OOH OOH, WHO MARRIES MALFOY. I'M THINKING PANSY, BUT THAT'S JUST MY GUESS.


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 265 comments We already know who marries Malfoy. Her name is Astoria Greengrass, and is most likely a pureblood.


message 7: by Austin (new)

Austin (ABedolla) wtf!!! who the heck is Astoria Green grass?



Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 265 comments She's a random pureblood. The Malfoys (along with many other pureblood families) don't marry for love. They marry based on their ancestry (inbreds!).

but it is kinda like saying that isn't?!


message 15: by Aegine (new)

Aegine | 125 comments Yeah. I think Today did an interview where they asked some fans to come and ask questions and one of them made that reference. And another asked her if she meant the way Voldemort treats Muggle-borns is based off from the Nazi's way of thinking, concerning the Jews.

huh.......it just seems like it!

I remember reading that interview. She also mentioned that Dumbledore defeating Grindelwald the same year as Hitler was defeated was meant to strenghten that comparison.

Aegine | 125 comments Probably. I noticed that as I rereading it this summer. If I remember right, Krum's from Bulgaria, which is sorta by Hungary-ish area...it's southeast of the Austrian Empire! Anyways, that's where Krum is from right? Why would he go to a school up north? I've looked at some maps and I would guess that Durmstrang would be on the tip of Germany by the sea or on Norway/Sweden. I like to think it's in Germany because of the Hitler/Grindelwald comparision but that's probably not right....


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 265 comments I'm looking for it right now.


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 265 comments Yes, Krum is Bulgarian. Maybe Krum's parents agreed a bit more with the Durmstrang attitude towards dark magic than with the Hogwarts attitude. Considering that Durmstrang is supposed to be north of Hogwarts, Norway or Sweden would make the most sense to me, although I think that Grindelwald was from Germany.


message 25: by Aegine (new)

Aegine | 125 comments Yeah me too. That's one of the questions I'd ask JKR: why did Krum go to Durmstrang? He seems like a nice guy.


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 265 comments Found the links!

http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2...
Go to "find" and search for "1945".

http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2...
Search for "Hitler".


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 265 comments My bad. I posted the wrong link.
http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2...
This is the right one. :)


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 265 comments Well, as far as why Krum didn't go to Hogwarts, I think that the parents have more to do with what school they go to. How many 11-year olds really put much thought into what school they want to go to?

I would totally ask her why Voldy had to die and Harry had to live.


message 32: by Swati , Is not active as of this current moment (new)

Swati  (readerforevergmailcom) | 2208 comments Mod
The answer to that, is probably because all HarryFans would murder her.


message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

yeah..that's why swati.*rolls eyes*

Well think about it. The series have mostly been from Harry's point of view, right? So either she would have to explain the concept of the after-life and thus getting herself into a big huge debate and make her books even more infamous or skirt around the edges, like she did in the epilogue. And another thing: if it was from Harry's point of view, we wouldn't know what might've happened to the other characters. I suppose she could switch perpectives but to whose? And, to me, that wouldn't feel right. I think this is probably the best as it's going to get, SO DEAL WITH IT!

I totally agree. No matter what, you made yourself famous and if you ever become a mod, your fist title, will be, "The Original Pandy" =D

I know. Still. The ending is too happy, even if it was from Harry's perspective. Some of us are VERY VERY angry. OK. fine. I agree with Aegine. But why did she have to kill off any of the characters that I actually LIKED! For example, Dobby, Hedwig, Sirius (I'm not saying voldy cause he's the "bad guy")



message 48: by ♫Huneeya♥ (new)

♫Huneeya♥ | 14 comments i know, its so sad that dobby had to die


message 49: by Aegine (new)

Aegine | 125 comments I know it's sad but she has to show us that war isn't fair (I think someone already said it somewhere) and Hedwig sorta symbolized his innocence and this series is more about growing up than living happily-ever after. Which would you prefer? A book where everything was easy and no one died with no drama or how the book is now: characters going through some tough times, people dying, drama, and action?




message 50: by Tiffany , Is not active as of this current moment but is proud of you guys (new)

Tiffany  (tiffanyyy_wang) | 1972 comments Mod
I know. I like the second choice. It's just that it was annoying that all the ppl that were actually likeable by most (Voldy is villan, no one likes him. Harry is the main character, some like him, some don't.). It just makes me angry that Harry and Hermione can't die and Dobby and Sirius have to die.
