_Dewdrop208_: This is sooooooooooo cool! OMG!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Hi, Dewdrop208!
_75frenchvanilla_: What’s your favorite scene fom the 7th book?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_:
That’s a great question, 75frenchvanilla. But before we start talking
about it, let’s wait a few more minutes to let more people join.
_Dewdrop208_: I like The Battle of Hogwarts! It’s so dramatic!
_Dewdrop208_: I’m bursting with excitment! This is my first Stacks chat!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @Dewdrop208: We’re glad you could join us!
_75frenchvanilla_: This is my first live chat too!
_Dewdrop208_: Thanks Karen!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Let’s wait a few more minutes to let more people join the chat. You guys are early birds!
_Polly23_: mine too
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Happy to have newbies! :-)
_Dewdrop208_: tee hee
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: I see a few more people have joined. Welcome to the chat!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: We’re just waiting a few more minutes before getting started, to give more people a chance to log in.
_medusa2_: I just love Harry Potter! Do you @Dewdrop208?
_75frenchvanilla_: Are there usually a lot of people at live chats?
_Dewdrop208_: Definitely!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @75frenchvanilla: It depends on which chat. We had about 30 people join last month’s chat.
_hibster1_: hey ya’ll!
_medusa2_: Do any of you have the whole Harry Potter series?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Okay, it seems like people are getting started!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_:
75frenchvanilla submitted the first question, about Book 7. Before we
start talking about it, I want to make sure everyone knows that we’ll
be talking about the whole series here, so there may be SPOILERS!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Now that *that* is out of the way…
_Dewdrop208_: I do! Igot the whole set from Santa last year!
_75frenchvanilla_: No, we’re missing the 3rd book.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: 75frenchvanilla’s question was: What’s your favorite scene from the 7th book?
_hibster1_: who me?
_Polly23_: @medusa2 yes i do
_medusa2_: @dorkelf: Do you have the whole Harry Potter series?
_Dewdrop208_: Hey @medusa2, have you read “Tales of Beedle the Bard”?
_Dewdrop208_: What’s the best thing about book 7?
_lucca4_: Hey guys!!!! I’m so so excited for this!!!!!!!
_kreacher_: What did everyone think of the sixth movie?
_dorkelf_: No, have only read the first book. :)
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @dorkelf: Just a warning: there will probably be spoilers during this chat!
_Firekitty_: @kreacher: It wasn’t like the book, but the adaptions were OK!
_medusa2_: @Polly23: Me to!
_Dewdrop208_: I didn’t see it yet!
_lucca4_:
My favorite scene…I really like the scene when Harry and Hermione go
to the graveyard. It’s one of my favorite Harmony moments :-)
_kreacher_: My favorite scene is Dobby’s buriel, it makes me cry everytime.
_lucca4_: @ kreacher,I thought the sixth movie was okay. much better than the fifth, but not as good as the earlier ones (1 and 2)
_75frenchvanilla_: @dorkelf : Have you watched the movies?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_:
@kreacher: I always cry at that scene too! Once I was listening to the
audiobook on the subway, and I started crying in front of everyone.
_dorkelf_: Yes, except the latest movie.
_Luv_Trees_: Hey guys, what do you do at a live chat – its my first one
_Dewdrop208_: I was freaked out by the 5th HP movie.
_medusa2_: @Polly23: Harry Potter is my favorite series. Is it your’s too?
_Firekitty_: I cried at the battle of hogwarts scene, where lots of my fave people died….
_lily849_: hi!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_:
@Luv_Trees: Everyone just shares their thoughts, and the STACKS
Staffers moderate all the messages and push them live. Seems like
you’ve got the hang of it!
_Luv_Trees_: dewdrop – me too, just a little bit
_Dewdrop208_: Hi Luv Trees!
_lily849_: hey everyone! this is my 2nd chat ever!
_lucca4_:
@ Luv Trees: It’s basically the same as usual–except your comments get
reviewed 1000000 times as fast ;) It’s really fun, actually, but I
haven’t been able to make the past few ones.
_Luv_Trees_: hi peeps
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Yay, thanks to all you newbies (and sort of newbies) for joining today’s chat!
_lucca4_: @lily849: Mine too!!!!! I had to make this one
_Polly23_: @medusa2 its one of them i also like the doll people series ever read?
_lily849_: this my sound silly, but im on a hp chat and i havent read on page of hp!
_tubasrock_: hi
_lily849_: @lucca4: Hey! I’ve seen you on the boards!
