Yayayayaaaah

Finished Hairy Plopper last night at holycrap o' clock.
I liked it.
As before, a few points:


- Ahahahha. What.

- Paid attention to the quality of the writing for the first time in reading HP. Noticed the flaws. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmdidn't care.

- Strangely enough, I think I was more emotionally affected by Fred's death than any other in the whole saga. The twins weren't even my favorites, but...I dunno.

- Taking into account the amount of information that would have to be given to really satisfy fanatics, I thought it was generally well tied up.

- One thing that I would like to note is that, while reading the book, I had various songs from Hairspray stuck in my head. Do you know what it's like to be reading a scene about Death Eaters doing horrific things, and suddenly one of the more retarded parts of your brain starts screaming "SHEWASTHENEWGIRLINTOWNWHOAWHOAWHOAWHOA" over and over again?
You probably do.

- I am going to post something at some point in the future that has nothing to do with this particular book, but everything to do with crazy and HP. It prompted my brother to utter this exclamation: "You know, Dakota Fanning would make a good Harry Potter."

- I am still convinced that Voldermort's whole second rising was all because he wanted a real human nose. Jealousy is a great and terrible thing. D:

I am wiped out. And I don't think I have any tears left. I totally cried my way through the last few chapters. *seekrits*

I finished it, bawled my eyes out, and then went and saw Hairspray twice to cheer myself up.

Can I tell you that the only thing that made me cry (aside from a mad moment when Ron came back and saved Harry and Harry was liek "I TOLD YOU FAME SUX, MORON!") was when Dobby died.


REALLY??

DOBBY??

Dumbledore I didn't cry for. Not a tear for Sirius. Not Cedric, Fred - bummed but not teary over Tonks and Lupin - nobody except Dobby.

HE SAVED THEIR LIVES, DAMMIT!

Oh man, I bawled for Dobby too. This story was slathered in sad.

ya. sobbed for 20% of the book, remembered "Machine-Gun-Arm Lincoln as Professor Umbridge" and laughed for 5% of the book, sobbed even harder for 70% of the book.

So good, so good, so good, so good, holy fuck, Snape, and Lupin is dead and now I want to be too.

I don't want to join them in the grave exactly, but I don't think I would mind perishing at the hand of machine-gun-arm Lincoln.

I'll be posting later. Dobby I cried at a lot. Dobby and Hedwig. Fred a teeny bit. Remus, Tonks, Snape not at all (which surprised me), but this is my first official gloat: HA! I KNEW IT! (not directed at you specifically, mind)

The most comically inappropriate association I made was when Nagini was floating around in a bubble, all I could picture was the snake in Disney's Robin Hood floating around with a balloon over his head.

When I read about Snape, I was proud for the people who had guessed it right. Crazy times.

Now he's rearranging furniture with Sirius and baking muffins with Jesus.
