I wish Dumbledore haters would just admit they hate Dumbledore for personal bias and be done with it, instead of trying to find ‘proof’ and theories in the books that 'Dumbledore is the most evil character ever’. I mean, 'literary interpretation’ can only go so far before you’re making stuff up. If they expect one day for JK Rowling to say 'Dumbledore was the most evil character, and he never cared about anyone, and only used people for power-hungry reasons’ they’re deluding themselves cause Jo loves Dumbledore.
I am a huge Dumbledore fan, I have loved him ever since the start of the series and I love him even more at the end. And I get furious when people blame him for things that aren’t his fault and hate him for things that he didn’t do. I especially hate bashing of any kind especially when they try to make Dumbledore be evil. He has his flaws but I’ll defend him to the death most of the time, out of all the HP characters he’s my baby.
However, the one thing I keep thinking about is the whole Willow/Werewolf prank. As much as I love Dumbledore, I can’t get over this. Every time I think about it I feel bad for Snape and find myself going “Albus…WTF?!” I can defend Dumbledore from a lot of accusations using canon, but I CANNOT defend this. Albus, what the hell? Snape isn’t my favorite but he’s still a kid who almost died! Merlin’s beard, man, what were you thinking?! Now I love Sirius to pieces, but his little ass needed to get expelled or locked up for that crap. JK Rowling, I keep thinking about this scene and I need you to come up with an explanation for this, something so I can get it out of my head. Unfortunately, this confession may attract Dumbledore bashers (I pray not), I will always love him. But gods dammit if this scene doesn’t make me want to throttle him. What was his reason? I really need a canon reason why this happened, and a good one. The whole “he favored Gryffindor” deal that haters use isn’t good enough for me. Nobody favors a house to that extent, it’d be bad business.
Concept: a movie theater that only shows Harry Potter films. The movies will be in 4D. The temperature will drop when dementors are present. Fans will blow on you during quidditch scenes. Enticing smells will be pumped in during feast scenes but don’t worry about feeling hungry because the theater will serve Bertie Botts, treacle tart, drumsticks, butterbeer, chocolate frogs and those tiny little pies that Mrs. Weasley makes. Instead of loyalty cups, you get discounts if you wear a Weasley sweater.
Aries:“Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth.”
Taurus:“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.“
Gemini:“I sometimes find, and I am sure you know the feeling, that I simply have too many thoughts and memories crammed into my mind.”
Cancer:“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.”
Leo:“Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right, and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good and kind and brave because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort.”
Virgo:“It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it.”
Libra:“Do not pity the dead, Harry, pity the living, and above all those who live without love.”
Scorpio:“This pain is part of being human … the fact that you can feel pain like this is your greatest strength.”
Sagittarius:“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”
Capricorn:“It is important to fight, and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then could evil be kept at bay, though never quite eradicated.“
Aquarius:“After all, to the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.”
Pisces:“He [Voldemort] never paused to understand the incomparable power of a soul that is untarnished and whole.”
