Who is Daphne Greengrass and why I keep seeing her everywhere? I thought she was an actual minor character but her name only appears once in the whole hp series, so how this character got in so many fics as a proper character? She is even shipped with Harry sometimes, which is so weird to me, with so many girls Harry could be with he gets shipped with a character that exists in name only. What gives?

Hogwarts Legacy; Divination class
Post your predictions for the upcoming game regarding the game it self, audience or others

>An attempt of boycotting the game will arise. However, it will be disregarded by the masses in favour of entertainment and nostalgia.

>Boycotters of said game, will turn their noses up at the patrons who have it while waiting to buy the game second-hand or get it through piracy as not to support tyrannical author that did them wrong

No. 262660

i honestly believe the game is gonna be a buggy mess, with a bigger audience of gamers than fans of the series, and it will flop when people realise its no good. maybe im just biased bc from what i saw in the trailers it really looks like a soulless big budget game which is trying to shoehorn in as many features as its able to

No. 262701

Every normie my age and older still enjoys Harry Potter and got all their kids into it. They don't care about any drama over JK Rowling and probably never even heard about it. There will be a boycott from terminally online retards but it can't defeat the unyielding admiration normies still have for HP. Hell, I haven't been into HP in years and I'm 100% playing this game. I do agree with the other anon there will be plenty of day 1 bugs like any other AAA game and people might use that against it to say it's bad kek

No. 262710

Like other anons have said, most normies dont give a shit about trannies. There will only be backlash from twt or tiktok, but no one gives a shit. I'm definitely getting this game day 1. It might have bugs, but I'm just so excited to be a witch.

No. 262999

Here are my predictions:
Maybe I'm biased because I follow a bunch of woke game journalists, but I think initially there is going to be some boycotting by journalists. They're going to write "why we're not playing/covering hogwarts legacy" and then when they realize the traction it gets they'll switch to "we played it so you don't have to, JKR is a terf so this game is bad" articles. The lesser woke ones will pander by making proper game articles but still include a little "JKR is terf" section so wokies won't call them out (they will anyway).
I think it will do nothing but backfire on them and make more people get curious and interested in this "dark, edgy, forbidden game" kek Hopefully a few people will look up what JKR actually said and realize she has been very reasonable all along.

I also think some streamers will be scared of streaming it and ones that do will get called out for promoting transphobia since terminally online gamer autists are a large part of the trans community.

But still, the overwhelming majority of people will love and hype up the game and places like twitter and reddit will have an outcry of sad troons who are crying over their friends being terfs for playing the game, and how seeing the game triggers their dysphoria.

No. 263000

>They don't care about any drama over JK Rowling and probably never even heard about it.
For anyone who has friends like this, tell them about it. Otherwise they'll eventually just get the propaganda version from a troon. Tell them the truth of how all she said was "we still need to recognize that women and girls face sex based oppression while we can still support trans people" and that was it. That has made trans people hate her more than they hate hitler, and they send her death and rape threats on the daily. For standing up for women. It's a literal witch hunt.

No. 263126

Totally agree with all of this.
There is no way this boycotting will be successful, talking about it won't do them any good but give the game free advertisement, and most of it will be pretty much preaching to the coir; and not talking will have no effect either as hp is still very popular despite what the TRAs like to claim. No winning here, I guess they really shoot themselves in the foot when they made an enemy of jkr.

No. 263201

I think a lot of casual supporters of the trans ideology who parrot all the virtue signalling like "JKR is a terf" will eventually succumb and buy the game by justifying it with "well JKR wasn't actually involved with the game…"

I have a lot of TRA mutuals on my fandom/art accounts but I follow enough people on social media that so far I've been able to pretend not to see those posts by them without a problem. I plan to make some innocent HP related posts when the game comes out and to play dumb if anyone tries to call me out. I plan to use the same "JKR wasn't even involved" excuse and if they push it they will have to present me with evidence, which I know doesn't exist so good luck kek

nonnies, can you recommend any good, long gen fics? i'm specifically NOT looking for "all the marauders and snape are gay" fics, and more like "what if" scenarios that someone took the time to explore. like "what if harry had grown up among wizards" or stuff like that. i remember back when i was a teenager people actually took years to rewrite the entire series to show how harry being a girl would change the entire story, or something like that.

basically fics that aren't horny fujo material.

Can't help you but I'd be interested in recs too. I actually stopped following these threads because they went from hp general to focusing on sexualizing the characters.

That's really interesting - do you have any examples of such fics or what changes they made?

Oh I would have loved that. Magical female friendship trio! Still with lots of drama of course.

No. 264528

Oh I'd love the trio being girls too but I bet there aren't many fics like this that don't end up with weird ships or trans stuff. I saw one fic the other day that turned Hermione into a tif and it was so insulting, and I vaguely remember a fic where Ron was a tim and that made me give up looking into it. Would Ginny even been born if Ron was a girl? I guess the writers could go with the unplanned pregnancy route if they really feel like having her there. I personally would just choose someone else to get the diary, f!Ron seems like an obvious choice.

No. 264532

Yesss. Also, it would be way less creepy than having Harry go for Ron's sister, who was way younger and obvious star struck. I always hated that ship so much.

unfortunately not, since the fics were in my mother language and it seems most authors have deleted their fics when they dropped out of fandom activities… i'm really sad that i didn't save any of them - or at least appreciated them back in the day!

anyways, i did some digging on reddit (ugh) and found some fics that i'm going to give a shot! if any of you are curious:


"Revenge is the misguided attempt to transform shame and pain into pride. Being forsaken and neglected, ignored and forgotten, revenge seems a fairly competent obligation. Good thing he's going to make his brother pay. Dark!Harry! Slytherin!Harry! WrongBoyWhoLived."

>Applied Cultural Anthropology, or

"… How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Cruciatus. Albus Dumbledore always worried about the parallels between Harry Potter and Tom Riddle. But let's be honest, Harry never really had the drive to be the next dark lord. Of course, things may have turned out quite differently if one of the other muggle-raised Gryffindors wound up in Slytherin instead."

>Harry Potter and the Prince of Slytherin

"Harry Potter was Sorted into Slytherin after a crappy childhood. His brother Jim is believed to be the BWL. Think you know this story? Think again. Year Four starts on 9/1/20. NO romantic pairings prior to Fourth Year. Basically good Dumbledore and Weasleys. Limited bashing (mainly of James)."

>Hermione Granger, Demonologist

"Hermione was eight when she summoned her first demon. She was lonely. He asked what she wanted, and she said a friend to have tea parties with. It confused him a lot. But that wasn't going to stop him from striking a promising deal with the young witch. Dark!Hermione, Slytherin!Hermione, occult theme. Complete."

>i won't just survive (no you will see me thrive)

"In which James Potter isn't as dead as everyone thought and Harry has a strong mistrust of all adults.
Reconnecting with his son isn't going to be easy, not just because Harry's in Slytherin."

>The Art of Self-Fashioning

"In a world where Neville is the Boy-Who-Lived, Harry still grows up with the Dursleys, but he learns to be more private about what matters to him. When McGonagall comes to give him his letter, she also unwittingly gives Harry both a new quest and a new passion: Transfiguration. But while Harry deliberately hides his growing skills, Minerva worries more and more about the mysterious, brilliant student writing to her who may be venturing into dangerous magical territory."

>The Heir of the House of Black

"It was the year 1998 and Wizarding Britain was finally starting to heal from the wounds of the Second Wizarding War. 18-year-old Auror trainee Harry Potter was leading his first field operation when he was struck by a Killing Curse that led to an encounter with Death, who then revealed to Harry that he could turn back time and remedy his deepest regrets…

Unbeknownst to Harry, Dark wizarding activities were erupting across Britain and threatening to destroy the fragile society once and for all. But who was the enemy? What were they trying to accomplish? Was it too late to stop them?

Perhaps all the answers lie where Harry was headed…

This is a journey of family, of friendship, of self-discovery, and, as always with Harry Potter, a healthy dose of world-saving."

>The Mystery Under the Trapdoor

"A prophecy named one-year-old Hermione as the Chosen One, and when Voldemort came knocking, Hermione's mother tried to hit him with a table lamp. He laughed at her, killed her, and then he tried to kill her daughter. But she didn't die.
Ten years later, Hermione Granger received a letter."

>The Best Revenge

"AU. Yes, the old Snape retrieves Harry from the Dursleys formula. I just had to write one. Everything changes, because the best revenge is living well. T for Mentor Snape's occasional naughty language. Supportive Minerva. Over three million hits!"

>The Changeling

"Ginny is sorted into Slytherin. It takes her seven years to figure out why."

>The odds were never in my favour

"Ten years of life at the Dursleys have healed Alexandra Potter of any good feelings she might have towards her aunt, uncle and cousin, leaving her friendless and sarcastic about life. On her eleventh birthday, a letter sent by a school of magic may give her a providential escape. Except, of course, things may not be that simple for a girl fan of the Lord of the Rings…"

>The Strange Disappearance of SallyAnne Perks

"Harry recalls that a pale little girl called Sally-Anne was sorted into Hufflepuff during his first year, but no one else remembers her. Was there really a Sally-Anne? Harry and Hermione set out to solve the chilling mystery of the lost Hogwarts student."

>Weasley Girl

"AU: The first friend Harry Potter made on the Hogwarts express wasn't Ronald "Ron" Weasley; it was Veronica "Ronnie" Weasley, first-born daughter of the Weasley clan. And all of a sudden, the future looked very different.
Join the newly-formed "Potter's Gang" (consisting of Harry, Ronnie, Hermione and Neville) in their first year at Hogwarts as they get into all kinds of misadventures, and maybe have to face a certain Dark Lord before they're ready for it.
First novel in the "Weasley Girl" trilogy. Fem!Ron, but not a romance, and not a canon rehash."

Yes, that was part of what got me thinking the stairs might eject peter as soon as he tries to go up, but then what if ron carries him up there? I think it would be funny if girl ron just slide off with him and she has no idea why, but then again, just carrying him up might work? I guess peter would be able to get into the girls dorms if the house elves apparate him there along with the rest of the students stuff but he probably wouldn't be able to go back if he goes down. Maybe it wouldn't be a problem before the third year? Ron did say in the books that scabbers pratically just eat and sleep.

