I usually try to carefully craft my articles before publishing, even the light hearted, rather silly ones. But I'm having the strangest -- cravings. I've got 45 minutes before Gray's Anatomy starts and I need to get this out before I burst.
I CAN'T WAIT FOR BOOK SEVEN TO GET HERE !!!!!
And at the same time I remember how empty I felt after finishing book six.
For me, that was a difficult read. It didn't go smoothly. I had to really pay attention. And after I finished it, I felt totally bereft. I was sure I had missed some important detail or clue that would allow me to think, to hope, that Dumbledore was not really gone, that Snape had not truly gone over to the dark side, that Potter, and probably all his friends, were not truly facing ultimate doom.
I think of book seven all the time. I can't wait for it to come out. I want to start reading it immediately. And through all of this, I dread when it is finished, when it is all over.
I think that's the big thing with me. The continued story. The continued mystery.
I'm not publishing this to get points. But I do want to hear from all of the Harry Potter fans in Gather. I have so many questions. Surely book seven will answer them, but you never can tell with JKR.
Is Dumbledore really dead?
Will Harry's parents come back?
Will Draco be saved -- from himself? I know, no one likes Draco. But children, even 17 year old children, need guidence.
Will Snape turn out to be the villian we all see him as? Or is there a savior lurking beneath all that greasy black hair?
Will Hagrid find a home life with his lady-love and his giant brother?
Will Ron and Hermione truly fall in love?
Will Harry and Ginny let themselves fall in love?
How will Harry triumph? God, I hope he triumphs.
And so many more questions.
HP fans, I know you are out there. Answer any of my questions. Ask your own questions and we'll see if we can get answers for you. I can't get enough Harry Potter.
I know of only two Harry Potter groups in Gather to post this to. Maybe there are more. I'm throwing this out and hoping to hear from all of you. Mid-July seems so far away. And if I string it out, that book will last till August. And then what?????
I need a Harry Potter fix, and I need it NOW! I hope to hear from you. Let's start the discussion
