HP - Told from a Different Point of View

Postby Prof. Tarma Amelia Black » Thu Feb 08, 2018 3:14 am

What do you think the Harry Potter books would be like, if they were written by Hermione Granger, or Ron Weasley, or some other person who is fairly close to Harry? Would they focus on Harry Potter, or on the events, or on how that person (whoever is writing it) was affected by the events -- and how they affect the events.

Or -- if it was specifically focused on Harry Potter, how would the books be different? Would Ron Weasley have written the shortest book ever, with all seven years bunched up into one book the length of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone? Would Hermione Granger end up writing something which was about 30 volumes long, with cross-references and quotations from all kinds of sources?

What would Professor McGonagall have written - or Professor Snape?

I definitely agree with your assumptions on the length of the books/book in the case of Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. I think I would really like to see the story told from Professor Snape's point of view. He became one of my favorite characters in Deathly Hallows, but I had always been interested by him since the beginning and wondering why he hated Harry so much. We got glimpses of his story in the finality of the series, but I would have loved to know the conversations that he had with Professor Dumbledore during Harry's time at the school.

I also think the point of view of Albus Dumbledore would be an interesting read as well. Imagine all the knowledge he would put in there for us with life lessons and beautiful quotes that he always told Harry. I'm sure they would be filled with a lot of curiosities as well such as his interesting sayings at the opening feasts like "Tuck in."
