do you ever wonder what would have happened if the dursleys had actually managed to hide harry’s identity from him until he turned 17

like dumbledore somehow lost track of them when vernon changed jobs or when they moved houses, and for some reason he just couldn’t find them again

and harry potter the boy who lived grew up attending typical schools and his friends knew that sometimes weird shit would happen around him, but they just thought it was a coincidence or that they were imagining it but slowly they all left him and he grew up even more isolated and angry and so he runs away at 16

and meanwhile voldemort knows harry ran away and that he is out there somewhere, vulnerable, but he’s not in the wizarding world, so his death eaters are wreaking havoc trying to find him

and harry obviously has magical talent but he doesn’t know that, but every child in hogwarts does and they’ve learned about him and now know that he’s just out there somewhere, completely unaware of what’s going to happen to him

and some kids it doesn’t bother, but for others like neville and hermione and luna and ron, it’s horrifying to think that this innocent person who should be in their year is going to be hunted down like this

so they decide to go find him before voldemort or the death eaters can

and harry is in a train station on his way to work and is converged upon by about six people who are trying their hardest to not freak out and tell him that he’s a wizard in grave danger, but they know they have such little time

so instead of the wizarding world finding harry at 12, it finds him at 16 and a half when it’s in a much darker, desperate place

i don’t know i just really like the idea of harry potter joining the wizarding world through a bunch of rebellious hogwarts dropouts hiding throughout england and running from enemies he didn’t know he had and learning magic along the way in dark alleys and through street fights

okay so if harry potter was born in 1980, and went to hogwarts in like 91, that means he was in his sixth year in 1996
do you think he knew about the spice girls? i mean.. i know he had shit going on with horcruxes that year but wannabe isn’t something that happens without you taking note of it

so because I’m a giant nerd I was just reading one of the appendixes in the arden edition of hamlet and its talking about doubling in the casting and it’s saying that other than hamlet (obv) horatio is the one character that really can’t be doubled (the only options are reynaldo and fortinbras’s captain - even the actor playing hamlet could concievably double four other characters) and although I already knew that what stuck me was the little discussion about that fact

because the other character not easily doubled is gertrude, and it was being suggested that this highlights her special relationship to hamlet within the play (because hamlet obv isn’t going to be doubled, and the queen is also unlikely to double), reinforcing the centrality of their relationship to the play. and then it says that the fact that horatio is the one role, aside from hamlet, that is almost certainly never going to be doubled really reinforces the importance of their relationship:

'the fact that the actor who plays horatio should be someone who can never be anyone else is striking…does it reinforce hamlet's own view of horatio as an ever-fixed mark, who must be encouraged to go on being himself to the end of the play?'

like horatio isn’t just constant and unchangeable and straightforward in personality. he literally cannot be anything else within the play. he can only ever be himself
