Halloween Read-A-Thon Mini Challenge!

Hello, and Welcome to a Mini Challenge for:

What is the challenge you ask?

Well, we are all familiar with the Harry Potter Series... whether you've read it and love it, despise it or just won't read it on principle, seen the movies, or just heard more about them than you ever cared to... we all know what it's about and who the main players are!

Your challenge?

Create a tombstone catch phrase for one of the characters.


"Here Lies Mad Eye Moody,  I think..."

"Hermione Granger,
Beloved Daughter, friend and
insufferable know-it-all"

Tombstone #1: "Here lies Hagrid"
Tombstone #2 (right next to #1) "And Here"
Tombstone #3 (next to #2) "And Here"

... hopefully that makes sense! The funnier the better!
On the 17th I will put entries up for public voting, and we will narrow it down to one winner!

To Enter, just leave a comment on this post with your tombstone catch phrase and an email address where I can contact you if you win! 
This contest is International.

The Prizes:
An Emily the Strange Gift Pack, including:

Emily's Secret Book of Strange

Emily the Strange's Odd-I-See Ouija Board
