Seamus Finnigan: Character Study, Part 2

The Muggle Prime Minister: Character Study

Alice and Martha discuss the first unnamed character to win the Real Weirdo, Canonical John Major!

Neville Longbottom: Character Study, Part 7

Alice, Martha, and Jim Dale are back to finish discussing Neville. In the seventh book, Neville becomes--there's no other word for it--cool. As usual, this is obvious to readers through his long hair, his casual demeanor, and his habit of calling people by the first syllable of their name. Neville's arc is one of the best of the series, and Alice and Martha do take a break from mocking him to praise his final moments. Please consider supporting us on Patreon! www.patreon.com/realweirdsistersNew episodes are released every Monday and special topics shows are released periodically.

Neville Longbottom: Character Study, Part 6

Neville's arc continues in the sixth book, though perhaps not quite as gracefully as readers might hope - there's still plenty of falling on his back, hitting his head, and of course, lighting his own pants on fire!

Neville Longbottom: Character Study, Part 3

Alice and Martha pick up their conversation on Neville from several years ago, this time, hopefully, without repeating any content!

But with the revelation about what happened to his parents, Harry and readers begin to see Neville in a new light. Please consider supporting us on Patreon! www.patreon.com/realweirdsistersNew episodes are released every Monday and special topics shows are released periodically.

It's all come down to this: after all, neither can live while the other survives. Put simply, Harry got to the wand weeks ago; Tom Riddle is too late.

7.35 King's Cross

Alice and Martha once again find themselves on different sides of the aisle regarding what exactly is happening in this chapter. However, we can all agree that the gleam of triumph in Dumbledore's eyes following Voldemort's return was thanks to the fact that he would no longer have to coerce Harry into becoming blood brothers with Ron. And in his underrated decision to return to life, Harry is the man in the million and seems to know it (after all, he is a jock who became a cop).

7.31 The Battle of Hogwarts

Luckily for you, Alice and Martha have not, to use the common phrase, done a bunk this week, though they might have to if all the Slytherin listeners start coming for them! Harry tracks down the Gray Lady, who really might want to consider taking out a restraining order on "The Baron," and finds his way to the Room of Hidden Things to get his hands on the the die-dum. And don't forget that in the midst of all this chaos, the Battle of Hogwarts has officially begun, and Percy is about to make Fred laugh for the first and last time. :( Please consider supporting us on Patreon! www.patreon.com/realweirdsisters.Spoiler warning!

7.30 The Sacking of Severus Snape

It's too bad Flight of the Prince has already been taken, because that really would have been a much better title for this chapter--well, or, The Carrows Come to Call. While Ron and Hermione rush off to find a "bathroom," Harry acts on Dumbledore's orders and tries to tract down the missing diadem (which, in case you forgot, is a bit like a crown). Finally, as the entire DA and Order rush out to fight in a most organized fashion, the prodigal Weasley son returns and finally gets to meet his sister-in-law.

7.29 The Lost Diadem

Neville's back, and he's a changed man, from his newfound confidence to his shrunken arm. At the same time, gossip king Terry Boot can barely contain his excitement, Michael Corner considers opening a bar (though the name is still undecided) and Cho Chang, Harry's ex-girlfriend, is as tempting as ever. All of this chaos does not impress Harry, who just wants to find the lost diadem (which is a bit like a crown).

7.28 The Missing Mirror

In the process of persuading the GOAT of his commitment to the mission, Harry ends up convincing himself, and proceeds with his nice job, which is the sort of thing you’d expect an unqualified wizard kid to be able to do without overstretching themselves. Meanwhile, Ron stuffs himself with cheese and mead, though he definitely missed the opportunity for some firewhisky- that bloke definitely would have sold him anything, he wouldn't care.

7.27 The Final Hiding Place

Heh! $%&*#!! Three highly edible humans take a joyride on the back of a dragon - in case you hadn't noticed, they just broke out of Gringotts. They're covered in burns, but it's nothing a little dittany and pumpkin juice can't fix. At least they're not wearing the cup around their necks, that would look weird! And to wrap up this very short chapter, Harry gets a highly gratifying "I told you so moment" when the location of the last Horcrux is confirmed.