What is your favourite or most memorable crossover fanfic that you read? I only managed to find one of the fics that stood out which surprised me honestly. I think that authors from when the books were still being published have deleted their work or are on another site that is not fanfiction.net, I'll try to find them to make sure

>To The Wind

Reincarnated!Ron. Ron lives. He dies. And somehow, he lives again. Only it's not him this time, it's not the Wizarding World, it's not magic, and he wishes things weren't this complicated.
While abandoned I find it does give a somewhat satisfying regarding Ron displacement and I like how he had to figure things out like the naming convention, culture and a bit of himself. I remember waiting for it to be updated or for the rewrite, but I quite like how it is and it is one of my favourites. Will admit that at the time I never even heard about Naruto. However after reading the manga up to a certain point I went back and still liked it very much

The crossover with the Tenth Doctor from Doctor Who, mistaken for Barty Crouch Jr. and another fic that crossovers with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Faith and Ron go back in time to stop an Apocalypse from happening, not on fanfiction.net, I don't really remember what site it was on.
Ended up sadly with only one fanfic recommendation in the end. However these are what stood out to me through the years and I hope that the rest of them haven't deleted their works. Please share with me, your favourite even obscure ones are welcome.

No. 268809

I haven't read many crossovers so I don't have any recs, I read some hp/doctor who, because that's a crossover I'm really interested in, but they were confusing multi fandom stuff or the type of stuff that hardly explores doctor who setting and magic together (might be just ao3 though, ff.net is hard to navigate so I haven't done any big search), and I'd like to see these two stories actually mixing up and not just the Doctor making everyone's life magically better because time travel, come on, it's the Doctor, not Mary Poppings! That guy is expert in endangering his companions, not fixing their lives, that's the fun of it. I wish there were interesting long hp/doctor who fics. I wonder how come Doctor and the marauders stuff aren't more popular when marauders era seem to be a popular setting for time travel fics, and they seem perfect for long fics because characters like James and Lily just don't have enough characterization, and I'd love to see them and the other marauders explored without the heavy focus on shipping most stories go about. There is so much in these two stories that you could do anything with it, and I think the most interesting thing of doctor who are the villains, so I'd love to see a story that uses them. I'm honestly tired of the many ways time travelling hp characters could end Voldemort, would be nice to see them expelliarmusing some Cybermen or something.

Sort of, but not really. When troons use it it's to insult and discredit women the same way they used femnazi. But terfs aren't mainstream the way a regular "angry feminist" is/was. My older colleagues still don't know what a terf is and when I explain it they think it's silly and dismiss it, but they know exactly what someone means when they talk about an "angry feminist" and assume it's an unjustified screeching man-hating woman who wants all men to die. That's what I meant, I haven't seen any normies who think JKR is the stereotypical "angry feminist" who wants all men to die.

>what do you do when hp and jkr come up in conversation and they start reeeing?
I ignore everything they say and don't engage at all with anything jkr/HP related. I literally act as if I haven't seen any of it ever. If it comes up in more direct ways I play dumb and innocently change the subject. If they say "jkr is a terf" I'm just like "huh I don't really keep up with online drama and celebrities at all, oh by the way have you seen this Other Thing (some cherry picked mutual interest, so I know they'll take the bait) what do you think of it?? Isn't This Thing cool??".

If they're still reeeing I ignore it and go on about the topic I brought up. I try to give them 0 satisfaction for bringing it up, they only parrot these things for social points so if it doesn't go according to their subconscious plan (i say thing, you agree, now you say same thing, and i agree = social bonding, i did good) it doesn't give them "i did the socially right thing"-dopamine and they'll stop bringing it up.

If needed I plan to use the excuse: "negative topics like that are really triggering for me right now so can we pretty please talk about something else". If REALLY pressed on something like "twaw right? you agree RIGHT??" I again keep it as short as possible and then change the subject like "yeah of course, anyway Other Thing…" just so they drop it and lower their guard.

I can play these people all day, they're all brainwashed and use the same tactics and arguments without thinking for themselves when it comes to troon topics kek

Have you guys noticed the attitude shifted a bit? TRAs used to say you're not allowed to play or promote the game, or to read or promote the books or movies at all because doing so is supporting terf queen JKR (which should be punishable with death!).

Now I see a lot of them instead trying to distance HP things from JKR, such as them saying the movies were made by other people and not her so it's ok to watch them, and covering/removing her name from the book covers while still keeping the books. It's like they noticed normal people have no interest in cancelling HP for some unspecified reason for trans people, so they pretend that people still care about trans rights by saying consuming HP is fine as long as you still agree JKR is evil.

Oh yeah. I see it in groups that have normies mixed with gendies and it's mostly the gendies and handmaidens doing this to justify their contributions to fandom or why they're still consuming HP stuff without feeling guilty. I think thats dumb. You either stop consuming something by the author you disagree with entirely or you aknowledge their work is theirs. To me this is very hypocritical to keep consuming something by an author you don't want give money to when even producing art or fanfiction is a way to keep their legacy alive, so it makes no sense to me these people keep creating stuff while claiming the author won't get anything out of it and their legacy is dead. Would be better if they had the spine to just stop consuming anything by JKR and stand by their choices and beliefs.
It's not even that hard, JKR is one of the most famous authors but there are lots of other childrens books. The TRAs could easily start promoting other childrens book authors with the large platform they have, but you only see them using it to try dragging JKR or silencing and persecuting other women for wrongthink or to promote harmful shit to kids. None of the books they try promoting come close to HP, because it is always trans shit with pedo messages.
It's funny they think they will be on the "right side of history" while acting like freaking Umbridge or Voldy. Can't wait for the day this all will come crashing down on them.

Also a bit ot but the group I'm in always have someone saying shit about JKR, sometimes they don't even refer to her by name, still they all love Lovecraft's work. I read some of it and was so uncomfortable by the amount of racist shit in his stories that I couldn't read anymore. I find extremely weird these people have the gall to talk about Harry Potter being racist while expressing no problem with Lovecraft's stories, which I always see people talking about but rarely goes into debate about the shitty stuff unlike Harry Potter. People also comment on another author (don't remember his name but I think his book got 1 movie and it's about war and some ant like aliens? I only watched the movie but can't recall the name or much of it) And these same people are always so respectful about this author and the way they talk about his work while still aknowledging he is problematic because of his views. It just makes me feel like I'm going insane, these different expectations for female authors, how people can easily ignore the shit like racism that is in stories of the types of Lovecraft but whoa, a woman dared call her asian character Cho Chang and defend women's rights. Makes me want to cry of frustration.

I've seen some, mostly TIFs, bragging about how the Percy Jackson series is so much better than HP because the (male) author is sucking tranny dicks and balls on the internet, or how that series about warrior cats (I'm not sure about the title anymore) is so much better and more mature and not written by terfs.

Oh and I forgot to add, a very close friend of mine won't stop calling JKR an asshole and a transphobe while also being a huge Nicki Minaj fangirl. She had no clue what Jews were until very recently because of where she's from and was saying just a few years ago similar thing to what Whoppi Goldberg said not that long ago, and just a few months ago she told me in private that JKR is antisemitic because of the goblins. Another very close friend of ours is Jewish and in a very separate conversation she said that JKR is problematic but you'd have to be stupid or paranoid to call her an antisemite, also in private. I wonder how a conversation between these two would go kek. The first friend was also giving us side eyes when we planned a trip to go to that HP movie set place you can visit for a few hours but I don't give a fuck. I pretend I don't know and don't care.

It always comes down to women doing all the work, lmao. You never see a TIM promoting anything that isn't their own work, God forbid they think of other people.
I wonder what they mean by "more mature"? I keep seeing people saying the same stuff, but HP have themes that might go flying straight over the kids heads if they're too young to understand, because it simply isn't too on the nose the way TRAs like. You see that a lot in fanfics, they always write preachy shit and there is no nuance at all. It's like we regressed to that childish belief that if an author writes about a "problematic" society and these problems are not solved as soon as they're brought to light, then it means the author endorse these things. Drives me nuts!

Ramblings about fanfics and prechy authors:
The other day I read a fic where Lupin helps Lily bring awareness to the whole menstruation thing and honestly, I can't really remember how they did that because as I read that shit all I could think is "why the hell a boy in the 70s would care about something won't ever affect him" (and a spineless boy like Lupin, no less!) and kinda blocked most of it but I knew as soon menstruation was brought up that the author would be using THAT phrase.. yes we are talking about "people who menstruate". Just imagine hating women that much that you're proud of it. and don't get me started on the oc that appears in the first chapters, who is obviously a woman but calls herself something stupid and later when she gets out of Hogwarts she is able to live her truth… as a feminine, stupidly named, woman. Can't imagine having actual problems as a woman in the 70s
Another story which I already knew it was going to be a trainwreck but read it anyway because curiosity got the best of me was one where the author made Snape some sort of black haired Draco Malfoy and completely disregarded his backstory so they could justify James bullying him instead of giving James an actual personality to make us care for him despite him being a dumb bully. It is easier to just have James be a perfect person and Snape be the designated bad guy than addressing stuff, typical "this character is bad, so he deserves it, thus this is not a bad thing". It is all black and white. There is no grey, no flaws, and no chance for these characters to grow, and this, funnily enough, makes these stories come across as very immature, like a teen wanting to change the world but not really dealing with actual hardships, the consequences and results of change, and growing up and realizing people are more complicated than being just good or evil, which even Harry Potter himself came to realize.
I think the irony about that last story was that the author wanted to make a commentary on classism and poverty that she felt JKR was unable to do, all while ignoring the actual canon poor character and making him a Draco clone. (And fucking tagging it as canon compliant!)
Sorry about this wall of text about fics but I get so frustrated wih this fandom completely disregarding the characters backstories and stuff from canon and then claiming they are exploring "themes JKR was too much of a coward to explore"!!!! Like, dude have you read the fucking books. Why do they need more mature if they can't grasp half of the messages HP is trying to convey…

Lmao that is even better.
I also remember some people promoting Mortal Instruments as an alternative to HP, but the story was initially HP fanfic and that will never cease to be funny.

Then some people say they're still gonna play bc they love HP and they can separate the art from the artist, a bunch of people will "gently remind" them about the antisemitic goblins, supporting of slavery bc house elves, Cho Chang's racist name, etc all that old dog water discourse from 2012-era tumblr.

Incredible dumb question but could someone spoonfeed me on why this is offensive like if I were to check any fantasy novel there is always something by someone's standard offensive, racist, sexist and more, like the book series after GRRM but people just gobble that up without any problem. Is it because of the setting of the Harry Potter books is in the 20 century "modern age" and not in the year of our bumfuck lord of the greatest invention the wheel.
I remember faintly of the Harry Potter discourse on tumblr but that I think was before everyone hated the problematic JK for not supporting trannies.
Mostly a PR move to appease the you know who crowd, I just hope we don't have to interact with her much and if not she just got an unfortunate cold.

