On the one hand, it'd be fucking amazing to see sci fi elements integrated within this particular universe, but on the other, I believe it'd spoil the fun and, as you say, the sense of wonder. Magic as we know it in this universe might be limitless, and giving it an explanation would put boundaries to it, and fuck up the whimsical part of it

That said, just imagine the story of a muggle discovering magic by accident and then harnessing those powers via scientific understanding, technology and gizmos. Then he uses those powers to become a hero, all with the Ministry trying to take him down and avoid muggles figuring shit out. That'd be fucking sweet, man

I think involving technology and futuristic elements into Harry Potter you'd just get Warhammer 40K

also, in terms of accuracy it's basically a dual between a pump shotgun and a fully automatic rifle

Well, I mean, I've only seen the movies, but in them they're constantly reacting and deflecting magic lightings and shit. I'd say that if they've got time to react to that, deflecting bullets doesn't sound that far fetched. I really only see a wizard getting shot if it's done really stealthily and by absolute surprise, otherwise the wizard will always have the upper hand by either disarming or disabling the guy, or so I think

I also don't think muggles would even stand a chance against the wizard world, as it's clearly stated in the movies they're op as fuck. In fact, I think the whole reason for the wizards to not give a fuck about muggle shit is because it's way too primitive to be useful or dangerous for them. If Voldemort had won, no doubt muggles would have been wiped out from existance

I agree with you tho, it would make for a great story. Maybe she will never bring herself to write about the muggle holocaust, but there's always fanfiction for that kind of shit

If you can react to something, its slower than a bullet. Most bullets reach you before you even hear the gunshot. Fact is, you cant react to getting shot, you have to start moving before the trigger is pulled.

I think (and its been a while) that the wizards that deflect lightning and shit use spells that deflect other magic and shit, not bullets. It would probably work only once or twice, but an American muggle-born witch/wizard would decimate in the American Ministry of Magic as an Auror. like, damn.

In the end, it's all about how the author writes. As a fan of sci-fi and fuck yeah humanity stories, I'd hope that she would give science a fighting chance, but since it's a children's story which tries to preserve a sense of wonder about magic, I doubt she would. Which is fine, she should definitely stick to what she knows, I mean, have you read the casual vacancy? It was awful.
