Ugh. Yes. 
I find the Snape/Lily narrative to be really horrific, honestly. The fact that we are asked to feel oh so bad for poor little Snape makes me a little bit queasy. 
Because, yes, I do sympathize with Snape for having a rough childhood. 
But he was a horrible friend to Lily. He ignored her feelings. He screamed racial slurs at her. He favored the idealized version of her he had built up in his mind over the REAL her (I think it is significant that James’ patronus is a STAG, showing compatibility with Lily; while Snape is a DOE, showing a mimicry of Lily). That idealization and inability to reconcile how his own actions contributed to the failure of their friendship literally KILLED Lily.
I understand that we can show some sympathy for him. Watching someone self destruct their own relationships because of abuse and peer pressure and the tribulations of childhood? That’s tragic. 
But then he grows up to emotionally abuse Lily’s son for having a physical resemblance to her husband. 
And we’re supposed to feel sorry for him? We’re supposed to think it’s lovely and sweet that Harry names his child after the teacher who emotionally abused him for years? Who emotionally abused OTHER children for years as well? 
The fans who sit around and cry about how Lily SHOULD have picked Snape, how Snape DESERVED her? How James was a horrible douche and Lily was a bitch for choosing him? Ugh. No. nno no no no on oonononononononoooooo. 

also snape actually ruined a mans career fully knowing he probably couldn’t get another one.

Oh the shit that went down with Remus makes me really want to break his teeth. 
Remus had been HOMELESS. Remus had spent much of his adult life implied to be on the streets, unable to find work, and completely unable to make new friendships or relationships after Lily and James died, Peter vanished, and Sirius went to jail (ALL of which is DIRECTLY Snape’s god damn fault.)
And then just as Remus picks himself back up again? Becomes a positive force and father figure to Harry? Snape deliberately and purposely gets him FIRED so that he will be unemployed and potentially homeless AGAIN. 
How the fuck am I supposed to show any sympathy for an adult who completely lacks the ability to show sympathy, or even human decency, to others?

Can we all please take a moment to appreciate Hagrid here? Seriously, everyone always talks about how Harry has no father figure and how terrible it was for Sirius to die because now Harry’s all alone (dont get me wrong, Sirius is my favorite character) but honestly, Hagrid is the best father Harry ever had. He did so much for him, and no one, sometimes not even Harry realizes that. Hagrid gets no where near the mount of credit he deserves. Take a minute and try to imagine where Harry would be with out him and you’ll understand what im talking about.

I think JKR said it was really important to her that Hagrid carried him out of the forest, because he carried him to safety when he was a baby. Hagrid has been there since the beginning, and he was also there at the culmination of Harry’s journey. He’s always cared SO MUCH and been really open with Harry for the most part, which is something Harry needs since people tend to keep secrets from him. Yeah, he’s irresponsible with the monsters, but all of Harry’s father figures were pretty irresponisble, and Hagrid was definitely like, the most solid and reliable out of all of them. And he never left.

im crying

Hagrid was also most like a parent in his correction of Harry. For Sirius and Molly, Harry could do no wrong. Dumbledore saw Harry’s flaws, but he depended on them for his own plans to work.

But Hagrid saw Harry for exactly who he was, good and bad. He was the first to publicly defend Harry’s innocence anytime he got blamed for something he didn’t do; but he was also the first to call Harry out on his treatment of Hermione in PoA. He is consistently honest and forthright in addressing Harry’s behaviour and choices, and always acts in the way he believes will be best for Harry’s growth and especially for his moral development.

Harry is the man he is because of Hagrid. No one else did that for him. 

Awesome point, awesome awesome.

