did she get a haircut

does it make anyone else uncomfortable that they changed her entire race because she went out with Ron in their sixth year
isn’t that what happened???
they changed a character’s entire race because she as a character became important and relevant for a short amount of time

Wow.

Umm, no. They did not change her entire race simply because she dated Ron. Actually think about it. Up until the sixth book, she was a background character that was only ever mentioned in passing, so she wasn’t given a physical description. Then in the sixth book, Lavender was finally described, as having ‘pale skin and dirty blonde hair’. Well, the first few Harry Potter movies came out before the Half-Blood Prince book did, so the casting directors did what they wanted with the character. 
Another thing, the Lavender Brown from the first few movies only appeared in the first few movies. Lavender didn’t even appear in the 4th and 5th movies, because again, she was a background character, and wasn’t vital to the story. The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books, and it didn’t fit what the directors had, so they had to recast her. It was not because she dated Ron.

"actually think about it" lmao. okay, i saw this and doubted extremely because i couldn’t remember any such description of Lavender. So i checked.
164, 210, 213, 214, 273, 281, 282, 284, 285, 289, 290, 292, 292, 293, 309, 332, 358, 370, 383, 384, 398, 421, 422, 439, 422, 447, 480, 481, 482, 501
the above is a list of EVERY SINGLE PAGE of hbp in which Lavender Brown appears. I just went through the entire book, and there was NOT A SINGLE PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION OF LAVENDER. Not hair, not eyes, not skin. Nothing.
hmm. interesting. it’s almost as if you pulled that description directly out of your ass.
Secondly, that doesn’t even matter. They went ahead and cast much too old actors for all the Marauders, completely disregarded the bit about Harry and Lily’s eyes. They don’t really care as much as all that about being true to the books. 
Just as a matter of interest, this is from HP Wiki:

Jennifer Smith portrayed Lavender Brown in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban[1], she replaced Lavender’s former actress Kathleen Cauley who played her in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Though Smith had a non-speaking role she appeared frequently in the film.
Smith was not asked to return for either of the following two films and in the sixth film, white-British actress Jessie Cave was recast as Lavender for Half-Blood Prince and has been cast again for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.[2] Jessie Cave became the third actress and the first actress of a different racial-colour to play Lavender.
For several years there was confusion over who Jennifer Smith was as another black-British actress, Kandice Morris, played a notable Gryffindor female and for a long period it was believe she was Lavender. However it later was discovered she was a character made for the films called Kellah, much like the character Bem.

soooooooooo yeah can u not make up stuff in order to defend the racist policies of the film industry, you are extremely shitty and can suck a dick bye

Imagine James Potter getting wasted and making a bet with Sirius that he can totally transform into his Animagus shape no biggie - and it goes fine but then he’s too drunk to change back and Muggles get confronted with this really drunk deer roaming the streets pursued by a man who can’t stop laughing

these are the best

danyytargaryen:

harry and ginny having triplet boys and naming them james, sirius, and remus respectively

Friendly reminder that this creepy moment existed. 


#she was laughing at her husband and son#people who she loved dearly enough to give up her life#and snape took that and cut them out of it so he could pretend she was laughing for him#her love in the letter was for sirius who was best man at her wedding and her good friend who fought at her side in the order#and snape took that so he could pretend her love was for him#snape is fucking trash and this is not romantic at all






this this this this this omg this is so disgusting this guy is a creep who feels entitled to Lily’s love even though he’s done nothing to deserve it



It makes my skin crawl how people will romanticize this.

So it’s 3AM and It’s just occurred to me that the most telling scene in the entire Harry Potter franchise is the scene following the announcement of the participants of the Triwizard tournament.

When Harry’s name is pulled out of the cup, literally one of the first things he is asked is “did you ask an older boy to put your name in the cup for you?" or something to that effect, insinuating that, that was something nobody prepared for and that it was something that totally would have worked if anyone had been smart enough to figure it out.

However, in an earlier scene a student is turned into a hundred year old man when they try to artificially age themselves with a potion and put their name into the cup. Meaning someone trying to dangerously age themselves with potion they aren’t familiar with was something the teachers genuinely considered to be more likely than someone asking for fucking help from another student.

In other words, the wizards in Harry Potter’s world are so reliant on magic that it doesn’t occur to anyone save for people like Harry that asking for help is even an option in a given situation. This explains why wizards are so fucking ass-backwards at everything, they’re so confident that their magic is capable of doing everything for them that it has never occurred to fucking anyone that perhaps asking for help from the muggle world might be of some use.

Think about it, the wizarding world hasn’t changed in hundreds of years while in that same space of time the muggle world has figured out fucking space travel. I know it’s a cliché to say to say someone could have fucking shot Voldemort, but seriously, somebody totally fucking could have, he killed like 50 people, he was effectively a terrorist, if anyone in the wizarding world bothered to ask for help from the muggles instead of just telling them there was an invisible asshole flying around shooting death curses at everyone, they may have been able to help. 

Pretty much the only reason Voldermort thinks he’s better than muggles is because he’s able to kill them with impunity using magic, something he’s only able to do so easily because muggles don’t understand what magic is. Voldemort is basically like a fucking disease, he’s an invisible, lurking entity preying on mankind from the shadows like a cowardly piece of shit. You know what else did that? Smallpox and we stomped that to death the second we understood it. That’s the difference between muggles and wizards, when muggles don’t understand something, they figure it out.

And here’s the kicker, the only reason muggles don’t understand magic at all is because the wizarding world deliberately withholds information about it. However, even if the wizarding world kept doing that, it’d only be a matter of time until a muggle figured out what magic was and how to stop or harness it because that’s what humanity does, it pushes past what we think is impossible to see what’s on the other side. We didn’t understand the sun as a species originally and now we use it to power satellites and smartphones.

The wizarding world isn’t a realm of infinite possibilities, it’s a universe of strict limitations where boundaries are never questioned. The muggle world is where the real magic happens. That’s why during the course of the Harry Potter books, which are set between 1991 and 1998, the muggle world (our world) discovered dark matter, cloned a sheep and invented fucking MP3s while the wizarding world were literally paying some dipshit to figure out what the purpose of a rubber duck was.

Wow, I really shouldn’t think about this stuff when it’s like 3AM, it gets kind of dark.

great stuff :D

Makes me want to find the post about the science wizards and the muggleborn students at Hogwarts again

bralpha:

okay but like could you imagine all the muggle born students coming back to hogwarts after summer break and catching up on what movies they saw, what they thought of season finales, what concerts they went to and off to the side the wizard raised kids are staring at them in confusion and suddenly one of them just whispers

"what the fuck is a nickelback"

What if Hufflepuff is actually the stoner house at Hogwarts

I mean, 

  • Hufflepuff. HUFF le PUFF.
  • They’re mostly considered nice and peaceful.
  • They live right by the kitchen.
  • Their head of house teaches herbology.
  • “Badger” is exactly the kind of animal a stoner would come up with.
  • Slytherins obviously do cocaine.

#THIS IS A LEGITIMATE THEORY #YOU KNOW CEDRIC DIGGORY WAS HIGH MOST OF THE TIME #I MEAN YOU HAD TO HAVE BEEN HIGH TO THINK OPENING THE EGG IN A BATH WAS A LEGIT IDEA

THIS TAG OMG.
