Not surprising: to be honest Ms. Rowling is a shit writer—at least that’s what I thought when the books came out.
I mean, let’s start with the name: seriously? Harry Potter? Who comes up with a fictional name that makes such an easy target? You know what I started calling him? “Harry Pot-smoker”.
Then there’s the simple fact that she isn’t creative in terms of story-telling—as you’ve pointed out. If I want a story of magicians pwning each other, I have 81 verses I can read, and these are way better written. Plus they remind me why Govenrments and magalomaniacs suck.
Anyways: look, I think it’s been established since the TrueShibes incident that Stefan is a bit of a looney. He has his ideas, then tries to fit the facts to them. He also fails to realize that, some days a cigar is just a bloody cigar.
