This is my tumblr. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
(Just a heads up for anyone who I follow: I have a habit of going through every page of someone's tumblr if I start following them, looking for things that amuse/interest me. I'm starting to realize that this might seem a bit creepy, so I apologize in advance.)

People who hate Harry Potter missed the a giant part of the story. Despite being abused by his aunt, uncle and cousin his whole life Harry was kind, compassionate, loyal, protective and honest. He defended those who needed it and stood up to those who deserved it. He didn’t become bitter or hateful. And he spent his life trying to protect others. You can’t hate him because people chose to stand by him even if it meant they’d die. He didn’t want that, he wanted everyone to live even if it meant he couldn’t anymore.

It’s because he suffered PTSD in book 5 and was mistaken for a whinny angsty teen.

James Potter is an extremely fascinating character and if you simply write him off as an arrogant bully you’re doing him a great injustice and here’s why:

Albus Severus's first trip to the headmistress's office

McGonagall: Albus Severus, I am very very disappointed in you

Dumbledore: Minerva, my dear, I apologize but I must ask, what did I do?

Snape: I hope you do realize headmistress that reprimanding two portraits will get your absolutely…. nowhere.

McGonagall: Albus! Severus! I didn’t mean-

Albus Severus: Yes headmistress?

McGonagall: No, not you Albus!

Dumbledore: Not me, my dear?

McGonagall: Oh for Merlin’s sake!

when people think peter pettigrew was ‘hur hur I’m stupid hur hur’

  • also he accidentally bumped into bertha jorkins in albania and convinced her to take a fucking walk with him in the woods even though he was supposed to have been MURDERED MORE THAN A DECADE PREVIOUSLY
  • he had the foresight to take voldemort’s wand from the potters’ house and keep it when almost every other death eater assumed voldemort was gone for good
  • he covered up ALL THE LOOSE ENDS by framing sirius, the ONE person who could have proven him guilty
  • HE CUT OFF HIS OWN FUCKING FINGER TO FAKE HIS DEATH

it does beg the question though…pete really seems to be fundamentally slytherin. self-preservation was definitely the driving factor behind everything he did. …i’m starting to think peter chose gryffindor intentionally.

Everyone prepared for Ginny Weasley meta? CUZ HERE I GO

ladyloveandjustice:

Okay so I was remembering all the early fandom nonsense criticizing Ginny for breaking up with boys for what they saw as silly reasons (they were not, and anyone has the right to end a relationship if it’s not working for them) and it occurred to me how Ginny refuses to put up with anyone giving her shit or not respecting her wishes or condescending to her can be directly traced back to her experiences with Tom Riddle.

He was, in many ways, Ginny’s first relationship. He looked down on her- there is no doubt about that since he openly mocked her to Harry. He was the only one in control in the relationship and he used that control to abuse, manipulate and possess her. Ginny was so lonely and felt so hopeless that she completely gave this much older guy she didn’t even know anything about everything he needed to exploit and control her. There were no boundaries in this relationship because Ginny was too young to feel the need for them. She gave and he took. She was treated in a way she did not in the least bit deserve. It was the very definition of an abusive relationship. 

So is it really a surprise that after this horrific experience, Ginny developed very clear boundaries? That the instant a guy doesn’t respect her wishes, or treats her in a way she doesn’t deserve, she shuts him down completely or ends that relationship? That is more than just Ginny being strong willed (which is great), it’s also self-preservation developed from her desire not to end up in an abusive relationship again.

Look at Ginny’s three relationships:

Sometimes I randomly remember that Harry Potter named his child partially after Severus Snape

And I get really mad that he thought it was okay to overlook the constant bullying of two of his good friends simply because Snape was a double agent and gave him the answer on what he needed to do in the end

But then I imagine him and Ginny announcing they’re naming their second son “Albus Severus” and Neville and Hermione are like “Are you fucking kidding me right now?” and I feel better that they’d call him out on his nonsense

suzie-guru:

Imagine Harry and Ginny a few months into their marriage and they’re so happy and in love and then one day they go shopping for food and household items and Harry just casually grabs certain items before Ginny hisses at him to "Check the prices, Harry, God! That bed set is far too expensive, we’re not going to have anything left to get the food with!" And Harry starts to laugh and say "We don’t have to worry about -" and then he stops and he and Ginny look at each other. And Harry realizes that she’s grown up having to measure out all her money and decide what she can and cannot have for a certain week or month or year. And Ginny realizes that she is actually no longer obligated to worry about money ever again. 

