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
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
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.
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. >people actually took years to rewrite the entire series to show how harry being a girl would change the entire story
That's really interesting - do you have any examples of such fics or what changes they made?

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:

the new game looks amazing! ig it's too late for predictions considering i just watched a long gameplay video but i'm definitely going to play it (can't lie, i'll probably pirate it asap but i'll buy it later when money isn't so tight). i was already sold when they showed me the decoration mechanics but also you get to collect magical animals????? trying not to be over the top about it but it looks cool and i'm very excited.

Do you guys think rat Peter would be able to get into the girls dorms or would he just slide off?
Say, if he slides off, would he be able to circumvent this by having a girl carry him up there? Or would the girl slide off with him?
are you genuinely retarded?>>265119
the marauders map was able to detect rat!peter was a person right?

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.
Honestly I just wanted to know what you guys think about it but I guess my post would get more answers if it had fujo shit in it.

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.https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9249261/1/To-the-Wind
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.
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.

My TRA friends/mutuals are raging about the hogwarts legacy game so hard right now. I hope this will finally lead to mass peaking, troons could not have picked a worse enemy: a beloved children's book author who stands up for female rights (somehow without being labelled a man-hating femnazi), has fuck-you-money and puts her money were her mouth is, opens a rape crisis centre, is one of the few celebs with a spine and refuses to back down on her views, is quite attractive, intelligent and well-spoken and is all around just wholesome.
>>270764>without being labelled a man-hating femnazi
Being called a terf
is the exact same thing nowadays.
File: 1674471307892.gif (839.44 KB, 498x286, harry-potter-dancing.gif)
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.>>270892>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

agreed, slytherin is what I'll be playing and their aesthetic is the most interesting. I hope the game lets us discover some spooky mysteries and dark magic

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.
File: 1674748948698.png (580.47 KB, 675x825, oh_boy__by_natello_dbx3gng-ful…)
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 just got Hogwarts Legacy. It is pricey as hell but I think it was worth my hard earned money. Back in the 2010's, I used to play Harry Potter RPGs like picrel on Habbo Hotel, sooo HL feels like a dream come true!
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.
Funny enough, one of the Warrior Cats authors was a TERF
/GC, like supporting JKR and all. These women-hating idiots really are braindead and don’t know what they’re talking about.
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… >>271963
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.
mom, she was before her time kek>>271954>she told me in private that JKR is antisemitic because of the goblins
Please if anyone says this tell them they are the antisemitic one for insisting classic goblin characters that have existed for literal centuries are in any way representing jews. Do they also think curious George is racist because it has a monkey in it?

>>273869>antisemitic goblins, supporting of slavery bc house elves, Cho Chang's racist name
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. >>273870
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.
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.

I'm seeing the same thing, a lot of woke millenials who used to be huge HP fans are clearly trying to convince themselves and police each other to not play the game. I bet most of them cave in and end up secretly playing it. I hope the game gets a fandom and starts a HP renaissance so all those annoying people will have their heads explode.

I don't game at all so I was never planning on buying it but the insane amount of seething is actually managing to surprise me a bit. They really outdid themselves with the malding this time huh?
Name of the Wind for example. Male fantasy writers just fucking write whatever and no one cares. It’s somewhat because retarded sjw children can’t read anything that’s above 6th grade reading level and they know they’d get shit on by scrotes in those other fandoms. >>273919>most of them cave in and end up secretly playing it
Oh absolutely. They admit just as much. The sales are insane, it’s not right wing WASP boomers and shitty imageboard users making up the majority of the sales.
many wokies absolutely DESPISE women that don't contort themselves into self-sacrificing pretzels for the sake of appearing 'nice'. It's absolutely misogyny - the kind that the terminally online will never acknowledge they perpetrate because she has the 'wrong' opinions, being a woman in white middle/upper middle class circles. There absolutely IS an orthodoxy other 'enlightened' women in my class will hold their peers to. It's the reason women in my office feel peer-pressured to post their very obvious pronouns in their email signatures - where I have seen exactly zero of my male colleagues do the same. My white female peers seem to believe functionally in two groups: white cismen (the ideological bad guy) and everyone else.
This is all anecdata of course.

