I want to know why the deaths of all the minor characters effected people so much. I get it, because it happened to me (let's not even get me started on the deaths of Sirius and Lupin). But I wonder if there is some sort of psychological reason.

J. K. Rowling is miraculously good at fleshing out minor characters, that's why.

Well i cried when Dumbledore was killed (on screen and in the book) because he reminded me of my grandpa. It's funny, i barely knew my grandpa, yet I cried more for when he actually died, than i did for either my nan (who i knew too well and hated) and my dad. All i remember was he had a beard like Dumbledore, and left me $250 in his will, which my dad then took and spent. lol I was not happy!

I have Opera, Firefox and Safari. I use Safari more, even though it's shit, because it uses less CPU. :/

I use Firefox too. I tried Chrome once. Downloaded it and opened it...and then it crashed within two minutes. Uninstalled it and returned to Firefox.

Okay, question: Am I the only one here who likes the Snape/Lily thing that JKR had going on? I'm reading loads of fanfiction about it :P

Really? I've been known to have thirty tabs open over two windows on Firefox before and never had a problem. At the moment I have 10.

I found the Snape/Lily thing a little weird, but then in some ways, I never thought much of it before. So...
But there are so many weird fanfics out there. I mean... the Draco/Harry ships are SO wrong! haha

I thought it was sort of cute, when they were younger. Of course, when I think about it when they were teenagers, I think it's a little bit weird, but hey!
