A scene that always makes you laugh:
When Arwen’s dying. In the extended edition where Merry and Pippin are drinking the water in Fangorn and they become taller. They’re too precious not to laugh! ♥
Um… so I have to write you this letter because it’s part of a challenge, but you’ve probably already received your usual letter. (It might have been delayed- I had to switch owls, and this new one is a complete idiot. Sorry).
It is… 6:20 in the evening here, which means that it’s 11:20 over at the Burrow. I hope you’re having fun visiting with the Weasleys; I send my love and hugs. ♥
I really don’t know what else to say, as I’ve already said it all previously… Have a safe trip back over the pond- don’t splinch yourself.
Love you lots and miss you!!
Least favourite sound/sound effect:
This one’s another no-brainer. The sound the Rinwraiths/Nazgul make. That shrieking or squealing or whatever the hell kind of noise they make is completely unnerving and it makes me cringe. I would hate to hear it in person. Let us leave it at that.
Thank you for being the one person that I have absolutely no doubts about. You are AWESOME. Perhaps even AWESOMER than just AWESOME.
Everyone loves you, you’re the guy everyone wants to be friends with… You’re just SUPER cool, and I think you know it. ;)
I don’t know what more can be said, because bottom line, you’re a fantastic friend. ♥
And an awful lot of running to do.” —‘An Awful Lot of Running’ - Chameleon Circuit
Favourite scene in Elvish:
Any scene that Arwen isn’t in. ;)
Shadowfax is made of awesome epicness. A couple friends and I were talking about him the other night- in RotK when the Witch King confronts Gandalf and Pippin, Shadowfax just hangs around and watches. One of them said something to the effect of ‘Why didn’t he run away? Any horse would run away from that thing!’ to which I replied ‘Because Shadowfax is AWESOME.’
And he is. ♥
First off, are you still headmistress? I’m really hoping you are- next to Professor Dumbledore you’re the best one for the school. Anyway… I’ll keep it short, because I know you’re extremely busy with running the school and all (and if you’re not, write me back and I’ll tell you a story or something).
You are easily one of the best professors at Hogwarts. Easily. I know you’ll tell me that all of your staff are wonderful, but that’s not entirely true. You have a passion for teaching, and by demanding the best of your students (even though they really don’t like it), you ensure that they become the best of people… Let’s exclude most Slytherins from that statement.
Do you still have houses at Hogwarts? I think it would be nice if everybody just integrated together, and maybe got sorted purely for a place to stay. (So not all of those cunning people would be locked together in the dungeons- just sayin’).
Stay awesome, Professor McGonagall!
Oh, you… There are so many things that I would love to say to you, but I’d rather do it in-person. A letter seems so impersonal. At any rate, I will try to express what I’m thinking through writing… er, typing.
I don’t think a day goes by where I don’t think about something you said or did for an instant and have a brief smile. You are a truly inspirational person whom I love dearly. I think I speak for millions when I say that I wish I were privileged enough to have you as my grandfather.
You help everyone and don’t expect any sort of thanks or recognition whatsoever; you let Harry do the stupidest things, then cover for him… I never used to understand why you did those things, and I probably still don’t entirely, but I have realized that it’s because you love. You have a true love of your life and everyone in it, and for that I commend you.
I mentioned above that you are inspirational: you’ve taught me to be a better person, and sometimes when I do things I stop and ask myself whether or not you would approve of me. Sometimes it’s a ‘no’, so I immediately try to right my wrongs and strive to be like you- a loving, caring and intelligent individual.
I know you’re only sleeping, so perhaps one day I’ll see you when you wake up.
Now that I’ve got your attention, I’m going to say that I’ll be doing both day eleven and day twelve of my ‘Letters to Hogwarts’ challenge and the LOTR meme tomorrow. I’m too tired to think coherently. D:
ARAGORN. Whoa, deja vu- did I say that yesterday, too?! I totally did… whoops. Well, he still IS my favourite man, but I must admit that he and Faramir often fight for that title.
Let’s give Faramir some love. We’ll say he’s my favourite man. ;)
Ms Nymphadora Tonks
So I’m hoping that the owl will find you- I don’t know your exact address and I really don’t give a damn.
You, sir, will stay away from my husband, Remus Lupin, and will keep your ugly mug out of my sight. If I ever catch you lurking around, I will personally come and beat you up with coat hangers and brooms. I jest not.
Hope all is well,
P.S. If needed, I have a lovely straight razor to sharpen.
Favourite member of the Fellowship:
ARAGORN. I’m sorry- did I answer that too quickly? That’s what I thought. Anyway, he’s the epitome of awesome. The hobbitses and co. wouldn’t have made it into a third book/film without him. Arwen had better watch her back…
Now, I could write an entire letter making fun of how you went from a noble Hufflepuff to a sparkly vampire, but I won’t.
I think you were a good example of what a true Hufflepuff is supposed to be (but let’s face it, there really isn’t much to live up to besides trying not to be cunning, brave or smart). You rocked that yellow/black combination like it was actually a nice colour in comparison to the other houses’. And come on- you were totally the best seeker (finder) ‘Puff has ever had.
