Re: Thoughts on Deathly Hallows - one year later

OMG, what happened? Did I fall through the veil? There are all these dead people.

Anyway, it was a year ago today that I still had not read Deathly Hallows. I didn't start reading it til I think the 23rd. It was very hard to avoid spoilers because that meant I couldn't visit my favorite websites, even non-Potter related sites, as well as avoiding news sources just in case they mentioned anything about the book. I wanted to be spoiler-free and thankfully, for the first time since Goblet of Fire, I was. (my mom spoiled Half-Blood Prince by telling me why my sister was crying and my sister spoiled Order of the Phoenix by telling me who died).

No, I saw it, I just chose to ignore your profusions...

Severus Snape borrowing a turn of phrase (though not an exact quote) from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice?

Well, well... didn't we know that you are actually a romantic at heart?


Actually... to think of it... Mr Darcy plus a bit of Miss Bingley thrown in is a rather nice fit, character-wise.

This may have been a great Harry Potter tale, but I felt that I could have had a much better death scene. I love the dramatic (see the very emotional Umbridge good-bye scene for reference). The final scene was so anti-climatic for me. I was walking down a hall for goodness sake. I wasn't even dueling a Death Eater. Oh, how I would have loved to be in the midst of battle, maybe even taking of few of them out with me at the same time. Such a golden opportunity for exciting literature was wasted by what was almost an afterthought. JK Rowling, have you considered a rewrite?

You need to rethink that, Fred. It was a very dramatic moment! You had just reconciled with your brother, Percy, and then...

I have read the works of Mrs. Rowling, and, even though she seems to have the ability to entice the reader, she seems to have missed the opportunity to tell the fascinating story of the Malfoy family. Instead, she chose to write about Mr. Potter, a regular child... Oh well, it's her loss.

I agree with my husband's opinion. She missed the opportunity...

As if we need another book about pure-blood nutters like you.

I was under the impression that you were pure-blood, too. And a nutter, also.

Yes, I'm jealous of an immature, reckless, shallow person like you, whose only purpose in life was to get framed, go to Azkaban, break out, and die. I'm dying of jealousy.

You're jealous of what you could never get, no matter how much you sucked up to Lucius. You were never a full member of their little gang, were you? And your life has been so much better. Pining after my best mate's wife and taking revenge on a proxy, who happened to be a little boy. So much maturer.

Re: Thoughts on Deathly Hallows - one year later

Mr and Mrs Malfoy, I have to say that I greatly enjoy reading secondary works about your family. By which I mean fanfictions, that is to say, Muggle works of fiction which are not the, um, strictly factual account rendered by Ms Rowling.

But, you two have to know: I do love Harry.


*is in stitches over the latest exchange between Sirius and Snape*

Professor Snape, have I told you lately that you rock my world?

Sirius mate, I loves ya, but Severus pwns.

P.S. I'd better not egg you on though. Boys, boys! Time out!

I was acting on orders, Black. I was being useful, something that you could never be.

And I was protecting the blasted kid! I would have never let anything happen to Lily Evan's son, even if he was the living image of his arrogant father!

In some weird alternative reality he might.

Yeah, he really appreciated your special attention, I'm sure. Lily probably enjoyed all the times you taunted him as well.

By the way, it's Lily Potter.

Even if I was protecting him, I had to teach the boy some modesty, something that he really lacked. Just like his father.

And when I met her, she was Evans. So she will always be Evans to me.

You're fond of the three Ds, aren't you?

Denial. Delusion. Desperation.

Excepting the time you called her "Lily Potter" in Dumbledore's office, of course?

*prods gently* But Professor Dumbledore said that other teachers found him modest and likable and that he himself found Harry an engaging child. And, having read the biographical books of Harry's life by Ms Rowling, I would agree with his assessment. I am a great admirer of your courage, Professor Snape (please observe my signature ), acting as double agent all those years -- in a very thankless role -- but I do believe that your perspective on Harry was somewhat ... skewed. You saw into his memories, did you not? So you know that his childhood with his aunt and uncle (having lost his parents so tragically) was not a happy one.

I will say no more, but I believe my point is made ...



Sirius ... I did say I loved ya.

I see you're reading self-help books now. Good for you, they might be able to help you overcome your... Problems.

And those two so-called fangirls... Go away. Stop stalking me.
