jkr why

honestly, why does jkr think harry “ptsd” potter is gonna immediately settle down in to a long term relationship with someone he’s known since he was 12 and it’s all going to work out perfectly fine and he’s not going to be restless and unhappy and irritable which are all traits we have seen of him. let ginny realize she’s into luna lovegood and let harry have several years of living in a cottage in the woods away from everything so he can find peace again and then let harry become, ding ding ding, a professor at hogwarts because he’s better at teaching than anything else and him wanting to be an auror at fifteen is like wanting to be a firefighter as a kid

Guys, real talk tho

Thinking about my abused son, Harry James Potter, post-Epilogue makes me feel SAD AS FUCK.

No offense, but for me the idea of him being a father of three, a married man, with a job in the Ministry and a bunch of abandonement issues he never really had the chance to let out, let me feel like I need to take a breath of fresh air too. Like I’m a prisoner of his behalf.

I know it was intended as an “happy ending”, but the Epilogue makes me feel cold, especially for my fave character who is Harry.

Let him be free.

The Misunderstood Hogwarts House - Slytherin

So for those of you who don’t know, Hogwarts is a school of Magic (officially named Hogwarts School of Whichcraft and Wizardry) from the book and film series called Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling.

There are four Houses in Hogwarts, each named after one of the four founders of the school: Godric Gryffindor, Rowena Ravenclaw, Helga Hufflepuff and Salazar Slytherin.

Rereading the Harry Potter series, I noticed the prejudice against Slytherin House is positively horrendous.

The first mention of Slytherin is in the second chapter of the first book of the Harry Potter series (Harry potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) in Madam Malkins ‘Robes for all occasions.’ And naturally, Draco Malfoy - the epitome Slytherin - introduces us to the house. He is depicted as an arrogant, posh, upper-class, selfish snob and instantly makes most of us abhor him and by extension - Slytherin and the Malfoy name and family.

The second mention of Slytherin House appears later in the same chapter when Harry asks Hagrid what Slytherin is. He explains to Harry that it is a house at Hogwarts. Hagrid then proceeds to build the foundation of Harry’s hate towards Slytherin and everything associated with it -  "There’s not a single witch or wizard who went bad who wasn’t in Slytherin.” (rubeus Hagrid).

Before I go on, I would like to explain what the official and official traits of Slytherin are.
Official:
Ambition
Power
Influence
Shrewdness
Cunning
cleverness
resourcefulness
determination

The latter three are mentioned in Book 2 By Dumbledore.

Unofficial (These I shall explain in more detail)

House Unity - This is displayed several times in the books. Slytherin House never sorts out disaccords in public. When around other people not in their house, Slytherins appear aloof, supportive and proud.

Abuse - Now, before you scowl angrily at your device and move onto the next post, hear me out. This isn’t a trait that applies to many students but after a little bit of research I found that children that have been abused either physically or emotionally in their childhood are more likely to be more controlling, ambitious, cunning and mature than other children their age. This is a result of their need to be cunning in situations in which require self-preservation. This can be seen with Tom Riddle. Bullied as a child, he became cunning, resourceful, powerful, manipulative and ambitious. The situations he found himself in, required him to be like that so that he could avoid any physical damage. Harry Potter is also an example of this. As much as some Slytherin haters like to deny, Harry Potter has many Slytherin traits: Resourcefulness, determination, power, influence, shrewdness, cunning, cleverness and quick wit (the films failed to show this - they were extremely biased and showed an extremely Gryffindor Harry). Harry was almost sorted into Slytherin but the hat decided to grant him his wish and sorted him into Gryffindor. People who have been deprived of power are often more likely to crave power over their own lives.

Aristocracy - Slytherins seem to all be pure-bloods and and some of them aristocrats. It was surprisingly hard to find any information about this topic, but I managed to find out that there are at least four ‘Most Ancient and Noble Houses’: Malfoy, Longbottom, Black and Greengrass. Three of these  Houses are almost always in Slytherin. I also managed to find out that most purebloods are seen as the nobility of the Wizarding World. Curiously, most of them are in Slytherin. I assume that this is because pureblood children are often taught how to be cunning and ambitious. They are brought up to value the wizarding aristocratic traits - many of which coincide with Slytherin traits.

Blood Purity - Many Slytherins are purebloods as already stated above.

Sarcasm

Quick wit

The general idea is, that these traits make people evil. But isn’t this a contradiction? Harry himself has most of these traits, and yet he’s a ‘hero’ and a completely benevolent and altruistic person, simply because he’s a Gryffindor.

Evil. That is what most witches and wizards perceive Slytherins as.

Before I rebuttal this terrible accusation i just want to say how hilariously moronic this is.

Slytherin being one of the four houses of Hogwarts is one fourth of the schools population. JK. Rowling stated in an interview that Hogwarts houses more or less 1.000 students, a fourth of which have to be either Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff or Slytherin. This means that 250 people are Slytherins. Can you honestly believe that 250 children between the ages of 11-18 are evil? That 250-f****ing-students are sadistic, homocidal psychopaths intent on following a clearly man man?

