ஐ Briansgirl (Book Queen)ஐ (briansgirlkate) There is a resemblence between Professor Revalvier and Ms Rowling. Only the author can tell us for sure, but it sure looked like it to me. They had the same initials and Prof Revalvier was a literature professor and author of wizard stories for muggles.

Shirin (shirin2009) | 245 comments and if u look at revalvier's pic in the book,u can see some similarities between she and jkr.

ஐ Briansgirl (Book Queen)ஐ (briansgirlkate) The artwork done in the JP books is done by the author. So if he wrote Revalvier after JKR, he surely could have drawn the character that way as well. I know when I read it, I figured he'd modeled the character after her.

Shirin (shirin2009) | 245 comments i agree

Shirin (shirin2009) | 245 comments i wonder how does jkr feels about this pro.revalvier???

ஐ Briansgirl (Book Queen)ஐ (briansgirlkate) Her agents are aware of the books but she hasn't read them. She never reads any HP fanfiction. Period. Doesn't want it to influence her own works. So I don't know if anyone who has read it would have told her or not. I'd hope she'd feel flattered. :)

Shirin (shirin2009) | 245 comments well, i undrestand her.if i was jkr and had created greats stories like Harry Potter seies,then i didn't like to read fan-fic books about MY stories...because..looking at the world that i,my self had created it and now someone else is changing it...well,it would make me sad...
but not that i don't like g.n.l's stories...i'm just truying to describe jkr's feelings...

ஐ Briansgirl (Book Queen)ஐ (briansgirlkate) If you think about it from a creative point of view.... she doesn't want anyone to give her ideas that might end up in something else she'll write in that world. Odds are they won't come up with what she's thinking of already, but you never know. She doesn't want anything else to influence her, either way (wether she likes it or not). So I can see her point in not reading it.

Shirin (shirin2009) | 245 comments but i'm very very curios.what does she think about revalvier and their similarities?if i was her...well,then i liked it.

ஐ Briansgirl (Book Queen)ஐ (briansgirlkate) I'd like to think she'd be flattered.

ஐ Briansgirl (Book Queen)ஐ (briansgirlkate) If you like Technomancy, check out the author's official website. He has a small Technomancy school book for you to download and read.

Aegine | 359 comments Ok I just got to the first class James has with her and this is what Rose says about her. "You know, she even wrote a few novels herself, a couple of decades ago, although they were mostly marketed to Muggles under a made-up name...I think the problem was that it was, if anything, rather too much of a success. The Ministry ended up getting involved and there was quite a hoo-ha. Apparently, publishing true accounts of the wizarding world as fiction in the Muggle world is a violation of the Law of Secrecy, although the Wizengamot never convicted her of anything. She was stripped of most of her royalties, which explains why she ended up here, teaching."
