My basket-case-ness started at the end of OotP, stopped through the first part of HBP, resumed at the end of HBP, and remained in full force throughout all of DH. With a little bit of it at the end of GoF. It was sad okay even though Cedric wasn't a major character and I'm a Hufflepuff okay;____; omg that was really the start
Spoiler:
of all the deaths
wasn't it ;____________________; lol spoilered in the absurd case that someone hasn't read GoF

I can't believe that the last book was released in 2007. was it really that long ago jesus

Frasier is spectacular, I watched it constantly as a kid and am in fact watching it right now XD

When I read most of the series, I was reeeally stoic because as a tomboy I felt it was my duty to not cry at things. That... had kind of changed by the time DH came out so I was a wibbly mess the WHOLE TIME I WAS READING IT and I was so confused because the series had never done that to me before. XD I guess I also cried at Dumbledore but that was the very end of the book and it was totally unexpected for me so I didn't mind it that much. @_@ But omg. DH. /baaaw

I remember having to read DH veeery carefully because the day it came out was the day my university had an open house and I wanted to go to it before I came here in the fall. But despite staying up all night, I hadn't finished reading the book so I took it with me and read it during all the presentations. Had a fangirly discussion with one of the profs helping out while I was reading it. XD; (omg that was like 5 years ago and i'm not even close to done my degree what am i doing with my life aaaah)

Frasier is awesome. The Crane brothers are so Ravenclaw it hurts. Hi, my name is Erica and I spend my free time figuring out what houses fictional characters would be in.

hun we've already done wall of text in the SE fanclub let's try to control ourselves here DX

I cried most over OotP, because if you haven't figured this out yet
Spoiler:
sirius is my favorite ;___;
Seriously do we have to spoiler tag this stuff? Idk because I'm sure there's someone on earth who hasn't read OotP. But also DH asdfjkl that was just one big bawl-fest.
Spoiler:
FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED ASLD:KFJDS:LKFJSDLFJ ;___________________; and HEDWIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG KLSDFJSD:LGHSDLKFHGKLSDFJSLKG ;_____________; and DOBBYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY JSLKDGJSD:HLKFHDSLGKSDFJK ;__________; AND LUPINNNNNNNN AND TONKSSSSSSSSSSSSS SJKLDFHSD:LKSKLFSDHGL:KSFJD ;_____; lupin especially since I loved the marauders except for peter, funnily enough and at the end of DH they're all dead ;___; I hate peter


I've always pictured Ravenclaws as a big bunch of nerds. and I mean that in the good way XD so yes, the Crane brothers would fit in very nicely. off topic but omg I was watching that one episode the other day where Frasier wouldn't pay the toll booth man or whatever and Niles had a birdcage on his lap for whatever reason and Frasier goes "Hold on, Niles." AND PLOWS STRAIGHT THROUGH THE TOLL BOOTH GATE SDKLF:JKDFJ I WAS DYING

okay not even close to my normal sheer walls of text thank god DX

I AM USUALLY PRETTY GOOD ABOUT THAT IN THIS CLUB. Mind you, I used to be really good about that in the KH club too. :(

I think the only spoiler tags needed here would just be for new content in the series. Like details about DH2 were spoiler'd last summer, Pottermore got spoilers for a while, and so on. XD; Book content should be fine, honestly.

I liked Sirius too but I uhh... when I read the book, I was speed reading it in one night and I didn't make the connection that he had died until people were yelling it at Harry trying to make him accept it. I DIDN'T THINK FALLING INTO A CURTAIN WAS DEADLY, OKAY? OTL So the sadness of his death was kind of lost on me because it seemed so ambiguous while I was reading it. :(

They also have the pompous thing that a lot of Ravenclaws have going on. Seriously, my welcome letter was entirely "YEAH WE'RE BETTER THAN THE OTHERS BECAUSE REASONS. GOODNESS, WE ARE SO SMART."

The books don't make me cry at all anymore. I used to cry during Order of the Phoenix, the end of Half-Blood Prince, and in Deathly Hallows, but I re-read it them other month and nothing. The movies, though, they still get me. All of them! I think it has to do with nostalgia or something. I'm still trying to decide if that's bad of me as a fan.

No, I had read the first four before the first movie even came out. :P
I don't really know why. Maybe it's the music? *shrug*

Maybe.

I only find the end of HBP, the end of DH, and ALL OF DH2 to be sad movie-wise so I dunno. :( I know it greatly has to do with the music in DH2 but also just knowing that it was the end. I saw DH2 in theatres like 4 times and I think I cried through most of the movie every. single. time.

