Good Petunia Stories

Pá 12 února 2021

(my Reddit post “LF: Petunia is a witch afterall”)

I know about these:

There is a one where Petunia lives in Diagon Alley with both her boys (Dudley and Harry) above the bookstore running a kind of kindergarten for other kids, and eventually organizes destruction of Voldemort, because Dumbledore is too inept to manage it himself. Not much good, and I cannot find it ATM.

Readers on the thread added me also these:

  • Sisters (Doing It for Themselves) by neymovirne” neymovirne wrote this oneshot after one of the discussions here a couple of months ago. Witch Petunia and muggle Lily. My comment on that was, that I thought more about the canonical universe and her finding out being a witch later in her life, but this is good nevertheless. So, what's next? Harry's adventures among kangaroos?
  • The Day The Dursleys Came To Hogwarts by ordinaryguy2” Before the first task Snape brings the Dursleys to Hogwarts to taunt Harry. This breaks everything, including a binding on Petunia's magic. Tropey but i think it mixes up the tropes to good effect. H/Hr

I have found these later:

  • Acceptance by AsphodelWolf15” If Vernon and Petunia were so concerned about their image why did they treat Harry the way they did? A child with a bad reputation living in their house forced them to tell tales, when it would have been much easier if they treated him like part of the family. How would Harry have turned out if he was accepted? (This is not for Dumbledore fans). 2BRead

On Vampires

Ne 24 ledna 2021

(my comment regarding vampires on AO3)

Technical question of the day. Would the Homonum Revelius spell reveal a hiding vampire? I figure it will reveal a hiding werewolf but they’re still sort of human. Aren’t vampires supposed to be “dead” and so would such a spell reveal them …

Their finest

St 02 září 2020

(my comments on the review of “Their Finest” by Susan Wloszczyna)

I really wanted to like this film, it started nicely, and generally I like it, but then there are points which just don’t make sense at all. It is even worse when whole film is about scriptwriting.

O literárních stylech biblických knih aneb Job

So 18 července 2020

(kázání, silně krácené pronesené ve sboru ČCE Praha-Braník, 26. července 2020)

Textem dnešního kázání je v podstatě celá kniha Job a větší část Starého zákona, ale abych měl alespoň nějaký konkrétní text před kázáním, vybral jsem Job 42:1-6:

Job na to Hospodinu řekl: // „Uznávám, že jsi všemocný a že …

On bashing

Pá 24 dubna 2020

Bashing and similar are not the cause of poor quality of their stories, but they are just a symptom of the author being lead by the poor design of his story into areas, which would be impossible to resolve or it would be too difficult, so bashing is then just …
