Mischief Managed

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 16, 2011, 11:17 PM


What a great end to a wonderful ride.

My movie experience was, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the greatest I have experienced in this lifetime. We arrived at 7 pm for the midnight released and the line was already insane. Characters from every shape and size showed up, as well as other people dressed like we were, Hogwarts Students.

We met. We saw. We conquered. Never before have I felt more at home and comfortable among fans of a series than I did that night. There is something magical about the Harry Potter fandom that just does it. There was no drama, no catty behavior, no expectations and not one thing bad about it. Everyone played trivia in line, people shared candy, basked in the glow of the evening sunshine (and breeze) and shivered whenever the dementors passed by (there were 2 at our theater). But not even those soul suckers could cast a viel of gloom over everyone's excitement and love for a series that molded us all.

The movie itself was phenomenal. The corny jokes, the hints dropped here and there throughout the movie that only those who've read the books could fully appreciate really just...it was so awesome. You could hear people in the theater titter and giggle when those couple moments came up, and it really just put the icing on the cake for me as well. There were cheers, there were many tears, and at the end everyone could feel the glow and the bittersweet moment of realization that the end had come.

I will never let the series die. As many of my fellow fans know, the books and the celebrations, the Weasley sweaters and Hogwarts scarves, the house points and the owls, the platform 3/4 between 9 and 10...it will live on forever.

What Harry Potter did to the globe is unignorable to those who were there in the thick of things, and those who came after, and those who will come in the future. The community it created, the generation who now calls itself the Harry Potter Generation, wont let history forget the enormity and the importance of the little boy with a lightning shaped scar. The boy who lived. We'll never forget what Harry did for us (all of us) individually. He helped us forget the pains of adolescence in a safe way, he helped us remember the importance of loyalty and love, he helped us imagine during a time when imagination was transforming into a computer screen and keys. He reminded us that know-it-alls and hand-me-downs are greater than fame, popularity, and greater than the You-Know-Who's in our lives.

I will never forget to imagine. I will never forget to love. But most importantly, I will never forget that, if a time comes where I ever feel lost, alone, or scared...help will always be given at Hogwarts.

Hogwarts will always be there to welcome me home.

aw you brought tears to my eyes with this.

I had this huge Potter 'farewell' party in planning and then my dad goes and books a holiday in the week it came out here...I was like DDDDDDDDD: WHYYY

Anyway, finally got to go watch today (sadly missing all the pre-movie marathon, sweets and most importantly dress up) and it was AMAZING! Can't wait to go again...

Aww! I'm sorry you had to miss all the pre-show party and dressup. If you lived anywhere near me, I'd dress up like the biggest nerd you ever saw and go with you. :( But at least you got to see it, and it's never too late for a Potter Party! People will be craving something to do/somthing Potter related come December-March ish, so maybe you could get away with throwing one at that time? <3

I know I will be! But...my Potter friends and I always get together sometime in the wintertime to cook Potter meals and read Potter supplement books and do, generally, geeky things!

This is so beautiful and true!
Funny, our group got in front of our theater and did trivia :) I went as Luna Lovegood with a group of 22, each one of us dressed differently! It was good fun. We had a pre/post premier party with butterbeer, chocolate frogs, bertie bots every flavor beans, and wizard duels.
It was definitely an awesome experience. I love the HP fandom so much.

hahah, it was just...so great! We're all sad that it's 'over', but it never really ends. We'll get to share it with our kids or nieces and nephews and family when we're older, and we'll have pottermore soon. Miss you! hope you're well blue, sometimes I see little things that remind me of you c:

Same here Val, I see stuff that reminds me of you ALL THE TIME! For example. I saw a tri colored mouse at the pet store (unfortunately it was a male) and thought immediately of you and Creed. <3

All my love.

bawwwwww that's so cute. You're the best. My friend has a litter of black and white meece and I really want to get one, but my plate is a bit full as far as pets and general life asshattery goes right now. I want one some day though!

They say that you shouldn't have mice and rats at the same time, as a good general rule to go by. Rats will (unfortunately) kill mice, and mice will generally go neurotic if they live in the same airspace (ie. same room) as a rat. So I think that having your plate full with life and pets is a good thing, at least for now!

Ah, thats pretty cool. (I mean, in a fascinating sort of way) I never knew that! They definitely wouldn't be living in the same room. The meece would be in my bedroom, the rats live downstairs with figgy in the sunroom ^^
