I firmly believe that the reason many Slytherins were easily convinced to join Voldemort was because they were treated like shit by the rest of the houses while they were growing up. Imagine spending seven of the most important years of your life being told that you were part of the bad house and therefore bad yourself. Everyone boos your quidditch team. All the houses will hang out with everyone except you. You grow up being hated by your fellow students and many of your teachers.

Now imagine someone comes along and tells you that you’re not worthless and bad. That you’re invited to join a family where you will right the wrongs committed against you. You have the opportunity to be wanted and powerful instead of a hated outcast. Several of your former classmates are telling you how great it is. How you’re welcomed and needed. These are the kids you grew up with. The classmates who went through all the same things you did. Being a Death Eater sounds pretty good now.

I’ve been waiting for a post like this.

THIS.

Perhaps the other houses didn’t want to give the benefit of the doubt to a group considered and proven to be hateful bigots. The teachers have their own faults with encouraging the segregation, but…ugh being abused (if that’s what you’re calling it) does not make it acceptable to believe and take part in the murder, torture, and ERADICATION of a group of people.

this is how i really imagined him

wow okay yes.

The only time they ever got close in the films was GoF AND THEN THEY CUT IT ALL OFF IN OOtP AND I’VE NEVER BEEN MORE HEARTBROKEN TO SEE A FICTIONAL CHARACTER GET A HAIRCUT.

i never reblog anything but superatural, but this is honestly the most beautiful drawing of a fiction-character i have ever seen. i am highly frustrated that daniel didn’t look like this omg

"To an extent it’s a problem with fandom: the fact is that you’ve got thousands of intelligent people thinking about a problem, and statistically speaking some of them are likely to come up with something more clever than the creators. […] There comes a point at which, frankly, fandom IS better than the creators. We have more minds, more cumulative talent, more voices arguing for different kinds of representation, more backstory… The thing is that I rarely get involved with a show without a fandom anymore, because I actually enjoy the analysis and fic and fun more than I enjoy the show itself. Similarly, I get drawn into shows I otherwise wouldn’t really consider by the strength of their fandom. And I want the shows to live up to their fandom, but it’s an almost impossibly high bar, because the parts of fandom I choose to engage with are often parts that wouldn’t be considered sufficiently accessible or relevant to a majority of viewers. So… basically, for me, fandom is primary, and canon is secondary. The latter is really only there to facilitate the former.”
