So we know it’s JK’s headcanon that Dudley has a magical child, right? Imagine his kid starting to show signs of magic and Dudley remembering all the odd things that used to happen around Harry. Imagine his kid coming home from Hogwarts and being all, “WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME UNCLE HARRY WAS FAMOUS?” Imagine Dudley reading up on Harry and finding out about all the stuff he did and all the things that happened to him and struggling to grasp how his scrawny, speccy cousin saved the wizarding world. Imagine Dudley, white-faced with terror at his first big family get-together with Harry, Hermione and all the remaining Weasleys. Imagine Mrs Weasley being decidedly cool towards him until he eats fifth helpings of everything she cooks and telling her that she’s the best cook he’s ever met. Imagine Dudley meeting Fleur. Imagine the others embarrassing Harry by telling Dudley stories about him. Imagine Dudley and Harry going down the pub together for beers. Imagine Harry still calling him Big D. Imagine Dudley cheerfully never dieting ever again and being fat and happy forever THE END.
This makes me absurdly happy
did they just made me happy about DUDLEY
y la realidad es que entre más tiempo pasa menos quiero conocer a Ben
Sometimes I think about Mexican Wizards in the Harry Potter verse, with a Wizarding school at the outskirts of Popocatepetl or in between the mountains of La Sierra Madre Occidental, or hidden to muggle eyes in the jungles of Chiapas where a lady who transforms into a jaguar guides the students looking for it.
Old spells in Nahuatl and Zapotec and Mayan and Mixtec and Huichol. Newer spells a mix of Spanish and Latin and the above.
Catholic prayers and Aztec prayers in the same breath, unless you aren’t into that which is okay.
Nahualli instead of patronus.
Learning the properties of the 1000 voices of the Quetzal, each of them a different ingredient in you spell. The correct composition of an altar of the death because necromancy may be condemned but talking to the souls of your loved ones is sacred. Volcanic ash and lava as key ingredients of potions and concoctions.
The witches of Catemaco holding their festivals in plain sight because secrecy of their world is not as important in Mexico where ritual and life are one and the same.
Black Mexican Witches and Wizards of the coasts of Acapulco known for their special brand of magic of African and Caribbean roots that they zelously guard from strangers.
Mayan witches and wizards refusing to send their children to wizarding school, because their magic has been alive and well without being institutionalized for thousands of years.
Meztizo witches and wizards always in the search for an identity, studying the magic of the Spaniards that married great great great grandmothers along the magic of their ancestors that first inhabited the land.
Even White Mexican Wizards bringing influences from European Magic, finding that the system unfairly treats them better because anything European is incorrectly regarded as better.
Not forgetting Mexican American Wizards of course. Wizards and Witches that cross River Bravo with spells that give them gills, or invisibility against the muggle guards that patrol the wall. Finding new communities in the North, searching for a better life for their children. Fighting back against the scorn of White American wizards.
When The Avengers came out I wanted Clint and Natasha to be secret!married so bad, but now after The Winter Soldier I want it even more because Steve finds out and then his first thought is oh my god I kissed a married woman and he doesn’t know whether or not to confess because it was work-related but his conscience is eating away at him and finally he gives in but then he just can’t because Clint’s laughing so damn hard he can’t even hear himself speaking.
The only thing I want in Avengers 2 is Cap picking up Thor’s hammer, totally unaware it should be impossible.
Actually in Marvel lore it is implicitly stated That Steve is one of only a few people on earth actually worthy of carrying Thor’s hammer
To hell with Steve, I want Natasha to pick it up and realise, even with all the red in her ledger, she is still just as worthy as Thor or Steve.
