Thoughts on Deathly Hallows - one year later

Jessica gave me permission to start a thread to celebrate the anniversary of the last book in the Harry Potter series.

I personally thought that Ms. Rowling did an excellent portrayal of me. I especially liked her re-dramatization of my appearance on PotterCast. I only wish she'd spent more time on the challenges I faced in rebuilding the Ministry after Voldemort's defeat. A subject which I'm sure would have fascinated everyone here. And of course my escape from the Death Eaters is only glanced over, yet another travesty. But I suppose she can only make these books so long.

After a year's refelection, what does everyone else think? Did Ms. Rowling protray you accurately? What do you think she got right? What did she leave out?

As always, please remember that we are of course fictional characters. We are in no way actual wizards and witches. Such a thing would be wholly impossible.

Re: Thoughts on Deathly Hallows - one year later

Good grief, has it already been a year since I stood in line outside Waterstone's in my hallowe'en costume shouting "owl post!" every time a seagull flew over?? Sorry, are we muggles allowed to post here?

And DH!!!

Re: Thoughts on Deathly Hallows - one year later

I was far more pleased with my portrayal in Half Blood Prince. I was a man of action in that book, resolutely killing Dumbledore, protecting Draco above myself, and teaching that arrogant Potter brat a well deserved lesson.

In Deathly Hallows, Ms. Rowling acted like all I had was revolting emotions. As if a man of my character would be driven by emotions. Indisputedly, I was fond of Lily Potter but she made it seem like my entire life centered around this. Very disappointing.

Also my death scene was far too one sided for my taste. She has me whimpering about finding Potter and then completeley leaves out my fight with that vile snake. And then handing my precious memories to that revolting Potter. Of course, I did hand him my memories, but I certainly didn't expect the whole world to get to see them!

You are very impressive, Mr. Shacklebolt. Please throw away the key to Umbridge's cell.

Re: Thoughts on Deathly Hallows - one year later

Awww, I thought she really exaggerated my role in things. I mean I did kinda run the DA but Luna and Ginny really helped too! And that snake thing was just instinct! I really didn't plan on any of that. I kinda blush a bit when I read those scenes.

But I am glad that she mentioned my role as herbology professor. I'm really proud of the work I do here and the kids are just fantastic!

I really enjoyed how this woman portrayed me; she really got my best qualities, and she wasn't shy about them, either... I also enjoyed my godson's character; he really is an amazing guy, and I think that is pretty clear in the books.

I just wish she had devoted more time (and pages) to my escape from Azkaban, or my amazing duelling skills...

Do you consider arrogance to be a good quality in that case?

Is this the pot calling the kettle black, Severus?

I thought Ms.Rowling did a very good job writing my final scene with Bellatrix. That woman had to be stopped. Yes, I may have slipped and used a word that I don't usually use, but it felt good.

I wasn't really that bossy at the Burrow, though, when I was getting ready for the wedding. I believe she exaggerated me a bit there.

Any confidence I have is due to my hard work and accomplishments, not some innate sense that I'm just better than everyone else.

That's because you know you're not.

So drooling over my mate's wife is now considered hard work?

Attempting to protect her was certainly more worthy of respect than handing her over to the Dark Lord's servant.

Re: Thoughts on Deathly Hallows - one year later

Sirius, it is good to see you. It is too bad you didn't get to see the final battle. You would have loved to get into that one.

And Snape, I am grateful that you gave me those memories. Without them I would never had known the truth. And without them I may have not done exactly what I needed to do.

What did you say about your battle with Nagini? Maybe I was distracted, but when did you try to fight him?

Neville, stop being so humble. You were awesome. Who else would have killed Nagini like that.

Don't you dare talking about that, Snivellus...

That's my godson, right there!

It's great to see you, Harry!

Sirius, my old friend. Good to see you here.

Harry, I am so proud of you.

What did you say about my wife, Severus?

Unthinkable!

I suppose you expected Harry would keep them to himself, since based on what Professor Dumbledore told you, you doubtless expected Harry to join you shortly in death. How does it feel to know that you did, in fact, succeed in your self-appointed mission to keep Harry safe?

Slightly nauseous.

Oh... thanks, Harry. Do you think? I just did as you asked, didn't I?
