now you know the real reason draco hates potter.

>first year at hogwarts

It's enough to make you want to become a death eater, to be honest.

Wizards can't poof magical potions into existence. they have to gather ingredients, follow a recipe, and wave a wand around. Enchanted candies probably work much like potions.

While this copypasta is old and stale, I always agreed with this line. Magic in the books is pretty cool. In the movies, it may as well be a goddamn sci-fi flick, since every single magic fight is just SET WANDS TO STUN, FIRE VAGUELY-COLORED BOLTS THAT THROW PEOPLE BACK WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING

>>87827886
I honestly thought this for like 75% of all the movies. Gringotts has rent-a-cops. The leaky cauldron has a bartender. There are countless shit-tier wizards doing menial tasks that other magical effects and items are shown doing all the time. The wizarding world has a very low population. Maybe 50 thousand at most. Muggles have all these shit jobs because we don;t have magic but do have a lot of people. What's the their excuse?

Because Harry Potter is a selfish and inconsiderate cunt! It is this typical passive liberal crap that made Harry Potter the dullest franchise in the history of movie franchises. Seriously each episode following the boy wizard and his pals from Hogwarts Academy as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the gloomy imagery, the series’ only consistency has been its lack of excitement and ineffective use of special effects, all to make magic unmagical, to make action seem inert.

Perhaps the die was cast when Rowling vetoed the idea of Spielberg directing the series; she made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody; just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for her books. The Harry Potter series might be anti-Christian (or not), but it’s certainly the anti-James Bond series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.

>a-at least the books were good though
"No!"
The writing is dreadful; the book was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every time a character went for a walk, the author wrote instead that the character "stretched his legs."

I began marking on the back of an envelope every time that phrase was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Rowling's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that she has no other style of writing. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Harry Potter by the same Stephen King. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are reading Harry Potter at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to read Stephen King." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you read "Harry Potter" you are, in fact, trained to read Stephen King.

I think with the trolley lady the reality is that she probably does it because she likes to do it. I mean, the train is like a four times a year thing? School starts after summer, school stop before christmas, school starts after christmas, school stop before summer. She works the trolley on these trips and then goes back to doing something else. Most likely she works at hogwarts or the candy company that makes all the shit she sell. I mean, even if you're a wizard, owning a candy store and stuff can still be your dream job.

Also working security at gringots is also probably a pretty serious job and you probably need to know a lot of combat spells to qualify. I mean, the place literally has dragons guarding their shit as well, why would they cheap on the wizard guards?
>>
>>87827071
>He probably just meant one or two of everything.

Explicitly said in the books

>Around half past twelve there was a great clattering outside in the corridor and a smiling, dimpled woman slid back their door and said, ‘Anything off the trolley, dears?’
>Harry, who hadn’t had any breakfast, leapt to his feet, but Ron’s ears went pink again and he muttered that he’d brought sandwiches. Harry went out into the corridor.
>He had never had any money for sweets with the Dursleys and now that he had pockets rattling with gold and silver he was ready to buy as many Mars Bars as he could carry – but the woman didn’t have Mars Bars. What she did have were Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans, Drooble’s Best Blowing Gum, Chocolate Frogs, Pumpkin Pasties, Cauldron Cakes, Liquorice Wands and a number of other strange things Harry had never seen in his life. Not wanting to miss anything, he got some of everything and paid the woman eleven silver Sickles and seven bronze Knuts.

No they don't, the entire story takes place in a school where kids are spending whole weeks learning to do simple shit like unlock a door. The 'make literally anything' spells you do see cast are being cast by fucking professors of their chosen field. Many characters are mentioned outright as being shit at various magic disciplines, which they would likely end up paying more skilled wizards to handle for them.

In a world where magic takes care of every boring task, how do a kid fresh out of school without any work experience even make it's money? The hyper talented ones will probably do fine, but what about the large number of average students who don't have the funds to start a prank shop or something?
Don't tell me they will go work in sales; Ollivander was ridiculously old, owned one of the most famous wand shop on the most famous market street in all the UK, and he still was able to do it alone.

My point is, JK Rowling has neglected to explore the booming prostitution industry in the magic world. Think about it, what else are the cute Hufflepuffies supposed to do when they get their diploma? I imagine that it's very frequent for young wizards to work a good two years as sex workers, until they have enough cash to start their own thing.

The Ministry of Magic is so vast and all-encompassing that there is always a job waiting for witches and wizards who don't have something else to do.

They are never fully staffed - indeed it would be impossible to fully staff the MoM because of how ancient and disorganised the structure of it is. Occasionally they hire people to try and complete an up to date organisational chart, but to date nobody has ever succeeded and most end up going mad or switching to the Department for Disposal of Magical Manure when they just can't take it anymore.

When everyone can conjure shit from thin air, society would place emphasis on having things that were made by hand or are unique.

It's like in Star Trek, replicators mean their society has everything they need, so they instead place value on having things that can't be replicated or on professions where you excel for it's own sake.

That was never implied. They have a huge family tho so none of the wealth is centralized. Unlike the malfoys who were single son lines most of the way down.

No, they only suck at magic that would help them economically, they're perfectly good at other magics which is how they all have high level ministry jobs (among other various trades)

>>87833539
Basically. Same reason a hand made, besppoke tailored suit is considered better than an off-the-rack generic one. Craftsmanship matters, and Mrs. Weasley was too prideful to let her son go in a generic conjured dress-robe, disregarding his personal embarrassment at the style. She's an out of touch middle aged woman, trying (and failing) to keep up with the Joneses.