Do we need to start a Frasier fan club? XD

I didn't find the end of the HBP movie sad at all; and that made me angry. Dumbledore was dead and I was a mess all through the end of that book, yet in the movie I didn't feel a thing. They borked the ending of that movie so badly that it still makes me angry to watch. Which is a shame because the rest of that movie was amazing lol.

I found a lot of DH1 and all of DH2 soul-crushingly sad (I went and saw it 5 times at the movies and cried right through, as well as getting this feeling like I'd been kicked in the stomach each time Snape said "Always"). But beyond that the only part in the movies that moved me to tears (of sadness) was that moment at the end of the Goblet of Fire when Harry had brought Cedric's body back to the edge of the maze and you felt that tone shift from cheer and excitement to "ohhhhh ****" in the crowd. Oddly, Cedric's father didn't really have an effect on me, it was just that energy shift.

I absolutely cannot stand Snape so I don't really feel a thing for any of his scenes ever. I... I might have been cracking jokes the second and third times I saw DH2 during his death scene. (One of the Gryffindors lost their scarf in the boat house. You can see it in the background. Every time Harry runs in after Voldemort's gone, I substitute whatever he says with, "hey, that's where my scarf went!") *horrible person*

But yeah, I tear up at everything during the beginning of DH2 and the moment they get back to Hogwarts and all through the final battle I'm pretty much openly crying. XD;

i mean really jkr you killed him with a curtain. the man survives thirteen years in azkaban and you kill him with a curtain. and then Harry was all upset and throwing stuff in Dumbledore's office and I was like "KSLDGHSD:LFKSDHGSKLFJ:SL SWEETHEART ;____;"

okay are we like twins or something because this is entirely me omg.

I always found Snape extremely disturbing and creepy. Well, firstly, he is a grown man and he bullies schoolchildren, for christ's sake, and then it comes out that he hated James Potter with the passion of a thousand burning suns which is entirely reasonable, given the way James treated him but what isn't reasonable is that he takes it out on poor Harry, who had absolutely nothing to do with it omg and then in PoA when they're all in the Shrieking Shack he wasn't even willing to hear any of them out he was basically going "hahahahah I caught you, I caught you! Now the lot of you will go to prison and I'll be revered for it, lalalalala~" and he was so happy about sending an innocent man back to Azkaban Now I know he was supposedly so happy about this because he thought Sirius had betrayed Lily. But Sirius didn't, so he did not deserve to have his soul sucked out, no matter how badly he treated Snape in school and then he goes absolutely bonkers when Sirius escapes and immediately suspects Harry which is correct, Harry did help Sirius escape BUT THIS WAS A GOOD THING, OKAY. Snape you are a grown man GET OVER IT ALREADY and he busts in the hospital wing like the Kool-Aid man and goes mental omg.

and then theeeeeeeeeen in DH he's all in love with Lily and I mean I really can't see how this would work he never listened to her she basically told him that she was not impressed by the Death Eaters and he keeps trying to be a Death Eater to impress her. I mean really man? The only thing that I respect him for is helping to protect Harry for Lily. but it still creeps me out this love of his is sort of obsessive omg. The "Always." thing is sort of cute though.

god stopping myself there or I will turn this into another wall of text fanclub

and omgomg lily's theme from DH2 makes me have so many feelings omg

OKOKOK. I understand dislike of Snape considering the way he acted for most of the story, but... THOSE SCENES IN THE PENSIEVE SHOWED YOU WHY HE WAS THE WAY HE WAS AND HE HAD BEEN PROTECTING HARRY BECAUSE HE WAS STILL IN LOVE WITH HIS DEAD MOTHER HOW CAN YOU FEEL NOTHING ABOUT THAT YOU MONSTERS ;;

I will admit though, I did laugh at Snape's death scene the second time I saw it - not the part where Nagini killed him, but his conversation with Voldemort earlier in the scene. Because it hit me that throughout that entire scene, Voldemort had the derp face on. I could not take him seriously lmao.

Also look guys I made the club purty!
Well actually I think it looks boring as hell but I did my best

Snape is amazing don't go there! ;_; I kind of wish there was a prequel/something with Snape as the main character, that might boost everyone's opinion of him as a character. Or maybe some bonus material on him on Pottermore, I'm sure there will be lots.

Speaking of which... are they ever going to finish Pottermore? At least the 2nd book's content would be good ><

I don't really have anything to add to this except a slow clap that turns into standing applause and a salute.

