There was a time where Harry Potter was the punching bag of the literary world. About a decade or so ago, a lot of elitist Lord of the Rings fanboys beat on the franchise like gangbangers... Those were the dark days since I was an HP apologist back then. Having read both LotR and HP (among a whole lot of fantasy series) made me see the brilliance of the two and it hurt when "old-school" purists try and stop new material from flourishing.
Fast forward to today and HP has grown alongside its fans and both have overtaken the world with much fanaticism. Yes, there is a new punching bag in that god awful series called Twilight and HP fans have earned the right to be proud of the franchise they grew up to love.... But that is no reason to gloat!!!!
And now we have all these stupid *ss fanboy threads. Not just here in CV. Almost all communities I have been in hail Harry Potter as if it is an infallible piece of work. Bullsh*t!
I hope this resurgence of Harry Potter popularity stops. I hope it dies. I hope to shoot it in the face with a shotgun and burn it to ashes!
