Luinthoron's LiveJournal v.15.3
Written right after finishing DH, while LJ was still down (3:42)

Not going to say much as it's too late and I need to go to sleep, but chapter 33 basically confirmed almost everything every single fanfic writer had ever written. :D And apparently I missed Snape's Patronus just barely.

Also, Kreacher rocks! :D And also owns the best quote of the whole book: "Perhaps just one more, Master Harry, for luck?"

Also, Dumbledore is definitely equal to the Glorious Strategist (see: Jade Empire). ;) Just a lot less evil.

Also, Snape is even greater than we though!

And most importantly, I will still personally kill JKR for betraying all our hopes and not making it D/G. I mean, we trusted her so much! *nods*

P.S.: frankenspam really seems to have sent JKR her works. There's no other explanation for a couple of things in the book, especially Peeves' little poem.

P.P.S.: If they really will translate the title into Estonian as what was used in the last article about the book, I will lose any little remaining faith in the translators of the series.

Maybe more later once I've digested the whole thing.

Yes. Why not D/G? Waah.Bugger.
and this is said by a slasher

Hey, what WAS the title translated into in the last article about the book?

Um. Just lurkin' in sookail's friendslist? Many apologies for the intrusion. plis not to kill

Harry Potter ja surmapühakud

Considering what the Hallows were... It's just plain wrong.
25th-Jul-2007 05:09 pm (UTC)
Just curious...

How does that translate back to English?
25th-Jul-2007 05:20 pm (UTC)
Oh, it translates back perfectly as Hallows. Or Saints. Definitely a word used only for people, though. Exactly what the Hallows in the book weren't.
25th-Jul-2007 05:49 pm (UTC)
Ah. Yes, it's a very broad term.

*must go and continue to spread the SNAPE love*

That's like... Um. NJAH. Ainus lootus on, et kodanikud pole veel lugenud ei raamatut ega ka intervjuusid Rowlinguga, ja seega vaevlevad pühas teadmatuses. Ja artikli autor polnud ka ükski Potteri tõlkijatest (minu teada? Seda ohtlikku ametit peavad vist Kaerade dünastia liikmed), mis on väikseks lohutuseks.
25th-Jul-2007 05:17 pm (UTC)
Seda küll. Viienda raamatu jaoks esialgu pakutud Fööniksi Käsk oli muidugi veel hullem. Loodame ikka, et lõplik pealkiri ka raamatu sisuga arvestab.

Oh, god. You have GOT to be joking. Muhahahahaaa. Oleks võinud jäädagi, nii hea segadusetekitaja.

Ja miskipärast meenutas see mulle ühte thread'i fandom_wankis. Don't know why, but so it did.

I couldn't believe the whole Snape thing. God, that was STRAIGHT out of bad ff.net fanfiction. *claws eyes out*

Then he dies in a very undignified, cruddy fashion. *stabs*

Yes, well, remember Draco and Ginny were at school for nearly a full year without the trio or her brothers and that the epilogue was a mistake and really doesn't exist....

The bit wit Snape and Lily? Yes, a bit like that... Surprisingly, it wasn't that bad, though.
25th-Jul-2007 08:35 am (UTC)
I think she was a little heavy handed with it. It was fine, but the whole "look at me" bit was taking it just a tad too far. And the adopting Lily's patronus *gag* She just took it a step too far I think in trying to manipulate our feelings.
25th-Jul-2007 08:57 am (UTC)
There wasn't anything to manipulate, though. I mean, it was clear even in the last book why exactly Snape killed Dumbledore. The whole chapter was merely confirming what we already thought.
25th-Jul-2007 09:03 am (UTC)
Well, we all knew that Dumbledore had planned his own demise. I'm talking about the Snape/Lily stuff. She really went for the overkill there. That is the one fault I have with Rowling is she is much more in the vain of telling rather than showing.