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.
>>273878>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.>>273905>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 just watched the vid and it's his usual goofy nerd humor and making funny references to the other hp games he played. No random gender politics in the video, really nice.. I'm always afraid of wasting my time on any HP related video only to get a "fuck JKR" message or something similar by the end. 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. I think all the ones I'm subscribed are too woke to play it or smart enough that they know they shouldn't play it right now.

Did they add this last minute? Only makes me upset because it feels like a 'gotcha' at JKR when she never even said she hates trans people… She just acknowledges women's biology and how being a woman how shaped us differently from men.

i don't like my patronus but w/e
RT's not gonna play it? Oh man, did he make a statement or something? I don't keep up with streamers outside of youtube.
The Spiffin Brit might play it judging by his comment in the trailer vid, but I dunno if he's gonna do some retarded disclaimer. Men are such cowards, it's funny cus most they get is a slap on the wrist "apologize and don't do it again." And at worst "diSaPOiNtEd!!! uNfOlloEd!!!1!".
Yes! I happened to catch him say it on a recent stream because someone asked in chat if he was going to play it. After he said he wasn't, he went into a short "I don't approve of JK Rowling or HP as a series anymore" speech.
Kind of retarded how their audience is though. Someone also asked Ludwig once and he said he wouldn't play it, and also said "yeah… when it comes out I'm going to tweet out "fuck HP/JKR" and farm those sweet sweet likes" and his chat ate it up. Like you retards don't even get that he's obviously gaming all of you for some twitter likes despite his obvious tone that he's doing it specifically because he knows how to cater to his braindead audience kek. Absolute retards.
Thanks nona! I think the angry handmaidens I follow would consider that giving the troon-murder game too much attention so I think I'm safe lol
A lot of studies show you enjoy things MORE if you know plot spoilers so maybe it will bite them in the ass and make more people buy it.>>274176
I hate that they're cowards, but I'm sure they see their massive troon following and are afraid to lose their streaming jobs that pays their bills so I'm not too judgemental tbh. They have to either be a nobody or fuck-you rich to be able to pull it off without getting financially harmed.
So playing the game is murder and violence but spoiling it isn't?
How do you spoil the game if not by playing it
, how could you! You monster! jk ily
Sage for blogposting but I remember re-reading Half Blood Prince on the bus to school a few years after its release and a scrote smugly telling me that Dumbledore dies at the end. It was so satisfying to see his face fall when I told him I obviously already knew that and that he was years late. But it’s still so annoying that a random moid I had never spoken to tried to embarrass me like that publicly.
Anyways, hearing how they’re reverting back to their grade school spoiler tactics made me laugh. Truly pathetic kek. JKR stays winning.
Can’t wait to play Hogwarts Legacy though, hope it makes the haters seethe!
Yeah, it's childish as hell, kek. Spoilers don't usually bother me, in fact, they even make me more curious to know how and why THAT happened.
I'm very glad trannies are shooting themselves in the foot, I wish everyone collectively peaked from this, god.

They are spamming spoilers everywhere. Several subreddits like r/gaming (36m users) have banned all discussion of the game (their pinned post is sitting at zero upvotes). r/HobbyDrama had a containment thread but deleted it and now bans all discussion. Official discord channel is flooded with mad trannies posting spoilers and spam and Twitch streamers are getting harassed etc. Tumblr tag is literally nothing but seething trannies.
And all this before the game has even been properly released! Trannies are absolute lunatics and I pray that more normies now realize that. I've never seen this level of insanity and harassment stemming from any entertainment.

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? >>274445
I love these ridiculous names..>>274488
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.

Agreed on Dumbledore. In the books He was always in loud and flamboyant clothing and was often described what he was wearing in the parts he's in. FLim!dore is unstylish compared to the book!dore.

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:
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.
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.
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.

I used to watch his streams, his audience (at least on twitch) seems to have a lot of underage soft boy uWu type TiFs. One time someone subbed and their message was "I just came out as a trans man today" and he said something like "wow, I can't even imagine how hard that would be, congrats" or some sympathetic sentence, and the way he said that made it clear that he wasn't familiar with the topic.
I think he decided to appease troons because he knows which side his bread is buttered on AKA he's a cuck like other anons said.

