    Nope, wands are superior in every way.

    Because the very idea is retarded and people know it.

    Random thought of the day:

    What if Harry Potter was a harem anime?

    The only thing that would need to be changed is raising Hogwarts learning age from 11-18 to 17-24.

    Also, making the plot more episodic would help a lot.

    Just leave out the abusive anime girl. They get really annoying really quickly.

    I think she'd be more tsundere. I was thinking of Hermione actually,

    Good point. I guess I mentally categorized Hermione as the shy, nerdy girl. Though in reality Luna would be more shy than her.

    Well... it being Japan I don't think they'd be too inclined to change the age.

    I realize its nothing new, but a GOT/HP crossover where Harry is blasted through something in the Department of Mysteries and is spat out in Westeros. In the idea I'm currently kicking around, he's stuck at the Wall, conscripted like all the rest of the miscreants of his age into being sworn brothers of the Night's Watch. He bumps Samwell Tarly out of the running for position of Aemon's steward and starts learning more about the history of this place and blah blah I guess he's going to do something once he can reclaim his wand(it was left behind by whomever black brother found the delirious boy in the freezing conditions of the North and subsequently rescued him). Harry wants to survive and escape long enough to get back to where he was found, in the meanwhile he can attempt to do wandless or rune based magic.

    Option 2 is he winds up beyond the Wall and recruited into Mance's campaign. He'd probably keep his wand there and use it to blast apart a few Others creeping on the wildlings he is sheltering with. Might actually make it all the way to Mance himself once word of his magic spreads.

    Option 3 is that the Veil deposits Sirius in Westeros and our lovable Marauder gets up to hijinks across the Seven Kingdoms. Being an adult wizard, he'd have more knowledge at his disposal, plus his animagus form to escape dire straits/weather conditions, probably catch up with Nymeria or somesuch and thereby get involved with the Starks if I felt like being convenient.

    Most of this has come to me as I started writing this post. I'd only really had Harry at the Wall jotted down over the past couple of nights of writing. Dunno if any of its good, but it is where my head is at for the moment.

    I like the Sirius idea, but I wouldn't go with the cliche option of having him meet the Starks. What if instead you had him land in Dorne? I'm sure a man of Sirius' talents would do well there. Also, he and Oberyn would be total bros.

    Sirius falling in with the Dornish and living it up their Royal Court. Tales spread across Westeros of the sorcerer and his talent with his...wand.

    An idea for a WoW/HP crossover that’ll probably never get finished.

    Basically Harry is summoned to Argus, the home world of the Eredar. His summoners are killed, leaving him with no way to return home. He begins learning magic under Archimonde at the Conservatory of the Arcane in the hope that he will both discover a way back to Earth, and become powerful enough to defeat Voldemort but before that can happen, Sargeras arrives.

    Almost all of the Eredar become demons, and Harry must flee the planet with the Prophet Velen and the few remaining uncorrupted “Draenei.” From here, the story would basically follow Harry and the Draenei as they escape and try to find a new home, all the while being hunted by the Burning Legion.

    We’d see Harry participate in such events as the colonization of Draenor, the fall of Shattrath city, and the surprise attack that led to the Draenei taking command of the Exodar before it crash landed on Azeroth.

    No clue really as to what might come after that, but I only have about 1/4th of a chapter written up on this so it’ll probably never come to fruition regardless.

    He shows up after the Rebellion, by the time Daenerys is an adult and the Martell's are ready to take their revenge with Sirius' help the Tywin's got his own court wizard. Turns out Harry came looking for his godfather.

    Speaking of GoT, I've always been keen for a good crusade against the slaving kingdoms of Essos. It's a fic that wouldn't demand Harry lose his wand permanently in order to foster conflict, and you could drop him in pretty much whenever you wanted before Astapor fell. I'd probably have him wash ashore (how he reached this point isn't important, so long as he didn't jump through the Veil) only to be found by slavers. His wand would be taken as a curio by whoever found him, and he would be sold on before he had recovered enough to really take stock of his situation. The first arc would then be Harry fermenting revolution in whatever city he ended up in, and finding out who captured and sold him so he can track him down to retrieve his wand. His education would see him put to work as a house slave, until he stood up to a slaveowner/got lippy, and was thrown into some certain death situation or another.

    Thankfully, his animagus form is a goddam polar bear, allowing him to kick off a riot in short order.

    I'm not even a huge GoT fan yet I want to read that, and not purely because of all the puns a bear animagus form would allow for.

    A simple conversation between the seemingly innocent Professor Riddle and his young student, Harry Potter.

    "Tell me, Harry. Did you ever hear the tragedy of Herpo the Foul?"

    "No?"

    "I thought not. It’s not a story Professor Dumbledore would tell you. It’s a dark legend. Herpo was a Dark Wizard, so powerful and so wise he could use magic to create life… He had such a knowledge of dark magic, he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying."

    "He could actually save people from death?"

    "Dark magic is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural."

    "What happened to him?"

    "He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself."

    "Is it possible to learn this power?"

    "Not from Dumbledore."

    I'm gonna be real, the potential story just changed from a Deus Vult wizard led crusade, to finding out how many puns I could sneak into it before it became...unbearable.

    C'mon, you barely made an effort there.
