Looking at my journal you'd never know I was a deeply sensitive soul who tends to spend hours in heartfelt introspection....

Sorry, I couldn't keep a straight face any longer XD

Anyway, my point or whatever is that I don't really ever say much of consequence on this journal. I hardly ever talk about me or even real things. It's mostly fandom. Which is fine. It will probably continue to be that way, but I did want to take one entry to make about me and things I'm interested in outside of fandom. So, here we go.

I'm a music whore. I love it all; every type, genre, or whatever. However, I am a discerning music whore. I don't go downloading things willy nilly just because. A song has to resonate with me before I'll even consider actually owning it. It has to speak to me. Um, I don't like the Beatles and every time I say that people look at me like I've just thrown an infant off a balcony, but all of their songs are so  boring to me. Not one of them resonates, except possibly "Come Together." I do, however, adore John Lennon.

Movies aren't really my media of choice. I mean, I like them alright and sometimes there are movies that I really want to see, but it's rare that I find a movie that I'd ever want to see again. Usually, I'd rather get on the computer, read a book, or watch television rather than watch a movie.

I love MMORPG's more than any girl I know except maybe Tab. But she only likes one. I like several. Dofus is probably my favorite;  I like Flyff because, hello!, flying; WoW is pretty and fascinating even though I've never played it; Rappelz is GORGEOUS; Wakfu is brilliant, etc, etc.

I am, like, the antithesis of "ambitious." At least where "doing something with my life" is concerned. I figure, why spend half my life in school? I'm never going to have a family, so I really only need enough money to support myself. My bachelors is plenty for me--graduate school can bite me.

Well, there're a few things about me that don't have anything to do with fandom.

So, really, I was done with HP long before the 7th book came out. But, as happens with me, I'm circling back around and flirting with the fandom again. And I realize that I've never really given my two cents about anything related to Harry Potter. So here we go. What I hope to be a series of my own opinions regarding the books, beginning with The Malfoys.

Do you know what immediately comes to mind whenever I think of the Malfoys? It's not that they're bad or evil. It's not that they're Slytherin. It's not their looks.

It's love.

Whenever I think of the Malfoys I think of love. They love each other savagely and all-encompassingly and selfishly--to hell with anyone else. This was my most clear impression throughout the sixth and seventh books. They would and have done anything for each other.

Even with the unfair way Rowling treated Slytherins in general, (more on that tomorrow) I'm glad she didn't completely shit all over the Malfoys and left that aspect of their characters alone.
