I know that logically you didn't graduate from Hogwarts in 2005 but there is part of me that still believes that maybe it is real and could happen and we instead are told that it isn't true and just fiction so us muggles don't find out about Hogwarts , and so part of me has this small spark that goes maybe your being honest and it is all real and there is all that wonderful stuff that happens in the movies really does happen

Well, I have to be honest here…

I didn’t graduate from Hogwarts in 2005.

I’m American and though I transferred there for a short time under special circumstances, it was only for a couple of months. Then I returned here.

These kids really shouldn't be posting about getting ready for Hogwarts should they? I mean, statue of secrecy and all...

maybe if it were still 1990 and no one in the muggle world had heard of Harry Potter, but we’ve got complete freedom now! Like I can tell you that I graduated from wizarding school in 2005, because most of the people that read that are not going to believe it.

muahahahaha

everyone’s always going on about pureblood and muggleborn culture in hogwarts but what about the halfbloods

they’re the ones who know all the lyrics to the weird sisters songs and bastille songs they crush on the chosen one and tom hiddleston they go to both walt disney world and the quidditch world cup final for summer holiday and use magic to fix their laptops they’ve got the best of both worlds

the muggleborns get to grow up in the muggle world and then discover the wizarding world totally when they come of age, that’d be pretty interesting. And the ones with awesome parents who would be super into it too and wanting to read all your books and have you tell them the history you’re learning in school and asking you how spells work, awww. they’d still have the best of both worlds.

(though I dunno about fixing laptops since the magic world can’t have technology due to it not working near a lot of magic…)

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
