Meh. I don't see much point to this. The writing seemed pretty amateur - I don't remember the series being like this - and it didn't contribute to plot or even worldbuilding. James and Sirius sassing the Muggle law; par for the course. There might be an interesting story in here somewhere, but it isn't this scene.

Props for the whole auctioning for charity thing, though; that's nice.

Choco You're right, you're right and now I'm looking at my rating thinking, "You're lying to yourself, woman. LYING."
*hides in shame*


Anila It's okay. There's no shame in fangirling.

Except when you're trolling. But you're not trolling, Palice, so no shame!

Trolling is a different sort of thing. I would argue that fangirling and trolling are mutually exclusive - trolls can be fangirls, but their trollish posts are not fangirling (or I guess fanboying in some cases) because they're so often not about the book at all but personal attacks on the reviewer.
Except for those trolls who think a good comment is "well i luved it" which is about halfway to fangirling but without any real heart.
