I'm in the process of writing a fic that has some basis in reality. My hero is investigating a supposed curse around the time of the Millennium. At the time of the incident, there were protests from the Wiccan community and I want to portray this in my fic.
My question is: How do you think Wiccans would have been perceived by the wizarding world? The Wicca religion (for want of a better word and I really don't want to offend anyone) was formed about sixty years ago. Do you think the Potterverse characters would hold it in any esteem? Or perhaps they laugh at a Muggle attempt to be magic?
I'm also considering whether Wicca is practised by Squibs. Any advice or ideas would be welcome.
