Happy Birthday to our first Dumbledore, Richard Harris❤️
Dumbledore actually defeated the two greatest wizard (dark) during his time. He defeated Grindelwald and nearly defeated Voldemort, and left him for the future generation to finish him.
He was so well planned.
Everything went according to his plans.
Type D for Dumblydorrr
(The following is a short fanfic on the events after Myrtle's death, we will follow the events that include Olive Hornby, Tom Riddle, Professor Dumbledore and Headmaster Dippet. I may have chapters about other characters as well.)
"She's dead, Myrtle's dead! I found her headmaster, in the girl's bathroom!-"
"Calm down Hornby, and tell me slowly." The professor told her calmly.
Olive Hornby's raven black hair was bedraggled, her bright pretty blue eyes full of panic, her face stained with tears.
"I f-found Myrtle d-dead.. in the g-girls bathroom, sir.. on the second f-floor." Hornby let out a pathetic hiccup.
"Myrtle.. dead?!" Professor Dippet asked, confused and shocked.
"Yes p-professor! I-it's all my fault! I taunted her y-you see and she r-ran off and now she's d-dead!" Her voice became a wail as she collapsed onto the floor, letting out sobs.
Dippet turned pale, "Why d-don't you take yourself to t-the hospital wing, and go to the m-matron for something t-that might h-help with shock.. d-dear?" he stuttered, showing the sobbing girl out of his office, and giving her a shaky pat on the back.
Before throwing some powder in the fire, "Albus Dumbledore," he muttered, turning his back to the fire as Dumbledore suddenly sprung from the fire and into the Headmaster's office. "A-albus, there's been a death at Hogwarts."
So I saw this post, and I decided to share it not only because it’s funny, but also because it got me thinking.
What determines the lifespan of a witch/wizard? Like Dumbledore lived to be over 300 years old (not sure his exact age, I need to re-read the book) but this says the average lifespan of a wizard is true. Assuming that this is true, what made it so Dumbledore lived so much longer? And I believe McGonagall was also older then 100, so what made her live longer?
Comment down bellow your theories!
We all know it. You know it, I know it, even the neighborhood stray who always has cat fights in our garage right outside my window in the middle of the night knows it.
JK Rowling is horrible at math.
Okay, okay, y’all who didn’t know, I bet, are confused af rn. “Oh, Queenie, what in Tartarus do you mean? Why do you say that?”
There are three incidents (only thre that I remember, tho I’m sure there are more) where she has demonstrated how terrible she is at math.
“Oh, but that’s not that many, everyone makes mistakes!”
We have, several times, brought these mistakes up on her twitter, she has never addressed it. There’s only one time I remember where she actually corrected herself, and that was with the ages of the Weasleys.
Exactly what she said was, “Bill is two years older than Charlie, who is two years older than Percy.”
Remember that Charlie was a seeker, and right after him came Harry? Well, keep that in mind. Now let’s do very simple math.
In Harry’s first year, Percy was in his fifth. And since Charlie is two years older than Percy, he would’ve been starting his seventh year. And we know that Charlie was the Gryffindor Seeker right up to his graduation.
Admittedly, Joanne did correct herself in a later interview, saying: “I knew I’d messed up that question the moment I had answered it, but web chats move fast and I wanted to keep going to get through as many questions as I could. Bill is two years older than Charlie, who is three years older than Percy, who is two years older than Fred and George, who are two years older than Ron, who is a year older than Ginny. Sorry. Maths is not my strong suit.”
But there are three other occasions where she had messed up wayy more than here, and she still hasn’t corrected them.
For one, Dumbledore’s age.
JK Rowling: He was born in 1881.
Me: Oh, so he was 116 when he die—
JK Rowling: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA PHYYYYCHHHHHH HE WAS IN HIS ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTIES, BUT HE WAS STILL BORN IN 1881.
Also, McGonagall’s age.
If y’all watched CoG, you’ll know who this is:
That’s right. None other than Minnie McGee herself. Looking quite old for a -8 year old professor.
Yes, you read that right.
Minnie was born on October 4 1935, but she looks like she’s in her twenties or thirties in 1927.
Okay, okay, but really, let’s ignore those and see how many students there are at Hogwarts.
Interviewer: How many students does Hogwarts have?
JKR: Around a thousand
*throws door open dramatically* OBJECTION, YOUR HONOR!!
As you all may (or may not, Idc either way) know, there are 40 children Sorted each year. Ten into each house. Out of the ten, five are boys and five are girls. So you can do this equation two ways, either is correct.
Either you can do forty times seven, or you’d realize that there are seventy students in each house, and four houses, so you’d do seventy times four.
They’re exactly the same. Either way, you’d get two hundred and eighty.
*turns to JKR slowly* now tell me, Joanne Rowling, is two hundred and eighty near one thousand?
JKR: I cAn’T dO mAtH, sO iDk—
Me: there’s a seven hundred and twenty difference—
JKR: Soooo.... it’s close?
I made this, hope you enjoy it!
Born after dead, shades of bright red, my tears are power beyond ever measured, but power that doesn’t attack.
What am I?
Tell me if this is a bad riddle, I welcome all criticism.
