Does anyone else find it kind of heartbreaking that the epilogue of Harry Potter takes place in 3 years? As of September 2016, we’ll have passed the entire timeline of Harry Potter…

Witches and wizards often reveal themselves to each other in public by wearing purple or green, often in combination.  In Britain (and much of Europe) purple has an association with both royalty and religion.  Purple dyes, being costly, were once worn only by those who could afford them; bishops’ rings are traditionally set with amethysts. Green has long had a supernatural connection in the UK. Superstition says that it ought to be worn with care; the fairies are supposedly possessive of it, as it is their proper colour.  It ought never to be worn at weddings, due to a further association with misfortune and death. Green is the colour of much ‘Dark’ magic; of the ‘Dark Mark’, of the luminescent potion in which Voldemort conceals one of his Horcruxes, of many ‘Dark’ spells and curses, and of Slytherin house.  The combination of purple and green, therefore, is suggestive of both sides of magic: the noble and the ignoble, the helpful and the destructive.

Between Supernatural, Warehouse 13, Harry Potter and my other supernatural fandoms that all feature cursed objects. It’s a wonder I’m not terrified of second-hand stores.



Someone made a really good point in the commentary of a post once which basically boiled down to the fact that James and Lily’s patronuses complement each other (stag and doe) while Snape’s merely imitates Lily’s (doe and doe).

All of which just goes to show you how love and obsession are not the same thing at. all. 

Thank you for your time.

Ok. So the Harry Potter fandom is one of the largest there is here on this website. And we’ve been starved of books and films for way too fucking long quite a few years. Now there is a massive fan film coming up, for those of you who don’t know, called The Gathering Storm. It’s a film based in the Marauders era. From what I’ve seen, it’s looking really really good, and the cast is PERFECT. But here is the thing. They need $40,000 by Tuesday, April 22, 2014. If they don’t get it by then, this probably won’t happen. So I’m begging all those of you who can, to DONATEIf you can’t donate, atleast reblog this post so more people can know of it. 

I’m calling on all of you Potterheads for your support, because I know this is a massive fandom, and we can really help this happen. 

Come on you guys, if tumblr can get someone a fluffy chicken, we can definitely make this happen.

Come on you guys, just 12 days left!

If everyone who reblogged/liked this dropped in a dollar or two, we’d be done! We can only pull this off with your help, guys!






46 Hours! 

We’re hit our goal, but we’ve still got time to raise additional funds! Additional funds we’re able to raise will end up getting poured into things like the soundtrack and special effects!

4 Hours until the Kickstarter closes at 2:08 PM EST! 

We’ve passed our goal, but every dollar still helps! Help us make this film the best it can be!

Harry Potter Fans unite for The Gathering Storm!

I’m not connected to this production, but a potentially amazing Harry Potter fanfilm about the Marauders’ Era is trying to get funded. Every dollar counts. If it doesn’t get funded, no one is charged anything. If it does, we’ll get a fantastic Marauders’ Era fanfilm.There are only days left.

We’re off to a great start, but we have a long way to go if we want to bring the Marauders to life!

We’ve got a great story, an incredibly talented team, and a fantastic cast! We’ve got almost everything we need to pull this off the way it deserves to be done.

But now we need your help!

Oooh I need to Harry Potter rant again (I’m so sorry, apparently I’m thinking many thoughts.)

I just saw a post that observed and pointed out the slightly problematic facts surrounding Muggle vs. wizarding advancement and capabilities. The Muggle world is substantially more developed than the Wizarding world; and yet the Muggle world is consistently made fun of. Why do you need owls when you’ve got cellphones? Yeah, they’ve got moving pictures but we have film footage and movies and those move too. It’s very puzzling to think that these worlds can live side by side, with one half always thinking themselves superior, when in reality, a lot of their methods are outdated.

I’ve got a theory though, so hear me out. I do believe that Wizards and Witches have always been superior to Muggles, in terms of capability. Magic has made their lives easier and has done so for centuries. When reading the books, you notice that Muggles and Wizarding folk live apart from one another. They do not interact, they are not even allowed to interact. Sure, this one isn’t the fault of Muggles, since they aren’t even aware of the existence of magic, much less magical folk. And if anyone is made aware, Obliviator squads are there to make sure any collateral damage is taken care of. 

But the Muggle world was never as advanced as it is now. It’s certainly been an upward battle and with electricity and technology, a lot more has happened within the last twenty years than ever before (especially with the emergence of consumerist society). 

Because of the emerging conflicts between Muggles and Wizards, resulting in deaths and persucution (see Witch burnings), usually - as we find out in PoA - with innocent parties suffering, the Ministry had to come up with some way to take control of the situation. And so the International Statute of Secrecy was drawn up in 1689; its sole purpose being, to make sure that Muggles and magical folk stay apart and remain apart. This catered well to Pureblood folk - and I imagine Pureblood mania only grew more and more hysterical as the Wizarding world became more condensed - who obviously advocated for a barrier between “them” and “us”. This would also further stereotypes about Muggles being inferior, being worse off, being rather silly, pathetic creatures. Even Muggle-loving Wizarding families, like the Weasleys, are grossly ignorant of how their society works. Everything baffles and confuses and amazes them because they haven’t been allowed to interact. Any interaction is frowned upon and endangers the Wizarding community, according to the Statute. 

So while I’m sure that in 1689 Wizards were FAR more superior in terms of advancement and their ability to use magic to cater to them and make their lives easier, I think it can be argued that at the turn of the century, Muggle development started speeding up. The amount of breakthroughs being made in the fields of science, philosophy, art, and mathematics within the 20th and 21st centuries, are truly awe-inspiring. However, it should be noted that Wizards remained mostly oblivious to these developments. With a few minor exceptions, ie. for cars, trains, and other methods of transportation, few Muggle inventions were ever adopted and if they were adopted, I wager that it took a while for them to be accepted.

Wizards and Witches in Harry Potter are well known to be rather stubborn when it comes to tradition. They do not like adapting, they do not like change, they do things and believe in things because they’ve always been done in a certain way (with regards to House Elf enslavement in particular). 

I believe that in the last 25-30 years, which would also incorporate Harry’s school years, Muggle society overtook the Wizarding one. Cellphones just are easier to use for contact than owls could ever be, but one must consider that cellphones are still a fairly recent invention. And they certainly weren’t quite as wide spread during the early 90s as they are now. Bearing all this in mind, I believe that their ignorance, fear, and slight arrogance, kept Wizards from noticing that Muggle society had become so advanced. Any gadgets made will have blown right over their heads. I think this is the reason for Wizards making fun of and ridiculing Muggle society. They have the old 17th century picture in their minds, and they live relatively sheltered lives in their wizarding communities, prior to their induction at Hogwarts. Some probably only met Muggles (well, Muggle-born children) at Hogwarts for the first time, after having been told all their lives that Wizards are so much better. So it’s no surprise that their worldview is slightly tainted.

What I’m trying to get to is that, yes, while we know that firearms, cellphones, video cameras, the internet, and credit cards are all very advanced and superior to things like owl post, that does not mean that Wizards and Witches were also aware of this. This knowledge simply wasn’t privy to them because of the way they have been kept separate for centuries.  

Exactly. We might be talking about the same post (or not) but recently I’ve seen a post appear on my dash that mostly focused on this “issue.” I’ve found it quite ridiculous. Really, it even gives wrong canonical information and presents them as “proofs.” I’ve been meaning to write a contradictory one for a while. But you expressed it more eloquently than I ever could. So thank you for this post.
