In case anyone wasn't sure...

liret just called to inform me that she saw a copy of DH that was accidentally put out early in a bookstore.

It is in the New Haven Train Station, if anyone wants one.

And in case anyone wants to know for sure whether the carpet copy is real,

It is.

Hee, I am so glad!

The wank that attempts to disparage its veracity is hilarious, though. IT IS ALL A PLOT BY SCHOLASTIC. THEY MIGHT NOT HAVE SOLD ENOUGH BOOKS WITHOUT A PUBLICITY STUNT FEATURING A FAKE BOOK. Or something.

I don't fucking get how, like, EVERYONE following the spoiler communities seems to hate the while ALL the huge HP fans I know adore it so far. Or at least think it's much better than HBP. I don't know what the deal is with these people except that maybe they weren't hugged enough as children and they just hate the world so much that they want to spew vitriol at everything.

Man, reading some of those page scans makes me glad I never read any of the Harry Potters past Prisoner of Azkaban. I'm not pissed about any of the character spoilers, but seriously... The writing is just horrid in comparison to the ones I remember reading. I mean, was she too distracted by the publicists slobbering all over her in anticipation of their next cash cow or what?

This one was much better than the last one. The writing is tight up through Goblet of Fire, but I think they gave her more editorial control, which was a mistake.

TOTALLY AVOIDS THE COMMENTS LIKE THE PLAGUE

I read the "It is." and my stomach just dropped in this aching, it-is-really-almost-over-and-you've-read-some-of-the-book-already-omg-its-almost-over-what-are-you-going-to-do-without-harry-potter-you-have-to-avoid-all-spoilers-until-tomorrow-night sort of way.

I don't want this to be over, even if the opening of the last movie is going to be so bad ass it will melt all of our brains because our inner fangirls that we repress when we are in the "real world" will take over and start shouting "SEE EVERYONE! THIS IS WHY HP IS SO AWESOME AND YOU HAVE BEEN FOOLS FOREVER FOR THINKING IT WAS SOMETHING SILLY AND JKR IS READING FANFIC BECAUSE WHY ELSE WOULD SHE PUT ALBINO PEACOCKS AT LUCIUS' HOUSE AND OPEN THE BOOK WITH A DEATH EATER BOARDROOM MEETING WHERE SNAPE IS AT HIS ABSOLUTE BEST AND YOU HAVE VOLDE BASICALLY GOING "YOUR FIRED!" TO THE MUGGLE STUDIES TEACHER THAT HAS BEEN WRITTEN ABOUT IN FANON SINCE THE BEGINNING. ASLK;NEASNSADL;NDED."

I apologize for my outburst, but I am a Lion and it can't be helped.

There is actually something in there that I used in one of my fics. And I don't think I've seen anywhere else. It made me squee.

Quick question, not looking @ other comments, but dying to know if you do know and bought a copy

Does Lupin, Hagrid, or Madeye die?

XD

I don't want to know anything else, but I do want to know if one of my 3 favorites is gonna kick it.

Re: Quick question, not looking @ other comments, but dying to know if you do know and bought a copy

Lupin dies. Mad-Eye vanishes and presumably dies but it's up to speculation and Hermione remains convinced he didn't.

How the hecks were you all able to read the first page of chapter 3 on the carpet version. I was going cross-eyed trying and still couldn't get through it =/

HAhaha I didn't, I just ignored it.

OMG w/e!!!1 Srsly, thai jst puthm n bokstors sou wll thnk iz reel. Srsly!! Iz cnsprcy, frlz.

i didn't read the carpet leak just because i looked at some of the files and they're really hard to see.
still...i'm mad that remus dies. not remus! :(

WEOOOOO I KNEW IT. SHAZAAM!!!

The one thing I'm slightly confused about, though I might have to read the book again, is how, if Draco ran off with the Elder wand in HBP after disarming Dumbledore, did the wand then get into Dumbledore's grave? Why didn't Snape just take it from Draco?

Did he run off with it? What exactly happens in HBP?
