Day 1: Your favorite book
Day 2: Your favorite movie
Day 3: Is there any of the films adaptations that have made you angry because they’ve ignored important parts of the book?

Um, if there weren't, would I even be a Potter fan? A lot of things about the movies piss me off. My number one is Goblet of Fire movie, where they blatantly ignore important parts of canon like the Maurder's Map tipping Harry off to Barty Crouch Jr.'s non-death or Rita Skeeter being a beetle and Hermione locking her up in a jar (the second more for my amusement, admittedly), and a load of other things. However, the HBP movie is almost as bad. My cousin and I (we are geeks who watch the Potter movies together and give lectures to people on why R/Hr are awesome, yes) watched it with a few friends who aren't as obsesses as we are, and it didn't even make sense to two of them. Which tells you how much of the plot they chopped up just to make things more dramatic romantically. For instance, they kind of killed Harry/Ginny, and I'm not even a shipper. That being said, it's a pretty hard feat to live up to the books. Which is why I'm kind of the only person alive happy that they're splitting the 7th movie into two parts. Even though they'll still probably kill it.

Day 22: Harry Potter or Twilight?
Day 23: Any part of the books/movies that makes you cry?
Day 24: Any particular scene you wished would have been put in the movie but it wasn’t?
Day 25: Nineteen years later. Are you happy how it turned out, or do you wish something was different, ie Neville married Luna?
Day 26: If you could be able to work one spell without a wand what would it be?
Day 27: Would you rather own The Invisibility Cloak, The Resurrection Stone or The Elder Wand?
Day 28: Do you listen to Wizard Wrock, what do you think about it?
Day 29: Did you enjoy A Very Potter Musical?
Day 30: What affect has Harry Potter made on your life and how much does it mean to you?

Probably going to host a comment-fic thing tomorrow. I'm a little bit blocked and I could use the prompts.

Yeah, I agree that the movies do leave out important or 'fun' things sometimes, but it doesn't really bother me anymore, I'm just glad that these amazing books get tributed with awesome movies :)
I like the fact that DH is split into two as well, because it's such a full story that they can't really cut too much off, but also because it will just keep the excitement going for longer..I'll be so sad when the last movie comes out though, even if it is good :P

I like this meme, when I'm done with my other 30day one, I might start this one ;)

No, me neither really. I think the movies were never going to be as good as the books, but I'm still glad they made them. I want some shippy goodness once we get to that point.

Ooo, do it! I love reading other people's Potter!Squee.

I used to hate PoA with the heat of a thousand suns, but I was a Marauder fangirl (in an embarrassing way, though I was less annoying about it than my fellow teens who wanted to marry Ashton Kutcher and Clay "OMG he's not gay at all!" Aiken). Now I'm not and I can tolerate the lack of Marauders much more.

I just realized you have all these tags for Glee and The Office characters. Have I been missing all these fanfics? If so, I may request drabbles from those fandoms.

Lol, I wasn't as fangirl-y about that as some people were for sure. I was always kind of a Hermione fangirl more than anything. Admittedly, my teenage pinings were mostly over Adam Brody and Milo Ventimiglia.

For Glee, yes, I have a masterlist over at [Bad username: upanotheroctave"]. Admittedly, a lot of it is Puck/Quinn stuff, but there's some ensemble fic going on as well.

The Office, no. I think those are from my weekly TV Review. And there might've been a 15 word drabble meme. Feel free to request anything you want though. :)

Word. HPB was a particularly failsome adaptation. And I'm a fan generally of the others.
