there are characters and then there is albus dumbledore

  • you: what's wrong
  • me: nothing
  • me, internally: why is dumbledore lauded as the best thing that every happened to the wizarding world when professor minerva mcgonagall, o.m (first class), was clearly more deserving of that title. she actually stood up more to umbridge than dumbledore did, and was more of a guiding force to her students than dumbledore was, actually personally helping them with their studies whereas dumbledore was only interested in harry potter. mcongagall took four stunning spells to the chest and came back angrier; she stood up to death eaters and snape and voldemort and even neville's grandmother, and it is a crime that she never got acknowledged for that in universe

Seriously though it would have been so easy to have canon gay characters in the Harry Potter series. All this stuff that JK Rowling said about not having enough time or would distract from the original trio is nonsense. Case in point:

Seamus gave a great roar of delight then ran to give Dean a lung crushing hug before pulling him down into a desperate kiss that was hungrily returned. Harry supposed ‘best friends’ was no longer an accurate description of the pair. 

or:

There were duels all over the stairs and in the Hall, Death Eaters everywhere Harry looked. He saw Alicia and Katie share a passionate kiss before they raced down the corridor to join the battle.

or maybe:

“Did I know in my heart of hearts what Gellert Grindelwald was? I think I did, but I closed my eyes. I chose to be blinded by my love for him. A choice that has haunted me ever since” 

or perhaps:

As Harry entered the great hall he walked past Lavender and Parvati who were sitting opposite the latter’s twin with their bodies pressed close together while their hands held the others in a death like grip that showed no signs of ever being let go.

or even:

“Albus Severus” Harry said quietly, so that nobody but Ginny could hear him, who tactfully turned to talk to Oliver and Marcus as they waved off their own three boys. 

See all I had to do was just add in a sentence or not even that and suddenly ….. wow a gay character. That wasn’t too hard now was it JK.

Chapter seventeen: The Man with Two Faces

‘How did I get the Stone out of the Mirror?’
‘Ah, now, I’m glad you asked me that. It was one of my more brilliant ideas, and between you and me, that’s saying something. You see, only one who wanted to find the Stone - find it, but not use it - would be able to get it, otherwise they’d just see themselves making gold or drinking Elixir of Life. My brain surprises even me sometimes … Now, enough questions. I suggest you make a start on these sweets. Ah! Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans! I was unfortunate enough in my youth to come across a vomit-flavoured one, and since then I’m afraid I’ve rather lost my liking for them - but I think I’ll be safe with a nice toffee, don’t you?’
He smiled and popped the golden-brown bean into his mouth. Then he choked and said, ‘Alas! Earwax!’

It’s officially been 10 years since JKR told us Dumbledore was gay. Since that time, in all the expanded canon she has published and stated, she has given us … nothing. That’s it. That’s all we get. One sad old gay wizard, whose one known (possibly unreciprocated) gay crush as a teenager was on a fascist, and ended in heartbreak and tragedy. Sorry if I’m not more grateful for this ~awesome~ bit of representation. Wouldn’t it be great if someday she gave us more than crumbs?

Ok but hear me out:
What we really need is a Harry Potter TV show.
Season 1 will be all about the founders, their youth, how they met each other how they founded Hogwarts and the drama with Salazar Slytherin.
Season 2 will be loads of additional characters during the first centuries of the school and just a lot of regular Hogwarts stuff BECAUSE WE ALL WANT MORE OF THAT. AND THEN
Season 3 will show all of our favourite professors attending Hogwarts and give us loads of information about their backgrounds and THEN FINALLY IN
Season 4 we will move on to THE MARAUDERS AGE. Young James. Young Sirius. Young Remus. Young Peter. Young Lily. Young everyone-we-love.
Just. Imagine.

26.06.17 Harry Potter 20th Anniversary!

I wanted to write this perfect thing here about my love for the wizard who stepped into my world 20 years ago, who so unashamedly stood out when he stepped into Privet Drive. The man who didn’t care that everything from his name to his high heeled buckled boots were unwelcome on the street he had just appeared on. The man who just wanted to teach kids magic, who would have loved to go to all his ex students weddings and hold their new babies, you know, the important stuff that never had a chance. But in the end, for me, no one summed up his character better than McGonnagall:

Dumbledore would have been happier than anyone to think that there was a little more love in the world. - Ch 29. HBP

so happy birthday HP, I honestly cannot remember when you were not an important part of my life.

seriously though the Harry Potter universe is so beautiful because it is probably the only fictional world where I care with all my heart and soul for so many characters that aren’t just the protagonist and his or her sidekick like I can think of 20 characters off the bat that I would fight u over just to defend their honour
