Overheard somewhere today that HP7 will be out in July. So I did a google search and picked wiki to read as the best way to have the news summed up for me. :P
Anyway, not in that fandom anymore. And certainly not expecting much out of it. But a couple of citings on the wiki article that got my attention...
"There's no University for Wizards."
Why am I not surprised...
"Questioner: There’s an important kind of redemptive pattern to Snape. "Rowling: He, um, there’s so much I wish I could say to you, and I can't because it would ruin. I promise you, whoever asked that question, can I just say to you that I'm slightly stunned that you've said that and you'll find out why I'm so stunned if you read Book Seven. That's all I’m going to say."
Sounds like she's going to go the route of Snape really as evil. Boo... unless the bad guys win, in which case yay.
"I can completely understand, however, the mentality of an author who thinks, well, I'm going to kill them off because that means there can be no non-author-written sequels'"
Well, if after all this time with the fanfic-dom online and she still hasn't learned... well, can't say much to that.
On another subject... any mentions of GW on any that wanking community lately?
