    I think a staff may be a bit too cliche.

    Perhaps a spell casting dildo would work in its place.

    What weapon does pass?
    a sword is seen in every-bloody-fanfic.
    Daggers are nice, yetalso very common?\
    Staff is quite rare, yet you think sux.
    Maybe a gun with enchanted bullets?
    Bow?
    a pen enchanted with cruciatus to whomever touches it?

    They aren't rare.

    Merde!

    Maybe, if you can fit in how Harry managed to master archery. I have a bow, and dude, those things take forever to get good enough not to worry about shooting your sister with. Bows are too hard to use, they're not practical. That's why Europeans swiched to muskets.

    How would Harry write with it?


    For a weapon, I'd say either invent something relatively new (like Second Chance at Life's golden gloves) or just stick with a wand.

    Or give him a robotic arm that shoots lazers. That never gets old.

    What do you mean show you a fanfic with a staff? Have you ever read a super powered harry fanfic? Just about all of those have Harry getting a staff or have his wand have the capability to turn into a staff

    They're not shitting you, look for super Harry, or search Harry + elemental. They'll almost all have staffs.

    Write what you want to, but you did ask the opinion, and the consensus is.. omfgnohedidn'tjustsaythat.

    A bow might work, but overall anything that'd take that long to draw, aim, fire, and the target's apparated away, shielded, disarmed you, or something else

    That story with him being trained by Merlin and having his staff named Hermy made me laugh. It was so stupid!

    God, please don't mention that utter fucked up story.

    She thinks it's cute, its pathetic and stalkerish. Then he gives her some of his power and SHE becomes all strong and annoying, yet does dick about the evil ppl.

    Yes...that story was pathetic. As are many of the "staff" stories. Few manage to even get near good, though a few are. They're everywhere in Super!Harry stories, though I suppose it makes sense if he's really powerful, even though it's cliche. Maybe in EoH I'll have him try to channel a bunch of magic (powered by a few of the 12 spirits of Druidic Mages) and have his wand nearly explode on him, prompting him to modify them to be more efficient and channel more energy.

    Harry Potter and the Phoenix Staff

    Harry Potter will become and Elemental and leave the Dursleys forever. He has become much more powerful and learns to use the Phoenix Staff that Dumbledore has given him.

    Wizarding for Dummies

    SPOILERS FOR BOOK 5! After his fifth term at Hogwarts, Harry begins to learn more of his past, and what he is becoming. A staff, a bite from a clown doll, and new powers. I have a little trouble with plots...kindof like Matrix Revolution. Has been edited!

    Harry Potter and the Staff of the Phoenix

    Harry is feeling a sudden outburst of magical energy. Adding to that wierd thing, he receives a staff in the middle of the night which has ancient writing on it which no one can see but Harry. Please R/R.

    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/838841/1/

    There. Three of them I was able to pick out of the search engine just by the titles and summaries alone and I was not searching strenuously. And you know when there is a couple who advertise it that there is another hundred who have it somewhere in their story, I know I have read many more but they are usually crappy so I don't alert it and nothing in them are memorable enough for me to remember their names.

    the problem i find with staff fics are that they're used by HORRIBLE authors as an excuse to give him more magic. I use staffs because I like the imagery, not to say that I have harry use his staff for every little summoning charm of course, that gets kind of redundant when he apparantly has so much power that he needs a staff...

    Staffs are actually pretty common I just don't want to dig through my favourites where I save all the FF I read. The new 'staff' Is a multicored wand so you better be hopping on that bandwagon if you want to do something like that. I would personally make like a ritual that magically (duh) increases the compatibilty and modifies the wands inert magic enough so it is no longer Voldemorts brother or something similar. Don't fix what ain't broken and I personally dislike most multi wand/staff stories for the exception of the stories by SilverAegis and that is just because he's one of my favourite FF.Net writers so he gets a certain amount of leeway.
