Talking The Harry Potter appreciation thread!

Well, we've got threads for just about everything else one of us likes And besides, once we get some discussion going on in here, I'll be more likely to respond in a timely matter, instead of forgetting for months at a time like I do with PMs

THREAD INFORMATION AND RULES:

THIS THREAD IS NOT SPOILER-FREE! We discuss events through Book 5, so if you haven't finished that yet and don't want to be spoiled, stop where you are.

Fans of different ships post here; don't bash someone who likes the idea of Harry/Hermione just because you're dead-set on Ron/Hermione. That's stupid.

If you're new here, please take the time to read through the previous posts so we don't end up discussing the same thing over and over again. Unless its a really good topic and we want to. Also, feel free to pose a question for discussion. We don't bite.

Hee. Hee. Marly's awesome.
Okay, let me think of a discussion question.
All right. Who is your favorite marauder and why?

Re: The Harry Potter appreciation thread!

Lupin! Because he's cool He's smart and he's got that whole semi-tragic feel about him, but it doesn't seem to have affected him as much as Sirius's experiences have done to him.

I mean, yes, Sirius was in Azkaban for like 13 years, but it obviously didn't drive him insane like it does most people.

Lupin, on the other hand, had two of his best friends murdered, and thought for 13 years that his third best betrayed the first two and murdered the fourth. How major is that? And on top of everything else, he couldn't take care of Harry (I'm assuming because of the werewolf thing) and barely survives on the fringe of society. But he's not as consumed with revenge or as manic depressive as Sirius. Lupin rocks

Who's your favorite? And for the next question...what do you think of Ginny Weasley?

Re: The Harry Potter appreciation thread!

Sirius. He's a smartass and sounds sexy and I picture a dirty Christian Bale everytime I see him. Although I do like Lupin because he wasn't an asshole back at Hogwarts like Sirius and James were.

I love Ginny now. I was pretty much indifferent to her in the first 4 books because she had no character development. She was just a simpering little fool with a Harry crush. Even though in the 2nd movie Bonnie Wright played her so cute when she first saw Harry. Anyway now she rocks, she doesn't like Harry anymore and she's all feisty. Girl can stick up for herself now.

ok here's another question for y'all. What couples/potential couples do you like?
I ship James/Lily, Harry/Hermione, Draco/Ginny, and Ron/Luna.

Ok this is officially my favourite thread!!!!

Sirius is my favourite, i am still so traumatised that hes gone!!! I just love his whole bad sexy thing and omg i loved all the things he said my favourite line from the 3rd book 'its nothing 2 be proud of that u made a better rat than human, peter' lol hahahaha and i love how much he loves harry (poor harry has no1 now ) , but yeah i like lupin 2 i feel so sorry 4 him his 2 best friends dead and the one that is alive is a rat (literally and figuratively).

With the couples i reckon ron and hermione are gonna get 2gether, theres so much tension there.

and ginny i like her so much more after reading the 5th book because yeah now we actually got 2 know her u know and shes more her own person not just ron's little sister.

Re: The Harry Potter appreciation thread!

I'm a Lupin fan as well.
It always seemed odd to me that he wouldn't tell Harry right away that he had been a good friend of his father's--but then, I suppose he didn't want to remind people of his connection with Sirius. I just think Lupin is a great teacher and a very responsible parental figure, like Molly Weasley but less crazy. And I hope we will see much more of him. Hopefully he can be a new window into Lily and James for Harry, one I hope he takes advantage of.
How come we haven't met any of Lily's old school friends? She must have had some.
This is a long post, so I'll do Ginny a bit later. But my ships are Ron/Hermione and Lily/James.

Re: The Harry Potter appreciation thread!

I've wondered about Lily too. What's with it always being pointed out that Harry looks so much like James, but has green eyes like Lily's? Hopefully we'll meet another friend of James/Lily's that's in the Order in one of the next books.

I love Ginny. I thought her crush in CoS was adorable ("his eyes are as green as a fresh pickled toad" ) and I always wanted her to have a bigger part in the books. I thought it would be cool for her get closer to the Trio, in part because Hermione needs a girlfriend to gossip with Ginny is just awesome in OotP. She snaps Harry out of his poor-pitiful-me crap by reminding him that she was possessed by Voldemort, helps kick butt in the Department of Mysteries, and best of all, snatches the Snitch right out from under Cho Chang's nose

On that note, I ship, not surprisingly, Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny

Re: The Harry Potter appreciation thread!

Pff, how can you ship Harry/Hermione? Not that we're going to argue about it or anything

Btw, I also ship Fred/Angelina, Bill/Fleur, and Lupin/Tonks

Re: The Harry Potter appreciation thread!

Now there's some ships I like.

I got really freaked out when I read OotP because most of the major novel fanfic writers have Bill/Fleur in their stories and one has Arabella Figg as a squib and they actually came true. I seriously got chills when I read that in the book.

Re: The Harry Potter appreciation thread!

Okay, here are my Ginny thoughts:
I had very little use for Ginny until the last book. I feel like Ginny finally has a personality (and a good one, at that). And the scenes with Ron talking about her boyfriends were absolutely priceless. I'm not quite a Harry/Ginny shipper yet, but I think they'd be good together and it certainly looks like Rowling is going to go in that direction.
I've never actually thought about Lupin/Tonks. Interesting.
Okay, new question: Are McGonagall and Dumbledore secretly married? Thoughts please.

Re: The Harry Potter appreciation thread!

Is it just me, or is Ron a Harry/Ginny shipper?

Tonks is

McGonagall and Dumbledore aren't secretly married, but they have both hidden a torrid, long-simmering passion for each other from each other for the 30 some-odd years McGonagall has been teaching at Hogwarts. Perhaps with the return of Voldemort, one of them will finally let down their guard and make a move before its too late

On that note, I think Professors Vector and Sinistra are having an affair

It's not just you. I really hope we'll learn more about the times Lily and James escaped Voldemort and what it was about the fourth time that led to their deaths.

Re: The Harry Potter appreciation thread!

Wormtail blabbering to Voldemort was what led to their deaths But I know what you mean.

New discussion question: who is your favorite member of the Trio and why?