No. 273905

Yes, you are correct. Fantasy races (goblins, dwarves, etc), discrimination, slavery, and sexism are known tropes of the fantasy genre that many authors, old and new, still implement in their stories today. Some definitely worse than others and some not. I'm reading a popular fantasy series now that features slavery of both humans and a made up race and no one is offended by it in discussions ever. In fact, no one says any of this stuff is offensive in other books (YA community aside). So why does JKR get shit for it? Even back before she was labeled trannyphobic and hated for wrong think? I always saw discourse pop up on my dashboard about those things and I didn't even use tumblr for HP fandom or social justice. I remember seeing some Asian girl's slam poetry about being offended over the name Cho Chang. The argument is that it's two last names from two different cultures. I remember posts of people saying it's bad that the dwarves didn't want to be freed. Also that Hermione was white savior-ing them. The goblins as Jewish caricatures take might be a more recent thing as white nationalists online started to hit major news and freak people out? Not sure, but the rest was all before idiots crowned her as the new Hitler so the discourse was never flat out attacks on her as a person like it is today. Just braindead takes. But also many people standing up against these braindead takes, which now gets you labeled as a terf, dogpiled, and excommunicated so no one wants to stand up anymore. I think all the nitpicking is because Harry Potter might be the only book series these people read that wasn't homework/required reading so that's their only point of reference. And because she's a female author and women are always over-criticized for any creative work they put out in the world.

A comment on a video of a youtuber playing Hogwarts Legacy, I'm laughing but it was the only negative comment I found, all the other comments were excited about the game. The video in question is by callmekevin, who is easily one of the most unproblematic people I've ever seen, I was wondering if he maybe wouldn't play it even tho he's such a fan of HP. I'm using him as a reference because he's not at all controversial or dramatic. I guess that now that it's released, the tra cries will be drown out by people enjoying the game.

>could someone spoonfeed me on why this is offensive
It isn't actually offensive, but that tumblr era was OBSESSED with calling out people to cancel them, especially celebrities. Before this era of trans being the single topic sjw cares about it was a little bit more broad. There were entire blogs dedicated to listing every teeny tiny little wrongdoing every famous/semi-famous person had done. They wore makeup slightly too dark for their skin? Blackface. Wore fake fur? Supporting animal cruelty by making fur seem glam. Cosplaying anime characters who don't even have their race stated? Racist yellowface.
Not a single one of those are exaggerations, I saw all of that happen.

>I remember seeing some Asian girl's slam poetry about being offended over the name Cho Chang. The argument is that it's two last names from two different cultures.
I remember this too, she called JKR racist for not using proper Korean names and saying Cho is a last and not a first name etc… and then a Chinese girl commented on it correcting it that the name was a valid Chiense name. The name doesn't look Korean to begin with so idk what that poety girl was on about but the video of it got big.

Personally I see the Hermione-slave elf thing as a sort of commentary on the trope in fantasy content, because they ARE so common and no one usually bats an eyelid about it. It's a funny unusual take on it.

The goblin thing is… interesting. I honestly think some sort of 4chan level trolls started the rumor to make people associate jews with goblins under the guise of "social justice". But there is some kind of history to it as well. The traits European folklore give to evil creatures like goblins, trolls, imps, fairies etc are very similar, they're just the "evil" traits: ugly, too small or too big, greedy, evil, dirty, hairy, big noses and ears, evil pointy eyes, sharp teeth, they use dirty tricks. And so on.
And what do you call your enemies? Bad things! You insult them by making them out to be like these ungodly trolls and goblins. If you look up old steretypes about whatever group that culture considers an enemy you get the same traits as I listed before. So while the goblin stereotype has been used for jews on occasion to insult them, they've also been used for countless other groups of people and weren't a "jew" thing. It's like how the Brits used to portray the Irish as monekys and apes. Doesn't mean monekeys and apes are bad or that Curious George or Tarzan is meant to represent Irish people.

Sorry for sperging

I'm not asian, so what do I know, but the Cho Chang thing seems more like something people would react with "lmao they think Cho Chang is a name, westerners are so stupid" rather than being hurt by it. Either way, troons only care about themselves, so what difference does it make?

I hate when people do that, like, just don't fucking play the game, don't make content about it, stop being so stupid! Anyway I hope he plays more of it and ignore the dumbasses in the comments.
Hopefully a random celebrity will say something unforgivable soon and the troons will move to a different target so the female youtubers will be able to play this game without the drama too.

He's friends (or more?) with gay people like Sirius and respects their "genital preferences" and thinks dressing boggart Snape up as a woman is funny. David Thewlis himself has been silent about JKR afaik which I take as a good sign.

Am I the only one a bit disappointed that we never got to see the actual robes like in the books in either the films or games? Picrel is what JK drew but I seen some cool renditions of the robes from the fans and I was a bit sad that they only wore basic brit school uniforms instead.
I remember a titbit where Snape got pushed over or something from the marauders which ended up with his pants being exposed which wouldn't have happen if he wore the film uniforms.

I guess the kids would find it too weird? I think 10 year old me would at first, and uniforms have this private school feel a lot more which is what I imagine they were going for? The first movie had the little pointy hats at some point but we don't see them anymore in the second I believe.
Speaking of that Snape scene, I noticed some people headcanon he started wearing pants under his robes after the event, so this doesn't happen again kekk, guess it's my headcanon too. I really like canon Snape but I also love what movie Snape wears so I like when people mix it.
I think my biggest disappointment when it comes to clothes in the movies was Dumbledore's clothes… dude looks so boring. Big missed opportunity, movie Dumbledore would be young me fav character if he dressed like he does in the books. I definitely like him a lot more in the books, and I don't have anything against the actor.. he looks… Dumbledorish, but man, were is his sense of style?
I love these ridiculous names..
Dumbledore would be too. Remember when he gave Snape a hat similar to what Neville gave the boggart? And then he wore it when Snape rejected! I guess the entire wizarding world wouldn't subscribe to this muggle madness.. except maybe Hermione because she tries to understand every side and is too empathetic and young, like many of us when we were sympahetic to trans bullshit. Hopefully a female teacher would throw her some sense. Women are women, muggle or witch, the struggles of our sex are the same.

His refusal to comment weighs in our favor. TRA and handmaidens are purely performative and think barfing out their propaganda is the only correct and righteous thing to do. If he was in the cult he would be chanting "twaw", calling JKRs views problematic and controversial. Instead he memed and says HP will be in his life forever. Our wolfboy is a secret terf.

I think the characters actors we know who have either supported or "refused to comment" on Rowling (which make them probable terfs) are:
Remus Lupin
Lucius Malfoy
Draco Malfoy
Bellatrix Lestrange

I honestly think many of the actors who haven't said a single word about it are pro-JKR. There is no excuse for a handmaiden to stay silent and we know rabid troons have been asking them for comments.

No. 274554

Yeah, even the minor few-scene actors that are TRA have been saying so, like the loser who played Percy who only featured in a couple of scenes in the whole franchise. Everyone a part of the bigger-roles cast is likely at least sympathetic to her reasonable views about the acknowledgment of reality over fiction being important rather than submitting to male delusions at the expense of womens safety.

No. 274575

Iirc Robbie (Hagrid) was the only one to directly say what Rowling said wasn't bad and people are just looking to be offended. That's why troons literally celebrated his death, because he agreed and stood up for women's rights. He died a legend.

There's something so sweet about Hagrid being the one to truly stand up for what is right, and then we have the marauder making a meme when mocking it, splendid casting. I wonder if the fact that actors who play evil characters are used to unfairly getting shit (because people can't separate the role from the actor) has a part in why a lot of them played villains. Or maybe it's because people who play villains are often quirky and used to being "outcasts", not afraid to not blindly follow the norm.

No. 274599

I personally don't need him to be a radfem ally, I see Robbie as a normal average guy who stood up for what should be normal beliefs like "women deserve single sex spaces away from males" and the rest doesn't matter in this context. It's not a right/left thing, it's just an obvious fact that everyone should support but the rest are too cowardly to even say.

For anyone that doesn't know this, you can actually talk to the teachers and learn about them. They are always inside their classrooms, so if you happen to be near, you can always go inside and talk to them. I think you have to complete a certain number of their assignments before you are able to interact. I have only met and talked to Professor Hecat and Professor Ronen, still at the beginning of the game even tho I have played for 10 hours already. I just keep losing myself inside the castle, everything is so distracting, kek.

The game is horrible. The devs were so lazy they have everyone in the game use they/them pronouns for the player character even though they let us choose between witch/wizard at the start. Was it so hard to record lines with both pronouns like every other game? I'm afraid that all games with character creator are all going to be like that now. The majority of games have male protagonists. Games with character creator are the only ones that let us play as a woman. Now they're going to get rid of most female protagonists in video games. Our only options will be males or they/them mentally ill retards. I hate americans and trannies so much. They want to erase women and girls from every aspect of existence.

That doesn't seem to be an issue with just that game, I like JRPGs a lot and Nintendo games in general and apparently localizers are told to remove mentions of genders as often as possible so apparently in FE Engage you have shit like dialogs with a guy saying he find women attractive changed to him being "interested in people watching" or whatever the fuck, and in ACNH the villagers will talk about your character with they/them if they're not directly talking to you (allegidly, I'm playing it in another language).

I like Thewlis as Lupin, I think he was perfect for that part but yeah, they're all too old and it shows. Sirius, Snape, Lupin and Pettigrew were supposed to be in their 30s. I do hope they get that right if they do a remake one day, and no fuglies Chalamet-looking guys for Sirius, I'd vomit.

>trannies and handmaidens cry abuse/whine about the game to normies, who don't give single shit about it
Although some normie youtubers and other has given the classic I don't support/or hate Jk, sowy speech
What I was surprised about the most is that people are peaking with the game due to the whiners and when I took a second look at Sirona, which at the time I thought every man and women looked kinda ugly at the game but nope it was just Sirona who looked haggard and ugly looking like most trannies

My s/o is playing it and I am watching because I am too busy working on my own stuff, and gosh, this game is amazing. I am seriously impressed, i have never thought that it would be that good. I know people keep asking for co-op or multiplayer but this game feels like a pure single-player RPG, i am deeply in love with the buildings.
Also, the 'tranny' character that the devs put in the game makes me laugh a lot. Even in the wizard world, trannies will always be the most obvious men in skirts, kek. The name too, ~Sir~ona Rayan. I am glad they kept some realism. It's a male character's face with a female hairstyle and chest, while still having a male voice, and doesn't seem annoying at all. An extremely self-aware one too. But this tranny is literally a small npc that you shouldn't care about, after all it's just a npc.

