Yes. 'Nuff said. XD

I like Tom Felton more now than I did before. He's such a nice guy.

He looks pretty sharp in other movies. Not a bad guy either, but I didn't like how he was getting all the love and Rupert Grint wasn't sharing that spotlight with him. I think he was really ignored in the middle of these films (prior to Movie 5).

Luna Lovegood was pretty unique. It was a pet peeve of mine to see her and Harry get together.
Spoiler:
They looked so adorable during the Slug Christmas party. And the way she was so excited to be going with Harry because she was pretty much a loner. Made me feel sorry for her. :/

Ah, really? :/ I suppose Harry and Ginny is okay (but I just find it too similar to James and Lily which is why I was not wholly supportive of this ship) Definitely was a Harry x Luna fan.

Isn't the the life of an Auror like being a government law enforcement agent in the real world? Nothing much to do there other than tracking down fugitives.

I was really disappointed that Harry actually settled down and had kids in the end though. D: He always seemed liek the type who wouldn't be able to sit still for long--always traveling, defeating evil, visiting people he's met from all over, etc. The idea of him just settling down is still foreign to me haha.
Aah…may have to disagree with you there. There were definitely a lot of hints you could call real solid canon (unlike canon you hear or see from the Pokemon anime). She was very careful in her choice of words, and the smarter readers picked up on that.

Well if you do think about it Harry wanted this peaceful life. It's been said over and over that he wanted to pursue it, be happy with people, enjoy, have a laugh. He was sick and tired of fighting, losing people, friends, and family whom he loved. Not exactly the sort of hero everyone expected him to be. Just a normal kid, that's what he wanted. An average kid with a um…scar on his forehead. That changed his life. Literally.

Actually, I believe that a quote from the books says that evil is like a Hydra, once you cut off one head, more than one grows back, so this might actually be a hint to something that will happen later if there is another book, but maybe I'm just paranoid.

It's been a while since I read them but I don't remember many relationships described (either blooming, well-established, or behind-the-scenes) that I really... felt anything from, if that makes sense. :(

As for Harry, I know he wanted a peaceful life but heroes in fiction never seem to settle down after their journeys. Especially near the end after spending so much time just hopping from place to place for the sake of staying hidden... I think that would really take a toll on someone mentally/emotionally and I imagine that kind of habit would stick for a while. But I tend to read too far (mentally) into characters sometimes. xD;

Is this the norm? Does every fiction follow this? What if JKR wanted it differently?

Oooh, we're becoming quite big right now. Anyways, we never know what Rowling has in mind unless we can use Legillimency so we don't really know what she wants to do.

Gryffindor gets the glory most of the time. What about Ravenclaw? ;A;
And other houses for that matter. xD

Well, about that. On a test I took long time ago, I was borderline Ravenclaw-Gryffindor. So I would still be happy being in Ravenclaw, though I'm not really that clever.

I notice that Gryffindor and Slytherin are the two extremes of the spectrum, while Ravenclaw tends to side with Gryffindor and Hufflepuff sides towards Slytherin. Further proof: note the locations where the dormitories are. Two towers; dungeon and kitchen.

As much as I love Gryffindor, they do get too much glory. The other houses need some love too! Whenever I RP on Harry Potter RP forums, my characters are usually in one of the other three houses. (Although on the one I'm on now, one of my characters is a Gryffindor alumni, but she fits in Gryffindor more than any other house.)

The reason why Gryffindor gets so much glory may be that it's in their blood. Descendants have that in them. If they didn't, then they wouldn't be Gryffindors, now would they?

True, but wouldn't every student and alumni have pride for the house they're in (or were once a part of in the case of alumni)? Gryffindors may have glory in their blood, but everyone has pride.

No. Just...no. That would just contradict the fact that there are 4 houses, of which all founders have their own glory. ;A;

So if every house has their pride and glory, are you saying that Gryffindor is biased to get most of it?

Gryffindor just gets most of the glory in the books/movies, yes. Harry Potter is in Gryffindor so its kind of obvious that its a bit biased.

I think it's more like more individuals from Gryffindor get the glory, and therefore collectively they are more glorified by others than the rest of the houses.

I should actually post here for once. :V
Yeah, it's more based off the individuals in Gryffindor. Especially Harry Potter. He WAS the Boy who Lived, so yeah. xD;

Before the events in the books, Slytherin always won the house cup though. So that proves the Harry Potter biased thing. xD

The House Cup isn't necessarily a matter of glory, though. I mean, it's not won by glorification. And the Slytherins weren't even really glorified after they won at all either, from how I understand it.

But it still contributes to the topic that it becomes biased to Gryffindor because of Harry Potter.

This is probably true, although that... was mostly Dumbledore's choice in the first book. Redeeming him in the eyes of his peers and all.
