    This is rather off-topic, but anyone going to a midnight thing for this?

    Who do you think will die?

    Who's the Half-blood prince?

    ACK! I CAN'T WAIT!

    I'm going to a local HP Party tonight. I think the whole family's going, but I'm trying to make myself wait to at least start reading during the daytime, not as soon as the book is handed to me!

    We've got a similar thread going on over in Mos Alba. Some people seem to think the HBP is Seamus.

    My votes are for Snape, Malfoy, or Lupin.

    Ewwww! Snape a Prince?

    And I don't think it could be Malfoy. He's full-blooded.

    Lupin... Interesting.

    I think Malfoy isn't full-blooded for very tabloid reasons.

    I am not giving in to speculation--but I will be getting my book at midnight at the BYU bookstore party! That way I can party from 11 to midnight with other potter fanatics and then sneak away with my book as soon as possible and run back down the hill to my apartment!

    Gah! I vowed that I would finish my Harry Potter story before HBP came out and I did it! I didn't get much sleep last night but I posted about 14,000 words today completeing my story that was first posted April 2003 and first conceived December 2002.
    I'm rather exhausted. Maybe I'll take a nap when I get home--but cleaning checks are tomorrow so I need to clean before Harry Potter...

    Yes, of course, I meant AWEFUL. Hahaha. I think that when I watch movies or read books that SHOULD make me cry, that I just shake instead. I was shaking at the end of Harry Potter. I have yet to read a fic that makes me shake...hahaha.

    I have just finished reading HP 6.

    *SPOILER*


    So you told Kateydidnt that D*** was going to die? How did you figure?
    Did you think there wasn't going to be a 7th year of school?

    Okay, I'm going to black out my answer, highlight to read. [hl=black]I have always figured, since Book 3 when it became apparent that Harry was having to rely almost exclusively on Ron and Hermione for help, that there would come a time when he could no longer rely on Dumbledore. By the end of Book 3, I realized that the way JK Rowling writes would make it so that he was stripped of his defenses and left to rely only on his friends. This meant that he would be facing Voldemort alone. I figured that Dumbledore would be killed in Book 6 from that point on because then Harry would have the entire Book 7 to adapt and shore up his defenses. That was made even more obvious when OOTP came out and he had to go up against the Death Eaters with Luna, Neville, Ginny, Ron, and Hermione. Also, since book 3, when Snape was revealed to be someone that Dumbledore inexplicably (to us) trusted, I figured that Voldemort would find a way to exploit it. He would be the perfect murderer because of that unflagging trust.[/hl]
