Avatar ImageDraconity says: I go through this a lot with my friends. It's pretty silly. Love the comic.Avatar Imagematt_toeller420 says: This is funny and true for most. To bad most kids today don't choose to read more.Avatar ImageI love my Spectra Specs says: Haha, this is great xD And I disagree that most kids don't read...I'm 15, and just about all of my friends love reading. I actually have a huge stack of books on my desk that aren't mine, my friends just give them to me and demand I read them so they can talk about them with me later.Avatar ImageFiniteincantatum says: Yes, I agree, since there are a few number of kids who bother to read books.Avatar Imageykaitot says: Huh, never thought of it that way. Haha!Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: HahaAvatar ImageHalfbloodPrince08 says: :DAvatar ImageEllorgast says: I'm with the "it just looks better!" girl. I mix and match book and movie canon in my costumes. It's all good to me.Avatar Imageiris lily says: Awesome! i have this argument with my fruend all the time!Avatar Imageradishraven says: frankly I prefer bronze. books are WAY better than movies and though I love hp movies, I don't rewatch them the same way I rerererereread the books!Avatar Imagecloethebelatrixlover says: whoops. i didn't even realize that there were different colors. Just goes to show how smarticle I am about the books ^.^Avatar Imagekiwimci says: I like both versions to be honest doesn't really matter to meAvatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: The Ravenclaws in my family wear blue and bronze and proudly display their EAGLE mascot - not that silly raven adopted by the movies. Avatar ImageChaseT says: This is so great Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Haha! I think they both look great!Avatar ImageMiss.Weasley says: haha! Well naturally the movie is better, nonetheless nothing compared to the books! <3Avatar Imageariadne_29 says: lolAvatar Imagemaimiaa says: i don't mind the silver, but i prefer the bronze. :D Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: i don't mind the silver, but i prefer the bronze. :D Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: So true!!!!Avatar Imageiceymoon says: i don't really have a preference, the silver is just more readily available for stuff to purchase. i wish they did make more bronze/blue Ravenclaw merchandise! however, the comic itself was... not really funny. xD i'm sure some Leaky Ravenclaw members can come up with a much more clever or witty ways to make this same point, lol.Avatar ImageBless_the_children says: Blue and bronze FOR THE WIN! DFTBAAvatar Imagenealiezealbie says: hooray! someone has immortalized the plight of ravenclaw's everywhere in this lovely comic! ravenclaw house's colors are BLUE and BRONZE!! :)Avatar Imagejacket says: Ha! this is so perfect! I've noticed that they almost never wear the cloaks anymore in the movies, it bugs me.Avatar ImageLoopeyLooneyLuna says: that's great! I'm actually knitting a book-canon scarf with blue and bronze!Avatar ImageA Chocolate Frog says: Amen!! Blue and bronze with the eagle mascot all the way!! Books trump movies, every single time. :) Go Ravenclaw!!Avatar Imagehalfbloodprincesss says: i love it! personally, I like the way the way the blue and silver looks but maybe that's just cause I'm a Slytherin! :)Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: what does bronze actually look like?Avatar Imagesilverkacy says: I didn't realize it was different. After all those trivia questions when I answered blue/silver and raven, my friend who was reading the first one didn't corrrect me. Maybe I read the books longer ago than I thought.Avatar ImageGene L. says: Ravenclaw's colour is BLUE and BRONZE, face it, we keep it to the book because they come first.Avatar Imagepygmypeach says: So true and so sad - I was reading SS to my class the other day and I overhead two kids: "I like the movies so much better." "Yeah, me too." It really let the wind out of my sails. Avatar ImageAceba says: hahaha!! love it!! :0)Avatar ImageFresca says: That is a funny Cartoon! I say that the books came first, and what JKR decided for the school colours should count more than the movies. The cartoon shows how seriuosly some of us take canon!Avatar Imagelizzyrc says: I'm normally sooooo loyal to the books but yeah for me silver does look better! Besides you can never find a good bronze yarn!Avatar ImageBara says: Too cute.Avatar ImageAnnaGrace says: Haha, I love it! Although now I'll feel awkward when I wear my blue-and-silver scarf. ;)Avatar ImageRinny says: I obviously thinks the books are much better than the movies, but on this topic, i do prefer the look of blue and silver to the look of blue and bronze; bronze just isn't an appealing color to me, and i don't particularly feel like it goes well with the blue. even though technically blue and bronze wins, i still pick blue and silver.Avatar ImageLil says: I actually don't think of the movie colors as blue and silver but dark blue and light blue, and I tend to wear these with bronze/antique gold accessories when I want to dress up in my house's colors. But I'm planning a Rowena Ravenclaw cosplay and the thing is: how do you define "bronze", exactly? At best, I'm looking for metallic brown fabric... the other houses have it easy! ;p (Hate the movie crow mascot though)Avatar Imagesuzyweasley says: Bronze looks way betterAvatar ImageWON_TWO says: How very colorful!
