the Mugglenet bit)

I hope all the REALLY important bits get tied up properly though! I expect to be wowed by the 7th and it's rare for me to feel this way about a book. I usually appreach each book knowing that I may be dissapointed. After the last six though, I don't doubt next Saturday is going to be just magical! (excuse the cliche but i really couldn't help myself) Can't wait, can't wait can't wait!

Hear here!!

But, yea we all knew it was coming, but we didn't want to accept that fact.

I'm going to be in tears when it ends. Not only because I'm sure JK has a spectacular wrap up, but also because this series has been my retreat. If something was wrong in my life, I was able to goto the books and read them. It's going to be sad when they end.

But yes, read the books over and over again until you don't cry in book six
book six when Dumbledore is killed by Severus
or until you don't laugh at Umbridge when she gets what she had coming to her in the Forbidden Forest. That'll take many a moon for me. I still cry in book six. :no:

But yes...'twill be sad.

Has anyone seen that movie where people are coming out of their local bookstore with the HBP and some jerk drives by and shouts out the ending! I may just have to have someone else run in and grab it as I hide in the car with earplugs on!

Ok, back on topic. It feels kind of weird because I remember back in the day when POA was just coming out, and I was like whats the big deal its just a dumb book... but then I noticed them on my shelf untouched since I was in the second or third grades, and I started reading them. At that point I had only read the first three, and stopped on the fourth because the length turned me away. So I started again, and finished the fourth half way and stopped again. Finally the HBP was coming out so I decided that that was the time to sit down and read all the Harry Potters, and I did... and since then they have been my favorite books! Well mostly...

The thing that has me nervous the most would have to be that I only have 6 days to read all the books before the new one comes out! If I don't get them finished then, well I will have to hold off on the DH!!!!!! The horror!!!! :lol:

Yeah, I'm nervous also, but I haven't been this excited about the publication of a book ever. I'm looking forward to 7/21, but I'm also enjoying this time leading up to the books release. This is a "once in a lifetime" thing, and I'm aiming to enjoy it all. My biggest problem will be to avoid the internet and other mass media until the book is read.

I'm getting nervous because I'm only on GoF and I want to finish the series before it comes out. However, after CoS closes I may be able to do it as I do spend 2+ hours on here a day, and that time can be devoted to reading after that.

I don't know if I would say that I am nervous. I am definitely excited. I was just thinking that once I finish book seven it will be great to come back on the forums and send owls to those particularly rude people and say "Ha I was right and you were wrong." Just kidding Mods.

I'm not what you could call nervous. I think a better description would be along the lines of excited! I'm not nervous about who's going to die or not, because no matter what, someone I like in the book is probably going to die. That's life :(

I'm really nervous about Snape :scared:. I really want him to be good, and, IMO, the evidence points to him being good, but I know that JKR may surprise us. IMO, the whole Snape plot wouldn't make much sense if he was evil (that's just my opinion, of course, I don't want to start any Snape fights.)
I'm also worried that I won't like DH. All this excitement for nothing.
On the whole, though, I'm more excited than nervous. Eeeeek, only 11 more days :clap:!
But still, what if i don't like it? :eeep:

I think I am feeling a mixture of nervousness and excitement. Thankfully, the movie is helping to take my mind off the book slightly but after tomorrow night, I'm going to be full blown book obsessed. I don't want to say goodbye to the series but I really can not wait to see how it all ends! And, to be honest, I am quite scared about which characters will snuff it. I know I'm going to be needing the tissues!

I know exactly what you mean! I want that book in my hands now, but at the same time I don't. I mean, then there's no more speculating, no more predictions, no more obsessively anticipating the next book. What am I supposed to do? Twelve days couldn't pass by slower, but then it's all coming so fast at the same time. Everything's so overwhelming!

I'm nervous for several personal reasons unrelated to Harry Potter. I'm so nervous over these, in fact, I will find it impossible to be nervous over Harry Potter until the other side of Sunday. Then, I'll go insane.

I don't know what to feel. There are just so many emotions, it is confusing.

I am more then nervous. I am over-excited, I don't know how I will get over it all. It will be so intense...

I hope I can avoid spoilers till I get my copy (my brother will try absolutely EVERYTHING to spoil it for me, I bet). As soon as I got it I will go to the empty flat of a buddy and read it.

Boy even when I think of getting and reading the book I get tears in my eyes. Soon it will be over!