_Luv_Trees_: thnx for all your welcoming words, so who loves HP??
_Dewdrop208_: I was sad when Lupin and Tonks died. I really liked them.
_lucca4_: Who’s your favorite characters?? Mine is Sirius :-D
_medusa2_: @Dewdrop208: Wasn’t the Half-Prince great?!
_lily849_: @firekitty: I’ve ssen you on the boards too!
_dorkelf_: Seen any of the movies Lily?
_75frenchvanilla_: I was wondering why practically everybody dies in book 7, especially Fred.
_Dewdrop208_: me too @lucca4.
_lucca4_: @lily849: Hi!! I recognized you, too!
_lily849_: @Karen: HOw long ago did this chat start?
_Luv_Trees_: Hey how do you do the @ thingy??
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @lily849: We started about 12 minutes ago.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @Luv_Trees: Press “Shift” and “2″ and you’ll get the @.
_Firekitty_: @Dewdrop: Tonks was the best character EVER
_lily849_: @dorkelf- I saw the first and second- they were pretty good
_tubasrock_: hey did u guys take the quiz to find out what house your in?
_Dewdrop208_: I dig Tonks!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: My fave character is Dobby.
_lucca4_: How long is the chat?
_75frenchvanilla_: @Dewdrop 208: I liked Lupin and Tonks too.
_Stacks_Admin_: The chat is one hour long — so we’ll be ending around 5pm (in about 45 minutes)
_Luv_Trees_: thnx
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @lucca4: The chat is an hour long. We’ve got about 45 minutes left.
_Luv_Trees_: @lucca – just about 1hr
_tubasrock_: my fave character is ginny!
_tubasrock_: i also like draco hehe
_Polly23_: @tubasrock i was in ravenclaw
_medusa2_: @Polly23: Is this you’r first time in stacks chat?
_lucca4_: @Dewdrop208: Tonks is my second favorite character.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @Stacks_Admin: You beat me! >:-(
_Luv_Trees_: my fave is GINNY, just like tubasrock
_dorkelf_:
French Vanilla, I think the best writers are really good at torturing
and killing off their characters. Good fiction is all about struggles,
battles, difficult decisions, stuff like that.
_lily849_:
@Karen; were you at the summer reading chat when we were talking about
chickens? That was really funny! (oh plz DO NOT BRING UP CHICKENS!)
_tubasrock_: @polly i m in slytherin
_Polly23_: @karen i really liked dobby too it was so sad when he died
_tubasrock_: @luv trees i know, she’s awesome
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @tubasrock: Why do you like Draco when he’s kind of a bad guy?
_75frenchvanilla_: @tubasrock : Yeah! I’m a proud Ravenclaw!
_Luv_Trees_: @lily849 – I’ve seen you on the boards before!!!
_Dewdrop208_: My friend from ice skating class looks exactly like Ginny Weasly!
_Polly23_: @medusa2 yeah its my first time at a chat is it yours?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @lily849: Yes, I was there. I forgot about that! Don’t remind me.
_lily849_: Was anyone in the summer reading chat?!?! we talked about chickens and it was HILARIOUS!
_Luv_Trees_: mine too!!
_lily849_: @luvTrees: so have i!
_lily849_: @karen: hehe!
_tubasrock_:
@karen, well, its more of you can sorta tell that he isn’t all evil,
and that at some point he’ll figure out that its not everything to be
evil
_medusa2_: 2Polly23: Yes, it is.
_fabchick_: I think I’d be a Hufflepuff.
_Firekitty_: @lily849: I remember the chickens… how did that come up again? =P
_lucca4_: I’m a Gryffindor.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_:
We actually have a Sorting Hat activity on THE STACKS:
http://www.scholastic.com/harrypotter/activities/personality_quiz –
take it to find out which house you would be in!
_tubasrock_: i’m slytherin!
_Dewdrop208_: I wonder why Rose Weasley likes Scorpius. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.
_lily849_: so…this is kinda a silly question..but what is hp about? besides magic and stuff like that.
_harryobsessed_: I’m a Ravenclaw!
_Firekitty_: I’m a Ravenclaw, according to the quiz. Just like Luna Lovegood!!
_harryobsessed_: @ Dewdrop: Who says she does?
_lily849_: i did the sorting hat thing and i got ravenclaw…wht ever tht is…
_Luv_Trees_: I wanna be a =Gyffindor
_lucca4_: @lily849: I think, to sound really English teachery, that it’s about the eternal struggle against evil.
_lily849_: @Luv_Trees: who is gryindor?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @lily849: Ravenclaw is known for having smart wizards.
