  • I saw a tiktok of a guys Marauders era FC’s and the comments were all “*popular fancast* doesnt look a thing like *character*”… like… how self centered are yall? Yall realize FANCASTS differ based on the person reading the book, right? We dont have a hive mind. So long as the fancasts arent offensive/disrespectful (whitewashing), who tf cares which actress someone fancasts as young Bellatrix or Lily Evans?

    I find it really interesting that in the chapter where Snape dies, it’s stated that Lucius was still bearing the marks of the punishment he had received for letting Harry escape from Malfoy Manor. One of his eyes remained close and puffy, yet in the chapter right after that one, it’s mentioned specifically that Bellatrix’s face was bloody from the battle but otherwise unscathed. Bellatrix and Lucius made almost the same mistakes, first in the Department of Mysteries (the very same one where Voldemort exposed himself to the enemy and revealed himself to the entire Wizarding World, made himself vulnerable which caused the Ministry to start working against him and delay his plans. He got out of Harry’s body for the sole purpose of saving her and took the time to break the statue pinning her to the Ministry floor, grab her, and disapparate. He didn’t even need to do it yet he made himself vulnerable to the attacks of the enemies while doing so. He could have stayed inside Harry till he was out of Ministry’s sight or disapparated straight from inside him and nobody would have seen but he still saved her. It clearly wasn’t for her usefulness either because there was no mission she was assigned till the other Death Eaters were back and he could have freed her with them anyway. This was very imprudent from a strategic point of view, yet he, an inherently selfish man did it solely for her) and then Malfoy Manor, and Voldemort’s Horcrux was stolen from Bellatrix’s vault only a day before this yet Lucius was punished so severely that even months after the punishment, the scars remained but was Bella even punished at all apart from the house arrest? This was clearly for contrast purposes because what was the point of mentioning that Bella’s face was ‘otherwise unscathed’ if not this? What would she be unscathed from? The punishment, of course! I’ve always had the lingering question in the back of my mind about the ‘otherwise unscathed’ phrasing but never really thought it through until now.

    That woman was definitely much, much more than a follower to Voldemort. It’s painfully obvious.

  • I love this fandom and its story (of course cause magic! Lol) but I hate how it bleeds through into other fandoms (ie Crossovers) that make no sense for Harry or any character in HP to be in.

  • I don’t care what anybody says; Peter Pettigrew is trash and there’s no defending him. He had many options besides giving up his friends. But he was a traitor. He wanted to be in with the big dogs, that’s it. He wanted to be in with the tough crowd, but he himself wasn’t tough. He was a coward and a shit friend. I guarantee he became an animagus because it was cool to break the rules & learn advanced magic, not for Lupin. The others trusted him, but they were naive. He was always trash.

  • I wish people would stop assuming I hate Ron just because I ship Harmione. I’ve never hated Ron ever. Hes a sweet boy, hes dorky and adorable. I just wish Harry and Hermione would have been canon instead.

  • Of all the younger characters to be secretly in the closet, I think Draco is the most likely one & despite what people might think, I headcanon his marriage as arranged/forced because of how backwards wizarding society is. He produced children because it’s expected of him to give produce “pureblood Malfoy heirs.” Do I still think he’s a spoiled rotten brat who otherwise was never abused? Yes. But I don’t think he’s straight nor loves his wife.

  • Tbh, the most annoying thing about the HP fandom is when they make posts that say something like “If you dislike (insert character), you don’t have

    👀,

    🧠, or

    ❤”. Why can’t we just have our own opinions on characters?

    Cedric Diggory was only mentioned briefly in PoA, as the Seeker who won the quidditch match for Hufflepuff; but in GoF, he’s mentioned several times, like being chosen by the Goblet, Cho Chang’s date to the Yule Ball, helping Harry, etc. In the same book, he dies.

    Similarly, the Lovegoods are mentioned just once in GoF, when Arthur Weasley talks about them living on a hill near the Burrow. But when Luna was properly introduced in OoTP, I was really scared that something bad would happen to her because of all the foreshadowing. I guess what I’m trying to say is I was really rooting for her and I’m glad she got a beautiful character build-up.

  • I strongly dislike that fanon makes it out that Luna and Ginny have been best friends since childhood. It really undermines both characters. It undermines Ginny’s growth from being part of the crowd that calls Luna “loony” to defending her. And it undermine’s Luna’s experience of not having friends, which she directly states when she says “I liked the DA. It was like having friends”. Don’t erase Luna’s experience. It’s important for kids who didn’t always have friends growing up.

  • Crazy that people say things like “Snape had friends at Hogwarts” “Draco’s parents adored him” even “Ron was never the disfavored child” as criticisms, of Snape, Malfoy, Ron, whoever; of their choices. When that’s the POINT. Snape found a bizarre appreciation among wannabe DEs that he didn’t experience anywhere else; Draco’s parents, like most parents, loved their son, and, like most parents, instilled their values in him from childhood; he loved and respected them and wanted to follow in their footsteps. Ron doesn’t stick out among his siblings, not for bad or for good; that lack in singularity burns at him in a trio with a Chosen Hero and a genius. You aren’t just shaped by bad experiences, by hate and pain. You’re just as vulnerable to love, and appreciation, and all that you associate with positive emotion. And shaped most of all by the mundane, the day-to-day, what’s so normal to you, you don’t even see it.

  • I came really close to hating Hermione in HBP. I found that all her worst traits were magnified. Her nagging Harry about the Half Blood Prince’s Potions book and her behavior when Ron started dating Lavender really annoyed me. I loved it when Ginny flipped out on her. Hermione has never been one of my favorite characters but I’d always been able to tolerate and respect her at least until HBP.

  • I think Sirius was at least partially justified in his treatment of Kreacher. Yes, he could have been nicer, but he never initiated and Kreacher made it a point to insult Sirius and his loved ones whenever Sirius was within earshot. Plus with the way Kreacher worshipped Walburga, it’s not hard to imagine that he took part in their mistreatment of Sirius as a child before he ran away.

  • I find it rather annoying that people call Krum/Hermione creepy because he was 18 and she was 15 when they started dating, but they never bring up that when Fleur and Bill started flirting Fleur was either 17 or 18 while Bill was already in his mid twenties.

  • I’ve always wondered why Dumbledore never questioned the belief that Sirius had betrayed the Potters. He knew them for years and he would have seen how much Sirius loved James and Lily. Not to mention how the hell did it escape his notice for twelve years that Sirius never got a trial, especially considering he’s the head of the Wizengamot?

  • I admire Hermione for her intelligence, Luna for her individuality, and Ginny for her bravery.