>>87833542
Once you can have anything conjured, authenticity and uniqueness become more important than simply having something.
>>
>>87826145
fuck 'em.

>>87833557
Remind me again how sewing a suit is so much more complex than all of the other spells they have been shown to know.

>>87833520
No, Ron was a prat about Harry paying for shit and his punishment was that he had to wear handmedowns. Just like an average Joe who thinks they're too good for charity has to deal with becoming homeless
>>
>>87833622
It's crafting something. It's not like doing the dishes.
>>
>>87833625
Latinum is explicitly valued because it can't be replicated
>>
>>87833632
Remind me again why poverty exists in the magic world.
>>

>>87833649
If you can make something with magic, someone else can just as easily unmake it

If they tried to conjure a nice house and nice things, the Malfoys and the like would destroy it all because they don't want to share their elite status with just any fag with a wand. So you have to graft and earn your gold, and suffer if you don't have enough.

Muggle and wizard societies have the same problems, just on different scales. Same as African and European societies both having relative poverty and relative affluence.

So Ron's mom, who decided to shit out a ton of kids for a living, never learned a sewing spell? Sewing a suit is just some advanced magic that only the best wizards in the world can figure out? Ron's dad studied muggles. Couldn't he have used the magic they knew to make some goods to trade for a muggle-made suit?

Harry's ancestors were savants who made an inherited fortune by coming up with potions and shit. It's why James was such a dick to Snape and why Lily married him regardless, he was a wealthy spoiled brat.

>Linfred was a vague and absent-minded fellow whose Muggle neighbours often called upon his medicinal services. None of them realised that Linfred’s wonderful cures for pox and ague were magical; they all thought him a harmless and lovable old chap, pottering about in his garden with all his funny plants. His reputation as a well-meaning eccentric served Linfred well, for behind closed doors he was able to continue the series of experiments that laid the foundation of the Potter family’s fortune. Historians credit Linfred as the originator of a number of remedies that evolved into potions still used to this day, including Skele-gro and Pepperup Potion. His sales of such cures to fellow witches and wizards enabled him to leave a significant pile of gold to each of his seven children upon his death.
-
>It was Fleamont who took the family gold and quadrupled it, by creating magical Sleekeazy’s Hair Potion ( ‘two drops tames even the most bothersome barnet’ ). He sold the company at a vast profit when he retired, but no amount of riches could compensate him or his wife Euphemia for their childlessness. They had quite given up hope of a son or daughter when, to their shock and surprise, Euphemia found that she was pregnant and their beloved boy, James, was born.

The hyper talented ones will probably do fine, but what about the large number of average students who don't have the funds to start a prank shop or something? Don't tell me they will go work in sales; Ollivander was ridiculously old, owned one of the most famous wand shop on the most famous market street in all the UK, and he still was able to do it alone.

Remember the scene in Deathly Hallows when they break into the ministry? There's rows and rows of people using their wands just to print Breitbart pamphlets.

Actually it's mentioned in the fourth book extensively, in fact you can find them talking about it at least once a chapter, here I've just opened the book to a random page and found this;

"Honestly Harry do you ever pay attention in class?" Hermoine said scoldingly.

"Look I just know that in the muggle world this would all be very very wrong! In fact I think I'm going to be sick!" Harry said clutching his stomach and keeling over the table.

"Dunno what you're on about mate, this shit is delicious!"
Ron said smiling ear to ear revealing the bits of corn stuck in his teeth and allowing the generous amounts of gravy he had served to dribble freely down his chin and back on to his plate.

"Honestly Ron!"
Hermoine said looking in disgust but not before bighting her lip for a brief moment.

"Anyway Harry where did you think all the food we eat everyday comes from? It's not like they have a whole house Elf staff working day and night in the kitchen!" Herion giggled.

Before Ron could finish shoveling his turkey in his mouth Ron burst out with laughter upon hearing heroines remark.
"Fucking good one mate!!! Top notch banter!!! Bhahhaaha!" bits of turkey and mash potatoes flew through the air sticking to Harrrys face as Ron continued to bellow with laughter.

"Ron really now!" Heroine said in disgust but not before moaning and flushing red in her cheeks.

Finally harry stood up, he had heard enough "GOD DAMNIT DONT YOU UNDERSTAND YOU ARE EATING PROCESSED SHIT! ITS FECAL MATTER FROM WHO KNOWS WHERE MAYBE EVEN HAGRIDS FAT HAIRY ASS!" Harry turned to face the great hall still in a rage "YOU ARE ALL EATING SHIT DONT YOU GET IT?!" finally seeing that he was not getting through to anyone, Harry stormed off but not before shitting his pants in a rage.

"What's with him?" Ron said confused while choking on a chicken bone.

The reason this scene was stupid is because it's from one of the dullest franchises in the history of movie franchises. Seriously each episode following the boy wizard and his pals from Hogwarts Academy as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the gloomy imagery, the series’ only consistency has been its lack of excitement and ineffective use of special effects, all to make magic unmagical, to make action seem inert.

Perhaps the die was cast when Rowling vetoed the idea of Spielberg directing the series; she made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody, just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for her books. The Harry Potter series might be anti-Christian (or not), but it’s certainly the anti-James Bond series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.

>a-at least the books were good though
"No!"
The writing is dreadful; the book was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every time a character went for a walk, the author wrote instead that the character "stretched his legs."

I began marking on the back of an envelope every time that phrase was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Rowling's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that she has no other style of writing. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Harry Potter by the same Stephen King. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are reading Harry Potter at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to read Stephen King." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you read "Harry Potter" you are, in fact, trained to read Stephen King.