Let's be real, no one knew about that one specific uprising anyway (well unless you're a hardcore neo-nazi maybe… what's that about nazi-to-trans pipeline again, the memes transwomen make about themselves becaue it's so common? hmmm) a quick wikipedia check will tell you there was also notable jewish persecution in: 1600, 1603, 1608, 1614, 1615, 1616, 1618, 1619, 1622…

Agree. Jew-anon here. I found this horn in the game yesterday and literally didn’t think anything of it, bc I’m not constantly looking for stuff like that.

Imagine a chronic online loser saying this out loud to some normie Jewish people, they'd sound completely antisemitic

Goblins, trolls, any ugly creature etc, is seen as nefarious. It's literally fantasy shorthand to separate good and bad creatures, that's why the bankers are goblins.

No. 275516

Hope I'm not being too annoying but I'm copy-pasting this from 2X to give advice on what to do if you have friends who are mad at you for playing the game.

Just a tip for if/when your friends attack you over it, saying something along the lines of
>but it hurts trans people and JKR is transphobic
Ask how many games they've played that have sexist depictions of women. And violence towards women. Many games have literal acutal, brutal violence depicted. Plenty of women have been begging you to not play these sexist violent games, for years. If you didn't see it it's only because you give 0 shit about women and didn't listen, because it's not hard to find. Does that mean you hate women and want this violence to be real? Does it mean you support sexist violent treatment of women? And the age old question: did these violent games turn you and other people violent? Or was it… just a game?

This game doesn't actually depict or promote any anti-trans rhetoric. (If they say goblins are jews call them out on the fact that they're wrong and that's a retarded myth made by antisemitic people)

And taking away the fantasy aspect, how many shitty sexist and abusive game devs haven't been revealed? Why aren't you protesting against them like you've done for HL? Is this literal sexual abuse of real women (meaning they exist and it happens, not "cis") not as bad as trans people having their feelings hurt that a millionaire who wasn't involved in the game got richer? Does it mean everyone playing the game is in 100% support of that sexist game dev? Or did they perhaps just want to play an exciting game they've been waiting for for years?

To not be accused of being a terf add in something like:
You know I'm not against trans people, I don't think the staff is against trans people either, I just want to enjoy this game with my friends so I will do so.

If they STILL disagree and think you're a bad person take note and in the future every time they mention a game google to see if it has ANY sexist depictions of women, violence, controversies surrounding staff members etc and ask why the support that. Every time.

If you lose a friend over THIS, they weren't worth keeping around. Go make better friends.

I think this was discussed on an earlier thread, the reasons why people hate the Weasley parents:
>Having a bunch of children while aware that they can't afford it.
>Ron mentions that his father could have had a higher paying job but that he didn't because he loved muggle shit, thus prioritizing his retarded hobbies over the wellbeing of his children. Though Arthur seems to eventually change his mind and accepts a promotion later in the series, it seems he did so reluctantly, as there's this quote in the book when he's promoted:
""So you see, it’s a very im­por­tant job, and I tell him it’s just sil­ly to miss deal­ing with spark plugs and toast­ers and all the rest of that Mug­gle rub­bish.” Mrs. Weasley end­ed her speech with a stern look, as if it had been Har­ry sug­gest­ing that it was nat­ural to miss spark plugs."
>The whole reason why they have so many children is because they wanted a daughter, but once Ginny is born they ignore her and allow her siblings to mistreat her. So what was even the point? For example Quidditch was one of Ginny's biggest passions but her siblings didn't even let her play to the point she had to secretly steal their brooms and play by herself.

No. 275874

Doublepost but I wanted to add, I recently reread the entire series and god I dislike book Ron so much, he's so much drama. I counted 6 big conflicts between the trio in which Ron was either the literal cause or made things much worse. I know they're children and all but he was so fucking immature about everything compared to the other kids, every time he ostracized Hermione or abandoned Harry it was over some dumb shit. People go on about how Ron was so "loyal" but it's actually Hermione who was always loyal, Ron's loyalty was fickle as hell.
Also Ron's comments about other girls are so off-putting throughout the series, not only the way he talks about unattractive girls ("We don’t want to end up with a pair of trolls.” referring to Eloise Midgen) but also about attractive ones ("They don’t make them like that at Hogwarts!” referring to Fleur). Nothing extreme but it's off-putting and uncalled for especially when nobody else talks like that.
Also the way he kept dating Lavender despite not liking her anymore, badmouthing her behind her back and admitting he only liked her to snog. He was absolutely awful to her while she was just at a loss of what was wrong, constantly asking Harry about it because every time she wanted to communicate with Ron he would hide or pretend to be asleep. And in the end Lavender was the one who ended things because Ron would never man up.
And I'm not even gonna mention how awful he was to Hermione through the years. But the fact that he won her over by using a manual on how to pick up girls just gives creepy con artist vibes. It's tragic that Hermione ended up with him, she deserved so much better.

No. 275880

Agreed. He probably picks up that kind of stuff from equally immature George and Fred. Hermione always seemed like a fixer though, she probably enjoys the fact that Ron is helpless and needs her, but that in turn is a source of emasculation for him.

No. 275884

nta but at least fred and george have personalities. and are intelligent enough to invent useful and entertaining products. i'm rewatching the movies and i kind of liked it when ron got bitchy because before that he had no personality whatsoever except "friend" i guess. but then there was never any positive development to balance out the negative, he never learned from his jealousy or developed his own skills or whatever. at some points its like, why are harry and hermione friends with him. in the goblet of fire he's downright mean to everyone then never apologizes or grows. average male ginger.

No. 275887

Oh yeah, the way he treats girls, especially Lavender and Hermione, I think I said it somewhere in the old threads this is pretty much what I hate about him even though I like Ron.
This whole discussion plus someone mentioning slytherin Harry reminds me of a fic I read once where Ron is sorted into slytherin… the fic is not even about him but I liked the idea and I wish there were more fics about it that actually focus on him and his family without going "dark Ron" or whatever and that also changes a bit his dynamic with Harry and Hermione. I also wish there were more fics about the siblings dynamics outside Hogwarts. Ginny is my least favorite Weasley but she was interesting during the chamber of secrets with the diary (lmao that valentine she sent Harry), so I'd really like to see more about that but it always comes down to romance in these fics and I just want to read the siblings interacting!!!! I guess people just hate the Weasleys too much to write a long fic about them kek

not really related to your comment but i also used to be pretty into drarry, and it struck me recently as i was looking for hp fics that i just… dont care for it too much anymore. my problem with hp shipping i think is that while there's loads of characters, none of them seem overly compatible. harrys not a bad character at all but it's hard to imagine him having much chemistry with anyone kek, except maybe tom riddle/voldemort in theory but then all the fics for that ship tend to be wattpad tier garbage.

You have my approval. Snily will be forever my otp, but my fujo side awakes for Sirius/Snape (because drama), and Snupin is always good too. I just hate that fanon makes Lupin way too nice. He's a freaking marauder and a spineless prick, guy definitely thought Snape in a dress was hilarious and might've find it funny when Snape tried to open the map and it insulted him kek, besides lying to his face about it.

AYRT mte fanon Remus feels like he's been uwu pure soft boy forever. I used to read Sirius/Regulus fic and in it Sirius and Remus would usually be a couple, Sirius would be the most insane abusive brother of all time and Remus would be the smol gay bean at home doing chores for his bf. They often seemed to make Sirius worse than James even though they're both vile gays in the books. If I ever get into fic again I want to explore Snape ships more, the gayrauders were so obsessed with him it's comical in a way. Also Snack is a great ship name kek

Tumblr really sucks now, I only go there to get some nice HP fanart but now with the HL ordeal might not be a good idea… plus all the good artists that are still there are some flavor of gender special because fujos are LiTerAllY oppressing the gays uwu~ aka self hating straight women, so you have to be a non-woman to be openly fujo, pretty pathetic and sad.
I saw so much weird discourse last time I went there, bizarre shit like how Snape is a tots queer icon and JKR totally did him dirty and that is proof she is homophobic. Backwards explanation to why (something about looks, bad at sports, something something about brewing potions being like cooking = woman role = queer?) crazy ass shit and that was enough to make me drop any hopes of ever going back to tumblr. I miss so much when people would share their headcanons and they had nothing to do with politics and retarded gender roles and thats all they'd be, headcanons, not a rule you can't deviate from. Lets hope HL makes this fandom less annoying.

I've read the books all the way back in middle school, and I think I want to get back into reading fantasy books and stuff that's not challenging and will just cheer me up. I literally remember nothing of the main story besides the huge stuff like the obvious ones, since it was so long ago. Would Harry Potter be a comforting book to read during my breaks? I keep seeing so many memes about JK Rowling's writing and it just occurred to me that it's been years since I actually read something she wrote and published, and maybe it would be nice to just read it for the sake of fun and relaxation. Maybe I just like the fantasy aesthetic I saw in Hogwarts legacy ads and I've been thinking about Harry Potter a lot since the massive HP video game blowout, and from a friend saying the game was really fun.

No. 276366

Yes, I think HP is a good comforting book series to read.

>I keep seeing so many memes about JK Rowling's writing

It amazes me that adults who read a book series aimed at kids(/young adults) as kids and loved it, are now as grown ass adults saying the writing was "actually bad all along". No they were just written on a not-too-complex level because they were for kids, and as a kid you proved that it hit the target. You as an adult now thinking it's not adult enough is not a flaw of the books. What's next, super mario isn't an accurate enough representation of a plumber for you?

