- Hmm. My cat once confused the hell out of a badger by jumping over it repeatedly. Now why does this come to mind right now?=)
I do appreciate Hermione getting annoyed by the innate magical daftness. It happens too rarely. Why not turn it around? Obliviators also implant false memories, don't they? Have Hermione spread the idea to obliviate boring classes, replacing the memories with more exciting things. Wouldn't that be great for OWL-preparations? Keep it up. I'm right here (unless the ISP dies. Again.) Thanks
- I have to agree that your take on how Purebloods deal wiht pain et al. makes a lot of sense of canon; without a firm, and generally painful, learning of cause and effect, there can be no learning or growth. I have to love Hermione's recognition of this and her annoyance with the 'Puffs over it. This idiot makes a great contrast to Neville who is learning and growing because he refuses to lose the painful memories.
(#) Staryfury0901 2018-06-22Please to change LAMBS to MORONS. For that is all the magical world in Britain is fast becoming. They refuse to learn from their mistakes. Instead having them removed or suppressed. Now this could be confined to the purebloods of magical Britain or it could be world wide. It might be better if Harry and Hermione were to leave the morns behind to seek schooling in another country. Or maybe it'd better for Harry to learn to obliviate people. That way he could remove the painful memories of the last thirty or so years. If he got good enough at it maybe he could completely obliviate Voldemort while he was still in his homunculus form. We're talking total erasure to the point he remembers nothing about his past life. Of course to truly escape the first Dark Lord, meaning APWBD, he'd have to obliviate him of all knowledge of the Potter ever existing. But that would leave the problem of the ol' brainless bearded wonder blunder having other people know who would in turn do whatever it took to restore the old fraud's memory. Then he'd do whatever it took to get his weapon back under his control. FACE IT PEOPLE! DUMBLEDORE IS A DARK LORD MASQUERADING AS THE LEADER OF THE LIGHT! His blind stupidity about not hurting murderers, rapists, arsonists and terrorists has gotten too many innocent witches and wizards killed! Ask yourself this. How many Order members died because he refused to allow them to fight back to win? Then look at all the other witches and wizards in magical Britain who were murdered because he did nothing. Now either Snape isn't bringing anything useful to the Order or he's bringing it too late or Fumbles just isn't acting on it. Anyway you look at it the Order might as well not exist. The ministry itself is even more useless. So why should Harry stick around risking his life and the end of his family line for them?
