On to the more interesting stuff.
To start with Snape. I personally am in total love with his character. I think there's been a lot of speculation as to what type of a person he really is, and whose side he's on, but I guess I'm the die-hard fan that just wants to think he'll never leave to be bad again. I would kill to find out what made him become a Death Eater though, and more importantly, what made him change back and be a spy. There's a lot that can be said about our Slytherin friend here...And I've got my own ideas of what happened.
As for the Department of Mysteries... I'm baffled. I'd love to know more about it, there was so much confusion surrounding it. But one thing that's been plaguing me, and I can't shake it... Why oh why if Voldemort was able to grab the prophecy himself in the first place, didn't he just take it? I mean, it would be ok if he didn't show up later, but he did. So why go to all that bother? Also, how the hell is this Ministry run??? Did anyone else notice the complete lack of security whatsoever?? Death Eaters running amuck, most terrible wizard ever drops by, children who should have been in school going on rescue missions? Did I miss something here that says the wizards aren't into security?
*phew* Ok, that's my 2 cents for now. Let's get the ball rolling folks!
