Chapter 10: Kreacher’s Tale
Harry wakes in the morning and goes exploring around Grimmauld Place. He finds Sirius’ room, decorated with all his Gryffindor stuff and pictures of the Marauders. He also finds a bit of a letter on the floor from Lily to Sirius, saying 1 year-old Harry loved the toy broomstick for his birthday. She also mentions Bathilda Bagshot (in Godric’s Hollow) keeps coming by to tell them stories about Dumbledore that he probably wouldn’t want them hearing. The letter abruptly ends because it was torn. Harry can’t find any other pages of it. Finally Hermione and Ron come yelling for Harry, as they had awoken and found him gone. Harry wants to go to Godric’s Hollow to talk to Bathilda Bagshot about Dumbledore and his parents, but Hermione says he knew Dumbledore and they have to press on. On the way downstairs, Harry spies Regulus’s room and on the door it says “Do Not Enter Without the Express Permission of Regulus Arcturus Black.” The Trio gets to the place we all got last book in realize that RAB from the locket is Regulus. They search his room, but don’t find the locket. The Trio gets to another place we all got in realizing that the locket nobody could open from OOTP is the locket. They go to find Kreacher to ask him about it. (more…)

Chapter 6: The Ghoul in Pajamas
Mad-Eye’s death leaves the house in a somber mood for days. Harry tells Ron and Hermione he only need stay there for 4 more days (until his birthday and the trace on underage magic is off him) and then they can leave. Ron reminds him they have to stay for Bill and Fleur’s wedding, so it’s actually 5 days. He also warns Harry that Molly has been cornering them to find out what they are leaving to do, so he should be on the look out. Sure enough, she corners him later that day. She finally backs off, but Harry notices suddenly that she has him, Ron and Hermione so busy doing wedding chores that they never have time to discuss their plan. Sneaky, that Molly.

Harry also notices Order members coming and going. Arthur explains that when Dumbledore died, all the Order members became secret-keeper for Grimmauld Place, so Snape could tell Voldemort. Therefore the Burrow is the new headquarters. Mad-Eye also set up a few curses at Grimmauld for Snape. They should keep him out or bind his tongue if he tries to talk about it, but they can’t be 100% sure. Bill also tells Harry that they haven’t been able to locate Mad-Eye’s body. Sad. (more…)

Here we are! The moment’s arrived!

Chapter 1: The Dark Lord Ascending
This chapter dawns with Snape meeting with the Death Eaters and Voldemort at Malfoy Manor. Snape informs them that his source has said the Order is moving Harry from his aunt and uncle’s house this coming Saturday at nightfall. Yaxley argues that it actually isn’t until July 30th, but Snape says they are trying to lay a false trail inside the Ministry because the Order believes it has been infiltrated. Voldemort also comments that the head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, Thicknesse, is Imperioused and can keep an eye on Harry’s house and means of magical transportation and then he demands a wand from someone and ends up taking Lucius’s.

Voldemort then asks if Severus recognizes the guest, which is a revolving body hoisted in the air above the long dinner table. Draco is unable to look at her. (The first time I read this, I was SURE it was McGonagall and I started prematurely crying.) We learn that it’s Charity Burbage, the Muggle Studies teacher (kind of a cop-out to kill off someone we’ve never met before, Rowling.) And then Voldemort kills her and gives her to Nagini to eat. Yuck. (more…)

Chapter 25: The Seer Overheard
Harry and Ginny are dating and everything is sunshine and puppies. Hermione is still on Harry about the dodge HBP, showing him a photo of a girl named Eileen Prince. Harry says he can just tell it’s not a girl and she says that he doesn’t think a girl would be clever enough. Harry is stung, asking how can he have hung around Hermione for 5 years and not think girls are clever? Hermione runs off to investigate further.

Harry gets a note telling him to come to Dumbledore’s office as quick as he can. On the way he bumps into Trelawney, who has been expelled from the Room of Requirement by someone who is already in there. She heard someone celebrating, whooping it up. Harry tells her she should tell Dumbledore. She bristles, saying he won’t listen to her no matter how many times she pulls the lightning-struck tower in her tarot spreads. But Harry convinces her.

Chapter 20: Lord Voldemort’s Request
Harry and Ron are allowed to leave the hospital wing. On their way to breakfast with Hermione they run into a small girl in the 7th floor corridor and help her pick up the scales she drops. Hermione also informs Harry that Ginny and Dean are fighting, which cheers him. Luna passes by and gives Harry a note about another appointment with Dumbledore.

That night, Harry arrives at Dumbledore’s office to find Trelawney threatening to leave if that “nag” doesn’t stop teaching Divination too. Dumbledore reveals to Harry that she would be in great danger outside Hogwarts because it was she who made the prophecy so many years ago. Dumbledore gets a great little throwaway line in, “Divination is turning out to be much more trouble than I could have foreseen, never having studied the subject myself.” Snerk. That Dumbledore.

