I avoided Harry Potter since it came out because I was such a rebel and I was a wee bit too old for it when it made a splash. But yesterday I chanced to watch The a Goblet Of Fire on HBOGO and I now really want to get into the series. Any advice for a 28 year old who wants to start in the series?

OH GOODNESS! That is so freakin’ awesome that you want to read the series! You won’t regret it, they are seriously well written and just great no matter your age! :D 

I think the only piece of advice I have is that, as an adult, the first two books really do feel more like kids books. They’re shorter and they have more basic good vs evil tropes. They’re still really great, so be sure to power through them because once the 3rd book starts, phew, that’s when things get good, and when the really interesting stuff starts happening! 

Now go curl up with a cup of tea and READ THEM ALL! :D

by some incredible stroke of luck i ended up seeing harry potter and the cursed child a few months back in march. dude. i went to london thinking that i was just glad to be away from all the stuff at uni and all the work and bs i had to do, and i was gonna have a chill time and ditch my work for a bit. im not really a major harry potter fan, i havent read the books and ive only watched the films, and at the time i didnt realise how goddamn incredible a gift it was to actually see this amazing show. its incredible. it is a truly brilliant show. i have never been this impressed by any performance anywhere. anthony boyle and noma dumezwani some of my faves. they were incredible. i finally broke out of my crappy drawing block because i just had to do some drawings of them. god just. harry potter, maaan.

So this happened..

Me and professor: *on the train ride going home*
Me and professor: *passes by a Cursed Child ad*
Me: *cringes*
Professor: Have you read Harry Potter?
Me: Yes
Professor: All seven of the books?
Me: Yes
Professor: Oh, then what’s that book about? Is it a prequel? *refering to the Cursed Child*
Me: *is massive Scorbus and Drarry trash* *flashbacks to all the shipping feels* It’s about their kids *dies*

I’ve noticed that tumblr seems to have become, quite rightly, a Minerva McGonagall fan site. So whilst I am sure I’m not the first to do so, I really wanna share one of my (many) favourite McGonagall moments - how she handles things when Neville doesn’t get the required grade for his Transfiguration NEWT.

‘Why do you want to continue with Transfiguration anyway? I never got the impression that you particuarly enjoyed it.’
Neville looked miserable and muttered something about ‘my grandmother wants’.
‘Humph,’ snorted Professor McGonagall. ‘It’s high time your grandmother learned to be proud of the grandson she’s got, rather than the one she thinks she ought to have - particularly after what happened at the Ministry.’
Neville turned very pink and blinked confusedly; Professor McGonagall had never paid him a compliment before. 
‘I’m sorry, Longbottom, but I cannot let you into my NEWT class. I see that you have an “Exceeds Expectations” in Charms, however - why not try for a NEWT in Charms?’
‘My grandmother thinks Charms is a soft option,’ mumbled Neville.
’Take Charms,’ said Professor McGonagall, ‘and I shall drop Augusta a line reminding her that just because she failed her Charms OWL, the subject is not necessarily worthless.’
