As far as I know the way it happened was the group (because they were already together then, they did the whole first season of little white lie in 2007, they just weren’t called Starkid yet) talking about Dramione while reading the books and the song Granger Danger happened and then they were like MAN A HARRY POTTER MUSICAL WOULD BE SWEET RIGHT? So Nick and Matt Lang + Brian Holden wrote the script and asked Darren Criss to write the music (or they might’ve just asked if they could use his songs from Little White Lie, I dont know). Either way he ended up writing the music with AJ
The reason? Cause it’s fun and they’re all freakishly talented and were in school for that kind of stuff and loved harry potter so why not xD
it doesn’t get annoying at all because I 10000000% agree with it lol sorry if you thought i’d be on your side.
the movies are different and I can appreciate them anyway as an adaptation. But it’s a whole ‘nother story when they HAVE the canon, have been requested by the author to not change too much about her characters, and decide to say F THAT, GUN DO WAT I WANTZ CUZ SHIPSSS.
THATS annoying. and exactly what they did with Neville/Luna and Harry/Ginny.
Thanks! that is really good to know, and totally works with whats up there now. I can’t add it to the post though because it’s not from an ‘official source’ but still, it sort of reiterates whats already on there =3
All that pre-hogwarts stuff is up to the parents to teach. Which frankly I don’t find very fair because some parents might be dreadful at it and some might be super great and so everyone is starting off on different levels… but i guess it doesn’t matter because you’re not learning any of it at hogwarts anyway.
but lawd i hope everyone can read and write because that would suck.
I would just get a proper tutor to teach mine, or send them to muggle school until they were 11. xD
Uhhm, well thats the thing. People on tumblr don’t like to fact check. I could make a post that said Jo Rowling was buying a boarding school and turning it into a Hogwarts simulation experience and there would be people on here that just look at it and go OMG THATS SO AWESOME -reblog-
instead of checking to make sure it’s actually true. And pretty much all the things listed on the Rumours page are examples of exactly that happening. A lot of the fandom still believes a lot of things that are NOT fact.
So the purpose of the post is to prove to them they’re not. So that they stop believing them and spreading them around as if they WERE fact.
We get a lot of confessions (or rather did in the past, more so) that were confessing to things that weren’t even actual things! I don’t know how many ‘Jo herself is a hufflepuff so nyahahaha’ confessions we got. like a ton.
I just dislike misinformation. so. there ya go.
the rumours page has been up and in the links on the front page for over a year. seriously. of course it will continue. and the heck wouldn’t I do it here? on a popular harry potter blog which happens to be on the site where most of the rumours originate?
If you want to dispute some of the rumours then by all means, everyone is welcome to. But don’t just insinuate that something is incorrect. Prove it. I need sources and facts and they need to be reliable, once you provide them I’ll check them. If you’re right, you’re right. There isn’t going to be a fight about it, the page will be updated with the correct information because that is what it’s for.
But I am a thorough person with these things usually and I don’t believe any of the rumours have been labeled incorrectly. But hey, i could be wrong.
just the last one; a very potter senior year
there is no official date of birth for teddy, but he was born april due to the timeline of events when compared with the dates we’re given in the book =3
Well I would most certainly love to help but I’m a little confused. What do you mean? Are you asking how to turn the ask box on? thats the only thing I can figure so sorry if I got it wrong, just send another ask xD putting it under a readmore even tho its not long lol
I’m pretty sure all of us have pottermore, you’d have to send everyone a message though. I’m going to post this so the other mods can add their usernames if they want to =3 and some followers can as well I guess.
anyway thank you! Im glad you love the blog! that makes us happy ^_^
my pottermore username is CrimsonThestral58
