Harry Potter Mania! Woo!
I can't wait to find out who dies in this book. The Sirius death in the last book? Pffaff! I couldn't care less. I couldn't stand the guy...I only wish he'd died a little more painfully. I mean, "Avada Kedavra" seems like a rather tame curse no? Especially when you can curse people into insanity or be bitten by a snake or whatever. Instead, we have Sirius receiving a bright green streak of light right into his chest. And he dies. No shrieks, no moans, no cries. I feel cheated.
And how hot is Bellatrix Lestrange? I mean, I must be the only person in the world who has the hots for the thouroughly evil female characters of our books and movies. I loved Evelyn from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, I love Bellatrix Lestrange, I even loved the Wicked Witch of the West!
At least so I thought...then I discovered Harry Potter fan fiction...and found I'm not the only one who dreams of being tied by my wrists to chains in a dark, dank Hogwarts dungeon with Bellatrix Lestrange (and her long dark hair, and heavy lidded eyes) playing around with my..umm..wand.
Ah well. Perhaps thoughts that shouldn't be shared on a public forum wot? Look for me under the pseudonym "Have wand. Will travel."
And also, while I'm on the topic (which I suppose should be called "Perverted reactions to an innocent children's book and the fantsay world created therin"), how many people have found the "wand" references in the books to be gratuitously sexual? Does J.K. Rowling chuckle into her 300$ civet-spoor coffee and wipe off the smirk with a 1000$ bill when she types in gems like "Harry started as a loud knock on his door disturbed him "I was only polishing my wand" he said".
Or my favourite. *The Weighing of the wands* in HP and the Goblet of Fire.
Talking about how long Cedric's wand is and how he polishes it every night...how Viktor's wand is not as long, but much thicker..
Maybe it's just that I need to get laid.
