    Hi guys. (Pluralized because it's going out to Barrels and Shining Raichu).

    I'm back from being M.I.A... again. :p

    In my defense, I had finals, AP Exams, and I had to get ready for prom and Junior/Senior social (which is like a giant costume party).

    I'm basically an asshat.

    But now that summer's here, I'm going to be on more! I promise! For real this time.

    If it makes you feel better, here's me and my friends dressed as characters from the Legend of Zelda for my Junior/Senior social?

    I'm Navi, the third one from the left.

    Prom was fun though.

    Finals and AP Exams? Not so much. :p


    Also, I tried to send this as a PM but that didn't work out, so here ya go. :p

    1. Serf may just be the most pretentious one-syllable word in the English language. It is worthy of Hyacinth Bucket herself.
    2. I think Ginny had just the right amount of character development for a generic teenage girl on the periphery of a story . I wouldn't say it was zero, she did evolve from a timid girl with a crush on Harry to a semi-confident young teenager who, at the very least, partially got over her obsession with Harry and got on with her life! Cho, however... well, if she's gonna lose her **** like that every time one of her boyfriends gets murdered, she's not going to make it very far in life.
    3. LOL oh wow. I had no idea that was a thing. Now I have IN-SUFF-ER-A-BLE-KNOW-IT-ALL-HER-MY-KNEE-GRAN-GER playing on repeat in my head. So, thank you for that. It turns out that was the song that awoke my sleeper cell system Summer Glau-style and now there's a dead-person bonfire in the middle of my town.
    4. No, we don't get Terry Wogan/Graham Norton making fun of everything. I'm not even sure who Terry Wogan is. We get sub-standard Australian comedians doing the same thing, but not funny because not British .
    5. I am not a Krumshipper. I don't like him and I would actually prefer she be with Ron than with Krum. However for the sake of bloodlines, Krum is a sexy stallion and Ron is the embodiment of all the flaws in the Weasley gene pool.
    6. MEAN :<

    OK since I can't be bothered typing out a long clever response at this time of night, I am going to give it to you in list form!

    1. What the hell is a serf?
    2. I love Ginny, Cho cries too much and is annoying.
    3. Nobody hates Gred and Forge. That's just impossible and i'm offended that you even brought it up!
    4. Eurovision is on tomorrow night my time, and no I will not be watching XD. I was invited to my friend's house to watch it but I did that last year and it was SO. BORING. I guess I'm not European enough to get it
    5. I hear Viktor Krum's loins were ready to make children that would have been far taller and whose genitalia would have been considerably larger than that produced by a mouth-breathing ginger
    6. Lee jordon would give Hermione mocha babies. This is not relevant to anything, but merely a statement of fact. I find the image of Hermione putting cornrows in her child's hair hilarious.

    DONE! XD

    Your logic is of course unassailable. If only Dumbledore had thought to teach the wizarding population the spell of "Kittienus changeius" before his untimely demise, the story may have just ended very differently. Perhaps the movie would have depicted Neville screaming like a little girl running across the bridge away from kittens, only to throw a wayward spell which would total the bridge and send hundreds of baby kittens plummeting to their watery end, just like the unwanted kitten babies on a farm are tied into a bag and hammer-thrown into the lake.

    Perhaps this is the way McGonagall ends her storyline! She decides to oversee the Battle of Hogwarts (which has now been renamed Operation Kitty in all history books) in her Animagus form, and is swept away in the great kitty purge of 1998 to be the ruler of the new-found cat kingdom created by the Hogwarts populace.

    Suddenly the concept of cats is embraced in the wizarding world. Pictures are hung on the Hogwarts staircase of cats who have long-since passed, and instead of the chattering one hears, there is the calming tones of mewing and purring. Umbridge would benefit greatly from this, as her decor choices would finally come back into style. Perhaps she would be employed as the Hogwarts interior decorator in the absence of her master Voldemort.

    Anyway, onto the miraculous tale of Ron and Hermione - kids she wanted, and kids she got! Two ugly ginger-haired mouth-breathers just like their father. Did you see those two in the final scene of Deathly Hallows? Those two are not destined for greatness. Her potential was squandered on children anyway; now she will never fulfil her destiny of being the most powerful witch ever born. It's a classic tale really; girl is smart and intellectual, girl meets boy, girl throws caution to the wind and marries boy right out of high school, boy holds girl back from her potential and suddenly they have twelve screaming kids in the back of a mini-van on the way to Walmart to pick out curtains for their mudhut in Terror-Town.

    ...well maybe it's not a classic tale. But Hermione is certainly far from the first to be led down the garden path by somebody who was not good enough to be in her vicinity .

