House Elf thoughts

Imagine, instead of the weirdly gross CGI house elves of the Harry Potter films, a kind of linty, vaguely tinged child. It has enormous features, comes up to the mid thigh of most adults, and whispy, soft hair. It looks like a child made out of your dryer lint, sometimes with faces lined with age but not transformed. This was my idea for redesigning the house elves into something less grotesque and comical, into a race you can look at and go “yeah ok i guess these are kind of like fairies a little bit,” but I was thinking about it just now and like. House elves cannot disobey their family, they want the approval and affirmation of their family for doing a good job. They’re not allowed to speak their family’s secrets or speak ill of their family, and being set free is an Ultimate Punishment. A house elf who does something bad or wrong will punish themself. They have their own magic that is powerful and enough unlike the magic of wizards that it can cross their wards but they don’t really, canonically get to use it? Unless it’s Dobby after he’s been freed.

To me this sounds an awful lot like an abused child???? An entire race of abused children and im really pretty upset with this revelation i mean its always connected that the house elves were an oppressed race but these specifics of their mistreatment are Hella Gross.

Last thought I remember thinking was just that it’s so unfair. Like being benched before I’d even got to play the game. What was your last thought?

- I don’t know. I just remember feeling… Relief.
