Ask JKR a Question

I'm not going to close this comm down because there might be a chance in the future that Jo Rowling might have another Q&A session with her fans where she'll take more questions about the books. For now, though, as she isn't doing anything of the sort in the near future, the comm will go on hiatus. So keep an eye out on your friendslist for when Jo has another session or interview, and bring forth your questions.

Why oh, why? [Sep. 25th, 2005|07:15 pm]

I just read half-blood prince and was just wondering what the heck happened? I've been depressed the whole day because it left so bad taste in my mouth...
So why there weren't any plot in the book but just some weird teenage romance stuff? I'm actually kind of shamed now to have said everybody how I love Harry Potter, because now... well I don't think I can force myself to read the up-coming ones if their going to be as stupid as this. I actually had to close my eyes, like with some very bad fanfiction, in some point because the text was just so lame and absurd and 'bold and beautiful' like.

So what was this all about? Did you dry up of ideas? Wanted to please the teenage fans? Wan't to please the movie studios?

And that love part... please... what was that? I saw Harry face voldemort with ten carebears... I though you had some serious point behind your writing but I guess I was wrong (not that the power of love is bad thing... it's just so cliche to be said in that form).

I thought this was a great idea! [Jun. 2nd, 2005|12:56 am]

You saw earlier that Katie Couric is going to interview Jo, right? Well, now there's a place where you can ask Jo a question and Katie might answer it. Dunno if this a lottery type draw or whatever, but I hope a good question *coughpuppiescough* is asked. Wonder what I should ask...?

Another question. [May. 23rd, 2005|05:34 pm]
Ask JKR a Question

Another one I posted up at the Leaky Lounge boards a few days back:

-- How did James, Sirius, Remus, and Peter come up with the nicknames 'Prongs', 'Padfoot', 'Moony', and 'Wormtail', respectively? I know it was after their animagi/werewolf form, but how did they think up THOSE particular names... did they read it up in a book or something?

Hey everyone, I posted up all the questions you listed here to the Leaky Lounge, the TLC forum where Melissa is taking questions to ask Jo. You can find all of them here. If I've left out any question you've asked here already, please let me know and I'll go straight to the forum and edit to add. So what do you lot think of the list thusfar?

Also, I managed to think up a fourth and fifth batch of questions to ask Jo, which can be found below. I swear something new just keeps popping to mind. :)

My question isn't canon related.

Have you ever wished you could go back and rewrite a scene(s) or situation(s) in the first five books, because readers might have misinterpreted it?  If so, which one(s)?

And a related question - Is there any scene(s) or situation(s) you would like to go back and rewrite, just for your own personal reasons?  If so, which one(s)?

How did reverse-echo!Lily know that there was a Portkey in the graveyard?
Also, why did the Tri-Wizard cup transport Harry back to Hogwarts from the graveyard?

Mmm, questions for Jo... [May. 16th, 2005|01:49 pm]
Ask JKR a Question

I'm bewildered regarding the Prefect situation. Therefore:

What are the specifics of the Prefect system?
-Once chosen, does a student maintain his or her status from year to year?
-What influence does it have on the title of Head Boy and Girl? (That is, for example, why was Remus Prefect and James Head Boy?)
-Considering that, was Lily a Prefect?
-Why on earth was Draco made Prefect?

Please add on, because I'm positive I've completely forgotten most of what I want to ask.

Also: Why didn't Harry look for his mother in the Great Hall during the Pensieve scene in OotP? Is she not in the same year as MWPP and Snape?
