Please let this be an offshoot where we follow Neville around during the events in the books.  We get to see Neville work all the girls in the class while keeping it a secret and maintaining his dorkish rep.  We can call it Harry's Shadow.

vudukungfu: I'd love to be married to her.
Just cook and clean and go out for dinner once in a while.

J.K, I give great foot massages, if you are reading this.


She's rich, has big boobs, and is rich. What more could a guy want?

That is all well and good, but I would like to see a little more about  what was happening over at Vince Clortho Public School For Wizards during the whole Voldemort incident.

Copperbelly watersnake: She gets a lot of credit in my mind for not going the prequel route.


The prequels will be written by JKs son and another author.  These will cover the original raise of Voldemort.  Then they will do a pre pre prequel that will cover the actual generation of the hallows.   Then they will go thousands of years into the future and reveal that the hallows were not destroyed by Harry and only the 10^6th clone of Neville have the power to distroy them.

Fubini: I gotta say, there's nothing wrong with a good author producing good fiction and getting paid for it. I'm sorry that subby feels like making money is a bad thing.

Also, it'll at least be no worse than the other dreck they call films these days. It's not another Michael Bay film.

//They should let Michael Bay direct a Harry Potter film


you know how I know you're an expert on films? you trashed Michael Bay.

I love all the people who biatch on Fark when someone is successful.  I can only imagine its because they have never come up with a creative idea of their own and then worked their ass off to make it a success.  Hipster Socialists are all fine with the "everything should be free" creed until someone walks into their house, kicks them in their ken-doll like nutsack and takes their ironic man-grooming shears and vintage Ant-Man lunchbox.

JK Rowling came up with a tremendously inventive idea, wrote it beautifully, and marketed it shrewdly.  She can profit off it for as long as - and for as much as - she wants.  Ditto for George Lucas.  If it were that easy to have such a monster success, it wouldn't be a once in a generational thing.

Mike Chewbacca: stupiddream: Mike Chewbacca: Jim from Saint Paul: Until she puts out a sub-par book/movie, she gets my confidence.

/wasn't a really big fan till Azkaban
//first 2 books were "meh"

I recently reread 1, and it was much better than I remembered, and significantly better than the movie.

CSB: I read 1 when it 1st came out in paperback.  I was going on a cruise and wanted something light to read.  I had heard an interview with Rowling on Fresh Air and the story sounded good.  I started it in the line to get on the ship and finished it before we departed port.  I kept telling my wife that she should read it and that she would love it.  She kept saying 'but it's a childrens book'.  She finally read it about a month later and loved it so much that she eventually went to all of the release parties at Barnes and Noble dressed up as one of the adult characters and even won one of the costume contests.  I created a monster.  Although funtime with Tonks was awesome!

accio wand! ENGORGIO!


Which reminds me of my favorite Fark harry-potter headline

"
Guy at Harry Potter Movie: "Engorgio. Spankus monkius." Police: "ARRESTO""

I don't know why it amuses me so, but it does.

Fano: FrancoFile: Walker: From celebritynetworth.com:
JK Rowling is a British author and one of the wealthiest private citizens in the United Kingdom, with a net worth of $1 billion.

How much money does this woman need????

I'm more concerned with her empire (see Walt Disney).
a) she's crowding out other voices in children's literature and fantasy literature
b) she and her descendents will lawyer up so that her copyrights never expire (she's already done with once, squashing a 3rd party index/guide/concordance)

Crowding out? One can make the argument that she created a market for tween literature. When I was a kid, there seemed to be a big jump between kiddie books and adult lit. Finished with Babysitters Club/hardy boys/cleary/judy blume? Off to read Dickens and Austen.


Seriously! World of Warcraft is crowing out the MMO market! Avengers is crowding out the superhero market! The Yankees are crowding out the baseball market!
