No. 188457

At this point none of the new /m/ threads will be temporary… Anyway, seeing JKR politely telling everyone to seethe and dilate makes me want to reread all the HP books but this time in English. Maybe I should also read her murder mystery books, are they good?

No. 188458

no judgement here why does she suck to you? I'm pretty neutral on her, though I liked her a lot as a kid because of her relationship w/ the diary and Riddle which I found really interesting. still do, I suppose, but it's been a while. I guess I never really understood the hate. she's just boring. wasted potential to me but mostly inoffensive

No. 188460

The Riddle grooming was the only interesting thing about her (I recommended a nonnie here a great fic about it before /m/ got purged). by which I mean - Rowling fucked up older Ginny. No trauma, no depth, just a generic Mary Sue with no information how she grew into one despite having low self esteem as a child (facilitated by her parents not really giving a fuck about her) and going through horrific abuse. She just shows up to be a trophy gf for the protagonist

No. 188461

Kek rereading your post we agree, but I'm annoyed at the Ginny that we got. She's some libfem clapback Stacy who dates 3 dudes at a time because she's so desirable. She should be a neet posting here instead

No. 188462

The diary part was indeed interesting. After that I feel like she has no dept and is very mary sueish, very boring. What annoys me the most is her relationship with harry, why the hell would he be so over the moon for her when we saw all the other girls he met. Literally any of them would be better.

Anyway I just remembered that girlfriend ron had and how he treated her and also how he treated hermione during the goblet of fire and I guess I'm annoyed now with all the weasleys.

No. 188470

The Weasleys were a giant family of tards and the one who wanted a better life for himself was basically excommunicated. I never understood why people loved Fred & George so much, they were so fucking obnoxious and one of them dying didn't change much since they had the exact same personality.

For what it’s worth, JKR now wishes she would’ve written Harry/Hermione endgame instead.

No. 188477

she is right and she should say it. I hate her childhood friend kek

No. 188500

I wish we saw more about the other weasley brother (forgot his name, the dragon guy) and that flight teacher. I remember when I first read the books and watched the movies these two were the ones that interested me the most of all the adult characters.
This all makes me remember this embarrassing fic I wrote in my harry potter notebook when I was a kid. Thank God I had no internet/computer back then. It was about the dragon brother and newt scamander (who I assumed was a girl with a weird name).

No. 188547

I swear to god when I read the books as a kid I was certain Harry/Luna was endgame.

No. 188551

JKR would never do that, she loves the Weasleys too much (except for Ron I guess). When Deathly Hallows came out the fandom made fun of her endgame a bit by calling it OBHWF (one big happy Weasley family)

No. 188559

I think that was actually a fandom term in existence long before DH came out – I remember it as a blanket term for "I ship Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione, meaning everyone eventually becoming connected to the Weasley family"

No. 188595

I know its weird but as a kid I wanted harry to hook up with luna

No. 188701

Lots of people saw it too, they had great chemistry and Luna was way more relatable to Harry than Ginny due to being both outcasts with dead parents.

No. 188772

Curious, was that the case for you only due to the books or the films? I don't remember wanting the ship on chemistry grounds while reading the books.

No. 188806

Its been so long since I read them tbh I think I liked that Luna was little weird compared to Harry and I thought she was more interesting than Ginny, or Cho, or the other love interest. I remember thinking it was kind of odd that harry married his best friend's little sister. Like jk Rowling wanted to make an huge extended weasley family.

I don't have a big black dog in this fight (I ship the marauders with each other and Sirius with his brother) but if Snape was ever going to fuck Harry there's just no way he'd be able to do it without thinking of James Potter the whole time.

Exactly, I love the angst that comes with the ship.

JKR has always been so weirdly insistent that Sirius is straight which is hilarious to me because he actually comes off as the gayest marauders era character imo. I used to read a lot of Blackcest fanfic and got teased for liking it instead of Remus/Sirius (lame) but I still stand by it and also enjoy Sirius/James because Sirius is just so creepily obsessed with James who he also supposedly views as a replacement brother except in a gay way where they take off Snape's pants together. thank you jkr very based I hope Regulus didn't die a virgin.

No. 189155

I can get behind sirius/remus being kind of boring. I feel like all wolfstar fics read the same.

If I had to ship two marauders together it'd be Sirius/James, since I agree, Sirius is obsessed with him.

Regulus Black deserves only nice things.

No. 190132

You could excuse it with their circumstances though, with Sirius being in wizard Guantanamo and Remus being affected by the constant werewolf transformations. Overall I don't mind the adult characters being aged up, I've already mentioned it in another thread but I always thought Harry's parents having him and dying at 20 to be way too young and unrelatable, likewise Snape being in his late 40s was more believable for a stern teacher imo.

I posted this on the celbricows thread sometime back but it fits better here

I was looking up the careers of the main cast of Harry Potter, its kinda interesting how most of them chose to peruse their future when they had everything going for them

Emma Watson is the most successful out of all them, she's been in big budget Oscar bait films, done a lot of public activist work that has helped with her image
Daniel Radcliffe seems to do whatever interests him(probably wants to get away from the Harry Potter image) and so takes a lot of daring roles, such as a guy who fucks a horse, undercover white supremacist, gay poet, magical farting corpse e.t.c
Rupert Grint did a couple films after Harry Potter but stopped cause they weren't that successful and he understood he wasn't really leading man material, he seems happy with his money and royalties
Tom Felton does mostly independent films, the only real blockbuster film that he's done since Harry Potter was a small role in Planet of the apes

other then them all the actors who weren't already established like Robert Pattison or Helena Bonham Carter e.t.c, seemed to have been doomed for roles in mediocre British films, usually forgettable romcoms

No. 190217

Even beyond the fact that I wish they were hotter just so I could be looking at hotter men, I genuinely think this fucked up their movie characterization. The fact that they're only in their early-mid 30s but so clearly ravaged by poverty and prison is such a big part of who they are – having Sirius be walking around in those bizarre like, velvet waistcoats looking like a boring middle-aged man was so dumb.

I wish more people talked about this! I love Maggie Smith even, but McG in the books is so genuinely stern and severe and no-bs in a way Smith's McG just isn't.

Oh yeah, I loved it.

Gringots was my least favorite part because it was hard when I was a kid but when I replayed it was my favorite, super fun and I loved be out of Hogwarts, always wanted to explore these parts.
The second game my favorite part was the duels and the secret passages/chest/collectables.
Also I completely forgot about Peeves, annoying mofo grew on me, can't unhear his stupid laughter.

I hope I can make a better looking character in the new game and actually explore other parts of the wizard world (whatever they throw us), not expecting much besides that, the trailer showed more than I expected so I'm happy.

This is such a weird gripe. Yeah they're kids books but by the final book literally every main character is an adult. Also the last 2-3 books are literal war and death filled dramas.

kek this is hilarious. here in germany people who are somewhat online a lot and get their education from ig slides also talk about how shitty HP is, but then they have no problem sperging irl about how much they love HP. so i'm assuming everyone is just virtue signaling because it's fun to hate women in groups, similar to how people made fun of britney spears, lindsay lohan or paris hilton back in the day. also re: evil death eater house, ironically enough i saw a lot of fakebois with death eater tattoos. they are so obsessed with moral purity, but somehow fictional racism is ok and edgy kek. it makes no damn sense.

not even joking, her cormoran strike series is just about Rowling's self insert paired with her Idealized OC Husbando

>Cormoran Blue Strike is an ex-SIB investigator, and a veteran of the war in Afghanistan where he lost half his right leg in a bomb attack. He decides to muster out for fear of becoming brainwashed (yet misses the Army occasionally), choosing instead to become a private detective.

