Non-representational is what you guys are talking about by abstract; such as this painting by gerhard richter
abstract and non representational are the two most easily confused terms in visual language

I think you failed to see the complexity of the actual situation. For 'a kids book' it has serious world development.
I mean, hermione pretty much outlined it. Harry said voldemort killed cedric, then the students spent all summer reading about hows that's bullshit. I mean, imagine yourself in that situation. You go to a really high esteemed school and something happens and this one kid who 'saw it' says it was Osama Bin Laden or some allegedly long dead murderer.
Then you spend all Summer reading about how that's a lie.
That's why harry is being a dick weed. He has the complete and total stress of the entirety of the government against him, even though he's totally right. Plus, what teenager doesn't have confidence issues?
As for dumbledore, he couldn't do much beyond what he did. He told thew students straight up cedric killed voldemort.
He couldn't get into how/why voldemort was revived because that'd reveal the connection between harry and him to everyone, which could be fatal as explained in book 6
Also, harry didn't realize it was an emergency contact item until after sirius died.

That entire book was a fiasco, not a single character in book 5 was the least bit intelligent.
I'm not saying the series was bad, I love the series as a whole, but that book had a serious drop in quality in terms of consistency, plot, and development.
there's three readily available ways for the ministry to prove whether or not someone is telling the truth, legilimancy, truth serum, and the pensive, all things the ministry is shown to have knowledge of and are within their power to use but decide against it.
Dumbledore doesn't even TRY to protect his or Harry's word and instead of fighting for his position on the high court when accused of being senile he decides to try and act senile by saying to go for it as long as they don't remove his face from the chocolate frog cards.
The Prefect system she outlines in that book doesn't make sense, it's brought up multiple times, she spends several pages going over it, it's fraught with inconsistencies, and never does it end up playing any role in the plot or any major character development ever.
Harry didn't have 'confidence' issues, he was just a total asshole to everyone from beginning to end of the book.
Dumbledore only said Cedric was killed by voldemort, Harry fought him, he escaped, Satan's back. he never explained the situation in detail to anyone and neither did Harry until more than 5 months after the fact. If Dumbledore had half a brain he would've got the full story out right away instead of waiting through several months of people shit smearing his name and reputation without bothering to respond. The reason he didn't tell everyone about the connection between Harry and Voldemort via his scar is because A. that never becomes relevant, and B. when he does fudge discredits it saying that there's no evidence curse marks work that way.
All the other Harry potters are very nice pieces of literature and are fairly well thought out children books or no but the fifth one is just bleh.

My experience with blacksmithing is about 3 swords so I'm never going to call myself a blacksmith but I will say that I'm experienced enough to have an opinion.
My swords were fairly plain, (2 gladius', an attempt at a broad sword and about 5-6 'trials' that I wouldn't count as swords) but from those I can definately say that they get easier as they go, as per obviousness, but I imagine that styles would work much the same way, so doing alot of fantasy swords would make you ab etter blacksmith allround but would make you much better at fantasy swords than historical swords.
So some people might specialise and would be able to charge more for the signifigantly higher quality of their makes in their own niche but someone who doesn't specialise would get all sorts of jons, so it evens ,out.
Of course he may not specialise this might just be a collection of his works of this style.

I don't sell 'swords, my quality would never be enough anyway.
But if you want to make your own then it's suprisingly cheap to set up a backyard forge, I used the cut-and-remove method for the basic shaping of the sword then used the forge to make the shape more precise as well as placing the fuller, then I finished it by hand.
It cost me next to nothing but I already had alot of the things I needed, it will almost definitely cost you less then you think if you consider that alot of it can be re-used to make more without paying for them again.

i just make knives for people who need knives that wont break when you hit them with a hammer but every now and again someone wil ask for a sword like once a guy asked for a red damscus katana it took me a month to get it just right but i did it and it passed the strength and hardness test and the sharpness test didnt even register becuase the tatami mat never fell but it was in two i just never stop until i get it perfect inside and out
#84 - epicalania (07/03/2014) [-]
Allright, so your 'specialty' would be knives, you, as you just said, do all sorts of requests, I imagine most blacksmiths will take most requests, but I also feel safe to say that you are alot better at knives then with swords, although knives may be intrinsically easier than swords, I don't really know.

Alright, but if you want a sort of proof, try making two copies of something, make one in a style you've done before and one in a style you haven't, the style you've done before should be easier
My points seem pretty obvious to me but tell me if you want me to explain it further.
