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.


It did. Oh, goodness, it did.

He didn't leave a note, but the portrait knows. A

Draco isn't a killer. He's a pampered spoiled little boy who doesn't want to kill, and who doesn't have to do it.

Harry's a killer. He needs to be one.

Draco isn't a killer. He's a pampered spoiled little boy who doesn't want to kill, and who doesn't have to do it.

Pampered, yes. Spoiled, yes. Doesn't want to? Maybe. More like "can't" -- which we've known all along. Draco is a typical bully, who can't cut it when it comes down to reality.

Tom Riddle, Jr. and Snape, as well as Harry and Dumbledore, have what it takes.

Let's agree to disagree on Severus' motives. And on whether, or if, Harry and Ginny, ultimately, will be smart enough not to let something as trivial as the fate of the world get between them :-)

Me, I'm smirking just a little at the desperate H/Hr crowd, especially those who boo-yahed at the R/Hr sorts. I don't wish them ill, but there's a teeny bit of me that really wants to say "I told you so."
