Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 100 Days
August 10, 2010, 07:00 PM
As of midnight tonight in the UK, there are 100 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters! We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here's today's quote!
"I have been careless, and so have been thwarted by luck and chance, those wreckers of all but the best-laid plans. But I know better now. I understand those things that I did not understand before. I must be the one to kill Harry Potter, and I shall be."
-Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "The Dark Lord Ascending"
YESyesyesyesyes!!!!! I made a great countdown sign yesterday, I’m so excited! Love that quote, good old Voldy made some pretty great speeches. :)
I always love irony. It’s so much fun to reread Rowling and check off all the bits of foreshadowing, but even more so when someone says something so clueless. Poor Voldy, completely oblivious to the fact that he is still following the playbook written by his recently deceased nemesis Dumbledore! If he had let anybody else kill Harry, he might’ve gotten away with everything, silly ass. But then, a person as smart as he thought he was could never have looked around at the Room of Requirement piled high with junk and say to himself, “I’m the only one who ever discovered this place!”, now could he? People with Narcissistic Personality Disorder would be funny if they weren’t so annoying.
Love the quote tributes, Leaky!
Oh, Voldy. You THINK you are so cool, but you don’t know nuffin.
