Because it contains SPOILERS!
Harry Potter 7 was completely enjoyable. Jeff and I arrived home Monday at 4:30 p.m., we unloaded my car, and then I threw in a load of laundry and promptly retired to my room to read. I only stopped to go to the bathroom, and stayed up until 2:30 in the morning so I could finish the book. I have to say I was RIGHT! I love being right!!!! I REPEAT, SPOILER AHEAD, THAT MEANS I’M GOING TO TALK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED IN THE BOOK SO IF YOU HAVEN’T READ IT AND YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW SKIP THIS PART! I totally knew Snape was in love with Lily Potter and that SHE was the reason he betrayed Voldemort, I KNEW IT I KNEW IT!! I love it when I’m right. Doesn’t happen very often. I also knew Rowling wouldn’t kill Harry off permanently, and I knew Ron and Hermione would get married and so would Harry and Ginny, and I was pretty sure that either Snape hadn’t actually killed Dumbledore OR Snape and Dumbledore had arranged the killing ahead of time. I’m so happy to have Snape vindicated, actually, because I wanted him to be a good guy, especially for the sake of the movies because I love Alan Rickman! I’m a dork, I know, but there it is. Oh and NEVILLE! Neville was simply splendid. What a grand chap. Only why didn’t Rowling have Neville and Luna marry each other at the end? Of course she never says they DON’T marry each other, she just doesn’t point out that they DO. For shame. And Mrs. Weasley screaming “Not my daughter you bitch” and taking on Belletrix Lestrange, oh well done, I LOVED it. Of course I was seriously bummed that she killed off Lupin and Tonks, bummer, but still! I suppose, dark lord and all, some people have to die right? The only problem is that I was so tired, and I read it in such a red hot haze, that my memories of it are pretty fuzzy and I’m going to have to re-read it to retain details. Like how the whole thing worked with Harry having to die but not die, I’m totally unclear on that. So . . . anyway! I think I will read all the books over, in the now complete set.
And now to reveal to the world just how deep my geekness goes, I will share this. I am so sad that the series is over. Seriously sad, the way you feel when someone you like moves away. It’s like I’ll be lonely for the characters and the setting and all that. Now you know I’m the biggest dork in the whole world. Okay maybe not the biggest, I didn’t need therapy to help me get over the grief of Dumbledore dying, so you know, maybe I still have a bit of a grip. But said grip is, perhaps, somewhat infirm.
Perhaps I’ll have to drown my sorrows in chocolate.