>His biological father, Jonny Rokeby, is a renowned rock star who had an affair with model and 'super groupie' Leda Strike, which led to Cormoran becoming his illegitimate son; Cormoran has almost no relationship to speak of with his father, apparently meeting just twice. The only one of his half-siblings to whom he is close is Lucy,
>At the start of the first novel, he meets Robin. Their relationship is complicated; he clearly finds her very attractive, but is extremely reluctant to admit this even to himself, trying to maintain a professional distance between them. This is a task that becomes progressively harder to fulfill as time passes, and is exacerbated by the fact that he has a number of unsatisfying relationships following his split from Charlotte. He values many of Robin's personal and professional qualities very highly.
>Strike is described as a physically imposing man, at least 6'3" in height, heavily build. He is hairy, and has dark wiry, curly hair, leading to some calling him 'pubehead'. His nose was twice broken during his military boxing career, then is broken again in the third novel. Although described as being 'not conventionally handsome', he seems to be attractive to a number of different women. He also appears to have prodigious appetites: for food—he is frequently described eating; for alcohol—he appears to be able to drink quite large amounts, and sexual—he describes himself as having an 'uninhibited libido'.

I can see that to be honest. One thing that always annoyed me is how no one seems to stop and consider how James and Lily weren’t perfect and were actually kind of assholes, they’re treated as martyrs throughout the entire book and as being just the best people ever but Lily was an insufferable spineless pick me and James was a relentless bully. Like we are very obviously (and rightfully so) meant to dislike Draco because he’s a bully, but like James who I argue is way worse than Draco ever was, since Draco was basically groomed to become a death eater and worse he did was call a few people a slur while James was out there physically and sexually harassing Snape but somehow he’s the hero of the story? I don’t get it. I guess the justification is just “Snape deserved it because he was probably going to become evil” which is dumb. If I was Snape i’d have let Voldemort kill Harry.

No. 191086

i have to admit that i like that. in books - especially children's books - you are very often presented with characters that are either purely good or purely bad. i feel like jkr did a very good job at showing that not every person that is on the morally good side is necessarily always a good person. lupin was a coward during his school days, he ignored whatever james and sirius did to snape even though he was prefect (or even head boy, i can't remember) and was supposed to keep them in line. jkr also wrote that james had infuriating habits like constantly playing with his hair iirc and sirius eventually snaps at him to stop doing that, which shows that james acts so full of himself that even his best friend is annoyed sometimes. i also guess that's just how a lot of popular people are sometimes. yeah, a lot of people like them, but a lot of them are also secretly glad that they are liked by the popular people and not being teased/bullied/assaulted by them. hell, even luna lovegood, whom everyone itt seems to like, is tactless and not always quirky in a non-offensive way that only benefits the good guys. i know it's infuriating sometimes, but i find it pretty cool that she put in the effort to make everyone even a little bit flawed.

No. 191087

i agree with you entirely i just wish she actually addressed this more, the characters are shown being assholes but they’re still treated as perfect and it’s never addressed how shitty they were

No. 191088

definitely. i think the only time it was ever addressed was when harry saw snape's memories and witnessed first hand how shitty james, sirius and lupin treated him. he had a really hard time processing that and actually felt bad for snape and realized that everything snape had said about james potter was actually true.

and you are autistic and schizo for holding a grudge for so long sorry i called people dumb for not not realizing what dog ears are

anyway i really don't understand the sperging over here about lily and james being so ToXiC people and this weird shit about lily being pick me or whatever.

where the hell do you even get that, she was basically a non character. we have absolutely no idea what she was like after school. and when we see her from the little scenes we get we see her insulting james, telling snape to fuck off for hurting her sister, so she seemed have enough sense to tell males to shove it when needed. her role in the story was basically to be admired by everyone, that's it, so calling her especially evil or pick me is just head canon. sure you could call her a bitch for marrying the guy who bullied her childhood best friend but she and snape were growing apart for a long time like we see when she tells snape that she always has to explain her behavior to her other friends. sure it could have been explored more what exactly did she fall in love with in james, but aside from that acting like she was some evil harlot is dumb because she is basically nobody.

james yeah was a pisshead bully, but he was also some old money kid so snobbery was maybe pretty much given, thinking about how the old families with wealth act in harry potter in general. again it could be explored more how he grew and changed.

honestly they never got time to mature and that's one of the weirdest things about this story, that you have all these old actual adult wizards and witches waxing poetics about what a great man james and great woman lily was when they never even grew up to be proper man or woman since they died at 21. wouldn't 100 year old wizards have met braver people during their lifetime, i don't know. though i guess them being so young and still brave enough to fight in a war is something you can respect, but james and lily etc being at least bit older at least would make more sense.

then it just comes to personal taste that i don't like too kiddy story type of writing where we have to spend time and make the readers learn when the characters are being naughty and readers are given some life lessons over how we should behave. it's fiction, we can have some assholes around without having disclaimers around every single time about it.

though james was called out, his friends were called out, it s in the narrative that his friends also were most likely very biased over their pal. it is there already. and it was basically snape's whole character to be the asshole guy who was on the good side after all, it was his job in the narrative basically so using that character arc too much with every other character would have taken away from him.

and since i started my own sperging here goes more: saying harry is somehow especially selfish is kinda dumb too because he literally gave his life to finish dumbledore's plans and get rid of voldemort. he didn't die in the end obviously, but still, he intended to. he was ready to die for the greater good, though this makes him heroic it is kinda dark too that he let the old bastard manipulate him to become a human sacrifice. but hey, it worked well in the end lol 10 points to dumbledore.

and i think since most of his shitty behavior happens in the fifth book, it's kinda understandable since he was busy ptsding over cedric's death. him being a bitch was kinda natural for that. after that he grew more chill honestly, though still was a kid.

>hermione (obviously. argues with ron about it because he's a retard who doesn't understand the issue at first)

>mcgonagall (jkr seems to love her so i'm sure she's a big terf)
>luna lovegood (not sure about her except i can see her unintentionally saying baity shit to tras)
>sirius (gay and grossed out at the thought of touching a vagina)

Agree. Ginny would totally be a terf too, but unlike the other two, she wouldn't try to reason with the woke crowd and would bully them. They wouldn't do it because of political reason, but Snape, Ron, Draco and James obviously would despise trannys and mock the shit out of them.

Did anyone else find it disturbing that Voldemort’s mom roofied his dad and the books didn’t make her seem like the bad guy?

No. 191280

No. 191283

I felt the same about how Merope has been portrayed. Her relationship with Tom Gaunt was written as sad and wrong, I interpreted Voldemort being the rape baby half the reason why he doesn't know love and is fucked in the head. Rowling being capable of writing nuanced shit made Dumbledore show sympathy about Merope's life full of abuse and loneliness.
What is weirder is Wesley's selling date rape drinks and the comedic plot with Ron drinking one. Kinda doesn't match, the other shoe never dropped with "hey that's fucked for good characters to facilitate date rape". Rowling must have been kinda aware of the implications since she made a scrote go through it and not a female character.

No. 191285

I remember it being stated in one books, that people born from love potions are incapable of feeling love themselves, meaning there are canonical love potion date rape cases in the wizarding world

No. 191296

Realistically magic and consent are an impossible combo, imperius and polyjuice alone would 1000% be used to rape and violate if they were real. I think it's fair enough that in a kids book she just avoided the subject entirely.

No. 191298

She kind of hasn't though, with Merope and Ron. What I meant is that Weasleys' really shouldn't be selling love potions in their store with magical tricks.
Weird fact: there's been a Winx Club comic about date rape under the guise of a love potion.

No. 191300

OT but the Winx Club comics were more mature and had better art than the tv show, kind of a shame they were overlooked.

No. 191305

i mean ron did end up almost dead because of it, even though it wasn't the love potion itself but the drink he got from slughorn

No. 191310

I think it's because Sirius and James are so similar to each other, they're both rebellious and extroverted so they come across more like brothers or partners in crime. On the other hand Remus is more shy and gentle, and I think that makes his relationship with Sirius more dynamic and interesting, because they have these two very different personalities.

