despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage


I actually saw Half-Blood Prince at the midnight release a week ago, but whatever, it's never too late to spill my thoughts on it! Plus I'm going to see it again tonight with my parents, I believe, so it's appropriate.

-- I REALLY LOVED IT. I'm incredibly easy to please with the HP movies at this point, but I still loved it. It was so pretty. I wish the Burrow hadn't been randomly burned down and the quick tossed-in "sweetheart" to let us know about Remus/Tonks was just silly, but other than that.
-- In my very biased opinion, Draco was by far the best part of it. He was just so perfectly scared and trying so hard and failing anyway and generally being a spoiled sixteen-year-old asshole who suddenly has way more responsibility than he actually wanted. I love Tom Felton dearly just for making my favorite come across correctly.
-- The whole theater went "AWWWWWWWW!" really loudly at the Ron/Hermione bits. As they should have, because ♥
-- Harry/Ginny was actually fairly sweet! I enjoyed it! I do not think I will ever find that pairing interesting the way it got done in canon, but it was pleasantly cute in the movie with the absence of the chestmonster.
-- I could just be delusional, but I really think Dan has gotten much better at acting and that it showed this time around.
-- I cried a little after Dumbledore died. :(
-- Seriously, just *________*

Also, I signed up for and claimed a prompt for [ profile] bandom_hc! It is the best prompt.

gerard and mikey are heirs-in-hiding of kingdom occupied by neighbours, and the rest of mcr/brian are their knights/vassals etc. after period of depression gerard rises a rebellion against invaders, loses, gets captured, imprisoned and awfully tortured for a year until the rest of mcr manage to save him and bring him to loyal healers (panic?). long rehabilitation ensues :D

I've written about 2500 words so far and I'm enjoying it thoroughly.
