i named both my kids after HP characters, but both are regular names that people wouldn’t know unless i told them.
i love my little xenophilius and baby mundungus
call me crazy but i don't think writing fanfiction should be tiered deeper on the iceberg than naming your child after a harry potter character
My brother's girlfriend is a Disney Adult AND a Potterhead, and one time she forced me to take the sorting quiz. I got Hufflepuff but she insisted I was a Gryffindore because SHE was a Hufflepuff and we're too different to be in the same house. She was so mad at me for getting Hufflepuff she didn't talk to me for two full days.
She was 31 at the time.
I was heartbroken that Kurtis didn’t cover My Immortal but he redeemed himself by covering the Snapewives
I can't believe we had a Harry Potter iceberg mentioning fanfiction WITHOUT talking about My Immortal. A classic masterpiece smh
I named my daughter after a Harry Potter character! My daughter Ebony Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way is the light of my life ❤️❤️❤️
I love this but there is no way you put WRITING FANFICTION on a lower level than naming your child Lucius Malfoy 😭😭😭
Honestly I think making a thirst trap of an actor who was actually 13-17 at that time is a much larger issue than thirsting over the underage character
The fanfiction about Hermione saving Ron from 9/11 legitimately feels like an Oneyplays bit.
i played quiddich at my middle school! they made me be the golden snitch, cause i was pretty small. instead of having to get anything off me, i counted as the entire golden snitch, so other students had to full body tackle me. so imagine you're a principal at a middle school, and you go into the yard at reeces. and one of your teachers is watching casually as a group of nerds tackle a small disabled child over and over again with broomsticks between their legs
Love kurtis taking the time to interview smaller creators and giving them a spotlight to talk about their passions! It’s a creative way to bring inclusivity that usually doesn’t get as much exposure ~
You can change your patronus. Nymphadora’s changed to a wolf when she married Lupin as he became her protective figure. That’s why I never really understood the concept. It’s an animal you like or deem as a guardian, so it can change throughout your life as you do.
I literally am working with a kindergarten kid who is named Hermione and when I was doing assessment with her I casually asked her, “so… your mother really loves reading huh?” And she gave the most tortured sigh I’ve ever heard from a kindergartener and said “yes…”
Also she has a classmate named Sherlock which is a whole other iceberg lol
I absolutely ADORE that Ash said "Be yourself" especially when they play young Remus Lupin, a character famously known for being ostracized as a werewolf and forced to hide his true self from society. "Remus Lupin" would absolutely say "Be yourself". ❤
Also, as a former potterhead (not anymore tho, since it's too hard for me to separate art/artist and all I see right now is JKR's negativity, hatred, discrimination and prejudice) I used to belong to the Hufflepuff house. And I was very proud to be a Hufflepuff! We're really good at finding things, you know? 💛🖤
Let me just say that, out of the 4 Hogwarts houses, I used to find Hufflepuff the least discriminatory and definitely the most open minded, it's unfair it was treated as the Dumb House. What kind of wise, powerful wizard/witch would found a wizarding school and just be like: "Ah yes, I will teach these children... but *only the brave ones*, fuck the others!"? Helga Hufflepuff on the other hand was like "Yeah well this is a school and I'm going to teach and tutor the lot, regardless of origin or character". Total boss that Helga if you ask me.
See? A bit of my former potterhead-ism might still be there buried somewhere.
Peace, people! And yes, be yourself! 😊
fun fact: for years, obscure family members and secret santa gifters gave me the sorcerer's stone as a gift when i would say i liked to read. at one point in time, i had 3 copies of the same book, all gifted from different people who figured i'd like harry potter. i read the first few chapters of the book and didn't like it.
i love how kurtis always makes sure to get first hand testimonies from actual people in these communities
I haven’t played it, but I can see the appeal of live quidditch. If you grow up as a nerd, you get clear “you are not welcome here” vibes when we try to engage with sports. I’m sure a lot of the players dreamed of playing the game as kids, but others are just happy to have the opportunity to participate in a team sport where they can count on belonging.
The literal worst HP thing I've ever seen was a website that was just a countdown until Emma Watson turned 18 so it would be "okay" to sexualize her. Even to this day, I feel so bad for her because of how gross people are about her.
Kurtis didn't use the Barbie "balls" audio once when talking about the Golden Snitch. This is character growth