Oh she used harmless, fun, silly, "stereotypical" names in a fantasy book? Boohoo what bad writing.
Oh as a child you didn't notice that the old man who preaches love, dresses in flamboyant clothes, has a calm sweet disposition, and had a close "complex" relationship with another young man - was gay all along? Must be Rowling retconning him to be gay to seem woke.
Oh she used an "evil" folklore creature as it's been described in fairy tales for centuries? No, she must have invented it herself to represent an oppressed minority group that she hates.

eugh legit. what really made me think about it was when reading something about how tonks would've graduated from hogwarts the year harry started. meanwhile lupin had been at hogwarts with harrys PARENTS. but no in lupins mind that's not a problem i guess. ik its a war and that can explain the horrible pairings at the end of the books, and im still overall sympathetic for lupin (i mean its hard not to be, that's the whole point of his character), but idk it really put a sour taste in my mouth

Are there any areas of fandom or ships in particular that seem to attract gendies or is it more of a general HP fandom thing atm? When I last used dumblr I remember some people (iirc mostly Remus/Sirius shippers) trying to push FTM!Remus but they'd make up all sorts of shit like James is south asian, Sirius is hypersexual (more like hypergay), all the recent kueer discourse stuff comes off like people are trying very hard to compensate for liking a series written by an evil terf who literally murders trans folx. One of the funniest things though is when people act like they never enjoyed JKR's writing and that HP is really mediocre when it's so clear they spent their whole childhood/adolescence/maybe early adulthood completely obsessed with it.

No. 276924

Never seen troon Remus thankfully but I had the displeasure of seeing ftm Snape in fanart, makes me so mad! Just draw/write him as a girl! Also mtf!Harry, ftm!Hermione and the worst imo ftm!Ginny in fics.
I noticed the fandom nowadays seems really young, and some people seem to have only read HP and fanfiction, so the wokeness comes from there I suppose, they're stuck in a bubble where everyone has the exact same opinions.
In my experience, Remus specifically and wolfstar are gendie magnets. I'd rather read Remadora than wolfstar because I know there won't be any bullshit unless they make Tonks kweer [insert 500 labels]. I think this might be due to Remus being The ultimate softboi.. these people might've not really read the books because Remus doesn't resemble canon one bit. I don't wanna go "it's probably tiktok's fault" but it's probably tiktok's fault kek, I have no idea where this stuff is coming from but I heard HP is pretty popular on tiktok. Besides, I keep seeing characters that appear in the books in name only becoming these huge characters in fics, like Dorcas/Marlene ship, I had no idea who these two were.. imagine my susprise when reading the books again to find out they're just names. Dorcas/Marlene fics where they're not the main pairing are performative as hell, you just can tell they're there so the writer doesn't get accused of fetishizing The Poor Gay Men.
Also Regulus seems to attract weirdos too, I just found that "jegulus" is a thing and I hate it. Sirius would never allow this.
I have a really hard time liking Regulus because people always write him as some soft misunderstood little boy who never really believed any shit his family taught him… I don't understand how people can write Snape as a honest to God psychopath serial killer and in the same story make Regulus a poor boy that had no idea what he was getting into lol.
I noticed f/m content have less woke crap but it's bleeding into it recently too with nonbinarism, cus wearing pants and cutting your hair short actually makes you less of a woman lmao. Snape and Lily are almost a queer couple if you ask me, she only needs a pixie cut, since he is already pretty femme with his cooking skills, long hair and testerics.

Same! I'm about 10 hours in (going at a very leisurely pace) and I'm having so much fun just exploring and looking at all the details. Everything is gorgeous, I picked Hufflepuff just because I figured their common room would be the coziest and it exceeded my expectations, pic related. I haven't fast travelled once outside of the times the game forces you to, just because walking around the castle is so nice. I also don't mind the boring collectibles since it gives you more incentive to explore, and if you were going to spend a ton of time exploring anyway you just kinda naturally come across them without having to search. Difficulty wise I play on normal but I'm definitely not great at the combat yet, I barely get by while chugging health potions and panic-mashing the dodge button. I think that's just because it's been a while since I last played a game with real time combat as opposed to turn based, and I'm prone to panicking when reaction speed is important. It'll get better with some practice.
It's a great game overall but if I had to give one point of critique I do feel a bit disappointed with the lack of interaction with npcs. The students in the castle are fun to watch, but the fact that they don't react to your character at all regardless of what you do makes it feel a bit hollow sometimes, like you're a ghost unless there's specific quest-related dialogue. I understand that giving every random npc voice lines and dialogue options would be unrealistically ambitious, but I wish I could at least talk to professors without having to wait for them to talk to me. It also would be cool to have a bunch of random students and hogsmeade npcs that you could have short interactions with, even just simple dialogue options that aren't relevant to the plot but offer some immersion.

Also wolfstar has always been boring with a lot of entitled fans. When HP fandom was mostly based on livejournal i might be an oldfag Regulus was written as a soft twink then, too. Shipping him with Gaymes Poppers didn't used to be popular but there was a lot of him with Sirius or Remus, usually a uwu bottom with a dark side so maybe he's even more of an OC now? People think he's cute and looks like Timmy Chalamet or something. Pretty sure JKR specified he was uglier than Sirius and definitely died a virgin.

I don't care that others claim they don't like it, but it's so silly to see so many people I personally know just blatantly lying and expecting everyone else to just jump on the bandwagon. I'm not saying shit. Radio silence from me on all fronts.
They know their boycott has failed miserably and they're just grasping at fucking anything at this point.
I'll get shit on here for admitting it, but I consider myself an ally, to a very specific & small degree.. I want the people who are truly suffering to be able to do what they need to in order to stay alive and be safe, but they need to leave others the fuck alone & not be fucking pedos. I guess I'm only an ally to a smaller percentage… but now even that is dwindling. My patience is wearing so thin. There's so few "good ones". I have trans friends playing the game too, staying just as silent as I am. TiF's only, of course lol.
I dunno. My eyes are just sore from rolling so many times every fucking day. It's taking a small degree of effort to not just reply "COPE." On every stupid post. Today it was the joke, "HP fans used to have one lightning bolt on their heads, now they have two!"
Like okay. Fucker. Push your more normal allies further and further away. See if I'll show up for the fight when shit that actually matters goes down. Why don't they use the energy to fight where it actually makes a difference?? Legislature in the US is being pushed every fucking day, but you ask any of these screechy dipshit troons and handmaids about it and they have no idea what you're talking about because they're too preoccupied harassing internet strangers about the video games they play in private.

Pathetic. The T would be nowhere without the LGB and any other group they desperately latch themselves onto. The LGB is the only reason they're still standing.

I've been getting more Harry Potter reels on Instagram for cookware and legos and it's great. It's mostly filled with positive comments, but every now and again you get people shouting rubbish about how JKR is anti trans and anti abortion. Where the hell did the anti abortion rhetoric come from? They are just making shit up about her now, hoping it sticks to people stupid enough not to do their research and feel sorry for the 'poor trannies.' I hate it! I am becoming even more of a TERF because now it feels so personal. They compared the death eaters to nazis when George Lucas did the exact same thing with Sith and Republic in Star Wars. Why doesn't anyone talk about that?
They're only attacking her because she's a woman speaking out. I will defend JKR. So many idiots who obviously loved Harry Potter growing up are saying she's a shit writer and Harry Potter is childish, etc. Then why is it such a generational series??

Luna would never, she is a sweet girl and I don't understand how these people read HP and think JKR would have written anything like this.

>I don't understand how these people read HP and think JKR would have written anything like this.

At first I thought these people were just stupid and had no reading comprehension but it's been so long since they started twisting her words that I think it's done on purpose to make her seem like a bigot and a retarded, incompetent writer. They're just seething that hard. They're the same people who started the whole "Harry Potter is a rich white guy with famous parents who marries his high school sweetheart and becomes a cop!!1!" like yeah but that's a very surafce level interpretation and his story is more similar to, idk Cinderella because of all the crazy hardships he has to overcome to not have a shit life anymore with his abusive family and his crazy stalker who murdered his parents and ruined his life. They know all that but don't care. Same thing with "JKR said Hermione was always meant to be black but she's just deflecting to hie her transphobia" when all she said was that Hermione can be interpreted as a black british girl if you want and that you should stop being racist towards her actress in the Cursed Child (or whatever it's called).

Sorry for blogging but I don't have anyone to rave to about the game!
I'm 53 hours in and only have the final boss battle left in the main quest line (already failed it a bunch of times so I'm going to work on 100%ing everything else to level up more before I try again). I love this game so much. I'm not much of a gamer and really only play stuff like Sims but HL goes so slowly in teaching you how to play that I was able to actually learn all of it and I can use all my abilities in fights! (Normally I just pick a handful of abilities and stick to those which makes most games super hard.) If you're really good at this kind of game I can see how it would be frustrating, but many of the basic game mechanics were new to me - if anyone is hesitating to play just for lack of game skill I highly recommend it!
The game crashes every few hours but I usually don't lose much progress and I have only encountered three bugs that weren't fixed by saving and reloading the game and all three were extremely minor (an invisible questgiver npc but I was able to do the quest just fine, a cutscene where the dialog was too quiet, an instance where I couldn't talk to side quest npcs until advancing the main quest but the quest descriptions didn't say so). For context I have reasonably good specs with only 16gb RAM and I'm playing with everything on ultra (except foliage on high) and no ray tracing.
The main quest and main side quests have a feeling of urgency to them that makes it really satisfying and also hard to put the game down. I regret not doing more of the puzzles in between quest events because being so near the end has taken the wind out of my sails a bit. Some other nonnies were complaining about the Merlin trials but I did at least 10 of them before I found a repeated puzzle, and even the repeats have just enough variation to keep me from getting annoyed. In fact I love the puzzles in general. Most are extremely easy and obvious and puzzle elements are reused everywhere, but again, with just enough variation. There's one type of Merlin trial that I haven't been able to figure out (it's the one with rectangular blocks that have a diamond hole in each side where you can see some kind of crystal in the middle) but I've gone this far without looking anything up so I'm not going to start now.
There is just one small thing that I wish they had included… When it's winter time none of the students are wearing gloves or scarves. That would have been such an amazing little touch. Even better if the student npcs wore casual clothes when you meet them in Hogwarts or go on a mission with them.
Ok I'm done, thank you for coming to my keynote!

agreed, i also have constantly seen wolfstar shippers harassing random blackinnon shippers now even more than back then, trying to “cancel” it and calling it homophobic and it makes me laugh as if either of them are even canon in the first place. people in that fandom really can’t have fun anymore. also i don’t even remember how that jegulus ship even became a thing and grew so popular? was it from that fanfic? but there is also a misogyny problem i heard that some of those jegulus shippers have against lily unsurprisingly.

I don't understand why they think it's so weird. I went to a co-ed boarding school and we had a rule that boys couldn't go to girls dormitories, but girls could go to boys dormitories until curfew(as in, they had to be back to the girls dorm by eight). From what I understand, it's a pretty normal practice in boarding schools so Hogwarts wouldn't be an outlier. Personally the few times some girls secretly brought boys to our dorm it was uncomfortable as hell since those scrotes were unruly, loud and rude.