_panicpark_: I am a gryffindor on the inside but I too am like Luna.
_lily849_: @Lucca4: Lol! Thx
_harryobsessed_: @ lily849: HP has very large themes, such as the never-ending battle of Good vs. Evil, true courage, love, and other things.
_tubasrock_: @lily849 well, ravenclaw is the house for the smarter people
_Dewdrop208_: i gotta go! I’ll be back!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: I took the quiz and was put in Ravenclaw, but I think I’m more of a Hufflepuff.
_Stacks_Admin_: See ya later then, dewdrop!
_dorkelf_: Who is the most important Ravenclaw character in the series? I’ve been ‘classified’ by my friends as a Ravenclaw.
_lily849_: @Karen_Stacks_Staffer: Ok, thanks for answering my question!
_medusa2_: @LuvTrees; Hey LuvTrees! I wanna be a Gryffindor too!
_lucca4_: @dorkelf: I think Luna Lovegood.
_fabchick_: @dorkelf: I think Luna is the most important Ravencla character.
_Luv_Trees_: lily849: Gryffindor is a House in Hogwarts
_tubasrock_: i was put in slytherin, but i think i’m a rare good slytherin
_MCRreader_: Slytherin
_harryobsessed_: @ dorkelf: I like Luna, and Cho’s in there, but I never really liked her. I can’t think of any other Ravenclaws.
_lily849_: So…do you think there’s gonna be a 7th movie? (they are on the 6th rite?)
_Luv_Trees_: fabchick: I hate luna’s actor, she’s annoying
_panicpark_: Stacks Admin, what are we talking about? I’m new to this.
_tubasrock_: @lily they are going to have the 7th movies , part 1 and part 2
_lily849_: My dad said the most recent hp movie will probably be the last because the person who plays harry is getting to old to play him
_Stacks_Admin_: @panicpark: Today’s topic is Harry Potter!
_Stacks_Admin_: Just submit your message, it’ll be reviewed and sent live by a moderator
_Luv_Trees_: panicpark: me too, dont worry
_harryobsessed_: @ lily849: The seventh movie is currently being filmed; it will be in two parts, the first released in 2010, the second in 2011
_lily849_: but idk
_MCRreader_: I like Draco Malfoy, I can’t believe he got married in the 7th book!
_lily849_: @harryobseesed: Okay, just wondering!
_Dewdrop208_: I’m back! and I’m in Ravenclaw!
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Hi!
_panicpark_: luv trees thank you!
_Luv_Trees_: harryobssed: why would they seperate years
_75frenchvanilla_: Ravenclaw is for wise people. Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure. @ lily849
_lily849_: Isn’t Draco the bad guy?
_tubasrock_: @mcrreader, yes, someone who also likes draco!
_MCRreader_: I was schocked i loved the books and now i’m sad that there over
_Firekitty_: Do you think the next 2 movies will be called “Part 1″ and “Part2″ or will they have more specific titles?
_MCRreader_: yeah kind of
_Luv_Trees_: Who did Draco marry in book 7
_harryobsessed_: @ luv trees: It’s a big book and they missed a ton in the sixth.
_MCRreader_: i don’t know
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: @firekitty: IDK!!!!!!
_tubasrock_: @lily, ya, but you can tell that draco doesnt always want to be the bad guy
_harryobsessed_: @ firekitty: I hope they come up with better subtitles!

_medusa2_: @Polly23: Hey Polly! Who’s your favorite character out of the whole Harry Potter series?
_harryobsessed_: @ Luv_trees: Astoria Greengrass, sister of minorly mentioned Daphne
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_:
@lily849: You should definitely read the books. It’s my favorite book
series, and you can see that everyone else loves them too!
_Luv_Trees_: lily: tell me what you know about HP
_lily849_: @FlowerFUnRainbowRacer: I’ve seen you on the allie finkle boards!
_75frenchvanilla_: I know they didn’t even have the ministers in the beginning!

_lily849_: bye tubasrock!
_MCRreader_: no that I was crying
_harryobsessed_: @ Luv_trees: They only have chats once a month or so.
_Luv_Trees_: Bye tubasrock!!!
_Firekitty_:
Where in the story do you think Deathly Hallows will be split into 2
movies? I think after Xenophilius tells then about the Hallows and they
set off on their journey.
_panicpark_: The video games are great too.
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: hi
_lucca4_: @MCReader: I don’t like Harry and Ginny, but I really really don’t like Hermione and Ron
_Luv_Trees_: thnx stacks admin
_Dewdrop208_: I’ve all the HP books in a year!
