I need to get all the pain and negativity out of my system and apparently my friends and family have had enough. So after having had annoyed the hell out of everyone, I decided to follow the fad and use internet as the dumping ground for all my hating activities.
You know when you invest your time, energy and emotions into something and it doesn’t quite turn out how you want it to (quite like a child gone astray)? My disappointment arises from a series of similar events.
I ignore my responsibilities. I ignore my work. I stay up till three in the hope of cramming just one more episode before bed. I laugh and aww at all the right moments and what do I get? Possibly the worst finale in the history of bad finales. Oh, and I am talking about ‘That ’70s Show’.
What’s worse? I am reminded of the worst heartbreak I have yet suffered at the hands of fiction.
Go ahead and call me an extremist, but I cannot and will not approve of ‘Harry Potter and The Cursed Child’.
I had a couple of theories about the-book-that-I’d-like-to-forget: 1) that JK Rowling grew sick of all the demands and decided to shut us up for once and for all. 2) to experiment if we’ll gobble up anything with a lightning bolt scar on it.
There are a million reasons as to why I have such a problem with the plot and the characters (I have a list), but let’s just talk about scientific facts, shall we?
The main plot device? The Time-Turner. My understanding of the time-turners based on The Prisoner of Azkaban was that it didn’t really change anything except to buy us more time and increase the potential of us screwing everything over. I figured there were no alternate realities, everything that will happen if someone goes back in time, already has happened.
According to Pottermore, however, it is possible to change the past. Only, it comes with a lot of repercussions. One of them that when you come back into the present, your body ages the number of years you time-travelled into. Not something that happens in the play, does it?
Rowling admitted to have gone “too light-heartedly into the subject of time travel” as time-travelling leads to too may plot holes and flaws. Why, O, why would you reintroduce it?
But hey, it’s JK Rowling. She is forgiven seven murders (sounds creepy in english but is a completely non-violent proverb in urdu).
And no, don’t ask me to stop whining. It’s like asking a cow to stop mooing or a king to stop kinging. This is my thing.
