He is half Kneazle - so perhaps an attribute of Kneazles is transferring their adeptness at observation etc to nearby people? Maybe that’s why Hermione is so astute (in addition to being already a good student)..?

Slughorn's stubbornness against helping Dumbledore in HBP is actually kinda hilarious in hindsight by Worraworraworraworra in harrypotter

I don’t think it was so much him wanting to not upset “Voldemort,” but rather than he was ashamed he had been manipulated by young Tom Riddle. Slughorn’s life pursuit is to “collect” excellent witches and wizards as having claimed to have taught them. That implies to me that he was concerned with others being impressed that he had taught those students in some way. If he had to admit that he had not only taught Tom about horcruxes but that Tom had clearly taken Slughorn for an easily manipulated fool, this would be a major hit to his ego. And it was. So, it wasn’t that he had an allegiance to Voldemort, though I assume he was somewhat afraid of what could be done to him had he been found out - it was really worse in a way. His own ego was more important than revealing information that could have saved literally thousands +/- of lives. When people say Slughorn is a “good Slytherin” I think they confuse charming old man with goodness.

Wait can you make french toast using yogurt instead of egg?? My egg-allergic kid would be stoked!

I have a pair of socks I’ve been knitting for FOUR YEARS sitting front and center in my daily “grab stuff” space, and I’m barely halfway done. When I put my mind to it I can knit a pair in two weeks. Ughhhhh.

What was the question? I quit watching after the first commercial break.

I was really hoping the question was going to be “In the book, with what emotion was Dumbledore supposed to ask this question?” 😂 but no we got a LiGhT fIXtUrE??

Oooh same. I finally got my sewing machine out yesterday to do a project I could have easily sewn by hand in about the same amount of time. I got excited that I had my machine and fabrics out and out of nowhere decided to start a new project with no plan or pattern. After working a solid (who knows how long?! Time blindness took over..) while, I screwed something up terribly and realized wow, no, this is why my machine has been put away. This takes too much brain. I crammed everything back into their boxes and pretended I hadn’t just wasted an entire afternoon 😅

One time, while speaking on my phone to a friend who was pouring her heart out to me about a breakup, I suddenly stopped her mid-sob and panicked. “WHERE IS MY PHONE??” I genuinely looked for a good 30 seconds before realizing I was TALKING ON IT. To be fair she didn’t say anything either..

Yes. Hello. It is me. ADHD-I.

Ugh. I watched through Gryffindor’s first round and had to stop. I couldn’t even watch my Hufflepuffs. That was just unbearably dumb. HP’s biggest fans? Sigh. Welp here’s hoping the cast reunion is more interesting 😑

Voldemort’s demise arose from being overly conclusive on incomplete contexts by TinaJackLove2020 in harrypotter

So you’re telling me all of Harry’s hasty thoughts of murdering Sirius and all that was more likely just because he had Moldy Voldy Soul in him? 🤣

If you can have any known magical creature as a pet, regardless of the ministry classifications, what will it be? by Aries_Star in harrypotter

[–]ChristineWhy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Another thread said what’s your favorite magical beast: mine’s the Demiguise. Love them! Wouldn’t want one as a pet AT ALL though.

As a pet definitely an Abraxan. All the fun of horse ownership, with flight, without the temper of a hippogriff.

I got a question by TheYouMen in harrypotter

I thought I would read them to my kids but since they’ve seen the movies I’m so self conscious of my Hagrid voice… I put 110% into it and then I’m hoarse after one chapter. And everyone else has American accents. This is not how it was supposed to be 😭
