The Very Best Very Potter Musical Memes

What is there to say about A Very Potter Musical? It’s one of the greatest works of all time. If you’ve seen it, you’ll understand, and if not, you should probably just go watch it right now. Not even to enjoy these memes better, just because everyone deserves to experience it. Anyone who likes Harry Potter, though, can appreciate the show’s genius, whether they’ve seen it or not.

Watching it the First Time

This really captures the humor of the whole thing. It’s already there in the source material. It’s very close to the surface. And yeah, the Harry Potter books are wonderfully funny when they want to be, but there’s SO MUCH there that can be brought out. And boy does Very Potter Musical find all of it. They spent a full quarter of their budget on a giant chocolate bar. Go watch it.

 

Cannon?

When I tell you that Malfoy is the best part of this play, I want you to understand how seriously I mean this. Voldemort tap dances. The sheer physical comedy, I simply cannot describe the genius. Half of Malfoy’s time on stage is spent rolling around. It’s genuinely dazzling. And I’m also pretty sure this is just cannon. Malfoy throws around his father a lot, but do we think his father actually cares?

 

Wisdom

Listen. Listen. It may seem like that’s a bad name for a school. But like. Hogwarts. When was the last time we thought about that? Certainly not this decade. Maybe not this millennium. Also, this is another Malfoy thing, and you know how I feel about Malfoy. I’ll try and stop. But seriously, a wizard school on Mars? That’s basically the best place I can think of. Why did they throw sci-fi in there? Because they’re geniuses.

 

Seems Fair

This may be another Malfoy thing a little! Let’s talk about Snape. He throws his cape around, he takes points from Griffindor, and I think that’s valid as it gets. And look at that wig. Honestly I could just go on forever. If you think Snape sounds good, just wait until you see Dumbledore. He’s the absolute most, and I’m amazed all the memes weren’t about him.

 

Zefron

As someone who’s never had an opinion on Zach Effron in my life, boy do I have opinions about the Zefron poster in a Very Potter Musical. It’s so, so funny. Dumbledore would rather be defeated by Voldemort than destroy it. And Voldemort turned a poster of Zach Effron into a horcrux. They don’t explain this! Zefron poster horcrux. Of course. Makes instant sense.

5 Philosopher’s Stone Memes

I know I know, half of you are scandalized, but today, on the eighteenth anniversary of the film release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, how am I supposed to bring sorcery into it? Apparently american children in 1997 thought philosophy was for nerds. You know what’s for nerds? Harry Potter. There are a lot of ways to reminisce about the only movie where they actually wear robes, but we’re internet people second, here at Bookstr. I think you know where this is going.

Flawless Logic

Alright, I was the same age as Harry when I first read this book, and not much older when I saw the movie, but what was Dumbledore’s thinking here? I admit I don’t remember all the details, but you basically can’t get into Gringotts, and you certainly can’t get out. And that’s under normal circumstances! They couldn’t throw another dragon or two in front of the thing? And let me ask you this: did they ever try dragons against Voldemort in the first place? I don’t care how much of an evil badass you are or whatever, what are you really going to do with ten tonnes of angry fire lizard in front of you? I know they threw dragons at children in the fourth book, but without warning? Please. I just want to know they tried it. And I know Hogwarts is supposed to be pretty safe, but even without all the later counter-evidence, I’d wonder. 

 

Actually, What Did He Do?

This is a dazzling take, obviously, and there’s a lot to unpack, but really it just made me wonder what Malfoy’s dad like… does. Sure, he’s a Death Eater, but not every second, and how much Death Eater work is there to do while Voldemort’s presumed dead? I know he’s very busy being privileged and racist and hearing about things Potter does, but what does he do the rest of the time? Just sit around the house being angry about things and making house elves miserable? For real, it’s never mentioned that he works at the ministry or anything. We really don’t know anything about how the Malfoys got so powerful, or about what they do now. It never bothered me before, but now it’s driving me crazy. I also absolutely love the suggestion that he invented toaster strudel. Invented it! It’s so random and so muggle centric. Priceless. 

 

More Great Ideas!

Alright, so you’re not allowed to go into the forest, because it’s STUPID dangerous, and you’d definitely die. Also, it’s even more dangerous than usual because someone’s going around killing and eating unicorns. Never go there! Wait, out after dark, maybe risking their lives trying to relocate an illegal dragon for the groundskeeper? Well, why don’t you do something even more dangerous for that very same groundskeeper? It’s like, oh, you’re smoking? How about some meth? That’ll teach you. I mean, I guess they learn something, but it’s not their lesson, I think the rest of the story can attest. And the second they’re in the forest, Hagrid is like, you know what? Let’s split the party. Best witch with me! Here’s my dog, try not to die. And then, not only are they in danger, but it’s literal Voldemort, running around in the woods right by the school. Who’s keeping track of school safety around here? 

