I could never think you were being mean cos that's like, so NOT you. *glomp* And, HOLY CRAP THE WHOLE THING IS MADE OF PRETTY. I love it more than the OotP soundtrack. Both tracks kind of mirror each other with the arpeggio. They're very floaty for the lack of a better term. The strings are gorgeously understated and tender in WGKH and in H&H very presently supportive of the melody. In other words, perfect musical representations of Harry's relationships with both women, respectively.

I'm a sucker for the ambient deep couch impressionistic moody type of tracks but I'm a total sucker for movie scores. Nyyyyaaaarrrrggghh!

I almost feel like sobbing during the first couple of minutes of "The Opening" because the choir parts sounds almost like children crying to me, which is representative of poor Harry and all the kids in the stories.

WORD. I was talking to The Bro about HP the other day... actually we were arguing if we should go see the movie or not and inevitably we ended up comparing and contrasting film v. text... within the words on page it really hits you that Ole Whatshisnose is trying to kill children. CHILDREN. It's a very horrific thing that takes you aback for a second within the context of the books mostly, I think, it's because his traits very much so mirror Hitler, Pol Pot, Lenin, Milosovich etc etc but when it happens within the context of the movies the dread and horror is lessened because it's in a heightened visual medium which detracts from the weightiness of his action(s). Killing children. Oh, fandom.

Gah, the Adama/Roslin theme song makes me so saaaad. That's the one that plays when he's helping steady her after she makes him Admiral, y/y? It crushes my heart under the weight of its beautiful angstiness, it makes it hurt to breathe.

*sighs* There's no point mourning Harry/Hermione now, water under the bridge and all that, but...I can't quite let go of my disappointment and resentment. It's kinda like with Enterprise when T'Pol ends up with the dumbass sidekick instead of the main dude. Like, WHYYYY? With some ships, I get that the snarking and constant insult-trading is to hide people noticing their interest in the other person but come oooon. Ron's a real jerk sometimes. I don't get it. Friendship, I could understand, but true love? NOT SEEING IT.

Maybe it's because he seems so immature- and okay, I was so down on Harry for being whiny-ass angst-central for a while, but it's because of his destiny and coping with impending death and his losses and all that which makes him seem a little more mature and hence on Hermione's level. Or near her level. She pwns both boys' brains put together.

I CALL REWRITE. Will someone go redo the entire series for me? Pretty please? *sighs* Well, if you have any fic recs, I'd appreciate it. I've been on a HP-Buffy crossover binge the past few weeks and being forced to wade through Hermione/Ron is making me want to spork my eyes out.

Yes. And, yes the Roslin/Adama theme kills. every. time. I love that it's really a waltz. A celtic waltz at that. WIN! Plus, it gets all uplifty and hopeful at the end but then you start to remember the end of Daybreak II and you know how it ends and omg!TEARS!

...uhm, are you talking about Trip?? Cos I totally thought T'pol/Trip > T'pol/Archer. *shrug* Buuuuuut, to each they're own. I couldn't get over Quantum as a starfleet captain. *snickers* Oh, fandom. *pets*

ASKDFLJ!!! I shouldn't love H/Hr as much as I do cos it just breaks my heart. so. hard. Ron can be such a prat. Oi! For me hero + brainy best girl friend + death defying acts + loyalty + LOVE = SUNNY!MUST!SHIP! So yes, I live in denial and delusion and fanonland made of LOVE cos there are no evil bunnies.

Vox Corporis by MissAnnThropic on portkey. Holy crap it's epic (68 chaps + epilogue) but TOTALLY worth it and limited on the Ron stuff. Post GoF. ETA: Also, Harry and Hermione learn to be animagi.

Anything on fanfict00bs

Between the Lines by jacyevans. During DH (the parts JKR didn't have the guts to write basically) and a slow gradual build-up to the YES! moment but then it gets fabulously angsty. TOTALLY worth it.

The Weight of Unraveling by jacyevans. Holy crap, affair!fic can be so right sometimes.

Five Moments That Changed Hermione Granger's Life by jacyevans.

...and obviously anything by jacyevans

There Goes the World by goldy_dollar. Post OotP. Dark!Harry.

This SUPER AWESOME Rec!Post from aj over at het_reccers

THIS extremely long and multifaceted fic!roundup by acoustic1220

...that should get you started. I have more if you need. *giggle* I told you I should love them as much as I do...
