    Feeds was pretty... Bad for me. But Tonks and Lupin are definitely top spot.

    I was shocked with Snapes, and then his memories made me cry out my eyes.

    JKR had a semi-unique opportunity to literally have an audience grow up with her books.

    There is a reason why the deaths of Tonks and Lupin and everyone else who bought it will be more effecting than, say, anyone I ever kill in any of my books: Years and years of fandom and enjoyment, most of them in the formative years of the reader's lives.

    In other words, JKR got LUCKY...and then USED IT WELL.

    Anyone can get lucky, but only a smart and clever person can use it to the full effect.

    And JKR did!

    I can't believe they died. WHY WHY WHY?! Why couldn't Harry have died? lol jokes. I wonder what would have happened if he had, and Voldymoldy had won and he ran the school? Hmmm... that's like a whole new world someone should invest in writing!

    I had an idea to write something from the bad dudes POV. Or someone like Snape was.

    Fun stuff.

    When i first saw part 2, i actually cried out "NO!" literally a second before voldemort hit that spell on Snape. lol I was like "oops, did i say that out loud?" hahaha
    But I cried in the book and I cried to the film. Alan Rickman deserved an Oscar for that performance as well as the memories scene!

    I had an idea!

    A group of nerdy high schoolers are cosplaying at a local comic con when an alien invasion knocks the world on it's back...and their costumes are so convincing that the aliens take them for other extraterrestrials and try to kill them. But when they realize they're just a bunch of kids in a costume, they suddenly have a brill idea.

    See, the invasion wasn't exactly popular in the galaxy - being launched on false pretenses - and so they have the kids dress up again and pose as the "evil dictators" that were running the Earth, which they have now "liberated".

    Can our heroes get the truth out on the galactic scene without being vaporized?

    I was inspired by Galaxy Quest!

    If you even slightly like science fiction - especially Star Trek - then you kind of need to see this movie.

    And even if you don't, it has ALAN RICKMAN!

    I LOVED Galaxy Quest, but from what I remember, it didn't do that well on the cinema. It's like... the funniest spacey movie ever. IMO.

    I love Alan Rickman, but in some ways, ever since he started playing Snape, I can't help but relate the role with everything else he's played in since. Either he actually plays them similar, or it's just my ears deceiving me. Then again, he does have that kind of voice, doesn't he? *waits for silence* lol

    Alan Rickman is incredible. I don't think anyone could have done as great a job with Snape as him.

    Sorry.

    Yes.

    I cried. A lot.

    GO READ THE BOOKS. RIGHT NOW. NOW. SERIOUSLY.

    Lupin and Tonks are the only deaths that my brain still hasn't accepted. I cried so hard...

    You know, if Harry was using D&D rules, this would be simpler...it's only 1,000 gold pieces to resurrect someone.
