Deathly Hallows: Finished at last

Hand still out of commission but better. I took insanely long to type this up man... but i did it :) yayy me...

1. JKR at her sadistic worst (or best, whatever.) Especially when it comes to Harry. *feels disgusted* She's always loved to put him through hell. And this time it's just... man, I'm just glad she won't write any more HP because I can't stand to read of any more abuse she would think up of to subject the poor boy to.

2. Not a kiddie book anymore. Obviously JKR's writing had to age with age of not only her characters but her readers as well. There's love, there's forbidden love, and death and torture and dirty sex jokes, the works. Think twice before gifting this book to your little nieces and nephews. *facepalm*

3. I liked how she tied all loose strings up with several short but intriguing backstories. Snape's story was sad and touching. Voldie's story turned him out to be just as incompetent as I'd known he was from book 1. And Dumbledore actually had a past!?! It was good.. was really good.

4. There are not one but several social messages in the books - prejudice/violence against people different from us being the most prominent one clearly. And I greatly admire her for that. Touches a chord similar to the X-men. JKR also serves up her take on leadership, on friendship, on love, loyalty, death, all her female characters are pretty strong women... so basically everything under the sun. Another message that appeals to me a lot, is about the soul. How it carries on after death, and that death of a body is not the end of the soul.

5. Lots of action which is good. But too many, unnecessary deaths. She killed off every single one from the Marauders' batch. No survivors. The last chapter is such a commotion - so many things happening all at once.. that I'm not sure anymore if the werewolf got killed or not.. I hope he did.

6. No joy for Draco. The Malfoys were plenty humiliated and I guess that was expected anyway. So what if Draco's possibly the 4th most loved character (after the golden trio) in the entire online HP fandom? JKR never intended him to be loved so! *pouts* Guess should just be glad she had him continue to be the cowardly, conflicted lowlife he always was, and didn't turn him completely evil. I thought the Malfoys' concern for the safety of their son was subtle and yet grand. And Harry rescuing Draco was a dream come true although not nearly enough. *sighs* Thank God for fanfiction eh?

7. Yep, that's my final point. I liked the book overall. Am sorry the series is finally over. But I am happy and hopeful that this fandom will never ever be over on the internet. Fanfic's what I love most about Harry Potter :) Especially the H/D kind. So yeah... great book. Kudos to the genius author yaddi yadda. But personally, I'd take idamonae and enchanted_jae and jennavere and arrmaitee and samaelthekind over Ms Rowling any day. Any Damn day. Sorry guys, just needed to vent heh.

eeep! *shuts her eyes because of the spoilers* LOL I haven't read the book yet and to be honest I guess it will take maybe months before I can drag my busy ass to the library, heh.

So hand still being a pain? When you finally get the cast off I'm sure you're going to burst with ideas for fics and stories ;D

I actually wrote something, yes. In English!!!! 0_0 !!! (omg!! and I'm so nervous about it...) It just came out of nowhere ( a total PG-13 drabble) after I found out about this spn_ficathon and saw this one prompt there... Oh man.. I'm so going to embarrass myself but that's what keeps life interesting LOL!

I would have wanted you to beta it but I knew you couldn't because of your hand :( Good thing there was one helpfull so who agreed to do it. xD But I will write something (maybe) again and then I'm gonna make you do it, heheheh

So I can't read your ramble about the book yet, but was it as good as expected?

and I forgot to add... the thing I wrote was RPS!!!!! hahahaha (I'm so gone.....LOL) Well, first time for everything I guess...xD

OMG cool!! you wrote your first fanfic in english AND you wrote rps!?!?! :D Damn I would have loved to beta for you hon but that's okay.. your second fic? I get to read it first!! :D:D
Have you posted? It's not on your lj.. where can i find it? *is excited*

hand is much better now. not so painful and i'm getting better at typing left-handed hehe so yeah it's all good. but i'm still taking it easy 'cause i dont want to ruin my husband's dream vacation to china. still 2 weeks to go for that.

Girl read the damn book already so we can discuss! :) Are you a Draco fan? We might have A LOT to discuss if you are :P

hehehe.. yeah.. I'm so nervous about it thought... I just had this "It't 2.00am and I'm high on sugar and heee! I'm going to write a fic in english! Yeah. That sounds like a good idea...hmmm.. Let's make it crack!" - moment...

*shakes her head* OMG... it is a weird one...and there's no actual porn in it so....huh... LOL

And I was thinking of writing something angsty the next time I have time. And maybe SPN this time.. Just don't know what it will be... But after that crack I feel like it has to be sad and angsty Heh,heh.. So if I have some time in the near future I guess I could write something even if it is a 200 word drabble.... (But still the broken vocabulary is something that bother me and sometimes makes me frustrated, but I'm just going to write the way I can...) ;)

Oh, and you can't read it yet.. Sorry! I haven't posted it because I wrote it for this spn_ficathon and the posting date hasn't been announced yet.. ;D But I guess we can start posting after July 29th...( I guess...)

