My second attempt to use Procreate, which I think turned out somewhat better than the previous one;; I started enjoying myself a LOT from the end of the very first piece to this one and I don’t regret it one bit.

So here, have Ginny in that autumn yellow aesthetic that I love so much:”)

“There was one time where Michael Gambon and Alan Rickman - and I think [the director] was kind of co-ordinating it - um, took the opportunity to uh, play a practical joke on me […] They had put a fart machine into my sleeping bag.- Daniel Radcliffe [x]

I was hesitant to post this because of the drama surrounding it, but I can’t keep this to myself anymore.

Many years ago, when Goblet of Fire came out (we’re talking… 2000 or 2001, I think?) I was a moderator at a now-defunct Harry Potter forum.

When Nagini’s character was introduced, there was a girl on the forum (who we will call “Kate” for storytelling purposes, and also I don’t remember her name anymore lmao) who was CONVINCED Nagini was a human transfigured into a snake.

Now, the rest of the forum generally didn’t care about this theory. People pointed out that if Voldemort wanted to control someone, he would just do it. What’s the point of making them into a snake? Aesthetic? But Kate defended her theory.

“They say in the book she’s not like a regular snake! Don’t you think it’s strange they never say where she came from?” I can’t remember every point she made about it, but she really believed it.

“Suuuuuure, Kate!” we all said.

At the end of the day, we were all there to partake in fandom bullshit. We had a great time. But time passed, people moved on, and forums got deleted.

But when they revealed Nagini to be a “Maledictus” recently, my first thought was of Kate, even after all these years.

She got a few details wrong, but somewhere out there, a now-grown woman watched the Fantastic Beasts trailer, saw Nagini, and probably whispered “I fucking knew it” under her breath.

And I find that hilarious. Never let go of your crack theories, kids.
