I reread the Potter books and I really loved the flashbacks in HBP. I found the whole Merope story fascinating. But after rereading it I found my mind going down some rather nasty paths.

Marvolo doesn't seem the type to just sit back and let the Gaunt name die out, does he? He's so incredibly proud of his heritagage I think the idea of the family name dying out would be horrible to him.

But there aren't any Gaunts left to keep the line going. Except Merope and Morfin.

And there's only one Gaunt who can carry children.

...I mean...I don't think I'm the only one who's thought of this.

Merope seems so terrified of her father I can't help but wonder...

Hello! I am new to this community! I love Merope Gaunt, and though this might not be a theory.. I figured, I could ask other Merope lovers for help?

I want to play a girl similiar to Merope[Since, I can't play Merope in any RP on GJ or anywhere else :(!!!!] Any tips to how Merope should be roleplayed out? Like how to flesh out her personality?

Hi! I don't know how I didn't get around to joining this place sooner. I love Merope.

I come offering a fic and an essay...

Title: Meliora
Author: Marauder
Rating: R
Pairings: Merope/Morfin, Merope/Tom
Summary: Pregnant with Morfin's child, Merope longs to escape to a life with Tom, and a better world for the child she hopes will be a girl.
Warnings: Really depressing, incest, dead deformed baby.

Perhaps there were Muggle healers who could fix her eyes, and she would have a pale pink bathtub with lavender soap. Her bed would have a satin quilt, with light and dark blue squares, and she could be Tom’s pretty wife forever.

Essay: Why I Like Merope Gaunt

* * *
Apologies, but it really took me THIS long to figure out why fandom's repeated chorus of "She RAPED him!" annoys me. She did; I know she did, there's no denying it. But it wasn't until this discussion thread that I realized the exact source of my discomfort with the case of Merope Gaunt: read more...Collapse )
