I'm pretty sure Mudbloods is a registered trademark of the Harry Potter Franchise, but you still have my vote regardless

Wahahaaha! Looks like Voldemort gave up on the taking-over-the-world business.

Heh, I literally just had a Harry Potter watch-all-the-movies-in-one-day weekend. I have to vote on this, just because. Just. Because.

Funny concept, but this should really be on black or green. ;)

Also, copyrights aside, it'd be cool to do a death metal version with a dark mark inspired logo.

It's supposed to be a wand.

You didn't even try to do anything artistic. And I think there may be some problems with using the term. J.K Rowling sued a fan-fiction writer -- FAN-FICTION = NO MONEY -- for using aspects of her novels.

Actually, J.K. Rowling never sued any fan fiction writers, and it's been stated several times that she encourages fan fiction and wizard rock (yes there is such a thing as wizard rock and it is awesome). She DID sue Steve Vander Ark for trying to publish his Harry Potter encyclopedia, which used a lot of J.K. Rowling's work without adding much to make it legal.

I am concerned that the term "mudblood" is copyrighted by WB, and they crack down pretty hard on that.

On a side note, why did the artist use Hermione's wand for this shirt? Shouldn't it be Draco's or even Voldemort's.

I'm going to hate myself for admitting I know this . . .

The artist used Hermione's wand because she's the most famous "mudblood" in the series. Draco is a pureblood and Voldermort is, I believe, a half-blood (like Harry).

Harry isn't a half-blood. Both his parents were magical. Mudblood is the derogatory term for Half-Blood, so Voldemort is one as well as Hermione. But yes you are right about the want thing. :P

But Harry's mom wasn't from a magical family.

How can you guys tell that this is Hermione's wand anyway?

Harry's a half-blood by dint of his mother being muggle-born. Even though she was a witch, she wasn't from a wizarding family (oh sweet jeebus, I am so embarrassed for myself right now).

Mud-blood is not a slur for half-blood, btw. Mudblood is a slur against all muggle-borns. Hermione isn't a half-blood, either, as neither of her parents were from a wizarding family. She was all muggle blood.

"by dint of"

I don't hear that turn of phrase enough.

Still - how do people know that it's Hermione's wand there?

Aye, agreed on your first point. As to the second . . . honestly, I have no idea whose wand that is; I can't recognize them by sight. I was assuming the other poster knew what he or she was talking about (maybe from watching the movies a lot?) so I withheld comment on that and just spoke about what I know.

But still... a wand is a wand. In the books you've got descriptions like however many inches of such-and-such wood with this-type core, but really, you can't tell the difference in the movies and even less so in an illustration like this.

By the way, since you're acting embarassed about knowing Harry Potter stuff... I'm not ashamed of it. My guilt is with the Inheritance cycle. Terrible books, those. But I enjoy them anyway.

You made me curious, so I googled it: Hermoine's wand

You can dig around on the site and find Harry's. Comparing the two, the illustration on the shirt definitely seems to resemble Hermione's more so than Harry's.

I haven't read those. Didn't they make the first one into a movie sometime back?

(and referring to your other post that I'm too lazy to quote, not enough people say "by dint of" anymore)

Re: The Filthy Mudbloods


I'm pretty sure that people think it's Hermione's wand according to the movies:
http://www.alivans.com/custom/cart/edit0.asp?p=96031&gclid=CNXw9ry9rJsCFQzxDAodKy2qCw

Now if the movie got it right, that's a different story.

Also, is it sad that I find this discussion more interesting than most of the others? At the very least there aren't people getting upset here... unless the topic of which house is best arises.

I think Gregory House trumps Milhouse. But there are others, hmm...
