Excerpts

[What I've enjoyed most about Prophecy so far?] The impromptu drabble sessions. I've been to two so far; it's Saturday, so the con's only been going on for two days. Um, but last night and the night before, a group of us have been getting together. Uh, fiona_fawkes has been throwing out really neat prompts and we spend about 15-20 minutes writing and then we just go around the circle and read out what we wrote, and some have been really sad and some really funny. It's been neat.
I really enjoyed [Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows]. Um, I only read it the one time on the weekend, trying to get through it as quickly as I can, just to find out what was going on. I hadn't been spoiled at all, which was miraculous considering how much mainstream media was reporting before the actual release. Um, but it was exciting, it was adventurous... I mean, I had nitpicks, of course. Overall, I really liked it, though.
Can I say, "What epilogue?" Yea. It was, um... I can see the attraction to the everyday, non-fandom reader. That's kind of the ending I think I probably would have liked to have if I wasn't so invested in fandom and so invested in the characters, in wanting something more for them. Um, but in a way, it tied it up nicely for your everyday, average reader who wants a family and a happy ending, and that's pretty much what we got. But yea, I'm still ignoring it.
