7 Harry Potter Conspiracies That Will Transfigure How You See The Series

Neville wasn’t bad at magic, he just didn’t have the right wand.

So I am a huge Harry Potter fan. I absolutely fell in love with the world and when I was 11 I became convinced I was going to Hogwarts. I watched all the movies and books at least 20 times, and even have a mug. I am totally that type of person.

But what I love more is reading about Harry Potter conspiracies and how it can actually possibly make sense. So I wanted to list my favorite Harry Potter conspiracies.

1. Dumbledore is actually Ron from the past

So the theory is that Dumbledore knows about Harry’s life (after living it as Ron) and used a Time Traveler to help guide Harry once again. It does seem likely at first because of Ron and Dumbledore’s love of sweets and large hands. But it is important to remember that there isn’t much more merit to this theory. However, it is still fun to imagine.

2. Dumbledore is Death

So this one is kind of complicated. If you remember the Tale of the Three Brothers, there is the elder brother who has the unbeatable wand, the middle brother with the Ressurection Stone and the youngest brother with the Invisibility Cloak. So the elder brother is Voldemort who was murdered for the Elder Wand. Then the middle brother was driven to death after resurrecting a girl he once loved. And there was the youngest brother, which is Harry, who greeted Death as an old friend. So when Harry ‘died’ and went to King’s Cross he greeted Dumbledore ‘as an old friend’. So that would make Dumbledore Death.

3. Neville wasn’t bad at magic, he just didn’t have the right wand

So in the books, Neville is super clumsy and could never get anything right. It’s always a running joke in the book. However, it is possible that he had the wrong wand. The wand always chooses the wizard but he was stuck with his father’s wand so it didn’t work properly for him.

4. Origin behind world "abracadabra"

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 26.0px 'Helvetica Neue'; color: #000000}

So in history, there was a time when muggles and wizards were friends and they muggles knew of the existence of wizards. So there is the Killing Spell, Avada Kedavra, which was initially used to kill rodents and stuff. The muggles tried to copy that but they couldn’t do it properly and ended up saying "abracadabra."

5. Crookshanks was Lily’s cat

Another similar theory is that Crookshanks is Lily reincarnated. The evidence to back this up is that Crookshanks and Lily Potter have similar features such as red hair and green eyes. In addition, Crookshanks knew who Sirius was in the 3rd book and even helped him out (Sirius was Lily’s good friend). In addition, Crookshanks is always trying to catch Peter Pettigrew, who betrayed Lily and James.

6. Everything is a hallucination

So I will admit that this theory actually makes sense. In the beginning of the series, Harry is an 11-year-old orphan living in a cupboard and deprived of food. So there is a chance that he hallucinated the entire magical world as a way to cope with his situation. While this breaks my heart, it is plausible.

7. J.K. Rowling is Rita Skeeter

So this is the exact opposite of the previous theory and it implies that the wizarding world is real. In the books, Skeeter was a nosy reporter who was overtly interested in Harry’s life. She had to regard to privacy or even accuracy and only really cared about the money. So after the Battle of Hogwarts, Rita could have written the whole story and sold it as fiction under the name J.K. Rowling.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
