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.

Comments

1.) I was really expecting one of the MAIN characters to die. I thought Harry was doomed from the start. But he didn't, and instead other characters died in what seemed like a "Well, someone has to die, so I'll pick ones that the readers will be sad about" lol.
Actually, I'm pretty upset about how Harry died, but had a talk with Dumbledore and CAME BACK TO LIFE!!!!!!!!! Ughhhhhh, I HATTTTEEEE THAT!!! Like, geez. It's one of the lamest things to put in a book.

4.) Every friend I have that has been into the series (and considering my generation, it's a lot) have HATTTTTEEEEDDDD that part, to the point of denying its existence. I really hope there aren't a bunch of people elaborating on that chapter and writing fanfiction. I've never looked. I REALLY hope they don't put that in the movie :(
Really, nobody needs to see that.
And Albus Severus............... I cannot BELIEVE J.K. did that. Like, come ON! Kids are mean, and that's the WORST possible name EVER. That kid will prefer to be named Apple... he really would! lol.
It was bad enough Dumbledore and Snape had such names, but the two together? That's just bad. And Albus Severus Potter doesn't even roll off the tongue well at all.

+ I grew up reading the H.P. books. I started reading them when only 1-4 were out, when I was like 13 or something. And to have a book that ended with THAT Epilogue? Yeah, I wasn't very happy. And this was on top of the fact that it dragged on, was unbearably boring at times, and Harry had a DEAD AND CAME BACK TO LIFE AFTER HEARING UNKNOWN INFORMATION FROM DUMBLEDORE, THEN COMING BACK TO LIFE (and using it against Voldemort, I think too.... I might be wrong about that?) just...... ugh.

There were things I liked though, and I want to reread the whole series, since the first four I haven't even read since I was 13, lol. I'm looking forward to the movie, I think the directors will do a good job, and make an entertaining movie. I'm hoping they exclude the death/life scene and the epilogue though lol.

1.) I really think it would've been better if one of the main characters died.. preferably Ginny or Harry because then that awful epilogue wouldn't have been able to exist. LOL. But in all seriousness, there were so many unneeded deaths. Like Hedwig. POOR THING. I MEAN, OUT BY CHAPTER THREE and not a GOOD death either. "OH CRAP, BIRDIE HIT THE DASHBOARD, BAI BAI!!!"

JK COULDN'T HAVE GIVEN HER A GOOD DEATH? POOR BIRDIE.

AND THAT TALK. OH MY GOD, THAT TALK. HOW. LAME. The last, like, six chapters of the book I was facepalming over and over and over because of the things she wrote.

4.) THAT'S WHAT I WAS THINKING. KIDS. ARE. CRUEL. I don't care if they're going to Hogwarts, they're still going to get TEASED. It's bad enough that they're probably going to be teased about how "oooooh your daddy saved the world, BIG DEAL," you know? I just couldn't get over the names. How unoriginal and completely lame. I, like yourself, would like to think that chapter doesn't exist because it was a disgrace to the whole series.

I absolutely adored the series as a whole with the exception of the last 50 pages in the last book. I watched the first movie again today adn it always makes me remember just how freaking awesome that Wizard's Chess chapter was in the first book. It was beautifully written and beautifully done in the movie... I love that. So amazing.

Every time I watch the movies, I want to reread all the books!!! Well... maybe skip the last one because it really bored me at parts. Turning Snape into a woobie really bothered me. It was just like poor fanfiction.... and the HP section of fanfiction is one I will never venture into. I think that is the #1 section for Mary Sues and... that gets really old. LOL.

I forgot Hedwig died... is that how it happened? :( awww.
The ending was realllyyyyyyyyy bad, imo.
She could have handled it much better. It's a great series, and she can obviously WRITE.
I think if someone that hasn't seen any of the movies or read any of the other books read the last one, they'd probably think the whole series was shit... and probably put that right next to the Twilight series lol.

I've heard that she put in the epilogue so fanfiction writers couldn't write about "after the series" plotlines, and nobody could release anything else. I don't know how true that is, but I think it may have worked out that way for all the wrong reasons!
