Today’s Let’s Chat is a little bit of a different one for me. This is something that I have done on my blog before. As a Harry Potter fanatic, both the books and films, but there is something that has always bothered me. James Potter. Almost all of the snippets of James’ life, specifically his time at Hogwarts, he comes across as a bit of douche bag. At least in my opinion.
This was one of the most problematic aspects of Harry Potter for me. James and the other marauders clearly bully Snape and that issue is barely addressed. Although I will say that the others have many more redeeming qualities that James appears to have. Maybe that’s because we got to know them as adults? Who knows. Anyway, no wonder Snape is a bit miffed with Harry. I mean, you would be too if someone’s father had hexed you for no other reason than they could, wouldn’t you? And of course since James passed away, I guess Harry is the outlet for Snape (not that I agree with this either mind).
This is something that I have been thinking about for sometime and have never really entered into a conversation with anyone about it. That is my reason for posting this, I am hoping that it will inspire you to leave you opinions in the comments down below so that we can have a discussion about it. Surely, I can’t be the only one that has problems with this?
Peace and pages
