Harry Potter: *knows nothing about Quidditch until he’s 11*
*rides a broom dangerously and flawlessly the first time he picks it up*
*so good after 5 seconds in the air McGonagall convinces Dumbledore to change the rules about Quidditch age requirements*
*youngest seeker in 100 years*
*compared to Charlie Weasley and predicted to make the national team before even playing a match*
Fan reaction: Cool
Ginny Weasley: *Grows up in Quidditch obsessed household*
*Practises secretly for years*
*Makes team in her 4th year*
Fan reaction: As if

Is it just me, or wouldn’t it be easier just to acknowledge an established in fandom ship than to flesh out a completely new character just to have hetero angst and eventual man pain??

Hey guys I’m gonna remake by the end of next week guys. Keep an eye out for my new blog.

namingoflights:

Trickster has unleashed aliens (or possibly just white people, it’s unclear) on the populace of an unsuspecting Indian reservation. The only ones who can stop him are a motley group: a 95-year old WWII veteran, the best mechanic on the rez, an ex-FBI agent who had been…

What did Dumbledore do that makes him a bad person? It's been a while since I've read the series and I'm curious.

apriki:

Dumbledore is literally the scum between my toes

  • LEAVES A 1YO CHILD ON A DOORSTEP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT LIKE ‘OH NVM THEYLL FIND HIM IN THE MORNING LOL’
  • knows good and well how the dursleys are abusing and neglecting harry and just LETS THE SITUATION CONTINUE even though we see in the fifth book that he has the power to stop it (the ‘remember my last letter’). he lets harry be LOCKED UP IN A CUPBOARD and abused for ten years both because of the ””protection”’ privet dr has for harry (don’t worry, it’s only at the cost of his emotional and mental wellbeing, it’s all good) and because he WANTS harry to fall in love with the wizarding world, like voldemort did, like snape did, because it will make him easier to manipulate
  • GROOMS HARRY TO BECOME A PERSON WHO WILL WILLINGLY DIE FOR ””’THE GREATER GOOD””
  • PURPOSEFULLY WITHOLDS INFORMATION FROM HARRY AND KEEPS HIM UNINFORMED SO HE’LL DO WHAT DUMBLEDORE WANTS WHEN DUMBLEDORE WANTS HIM TO DO IT
  • tells harry in ootp that he kept the truth from him because HE ACCIDENTALLY ENDED UP CARING ABOUT HARRY. LIKE OH HERE’S THE KID I’VE BEEN PLANNING TO KILL AND HAVE LET LIVE A MISERABLE LOVELESS LIFE IN ORDER TO RIGHT THE WRONG OF THE OTHER BOY I FEEL LIKE I LET DOWN AND I ACCIDENTALLY REALISED HE’S A HUMAN BEING WELL FUCK
  • told arabella figg she couldn’t be nice to harry when he went to her house? like what the FUCK?
  • after all his lectures and ”’wisdom”’ STILL GOES AFTER THE HALLOWS HIMSELF BECAUSE HE WANTS THE POWER
  • literally told harry the only reason he didn’t make him a prefect was because he didn’t want people to think he ””plays favourites”” like he didn’t last minute give gryffindor the house cup like four fuckin years in a row because of harry
  • KNEW HE WAS GOING TO DIE AND DIDN’T TELL/PREPARE HARRY FOR THE EMOTIONAL DEVASTATION OF LOSING ANOTHER/HIS LAST FATHER FIGURE AND EVEN MADE HARRY WATCH HIM DIE
  • locked sirius up AFTER HE HAD SPENT TWELVE YEARS IN PRISON in the house where he was ABUSED AS A CHILD AND MADE TO FEEL OUTCAST AND UNLOVED and pretty much exacerbated sirius’ arrested development and feeling of worthlessness because he’s dumbledore and dumbledore knows best
  • LET SNAPE TEACH AT HOGWARTS FOR 15+ YEARS DESPITE KNOWING FULL WELL HOW HE TREATED STUDENTS JUST BECAUSE HE WANTED TO KEEP HIM CLOSE
  • HE IS IN A POSITION OF POWER - ARGUABLY THE POSITION OF POWER - AND USES IT TO MANIPULATE AND EMOTIONALLY TRAUMATISE HARRY AND BATTER HIM INTO A WEAPON TO USE AGAINST VOLDEMORT AT THE COST OF HARRY’S FUCKING CHILDHOOD

and this is NEVER ADDRESSED in the books. Dumbledore is never seen as anything but a wise and noble father figure to Harry. HARRY NAMES HIS SON AFTER THIS MAN WHO MANIPULATED HIM AND LITERALLY WALKED HIM INTO THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE. FUCK dumbledore.

#im cry #harry potter

I’m just uncomfortable around my straight friends, uncomfortable around my male gay friends, I need queer lady friends but I can’t find them here help help help

so sleeping is useless, waking up takes too much time, dying is too permanent, but vampires aren’t real. what do I do ???

wildborscht:

"I didn’t want anyone to talk to me," said Harry, who was feeling more and more nettled.
"Well, that was a bit stupid of you," said Ginny angrily, "seeing as you don’t know anyone but me who’s been possessed by You-Know-Who, and I can tell you how it feels." 
Harry remained quite still as the impact of these words hit him. Then he wheeled around.
"I forgot," he said.
"Lucky you," said Ginny coolly.

Ginny was so lost in the books and movies. She always always cuts through his melodrama and self pity and puts him in his place. She does not take shit, she had six brothers, she can handle herself.

I love militant lesbian Ginny but I love how she handles Harry.

Thank you! I’m all about pansexual Ginny myself but yeah wow this is good (also all the recent reblogs make me like ahhhhhhhhhhhhgggg people do still love Ginny)

Arguing a point with people on Facebook is like trying to scratch a block of marble with a stick of butter that’s been sitting on the counter all day.
