Harry Potter AU where someone sees Harry in his cousin’s over-sized clothing with his underfed body and hears him casually mention the cupboard in which he sleeps and calls the fucking police

Dementors and House-elves, merpeople and Chinese Fireball Dragons—these are just a few of the magical creatures and frightening monsters populating J. K. Rowling’s wizarding world. Harry Potter: The Creature Vault is a fascinating look at how this menagerie was brought to life for the blockbuster Harry Potter film series. Detailed profiles of each creature include rare concept illustrations, behind-the-scenes photography, and filmmaking secrets from the Warner Bros. archive. A removable poster picturing each of the creatures and an interactive Eeylops Owl Emporium catalog complete this must-have package.

Is there anywhere where it states Petunia and Lilly's maiden name? I can't recall it but I could easily be wrong

The 5th book, in Snapes worst memory, revealed their maiden name to be Evans.

quick text confession:

it irks me far more than it should when people take the house traits so literally. just because you are not in slytherin does not mean you cannot be ambitious (the twins were ambitious with their joke shop). same for hufflepuff and loyalty (please try to tell me that the trio was not loyal, to each other & to dumbledore), gryffindor and courageous (virtually every single hufflepuff stayed to fight at hogwarts), ravenclaw and brilliant (HERMIONE, ‘nuff said)

I feel like i have a conversation about this 7 times a day 



Why did Barty Crouch Jr. quit drinking?

Because it was making him Moody.


You might have got the impression that there is a little bit more to Aunt Petunia than meets the eye, and you will find out what it is. She is not a squib, although that is a very good guess. Oh, I am giving a lot away here. I am being shockingly indiscreet." - J.K. Rowling.

If the reveal had been that Petunia was a witch ~ Several years after the war, Harry tracks his aunt down to confront her with what he witnessed in the pensieve.

this would probably make me like her less, but hell if it wouldn’t have been interesting.
