heidi: (No Actual Spoilers)
[personal profile] heidi
I got a copy of the Carpet Book on July 16, and I read it on the 17th (it took a while to DL and extract) while YMing with a friend. Some of the bits of that conversation follow:

HT: Can I ship albus/gellert? Please?
SV: I'm sure you won't be the only one.

HT: Regulus was wonderful!
HT: But my god this is slow......
SV: Regulus didn't show up! He was just a story. *sad*
SV: I wanted him to be real.
HT: I know.
HT: But he is, for me.
HT: I want to go back to his story, the one I started back in
2001. Maybe I will....
SV: I mean, I wanted him to be alive.
HT: I know.
HT: Fucking inferi.

SV: My god, Heidi. After this, really and honestly....no more canon.
SV: No more Lupin.
HT: Wow.
SV: No chance of Sirius coming back...
HT: Wibble.
HT: That's why we have imaginations and AU's
SV: Yeah, but it's never really the same.

SV: Nothing new yet cept the epilogue, but don't read it, it
spoils the rest of the book.
HT: I know
HT: Remus gets dead, doesn't he?
SV: That actually isn't mentioned.
HT: Is it presumptive?
SV: Though I would say from some of the references in the
epilogue that he miiiiight be.
HT: Ok, thanks. I can live with that.
HT: Because? Wedding bonding? Is for life only.

HT: You know what I boggle at?
HT: Wizarding Law.
HT: The wizarding world just took it onto themselves to TAKE
the pottersl home and enshrine it
HT: Did anyone pay Harry for the taking?
SV: Well, if it was a rental property it might have been sold
to the gov't.
SV: What boggles me more is how vague the rest of the
government structure is.
HT: I mean, there's a value to the land. Technically
HT: [/real property]

SV: You're going to love ch 33
HT: Coool.
HT: Is regulus snogging barty in it?
SV: Better. Want to know?
HT: Not yet.

HT: Ok, I'm in snape's memories
HT: Oh love.
SV: See, told you that you'd like that
HT: Oh.
HT: Oh I knew it.
HT: : copies this convo.....
HT: I told you!
HT: 10 hours ago, I said....
SV: You did! JEEZ!
SV: I can't believe you were right.
HT: : loves this book

HT: Sigh. Oh, hey! Naked Harry. Hellooooo daniel
SV: God, that part was boring.
HT: But will look soooo r-rated on screen. Haha.
HT: Fight the Dark Lord in the name of brave Regulus!

I laughed at the property law stuff. I wondered about it, too. There's so much *handwavey* going on.

Honestly, I love the idea of Hermione as a wizarding attorney (headcanon alert!) who kicks some serious ass at the system and works on integrating wizard law and muggle law.

(Actually, I'm writing a Sherlock/HP crossover fic where Hermione meets Sherlock. WHEN LOGIC AND WORLDS COLLIDE.)

(Also, apologies if this in incoherent; I'm coming up on 24 hours up in a row including travel so I can try to force myself onto eastern time.)

OMG, brilliant IMs. It was such a moment in time.

And I can't believe it was five years ago!

I'd forgotten all about the Carpet Book! Love your convo. I don't think I was IMing anyone when I read it; I was too busy trying to finish it ASAP.