No. 191311

now that i think about it, harry could probably had died if he had taken the love potion instead of ron. because it was harry who thought to use the bezoar while slughorn was too panicked, if it had been harry instead of ron who got sick ron wouldn't have known to use it most likely.

anyway, while it was shitty how ron's love potioning was handled, narratively speaking it was that what put him in a situation where he almost lost his life so love potions are connected with bad consequences narratively speaking. and his brothers also were responsible for it in a way since they sold the love potion. of course it could have been a happy coincidence and jkr didn't think much of it but like the scene going from "haha look he is love potioned" to "jesus he's fucking dying" feels like intentional "you thought this was funny, what? see what happens if you fuck around with this stuff" moment but i could be reading too much into it

honestly one of the biggest problems i have with love potion stuff is the "rape babies are unable to love" allegory because that is honestly rather shitty thing to do, like imagine people born from rape reading that stuff

No, there was a misunderstanding so it got reprinted and then later as more books came to be translated, the first book go reprinted again with the cover from Mary however she didn't get credited but the Icelandic designer did.

Have you missed that's how the love potions work, pretty much? Except they force infatuation rather than rape on the victim, which is an adequate way of talking about the problem in a book for young(ish) readers. Some children's media have Very Special Episodes on the topic. IDK how many, but the Winx comic is an example. The wiki sucks, so I need to go by the scanned comics one by one, but I can post the link to it if anyone cares.
And anyway, the later books were YA rather than children's books and tackled more serious issues (although in a way that wouldn't be inappropriate if a younger reader read them). It's very common in fiction to show real issues by representing them by magical/unrealistic plot devices (especially if it can soften the blow), and I honestly think it's one of those cases.
I'm curious. Would you also say that Riddle grooming Ginny like a predator on a chatroom is "not that deep", or do you agree with my assessment?

I'm actually not sure why James has a lot of fans but I guess most of them are James/Lily shippers (awful pairing) who got into it through fanfic and enjoy whatever personality he has in those fics. Do characters have to be likeable for people to be interested in them though? Sirius is a bully but I still like him because he's tragic (kek) and funny and I ship him and James together because he was obsessed with him. Also kek at James and Regulus being "attractive characters" but in a fandom where even Snape is seen as a hottie I guess anyone can be (except Wormtail but fuck him). I wish more people wrote Sirius and James as genuinely awful people because that's part of what makes it fun.

No. 192262

James/Lily fr is such an awful pairing. And I think the way that fics try to edit James's character to be palatable is actually counterproductive - you know those weirdo writers who try to reframe James's bullying as him being a well-intentioned ~gentleman~ who was only trying to fight bigotry and misogyny inside the walls of Hogwarts, lmao. James was literally an arrogant, trust-fund frat bro, it's cringe to pretend that he'd be concerned with modern notions of "allyship" or other bs

Honestly I like Sirius too and I'm way more willing to forgive him for being an occasional dick than I am with James. Sirius was an actual character we got to see interacting with the main cast and expressing his personality, whereas James was literally just a plot device to (1) give the protagonist a dead dad and (2) provide Snape's tragic backstory. James had next to no presence throughout the story and almost zero importance to the overarching plot, I just can't see why people find that interesting.

Looking back on the treatment of Lavender in the movies, I don’t think she deserved to end like that lol. Like not only did Rowling kill her, but she fell off a balcony and got mauled by the werewolf. What was even her crime, being cringe and way too much into Ron? He basically just used her to get off and make Hermione jealous and it was never shown that he regretted how he treated her.

No. 192290

I don't think it was exactly punishment, imo it was just a way to show how even the most random of people and people you'd never expect can be unfortunately killed in a brutal war. I mean there wasn't really a reason to kill off Lupin and Fred either, they just happened to be victims too (I am still soooo pissed that Lupin died, I will never forgive JRK for that lol)

I didn’t see that much of a diff in-between her movie self and book self. I honestly didn’t mind Lavender’s portrayal, it was a bit one-dimensional and unnuanced but it’s deemed to happen considering JKR biggest writing flaw imo is her lack of subtility. She falls in the early 2000’s “school stacy” girly-girl character trope, they usually exist to be a dumb bully to the NLOG girl (Hermione). She started this way in the books but turned into her own thing and ended up just becoming the stereotypical cringy girly teen who loves new-age shit like Divination, gossips, cackles loudly and is generally annoying but has a good heart. In the muggle world, Lavender would be a military spouse and an MLM woman kek

Pansy in the book is described as pug-faced, but that's only from the perspective of Hermione, a character who already dislikes her.

Also, couldn't it be considered a little 'problematique' that they cast a mixed race girl to play her in the later movies, because the white girl they originally got was too pretty?

Is this a new thing? I'm lucky and haven't ever read J/L fic because I don't read Remus/Sirius either but in a series authored by an unwoke witch James seems like one of the most unwoke characters of all. The best thing people can do with him is make him gay/bi and develop him from there like back in the days of livejournal when there were hundreds of Remus/Sirius/James threesome fics. Because we know so little about him and Regulus people can basically make them canon OCs. Also the way JKR made James and Lily basically perfect soulmates (but also making Lily perfect in general) was extremely weird. A lot of the stuff she wrote seems so corny.

yes unfortunately it's commonplace esp. in places like tiktok - people excuse James by saying things like "he wasn't a bully, he only went after Snape cuz Snape was a mean white supremacist nazi who deserved it!!!" A sizeable portion of the tumblr marauders fanbase also headcanons James Potter as being a brown-skinned South Asian guy, just to drill home the "progressive icon James" thing further. Like c'mon, the actual, canon James was a wealthy, straight English guy from the 70's, he definitely wouldn't have met 2022 standards of progressivism lol

>haven't ever read J/L fic because I don't read Remus/Sirius either

Oh, that probably explains it; literally the most popular Wolfstar fic on AO3 (All The Young Dudes) is a great example of how James woobifying gets amped up to 11 by fanfic writers. In ATYD, all of the students James bullies are portrayed as having been bigoted in some way so that readers will believe they ostensibly deserved it. Like the author unironically wrote Snape and all of the Slytherins to be homophobic/transphobic just to make them even less sympathetic than they already are (and ofc James is the perfect ally of BIPOC and trans rights in the story).

Somehow I doubt that the actual canon Snape, as horrible as he was, had any strong opinion on trans/gay ppl. Anyhow, most J/L and wolfstar fics written within the past ~3 years tend to follow along these lines where everything reads like it was written by terminally online preteens, it's vomit-inducing

This is so retarded I almost want to laugh. I remember hearing so much about that fic and from the fans I just knew it was absolute shit.

I cannot fucking STAND this headcanon (for Harry more than James). I just have zero attraction to Indian men so as soon as a fic describes Harry as one I get turned off by both him and the story, because it's such a fucking annoying SJW thing to do that I want to drop it immediately.

for those unaware these posts have less to do with James depiction in the series and are coming from the marauders fandom, the whole fandom is honestly fascinating cause in the books the marauders barely appear and more of a literary plot convenience more then anything, but still a fandom grew around them specifically cause we get so little information about them
They basically are a sub-fandom of HP, who have their own mostly established headcanons while also falling into archetypical tropes that are always gonna be popular

>Sirius- troubled aggressive bad boy who has family issues

I’ve seen some older tumblr posts about how HP has a lot of extremely classist themes. Some pointing to the Weasleys fitting the “happy but poor with a lot of children” trope. Some pointing out that it was selfish that Harry never helped his poor friend Ron financially when Harry himself has a huge amount of wealth and never cared about it. I also vaguely remember a lot of mention of how the wizarding world reflected a lot of class rhetoric in the UK but in a negative and unprogressive way. What do you guys make of this?

Didn't Harry always offer to help the Weasleys but they always rejected it when it couldn't be thought of as not really charity because they didn't want him to feel taken advantage of or take charity from a young kid.

No. 193457

It always seemed to me that Molly was always trying to demonstrate how a family treats each other, how caring for someone really works, in the hopes that 1) Harry would recognize what was happening with the dursleys wasn’t normal and that the fault was with them, not him 2) that caring about someone isn’t transactional and their value in your life isn’t linked to the money they make or money they give you 3) in order to set up his understanding of future relationships, that if someone appears in his life and gets close to him then suddenly starts asking for money that, that is not normal.

TBH i never really understood what Rowling intended with Snape's whole persona. There's this massive contrast between how his appearance and his dialogue are presented.

In every book, Snape is described as being physically hideous - he has crooked teeth, greasy hair, and a bony physique. The narration constantly reinforces how "ugly" he is! At the same time though, Rowling always describes his voice as being "silky", "smooth", "velvety"… which are usually ways people describe the voices of attractive male characters.

