oh dear, dear anon. no one can explain everything in the harry potter fandom. it cannot be done. this fandom is the product of a good ten years of people screaming into various voids and memorising meaningless words for personal validation. i speak as a longtime member of the cult. you need not come here. it is dangerous here. here be dragons.


Listen. Harry James Potter was an accident. 

You cannot convince me otherwise. Lily and James were 19 when they got pregnant. There’s no way that was on purpose. 

Please picture it. 

Lily tells James they’re pregnant. James panics, leaves, finds the other Marauders and demands a lads night, you know, no reason, just some drunken shenanigans for no reason at all with friends! Remus notices something seems a bit off and keeps an eye on his friend, but no one says anything. It’s only several hours later, when James is drunkenly crying and wailing on the floor, “He’s going to be so small! How can I protect him? SO SMALL!” that they realize what’s going on. They ask him if he is going to be alright. He sobs, tears and snot running down his face, and nods furiously. “This is the happiest I have ever been!” The others look at each other, shake their heads, and pull him to his feet. Sirius marches him back home to Lily, who has been waiting, scared, alone, and more than a little pissed off at her boyfriend for the better part of the night. She softens when she sees James drunkenly leaning on Sirius, Sirius shrugging in apology, because James is a mess but at least he’s home now. James falls to his knees in front of her and says, “I’m so sorry I ran off. I got scared. I’m still scared. But I’m happy too.” Lily can’t help but smile. “It’s alright, James, we’ll figure–” But James loudly shushes her and points at her stomach. “Wait. I’m talking to my son.” Lily glares at him and reminds him that it could be a daughter. Sirius adds, “Could be twins! Or quintuplets!” Lily glares more and tries not to laugh while James murmurs into her belly, “’M gonna ask your mum to marry me, but keep it secret ‘cause I have to buy a ring first. And a broom. Not for the wedding. For you. Do you like quidditch? You probably don’t know what that is yet. Don’t worry. I’ll teach you. I’ll teach you everything.”

the thing that annoys me most about snape is how great a friend to harry he could have been if he wasn’t a shitlord

like, having someone who questioned dumbledore’s authority and had intimate knowledge of how the death eaters work would have been really good for harry in book five? but nope, he just has to mess everything up

okay you are the best person to ask this: could yyou please explain everything in the harry potter fandom (ships, what people hate etc.) beause i just read the books and i am confused

you r asking the wrong person bud i’ve only read like 2 of the books …….. one day i’ll dwell into them properly 

I think this is a really understated, important moment. Because they’re talking about the guy who (they think) betrayed and killed Remus’s best friends, and Remus is still cautioning mercy. He’s still saying, “there are things that aren’t okay to do to anyone, no matter what.”

Flash forward to Harry in the last book standing in front of Voldemort and telling him to “try for some remorse.” Not telling him to go fuck himself. Giving him advice to try to save his soul. Recognizing that there is nothing noble or good about denying a person, no matter how horrible that person is, their last chance at humanity.

So Remus deserve a giant hug for 1) being a great teacher, and 2) just everything cause gosh darnit, Queen JK, why did you have to make everything so hard for him??

  • Harry: When we get married I want to take your last name, then I don't have to be Harry Potter anymore.
  • Draco: Merlin no! I want to take yours, do you have any idea how people sneer at the Malfoy name after my dad screwed everything up??
  • Harry: Malfoy!
  • Draco: Potter!
  • Harry: Look, why don't we both change our last names? Pick a new one.
  • Draco: Hm... What did you have in mind?
  • Harry: I want to be named after one of the bravest men I ever knew, how about Dumbl--
  • Draco: I swear to Merlin, Potter, if you say Dumbledore I will throttle you.

Ginevra Molly Potter (née Weasley) (b. 11 August, 1981) was a pure-blood witch, the youngest of Arthur and Molly Weasley's seven children, and the first female to be born into the Weasley line for several generations. She attended the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1992 to 1999 and was sorted into the Gryffindor House.

Happy Birthday, Ginny! (08/11)

Honestly the whole subplots and holes jk Rowling gives us in interviews and such is great and the cursed child concept was grand but PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WHY DO WE NOT HAVE A WEASLEY FAMILY 9 POV (AUTO)BIOGRAPHY.

In HP we see mainly Ron and Ginny and that’s great but i want CHAPTERS of FRED AND GEORGES PRANKS AND TRIUMPHS AND DETENTIONS AND JUST HOW THEY FIGURED OUT TO SAY “I SOLEMNLY SWEAR I AM UP TO NO GOOD” . I want to know the full story of how Arthur and Molly met and such and why bill is so damn rock n roll. Why Charlie chose to be a dragon man (and cough cough asexually fabulous just an idea) why Percy acted like such a prick.

I want to know what Ginny wrote in that diary in the first place (bc you KNOW there’s some juicy weasley drama in there) and how Ron came to love Hermione.

I want ginnys and Charlie’s diary entries and George and Fred’s doodles on parchment. Molly’s recipes and Arthur’s blue prints for Muggle contraptions. AND RON god the freaking drama that boy has think of what he thought meeting HARRY POTTER FOR THR FIRST TIME!!!!!!Every postcard and letter and sketches and awards and EVERYTHING WE’VE BEEN ROBBED OF.
