Well, kids, it's official. DRACO MALFOY IS OFFICIALLY HARRY POTTER'S BITCH FOR LIFE. TWICE. I could EXPLODE. *EXPLODES* *WRITES FIC*
Levity aside, I fucking love this book. LOVE. I am so filled with Trio love and H/D love and LOVE LOVE LOVE.
I will not pretend that I love everything about it, because I don't (Slytherins completely shafted despite all the House unity blather from earlier books; Harry and McGonagall casting Unforgivables without a second thought; THE EPILOGUE OF MASSIVE FAIL; some others I misremember ATM but will mock later) but overall? LOVE. A fantastic conclusion to the series and a fitting end for Harry. Oh, Harry. ♥
My inner H/D shipper damn near expired from fangirl squee. "That's my wand you're holding." Harry going back for Draco. THE REVERSE HANDSHAKE. BROOM RIDE. sdfkjljksdfajklsdfjklsfdjklsdfjksdfkjlsd
*CLUTCHES HARRY TO CHEST AND DOES NOT LET GO* You were so wonderful, anger management issues and all, you came through, you persisted, you asked the right questions, you REFUSED TO BELIEVE WHAT YOU WANTED TO BELIEVE, YOU WANTED THE TRUTH. GOD, I LOVE YOU.
RON. I LOVE RON SO MUCH, I LOVE HIS STRUGGLE AND HE CAME BACK AND OMG THE RON AND HARRY! *WRITES FIC*
Hermione. I loved her in this book, completely, so much love. I have never been overly impressed with her but she won me over and wowed me and sldkfjaslfjsklj.
Draco. T_T I can't quite formulate anything coherent about Draco at the moment, but omg. Draco. ;_;
Narcissa, I love you for what you did for Harry. I know you did it more for Draco than for Harry, but you kept silent, you stayed cool, and the book would have ended very differently without your choice to protect Harry's secret.
Snape. Oh, Snape. I am so sorry I doubted you for most of the past two years. T_T
Luna was so great. *_*
Neville, my most favourite of woobies, I have always believed in you, always known you were a hero. ♥♥♥ *writes fic*
ALBUS SEVERUS/SCORPIUS. THE ONLY GOOD THING TO COME OUT OF THAT EPILOGUE. *writes fic*
FRED ;__________________; GOD I'LL MISS YOU. AND SO WILL GEORGE. SO UNFAIR. T_T
KREACHER. T_____________T Just one more, for luck? I cried. I fucking cried.
aksd;fjfasl;js;adj oh, I give up. I loved it, loved it, loved it.
More detailed commentary tomorrow, right now I am going to read it again.