One might argue that several students in Harry’s year ended up as Slytherins. I don’t deny that… It has been confirmed, that Draco Malfoy, Vincent Crabbe, Gregory Goyle, Theodore Nott and Pansy Parkinson were all in Slytherin and ended up becoming Slytherins. I would also like to remind you that all of these students had at least one parent who was already involved with the Death Eaters. They had literally no way of escaping their fate.

What often disgusts me is that there are only four Slytherins which ended up ‘reforming’ themselves. Only four Slytherins that in the eyes of the public were ‘good’. Personally this disgust me. Slytherins are depicted as universally bad people. There isn’t a single likeable Slytherin. Not in the Order of the Phoenix, nor in the Auror Corps, nor in Dumbledore’s Army.

Horace Slughorn
Andromeda Tonks
Severus Snape
Draco Malfoy

These are the only people in Slytherins who have been depicted as likeable…  Isn’t it odd, that Severus Snape, one of the most unpleasant and discriminating people (as pointed out by Harry) is one of the most likeable Slytherins?

Essentially, the only Slytherins that contributed to the side trying to defeat the genocidal maniac aka, Voldemort, were Severus Snape, Horace Slughorn, Regulus Black and Andromeda Tonks - and these were all exceptions to the general social rule that Slytherin was evil.

To summarise; Slytherins aren’t evil. Their traits make them seem underhanded and sly, and people don’t often like being outsmarted (which is something Slytherins often do), hence that is the reason why society collectively bullies them.

I just want you to give Slytherin a chance - look behind all that snark and sarcasm. Focus on their ingenuity and talent in manipulation. Personally I admire Slytherins for their self-preservation, and ability to gently manipulate a conversation in any direction (as seen with Horace Slughorn and Tom Riddle).

anonymous asked:

I kinda feel like a lot of Snape or Dumbledore hate wouldn't be there if Harry hadn't name his child after them and called them brave. I think that caused many problems because Harry had a lot of people in his life that deserve the same grattitude and never understood his decision to choose them over others.

Well, people in fandom sure try to claim there were better characters for Harry to name his kids after. But imo Albus Severus’ names are perfect. And meaningful on a literary level, which a lot of fandomers ignore. 

Snape and Dumbledore both died fighting Voldemort. And yes, so did Remus, but he has Teddy to carry on his name. Hagrid didn’t die. Regulus was only a distant historical figure to Harry. Fred had five brothers to carry on his name if they chose to. Harry chose men who sacrificed their lives fighting Voldemort and who had no one else to preserve their legacies. 

“Snape died for Harry out of love for Lily. Harry paid him tribute in forgiveness and gratitude.” – JKR

“In honouring Snape, Harry hoped in his heart that he too would be forgiven. The deaths at the Battle of Hogwarts would haunt Harry forever.“ – JKR 

There are reasons why Harry chose those names, reasons that tie directly into the series’ core themes. Rejecting them shows a lack of understanding of Harry as a character and the story as a whole.

I have to say something again.

To be honest, I feel like JKR saw the popularity of Drarry as a way to mock and bait Scorbus (their sons) into an obvious gay relationship queerbait and because a gay ship was loved (their fathers) she used Albus and Scorpius to her advantage. I see a lot of people commenting on my posts or messaging me saying she didn’t have anything to do with Cursed Child but why was her approval necessary? If Jack Thorne was able to write anything and publish the play, why was JKR needed in the first place? And she had to give a green light for the final version before Cursed Child was able to get sold. Albus and Scorpius are not friendly at all. I wish hardcore HP fans would admit her faults. She may have created the story but that doesn’t mean she deserves a free pass for the wrong decisions she made.

     “Did the girl suffer, then?” Jack asks, guessing the ending when I pause.

     “Yes,” I say, rolling my eyes at the interruption, “for a while.”

     “But not for always,” he notes. “Eventually she was happy?” he prompts hopefully. 

     “She marries a king,” I say, trying to recall the details of the ending.

     “Sure,” Jack presses, “but is she happy?”

      I think about it

     “I hope so,” I say.

                            - The Heiress

But guys
  • Potterheads: oMG why didn't JKR make Dramione canon?!? It'll be so good to see a pure-blood marrying a muggle-born!!!!
  • JKR: *tries to redeem herself by making ScoRose canon on the Cursed Child*
  • Potterheads: nO FUCK YOU WE WANT SCORBUS!!!!
  • JKR: *presents herself to Voldemort* just fucking kill me.

The excuses against Scorbus

“They are only 14, there is time.”

“If they can’t have sex, it’s not supposed to happen yet. Why would JKR sexualize children!”

“It’s just two male friends with a deep bond.”

“There was no such thing as queerbaiting. Both boys are straight.”

“Rowling didn’t intend to make Scorbus a couple. Why look for something that isn’t there?”

“Albus and Scorpius didn’t discover their sexuality yet.”

Only for gay ships these excuses exist…….