 

We Don’t Judge. Or Use Judgement.

Look, I know the twins are chill as it gets, but they really should have noticed this. Don’t judge, that’s great! But bring it up, please? Did they see it and go “aww, Ron has a friend” like, shouldn’t they know there’s noone named Peter in his year? They’re only a year or so above, and there are like five boys in his class, how would they not realise? Especially when this guy goes everywhere with Ron? I know what you’re going to say. Why would they ever actively check where Ron is? Well, if they want to sneak out of the tower, wouldn’t they need to know everyone else was asleep? And why weren’t they even a little worried any of the times Ron was just AWOL in the middle of the night? I know they support making poor discipline related choices, but he’s a baby, aren’t they worried? Have they ever walked right past him when he’s in the invisibility cloak? What did they think then, I beg of you?

These nerds had their moments. We all like to talk about Harry, as we should. “No need to call me sir, Professor” was the line of a generation, and I like him telling Snape that Ron’s misspelled name is a nickname. They say a lot of stuff to Snape. But I don’t think Hermione gets enough credit. She has fewer moments, sure, but they’re absolutely metal. Remember when she bitch slapped Malfoy, muggle style? Your fave could never. And what’s Malfoy going to do, tell his father? Hi dad, today I was slapped at wizard school. It would never occur to someone who’s always had magic right there. I’m honestly just sad she never slapped him again. Oh, sure, she could outspell him too, she’s a much better caster, but there’s just such a big energy about hitting that dude in the face. Classic.

Harry & Draco, sitting in a tree...?

Tom Felton Calls Harry Potter’s Crush on Draco “Clearly a Fact”

Chances are, if you’ve read the Harry Potter series, you’ve read Harry Potter fan-fiction. And chances are, if you’ve READ Harry Potter fan-fiction, you’ve at least tried your hand at writing some. (In my past life as a teenage employee of a moving company, I once stumbled upon a handwritten HP fic hidden in a child’s bedroom.) Okay, so maybe writing fan-fiction isn’t as easy as a flick of the wrist and a wave of the wand—but even if you’ve never put quill to paper, you’ve almost certainly IMAGINED an alternate ending or bonus scenes to the series.

Draco Malfoy is one of the most prominent characters throughout Harry Potter fan-fiction, and I’m going down into the fandom trenches to prove this with statistics. A search for “Draco Malfoy” on one popular fan-fiction website yields 62,072 results. Though Hermione is a more central character in the source material, querying Hermione’s name yields only 54,259. Why the discrepancy? It’s not a matter of sexism: try “Ron Weasley” and you’ll find a mere 38,931. (“Harry Potter” is a bunk search term in this case since every story in the fandom would be grouped under that name, regardless of whether Harry himself plays a role.)

One of the reasons for Draco’s popularity is that, clearly, villains and antagonists are conceptually sexy—a reality that doesn’t need any statistical backing. But perhaps the more significant reason is that while Draco himself features heavily in the series, Draco’s internal monologue is largely absent. We can guess at his thoughts and feelings, but Rowling leaves a great deal of ambiguity in regards to Draco’s personal life. Often, fan-fiction seeks to close gaps in a canonical narrative, telling the stories we didn’t get to read.

Though we discover Draco is married to Astoria Greengrass in the epilogue, it’s relatively unsatisfying to see such an impactful character pair off with one to whom we have no emotional connection. We as readers see Draco’s life primarily through the lens of his interactions with the protagonists; as such, it’s more satisfying to imagine that they are central to his private thoughts and feelings. Appropriately (or, inappropriately, as the Google image results may be), Draco & Harry and Draco & Hermione are some of the most popular fan-fiction pairings.

 

 

Tom Felton himself is all aboard this ship. In an interview with AOL, Harry Potter co-stars Felton (Draco Malfoy), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), and Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) debated whether or not Draco and Harry could have been, so to speak, ‘more than just enemies.’

“Harry Potter was constantly crushing on Draco,” Felton asserted. “He just couldn’t hide it.”

Lynch dismissed the idea of a Draco & Harry pairing, but, as Draco’s actor, Felton has more expertise on the subject. Apparently, he’s also seen for himself how the pair would get along… in the form of NSFW fan-art. “I’ve seen some pictures,” Felton clarified, “some alarming ones.” Of course, nobody really wants to see pornography of themselves and their coworker, so Felton can be Team Drarry and not Team-Fake-Nudes-of-Himself.

But it’s not that Felton is just supportive of the fans’ imaginations. When it came time to talk about another popular pairing, Felton blew the ship right out of the water. “I think that’s fan-fic,” he said when asked about Draco & Hermione as a couple. He added: “In fact, I feel like I’ve seen some fan-fics along that line. What is it with Draco and matching him up with various Gryffindors?”

