Bursts onto the stage* Ciao, lovelies! I am the awesome Littwink! *looks around eagerly at the empty stage*
So, Littwink here. I'm not usually a writer, but if I ever write a story, do anything to gain someone's attention, or if anyone stumbles on my page, this introduction is here! I'd like to say that I'm a connoisseur of FanFictions, but my taste is subjective to what I know of course!
My taste lies in:
Hikaru no Go
Detective Conan/Magic Kaito
Final Fantasy 7
Rise of the Guardians
... And everything in between! (Gotta love Crossovers!)
So, if there's ever a demand for a better intro, or if I ever get enough followers for the need of a better intro, I'll, like, totally put a lot more effort into my profile page!
Ave atque vale, fellow fandom lovers!
An amazing explaination of why a Dark!Harry is so popular by "Tonks-is-cool"— (Hasn't been active since 2013 though.):
"I adore JKR's creation, the whole idea of the Potterverse existing parallel to our own Muggle world, just a stone’s throw away and her ingenious interweaving of age old myths and fairy tales with a classical, yet modern hero tale. The way she planned and build up and connected the seven book series as a story circle is incredible, all those layers, hints, mirroring chapters: stunning. A true epic work of literature.
However, you will notice in my writing that I have read a lot of AU and Grey! or Dark! Harry (or more or less "greyish" Hermione) stories to compensate for my disappointment and frustration with certain aspects of canon ;-) and I even discovered some great stories that deal with what could happen differently during or after DH and I enjoyed them... thanks to the creative fanfic writers!
"... I know this not terribly original, and that many other fantastic Grey! or Dark!HP fanfic authors wrote or write about this theme too in the past decade. If you are interested in this genre, please read The Black Heir and by all means Out of the Night for example, or Right of Caste, Death of Today, Butterfly, A Life of Lies, The other End of Time, and of course most of Athey's work (HP and the Decent into Darkness, Breeding Darkness, and others) delves deeply into these aspects of the Wizarding world too, to name only a few examples. More info see the list further below.
I reckon it is just an aspect of canon HP, a theme that bothers me as it does bother many other adult people (who have read the books a couple of times, thought a lot about the background, and who have knowledge of Muggle history, economics, politics and so on).
In HP canon, it is never properly explained why there is such a state of very different magic, opinions and attitudes in the wizarding world. It just is. There are apparently the good and the bad guys, and of course the good guys win at the end of book 7. Yeah, yeah, well, the HP books were published first as children's books.
But we, the adult readers, we can wonder and speculate. What is considered Dark magic? Why is it forbidden? Was it always forbidden? Obviously not. What is Light magic, and what Neutral magic?
Why is there oppression of certain types of wizards, their traditions and magic? Why is there a civil war brewing in the British wizarding world since many, many decades or maybe centuries? Is it the same on the continent, or not? And elsewhere in the world?
This smouldering conflict in the British wizarding community is not only about the need for revenge, or to prove himself or the delusions of grandeur of one lonely, abused, angry, cynical, bitter orphan. If Tom Riddle and later Lord Voldemort gathered such huge support (from large numbers of wizards, but also many dark beings, like Werewolves, Vampires, Dementors according to what Sirius says in OotP) during his first rise to power between 1970 until 1981 the question pops up: Why?
If he was 'just' some insane terrorist with a small circle of followers (*), why did so many people and beings support and follow Voldemort? Canon supplies almost no answers, but one can speculate, so I and many others turn to Darkish fanfics.
Why do people not only like the Blacks or Malfoys think so negatively about Muggle-borns and half-bloods? Why this apparent obsession of certain parts of the Wizarding world with pur-sang, pure blood? Why did Salazar Slytherin and the other founders quarrel about the Muggle-borns a thousand years ago?
[In My Humble Opinion] Slytherin and all other wizards who were or are wary of Muggle-borns are not "evil", but have valid reasons.
If someone doesn't believe that Muggles are cruel and very dangerous, they have slept through out History class and never read or watched world or local news.
The times of the Inquisition and Witch Hunts were not something funny at all!
In writing my various stories, (already published like RDA and MTMTE and one other I am working on, as of yet unpublished) I have explored / or I will explore some of these ideas too. In general, that Muggles are not so stupid and weak as many wizards believe, but ingenious and dangerous, that they could pose a severe threat to the magical community. Wizards must take care to adhere to the Statute of Secrecy if they do not want to risk exposure.
This is one thing I dislike immensely in HBP and DH, especially the HP films 6 and 7.1, like that dramatic scene in London, DEs flying towards Trafalgar square in broad daylight, on the Millennium bridge or that burnt trailer park.
How can LV and his people, the canon dark side, be so ignorant and arrogant as to believe that the Muggles (police, secret service, military command) will not take notice of what is going on? The Prime Minister knows of Magic, he knows that these strange occurrences and casualties are not nature disasters or "normal" Muggle terrorist attacks.
From the background of LV's character I have great trouble to understand why JKR wrote it in this manner at all. Yes, LV is a powerful wizard, he can very easily kidnap, torture or kill a single Muggle civilian.
