    What fictional characters do you suspect of being autistic?

    What characters in books, movies, comics, etc. would you suspect of being autistic, even though they aren't directly identified as such? Mine are: A) Sherlock Holmes. Even in Doyle's original stories, he's identified as being impatient with others, obsessed with certain topics. He will...

    What Hogwarts house are you in?

    I'm a Ravenclaw. I really like the fact that Ravenclaws aren't just limited to smart people, they can also be very creative and really passionate about the things they like. For example knowing a lot about a certain topic or subject they really enjoy. What about y'all?

    Will they make any more Harry Potter movies?

    I hope so if JK Rowling writes any more books. Daniel Radcliffe's only 28, he's not too old to reprise the role that made him famous. What I don't want though is some rubbish remake/reboot of the original series with somebody else as Harry, it genuinely wouldn't be as good IMO. And his famous...
