    Loved your McGonagall and Dursley discussions :D

    Chat rooms in Pottermore is a bad idea in my opinion. They always said that Pottermore is not a social site but a reading experience. I really want it to stay that way. It will be more fun as the new books released. I’d like to think,like Eric, that we will learn the shape of our patronuses and which animal shape we’d be taking if we are animagus and so on. 

    For MTV awards, I will not vote everyday. I will do it once or twice but no more than that. If they are awarded I will be happy for them, of course but it is not important for me. I love HP not matter what.

    As a listener of Mugglecast from the first episode, I have to say that I love Selina on Mugglecast.

    I just realized: we’re all saying 2012 is the first year without Harry Potter, but it’s not. The first year without Harry Potter was 2006, in between book 6 and 7 and in between film 4 and 5. The second year without Harry Potter was 2008, post book 7 and in between films 5 and 6 (because those bastards at WB delayed it). So, 2012 is the third year without a Harry Potter.

    Love the ep :D btw, in the description, “how will the Potter series fair?” should be “how will the Potter series *fare?”
