Essay: Harry Moffer (Almost) Gets Cancelled

Last month, I spent a total of TWO weeks writing the story “Harry Moffer Really Needs to Give Up and Go Home”. In that story, Harry continues to be overshadowed by various events taking over the school. Plus, he gets a part in the school play (more on that in another blog post) and finds out that not only did he have to deal with his secret past coming out, but he has to deal with the possibility of having to leave Wyvernwing and returning to Branford (which he hasn’t been to since the first book).

That, and his siblings Henry and Hattie are also doing their own thing. But that’s a given.

While Harry struggles to come to terms with Snibblepore’s betrayal, the other students form social justice groups and fight each other instead of tackling problems in the school. Plus, issues such as racial diversity, LGBT rights, and the debate about school are addressed, but the results of those debates are not satisfactory.

And I’m not even going to mention the part where Harry is kidnapped by an insane former classmate who sent him three threatening letters and another former classmate is angry with him for leaving Branford without telling anyone.

That, and an animal known as Barney the Cancellation Bear finds Harry and forces him to return to Branford, effectively cancelling the Harry Moffer Parody Project.

And let’s talk about the cancellation, because I had said that the project was eight books long (the seventh book was split into two parts and will address the Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows movie split), plus the much-hated epilogue that will inevitably take place after the Project is over.

So there you have it. Now if you would excuse me, I have another project to work on.
