So. After watching Fantastic Beasts my biggest come away was this: Albus Dumbledore was everyone’s most problematic of all problematic faves.
It was bad enough when leaving Harry Potter in the care of Vernon ‘No Post on Sundays’ and Petunia ‘What Will the Neighbours Think’ Dursley was just a case of pesky ol’ child neglect and endangerment, BUT NO! Not only was Harry left in the care of people who were boderline abusive (horcrux or no treating a child like that is unacceptable) but he could have ACTUALLY EXPLODED INTO A
SUPERMAGICEVILBLOBSCURIAL. I’ve been doing some thinking about this and I’ve come to the conclusion that, given what we know about the situation, Dumbledore may have actively wanted that to happen.
