I thought it was perfect. I was surprised many times, even by things I was expecting (like with Snape), because she wrote it much better than I could begin to guess. Death after death hit me hard, but I'm exceptionally emotional... and I think it needed to happen. I think this book is the most powerful; more wonderful than I could imagine. Though now I feel like I've been ripped open, that's what it needed to be. What I needed to feel... So, yes... this book is my favorite.

Harry Potter has been with me since 1999, and he has been my best friend through everything. And perhaps that sounds silly and pathetic, but I don't care. I mean every word. Harry not only inspired me to read, but also to write, now one of my most cherished dreams. And now it feels like I've lost my best friend. And while he survived, I'll only see him in memories. And that is a very painful thing.

Hopefully, in a few more days, I can get a better, full collection of thoughts. But right now I'm far too emotional.

Its not really over- anytime you want to say hi you can pick up one of the HP books and he'll be there for you all over again, even if you know what's going to happen in years to come.

Thank you. I know he'll still be there. It just seems like someone you'll only ever see in your memories. So much of my life has been devoted to the books. And this year I've just lost so much. So much one after the other.

Ah, sorry... I don't mean to depress to you. Thanks for saying something. I read all your entries, but I'm usually quite nervous to say things. I just wanted you to know that.

I read all your entries too. Don't worry about saying things on my journal- I don't bite :) Everyone loves getting comments.

Thank you for telling me. :)

I love your new layout. I really like the bookmark-shaped panel and the head section of the main panel is pretty and very apt.

Okay. I'll try to Gryffindor myself up a bit. HeH. (I'm a Hufflepuff at heart.)

Thank you. My friend showed it to me, and I thought it fit perfectly for me. ^_^

I thought it was perfect too. I went to give it to my brother, and he looked at me and I was all cryin', and I just said "it's perfect".

I think JK Rowling will write more. Maybe you can fall in love with her next characters too, I hope so anyway.

Call me today, Val, especially if it's a hard day. I love you so much and you've been in my head [especially during the Harry Potter daze] a lot lately.
In fact, I will get on MSN messenger later and we will talk talk talk. I can't wait.
LOVE YOU <3

Oh my God! That's EXACTLY what I did. I came out and handed the book to my Mom, sobbing, and said, "It's perfect." I swear! <3

I'm sure she will write more. She's a writer; it's part of who she is. And I hope that I can love her new characters too. (Though I will, especially after DH, always want a book about Lily.)

Everyday has been a hard day now. And I hate to put pressure on you, but... I really need you, Pooh Bear.

It's a LJ creation under Style Contest for layout... then Magic Paper for theme. ^_^
