"Babbity Rabbity and her Cackling Stump "

Babbity Rabbity


Still to come...
(offiste link full synopsis from

Jo's comments about the story:

'"Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump" is the stupidest title ever written by man or beast...and of course, when I wrote it, I never... I had not, at the point when I gave Ron that title, I didn't imagine for a second that I was actually gonna write the story.  And I did have this, there was this kind of margin of time when I could've... where I knew I was gonna write "Beedle the Bard", and the book wasn't published, we were still editing.  I could've gone back and change the titles.  And I really like the idea of keeping those titles then finding out what those stories were, so...  But "Babbitty Rabbitty" was a challenge.  But I did get there, and it's a story about revenge, one witch's sort of cunning way of revenging herself from persecution, from Muggle persecution. '  (PC1)
