After a stretch of time that feels like a decade, only a fool would keep going. Lucky for me, I have always been a fool. So Advanced Muggle Studies trudges on with our read of Prisoner of Azkaban.
This week we discuss: Quidditch rules and why they suck; the apparent dearth of Hogwarts theft; Cedric Diggory, Nice Guy TM; Percy Weasley is a security risk; Draco’s Muggle jokes and whether or not that proves fanfic right; Harry discovers girls and is immediately cockblocked; THE WORST QUIDDITCH GAME FOR SEXUAL PUNS MY GOD; by process of elimination we FINALLY parse how a person can be expelled from Hogwarts; teenagers have terrible fucking priorities; Harry and the Four Scoldings In One Chapter; book vs. film outside the Shrieking Shack; why Harry Potter would suck as a criminal; Severus Snape is an asshole but also he’s not wrong; Moony does quick thinking; why Snape doesn’t call Lupin out for his blatant and obvious lies; consistent character flaws; and THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!!!
