sing with me
A penny for your thoughts
 
A picture so it lasts
 
Let's knock down the walls of immortality
 
Your fingers on my skin only you hear my fears
 
Only you can help me heal
 
I see forever in you here
 
It's never enough no matter how many miles stand between us this is love

Angel Of Music

I MUST RANT.



1.) I understand that people must die. Really. There's a war, people die, that's just the way that things are. BUT WHY DID TONKS AND LUPIN HAVE TO DIE? RIGHT after their son was born. I just felt that was unnecessary and quite cruel. And Fred? Out of all the people? FRED? Out of all the damn Weasleys, why did it have to be one of the funny adn quirky twins? What about Percy? NO ONE would've missed him, lol.

2.) The whole plot with Snape. I was curious what was goign to happen with him ebcause in the first few books, you always expect him to turn around and be all "YAAAAAAAAY I HATE YOU, POTTER, AND I LOVE VOLDEMORT! ALWAYS MY FAULT!!!" and he always ends up being a good guy. Always helps Harry get out of trouble in some way, shape, or form.

...so in the 6th book, when he killed Dumbledore and admitted that he was the half blood prince, I was like, "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!!!!!! SO HE REALLY IS WORKING FOR VOLDEMORT!!!!' SO that ended up being kinda cool, really. It surprised me and I didn't really expect it for some reason... probably because in the first 5 books, he was always portrayed as the 'somewhat creepy, needs shampoo BADLY, kinda good guy."

The fact that Snape was made Headmaster? Really annoyed me. It was because he was all "YAY TEAM VOLDEMORT" and that was why, but... aslfjlaskdfjlskdjf. It annoyed me.

Snape running away like a coward annoyed me but since he technically was a spy for Dumbledore the whole time because he twuwy wuvved Wiwy... BUT VOLDEMORT JUST KILLING HIM!? THAT. ANNOYED ME. I wasl ike, "THAT'S IT!? THAT'S IT. YOU'RE NOT GONNA TELL US MORE. YOU'R EJUST GOING TO KILL HIM OFF." I was pissed to say the least. I didn't expect Snape to die, I really didn't.

....SNAPE LOVING LILY? ALKSJDLAKSJDKLAS UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. To me, it seemed like the oldest writing trick in the book. "Let's make him a good guy and really want to protect Harry because he loved Harrys' mommy!!!" -_- I thought it was neat how they lived near each other when they were younger, but the fact that they were best friends during Hogwarts? That just seemed so far fetched and fanfiction.net worthy for me. Snape just seemed so asexual to me the entire series, so maybe that's why I had a hard time believing it, but...s dkfljasdfj. BLAH.

The only thing I really liked about Snape's role in this book was his Patronis. I thought it was nifty how it was HIS doe shaped Patronis... but again, the fact that it was the same as Lily's because he loved her so much? *gag*

3.) The last 'battle' with Voldemort and Harry. Lacked so much. It was basically Harry just mouthing off and going, "NEENER NEENER NEENER!!!" and Voldy being all, "O_O" It seemed so unbelievable for me. If I were in Voldemort's shoes, I would've been like, "KID. YOU'RE ANNOYING ME. HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO KILL YOU!? DON'T ANSWER THAT, I WILL JUST KEEP TRYING TO GET YOU TO STFU."

4.) That final chapter. The "Nineteen years later" chapter. REALLY, J.K? REALLY? THE WHOLE THING WAS TOO FANFICTION.NET. IT REALLY WAS. I kind of guessed that Harry and Ginny would end up together, same as Ron and Hermione. But... did they all have to have a reunion with their 2390582903583 children?

AND THE NAMES OF HARRY'S CHILDREN. SWEET BABY JESUS. Naming Lily and James after Harry's parents... it's all right. Lacks a LOT of creativity, but... people name their children after their parents all the time, I suppose. The one I had an issue with... ALBUS SEVERUS? ALBUS SEVERUS. I CAN'T FACEPALM ENOUGH. I'm sorry, but that REALLY REALLY BOTHERED ME. Their children probably had to go to public school before they turned 12... and I'm SURE that child was such a baby because he was beat up every day on the school yard for having such a name. -_-

I could've lived without that last chapter. I seriously felt like I went on FFN and found a random story that was like, "HARRY AND GINNY HAVE BABIES AND THEY HAVE THEIR OWN ADVENTURES! SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!!!" I'm sure there are over 10,000 stories on ffn that talk about their children's adventures in Hogwarts and that REALLY ANNOYS ME. I really don't like fics that are SOLELY about main character's children. If it's about the parents and they have children, that's not so bad... but JK just set up 29085029358 plotbunnies for fans to make up random fics about the Adventures of James, Lily, and LITTLE ALBUS SEVERUS.

