I have been reminded some other pages were still missing from the site – Formal Rants and also Fiction. This is further evidence of how scatter-brained I am. I thought the rants were lost at first, but I fortunately found a backup.
A few panels on Harry Potter at PCA/ACA reminded me briefly of the old arguments in the Potter-Taran Treatise. I didn’t think of it at the time, but if I were in another discipline, it would be the genesis of an article. Such musing will have to wait until Book 7, when a more complete case can be made. Given the events of 6, I think almost all of my original points still stand. The only argument that has been weakened somewhat concerns Draco, who turned out to be not completely evil after all – and now more closely resembles Ellidyr, the Prince of Pen-Laurau, another troubled lad.
