More Interesting Facts About,

a deep dive into potterheads...

See you. I solemnly swear, friends, you fooled me with the sauce. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was released on June 26, 1997, a book about an orphaned boy wizard. Destined for greatness during her first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry due to the immediate success of this book, author JK Rowling began writing more and more installations in the Harry Potter series and eventually wrote seven novels along the way, immensely successful film adaptations were created. That absolutely catapulted the popularity of the Harry Potter franchise to levels never seen before. They made Harry Potter games. The first three were incredible.

The rest were literally dogs. They made Harry Potter clothes, toys, pancake mix. They even made Harry Potter cologne that I wish they gave out. free on midnight PE book releases, I'm just kidding but not really. I saw the first Harry Potter movie in theaters when I was 7 years old and immediately fell in love with it. I remember it was November when it came out and it hadn't snowed yet that year and it wasn't supposed to snow for another week, but when my family and I left the theater, it was snowing and I got scared because I thought it was magical.

Looking back now It was just a classic case of meteorologists being wrong all the time. Then I started reading the books after seeing the first movie, but then I realized video games and skateboarding existed, so I just did that while waiting for the rest of the movies to come out. Come out and let me tell you, friend, I was a huge Harry Potter fan when I was a kid. I played all the video games. I was sorted into my Hogwarts house on the original Harry Potter Flash website. I also did Hogwarts roll play at the habo hotel, but I'm not going to divulge any more details about it.
I continued with the Harry Potter franchise until the release of the last film in 2011 and it was great to see the end of the series that I grew up watching, seeing the characters that I grew up with and also dealing with the same problems that I was dealing with. as I became a young adult, I mean, not all the same problems, obviously, I mean the evil snake man trying to kill you happens to all teenagers when the credits rolled for the final movie, which seemed like a good time for Leave Harry Potter in the past, but for other people the love of Harry Potter persisted, the Hogwarts Express continued to run even though the book series and main film franchise came to an end.
Harry Potter fans, also known as

potterheads

, had no shortage of ways to maintain the fandom. Live and see, there is nothing wrong with being a fan of a particular media, but as I mentioned in my

deep

dive

into the Disney adult video I did a couple of years ago, some people take things too far and that's what we're going to do. To talk about today in this

