Yes, yes, yes! Since almost nothing of interest happened today, aside from me reading the first few books of some new manga series, which I doubt anyone is interested in my thoughts on (namely The Third, Mixed Vegetables, and Record of a Fallen Vampire), it's finally time for me to post my long, long, long-awaited story reduction of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix... now that we're only a few short months away from news of the next delay in the Half-Blood Prince movie, it's probably way overdue. As usual, I've put in plenty of jokes based on the differences between the movie and book versions, but this time, there's also a set of running gags about just how long and boring the book was compared to how much actually happened. If you don't think so, consider that my reduction of the fifth book is probably about as long as the first book. At least on par with the collected works of Beedle the Bard. So, with further ado, I present the necessary disclaimer.

WARNING: As the book series is already complete as of this posting (the seventh book came out not much after the fifth movie), and the fifth book was the one that really began in earnest the practice of revealing information key to the end of the series without revealing its significance at the time, this reduction not only contains explicit spoilers for Order of the Phoenix, but also some small, not particularly explicit spoilers for the last two books. If you haven't read them, you probably won't even know they're there. Like the books themselves, it might be fun to come back and reread it when you know more.

The correct order is O before E.Collapse )

And that was my day.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
