you should watch the My Immortal web series because it features a QPoC!Harry and PoC!Hermione
but also because it would have been one thing if they simply took My Immortal and acted out the absurdity — instead, they created a wonderful story that’s ultimately about friendship while still keeping a lot of elements from the original fic
oh and Enoby is more than a ~Mary Sue~ and it’s beautiful
the funny thing is, i don’t even ship drarry, but the my immortal drarry are adorable. and it’s not even that i don’t like enoby, she is her grows and becomes a semi-lovable character by the end of the series.
This is an amazing reworking of the Harry Potter story, casting Hermione in a pivotal role. Enoby is our kind of ridiculous Mary-Sue self-insert that lets us get close to the magnificence of Hermione. Ebony is our Nick Carraway to Hermione’s Jay Gatsby. Except for all her dramatic explosions Enoby is kind of sincere… she’s just really bad at expressing it.
Hermione is given all the space she was never allowed in the books to be great and to have a sensible head on her shoulders, whilst the boys just do their thing in the background.
And the best thing? Rather than have the story be some faux tale of the power of self-sacrifice, this web series hammers home the importance of friendship and co-operation and of accepting people for who they are.
Seriously, I cannot recommend this enough. What started off as something to giggle at and enjoy as a delicious piece of meta actually ended up moving me quite a lot. During Hermione’s last speech I had goosebumps and a genuine lump in my throat at that last scene.