deep

dive

into Potterheads, so in this video I sorted everything out by making my own Potter Iceberg head. Icebergs are a way of categorizing gentle things at the surface level and gradually moving deeper into the iceberg until you reach the super. messy stuff and I don't want to sound like Titanic here, but before we get into the iceberg I feel like I need to address the transphobic elephant in the room JK Rowling I feel like I can't talk about Harry Potter without mentioning the many controversies surrounding the author of the JK Rowling series one of the tame criticisms of JK Rowling is how she likes to retroactively add to the Harry Potter series like a couple of years ago when she said oh yeah Dumbledore is gay by the way didn't I say that?
I'm not telling you guys that yes, the last lines of the final book were supposed to be the scar that hadn't hurt Harry for 19 years, everything was fine. Dumbledore was gay, but I ran out of time. That's the publishing business, but that's definitely not the biggest criticism of it. JK Rowling is what many call Turf and I don't mean a fake patch of grass Turf T RF a radical trans exclusionary feminist a person whose views on gender identity are considered hostile to transgender people or who opposes social policies and policies designed to be inclusive of transgender people, then someone who says: I'm all for equality, yes, except that fuing people.
JK Ring has posted a lot of transphobic things on Twitter. You know, for example, five reasons to be worried about the new transactivism and also affirm that the existence of trans people. people erase the lived reality of women around the world, even recently stating that she would, quote, happily go to jail for using someone's wrong pronouns, okay, then go to jail, Mr. Electric, send her to Askaban and he will hex her right away, too dude, what does that mean? Dude, what did he do? What do you mean by JK Rowling? When would that happen? What are you in for DUI?
Classic driving. Under the influence. No, someone told me her pronouns and I, DUI, didn't understand it. Okay, I grabbed a cop's gun and everything. Those transphobic comments are pretty crazy things to say, especially when the main themes of your seven children's novels were the acceptance of love and belonging, you know, I'd like to believe it, since JK's full name is just a joke. I assume these are all just jokes, but unfortunately. No, she is serious and after these statements a lot of cast members from the Harry Potter movies spoke out against her hateful rhetoric and distanced themselves from the franchise and since then the issue of separating the art from the artist has always been prevails. is discussing anything Harry Potter related and I'm not going to sit here and tell you what content you should or shouldn't consume unless it's my comedy special premiering tonight, you should definitely consume it, but when it comes to consuming Harry.
Potter content that directly supports JK Rowling monetarily. I don't know, maybe just maybe just don't do that. Life is fine without Harry Potter. You know, it's the same if you really want to see the kids go to school so bad. I do not do it. I know, mate, that's a whole different problem you have to deal with, like being a Potterhead fan before rp was already like a side eye, but now, dude, that's not a side eye, but rather a rear eye in all this sense. I'm back looking at you criminal offensive back eye okay sorry I feel like I couldn't really make a Harry Potter video without talking about it from the beginning so it's Iceberg time this iceberg is five levels deep and Potterhead Mania gets crazier.
We go deeper, so the first level is casual. Potterhead watches the movies once a year. Get to know his Hogwarts house and his Patronis. She possibly read the books once. I feel like this is the majority of the Potterhead fandom people who know everything about Harry Potter and how. They would fit into the Harry Potter universe, but they don't really make it part of her personality. I'm probably saying this is the level she operated at as a child. I remember being sorted into Hufflepuff as a kid and having like a literal existential crisis because I wanted to be sorted into Raven Claw, thinking back I think I cried, which is really embarrassing.
That's for those of you who don't know that there are four houses at Hogwarts where students are segregated, sorry, classified and each house is associated with certain traits, but to sum it up as simply as possible, Gryffindor is the good guys, the bad guys of Slytherin. Ravenclaw are smart people. Hufflepuff is everyone else and it's because Gryffindor and Slytherin are opposites, the good guys, the bad guys, therefore the other. the houses should also be opposite each other and if Ravenclaw is smart then Hufflepuff is, I guess that would mean they are. I don't know what the opposite of intelligent is.
I'm a Hufflepuff, we're stupid. I cried when I arrived. ordered online alone in my computer room if I had to do that in front of thousands of kids if I was an 11 year old buying magic and I sat down and a person put on a magic hat and he was like an idiot I transfer it to a public school immediately and generally people of the first category also know what their petronus is and a petronis is like a kind of spectral animal that protects that person when he casts the expecto patronum spell she waits for my patronum until I flow and that was One thing I never liked in movies.
Now I realize that the first part of this iceberg is just me making fun of movies, but let me get it out of my system. I never liked the concept of petronis in movies because, like some kids, petronis. was like a grizzly bear and then another kid would be like a rat, you're telling me they're both going to do the same amount of protection, no that's impossible and you can't change your petronis, what if you became like a super one of shit that doesn't help you at all, oh my god, a dementa, okay. I know the perfect expecto petrum spell, what is it?
