    i did a thing i have been wanting to do for like eleven years now

    It is Friday and/or a holiday where some of you are, so I am dropping this here for celebratory purposes even though it’s not a story. Listen! You will not regret it.

    Also, there’s a potential story in it: the unwritten tale of Harry and the short-lived Slytherin a cappella group. Which I would probably read if it ever got written. Do drop me a line if you write it (also accepting general HP musings, Cap2 musings, FF8 musings, odes to the greatness of minor characters, ‘road not taken’ AUs, descriptions of magical places, fairy tales — you know, my usual schtick).

    Also also, in honor of today’s completely non-HP related holiday, let me offer you a post-canon epic that winds its way into and out of the Quodpot World Cup — in a most spectacular fashion. Quodpot is not the point of the story. The point of the story seems to be to bite my nails and make me scream at things, also to give me a lot to think about with regard to Harry’s post-Hogwarts years, the relations between wizards and Muggles, and the general shadiness of Salazar Slytherin and Godric Gryffindor both. So I highly recommend it even for non-Quodpot purposes.

    But, quodpot being the most popular magical sport in the United States, it seems topically relevant.

    Pansy skidded into the common room, nearly knocking over the boys heading out. She didn’t think to excuse herself as she hurried past Karla and Elle, sitting in their usual nook in the common room, and whistled a few notes on her way. Elle’s eyes lit up as Karla quickly gathered their textbooks, and the girls followed Pansy up to her dormitory.  Anne looked up as the door swung open but waited until it was closed to speak.

    “You’re up to something, Parkinson. What is it?”

    "Remember how we never thought we’d get to perform?" Pansy drew out a piece of parchment and laid it on her bed with a flourish. The other girls clustered around.

    “Draco gave it to me,” she explained once they’d finished reading the words. “He wanted a chant for the next game, but I think we can do better than that. Don’t you, girls?”

    Anne’s grin grew to match Elle’s as Pansy hummed her way through the verses. “And we have full permission? This will be fun.” She went over to her desk to take out the pitch pipe as Karla cast a quick silencing spell on the room and Pansy handed out parts.

    “Karla, you take lead. Anne, do second alto. Elle and I will backup. I think this tune will work for a first try, then we’ll refine. Ready? Here we go…”

    OMG. This fandom is the best. It always delivers.

    Thor really must not like dwarves dang

    I mean like I know dwarves in Norse mythology were kinda assholes literally all of the time for no reason so I’m sure that dwarf had it coming, but really everyone in mythology was an kinda an asshole literally all of the time, we still say somethign when someone is CASUALLY BURNING TO DEATH IN THE MIDDLE OF SOMEONE ELSE’S FUNERAL

  9. Thor was standing by and consecrating it with Mjollnir, when a dwarf called Lit ran in front of his feet. Thor tripped him up and kicked him into the fire, and he was burned to death.

    I’m going to come out and say it: I don’t like Maura. There are so many great supporting characters in Tammy’s books, and I don’t understand why Maura’s getting her own book as opposed to, say, Thayet and the start of the Riders. She just doesn’t grow…

    I think my feelings on Maura are… I don’t necessarily like her, but I like that we have her. And it’s something I like about Tammy’s writing in general, we get our protagonists who are defying gender expectations, but then we get characters like Maura who ARE squeamish, ARE girly or silly or what have you. And they’re never presented as being worse women than the warriors, they’re just… women who are not warriors. There’s just so many KINDS of girls and women giving to us, and none of them are portrayed as “And this is the one you SHOULD be”, it’s “This one’s great! This one is also great! This one’s evil, but still great!” Like maybe we don’t really like Maura, but I’m sure there’s an 11 year old just like her who loves that she gets to help save the day.

  13. Thoughts on Wolf Speaker: Maura and magic-wielders

    devrosesinger:

    I’m going to come out and say it: I don’t like Maura. There are so many great supporting characters in Tammy’s books, and I don’t understand why Maura’s getting her own book as opposed to, say, Thayet and the start of the Riders. She just doesn’t grow on me. Perhaps it’s because Daine becomes so much more mature during this book (learning to accept stormwings, for example) but Maura seems so childish. Brave, yes, but childish. She doesn’t seem very complex, either. But maybe it’s just me.

    I did like the scene where Daine explained that people with the Gift are called different things based on what they do. I’d love further information on that! What makes someone a sorcerer as opposed to a mage?

    I agree that Maura alwasy came across as very childish and I didn’t like her much, but… She IS a child. A sheltered, noble child who if I recall, was mostly being raised by the servants. Not that there’s anythign wrong with disliking her and I TOTALLY agree that I’d love to see a book about Thayet and the Riders- hell, I just want more Thayet- but I feel like a book about MAura would be giving her a chance to grow up. We see a 10 year old little girl for a very small part of her childhood. I’m going to go on a little side tangent here and this is in no way against the OP or fytortall, but why are we so hard on fictional kids, especially little girls? Whenever we don’t like 10-13 year old characters, we call them childish or annoying. Of course they’re childish and annoying! They’re children, and the msot annoying age of children at that. My youngest brother is 11, he is SO childish and annoying. A childish, annoying 10-13 year old character is a well written one. The little adults we actually enjoy reading about are the exceptions in the real world. I mean I certainly prefer the abnormally mature characters to read about- Kel and many of her friends are prime examples, we meet them at 11-15 and watch them grow and mature, but most of them are given to us in palatable, relatively mature packages. And this makes sense! Knighthood is never implied to be for everyone, and it is proven to be a lifelong commitment. Only a particularly mature 11 year old would take it on. But every 11 year old isn’t ready to become a knight. When I was 11, I still played on a playground and thought boys were stupid and gross (well. I still stand by that.). I was an obnoxious brat, and so is Maura. If we can’t be kind to imaginary little girls, how are we treating the real ones? I’m not necessarily defending Maura specifically because it’s been so long since Wolfspeaker, I’m not sure I could do it well but like… In defense of all the little girls we hate reading about. Let’s cut them a little more slack.

    Was any of that mentioned in Alanna’s books maybe? I know they called Thom a sorceror. It always kind of seems like, at least in Tortall, sorcerers’ magic is a little more… esoteric? And big, always big. Like hedgewitches were low powered, very useful stuff, basic healing, charms, etc mages covered generally useful, but a little bit less common stuff, the more complicated healing that couldn’t be shoved in a balm, battle magic, identification spells, speaking spells, practical workings that covered more than a hedgewitch could handle, but then sorcerer’s were basically using magic for magic’s sake. Like Thom raising the dead, or crafting new spells jsut to see if they could, etc.

    Notes: 1

    I know we all like to make fun of Tyra for being a bit ridiculous literally all of the time and I am on board with this her ego can be out of hand but in addition to a talk show, a hit reality show, a decades spanning modelling career, a best selling novel (which does sound a bit terrible but shh, people bought the damn thing), however many other ventures, the woman has a Harvard business degree and sure, her name and her money went a long way toward getting that, but a three year business degree is not easy and a degree from Harvard is even less easy like… Her persona may be over the top but let’s not pretend this woman doesn’t know exactly what she’s doing. Real mad about what happened with Angelea and the aggressive coverup,  really questioning how involved she was in that decision, but at the end of the day Tyra’s earned a damn sight more respect than we tend to give her.