Hello all [shuffles feet nervously].  Haven’t been around much lately.  But last summer we did an awesome Harry Potter series and then I couldn’t finish it because work got to be too much.  This summer, seeing as how I am jobless, that is not a problem.  And I also happen to be rereading the Harry Potter series for the first time since last summer (so I haven’t read Deathly Hallows except for the night it came out.)  It occurred to me the other night that I never did finish these, so I’m going to now.  Here is where we left off.

Chapter 16, A Very Frosty Christmas
The boys are at The Burrow and Harry fills Ron in about Snape and Malfoy while they help make dinner (Hermione is at her house for Christmas break).  Ron is stunned to hear Snape made an Unbreakable Vow, telling Harry that if you break your vow, you die.  Fred and George tried to get him to make one when he was five and Arthur found them and went crazy.  It’s the only time he’s ever been as angry as Molly.

holly - christmassy shitEvery week, leading up to Jebus’ birthday, I am going to be pulling a couple choice lines out of a long-lost DeadOn Liveblog that never saw the light of day. The game is simple… After the post each week, post your guesses as to what the movie is that we liveblogged.

We had some good guesses last week, but nothing correct. So here are another 5 lines from the liveblog to help narrow down the movie.

Jukeboxhero: Not Kobra Kai material

Andrea: I like it when it hurts a little

Jerkwheat: how do you watch my sex tape? I filmed it in b&w to make it seem classier?

LidleFlightClass: like seriously though. Man Who to Fell Earth. David Bowie bites a girl in the ass while having sex with her

CDNMoose: The disfigured men of NAMBLA loved this movie

I think this is probably the last week to make guesses, and I’ll post the actual liveblog sometime next week. So have at it and try to crack the puzzle!

We are going to start with the first five lines, in no particular order.

CDNMoose: GLORY HOLE! x2!

Andrea: fellate himself?

Jerkwheat: he wants taco flavored kisses

Jukeboxhero: This is what goes on at guantanamo

AthleticSupporter: *imagines joey harrington and michael vick playing piano together… kinda like in “big” *

Also… once the correct porn movie is guessed I will post the funnied-up liveblog.

Survivor: Tornadoes! Friday, October 19, 2007

So, some pretty nasty storms blew through northwest Indiana tonight (or “Michiana,” as the locals call it.  Drives me fucking nuts.)   There were driving winds, tons of rain, golfball-sized hail, and tornadoes.  I spent a good chunk of the evening in the basement of the dorm with 200 girls all huddled around the TV hoping the news would go back to “Grey’s Anatomy.”  Kill me.  That show blows now.  My TIVO only recorded intermittent “Survivor,” so here’s what I got:

Based on previews and the fact that people were all mixed around, the tribes swapped members.  I believe Fighting Tiger got Aaron and James and Flying Dragon got Sherea and Frosti.  Based on a clip of tribal, it seems like Jaime and PG threw the challenge so they could vote off a newbie.  That……really does not sit well with me.  That kind of sucks.  And based on the exit interview, Aaron went home.  That’s all I got.  Ya know what I don’t got?  Tivo of “Survivor,” “CSI” or “The Office.”  BAH!

Previously, some stuff happened.  Back from Tribal, we learn that JR’s “game plan” is starting to kick in.  He says his work ethic has improved now that he’s past last night’s vote.  He says Courtney is going home next for sure.  She calls him a “cocky son of a bitch” when he raises his voice to tell her not to grab a hot pot.  Oh fuck them both.  Seriously.  I am so over these two.

Over at Fighting Tiger, they discover their rice is wet and moldy.  Ew.  We see an interview with Erik (WHO?) about separating the rice.  Dave starts in on Sherea and she snaps and it is AWESOME.  He’s such a dick.  He says she’d have grounds to say those things if she did stuff around camp.  She goes to toss some shells away (not sure why) and he goes running after her because he was saving them for his mom (not sure why).  She talks about how condescending he is and I gotta say, I’m siding with Sherea.  Frosti and Dave go swimming and Frosti counsels him to be nicer to the people he’s “leading.”  Frosti interviews that Crazy Dave may have worn out his welcome.  Well, he certainly has with ME.

We get previouslies where Jean-Robert is a big ol’ slacker; Leslie cries for Jesus; boobies are pixelated; Jaime gives Leslie the clue, who promptly tells Todd like a giant retard; Dave makes a fireplace; Flying Dragon wins and Ashley is sent home. Who will go home from Fighting Tiger…….TONIGHT?

