Leaky’s Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 78 Days


Sep 02, 2010

Posted by EdwardTLC

There are now only 78 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 is today’s quote!

“Why did half of us never even know she existed, until they carried the coffin out of the house and held a funeral for her? Where was saintly Albus while Ariana was locked in the cellar? Off being brilliant at Hogwarts, and never mind what was going on in his own house!”

– Auntie Muriel

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, “The Wedding”

It is not polite to gossip! Haha! She is a very interesting character that I think really brought the part about Dumbledore's past to a very interesting situation where everything is questioned. Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: I love the bit when she says Hermione has "bad posture and skinny ankles" Jo is so good at writing characters you just want to smack! :DAvatar Imagez999993 says: Auntie Muriel is a crazy character i just want to knock out. Only 78 days left! can't wait! :DAvatar Imagemonkeysinhogwarts says: Oh how I dislike that horrid, horrid old woman.Avatar ImageSlyBones says: I like her, she had character. She said exactly what was on her mind without fear of what anyone said or thought of her. So what she wasn't tactful, as far as I'm concerned less BS in the world. Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: I dont like her muchAvatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: muriel sucks but im just meanAvatar ImageSusmita singh says: I can not say i did not like her. She said what she thought was true and right. Also she wasn't aware of the reality.Avatar ImageSusmita singh says: I can not say i did not like her. She said what she thought was true and right. Also she wasn't aware of the reality.Avatar ImageSindi says: she doesn't float my boat... but on the bright side only 78 days left! wooo! :D Avatar ImageBeksey_S says: I do not recognise Matyelok Gibbs, I am interested in seeing how she portrays the part.Avatar ImageGryffindor_Girl_xx says: Auntie Muriel is on the same level of INSANE ANNOYINGNESS as Rita Skeeter. ARGH she really pissed me off. x( Good that she was completely wrong though! Those things she said we're *horrible*...Avatar ImageGraymayne says: Aunt Muriel is the personification of the cynical gossip who is old enough to know that people are not perfect and naturally assumes the worst. A lot of newspapers are sold because of people's need to read about well known successful figures being attacked in just this way. Avatar Imagehermionenluna says: dont like her! Avatar Imagejsaturn14 says: I don't think i can be mad at her. She was just stating what she thought was right.Avatar Imagejaclyngirl713 says: Hmph. >: PAvatar ImageFresca says: Aunt Muriel and Rita Skeeter would have made a great reporting team! Both love gossip and don't care if it is true or not, and neither witch cares a fig for anyone else's feelings. Both are cynical and mean spirited.Avatar ImageDumblebridge says: She didn't say what she thought was true, or right. She just said what she new would hurt and upset people.Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Muriel may not be likable, but I think the point is that by a certain age one no longer cares what other people think. She is correct in pointing out that one of the perqs of being a very elderly woman is that one can finally stop worrying about pleasing other people all the time, as we are trained to do from girlhood. Unfortunately, it sounds like in Muriel's case, she never really cared whom she offended. In a way she is the negative flip side of Luna's refreshing honesty.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Auntie Muriel...tsk tsk.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Whoo-Hoo 78...Avatar Imagehewy says: Auntie Muriel is a huge pain in the back side, however at 107 she's entitled to a litte gossip. I agree that she and Rita would make a dynomite team of world class gossips. Too bad she always thinks the worst of everyone.
