I'm replying before I've read the comments before mine. I THOUGHT IT SUCKED! It had none of the charm of the earlier books and it read like a screenplay, not a novel.
Okay. Now I am going to read the comments.
So what do you think about JK Rowlings statement a couple of days ago at a Scholastic Book meeting that Dumbledore is gay? I don't care if he is gay so much, but I really think it is crap to have decided that so long ago and not had the guts to put it in the books. This adding details after the series is finished seems like....cheating...at the very least, it is not cricket. Or Quidditch. I know, I know, in the world of fan fiction, anything the author says at any time must be accepted as canon...but what are we supposed to do withat information??
Yes, I was writing some fan fiction this summer, about a transfer student in year 4 who is Malfoy's cousin, a girl originally from Durmstrang, sent to Hogwarts for her own good. She is in love with Harry, but can't possibly even talk to him. Kind of a Romeo/Juliet thing plus a doppleganger!
Oh...JKR said that Neville marries Hannah Abbot, who is the proprietess of the Leaky Cauldron.
