    I can't tell you how glad I am that she abandoned this style of writing almost immediately with the following book.
    Nawww, it's such a British middle class way of talking and that's exactly what they are.
    It's a troutty way of writing though. It comes off as extremely amateurish. Now granted, she WAS when she wrote this, but it really just...isn't good.

    "It's lucky it's dark. I haven't blushed so much since Madame Pomfrey told me she liked my new earmuffs."

    Y'all, Albus Dumbledore is on the scene.

    I miss Book 1 and Book 2 Dumbledore. Later on, he becomes a douche.

    Ravenclaw here! I’m glad thats the House I got sorted to because blue is my favorite color

    Also, I think I’m the only person in existence who actually vastly prefers Gambon’s Dumbledore to Harris’s. And that’s both in the books and the movies. I know he’s the same throughout the books but maybe kinda summed it up nice that we get a different perspective on him after book 2. Give me those morally gray, complicated mentors, rather than an infallible beardy dude you can just fall back on because adults appear to be infallible when you’re eleven.

    yeah I always get ravenclaw when I take tests. Which works out cause I love riddles and witty things make me chuckle and that's apparently what they're known for. And while I do find my self to be more courageous, not to the extent of Gryffindors. And While I find myself being a particularly good finder, not that good to be a hufflepuff.

    Which comes to slytherin. I don't feel like I fit into it that well but I can be quite devious from time to time. Luckily Ravenclaw shares that with slytherin so that works out for me.

    Ehhh It just reeks of british humor really. Very reminiscent of Douglas Adams

    Is Gambon Dumbledore the " DID YOU PUT YOUR NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIRE 'ARRY ?" one ?

    And I hate how people keep bringing it up that scene because that scene is interpreted differently, as itís an adaptation not a 1 to 1 translation from book to screen and the book shouldnít be treated like a script

    I'm with Fynn, I prefer Gambon Dumbledore. Harris Dumbledore just lacked that little spark of life (oh god I'm so sorry) that sets him out from the crowd.

    I think Harrisdore captured the whimsical side of Dumbledore better, and I think Gambondore captured the powerful side of Dumbledore better. I also think that probably if the man hadn't been dying from cancer, he would've been much more vibrant.

    I think Harrisdore definitely looked more like the Dumbledore in my head, though.

    I also think it's somewhat unfair to compare the two simply because we got 2 movies with Harris, and we got 6 with Gambon.

    That's fair and I don't disagree with any of that. Say something controversial I can fight you over, like movie Ginny > book Ginny.
