Marathoning

20 Feb

large

This past Saturday into Sunday morning, Rachel and I went over to a friend’s house and marathoned all eight of the Harry Potter movies.

It was marvelous!

We had done this before last summer, except we started the movies later in the evening and ended up sleeping through most of them. This time we were better prepared, starting early in the morning with some coffee and doughnuts. We spent part of the movies with our coloring books (mine was actually a Harry Potter one) and playing Harry Potter Clue, aside from eating.

Rachel and I actually stayed awake throughout the 19-ish hours it took to watch every movie (our friend took a couple of naps), and we ended up making our way back home about quarter to four in the morning.

While it was odd not to work on writing or anything blog-related throughout Saturday, it was nice to have that downtime. We compared the movies to the books multiple times, and it was great reminiscing about and discussing the magic and the feelings we have for the series, from favorite parts and characters to aspects we’d tweak and make a bit different.

Despite how long it’s been since this series has been first written, it still captures our hearts and imaginations, welcoming us home.

    The only problem now is that I keep thinking about Harry Potter… I just want to keep watching the movies, reread the books, be Emma Watson, and… you know what? Just give me my Hogwarts letter already!
