Leaky’s Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 51 Days


Sep 30, 2010

Posted by EdwardTLC

There are now only 51 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 are the latest quotes!

“Kreacher, I’d, er, like you to have this,” he said, pressing the locket into the elf’s hand. “This belonged to Regulus and I”m sure he’d want you to have it as a token of gratitude for what you –”

“Overkill, mate,” said Ron as the elf took one look at the locket, let out a howl of shock and misery, and threw himself back onto the ground.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, “Kreacher’s Tale”

“Oh yes. It is a copy — an excellent copy, it is true — but it was Wizard-made. The original was forged centuries ago by goblins and had certain properties only goblin-made armor possesses. Wherever the genuine sword of Gryffindor is, it is not a vault at Gringotts bank.”

Avatar Imagediv says: 1st..Wow.. i loved that chapter "krecher's tale" Avatar Imagediv says: i din get how at last longbottom got the sword...when it was trickly taken by dat goblin.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: The sword appeared from the hat for a brave and gallant Gryffindor who had need of it at the time, just as it did in Chamber of Secrets. Griphook viewed the history of the sword from a Goblin point of view, and he was a little bit biased. Godric Gryffindor hadn't stolen it.Avatar Imagechikitcorpuzvesterbaek says: the first quote: such a sad story about Dobby and Regulus. the second: i thought upon reading it... "Ha! Thought so!"Avatar ImageSusmita singh says: I too love the chapter 'Kreacher's tale'. And i agree with Ron here that Harry was overkillng. Hahaha. Well i liked the way Harry turned Kreacher towards him. He is so gentle and Hermione too .Avatar ImageSusmita singh says: Can anyone tell what was the yesterday's day?Avatar ImageGryffindor_Girl_xx says: I loe the chapter Kreacher's tale!

They are both great quotes. Avatar Imageksddancer says: Love the first quote! This was one of my favorite chaptersAvatar ImageNot Slytherin says: My heart went out to Kreacher. Poor little guy. He was so devoted to Regulus -- I'm so glad Harry gave him the locket as a gift. It was just so sad when the Trio could not come back to Grimmauld Place. Kreacher had just started to feel valued again. The bit about the fake Sword of Gryffindor was great -- such a surprise and did wonders for making Snape seem even more ridiculous as Headmaster. Then to find out the truth! WOW.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Yes, the whole theme of the Sword is fascinating.Avatar ImageSohumdore says: I never realized what Kreacher had actually went through!!! And I love how they think they 'tricked' Snape!Avatar ImageJane_Potter says: I was literally crying at 'Kreatcher's Tale" when I read it for the first time.Avatar Imagenearramorgan says: It's still a long time to wait...Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: <3 Kreacher! He only wanted some love and was so good to them when he got it.Avatar Imageratorr2 says: I was a little choke up when they gave him the locket. That little token made all the difference in the world to Kreacher.Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: CoolAvatar Imagesiena says: Valeria-Johanna - how do you know Godric Gryffindor hadn't stolen the sword? Even Hermione doesn't know whether he did or not?Avatar ImageStoreyann says: Kreacher's Tale is one of my favorite chapters in the series. For me it was such a turning point in the story. Yay!Avatar ImageStoreyann says: Kreacher's Tale is one of my favorite chapters in the series. For me it was such a turning point in the story. Yay!Avatar ImageHarrypotterultrafan says: Awwww bless kreacher cotton pillow case:'( i felt really sorry for kreacher here :'( great quotes :D can't waitAvatar Imagepigwey says: i'm so pumped. i don't have one single favorite thing about the book, i think every single thing is well written and put together and all of those who read the book by heart now understand why everything happened.Avatar Imagepigwey says: oh yeahh...we love kreacher. i didn't think he was vile at all. he was merely doing his bidding and since the Blacks were Dark wizards, i can see why he behaved this wayAvatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Siena, JKR said so in an interview on 30 July 2007. In reply to the question, 'How did Neville get the Gryffindor sword, is there a link to the hat?' She said, 'Yes, there is very definitely a link to the hat!  Neville, most worthy Gryffindor, asked for help just as Harry did in the Chamber of secrets, and Gryffindor’s sword was transported into Gryffindor’s old hat — the Sorting Hat was Gryffindor’s initially, as you know.  Griphook was wrong — Gryffindor did not ‘steal’ the sword, not unless you are a goblin fanatic and believe that all goblin-made objects really belong to the maker.' Avatar ImageLonewolf_ says: I really like the first quote :)Avatar Imagesiena says: Valeria-Johanna: Thank you for clarifying !!Avatar ImageMistic Willow says: WOW !!! One of my favorite sayings this is I believe what turned the pages for Kreacher!! What a changed House Elf!!! he became!!!!Avatar ImageSlyBones says: Ron made me laugh with that line despite how sad that chapter was. Avatar Imagehogwartslionchaser says: i totally loved that quote! keachers so nice and sweet after tht... feel bad about regulus-good doesnt always win, eh? and rons right. very sneaky of goblins... dont like them very mush though, too suspicios and self righteous, y know?Avatar ImageJessSnape says: I love when Harry gives Kreacher the locket. Avatar ImageExpectoPatronum512 says: love them <3Avatar ImageExpectoPatronum512 says: love them <3Avatar ImageSindi says: Half Way There! 50 more days to wait ... ahhh! lol Avatar Imagebookworm941 says: I love the quote with Kreacher, it was such a nice thing for Harry to do to himAvatar ImageFresca says: I do not think that Harry expected such a reaction from Kreacher when he gave him Regulus's locket. That was the turning point in Kreacher's relationship with Harry. Who knew that Godric Gryffindor's sword would be so important to the story! It is another example of JKR's perfect plot planning. It gets introduced in The Chamber of Secrets, and here it is again in Deathly Hallows! I love how she puts her stories together. Avatar ImageElphabaROCKS1 says: hahaha....poor little Kreacher. I felt so bad in the Deathly Hallows when I realized how good he really was. I always hoped he wasn't harmed when the Death Eaters came to call (we can only hope that he hid....or maybe even convinced them that he was still on 'Miss Cissy' and 'Miss Bella' 's side)Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: I love how Kreacher treated them after this chapter, it just shows that if you're nice to people (and magical creatures) then they'll be nice to you. One of my favourite moments in the book is when the Hogwarts house elves (led by Kreacher) burst out of the kitchens to fight in the name of Regulus and Harry. If that bit's in the film i will be siriusly happy! The second quote shows just how much Harry has grown up, he's coming to terms with what he knows lies infront of him, and even though he doesn't fully understand why he has to do this, he's finally willing to trust Dumbledores plan. The Harry in the middle of the book is definitely a different Harry from the start of the book.Avatar Imageathena lupen says: cool :DAvatar ImageCatherine says: Who didnt love creature after that scene??? It was such a suprise because he had been such a pest--but that sceen was so touching!Avatar Imagehewy says: It was nice to see Harry finally understanding Kreacher!Avatar ImageSalamander says: poor little Kreacher, if only he was as nice as Dobby I would actually really like him (and if he would stop calling Hermione a Mudblood)Avatar Imagemystiqueminx says: poor kreacher,,,i feel bad for himAvatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: one hilarious and one crucial moment