What predictions has come true regarding the game and audience? I don't have the game yet and I haven't checked reviews of either.
>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.

Sorry for low quality phone pic of my tv but the art in this game is so sick. I can’t get anything done because in every corner there’s something interesting to look at. Truly beyond my expectations
That doesn't even add up>the goblins are jews according (only) to trans people>the goblins used the horn in 1612, so they're saying jews used the horn in 1612>the 1612 uprising mentioned was an anti-semitic uprising, meaning not-jews being against jews>not-jews did NOT use a horn in 1612, the horn is thus fully irrelevant to the 1612 uprising
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…
Yes, it made me unreasonably happy! I’m an artfag so I’ve been sperging hard over all of it.>>275496
And no, I didn’t. I’m honestly not super knowledgeable about history, but I went to Hebrew school for years and they don’t teach things like that. My guess is some twitter user saw that text and googled “Jews 1612” and were so proud of themselves to find a Wikipedia article to support the antisemitism thing. Like another anon showed, we get persecuted somewhere in the world every few years so it’s just a lucky coincidence imo.
>>275430>the goblins are jews according (only) to trans people
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. You'd think that the screeching communists of twitter would praise JK for portraying the symbols of capitalism in her world as inherently bad creatures but male troon feelings trump all kek
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.

Building on the earlier actor topic, do you have an actor/famous person you think would have been the perfect HP character?
Ignore their current age or acting skills if you want (like for example picking a dead singer in his young prime or something)

what are your thoughts concerning Ron?
imo, he was a bit neglected by jkr. while Hermione stood by herself his role (and little characterization) ended up overshadowed by his family (specially the twins).
he is a petty little bitch that at least once a book has a big fight with H&H over the dumbest shit. even if annoying, i kinda of understood why he was an envious asshole, and when he wasn't throwing a fit he was a pretty loyal friend.

Ron was my favorite character when I was a kid and I related to him the most, the movies really didn't do him good. Guess neither Hermione, she is a lot more interesting in the books. I really like the Weasleys even though I find them all pretty retarded most times, but whats up with all the Molly bashing in fanfics?
she's a matronly adult woman instead of a milf. that's reason enough for a lot of people to hate her.
and hot take but some of the hatred towards the weasley family paired in conjunction with love and devotion towards the malfoys seemed like veiled/subconscious classism to me.

the only piece of evidence is that a horn and the year. Not only that, the Fettmilch REbellion was AGAINST jews, meanwhile the Goblins (who are supposed to be jews according to wokeoids) are the ones doing the rebellion
and let's say hypothetically all of this was intentional. What the fuck is the message? "lol when there was a jewish revoult in real life, jews in Harry Potter also did a revoult", and they referenced cheese? Even if we accept this is true, what does this say? It says literally nothing. It'll be like if the Shinra Inc. in Final Fantasy lead a revoult that was similar to some obscure anti-Chinese revoult: the races aren't even the same, the similaries of theming is not there, and at best you can say that they used an extremly weird basis.

I'm at my office, still seething because I can't buy the first volume of HP without the giant 25TH ANNIVERSARY logo on the cover.
you're literally me, I've lost so much sleep rereading old fics. Unfortunately a lot of slytherin!harry fics are voldemort/harry which I used to tolerate as a teen, but as an adult I can't unsee the no nose thing. There is a drarry one but would that be your cup of tea?
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.
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

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. People make him way too soft but overdo Sirius' aggressiveness and jest.
lupin in hbp>I am too old, too poor, and too dangerous
lupin in dh>jkjk rainbow werewolf baby when
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.>snack
Kek. Perfect. I'll be using that from now on. Wish this ship was more popular.

I'm seeing less tranny seethe and more real
fandom on Twitter and even Tumblr, but that may be because I've blocked so many of the retards. Twitter is your best bet for fanart since it's where the nonwestern fans are.
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.

