The problem with the fifth book is that all Harry does is complain. He literally complains through the entire book. It's like we get it Harry life is hard. But HARRY YOU ARE A WIZARD! Therefore, your life is inherently better than mine. Be interesting.

Shit Harry was dealing with in Order of the Phoenix:

  • seeing one of his friends literally murdered in front of his eyes
  • one of his favourite teachers was not only not who he said to be but also out to kill him who wouldn’t have trust issues after that??
  • his friends completely shut him out for months over the summer
  • the closest thing he has to a father figure fucking DIES
  • the second closest thing he has to a father figure ignores him for most of the book
  • the entire wizarding world thinks he’s a liar and is constantly saying shit about him
  • he now has to suffer through two abusive teachers who make him do shit like carve words into his own skin and intrude on his happiest memories
  • he can’t even play quidditch which is his favourite thing ever
  • oh also he thinks he’s being possessed by voldemort and is a danger to everyone around him
  • and on top of all that he’s 15 and hormonal 

Inspired by @linddzz’s adorably chaotic fic: in which Newt, our blessed protagonist who does not, and never will truly understand self-preservation, tries to fly on something that is not a fantastic beast. Credence must, as always, protect this man from himself.

The recipe for Wow-Wow Sauce is a hereditary possession of the Ridcully family.  Archchancellor Ridcully, like most wizards, is a man who goes for sauces; if you are the kind of person who takes a beefy patty between two halves of a bun and then covers it with cheese, and a pickle, and some green relish, and some red relish, and a different sort of pickle, and then some dark mustard, not forgetting of course some light mustard, and then some bits of green and other things until the meat slides out unnoticed and falls onto the floor, then you are of a magical inclination.  A wizard will lick the top of a sauce bottle if he thinks no one is watching.

(Tag with someone you just learned is of a magical inclination.)

to the FBaWtFT-ask: Oh yes. It's actually very good and ofc there is not much Harry Potter in it. I can't understand how ppl condem a story without going through it. Also what is Rowling supposed to do now? Stop existing? Never talk or think about the wizarding world ever again? I can't understand how ppl bash her for actually trying to bring them a bit joy. But yeah "she's doing it for the money!!11!!" Idk but i'm so angry about how many ppl reacted(in gen). :DYou should def watch it in 3D. :)

My only annoyance is her weird generalization of Native American folks (there were SO MANY TRIBES- they were not a hive mind) and her insistence that there is only one American wizarding school and it’s just like Hogwarts (maybe that’s the only one they’ll let you know about JK, but it’s not the only one and no I won’t go into detail about how I know this).

As someone with Muskogee Creek heritage, I don’t like the fact that “Native Americans” are just thrown in a big old pot together as though they are all the same.

But I agree that it sounds like a fun movie and I can probably sit and enjoy it without grumping and snarking the whole way through (though I might snark and grump a bit, after all, I’m only human).
