  “A scarlet steam engine was waiting next to a platform  packed with people. A sign overhead said Hogwarts Express, eleven o’clock. Harry looked behind him and saw a wrought-iron archway where the barrier had been, with  the words Platform Nine and Three-Quarters on it.
  Smoke from the engine drifted over the heads of the chattering crowd, while cats of every color wound here and there between their legs. Owls hooted to one another in a disgruntled sort of way over the babble and the scraping of heavy trunks.”

Happy September 1st, y’all!

deciduousprincess:

a lot of meta writing about harry potter tends to forget the role genre plays in the series. Instead, we get a lot of meta about whether snape was right or whether JKR condones abuse, and reading these arguments has led me to a weird conclusion that I would like to talk…

“Harry Potter is symmetrical.”

Not just symmetrical - this is ring composition, favoured by Homer and other good writers. The 4th book is at the centre of the ring.
JK Rowling knows her beans.

Reblogging because I like that phrase a lot.



i love everything about this post

I love how dementors are synonymous to Umbridge. I agree with this completely.

This… is really amazing. I-… wow.


The technical term for this is a chiasm.  Props to JK for using a great old storytelling technique.

FUDGE PLACES DEMENTORS AT HOGWARTS
FUDGE PLACES UMBRIDGE AT HOGWARTS

Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women for the money. And it made her miserable.

As a young writer, Alcott concentrated on lurid pulp stories of revenge, murder, and adultery–“blood and thunder” literature, as she called i–and enjoyed writing very much. She was in her mid 30s when an editor suggested she try writing a book for girls. Alcott wasn’t very interested, but her father was a complete moron with money and had left the family in terrible financial trouble. Alcott wrote Little Women in hopes of some decent sales and a little breathing room and got way more than she asked for. The money in sequels was too good to turn down (and her father didn’t get any smarter with a dime), but Alcott hated writing what she called “moral pap for the young” and longed to return to the smut and violence of her early endeavors.
