Friendly reminder that the Harry Potter universe is not meant to be an idyllic society. Ongoing themes of the novels include an unfair class system, a wealth divide, government corruption, and general intolerance. JKR purposefully wrote the wizarding world to be a flawed society. So please don’t attack JKR because of a lack of diversity in sexuality and race, heavy patriarchal influences, and the appearance of stereotypes. It isn’t meant to be a perfect world but a reflection of our own, and the values of the wizarding world should not be assumed to be the values of the Harry Potter series or of J.K. Rowling.

Okay, I had this major realization reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows last night. Harry, Voldemort and Snape represent the Three Brothers from The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

[ I ] Voldemort being the one who wanted the wand to defeat anyone that could bring death to him. [ I ]

[ O ] Snape being the one who wanted to rejoin his long lost love. [ O ]

 [ ∆ ] And Harry being the one who greeted death as his friend. [ ∆ ]

So I’ve only read Deathly Hallows like three or four times now, but it’s been awhile. So my mind promptly exploded. There are of course numerous things that the three have in common as well.

Don’t we love literature? And don’t we love Harry Potter? And J. K. Rowling?

Pottermore: I give you! THE PATRONUS QUIZ!

Today on the internet probably: Most search on animals ever.

Pottermore: You’re welcome.

JK Rowling confirmed that

the first movie of fantastic beasts is set in 1926, the last one will take place in 1945. So again: the first one will take place in 1926 … The last (fifth) one … 19 years later. SHE DID IT AGAIN AND SHE WILL NEVER STOP I AM SO DONE FUUUUUUCK

“Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power to that enables us to empathize with humans whose experiences we have never shared." J. K. Rowling
