No, not HP the big ol company that makes printers and computers and scanners, the other HP.
Yes I love the books.
Yes I love the movies.
And no there are no spoilers on this page about the final book or the newest movie. I have not read it. I have not seen it.
BUT, if you haven’t finished Half Blood Prince, or seen the other movies and you CARE and don’t want things spoiled for you, move along.
I am incredibly excited because I have a date with one of my dearest friends to go see the new movie on Friday. It will involve drinking, dining, drinking, watching the movie, eating popcorn, candy and some cherry coke, and then afterwards perhaps more drinking…
But despite all the drinking the important part of the evening is us going to see the new movie together. We saw the last one together, oohed and ahhed and then snarked… We have high hopes for this one.
But am I more excited about the new movie or the new book?
No question. No contest.
I am so excited about seeing the new movie with my friend, but I can not wait to read the new book.
Wait, no, I can wait to read it.
You see the new book is released the day I leave for California and rather than picking it up at our 24 hour grocery store on the way to the airport and spending the time I should be sleeping reading it on my trip and being too tired to be any fun I am going to wait and read it when I get home, so please, no spoiling it for me. Don’t tell me about it okay?
But I will tell you something, wanna know? The other day my cousin posted her thoughts on who is going to die. It’s been said that at least 2 characters will die. She thinks Harry has to be one of them. You can go see what she has to say on it… I’ll wait.
Ready? I think that if Harry has to die then the entire story has no point. Because I have always felt that she was saying that we can succeed beyond all odds. We don’t have to play the shitty hand we’re dealt to it’s inevitable dead end. We can stand up, make a difference. And while we may loose friends and foes along the way we can still live our lives and make our world proud.
Ever the optimist aren’t I?
That isn’t to say the losses won’t be stunning, painful, horrific.
I personally think that Snape will die. Some you are thinking that’s no loss, evil deatheatingsonofabitch and I am thinking, he just can’t be that evil.
I think at the end of Half Blood Prince he did what Dumbledore asked. He did what he wanted. He finished things with the only man who had ever put real faith in him. I do not think Dumbledore was wrong. I think that he would have given anything, even his own life to protect a child, even as one as wretched as Draco.
And I think that Harry will kill him. Snape that is. Full of vengeance and wrath and ill placed hatred Harry will kill one of his staunchest allies thinking he is so full of the evil Harry strives against.
And I think in the end we will find out that Harry was wrong. I think in the end there will be proof that Snape isn’t what Harry thought.
And I think that is what will dirty Harry’s soul.
oh and I’m thinking she has to off one of the Weasleys too. :(
