Well, when Prince Charming shows up in all those fairy tales, how else would he get around? Remarried! I really love the series. Jack is great, who knew Boy Blue could be so cool, who knew the adversary would be that character, don't cross Totenkinder, Big B and Snow White get married, and much more.

'Prince Charming' is a stock convention not an actual character. Which is actually interesting when so many people say the old princess fairy tales were sexist. The Princesses are more developed and interesting than the princes- to the point where many princes aren't even named and are just referred to as 'Prince Charming'.

It's just a pet peeve of mine. Innocent things being drug through the mud. Sad

Whose Harry Dresden?

And I'll second the Wizard of Oz "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain."

I loathe "The Wizard of Oz." It has to led to many myopic views about how life in the Midwest is really like.

Nope, they don't have any of that in Kansas. Just midgets and candy land towns with big swirls painted on the four ways. Laughing

Well, there are tornadoes. Plenty of those.

Wizard of Oz never bothered me, but I didn't grow up in Kansas. I grew up in Iowa, home of The Music Man. No wizards in that but there was a con man. I guess that's something in common with the Wizard of Oz. Very Happy

Nice Laughing

As for Harry Dresden, he's a wizard who works as PI in Chicago. He lists himself in the phone book under wizard and attracts lots and lots of trouble. I recommend the first book, Storm Front by Jim Butcher.

Severus Snape - he manages to hide his true loyalty from the entire wizarding world until his death (including Voldemort, one of the most accomplished Legilimens/mind readers in history).
And don't forget about Molly Weasley - "NOT MY DAUGHTER YOU WITCH"

Not sure if The Warded Man counts as a wizard. He simply knows magic wards. But if it does equate, I'd be tempted to put him on my favorite wizard list.