*FACEPALMS*


OKAY. I just had to rant.

affection: aggravated

Comments

....ahahahahahahahaha.

I remember this rant when I made it :D

1. Rowling said that Tonks and Lupin died because she didn't kill Arthur Weasley in book five--when I heard that, I decided immediately that I WOULD NOT HAVE MINDED.

2. I was caught totally off guard with the Snape/Lily thing--ESPECIALLY because when I got the book at the midnight release, there were these tweens talking about how it ~must be true~ and I laughed my ass off. AND THEN IT WAS.

3. ...I honestly don't remember the final battle. huh.

4. Rowling has also said that she wrote the epilogue years ago. Like. When she said she'd written the first and last chapters at the same time? That was what she meant. Only she didn't self-edit and think, "Gee, I've written this beautiful masterpiece of children's literature with rich language and beautiful prose, this epilogue does not have the same tone and is kind of crap."

All that aside, I really did love the book a lot ;______________; I just pretend Tonks and Lupin didn't die :D

1.) I like Mr. Weasley, I do... but I would've rather have had him die than Tonks and Lupin. I mean, THEY JSUT HAD A BABY. To me, it was almost like she was paving the way for Teddy to be THE BOY WHO LIVED, THE NEXT GEN. -_- Lily and James died, Tonks and Lupin died... -_-

2.) IT. REALLY. ANNOYED. ME. It seemed like poor fanfiction... where Snape turns into a sobbing little woobie. -_- I can't imagine Snape sobbing and that whole chapter about "The Prince's Tale" REALLY just made me go, "o_O REALLY..." the whole time that I was reading it. The way that Lily was talking to Snape when they were younger... her calling him, "Sev" and everything... I JUST COULDN'T GET IT OUT OF MY MIND HOW IT CHANNELED FANFICTION.

3.) It was when Harry was just blabbing to Voldemort about what really happened with Snape, how Snape was on Team Dumbledore, how the wand really belonged to Draco (... I should've added him into my rant too. I'm not happy how he turned into a whiny, sobbing, terrified child the whole book. I quite enjoyed Draco being a pain in the ass brat lol), blah blah blah. All Voldy did was go, "ZOMG HOW DID YOU KNOW THIS!!!!" and it was annoying.

4.) "Gee, I've written this beautiful masterpiece of children's literature with rich language and beautiful prose, this epilogue does not have the same tone and is kind of crap."

THIS. THIS RIGHT HERE. That is how I felt the ENTIRE time I was reading that section!!! I just can't get over the Albus Severus part. That just... blew my mind and hurt it at the same time. That poor child... getting kicked and getting his head flushed down potties in elementary school because MOMMY AND DADDY DIDN'T THINK WHILE NAMING HIM.

It was just so... juvenile compared to the rest of the book. Or... compared to the rest of the series, really. I understand writing the first and last chapters at the same time. That is how I write 99.9999999999% of the time. I have to have a final goal in mind or else I jus twrite and write and it doesn't go anywhere. -_- But... I always make sure that the ending chapter makes sense adn isn't kind of crap, lol.


The book was okay. It wasn't... bad. But it wasn't as great as the others were, that is a fact. I knw that they're breaking it up into two movies... and the whoel time I was just thinking how... BORING... the first movie is going to be. Not much happens. There's the 7 Harrys part... the wedding... all the planning of breaking into the Ministry of Magic.... the actual breaking into the ministry of magic... and then more time in the forests. That's about it. There were some witty one liners and whatnot, but the book doesn't get interesting until they go into Hogwarts and McGonagall starts kicking ass. LOL. That was AWESOME. I cheered. :D
