No hate, but you have to admit it’s a good meme. I literally don’t even know what’s real and what’s not. It’s a Greek tragedy playing out on twitter, and honestly one of the reasons I only include the books and a Very Potter Musical as like, actual canon.
With… Other Brooms?

Wow, Rowling. Won’t even commit to making the broomstick ACTUALLY bi. Admittedly this one is not one of those I get confused about, but I did that on purpose, because I didn’t want to have to google if anything was real or fake. Doing actual research would change the energy of these articles, in which at best I half remember the canon.
Just… Water then?

This is so typical of these memes, honestly. They’re all so horny, even more so than Rowling’s real tweets, though I confess I might not be drawing the lines of what she’d actually say correctly. A lot of it seems like, more graphic than really necessary. I’d love to know more about Dumbledore’s life and relationships, but I do NOT need to know the kind of details I’m getting.

This I’ve never gotten. Like yes, there could obviously have been more and better representation. But maybe not in the 90s. I’m not trying to be culturally relativistic here, but I’m just saying, if she had made Dumbledore explicitly gay in 1997, or honestly even 2007, people would have said she was trying to indoctrinate children. She could just have said what’s probably true, that she would have liked to have more diversity than she really could, but of course she didn’t do that.
I Mean, I Guess

We could talk all day about the gay coding around this. He was a werewolf so he had to HIDE. Sirius x Lupin shippers know this. I’m old, I don’t know the ship name. I’m pretty sure I’m the only person who thought they might be in love by Sirius’ death in ’03. Something about it was definitely gay. But apparently it was just a tree.
Now About Luna, I’ll Buy It

I know I’m beating a dead horse, but like… was it? She certainly wasn’t CAST a quarter Chinese, though casting is a whole other can of worms. And can’t magic just kinda happen without a wand if you’re as badass as Hermione? Wouldn’t that be like. Awkward? I like to think Draco maybe wasn’t even his son. He and Narcissa look exactly alike, it’s not like he’d know.
