Before I clean up the general examples, I have a question.

If a large number of specific fan works are outdated by the same piece of canon information, can the works be listed together (by name) as a \"general\" example despite the prohibition on general examples?

The probable answer to this is \"no\", but it could result in a large number of mostly-duplicate examples.

I realized a difference between Jossed and Outdated By Canon: if a fan work has x happen than the official work has it happen in a different way but similar to what fans predicted, it\'s outdated without jossing (which is about fan theories).

I see a reason to keep general examples then. For Ron The Death Eater which has a similar issue, every general example cites at least one work.

Okay it says on the bottom of the page description; Please, try to list fan work names and avoid using general examples, as those go to Jossed.

And yet the examples on the page are spilt between General and Specific.

Am I the only one noticing the dissonance between that?

Regarding the comments about Blaise - is he canonically black in the books as well, or just the movies? Because that might be worth mentioning, as the movies and books are not in the same canon.

He is black in the book, and was properly played by a black actor.

I was actually not aware of that, cool.