That's a 13 year old difference. Sure it's a big gap, but not super unreasonable. They would have been 23 and 36.
said. just because there are easier fixes for certain things (like regrowing broken bones) doesn't mean that there are absolutely no illnesses and disabilities in the magic world. additionally, sebastian says in a convo that ominis was born blind and no spell could reverse it, so yes, they did try to cure him. professor sharp walks with a limp btw.
Offtopic I know, but that book enraged me, and that ugly old man being crippled and suddenly crying in Jane's arms just made me even madder. He's just going to be a horrible person who tortured his wife in an attic for years and then falls in love with a 16 year old as a 50+ year old man, telling her a weird story that I think was about him fucking prostitutes in France; and then he's going to start sobbing and boo-hoo I love you Jane please don't leave me I can't see anymore. She should've just fucked her cousin, Sinjin.
No, I think it's more like the Jayfeather effect; he's blind but capable, and also mean. If you know you know.
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.
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.

I'm really impressed with the quality of this game. Just when I thought Hogwarts and Hogsmeade was all there is in the game, I just unlocked the whole ass world map that you can explore??? The amount of details put into the environment is really fucking amazing. You can tell the devs poured A LOT of love into it. It's only the start of the year but it's already becoming GOTY.
Just like with the goblin “controversy”, absolutely no one thought like this until JKR did a terfy thoughtcrime, now everything about Harry Potter is suddenly racist.
The white characters are named ridiculous made up shit like Draco and Snape and Dumbledore, but apparently “Cho Chang” not being a technically accurate enough name IRL according to terminally online retards is where we must draw the line.

I've been wasting all my free time on this game. It's very addictive, even if there's shitload of boring collectibles like every other openworld. And I don't know what difficulty level to stick to because easy is boring but I get wrecked on normal, especially by bosses. I'm impressed by how many random details there are, especially in Hogwarts there's always students doing something. Even if you can't interact with them, it's fun to watch.

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.
I've seen jily where it's FTM!James and MTF!Lily fucking kek, J/L has always been a terrible ship (JKR has terrible taste in pairings most of the time) so I guess some people cope extra hard. 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 like the idea of him but it's more fun when he's a loser.

Sage for blogpost. I just have nowhere else to speak so freely.
I'm just so over of the level of cope fucking everywhere. "HP isn't even good! It's mid! I never REALLY liked it" Shut the fuck up, you loved it. You know you did. Everyone did. I saw you at the fucking midnight premier party for book Deathly Hallows at Barnes and Noble.
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. It's pathetic.
Anyway. I'm having a blast with Legacy and I hope we get DLC. Quidditch is obvious and the groundwork for Triwizard Tournament is already laid out so perfectly.
Makes me laugh that trannies think their little tweets are being read by anyone else in the world. I keep seeing americans act confused about HP popularity outside of their backyard. “HP popular in China? In Thailand? Fuckin Kenya?”.

It’s not just a silly little tumblr girl phenomenon.>>277708>standing up for the rights of women in the present than some materialist legacy
Exactly! Even if she was the worlds shittiest writer, it doesn’t invalidates her humanitarian efforts and values. As we clearly see, literally-who retard junior columnists are the quickest to join a lynch mob for one single modicum of clout.
Troons are legit brain dead to think people would totally ignore a game that is everything fans dreamed of. They're so used of getting their own opinions repeated back to them that they forget the rest of the world don't think the same and won't bend to their wishes without some good reason.
And WB being WB, it was kinda obvious they would milk this game as much as they possibly can. Can't wait to see what they have in store.>>277708>there is no LGB without the T
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.

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??

i just finished the natty quest where you rescue highwing and i cried at the end when they return to hogwarts. the music, the scenery, it was all just so beautiful and reminded me so much of the magic of seeing a new hp movie at the theater for the first time. i feel like movies 3 and 4 really were peak hp hype, but also the end of innocence in hp what with how dark book 5 was and how the series ended. jkr very expertly progressed from a detective/mystery story with magic elements to a war time story.

The mental image of that is hilarious and now I wish that was in the game.
I just know when this game gets a sequel it's gonna to have like double the fucking puzzles but like some caveat where you only need to complete 60 out of 200 or something. The puzzles themselves aren't hard at all they're just distracting and low-key an eyesore both in-game and on the minimap. Like I wanna walk ten feet without seeing Merlin's fucked up little artifacts everywhere.

