7.12 Magic Is Might

9/16/2019
More
One of the biggest mysteries of the book is introduced and resolved over the course of this enigmatic chapter, and no, we’re not talking about the mystery of why JK Rowling seems to think even and odd house numbers are on the same side of the street. If you are wondering what has been going... Read more The post 7.12 Magic Is Might appeared first on The Real Weird Sisters.

7.11 The Bribe

9/9/2019
More
An extremely aged Lupin, bearing a strong resemblance to Jacob Marley, shows up at Grimmauld Place to inform the trio of the Death Eaters outside, propose a tempting plan, and drop some very surprising news about Tonks. Harry tries out the name “Remus,” and it’s about as cool as Remus’s insistence on referring to Snape... Read more The post 7.11 The Bribe appeared first on The Real Weird Sisters.

7.10 Kreacher’s Tale

9/2/2019
More
Once again, the starting page number of this chapter proves to be very significant as Kreacher reveals his story to the trio. But before we get to the elf tale, Harry spends some time ransacking Sirius’s bedroom, under the watchful eye of several bikini-clad muggle girls, a very telling photo of the Marauders, and possibly...

7.9 A Place to Hide

8/26/2019
More
The trio lands in the middle of London–but NOT on Shaftesbury Avenue–and Ron and Harry (or should we still be calling him Barny??) look extra cool in their dress robes. It’s a good thing that Hermione turns out to be more skilled at undetectable extension charms than she is at memory charms. As they search...

7.8 The Wedding

8/19/2019

Thanks to Cousin Barny’s outstanding attention span, this vunderful chapter is filled with beautiful wedding quotes, which are quite useful for social media posts when people you love get married!

7.7 The Will of Albus Dumbledore

8/12/2019

Harry finally comes of age, so it’s time to really put his magic skillz to the test and make some stuff fly around the room!

7.6 The Ghoul in Pajamas

8/5/2019
More
Harry’s struggle with his savior complex has never been more real, and there’s just no time for anything so completely trivial as vol-au-vents or weddings! Unfortunately for him, Mrs. Weasley (whose eyes are the exact shade of Ginny’s, coincidentally) has other plans for everyone, which do not include magically-altered motorbikes or plotting Voldemort’s demise. We... Read more The post 7.6 The Ghoul in Pajamas appeared first on The Real Weird Sisters.

7.5 Fallen Warrior

7/29/2019
More
Martha may not be as excited about this week’s chapter art as she was last week, but the characters do remind us of a certain Hundred Acre Wood character, to everyone’s surprise! Also included this week are the many things we “do like,” Harry mistaking Andromeda for Bellatrix (even though she isn’t singing), and imagined...

7.4 The Seven Potters

7/22/2019
More
The moment we’ve all been dreading has finally arrived, so have a seat on the washing machine, pour yourself a tall glass of Harry-flavored Polyjuice Potion (it’s much tastier than Crabbe and Goyle!) and drink to our poor sweet girl, the true fallen warrior, queen of our hearts, Hedwig. We’re really going to miss her... Read more The post 7.4 The Seven Potters appeared first on The Real Weird Sisters.

7.3 The Dursleys Departing

7/15/2019
More
The Dursleys and Harry bid each other adieu, though not quite as tearfully as Hestia and Dedalus (aka the Order’s D-Squad) predicted. Awkward moments ensue when Harry realizes that Dudley didn’t actually attempt a clever booby trap, Vernon realizes the Order’s master plan to get their house, and Dedalus refers to the Dursleys in the...

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Movie Review

6/24/2019
More
This may be J.K. Rowling’s favorite film of the series (we have some theories as to why that is), but it is certainly none of ours. Nevertheless, we had a great time with Shandy of the Broadcast (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-broadcast/id1128235491?mt=2) dissecting everything about the sixth movie from the romances to the fiyah to the acting.

We’ve reached the end of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, or as we like to call it, Harry Potter and Snape. Is the final chapter as good as Alice remembered? Is it necessary to include both first and last names of characters we’ve gotten to know over the course of six books? And did...

(Spoiler alert) Dumbledore is dead, and Fawkes the phoenix (pronounced FEE-nix) is lamenting. Harry works through his emotions as visitor after visitor enters the hospital wing — even though he’s not hurt. Sparks fly between two unexpected lovebirds, but don’t worry about the fact that it’s in response to Dumbledore’s death, because Dumbledore would have...

Come over to the right side… and by that we mean Dumbledore’s literal right side. You have to admit, it’s a tempting offer! But first, there’s time for a quick joy ride to Hogwarts (Accio Rosmerta’s Brooms!) and plenty of discussion of the limits of the Imperius Curse. Also, spoiler alert, Snape kills Dumbledore.