Back at Flying Dragon, Jean-Robert’s snoring is gross and ridiculous and he’s trying to snuggle up on people and they don’t like it. It’s understandable because he’s disgusting. Leslie says, “Maybe it’s the silk shirt and the no underwear.” Heh. All the women interview that they really don’t like him. He says he needs to be warm, but God. Read a room, dude.

Previously, Chicken was just too funky for these folks and was sent packing. Tonight, we’re back with Fighting Tiger the morning after Tribal.  We don’t seen any grieving for Chicken; instead, we see Smarmy, Condescending Dave addressing the rest of the tribe like they are mentally-challenged 5 year-olds.  He has his ideas about the shelter and they better fall in line.  We get a talking head with a guy I swear they just flew in for this episode; where was he last week?  His name might be Erik.  (more…)

In a new feature here at DeadOn (and because I just got the SBTB DVDs) I thought I would take us all back to the Saturday mornings of our childhood. Well, most of our childhoods. I’ve discovered that anybody born between about 1976-1983, give or take, tends to have really fond memories of the gang from Bayside. So I’m going to start bringing you two recapped episodes every Saturday morning. We’re working chronologically based on the production codes of each episode because that is how they were filmed and intended to be broadcast. Join me today after the jump for “King of the Hill” and “Fatal Distraction.”

I want to be mindful of spoilers because I know people aren’t done with the book, but I finished around 6 am this morning and am leaving for the weekend shortly. However, I’ve thrown a post up at Andrea’s Atrium that is SPOILER-LADEN and for discussion. If you’ve read the ENTIRE BOOK, head on over there.

Hermione’s Helping Hand sees Harry receive his ordered Potions book, but he switches the covers with the old one and keeps the “old one” that looks new, putting the new one that looks old back in the cabinet.  Hermione also reads at breakfast that Stan Shunpike, from the Knight Bus, has been arrested on suspicion of Death Eater activity.  Harry cannot believe it and Hermione says the Ministry must be trying to look like they are at least doing something.

Sorry these aren’t going to be very good this week.  Real life keeping me busy as a bee.  So, I’ll do quick summaries and you guys can feel free to discuss stuff.  Spoilers can stay here, I don’t think anybody is reading HBP for the first time anymore.  Friday cannot get here fast enough, guys.

Draco’s Detour sees Harry stay at the Weasleys until it’s time to go to Diagon Alley for school supplies.  When they go, Mr. Weasley tells them how Florean Fortescue at the ice-cream place and Ollivander the wand-maker have both been dragged off, probably by Death Eaters.  They all go to visit the twins’ jokeshop and it is AWESOME.  They’ve come up with some really advanced magic, even Hermione is impressed.  Harry spots Draco Malfoy through the window, hurrying off somewhere and he dons the Cloak with Hermione and Ron to follow Draco.

Here we are gang!  Last book!  As of my writing this sentence, we are 8 days, 2 hours and 16 minutes from the release of Deathly Hallows.  EEEEEE!

The Other Minister begins our final book by taking us to the Prime Minister of England’s office.  One of his portraits tells him that he is going to have a meeting with Cornelius Fudge.  The minister remembers the other visits he has received from Fudge since joining office.  Their first meeting, another one with something to do with a escaped convict named “Serious” and various other meetings over the last couple years.  This time, Fudge appears to tell the minister about how the Brockdale Bridge collapse was no accident, the “hurricane” was actually damage from rampaging giants, and the Bones and Vance murders were committed by Lord Voldemort.  Fudge also tells him that he has been sacked as Minister of Magic and introduces his replacement, Rufus Scrimgeour.  They tell the minister they’ll keep him posted and they vanish.

Beyond the Veil has the 6 kids surrounded by Death Eaters. When Harry demands to know where Sirius is, they taunt him about not knowing the difference between a vision and reality. Harry realizes that they want the sphere in his hand, the “prophecy,” and he stalls them to give himself time to think. He asks what the prophecy says and why Voldemort wants it so badly and Lucius and Bellatrix taunt him about Dumbledore never telling him that the reason he has his scar was hidden in the Department of Mysteries. The prophecy is why Voldemort tried to kill him as a baby. Harry finally gets them talking about how Voldemort tried to get Sturgis and Bode to steal it, then he yells “NOW!” and all the kids bellow “REDUCTO” at the shelves full of spheres, sending hundreds of them smashing to the floor. They all run for it. (more…)

Order of the Phoenix was SO GOOD.  SO.  GOOD.  Unbelievable, I loved it and can’t wait to see it again.  Run, do not walk, to see this movie.  The ending was so fantastic that it made up for some of my favorite stuff from the book that they cut.

Also, the final chapters of OotP recap will be up after I get off work…..that I have to be at in 5 hours.
