Some Excerpts

I read Half-Blood Prince and I was just sort of blown away, so I went online ... [and] stumbled across some scary-bad fanfiction, thought "hm, won't do that again," and then I read Shocolate's Believe that Magic Works. And just thought, that's just fantastic, because I loved how it was like, a way of presenting a theory, but in a story. And I just thought it was brilliant, so I went looking and discovered LJ and I think Checkmated, and then The Quidditch Pitch. ... Actually, it was Proxy by Matilda Bishop[3] that took me to LJ, and I was anonymous in the commenting until someone poked me and said "Oy, you, get an account," and so I did.
[How would you change DH?] You mean apart from Harry and Ron end up shagging? ... Seriously, it would be--I really wish that she had tied in more resolution with the Slytherins. I think that was the only thing that really disappointed me, that they were still sort of off to the side, I thought. I was really looking forward to some resolution--some of them displaying that they were there because of characteristics, but they weren't evil. And that was a bit disappointing.
I have a very strong picture of them [Harry, Ron, and Hermione] in my head, and it's not at all [the actors]. I mean, I adore Dan, I want to just carry him about in my pocket forever, and Rupert--well, don't get me started ... No, they're not who I have in my head. Emma is like, she's not even--yeah. ... She's just not Hermione, is she? Not even close.
