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.


I know! If it were a fanfic, I'd say it was like those old The Sentinel smarm stories, where Jim would angst over his feelings for Blair but also ogle girls as a Statement of Heterosexuality. See, Harry's all over Ginny even though he's obsessing over Draco and Tom Riddle. So he's straight.

Or just really, really, really confused.

While Harry may be all over Ginny, he is completely ignoring every other available female in existence, despite all the ones apparently fawning over him. Now, he could just be incredibly monogamous or something, but I have a hard time thinking that a 16-year-old boy wouldn't at least *think* about taking up one of those girls on their offers. He was always brushing them off and completely unaffected by them. He may not be gay, but I bet he's bi.

It's more than just the random girls at Hogwarts.

It's also Fleur. He's a bit bowled over when she first shows up, but he gets distracted by breakfast. Ron, on the other hand, never stops being affected by her.

Which is about the same thing that happened with first the Veelas and then with Fleur in GoF. He gets affected on first meeting and then it goes away, never to return.