Oh yeah, you're probably right, I think I remember at least one case now, posted in a thread somewhere either in ot or snow. Still, 2 cases of females being unhinged in the middle of a sea of males doing it. And I'm sure they all have misogyny in common as the reason for these attacks.
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. They completely missed the messages the book tried to convey and vengeance was definitely not one of them, this is JKR, not Stephen King (who actually has a book about a school shooter and is a doormat)
>>278981> And I'm sure they all have misogyny in common as the reason for these attacks.
Yeah, that's why I mentioned they're both TIFs, because it's actually relevant and a good way to show that they're exceptions and why they're exceptions.
>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).

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.
God the thread makes me want to a log. Men in dresses whining about "misandry"

Its genuinely bizarre(and kinda frightening) that they've twisted HP a magical light hearted series about overcoming adversity into some right wing borderline fascist text on par with Starship troopers
One of these days, saying a book is "white" is not gonna be an insult and I cant wait for this ridiculous weapon to be taken away from these people. There is nothing wrong with having mostly white fairytales. Non of that bullshit helps "poc
" in any way.
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 thought his trait was being selfless, which IS a hufflepuff trait. They are loyal and selfless characters.
I think JKR should have separated more characters into different houses, because it does feel lazy all the 'good guys' were in Gryffindor and all the 'bad ones' were in Slytherin.

Sebastian and Ominis has the best writing/arc but I got so fucking tired of those samey ugly dungeons during their quest line. Poppy has the most fun variety quests. Natty is good but weirdly written, I expected the cop lady to be corrupt/working with the poachers but it didn't happen. Main quest was annoying as hell except for the third and fourth trials.
Hopefully the sequel will have better writing overall.
Is this for HL!? Omg nonnie

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. And if they don't want to do that I'm still sureprised that they haven't attempted to make a 3d Harey Potter cartoon

Here's a fic focusing on Petunia's perspective on her sister getting to become a witch and not her. It also a AU where she meets a monster in the woods which I won't spoiler and focuses on magical beasts, being the less loved daughter and older sister to a more talented sister which is more relatable regarding siblings then the both of them making up and being bffs because their sisters as some fix-it fics do
and a magical OC love interest instead of Vernon. I feel like this is the most believable Petunia fic where her personality doesn't get a complete overhaul into a super nice, done nothing wrong and everyone likes me fics. My explaination does not give the story justice, so please read the first chapter before dropping it.

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.>>287340
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. >>287365
I really hope they wont pander to the troons
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>>287399>they will cast a biracial actor for Harry or Hermione
tbh I'm open to this>Ben Barnes would be played by sirius
ok Im really obsessed with this now. I hope this is the case
I wish I could be excited for this since the movies gloss over so much of the books but my expectations are on the floor tbh. I agree with >>287332
that they won't be able to top the atmosphere of the og movies, the new cast won't compare to the originals either. 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. Just let it rest kek
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 could really sympathize with both Petunia and Lily's perspectives after reading this and something about their relationship as sisters is so sweet to read. Again, thank you!!! Spent my whole day binging and still have a bit to go.
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.
Arent they known for violence and soft core porn like GOT??
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>>287344
I disagree. Imagine Paul Dano and James Norton reuniting on screen as Remus and Sirius and having to act out whatever gay bait was in the script
I ain't saying no for gay baiting but all I can see with that pic of yours is Peter planting the seeds of doubt into Sirius when they talk about Remus. Then this >>287340
is the face of all according to keikaku once Remus and Sirius start pointing fingers at each other. Dano was made to bring Voldemort back.

"Sexy Peter Pettigrew" isn't something I'd have ever dreamed up on my own but hey, I'll take it if we get Dano. 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. As long as gay bait is happening I wanna suggest Matthew Macfadyen as someone even if he's a bit older than the other two. Any Succession actor would be fun though

JK's comment sounds promising.
The most important thing to me is that they take the time to explore the intricate worldbuilding and fun little details, because that aspect of the series was what attracted me to the books as a kid and it's woefully missing in the movies imo.
Other than that, I'm hoping for:>a more fiery outgoing Ginny>a less Mary Sue-ish Hermione>more Hogwarts daily life and classes>characters actually wearing robes and wizard hats all the time and many being clueless about muggle fashion>Peeves>Ron playing a bigger role and having best friend chemistry with Harry>actual colors instead of dreary blue and green light filters on everything

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."
"What? Drop my wand?" Kek.

