Some Ways Rowling Could Have Made HP a Little Different
Item #1: What else could Harry have pulled out of the sorting hat in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets?
*Salazar Slytherin's Semi-Automatic Slingshot: Unfortunately, although
semi-automatic, Slytherin's slingshot would have been no match against
the Basilisk. Besides, there were no rocks handy for ammo, so Harry would
have only had a few chances at hitting the snake.
Item #2: What other ways to get to Hogwarts could have existed?
*The Hogwarts Jet Plane: The Hogwarts Jet Plane seems to be the most
logical way anyone should go anywhere, especially such advanced people
as wizards and witches. However, since flying cars had enough trouble
landing just a little off course, a plane would undoubtedly be even harder
to land on Hogwarts grounds and would damage much more than a wand, if
an accident occured.
These are just a few things that J.K. Rowling could have put into her books. She, of course, chose the material that is present in the books now, but it is fun to ponder the possibilities of Harry Potter's realm of magic.
