HP Premiere

Fri Jul 8, 2011, 8:58 AM


I wasn't going to watch it. I knew if I did I would get too excited, emotional and I would be willing the week away, which always only makes time move slower it seems. But I gave in this morning.
I honestly can't believe how much I cried. I'm not a crier. I get upset but I don't usually cry. It takes a lot for me to cry, but those speeches. They killed me.
Toy Story 3 brought feelings of the end of my childhood. Harry Potter fully ending next week on top of turning 20 years old this past Wednesday has and will send me into a weeping blubbering mess, it really and truly has been my entire childhood and adolescence. I can't believe it'll be over... Honestly it's just properly hit me. I'm completely floored. I still have tears in my eyes. It's really odd because I can't say exactly the full reason why it's so sad...

'No story lives unless someone wants to listen... The stories we love best do live in us forever. So whether you come back page by page or by the big screen Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.'

J.K.Rowling. You beautiful, goddess of a woman. Thank you.

  • Mood: Emotional
  • Watching: HP Premiere

We should make rowling a recognised member of royalty, the queen of potter and the duchess of literature i think is fitting.

I couldn't bring myself to watch it. I don't like crying! But I saw pictures and quotes on tumblr...
George's last line in the film? Something a lot like: FREDDIE? CAN YOU HEAR ME?

I so agree with everything you said. And you could tell that Emma, Dan, and Rupert were right there with us. It's ending for them as much as it is me and all of us.

Toy Story 3 and the premiere speeches made me cry too! I'll be heading off to college this fall, so this is absolutely the end of my childhood. My life ages 8 to 18 will always belong to HP :sniff:

I agree, it was a tearjerker. I'm still crying, rewatching the speeches and everything. This is the end of so many childhoods... The end of an era, but the beginning of a legend. Keep this alive with future generations!

Never let the magic die. <3

I cried a lot watching the premiere. I missed the livestream though. For some reason I think ppl exaggerate it. Nothing's ending! The books ended 4 years ago now, and nobody seems to have forgotten Harry! It's like Star Wars, we're immortal dude:la:

I still haven't watched it for exactly that reason (I know I will bawl my eyes out), but I will have to soon because I can't not, haha! I teared up just seeing the .GIFs of the premiere on tumblr... :tears:
Also, I second what you said so much. So, so much. :nod:

I cried at the end of Toy Story 3 as well.

I HAVE TO WATCH DH: PART II. I know that the movies are coming to an end but if they are, I have to be at the premiere of the last movie. It's my duty. I've stuck with Harry since the beginning and I've never stopped. He's where I found strength in overcoming my dad's death.

I was blubbering like a baby when I heard her say that in her speech yesterday during the bloody livestream. God. J.K. Rowling... Thanks to her. For everything. For all the good and the bad times and giving us something to look up to previously, now, and forever.

Harry Potter really will never truly end because it lives within us all forever and ever. We'll read them to our children. And they'll read it to theirs. There'll even be a remake of the series in a decade or two. Harry'll be resting within us.

The fact that its all over sucks harder then a hoover. Its like Spiderman 3 - I HATED that movie.
Its the End of An Era, but remember: everyone will carry the story with them for the rest of their lives.

I watched the whole thing on youtube. It was great and now I just wish it was July 15th already! They showed a clip of Ron and Hermione in the Chamber of Secrets and Hermione stabbed Hufflepuff's Cup, it was awesome. The clip is on youtube now as well as some others.
The speeches were fantastic but really emotional though, especially Jo and Emma's. I loved what JK said at the end about Hogwarts will be there to welcome you home.

Gosh, I was a wreck yesterday. I caught the livestream when it was ending and re-watched with a friend, but luckily I was home by the time they repeated the speeches, because it was so, so emotional. And as you said, I don't know exactly why I'm sad about, but well... It is the end of an era :(