_Stacks_Admin_: Hi, stuffedmudkiptoy!
_lily849_: Okay, I’ll get them out of the library when i go next week!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @lucca4: You don’t think Hermione and Ron make a good couple? How come?
_MCRreader_: sigh no That I was crying
_Luv_Trees_: oh, once a month!! That stinks
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Firekitty: IDK. Good question.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Hello, stuffedmudkiptoy! Welcome to the chat!!!!!!!!
_harryobsessed_: @ panicpark: The video games are okay, the books are way better
_75frenchvanilla_: I’m not sure where it will be split.
_lily849_: Hii PugsHugs! I’ve seen you on the boards!
_MCRreader_: no that I was crying
_Dewdrop208_: When’s the next chat?
_Luv_Trees_: I think Hermione and Ron make a perfect couple
_Luv_Trees_: Yeah, yo ugo lily849!!!
_Stacks_Admin_: Hi everyone, remember not to provide any personal information. It won’t be approved. . .
_harryobsessed_: @ Lucca: I love Hermione and Ron! Why you no like?
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: harrybosessed: Ooh. I like the video games.
_MCRreader_: not that they are pathtic
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @Dewdrop208: We don’t have an exact date for the next chat yet. It will be towards the end of August.
_harryobsessed_: @ Dewdrop: They haven’t said.
_panicpark_: Hermione and Ron make a great couple.
_lucca4_:
 @Firekitty: They said it on Mugglenet, I think…URG, but I
totally forget!!!! I can’t believe it! I know it wasn’t at that
Xenophilius part, because I was hoping for that, too. I think it was
after Ron kills the horcrux.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Wait PugHugs is here?!?! Cool. I don’t see her.
_MCRreader_: i know me too
_harryobsessed_: @ Luv_Trees: I agree!
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Stacks_Admin: Of course!
_Dewdrop208_: Maybe when the battle of Hogwarts begins.
_harryobsessed_: @ FlowerFun: They’re okay, but there isn’t enough to do, and Hogwarts looks better in my head.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Oh, wait…. PugHugs is just watching… PUGHUGS come on! Join us!
_Firekitty_: Thanks lucca4! I’ll see if I can find it
_lily849_: What wil the next chat be about?
_MCRreader_: i haven’t played the video games are they good?
_lucca4_:
@harryobsessed: I just don’t like how Ron treats her, and how they
always fight. I don’t care if it’s because they secretly like each
other, I just hate how incredibly mean they are to each other. Harry
and Hermione are a much more…complacent couple.
_75frenchvanilla_: I don’t really like Ron and Hermione as a couple.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: harryobsessed: Yeah, I know. Definently not as good as the books.
_lily849_: How many minutes are left of this chat?!?!
_Dewdrop208_: I would love to be a Hogwarts student!
_lucca4_: Hey, Pughugs!!!
_Stacks_Admin_:
The next chat will be about The 39 Clues! We haven’t finalized the date
yet though, but it’ll be announced all over THE STACKS!
_Luv_Trees_: come on everyone who is just watching!!!!!!!!!!!!!
_harryobsessed_: @lily: When they announce the next one’s date.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: MCRreader: Yes. But the books are better.
_Luv_Trees_: we wanna have you here
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: 75Frencvanilla: Why?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Wow, I’m surprised how many people don’t like Ron and Hermione as a couple!
_Stacks_Admin_: There are about 30 minutes in this chat.
_harryobsessed_: @ MCR: They’re okay if you want to kill some time.
_MCRreader_: they are an awesome couple!
_lucca4_: About thirty
_panicpark_: Karen, what do you think the next chat is about?
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: lily: I think it goes until 5 o’clock. Eastern.
_PugHugs_: *lurks* ^^ Hi!
_harryobsessed_: @ Lily: About half an hour.
_lily849_: Yes! The 39 clues! I love tht series!
_MCRreader_: thx

_Luv_Trees_: SORCER’S STONE!!!!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @lucca4: Me too. Hands down. It used to be #3, but then #7 came out.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Karen: I think I’d have to say the Prisoner of Azkaban…
_Luv_Trees_: by lily
_Polly23_: i liked 1 best
_75frenchvanilla_: After reading the 1st book iIrefused to believe Hogwarts wasn’t real . I still don’t.
_lucca4_: Bye, Lily849
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Bye lily!
