cornhobble: (.Dumbledore - Fabulous!)
So I've just finished rereading the last three books of the Harry Potter series, something I've been meaning to do for a while. This is the first time I've gotten to read them all knowing how everything turns out.

I have so much more appreciation for Dumbledore (and Snape) now. Dumbledore is just SUCH A GREAT CHARACTER, manipulative and secretive but at the same time good and always willing to give people a second chance. He's also in the habit of wearing ~flamboyantly-cut purple suits~, which says great things about his sense of style, imo. :DDD

And Snape is like the most emo and misunderstood dude in the entire series. I can't help but appreciate that kind of drama, okay. See this line, after Snape killed Dumbledore and Harry called him a coward:

"'DON'T --" screamed Snape, and his face was suddenly demented, inhuman, as though he was in as much pain as the yelping, howling dog stuck in the burning house behind him -- "CALL ME COWARD!"

;___; YOU GUYS. I've never been really crazy about Snape, but THIS LINE IS SO TRAGIC. I would hug you, Snape, but you'd probably hex me and then I'd get grease on my shirt or something.

The Ginny/Harry and Tonks/Lupin is just as annoying on the reread. Tonks is my FAVORITE, with her pink hair and clumsiness and humor, and I am still displeased about what J.K. Rowling did to her character to get her with Lupin. >:[ Angst is okay, but HER ENTIRE STORYLINE basically evolves around her pining for a guy. Gross.

I feel like Tonks/Ginny would have been the better pairing, y/y/mfy? They would have been sharp and funny and had amazing hair together. ♥__♥

this icon is incredibly inappropriate, considering the content of this post, but it is my ONLY HARRY POTTER ICON so it will have to do.
