Leaky’s Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 100 Days


Aug 10, 2010

Posted by EdwardTLC

As of midnight tonight in the UK, there are 100 days left until “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I” hits theaters! We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here’s today’s quote!

“I have been careless, and so have been thwarted by luck and chance, those wreckers of all but the best-laid plans. But I know better now. I understand those things that I did not understand before. I must be the one to kill Harry Potter, and I shall be.”

-Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, “The Dark Lord Ascending”

Our theater has a costume contest now and everything. We go in costume every year, it's tradition. Have fun! I can't wait, 100 more days AND we get the HP Exhibit in Seattle in October to make the movie wait a little more bearable AND I just got back from HP World, which was amazing!

I think I'm going HP mad ... OH WELL, WHO CARES!!!!Avatar ImageHBPFan says: About the quote. Voldermort was so off the point, he couldn't possibly understand anything..! Even though he thought he did..Avatar Imagevandy says: Well phrased ! But Voldy's gone mouldy!!!!Avatar Imagehar1020 says: YES! Thank You great idea! Can't Wait!Avatar ImageBookNookKara says: I love this quote because at first glance it sounds really deep but then if you pick it apart you realize it just shows Voldemort's own naivety about his entire situation. Thwarted by luck and chance? Actually no, you just think you're big and bad but you actually don't understand people or the world in general. AAAHHHH I can't wait for this movie!!! haha :o)Avatar ImageRosie016 says: YAY! Already took off work for the opening day!Avatar ImageTraceymmm says: NO WAY! Only 100 days! thats hardly anytime at all! How exciting. Fab idea with the quotes too, i like todays!Avatar ImageMatea says: YAY for the quotedown! I really like this one. Voldy actually thinking straight scared me XDAvatar ImageMelissa Anelli says: I love this quote for its foreboding, and for the way it sets up Voldemort's grand delusions about the world he thinks he lives in. Great choice Edward :)Avatar Imagekiwimci says: Let the quotedown commenceAvatar Imagekandeeland says: ooh i like this quotedown thing. its cool. i like todays quote! its kool.Avatar Imagehalfbloodprincesss says: looooooove it!! brilliant idea TLC!Avatar Imagethundermountain7 says: i a so excited i just can’t wait any more it so close yet far away agggghhhhhhhhh !!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: Voldemort, that arrogant and proud dolt... that's what I think of every time I read this part... Yes, harry had help most of the times, but how can he not see that Harry's loyalty and bravery come to rescue him... But... if he could see, he wouldn't be Voldemort anymore, would he?! I Love this idea... really!Avatar ImageLove is the greatest magic says: The 100 day mark came around quickly. I can't wait to see it!Avatar ImageBlutiful says: Wow! I've been checking out that tiny little countdown box occasionally, and now it says 99!Avatar Imageacciobrain713 says: The Quotedown was a great idea! it'll get us all really in HP spirit!Avatar Imagelizzyrc says: I remember that quote so well, one of the first lines the really made me feel as though this is the last book.Avatar ImageFresca says: This quote shows how twisted Voldemort's mind has become. He really did not "have to" kill anyone, he chose to do so. It is ironic because he really didn't "know" truth, justice, or love. It is a great choice of a quote!Avatar Imagelizzyrc says: why are there no DH movie countdown widgets????????Avatar ImageLeper says: Excellent idea.Avatar ImageCarinaPotter says: What a fantastic idea! It gets everyone in that Potter mode. ;-)Avatar ImageMeggie the Goose says: YESyesyesyesyes!!!!! I made a great countdown sign yesterday, I'm so excited! Love that quote, good old Voldy made some pretty great speeches. :)Avatar ImageMeggie the Goose says: What are we going to do when pt 2 is out too and there's no more countdown?Avatar ImagePhoenixHope says: Oh gosh Meggie don't even bring that up! I have to keep hitting myself when that thought pops into my head. Savor this last year!Avatar ImageSilvery Doe says: Love the quotation idea and what a great first quote!Avatar ImageSilvery Doe says: Love the quotation idea and what a great first quote!Avatar ImageAsria says: I love that ida of yours, Voldy, too bad it went wrong! MOHAHAHAHA!!Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: I always love irony. It's so much fun to reread Rowling and check off all the bits of foreshadowing, but even more so when someone says something so clueless. Poor Voldy, completely oblivious to the fact that he is still following the playbook written by his recently deceased nemesis Dumbledore! If he had let anybody else kill Harry, he might've gotten away with everything, silly ass. But then, a person as smart as he thought he was could never have looked around at the Room of Requirement piled high with junk and say to himself, "I'm the only one who ever discovered this place!", now could he? People with Narcissistic Personality Disorder would be funny if they weren't so annoying.Avatar ImageRavenwing says: baaah! So creepy!Love it! Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: yaaaaaaaay! Great idea!!Avatar Imagemaddison says: It is an amazing idea !!! Too bad Voldemort was wrong !Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Love the quote tributes, Leaky! Oh, Voldy. You THINK you are so cool, but you don't know nuffin.Avatar Imagelumoslove says: I have tingles thinking about how epic this is going to be!!Avatar Imagehermionenluna TZS ROAR! says: nice Avatar Imagehewy says: Soon, very soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3+ months is still seems like a long time.Avatar Imagecoolboy25 says: looking forward to this so much, BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagehprocks2700 says: Only 100 days!Avatar ImageRegulusBlack16 says: i seriously cant wait for this 2 come to theaters... i just didnt want it 2 b released in 2 parts... theres more of a w8 but oh well i guess.. have anyothers noticed the mistakes even in the trailor?Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: Great idea Leaky!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Very nice...
