    Won't be a book section without a thread on Potter. Come one, come all. Discuss all things Potter!

    :lmao: That is the greatest line ever. Mrs. Weasley is bad ass. That whole chapter is bad ass.

    I know a lot of people were disappointed that Neville did not kill Bellatrix, but not me. Neville never would've lasted a second against Bellatrix. In fact, I am a bit disappointed that Neville did not die. It would've been epic if Neville finds Bellatrix during the final battle for their expected show down that fans have been hyping up since book 4, only to have Bellatrix kill him with one quick avada kedavra. It would've felt so realistically and darkly anti-climactic and would've worked perfectly, in my opinion.

    great idea to finally get a seperate book/music section

    I'm curious about the British to American translation.

    Do they use American english names for things and British slang in the American Harry Potter books?

    I think the first book was the only one to really be American-ized.

    I've read them all, and from what I recall, the books felt very un-americanized...(british slang prevelant, etc)

    I knew for certain JK wrote that in their just so it would be used in the movie:o

    I think Rowling needs to write a book about the life of Grindewald and how he came to be with the Elder wand and how he meet Dumbledore, etc...up until his final words with Voldemort.

    That's a good idea.

    So, Matt, fancy giving this a poll so people can vote on their favourite Potter book?

    Doesn't have to be public. ;)

    I have far too many awesome things to juggle at the moment :csad:

    That's why I didn't take my application any further. I may not have the time, so thought it only fair to allow the position to go to someone who can definitely show up.

    I don't like being a drop-out no-show bastard, so I'm not doing it. Sorry dude.

    It's like you ripped that straight from my brain :eek:

    I feel like parts of that would be too pro-gay for her to have the guts write. Her books are already burnt enough as it is!

    Mrs. Weasley is the one character from Harry Potter I would kill multiple times if I could.

    Not Voldemort, not Dobby - ****ing Molly Weasley.

    *****.

    Sirius should of bitten her throat out :down

    Sorry, but one poorly written campy scene at the end of the Deathly Hallows doesn't change the fact that she was one of the most unlikeable characters throughout the first 6 books.

    I agree with not wanting Neville to kill Bellatrix, but I did not want Neville to die. I think I was actually holding my breath during his whole confrontation with Voldemort, which is now one of my favorite parts of the whole book.

    HBP. I read it once, but I found it very different from the other books. Lovely.

    I've only read the first Harry Potter book, so that puts me leagues behind you guys. But I did enjoy it. The writing felt "dumbed down" to me at first, but it was only because it was the first book geared towards a much younger audience that I had read in a long time.

    I imagine the books read "older" as the series continues, and I would like to continue reading the series in the future. As of last year I have now seen all of the movies.
