Last warning for spoilers!

Note: I also have a spoiler from Charlotte's Web and OF Mice and Men. For those who have not read those book and do not know what happens in the end, I advise you to turn back now!

Wow, I read so much last night and today that I might as well just finish the book rather than write a second log. I had suspicions about Snape and Dumbledore. As I thought, so far it doesn't look like Dumbledore is as evil as some people who have read the book are making it out to be. It merely seems that Dumbledore is a manipulative asshole just a few heads ahead of Percy when it comes to dickery. THen again, at least Percy redeemed himself. Percy himself seems to be the type of guy who really loves his family deep down even though he seems to loath them in another moment.

Out of all the families in the series, the Weasleys had the highest chance of suffering a tragedy. First, they really supported Harry Potter since the beginning. That doomed them. Second, they have more children than most families, thus increasing their chances of having a death in the war against Voldemort. Lastly, they have been a thorn to his side, such as the several times Ron helped Harry and when the twins threw snowballs at his face.

Speaking of Ron, I have a feeling that he really showed the most growth and truly is a boy worthy of the Gryffindor name. Out of trio, I think Ron is the one who is the most likely to have succumbed to the locket's powers. The way he went against it shows just how strong he is.

Now speaking of Gryffindor, brave as he supposedly was, I fear that I may have been right when I began to think of ideas of what the four founders of Hogwarts were like. For those I hadn't told, I was thinking of making fun of them, because they were characters that were not really characters at all, more background than anything else. Hell, I would even go as far and say they are beautiful plot devices.

Anyway, my original ideas for the humor fic would be that Godric (That's way easier to type.) was an idiot. You know the type. He was a foolish man who would leap into anything without thinking and still have the luck to get out of it. Kinda think of Don Quijote that had magic and a sword. DOn Quijote would still be more preferable. He probably would even go to battle with the sword rather than the wand. Anyway, my idea of him would be more idiotic than the gifts and praise that most speak of him with. So, even so, he seemed to have stolen a goblin's swords, even though the goblins have a weird sense of ownership. Either way, getting on the goblins' nerves totally screwed the present genereation further. In other words, I have a feeling that I was right - Godric was an imbecil.

One of the best parts in the books is where all of Hogwarts take on the attack against Voldemort. Prof. McGongall is badass! All the teachers are. Hell, Neville's grandmother kicks ass. Go old people!

The one thing that is really bothering me is the lack of muggles. I had a feeling they were more important and was going to play a critical role in the story. So far, there isn't. This is concerning me. I hope at least we can see more of Draco. It's good to know there are so many people who care about his well-being. The Malfoys sure have good paternal instincts.

Now, in regards to Snape, I fear to type about him, in case I really spoil someone badly. However, I still have the feeling that his whole life will be one big tragedy. I always knew he was just looking out for people. He never was really the evil one. From what I heard, my aunt cried after reading everything about Snape. Damn, I hope its not what I think.

Speaking of tagedies, I just have to say that Dobby's death was the saddest. What happened to Dobby was up there in the saddest deaths in literature that I ever read, which includes Charolette from Charlotte's Web by E.B. White and Lenny from Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck and made me sadder than any other occurence in the Harry Potter series. I think Dobby was critical to Harry's overall life story. I'm still upset over it, but I couldn't be more happy, because he helped Harry just like he always wanted to.

One last thing I want to bring up is that the childhood stories of wizards and witches that Hermione carries - it contains the story about the Deathly Hollows - seems to be foreshadowing. Someone in the trio is doomed, but I think the most important part is more on how they die and their level of acceptance of it. I could go into analyzing the story, but I would feel very silly.

I think the last thing I want to mention is Ariana. They aren't explicit in what happened to her when she was 6, but the human imgination can run real wild. Who knows? I hope that it isn't the worst thing that I'm thinking of. It is highly unfortunate that such an inncoent girl would be subject to the worst of what Muggles can do. No matter what anyone says, wizards are afraid of Muggles. That's the whole story. A horrid thing, however, from this is that most of the bad things that most fans assume happened to Ariana will only show up, because she is a girl. I personally think she could have been greater than her brothers with the magic she was able to do. It's a huge pity. Either way, the only question I have now is what was Dumbledore really thinking? Whatever we believe, we know most of the characters through Harry's eyes, and we only know some people from what others say about them. This includes Dumbledore. Other characters are the least reliable source of what a character's true nature really is. Therefore, before I make any true final judgements, I'll reserve them and keep reading on.

That's all for now. I'm pretty sure then next one will be me typing about the end. I may or may not complain. Toodles!
