So… I am still really depressed about the stuff they changed in the HBP movie. I didn’t want to bring you all down with another rant though, so I decided to write a song about it. It’s to ‘We Will Rock You’ by Queen. Forget that it's totally random and sing along! Harry you’re a boy in a movie Wait no it’s a book though I guess someone bought the rights You got Hermy in your face Ron’s a disgrace Producers are singing all over the place: We will we will change you (cause we can)...Comments (1)
Right, so, the movie being moved from November till July – was I upset? Sure. But I chose to gloss over it, cause I don't like complaining about stuff (I needed you to know that before you kept reading...). I’d wait, of course I would, I knew the end product would be amazing! But of course, I was expecting Half-Blood Prince. So what the bleep is this movie that’s allegedly being released in its name?! (Don’t read on if you do not want to know any details from the screening reports. I...Comments
(Shipper alert! Beep beep beep! This blog post does feature shipping! Proceed with caution.) I make no secret of the fact that I absolutely love Ginny Weasley (even amongst my Harmony-loving friends who are indisposed to liking her by principle). She and Ron share the place as my favourite character, and if I had to choose just one I’d have to give Ginny the edge. Ironically enough she is of course one of the least fleshed out characters in the story, which I guess is why so many people have...Comments (3)
Damn it. If you are a writer of any sort – whether it be of novels, of blogs, of essays for school or anything else (and that’s pretty much all of you creative Potter fans I’m sure), you know exactly how excruciatingly painful and frustrating writer’s block can be! And not only writer’s blog… I find with a lot of stuff I do, I put it off or quickly stop thinking about it if it enters my mind because I feel so horribly guilty that I’m not writing it, and I feel some kind of unexplained...Comments
I’m baaack! Sorry for the delay guys, I’ve been to Ireland for a few days with my family! It was awesome – my little brother suddenly decided he wanted to be tourist of the year, and so used all his pocket money to buy an Ireland t-shirt, an Irish flag, and best of all a big green hat with a shamrock on it. I thought it was really embarrassing until I realised how much he looked like Ginny at the Quidditch World Cup, and I just thought that was totally awesome. We’re actually going to...Comments (1)
Spot the difference: Okay, this is not what I planned for my second (first real) blog post, but it’s something I feel I should comment on – as a Leaky blogger, I finally have a venue through which I can express my opinions! You might have seen the front page of the Half-Blood Prince calendar which was released earlier today, and I’m SURE you’ve seen the teaser trailer by now… and you’ve probably all noticed a common theme: there is no Hermione. Sure she’s in promo pictures, but,...Comments (2)
Ah, what a beautiful day. The sun is shining, the butterflies are chasing each other, and I bet the sea is just the right temperature for swimming right now. Soooo… why am I sitting here writing this? Well, it’s for my Leaky blog! Which I am so excited to be writing! I hope that this will be a lot of fun for both me and you who read it, and I’ll promise to make this entertaining and interesting! No, really! I know you have to scroll all the way to the S'es (why couldn't I have been called...Comments (4)
