Redemption

Het onderstaande komt uit een recente Web chat die J.K. Rowling had op Bloomsbury.com nadat Deahly Hallows was uitgekomen. Fans konden hun vragen insturen, waarvan JK er een aantal behandelde. Ik heb de interessantste stukken eruit gehaald, want ik vermoed dat bijna niemand dit gelezen heeft. Absoluut de moeite waard om even te lezen! Jullie gedachtes hierover? Het volledige Web Chat Transcript is overigens hier te vinden.

SPOILERALERT!

Lechicaneuronline: Do you think Snape is a hero
J.K. Rowling: Yes, I do; though a very flawed hero. An anti-hero, perhaps. He is not a particularly likeable man in many ways. He remains rather cruel, a bully, riddled with bitterness and insecurity – and yet he loved, and showed loyalty to that love. And, ultimately, laid down his life because of it. That’s pretty heroic!
Het maakt voor mij een boel goed om dit te lezen. Omdat dit nogmaals benadrukt dat hij ook voor haar uiteindelijk een held is. All hail JK voor het schrijven van zo'n gecompliceerd karakter!

Tineke: Did teddy grow up living with his grandmother?
J.K. Rowling: Yes, Teddy was raised by Andromeda.
Die arme Andromeda heeft het maar zwaar gehad met al die slachtoffers in haar familie. Pfff...

Jaclyn: Did Lily ever have feelings back for Snape
J.K. Rowling: Yes. She might even have grown to love him romantically (she certainly loved him as a friend) if he had not loved Dark Magic so much, and been drawn to such loathesome people and acts.
Dat had ze dus beter níet kunnen zeggen, want daar gaaaaaan de Fanfics! :)

Laura Trego: Was the absence of Snape's portrait in the headmasters office in the last scene innocent or deliberate
J.K. Rowling: It was deliberate. Snape had effectively abandoned his post before dying, so he had not merited inclusion in these august circles. However, I like to think that Harry would be instrumental in ensuring that Snape’s portrait would appear there in due course.
I'd like to think so too. That would be sweet. Dat zou beter zijn dan zijn zoon Albus Severus noemen...

Camille: How is George getting along without his twin
J.K. Rowling: Well, I don’t think that George would ever get over losing Fred, which makes me feel so sad. However, he names his first child and son Fred, and he goes on to have a very successful career, helped by good old Ron.
Ochèrme die arme George... :(

Pablo: What is toadface umbridge doing now
J.K. Rowling: Glad to see you like her as much as I do! She was arrested, interrogated and imprisoned for crimes against Muggleborns.
Gerechtigdheid! She got it coming!

Why Fred and not George? van de msnbc.com website
“I always knew it was going to be Fred, and I couldn't honestly tell you why,” Rowling said. Rowling guessed most people would have expected George to die before Fred because Fred was the ringleader, George the “gentler” twin. “Fred is normally the funnier but also the crueler of the two. So they might have thought that George would be the more vulnerable one and, therefore, the one to die.” She didn’t make her decision because it was easier to kill one twin over the other, however. “Either one of them would have been terrible to kill,” she said. “It was awful killing Fred. I hated that.” She hated it, but doesn’t regret it. “The deaths were all very, very considered,” said Rowling. “I don't kill even fictional characters lightly”

What the future holds voor Ron, George, Ginny, Kingsley, Harry, Hermione en Luna
Ron joined George at Weasleys’ Wizarding Wheezes, which became an enormous money-spinner. After a few years as a celebrated player for the Holyhead Harpies, Ginny retired to have her family and to become the Senior Quidditch correspondent at the Daily Prophet! Kingsley became permanent Minister for Magic, and naturally he wanted Harry to head up his new Auror department. Hermione began her post-Hogwarts career at the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures where she was instrumental in greatly improving life for house-elves and their ilk. She then moved (despite her jibe to Scrimgeour) to the Dept. of Magical Law Enforcement where she was a progressive voice who ensured the eradication of oppressive, pro-pureblood laws. Luna ended up marrying (rather later than Harry & co) a fellow naturalist and grandson of the great Newt Scamander (Rolf)!

Ik lees geen interviews meer, ze maken me alleen maar pissig... Zie je, ik vind dat Rowling hele goeie karakters creëert maar ze daarna wel echt verpest. Voldemort bijvoorbeeld, had ze zo'n fantastisch complex karakter van kunnen maken maar in de plaats daarvan portretteert ze hem opeens als niets meer dan een psychopaat. En zo zijn er wel meerdere dingen...
