Yes, the Potter stuff, but only the book series, not the film series. Can't really find anything.The Harry Potter stuff rather than anything else she wrote?
Nitpicking plot details like "magic time travel makes no sense" or "Hagrid should have been kicked off the grounds for having a dragons egg!" are things i'm less interested in. I want something that discusses if Voldemort was a good, well done villain but not with silly reasons like "he has no nose, therefore he is a bad villain" (which was something real that i actually read, lol) or discussing how Harry could be made a better protagonist. Somethingl ike that. Thats the best I can explain it right now.How would you distinguish between "an article with merit discussing its faults, strengths and weaknesses" versus "nitpicking"?
After taking your suggestion, I found the first chapter of the Christian re-write of Harry Potter. I can't decide if it's a genuine 'fan' fiction project or the brilliant work of a troll. Either way there is a lot of work still to convert.Also, 'is Harry Potter just a rewrite of Star Wars' might get some interesting hits as well.
It would be interesting to see what you come up with. I know some writers like to refer to other project notes - ie, Indiana Jones - to get an idea of what the creators were specifically aiming for.So this thread has made me realize that I have been using the wrong sort of language in my google search. Finally found some. Lets see if any are any good.
Yeah, i stumbled upon an article discussing that while ago by accident. Pretty interesting. But Star Wars is just a rewrite itself.Also, 'is Harry Potter just a rewrite of Star Wars' might get some interesting hits as well.

That's a standard trope. Not specifically HP or UU/DiscworldChildren who are born with magical abilities must leave ordinary society, for both the good of themselves and the non-magic population, to stay at a secretive school and learn the art of wizardry.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/InternatIn the former Soviet Union similar schools were introduced; these sometimes are known as Internat-schools (Russian: Школа-интернат) (from Latin: internus). They varied in their organization. Some schools were a type of specialized school with a specific focus in a particular field or fields such as mathematics, physics, language, science, sports, etc. Other schools were associated with orphanages after which all children enrolled in Internat-school automatically. Also, separate boarding schools were established for children with special needs (schools for blind, for deaf and other). General schools offered "extended stay" programs (Russian: Группа продленного дня) featuring cheap meals for children and preventing them from coming home too early before parents were back from work (education in the Soviet Union was free).
There are ballet books? Interesting.The idea is even in most Ballet books (substitute Ballet for Magic).
When I went through my Pratchett phase in the 80s (I think I got through the first 15) I thought he was very good at 'ripping off' most of the fantasy genre - including specifics relating to particular books.I'm curious if anyone's publicly accused her of ripping off Terry Pratchett. Hogwarts seems to parallel the Unseen University pretty closely, and if Equal Rites had a modern setting then it would pretty much be Harry Potter.
That's nonsense though.though I hear the criticism that she essentially just rewrote Star Wars in a different setting quite often
The first two especially. He does a good take off of the Dragon Riders of Pern. In the later books it's more distinctively his only world. The early books give a Mediaeval 14th C & 15th C impression, but later it seem a much more 18th C and 19th C style of world.I thought he was very good at 'ripping off' most of the fantasy genre
Very famous.There are ballet books?
