to be an Auror or not to be an Auror?

well we all know that in a good fanfic harry hates the Ministry.
we all know that Auror work for the Ministry.
question is do you think he will work torwards being an Auror or get another job.

I dont think he will be Auror more of in a independent fic a wand maker
a dark fic most likely a wanderer or a merch for hire.

In my opinion, Harry shouldn't become an Auror. First of all, it's not very likely that he got an O in his Potions OWL (this is a HUGE pet peeve of mine, I just remembered). So unless Snape is convinced to lower his standards...yeah, not bloody likely. Second, like you said, he absolutely loathes the ministry, especially after what they did to him in book five.

Either a Quidditch player, we all know that he has the skills to be one, or maybe a DADA professor. After he learns all about the subject of course, I hate stories in which Harry suddenly teaches DADA with no basis, after all, his first two years in that class were horrible, he learned nothing. He might be a good dueller, but that's not all DADA is, which many authors seem to forget.

Aye, i hate him as a teacher of DADA based off of simply his DA work.


When he said Auror in book 5, I swear I vomited alittle. Choosing to be a person that enforces the laws of a corrupt government is utterly stupid. I assumed JKR wrote that to entrench Harry firmly on the light side.

Canon would be so much better if he went fully dark, but "Good" Harry is too marketable to ever go dark =(.

I'm personally inclined to believe that he's going to die by the end of the series, probably in a last-ditch sacrifice to destroy Voldemort once and for all, and will thus have no job at all. Disregarding that, I think that he's probably rich enough that he doesn't have to work if he doesn't want to, and will become even more so if Sirius left him anything in his will. But no, I certainly don't believe that Harry would ever work for the decadent Ministry.

He won't be an Auror, if anything he might be an Unspeakable as they have no ties to the ministry but other than that I can see him either being a DADA teacher or a Quidditch player, tho he should just take a sabatticial from the wizarding world

Yeah that's a problem I have with almost all of the Harry stories where he has a job. He's supposedly from a rich old family, The Potters, and is evidentally tich enough to have a trust fund for 7 years of boarding school, why in the blue hell would he WORK if he didn't have to?

I think that he would work just to prove to himself that he isn't just loafing off his parent's money. And that he might just be bored of doing nothing while all of his friends are. I know that I would feel bored and lonely if I had nothing to do.

that argument holds up until you consider the following.

He's rich, he'd never be bored, constant woman, go anywhere, do anything, etc.


I've known alot of rich people when we lived in NY, and the only one's who say they're working to prove themselves, are the ones who usually can't afford to live extravagant =)

While the ones who were truly rich, went yatching with a bunch of cute girls who liked to drink, ya know

this is why he should be a wanderer and see the world because if he has money he dosent have to worry and if he doesnt have money then he still doesnt have to worry