Well, okay, I will add that nowadays I don't mind so much that Snape wasn't listening to them in the Shrieking Shack because he did think Sirius was an insane killer who was looking to kill Harry. And Harry, for as much as I love him, is kind of dumb so he would probably believe anything Sirius said and let his guard down, whether it was the right thing to do or not. XD; Snape's disregard for their opinions/objections infuriated me when I was younger but I can't tooootally fault him for it now. u_u

Except his definition of "protect Harry" is "be a total dick to him and yeah I guess save his life a lot but always look like the bad guy to him anyway and then with your dying breath, tell him how obsessed you were with his mom for the last 30 years". Ack.

It's "Statues" that always gets me the worst. It's a really epic song but it's just so powerful to me and evokes so many different emotions that I become a mess when I listen to it, she says, opening Winamp and playing the song because she's apparently a masochist.

Uhh... see above for why I can't take his Harry Protective Services very seriously. :( Also, holding onto unrequited love for 30 years is not romantic or brave to me, it's just sad. (I'm sorry, I don't mean to be so blunt or insulting. ;_;) He had a looot of issues and it makes me more sad that he was never able to work through them or get over her than it does that he was so "loyal" all those years. No. If he was loyal and truly respected Lily, then he would also respect that she married someone else that she loved and he would not bully her only child just because he looked like the man she chose over him. His character is pretty much irredeemable to me.

But... he had a whole chapter devoted to explaining his backstory and it worked well enough to redeem him for most people. :/ I don't think fleshing that out even more would ever change my opinion of him because his ends don't justify the means. u_u

I think they've said that CoS stuff is coming in the next month or so. I don't think it's going to be too long from now. Or I hope it isn't, anyway.

Why thank you hun. -bows- I've been wanting to say all of that about Snape for years but of course everyone looooooves him. I mean, like I said, I think it was very brave of him to turn spy for the Order because he felt so bad about getting Lily killed but that is his only redeeming quality as far as I am concerned. Harry is a bit thick, isn't he? The poor dear, I still love him <3

Sirius? Insane? NOOOOOO. I'd never have guessed! XD but yeah Sirius did not do very much to convince anyone of his innocence in PoA. He was chanting "He's at Hogwarts." in his sleep, he slashed up the Fat Lady attempting to break into Gryffindor Tower, he actually broke into Gryffindor Tower and was standing over a thirteen-year-old boy with a knife, sirius hun what were you thinking omg and he pretty much stalks Harry for the entire year. though he was probably trying to make sure peter didn't try anything and I thought Sirius coming to watch Harry play Quidditch was adorable okay

Buuuuuut he still protected him! He was a complete and utter dick to him, but at leaaaaaaast he was protected! look I am trying so hard to find something good about this character omg erica my brain is hurting

Ummm...yeah. This is pretty much entirely me. -slow clap, applause, all that jazz- I really do feel sorry for Snape yeah because I'm so sure he would take pity so well. we'd probably all be dead right now DX. And yesssss @the stuff about him respecting her choice about choosing James. Harry was living proof that Lily loved another man. Snape just couldn't accept that and tormented Harry for it. lol @ harry protective services

I HAVE LOTS OF OPINIONS OKAY. I APOLOGIZE IF THEY OFFEND YOU THEY ARE RAMBUNCTIOUS LITTLE RASCALS ;_______; idk about Pottermore. I found a blog on Tumblr that has all of the ~exclusive content omg~ so I just read all of it from there lol. It seems like they're having problems releasing Pottermore to the public-isn't it still locked off to anyone that didn't get in as a beta tester? I really don't know, the last time I heard anything about it it was still locked off to the public please excuse my ignorance omg

:O crap! That was totally not intentional; I must have forgotten them! Luckily I remember who they were, I shall put them back in later haha.

I do understand this, and that's why I think it was so geniusly done. Throughout the books all anybody ever said to Harry was "You look just like your father. Except your eyes, you have your mother's eyes." So Snape was duty-bound by his love for Lily to protect Harry, but at the same time he hated Harry because Harry looked and acted so much like James... the man who he essentially feels stole Lily from him. I think I would have been a total dick to him too, if that were the situation. And then as Snape was dying (in the movie... I can't remember if it was the same in the book) the last thing he said to Harry was "you have your mother's eyes", which was the kindest thing he'd ever said. Just aaaaaaaa I'm almost getting choked up just thinking about it ;;