Alternative list of HP things trans ideology has taught me that I didn't know before trans people said it:
>"jews are goblins" is a given that everyone must agree with, becuase jews are in fact literal greedy ugly goblins and this was totally not made up by literal trans nazis
>a character can't be gay unless they're explicitly performing gay steretypes every scene they're in because being gay is a key personality trait
>it's racist to make up funny, cute or interesting names for all races, you must make exceptions for all non-white characters and treat them differently by giving them the boring names they deserve
>Having the unquestionably bad and evil villain be partly based on hitler somehow means everyone fighting against him is pro-nazi rather than anti-nazi
>Slaves of any kind existing in a fantasy setting means you are pro-slavery in real life
>Magical stairs that only exclude boys would also definitely exclude transwomen according to themselves
>Luna was the most perfect enby character to ever exist, until the actress sided with JKR and now she's one of the worst written characters in the books
>fantasy books can not portray anything problematic or unrealistic or they are badly written and support those bad things in real life
>celebrating Robbie Coltranes death publicly is normal and endorsed, because he showed support for JKR once
>Sending rape and death threats to women who are abuse victims is promoted as something good and brave to do if you're trans

You know what's funny is in the future when this has all passed there are going to be fantasy books written where the bad guys are literally based on the trans movement. There will be stories where the bad guys are an evil cult that says they cure children by mutilating them. Where the evil oppressors pretend to be the oppressed. Where the bad guys erase and ban all language to describe an oppressed minority group so they no longer have words to describe themselves. And just like how we look at Voldemort and see clear parallels to Hitler, we'll all see clear parallels to all the things the trans ideology did. That will be their only legacy.

i just found the book of admittance in the game and i'm fascinated by it, especially since the wiki states:
>the Book's sternness had a purpose: its track record in keeping Squibs out of Hogwarts was perfect. Non-magic children born to witches and wizards occasionally had some small, residual aura of magic about them due to their parents, but once their parents' magic had worn off them, it became clear that they would never have the ability to perform spells. The Quill's sensitivity, coupled with the Book's implacability, never made a mistake.
i'm so curious about what it's like to be a squib in a magical family. i think it would make a good story for a next game, like some acceptance movement for non-magical children. i always wonder which school they attend, since, even if they are non-magical, they should still be able to know about history of magic, muggle studies, herbology, care for magical creatures… there are many subjects they can study at hogwarts, even without the ability to use magic. they could also work as special messengers (the people who hand over the hogwarts letters and explain the wizarding world to muggleborn witches and wizards) or specifically work in muggle institutions that need to know about the existence of magic.

I can't decide which idea I like better, an opticians in Hogsmeade with hundreds of rolling glass eyes and floating glasses looking down on customers, or Dumbledore rocking up in a muggle Specsavers looking to get his eyes retested.

This doesn't make sense to me. We only meet a handful of students and it's all from Harry's Gryffindor perspective, it's his rival house and his best friend hated Slytherin from the get-go. It's natural that we don't meet that many kids from other houses than Harry's. It's a fantasy series aimed at kids. Isn't it like saying Hufflepuff isn't needed either since we barely meet any puffs, and the most prominent one we meet, Cedric Diggory, has his key trait being bravery which is the most typical gryffindor trait anyway?

That's what I was going to say.

I always knew that they would remake the movies. The og movies where made before all the books where written so it was hard to judge what information they should put in them. But I do love the two first HP movies so much they are so comfy. They have a very intriguing ams inviting atmosphere and I always yearn to step into the movies whenever I watch them. The stellar soundtrack and set design and color choice helps. I don't think a remake will be able to feel so magical.
Tbh I'm sureprised that they are not attempting to make it into an cartoon or anime. Harry Potter is popular in Asia and anime has become mainstream in the west so they could easily collab with some big anime studio.

Prediction, they will cast a biracial actor for Harry or Hermione. I don't think I would mind if Hermione was played by a black or mixed girl. I know there is a lot of discourse around it but I don't mind much. I just hope they keep her big curly hair and don't give up at like the third movie with Emma Watson.

I think it would be funny if Ben Barnes would be played by sirius since the fandom always casted him as young sirius. Maybe he is to old now tho, but i think he's still handsome.

JKR supervises almost all projects done with her IP so that it doesn't contradicts what she established about the lore and characters. I doubt she'd let HBO create OCs or transwash already established characters without agreeing to it first.

No. 287411

I highly suspect they are going to pander to trans people but tbh it would be so stupid if they do. TRA have already decided that Harry Potter is a modern Mein Kampf so they are not going to watch it anyway. Besides Harry Potter is big on an international scale so people from all over the world are going to watch this and there are countries where people aren't so familiar with trans politics so they are going to get confused by a trans or enby character. If they add one the character will probably be showed in the back and have a minor role, but that wont satisfy the few trans potterheads that are left because it's not proper ~representation~. It would be better to not add a trans character at all because there is no way they can win if they do

I think the series will probably be pandering in stupid ways too. It would be more interesting to see a show of either Harry's parents or Voldemort's time at Hogwarts, rather than rebooting the main series when the movies concluded just over 10 years ago.

Oh my god nonnie, thank you so much. This fic was an amazing and wholesome yet weirdly somber read! I really love the concept of it all and giving minor characters a backstory that explains "why" without changing how they are.

I'd prefer an anime too but I can't complain about this either. Maybe it won't match the atmosphere of the movies (and since I won't be watching it for the first time/as a child it obviously won't be as magical), but it won't have to cut out so much of the books. Everyone complained about that and hoped for a lengthy TV adaption so every detail would fit in. In fact everyone was hoping for a HBO series specifically, so I will tentatively get my hopes up.

I dont want this. Unless it's a different time period, there's no reason to reboot the movies when it's only been 11 years. No one can compare to the old cast, especially for Hagrid's role.

My absolute nightmare scenario for this is if they make it "edgier" by doing the typical shit like amping up sexual relations. I also don't want them to only hire the typical hot super model actors for constant eye candy for average characters, that's a massive pet peeve of mine. It makes sense for characters who are meant to be hot/beautiful like Fleur (although the movies really failed on that casting in particular) or maybe even Sirius who is supposed to look a bit like a rock star. I really do not want a foxy Molly Weasley played by a 28 year old, or for a roided up Voldemort to suddenly be built like he injects steroids directly into his blood steam on the daily.

But on the other hand I also really don't want them to go the winx remake route where the cast completely missed the mark on every level just so they could look "inclusive" by having "ugly" and chubby girls in the main cast.

10-15 years ago if you asked most HP fans on dumblr they'd have probably sacrificed their unborn firstborn children for an HBO remake that was kinda edgy and adult like Skins AKA prehistoric Coomphoria. I honestly don't hate the idea if it was for my area of fandom (marauders era kek) but JKR doesn't seem to care about those characters much. You have to admit the milk/drama/troon crying likely to come from it would be pretty funny

James Norton was in a Tragic Bad Boy role in Happy Valley (bong police drama) recently as well so he's perfect. Now all we need is a Remus and James to make our fantastic foursome complete.

I like him but it's better when they keep him true to his character. Even if they go through the route of woobiefying him a bit, I do hope to see all that bitterness. It also makes Harry's character and his decision to forgive Snape (and give that awful name to his kid) stand a lot more. Like, they both have a lot of similarities and I think even Harry and another character say it at some point but the huge difference between them is how Harry in the end was able to forgive and move on, while Snape isn't, and that, to me, is actually very realistic portrayal of a person who was bullied and is very messed up, I think the way he treats the kids is very consistent to this portrayal, he is stuck in the past but now he is in a position of power he didn't have before.. and you know what happens when you put the loser up there while giving him free rein. It also contrasts with the other teachers just how immature and young he is. I just didn't feel any of this in the movies, movie Snape looks more like a stern teacher, someone who will give you a bad grade because you are lazy and wasting his time, very different from the guy who broke Harry's potion on purpose after the occlumency lessons fiasco and insulted Hermione for no reason some time before that. I think changing Snape this much changed the other characters for the worse too, not even the marauders vs Snape felt as good and compelling as in the books. Also Draco & Snape too, didn't feel like Draco trusted Snape that much as he did in the books.

Also I just remembered the duelling club with Lockhart and I wish the movies made him as ridiculous as he was in the books, dropping his wand and all while trying to teach Harry a spell.
"Just do what I did, Harry."

We don't get to see anything good that James did so it is weird that Lily ended up marrying him basically right out of high school.

I don't think she was wrong. I think their friendship might've already been dissolving but he put the last nail on the coffin.
In the books she says she has been making excuses for him for years, and doesn't believe he is actually sorry because he calls every muggleborn 'mudblood', she is aware of the people he is associating with, of the things his friends have been doing.
There is a scene where he tells her he wants her to see the marauders are not "wonderful as everyone seems to think". I guess James is supposed to be a very charismatic and charming kind of guy + bullying not being taken seriously, maybe Lily didn't see how bad that was, maybe sometimes she thought it could be justified since Snape also put up a fight? And to be fair, I think he would attack them if he thought he might have the upper hand and as biased as Sirius sounds, maybe Snape was indeed really good with dark magic so young and that simply doesn't paint him as a victim.
Snape seems completely unable to tell her exactly what is his problem with the marauders. From his frustration with her saving him during that scene Harry sees, I guess he just doesn't want to be seen as weak. Can't really blame Lily when this guy is so difficult.

I agree with this. It's sort of the equivalent of your childhood best friend growing into a nazi, when you're part Jewish yourself. I think people ostracizing and bullying a person with death eater/nazi views probably wasn't seen as THAT bad by the onlookers. On the contrary James and co. who stood up against it became seen as heroic and brave for being against the dark arts.

I've personally had male classmates who were truly rude, bully-ish assholes, who did a 180 in maturity in the spam of the 3 years I knew them and they grew up to be genuinely nice at the end of it. It's honestly realistic growth for them to turn out decent once they've grown and matured a bit.

The storyline is pretty basic and I rolled my eyes quite a bit, but it's whatever and skippable at worst, the characters are all kids after all.

The gameplay is easy to understand, and the PvP introduces the "hard to master" type thing, if you want to grind through the ranks. The gacha feels pretty generous for a gacha, and altho there's quite some microtransactions already, it feels very F2P - many purchases are cosmetics related. There's so many cute ways you can dress up your character with the free items. There's even a small rhythm game portion (Dancing Club) and it's pretty alright!

