poc!potter makes so much sense though

think about it: petunia and vernon /hated/ james potter, made up stories about him “probably being unemployed” and they seemed to thoroughly dislike him for more than just the magic. how much d’you wanna bet me that their prejudice may have been on the racist side? they treated harry pretty awfully, even considering his magic. they hated that he looked like james as well. 

plus, harry has “great skin” but no specified skin colour or tone or anything! 

draw and write about east asian harry, south asian harry, black harry. draw harry potter in every single race there is.

poc!potter is not really a racebend bc it’s all within canon

Here’s my theory. The Harry Potter trio are actually representations of the other houses. Hermione is Ravenclaw. Ron is Hufflepuff. Harry is Slytheryn. They’re all in Gryffindor because they asked. In fact, everyone in that house could have been in another house if they hadn’t asked to be in Gryffindor. You have be ask to be in Gryffindor because their most defining feature is bravery and anyone can choose to be brave.

 (tags from pimpernels)

not to be a douche, because this tag commentary is fucking great all the way up to this point, but neville did not choose gryffindor. gryffindor chose him. in my LITERAL FAVOURITE of all the pottermore extras, we find that the hat almost immediately told him he was a gryffindor born but neville was so timid and scared that he felt it was too much pressure and asked the hat to put him in hufflepuff instead. the hat refused. I can see this scene SO CLEARLY in my mind, can hear the conversation, it is just so perfect - neville almost begging the hat to reconsider, he can’t belong there, he’s not brave enough; and the sorting hat basically saying LISTEN, KID, I KNOW YOU’RE SCARED. BUT I CAN LITERALLY SEE INSIDE YOUR MIND RIGHT NOW, I KNOW WHAT’S IN YOUR HEART. THERE IS A HERO INSIDE YOU OKAY AND YOU’RE GOING TO THE HOUSE THAT WILL NURTURE IT AND HELP IT GROW AND ONE DAY, NEVILLE LONGBOTTOM, IT IS GOING TO COME OUT AND EVEN YOU WILL BE AMAZED AT WHAT YOU’RE CAPABLE OF

can you imagine the marauders’ yule ball and how psyched james would be because lilly agreed to go with him and he keeps talking about it but every time he mentions it, sirius goes “james, are you sure you wouldn’t rather go stag" and the tenth times he says it, remus punches him so hard in the arm that he falls into the lake

Can we all please take a moment to remember that at some point Sirius Black decided he wanted his fugitive pseudonym to be Snuffles.

"Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same; Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends…friends…friends…friends… Harry felt a great rush of affection for Luna" — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
