“Harry Potter” fans have always dreamed of living in the wizarding world. With the latest technological breakthroughs, could Muggles someday live with magic?
Removed from a world where a hat gives you the ultimate aptitude test and you get to have “a cool wizard job” when you grow up, here’s what we reckon the “Harry Potter” characters would have gotten up to after they left school. Includes activism, infamy, and “The Wolf of Wall Street”.
I’ve always thought the moving pictures of the wizarding world are one of the most interesting differences between Muggle and Wizard lives. When you think about it, we take pictures to capture a moment in time. Even our moving pictures taken on film or SD card have limitations. They are still a specific moment and the people within them can’t branch out of what has been recorded.
I consider myself to be a Potterhead, and as such, I’ve reread each book in the series no less than 15 times since I was seven. I used to think it was a pretty normal thing to do, but talking to real normal people made me realize that rereading the same words so many times isn’t common; it’s actually weird. I suppose Potterheads are fairly strange creatures. It’s not like we have superpowers or anything (I wish!). We just happen to be waaaaaay too attached to anything related to the world of the Boy Who Lived. Many times, we don’t realize just how weird some of our “Potter”-induced habits may appear to others. It makes us special in some strange way. Here are some of my weird experiences as a Potterhead.
Books have always been a huge focal point in the Harry Potter series, and this is something that I both love and attribute to J.K. Rowling’s love of them herself. Throughout the series, we’re introduced to a number of different types of books and constantly reminded of their importance; from the book that almost ate Neville (think Prisoner of Azkaban, Care of Magical Creatures class) to Tom Riddle’s Diary to Severus’ copy of Advanced Potion-Making (Half-blood Prince) to even the Tale of Three Brothers, we are truly shown the importance of books and the information they hold. That being said, there’s one set of books that I think has been purposefully left a mystery; and that is the Restricted Section.
