the fandom reactions to the “Two New Harry Potter Books!” headlines are making my head ache. I think one of the worst things about the internet is that it provides news to people who don’t really read, so a bunch of people are skimming the headlines but not the actual articles. And then expressing opinions based on that.
“Call me crazy, but Harry Potter books that aren’t written by JK Rowling just don’t do it for me. I’m not trying to buy some fan-fic.“
“So I know all the new Harry Potter books are a total money grab, but that doesn’t mean I’m not gonna immediately buy them all. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯“
They’re exhibition catalogs! Honestly, I’m so deeply tired of HP fandom spreading misinformation because they don’t bother to fact check or even read beyond a news headlines. It’s pathetic.