Like, do you think Rowling intended readers to find Snape attractive??? Does SHE find Snape attractive? Why'd she keep emphasizing how gross he looks if she gave him this whole romantic backstory and writes his dialogue in a vaguely seductive way?

I want to know what idiot started the SJW-headcanon that Harry (and subsequently James's side) is Indian. I don't really care about skintone, Harry's skin can be blue but I hate how those pandering fanfics authors are so smug with how much they shove it in their fics. "Ooooh, Harry's THICK, nothing-less-than-mahogany chicken-tikka-masala-scented skin glistened in the sun" FUCK OFF.

It's like they take ethnicities and put them on characters like socks because they think it'll make their basic-ass jeans and t-shirt combo quirky and special. I actually respect authors that give fewer physical descriptions of their characters because it's easier for a reader to immerse and imagine their own version. The hoops these people jump through to try to be the most 'progressive inclusive race godmother,' I s2G.

These hot takes on Harry bother me much more than stuff about Hermione per se because how is the Potter family supposed to be an ancient wizarding family if apparently they're pretty ethnically Indian? And have remained so over hundreds of years in lily-white British Isles? Bye.

i think the descriptions are so unflattering because they're filtered through harry's perspective.

we also have to remember that it's a children's book and in children's books evilness often equals ugliness. see umbridge's unflattering descriptions or Rita's man hands. of course other characters are ascribed with unflattering traits as well (hagrid isn't exactly the next bachelor, i think even Dumbledore's nose is described as uneven/broken, Ron is described as tall, skinny and with a long nose …) but these traits are balanced out by the actions of the characters. it's always like "Malfoy, who is ugly btw, kicked a puppy" vs "hagrid, who is MASSIVE, offered harry a cookie" vs "snape aka greasy mcbutterhairs made fun of the kicked puppy."

I actually think if people had any honesty they'd be celebrating the series for being really specifically anti-classist. The Weasleys aren't some jolly little poor but happy clan, their poverty weighs on them in really overt ways throughout the whole series. There's a moment that really stayed w/ me in particular, think it was in GoF, where Ron just suddenly explodes about how much he hates being poor and having hand-me-down crap and feeling embarrassed when he can't afford things his friends can. It was the most honest expression of that anger I'd ever encountered when I first read it as a kid, and it's STILL one of the most open portrayals of that I've ever seen in anything aimed at kids. Tbh I think the Weasleys are some of the only not-bullshitty poor characters in YA fiction, and you can absolutely tell it's b/c JKR has been poor. The constant grind of it is so present – like in OotP, when Ron dares to ask for a broom for getting prefect, and he hedges it with "but it doesn't have to be a really nice one!!!" and there's a description of Molly's face falling and then her hauling it back up…they love each other, and yeah, that means they can be happy, but the anxiety is always there.

There are a million other ways I think the series really specifically addresses class that, if JKR were fandom's darling, everyone would be celebrating as genuinely huge: The fact that Snape and Lily are so specifically from a shit industrial town and end up being two of the biggest heroes, the ways the Dursleys are portrayed as being awful through denigrating striking workers and people who don't drive the right cars and shit and being like "obviously James was a worthless unemployed drunk," etc. But above all, the entire goddamn series can be boiled down to "our hero has to defeat the bigot-y assholes who have lots and lots of money and power." Like she did not accidentally make the bad guys the upper class twits who have mansions, box seats with the minister, gobs of treasure, and a big fat hand in the way the wizarding world is run. The books could literally not be more clear that the Malfoys/Lestranges/etc's power is tied to their ideals and wealth and the centuries they've had all these ideals and wealth, and that it all basically allows them to run the government and press. It takes a huge, huge commitment to hating JKR to ignore this. It's not subtle.

No. 193728

fuck i remember that gof scene, i think it was because they got fools gold at the quidditch cup and Harry buys them those omnioculars which are very expensive and which ron pays him back for with the fools gold. he later learns that the gold disappears and gets mad because harry never said anything about the money being gone, to which harry replied that he just completely forgot about the money. which made ron even angrier because he, as a poor person, can't just "forget" about money. it's a really great scene and it really made me feel for ron.

No. 193737

It's not even subtle, the bad guys are rich aristocrats and assholes from very old and important families, and whether a character was rich or poor or mistreated while growing up is usually well-written, so the people saying that HP as a franchise is classist are stupid. It's like saying that since Sherlock Holmes stories are mostly about murder mysteries then that means Arthur Conan Doyle thinks murder is good and fun.

No. 193749

here's the thing though; faux-progressivism and tumblr brain rot have become so widespread that all of the messages about class inequality fly over people's heads. There are people who even insist that JKR wasn't progressive ENOUGH because she writes about poor people who also happened to be white.

>The fact that Snape and Lily are so specifically from a shit industrial town and end up being two of the biggest heroes

regarding this part - some parts of the fandom turned on Snape so fast that the tiktok fanbase doesn't even consider him to be a "hero" at all. Like "oh well he was a bigoted wizard Nahtzee so he deserved to be poor and shit!!!" And JKR specifically wanted to address things such as child neglect and abusive parents in his narrative, but of course idiotic tiktok fans will handwave those themes away by saying rubbish like "well, Harry was abused too and he didn't end up being a dick like Snape"

In other words, people just ignore how the books covered many progressive themes just because they applied to characters they didn't like. It's easier for them to pretend that JKR was an "incel sympathizer" or some shit rather than acknowledge how she explored social problems in her work

No. 193751

Yes, that was it! Ugh, it's a really good scene. I remember really loving that it doesn't have the kind of endpoint I'd come to expect – like, the gold doesn't come back, and Ron doesn't immediately learn a lesson about how he has love, which is What Really Matters. It's just shitty and uncomfortable, which is very real.

No. 193755

Yeah. What drives me nuts about the Snape discussion especially is like…..people are constantly criticizing JKR for stuff THEY brought into the conversation. She/the books never say that being poor cancels out the shitty things he does, or that the shitty things he does cancel out the heroism, or that he's Actually Hot or Actually Ugly or that what he did to Lily is justified or unjustified. Harry comes to feel he's a hero, but I've always felt that this is very much his character's choice. I just looked up an interview she had on the Today show years ago, and she's actually more forthright about it than I remembered: "Is he a hero? You see, I don't see him really as a hero. He's spiteful, he's a bully – all of these things are still true of Snape, even at the end of this book."

She literally just presents a very believable character arc that's pretty representative of what war and hardship does to some people. I absolutely buy that he'd latch onto the Death Eaters, and that the fact that this is understandable doesn't mean it's okay. And then I completely buy that he'd dedicate his life to undoing what he did, but that he'd still be petty and awful to a fucking kid. The truth is that she created a really complex character, and people can't deal with it, and also everyone always needs to assume female creators either unthinkingly stumble onto whatever successes they have, or their work MUST be dumber than people think it is. Even before the terf thing, this was always present in the fandom.

The way people are scraping to shit on the series for anything is ridiculous. What gets me especially is like….there are plenty of examples of ACTUAL children's literature that ACTUALLY, actively, promotes shitty stuff. Not like, "this book was written by a clearly left-wing white woman in the '90s" stuff, which is mostly just "eh, there could've been some more brown kids around." ACTIVELY BAD stuff. Roald Dahl literally verbatim declared himself an anti-semite and wrote an entire short story collection about rape by deception, and The Witches is about big-nosed foreigners with no homeland who eat blue-eyed children who also happen to be unmarried women who LIEEEEE to men with makeup and wigs. When shit is bad, it's not subtle. But my local independent bookstore is only considering adding "FYI THIS PERSON IS A BIGOT" shelf talkers to one of those authors' books, and it isn't Dahl. It's the woman who made one of her most prominent characters gay at a time when NO ONE was doing that.

i hate how people think that harry not offering his wealth to the weasleys at like 12 years old is a shitty character choice and indicative of rowling’s bad politics or whatever. no adult in their right mind would accept charity from a random kid and furthermore i don’t think any kid would have the idea to give their wealth to adults because kids don’t really understand money like that. it just wouldn’t have made sense for harry to do that and would have infringed upon the weasley’s pride if they did accept money from him.

personally i do think that harry having that massive inheritance from his parents wasn’t a good storytelling decision. i think rowling wanted harry to have his cinderella moment in the first book but didn’t fully think through how it would affect the rest of the narrative. it would have been much more interesting for example, if harry had the inheritance but due to some law he couldn’t access it until he was 18. then it would be like at the end of the war and the battle with voldemort he suddenly has access to his inheritance but it’s kind of bittersweet because of all he lost along the way. but these are just my thoughts

I love hp because of the nostalgic, magic, wholesome factor. And then there is a vocal part of the fandom who wants the opposite of that, they want to sexualize everything. It has always felt so wrong to me. Maybe we need a hp general and a hp shipping thread for those people to go nuts in.

