Obituary for Hermione Jane GrangerHermione Jane Granger

She Will Be Loved

Hermione Jane Granger, 15, of London was born a muggle-born but had more wisdom and talent for magic than any pure-blood would ever have. She was found in the MOM by Albus Dumbledore after she gave her life to defend and protect Harry James Potter.

Ms. Granger was the top student in her year at Hogwarts and idolized by girls who sought to be compassionate, independent, morally true and intelligent in their character. She will be missed by all except Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley. Ms. Weasley was quoted as saying “I am glad she is out of the picture now.” “Now we know it can be Harry and me who will have many beautiful red haired babies we can name after his mom.” “She should have never been in the picture since she isn’t beautiful like me, sarcastic and knows how to get a man”. Mr. Potter was quoted as saying ” Well, she served her purpose but she isn’t beautiful and immoral like my Ginny is.” “She didn’t smell like flowers but I used her when I needed trusted information and to get my hide out of trouble.” Ron Weasley had no comment since his mouth was full of food and he was in pursuit of a blond haired woman through the funeral home. Professor McGonagall was quoted as saying “Hermione was my favorite student. She was a true Gryffindor to the end and loved by all.”

Hermione Jane Granger is survived by her parents.

Services will be held at 2:00 p.m. in the Great Hall of Hogwarts. Albus Dumbledore will be officiating. The casket will be carried by Hagrid, Remus Lupin, Professor Victor, Professor Sprout and Dobby the House Elf. She will be laid to rest in the Godric Hollow Memorial Cemetery at 3:00 p.m. on June 3.

Those who wish to send flowers are encourage to send donations to S.P.E.W. instead.

Well, what can I say? We are halfway through 2007, and most of it has been filled with loads and loads of disappointments. So here is a look at a few of these… beginning with THIS.

The list begins with Spiderman 3 – quite a disappointment storywise, pitty – as trailers looked so good. Continuing with that, in no particular order, are… 300, Pirates of the Caribbean 3, Fantastic 4 2 (although this one, I wasn’t expecting that much) – Harry Potter 5… what a bloody editing mess.

And joining this is… Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I yell, bloody murder! How can you write something so different from all the books… having more plot holes, inconsistencies and plot devices. Maybe I have a problem with having been told that “No one comes back from the death.” or… “no magic can bring the dead back.” Yet we see Harry pulling a Jesus.

And what the fudge is up with “choosing what’s right over what is easy” or the more important “power of love” – beginning the series, we encounter a young boy terribly mistreated by his only family, only to discover he belongs to another world where, hey! people don’t think he’s scum – but he still doesn’t know what it is to be loved… yeah, he was loved by his parents… his mom gave up her life for him – he was Harry, just Harry to them. Yet, he meets all this people that only seem to care for him because he is The-Boy-Who-Lived… even the family of his best friend thinks of him as The-Boy-Who-Lived… his friend wants and asks Harry of his scar, staring at it like it’s a goddamn magical wart.

But there’s this one person that he meets who obviously knows about him, but gives a rat’s ass about his reputation… he notices her, and after a troll-sized rescue, they become friends (alongside the friend who stares). Following that, this friend helps him through and through, giving away truly significant clues and answers to the quest. Who was there when Sirius and Harry were being attacked by the pack of Dementors… who went back on time with Harry to save the day? Who was the one believing Harry in GoF, despite everyone being against him? Who’s Harry’s ‘man’ through and through no matter what??? Heck, who left their parents during Christmas because Harry was brooding, and no one dared to go around him? Who went with Harry to the DoM even when she knew it might be a trap?

While reading the books, I saw what was in front of me – yet I truly believed that someone could write such a marvelous piece of fiction so intricate and elaborated that you could layer and layer of depth. Guess everything that was thought out to be pure genius, was merely just a happy accident that the author didn’t even realize… and never truly grasp.

So, okay… this was a sidetrack. But seriously, none of the information given in previous books was remotely used in the last two books. These two books can easily be stand-alone books… so there’s a disconnection. But, fuck whatever. This is done.

The movie list is always never ending. Hello, everyone. Still me in Sweden, but will be hitting Madrid in a couple of days – too bad I will be missing the Harry Potter premiere… will probably catch it over the weekend when I get back home.

I saw La Mome, and added new films to my list of films that I wanna watch… check it out here! Cya!

Hej, everyone!

Decided to take time to blog for a little while. It’s been an interesting stay in Sweden until now… Stockholm is pretty awesome. Julyssa is a kick ass tour guide! Who knew Pippi Longstockings was Swedish =P – I loved walking around town… I’ve got an article about this whole trip, including my stay in Solna, Stockholm, Gotland, Visby, Ludvika, and who knows where the wind takes me … :)
