The confrontation between Harry and co. and Draco Malfoy and the Slytherin Quidditch team in "The Chamber of Secrets". YOu thought you knew how it went? Think again.
- Best Harry ever!
Q: is this 'Dirty Harry -- the early years' ?
- If not, it could be: A Harry who takes the mickey out of the 'pureblood' children, without resorting to violence, screaming or harassment of the visual kind, -- just by using halftruth and leaving out needed information á la Dumbledore.
- If asked why he does it this way he just points to Dumbledore as a thriving example.
Anyways, thanks for sharing.
Author's responseNot quite sure what you mean with Dirty Harry, the early years. It's been a long time since I 've seen the movie - just look at how Clint Eastwood has aged since to get a visual idea of how long that is. And my memory isn't what it used to be either... so I don't remember much of that movie, other than he runs around with a Magnum (a Desert Eagle?) and shoots people instead of arresing him.
If that is what you have in mind, thatn no. My Harry, in this story, is a smart ass that talke Draco into making a fool of himself and a general neuance for other people Harry doesn't like. So yes, no violence, screaming or harrassment, but I don't know about half-truths, Harry just spins it all off the end of his tongue, or the top of his head, there's little to no truth in most of what he says, and some amature history and pseudo-psychology in the rest. No one should take him seriously - he certainly doesn't.
Draco, however, it too stupid to realize that, and does.
So I don't know if pointing a finger at Dumbledore would help anything, but no one is going to asl hi, anyway.
- This is the funniest story ever and a good way for Harry to get revenge on Malfoy by telling that flying brooms is so old school, I LOVE IT
Author's responseActually, Draco is old school, riding broom is a dangerous modern, muggle-bor idea. Which is why Draco does not want to be associated with it in any way.
