The Saruman of Harry Potter

I saw a post recently that said, “Every fandom has that one character that just didn’t deserve it.” For example, Harry Potter has Remus Lupin.

I’m currently working my way through the series for the fourth time. I just finished reading Prisoner of Azkaban, and boy, do I have some opinions.

(Spoilers, spoilers, blah, blah, blah.)

November Update (Because Apparently I Only Post Once a Month Now)

You know, I was all set to do my 30 Days 30 Stories thing that I usually do for Nano, and I don’t think I’ve written a word this whole month. We’re eleven days in, and I’ve written under 500 words, if anything. I don’t generally participate in official Nano, choosing instead to think of it as time to focus on what I should be doing anyway (kinda like Christmas is theoretically a time to focus on being thankful and loving).

Instead of writing this month, I’ve been crocheting and listening to a lot of podcasts. The most recent one I have become obsessed with is The Highly Sensitive Person’s Podcast. Continue reading
