....this scrawny, black-haired, bespectacled boy who didn't know he was a wizard became more and more real to me.

Which house would you most like to be in?




I am a Ravenclaw and do not mind that (although I do look bad in blue). I mean, I guess the reasons why you're in a certain house are pretty obvious so there's not much to say. I value intelligence and I like to around myself with such people. However, I would probably be the person stuck outside the dormitory because I wouldn't be able to answer the damn question.

Least fave female character and why.


I think Umbridge is an absolute given so I won't waste my time discussing her because you've all already said everything. But the other female character I really dislike is actually Auntie Muriel.


What a nasty bitch. She is insolent, nosy, intolerant, selfish, etc. Stop gossiping and believing every damn think you read. If you didn't personally know Dumbledore to the extent that Doge did then how the hell can you discuss his childhood intelligently? Oh right, you can't!

Are there any of the film adaptations that have made you angry because they've ignored important parts of the book?


Why yes, of course there are! Shall we go book by book?

To be honest, there isn't much about SS that really irks me. The whole lack of a magical ambiance is what makes the film one of the least enjoyable. The thing about SS is that it instantly throws us into this incredible world where anything can happen and the film doesn't do much to capture that like the book did. I wish there was the little extra part in the beginning of the movie where Harry has to go back to the Durleys because it doesn't make sense that he left on his birthday and went to school the next day!

I'll just leave this picture here:

1. I wish S.P.E.W. was left in because even though it isn't integral to the plot as a whole it tells a lot about Hermione and it's what eventually brings her and Ron together.
2. The conversation between Krum and Harry about Grindelwald. Now I understand that Deathly Hallows wasn't out when this movie was made so they couldn't have known but maybe JKR should've said something?

1. Obviously Snape's memory should have been done better.
2. The scene where they're cleaning out the study and they SEE THE DAMN LOCKET
3. St. Mungo's to develop Neville's character and show what kind of life he's lived. His revenge and ultimately the courage that he exhibits by killing Nagini in the end is fueled by the fact that right in front of him are the people that destroyed his parents. At least, that's what I think.
4. A little more in the Department of Mysteries would've been nice.

1. The introduction of Scrimgeour
2. Introduction to Tonks and Lupin
3. Bill getting hurt
4. Why the heck were they walking through the great hall after Dumbledore's death?
5. We were told that oh yes, Voldemort made Horcruxes and split his soul. But it wasn't made out to be as incredible (and I mean that in the same way Ollivander means "great wizard") as it really is. The man ripped apart his soul and when I walked out of the movie theatre with my friend who hadn't read the book she didn't understand the magnitude of what he really did. She barely understood what a Horcrux was.
6. Voldemort's damn history.

Favorite Movie?




I think that out of all the films so far this one stayed closest to the books. And while I try to judge the movies separate from the books I still like it for that reason. What makes the movie good is that it can be watched without reading the books and you can know what's going on unlike, for example, Half Blood Prince. What also makes this movie incredible is the actors. Who was more perfectly casted than Evanna Lynch, Imelda Staunton, and Helena Bonham Carter? Nobody (with the exception of Dan just because I love him).



The scene where Harry is telling Sirius about how he feels (the one where they're looking at the family tree) is so FANTASTICALLY acted by Dan. It really makes you feel for him and understand the struggle he's going through.


And I cannot end this entry without talking about Sirius' death scene. I didn't like how he was just sucked into the veil and I didn't like that Sirius called Harry, James right befoer his death. Way to totally mess up people who haven't read the books views of Sirius and Harrys relationship. However, my heart broke when Harry was screaming in Lupins arms. I think the silence was cool and ~artsy~ but I wish we could hear some of Harry's screams. Although, it did remind me of how when you're so upset and you're in so much pain sometimes you can't make any noise. Sometimes you try to scream and nothing comes out. It hurt to watch that and I felt for Harry so hard.

Deathly Hallows is by far my favorite book. If it makes any sense at all, it makes me feel giddy. It's so different than all of the other books because it lacks a sense of security (no Dumbledore, no Hogwarts, etc.). Anything could have happened at any moment and nobody would have been there to save the Trio. I had grown so attached to every character and to finally see how things played out and how everyone ended up made my heart swell. There wasn't anything I was disappointed with in this book (yes, even the epilogue) and I can't say that with any of the other books, really. It also contains some of the most beautiful, moving and stimulating writing I've ever read (The Forest Again, The Flaw in the Plan).
