Hello, and welcome to the communal drabble page for the members of "R.U.I.N.S: Can't Stand Deathly Hallows"!

R.U.I.N.S. stands for "Random, Utterly Inconsistent, Nonsensical Sham" and is the name we've given a forum on wherein fans can discuss their issues with the final novel of the Harry Potter series. It's technically a fictionalley "Can't Stand" forum, where dissenting views - posts in favour of Deathly Hallows - should not be lodged. However the level of debate is often quite high as we furiously argue over which is the absolute worst of the many errors proliferating the ultimate tome of the series ...

If there's one good thing about Deathly Hallows - and there may, indeed, be only one good thing about Deathly Hallows - it's that the book lends itself marvellously to parody. Members of R.U.I.N.S. have written drabbles based on the plot (and plot holes) of the seventh Harry Potter book and have placed them here for your enjoyment ... and edification. If you're not already an anti-fan of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" we hope these short stories might persuade you to consider the reasons why this book proved to be the low point of the Harry Potter series and fell far, far short of providing a satisfactory resolution to Harry's seven-year journey.

If you'd like to examine our analysis of Deathly Hallows in more detail please pop over to the forum and take a look. Maybe set up an account and make a post or two. Tell us about another error in Deathly Hallows! Or get in touch with your inner parody author, dive in and write an anti-DH drabble! It's great fun! J. K. Rowling's given us a gold mine of sub-par plots to plunder!

To avoid confusion, you can find the current (open) thread at our homepage link.

Plot Puppet reviews
Why was the Horcrux still destroyed if Harry didn't die? Why did Grindelwald stealing the Elder Wand make him its master, but Voldemort stealing it didn't count? Here is an attempt to make sense out of the madness. This is how the ending should have gone.