That's my Patronis. He's a break dancer from the early 2000s. I thought a Patronis was supposed to be an animal. I'm an animal on the dance floor bro, okay, I'm going to kill you now, Tron is, are you going to do something? Okay, let's go down one more level of the iceberg, the next level is the genuine Potterhead, watches movies several times a year. and they've read all the books, they straight up bring butterbeer to a pre-drink and have their own magic wand, they have at least one Harry Potter tattoo, they join their college's quidd team, this is where things start to get a bit more twisted once you get a Harry Potter Tattoo, I'm afraid there's no turning back and that's coming from someone with a Gooby tattoo.
Remember that the actor who voices Gooby was Robbie, the cold train, rest in peace, he also played Hagrid in the Harry Potter movie, so without realizing it. having a Harry Potter tattoo, Deathly Hollow tattoos are a staple obviously that design lends itself to a tattoo and I feel like JK Ring knew that when he was cooking up that design, I'm going to create a design that's very simple but some Harry Potter tattoos are a little more questionable, like this Harry Potter full leg piece. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you shouldn't go out on a limb there, okay LD, I also found a Harry Potter forehead tattoo. of the number seven with Harry Potter's face on the number, an absolutely insane tattoo to get it is called a forehead, not seven, the head must be a Hufflepuff.
I guess the number seven was made because that's how many books there are, but dude, can you imagine if JK rling surprise released an eighth book that this person would be, but I think the most questionable Harry Potter tattoo is the tattoo of the dark mark for those of you who don't know there is a group of evil wizards who follow Lord Voldemort and are called The goal of the Death Eaters is to create a pure blood magical ethnic state and kill anyone who is not pure blood. All of these Death Eaters have a dark mark burned into their forearms to show their allegiance to this genocide and people in real life become that dark. brand tattooed what and look you can say it's just fiction all you want but the message remains the same it's a genocide it represents a genocide if someone has a SW a tattoo they're not going to be like no, I just like the movie and glorious bastard Obviously, I'm not saying that anyone with a dark mark tattooed on them is a Nazi, but of all the Harry Potter things to get tattooed, that's the one to get.
I'm looking at you again, but the last line of this. The level I want to talk about is the university quidd team because I had no idea this was real and in the Harry Potter series there is a popular sport called quidd where everyone flies on broomsticks and the chasers try to throw the quaffle across of the hoops and the goalie tries to block the quaffle from going into the hoops and all the time there are these hitters trying to keep away the ludgers who are flying around trying to hit everyone and there are also these two Seekers who are trying to fly and catch a little ball , alittle magic ball called the Golden Snitch, because if they catch it, they win the game.
If someone said what I just said before about Harry Potter, they would be put in a straitjacket, CRA friend, but believe it or not, quidd not only. They exist in the Wizarding World, it's also here now in the Muggle world, the only difference is that they just run with brooms between their legs instead of flying and unlike the movie, they don't draw a crowd, okay, sorry, That was for one of the funniest moments. The thing about abandonment in real life is how they incorporate the golden snitch. I was really curious how they were going to do this because the golden snitch is a small, fast-moving flying magic ball, so I had no idea how they were going to do it.
Add that to the real life game, but that's how they do it. The searchers' job is to catch the snitch and the searchers have to get the tennis ball without touching the snitch. The runners have to go find me on campus. Dude, some poor bastard dresses all in gold and the Finders have to hunt him down and find him somewhere on campus and grab a tennis ball from the weird sock hanging from his groin and that's it how they win the game. might be the funniest thing I've ever seen in my life, just two guys holding a broomstick between their legs running around a college campus like, where is he, where's that son of a snitch?, are you trying to become a snitch?
How could you not? whatever you want to be right or maybe it is, I don't know, I wonder who was the best snitch of all time. You know, it's a sports documentary series that I would watch from start to finish, welcome back to revealing a gold. story where we learn about the trials and tribulations of Tyler, the best snitch Quidd has ever seen in the real-life world. Tyler was the best snitch I've ever seen. Nobody could find it. I've been a scout on my college's quidd team for 10 years, you've been in college for 10 years, yeah, in the four years Tyler played, they never found him, no one could find him on campus, not once , it's crazy, but sometimes I think it could actually be magical, every sport has its great Michael Jordan.
Tiger Woods Mike Tyson, but I think another name needs to be added to that list, Tyler, and in a Snitch A Golden Story exclusive, we've secured the first on-camera interview with the Golden Snitch himself, Tyler, how can you elude everyone quidd players? For all those years, oh man, it was so easy, all I had to do was go to the one place a Harry Potter fan will never go: a girl's room, okay, sorry, we'll go down to the third level of the iceberg, now this is where things are. really starting to improve Harry Potter exists in every aspect of their lives they have Harry Potter themed weddings Harry Potter clothing collections and even name their children after Harry Potter characters strangely obsessed with the actors from the movies they that go The Wizarding World theme Parking any chance of them getting this level of fandom, it's kind of like the bully Maguire Montage in Sam Ry Spider-Man 3, where Peter has fully accepted the Symbiote into his life and lets it dictate how behaves, how he acts and dances. that's what's happening to these

