Totally irrelevant but hilarious. So one of my friends is getting into the Harry Potter movie series, and I could tell she was suffering just like I was when I got into the series. I mean who isn’t over Sirius, Snape, and Dumbledore. ⚡️
Magical creatures? No I haven't seen any- *trips and ten bowtruckles fall out of sleeve* oh those aren't mine I'm just holding them for a friend- *frantically tries to pick them up, niffler falls out of back pocket* right, if you'll just let me explain- *turns around and three murtlaps, a herd of erumpets, one litter of curps and the entirety of New York's dog pound fall out of his coat* LISTEN-
Fantastic Beasts discussion: Was Ariana Dumbledore an obscurus?
While still unconfirmed, Ariana Dumbledore was potentially an Obscurial too, as the description of her “illness” given by her brother Aberforth fit the description of an Obscurial; “It destroyed her, what they did: she was never right again. She wouldn’t use magic, but she couldn’t get rid of it; it turned her inward and drove her mad, it exploded out of her when she couldn’t control it, and at times she was strange and dangerous. But mostly she was sweet and scared and harmless”. Furthermore, if she was indeed an Obscurial, her interactions with a young Grindelwald, could also explain why the Dark Wizard was later so interested by the power of Obscurus. Ariana also lived longer than the average Obscurial, having died at the age of 14, whereas most Obscurials, with the exception of Credence Barebone, didn’t live past age 10. If Ariana was an Obscurial, then this was a fact kept hidden by the Dumbledores, since it was widely believed no Obscurial had existed for at least two hundred years, even thirty years after her death.