Imagine Harry and Ginny eating dinner together and Ginny’s telling him about certain meals her mum made and teasing him about how he wolfs everything down and "Honestly Harry, you’re worse than Ron!" and Harry retorts laughingly "well old habits die hard, I had to fight Dudley for meals all the time, you at least knew you were going to eat every day!" And Ginny’s grin starts to fade and she asks "You…you didn’t get to eat everyday?" And Harry realizes what he said and he changes the subject quickly and Ginny looks at the plates in front of him and resists the urge to pile on some more potatoes. And the next day Vernon Dursley’s car is egged. 

Imagine Harry and Ginny both suffering from night terrors and PTSD and agreeing that maybe going to that therapist Hermione recommended isn’t such a bad idea, and that’s how Thursday night became Therapy Night when they go out to dinner or to the pub after each session and agree that  they need to talk to some Healers about introducing these sessions since therapy is still widely seen as muggle nonsense in the wizarding world.

And Ginny murmurs over her fire whiskey that sometimes she can still hear Tom Riddle murmuring in her ear, and Harry whispers that he dreams about running after his mother and father and Sirius and Remus as they disappear behind the Veil in the Department of Mysteries and he doesn’t know if he wakes from terror or regret about not making it through. And they go back home and hold each other closer that night and both wake up with raging hangovers.

friendly reminder that Harry Potter

  1. at eleven, was described by his teachers as ‘bright’
  2. at the same age, according to the Sorting Hat: “Not a bad mind, either. There’s talent, oh my goodness, yes” and “You could be great, you know, it’s all here in your head”
  3. mastered the challenging Patronus Charm at thirteen and proceeded to teach it at fifteen
  4. resisted the Imperius Curse at fourteen and soon learned to throw it off completely, even when cast by the incredibly powerful Voldemort
  5. also at fourteen, learned to cast a powerful Accio Charm
  6. at fifteen, was training other students
  7. at the same age, under extreme stress, tested as ‘exceeds expectations’ or ‘outstanding’ in every subject that required actual magic (including the dreaded Potions)
  8. same age, cast a briefly effective Cruciatus Curse
  9. at sixteen, became a star Potions student simply by following superior instructions
  10. at seventeen, successfully cast the Imperius Curse on his first try, and used it repeatedly
  11. at the same age, cast a successful Cruciatus Curse

friendly reminder that if harry would have been a girl snape would have treated her like petyr baelish treats sansa stark ✿◕‿◕✿

I don’t buy it.
Like, I’m not gonna deny snape was an awful fucking person, but I don’t really see much sexual about his friendship with Lilly. I mean, she was his only friend and that’s why losing her hit him so hard. I don’t even know that his love for her was romantic.

Snape’s an asshole, but let’s not assume that he would’ve been a fucking pedophile.

potter, please.
you’re twelve. no one cares about a twelve-year-old enough to be archenemies with them except maybe voldemort but then again he’s also the man who agreed to live on the back of other man’s head.
weird notion of “most powerful wizardry”, if you ask me.
and really, potter, are you actually that dense
can’t you see it written all across malfoy’s unhumanly large forehead that he just wants to be bffs with you
are you sure you’ve never banged your head on the ceiling of that stupid cupboard because i’m thinking brain damage here, sir

#omg i love that the over-inflated self importance applies to both of them like draco would TOTALLY consider himself potter’s archnemesis because it’s better than being his nobody meanwhile tom riddle is crying his deformed spirit baby self to sleep at night and anytime in between because what is he chopped liver? so sad how this changes after GOF like as soon as old voldermortz has a body again harry’s like SORRY MALFOY BIGGER PROBLEMS YOU UNDERSTAND and draco is like I MOST CERTAINLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND ugh the worst kind of transgression I THOUGHT THIS ARCHRIVALRY MEANT SOMETHING TO YOU POTTER and sirius dies and voldy truly becomes the sole recipient of harry’s rage I SAID I WAS BUSY MALFOY!!!!!! but malfoy’s dedicated antagonism is still this lovely comforting white noise throughout it all until it ISN’T and despite everything else he has to worry about harry’s like YOU GUYS I THINK MALFOY IS UP TO SOMETHING…. SOMETHING EVIL because obviously anything that distracts draco from their archrivalry is evil (see: voldemort in harry’s case) except draco doesn’t have time for HIM anymore and oh ho ho the tables turn and harry stays up late watching draco on the marauder’s map and thinking about his hair and basically voldemort is just the worst kind of cockblock