potterheads

, but instead of a black suit it's like a black robe and a Gryffindor scarf and dude, I don't know what Millennials have in fandoms, but you don't have to make your wedding based on what you like, you could have a wedding or two, I had two, mate, and none of them were Harry Potter and I know it's their wedding day, they can do whatever they want, I know who I am to judge well, but also at the same time let me hate a second guy if I get invited to a serious Harry Potter wedding.
I'm acting like a fool. I appear dressed as Moaning Myrtle and I will go throughout the ceremony. be in the back row as if I wasn't invited to a Harry Potter wedding or I could cast my Patronus at the reception also in the part where they have Harry Potter collections. I'm not saying it's bad, I'm crazy stupid. collection of a bunch of idiots, so I can't make fun of anyone in that sense, but naming your child after a Harry Potter character I can make fun of, mate, there are countless articles online giving examples of names of Harry Potter for babies.
What are we doing if you name your baby Lucius or Seus or Bunty? That's child abuse and I mean it. You're ruining that baby's life before he takes his first breath. Not even movie actors would do that. We were in the movies talking about the actors, this is a good time to talk about the other line on this level weirdly obsessed with movie actors, like how a Harry Potter fan legally changed his name to Lucius Maloy and sent him a letter to the actor. Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy, the son of Lucius Malfoy, and this Harry Potter fan who changed his name to Lucius, wanted Tom to change his name to Draco Maloy legally so that this new boy named Lucius Malfoy could legally adopt Tom Felton, that's very strange and so am I.
I don't think it works like that, if any child also has the last name Connor, can I legally adopt them? It's true? If so, I'm going to adopt each and every Connor until I've acquired them all, it'll be the biggest scam ever and I'll finally be the real Connor, but the last line I put on this level of the iceberg is They go to The Wizarding World theme park all the time and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios is actually what inspired me to do In this video, the Disney adults and the Harry Potter adults are cut from the same cloth , everyone takes things a little too far when it comes to theme parks and I have been to the wizarding world before going in 2012 and I had a great time, but let me tell you, there is no place on Earth less magical than Orlando, Florida, no matter how many Brits in capes they put in that park, nothing will take my mind off the fact that I have an ungodly amount of sweat in my cracked ass and balls in my balls miserable man I was so hot I was sweating I was thirsty Actually that It reminds me of talking about being thirsty.