Picrel is the passage I was thinking of. I remember GOF having quite of few of them, like with the students making out in the bushes during the Yule ball. I liked it (both book and movie), it’s a fun book on top of being the series’ pivotal point; Harry becomes a full-fledged teen, Voldemort comes back, Harry discovers mortality and grief.

you're completely correct. Cringey millennial women will often list "Hufflepuff" on their dating app profiles, sometimes accompanied by "fuck jkr"

These idiots are typically a bunch of brainless drones wo haven't read any books other than Harry Potter, so HP becomes their entire personality. However, because of JK's recent anti-trans tendencies, they also have to disavow her - the very creator of the series they can't move on from - since it's the trendy woke thing to do.

also anecdotal but it's common for mentally ill tumblrcels to claim Hufflepuff as well since it's the "uwu WHOLESOME" house which fits their "smol bean" aesthetic or whatever. Like Gryffindor/Slytherin are too aggressive for these weirdos who are desperate to project an image of cuteness and innocence

Yeah but I'd argue that's considered a plus for them - the fujos and fanfiction writers get a blank slate to project all of their desires onto.

The Regulus love is also ironic since the Marauders fandom is one of the worst places for purity culture and cringe social policing. People constantly hate on Snape because "uhm, he voluntarily hung around Magic Nazis at school" but suddenly they love Regulus? Who actually JOINED the Death Eaters during his school years? Sure, he worked against Voldemort in the end, but there's no proof that he actually stopped believing in pure blood supremacy or any of that stuff. Sorry but I just love the idea of picrew avatar enbies and tumblr troids thirstposting over someone they'd ordinarily consider a racist lmao

No. 195096

Dramione is wildly popular but at the same time it's also very controversial within the fandom. It's popular with millennial women and there are fanfics (e.g. Manacled) which have over 2 million hits, making them some of the most viewed fanfics of all time on AO3.

However, Dramione also receives a lot of backlash from zoomers and the tiktok fanbase, usually for reasons related to modern politics. A lot of the hate for it is based on reasoning like "omg how can you ship an oppressed person with their oppressor" and people project modern day racial politics onto the ship. So anti-Dramione ppl view it as a "toxic" relationship involving what basically amounts to a white supremacist kkk member dating a black woman (lmao).

I personally find Dramione a little bit cringey because it leans so hard into wish fulfillment tropes - like a plain, nerdy good girl dating a suave, tortured bad boy? An ordinary heroine who ends up with a billionaire heir from a prestigious family? It kind of evokes rubbish like 50 shades of gray, et cetera. At the same time though, I find the people who are vehemently against the ship even worse since it's annoying when people scream and whine about FICTIONAL things that are "bigoted" and "problematic"

No. 195103

lol she definitely isn't black, but people project racial politics onto the blood-purity politics of harry potter.

so Draco Malfoy (a Death Eater, which people view as the in-universe metaphor for racist Nazis) showing romantic/sexual interest in Hermione (oppressed muggle-born) is viewed as a problematic, fetishizing, and racist ship by TikTok zoomers. Because Draco and the DE's are perceived as the oppressors of muggleborns like Hermione, its weird

>what's everyones fav HP game
The first two games for the PS1. Those were some of the first games I ever got and I still replay them sometimes. Even though movie games often suck and are just bad commercials for whatever they're advertising these two still have a special place in my heart. It feels like there's a decent amount of side content, so many hidden rooms to explore, the music is great and these knights genuinely spooked me out for life like in pic related kek. I remember having my mom help me during those sneaking missions, especially sneaking away from the trolls, and the creepy sound effects that would activate at certain areas like that raven around some spooky tree were just such a nice touch.

I never got the whole "Hermione is oppressed" thing though, she's muggle born, yes, but muggles are the majority in the world and she comes from an affluent family, she can always choose to just be a regular woman after Hogwarts. The mudblood scene in the movie was extremely retarded, she got all depressed for a slur (that doesn't even sound like a slur tbh) that she shouldn't care about since she's been in the wizarding world for only a year, it's like being insulted by some locals during a holiday trip. It was better in the book, where Ron gets offended on her behalf while she's like "I don't know what that means, that probably wasn't very nice but whatever".

I wanna believe someone was insane enough to organically produce it, but most likely not.

No. 195832

hey guys so i made the original post about seeing the secrets of dumbledore and here are my thoughts (i haven’t seen the previous two movies)
- production value, sets, costumes, hair and make up were impeccable. very aesthetically pleasing and consistent
- i really liked mads as grindewald but i love him so i’m biased
- the story and overall acting was a solid 3.75/5. not a complete waste of time but i didn’t find the chemistry compelling between some of the actors and there were scenes where it felt like the actors were reading from a script with pauses between lines, instead of them having good and believable relationships and interactions with each other

and most importantly
dumbledore says he fell in love with grindewald in the first 5 minutes of the movie. no dancing around the topic. and it was brought up at other points throughout the movie. my friend and i gasped because we were not expecting it to be so unsubtle. now i hope people accusing jk rowling of queer baiting can shut up. also i genuinely felt kind of bad for dumbledore at the end of the movie because the last scene is of him seeing the other characters reunite with family and friends, get married or meet up again with lovers and he just watches on with a kind of resignation and sadness and walks away on his own. genuinely i found that touching and i feel like there’s a lot do with dumbledore and grindewald that could have been explored in a better story not made for a blockbuster franchise but what was included was done well i believe
- generally a pretty underwhelming plot but something that’s fun to watch but not something to rewatch
- ezra miller was in it a little bit but i could not stop thinking of him rampaging through the streets of hawaii kek. definitely made the movie more entertaining to think of that
- at the end of the film when jk rowling’s name appeared on screen in the credits in my theatre people started clapping at that moment. maybe it was just a coincidence but it shows to me that normies do not care that she’s supposedly “transphobic”

anyway those are my thoughts. hopefully they are helpful

No. 195840

They're pretty important, as the plot directly continues from those movies. Frankly I was never a big fan of them because they're so.. Hollywoodish and I hate how all the wizards are wearing fancy suits in the 1920s.

People accusing her of queerbaiting didn't pay attention to the last HP book, I thought it was obvious subtext that Dumbledore didn't just have a platonic relationship with hil back then and that was before that interview where JKR confirms he's gay. If a girl in middle school with memory loss issues due to some physical health issues like I was back then can notice this there's no excuse for others.

IDK if you are reading some ill will into my words, I'm celebrating the brave choice (seen the movie and loved it even more) while being curious of the bullshit censorship will pull (or maybe it will not?) just because it's such a big thing for the plot, not some gay couple kissing in the split frame. Though I guess since it's all in the words, a creative translation can be applied.

