The Second Movement — II
Ernie and Althea disagreed on many things, but none quite so much as who was responsible for the opening of the Chamber of Secrets. And although their arguments rarely stepped beyond playful, this was not one of those times.
Utterly convinced that Harry was the Heir of Slytherin – following a rather public display of Parseltongue at Lockhart’s Duelling Club – Ernie had decidedly taken up his stance against Potter and, consequently, Thea.
Thea wasn’t so quick to judge. In fact, she had elected to give Harry the benefit of the doubt – after all, it was her the snake was coming after, not Ernie. And it had backed down after Harry’s intervention; it surely had to mean something.
Althea Abbott still clung to the “hero” misnomer Potter had unwittingly adopted, in spite of almost the entire school rendering him a pariah for his latent talents of snake speak. Deep in her heart, she knew very well that he was just a kid; as was she. But if she couldn’t believe in The Boy Who Lived, what could she believe in?
Hogwarts would SUCK if you had to be in a wheelchair
I know wizards magic blah blah blah
but like what if you had to be in crutches? or in a wheelchair? you physically wouldn’t be able to go to some places
like for one, stairs, and also some of the classrooms are just impossible, like to get to the divination room
you have to go spiraling stairs from the seventh floor to the top of the north tower, the real life stairs they used in the movies is 550 stairs, so at least 550+ hogwarts and then you have to go up a ladder
that was hard for healthy students to do, imagine if you have a cast, crunches, sling, wheelchair etc,
Hogwarts architecture is a trainwreck

George Weasley x Reader

Fawkes is a Phoenix, Harry. They burst into flame when it is time for them to die, and then they are reborn from the ashes.

Hufflepuff: Thanks, it’s because you make me uncomfortable.
Writing fic for the Harry Potter fandom obviously comes with its fair share of issues that need to be addressed. And I thought I would do that here, in an attempt to fully express my feelings on the matter.
JKR is a horrible, transphobic person. Her work has several incredibly harmful racial and ethno-religious stereotypes deeply ingrained in her work.
Nothing can erase the deeply problematic history JKR leaves behind with Harry Potter, nor with her more recent public statements and works. I want it to be known that my writing is not an attempt to do so. Rather, it is my own personal expression of creativity, building upon a universe and characters that are so deeply flawed, and that deserves to have been more inclusive. We, as readers, were robbed of what the series and characters could have been.
As an Art Historical Researcher, I have so often had to deal with the problematic, (and often downright vile) nature of the people behind the artworks. Often I have asked myself if I can truly appreciate an artist’s work, knowing how horrible they were as a person. The answer cannot be painted in absolutes. It is the people (the viewer, the reader) that must make that decision for themselves based on their own level of comfort with the person behind the work. (I personally can never enjoy or appreciate a work by Gauguin. I have a more complicated relationship with the works of George Grosz. It varies!) While I have not personally financially supported any works or films associated with JKR in the past, I do still consume fanworks generated for the enjoyment of the community that have a critical and thoughtful eye towards the source material.
My fanfic was my attempt at seizing the original work from JKR and giving it back to the readers. I in no way wish to discredit or ignore the harm JKR has done. On the contrary, I wish for it to be thoroughly examined and critiqued.
If your views on consuming fanwork of Harry Potter differ than my own, I completely respect your decision to not interact with it.
TLDR: JKR is horrible, full stop. But fanwork can be a valuable way to critique the source material. At the end of the day it’s everyone’s personal choice on how they want to interact with a work.
hi y’all this is another random draco blurb, pls don’t let this flop.
The mischievous grey eyes you had become so accustomed to shined brightly at you from their place above you. A taunting smirk painted the blonde’s face as he peered at your slightly quivering form. “Scared aren’t you?” he taunts. “Oh shove off Malfoy” comes back as your weak response, as you’re slightly shaken and unable to come up with a proper comeback. To set the scene, you’re walking down the long narrow corridors at an ungodly hour. Shadows move and flicker at every corner of the desolate path of the winding halls, unnerving you to another level. The fear of Filch and his stupid cat, along with your eyes playing tricks on you leaves you a mess of nerves.
Malfoy simplys grins by your side, and keeps moving forwards. The torch he has in his hand lights up the side of his face and defines the sharp structure of his jaw. As you’re walking in the eerie silence, for once you are grateful that Malfoy has broken the otherwise still sound of air. “There’s nothing to be scared of y’know, I’m right here” he says with his usual air of arrogance, but with a soft edge towards the end.
His words only barely calm your racing heart and you respond with the obvious lie of “I’m not scared”. At this Malfoy grins his cheshire grin, and starts with “Oh yeah? You’re not-”.
Before you can hear the end of his retort, the loud wailing of a portrait has you almost jumping out of your skin. Even Malfoy is startled, which causes him to drop the fiery torch that had lit up the otherwise dim halls.
Now bathed in darkness, you can feel your fear gripping its nasty hands around your throat and rendering you unable to breath for a few seconds. In the pitch darkness of the night, you can hear footsteps and the sickening meows of a feline. Filch and his bloody cat, you think.
Before your reflexes can kick in, you feel large cold hands wrap around your mouth and waist. They pull you into a dark corner, away from the prying eyes of that insufferable feline and its owner. “Don’t make a noise” your captor whispers into your ear. Malfoy, you think. With that thought you melt into his embrace, even though the logical part of your brain tells you not to.
Taking rugged breaths you both for the sounds of Filch’s footsteps to retreat and for that cat to trot away with him. You stay still in Malfoy’s embrace, long after Filch’s footsteps have faded away, for reasons unknown to you. “How long are you planning on staying like that, love?” playfully inquires the slytherin from his spot behind you. This seems to send your body into action, and you push him off of you as if his touch was infused with venom. “Shut up Draco” you practically bark and silently seethe as he watches you amused. You both stand chests heaving as the tension in the room thickens dramatically.
“Or what?” Malfoy responds, deciding to test your limits. “Or I’ll hex you into oblivion” you bite back, unable to dissect the feelings he was evoking in you. “I don’t think you will” he spoke with the lilt of his soft voice, “You love me too much”. Stalking towards you with long strides, he strokes the soft skin of your face, brushing over the acne that resided below your cheekbones.
You, always speechless at the worst of moments, simply don’t respond and instead boldly stare into his steely eyes. “C’mon say it, say you love me” he requests softly but in an almost serious way.
This was a stark contrast to the playful mood he was sporting just minutes ago. “I wanna hear the words come out of your pretty lips angel, so say it” he rasps out. You think about how odd you must look if anyone were to have walked in on this moment. You pressed into the walls of the hallway, while Malfoy’s dark presence loomed over you, begging for you to confess your love for him.
“Please say it, I wanna hear it”, his thumb moves over from the side of your face and instead makes its way onto your lips, toying with them. Finally abiding his requests, you say the words the tall boy has been aching to hear. “I guess I do love you” you respond but not without a slight upwards turn of your lips. At this Malfoy’s face melts into the Cheshire grin he was wearing earlier, and he says something that made your inside turn, twist and topple. “Good Girl”.
sirius: no way…first, i’m going to fall in love with those little guys, and then i’m going to fall out of love, and then i’m going to totally fake die of a FAKE HEART ATTACK *clenches chest dramatically* OHHH, MY HEART, MY HEART HURTS BECAUSE I FELL OUT OF LOVE AND NOW I HAVE DIEEEEE!!!!

