As per Oath's request:


Chapter #1: The Dark Lord Ascending

1st sentence: "The two men appeared out of nowhere, a few yards apart in the narrow, moonlit lane."


Talk about cliche.... rolleyes.gif

ahem
SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS



'K now that's outta the way the book is massive phailure. Reasons why you ask
Hedwig
Moody
That minister guy with an unspealable name
Lupin
Tonks
Fred
Bellatrix Lestrange
but mostly SNAPE
She killed off all of them and I know there is a lot I'm missing. They made the book good.What was the thought process behind this? I know as if the book isn't massivly cliche enough let's kill off every major character in here that is moderatly unique including our only anti-hero Snape. And while we are at it let's only mention six or seven characters we have seen before in the final chapter.

Hey, if you're going to kill anyone off, why not in the finale? It's not like they've got to be around any longer.

Yeah but strip them all away and you're left with a book more cliche then anything you ever really want to read... And besides my three favorite characters left after the sixth book are on the list. Why not kill Harry it would be good to see the downfall of fantasy clicheness in this book.

Personally, I was sort of hoping that just about everyone would die in this book, Definitely Harry included.

I can't believe they killed off Fred, Lupin, and Tonks. You don't enough have enough time to feel bad for them before the book ends.

And Draco's son's name is SCORPIUS? Christ, they might as will named their daughter Vipera and their cousin Cruciatus and Abdiel.

I finished in an hour and twenty minutes. So no one's death really affected me strongly I'm a speed reader. Last I checked I could read 800 words a minute... as a freshman. I have only got better. I could read college grad. level books in fourth grade. Strange thing is I can't spell worth a shit. Strange no? Back on topic though those deaths pissed me off more then most of what I read. Lupin/Tonks deserved so much better then off page deaths. And Fred... he just shouldn't of died.

How can people be upset with these deaths, I can sort of understand the frustration with Lupin's of-screen death, but imho nowhere near enough people died. This is fucking Voldemorts army, and Voldemort himself, half the school should of died, at least. These are just kids, fighting a death cult made of murderers.

I was pleased, I think that is what she wanted you to feel. Frustration at why she did it and that you had no control, get accross the point this is voldemorts fucking army. Overall I was happy with the book but I was also sad it was done.

Edit
Also happy it was done tongue.gif
