Nope you aren't the only one there are at least two of us. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
My Dh also knows that he/we will be picking up a book and that I will be reading it as soon as I'm home since we will most likely be picking it up at midnight. LOL!<br><br>
here are my answers to your questions.......<br><br>
Well, what is your favourite book of the series? I think goblet of fire right now. I kind of flip flop around. LOL!<br><br>
Movie? Goblet of fire again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
If you where in Howgarts, in what house would you be? OK I am geek enough that I did the online test and landed in gryphndor (sp?) as did Ds (7yo), Dh and Dd1 landed in hufflepuff, we are waiting for Dd2 to be old enough to do the test and find out where she lands. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Snape is good or bad? I'm on the fence. I'm one of those who likes to look at things from all the possible angles and I can't decide. I think he is at least a bit of a jack ass though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Is Dumbledore really dead? Unfortunately I think dumbledor is really truely dead. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Is Siriuis Black reappearing in the 7th book? I hadn't thought of that angle. It's a possibility. I was choking back tears when he left.<br><br>
What's your favouirte character(s)? I have a huge soft spot for Hagrid and Lupin (been in that outcast possition), Hermione is a girl after my own heart (come opn we geeks and bookworms have to pull for each other), Harry of course is total coolness, and you have to love a well meaning goof like Ron.<br>
I could go on and on but I need to take the kids outside. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Well, what is your favourite book of the series? I think probably a tie between Goblet of Fire and the Half-Blood Prince<br><br>
Movie? I love them all, but also, not as much as the books!<br><br>
If you where in Howgarts, in what house would you be? Probably Ravenclaw (oooh, I can't wait to take the online test once I find it! Thanks, Paganmum!)<br><br>
Snape is good or bad? I'm hoping for good<br><br>
Is Dumbledore really dead? This is a tough one. I desperately hope he's not, but I think he must be (I cried terribly when he died, and have recently been feeling sad about it, since the new book is coming semi-soon)<br><br>
Is Siriuis Black reappearing in the 7th book? I don't believe so; but I do believe that his family will be figuring in the 7th book quite a bit<br><br>
What's your favouirte character(s)? Dumbledore, without a doubt, and to be honest, I like Snape (mostly because of Alan Rickman's very witty, excellent performances in the films)<br><br><br>
I'm such a HP geek that for Mother's Day my DH bought me a HP theories book (in regard to what MIGHT be in store in the seventh book). I love the books immensely, and always get them on release day. I'm debating a pre-order from Amazon, but I don't know if it will be delivered on 7-21, or if it will only be shipped then!

I was devasted when Sirius died as well, argh, he became my favourite character since his first appearance and when the movie comes out, I will cry when he dies seriously<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"><br><br>
We did the test in a magazine, i don't rememvber what I was though, I will do it again, but DD1 came out as a Gryffindor, becuase she demanded the Gryffindor scarf that we got from legendarytoys.com<br>
and I think DH came out as Revenclaw as well, I will do the test again.<br><br>
I didn't liked movie 4 much, is my least favourite, I did like Voldemort, he came out well. I like the book about Magical Creatures too, pretty cool.<br><br>
I like Rickman as well, I love when he hits Ron, ha so funny lol<br><br>
And don't you hate, about what Christians saying that Harry Potter promotes witchcraft on children, ugh, I hate that, totally I mean, why don't they just shut up for a moment?. Besides it will be cool if magic will exist like that you know. I will totally love it. and I'm a Christian(a non practicing Christian)<br>
And I'm not trying to offend here.

i haveheard this soooo much and it bugs me, a VERY much practicing christian...if you are using the HP books as a lesson on how to do witchcraft, then maybe theres a problem...<br><br>
on another note, im glad im not the only one who is hysteric when a character dies... lol, i just re-read HBP a few weeks ago and was sobbing by the end of it. DH just rolls his eyes at me/

even if he is good- do you think they (wizarding community) would take him back? or is he just screwed. and how exactly would that work (him being good) i assume that it would be that he had to kill dumbledore or else he would have died? that still confuses me- shocked the heck out of me, ill admit that

oooh thats hard. i really loved OoTP HBP made me cry SO hard, but then so did OoTP, but i also totally enjoyed GoF. too hard!<br><br>
Movie?<br>
i hate answering this, because i do enjoy them all, i really enjoy watching the kids grow into their charachters, i DONT like when the movie doesnt follow the book exactly... but as far as visuals so far it has been GoF.<br><br>
If you where in Howgarts, in what house would you be?<br>
i know i wouldnt be Gryffendor, i am NOT brave, i wouldnt be Slytherin, cause while i am mildly evil, i am not snakey enough, maybe Ravenclaw, i am a smarty pants, but also maybe Hufflepuff, cause i am a good good friend... ah who knows.<br><br>
Snape is good or bad?<br>

rjruiz_415, I have to agree, It shocked me that Snape killed Dumbledore, i was very shocked, and I totally have the same question as you, if he's good will he be accepted?, ugh it's so confusing!!!!!<br><br>

I do love this thread, it's so nice to talk HP with other interested fans. I was telling DH about the posts last night after all children were asleep and we had <i>yet another</i> lengthy debate about Dumbledore truly being dead and whether or not Snape is good.<br>
On my myspace page I made a countdown box until midnight July 21. 2007, so I can look at it every so often just to remind myself that it will be here soon-ish. Not soon enough, but relatively soon. I can't wait though; I wish it was today, or yesterday!

