Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Harry Potter needs new friends

Don't worry, I'm not going to spoil anything. I'm only on page 303 of the latest book, so I couldn't spoil anything major even if I wanted to, and I shall be very cross if anyone spoils it for me. People who spoil things are sad, vindictive little people.¹

Anyway, I'm reading along, and it's a good book, and Harry is a celebrity because of the events of the last book, and he's feeling a little pleased with himself because everything he has been saying for the past few years about Voldemort is true, and now everyone knows it. Ron and Hermione are even congratulating him on proving that the Ministry was wrong and just mean and spiteful. So. We've established that everything that Harry has said over the past, say, three years is true. Now he has new suspicions (see? I'm not even going to tell you what those suspicions are!) and his friends don't believe him. They refuse to even entertain thoughts that the only person who has been right about things over the past couple of years might be right again. They ignore him and tell him to let it go. Even though Ron and Hermione were often the only ones who believed him in previous years, now, after he has been proven right, they start disbelieving him.

Harry needs some new friends.

¹ Well, within a certain time period. I feel that I can say that Rosebud was Charles Foster Kane's childhood sled and don't have to feel bad about it. Let's face it, the movie has been out for over 60 years.

Ooooooh, I've got to spoil it for you now...

...Spock does a Vulcan mind-meld to leave his spirit in Ron Weasley's brain...

...Voldemort turns out to be Hermione and Harry's father...

...and that irritating house-elf bites the Goblet of Fire off Harry's finger and falls into the Cracks of Doom.

You don't even need to finish the book now.

Rosebud was the name of the SLED? Curse you, Burgas!

Actually, ROSEBUD is the middle name of Rob and Laura Petrie's son, Ritchie (Robert Oscar Sam Edward Benjamin Ulysses David) on the Dick van Dyke Show.

That bugged me too. Harry's been proven absolutely right about everything, but for some reason his friends go right back to treating him like he's Big Bird trying to tell them about Snuffleupagus.
