Aitch-Pee Agony

As we all know, The 7th Harry Potter book has been leaked onto the internet. This is lame for any number of reasons (denial of right to first publish for one) and I'm really upset about it.

For this reason, I'm staying away from my f-list until the books come out. I really don't want to, because I love you guy, but I keep seeing flirtations with the dark side and I really don't want to know anything until I after I have cracked the spine of my very own hard-cover copy, smelling of new-book-binding and freshly laid ink. Complete with soft, virginal pages.

Some of you are already on a hiatus. I want to know, of the ones that aren't, who of you is absolutely devoted to avoiding spoilers. I will make a custom friends tier that I can trust to read, 'cause otherwise I'll probably be way too bored for my own good.

Poll #1023833 Allies

Do you solemnly swear to avoid all spoilers?

I do!

I wish I could, but some jerk already spoiled it for me. I won't blab about them though!

Sorry, but no.

ETA: Comments are Friends Only until Saturday, just to be safe. Sorry VB.

This is actually my last check of the friendlist because I'm going on hiatus. My mom and I were just talking about how sad that people spoiled themselves since the fun of it is to read what happens to everyone.

I'll miss you too1 <3 I'm doing it mostly because I've already read some people in my flist saying they spoiled it for other people. Don't want to risk it and all.

Sorry to hear about your tire. That really sucks.

Thanks! I called my pa and he says it's covered under warranty since the tires only have 15,000 miles on 'em. So that's good.

Good luck keeping your eyes safe!

The only things I've been whining about the spoilers is that I know them. But I'd never say what they are because I don't want to ruin it for other people.

You're safe with me for three reasons:

1) I rarely actually post.
2) My apathy for all things Potter means that the odds of my knowing spoilers, let alone writing about them, are only slightly better than the odds I'll run out and run barefoot through a bed of hot coals.
3) I'm not the kind of assratchet who would ruin someone else's enjoyment of a book in such a fashion, even if I did know anything. (See #2)

I just wish I was the clever wag who came up with one I saw recently in an epic metaquotes posting: Assbonnet.

I read the first one and thought it was allright, but I didn't find myself caring enough about any of the characters to read any more than that.

My entire flist is going on hiatus! There will be no one left online by the time the book hits stores.

It sucks that there are people out there who want to ruin it for everyone else. I def. wont be posting any spoilers and if I do it'll be behind a cut.

I know! Everyone is going away. It's sad. :( I was going to try to set up a get-together but now no one will be online for me to contact. :(

I'm avoiding spoilers like the plague. But I do think I'm going on hiatus soon also because the book has leaked and I don't want to read anything about DH until I have the actual book in my hands!

You can trust that I feel the same way and I'm never going to say anything about it until the bok comes out, and even then I'm going to keep everything behind cuts for people who may read slower.

No!
Darth Vader is Harry's father! And Yoda's going to train him to fight Voldemort! Harry will die in the final battle and LOLcat is going to be the one to kill Voldemort, taking him drunk and unawares at his victory party! Mwa ha! Hahahaha!

Re: No!
One of these days, Spencer... ;)

P.S. I watched that "Luke, I am your father," scene the other day and hoy mother of God in heaven, I don't think I've ever seen such over-the-top, campy, melodramatic crap.
