Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

The biggest mystery is why Snape got a redemption arc and Draco Malfoy didn’t when out of all the characters he deserved it the most. Draco was a confused child who was neglected by his father, forced to be a death eater, and tried so hard to please Lucious.

Snape was a cruel asshole who got a redemption arc. You cannot change my mind. Draco deserved more. The books wrongfully made Draco look like a villain. Draco DESERVED a redemption arc

Snape: [taps quill]


McGonagall: [taps quill in response]


Umbridge: Stop that.


Snape: Stop what?


Umbridge: You’re talking about me in morse code.


McGonagall: Yes, that’s what we’re doing. In our very limited free time, we took a class on a very outdated, very unnecessary form of communication just so we could talk about you in front of you.


[later]


McGonagall, to Flitwick: That’s… exactly what we did.

I want all my American followers and any American in general to know this; I love you guys. And when I say this, I think I speak for all of us. The rest of the internet. The internet wouldn’t be where it is today without you, and you’ve played huge roles in many peoples lives whether you know it or not.

Whatever happens Thursday, remember that it we’ll miss you all.

So I just wanted to say; goodbye.

No. I won’t say goodbye. I won’t accept defeat.

If Net Neutrality is taken away from you, protest! Do as much as is in your power to get it back!!! This is your freedom you’re fighting for!!! Make up a huge fuss!!! People are loosing jobs, friends, families, rights, support, and much, much more! People count on the internet as their safe haven, a place to get away. Kids living in abusive homes, lgbtq+ people looking for support. People with mental illness, some of them who’s lives have been saved simply because of the kindness and generosity of the people on websites like this one!!!

You can’t let the FCC get away with this! We can’t let them get away with this!!! You may go unnoticed as a single person, but together we can accomplish amazing things! You have two days left until the vote so make the most of it!!!

Let’s get #savenetneutrality on the number 1 trending Tag.

Please, for the sake of everyone, don’t sit around thinking of how bad life will be if you don’t have access to the internet, doing nothing. Because if you do, you will have no internet! Fight for your rights!!! You can do this!!! I believe in you!!!

It doesn’t matter if you’re from Canada, England, France, Greece, Italy, Finland, Switzerland, Russia, Australia, Japan, China, Mexico, Korea, anywhere!!! It doesn’t matter if you’re 13 or 89! You can still help!!! Spread the word!!! Believe it or not there are some people who don’t know about this!!!

Don’t choose to ignore this. Don’t give up.

Happy holidays! You write the most wonderful stories :D For the fic prompt... any thoughts on a genderbent Harry Potter?

oh, oh do i

you see, the thing is, everything would have been different if harry was a girl. do you know how i know?

lily potter.

harry didn’t do anything. he was a baby, they call him the boy who lived, because that’s all he did - he just didn’t die. and that’s not on him, that’s not because he was some extremely powerful one year old. no. it’s because of lily potter, because of her love, or something, because i very much doubt she was the first woman who loved her child enough to die for them. but whatever it is she did, that’s what killed the dark lord.

harry didn’t defeat voldemort. lily did.

and no one cared.

so when little harriet survives the killing curse, no one cares. because it wasn’t her, it wasn’t anything she did.

it was james potter!

james potter, who died, but saved his daughter and defeated the dark lord! and it doesn’t make any sense, but neither does lauding a baby as the defeater of darkness, so when has the wizarding world ever needed to make sense? harry survives, is marked as an equal, by voldemort, and no one cares.

but do you know what that means?

harry doesn’t go to live with dursleys, because why would voldemort ever be after her - she didn’t do anything, she was just there, it was all james potter. and maybe dumbledore knows better, and tries to put his foot down, but - no one cares. she’s james potter’s daughter, the daughter of the man who killed voldemort, she’s not going to be sent to live with some muggles!

and the next safest place is hogwarts, but none of the professors can raise a child, they’re all either too old or busy or snape, so who raises little harriet potter?