_MCRreader_: Ok ummm The Half-Blood Prince , and The Deathly Hollows
_harryobsessed_: @ Karen: I like the seventh; it was an amazing ending and the third is a close second (Sirius rocks!)
_panicpark_: even though I have’t been here for a little while, but this is fun!
_fabchick_: deathly hallows!!!!!
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Oh, hi Polly23!
_75frenchvanilla_: #3

_Luv_Trees_: bye lily
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: See ya, lily!!!!!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Bye, lily849! Thanks for joining — even though you haven’t read any HP!
_MCRreader_: It was sad that Snape died! He turned out to be a good guy!
_Firekitty_: I like the 3rd book, with Sirius!
_75frenchvanilla_: Bye lily849
_Dewdrop208_: Karen, please post an exerpt on 39 Clues at Ink Splot 26.
_lily849_: bye everyone!
_Stacks_Admin_: @PugHugs: not necessarily!
_lucca4_: @lily: Buy Sorcerer’s Stone from Borders ASAP!
_harryobsessed_:
@ Lucca: I almost started crying when he died in OOTP, but I didn’t
want to embarrass myself; it was silent reading time in fifth grade.
_Luv_Trees_: Tell me peeps, do you think the producers did a good job on the movies?? I think a little bit
_Dewdrop208_: We’ll miss you lilly!
_75frenchvanilla_: I don’t miss Snape.
_panicpark_: My favorite book is the Chamber of secrets.
_panicpark_: bye lily
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: This chat is so much fun!!!!!
_Dewdrop208_: I’ve never liked Snape.
_MCRreader_: and Snape loved Lily i was schocked
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @Dewdrop208: We have excerpts from the first two 39 Clues books on THE STACKS: http://www.scholastic.com/kids/39clues/read
_harryobsessed_: @ 75frenchvanilla: Why? I sort of like him now that I know his full story.
_Luv_Trees_: SNAPE IS FUNNY
_lucca4_:
@harryobsessed: I didn’t believe it for the longest time!! And then
after I finished the part where Harry asks Nick about being a ghost, I
almost cried.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Luv_Trees, I think the movies are nothing compared to the books, but they’re pretty good.
_Dewdrop208_: I just love the Prisenor of Azkaban!
_MCRreader_: he would do anything for her
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: I think it’s possible to respect what Snape did but not like him as a person you’d want to be friends with.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Which do you like better: Twilight or Harry Potter?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Note to all: Twilight is for teens.
_penguin2009_: i cried when i found out snape’s full story
_MCRreader_: yeah i know
_Luv_Trees_: has anyone seen the 7th movie
_Polly23_: i think snape is cool now that we know he good
_PugHugs_: Snape is absolutely my favorite character. ^^
_MCRreader_: it was soooooooo sad
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Yeah I agree with Karen.
_MCRreader_: i’d want to be friends with him
_harryobsessed_: @ Karen: That’s pretty much where I stand on Snape.
_lucca4_: @FlowerFunRainbowRacer: HARRY POTTER ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!
_MCRreader_: hmmm Twilight
_75frenchvanilla_: I just get bad vibes off of him.
_MCRreader_: not really
_Luv_Trees_: I feel bad for Draco in the 6th mvovie
_harryobsessed_: @ FlowerFun: HARRY POTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
_MCRreader_: twilight just isn’t for teens
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Luv trees, it isn’t out yet, is it?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Let’s kick MCReader out of this chat! J/K
_panicpark_: I also like the tales of beedle the bard
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: PugHugs-Really??!!
_Luv_Trees_: karen: my mom doesn’t let me read/see twilight
_Polly23_: @flowerfunrainbowracer never read twilight
_lucca4_: @Pughugs: I think he’s hilarious. HIs comments especially.
_harryobsessed_: @ Karen: According to my nine-year-old brother, a girl in his class has read it. It’s ridiculous.
_75frenchvanilla_: The 7th movie hasn’t come out yet.
_Firekitty_: Have you ever dressed up as an HP character? I dressed up as Hermione.
_Dewdrop208_: Whoops. I’ve read the first Twilight book and I am young
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: LOL Karen.
_PugHugs_: Who’s your favorite Death Eater? (…let’s include Snape in this.)
_lucca4_: @Karen: Can you really kick someone out of a chat?
_harryobsessed_: @ MCR: I believe it says “Ages 12 & up on the inside flap.
_MCRreader_: seriously?
_Luv_Trees_: flowerfun: I meant the 6th oopsie!!
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Firekitty-No, but I think tat would be fun.
