Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 61 Days

DH Film

There are now only 61 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!

"Why did half of us never even know she existed, until they carried the coffin out of the house and held a funeral for her? Where was saintly Albus while Ariana was locked in the cellar? Off being brilliant at Hogwarts, and never mind what was going on in his own house!"
- Auntie Muriel
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "The Wedding"

J.K. Rowling is listed as one of the producers? That’s amazing!

I absolutely love Auntie Muriel. She had plenty to say about many at the wedding and especially about Ginny. Loved her. She made me laugh.

The shadows of the past continue to be cast in the present; isn’t that ones conscience at work?

Aunt Muriel is cast in the movie for part 1, so they are going to have at least a few lines from her during the wedding scene.

This quote was so infuriating! Of course, I didn’t believe Muriel, and I was frustrated that Harry became so fixated on her version of DD’s story. I felt really bad for Doge in this scene, too. Then to find out later what really happened to Ariana — that there was some grain of truth in all of the bad things said about DD — the whole thing was just tragic.

Agreed. There where some nightbus size holes in Rowling last book, but she kept it tight with the Ariana story; cuminating to Abeforth’s picture of her true purpose. Genius

I wish Muriel would keep some things to herself, but if she didn’t say anything we wouldn’t have known much about Ariana. Only 61 days left! :D

i just began re reading DH yesterday night and that part still makes me mad.
I’m not sure they will include it in the movie though.
