NewAmy, I have the same series out on DVD right now! Joseph Campbell rocks! You said it perfectly, I totally agree that Dumbledore has to be out of the picture for the hero to come fully into his own.

ETA: Your welcome Chrislt8. Here we can speculate to our heart's content. :D Although I confess, even these I'm only skimming, I don't want to know too much! I like to be surprised!

It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
