Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain, and an athlete, and a basket case, a princess, and a criminal. Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the breakfast club.

Saturday, March 24,1984. Shermer High School, Shermer, Illinois, 60062. Dear Mr. Vernon, We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That’s the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed.

Voldemort and Harry: Names

I would just like to point out how familiar Voldemort is with Harry’s name.

All throughout the series we can tell who is on good terms with Harry by how they refer to him.

Dumbledore: *gently* Harry.

Severus: *sneered* Potter!

Draco: *jeeringly* Scarhead!

Hermione: *happily* Harry!

Umbridge: *tittered* Mr. Potter!

Vernon: *enraged* POTTAH!

Molly: *relieved* Harry.

Usually, the people he is on good terms with, call him by his given name. And those who use his given name who aren’t close to him, are usually trying to get something from him.

And then we have Voldemort who literally calls him ‘Harry’ or ‘Harry Potter’ on a constant basis. He calls Harry by name more often than anyone else in the series. And he does so unnecessarily. As if he needs to remind Harry that Voldemort is speaking to him.

Voldemort already has issues with being an attention seeker - he monologued in GoF for a whole chapter, fyi - but it seems that he really likes to have Harry’s attention above all others.

Voldemort does not refer to many by their given names, either in the books or in the films. Usually given names are saved for his ‘favorites’. People he finds uninteresting, annoying, or worthless are referred to by their surnames.

Barty, Bellatrix, Severus, sometimes Lucius, and Nagini most certainly are favorites. And yet others are: Wormtail, Crabbe, Macnair, Dumbledore, mudbloods, blood traitors etc… It shows whom he actually holds in higher regard.

Interesting how Harry slots into that group of people who Voldemort actually calls by their given name.

It was something I noticed early on and to this day I still find it interesting and tend to use it a lot in my fanfics.

Lord Voldemort’s obsession with Harry Potter goes far deeper than just wanting to kill him.

basically reasons I'm always gonna be alone.
  • <p> <b><p></b> <b>me:</b> Harry potter is, like, the gateway fandom. You start reading the books, and suddenly you want to climb ferris wheels instead of ride them, a ball point pen is your weapon, you have a sonic screwdriver and carry salt everywhere, you're awkwardly in love with Sherlock Holmes and you don't really know how any of it happened, but you're pretty sure it started because Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Dursley of 4 privet drive were proud to say they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.<p/><b>friend:</b> * takes earphones out* are you done talking about them yet?<p/><b>me:</b> *opens mouth*<p/><b>friend:</b> *bangs head on table*<p/><b>me:</b> so... as I was saying, hot vampire wizard roommates...<p/></p><p/></p>

Next time you think jeff priorities women and people of colour as well as his favourite whites, remember these;

- he gave the “first beta to gain control quickly” stance to a white man so he could come back and tame the black man and woman (isaac; boyd and erica)

- He let a white prick who abused his girlfriend back on the show yet refuses to bring back her close friend of colour. (Jackson; Lydia and Kira)

- He let an abusive white man hurt his best friend and justified it with father-son issues and never let the white man apologise yet implied that it’s really the abused friend of colour that should do the apologising. (Stiles; Scott)

- He had four women and a black man killed to increase the man pain of a white male (derek; boyd, Laura, Talia, paige and erica)

- He gave little to no development to a black man but was so upset when he couldn’t give a white man a parental figure (another white man) even though he could’ve had a strong brown woman be his parental figure. (Isaac, chris; boyd and melissa)

- He made one of his strong female characters forcefully call a killer, the reason her friends have suffered- someone who doesn’t even care about her, her dad when the man that actually gave a damn about her and missed her the years she was gone was completely written off whilst the white male abuser got to stay in the show. (Peter; malia TATE and Henry)

- He let go a Hawaiian character with so much potential in being part of the reoccurring characters with his very relevant last name and connection with members of the pack yet was so eager to bring back multiple white serial killing men. (Danny; Theo, Peter)

- He made multiple season and episodes that were female centric revolve around an irrelevant white male in which the fandom soon gave credit to the males instead of the females who survived tons of shit. (Stiles, theo; malia and lydia s5)

- He pulled a stupid storyline out of his ass where he practically kicked off a woman of colour yet used her powers and weapon to bring back a (white) man. (Theo; kira) yes i understand cody is a POC but he’s playing a white boy, seeing his parents and sister were white - if i’m wrong about them please do correct me.

