I keep finding foreign editions of Harry Potter books in second hand shops. I literally was going to just walk past a shelf but my eyes were immediately drawn to the spine of the one to the left. Harry Potter radar much? Mum laughed at me.

it’s easy to forget just how awful the dursleys were to harry but it’s like u read the beginning where’s he still at privet drive and you read just how miserable he is and how excited and apprehensive he is just at the notion of being able to leave it’s like damn

and then no one takes this into account whenever they do harry meta and call him frustrating and stupid bc he never tries to ask adults for help and he never asks questions but it’s like UM he has no reason to trust any of the authority figures in his life since the only authority figures he has known have given him no reason to do so. and there’s also the fact they have driven into his head not to ask questions unless he wants to be punished or subjected to vernon’s anger like???

imagine being fourteen and having the mass-murderer who killed your parents telling you that he’s going to kill you

and then escaping with the corpse of a fellow student AND THEN HAVING NO-ONE BELIEVE YOU

AND GOING BACK TO LIVE IN A LOVELESS HOUSEHOLD FOR SIX WEEKS WITH NO INFORMATION FROM YOUR WORLD, THINKING THAT THAT MASS-MURDERER MIGHT BE STANDING ON YOUR DOORSTEP AT ANY MOMENT

Harry has every right to be angsty in ootp I’D LIKE TO SEE YOU HANDLE IT

there are certain characters/families in the Harry Potter canon that are described as having fair or pale skin, the Potter line isn’t one of them. Harry and James both have canonically jet-black untidy hair but no canon ethnicity. Harry has “great skin”.

The very first time I saw you Harry, I recognised you immediately. Not by your scar, by your eyes. They’re your mother Lily’s. Oh yes, I knew her. Your mother was there for me at a time when no one else was. Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman. She had a way of seeing the beauty in others, even, and perhaps most especially, when that person couldn’t see it in themselves. Your father, James, however, had a certain, shall we say, talent for trouble. A talent, rumour has it, he passed onto you. You’re more like them than you know, Harry. In time you’ll come to see just how much.

Harry then did something that was both very brave and very stupid.

a scene that really bothers me in HBP is when Ginny feeds Harry that pie thing and she is like “don’t you trust me?” and then just feeds it to him all nicely 

because I honestly believe that book!Ginny would have said “don’t you trust me?” and then she would proceed to shove the pie in his face and then say “your mistake!” and just like run away laughing her head off and Harry would just be sitting there with pie stuck to his face and a small grin thinking ‘wow this girl is perfect’
