    I’m lovin’ ‘Always a Bastard to Me’. Listened to it three times. Always liked the filks though, and I knew I’d love one but still.

    Awesome episode, guys!

    I really want to listen, but for some reason, the episode is “greyed out” at iTunes. Is it no longer available there and only available as a direct download here?

    Missed you guys!!

    I love this Episode! Just like the Good Old Days :)

    I am still listening, savoring every minute of it :)

    btw, in regards as to how to pronounce Accio (which you brought up), I like to pronounce the A like in Apple, and the cc like ch. I think, at least, it supposed to be ch, because I read in a forum on this topic that that’s the real way to say it. It kinda annoys me any time somebody doesn’t therefore, pronounce it that way, because it’s wrong!

  14. On April 28th, 2008 Erin said:

    I’ve always pronounced it like they do in the movies. Ack -like you’re retching and io – like the end of cheerio.

    Lovely episode! I’m so glad that the Snape-ing continues, even though I’m in Australia and can only hear about the awesome stuff you guys organise.

    Severus Snape is probably the secret hero of many a fangirl (and fanboy), and it feels amazing to honour his contribution to fandom, especially when in the distant and oh-so Snape-less future, he’ll be a whisper… a man of legend. We’ve all seen him through his good days and bad, and I at least have disliked, liked and loved him through the telling of his story.

    I also have a small request: can the Snape songs you sing on these episodes be made into a fanmix? I think you have great voices, and the lyrics just make me laugh so much. I’d love to listen to them as I wait for your next episodes.

    Happy Snape-ing!

    Well, they do tend to do things a bit wrong in the movies, anyway. You’d think with Rowling there as a reference they’d get it right, but I guess she doesn’t mind the small things.

    I wish she’d corrected them with Tonks, though, and now with Narcissa!

    Okay, so you had me crying again during the closing song.
