Speaking of time, in this episode Hannah and Marcelle dive into recording from two different timezones! The results are PRETTY GOOD!

  1. RE: sorting of Scorpius (and other kids). A theory that I subscribe to is that the sorting hat does not sort kids on qualities but on opinions. As in, kids who wish to be brave, or value bravery a lot, will get sorted into Gryffindor. Not because the are brave, but because they value it as a quality. Hermoine by all rights should be in Ravenclaw, Neville is not brave in the beginning of the stories. But it is something they both value a lot. So Ravenclaws aren’t nessecarily smart, they just value knowledge and academics. Hufflepuffs value loyalty and Slytherins value ambition and position. Another theory that I like is that the hat sorts the kids based on the things they need/want to learn of be. I really like both these theories, because it doesn’t judge the qualities that the kids have, but their plans and ideas what make a good character.

  2. I weirdly read this book not as a novel and not as a play… in my head, it felt exactly like when I read fanfictions… I can’t pinpoint why. If I cared enough I would read it again.