- He reduced the growth and development of a strong woman to the lap dog of white man even without the knowledge of his existence. (Stiles; lydia)

- He let an irrelevant white man survive almost deaths too many times yet is planning on killing a brown woman who is the heart behind the soul and head of the show. (Sheriff; Melissa and Scott)

- Sidelined a hispanic male for the likes of his white male friend (does this need to be further distinguished?Stiles; scott)

- Sidelined a black male for the likes of his white male friend (again does it need to be distinguished? isaac; boyd)

- Reduced a brown girl to the love interest of a white man and refused to give her any development with her new found powers for two whole seasons yet had more than enough time to have her kiss and have sex with said white male. (Liam; hayden)

- Put a black boy and a woman in danger then had the pack (the leads of colour) save them then gave all credit to the white boy who had two seconds of screen time during the actual saving (Mason, malia, scott and kira; stiles and his stupid ass father)

- Had the fucking sheriff of the town vow to burn every evidence against his white son being a murderer but in the same breath had said white son’s friend of colour arrested for a murder she had no knowledge of. (Sheriff, stiles; kira)

- Brings back a white man who’s storyline is complete to save the day but rejected the likes of a black woman coming to save the day with her mercenary skills that are well needed in the season of hunting. (Derek; Braeden)

- Is bringing back two abusive white ex girlfriends in a season the male mentioned above is returning yet not his black girlfriends who’s literally the reason he’s happier nowadays. (Kate, jennifer; derek and braedon)

- Finally added another black woman (we’ve only seen about three) but gave her a villainous storyline where she’s vicious and cold blood with her students. (Tamara Monroe)

- He continuously is willing to bring back an old white man who just so conveniently has knowledge of anything yet not the black woman who relevantly has knowledge of the supernatural world (gerard; morrell)

- Disrespectfully implies the Magical Niger trope into a black man’s storyline and then never really mentions it again (deaton)

- Has the two black siblings (mentioned above) be loyal lap dogs (or druids) for white people without hesitation or hatred of their stance (basically slaves??) yet has a whole season revolving around the white ex druid who was so disrespected and walked on (jennifer; deaton and morrell)

- Is a gay man that fetishises white young boys and has hetero ships as his centre relationships where the male is more pronounced in the relationship, hardly has any gay relationships, never represents the community he’s part of yet wants to praised for no homophobes in bh. Has never explored a lesbian relationship between main characters.

- Fetishises the small amount gay (interracial)couples by only having them make out, never giving them as much development as the white hetero-relationships but also never gives them a proper sex scene or ever implies it. (Dathan and Morey; Jeff D)

- Kicks out a woman of colour, never implies that her relationship with the main is over then has her boyfriend hook up with her bestfriend. (Kira; scalia)

- Doesn’t understand the true meaning of friendship especially the friendship between girls and has them snaking on each other for the sake of ships (malia and Lydia; kira and malia and allison)

- Continuously mentions a dead white girl and implies she saves the day even though she’s literally dead whilst refusing to credit the woman of colour who ACTUALLY saved the day (allison; kira)

- SIDELINES HIS FUCKING MAIN CHARACTER OF COLOUR FOR HIS WHITE MALE FAVE (scott; stiles)

- FETISHISES THE CRAP OUT OF WHITE MEN AND TREATS WOMEN AND PEOPLE OF COLOUR VERY POORLY! (Trash wolf; teen wolf)

No one knew who the tabby belonged to, though they presumed Mrs Figg as the cat had been seen to enter her house. However, it also seemed rather fond of number four’s back garden and the green eyed boy with whom it played most Sunday afternoons when the Dursleys went out. Of course McGonagall would never admit she had a fondness for playing with Harry when she was supposed to be keeping an eye on him.

Dear Mr. Vernon,

We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did was wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us – in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That’s the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed.

Harry Potter is like the gateway fandom. You start reading the books, then all of a sudden you have a sonic screwdriver, you want to go to Rivendell, and you have this awkward fascination with Sherlock Holmes. And you don’t really know how any of it happened, but you’re pretty sure it started with Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Dursley of Four Privet Drive who were proud to say that they were perfectly normal thank you very much.
