James Steward Is Better Than James Potter: The Realization Was Inevitable

Move over, James Potter! There’s a new James in town! With our switchover to NoMajNet.com, it’s high time we recognize James Steward, co-founder of the greatest wizarding school on earth, as the best James that J.K. Rowling ever penned. Below you will find several inarguable reasons why Steward is better than Potter.


James Steward Is an American Immigrant

In 1620, James Steward made the choice to cross the Atlantic and put down roots in America. The wizarding world has been far too British-centric for too long now, so this decision to reside in a different country is quite refreshing.




He’s a No-Maj

Anyone can be cool with magic. James Steward is a total boss without a drop of magical blood in him.




Steward Wasn’t Killed

A Dark sorcerer attacked his home in the middle of the night, but unlike James Potter, James Steward was not killed.

And Neither Was His Wife

Yeah… Isolt Sayre wasn’t murdered protecting her children. She comforted the crying babies in their cribs, still very much alive.

He Is a Dessert Connoisseur

Cranberry pie is his favorite.




Steward Founded a Wizarding School

What did Potter do? Make a map?


So there you have it. A concrete list of reasons why Steward is the James of our dreams and the only James we will ever need.

I was 9 years old when I discovered the magic that is “Harry Potter.” I am a proud Hufflepuff and exceedingly good at eating, reading, being sarcastic, and over-thinking small tasks. Since I spent too much time worrying about the correct way to write this bio, this is all I was able to come up with before the deadline.
