I don't know, but the snake that Harry freed in the first book is the one Voldemort used as a horcrux.

Do you mean, used the same snake to film? Because if you mean that the snake in the first one was Nagini then no that's wrong.
User avatar #51 to #41 - huashuashuas (01/03/2013) [-]
no it wasn't... the one Harry freed was from south america, and Voldemort had Nagini before that incident, and Nagini wasn't from south america

I think she did a giant list of them but i cannot remember where i saw it.

Apparently 'Sectum Sempra' (snapes self-created signature spell) meant 'Sever Forever'

Always thought that was cool. Especially if you remember when he cut off George's ear it couldn't be regrown because of the spell.

That... that's actually pretty cool. She was one clever bitch.

"The curtains were blue" - Some author.

Meaning - "The author's immense depression and his lack of will to carry on"
- "The curtains were ******* blue"

I actually just recently read the play "Death of a Salesman", the first words said by Willy (The Main character) in it are, "It's alright I came back", now if we take this apart and look too much into it we can see this.

It's alright- It is alright, symbolic of being ok, as seen from the title of the book, we see that things will not be ok, this is an example of irony, because he said that every things ok when really it's not going to be ok, this gives us more insight about what will happen later on in the play

I came back- He is saying that he came back, this has two meanings, the first meaning would be that, he is coming back, or that he came back home, he did come back home, but later on in the play we see that he gets in his car and he kills himself for insurance money, so no, he did not come back, this is also seen as irony, and gives us some insight abouut what may happen later on in the play. the second meaning is that, he "came" on someones back. Later on in the play we see a new character named "The Women", which i a women that willy has an affair with, when sexual intercourse occurs, to avoid pregnancy the man with unload on the women's body. By coming on her back, we see that the women likes anal, which may be why Willy gets less tense whenever he finishes having sex with her. This gives us insight about what may happen later in the play.

What can we conclude from this?
You can make up so much ******** about random crap in books and plays, I made this up right on the spot. I do this all the time during English class, my most recent, taking a kid dancing with his dad, and turning it into a World War II reference. It's really fun and easy, I urge you guys to try it out for those of you who are in middle school or high school.

Asphodel- Regret
Wormwood- Absence

www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/asphodel
Asphodels are lilies.

Combining the two is regretting lily's absence.

What say you now?

Once again, I have to be a little whiney bitch, but seriously? Why do all LOTR fans think it completely necessary to comment on all Harry Potter content stating their OPINION on how much better LOTR is. Honestly, both series are great, if you don't like it, don't say anything. Thankfully, not all LOTR fans are like this, only the ones who are somewhat immature.