My husband thinks that I'm totally weird!!! I have read the books at least 3X each. I definately thought I was the only one who loved them this much. I cried for 2 hours when I read that Sirius died and another hour when Dumbledore died!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:<br><br><br>
Well, what is your favourite book of the series? Goblet of Fire<br>
Movie? Sorcerers Stone<br>
If you where in Howgarts, in what house would you be? Gryffendor<br>
Snape is good or bad? Leaning towards good, he didn't kill Harry right?!<br>
Is Dumbledore really dead? Yes, Jo has said that he is definately dead. See <a href="http://www.Mugglenet.com" target="_blank">www.Mugglenet.com</a><br>
Is Siriuis Black reappearing in the 7th book? I say no, but I can't be sure.<br>
What's your favouirte character(s)? Ron, he's so goofy. Hagrid is second, I just want to hug him. Fred and George, I hated seeing them leave the school early, they added such flare!

I am a huge fan!<br><br>
As a matter of fact -I'm buying TWO books in July. I have to! I have a 12 year old and a 13 year old. Plus me!<br><br>
We are also planning to head out to the midnight fun. My 13 year old look like Harry and Daniel. I'll post a pic later. He really does.<br><br>
(I have to scan it....)

I love the Fred and George thing<br>
"U - NO - POO"<br><br>
Love it lol<br><br>
My DH doesn't think I'm weird, becuase he has read all the books, and besides, people tell him how much he looks like Gary Oldman(and oh my celeb crush), he have been confused to be him, and his name is Gary as well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> And they are the same age. It's weird rerally, my DH is taller though.

Well, what is your favourite book of the series? Order of the Phoenix. I spent 6 weeks overseas with only one english-language book, and that was it. I think I memorized it. It got completely trashed, chewed, dog-eared and ripped apart.<br><br>
Movie? Chamber of Secrets. ds is fascinated with the part where they slide down the "slimy hole".<br><br>
If you where in Howgarts, in what house would you be? Ravenclaw.<br><br>
Snape is good or bad? Good!!! Unpopular is not the same as evil!!<br><br>
Is Dumbledore really dead? yes. But not truly gone.<br><br>
Is Siriuis Black reappearing in the 7th book? I don't believe he really died in the first place.<br><br>
What's your favouirte character(s)? Sirius. He has to come back. He's just got to.<br><br>
Another question I'd like to add: What's your favorite pet theory about book 7? (unless that would act as a spoiler to others? but I just love to hear the theories and I love making them up too)

I love seeing that there are other grown women out there just as obsessed with Harry Potter as I am!!!! Most books I just read when I go to bed. The HP ones I carry around the house with me and read as I cook, go to the bathroom, whatever. I can't get enough. As a writer, I am also jealous that this woman has such an amazing imagination and the ability to do that to people. I can only hope that someday someone reads one of my books while sitting on the toilet.<br><br>
Favorite book of the series- Probably the Half-Blood Prince. GoF is a close second.<br><br>
Fave movie? I'm going to say number three - Prisoner of Azkaban<br><br>
What house would I be in? Maybe Ravenclaw, or Gryffendor<br><br>
Snape good or bad? God, I don't know. I was so shocked when he killed Dumbledore, but then I remembered that vow he made to help Malfoy...is that why he did it? I don't know. He's a complex character. I can see this bitter lonely little boy in him, also this angry man full of hatred, but he has been so loyal to Dumbledore all these years, and it's hard to believe Dumbledore was wrong about him all this time. I just don't know.<br><br>
Dumbledore dead? Unfortunately, I believe so. I cried for like an hour.<br><br>
Sirius Black - I think he might return in the next book. I hope so.<br><br>
Favorite characters? Harry, of course. Lupin was great...as was Sirius. And Dumbledore. That's a hard one. I'm kind of like Hermione too sometimes, a little know-it-all.<br><br>
As for the next book, I haven't thought a lot about it. I am afraid of who will die, and afraid it will be Harry in the end. We should get the answers to all our questions, like about Snape and Dumbledore. I wish we could go back and find out more about Lily and James before they died. Stuff like that.<br><br>
OT, but my ds#1 has loved HP since he was 2. He would watch the movies even then, and he was HP for Halloween when he was 3. He looked just like him, dark hair and glasses (fake ones). Loved it!
