Love connection


There are so many relationships within the series, so I’ve decided to make this post ongoing, posting related articles in the future. But for now, let’s start with the whole Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione thing. I’m going to begin by saying this news from Rowling isn’t going to be easy for any true Harry Potter fan because we are so accustomed with Character A and Character B being together. They should be together just because they should be together. But why? Read More »

Bullied by Muggles


Dear Harry Potter, My life being a student in a muggle school was quite horrible. My guy close friend had left me just because I'm weird. Maybe because he doesn't like people who believes in magic and who are witches and wizards. I used to sit alone in the corner and decided to end our friendship because I realized that he's not a true friend. We still do not talk now, but my biggest problem is the teachers here in the muggle school are so mean, especially our Math and Physics teachers. They call us stupid and they don't tolerate it. It's kinda stressful and I really don't know how to handle it. My classmates, on the other hand, were annoyed with me, not because I'm hot-headed when I'm busy - it's because I'm too quiet. Actually, that's really me. I'm not a type of person who used to talk a lot. They used to tell me negative things that aren't true and I'm usually bullied by some complete strangers. I really want to go back to Hogwarts and I have to wait until September 1 to pack my things and go straight to Platform 9 and 3/4. I don't know how to be strong, could you please help me? Read More »