_lucca4_: @Firekitty: I dressed up like Hermione with my friend, and we argued over who was the “REAL” hermione
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @lucca4: Yup, I’m very powerful. But I was just kidding about kicking MCReader out — for liking Twilight more than HP.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: I only use my power for good.
_MCRreader_: i know my sister is nine
_MCRreader_: and she has read all of them
_Dewdrop208_: I was a Griffyodor student one year
_Polly23_: i dressed up as luna for a harry potter party
_Luv_Trees_: My fave death eater is Belatrix!!!
_harryobsessed_: @ PugHugs: Bellatrix. She’s great with Voldy and Helena does a FABULOUS job as her in the movies.
_MCRreader_: ok?
_PugHugs_: @lucca4: Snape? Totally. Especially the way Alan Rickman plays him. Best actor in the movies. ^^
_Firekitty_: Pughugs: I kind of like Draco… He’s just “misunderstood”
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Harryobsessed-on Twilight or Harry Potter?
_lucca4_: @Pughugs: Probably Snape. Or Bellatrix–even though she killed Sirius.
_Dewdrop208_: I like Lucius Malfoy.
_75frenchvanilla_: Yaxley
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: I love both Twilight and Harry Potter. I can’t chose which one!!
_penguin2009_: haha baldy voldy
_harryobsessed_: @ Karen: And fun. With all that power, you’ve got to have fun with it sometimes, right?
_Luv_Trees_: firekitty: I’vve dressed up as Hermione as well!!! ROFLMBO!!!
_harryobsessed_: @ Flower Fun: HP all the way. I was on Twilight bashing forums before I came to the chat.
_lucca4_:
@Pughugs: I agree!! It used to be Richard Harris, but I think now it’s
Rickman. He’s probably the most experienced actor (arguably) working on
HP.
_75frenchvanilla_: hp
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Hey penguin2009!
_Dewdrop208_: Bellatrix is a cute name for a bunny.
_PugHugs_: lucca4: Helena Bonham-Carter is terrific, totally. ^^
_Polly23_: @luvtrees i dont think i can talk to you anymore bellatrix really?
_Luv_Trees_: only 20 min left :(
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: harrybosessed-LOL.
_harryobsessed_: @ PugHugs: I know, she’s just so evil!
_Dewdrop208_: Alan Rickman is a good Snapoe.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @Dewdrop208: I never thought about it until now, but Bellatrix is a very pretty name for such a terrible person.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: luv_trees: I know, it’s sad!!! This is my first chat, and I got here 20 minutes late. WAH!!!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Here’s another question for everyone: how many times have you re-read the books?
_PugHugs_: Dewdrop208: xD I’m imagining a really evil bunny right now… “muahahaha hand over the carrots!”
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Karen-Yeah, I agree.
_Dewdrop208_: That’s true.
_Polly23_: @luvtrees what does roflmbo stand for?
_harryobsessed_: @ Dewdrop: I don’t know. He’s good for the movies, but the Snape in my head is so much different.
_MCRreader_: five times
_panicpark_: I hate VOLDEMORT!!!!!! (I shouldn’t have said his name!)
_lucca4_: @Karen: I don’t really count, probably a zillion!! ;-)
_Dewdrop208_: Hmmmmm. About 3 times.
_Polly23_: @ karen a lot
_Luv_Trees_: polly23: Yeah……….
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: I haven’t even read the sixth and seventh books yet… and I’ve only read the other ones once each. (To Karen)
_harryobsessed_: @ Karen: Several times.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: panicpark-LOL.
_Luv_Trees_: polly23: Rolling on floor laughing my butt off
_MCRreader_: ok um The Inheritance Cycle or Harry Potter?
_harryobsessed_: Who has both US and UK editions of the books? I do!
_Firekitty_: @Karen: At least twice…
_PugHugs_:
@Karen: I don’t keep track. It turns into too much of a competition.
“I’ve read the series fifteen times!” “Oh yeah? That’s nothing! I’ve
read it twenty-five times!” ^^
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Did anyone re-read the whole series before Book 7 came out? I heard of some people who did that, but I just re-read Book 6.
_Dewdrop208_: Voldie’s gone MOLDY!!!!!!!
_Luv_Trees_: gotta go bye!!!
_medusa2_: @panicpark: I’ve seen every movie, but I’m still on The Goblet of Fire book.
_lucca4_: @MCReader: Harry Potter!!!
_75frenchvanilla_: Practically all the people in the Black family are named after flowers, constellations, or stars.
_Stacks_Admin_: Thanks for joining, Luv_Trees!
