It’s human nature to press at the boundaries of stories, to scrabble at the edges, to want to know what’s going on just out of range of the camera. Fan fiction teems with prequels and sequels, missing scenes restored and plot holes patched. It retells canonical stories from new points of view — the reverse-angle instant replay. How did the events of The Prisoner of Azkaban look from Neville Longbottom’s perspective? Moaning Myrtle’s? Mrs. Norris’? “To say that a story stops after we close a book is absurd,” says Maltese. “To say that we can think certain things about a story or what might happen next in a story or what might have happened if someone had turned left instead of right but that we can’t write them down is absurd.” (via)

Let’s discuss: The Deathly Hallows Part 2 Premiere in London
Somebody hold me. How is J.K. Rowling even breathing right now? I can barley form words to describe my feelings and I’m only looking at pictures through a stupid computer screen. Does anybody with a rocket ship want to fly me out to London ASAP? Because, I mean, have you seen Matthew Lewis? Yeah, that is not the Neville Longbottom we thought we knew, but always loved. And then, they’re all hugging and crying and making speeches and looking all amazing. The internet is a dangerous place for serious Harry Potter Fans today. One click of your mouse can lead to instantaneous uncontrollable crying.
Anyone who had to spend time being productive with the use of a computer that has an Internet connection today didn’t accomplish anything, because when you see links to photos like this one, and this one, and this one, you can’t not click them. You just can’t not. And then you do, and you melt. You melt into a big huge puddle of Harry Potter Mush.
My heart, it weeps.
~Harry Potter forever and always.~
