Everyone is encouraged to participate in the Roundtable Discussion. Please refer here for the Roundtable Discussion guidelines.

Topic: Dumbledore: Kindly or Manipulative? - proposed by clear_stream18

Discussion may include, but is not limited to:

• Master manipulator or well-intentioned do-gooder?
• Were the sacrifices he made worth it, and were they his to make?
• How much of a turning point was his sister’s death? Without it, would he still have turned from Grindelwald eventually?
• How has your opinion of him changed after Deathly Hallows?

This is the last Roundtable, folks, so get your opinions in while you can!


If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to email the mods at azkatrazathome@gmail.com or cassie_black12 at cassie_black@hotmail.co.uk

Topic: Wasn’t That Fun – The At Home Con Closing Party - proposed by daddybear716

Instead of a Prison Break Ball, we have decided to host a party to celebrate the coming conclusion of the Azkatraz at Home Con. Here you can:

- Share descriptions of what you would have worn to the Prison Break Ball.
- Share photographs of yourself in HP costume.
- Share the music you’d like to play at the party.
- Share your favourite drinks or party food.
- Share party anecdotes or describe yourself as “Person at the party most likely to…”
- Play virtual Never Have I Ever, with commenters responding *drink* or *not drink* as appropriate.
- Generally hang out with fellow At Homers and chat about any topics that, inadvertently, haven’t been covered in our Roundtables. Whatever takes your fancy – have fun!

Remember there is still one more Roundtable to come at 21:00GMT and the Closing Ceremony at 24:00GMT

Hope you all have had a great time!!!– From your mod team *pops cork*

Harry Potter roundtable XXIII: All Is Done: The Future of Fandom With the Completion of the Series

Everyone is encouraged to participate in the Roundtable Discussion. Please refer here for the Roundtable Discussion guidelines.

Topic:All Is Done: The Future of Fandom With the Completion of the Series

It’s a commonly voiced view that fandom is dying because the series is now complete. Do you think that’s true? What’s your opinion on the way forward for fandom?
• Can fandom overcome the marriages/deaths of its favourite characters?
• How will we define ‘canon’ in post DH stories?
• Are next gen characters the only viable solution?
• Is the true point of fandom that we can be as imaginative as we want?

Crack Drabbles, Round Nine!

44. Hang on, you're a WHAT?
45. EVERYBODY is gay.
46. When all else fails, try a Weasley
47. I can't believe Jo forgot to mention this in canon!
48. When Harry put his hand down Malfoy's trousers for the first time he discovered that Malfoy gelled more than just the hair on his head.

Harry Potter Roundtable Discussion XXII: Book Canon Vs Movie Canon
Roundtable icon
aah_mod
I hope you've been enjoying azkatrazathome!

Everyone is encouraged to participate in the Roundtable Discussion. Please refer here for the Roundtable Discussion guidelines.

Topic: Book Canon Vs Movie Canon suggested by switch_heart

Some ideas to get you started:

What effect, if any, do you think editorial decisions made changing facts in the movies has had on the story overall?

Are the changes significant enough for the movies to develop their own canon?

Is there scenes in the books that were removed in the movies that you believed were central to the main storyline that movie only fans are now missing?

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to email the mods at azkatrazathome@gmail.com
