to whoever leaked the Deathly Hallows

July 18th, 2007 (12:21 pm)

Fuck you very much.

I'm doing my part to avoid spoilers online, but it's a little difficult to avoid my roommates loudly discussing spoilers IN MY OWN APARTMENT. I heard part of one sentence, then wheeled around the corner to ask them to shut the hell up. They did. It wasn't excessively major, but it was major enough. Thank you very much, guys. It may not mean much in the scheme of things, but right now I'm earnestly hoping that the publisher finds whoever leaked the book and pounds the living daylights out of him or her to such a degree that the jerk regrets for years those four or five days of feeling smug.

Maybe I'll go to the range. At least there people won't look at me funny if I wear ear protection.

God, I know how you feel! Except it was a bunch of drunk girls outside my apartment at 3 in the morning and I had my window open because it was fricking HOT. I stumbled over my side table, computer chair, strewn power cables and managed to slam the window before I heard too much, but STILL. Not RIGHT.

I'm this close to downloading the photo-page-by-page in a weird sort of defense mechanism of "if I actually READ the book instead of hear/read spoilers, than it's...okay, right? RIGHT?"

Except for the part where it's NOT.

If you treat it like a sneak preview and don't talk about it then why would that be wrong? I have one friend who saw Serenity /months/ early.


I'm also lucky in that I seem to have escaped the koolaide - Spoilers don't much bother me unless they're the level of the titles for OOP's soundtrack, and most of the people I spend time around are pretty closelipped about such thingsa.

boom

Cheer up. First, there is apparently more than one version floating around, at least in various pieces. And I've seen someone give a long, technical explanation of why one of them (the "complete" version) is at least partly faked--the text is poorly aligned in a way that suggests it's computer-generated and was photoshopped to make it look like it was actually on the page. The explanation was complete with diagrams and a picture of HBP taken from the same angle, in the same lighting conditions, for comparison. I have no idea how much this person knew, but she at least sounded like she knew what she was talking about. She could still have been talking out her ass, but if it was BS it was good BS.