    Your argument is potentially more ludicrous than my own! I accept your premise that Dumbledore would not leave the students to run amok around a teacherless classroom and will as such leave that alone.

    However, your assertion that because the students are Dumbledore-trained Transfiguration masters, the wizarding war is automatically won as though this is all it would ever take is so absurd it borders on insulting. It is somewhat like saying "Why don't you just unleash the US military into the battle of Hogwarts? Even wizards can't deny the force of raw Texan firepower!"

    Let me draw your attention to this passage from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince which automatically destroys your argument. Now, if you'll turn to page 24:

    The Prime Minister gazed hopelessly at the pair of them for a moment, then the words he had fought to suppress all evening burst from him at last.
    'But for heaven's sake, you're wizards! You can do magic! Surely you can sort out - well - anything!'
    Scrimgeour turned slowly on the spot and exchanged an incredulous look with Fudge, who really did manage a smile this time as he said kindly, 'The trouble is, the other side can do magic too, Prime Minister.'
    And with that, the two wizards stepped one after the other into the bright green fire and vanished.

    One could submit, however, that the Transfiguration teacher that Dumbledore did employ in McGonagall's stead, being a different person, may not have had the backbone that McGonagall did to stand up to Snape or the Death Eaters in the final battle, or care enough about Harry to do all that she did in the lead-up. He could even have employed a disguised Death Eater - Dumbledore himself has said that even he is not infallible.

    Your cupcake is on its way to England. I had to send it in five separate envelopes because one would not contain the cakey goodness. I hope it is acceptable to you to eat it in installments. Dieticians say that it is best to eat more often in smaller portions anyway as it aids in digestion. This is important if you are going to remain thin and beautiful. It will also help if we're going to get you laid again before your teen years are complete .

    I never once said I could beat Hermione, I only said Ron. Which I maintain is true. I expect Hermione would thank me anyway; she was always able to do better than him. I don't understand why she would have settled.

    I refuse to feed anyone who's too blindly warped to see that Ron is the epitome of grace, selflessness, wide-eyed wonderment and really great hair.

    LMFAO. Oh god I can't.

    Now, *ahem*, back into the serious business. McGonagall may be a less central character to the series, but that does not at all affect her degree of awesomeness. I also dispute the idea that if you remove her from every scene in which she appears, nothing would change. Think of all those Transfiguration lessons, the children running wild while Hermione attempts to read her textbook to get some degree of value out of the class. Eventually, Dumbledore decides he must step in and teach the class himself - after all, Transfiguration was his old post.

    Being the wonderful teacher and headmaster that he is, he transfigures the entire school into Transfiguration masters, however the extra time spent in the classroom and in lesson planning, exam marking and other teacherly duties means that he no longer has the time to put into such endeavours as The Order of the Phoenix and protecting Harry. Thus the entire wizarding war runs far less effective and efficiently and missteps taken by Dumbledore result in Harry dying and Voldemort ruling the land for all eternity. xD

    Never underestimate the importance of Minerva McGonagall sir. I will end you. No, she will end you. Whereas I'm absolutely positive that even with Ron's magical powers, I could take him in a fight

    I don't need to defend McGonagall, sir. She is more than capable of defending herself. Ron, on the other hand, would barely know the arse-end of a wand.

    His only skill is wizard's chess. It was very convenient that it came in handy that one time, but honestly how often would you find a practical application for that?

    Also, I want a cupcake. Fetch me one.

    LMFAO. "You do". omg dying.

    Though if I forgot Ron it was because he was an ultimately useless and forgettable character, not because of my dementia.

    I'm glad to hear that! Even if it is a somewhat Tuesdays with Morrie type friendship, what with me sitting here in my bathchair while you talk to me about the boy-wizard who was around during my childhood, so many years ago...

    Is that all you have to say for yourself? Usually you are one with the words!

    Or is this part of you no longer having time for the likes of me?

About Me

  • About Barrels
    I was born. Then I grew up. But that wasn’t fun, so I grew back down again and started catching Pokémon.

    Most people are decent - and the more friends you make, the better life gets. So if you'd like to say hi, go ahead and do that thing! ;)
    I like creating. Writing, drawing, vidding, programming… you name it, there’s a good chance I’ve failed abysmally at it. (Probably had fun though.)

    In general? Philosophising about stuff I’ll never know, reading Brian Michael Bendis, ordering things I have no need of from Amazon, arting around in Photoshop and watching old Munsters episodes. Not all at the same time.

    Snorlax. Since forever. I used to dream about getting a big ol’ Snorlax-shaped beanbag.

    …Who am I kidding? I *still* dream about that.
