After an exciting new year of NOTHING HARRY POTTER RELATED, we now will kick off the new year by doing more things having to do with Tyler Potter, the Harry Moffer parody series, and even finding a way to do the short all-in-one story called “This Story Just Makes No Sense“.
So yes, it’ll be a new year, but will anything on this blog make any sense? I don’t think so!
Now that I have your attention, I’m happy to report that this is the four-year anniversary of this blog. And since we’re on that topic, I’m happy to say that the story “This Story Makes No Sense” will be starting back up again, but instead of a Harry Potter parody, I’m taking this story in the opposite direction.
After a summer filled with alternative fan fiction and blog posts that contained people complaining about how the Harry Potter books ruined their lives, we’re getting back into the swing of things by having the bloggers talk about how their lives were influenced by Harry Potter and what they could have done differently if someone handed them the Harry Potter books. I know that there are scores of people out there who have never heard of Harry Potter and we need to keep it that way. The Harry Potter phenomenon has outstayed its welcome and it’s time for the franchise to die so that other franchises can take its place.
With that, we go into another new era, where Harry Potter (and his fans) will be dragged through the mud and bashed while poking fun at them. Here we go!
Here’s a graphic novel which is an entertaining yet cautionary tale against the evils of Harry Potter, but only tamer. A man named Tim Todd has given us this parody, which you can actually buy from his website. He says that if we aren’t careful, we could unleash all kinds of evils in the world.
The story is about a boy named Ari Potiphar, who is a huge fan of the Hairy Polarity series. He and his best friend, Minnie Manger, often spend their time reading the Hairy Polarity books. Ari’s parents, who are rightly concerned for their son’s safety, warn him to stop reading the books and stop hanging out with Minnie, and to spend time with his Christian friends. Ari disobeys them and he and Minnie are eventually sucked away into a world where the evils of witchcraft are all too real and the kids are forced to battle for their souls.
Before the story ends, both Ari and Minnie learn a huge lesson about being careful of what to read and to listen to their parents. Plus, the author is saying that it’s better to trust Jesus and reject evil.
Maybe it’s best if we listened to our parents and the pastor of the church.

Things just keep getting complicated for Harry Moffer.
In the last chapter of the Harry Potter parody, he, Pun, and Hildegarde ended up trapped in the sand dunes when the cruel school janitor forces them down the hill. Their fellow classmate, Jill Roseberry, is the only one who finds out what happened to Harry and she raises the alarm in the neighborhood.
But what is Jill’s ulterior motive for doing that? Was it to punish our heroes for “rocking the boat“, or to stop them from finding the Magician’s Crystal?
The chapter is called For Some Insane Reason, Tiny Ponies Are Featured In This Story. Jill realizes that Harry Moffer is missing, but no one has called the police or reported him missing. She determines that she has to rescue him and his friends, even if the rest of society doesn’t want to.
Jill chases a tiny pony into the sand dunes and after rallying the neighbors through her gift of guilt-tripping, the search party goes into the dunes to rescue the Grim Trio. They had better move quickly, because Harry, Pun, and HIldegarde are in grave danger…

Chapter 8 of the story has Harry and his friends beating Domro Wilfy and his team in a game of Kettle Hockey. Yet true to the parody, this does NOT earn Harry the respect that he deserved; in fact, the opposite happened.
Groundings, Pun getting spanked so hard that he ended up in a wheelbed, and angry students pelting the Grim Trio Larry Dobber books.
But that wasn’t the worst of it.
Harry, Pun, and Hildegarde were banned from attending class, so they hid in the library. (And wherever the trio went, trouble usually followed them)
Well, not much to start off here, just the fact that my new story is beginning and now I’m going to have to sit down and write it out.
I’m now on Chapter 1 of the story and as soon as I have that done, I’ll be updating several other blogs. The chapter is called “The Insignificant Boy“, which is a play on the words ”The Boy-Who-Lived“. Because Harry Moffer is NOT a wizard; in fact, there is NO magic in this parody.
Also, in this chapter, Harry lives with his very useless relatives, the Dourfeys, who re just as ugly and pathetic as they can be. Harry avoids them like the plague every chance that he gets. He had no idea that his destiny is just around the corner.
Well, I know you’re all thinking what we’re going to be doing now that 2012 has come and gone. Since we’ve absolutely gotten over Harry Potter, here’s some of the things we’re working on for this year:
