Re: spoilers

Anyway, the point is, that's not the epilogue to Harry Potter. You've been hoodwinked.

Haha, if it is in fact the real book, the idiot left his meta info of his digital camera still attached to each image.

Re: spoilers

If it's the real book. I still don't think it is. I think someone might have too much time on their hands for a hoax.

There's no point arguing over this... it's the same as arguing over the existence of God. I'll just wait to get my copy of the book and read it and then I'll know.

Re: spoilers

So, turns out the book was shipped early by DeepDiscount and some people had got theirs on Tuesday. HMMMMMMMMMMM.. That's scary proof.

Re: spoilers

Ohh. I was wondering why some of the Bittorrent files were so huge.

If that's the case, I'd rather just wait two days and go find a copy purchased by one of many Harry Potter fiends in this world. That seems like much less of a hassle. (I bet all of the library books will be checked out and this small Midwestern town will sell out of the books.)

This is all hogwash of course. I read the entire thing. And there's a gaping error.

Ron says, in regard to Draco Malfoy's son Scorpius, to his daughter Rosie: "Don't get too friendly with him. Granddad Weasely would never forgive you if you married a pure-blood."

Uhm... the Weaselys are pure-bloods. They're just poor, unlike most other pure-bloods. Which, by the way, this supposed epilogue spells it "purebloods" while the books have hyphens. What's up with that?

Also, I found it hard to believe that Neville would become a Professor of Herbology; sure, he loved the subject and was good at it, but to take up a tenure as a school professor when he makes it abundantly clear how much he wanted to be an Auror. And he became much much better at dueling in the Half-Blood Prince, after getting a new wand.

Whoever came up with this clever ruse knew his Harry Potter. But I know it better. Ha ha!


DEBUNKED!
How do those words taste, EC?

Re: spoilers

Salty...

And either Rowling's lost her mind or Ron was only joking. I assure you that the Weasleys are pure-bloods as my copy of Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone says they are. And, as far as the hyphenation goes, maybe that's just a difference in publications between the British and American versions.

Nevertheless, both the above I say are true if my copies of the series are to be considered canon.

So there.

Re: spoilers

Ron doesn't make jokes. He's serious all the time!

Anyway, I guess the Weasleys would no longer be a pure-blood family anymore with the addition of Hermione.

Re: spoilers

HAHAHAHA oh thats gold.

Sorry EC. But you got your arse handed to you.

And the whole thing with Ron saying don't marry a pure blood, was because of the Mudblood hatred that started after Voldemort took over the ministry.

But yes, they are the real pages, that is the real epilogue, and if you read that before reading the book, you missed out on a killer experience.

Trust me though. I don't suck at using the Internet. That was the first thing that came to mind and it was online. Big deal.

I'm sure I could get you with music, but that's just not fair.
OK: After 6 years of searching, I'm still looking for an MP3 or .flac, or.WAV or any damn Winamp-playable format of a vinyl disc titled DANCE AROUND THE WORLD released about 1964 on the DECCA label catalog number DL 75050.

This is a test.
