Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 67 Days
September 13, 2010, 11:54 PM
There are now only 67 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 is today's quote!
"Luna is down at the stream, fishing for Freshwater Plimpies. She . . . she will like to see you. I'll go and call her and then -- yes, very well. I shall try to help you."
- Xenophilius Lovegood
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "Xenophilius Lovegood"
awee I hate how Xeno betrays them but still it’s his daughter right? Like comeon
Water plimpies..yeah right!
Oh, poor Luna, and I did feel sorry for Xeno, but like many on here, loved Hermione in the scene. Good, strong, intelligent female character, I love her.
Ohh, I felt sorry for Xenophilius…
try to “help…” gee thanks. But from this chapter (really the next one though…) my friend and i have developed the “Xenophillius Prove It Theory.” her way of explaining it is “Look, I have an invisible cup of coffee that you cannot see, feel, hear, taste or smell.” “No you don’t.” “oh yeah? prove it!”
Hehehehe Zenophilus is so….. himself
Harry, Ron, and Hermione were worried about Luna in Azkaban. Do you really think she wouldn’t have had the Dementors begging for her to be released? We all know how Luna is!!
he was a jerk in the book at this point and but i think moreso in the movie
i will hear nothing of this saving his daughter nonsense its for the greater good
@hermione198k I felt sorry for Xenophilius, too! He really tried to keep them from coming in and having to hand them over, but he gave into the temptation to get Luna back. I like his character though, he’s so wonderfully weird!
Xenophile = A person attracted to that which is foreign, especially to foreign peoples, manners, or cultures. Old Xenophilius certainly likes strange/foreign things!
I love how Xenophilius’s betrayal of Harry shows the running theme in Harry Potter of how great a parent’s love for their kids is. We see it in Xeno, the Malfoys, the Weasleys, the Longbottoms and, of course, the Potters.
This was an amazing chapter and explained so much. Hermione was amazing what an escape!!
I feel sorry for Xeno … but I still wish he’d never betrayed Harry. I mean, I know it was for Luna but, come on, you’ve thought that he’d realised that Luna wouldn’t have wanted him to do that!!!
I’m torn … xS
On the bright side though, 67 days!! x)
I think Xenophilius was so bewildered thinking about his daughter Luna that he was desperate to try and get her back anyway he could!!! I am just very glad that Harry and Ron & Hermione were able to excape in time!!!
Felt sorry for Xenophilius,but still it was a sort of betray… :-/
