Question of character banner


A couple of community members suggested that one reason why people may hesitate to write about characters of color is that they don't have a good handle on those characters' backgrounds, personalities, and experiences, either because the characters are not sufficiently fleshed out in the books, or because the writers don't feel confident writing outside of their own ethnicity/culture due to a lack of familiarity.

In response to that, I'm launching an occasional series of Character Discussions. The idea is to get to know these characters better, to share ideas and speculation, to ask questions, and to spark people's imagination.

I thought we could start off with Blaise Zabini, for no particular reason. :)

The Harry Potter Wiki entry on Blaise contains a good summary of what's known about the character, as well as some speculation based on those facts.

Here are some possible ideas to get the discussion started:

- Where do his ancestors come from? How long has his family been in Britain?
- Why was he sorted into Slytherin?
- What career do you think he went into after Hogwarts and why?
- Do you agree with the Wiki entry, which claims Blaise was arrogant, disdainful, confrontational, contemptuous, disrespectful, and difficult to please romantically?
- What do you think his name reveals about him, if anything?

Feel free to ask your own questions as well, and to make any additional remarks you'd like about Blaise Zabini!

Rounding out our Diversity Awareness Month recs with TWO very special pieces of art. A master list with all of this month's recs and proper acknowledgments will be posted tomorrow, but in the meantime I'd just like to thank our intrepid reccers for making this event possible, and all of the authors and artists who contribute to diversity in the Harry Potter fandom. You're the best!

The (De)Briefing by [livejournal.com profile] karasu_hime (NC-17, art)
Featured character: Kingsley
Summary: Kingsley debriefs his client
[livejournal.com profile] alisanne’s rec: If the pairing isn't enough to short circuit your brain, then the perspective that the artist uses surely will. Throw in the little details like Kingsley's earring, the way he's watching the proceedings, and the fact that they're doing it on a desk (definitely a bullet-proof kink of mine), and you'll see why this is one my very favorite Kingsley pieces.


Blaise

Incubus by [livejournal.com profile] thilia (NC-17, art)
Featured character: Blaise
[livejournal.com profile] alisanne's rec: This is one of the sexiest versions of Blaise I've ever encountered. His glowing eyes, luscious hair, and stunning body, not to mention the way he's looking at Percy, who's clearly under his thrall, makes this stunningly gorgeous piece one well worth checking out.

Seas Between Us Broad Have Roared by [livejournal.com profile] tamlane (Explicit, 4K)
Featured character: Blaise
Summary: "We both know you were hoping and praying Potter would get called in tonight so you could come to me and get what you really need. What he won’t give you. So can we drop the charade?"
[livejournal.com profile] ely_baby’s rec: Tamlane writes the hottest het smut you'll ever find on the internet (I challenge you to find stories hotter than hers). This one story in particular is amazing. A scorching hot encounter between Blaise and Ginny in the toilet of a club. The sex, the relationship, the emotions. There are so many layers to this story and so many things that we gather from Ginny's thoughts and silences. It's mesmerizing and beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.


P.S. Tomorrow is the last day for posting fills for our Prompts of Color Event!

Midnight Affair by [livejournal.com profile] vilgsacolin (R, art)
Featured character: Blaise
[livejournal.com profile] ely_baby’s rec: This is rather old, but it's definitely worth a rec. The look on Ginny's face and the position of the couple and Blaise's face and his hands under her skirt... Hmm.. The composition is wonderful and the technique is so unique and clever to show the different contrasts that you'll love it.


P.S. Don't forget about our Prompts of Color Event, running until 31 October!

Dreamless Sleep by [livejournal.com profile] mab (Explicit, 3K)
Featured character: Blaise
Summary: Blaise isn't into Draco really, or blokes for that matter, but the idea of getting away with taking what Draco has offered while he's not aware of it … that's irresistible.
[livejournal.com profile] nia_kantorka’s rec: Blaise is an arse in this story. Nevertheless it was very captivating and I couldn't stop reading. Others might want to have a look as well.
