Harry Potter

by J. K. Rowling (Joane Kathleen Rowling)

This books are great! At first I thought they sounded kind of weird, but when I bought one I thought it was really good. It is about a boy named Harry Potter who is adopted by his horible aunt and uncle and he can do really strange things. Then a mystical letter arives and soon after that he learns he is a wizard! Read all of the books of Harry Potter to find out about all his adventures at Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry while he battles with the altimate dark lord. My favorite one of these books is Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Askaban book 3.

Hmm... I also thought the dragon/s in the Bible were figurative?

um that was me mentioning it. And sorry i kinda worded it wrong. In the Bible the dinosaurs were called Behomith, or something like that. And the LochNess "monster" IS probably a water dinosaur.And what do mean about a PROPHECY?

In Revelation, it says something about a dragonish thing doing something at the end of the world, I think. I forgot the exact passage, though.

I'm sorry about all the yelling... I wasn't in a very good mood... And behemoth doesn't mean dragon/dinosaur, it means huge creature - which could be anything.

As for what I meant about a prophecy, well, the Bible has prophecies in it. I guess the word 'prophecy' does often put one in mind of a fantasy story... I probably shouldn't use it in reference to the Bible anymore. But the Blible does call people who speak them 'prophets'. The only time the Bible uses the word 'dragon' is in the Revalation. Revelation describes a vision Paul had of the future. However, since it was a vision (and hasn't happened yet), many of the things in it might well be figurative. You never know. Whether dragons are/were real or not, the Bible doesn't say.

In my ideal ending, Lupin would be alive, Snape would be alive, Tonks would probably be dead, Fred would be alive, and Bellatrix would be alive. I don't like her, but I like her too. (pehaps, like TNO said, it is because she is so awesoooooooome. :)

In my ending of the last HP book this is what would happen:

Tonks would live, but recieve a deep gash on her wand arm from Bellatrix.

Remus would get a awful wound down his side, and another down his shoulder to his wrist. Which are most likely to take his life.

Percy would probably die, just to have more drama and tears. Like Mrs. Weasly crying like crazy about never clearing up the problem between them before he died.

And Snape would be in a duel with Voldy over the elder wand. He would get a fatal wound, and just before he thought he was about to die, he gives his memory to Harry. Harry runs up to the castloe to look at the memory, while Hermione and Ron stay behind. Hermione cures then Snape comes back to fight on the good side, and Harry would punch him straight in the face and say "WHY DIDN"T YOU TELL ME YOU IDIOT!!!!!??!!!!!!" referring to the memory and how he felt about Lily Potter, and Dumbledore's planned death.

Colin would still die to make it more sad.

Sirius would still die.

And when Molly and Bellatrix were dueling everyone was real quiet, and then when Molly killed her, everyone started to applaud and whooped.

I thought the ending was perfect as is, except that Percy should've died instead of Fred (agreed with Ima on that one) and someone other than Molly should've killed Bellatrix. Logically, Molly should never have had a chance in a duel like that. Snape's death could've been a bit more dramatic, I guess, but was fine on the whole.

Why all the Percy!hate? I liked Percy; he was a stubborn prat but at least he had the courage to admit it in the end.

I agree about Molly. I mean, for one thing she was furious, so Bellatrix would've had the advantage there... For another, earlier in the book Bellatrix took out three armed wizards (one of them a werewolf) single-handedly in about thirty seconds.

Molly should've been toast.

Heh Heh, oops sorry that was me. I didn't mean to put Luna L. in the name part of the "form" I guess I just had Luna on the brain! :) You should see my binder! I taped on all the Luna pictures I could get my hands on! I even made little signs to go on it that say: pick your own Misttletoe! and: keep off the dirigible plums. Me my sisters and some friends are going to have a Harry Potter party on Saturday!!! I'm so excited. First we are going to see the movie (for the second time!) Then we are going to have pbandj in cauldron cutouts, and crisps (chips) and spice tea for butterbeer, and orange koolaid for pumpkin juice! then we'll have snacks at thier house. I think their making cockroah clusters, and pumpkin pasties and other things too. I'M SO EXCITED!

Tell us about it! It sounds fun! Sadly, I am just about the only HP obsessed person I know right now, and so I would love to have some people to do that with...

In reply to everyone who wanted to know how the HP party turned out. IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!

But it didn't turn out ALL the way it was planned. But I won't get into the details right now. The day before the party we went to their house and played the Harry Potter Wii. Which ROCKED. And then we played a Medievel themed game. But then we quit when it got too wierd. Then we played the Harry Potter quote game. (Thanks to whoever came up with the game on Cricket). Then it was time to go. So that was like the Pre-party.

The party was at our house. They brought the snacks over and we had lunch. Which included: Carrot wands, radishes, plums (for the dirigible plums), grape snitches, PB&J cutouts, orange koolaid, "frilled out" green onioin quills with ranch disappearing ink. Me my sisters and a friend came up with naming foods from Harry Potter characters:

The Weasleys: Tomatoes (Percy is a rotten tomato).

Harry: Cucumber( I don't really know why though).

Hermione: Pomegranite(They are supposed to make you smarter).

Hagrid: Pineapple.

Madame Maxime: Watermelon.

Fleur: Lemon.

Tonks: Mango( they have different colors on them, and Tonks can change the color of her hair).

Remus Lupin: Bacon.

Teddy: An egg (You can eat eggs with bacon and you can also color eggs(get it)?

So we had cucumbers, eggs, mangoes, and that's it. Then we went and saw the movie. It was as AWESOME as the first time! Now I'm trying to type the script from memory.

I would have killed Bellatrix.  I LOVED the way she died!  And after she almost killed Ginny, she SO deserved to be cursed by Mrs. Weasley!  I don't think Fred, Lupin, or Tonks should have died, but I do think Snape should have.  It just seemed right (even though it was really sad) for him to die.  


The one person I really don't think should have died is Dobby.  I bawled my eyes out during his death!
