Firstly! The first "episode" last year was so cute/funny. So glad they did another!
Pick one question, pick all questions I don't care! But I do urge you to join in and answer something! I wanna know!
What scene are you looking forward to most in the new Harry Potter movie?
Me, there is so much I look forward to, but the stand out scene I want is Mrs. Weasley and Bellatrix. "Not my daughter, you bitch!" CRAP! I got chills. I remember reading that line the first time and my heart nearly exploded! I was SO nervous for Mrs. Weasley! So much sadness by that point, and I just NEEDED her to be alright but at the same time I NEEDED HER TO KICK BELLATRIX'S ASS! Ya know? It was a very powerful mother to the rescue moment. And I loved it. And I can't wait to see it.
What has been your favorite book?
I loved 3. It has been hard to keep 3 as a favorite after 4-7, which were all good competition but it has always been my favorite. It's the first time you get a really good glimpse of how much deeper Voldemorts evil grip has tainted. How it isn't just Harry that has suffered and been struck by loss. I mean, you hear about everyone before then, but you never have seen it yet. And the introduction of Sirius into the novel just opens a new can of crap that has happened to people. Besides the fact that I have adored Sirius Black even before you found out he was on the good team. That helps ;)
Where were you/ how old were you when you picked up the first book?
I was around 15 when I started the first novel in 2001 after the 4th book was released. I was at my dads for the weekend and my sister had gone out on a date with a boyfriend. I was bored. My dad was upstairs, probably asleep, and there was nothing on tv. My friends were all an hour away cellphones weren't THE thing yet. So, as I sat there on the couch debating just giving up and going to bed like a loser at 7pm on a friday night, I noticed my sister left her stupid kid book on the table.
I had heard of Harry Potter but it wasn't something I was interested in because I was 15 and that might make me seem less cool. Cause. That's important and all...But rather than go to bed, I flipped it open to her marked page and started reading in the beginning middle without even reading the back flap to know what it was about. It only took one page for me to NEED to know wtf was going on! I loved Harry and I was concerned about how he got where he was and what was happening. And that was the beginning of my obsessive love 10 years ago. My sister took me to see the movie the very next night, the weekend it was released as a matter of fact.
Are you going to see the movie this weekend? If no, why not?! Are you insane?!
I AM! And yes. A bit.
If you could be anyone from the books, who would it be?
I would be Tonks. I love Tonks. She's bitchin!
Let's not forget that even though this is a major HP mania week in honor of the movie, it's the books that built everything. And it's the woman who built the books. And let me tell you, while this is sad, the last book was truly a depressing, exciting emotional trip when it was released! BUT then, you could at least console yourself with still having movies to look forward to! *sob*
If you haven't read the books...wtf is wrong with you!? ^_^ But seriously, you're missing out on SO much magic and awesomeness if you haven't and I urge you to do it already! The books, they are incredible. JK weaved such a realistic, wonderful, in depth world you just can't miss out on!
I'll be back Friday with pictures of the release night!
And don't forget to check out the other HP Maniacs this week!
MICHAEL DI GESU!
AND RENAE MERCADO!
