This I understand. Because when I read a book the characters become mine. They exist in my head after all. In a way that's why I don't get into fandoms for the most part. Because other people having these people in their heads makes me....jealous? God....that's pretty sad, but really quite true. HP was different, but only a little really. I still sometimes find myself mentally snatching characters away from people and shouting "MINE" in my head. Heh.

Maybe that's why I can not read the end of the book sometimes. Because while I read it they belong to me, and if I want them to live and head the forefront of the Irish Pride movement then that's up to me.
