I actually wanted JK Rowling to die before she finished the last book.

Why?

So that Potter fans will know the pain of every hitchhiker fan out there that had to stop at mostly harmless. Douglas Adams (A british writer that actually writes like a british writer. JK writes like an american) died before he could finish the last book. It was kind of put together and released as an biography thing (Don't quote me, I haven't read it it. I'm on the Dirk Gently series).

I kinda wanted them to know that, but with a much better book series, y'know?

Yeah, blam me...

I thought Dirk Gently was just a user on UG.... am I stupid?


He's both.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

Hitch Hiker is waaaay better than Harry Potter. I like Harry Potter, but the HHGTTG series are by far my favourite books ever.

well me personally, i wouldn't want her to die having waited over 8 years for the final book. i was never a die hard fan, but the books were always enjoyable, and since my interest in them have dramatically increased in the last week or so, her death without the production of the final book would upset me.

That is the most ludicrous reasoning for wishing someone dead I think I have ever heard. Although I assume you're joking.

Anyway, I'm currently reading the Restaurant at the End of the Universe. It's great

You are a complete asshole. Simply put. First of all, you wish death on somebody simply because they wrote a book series you might not particularly like. Furthermore, you are wishing death on her so her "fans" will experience a bad feeling of not being able to finish reading the books. You are essentially wanting millions of people to be disappointed. Perhaps, because you felt the same feeling with the Hitchikers Guide series. You are completely selfish, and a heartless bastard. I am not a huge fan of the Harry Potter series, but I am glad Rowling has already finished the last book so pricks like you get no satisfaction.

In a way i agree

Hitchhikers is a good series, no doubt. I, however enjoy Harry Potter more.

And, in all honesty, you suck ass threadstarter. Even if I wasn't a Harry Potter fan, I would still be angry at you for saying that. And you're a Christian? You should never wish bad on another person.

Doing something like this is saying "I was John Bonham died so that he wouldn't get to record another album with Led Zeppelin, just because I'm angry that John Lennon died and the Beatles didn't get to make another album."

You see how stupid and pointless that is? One person dying is bad. Two people dying is worse.

You know the same thing almost happened to stephen kings gunslinger series. He got in an accident and almost died, but he survived, and he finished the series. The Gunslinger is like the greatest book series I've ever read. It whoops Harry potters ass.

EDIT: TS, you're a heartless jackass to wish for somebody to die

Harry and Luna?!?

that thought did come across my mind in the 6th book, but i've been pro Hermione/Harry for the longest time.

the fact that Rowling decided to make the couples as Ginny/Harry and Ron/Hermione kind of let me down, but i think she did it because everyone was expecting a Harry/Hermione relationship. (even though Hermione does kiss harry on the cheek in the fourth book, i was so hopeful )

I like the Luna/Harry idea, it slipped into my thoughts when I saw it.

I'd be all for it.

so would i actually, Luna's better than Ginny. the thought came to my mind after seeing the order of the phoenix movie. then i read half blood prince and the thought was better embedded into my mind.

but after all these years, i'm still rooting for the Harry/Hermione match no matter how unlikely it is.

ouch dude. that hurts. Seriously, who's the asshole here?

I think I may have misspoke. If she were to die before deathly hallows was finished, I wouldn't necessarily dance in the streets and have tupperware parties (or whatever the hell one does in the revolution aftermath). I'm just saying, I'd have a good laugh, pat the potter fan on the back and say "Welcome to the club. Hats are in the gift shop."

/\Somebody better sig that/\

and I did read the first 4 books, and half of the 5th. I was tired of the depressing...ness. Plus, I read through the 4th book as soon as it came out, so when I picked up the 5th one, I kept reading over names I didn't recognize, and didn't feel like playing catch up. it was about this time that I saw the new hitchhiker movie, and wanted to read the books. End of story.

i was never a die hard fan as i said, but i still enjoyed the books. i never understood every single name and every single detail that was written, but i still knew what the basis of the story was. you shouldn't wish death on someone just because the books didn't become enjoyable to you anymore.

Go back to the very first post. I didn't want her dead cuz the books sucked. They were good, and a fun leisurely read. But so was HHGTTG.

and people in HH flew without the aid of cleaning equipment. think about it.

The only people I would ever want to wish death upon people who start genocides and wars. And, of course, Rosie O' Donnell. But she fits in there too.

Okay, perhaps I was a bit harsh. In all honesty, however, what you said was completely selfish. Wanting other people to know what you felt. Thats like saying because my parents divorced, I want everyone elses parents to divorce. It's just terrible to wish something like that upon anyone. You get what I'm pointing at. Perhaps I was incredibly rude in my first post, but what you said was completely idiotic.

Since it has already been stated...

I don't wish death on anyone, but the next book does come out in like 4-5 days, so her dying wouldn't have any effect on the books now.

ok, so because you found a book who's author died, you simply want another author to die just so harry potter fans can feel bad about not having the story completed. that's rather preposterous if you ask me.

i think if she kills him in the book some overly obsessed HP fan will come to her house and shoot her


it's likely Harry will die, but i would agree with your theory
