Thoughts - random and spoilerish.



I got the book this morning at 8:48AM. I ran downstairs in a nightshirt, an inside-out skirt and a snood, which was better than my husband's baseball cap. I carefully opened the package so as to avoid tearing any letters, and I read until I finished at 2:35PM.

So. First and foremost.

Severus Snape is NOT a traitor or a murderer. He did exactly as Dumbledore wanted him to do. And I refuse to hear or believe anything else. The other choices were unacceptable - either Draco becomes a murderer or Snape dies, due to that oath he took. Which Dumbledore was fully aware of. I don't think Dumbledore expected to survive that night.

This also makes Snape more valuable to the Order as he goes deeper undercover.

The book was much better than OotP. It was tighter, it was impossible to put down and there were no boring parts. And it had me laughing and had me crying. Oh, goodness. Madam Bones! That hit me hard and fast, you know?

And I'm going to say right now that I am so jealous of the shippers. Because at least some of you got your ships. And while my own OTP isn't quite ruined, it's been made much more difficult - Harry is still fascinated by Malfoy, enough that he forgets even Ginny. So.

And I can even rationalize Remus/Tonks by saying it doesn't preclude Sirius at all. Even if I really don't like it.

But I'll never see my OTPs. And, well. Life isn't fair, is it? :)

And my whole house-elf theory? Shot to pieces. Also, my current fic? More thoroughly jossed than I could have ever imagined, but I'm still writing it. I hope someone reads it when I'm done.

Comments

Agreed.

And I think Harry will hate Snape all the more for it when that seed of doubt gets planted, because Harry already very much dislikes himself for having made Dumbledore drink the potion needlessly.

Harry already hates himself.

This is what we need. A suicidal, homicidal teenager and his best buddies going on a Quest.

Which actually, yeah, sounds pretty good.

Throwing the Locket of Salazar Slytherin into a volcano? *grin*

I am looking forward with great enthusiasm.
