For some reason, I feel like I should be writing or making icons in preparation for the book coming out, but I have zero inspiration. So if anyone wants me to write them a drabble or make them an icon, feel free to ask, and I'll reply with what you want.

On another note, what are people's thoughts on the movie? I haven't seen it (and I don't plan to - I'm horribly biased against the movies) and I've heard mixed thoughts about what its like.

Deathly Predictions?
by Tiny Wings (tiny_wings)
at June 11th, 2007 (03:32 pm)

The thing that I miss the most, perhaps, now that Requiem is gone, is all the pre-book-release excitement. I really miss speculating with everyone as to what will happen in the new book, hearing everyone's theories, wild or realistic, the reports of hints from JKR, etc. I feel slightly out of touch with the 7th book coming out so soon!

So.

I've been re-reading all my HP books in preparation for Deathly Hallow's release (I'm in the middle of OotP now) and so I'm trying to come up with some predictions as to the final book's plot... What does everyone think is going to happen? Anyone read any hints anywhere?

And the big question, I suppose: do you think Harry will live, or die? As much as I'd like for him to kill Voldemort then become a pro Quidditch player and live a quiet life in a cottage with his wife Ginny, their many kids, and a black dog called Snuffles, I'm not feeling very optimistic :-( He's been told so many times that he'll go the same way as his parents... However I can't imagine the series ending with Voldemort still alive. I'm also very confused, because a wand isn't supposed to be able to work against its brother, see what happened in GoF when Voldemort and Harry duelled?

Warning, possible spoiler alerts in comments! (But please, if you've heard a spoiler of the Snape-killed-Dumbledore type, please don't post it here.)

Requiem Gone?

Okay, so I'm revamping my H/G website (http://www.harryginny.net), and am working on my button/affiliate section. I'm going back and checking to see what does and what does not exist.

Am I to believe correctly, Requiem is gone and therefore no longer needs to be included? (I can always include a link to this community in my portkeys section, of course).

Also, while I had not intended to actively plug the site, I read through the threads and noted that some of you prefer the feeling of an actual forum to LJ. HG.net's forums are up and running, although there aren't really any members or posts left from the transition between forum software. Your attendance and your contributions (art, icons, fanfiction) are very welcome.

New RPG - starting this Friday - looking for Harry
by Millie (millieweasley)

OPEN CASTING CALL!

A WAR-TIME HARRY POTTER RPG


Voldemort is dead – has been for six years – the war should have been over that night long ago when Harry Potter did what no one dared believe he would do. The war, however, didn't end, but went on. Regrouping under Bellatrix and Rodolphus Lestrange, the Death Eaters kept fighting and with the Ministry gone and the Minister for Magic killed, the wizarding world was thrown into chaos.


From this chaos, two new factions were born. One group (under the leadership of Minerva McGonagall) wanted to open wizarding society to a decidedly uspcious Muggle world, whilst the others wanted to close off the wizarding world completely from Muggle influence and seek strength in isolation. With a brutal attack destroying Diagon Alley that left a part of London burning, the two factions of light realise they must start working together to defeat the Death Eaters.


The game begins at this turning point of the war - the point where the side of light finally has a chance to win. But there is still a long way to go. Can these two factions put aside their differences to finally win this war, or will they dissolve into their own fighting, giving the Death Eaters a chance to overcome?


Join us as the Wizarding World flocks to the relative safety of Hogsmeade and Hogwarts in this time where things are not so black or white. Beyond the Darkness...



Looking for a game where player influence on the main plot is high? Do you think your characters can fit into this far from perfect world?


We are looking for all types of character but even with the great cast we already have, we're still missing certain key characters to the game. Right now we're especially looking for:

* Harry (we have a fantastic Ginny willing to play, but if you have something else in mind that is fine too)
* Hermione (here too we have a great Ron willing to play if you want to go down that road, although it's not a requirement)
* Lucius (we have Narcissa and Draco already waiting for him)
* Snape (this is SUCH an important character for us. Our Draco is quite lost without his backstory and need a Snape to plot with.)

A lot of other major characters are still available and for those feeling the need to play evil, Death Eaters will be a large part of the game, so there is a need for sufficiently evil and competent characters.


Contact btd.mods@gmail.com with any questions, or to e-mail the application form. This promises to be an interesting and active game, and opens in Feb. 2007!

