Harps and Nephews and Malfoys

Awoke at 8:30 AM surprisingly. That could have been due to the fact that The Nephew was squealing somewhere nearby. Later on, I saw my parents off to wherever they planned a vacation, turned around, and mentally shot The Nephew in the temple for having a lovely habit of spilling beverages purposely. The table is sticky with lemonade. Watched three Disney musicals (all on my own accord, rather than The Nephew's) which were The Little Mermaid (my favorite Disney musical of all time), Annie (the new version. I can't watch the old version--the little girl is ugly), and Beauty and the Beast (which immediately reminded me of katiethewriter).

Curious. I read through an AU fic the other day. It went through an altered version of HP and the Philosopher's Stone. When I came to the part concerning Fluffy and the harp that had been left behind by Quirrell, I wondered for the first time--why the flipping fuck did he bring a harp? A harp. A giant, frigging, harp. I don't think it an absurd notion that quivering, little Quirrell would not be fit enough to carry that sort of instrument around with him. Perhaps I am being silly, for they are wizards; and he might have charmed it to be small or transfigured it to be a stuffed bunny. Still, why was it not a simple banjo or kazoo? Eh.... Maybe he simply had a passion for the instrument.

Been observing The Nephew as a model for a young Draco Malfoy for another eternally unfinished fic. The Little Brat doesn't shut up, turns red and bawls when he hasn't his way (more of a Dudley trait, really), and is slightly smitten with Harry Potter. Perhaps The Nephew fancies him, too.

General observation: Looks like Harry, act like Draco. Conclusion: The Nephew is the long lost love child of Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy.

*grins uncontrollably* I was thought of! *does a happy dance* Gee, I've got a lot of dances, don't I?

That whole harp thing IS curious! Why did Quirrel pick a harp of all things?!?

And good LORDY! If my mother wasn't asleep, I'd be squealing with laughter... General observation: Looks like Harry, act like Draco. Conclusion: The Nephew is the long lost love child of Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy. *snort* that's so funny to me!

"Why did Quirrel pick a harp of all things?!?" I'll tell you why! It's that dratted Dumbledore! He gave the harp to Quirrell--that's it! Always sneaking around...always sticking his crooked nose into everyone's business. Er...that's a different rant entirely. *saves it for another day*

"that's so funny to me!" Oh, really? Good! *waves I-made-Katie-Snort flag* I wave too many flags. *looks down at flag box* Sigh.


Dumbledore does stick his nose in the way quite a bit, doesn't he?!? I wouldn't be surprised if we found out that Dumbly was helping out the bad guys just to get a good laugh! *shakes head* Damn that wacky headmaster and his twinkly eyes and obsession with lemon drops. galesmystique and I were discussing a little while ago how that man has gotten quite annoying in fics... I suppose that's a different story entirely tho...

*grins proudly and holds her hand over her heart as the I-made-Katie-Snort flag waves* You do have a few flags, don't you? Almost as many as I have dances, it seems... If not more... *grin*

"I wouldn't be surprised if we found out that Dumbly was helping out the bad guys just to get a good laugh!" That would make a hilarious fic, actually! *shakes head* I wouldn't be terribly surprised if it ended up that way in the canon. ...creepy old man! ...always sneaking around in the night with little boys and their invisibility cloaks.

I expect Quirrell bought a harp because it's got a base and therefore easy to just stand up and enchant to play music. I mean, how the hell would you enchant a flute to play? It would look really wierd. And with a harp, you don't have to worry about it stopping even briefly.

Also, harps are traditional when it comes to music that makes people sleep. (Jack and the Beanstalk)

"I expect Quirrell bought a harp because it's got a base and therefore easy to just stand up and enchant to play music." True. Though he might have bought a CD player for cheaper!

"And with a harp, you don't have to worry about it stopping even briefly.

*shakes head and grins at Eclipse's insight.*


Yes, but I can't really imagine Voldemort fancying a CD Player. And they are in short supply in Hogwarts anyway! (actually, they don't work in Hogwarts! Sorry, my random pedantic side coming up again, I know you didn't mean it particually!

Actually, most of my insights come while reading your journal! So if you can keep having little muses, I can see if any more insights pop along! It's nice to have insights for a change!
