And I really hadn’t bothered to go out and find any. The book’ll be out soon enough and in the interim if I want to think about Harry Potter I could go back and reread the books so I could remember what details are canon versus fanfic… Or I could read fanfic, there’s been plenty of lovely writing by reliable authors lately.
Saw the movie last weekend, though. The credits were rolling and K turned to me and said “what do you think?” and I said, fervently, “That’s totally the wrong font for that background!” I also thought the movie is otherwise visually beautiful, but would be hard to follow if you hadn’t read the books. And found myself musing about plot simplifications to keep the movie short – did their decisions about what to cut reflect any knowledge about how the series will end?
