PS: Mr. Marshall, while your efforts at breeding new and unusual salamanders in the hearth fire were, no doubt, appreciated by the other members of Woodbine House during last year’s uncommonly cold winter, I would caution you to remember that only registered varieties are allowed as pets, and no more than three can live comfortably in a fireplace the size of that in Manor House bedrooms. Kindly take the appropriate measures to avoid setting the building on fire. — Headmistress Blair

That moment in your childhood when you realize that Diagon Alley is just the word diagonally….

image

And the Mirror of Erised is just the word desire backwards.

Didn’t even realize. Does that mean Knockturn Alley is nocturnally (dark/night)?

Yes, and Grimmauld Place is a play on grim old place. 

DUDE.

And Dumbledore is just a dumb old door

Dumbledore is an old word for Bumblebee, which pleases me

LA DOULEUR EXQUISE

[noun]

French: literally “exquisite pain”; the heart-wrenching pain of wanting someone you can never have.

[Christian Birmingham]

I’m really tired of people using and misusing the terms “PC,” “PC police,” and “political correctness.” If you think that saying abusing your wife or child is bad is turning the NFL “PC” or telling an artist not to draw women with their ass in the air on a book you’re trying to sell to women is playing the “PC police” or that the world would be a better place if only whine whine we didn’t have to deal with so much “political correctness” in entertainment then you’re either a dinosaur or a bigot. The term political correctness is used by people who have primarily been considered “standard” (as in white, male, straight, etc etc) to complain that they have to consider the viewpoints of people who aren’t like them. I’m not saying you have to agree with inclusiveness if you really want to stamp your feet over people being equal to one another as human beings, but you don’t get to run the show anymore. You don’t get to refer to the words “transgender” and “cisgender” as being PC or to women asking not to be shown as objects as PC or to people saying that Redskins is a racist team name as PC. These things are all matters of treating people who aren’t straight white dudes like they are just as important as those straight white dudes. It’s not “politically correct.” It’s just correct. Using a term like “PC” just puts a spotlight on you as an intolerant crybaby.
Your voice has been the only voice that matters for so long that it’s frustrating to hear that it’s not the only one that matters anymore, I know. Learn to be a human who has to listen to others.

Yet more of my wizard professor, who has a poodle familiar which follows him everywhere.

I should probably mention that my school also has an astronomy tower decorated with alchemy symbols.

Where the hell do you go to school?
