14. Moments in the books/movies that made you cry

Dumbledore's death/funeral. I was a great big mess reading that. I may have cried in the movie, too, I'm not sure, but in the book those scenes were so powerful. God, the phoenix lament. The idea of Fawke's singing... gah.

Also, Dobby's death. God. Dobby. I read DH while staying with [livejournal.com profile] chibitoaster and [livejournal.com profile] cocohufflepuffs (chain-smoking Nat Sherman's on the porch in Nebraska summer, sitting on the rail because I couldn't put it down long enough to go back inside, and oh, since I'm out here *lights another*) and I read it faster than them, and since we couldn't not talk about it, I made it my thing to just listen to the others talk about it and their thoughts and not say much of anything. And at one point Rana was all 'I don't think I could handle it if Dobby died', and I was *swallow*.

Everything in the final battle happened a little too fast, I think, for me to really cry over it. But I remember closing the book for a few moments after Fred and whispering (lest the others hear me) you bitch. Because, although I didn't cry, it was the most horrible death I could have imagined.
