Harry Potter Thursday is a weekly meme created by Uncorked Thoughts.
I love the Harry Potter books, though Harry Potter is not my favorite character by any stretch of the imagination. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy reading about his adventures, but I think there are richer characters within this world than him (Hermione, Luna, etc.). This week's Harry Potter Question asked me to take a look at one such character: Albus Dumbledore.
The idea is to rename the books from his point of view. Dumbledore was a great man, but he did have his flaws which I believe he knew, understood, and even admitted to at times.
It was fun trying to imagine new titles. I only wish I knew something of graphic arts to have been able to create new covers for each one!
Albus Dumbledore and the Year of Gryffindor (or: Never Mind Those Pesky Slytherins)
Albus Dumbledore and the Year of Let's Mess With The Teachers (or: Hiring Lockheart will be fun!)
Albus Dumbledore and the "I'm so smart but I missed 3 underage wizards becoming animagi" Year
Albus Dumbledore and the Year of Dangerous Things That Shouldn't Be Around Children (or Goblet of FIAH!!!)
Albus Dumbledore and the Year the Ministry Tried to Take Over (or: Corelius, You're a Prat)
Albus Dumbledore and the Next Great Adventure
Albus Dumbledore and the Year of Being in Harry's Mind
This week's topic makes me wonder what a book from Dumbledore's perspective would be like. There's so much to his behavior that we only ever hear from Harry's perspective.
