So I finally finished Half-Blood Prince... finally... and seemingly just in fucking time because every new post to hp_graphics is jam-packed with HBP spoiler icons. (Hint: like my new icon?) I cried a bit, I'll admit that much. I think it didn't quite hit me until after I turned to my sister and said, "HA! I knew he was the Half-Blood Prince!" Then read two more paragraphs and kinda... yeah. Those of you who've read it know what I'm talking about. I didn't read any of your reviews or reactions because I hadn't finished it yet, but I'm sure you understand the shock factor involved.
