I wish there were more people like luna
This is something that I never liked about the books, but it’s also so true to real life, which is what makes it so painful. We eventually grow up and realize not all the things our parents told us were true. It’s all part of an elaborate fairytale to protect us; but that was what was so wonderful about Luna. Her dad actually believed in what he was saying, so it gave us hope. Maybe Luna was right; maybe her peers, the ones shedding doubt, were the wrong ones.
But no. In the end, we all have to grow up.
This may surprise people but it is the truth, in many many ways Hufflepuff is my favourite house. There comes a point in the final book where each house has the choice whether or not to rise to a certain challenge, the Slytherins for reasons understandable decide they’d rather not play. The Ravenclaws - some do, some decide they won’t. The Hufflepuffs, virtually to a person, decide to stay. As too do the Gryffindors. Now the Gryffindors comprise a lot of fool-hardy and show-offy people, that’s just the way it is - I’m a Gryffindor I’m allowed to say that. You know there’s bravery and there’s also show-boating, sometimes the two go together. The Hufflepuffs stayed for a different reason - they weren’t trying to show off, they weren’t being reckless, that’s the essence of Hufflepuff house.
Now my eldest child, my daughter Jessica said something very profound to me not very many days ago, she said to me - and she by the way was not sorted into Hufflepuff house - she said to me, “I think we should all want to be Hufflepuffs.” I can only say to you that I would not be at all disappointed to be sorted into Hufflepuff house so I’m a little upset anyone does feel that way."

Can you imagine Fred’s face when he’s in heaven and realizes that Prongs is Harry’s dad?
“THE LITTLE SHIT NEVER TOLD ME THIS.”
Finally a post about Fred’s death that made me genuinely smile^^
Also, Lupin. His goddamn teacher was Mooney the whole time. Oh, and Wormtail was the family rat. So yeah, Harry’s going to get such an earful after he actually dies.
A whole world of ear related humor and you go with earful?
- 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 TAG OMG.
my favourite part from book 3 has to be when hermionie is done with divination
its just so funny omg professor trelawney is like HERMIONIE YOURE REALLY SHITTY AT THIS and hermionie just stares at her for a moment before getting up and basically shouting “IM DONE IM 100% DONE IM GONE IM LEAVING” and she kicks open the door and just leaves the classroom and doesnt return ever again
hermione granger: taking none of your shit since 1997.
This might just be my favorite thing on tumblr…
A Dreamworks animator shows what would happen in Harry Potter’s world if the spells didn’t go as planned.
Requested Hulk as Harry Potter
By House/Combined House:
I keep getting a lot of requests for these in my asks, so I’m just reblogging this again so you know all of the analysis is done. No requests, they’re all done. If you think you can’t find one, it’s on the next page. If you send me requests that are anonymous they’ll just be deleted.

WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME.
The degree to which I consider my Hogwarts house an important part of my identity is probably a tad unhealthy
the thing that really worked about harry, hermione, and ron was that they were all the uncomfortable third friend
