Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I- 2010
now I can live in peace
I think any non-potterhead just went “What in the fuck?”
there is no such thing as a non-potterhead on this website
Hello, non-potterhead here! Never seen nor read Harry Potter! Seriously, yes, never.
duality challenge: 1. strength / weakness
An Ordinary Wizarding Level, or O.W.L, is a test taken by students during their fifth year at Hogwarts. The scores a student achieves display which subjects are their strengths and weaknesses, as well as determining whether or not he or she will be allowed to continue taking that subject in future school years.
Why does no one ever talk about Andromeda Tonks I mean she was a pure-blood Slytherin in the Black family and she still chose to marry a muggle born despite being disowned and then she raised one of the most badass witches in all of existence and joined the Order of the Phoenix and when her husband, daughter and son-in-law all died in the war, she stepped up and helped raise Teddy seriously that woman was a fucking hero.
My disappointment in Movie!Hermione comes from the fact that Jo literally handed the film writers a wonderfully written, multi-faceted, and incredibly interesting character on a silver platter and they completely rebuffed her. Hermione in the books is bossy, she nit-picks, she’s protective, she’s studious to the point of being obsessive, she is spiteful, she is sneaky, and she is terrified of rejection. Hermione in the films is basically supergirl who skates by on other character’s lines and is portrayed as the sole reason Harry made it to the end (“We wouldn’t last two days without her”. Awesome, except I was under the impression it was literally a group effort, not just Hermione carrying all the weight around on her super muscly Schwarzenegger shoulders.) They took her and polished her until she was nearly unrecognizable to me. Except they didn’t need to! Hermione was already great the way she was written! Give me tattletale Hermione who gets Harry’s Firebolt confiscated because she’s worried it could be dangerous. Give me activist Hermione who starts S.P.E.W because she has a saviour complex. Give me underhanded Hermione who bewitches a piece of parchment to permanently scar anyone who snitches about the DA. Give me trembling Hermione who sits in Ron’s room and cries while explaining she modified her parents’ memories and may never see them again. Because THAT Hermione-that Hermione is important. Because she was proof you can be flawed and still be considered valuable and a good person who deserves the world. And I don’t get that from the Hermione in the films. At all.
"tea is just leaf water!" "yeah well coffee is just bean water!" wow, it’s. it’s like everything is made of things. this door is just wood rectangle. this poster is just ink paper. this lemonade is just lemon water. wow, it’s like you can combine ingredients to make things that are more enjoyable than the initial parts of the equation. sure is a magical world we live in
