This Devastating ‘Harry Potter’ Fan Theory Will Break Your Muggle Heart

Well, this is sad…



Did you ever wonder while watching the Harry Potter films or reading the books why the classes in Hogwarts were so small? I mean, they were, weren’t they? What was described by the author as a school that housed 1,000 students, there sure didn’t seem to be 1,000 students. Sure, you could make arguments for hiring extras being expensive or that Hogwarts was really just super progressive and part of the selling points for discerning wizard parents was the smaller, more intimate class size, but the internet has decided that the numbers simply don’t add up.

What are those numbers, exactly? BuzzFeed describes a fan theory that crunches all of the numbers and uses the series’ history to come to a rather sad conclusion. Those numbers are that there are 1,000 students and seven years at Hogwarts. If you divide 1,000 by seven you get 143. Then divide those students…

Farewell, Alan Rickman | Forever Young Adult

via Farewell, Alan Rickman | Forever Young Adult

Well, everyone, I am sad to inform you all about the death of one Alan Rickman from this evil thing called cancer. As we all know, he played a large number of unforgettable characters, such as Hans Gruber in “Die Hard”, Sheriff of Nottingham in “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves”, Alexander Dane/Dr. Lazarus in “Galaxy Quest”, Col. Brandon in “Sense & Sensibility”, and Judge Turpin in “Sweeney Todd”.

But I know all you Potter-loving addicts (and former addicts) know him best as Harry Potter’s Professor Severus Snape. And it’s true.

He will be missed by everyone. (You know what they say about the deaths of famous people always happening in threes…)

P.S., screw you, cancer! I’d zap you to death, but I’m not a wizard.

Worst 100 Harry Potter Spin-offs of All Time – Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia

via Worst 100 Harry Potter Spin-offs of All Time – Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia.

From Wikipedia’s annoying little brother, Uncyclopedia, we have a list of really stupid Harry Potter-like spin-offs that you should(n’t) read. Yet, none of these offending books actually exist, so there you have it.

Anyway, enjoy the list.

How different would the Harry Potter series be, if it was written by George R.R. Martin instead of J.K. Rowling?

Jacquel Chrissy’s Answers – Quora

Well, here’s how I would see it:

1. Ginny Weasley and her twin brother Gerald would be banging each other, creating three bastard children while she was married to Harry Potter. James (who is the oldest) will be sitting on the Iron Throne after Harry dies in a Quidditch accident.

2. Harry would marry Ginny even though he still pines for a dead Hermione Granger. He also hires his best friend Neville Longbottom to be his hand and has illicit relationships with other girls and create numoerous bastard children.

3. Ron who is the most despised member of the Weasley family, is written as a Tyrion lookalike. Plus, he’d be a badass.

4. Neville is executed by James after he discovers the truth about Ginny and Gerald’s relationship. This rather unholy act angers Neville’s son Richard, who goes to war against the magical kingdom of Hogwartos. After several victories against the Weasley family, Arthur has Richard and his mother Hannah killed at the Lion Wedding.

5. Hermione, who was supposed to marry Harry, runs off with Draco Malfoy instead. Their son, Scorpius, is seen as the future hero even though he is raised as Neville’s bastard son. (in other words, D+H=S)

6. When Hermione ran off with Draco, Harry starts a war that gets the entire Malfoy family killed except for one.  Luna escapes across the sea to a foreign land called Azkabanos, where she becomes Khaleesi.

7. James is poisoned at the Snake wedding and Ron is blamed. He wants a trial by combat. His champion Cedric Diggory (who came to Hogs Landing to get revenge for his sister Cho’s death during Harry’s rebellion) fights against Viktor Krum and has his head crushed. (Ron also kills Arthur on the toilet and runs off to Azkabanos, where he meets Luna.)

8. Alice Longbottom would have to marry Ron, but escapes thanks to Severus Snape (who would be like Littlefinger). Lorcan would be crippled by Gerald and be trained in scrying by Hagrid. No word on Lysander.

9. Albus-Severus would be a weak king and Ginny would be arrested by the Order of Merlin for adultery, incest, and murder. Lily-Luna would be in Camelot, engaged to marry Chi Chang. (She also loses an ear)

10. All in all, there will be more violence, more sex, and more bad language than in Game of Thrones.
