While I was reorganizing my tags, I realized that I make a LOT of private posts that I mean to make public but then forget about. So I'm going to repost those that I was entertained by so that you can, you know, have the benefit of my genius, etc.
This one is from 2006 May 24, just over two years ago.
So, I was trying to figure out why, though I love HP, I always feel slightly disappointed by it. Eventually I stumbled upon the reason, which I quickly realized should have been obvious.
Harry Potter does not have spaceships.
Yes, all our Potterian characters are sadly Earthbound. No hyperdrives, no warp engines, no faster-than-light travel. It's quite disappointing. Fortunately, my imagination was able to leap in and save the day.
