do you ever think about the judges for the triwizard tournament trying to figure out who to kidnap for the second task

like they’re all just sitting in dumbledore’s office and karkaroff goes “well word on the street says that krum has a crush on that granger girl”

"damn," says dumbledore, "I wanted harry to rescue her. well, what about the delightful miss chang?"

"no," says bagman, "we’ve got her down for diggory"

"stop sinking my ships," says dumbledore

My disappointment in Movie!Hermione comes from the fact that Jo literally handed the film writers a wonderfully written, multi-faceted, and incredibly interesting character on a silver platter and they completely rebuffed her. Hermione in the books is bossy, she nit-picks, she’s protective, she’s studious to the point of being obsessive, she is spiteful, she is sneaky, and she is terrified of rejection. Hermione in the films is basically supergirl who skates by on other character’s lines and is portrayed as the sole reason Harry made it to the end (“We wouldn’t last two days without her”. Awesome, except I was under the impression it was literally a group effort, not just Hermione carrying all the weight around on her super muscly Schwarzenegger shoulders.) They took her and polished her until she was nearly unrecognizable to me. Except they didn’t need to! Hermione was already great the way she was written! Give me tattletale Hermione who gets Harry’s Firebolt confiscated because she’s worried it could be dangerous. Give me activist Hermione who starts S.P.E.W because she has a saviour complex. Give me underhanded Hermione who bewitches a piece of parchment to permanently scar anyone who snitches about the DA. Give me trembling Hermione who sits in Ron’s room and cries while explaining she modified her parents’ memories and may never see them again. Because THAT Hermione-that Hermione is important. Because she was proof you can be flawed and still be considered valuable and a good person who deserves the world. And I don’t get that from the Hermione in the films. At all.

So this is what trust looks like.

Funny, my first thought was “So this is what the patriarchy looks like.”

Yup. This is how women are supposed to trust men. With their lives.

Woman : “Hey, can we just… Drop the bow?”Man : “WHY DON’T YOU TRUST ME I’M NOT A VIOLENT GUY, YOU ARE INSULTING ME THINKING I WILL HURT YOU!!!”Woman : “No it’s just… Well I’m afraid.”Man : “But why? Look at me, I’m not afraid. And we’re equal, look, we pull the bow together.”Woman : “I think we’re not equal, you can kill me with the arrow and I can’t.”Man : “What? So you would like to be able to kill me? You’re so agressive!”Woman : “That’s not what I mean, we were talking about equality : you can hurt me, I can’t.”Man : “Of course you can. You can hit me with the bow if you want.”Woman : “That’s not the same thing, it will never kill you.”Man : “Oh, you always complaining, stop victimising yourself! Do I talk about the difficulty of holding the arrow? Of the responsibility it giving to me?”[…]Etc, etc.Every debates about gender equality, ladies and gentleman.


omg the comments.  Brilliant.

Your character falls into the “friend zone” - Is this primarily a man’s problem, or are women put in the friend zone as well? x