No. 195989

honestly i was wondering the same thing about how it could be censored. even if they change the lines about falling in love with each other - major spoilers ahead one of the major parts of the movie is that there’s this magical bond necklace they made when they first fell in love that won’t let them move against each other and when they destroy it grindewald tells dumbledore “who will love you know?”. also the very climax of the movie involves them dueling and ending up with their hands on each other’s chests feeling each other’s heart beats. also mads has a few moments where he kind of cradles other men’s heads in his hands kek. not sure if this is something grindewald does or if it’s supposed to be intimidating?? all i’m saying is it’s going to be difficult to completely censor the gay elements since the subtext will always be there in the character’s actions

No. 196022

I remember a lot of Sirius/Remus shippers accusing JKR of queerbaiting because she made Dumbledore gay instead of their ship

No. 196031

A similar controversy erupted when Cursed Child was released, people accused the writers of queerbaiting with the friendship between Albus Severus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy. They really latched onto the way that Albus and Scorpius had a really long hug at the end of the play or something, and accused the writers of queerbaiting and "fakeouts" instead of being "courageous" enough to show a kiss or something more explicit (even though they were just FRIENDS)

The sheer damage and autism Wolfstar shippers have wreaked onto this fandom is incredible. They constantly shit on Tonks, write furry (dog x wolf) smut, and - worst of all - became the basis of the modern-day Marauder stan base which consequently led to brainrot like South Asian James, Black Dorcas Meadowes, Snape incel discourse, and All the Young Dudes

No. 196036

Thank you for reminding me how gay this movie is. I know that I sound like a twitterfag retard, but I mean it. As the Secrets of the Dumbledore should be, as they deal with 3 characters with homosexual entanglements. Beyond the obvious pair, there is also Credence whose relationship with Grindelwald in the first movie had been framed like a teenager groomed by a degenerate pedophile which really makes me think of Credence as a bootleg Kylo Ren, even though that part of his story hasnt been properly explored in the trilogy. There is a lot of hurt feelings and tension between them, and Credence is one of the characters possessively touched by Grindelwald. I was sure that Queenie meant that she hasn't been telling Grindelwald that Credence both loves and hates him or something like that, but it may have been about the Dumbledores too
There is A LOT of Ezra Miller in that movie, looking unkempt due to his characters' illness which I would buy had Ezra wasn't looking like that IRL too. Try not to think about Rwanda when you see his face or you will make it hard for yourself to feel bad for Credence (and I like his character a lot, too bad that Ezra is an ass). When there was the fight scene with Albus, my first thought was "wow, imagine how much he would terrorise Hawaii if he had those powers irl' kek

TBH I never found the Goldstein sisters working as characters. Queenie should have either been less of a Marilyn Monroe skinwalker or not a miscast.

Honestly I want her to write a series about the marauders, their school lives and the first war could be fleshed out into a great story. If they're bullies or whatever that just makes for more (potentially) complex characters ala Snape. But obviously it would only be worthwhile if JKR got passionate about writing it, it doesn't seem like she wants to and half assing it would be worse than nothing at all.

Other than that my great HP desires have always been a tv series of HBO quality, an anime, and an MMO. I'm very happy about the latter being reality but I still think more could be done with the franchise.

ppl on twitter lack basic media literacy. the film is going to be gay regardless of those lines being removed but it speaks volumes that they think jkr and this film is problematic for not being extremely explicitly gay. like did they want them to make out on screen? china would have wanted that edited out too

No. 197231

Based on the discourse about Yuri on Ice when it was airing, if two male characters are very heavilt implied to be in love with each others and it's confirmed in later episodes or movies, it doesn't count as long as they're not french kissing on screen with their tongues visibly touching for at least one minute. Dumbledore and Grindewald were very obviously implied to have a deep, non-platonic relationship in the last volume of HP because of people talking about them and their personal lives at the beginning and the end of the novel? Doesn't count because they're dead by then and thus can't make out in front of Harry. JKR confirms that Dumbledore is gay soon after the novel is released? Doesn't count, it's too random and not in the actual book and she's a retarded SJW !!1! A prequel movie later confirms everything, yet again? Doesn't count, the characters look handsome subjective and explicitely say they were dating BUT China censored it so it might as well not be true!

Because it's trendy news. Shitting on JKR or HP is trendy online (and only online), shitting on Hollywood is trendy, shitting on the movie indistry's attempts at creating the first LGBTQ rep is trendy. So it generates clicks and ad revenus. That's it. And honestly as a European who likes Japanese video games these normies have no idea how far companies will go to "censor" and "localize" content if they think it's not family friendly enough for another market, I'm talking about rewriting half of a script and making all the characters ooc while pretending that Japan, religion and death don't exist (thinking about 90s games). So I'm sure that new movie wasn't as butchered in China as these cases.

it just frustrates me because those disney movies with a 3 second gay kiss are done that way because it can be edited out and won’t affect the storyline at all. with the secrets of dumbledore the more explicit references to them being in love can be changed but it doesn’t change the fact that the very storyline itself hinges on dumbledore and grindelwald’s history. it basically sounds like the chinese audience is going to get a danmei version of the movie where they’re ex sworn brothers or whatever kek

Saw this in the previous MTF thread and had to repost as I don't want to argue there…
I'm the most casual HP fan and yet, I remember from the books that Harry definitely didn't want to own Kreacher, who was mindfucked enough to obsess over the nazi wizard family that owned him. Harry couldn't free him because he would blab everything to the Lestranges and Malfoys, which is what happened anyway.
>Sirius told him to get out of the kitchen. Kreacher took this to mean that he was allowed to leave the house and went to the Malfoy family, who were close relatives of the Blacks, and told Narcissa Malfoy and Bellatrix Lestrange about Harry and Sirius' close relationship.
>Later, when Harry Potter used the Floo Network to ask if Sirius was there, Kreacher lied. This convinced Harry that his vision of Sirius being tortured in the Department of Mysteries was real, and led him and his friends to attempt to rescue him. This resulted in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries in which Sirius was murdered by Bellatrix.
Sirius Black was the cunt who was purposefully an ass to the deranged humanoid that was his slave. Fittingly, this is a quote used on his wiki page:
>Kreacher is what he has been made by wizards, Harry. Yes, he is to be pitied. His existence has been as miserable as your friend Dobby's. He was forced to do Sirius's bidding, because Sirius was the last of the family to which he was enslaved, but he felt no true loyalty to him. And whatever Kreacher's faults, it must be admitted that Sirius did nothing to make Kreacher's lot easier.
Based Hermione:
>Harry, Kreacher doesn't think like that. He's a slave; house-elves are used to bad, even brutal treatment; what Voldemort did to Kreacher wasn't that far out of the common way. What do wizard wars mean to an elf like Kreacher? He's loyal to people who are kind to him… I've said all along that wizards would pay for how they treat house-elves. Well, Voldemort did… and so did Sirius.
Sorry to spam with quotes, but my memory isn't so good. I KNEW that the tranny is warping the narrative to make Jo look bad. It's true that Harry could have freed Kreacher after the Battle of Hogwarts, but to be honest we don't know if he did or did not as it wasn't important to the plot at the point. I suspect Kreacher was one of those elves that would be offended at the mere thought of being free (like Winky).

There is nothing tacked on about the gay relationship either, it makes perfect sense.

right, like holy shit wolfstar shippers are mentally ill. a lot of them have a throbbing hateboner for the Remus/Tonks pairing because it's "gay erasure" but ALSO because they believe that Tonks was supposed to be "nonbinary", so shoving her into a straight M/F relationship was erasing her queer identity.

It's so dumb but the Tonks nonbinary headcanon came from the fact that she's a Metamorphmagus, so some lgbt readers interpreted that to mean "oh, so she can change her appearance, her sex, her gender presentation at will! uwu". These idiots were then double mad at how Tonks became a wife and went through a pregnancy arc in book 7, crying abt how JKR supposedly forced femininity onto their NB icon

I've already said this but I also noticed the subtext long before the interview where JKR confirms that Dumbledore is gay and that's despite me having memory issues due to some medical issues at the time I'm doing way better now but that's another topic and while I wasn't a turbo retard let's just say I wasn't even able to remember and recognize my teachers and classmates' faces and voices for years despite me seeing them everyday and it ruined my grades at some point so if I could notice the very obvious subtext, other people have no excuse. But it's been so long and I read the last book in two days only as soon as it got released so I wouldn't be able to give you concrete examples or quotes. I do remember some characters shit talking him during the wedding at the beginning of the book and trying to explain he was very, veryyyy close to Grindelwald despite Grindelwald being a psycho, to the point where he wasn't making rational decisions anymore, before fighting him. I can't imagine something like that with a deep friendship. Maybe with family members or lovers but not "mere" best friends. And then there's his brother/the bartender explaining some family drama right before the Hogwart battle. I think to new movie is all about that, right? I have a feeling that reading manga by CLAMP all my childhood and teenage years helped me spot subtext easily kek I really want to watch the new movie but I haven't see the first two Fantastic Beasts movies and can't find it online, in my country it seems it's only on Amazon Prime and then after getting the subscription I'll have to pay both movies. No fucking way, fuck Amazon.

