Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts and Me @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself! How to join up & upcoming topics here.
Hi everyone! The Harry Potter takeover continues here with our regular Harry Potter Moment of the Week :) I've posted a slew of new topics in case anyone missed it and they can be found here. We've got topics lined up all the way into 2018! I wanted to say thank you again to everyone who pitched in with topic suggestions ♥ You guys are the best! Also, to those also participating in HP Month, don't forget to swing by Faith's House Cup Post and record your HPMotW posts in the comments to claim your points for your respective Houses ;) Ok! Let's get to it then:
If You Could Change One Thing About Book 1, What Would It Be?
Eep, we're talking about changing things from the books. But but but...the books are PERFECTION. HOW am I supposed to want to change any single detail?! I can't.
Ok. Ok. For the sake of this post, I'll wrack my brain and try to think of a single thing I'd change. I mean sure, I wish that Harry didn't have to go back to Number 4 Privet after getting all of his magical things. It's like he gets a taste of the wonders to come and then: womp womp. Stuck in this dump again! I also wish that Snape hadn't started in on Harry right in their first Potions lesson. I mean, the guy never gave the kid a chance! He just hated him without knowing Harry at all. Sigh. And since Hermione is such a kindred spirit, I do wish she hadn't overheard Ron making fun of her for being a know-it-all. But as a plot device, it serves for her crying in the bathroom, facing the troll and having the boys help her out so that they can all become friends so I'll keep it as is I guess.
I think I would change all the stuff about Norbert. He was cute, granted but Hagrid getting the beast gets him in trouble, it gets the trio in trouble (first years getting detention in the Forbidden Forest, hello!!)
Not to mention the fact that getting Norbert meant that Voldy gets the information he needs to get past Fluffy and closer to the Philosopher's Stone. That was too close for comfort for me, I don't know about you guys...I know it needed to happen the way that it did but, there you have it.
Did you all struggle as much as I did with this question??
