So, first of all, this amazing fan-made Beauty and the Beast/Harry Potter trailer:
Anything with Emma Watson in will clearly always be a Hermione AU opportunity. I wish I’d never given up video editing as a hobby now, but moreover, it got me thinking about what a hideous relationship this would be.
First of all: no way do I take this video seriously. It just got me thinking, yeah?
What would Voldemort – a pretty 2D evil villain – have to do to be forgivable? Probably impossible, he saught genocide and tortured peeps for fun. If you watch the trailer again, those clips of Voldemort actually showed expressions of vulnerability. It made me think more about how some romance stories look at forgiving someone for terrible sins and helping them to be better.
So if Voldemort stopped killing people and learned the error of his ways, what would you say he’d have to do/change before you’d fall in love with him, despite his track record for murder and torture? Is it even possible for you? It must have happened somewhere in history…
What characters have you forgiven for heinous crimes? At what point could you never forgive a character, despite their depth?
For me, I could never forgive Cersei Lannister or Severus Snape, who deserve whole posts in and of themselves to talk about why.
Nowt stranger than folk.