Ah, who am I kidding? I don’t actually like you enough to write a nice, heartfelt letter. I actually FIND you rather annoying, truth be told.
Best use of magic or supernatural gifts:
Hmm… that’s a tough one. I do love when Gandalf (whoops- almost called him Dumbledore) catches the little moth and gives it a message to deliver. I guess that’ll be my favourite?
Messrs Fred and George,
I don’t know if I can even write you a whole letter, because you’re both pretty much summed up in two words:
P.S. Keep up the tomfoolery.
Film you’ve seen the most times:
That would have to be ‘Fellowship’. I don’t have a detailed explanation for this one…
Forgive me if this letter is exceedingly short- my head is being infiltrated by dozens of wrackspurts, which are what I am writing to tell you about.
I do believe that the world is under attack of these annoying little creatures, and I fear that if nothing is done, it could become a worldwide pandemic of cases of fuzzied heads.
It seems that nowadays people are forgetting even the simplest of things, like how to spell ‘you’, or ‘your’… and in some extremely sad cases, even ‘you’re’ (though that’s always been a bit of a problem if you ask me). Given this, it seems that the wrackspurts are attacking specific parts of the brain; mainly the one that involves how to use proper grammar and spelling.
Luna, if you get this in time, please do what you can. I know you’re an expert on these matters.
Thank you in advance,
Sam (and the rest of the world)
Favourite song (soundtrack or performed onscreen):
Umm… Has to be ‘All Shall Fade’ which is sung by Pippin in RotK. The melody is haunting and beautiful, and the fact that dear, sweet, happy little Pippin is singing it just makes it so much sadder. ♥
When I first heard about you, I hated you. You were stupid to have messed with Tom Riddle’s diary and you know it. You had the ultimate choice to just throw away that book when you first found out what it did, but NO. You just HAD to keep it and Harry just HAD to come and save you.
If you were smart, I do not believe you would be married to Harry Potter today.
I don’t hate you so much anymore, though. Something called A Very Potter Musical came out that makes me enjoy your stupidness.
Go away, though- Just because I don’t hate you doesn’t mean that I like you.
Definitely has to be… Gandalf’s staff! Whether Grey or White, he rocks it epically. Perhaps, though, I prefer the white one a little more, since he whacks Lord Denethor in the face with it in RotK. Kind of makes my life. ;)
My dear Neville,
How are you, first of all? I really hope all is well with Hannah Abbott, though you know that you were really supposed to end up with Luna Lovegood, right? Right. Glad we got that out of the way.
You really surprised me in the end, I must say. I mean, I should have known that J.K. Rowling’s genius had bigger plans for you, but I wasn’t looking at the big picture, and thought very little of you… Actually, that sounds wrong- I mean that I didn’t think you were really going to do anything of consequence, or had the ability to be anything more than a cute, Herbology-loving, misplaced Gryffindor.
But you proved me wrong in the end, didn’t you? Going up there all badass with that sword of Gryffindor and chopping Nagini’s head clean off. I’m proud of you, Neville, I really am. ♥
You’ve always been such a great friend for Harry, Ron and Hermione, as well as countless others (the whole of the DA), and I think, like me, they didn’t entirely appreciate you until the end. But now we do, and only wish we’d seen it sooner.
You’re great, Neville. Never forget it.
- Sam: Hey. Me? Are you there?
- Me: Yeahyeah, whaddayawant? It's like 12:00 on a Monday morning. Can you PLEASE leave me alone?
- Sam: No, Me, no I cannot. Do you know WHY?
- Me: No... why? *yawns*
- Sam: Because *I* have to stay up this late to backup the hard drive, even though I started at SEVEN THIRTY or EARLIER.
- Me: ...
- Sam: NINETEEN DVDs LATER IT IS STILL BACKING UP. THIS COULD TAKE HOURS.
- Me: ...
- Sam: IF YOU DIDN'T PRESS 'STOP BACKUP' EVERY TIME IT ASKED YOU TO BACK IT UP, THIS WOULD NOT HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!! *rage*
- Me: ... zZzZzZzzzzzzzz.
- Sam: *facepalm*
Anything that Merry and Pippin conjure up. They’ve always got some sort of food with them and make a crazy-awesome meal out of it. Plus that epic feast from the Isengard storeroom (extended edition DVD) was just pure awesomeness.
I’d like to start this off as honestly as possible. When you were in years one to five, I thought you were an ass. That was when I was naïve and still believed in what Harry was doing. After the end of his fifth year, though, you can imagine how much my opinion of him changed.
I don’t think it was fair of Voldemort to assign you such an awful task as murdering Dumbledore, and I did feel quite bad for you that year. I mean, I hated you for having to, but at the same time I felt sorry that you were required to bear such a burden. Anyway, I’m glad Professor Snape did it for you, but come on- now he’s the bad guy.
All in all, I don’t think you’re a bad kid. As Harry’s godfather Sirius once said, ‘You are not a bad person. You’re a very good person who bad things have happened to’. I think that holds true in your position, Draco. While you could have chosen a different path, your entire family would have been against you, and you would probably be dead right now. I know you’re good, deep down- you just have to give the ‘light’ side a chance.