Many thanks to Air Up for sponsoring this video. We were talking about Harry. The Potter theme on the attractions was fun aside from the fact that I got a bloody nose on the hippogriff attraction, but that's only because I was on Accutane at the time, so I'm not going to blame Harry Potter for those people on this one. level of the The iceberg will probably also go to King's Cross station in London on September 1, where a large crowd forms at 9 in the morning because that is when they announce that the train leaves for Hogwarts at the station.
The train doesn't actually leave because it doesn't exist because Hogwarts. It's in a real place, but holy crap, look how many damn people there are at that station, imagine you're rushing to catch the train because you have a very important job interview and when you find out they arrive at the station there are thousands of people. there and everyone is like looto airo or even worse friend, what if you were like a real wizard trying to get to Hogwarts but there were all these people on the way so you missed the train and you have to go rob your friends?
Dad's flying car and then you end up crashing the whip into the huge Willow, so what, what, sorry, back to the Harry Potter theme park real quick. I think Universal Studios is way better than any Disney park because they have Simpsons Land and I like to drink Duff. beer, but still dude, there are people who have had gorilla style weddings at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter when they're not allowed to do that there and there are also people who go to this park every day and you know, I'm starting to judge this . like crazy and then I see a video like this where there's someone crying the whole time that they're in the Harry Potter world because they're so happy and then I feel like maybe being a potterhead isn't so bad if a media outlet can bring it to someone so much happiness then maybe there's nothing wrong with it maybe we just need to accept some people oh wait sorry I just remembered the last level of the iceberg ignore what I was saying let's move on to the penultimate level we have Do you genuinely believe that Harry Potter it is real?
They write their own Harry Potter fanfictions. They ironically call people Muggles well into their 30s, but they still expect a Hogwarts acceptance letter in the mail. In fact, they enjoy the Fantastic Beast movies. Question Mark Question Mark Question Mark The Last Line is the most egregious of all because that movie sucks. I saw her on a plane. I have never wanted to skydive so much in my life and this level of the iceberg is the point of no return for potterheads. This is when the illusion consumes you completely. them and they really believe they are legitimate wizards like this, let's look at this Facebook post from Potter heads for Life International Harry Potter Day in memory of all those who died during the Battle of Hogwarts today is May 2, the day of the battle of Hogwarts the day Harry Ron and Hermion returned to Hogwarts and destroyed the horcruxes the day Harry finally defeated Voldemort the day we got to see true courage and sacrifice we will never forget all those who fought in the war and all those who died Fred Weasley nadora Tonks Remis Lupine Colin cevy severis Snape and many more let's raise our wands for those who fought and died remember May 2, 1998 and these next comments are great this is a fictional event please read another book and that is by Carl boom boom Carl boom no it's no Carl boom where did I get the boom boom straight from can't read I'm a Hufflepuff man we're dumb and then in response to Carl boom boom Nathan says Carl do you realize that the ministry of magic modified everyone the muggles memory so they don't remember this historical event, right, you realize that the ministry of magic erased your memory, but even though I tell you that they did it, it somehow negates any effect they had, I totally understand that you know, immersing yourself. in a media that you know as a form of escapism and stuff, but it's crazy to genuinely believe that Hogwarts exists.
I talked about this in my Most Absurd Lies on the Internet video, but someone posted a video saying that they actually received an acceptance letter. from Hogwarts and they're being 100% serious, like there are people who actually think Harry Potter is real and I don't think he's funny or cute on some level, I think it's harmful and you'll agree after you do it. read this I found a Reddit post on /h Harry Potter that's super messed up if it's real I hope it's not I hope they're pranking me but it's been here since our daughter was five and my wife and I started reading it.
In the Harry Potter books we have told her that she is a witch and that the wizarding world is real. She is almost eight years old and as her questions have grown deeper, we have continued to build the illusion with more details about our family genealogy and her connection to the characters in the book. stories about the times we used magic and the life and moral lessons we learned about it. She has processed many difficult topics like racism, climate change, and even the Corona virus through this lens before other parents judge or lecture. We know it's gaslighting and that eventually she.
All of that will eventually make her feel disappointed and she will have trust issues with us when she knows the truth, we justify it by saying thatWe are adding magic to her childhood and giving her motivation to reach her full magical potential as she needs to study hard to be accepted. At Hogwarts we have asked serious questions of their teachers and they think it is more amazing and creative than harmful at worst. My opinion is that it is analogous to children being raised to believe that traditional religious stories are true and that when the truth arrives it will teach them to ask critical questions and not accept everything they hear or read at face value just an absolutely diabolical upbringing this It's literally a villain origin story for this kid that's how the Voldermorts are created when this kid actually finds out that magic isn't real They'll be so angry and betrayed that they'll feel and then nothing will happen because magic isn't real, too to compare it to religion and frame it as a strange lesson in never taking things literally. friend, what a terrible lesson for your son, you are stupid for believing us to be your parents, you should never believe a word we tell you, you got it, we love you, this is like a modern version of Plato's allegory of the cave, but instead of an allegory, it's just someone's life, it's like being the last kid to believe in Santa, but a million times worse, I feel like this could escalate to something really dangerous, hey dad, up here, take a look look, oh my god, what are you doing up there? down right now no, it's okay dad, I'm going to fly just like you told me here we go hey wo wo wo no oh my god I can't look oh my god I could see everything from up here oh my god you're flying you're really flying you're a magician no, I think I died when I hit the ground, I'm going to heaven, yeah, bye, looks like I'm going to be in the dog house and I think the potterheads on this level also take their Hogwarts houses too seriously.
