You’ve just got to get past step 2.
But Luna Lovegood is an angel
@Monad Vairocana, a lunatic angel
@Monad Vairocana, and insane for the most part. Not clinically but I couldn't stand her longer than a day or two.
@Devils Conscious, her poor father
Seriously though, McGonagall is the real MVP. Just started reading them a couple of years ago, and right from the get go I knew McGonagall would be my favorite...she was bumped to second favorite when Lupin came along, but still up there.
@SimonPetrikov, really we’re just gonna forget about Neville. He was terrible at everything but always tried to do the right thing. Then suddenly he chops the head off a giant mother fvcking snake and you realize he’s really the hero and harry is a fake boy who lived.
@BigJohnson86, Even in the books Neville being the hero was a stretch. Literally in the seventh book the main three are surprised that Neville of all people helped keeps the resistance going and whatnot. He was never a believable hero sadly.
@Devils Conscious, in terms of the book it could have gone either way Neville or Harry could have been the chosen one the difference being that Harry would have still had marketable sports skills well Neville had .........herbology and not much else till year five
@eleven, yeah but Neville always tried to do the right thing. Mcgonacgall didn’t help with the sorcerers stone even after she was told that it was gonna be stolen. She and dumbles left him at the doorstep of “the worst sort of muggles imaginable” which is both bigoted and irresponsible. Neville is an Everyman trying his best to do the right thing and defeats more horcruxes than her = better hero
@BigJohnson86, first of all Mcgonagall didn’t look into the Philosopher’s stone’s protection because it was a group of first year accusing a teacher they didn’t like of evil who would listen to them they left Harry with the durslings because they didn’t have much other choice to leave him with a magical family say the Weaslys he would have grown up with an ego akin to molfoy which would have been just as damaging but Neville is great hero as well it kinda makes you wonder how different the story would have been had Neville had the scar instead of Harry
@eleven, you pose that he would be spoilt but I’ll counter with this: if you died and your kid became famous would you rather he be spoilt or live in a cupboard? Cuz I would much rather my kid be a spoilt twat than unloved and possibly abused. That decision was made by dumbledore to harden harry for Voldemort’s return.
@BigJohnson86, that is not in any what I said the ego would take more of an effect on Harry’s next encounter with the forces of darkness and could just as easily have harry assume he’s more powerful than he really is and also possibly invulnerable considering the fact that he was the only person to survive the killing curse it’s a stupid assumption but something a child would definitely believe by hiding his achievements it ensures a good dose of humility however it didn’t help that harry attracts trouble like a magnet
@eleven, that might have been what you thought, but it’s not what you said. I just went back and read your comment again and you said and I quote “he would have grown up with an ego akin to Malfoy which would have been just as damaging” I’m not saying this is wrong but you posed that they worried about spoiling them. Which of the 2 choices for your child would you choose? Mcgonogal stated they were awful but left a kid to be mistreated. I’d rather my kids be spoiled little twats than living in a cupboard.
@BigJohnson86, well I’m sorry I worded it poorly
@BigJohnson86, every time I re-read HP I realize the main characters are just worthless. The books are great and the characters being so flawed makes them easy to relate to
@WholeLottaDucks, yeah hermione is the biggest Mary Sue ever and Ron and Harry are the most unmotivated people in the world even after the 5th time someone tried to kill them.
It's been over 7 years, Harry Potter is over READ A DIFFERENT BOOK
@ptitty1231, THANK YOU IVE BEEN SAYING THIS FOR SO LONG
@ptitty1231, Been waiting about that long for Winds of winter. My series isn't over yet.
@ptitty1231, why would you say something so brave yet so controversial
@ptitty1231, NO. FVCK YOU. HARRY POTTER IS THE ONLY BOOK.
@ptitty1231, No it isn't. Fantastic Beasts is still going on.
@ptitty1231, Neville is pretty lure of heart
@ptitty1231, *throws the scroll of truth Nyehhhh
@ptitty1231, wait... there are other books??
@ptitty1231, it has been 7 years but it's not like that changes the impact of the story or how great it is. Plus they released the cursed child which I don't see anyone ever talk about because Jesus people it's canon and there's so many issues in that story we could discuss.
@ptitty1231, I only read books I’ve already read
@Devils Conscious, that'd be ok if people would stop using the series (and Hunger Games as well) as hyperbole in editorials and if JK would stop retcon her characters for woke points
Step 6: You realize that Snape loved Harry and looked out for him the entire time.......and then he dies
Well I mean, he was a good guy in the sense of him siding with the morally right side.
Step 6: skip steps 3-5 and grow up
Snape was honestly the most human of the old guard characters. He was pushed down the same dark path the other death eaters bought into, but realized he wasn't down with genocide, but he also didn't want to end up a nagini snack, so he just kept trying to keep his a$$ out of the fire
Got hung up on "didn't grown"
What about hagrid?
Step 6. Realizing Mcgonagall is an extreme conservative who in the 7th book stereotypes all slytherins as bad and locks them away in the dungeons. In essence declaring a state of emergency and enacting internment camps like back in WWII.
Step 8: Realising Molly Weasley is the mother we all wish we had
And Luna Lovegood is a sweet baby angel.
Snape is the hero
Snape was actually a great person. Most people are just incapable of understanding his character & reading past surface level.