No. 197982

It's not homophobic but it doesn't really make sense to pair Sirius with a woman because he doesn't really have any meaningful interactions with women in the books unless you count Bellatrix I suppose. Remus/Sirius is okay, the fans are shitty but the pairing itself is a bit lame considering we know from the books Sirius and James we closest in the group.

Also this next bit might veer into schizoposting but I always suspected that people are more heavily inclined to ship Sirius/Remus because they both transform into canine creatures of some sort, and they subconsciously want to read about them having Dog x Wolf furry sex or some shit.

Your perception of slash shipping as solely fetishistic is very scrote-y, anon. If it was just about sex, absurdly long "slow burn" fics wouldn't be as popular and common as they are.

Slash shipping is partially the product of media in patriarchal cultures often failing to sufficiently flesh out female characters. Why ship your favorite character with a blandly written one when his male best friend is more fully realized? There's also the simple fact that some shippers just find both characters hot/cute and like them together for that reason.

It's honestly sad that you consider heterosexual women looking at cute guys kissing to be on par with scrotes who have foot fetishes. Like one is just people being attracted to the opposite sex, and the other is getting boners over toes because your brain is broken.

I'm not even a fujo, I give zero fuck about shipping, I just think that of all the possibilities canon het shipping is boring as fuck, I totally see why fans want to explore other possibilities. Most fujos don't yell homophobia at authors who don't make the gay pairings canon, calm down.

Your post is so simultaneously condescending and retarded that I'm convinced you must be a scrote.

I don't watch porn, and I usually only read sfw fanfic. I understand that as a male you can't comprehend the idea that women aren't a hivemind, but each of us have different reasons for shipping what we ship. Sure, some people are TIF coomers, but others of us just like the damn characters together.

Maybe instead of assuming we're the problem, you should look into why you have such a visceral, angry response to seeing same-sex couples and/or unchaste women. Seems like you have some issues of your own.

I read all the books but didn't watch all the movies because of how the 4th movie left off a bunch of shit from the book. Now I kind of want to binge watch all the movies for my own entertainment and also to see what movie only fake fans know and misunderstand about the story and JKR.

Ok so now that I've seen the first two Fantastic Beasts movies: the first one is fun but I watched it with horrible quality and while doing housework so I'll definitely rewatch it later. The second one is weird, not bad but it feels incomplete, there's so much going on at the same time it feels like it should have been longer for everything to seem more coherent. I also have no idea if I was supposed to give a fuck about Leta and Yusuf or not, it feels like their backstories would have made more sense if this were a TV show and they had their own dedicated episodes, no idea if I'm making sense here. I didn't know Ezra Miller before that, so everytime he was on screen with his ugly haircuts I couldn't help but picture him assaulting Hawaiians in bars and yelling about Rwanda. I'm planning on watching the next one with friends. No idea if that's spoilers but why am I seeing several big twitter accounts saying that there's a cut scene where Mads kisses Jude on the neck?

No. 198361

The thing is that most people calling themselves Harry Potter fans are way more familiar with the movies than with the books and don't know shit about additional info from outside of the height movies. And that's including the person who made that tumblr post. Maybe at best they read the books long ago and don't remember all the details because they didn't reread them later, which is normal, but in that case you can't just say that something happens in the story when that's a lie not a huge exaggeration. It's the same thing as when people treat Ron like a turbo retard and say that without Hermione everyone would have died in the first volume when it only applied to the movies.

Speaking of fans who only watched some of the movies long ago and don't know much besides that, I just started seeing tweets about how shocked some people are that Dumbledore was made gay in the latest movie and how it's ruined their childhood, as if it weren't revealed like over a decade ago and as if it weren't obvious enough in the last novel kek. I've also seen zoomers still shitting in their diapers in the mid-2000s saying that Dumbledore was revealed to be gay by JKR at a poor attempts to appeal to SJWs very soon after she said people could headcanon Hermione as black if they wanted, I have no idea how these are so bad at math and try to talk about things they never witnessed themselves and don't understand but ok.

Yeah I have 2 versions of it, one in english and one in portuguese. I loved it, reread many times as a kid.
I don't remember the name of the creatures but I was especially scared of the mat thingy that eats people in their sleep or something like that and the I think three (or maybe five?) legged creatures that were actually witches that got some type of curse but they killed the witches that do that to them so there was no one alive to undo the spell.

I wish there was more stuff on magical creatures or weird witch stories.

No. 198450

Credence is such a sad character though, it's even hard for me to see him as an villain. He was an abused orphan pedo groomed into Grindelwald's cause. No wonder he got a redemption arc. I enjoy Ezra's portrayal of him (and I think he looked good in SoD, though nowhere his prime) - I wish the actor wasn't a giant psycho douche irl since I had to ignore the Rwanda monologue playing in my head every time I saw him.
I've liked Credence since the first movie premiered, Miller's irl business will not take that away from me.

Look up what a qilin is, it's exactly how that works in Chinese myths. Read or watch the 12 kingdoms to see how that works in more details, it's not a creature invented by JKR and she pictured it accurately. At least Dumbledore didn't get fucking kidnapped by a qilin disguised as a sexy blond man at the end of the movie like Yoko is at the beginning of the 12 kingdoms. Grindelwald is a retarded liar who just hates muggles because he sees them aw inferior but that's the whole point of his character. Ezra has daddy issues and communicates with his bio dad with a magic mirror somehow supposedly there's a cut scene in the castle when he talks to Dumbledore so maybe that's what would have explained how he can do this. Hogwarts is so fucked up that a muggle terrorist is the least of their issues kek, the whole school is some demonic place where you can die just from taking the wrong stairs.

Anons, do you think JKR thinks the marauders (mainly James and Sirius) were good people? She seems to like James/Lily as a pairing despite his bullying.

No. 210917

It's been years since I read the books but I'm pretty sure that Harry was shocked and disgusted once he learned about his dad being a shithead bully. Seems like JK wanted to write them as flawed shithead teens who grew into mostly good adults. Although it's possible that they were based on bullies she had as a kid and that's why they all get killed keke

No. 210940

Sirius was ok imo, you could blame his questionable teenage behaviour on his shit family life.
James is insufferable, I remember him being so cocky in this scene, constantly ruffling his hair to look like he just rode a broom and playing with a golden snitch that he stole. I know that JKR probably was trying to showcase how no one is truly good/evil through his character but it just fell flat

No. 210975

does it really matter what she thinks about the marauders? i think it's very clear that they're a good example for how group mentality and being very young can lead you to do bad stuff, but you can still redeem yourself. not saying that we really see how james became a better person, but sirius ended up in prison for years, and remus basically lost his entire support system and had to deal with the hatred against werewolves all by himself, without the support of his friends. still, they did their best to fight back against voldemort and to do the right thing by supporting harry, joining the order, etc.

but i also feel that snape is a good example for how bullying can affect someone for the rest of your life and just because you're an adult you can still harbor grudges and feel the pain of being tormented as a kid.

not saying that james/lily is such a perfect couple or that snape's crush on lily is sooo cute and admirable. but i like how jkr hardly ever writes perfectly morally good or bad characters, except for voldemort maybe.

I waited until just now to attempt to watch the Fantastic Beasts movies and just finished the second one. Got to say I should've trusted my instincts, they suck and blow very hard. I am really let down. I can't believe they let something so messy be associated with Harry Potter

No. 211269

What did you dislike? I waited as well until the third movie got released because I had no clue JKR wrote the scripts so I thought they were just there for the money, and Johnny Depp as Grindelwald seemes very OOC compared to what we knew from the books so I only disliked the second movie.

