Question, not a confession: do you take confessions about the Original Order members, or not because there aren't photos of them? I didn't see any in the tags and didn't want to waste your time or mine if you didn't. Thanks. :)

oh absolutely! I take confessions about anything. If there aren’t proper film photos I just use whatever I want lol, photos of the actors who play them, simply harry potter related things, just whatever. The graphic isn’t nearly as important as the confession, they just make them aesthetically pleasing. =3

I know all about Snape, and he wasn’t about to put on a turban.

J.K. Rowling; Why did you make Quirrell the bad guy instead of Snape?

massive face palm xDD

  • queerlittlemermaid said: How is snape’s story different? I am genuinely curious, I haven’t read the books in a while.

in the films he’s white knighted, played out to be a good guy tragic victim of unrequited love. He’s stripped of all his complexities and the things that make him a great character. He’s reduced to this tragic victim and we’re all made to feel sorry for him (and hate the Potters because their story is cut completely). In the film you only get pieces of his story, they make you think he is a death eater for the sole purpose of spying for dumbledore. (he really joined because he wanted to and only stopped because it was the price to pay to protect Lily) they make you think he was not at fault with james and lily (he fought james as much as james fought him, and lily stopped their friendship when he called her a mudblood. both conveniently left out of the movie so you’d sympathize with him more and dislike the others) and they make you think that, despite his seemingly cruelness, he actually cares for his students (hell to no, he never tried to protect them when Lupin went werewolf and he was an outright bully to many of them simply because he could be. he abused his power as a teacher and guardian and they show none of his bad qualities at all)

Snape in the films is a completely different person and if you’re someone whos read the books, try talking to someone whos only seen the films and you’ll get it.

  • katierhae said: Any thoughts on her producer status on DH parts 1 and 2? I know that doesn’t necessarily mean she had any writing power, but it does indicate a pretty high level of support.

Even if it did give her writing power, it was way too late then Dx but with producers it depends on the contract. MAINLY producers are in charge of funding (or finding funding) and then are responsible for keeping the production within the budget and time line that they acquire. They deal with the more practical aspects than the creative, though with some films (harry potter included) they have to be consulted about changes and things and if they say no then it doesnt happen. If they want something and the rest of the crew doesnt, guess what, it happens. Because they control the money. Other producers or newer ones might matter if they were constantly changing but David Hayman was producer from day one, and I think Jo’s role as such was simply her helping out with funding so the movies could be the best possible for her fans. She supports us and I think the support was more geared toward us than the actual films. It really begs the question of why didn’t she get in as producer earlier, if she was supportive.

is true that they will make another movie? type that would continue the story?

no, I’m not aware of the rumours flying about right now but they are most certainly not making any more harry potter movies.

there IS going to be a stage play ‘prequel’ about harrys years before hogwarts

and the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movies are going to be a trilogy but have nothing to do with the story we already know.

do you think jk liked the movies?

honestly, not at all lol

I think she liked the first two because she was involved and chris kept to her story, and I think she genuinely loves the cast, but I dont think she was very fond of the films after CoS.

Its in the way she sets her mouth, how her responses to questions about the films seem robotic, like yes I have to like them its a great thing theyre doing for me.

I mean, she turned them over fully admitting that the movies had to be different and things would need to change and she was fine with that, she only had two requests; 1. british actors only 2. stay true to my story and characters.

and they threw 2 out the window asap, characters were compromised, points of view were forced and in several cases the movies tell a completely different story than when you read it. (i.e. snape) 

And if nothing else, I am completely convinced by the fact that she wrote the Fantastic Beasts screenplays herself, instead of entrusting the information to WB and letting them do it, like with harry potter.
