IF YOU HAVE NOT YET READ "HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS", THEN BEWARE THAT THERE ARE SPOILERS BELOW THE CUT!
As I am sure plenty of others have I've also read DH this week (twice, actually). And although very few people will probably read this, I just had to give my thoughts some air, so I am here trying to post my thoughts in a somewhat organized manner.
Uses selective colors and curves.
July the 21th, the seventh and last installment of the Harry Potter series will be out for sale.
For people like me, who've been a fan since the first book was published and who, in many ways, grew up with the books, this is a very special feeling. On midnight the night between the 20th and the 21st, anyone who wants to can open the last page of the book and see how the series ends. See who dies and who survives, who gets children and who is redeemed. Some of the main questions of the last couple of books will finally be answered: Who will die, Harry or Voldemort? Or both? Is Snape good or evil? And how wil Harry manage without his caring mentor, professor Dumbledore? Was R.A.B. Sirius's brother? And, to many, the most important question of them all - what happened to Sirius Black? What does the veil do?
For many people, the romance question is also important. Will Hermione and Ron's relationship last? And will Harry and Ginny be reunited in the end?
I have to admit I am looking forward to the book like a little child. But at the same time, the thought that it's the last book is, in a way, sad. The books have been such a big part of my childhood. I've speculated with friends, or online, I've laid awake wondering what will happen next, I've read every book several times and laughed and cried along with the characters. After book 7, none of that will ever be the same. I can still re-read the books, but now I'll know how it ends. Now the mystery will be solved. Now I have to read the books with the knowledge in my head that this person dies and this person turns out to be a Death Eater.
For many people who haven't read Harry Potter, this entire thing seems kind of idiotic. How much I care about the books and the characters, my "obsession" I guess some people would call it. All I have to say is, be seven years old again and read the books. You'll understand.
Just like Veronica Mars, in other words. Anyway, yesterday I made a few icons of her, so here they are
My name is Jenny, I am 16 years old, and on this blog I will talk about various things that mean something to me.
I am a very outgoing and social person, and I care a lot about politics and such.
Even though this is a big community, it is hard to get people to read one's blog, but even if no one fids this blog interesting at all I will keep posting, because its important for me to do it.
I think it is important for everyone to remember that no matter what people say:
... you are unique
... you are worth something
... your opinion matters (and you are entitled to an opinion, even if its not a popular one!)
... you always have some people who care about you
