Fears of Hogwarts houses

Hufflepuff:
Being alone. Letting people down and not being able to help when you feel like you need to.

Gryffindor:
Not being able to live up to the expectations that people have of you.

Ravenclaw:
Not suceed in things at work, school or home and not being listened to.

Slytherin:
Letting people in, cause you think they will reject you or see you as weak.

Harry’s blind faith in Dumbledore and Dumbledore’s calculated faith in Harry explain so much about both of their characters.

I know so many people hate Dumbledore’s guts but I feel like their interactions are very explanatory on how they view the world and they are so different but in the end. 

Somehow Dumbledore manages to foresee what Harry will do when the time comes and Harry never sees what Dumbledore plans but their trust works differently. Harry, this kid who didn’t even know Dumbledore had a brother let alone a long gone sister, trusts blindly and follows his plan to defeat Voldemort, he doesn’t doubt him even though he hears bad things about Dumbledore. On the other hand, Dumbledore, who trusted before and got his trust broken by one boy, doesn’t trust the kid he expects to die when all is said and done. He can calculate his moves but he doesn’t tell him more than he needs to know. 

Dumbledore looks at their relationship like a business transaction but Harry sees him like a father figure because he is so desperate for one. Dumbledore admits that he never wanted to care for the boy but he ended up caring about him immensely but still he managed to keep it on the side. Conversely, Harry solely acts on how he’s feeling; that’s why having logical Hermione and strategic mastermind Ron on his side is so important. 

Harry is obsessed with saving the people he cares about and the casualties and Dumbledore cares about the greater good, greater good means perpetual peace and what happens on the road to reaching this peace is not important. For Harry, that way of thinking is betrayal cause as a person who dealt with death as much, he thinks no one deserves to die. You see that as he tried to save Voldemort from himself in the book by trying to get him to feel remorse; Dumbledore would have killed Voldemort the first chance he got, Harry tries to save him.

There are so many other things but these are few from the top of my head, it’s so sloppily written but I hope it makes sense. 

tl;dr: Their characters are so clashing which shows both of their true colours, completely.

I don’t get it. I really, really don’t. Come on fandom, this is insane. What is with accusing Dumbledore of literally EVERYTHING! Now they say he didn’t fight for Hagrid and “allowing” him to be expelled when the books clearly say he tried to help him. Now they’re accusing him of “half-hearting” Newt’s defense and let him get expelled so he would put Dumbledore on a pedestal. Dumbledore supposedly LET all these things happen to people so they would worship him. Uh, people usually love you if you do GOOD for them. If Dumbledore REALLY wanted all these people to view him as a savior, how about actually SAVING them, for the love of fuck?! Come on, if Albus wanted an in with Newt, how about letting him STAY at school if he could?! Same thing with Hagrid, if Dumbledore wanted their gratitude it would make more sense to not “allow” their expulsions so that they’d be SUPER grateful! Why is this not registering?! Give them something to be grateful for! They’d love you if you DIDN’T supposedly half-ass their defense. Plus it’s the HEADMASTER’S call on who gets expelled. Dumbledore can’t make Dippet change his mind. He can’t make ANY human change their mind, if he could he’d be an actual manipulator. Dumbledore has better shit to do with his time and his life than to ruin lives. Which is the WORST thing to do if you want to make someone grateful to you. It’s not, never has and never fucking WILL be HIS job to fix everyone’s lives people. Deal with it.

hp characters as anna kendrick’s tweets

harry: It’s cute how I used to think this “barely-holding-it-together” feeling was temporary.

ron: Sometimes I think “I need to think before I speak” and then other times I think “I shouldn’t leave the house or interact with people ever.”

hermione: I woke up just before winning the argument in my dream. Fuck this day.

draco: For someone with such an intense need to be liked you’d think I would have figured out how to be less of an asshole.

neville: My daily objective is less about goal achievement and more about regret management.

ginny: “You’re the only person in the world I don’t hate right now" is as close as I get to saying “I love you”

luna: When *I* played Barbie, I stripped her naked and melted her with matches.

voldemort: My life would be so much easier if it wasn’t for that thing…God, what is that thing called…other people.

dumbledore: If I die unexpectedly can everyone just do the right thing and pretend I was a way better person than I am?

snape: Can I petition to make holding grudges an Olympic event? Cause I’ve been in training my whole life.

Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.

There is nothing to be feared from a body, Harry, any more than there is anything to be feared from the darkness. Lord Voldemort, who of course secretly fears both, disagrees. But once again he reveals his own lack of wisdom. It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more. - Half-blood Prince, Chapter 26

Film Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince was released 8 years! (15th July, 2009)