I'm getting nervous, definitely. These past couple of months I've been see-sawing between wanting to get my hands on DH as soon as possible and wishing the release date was much further away (crazy, I know). Reading the very last Potter book, after nearly ten years, and knwoing that this is it, it's making me jumpy.

im terrified! i just cant believe its neally all over and how quick its all happened. i end up looking at my countdown in shock and sometimes i just wish i could pause it for abit so i can enjoy more time with theories etc. i dont have any idea how im going to react once i get to that last page... its like the end of a chapter of my life in a way along with my childhood, abit dramatic of me but thats just me lol.
But on the other hand im really excited on finding what happens and if any of all our theories come true.
One thing i do know is that ill remember the 21st for the rest of my life

*Shudders* I'm 17 now, the same age as Harry and Ron will be for Deathly Hallows... its so sad, when you realize that after DH, we'll never again read about Hermione's clever schemes, never again argue over whom Snape is loyal to, never again shall we be able to laugh and cry with The Boy Who Lived. Its really the end of our childhoods. Although some of us may be older or younger, we'll still feel the same after DH- that our childhood has been ended.

Im so sadddddddddddddddd and i know ill be so nervous on that day. but still im excited to know what happens and happy that everything will be answered in just a few days...gosh, never knew one person would have so mnay mixed feelings.

You have no idea. I go through these phases where I REALLY want time to go faster, and then I REALLY want it to take longer to get here. And in-between I'm worrying for my favorite characters and worrying about it being the last one and if I'll like it or not. :sigh:

And like PadfootBlack16 said, the forums might close down any minute if the shipping of the books is confirmed, and I don't want all the fun to be over.

I have devoted so much time to theorising and reading and thinking about these books. It's going to be sad to see the end.

Edit: Hooray, my 100th post! Finally.

I'm so nervous. I'm re reading HBP for the second time this summer, and somtimes I stop reading and think 'it's actually going to be over soon.' We are all going to know what will happen to the trio and other characters. This is a major event. All I know is that I'm pretty sure I'm going to be shedding some tears.

'And like PadfootBlack16 said, the forums might close down any minute if the shipping of the books is confirmed, and I don't want all the fun to be over. '

What's happening with the forum? I thought only certain parts of it were closing? Aww - the fun of speculating will be over - and for me it only just begun (well, here).

I'm getting nervous; I've just realised, this is it. Then it's all over. We'll know everything we need to know in the Hogwarts world. The last Harry Potter midnight ceremony. I loved, from books one to three, not yet knowing everything, being left a little in the dark. Soon, everything will be there for us - it's rather exciting, but I am nervous that the book may not be as great for me as I hoped if it's like the sixth book. And then it's over.

Harry has been part of my life for many years. I can't wait to pass down the excitement of the series to my children.

Gahh! I'm excited, nervous, and sad at the same time! Mostly sad, unfortunately. I just came from watching the midnight release of OotP. It made me sort invision a bit of the Last Battle in DH, and got me really emotional.

Okay this is what happened: my grandma was asking questions about it the next day. She doesn't really understand Harry Potter so it made it a bit funny at first, because we'd say something like, "It would've been a lot better with quidditch though." then she'd say, "What's quidditch?" and we'd just be gasping uncontrollably with disbelief. Then she'd say something like, "So did Harry Potter become the boy friend of that girl with the brown hair?" She doesn't really look into it much so she just assumes it's Harry and Hermione. Anyway, being the die hard r/hr shipper that I am, I half-pretended to sniffle, saying, quite dramatically, "Oh my god! Grandma, you traitor!"

We had a few laughs after that, but then we got into the subject of whose going to die... and before I knew it, the half-pretended sniffle turned into real, hysterical sobs and that's when I really came to terms with the fact...that if Harry dies, and we're all hoping he doesn't...it's definitely going to be an extremely sad, sad end to an era.:upset: I'm probably going to store up on kleenex before I pick up my copy.

I can't quite believe it's coming in ten days. Thing about it. Just ten days and then we'll know EVERYTHING. Byebye cover analysis, byebye editorials, byebye theory prediction.

Okay, now I'm feeling depressed.

It's funny, I really wasn't all that excited until quite recently... I mean, I had the initial "OMG HARRYPOTTER*FLAIL*" thing, but for a long while it's just been exams, school, exams, exams. And even when they were over I wasn't in the Harry groove... but then I came back on here, and all the excitement is bubbling over again!

Though I have to say, it's very surreal that a series I started reading when I was 9 is now coming to an end right after I finished High School. Like Stephen King said, it's goodbye to childhood in 9 days. Now I'm nervous :P
