The most complete saga of alternate worlds is Harry Potter. J. K. Rowling got me when I was 10 years old never to let me go. She knew how to take me by the hand to get to know a new world and trap me in it. Her ability to adapt and represent something in her books is magnificent, it is truly one of the reasons why I decided to work in the entertainment world. Thanks, J.K.

You are absolutely right, it is very well thought out and the level of detail that I apply is simply spectacular.

I can't tell you how much I love HP, I love it and I can watch it a thousand times if I have to. The only series that I think comes close to the level of Harry Potter is Lord of the Rings.

I still respect her as a writer, but her controversial statements over the past few years have definitely lowered her stature in my eyes.

Thanks for her work, no thanks for literally everything else. It's so sad to see the author of your favorite saga ever become such a controversial figure. All that money must've gone to her head.

I think that J.K. Rowling's controversies are completely unprofessional. She should be more careful about what she says in public, and how it could reflect on her and her books.

Rowling's controversies are nothing but a ploy to get attention. She's always been a very self-centered person and this is just another way to get people to talk about her now that Harry Potter has been over for more than 10 years.

I love and respect her work as a writer because I grew up reading the books and watching the movies as a young bookish, fantasy-loving child. However, growing up and getting to know her views on real issues, the respect I once had for her are delpeting and withering away at a fast rate.

She is brilliant. Her mind is brilliant. I have so much respect for her. I basically grew up with Harry Potter and I must say it's already a part of me now. J.K. carved Harry Potter into my being.

I love Harry Potter! I will continue to support it. Although, I have a problem with some of J.K. Rowling's stand with regards to social issues.

Though I am thankful for her for creating the world of Harry Potter and giving millions of fans around the globe a reason to believe in fantasy, hope, and having something in common with each other. Still I am vastly disappointed with her archaic views on some topics, the fandom and the world of HP has become a world of its own independent from her and all I can say is we owe her nothing.

I may no longer agree with J.K. Rowling's views in life. But I am thankful that she made this world for us fans to share. We continue to love the actors that portrayed the best characters.

Exactly. It's just that she had her fair share of ups and downs. I still like HP regardless.

Hi Googlers,
I had a question for you all. Do interviewers give their feedback and rating (or score) before your “package” being sent to HC? And if there is a bad or lower rating in one of your interview, does the “package” still get sent to HC knowing that it may not pass (60% possibility).

Vent: I am tired of reading articles about how to deal with micromanagers and toxic bosses.

I promise no managing up is going to really fix how shitty this feels.
