Dumbledore:

Hagrid:

Everyone: No, no, no, noooooooooo
Stick to the stuff you know
It is better by far
To keep things as they are
Don’t mess with the flow, no no
Stick to the status quo

Moments from the Harry Potter books I wish made it into the movies
  • Peeves
  • Voldemort’s past
  • The story of Albus, Ariana, and Grindelwald. Have Albus say this in the afterlife when talking to Harry.  “Did I know, in my heart of hearts, what Gellert Grindelwald was? I think I did, but I closed my eyes.
  • Grindelwald refusing to give away the location of the Elder Wand and trying to prevent Albus’ tomb being desecrated because he showed remorse, regret and possibly love  in his final years, something Voldemort was incapable of doing
  • James, Sirius, Remus and Peter being called The Marauders, the full flashback from OOTP and Sirius and Remus explaining that James became a better person, especially “but she hated him” “Nah she didn’t”
  • James and Lily being 21, the tragedy of their deaths were that they died young.
  • Ginny Weasley being the boss ass bitch she’s supposed to be
  • Cho defending Marietta and showing what an absolute asshole Harry was to her in OOTP for defending her friend
  • Winky
  • DOBBY IN CLOTHES AND IN ALL HIS CANONICAL SCENES! CLOTHES BECAUSE  DOBBY IS A FREE ELF! 
  • Sassy Harry Potter 
  • Hermione’s canon hair(I love you Emma but your hair was too smooth and clean)
  • S.P.E.W. it shows that Hermione was willing to free House Elves even though they did not want to be freed, but it shows how great her character is and how far she’s willing to go to fight injustice
  • Ron treated like Harry’s best friend and not his goofy sidekick and his canon lines NOT given to Hermione just to make Hermione a better person.
  • The book canon Romione kiss
  • Actual chemistry between Harry and Ginny instead of the movies portraying love between sandpaper and drying paint. Put effort into Harry and Ginny’s relationship and stop trying to say “Harry and Hermione should have happened!”
  • Bill and Fleur in Half-Blood Prince and Fleur saying she doesn’t care about Bill’s scars
  • Snape telling Harry “HOW DARE YOU CALL ME A COWARD!”
  • Peter’s death, showing that he owed Harry a life debt and Peter’s arm slowly killing him and showing that he felt regret for betraying his friends.
  • The full Prince’s Tale to show how Snape grew up, how manipulative Albus was, that Snape was willing to sacrifice James and Harry to save Lily,  showing that Snape and Lily’s relationship was a toxic friendship and that Snape regretted everything and wishes he were dead and  what Snape had to go through.
  • McGonagall sassing Umbridge and more of Minerva being a boss ass bitch
  • Charlie Weasley
  • Bill and Charlie in Goblet Of Fire
  • Percy’s betrayal and redemption 
  • Harry giving Fred and George his winnings to help them build WWW
  • Remus and Tonks’ relationship, Teddy and Remus asking Harry to be Teddy’s godfather
  • Showing Frank and Alice Longbottom in St Mugo’s
  • Lockhart in St Mugo’s
  • Dumbledore’s funeral
  • Luna’s room
  • Lucius and Narcissa searching everywhere for Draco, not attempting to fight only caring about Draco being alive and their reunion 
  • The story of Regulus Arcturus Black and Kreacher’s redemption
  • The book version of the final duel between Harry and Voldemort, saying remorse would save him and showing Tom die a human death 
  • Showing Harry fix his wand
  • The epilogue NOT having the characters to look like they are in their 40’s. Harry and Hermione looks good, but Ron and Ginny should not look so damn old.
You Cannot Convince Me This Never Happened
  • James Potter, age 11:*walks to the front of the Great Hall all confident*
  • James Potter, age 11:*perches self in front of Dumbledore's seat*
  • James Potter, age 11:I have gathered you all here today--
  • Sirius Black, age 12:James, we are all eating breakfast. This happens everyday. You gathered literally no one.
  • James Potter, age 11:Shut up, Sirius, no one asked you.
  • James Potter, age 11:*clears throat* I have gathered you all here today to tell you that one day I will marry Lily Evans. And on that day I will invite every single person in this room to prove that it actually happened and as a result none of you can mock me. Thank you for your time. *goes to sit down*
  • Albus Dumbledore, age 139:*claps loudly*
  • James Potter, age 18:Alright Dumbledore, Lily said yes. Who was attending Hogwarts in the '71-'72 school year. I have to invite them all.
  • Albus Dumbledore, age 146:James, my dear boy, here is the list. I remembered to keep it for this moment.
  • James Potter, age 18:Hell yes. I proved THEM right.

I’ve seen so many people share gifs/photos of Dumbledore when he says, “Happiness may be found even in the darkest of times if only one remembers to turn on the light.” and then he ignites the candle:

And everyone uses it as a metaphor that Dumbledore was the one who brought light/goodness to the wizarding world, yadda, yadda, yadda.

But here’s the thing that very few people have pointed out. (In fact, it was a pain to find a gif of this.)

Right before Dumbledore lights the candle, he puts it out!

In order to bring the light, Dumbledore brought darkness.

And I think that that’s a much more powerful metaphor for who Dumbledore actually was and what he actually did.

Uptown Funkin at Hogwarts

But imagine a muggleborn randomly screaming ‘I’M TOO HOT’ in the Great Hall then another muggleborn screaming back ‘HOT DAMN’ then another muggleborn from the Hufflepuff table screams, ‘CALL THE POLICE AND THE FIREMAN’ until all the muggleborns are chanting the lyrics to Uptown Funk and the purebloods are just looking at each other in bewilderment going 'wtf is a Michelle Pfeiffer’