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: harryobsessed-Awesome.
_harryobsessed_: @ MCR: I’ve only read HP, but there’s no way it could be better.
_lucca4_: @Luv Trees: Byebye!!! See you on the boards!
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Aw! Bye Luv_Trees!
_Dewdrop208_: Don’t go @Luv trees!
_MCRreader_: I don’t know there both great books but i love Arya
_harryobsessed_: @ Karen: I only re-read the books before I’m going to see one of the movies. Then I can over-criticize it.
_lucca4_: @75frenchvanilla: I know! We learned about Sirius and Regulus in our science class. Best. Day. Ever!
_Firekitty_: @Karen: I did, but I didn’t finish book 6 in time for the release.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_:
@harryobsessed: I do the exact same thing! Then I always have to
re-watch the movies so I can enjoy them without comparing to the book so
much.
_PugHugs_: @Karen: I don’t remember. My brother had
stopped reading the series in the middle of OotP (…and his favorite
character was Sirius) and he read OotP and HBP in the month before DH.
xD
_panicpark_: Don’t go luv trees!!!
_medusa2_: @Polly23: Who’s your favorite character?
_Dewdrop208_: Do you like Tales of Beedle the Bard?
_MCRreader_: my sister and i always over critize everything
_lucca4_: @Dewdrop: I love the stories, especially The Fountain of Fair Fortune and Babbity Rabbity.
_harryobsessed_: @ Dewdrop: I found it a nice addition to the series.
_Polly23_: @medusa2 Ginny Weasley
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: dewdrop… I haven’t read it yet. Is it good?
_Firekitty_: @Dewdrop: I loved beedle the bard! The stories were so… magical.
_Dewdrop208_: Babbity Rabbity is so cool!
_panicpark_: @dewdrop208 I like that book.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @Dewdrop208: My fave part of “Beedle the Bard” was reading Dumbledore’s notes.
_75frenchvanilla_: I hate when people start in the middle of the series
_Dewdrop208_: Tee hee
_medusa2_: @Dewdrop208: i like Tales of Beedle the Bard!
_penguin2009_: my favorite character is hermione because she’s a total nerd
_PugHugs_:
@harryobsessed: I watched OotP the other night and drove my dad crazy
with commentary. “WOOT for Bellatrix! Wait what are you doing
Dumbledore? Woot for Voldemort’s epic line!”
_MCRreader_: Fred and Gorge and Lupin and Tonks are my fave
_harryobsessed_: Which was your favorite tale? I liked the Fountain of Fair Fortune.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Karen-They hav Dumbledore’s notes in that book? Cool.
_harryobsessed_: I like Hermione and Ron, character-wise.
_lucca4_:
@75frenchvanilla: I know! And I especially hate it when they come to
you with all these questions about what happened in the previous books.
_Dewdrop208_: Dumbledore is so wise and so pleasant to be with.
_panicpark_: Hermoine is sooooooooooo smart.
_harryobsessed_: @ PugHugs: I love adding commentary to anything really!
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: 75frenchvanilla-People do that? They must get so confused!!
_harryobsessed_: It helps when you have soda beforehand so you’re really hyper and ridiculous.
_PugHugs_: @harryobsessed: I liked the Fountain of Fair Fortune too. And Dumbledore’s notes for all of them.
_MCRreader_: yo gotta go bye thx 4 talking to me
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Bye, MCReader! Thanks for joining the chat!
_Dewdrop208_: I wrote an atricle about Hemione and posted it on the HP boards.
_panicpark_: @harryobsessed me too.
_Firekitty_: If I had to choose three favorite characters… I choose Tonks, Neville, and Hermione.
_harryobsessed_: Later MCR!
_lucca4_: @harryobsessed: Or cookiedough!
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Who here has seen the new Harry Potter movie???
_medusa2_: @Polly23: My favorite character is Harry Potter, of course!
_MiniLibro_: this is so cool! I’ve never been to a chat before
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Dewdrop208 has me wondering: do any of you guys like to read or write fan fiction about Harry Potter?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: I love reading some of what you guys post on our Harry Potter message boards!
_lucca4_: @FlowerFunRainbowRacer: I have!
_harryobsessed_: @ Flower Fun: Opening day!
_75frenchvanilla_: Aww..the chats almost over
_harryobsessed_: @ Karen: Only in my head, which is where most of my stories are.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Moderators, I’ve got a question… where it says, “Chatting”, what’s that list for??
_lucca4_: @Karen: I love reading Marauder era fanfics, and I’m writing a fanfic about Sirius on the HP Fanfiction boards.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: How come there are no new posts popping up?