Some complaints are:
- basic, kiddie storyline
- very wifi dependent - Hogwarts feels pretty lived in bc you see other players running around the castle, can take classes together, duel together, etc
- the files are big and my phone heats up quite a lot, though its kinda old-ish (samsung s9) so ymmv
- i want more song variety in the rhythm game - rn its all waltzes and tangos
- you cant actually brew potions, it's less like Cooking Mama and more like 'press X to doubt'. I was so so sad to find this out
- you cant do a ton of exploring yet - part of the gradual feature rollout, I hope. e.g cant buy stuff from George's shop, there's no Knockturn Alley, etc

They're introducing more features over time so the players can get used to them all instead of getting 50 things dumped at once, I'm really excited!! Gooooo Ravenclaw!

The first one is ok, the second one has way too much stuff going on and Grindelwald looks ridiculous so he ruins it all by himself.

The third one is more focused on one plot so it's easier to follow and care about what's going on and it has old men yaoi divorce.

how are we liking the Magic Awakens phone game so far?
My fav NPCs are Daniel bc he's useful and Cassandra bc she's right about most things. The Frey twins are fun but they're just a total gimmick right now.
My fav activities in the game are co-ops in the Forbidden Forest and the social club. I wish we could dance with all the npcs - dancing's just for fun so it wouldn't even interfere with the Robin/Kevin ship the devs are locked on. Also I really hope we get more music soon.
I wish the clothes weren't gender locked so I could buy my character some nice pants that actually cover her legs. The dresses are cute though!
One thing I learned that I wish they didn't hide - you can buy red keys for 150 orange gems each, but that option only pops up when you try to gacha roll without having a sufficient number of red keys. I could've gotten the Ron card skin by now if I knew that from the start…

Love playing it, though I’m worried that they might shut it down due to lack of players. I’m top 1% and that’s a bad sign, cus I know for sure I’m not a “good gamer”.

I love, love Cassandra but the best support cards now are Ron/Mcgon/Hermione.

Be careful about pulling though, since the new update they sneakily changed the gold key pulling system. Even if you have 0 in your inventory the button makes it seem like you have some - but it’ll pull from your orange gems automatically. Not a good gem->key conversion

Regardless of JKR's intention, many fans think the marauders era is the gayest part of the HP universe and they're right. Marauders fandom has been fujo paradise since livejournal was big and even way back around the time OOTP was released. Regulus/James is pretty new though, doesn't really come from anywhere people just like two "hot" (they're not hot) men (posh boys). In livejournal days the most popular Regulus pairing was Sirius/Regulus kek and I can also remember there being Remus/Regulus and the inevitable threesome fics.

Me too nonna. I do think regulus sound like an interesting character, but these people write him like a total softie that never wanted to be a death eater and solely did it because of his family pressuring him. They can't with some balance, it's always black or white, and that makes for a very boring story.
Anyway, I see regulus/james I instant nope out of the story.

No. 321459

I figured its the combo of a relatively unknown cast/generation of characters + the hogwarts lifestyle template they neatly fit into + characters that don't have much "faceclaims" and so fans can mentally photoshop their features into literally whatever
and/or, the war started earlier for that generation which inherently heightens any stakes and adds more opportunities for drama and characterization than peacetime - bonus points for many families getting weakened or wiped out in the first round of the war. more pickings to choose from

No. 321464

fellow lucius enjoyer??
agreed. a lot of the marauders fics are very back/white. i like older gen stuff but i'd rather read about the slytherin crew or the hogwarts professors. the characterisations in marauders stuff tend to be very simplistc because it's focused on the ship.
i don't get regulus/james. they enver even interact in canon. and tbh i don't get the james appeal. sirius is more interesting imo but most fics ignore his canon characterisation anyway
i find older gen stuff fascinating because there's shades of this ww1-style doomed generation you know? but it's hard to find good character studies.

Me too! Perfect casting!

I'm one of the movie Fleur Delacour haters lol
I just think she was the least pretty actress on set and having boys swoon over her looked… like a parody at best. Fleur was supposed to literally be otherwordly levels of pretty because she's half-veela. I feel a bit mean saying it but it's truly not coming from hate, the actress just happens to have the most unfeminine face of the cast so the casting in this one role didn't suit her at all. It's not an attack on her as a person or her acting skills.
I genuinely think they just casted Clémence Poésy because she's French and had done model work and people just think "model = most pretty" when in reality most models have "odd" features that make them stand out because that's more interesting in photos.

the only thing that makes it "realistic" is that a veela has magic powers to charm men so it makes sense that an "ugly" veela could make men act as if she was hot, because of the magic illusion.

Yeah, we need more silly hats and full wizard and witch glam robes in the TV-series. Hermione should wear a pretty witch robe at the yule ball too and not an ugly muggle dress.

No. 327284

The movies lost some of the magic after they ditched the robes. I know the movies were still massively successful but I really feel like it damaged their legacy a bit. Ain't no one cosplaying hogwarts students by wearing casual muggle clothes, it's always the robes.

I think overall the movies went the wrong direction of trying to make them appeal to more people by making it all LESS magic and more "relatable", instead of taking us further in and giving us more silly magic stuff. But in reality the silly and iconic magic stuff is what people love and remember. I would have loved if they kept the magic worlds fashion as its own cultural thing.

I actually think that's one thing people get wrong with JKR's work. She wrote the books like kid's books. I've seen the meme trends saying she gave people dumb stereotypical names, and I'm just here like… well duh, of course she did it's a whimsical kids book series??? People grew up and then expect them to be sophisticated adult books all of a sudden just because they're adutls now.

I would like if the new series takes place in the books original time, however i don't want it to be a 90s nostalgia bait. The main appeal of Harry Potter is the wizarding world so I don't want to see the characters fawn over muggle devices, just so the 90s kids watching it can feel nostalgic.

I just want the characters to wear casual clothes that people wore back in the 90s when they are in the muggle world, and not wear the "ideal" stereotypical 90s fashion like picrel. I also dont want to see the characters use smartphones and make references to social media when they are in the muggle world lol. When they have to use electronics it has to be electronics from the 90s, but they should not empathise on the branding or try to make it nostalgic by highlighting stuff like VHS players, CDs etc. and implying that that stuff was much better than the modern stuff. The muggleworld should look as average as possible, just with 90s stuff instead of modern stuff. Hogwarts is suppose to be the whimsical place in Harry Potter and if they try to make some whimsical 90s nostalgiabait in the Dursleys home then it defeats the whole purpose of Harry Potter.

I also do not want any pop culture references whatsoever. I don't want Harry or Hermione to mention Spice Girls. I don't want to see some random background muggleborn Hogwarts student walk around with a gameboy.
The books didn't make pop culture references because that's not what Harry Potter is about.

Hopefully there's going to be some visual distinction between the muggle and wizarding worlds, I don't mind if all the muggles wear boring beige everything if it emphasizes the flamboyance of multicolored embroidered wizard robes. As long as the muggle actors all have 90s hair and makeup, I don't care. I think it'd be nice to have a scene where someone tries to use their gameboy or set up their massive brick computer in Hogwarts and fails miserably, since that's something that readers have asked about pretty much since the books came out. But I agree with you about the pop culture references, because studios are so retarded they'll try to increase zoomer engagement by having a dance-off to Backstreet Boys between Voldemort and Harry instead of a final battle.

This is a big reason why I have never been in the Harry Potter fandom or befriended hardcore potterheads despite being a fan myself. Many fans gets really defensive/angry when you call it a children's book. I love Harry Potter because it's whimsical and I want to enjoy it for what it is. I love the quirky alliteration names. Its charming.
There is also those type of fans who constantly complain about the lore and that the books are badly written because the lore isnt presented like a game manual. I think many insecurepeople are ashamed of being fans of children's books so they either try to deny it or they nitpick and overanalyse everything so they can prove that their image of Harry Potter is better. People just needs to get over themselves and admit that they like something where they arent the targeted demographic lol its fine to acknowledge the faults but also dont look too deep into it and expect it to be like a book written for adults.

>Won't happen. They won't endanger their precious careers. They are both thankless cunts.
If there's one thing we know it's that the "social justice warriors" will live on. Remember how the tolerant people used to be the ones to say "I don't see color" to mean "I'm not a racist, I treat people like people" but the SJW decided that actually the phrase now means "I intentionally ignore your black/minory background because I'm a raging racist who erases people's identities". They'll switch on people to fit their narrative.
I think once trans ideology becomes synonymous with "supporting unscientific mutilation of children, mostly for an adult fetish reasons" people will label some central celebrity troon supporters as the New Evil Bigots. People will @ them on social media and make call out posts and videos etc
They'll either how to live with the title of child mutilation supporter, or they'll have to come around and speak against it. The internet doesn't forget.

I fully think Emma is a "true believer" who would change her mind if she was presented with all the evience. When a troon said he just waned to pee, she thought he meant it.She's like a tumblrina handmaiden who thinks she's got the full picture already but gets a rude awakening once reality hits her. Daniel on the other hand seems more like he's just performative and does what the bigger mass thinks is good, because he doesn't think much himself.

>Many fans gets really defensive/angry when you call it a children's book.
>I think many insecurepeople are ashamed of being fans of children's books so they either try to deny it or they nitpick and overanalyse everything so they can prove that their image of Harry Potter is better. People just needs to get over themselves and admit that they like something where they arent the targeted demographic lol its fine to acknowledge the faults but also dont look too deep into it and expect it to be like a book written for adults.
I know I'm a minority, but even as an older teen and adult I've always HATED that books targeted to me would force in sex and relationships at every opportunity. I have zero interest in other people's sex lives, I even find it gross and off-putting. Light romance is fine if it's not the focus, but I swear every adult book tries too hard to be adult by putting in as much sex, violence, drugs, abuse and shit as possible to not come off as "childish". I fucking cherish that Harry Potter is a kids book without his uncle being a raging alcoholic who's sexually abusing his aunt or some shit because that's "realistic". Why can't I as an adult just enjoy books about friendships, overcoming struggles and maturing?

I unironically like the Finnish covers, but I may be biased bc of childhood nostalgia. But what I absolutely adore about publishers here taking children's literature more seriously is the quality of the translation. They always hire actual translators and not just some rando who happens to know the language. The Finnish translator of HP made up so much terminology for the books and put real effort into it, they're perfect. The names she used are still "the true ones" to me. I know some peope whine about Finnish sounding "dumb" but then again, it's a children's book, do you expect Finnish children to understand English names based on a pun or rare word most ESL adults don't even know?