he Will talk to sirius with fervor about the Political Hot Take of the day that is trending, and sirius Will tell remus, for the thousandth time, to get off twitter for the sake of his health.
The golden trio’s secondary houses are as follows:
Harry: Hufflepuff (hardworking, just, loyal to a fault)
Hermione: Slytherin (ambitious, cunning, ruthless)
Ron: Ravenclaw (planner, intelligent, learner)
my comfort movies
here are my comfort movies (that i definitely suggest watching) in no particular order because why not.
1. romeo + juliet
“and when i shall die, take him and cut him out in little stars, and he will make the face of heaven so fine that all the world will be in love with night.”
i love this movie so much. i know some people don’t like it because it’s using shakespearean language in a more modern setting, but i think that that aspect makes this movie so much better. not to mention this movie made me fall in love with claire danes. i definitely suggest watching this.
2. 10 things i hate about you
“but mostly, i hate the way i don’t hate you, not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.”
this is my favorite movie of all time. i definitely see how this could be problematic, after all, patrick was payed to date kat, but it’s so cute and i love it. i have watched this movie three times in a row at one point and it’s just so great. watch this movie, i dare you.
3. harry potter and the chamber of secrets
“i’ll be in my bedroom, making no noise and pretending that i don’t exist.”
i love all the harry potter movies, but for some reason this one specifically is the one that makes me the happiest. it might be because it’s the only movie that colin creevey is in, and i love him, or because of the scene where harry says that he set a snake on dudley and ron and hermione are just like wut 👁👄👁. either way, i love this movie and you should watch it.
4. django unchained
“i like the way you die, boy.”
i cant explain why i like this movie as much as i do. it’s a quentin tarantino movie so it’s violent and has very strong language. it’s a really good movie though and you should watch it if you’re into this genre. some trigger warnings for this movie: violence, language, racism, and probably more i just cant think of them right now.
5. howl’s moving castle
“a heart’s a heavy burden.”
this. this movie. it’s my favorite studio ghibli movie. studio ghibli movies are just so beautiful, and this one is very special to me. words cannot describe the feeling i get when i watch this movie. please watch it, i am begging you to watch it.
“ugh, as if!”
this movie has it all, it’s funny, it’s nostalgic, it has a great cast, i love it. alicia silverstone was great in this movie. it’s also very quotable, like the quote about high school boys and dogs, the calvin klein dress, the dinner party speech, etc. this movie is just great. it also has paul rudd, which is always a good thing.
7. what’s eating gilbert grape
“i’m not going into that whole external beauty thing because it doesn’t last. eventually, your face is gonna get wrinkly, you’ll get gray hair, your boobs might sag. it’s what you do that really matters.”
i remember that i had wanted to see this movie for about two years, and then it was added to netflix and i watched it and i loved it. leonardo dicaprio did a great job in this movie and should have won an oscar for it. i really related to this movie because, like gilbert, sometimes i feel like i’m stuck in my hometown and that i’m going to stuck here my whole life. i definitely suggest watching this movie, it’s great.