The Title of Book Seven

current mood: geeky
current song: Not really music, but, well, MuggleCast Episode 69

Okay everyone! Going with the cliche, this is the beginning of the end to the HP series, the title to book seven has been released: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Here's were we can all share our theories and thoughts on this obscure title, this title with no direct meaning or direct connection that we can really make. There are so many meanings one can gather from this title and so many places people can take with it, so, I want to know what you guys all think and theorize about it. So, have fun and discuss, I'll add my two knuts in after I hear some of what you guys think. : )

Ron/Hermione=100% Chance of Docking
by lilyginnyblack (lilyginnyblack)

content

current location: East Haven, CT
current mood: content
current song: Tokyo Nights-Utada

First off, I don't have any pictures of the event, yet, but as soon as I get them I'll post them here. Second off, sorry about taking so long to post this, I've been so busy lately! And, finally, onto the event itself...

It was truly magical (I apologize for the word usage, but it is the only word that can properly explain how the evening felt to me). To hear JK's voice as she read the part of the book where Dumbledore told Tom Riddle that he was a wizard and to know that I was in the same room as someone I admire so much...As I said before, magical! *.*

Now, onto what everyone is actually interested in-the questions! :P From the questions and answers that I received I was able to draw these conclusions:

I now believe 99.9% that Draco is going to be redeemed.

The connection between a wand and its user is going to be talked about and divulged further in book seven (perhaps some hint to Voldemort's downfall in some way?)

Ollivander choice in, what he believes to be the most powerful wand cores, stem from JK just picking her three favorite. (NOTE: According to Rowling there are multiple wandmakers and some (according to their country) will use wand cores from their countries magical creature (i.e. Fluer's veela core wand.)

Another tid-bit question that was asked was: "If muggles are given all of the ingredients and the instructions, can they brew a potion?" The answer was a blunt: "No." The reason being that, no matter what, some form of magic is needed for all potions, whether it be that the potion needs to be mixed with a wand at one point or something else along those lines.

JK Rowling never had the thought to give up writing HP, yet, after sixteen years, if the book had never been published she would probably be a teacher (or so she said).

"What would Hermione see if she looked into the Mirror of Erised?" The answer that JK had first started with seemed rather upsetting (in the fact that it stated something that we all figured anyone during a war would see: Voldemort dead, Harry, Ron, and herself alive) but then JK gave us the kind of answer that we all wanted to hear: "and herself entangled rather closely with someone, of whom all of us should know by now." And, though JK didn't make it 100% clear of whom that someone was a large round of cheers was met with this (myself included). After all, it had to be Ron, by the fact that JK said we should all know who it is by now, and she always says that when referring to Ron/Hermione. Yet, if that wasn't enough to convince everyone that Ron and Hermione are getting together at the end of the next book, this next question will:

She was asked her thoughts on the Internet and HP, at which, she answered that for the longest time she didn't even dare to check the Web. That was, until one bored day, and then she was shocked by what she found (millions upon millions of links and sites). Then, Rowling mentioned shipping and the shipping wars...she spoke of Harry/Hermione, there was a small round of cheers to which she replied to the cheers (in a shocked voice) "You're still there!"...then she made mention of Ron/Hermione...and the whole place exploded (I was in with the cheering and yelling too!xD) Finally, she said how there were some couples that were so odd that she didn't think she could say them (and I believe someone yelled out Harry/Fleur, but I'm not 100% sure on that one!) ;)

But, all in all, the one thing I came out 100% sure of...was that Ron/Hermione are a give in for book seven! ^^

If you all are still interested, I need to know, I probably wouldn't be able to moderate the thing alone. I can run it fine , and host it, and set it up, and all that. But if there's no interest...well, you know :)

Anyone?

JK Rowling Interview

contemplative

current mood: contemplative

Just wanted to read what you guys think of the newest JK Rowling interview. Of, course, most of the questions and answers were re-hashed, yet, we did get one MAJOR bit of info from JK that have had fans talking.

"Although she still has the final chapter of Book 7 stored away in a safe, it has been altered slightly: Two more people have kicked the can while another has gotten a reprieve." (MuggleNet)

I don't have all that much time to discuss my thoughts or opinions, but I wanted to see what you guys all felt about this statement. Who you think are the two newly added deaths and the one who has gotten a reprieve. Have fun and discuss your hearts out! :D
