Hey Jamie, are you american? You can't be British cos then you'd know that we have a HUGE Chinese community here in the UK. And of course all the young generation speak with one of the British accents cos they are 2nd or 3rd generation here. And well, of course there are an abundance of gorgeous, pretty Chinese girls here . Plus saying 'A chinese' is so insulting. You ( or your friend) have been really insulting to the chinese community. ...by the way, I'm not chinese, just not xenophobic.
I think it's a real shame that Cho isn't in the PoA movie. But msgs say she will be in film 4 - has to be doesn't she.
Anyway, onto book 5. [B}I'm mourning for Sirius The a hole left inside me that will take a few days more to get over I'm sure ( I finnished it a week ago). Bit SAD or what - feeling an empty space for a fictious character. But I did soooo love Sirius. A great character, and traumatic for Harry to lose him. I wonder why he 'had to die'? I'm sure JKR didn't just add a death in for dramatic reasons. - there must be some reason for the furture plot. Maybe Harry will have to struggle with becoming embittered.
[ by the way, I'm not quite so devastated as I was by Tara's death - good few of you on here must be Buffy fans???'>
I'm really sure that Sirius is not going to return, and he really IS dead. JKR SAID a character woukd DIE, and that they WILL NOT come back - as in ressurection. Though I agree that Harry may have contact with a shadow of Sirius, for advice etc, through a portrait, etc. Not the mirror though - he tried that and it didn't work, and anyway, he's broke it now. Someone said that the character that will have a large role in book 7 is Lupin and not Sirius, and that we've got the rummor wrong...???
I loved book 5. Loved Umbridge & the put downs/ revenge from McGonagall, the twins & in the forest. Loved the way Dumbledore showed a bit of power when escaping from his office. However, I do have a bit of a problem with what happened in the department of mysteries after Dumbledore arrived. He got most of the Death Eaters rounded up, and yet couldn't've at the same time have stunned Bellatrix?? Or how come Lupin couldn't have given Sirius a helping hand rather than just sorting out Neville's twitching legs? It just seemed that Sirius's death could have been avoided, and so I agree with cedric wannabee that the fight wasn't choreographed real well.
Y'know, I'm left feelin like Harry - that shouldn't have happened!!!!!
By the way, there is obviously no monitoring on this msg board if people like Brian are allowed to post those foul offensive comments. He MUST be a teenager surely! That still doesn't justify his bizzare and yet [Bad Word] awful, hate filled, offensive, homophobic, ableist ( i.e. prejudiced against those with disabilities) rant. And there is no such thing a s a slut - it's a male constuct - so that makes your insult of Cedricwannabee's mother completey invalid. By the way, I'm a dyke - what u wanna do about it eh??!! Such bigots as u Brian should be thrown off msg boards - gtho u might be welcome on a neo-[Bad Word] one....
p.s. Tonks is cool! I relate cos I have pink spiky hair & live in London. Which I could change my hair so easily!
SORRY THST THIS IS SO LONG!!!! IT IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE POSTED ANYTHING ON A MSG BOARD SINCE I FINNISHED BK 5 AND I'M GOING AWAY NOW....BYE
