i always thought that dementors didn’t really make 100% sense
because they feed on your happiness but you’re more susceptible to them if you’ve had a lot of hardship+they make you relive your worst memories?
and then happiness is what powers the patronus and drives them away (but don’t they feed on happiness??? ?)
that just doesn’t make sense to me
what i always thought would be way cooler and much more villainous is if when dementors fed off your happiness, they made you relive your happiest memories (so then there was a sort of mirror of erised effect where you get drawn into it)
those memories were soured because the dementors would suck all of the happiness out of them so that you could no longer find joy in the thing that made you happy
u feel me
I never thought of it that way before, but yeah, that makes a lot more sense!

Something I’ve never noticed before:
Snape not only deflects McGonagall’s attack but uses it to take down Alecto and Amycus in a single armwave behind his visual field. Like they both had their wands out too but BOY they did not see that coming. Snape knew that he needed to get rid of them before being driven out of the castle so that they wouldn’t harm any of the students GOD what a badass motherfucker
friendly reminder that when oliver wood addressed the gryffindor quidditch team as ‘men’, angelina johnson called him out on his sexist and misogynistic bullshit by reminding him there were women on the team too, and he listened to her without question ✿◕‿◕✿
so this new gen Hogwarts thing has been eating away at my mind and i did a thing
she’s a ravenclaw and she’s into historical revisionism and writes lengthy and intelligent articles for the zine. she’s also into mixing ‘alternative potions’, and plays as a chaser for the ravenclaw quidditch team.
she hates how history of magic is taught at Hogwarts though, its all books written by crusty old white pureblood dudes (“there isn’t a single non-human author in the syllabus, don’t tell me that doesn’t say something.”).
→ But your sacrifice won’t be forgotten
The Trio, and the scars they got along the way.
Man, every time I finish the books I go through a period of mourning, and this time I am self medicating with fanart.
I borrowed Hermione’s scar from the movies, I actually found that part powerful, in a awful way.
“The boy that made up my childhood is the same boy that didn’t have one.”

BECAUSE IT’S NOT
Harry Potter reading Harry Potter on the set of Harry Potter during shooting of Harry Potter.
This is why the books are better than the films…
I remember reading this bit and spitting juice everywhere.
