Not a confession Hi I just started a confession blog and I don't know how to get followers and confessions because I just want it to be confessions but no one will confess as no one knows my blog any ideas? How did you get followers and people to confess? Thanks

I didn’t start this blog, but the girl who did start it basically just made her own confessions at first. Like from her own opinions (or maybe you could make some with things you’ve heard people say about whatever your topic is) I’m pretty sure thats what she did anyway, and she tagged them with proper and popular tags so people would see and then it just kind of took off. She didn’t really do anything at all. 

she also had the advantage of starting this one up right as the confessions blogs were taking off, so there weren’t any other harry potter confession blogs in existence yet. When confession blogs got popular, this was THE harry potter one and that helped a lot. 

so really, now, it’s all about tagging so you’re getting the right exposure i guess, I don’t really have any better advice? Find related blogs to promote you or become sister blogs with other confession types. We have a page for other confession type blogs, i don’t know how much it helps though since everyone is here for harry potter Dx sorry I can’t be more useful

"Godfather?" sputtered Uncle Vernon. "You haven’t got a godfather!"

"Yes, I have," said Harry brightly. "He was my mum and dad’s best friend. He’s a convicted murderer, but he’s broken out of wizard prison and he’s on the run. He likes to keep in touch with me, though… keep up with my news… check if I’m happy…"

Alice Longbottom would've tried to to barter her life for Nevilles just as Lily did. So he still would've gotten the protection and been the chosen one. They were Aurors too, you seem to be forgetting that. All he needed was for voldemort to mark him as an equal

@_@ not to be rude anon but you completely missed the entire point of that post. 

choice.

If Alice had the time or option of course she would’ve tried to save her son. thats the difference. thats the point. if the scenarios were on them, she WOULDN’T have had it. Voldemort would not have asked her to step aside and given her the option of CHOOSING to die over choosing to live. He would’ve just killed her because she didn’t have a high ranking death eater that he respected asking him to spare her. She would’ve gone fast without a second thought just like James. And so the protection would not have occurred. And so there would be no ‘marking him as equal’ because the curse wouldn’t have had anything to backfire off of to split his soul and create the horcrux. It would’ve just killed baby neville. does that make more sense?

there was a sign at a pro-life rally that made me think. It said "If Lily Potter had had an abortion than who would have stopped Voldemort?" And (this is in no way about the life/choice debate) but isn't the actual answer to that Neville? I mean, I wanted to ask the holder if they'd even read the books.

lol I’ve seen that sign somewhere online too

and I mean, I suppose so I know Neville being the back up chosen one is popular, but I personally don’t think Neville could’ve been the chosen one. And heres why;

even tho dumbledore says the prophecy could’ve been about either boy, if Harry Potter hadn’t been born then the domino’s would not have fallen as they did and Voldemort would have won the war. When I look at the whole picture there is one very crucial element to Harry Potter becoming the chosen one, that Neville would not have had.

and that is that Lily Potter was given a choice, by voldemort, to live. Because Snape asked him to spare her and he was important to Voldemort, so when he showed up at the potters he told her to stand aside so that he could kill her son. He was going to let her live and she chose to die trying to protect harry even though it was obvious he would kill him once she was dead anyway.

that choice was very important, very impactful, it is the magic that protected him from the killing curse in the first place. 

The Longbottoms would not have had that advantage. No one would’ve asked Voldemort to spare one of them. He would’ve walked into their house, killed them both and then killed Neville with the ease of which he took James Potters life.  

Harry was the result of several pieces fitting together, where in if just one of them hadn’t happened, he would’ve died that night. And without him the characters we know would’ve grown up in a UK controlled by death eaters. It was all about choices.

Snape chose the Deatheaters, Voldemort chose the Potters, Lily chose to die and Harry became the chosen one.

I am in no way saying that Neville wasn’t important to the story, because he was, immensely. Maybe one of the most important characters, but Harry is the only one that could’ve been the chosen one in my opinion. 

#confusingthemuggles . I love it. I found this on facebook, its too distorted to see who originally posted it so if you know, let me know! 

but I like it >} also its a great thing to do on the Twins’ birthday lol

but remember if youre going to do it, make it as believable as possible! its not about cosplaying characters, you gotta do it like youre actually part of the wizarding world. Wear whack ass things like they did in GoF, thinking they were blending in with the muggles lolol. xDD or long robs or pointy hats, carry your wands! 

man. I am going to need all the pictures after this thing.

But seriously do you ever think that all those who died in the battle of Hogwarts probably went on the chocolate frogs’ cards . And Teddy opening one before going on the train to Hogwarts and seeing his parents smiling at him, so they were actually there to see him off on his first year.

Personally, I think John Williams captured the magic best out of all four composers’ music.

Most casting I liked or got used to, this one, I never did.