I've seen a lot of posts where people put their Hogwarts house on their Tinder and hinge bios, which I don't know what would make you do that, but I also found a YouTube video titled These Harry Potter YouTubers Have Something to Say When I Watched that I was like a damn friend. this is going to be very blunt this is going to be a serious thing to recover let's see what they have to say one thing that really bothers me about being in slivering is that people think we're all bad just because we're in slivering doesn't make us bad people the mascot of our house is a flying eagle it's not a crow to be called a fake fan for being in griffindor because people always assume you're in Gryffindor house because Harry Ron and Herione are in Gryffindor I think in other houses they are favorites over hu Beth because If you are hu then you are weak or you cannot do this or that.
One thing that really bothers me is when I say I'm in the chipper house, people think that. means I'm in Voldemort's house, the stereotypical image of us is to ask for more homework, who even asks for more homework. Huffle bubs are usually the butt of jokes. I don't think anyone has heard more jokes about any other house in Huffle B. we are so misunderstood and it drives me crazy dude, none of that is real, it's so fun dude, making an emotional video where everyone likes to defend themselves against people who criticize the arbitrary labels they've given themselves, guys, like they're in a Hogwarts house is that sad, confusing, and misrepresenting of who you are, stop stopping labeling yourself as that guy.
Gryffindors are not only brave and brave, we are also cool and have a lot of money, potters at this level of the iceberg will do that. do anything to insert yourself into the Harry Potter universe and what is the best way to make that fanfiction. I want to start by saying that there is nothing wrong with writing fanfiction; There are many great fanfictions that are comparable to the source material in terms of quality, such as a fanfiction titled All the Young Dudes fanfiction set in the Harry Potter universe that is over 500,000 words long and has also created a dedicated fanbase of its own. in the older characters of the series who lives as a young adult with any fandom.
There are good fanfictions and there are questionable fanfictions, guys. I could have made a whole video strictly on Harry Potter fanfiction, but I chose one for a quick look. I found a short story called Harry Potter and the Fallen Towers, uh, it takes place. on September 11, 2001 and it's about Hermione rushing to New York to save Ron when she finds out about the 911 attacks. I'll read some excerpts on September 11, 2001 just as she was putting a piece of bread in the toaster, the news anchor voice. On television she suddenly made her cup drop, and it shattered at her feet.
We just received breaking news from the US. Just moments ago Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. The plane had left Portland Maine and was scheduled. landing in Boston Massachusetts American sources say that this sudden event could be a terrorist attack, so many thoughts of hers run through her head, making her knees weak and forcing her to sit in the nearest chair. Ron was in New York, she had told him. That he would be underground most of the time, but not all the time, why hadn't he asked for more information? What if Ron had been on the surface when the plane crashed?
What if for some reason he had been in the North Tower when the spoiler occurred? alert they both escaped the collapse of the Twin Towers but here's another little paragraph September 11, 2001 9:59 a.m. So why were you near the World Trade Center? She asked Heran weekly his anguish-filled eyes searching her well. We've planted some spies all over the city. on the ground to see if they could find where the Death Eaters were a few days ago, one of them came back and reported that he had seen some Death Eaters in an alley next to the Twin Towers when the first plane hit.
I was already on the ground, but shortly after the second impact of the plane I saw you outside the South Tower. I had no idea why you would be here or if it was even possible for you to be here, but I knew it was you even from behind, okay buddy, this is cool, okay, I know. They just announced that they are rebooting the Harry Potter series as a television show. Include this. I don't want to. I need a whole movie about Harry Ron and Hermione tracking down the people responsible for the 9/11 attacks. The movie Harry is like Osama Ben Laden holy man think of all the Fred and George TN jokes they could make in it too please JK rling include we will forgive you if you do it we won't but do it everyone ways, okay?
Holy cow we've covered a lot of ground so far and I appreciate you looking at me if you're still here and now it's time to talk about the final level of the Potterhead iceberg and I know what you're thinking we just talked about a Harry Potter fanfiction 911 can get crazier than that, yes, yes, in this final level I put three words: Snape's handcuffs change Draco's talk. These are three different subc communities within the Harry Potter fandom that are really crazy to me and I seriously can't believe it. that are real first Snape with strange aons made a great in-depth video about this community, so if you want to go deeper into that community specifically, check out that video after this video, but here's a definition of Snape's handcuffs as well.
Known as Snaps, they are a group of women in the Harry Potter fandom who believe they channel Sous Snape, allowing his Spirit to inhabit his body and speaking to him. They maintain romantic relationships with him and see him as a vital spiritual guide to his daily life. They practice Snapeism as a new religious movement centered on Snape. They believe that Snape is not simply a character from the Harry Potter books but an omniscient and immortal deity and, in fact, they believe that the books were written because JK Rowling was channeling the serpent. I must say Snape.
The wife community doesn't really exist anymore, at least not publicly. They were most active in 2006 on Live Journal, but these middle-aged women were taking Photoshop photos with Professor Snape and all taking turns talking to him and even going as far as worshiping him as a divine being Professor Snake as the instructor of potions from the books, Snape's wives also believe that Snape was always looking out for them. Here is a small excerpt from the live diary of one of Snape's wives about her encounters with Snape in a dramatic way. I say she took a hair band from him and then gave it back to him.
