Re: Put together a Magical Self-Defence Kit for Muggles (RAR?).

It still killed someone. Voldemort. (well all but because Horcruxes) It was reflected, not stopped. Sort of killed Voldemort, although the point is that it was successfully defended against (by sending it back at its caster), which shows that even the claim that it can't be blocked by magic is not ...

The Killing Curse cannot be blocked by a conventional shield charm. It has, however, been blocked or otherwise countered by: -The love protection from an act of deliberate self-sacrifice.

Re: Put together a Magical Self-Defence Kit for Muggles (RAR?).

I doubt it. The point of the killing curse is that it finds something alive and stops it living, just as that. Whether it is protected by dead clothing or dead metal is unlikely to make a difference. Walls block it because it hit something solid (otherwise it would go through walls), found nothing ...

Re: Last Jedi first trailer.

Oh, no, of course her defection wasn't out of principle, but at the same time, I don't see why disloyalty to the space Nazis is a mark against her. Going all out to prove herself next time is a possibility. Another is that she's been sacked/slated for execution and is now working as a mercenary or ...

Re: Last Jedi first trailer.

I'm not sure why being a traitor is a mark against her when the regime she served is utterly vile. Or are you one of those people who thinks that the most important quality of a soldier is that they follow orders, no matter what? Personally, I think what it sets her up as is a self-serving pragmati...

Re: Harry Potter and the Prime Minister's Plan.

Well your PM sounds kind of generic, but I don't know how you could go about making him sound more like Blair or Brown. Bond's reactions to the reveal of magic are low key but of course that's Craig!Bond's thing and you've implied there's a bigger turmoil he's just not showing. Interesting use of Sh...

Re: Put together a Magical Self-Defence Kit for Muggles (RAR?).

I think Thermite for horcruxs and 'killing' Dementors, run into the big problem of analysing magic. It doesn't have to make rational sense. It might not matter if thermite burns as hot as fiendfyre, it still might not destroy horcruxes because there might be a metaphysical properties of fiendfyre th...

This is a big question about TIEs in any theory.

Re: Harry Potter and the Prime Minister's revenge (James Bond vs. Voldemort).

But you also have to consider that the PM doing this is essentially sending a big "Fuck You" to the Minister of Magic (unless he's deliberately doing it behind his back). What happens if the Ministry of Magic finds out and decides to become an independent, mini-government rather than tole...

Re: Let's Talk Starbases

Also, I wonder what the distinction between a Starbase and a Deep Space station is. Because DS9 is not in deep space. It could be a matter of scale. As DS9 had a commander in charge where Starbases usually have Admirals. Also possibly that Starbases are starfleet owned facilities and Deep Space stat...

Re: Xanth series to be made into movie and TV show

Well I mean...Sword of Truth got a TV adaptation (which by all accounts pissed the author off immensely) that was financially successful, and far as I know Xanth never came anywhere near the genuine nastiness Terry Goodkind churned out. So I guess it's been done. Wiki seems to indicate he was fine ...
