  • A lot of the criticism I see Hermione and Dumbledore get reminds me of Hannibal Buress’ “Why are you booing me? I’m right!”

    Like Hermione being right about Crookshanks and Scabbers, or Dumbledore being right about Voldemort’s defeat and Harry surviving.

    Maybe they act like they know better than everyone else because they DO know better. They shouldn’t have to apologize for not being wrong.

  • I always found it baffling that some people think Ron would be the abusive one in his relationship with Hermione. I don’t either of them would be abusive, but -if I had to pick which one of them had more potential to be physically and/or emotionally abusive to the other, based on how they act in the books- I certainly wouldn’t be putting my money on Ron, that’s for sure.

  • Every time someone does that whole virtue signalling thing; petty comments about ‘toxic, racist, abusive, pRobLemAtiC’ characters/ships others enjoy, making smug judgements. Wobbifying the fuck out of their faves. All that ugly ‘righteous’ spite delivered from such pretty aesthetic blogs. I can’t help but picture Dolores Umbridge in her pretty pink outfits, with her kitten decorative plates. That smug look on her face is what I see in so many comments that are essentially fandom bullying.

  • I have a lot of admiration for the character of Harry Potter because he has been through a lot of trauma but didn’t let it make him bitter. He fights for what is right, not for fame and glory, but because it is the right thing to do. In fact I would go so far as to say he is one of my favorite protagonists.

  • For some reason, I have the headcanon that Nicholas Flamel was bi in the books.

  • No offence to Hermione or the people at Magical Menagerie, but what kind of name is Crookshanks? Half a joke, half a genuine question.

    (crook as in crooked; shank as in the lower part of the leg. good for a cat with wonky legs!)

  • I really like Fantastic Beasts, but I wish that the plot had more to do with magical beasts then it does. I like learning about Dumbledore’s past and stuff but if JK wanted to explore that more why not just be upfront about it and make a Dumbledore origin story? I wish it was more Newt traveling around the world and learning about his creatures and learning to live past his Hogwarts experience.

  • So, I was on Quora and someone said they didn’t like HP because all the characters were black and white, except like 3 characters. THen proceeded to say PJO characters had depth. Which confused me. Because that just doesn’t make sense to me. What kinda depth do you want from an 11-17 year old?

  • A lot of people are saying Snape was being mean because he was a spy. But can you imagine how big the shock of him killing Dumbledore would have been if he was a nice person? Can you imagine how HBP would have been different? Harry not wanting to accuse Snape, but it something seems fishy. Honestly, if he was nicer, he would have made an even better spy.

  • Hermione is really the Minister for Magic. What a Queen.

  • I have a random headcanon about how the mandrake antidote was administered to Nearly-Headless Nick after the basilisk attack. I figure it was prepared as usual, then dried and powdered, then blown gently all over him. Wish they’d included this scene in the film!!

  • I think people read too much into Snape being Neville’s boggart, when Rowling probably just thought it would be funny putting him in drag.

  • There are certain characters and ships in the Potter fandom that I don’t like, but I would NEVER threaten anyone who likes them. It makes me furious that there are STILL people in this fandom who behave like that!

  • My favourite scene from DH1 film is when Harry and co leave the Malfoy Manor and got to the beach where Dobby dies. The scene is sad but Luna’s sweetness during this scene mixed with Harry’s devastation over losing his loyal companion is so heartbreakingly beautiful that it made it my favourite scene. I was on the verge of tears during this scene, it was a very great cinematic moment for me.

  • I want to know more about the Hogwarts school band. I wonder if they have a marching band. Do they even have marching band in Britain? If so, where do they practice? There’s no football field, so they would probably practice on the quidditch field. I also wonder if the Harry Potter theme was something written by a band student who really adored Harry. I think that would be cool.

  • Even ignoring the truth about Scabbers, Ron was an idiot for getting mad at Hermione. He took a rat to a school filled with its natural predators, and then he was surprised when it looked like nature had taken its course?

  • I’ve happily shipped in the HP fandom for so many years now. But it wasn’t until tumblr that I saw so many backhand comments towards Hermione- from people that stan and ship her. Saying that she is lucky to get Ron, or any man really because of, her personality. That she seems like more of a lonely cat lady. That she is a bossy, pushy swot, who is unattractive in the books (!?!). If she were a male character with the same attributes she would be called assertive, and seen as attractive.

  • UNPOPULAR OPINION TIME: I think the biggest problem with the Harry Potter films is that they’re actually TOO accurate to the books at times, to the point where they just feel like worse versions of the books with some scenes taken out (and some character assassinations *cough* Ron and Ginny). IMO the best adaptations are the ones that work by themselves as movies e.g Lord of the Rings trilogy is it’s own thing designed to work as a piece of cinema, separate from the books.

  • I want to know if I am the only one who ships Severus Snape with Narcissa Malfoy. I have been shipping them ever since Half Blood Prince.

  • I always dread HP June anniversary because of Mad-Eye’s death. So many people post about this, saying “This is the day Hedwig died and George lost his ear” or variations upon that. Sometimes Mad-Eye’s mentioned and sometimes he’s mentioned last. It just feels like people mourn George’s loss of an ear more than the loss of a fantastic warrior who has seen far much more than the majority of other characters and deserved to live to see Voldemort’s downfall and Snape being on their side all along.
