Q: HP Fiendfyre: is that the spell Grindelwald + Voldemort used?

Kuroi RyūIn the 5th book, Voldemort creates a big flame that acted like a snake. In Grindelwalds Crimes, Grindelwald used Protego Diabolica to create those monster creatures nearly destroying Paris. Is that the same spell Crabbe used?

Q: What was the point of making those mega-budget movies of The Lord of the Rings when they were nothing at all like the books?

Miles G.Note: This is neither a "rant" nor a review. I'm trying to give some context for my question. I first read the books in the later part of the 1990s, beginning as a pre-teen who had no idea what LOTR was. I just saw and picked out the first book from the bookshelf at home and was instantly hooked,...

Q: What errand did Gollum think that the hobbits have in Mordor with the Ring?

AvierSince he doesn't suspect that they are going to destroy it, just like the Dark Lord doesn't suspect this, what did he think? Why else would these mysterious hobbits be traveling to such a place, with the Preciousss, if not to destroy it? Gollum is very anxious about Sauron getting it back, but do...

Q: Science fiction stories about deep space colonization of lifeless worlds?

Vogon PoetI’m searching for current human colonization science fiction stories which do not involve any alien species at all - including vegetation - and the colony is not magically linked to earth or another support system such as “the Federation”. If “Space: 1999” had not introduced alien encounters, tha...

Q: Manga/manhua where MC became a god of a game world

Apple BoiNot really sure where to start. But this sort of shut in gamer received a game from an unknown package. He later started the game and found out he saw like a god figure to the people. He can only give one prophecy to the people inside the game per day and can preform miracles by spending some kin...

Q: Why is Dane Mechnikov alive in "Annals of the Heechee"?

ArneIn Frederik Pohl's fourth novel of the Heechee saga, Robin Broadhead encounters Gelle-Klara Moynlin together with Dane Mechnikov. It is mentioned that he was on the same expedition as Klara when they got stuck in the black hole. I remember from an earlier book that Wan and his companion rescued ...

Q: Camelot/Arthurian paperback fantasy/romance about a failed attempt to find the Grail

MaxIn 1997 I read a paperback adventure romance where a Knight of the Round Table, or an aspiring one maybe, fails in his quest to find the Grail because he is waylaid and bewitched by probably Morgan/Morgana. I think his name was Sir Drian/Dryn, which would make him a minor blip of a character in M...

 
I'd bid a couple quid just to see if you get a steal haha
 
SQB
Seems fake, though.
 
Fake or not, if you get it for £5 it's worth the risk? Though I don't know the best way of selling on
 
SQB
I think the draft had "Starkiller" instead of "Skywalker" for quite some time.
 
It certainly was Starkiller for a while aye
> no background information about this script.
 
9:55 AM
Aren't there 300 different revisions anyway?
 
Ah, you'd be buggered trying to resell it with no information on it I think
 
SQB
Looks like user 9589 has an automatic bid on it, though, going by the timestamps.
I'd go for something else, like a nice film poster for instance (not Star Wars).

Q: Was the Horcrux destroy order a coincidence?

MBEllisI just realized that the order the Horcruxes were destroyed was the same as how they were created: The diary, the ring, the locket, the cup, the diadem, Harry, the snake, and Voldemort himself. Does this have a significance? The chances for this happening are very small. It's not hard to imagine ...

Q: Manga where the main character researches magic for ages in a cave

DominikDragoI'm trying to find a manga where mc is researching magic in a cave. He has a familiar and can't die because both of them drink something so he can research magic for longer... His familiar didn't want to drink it but the potion fell into his/her drink. After years have passed he finally goes outs...

Q: How will Denis Villeneuve's Dune handle the internal analysis of Jessica?

DistressIn the original Dune by Frank Herbert there is a scene where Jessica is analyzing everyone seated at the table, looking through their words and seeing what they truly want. Is there any way Villeneuve can accurately describe this scene? I've watched his previous movies and he seems to avoid inter...

Q: 80s/90s cartoon about scifi mountaneers

Vilx-Inspired by this thread - I remember watching a cartoon in my childhood (mid 90s)about a group of people who battled some baddies (I think) in a very mountainous terrain. Their main gimmick was backpacks that could shoot harpoons simultaneously to the front and rear, stretching a rope across the ...

Q: Starfleet Fleet Size Any explanation for the discepancies?

ThomasAs it seems there are quite different numbers in terms of what number of losses really hurts starfleet and also the fleets of the other empires. In the reboot it sounded like the klingon force that got destroyed was very huge, the same as with the fleet from starfleet that was also destroyed by t...

Q: Why didn't they officialize the Enterprise to be a functional time travel machine as of season 1 episode 19 of TOS?

GBManWith the slingshot theory around the sun, any spaceship with warp speed 8 can travel backward or foward in time. So, ok, it's broken and it's what happens when writers have no clue to end an episode, but it's canon now... so why has it never been used after?

Q: Is 12 inches anything to complain about?

J. MiniIn chapter twelve of the fifth book, Snape assigns the following: "Homework: twelve inches of parchment on the properties of moonstone and its uses in potion-making, to be handed in on Thursday." To memory, the next chapter shows Harry and Ron complaining about both this and the obviously trivi...
