Re: Things You Didn't Catch at First

For some reason, the first three times I read the passage that goes something like "Charlie overtook Horace Slughorn as they returned at the head of what looked like every family member and friend of every Hogwarts student", I thought that it said something that all the Slytherin students returned too, and that's why Phineas' portrait was all "And don't let it be forgotten that Slytherin house played it's part too!"
- but that totally didn't happen..

Also, the first time, I didn't catch that Dean ended up duelling Dolohov, after Tonks ran after Lupin after finding out that he was duelling Dolohov.
- Perhaps we should have realised there that Lupin was a goner =[

Re: Things You Didn't Catch at First

i must admit, i am being honest here. i had a bit of a err- 'blonde' moment. no offence to any blonds or anything.
The joke George says, the whole 'Holey' thing when he has lost his ear, i had to read that twice, before realising it was a joke he was saying, and he was refering to his ear, or where his ear was. what?/ don't look at me like that! i was upset at Hedwig's death alright?

Re: Things You Didn't Catch at First

Something I have caught on my second reading is this bit
Quote:
'When I get married,' said Fred, tugging at the collar of his own robes, 'I won't be bothering with any of this nonsense. you can all wear what you like, and I'll put a full Body-Bind Curse on Mum until it's all over.'
I got a big lump in my throat as he had so much of his life ahead of him.

That was one I did not catch either until I re-read the book.

Re: Things You Didn't Catch at First

I am just starting my reread of the whole book (I had already read several chapters more than once). Mad Eye Moody tells Harry that they are going to create seven Harry's as a diversion. He figures that Voldemort can't split himself into seven to chase every one of them. Harry looks over to Hermione with a meaningful glance because both of them know that Voldemort did split his soul into seven (at least that is what they think at this point in the story).

I had the same reaction as you did. When I read it the second time, I was like... oh my gosh. It didn't seem as funny the second time round, did it?

I read a lot of things more slowly... I actually didn't notice how Bellatrix died until my second read. I also didn't notice everything that was happening when Ron was destroying the locket Horcrux. Everything the soul-thingy was saying only made sense to me when I read it the second time.

Re: Things You Didn't Catch at First

The Ron/Hermione kiss. I only caught it on the second read through. It was great to spot it, but I still maintain that the Harry/Ginny kiss was more passionate and beautiful.

I thought that on my second read as well.

Re: Things You Didn't Catch at First

It wasn't until the on line chat that I found out that Bellatrix killed Tonks. I don't think it is is the book. Now that I am reading the book a second time I see that Tonks was talking about Bellatrix trying to kill her during the rescue of Harry from Privot Drive.

Re: Things You Didn't Catch at First

I didn't realize until my second reading that Charlie was at the battle. Alnd there were also certain parts where I really didn't understand what was going on until the second reading, mainly Snape's death and memories [with the silvery fluid.]

Re: Things You Didn't Catch at First

I didn't realize that in the first chapter, the "wailing" we hear after Voldemort says he will kill Harry Potter, after which he tells Wormtail to "take care of the prisoner", was actually from...Ollivander. In my rushed first read I had thought it referred to Charity Burbage.

Re: Things You Didn't Catch at First

I completely missed the golden flame stuff shooting from Harry's wand until I got to the part that he mentioned it, then i had to comb through the fight to find it. I also missed the fact that ron and hermione kissed. and at first i didn't understand that lupin and tonks were dead.

Re: Things You Didn't Catch at First

I didn't know the first time that Bellatrix killed Tonks, I don't think this was mentioned in the book, but this means she got at least one of her wishes, she trimmed Tonks off of her Family tree, if you remember the beginning when she was ridiculed by the death eaters for having a blood traitor niece who married a werewolf, she was most hurt by the nasty jab voldemort gave her since she loved him, and it irks me that she got her wish.

Also i didn't catch the fact that the smell in Bathilda's house was her rotting body, and how could her body have been in the pile of clothes because Nagini was inside her body and it must have had some of the body and not just skin because a snake in just skin would not look like a person (sorry this is kinda gross)

Re: Things You Didn't Catch at First

Big thing I noticed:

Ron says Voldemort's name without fear on page 83 of the English Edition. Something along the lines of "I forgot, we're going to be hunting Voldemort down in a mobile library."

Big character moment I would say.

Cheers,
Talen

Re: Things You Didn't Catch at First

I didn't get that Voldy was talking about Tonks when he was going on about pruning the family tree. I thought for some reason he wanted them to kill Draco.

Ooh, I didn't notice that, i think that might actually be a mistake because Ron doesn't strike me as someone who would ever use Voldy's name.

Re: Things You Didn't Catch at First

I didn't realize until I read the book for the second time that the bird Harry sees flying past the window when he is at the Lovegood's is the owl Mr Lovegood sent to the Ministry, telling them about Harry being at his place.
