The End Is Near


It's almost the end. It's just hitting me. Yesterday, I bought the Deathly Hallows Part 1 DVD. About tn minutes into watching it, it just really hit me and I started crying. This, Harry Potter, is so precious to me. Not only did I grow up with the characters, but I also feel like I grew up with the actors in the films. Dan, Emma, and Rupert are almost distant friends of mine in my head and in my heart. I bawled after I finished the seventh book, but I could at least find consolation in knowing there were several more movies coming out. Though, I am not and have never been a huge fan of the movies, I really liked Deathly Hallows Part 1. For the first time, I thought the acting and directing was as good as the cinematography. Then the Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened and it was all Christmas-come-early and just a little bit more HP. But after July, then what? Where will my childhood friend be? I just can't believe this goliath, this behemoth of a story and of a franchise, is coming to a real and total end. I am having such a hard time coming to any kind of terms with this.
