True & Honest Fan
My 8 year old trans child was heartbroken when I told xim about this.
It takes a special kind of person to be this self centered to the point where they openly say "I won't like you if you like Harry Potter and JK Rowling"
Though JK deserves this, the fans piss me off way more.
This. The most beloved author of our generation? In a pig's arse she is. She's an overrated hack whose writing is two steps above Stephanie Meyer at the most and who never met an adverb she didn't like.
A good way to make Harry Potter enthusiasts ree is to tell them that J. K. Rowling stole the idea of an orphaned bespectacled teenage wizard whose parents died in mysterious circumstances and went to magic school from Neil Gaiman's "The Books of Magic."
my favorite thing about the harry potter books is how wizards never helped to prevent stuff like the holocaust or the massive kampuchean famines because then muggles would ask them for even more favors.
jk rowling constructs a narrative that masterfully interweaves racist undertones with barely contained disdain for poor people in her wonderous series about a trust fund baby attending a boarding school for witchcraft and wizardy
And also this. If the Prime Minister is clued in to the world of magic, and always has been, why didn't we send frickin dragons with electromancers riding them to decimate the Luftwaffe? And how come Hitler didn't try to teleport saboteurs behind Soviet lines? Surely at least one Nazi wizard would have volunteered.
I know where the bodies are buried, Rowling.
You forgot the Mcguffin Whorecruxes.And why didnt everyone let the muggle army handle Voldemort? You could tell them that theres an evil wizard that wants to kill muggles, or you could tell them that he’s a violent white supremacist, but either way he and his death eaters won’t survive a carpet bombing.
