Avatar Image says: YAY! this made my day :DAvatar Image says: Yea!!! Happy Christmas Pottercast! Thanks!Avatar Image says: I am soooooo happy for anther pottercast!! :)Avatar Image says: They pronounced my name wrong!! But other than that, they answered two of my questions. I disagree, I think Ron and Hermione did have a talk about the Locket. More happened than just with the Harry and Hermione stuff, Ron has a lot of fears that he might need to talk about. Issues of self worth... I think Hermione kept her mind during the torture becuase mostly for Harry adn Ron in the basement counting on her. And Ron was screaming for her to remind her.Avatar Image says: Finally! But I can't listen right now. I will have to wait till later tonight.Avatar Image says: I haven't listened to the final cut yet, but Deathitude? :pAvatar Image says: ITS NOT WORKING :(Avatar Image says: I loved the show! :D Hope I get a Frankiedoodle on my jingle spells <3Avatar Image says: WOOT, When I saw the title, I immediately thought about 'HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER,' the awesome Barney Stinson and his fortress of Barneytude (:Avatar Image says: Re: The Beedle Movie (if there were one) What about keeping the stories as shorts, surrounded by a kind of frame such as Mrs. Weasley reading them to her children or Harry and Ginny reading them to Albus, James and Lily? They could have Henson or someone do puppetry or even have live actors )perhaps the Harry Potter actors, as children cast their imaginary worlds with the people around them, at least in film)? That might keep the integrity of the stories. Of course, using the actors is another idea entirely, but if it were the Weasleys only Judy Dench would needs be in it, since the children could be younger, and Harry and Ginny could be adults and thus older actors. Just a thought, ChelseyAvatar Image says: Hey Frak - just guessing, but I think you meant JKR has gravitas, not inertia. You were discussing using her "powers for good" within our society. Inertia would imply doing nothing, which is exactly the opposite point you were trying to make... :)Avatar Image says: It isn't working for me either. I've refreshed and deleted my history and my cookies. And this is the second day I've tried to listen and it isn't working for me. Avatar Image says: I admire very Harry Potter, but bugs me that the 7.díle take Hermiona Rona, and no Harryho.Ti two together nehodí.Hermiona is a nice girl and Ron can be said with a little forgiveness Kuní face! And Harry would be the It threw!