Oh, yes. I am a Draco fan :D :D :D "The dark side" is always more interesting, though I think Draco isn't so into the "family business" as some might think... (Just my guess...) Oh... I guess I have to go to the library and try and get some copy of it to read LOL

And China!!!!!!???? Not fair! ;D I want to travel too :D

crack has its moments :p but i do believe i'm a softy for angsty stuff so yayyy :) okay *sighs heavily* i shall wait patiently for the damn ficathon reveal ;-p

But still the broken vocabulary is something that bother me and sometimes makes me frustrated, but I'm just going to write the way I can
that's what i've been telling ya babe! your english is very very good! the few mistakes you make, i think everyone does the first time and that's why we go over it again and again or use betas. its perfectly normal :)

The dark side" is always more interesting, though I think Draco isn't so into the "family business" as some might think... (Just my guess...) Oh... I guess I have to go to the library and try and get some copy of it to read LOL
you're almost right ;-) his motivations for working the dark side aren't *purely* evil, but i won't say more, do read and find out :)

yeah china :D and tibet too :P yep i'm rubbing it in haha. nah i'm kidding ;) my husband's been planning this for 3 yrs now.. fingers crossed (left hand of course not right :P) that everything goes well. i'm a worry wart when it comes to travelling heh.

Yeah, you just have to wait xD! Also for the time when I'm not too busy to write something again. It would be nice to just write and try to get better at it, but no, there's real life heh! (and that usually makes it so that what I do write , I write in a short span of time and instead I would love to work on those stories without the rush) *shrug* but that's life.. XD

huaah... I went to the local library and they had the waitinglist for the book and it was like 9 ppl before me (even more for other copies of it). Damn! xD Well good comes to those who wait, and maybe they will read them quickly. ;/

Tibet too!!!!!NOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! 0_0 You understand that you have to take loads of photos and then post them here so we all can see ;D... (ooo..mountains...)

And I'm sure everything will go well :D

I'm glad your hand is feeling a little bit better.

thanks hon :) yeah it's better. or i'm just getting more ambidextrous haha

Can I go on and on about DH too? Yay, another fan!!

**********SPOILERS*****************

I loved the book, my goodness, especially the Snape/Lily part (cried and cried and said I knew it at least a hundred times).

By werewolf do you mean Fenrir? Yes he is dead, unfortunately so is my favorite werewolf ever, Remus (sad!)...I believe there were 16 deaths in all as far as characters go?? I forget, but man it was a lot.

I didn't care for the epilogue at all really, would have preffered a chapter of grieving, especially with the Weasley family, you know? That death was my least favorite. I expected Snape, Remus...Most of the others, but not that one.

And how about Mrs Weasley?? That rocked!!!!

And I like that some of the baddies were in the end, not all that bad, I really liked Narcissa's turn and how she helped Harry even that little bit to help her son. Oh and of course, Dudley...That brought on the tears too!

But yeah, thank God for fan fic!! I am a Remus/Sirius, Remus/Lily, Remus/Tonks (haha, can you tell I like him?), Remus/Bill shipper as well as a Snape/Lily shipper, I have always loved them together!!!! And now that it is completely canon and, gasp, forbidden, oh yeah, bring it on!!!!

Haha I see you really enjoyed DH!! :) It's what this post is for hon.. to ramble away about DH to our heart's content :D

I did mean Fenrir yeah, glad to know he's dead, that was one mean werewolf *shudder*. But yeah I liked Remus too... not in the way you do obviously :P I sort of only read Harry/Draco in this fandom.
Thought the Snape/Lily part was really well done. So you already knew that was about to happen huh? :D Pretty intuitive I'd say.. I never kinda paid attention to het stuff maybe that's why I missed it? *shrugs*

I didn't care for the epilogue at all really, would have prefered a chapter of grieving, especially with the Weasley family, you know? That death was my least favorite.

Ditto! I hated the epilogue. It felt forced and unrealistic, and personally i would have loved to know what happened in the interim of those 19 years. Who became what - did Harry become auror? minister? Who else is teaching at Hogwarts, what did they do with the dementors.. so many questions unanswered! But i guess that's what fanfic is for eh? :D And yeah, Fred dying was totally uncalled for :( Would have been nice to know how George coped without his twin through the years.

Molly TOTALLY rocked!! I loved that part :)

I really liked Narcissa's turn and how she helped Harry even that little bit to help her son. Oh and of course, Dudley...That brought on the tears too!

Girl you're a weeper :P:P Hehe I'm kidding.. think i cried only for Dobby.. that part was so beautifully angsty. And you know Narcissa wasn't really helping Harry. She was only looking to get to her son and that's kinda sweet in itself no? :)

Harry named his kid after Severus! How brilliant is that? :)