_75frenchvanilla_: I love reading Hp fan fictions!
_harryobsessed_: @ Karen: I’ve been on the HP message boards for over two years! I love it there!
_MiniLibro_: @FlowerFunRainbowRacer: I have
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @FlowerFunRainbowRacer: The “Chatting”list shows who has submitted a message.
_Firekitty_: @Karen: I love to read fanfiction, especially “prequels” to the series!
_Dewdrop208_: I wrote a reply to “Rose and Scorpius or after Harry”.
_medusa2_: @KarenStacksStaffer: Who’s your favorite character?
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Um, what’s going on? I don’t see any new messages popping up! None of my messages are getting approved!!
_PugHugs_:
@Karen: I’ve written a bit of fanfiction but overall I don’t like a lot
of it. It’s not like the books and I don’t like reading stories on the
computer screen much anyway. xD I like fanart, though.
_panicpark_: @Karen and everyone, if you went to Hogwarts, what would your favorite class be?
_lucca4_: Sorry guys, got to go!!!! This was SO much fun!!! Thanks mods!!!! This is really fun!!! Bye, see you all on the boards!!!!!
_75frenchvanilla_: Charms
_Stacks_Admin_: Thanks for joining, lucca!
_harryobsessed_: @ panicpark: I’d like Transfiguration and Charms.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_:
@medusa2: It’s so hard to decide on a single favorite character. I
really love Dobby by the end of the series. And I love Hermione.
_PugHugs_: @lucca4: Bye!!
_MiniLibro_: @ karen: why don’t we do this more often?
_harryobsessed_: By Lucca!
_tubasrock_: Hi agian!
_PugHugs_: @panicpark: I think I’d like Charms. ^^
_panicpark_: lucca4 bye
_Dewdrop208_: Don’t go lucca!
_Firekitty_: @panicpark: Probably charms or Defense against dark arts
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: OK. That seemed to work. I just left, then came back. Were my messages posted?
_harryobsessed_: Welcome back, tubasrock!
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Oh, lucca4 is leaving? Bye!
_Stacks_Admin_: @MiniLibro: We want to keep live chats as something special, so we have them just once a month or so.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @panicpark: I think probably Charms. That covers a lot of different spells.
_Dewdrop208_: I like Herbolgy!
_panicpark_: my favorite class would be defense against the dark arts.
_tubasrock_: @harryobessed thanks!
_Polly23_: @panicpark i think charms souns cool
_MiniLibro_: @stacksadmin: oh okay
_Stacks_Admin_: But on THE STACKS, the message boards and profiles are on ALL THE TIME! So visit often. :)
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_:
Admins, where it says “Chatting”, what’s that for? If you already
answered that, sorry, my screen froze up, I had to log out then come
back.
_Dewdrop208_: Do you like Tranfiguration?
_harryobsessed_: @ Stacks Admin: I go on every day! I love Inksplot!
_75frenchvanilla_: Flitwick sounds like a cool teacher too.
_MiniLibro_: DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS GOING TO BE A HARRY POTTER THEME PARK?!!! I’M SO EXCITED!
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Dewdrop-Yes!
_Dewdrop208_: Inkspot is amazing!
_harryobsessed_: @ dewdrop: Yes. It sounds fascinating (I’m such a Hermione)
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_:
@MiniLibro: I heard about that, but it seems like it’s taking a while
for them to build it. I’m totally going there when it opens.
_Stacks_Admin_: @FlowerFunRainbowRace: The “Chatting” list shows who has just submitted a message.
_medusa2_: @KarenStacksStaffer: I have two favorite characters. Harry Potter( of course!)and Dobby.
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: MiniLibro-Yeah! I heard! So cool!
_Firekitty_: @MiniLibro: I can’t wait! It sounds soooo amazing!
_FlowerFunRainbowRacer_: Oh, okay, thanks Stacks_Admin!
_PugHugs_: @MiniLibro: I really want to go there when it opens. ^^

_medusa2_: @Polly23: Do you wanna be friends?
_Dewdrop208_: My Profile is really cool!
_Stacks_Admin_: @dewdrop — what do you mean?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @panicpark: I think the fourth movie is my favorite.
_harryobsessed_: @ everyone: Has anyone seen the HP Exhibition at the Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago? It’s really cool!
_MiniLibro_: @panicpark: the fifth one

_75frenchvanilla_: I’ll be right back.

Clues, but send in your topic suggestions for future chats . . .
