Well, that David seems not only an idiot but a bad reader too. it’s not Dan who donated but the Broadway theatergoers. If you want to call somebabody bad, then it’s them for donating only 200 k, lol. I have always believed that a simple dole out is not good charity. better to encourage others to contribute to charity by raising awareness about the plight of unfortunate people…

On topic: actor, singer, dance, and now writer? Dan is indeed a man of surprising talent.

Guess That Book

Harry was not aware of releasing George, all he knew was that a second later both of them were sprinting at Malfoy. He had completely forgotten the fact that all the teachers were watching: All he wanted to do was cause Malfoy as much pain as possible.