A Quick Guide to Nice Guy(TM) Responses (aka You Can't Win):

Act friendly: "She lead me on! Bitch!"
Don't act friendly: "She didn't give me a chance! Bitch!"
Let them down nicely: "Well she said 'not right now', so I'll keep trying 'til she changes her mind."
Flat-out say no: "What?! But I'm so nice! What a bitch! I'll keep trying 'til she changes her mind because she OWES me now."
Date someone else: "Ugh, women only date jerks!"
Don't date someone else: "Hello?! You clearly are single and so am I, why aren't we naked yet?"
Marry someone else, have baby, die tragically fighting Voldemort: "Now I will torture her emotionally and physically abused son because I loved her so much and she married that jackass Potter instead!"

Was she going to slap you because you never in any way made him gay in the actual books, taking zero risks/doing absolutely nothing for gay characters in literature, and only announcing your “authorial intent” afterwards for a cheap shot at looking like an ~ally~

^^^

Gay people are just normal people. We are not told about any of the Hogwarts professors love lives, other than Snape, and it would be completely out of character for Dumbledore to walk around telling everyone about his sexuality.

Did you want her to make him dress in glittery platform boots, a crop top, and decorate his office in rainbow flags to make it more obvious for you? Would that be enough of a stereotype to appease you people? Or what? Please tell me. I’d like to know how you think a gay character is supposed to be portrayed.

And did you miss the Grindelwald chapters in the ‘actual books’? Or was that also not obvious enough for you? Did Dumbledore need to whisper “always” wistfully in order for you to connect that he had romantic feelings for Grindelwald? Maybe you are American and need them to gaze longingly into each others eyes with awkward close ups of their fingers almost grazing each other that Hollywood thinks means ‘true love’. 

It didn’t fit into his relationship to Harry to ever say “I’m gay”, and so it was not stated explicitly (you might have noticed the book was told from Harry Potter’s perspective).

The point is though, that he is a homosexual, well respected, powerful, and very loved wizard- and his sexuality doesn’t matter because no one else thinks it matters. a.k.a. no one care that he loves men, and that is wonderful.

always reblog this

JK Rowling painstakingly planned out massive amounts of the HP World and plenty of that detail didn’t even go into the books because it didn’t have any bearing on the plot or Harry’s narrative.

When a fan asked her about this aspect of Dumbledore’s character, she answered. I’m at the point where I’m convinced that people would have found excuses to accuse her of being a bad ally no matter when or where or how she disclosed this detail. Is she also a shitty advocate for AIDS victims because she didn’t reveal until years after Prizoner of Azkaban’s book release that she was using the werewolf condition as a metaphor for AIDS? Does it mean that she’s insensitive because she’s never talked about the very highly probability of Luna Lovegood’s psychology falling somewhere along the Austism Spectrum? The HP books are on the shelves, and can be read and re-read whenever you want, and I think she’s doing people a favor by giving out more information from her imagination because it means people can do back and appreciate the text on different levels.

George would never be able to evoke a Patronus Charm after Fred’s death.
A patronus often mutates to take the image of the love of one’s life because they so often become the happy thought that generates a Patronus.


THAT’S NOT A FUN FACT.


I REALLY like the love potion one though, that’s a FANTASTIC idea!

Okay, I’m having a moment. Let me have a minute to get over this video. Shit I mean … This nearly killed me. I often type into my tags that I’m crying but this time I really mean it. Hp has been over for a year now and I still think that it’s the best damn thing that ever happened to me. And it will never truly end for me. Because I’m sitting here crying over these characters, over this fantastic series which gave me so much. Harry Potter was the first book I’ve ever read and it changed me. I guess I’ll never find the right words to explain my love for these books and movies … But I just wanna say one thing: Joanne K. Rowling … THANK YOU SO, I OWE YOU SO MUCH. Just thank you FOR MAKING MY CHILDHOOD A BETTER AND MAGICAL TIME.

literally sobbing right now oh my god what has this done to me aslfkdjlawjefjw MY HEART

Actual tears in my eyes (this’s been an emotional day, what).

Been in love with this world for ten years, and I don’t know how to stop anymore.

The series might have ended, but the magic lives on.