He was chanting "He's at Hogwarts." in his sleep, he slashed up the Fat Lady attempting to break into Gryffindor Tower, he actually broke into Gryffindor Tower and was standing over a thirteen-year-old boy with a knife, sirius hun what were you thinking omg and he pretty much stalks Harry for the entire year. though he was probably trying to make sure peter didn't try anything and I thought Sirius coming to watch Harry play Quidditch was adorable okay
Yeah, being a spy for the Order was pretty bad ass and that's always why I want to think everyone loves him but it's not so it's very confusing. (It's the only reason I have any sort of affection (for lack of a better word) for him. @_@

lmao sirius logic. ;_;' I guess to be fair, even Hagrid who'd only been in Azkaban for like a month went a bit nuts from it. And then look at Bellatrix. I think Sirius has every excuse to be crazy. XD;

Ummm...yeah. This is pretty much entirely me. -slow clap, applause, all that jazz- I really do feel sorry for Snape yeah because I'm so sure he would take pity so well. we'd probably all be dead right now DX. And yesssss @the stuff about him respecting her choice about choosing James. Harry was living proof that Lily loved another man. Snape just couldn't accept that and tormented Harry for it. lol @ harry protective services
I feel sorry for him because he did have a crappy life but that doesn't excuse his decisions and actions. :(

it could be an alternate name for the Order of the Phoenix, really.

HAVE LOTS OF OPINIONS OKAY. I APOLOGIZE IF THEY OFFEND YOU THEY ARE RAMBUNCTIOUS LITTLE RASCALS ;_______; idk about Pottermore. I found a blog on Tumblr that has all of the ~exclusive content omg~ so I just read all of it from there lol. It seems like they're having problems releasing Pottermore to the public-isn't it still locked off to anyone that didn't get in as a beta tester? I really don't know, the last time I heard anything about it it was still locked off to the public please excuse my ignorance omg
Noo it's open to the public now. It's still in beta, but anyone can sign up. (They might still be queuing registration so it takes a few hours to get your welcome email but it's definitely open now.) People are just whining because they're in, they've done everything available, and now they have to wait with everyone else for the other books to come along. xD;

I think I would have been a total dick to him too, if that were the situation. And then as Snape was dying (in the movie... I can't remember if it was the same in the book) the last thing he said to Harry was "you have your mother's eyes", which was the kindest thing he'd ever said. Just aaaaaaaa I'm almost getting choked up just thinking about it ;;
...you would terrorize and (emotionally? can't think of the right word) abuse a child/teen just because the person you can't get over started a life with someone you didn't like.

*edges away* :(

But uhh... yeah. I don't think hating James is a good enough reason for how Snape acted throughout the books from Harry's POV. Obviously there's bias there since Harry didn't like Snape to begin with but that's Snape's fault anyway. Of course the boy's not gonna like you if you pick on him from day one and do nothing but constantly glare at him from the moment you saw him. And honestly, talking about Harry's dead mother and how much he loved her and then telling Harry that he reminds Snape of her just creeps me the heck out. XD;

Snape did the right thing in the end, and he was on the right side, but it's always felt like he did it for the wrong reasons to me.

This would have been a much better moment if, at the time, I wasn't thinking.

Well I think 'terrorise' and 'abuse' are a little strong for the kind of things Snape did lol - but in any case his character wouldn't have been nearly as interesting if he had not been surly toward Harry. If he had had the strength to put the past behind him and be nice to Harry (or anybody for that matter - lets not forget that while he did single Harry out, he was not particularly pleasant toward anyone), then his loyalty to the Order would have been compromised, because clearly his love for Lily would not have been strong enough to galvanise him to fight on the side of good. His moral compass independent of that could not really be trusted, judging by the fact that he chose to be a Death Eater in the first place.

Also had he been less 'abusive', the revelations about him that came up in the last two books would not have been nearly as fascinating. He would have been basically Lupin 2.0 - a man with a dark past who overcame his demons and now fights on the side of good. Any interesting cast of characters needs to have light and shade... I see Snape as the shade

LOL. I did notice that through the movies. Harry's eyes were never particularly green, and they never made an effort to make them so. Right now, looking at the cover of my Philosopher's Stone DVD, his eyes are the most shockingly bright blue I have ever seen on any kid. The Chamber of Secrets DVD photoshopped them green, but for the emphasis that is put on his eye colour during the course of the books, they sure put in a half-assed effort of it in the movies XD

Erm. HE WAS NEVILLE'S BOGGART. Meaning out of everything Neville could've been frightened of, Snape was the thing he was most frightened of. I don't think students aren't supposed to fear their teachers quite this much. So at the very least, he terrorized Neville. Though I think this was because if Voldemort had chosen to go after Neville and his parents, Lily would still be alive. Now, if that would've happened, though, Bellatrix might've tortured Lily and James into insanity in place of Alice and Frank. So either way, Lily was most likely doomed, and Neville, like Harry, had absolutely nothing to do with it.

