Peter Pettigrew is super important and I feel like people glass over him as a character because they don’t want to deal with the reality of the situation when it comes to him, but he is the soul downfall of the Gryffindor house. I mean throughout the whole series the Gryffindor house is the shining star amongst all the houses and I mean house pride is to be expected to an extent but everyone in the house is presumed good, which personally is problematic because it leaves very little room for diversity and instead forces the reader to generalize.

But Peter is the exception to the rule. I mean not only was he included in this admittedly very impressive and brave set of people but he also thrived there. Many depictions of him describe him to awkward in his youth and I get that but you have to know that he would stir up trouble just as much as the rest of the marauders, and for Sirius to trust him with such an important task as protecting Lily and James is not something that should be taken lightly. And in the end his bravery was not what defined him, but his decision to betray his friends was. Which is stunning because throughout the whole series he is the only Gryffindor to willing turn to Voldemort’s power.

Not only did that show the readers that not all their lovely Gryffindors were good-doers but  in the end the house cannot define you fully. You define you. Your decisions and choice cannot be made from generalizations, they have to stem from you — and what you decide to be. And in the end bravery is so closely define with selfishness that both Gryffindors and Slytherins had the capability not to live up to their stereotypes.

And in the end Gryffindors needed more Peter’s who broke free from their hero roles and Slytherin needed more Andromeda’s who go against the grain and recognize that some of the values that Slytherins are “supposed to have” were something that they could choose to get away from.

Tonks stood just behind him, her bright bubble-gum-pink hair gleaming in the sunlight filtering through the dirty glass station ceiling, wearing heavily patched jeans and a bright purple T-shirt bearing the legend THE WEIRD SISTERS. Next to Tonks was Lupin, his face pale, his hair graying, a long and threadbare overcoat covering a shabby jumper and trousers.

WHY THIS WOMAN WOULD RATHER READ HARRY POTTER EROTICA THAN WATCH PORN

When spoken word artist Brenna Twohy tells you that she is an unabashed devotee of all things “Potterotica” — erotic fiction based in the magical universe of Harry Potter — your response probably shouldn’t be that her taste is “unrealistic.” 

Watch her full monologue here.

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: SOUTH AFRICA

Clinging haphazardly to the jagged sides of the Drakensberg escarpment, the South African Institute for Witches and Wizards is an impressive conglomeration of architectural wonder and eccentric contraptions that keep the sprawling institute welded to the steep slopes of the mountains. Many say roaming the institute is an arduous test of one’s stamina as the primarily vertical layout of the institute relies on a plethora of stairs to navigate (luckily it has gotten better after the restriction on the indoor use of broomsticks was lifted). Over centuries, many pockets of shallow caves have been dug out and furnished by students who like to spend their free time observing the vast landscape before them from high up in the mountainside. The student population supplies much of the profits for Mava’s Zoomtastic Glasses, which is a popular accessory for observing the abundance of wildlife that roam the lands.