No. 327460

I'd love to hear some of the Finnish names nona! I'm one of the swedeanons, our names were 90% English, but a few names had some tweaks. For example:
>Fenrir Greyback is Fenrir Grårygg = literally "grey back".
>Tom Riddle is Tom Dolder = dolder roughly meaning "hidden one"
Making the full name anagram of Tom Marvolo Riddle ("I am lord voldemort") not work anymore, so they made his full name Tom Gus Mervolo Dolder and changed it to latin ("ego sum lord voldemort"). So his middle name is Gus here lmao
>Buckbeak the hippogriff is Vingfåle = vingfåle is roughly "winged horse" but using an uncommon word so it's not as literal.
>Kreacher the house elf is Krake = krake literally means "creature", usually in a pitiful sense.
(fun fact kraken, as in the giant mythical octopus, is literally just called "the creature" but other languages just assume it's a proper name. Makes it really funny to hear people say "THE kraken" because it literally means "the the creature" lol)

No. 327470

What I don't understand in the Swedish translation is why the titles mr and mrs aren't translated. Why aren't the Weasleys called herr och fru?

No. 327474

>What I don't understand in the Swedish translation is why the titles mr and mrs aren't translated. Why aren't the Weasleys called herr och fru?
This is my personal opinion of course, but we know the books are set in England, and we are culturally aware of using mr/mrs and it's commonly done this way in other works as well (and so is using madam/monsieur for a french setting, or writing out -san in a japanese setting). But when it comes to herr/fru we haven't actually used them here since… shit I don't know? 60s? Neither me nor my parents grew up with it at least.
Basically mr/mrs just adds regional flavour, while herr/fru would date the book at least 60 years back in time. Using no title at all would make the book lack a lot of nuance and charm. So keeping the original titles was the best option in this case I think.

What are some things that bother you about the HP universe? For me, it really confuses me that Hogwarts acknowledges Easter and has dedicated Easter holidays, and also all the adults are completely incompetent at dressing in muggle garb but the Weasley kids are described as wearing jeans and jumpers during the holidays at the Burrow.
My headcanon is that celebrating Easter started as a muggleborn acceptance thing, but hit the wizarding mainstream and Easter egg recipes are published seasonally in Witch Weekly (hence Molly sending the golden trio some). In the UK Easter is celebrated in a very secular way, I guess wizards do the same thing and just ignore the whole Jesus part. Or maybe Jesus was just a wizard, who knows. As for the clothes thing, maybe it's just meant to symbolize that the kids are hipper than the adults? Idk.

Same!!

i think the clothing thing was meant to show that the weasleys are a tolerant family who live close to muggles. and the kids are allowed to wear practical clothing while on holidays, otoh all working adult wizards are seen with robes. so maybe it's seen as a professional/casual clothign type of deal
we also don't know much about how purbloods live but it's likely they wear more traditional wizard clothing all the time. it's pretry clear from the books that the weasley are seen as way pro-muggle by most of wizarding society, it's even what stalled arthur's career. they don't necessarily reflect the average wizard.

I've always wondered how wizarding fashion changed throughout the years. The Yule Ball and Ron's hand-me-down situation was cool to think about, but Rowling didn't spend much time describing garment cuts or popular colors. I'm sure wizarding fashion isn't as static as the books may have made it out to be! It's just that for one, Harry is a guy and for another, he spends most of his time in a boarding school with required uniforms.

oh my god quit sperging abour fujos. one offhand mention of a m/m ship is set you people off. no one here is pushing sexual stuff.
i'm not much of a shipper personally but it's a fact that most fandoms focus on shipping and they always have.
it isn't a fujo exclusive thing either, historically the hp fandom has had major drama over hetero ships.
and i'd still rather hear about ships than about yourself and your assigned house. i guarantee your personality isn't that interesting.

i really wish we'd got more details yeah. we don't know much besides tidbits about whether wizards liked to wear trousers under robes or whatever.
my hc is that their fashion is fairly modest and conservative with very little skin showing for both sexes. and pureblood wizards are especially careful wrt grooming because they hold onto old fashioned aristocratic values about presenting according to your rank.
I'd imagine wizarding fashion moves slowly because wizards live much longer. And there's both a tendency to hold onto the grand old times and a will to differentiate themsleces from muggle. so i suppose their vlothing would mostly be reminiscent of victorian/edwardian fashions but with magical elements. colour changing fabric, magical jewellery, patterns and decorations with magucal motifs like stars and animals and shit. maybe incantations embroidered or written inside for protection.
i yhink themeatically it would maje sense for wozarding fashions to have veen stuck in the 17th century since taht is precisely when they split apart from muggles. iirc rhe statute of secrecy is from the mid 1600s. but nothing in the films or books matches 1600s fashions so i guess they dressed differently even before the muggle and magical worlds separated.

No. 327904

Fashion is a special sperg interest of mine so I would happily do any costume work for free just for a slight chance of meeting our based terven queen. My headcanons about fashion in the wizarding world are similar to some anons ITT, particularly >>327897 with the prevailing silhouettes leaning more victorian/edwardian a la Hogwarts Legacy with a more magical flair. AFAIK the last large loan from muggle to wizarding worlds was rail travel and to a smaller extent enchanted radios so it would make sense for it to plateau around the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This also sort of lines up with the art style of the Daily Prophet, with its charming Victorian typesetting. A hogwarts uniform in the style of Hogwarts Legacy is definitely on my to make list!

>wizarding fashion moves slowly because wizards live much longer
I also like to think that fast fashion like we have or any department store for clothing does not exist in the wizarding world as they all have to go to a tailor for any robes with intricate embroidery, durable fabric and etc… As any stains can just be magicked away. This also could explain why Ron wore hand-me-downs school robes along with the fact I doubt parents would buy exact fitting robes for children and would much rather buy one that's a bit bigger and the hems can be lowered as they grow.

No. 327917

Yesssss I love to think about how wizarding fashion works. It seems that most robes that aren't second hand are tailored (iirc Ron is also shopping at Madame Malkins during the Draco/Harry confrontation so it can be inferred that it's not terribly expensive to get that done) which is interesting. I bet a lot of people who buy their robes second hand alter them magically so they're fitted better, too. What do you think makes robes womens' dress robes vs mens' dress robes? The cuts? That same scene has Madame Malkin accidentally try to sell Hermione men's dress robes and like… Is it not all just vague flowy fabric?
I also find it funny that Luna & Xenophilius are framed as weird for wearing a yellow dress to a wedding, but the literal Minister for Magic wears a lime green bowler hat 24/7 and no one says shit about that being odd. But tbf the Lovegoods are weird in many other ways too.

>On the other hand seeing moving pictures wouldn't surprise a muggle born zoomer anymore because now it's just equivalent of seeing a gif online.
True but that’s on a screen, seeing moving pictures on printed paper would be pretty shocking.

my hypothesis is that they don't use elasticised fabrics. in the days before these you had to get shuff tailored or altered by a seamstress mich more frequently.
it also seems their society isn't industrialsed so there are probably too few wizards in britain to mass produce clothing. there seem to be about two or three tailor shops total.
their clothing is probably very durable since it's somewhat of an expense and they'd probably use spells to make the fabric extra string, better thermoregulation etc.
as for the cuts, even vague flowy fabric usually has different cuts for men and women. if you shop in the moid section even a plain ol t shirt might be too tight in the chest and hips and too big in the sleeves. truly unisex fashion is very rare because almsot all cuts account for differences in build between the sexes. it's also possible women's stuff come indifferent colours or maybe it's designed to accentuate the waist etc.

i bet their robes are magicked to help control temperature so you can just wear a pair of ribes over your bare legs at all times. that also means they wear a lot of long-sleeved floor lengjt stuff at all times. We've seen them wear capes in the summer.
they pribbly also have more elaborate stuff with a lot of buttons etc that muggles would find hard to get in/out of. since they have spells for that.

lamo i know right? i doubt any of the marauders are terf adjacent at all, they'd porbbably just make lad jokes about "blokes in a dress". but if any if them is terfy is sure as hell isn't lupin, the spineless follower

Maybe it's Sirius since he seems to be the gayest one. I doubt he'd react too kindly if some fujo started sperging about his genital preference

You don't need Zelda and Pokemon anymore when you got a real magic forest to explore and real magical creatures to take care of!
>She is the perfect gryffindor
Yes, she truly embodies the Gryffindor spirit. It also incredibly heartening just how many likes her tweets are getting.
>pushing sexual stuff is off-putting to many people
Agree, I wish shippers got their own thread because what appeals to many of us is the magical childhood aspect of HP, so it's an uneasy mix.
>in what ways do you nonas match your assigned house?
I got Ravenclaw when I last did the sorting test and it fits, I love learning and reading. For superficial reason, being in Gryffindor would be nice, because their common room is so damn cozy. Hufflepuff also seems cozy. No thanks to Slytherin, don't want to live without a sunlight view.
This is how she draws their robes. Not a fashion girlie kek. But that's fine, leave that to illustrators and costume designers. Has everyone seen her own illustrations? It's cool that she does have some drawing talent as well.

For all of you nonas talking about wizard clothes, link to JKRs words about it
>Day to day, however, even those who detest Muggles wear a version of Muggle clothing, which is undeniably practical compared with robes. Anti-Muggles will often attempt to demonstrate their superiority by adopting a deliberately flamboyant, out-of-date or dandyish style in public.
There are some fun details in there. I don't like that they seem to ditch wizard clothes for muggle clothes, unless they're aggressively anti-muggle "racists" that just makes me sad because I love old fashion clothes and don't it to be the evil option.

Her "no" tweet has over 300000 likes now. This TRA reaction was pretty funny. Love and understanding!
>A fringe movement calling itself Fresh Air Refreshes Totally (F.A.R.T.)* insists that Muggle trousers ‘stem the magical flow at source’ and insist on wearing robes in public, in spite of repeated warnings and fines
This is great, thanks for the link
It's lucky that Hogwarts has such high ceilings.

Also slytherin, I don't think I fit it too well but I'm the kind of person who's always been drawn to weird dark stuff and horror movies so it does make sense.

Speaking of houses and wizard fashion, do you think HP as influenced your own aesthetics in some way? As in clothes and home decoration? I love big cluttered gallery walls and I think all the portraits in Hogwarts influenced that.