Rose says that she threw her hair band on the floor and when she couldn't locate it later she realized that my darling was teaching me not to throw. Thank you honey, yes you lost something and then you found it. Again it must have been a snake, this is a very interesting way to live life, when something remotely strange happens to you you automatically assume it is the work of some all-powerful otherworldly entity that has control over everything. Oh wait, sorry, a lot of people live their lives. That way, but who knows, miracles can happen, maybe everything good that has happened to us throughout all of history is because we see Snape from the Harry po franchise.
Here is another example. Snape seems to be particularly useful during robberies. One of Tanya's unspecified friends received help. by him in that case she was being robbed and he pushed her down and made the lights go out, she said she clearly heard his voice telling her to stay downstairs, unfortunately Tanya was robbed at work when she didn't follow Snap's advice not to open. the door late at night in a luckier scenario Tanya was saved by Snape when she was home alone in the early hours of the morning, she heard him shout girl, get up and get a knife now.
I love imagining Snape as a slightly annoying drag queen. girl, get up and grab a knife now and don't do it, but apparently Snape also made his presence known in the physical world quite often. Snape makes his presence in the physical world known in a variety of subtle ways, including through the weather on January 9. Tanya looked at her window after Snape ordered her to. She saw a fog-shaped S shape on the glass. She later found out that Snap's birthday is January 9. Strange shapes continued to appear in unexpected places after this event, for example in a vivid account on March 15, 2008, Tanya conveyed her excitement about the day she spent in Snap's presence.
She received a variety of signals from him, such as a thread from her carpet forming the letter s. Conita looked out the window of a bus. On a cloud almost in the sky. and she saw an S formation there too she kept looking at the clouds until they disappeared which made her miss her stop by some distance mate if a bunch of s are me it means Snape is close these women would have been scared if they had seen my third grade. Notebook, I drew that cool look a million times a day, mate, imagine yourself as Snape's wife going to the zoo and seeing a snake enclosure, oh cool, a python, oh my god, that's as weird as starting a religion based on fiction. character uh, it's not the first time it's been done so you know, I can't really make fun of it I guess and it seemed to bring a lot of joy to these women, so I've officially become, okay, now I'm Snape's husband.
You hear that Snape, I have a Half-Blood Prince here for you brother, okay, the next section of the final level is Changing. I'm not going to spend a lot of time on this because I already did a whole podcast episode about this and I also talked about it in my Most Absurd Lies on the Internet video, but tldr there are people who claim to have the ability to shift to a reality where Hogwarts is real and live their lives as Hogwarts students they often spend months at a time in their alternate reality if you're there for that long I don't think it changes anymore okay change more like caps lock why would you change for months when you just you could press caps lock and they're also covering up and the last part of the The iceberg we're going to talk about is a little community on Tik Tok called Draco Talk and this community highlights the biggest problem I've seen with the fandom.
Draco Talk is a community of people who dress up as Draco Malfoy or thirst for the character. by Draco Malfoy, you know, some are weird, some are embarrassing, but some are just terrible, Father, how about that, oh, super funny thing to say when you're dressed in a maid outfit? I'm going to tell my dad, also here's this great video of what it's like to be in a seven year relationship with Draco Malfoy, yay, it seems like he doesn't like you that much, women don't settle, okay, wait until Find a man who takes 5 years to hold your hand and look, you can do it. whatever you want on Tik Tok, you can create any content you want but my problem is with the thirst trap edits, more specifically my problem is with the adults on Tik Tok thirsting for a character who is 17 years old oh god mine, some of In these videos, Draco Malfoy's character is like 13 years old and there are 20-year-old people making romantic edits of them.
What don't they do? Obviously, Askaban is going to Askaban and it's not just with Draco Malfoy, mate, his name is. Harry,no Harry, it's okay, Harry Potter is a little boy, what are you doing mate, what's next, a Tommy Pickles thirst trap, you know, strip teas like this is weird right?, this is a series of fantasy novels for children. What's going on? I know this is very small. percentage of the fandom but it's still happening and it's disgusting, these characters shouldn't be sexualized at all but it happens more than it should. I like this Reddit exchange for example, like Snam Shipper this scene is pure gold, also Snam Shipper if you didn't.
Understand that it's Snape and Hermione in the sixth book, Hermione is 16 and in the same book Snape is 38, bro, what the hell, mate? At least now we know what the s that was shown to all of Snape's wives means, okay, that concludes it, my potterhead. Iceberg, but it would feel bad to end this video without hearing what it's like to be a potterhead from a real potterhead. I could hear it from the hippogriff's mouth. I reached out to a bunch of Harry Potter content creators and almost all of them rejected or just didn't respond, which is fine, you know they're probably busy sweating their butts off in Orlando, Florida, but the more I thought about it, the more I figured that the potter boss i spoke to should be a fan who was trying to make harry potter more inclusive and lgbtq plus friendly and in my research i found a non-profit fan-made web series called the rise of order that puts a the lgbtqi plus community at the forefront.
I contacted his team and connected with Ash. the actor who plays young Remis Lopin in the film, so here's my interview with a potterhead, enjoy, I'm fine, welcome everyone to Hogwarts radio. We are waiting for our today's guest in the studio, Ash, to appear in this magical frame and also an announcement. I've been told to tell the owner of a brown Nimbus 2000 that his broom is currently being towed and by towed I mean it's turned into a toad so I'm sorry oh it looks like our guest is here ok wow . It seems that our Guest Ash is materializing right in front of us.
