he problem with movies is that it’s hard to make your own decisions about it if your boycotting it, and that’s how you end up making a mountain of a molehill.
For about a month now, all I’ve been hearing about is Disney’s first “openly gay character” in the movie Beauty and the Beast. Most of the articles were about negative reactions, specifically parents. Many complained that it was implanting thoughts into children’s brains, or asking what they would tell their children, etc…
I read something. Rather I like it or not, the writer part of my brain automatically wants to write about it. If I like the ideas, and I’m not ashamed to say I actually read that, I might translate that into fanfiction.
So a while back I was looking for characters sheets and quizzes to help with the characters I was writing. Some were the typical character sheets – the ones made for authors. But I came across one that was for personal insight.
Originally, I was going to tackle it the way I usually do. But a little ways into the first one I started having fun with it. I think I found out more about my characters through that.
Both trilogies are seriously alike. A sixteen-year-old girl from an overlooked faction/district in a dystopian society gets put in a competition with a limited number of winners and high stakes.

It’s seventeen years after the Battle of Hogwarts, and Harry Potter’s son, Albus, is nervous that he might end up in Slytherin. Harry, however, sees no shame in being in Slythering, but, he says, if you really don’t want to be in Slytherin, the house will listen to your suggestions. After all, he was nearly put in Slytherin himself – or was he?
Finally, no I am not claiming that I can make better movies than whoever was behind BvS and Suicide Squad. That doesn’t mean I can’t critique their works.
Each of Rowling’s characters have a wide range of both positive and negative traits and do both good and bad things. It’s what makes her characters seem so real.
The sun reflected off the snow
It was as bright as it was cold
The wind howled as it brought up snow
A sight prettier than gold
There are a lot of people who accuse Rick Riordan of ripping Harry Potter in his series Percy Jackson and the Olympians. After all, the two stories have a lot of similarities. But they also have some interesting differences.