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.

If the HBO show was going to be released exactly how you wanted it but on the one condition an additional well known character (or more than one character) other than Dumbledore would be shown as gay or bi, who would you pick and why?
Probably Remus or Sirius like your pic. It wouldn't change much and the Marauder shippers would be happy.
Alternatively Albus Severus or Scorpio if the show goes into Cursed Child.

oh nonas I made it late to the Howarts Legacy convo but I am living my childhood dream and I am beyond ecstatic, the game is amazing. I was always sorted in Slytherin which I used to hate but this game made me have a deep appreciation for them. With that said I just wish we could have made deeper connections with the companions, I would kill for Poppy and Sebastian and Ominis are my boys. I wish we could have been another golden trio.

Yes. That was posted in the Pride thread but JKR sperging belongs here too.

"Her door clicks open and nearly clips her in the face. It could be a sudden draft, but Amy is doubtful. Her fist clenches shut around the marble. It is pretty. She could look at it for hours, the way it catches the light. It’s almost like a sweet. Want curls up in her chest like a cat. She thinks she’ll keep it. A gift from the big grey orphanage, just to her.
“That’s mine,” comes a thin, cold voice, and she sees the boy across the hall for the first time. His room is directly across from hers. He is pretty, she thinks, like a drawing from a book. The lines of his face are smooth and pale. His hair is dark and neatly parted. He holds himself very rigidly, like a miniature soldier or a wind-up toy. “That’s mine,” he repeats, sharply.

Petunia drips magic the way she drips anger. Sparingly. Subtly. Nothing overt or obnoxious. Nothing that attracts the stares of other children or the suspicion of adults. Just things that help her.

Tea that is slightly too hot or too cold settles to the perfect temperature. Magic maintains the realm of order she has built around herself.

I had to explain to two of my friends IRL that she isn't some hateful bigot. I showed them her gender essay and they got really confused because there was literally nothing hateful in there. They had believed the lies TRAs spread.
They keep lying and saying she's anti-gay when she's been a really big supporter of gay rights all along as well. I've been meaning to show woke people her essay without saying that's what it is beforehand (we know none of them have actually read it) and only revealing it's hers afterwards, and that it's literally THE text trans people call her Hitler over. And if they agreed with anything in her text, or even acknowledge that same-sex rights are important then they're literally equally as terf
as JKR because that's all she's been saying.
luckily most people who aren't already caught up in online TRA bullshit hear about JKR being a bigot/terf
/conservative/etc and they actually go and read her essays or tweets because they don't want to believe the accusations. feminists couldn't have created a better normie-peaking machine than the JKR hate brigade if we tried.

I started playing Magic Awakening and so far I like it! The art style is super cute, the in-game lore is post-canon compliant and it feels true to the spirit of the books. (I love going to Weasley's Whizzes and seeing George there.) There's a lot of canon scene cameos in the cards we duel with. 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!

What the fuck does this mean, Chinese reading nonnies please
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

can any sisters explain the cult following for the marauders? they were such a small part of the series so it shocks me that current fandom is largely about them.
Also whats with the Regulus obsession and pairing him with James? I can't recall them ever interacting, is this a fairly new thing? i don't hate it but i just want to know where it's coming from.
File: 1694749650937.jpeg (243.23 KB, 1242x702, helpfulchart.jpeg)
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.
as far as i can tell it's for shipping reasons mostly, also they're supoosed to be these briliant rich handsome people who nonetheless all died young and had tragic stories rife with betrayal and drama.
tbh i like the adult characters over the kids but i'm more interested in the baddies

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.
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
>>321450fellow 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.

I just ordered some official butter beer chocolate and I'm excited to try it! Jellies too. Has anyone else tried them?
It's very good! It's tasty milk chocolate with a filling that has a warm taste kind of like toffee, almost a trace of alcohol, but there is none in it.
The jelly beans are well, just jelly beans. I didn't want to waste money on the ones with gross flavours. I wouldn't buy those again but I can recommend the butterbeer choc!