But, this same person, the young Tom Riddle, grew up in a Muggle orphanage in London amidst the second World War. London was bombed during the Blitz. OK, the upper year student Tom Riddle did not directly see that, (most fanfic authors who write about this forget to check the exact dates of the attacks in relation to the Hogwart's year). But still, when TMR returned to the orphanage during the next summer, he would have seen the damage in the country, in London and heard about the German attacks by the other children at the orphanage. In summer 1945 there were the atomic bombs detonated in Japan to end the second Wold War. That was world wide news, how can wizards have completely ignored this? Even if only a few half-bloods and Muggle-borns read Muggle newspapers or heard such news on the radio, would they not have talked about it at work, in pubs, so that other people living completely inside the wizarding community heard at least a rumour?
After WWII began the Cold War, and then the Korea War, Cuba crisis, Berlin conflict, and not to forget Vietnam, and many many armed conflicts elsewhere, like in Africa or Afghanistan and so on. During the time LV was missing, from 1981 to 1991 and 1992 to 1994, he was apparently hiding as a spirit or parasite in the Balkan area, in Albania according to HP canon. Ok. What went on in the area of former Yugoslavia during the early nineteen nineties? The Balkan War. Lots of damage and many people killed (roughly 100.000) or displaced. British troops were involved in the UN missions, so there was a lot of news coverage in Britain, as in all of Europe.
So, in my mind, it is difficult to believe that not at least some news of all these wars, of the possible destructive power of modern Muggle weapons reached the wizarding world in general and LV in particular. Apparently not.
The best story I have read up till now about what might happen if things go pear shaped in the relation between the Muggle and the Wizarding world is the epic, long story 'Becoming' [by SensiblyTainted, also on this website]; things are enormously complicated in this fic because of a body/soul switch between LV and HP in the atrium of the MOM, end of OotP. Close second is a relatively new story by Athey, Again and Again; very unique, interesting story."
"The universe for Harry Potter is about the richest there is in FanFiction because the characters are open to so many interpretations based on the inconsistencies in the books. Dumbledore seems so interested in Harry, yet woefully neglects him while he's at the Dursleys, then acts surprised to discover the Dursleys are abusive. He claims he's interested in the safety of the students and yet repeatedly ignores signs that something very dangerous is running through his school every year. Snape is clearly incompetent as a teacher, obviously dislikes Harry, yet repeatedly saves his life. Friends are transient with even his "best" friends at times abandoning him. Harry is clearly very wealthy, yet never once thinks to use that money to his advantage (i.e., buy the school new brooms for the First Years to practice with; getting a new wardrobe of decently fitting clothes; hiring a lawyer — Vernon's work-related experiences discussed at home about lawyers defending the company from bad press would be overheard) etc.). And so on and so forth. —tkepner
Most accurate portrayal of Salzar:
Rise of the Guardians
Rant by Little-Shadow-Chan
"I actually don't really like the movie that much now that I look back on it..I found myself caring ONLY about Jack and Pitch, but not the Guardians. The Guardians see things only in black and white, they don't really get the whole story with Pitch. I just wish, and I can't stress this enough, I wish the film had a more mature story and had been more realistic. For instance, Jack gets kidnapped by Bunnymund..and takes it rather well. Now, in a corruption of frost, I decided to make Jack more realistic and suspicious, not to mention hateful of the Guardians.Why? Because in my version, they push him to become someone he's not. Someone who believes that is destiny isn't set in stone just because someone says it is which would be like your mother and father or whoever having your life set up for you as soon as you were born.
Another thing I don't like AT ALL was the ending of the movie. The Guardians are supposed to be pure and kind hearted, but what does Tooth do? She goes and punches Pitch in the jaw, knocking out one of his teeth. Yeah, real great example you got going there, guys.
ANOTHER thing that ticked me off was how Jack had been alone for THREE HUNDRED YEARS and then when Pitch arrives, NOW they need his help? I'd be like,"Uh, no. I'm not helping you guys." ...WHAT WERE THEY DOING ALL THAT TIME?
And then there's Pitch. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Pitch. He and Jack were the only ones in the movie as I said earlier, that I cared about. The scene where Pitch wants Jack to join him and Jack refuses his offer made me honestly really sad. Because all Pitch wanted was to be with Jack, all he wanted was some companionship. And he thought Jack wanted that as well.
BUT NOOOO THE GUARDIANS JUST SEE IN BLACK AND WHITE AND JUST
Screams into my hands*..The only good thing I liked about the film was the animation. It was fantastic actually.
Also I laughed when Pitch shot Sandy."

A 15 year old girl holds hands with her 1 year old son. People call her a slut. No-one knows she was raped at 13. People call a girl fat. No-one knows she has a serious disease which causes her to be overweight. People call an old man ugly. No-one knows he had a serious injury to his face while fighting for our country in the war. Repost this if you're against bullying and stereotyping. 95% of you won't." - from Sarah310592.
I am the girl ... that doesn't go to school dances, and when I do go, I sit in a corner and read a book. I am the girl that people look through when I say something. I am the girl that spends most of her free time reading, writing, or doing other activities that most teenagers wouldn't call normal.I am the girl that people call weird, and a freak either behind my back or to my face.I am the girl that doesn't spend all her time on My Space, or talking to a girlfriend on a cellphone or a regular phone.I am the girl that hasn't been asked out in a year. I am the girl that has stopped to smell the flowers and jump and splash in the rain.
But I am also the girl who knows and is proud to be who she is, doesn't care if people call her weird, who loves reading and writing and doing the things that no one seems to have the time to do any more, who loves and is obsessed with Danny Phantom (Put what ever you're obsessed with in here), who can express herself better with words, and knows the importance of the little things.
