...regarding fanon vs. canon going on here in [livejournal.com profile] painless_j's journal. If you're at all interested in meta discussion... it's pretty interesting ;) (I'm posting as [livejournal.com profile] mightierthan, although that's pretty obvious from the icon.)

I just saw the damnedest speculation on one of my Yahoo!Groups.

The claim? Narcissa Malfoy is a muggleborn and thus, voila! Draco must be the Half-Blood Prince.

o_O

This point is clearly sated a couple of times (along with the cheerful announcement that the book is coming out on the speculators birthday, hooray for giving away information to identity theives) and one or two people react with slack-jawed disbelief.

Including me, although I was polite enough to do it in private email.

The justification for this bizarre idea?

1) There are, apparently, rare exceptions that allow Muggleborns to become Death Eaters (according to an interview with JKR)

and

2) The author of this absurdity just knows it.

I find it interesting the lengths people will go to in order to try and promote their favorite characters. I'm a fan of Snape. He's a remarkable asshole, but we get these intriguing little bits about him so I find him fascinating, despite the fact he probably would have reduced me to tears on a regular basis if I'd had him for a teacher.

There's a lot of things I'd like to see about Snape and believe about him, to make him less of a sadistic prick. On the other hand, I'm not going to completely rewrite the reality of the HPverse in order to make Draco Malfoy more important than he is already.

...I'm really curious how in the world the girl got the idea that even if the Blacks had somehow produced a muggleborn, Malfoy would have accepted such a thing in his wife.

Argh.