why, rubeus hagrid of course!

and people aren’t happy about this either, but it’s better than the muggles, and it seems right, to them, that the daughter of james potter grows up in hogwarts.

so hagrid builds an addition to his little cabin, a nursery that will one day be a bedroom, and harriet potter grows up. she knows the forbidden forest like the back of her hand, knows all those creatures in the forest as her best friends. firenzes somehow ends up babysitting her, multiple times, and he never knows how it happens. she rides unicorns and thestrals and hippogriffs, and is good friends with aragog, and all sorts of other creatures.

she grows up in the forbidden forest, really, and it knows her, it loves her

the kids adore her, and she has hundred and hundreds of older siblings. she’s james potter’s daughter, and a cute kid, and “i was playing with harriet!” is an excuse that works with almost all the professors for a large array of misdeeds. by the time she’s eight, she’s helping kids study for their owl and newts in care of magical creatures.

oh, and herbology, of course, because a forest is not just animals, it’s plants too. and she loves her forest, so she’s constantly getting underfoot with professor sprout. and all the other professors care for her too, and by the time she’s eleven they’re all internally fretting about what she’s going to do in class, because they’ve already taught her most of it.

she meets draco malfoy, and they should hate each other, they should. but draco understands what it’s like to grow up in your father’s shadow, to always be the child of someone instead of just your own person, and harriet can’t help but be friends with him, they become friends seemingly against both their wills.

and harriet’s in gryffindor, of course, with that reckless courage she can hardly go anywhere else. and she knows the weasleys of course, they’ve all been her friends, and she’s delighted now that she gets a weasley of her own. which is what she tells ron on the first day of classes, who was warned about her by all his brothers, and has in fact met her before on multiple occasions, so he just rolls with it.

and harriet adopts hermione and brings into the group, because just like her father, just like hagrid, she can’t stand someone being alone and upset without trying to help, that’s not who she is, it’s not how she was raised.

so she has her friends and her experiences, and she’s james potter’s daughter, which is fine, she likes her life, and her friends.

but nothing good can stay. voldemort returns, and he doesn’t even target her, why does he care for her, it was her father who did this (he was there and still he goes along with the narrative, it couldn’t have been lily, couldn’t have been harriet, no, it had to be james) but somehow harriet and her friends keep on foiling his plans, keep on getting in his way, and for the first time -

she’s not james potter’s daughter, not rubeus hagrid’s daughter -

she’s harriet potter, and she’s in voldemort’s way, and she’s not planning to move for him. she wasn’t raised to bend, and if that breaks her - so be it.

This is an art of some weeks ago, I was rereading The Cursed Child and ….I don’t know, I just love Scorbus. I know that the cursed child is not much appreciated, but I can not help it..I love them! sorry!!

anonymous asked:

how do you think albus would come out to Harry & his family and how would they react?

Elsewhere:

Tbh I don’t think Albus would stress about it too much, since he knows his family is very tolerant and accepting. He’s of course a bit nervous when he one morning says to his parents that he has something to tell them, but in the end, everything turns out just fine and to be honest, Albus isn’t really even surprised, but glad that his parents don’t mind that he’s dating Draco Malfoy’s son.

Meanwhile Scorpius (even though you didn’t ask) is nearly working himself into a panic attack and tells his father that he’s in love with his best friend, while stuttering a lot and fidgeting with his sleeves. He knows, of course, that his father is a good and caring person, but he can’t help worrying. He cares a lot about what his father thinks of him and fears he’d be disappointed and angry at the prospect of Scorpius becoming the last Malfoy or whatever. Draco of course thinks nothing of the sort and tells that to Scorpius, who is very, very relieved.

unpopular opinion about the 2018 tonys:

every single show, actor, and actress that got an award deserved it 100% and just because the shows i was rooting for didn’t win certain awards doesn’t mean i get to hate on them and call them bad