Even though there’s all subtext and no text when it comes to Harry & Draco’s relationship, worry not! One day, J.K. Rowling will declare that the couple had an ‘intense sexual relationship‘ all along like Dumbledore & Grindelwald.

The Kind-Hearted Tom Felton Reveals Weird ‘Harry Potter’ Fan Experiences

Witty, snotty, and a bit condescending, Draco Malfoy is a pure-blooded wizard who makes it his business to make Harry Potter and his friends’ world miserable. However, the actor who brought this platinum blonde and Slytherin prefect to life, Tom Felton, is actually a pretty sweet and awesome guy. It’s no secret that many Harry Potter fans loved Tom Felton’s portrayal of Draco Malfoy; he was a guy you love to hate, but hate to love. However, sometimes fans get a bit out of hand with their dedication and love (or hate) for the characters.

 

Tom Felton revealed during an interview with Yahoo! Movies that a strange occurrence happened when he was playing a young Draco Malfoy. A man who had legally changed his name to Lucius Malfoy (the fictional father of Draco Malfoy) reached out and offered to adopt him and make Tom change his name legally to Draco. Um, okay. Creepy. In the interview, Tom Felton stated:

 

 

One man wanted to adopt me. He had changed his name legally to Lucius Malfoy and wanted me to change my name to Draco Malfoy and to legally adopt me. I declined!

And don’t get him started on his fans from America. Some fans have a hard time differentiating between the character and the actual actor. We confuse the two then make the actor seem like they reflect their character. Tom Felton actually isn’t too bad; he’s a pretty chill person. However, it didn’t stop people from sending him angry letters, he said:

 

 

I’ve got some angry Americans tell me ‘Leave Harry Potter alone man! What did he ever do to you?’ but are deadly serious in how they deliver it… They seem to think I had some kind of influence on Rowling’s writing!

 

 

 

Via GIPHY

 

 

He can’t help with J.K Rowling wrote! He’s just depicting a character; it’s not his fault his character just happens to have a few flaws. However, like I said before, Tom Felton is a great person. When him and Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry Potter, come together, they have beautiful chemistry and though both have hung up their wands, it doesn’t mean they haven’t kept in touch. Recently, Tom Felton dropped by to watch Daniel Radcliffe perform on Broadway. He also visited Matthew Lewis, who portrayed Neville Longbottom.

I guess that’s the ups and downs of being a Harry Potter actor. There’s always that one fan that takes it too far with angry letters and some unpleasant encounters. However, there are also the pleasant reunions between the now-older cast members. This happens when the magic blooms once again and a little bit of wizardry and magic spark back to life. We love you Tom Felton; you’re our favorite Slytherin and don’t ever change!

Matthew Lewis and Tom Felton Had a Little Harry Potter Reunion with Total Hogwarts Vibes

This is definitely the cutest spell I’ve ever seen cast! 

 

 

According to Eonline, Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) and Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis), the two salient figures representing the Hogwarts houses Slytherin and Gryffindor, hung out in L.A. with serious Harry Potter vibes!

 

 

 

See how close he was to converting…. @mattdavelewis #gryffindork

Tom Felton(@t22felton)分享的貼文 於 張貼

 

 

In this picture, we can see Felton is acting as if he’s threatening Lewis, with one hand over his prey and the other holding a dark green bag imprinted with a Slytherin mark. Lewis, however, does not look like an ordinary prey-he is PROUD! With Felton’s caption, “See how close he was to converting” and the hashtag “gryffindork,” OWWWWW, we’ve decoded this situation-Draco Malfoy, as if his villain fuel continues, is hijacking our little cute Neville!

 

 

What would Neville say to this? 

 

 

 

Take your Slytherin paws off me, you damn dirty ape! @t22felton

Matthew Lewis(@mattdavelewis)分享的貼文 於 張貼

 

 

Well, our tiny Neville is not tiny anymore! He was best known for his brilliantly bright and brave behavior when confronting Voldemort’s snake in Deathly Hallows, and in his Instagram post, Lewis jokingly shouts out, “Take your Slytherin paws off me, you damn dirty ape!” The ape metaphor implies to Felton’s acting in Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011).

 

 

Well, this Hogwarts house humor is not the first of its kind. Eonline also recalled that in 2015 when Felton enrolled on Pottermore, he tweeted:

 

 

 

 

In J. K. Rolling’s original setting, Malfoy is kind of the leader of Slytherin squad and he’s proud of that, but apparently, Tom Felton was sorted into his enemy house!

 

 

Responding to that, Rolling tweeted:

 

 

 

It’s fun, isn’t it? #Gryffindork or #Slytherinforlife, which one Rictusempra’s you?
