Finally watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2 on the weekend.
Now, I read the final book on the day it was released so it’s not like there were any actual surprises in the story line, but it was still an emotional journey.
Of course, I watched Part 1 again to remind myself where we were up to in the timeline, every death (while not surprising) brought tears.
I had to take a break between viewings, went for a run, pulled myself together.
When I recovered enough I started up the new movie. Very intense, on the edge of my seat for most of it, didn’t even notice the time moving.
Lots of tears, a few cheers and Neville the hero!
Even loved the epilogue. (Might have been my favourite part of the book).
Have to say though, Ginny’s hair was not good.
Love a good epilogue. There is something about saying goodbye to characters you have forged a relationship with and not knowing what happens next. A good epilogue ties everything up and (hopefully) lets you know how ‘ever after’ actually is happy.
Then I went on to pin about 20 Harry Potter references on Pinterest…
Especially liked the ones that compared the female roles in HP to the female roles in Twilight. http://pinterest.com/jamayel/geeking-out/
