2003/03/28 00:35:00 - Random thoughts as I walked home tonight.
Through an accident of literaryness, and a random newsgroup, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy and Hogwarts are now as much a part of my life as Julian Barnard, George Kirrin and Kirrin Island.

On the other hand, while I've read more (by words) about the former four, I understand how the latter set think, operate, and look like a lot better. Granted, the Five don't have such deep character development as HP&co, but the only one of the HP lot that I feel I could really predict their reaction to a situation would be Harry himself,

I'm not sure if this is due to writing style, or my age, or what.

There's less HP. Ergo less to base your ideas of what their reactions would be on...

Or JKR isn't as consistant.

One of the two.

And fanon is confusing my ideas of canon so far that if asked to predict what the HP lot would do I'd probably come up with something really silly.

Not only is there less HP, a major feature of the HP books is that the characters are growing and changing as the series progresses - so Harry from TPS and Harry from TGOF would likely react very differently to the same situation...

Yeah, I guess so. OTOH, the five do also grow during the (two?) years of
their books. The George (in particular) of #21 is a lot more grown up
than that of #1 (can't remember the titles, atm).