Hello, you have to do that with your hands for the spell to work. Otherwise, some say that wizards need wands. I just need jazz hands. Yes, you have 10 little ones. wands I have 10 small wands thank you very much for coming and talking to me. I've been talking around here for a while about potterheads without getting a good insider opinion, so I appreciate that. Just introduce yourself real quick. I'm Ash and I play Remis Lupine in The Rise of the Order, which is a Marauders movie. I don't know if you've talked about it yet, but Marauders is like a little subsection. like Potterheads, but it's also a bit like they're separate, so it's more of the pre-Harry Potter generation.
It's good, awesome. We'll talk about that a little later. Ash, could you describe yourself as a Potter head? I think I definitely used to say Potterhead more, now I just say I'm a Marauders fan, but I definitely like it. I love the world of Harry Potter, so that fits the criteria. So what was it about the Harry Potter franchise that was originally, as you know, appealing? For you, I think obviously Harry Potter has been something that was there since my childhood and it was just this magical world, and it was one of the first book series that I read and I just fell in love, like most people do, with Harry.
Potter. Just, um, you can kind of see yourself there, you know, as I grew up. The reason I stuck with this magical world is because, um, I found places in the fandom that I can watch. more representation other than just this tight little thing that you find in the actual books, so yeah, obviously what I wanted to touch on is pretty crazy because I feel like now it's like saying in the movies and the books that you can't. say Voldemort like you couldn't say his name and now I feel like it's become like you can't say JK rling anymore like I no one wants to, she's become no one wants to talk about the devil, she's become the villain with all of her like Turf transphobic it's like you know she's really become.
I feel like it's become really strange and difficult for Harry Potter fans. Do you think there's a way for people to like being a Potter head nowadays? which means JK rling, yeah, I definitely think I definitely think, although I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I wasted, I was casting a spell to whisper about you, I think it really depends on, uh, you have to do it right, you can't, you can't simply. ignore it, you can't just pretend there's no story behind JK filming and that's actually something that happens nowadays, is that she's actively against trans people and supports anti-trans groups and stuff, like that which I think is not something that could be ignored, but there is a correct way to do it.
I make it clear that I don't support her views, but it's not just that I don't support her views, I don't support her as well as MoneyWise. I don't fund anything that I know will go into her pockets and I just make sure that if you have a platform where you participate in Harry Potter related things, you make it clear that you don't support those views, okay? and I guess it's true, it's like how big Harry Potter has become. I guess it's very easy to find people who make their own merchandise like Harry Potter too and it's probably better than the official one anyway, exactly like supporting the small businesses they like.
Having your own merchandise that is unofficial is cool and that's what I personally do. I want to mention again what you said before, you're playing, you're playing, you're playing, young Remis, young Remis, in a series called The Rise of the. order mm can we talk about that for a moment, what is the overall goal of that project, yeah, so the increase in order is pretty much the main goal is to show this world of Harry Potter with the representation that we have. I didn't get to see it as kids, so we have a diverse range of cast, like uh, in terms of lgbtq specs, different ethnicities, it's just a very wide range of cast where we play characters that we wish we could have seen.
When we were kids, it was also a non-profit because obviously if it was, we'd have to give money to JK Rowling, so we're very vocally against her views. We have it all on our website and it is. Yeah, great, do you still have a release date in mind? Or yes, I think it will be next year. At some point we expect early next year, like the first quarter, but I'm not sure exactly yet, the release date is not. okay and that will be like on YouTube or like on the website or on YouTube, okay, awesome, follow them, review, support, the money is not going to JK Ash.
Thank you again for taking the time to talk to me and um if there's anything final. message you want to give to Hogwarts radio because that's what I said at the beginning, that's where we are, just be yourself and don't let the people who are in positions of power because of the content they've created don't let them define you, you break away from that and live your truth, hell yeah I know it was deep, thanks again. Ash, bye. Oh yeah, there you go, holy shit, okay, looks like someone may have cast a haircut spell on me, well folks, that concludes it. our deep dive into potterheads while this video is I feel like it could have easily been twice as long trust me I really tried to condense it into the most interesting things I found in conclusion I think the Harry Potter fandom is in a really interesting place right now , the main film series has been made for over 10 years and any attempt to make a new film in the Harry Potter franchise has been a failure, all combined with the fact that the author is a proud trans, honestly.
I think we've seen the peak of fandom and I think when it comes to separating the art from the artist, like Ash said, there are ways to still be a potterhead without supporting JK Rowling and after talking to Ash and learning about, you know. Projects like The Rise of the Order made me feel good about the future in general. This group of young people had a great love for this franchise and they no longer felt safe or accepted, so they were like that. do it ourselves, we do it, we live it, that sucks and that's a badass and I think it's like an extra slap in the face to JK rling because it's literally a plot from one of the Harry Potter novels in the Order of the Phoenix that everyone they like. control the students and all their opinions are being ignored and invalidated, so all the students say we will do it ourselves.
It sucks and it's very strange because obviously I can't deny the positive effect that the Harry Potter franchise had. my life growing up and although it is difficult to navigate being a potterhead today, it will never be as difficult as navigating King's Cross Station on September 1st, but all joking aside, potterheads can seem embarrassing or strange from the perspective of a strange, but if you try to empathize with them. and if you look hard enough, you might see the letter s, which means Snape is looking out for you, turn to page 394. Okay, thank you very much for watching this video.
