(#) janeaverage 2014-10-09And this is why I love you a little.
But seriously... Part of why I spent so much time in fandom was the lack of fleshing-out you've highlighted here. And on the one hand, we Muggles can be just this impervious to logic coughreligion&politicscough but on the other... There's just something MISSING, isn't there?
- A most interesting look at the subject and I think Hermione isn't aware enough to realize the real dangers that multi-spectral imaging satellites would pose; especially if the magicals don't know and/or understand them and can't ward against observation by them. I have to wonder just how much the various intelligence agencies do know; especially with muggleborns getting disgusted with the magical world and returning to the non-magical.
As always, an interesting read from you.
- Well, when it comes to Wizards versus Muggles, the magically gifted are superior, no two ways about it. They have magic, they live longer, they're tougher.
But in terms of friendship, being able to live a full life, being able to love ... everything that makes us human ... they're just the same.
That's my answer to the 'Wizards are superior, they should take over' question.
As far as the question Hermione posed that was entirely contained within the magical world - purebloods versus the rest - I don't think she'd ever get a good answer from the likes of Malfoy. It'd stump her if a pureblood did come up with a factual response, though. Did you have a story where Hermione was told the odds of having a magical baby versus a squib was proportional to the magical ancestry of the child?
Amusing - although sad - coda. Although that's why Rowling's magical world is the way it is, no doubt. Consistent with your latest batch of stories where Harry & Co. just abandon England entirely.
Nice to see something from you, thanks!
(#) Kairan1979 2014-10-11I like your story.
Hermione is right (though I'm surprised she forgot about Wolfsbane potion, invented somewhere in 1970s). Wizardling World is slowly destroying itself by the inability to keep up with the progress in the Muggle world. It's a question of time before they'll be exposed.
- Fantastic! On the other side it shows us just why so many purebloods fell into the trap of Voldemort. Think of the blow his pride had to have taken for Lucius Malfoy.
They join Voldemort in desperation and/or madness.
But like it was said, even if they had won and unleashed dementors werewolves and more onto the muggle world, what would have followed would have a bloodbath, only Voldemort with his horcuxes would have survived.