No. 212282


Nta but the pacing was so fucking slow and overall I found the first film boring. I got an hour in and nothing had fucking happened so I stopped watching. Plus none of the acting was charismatic enough to keep me interested… Boring character portrayal I think. Not written to be engaging.

Plus the franchising of Harry potter leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Fucking capitalism

And I knew the dumble/grindle would be 99% queerbaiting and not given the attention it deserves. I mean, an exciting new attachment turned toxic power imbalance?! With sibling death trauma and irreparable betrayal? Fascinating!

But as far as I know, it's barely touched upon except for a wink nudge to book readers

No. 212293

It's not queerbaiting it's explicit enough to be impossible to fully censor. As for Dumbass and Grindrwald's past, it's in the books, though it's not in the form of flashbacks. JKR probably didn't want the last movie to be too repetitive compared to the 6th and 7th books

I also didn't enjoy the first movie, I found it really boring and useless. It didn't feel like it takes place in the wizarding world, it was like an HP inspired separate universe to me. Second movie was odd and the main plot twist made me laugh out loud, but I think I'm one of the rare person who prefered it over the first one.
Third one is my fav (still mediocre) but it felt so long and dragging, the constant lore inconsistencies/revision that were already present in the first two movies are next level in this one. However, you can tell it would have actually been good as a book, which frustrates me even more. JKR should have wrote FBs books and then let someone adapt them as movies

No. 212461

>james became a better person
JKR wrote snippets about him post marrying Lily and he stills acts like an insufferable manchild. He does shit like pranking muggles with magic with Sirius and ruins the last dinner Lily had with her sister and her husband by acting like a complete retard. Remus even admits he still acted like a retard behind Lily's back, jinxing and pranking people after their relationship started. The "he grew up" is a preteen fanfic POC james meme, anon.

I don't know why JKR made it so hard to like them honestly when it does seems she really wants you to like them. She also maybe accidentally, maybe not, wrote Lily to be a shuwu tier pickme, she doesn't seem to have female friends (or any friends of her own, at all), her sister who is her only family hates her, and she seems to put up with her boyfriend's cringy bros bullshit to be the cool girl.

No. 212464

"gay sexual harassment" filename my sides anon

Objectively they are shit, the marauders+Lily seemed the kind of people who are self righteous and hypocrite about their beliefs and who think not being a literal nazi automatically makes them good people and justifies whatever nasty shit they do, kinda like wokies and leftiecows behave nowadays ironically kek. (watching Sirius and Remus try to justify the shitty things they did to Snape to Harry in OotP makes my skin crawl, they are adults in there and won't just admit they fucked up many years ago in front of the 15 year old, why do people even like them? I remember reading OotP as a kid and finding really hard to like Sirius in particular, he was a toxic asshole. Didn't he also beat his elf up while preaching that only cowards abuse those under them? lmao).

But from the quotes from JK i've read talking about them, she does seem to think they were good people and that you are supposed to like them?? Personally I think that she has a bad case of cognitive dissonance going on, she probably is big into bad boys like someone pointed out earlier in the thread and tbh? Despite her terfy views she oozes a bit of pickme energy tbh, it was way worse back when she wrote the books (her female characters are mostly written like shit). She seems the kind of girl who finds shitty behavior from "her" boys cute and quirky while condemns it when it comes from strangers. Idk Jily is a redflag shitfest only naïve teen girls seem to be into and JK seemed to think they are super cute and uwu together, with stellar quotes on places the wiki like "they are true love and meant for each other". I truly don't get it, it may be just because they are the protag's parents and she is not allowed to talk shit about them for marketing reasons or something.

No. 212478

It took me until 20 years later to start wearing dresses again because they'd also tried to remove your underwear instead of your trousers if you were wearing skirts or dresses. Teachers thought it was funny and cute kids playing together. Don't get me started on middle school where boys would often try to grope the girls' butts and breasts so often the dean had to make an announcement in each class against that kind of behavior to make sure these guys knew groping and undressing people without their consent to humiliate them is illegal.

I'm talking about tens of thousands of people queuing up for midnight releases outside bookstores, millions of copies sold in 24 hours, a massive worldwide phenomena?

>Imagine people queuing up for days in front of libraries to buy your new book
It was insane. I don't think it will ever happen again, especially on that scale. The way we consume has changed so much since the early-mid 2000s, everything is now quick consumption; really passionate obsession that doesn't last very long (like with Squid Game). The YA book market has become so saturated since HP, to the point there's nothing unique about it anymore. This applies to fantasy in general tbh. Twilight was the closest thing to HP craze and even it wasn't nearly as big. I thought the Grisha Trilogy would have a similar worldwide craze but it didn't happen, it seems like fantasy bildungsromans have been milked way too much these the past decades

No. 214134

The way you describe it reminds me of why basic shonen manga and anime are so popular nowadays (although some of them do have fanservice but normies don't like it, even straight guys). I think a urban fantasy with teenage protagonists would be treated as some kind of Harry Potter plagiarism by many people who don't read a lot, the same way high fantasy stories are sometimes treated as LotR's bad copies, and I'm not sure zoomers read as much as previous generations because of easy access to the internet, so I can only see that sort of things happening in like a decade at the earliest. When was the last time a YA book had very successful movie adptations? I remember Hunger Games being very popular at the time with the same audience.

No. 214184

I actually think that the Hunger Games and maybe the Percy Jackon/Heroes of Olympus series were probably the last big craze, everything else comes and goes really quickly that a long standing community just won't happen. There's something different about fandoms today compared to fandoms from the 2000-2010s and that's probably due to the platforms we have nowadays.
>I think a urban fantasy with teenage protagonists would be treated as some kind of Harry Potter plagiarism
I think a story has to do a bit more in order ot get slapped with the HP ripoff label, the story has to take place in a boarding magic/wizard/witch school eg: Little Witch Academia. Other stories did urban fantasy before HP.
Does a YA need a movie adaptation in order to have the same influence HP had? I remember a lot of people would actually read the books (or at least the first 2) and took pride in doing so. The movies were a cherry on top for the most part.

No. 214195

Most popular books get adaptations, or at least studios buy the rights to make tv or movie adaptations. But you're right, I remember being one of these book readers who hated when people called themselves HP fans if they only watched the inaccurate movies. I didn't even watch the 5th, the 6th and the 7th movies because of how much they butchered Goblet of Fire. But it's also true that a lot of dedicated fans will read the original materials if they discover and love a popular adaptation so who knows.

No. 214196

It's like but like other anons said, this kind of thing might not happen again because of how social media works. I remember when the 7th movie (part 1) of Deathly hallows came out, everyone dressed up. I was in NYC at the time and my gf and I dressed up and every 3rd person on the train was wearing a robe and tie of their house of choice. It was honestly really cool. It was ageless and people really had fun at the final movie. I honestly cant think of anything that came close to HP in that regard. Even Hunger games wasnt as big.

I hate how well groomed Sirius is in the movies, even when he's supposed to be just out of Azkaban. They try to rough up Gary Oldman a little, but in the books he's emaciated, with elbow length matted hair and yellow teeth. Harry literally thinks he looks like a corpse - the movie version is just so bland in comparison. I would have loved to see him introduced at his lowest point and slowly improve his grooming habits the closer he gets to Harry, and then we see him neglecting himself again when he's depressed & stuck in Grimmauld Place. My headcanon Sirius resembles Blanche Monnier more than he does Gary Oldman.

You're right nonnie, it's not just because you were young. I replayed both the first and second game for the ps1 recently and they both excel in that mysterious/slightly spooky vibe. The wistful music, the secret areas, good sound design in general. Those games had a great vibe to them.

Ravenclaw & my 'official' patronus is a hippogriff but more realistically I think it would be like… a star nosed mole or something. I doubt a star nosed mole would make a particularly aggressive charge at a dementor tho so maybe I should stick to hippogriff kek

I thought I was hufflepuff for the longest time but got sorted into slytherin and my patronus is a west highland terrier kek
I kinda like it but wish it was something bigger, no idea what it has to do with my personality though

Where can I find out my patronus? Is Pottermore the only way? I haven't had an account since 2012
