I find it funny how Cursed Child is being denounced as canon due to “plot holes.” Yet the story had no real plotholes at all? Harry’s hurting scar? Easily a warning of Voldie’s possible return due to time warping. Voldie having a kid? It was never disproven in the original story, and can fit if you take time to think on it. Cedric going bad is not a plothole, it’s an alternative reality. The time turner is a NEW invention that goes back actual YEARS instead of hours. It’s not a plothole.

I am really annoyed with the idea that Slytherins are always cool, calm and unemotional. Most of the Slytherins we see are very emotional, and make a lot of important decisions based on strong emotion, and even foil themselves because they get too emotional. They’ll absolutely tear themselves apart for whatever they love, whether that’s a person or power. You have to feel strongly about something to be truly ambitious.

I MEAN JUST LOOK AT THE EXAMPLES. Someone insulted you/your family/someone you care about? Forget the snide comebacks, it’s time to SCREAM, YELL, CURSE THEM WITH BOILS. Family doesn’t approve of your boyfriend? ELOPE, it doesn’t matter whether this turns out to be a terrible decision. Boy Who Lived refuses to be your friend? OBSESS OVER HIM FOR THE NEXT SEVEN YEARS. Telepathic Dark Lord is threatening your son/childhood friend? Lie on the spot AND RISK A TORTUROUS DEATH TO DEFY HIM. Dark Lord is threatening your house elf? DRINK POISON AND THROW YOURSELF INTO A PIT OF ZOMBIES.

Slytherin is the House of cunning, not the House of rational decision-making??

  • harry: i'm sorry ginny...i've got to go and hunt horcruxes to stop voldemort...i have to break up with you because you'll be in danger too...

Tonks: /Sometimes it doesn’t matter how I change my hair, or my eyes, or my face… sometimes everything just feels wrong/

Tonks: /Like being caught inside the wrong body/ 

Tonks: /It took years for me to figure out why this happened, and what I needed to do on those days to fix it/ 

Tonks: /gender is about as existent as Voldys nose/ 


Remus: Hey Tonks have you-… wow

Tonks: is this weird?… 

Remus: Quite the opposite actually… you look great 

((OOC: when you get tired of peoples ignorance whilst also loving the idea of a gender fluid Tonks)) 

I tried to sketch out what I remember about the Voldy AR robes in HPCC! There’s a high collared shirt that buttons down, and the robes have a wide top flap thingie (whatever they’re called). The hem is shorter and the fabric is waaaay heavier than the light floaty/flappy material used for the original Hogwarts robes. All in all it just looks really restricting and tight. (also can we appreciate how thin Scorpius looks in his skinny pants? His legs look even skinnier in the Voldy timeline. Poor guy.) I’ll have to pay closer attention this Friday for more details on the robes and especially on the back, but yes! Have this for now! :D

While Writing The Cursed Child
  • JKR: Okay, so we have a ridiculous amount of queerbaiting, Harry being a straight-up bitch to his son, this whole play sounds like a half-assed fanfiction, and they have to read with their own eyes about why Snape was a good guy after all. What else could I do to piss off my readers?
  • JKR:
  • JKR:
  • JKR:
  • JKR: I know, how about we give Voldemort a daughter and force them to imagine Voldy and Bellatrix doing the diddly-do. That'll make them mad.
