I just hope that they really do justice to the book in the movie - even if both parts are 3 1/2 hours long!
    I know who you're talking about. Now for me to say something, .......

    Let me put it this way. With what I'm about to say next, I can't say this part without giving something away, even if I don't say the name. So heed this next statement carefully.


    I strongly advise ANYONE who hasn't read book 7 yet, to NOT LOOK IN THE SPOILER BOX, unless you want something to be given away. This goes for anyone who hasn't read any of the books, and wants to see the movies before reading them. If you want to be surprised, I STRONGLY URGE YOU to not read the spoiler box below!!!

    WARNING! SPOILER ALERT!!!!

    Spoiler
    The character who you made reference to, shall still remain nameless. But there's still a big hint I cannot avoid. I will say that I will be very disappointed if they bring back this character for the second part of the final film, just to be in the scene and the part of the story where the character is killed off. After all, this character was only in one movie, for the story the character debuted. But then was in every book since, except book 3, and had a prominent role in it every one that it was in. But was not included in the films. So it will be very disappointing if they bring the character back, just to be killed off.


    The preceding was a spoiler for book 7. If you haven't read the book, and you don't want anything ruined for you, I strongly urge you to not read the spoiler box!!!

    Thank you for your cooperation! Now onto your regularly scheduled programming, already in progress.

    Pretty expensive for paperbacks. Looks like a Target store, eh?
    Same at Costco:

    I like the locking chest of hardbacks better.

    I might need a new set soon. I've got three or four bad spines, one or two missing covers, and my CoS paperback is losing its front.

    The epilogue was so Mary Sue fan fic. Yuck.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I do love Lockheart, he's hilarious. But even better, I love that he reappears in 5. And Umbridge, she's so awful, such a great villain.

    I love these books. Sigh.
    A signature should go here.

    I also didn't know what Mary Sue fan fic was so I had to google it. Although the wikipedia article for Mary Sue fan fic isn't the best resource, it gave a good enough description for me.

    NNL, I couldn't have said it better myself

    I would agree with it a little bit, but......I still like the ending.

    I forgot about Lockheart in book 5! That was great! And I was sort of kidding about lockheart being annoying, he is really funny.

    THere was so much good stuff in the 5th book that I wish had made it into the movie. And I dont think they made Umbridge nasty enough in the movie either.

    I'm getting myself all worked up about those books again! They are so good.

    Re: Potter Fans, I've Got One Question For Ya!!!!!

    Yeah, Mary Sue fan fic is sicklenly sweet, very predictible, usually "lame" lol. Most of the time, the author of the fic subs herself as the girl in the story (only giving the character another name but making it obs. she's writing it about herself).

    It was just a huge letdown after such a great book and awesome series. In fact, I barely remember the last book, I read it so fat!, but I sure remember the lame epilogue clearly!

    After reading the epilogue I decided that Harry is not very creative when it comes to naming people.
