28.09.16 Two hour study session in the library! Making sure I’ve got all the books I need in a list so I can go get them later, but I’ve already picked up Marx’s theory of history. This library gives me chills and also I feel like I’m at hogwarts. I hope it never wears off. I played quidditch today for the first time too! Really fun - I scored a goal and tackled two people to the ground! Bake off tonight and then to the pub! Xxxxx emily
Remember this guy? The swooping evil? Of course you do, because he’s amazing (and I feel like he kind of epitomizes slytherins but that’s a different thing).
And remember when Newt squeezed its venom out and explained its properties? The fix-all for the movie was foreshadowed when Newt explained to Jacob that the Swooping Evil’s venom is a powerful memory wiper.
“That’s all fine, but what’s the point to this cheesy post?” You may be asking yourself. And I’m getting to that. Please be patient.
Newt says that the venom wipes bad memories. He doesn’t say anything about the good memories.
So when Jacob stepped into the magical thunderbird-swooping-venom-rain, he lost all the memories of magic that weren’t pleasant (like running from a sex-crazed erumpent, being taken away by MACUSA, watching Credence’s obscurus destroy NYC, etc).
He “woke up” with all his good memories intact, but there were numerous holes where the bad memories had been. Without his friends in front of him anymore, and with New York looking as normal as ever, he chalked it all up to dreams (as no-majs/muggles are apt to do).
This explains how he remembers Queenie and the beasts (new movie idea disney) and doesn’t question what an Occamy is (Newt slipped up a little in his letter) but can’t explain how he remembers them. In the next movies he’ll probably get all his memories back together and figure out it wasn’t a dream after all.
I don’t really have a snappy ending to this or whatever, but I hope you enjoyed my theory, anyway.
(Swooping Evil Slytherins coming soon maybe probably when I feel like it)
We call non-magical humans 'Muggles', the roots of which are in the word 'Mug' which is an English term for someone who is easily fooled, owing to the fact that they refuse to take notice of the existence of magic even when it's staring them in the face...
SOME HOOMAN NO MAGICAL
BECAUZ NO MAGIC
SO THEY NO-MAJ
AIN'T WE SMART
*sigh loudly from across the Atlantic*
Finally seeing a Hufflepuff as a main character. Seeing that they are still strong and able to what others do. Kids growing up know will be able to look up to a Hufflepuff instead of a Gryffindor, knowing that it’s okay to be different like them.