And really, the fact that he doesn't even make the effort to be nice to anyone doesn't improve his character to me. Snape is most definitely in the 'gray' area, as far as I'm concerned. I can't call him a villain, after Lily's death, of course. Before Lily's death, I'm quite convinced he was a villain. and I most certainly can't call him a hero. He's an interesting character, but not a pleasant character.

and then there's this

“‘Please, sir,’ said Hermione, whose hand was still in the air, ‘the werewolf differs from the true wolf in several small ways. The snout of the werewolf - ‘
‘That is the second time you have spoken out of turn, Miss Granger,’ said Snape coolly. ‘Five more points from Gryffindor for being an insufferable know-it-all.’”

—PoA

I mean really snape? Really? You have to resort to name-calling like a child? Really?

and then there's this. spoilered because it's kind of long
Spoiler:
"'Jets of light shot from both wands, hit each other in midair, and ricocheted off at angles—Harry's hit Goyle in the face, and Malfoy's hit Hermione. Goyle bellowed and put his hands to his nose, where great ugly boils were springing up-Hermione, whimpering in panic, was clutching her mouth.

"Hermione!"
Ron had hurried forward to see what was wrong with her; Harry turned and saw Ron dragging Hermione's hand away from her face. It wasn't a pretty sight. Hermione's front teeth-already larger than average—were now growing at an alarming rate; she was looking more and more like a beaver as her teeth elongated, past her bottom lip, toward her chin— panic-stricken, she felt them and let out a terrified cry.

"And what is all this noise about?" said a soft, deadly voice.
Snape had arrived. The Slytherins clamored to give their explanations; Snape pointed a long yellow finger at Malfoy and said, "Explain."

"Potter attacked me, sir—"
"We attacked each other at the same time!" Harry shouted.
"and he hit Goyle—look—"
Snape examined Goyle, whose face now resembled something that would have been at home in a book on poisonous fungi.
"Hospital wing, Goyle," Snape said calmly.

"Malfoy got Hermione!" Ron said. "Look!"
He forced Hermione to show Snape her teeth—she was doing her best to hide them with her hands, though this was difficult as they had now grown down past her collar. Pansy Parkinson and the other Slytherin girls were doubled up with silent giggles, pointing at Hermione from behind Snape's back.

Snape looked coldly at Hermione, then said, "I see no difference"".

—GoF


This. I just asdfjkl this made me rage so much as a kid. I mean how dare he say something like that to a student. It still makes me angry every time I read it. God. it probably doesn't help that I love hermione omg and Snape just seems to go out of his way to pick on her, the jerk. D:<

again my opinions are rambunctious little rascals and I hope I explained all this clearly. D8

omg I know like seriously they didn't even bother to make Lily's eyes blue. (since dan is allergic to contacts or whatever and thus in movie canon harry's eyes are blue and not green i guess. They kind of gave up on even making them look green after CoS) THAT'S LIKE THE WHOLE POINT OF SNAPE, ISN'T IT? Like the only reason he would have any sort of affection towards Harry (lol) is because he has his mother's eyes. but then in the movies...they don't have the same eyes. Nice.

Well yeah, as I said he was an unpleasant character. He was bitter and didn't care much for the world and that made him easy to hate, but he was easily one of the most interesting characters and I look for that over general niceness any day. I think the fact that he ended up being on the side of good and the reasons for that made me love him, because before that I was hating him right alongside you. I don't think it's pathetic for him to have pined for Lily for that long, either. But maybe I'm just a hopeless romantic

Anyway, I don't think anybody is going to change anybody's mind on this haha - I get why people hate Snape.

If anybody ever says anything bad about McGonagall, however... well, you don't want to face me then.

Can't say anything about her new book except that it sounds like what you see on Barnes & Noble shelves nowadays. Not that it's wrong. I'm curious to see what it is.

Typical JKR name for a fictional character though. It's like a random wizard who never made it to the books so she's using it for this book.

JKR and Sony have partnered up for a new PS Move game called "Book of Spells" at today's E3 conference.

It's connected to Pottermore since that is partnered with Sony.

Okay. You have to let me join this. I LOVE Harry Potter.

I want to be in Ravenclaw.

My wand is holly, phoenix, 10 inches.

The rat turned purple.

And Sakura Rain, you are my Sirius fandom buddy lol. He's my favorite character, I don't care how weird he is.

If I start discussing my clearly insane theories that the Veil is a portal to another dimension....feel free to tell me to shut up. XDDDDD


And has anyone mentioned the weird fact that the Marauders all died in reverse order of their names on the Map.
Bet she planned that, lol.
