21 Times "Harry Potter" Took Things Too Freaking Far
This shit has scarred us for life.
1. "Fred. Weasley. Fred. Fucking. Weasley. YOU DON'T DO THAT TO TWINS. YOU JUST DON'T."
2. Ron having a pet rat who was actually an adult man, and who watched him doing all sorts of private stuff.
3. "When Hedwig was killed. What kind of deranged author murders a beautiful, innocent owl?"
4. "When Bellatrix full-out tortured Hermione and carved 'mudblood' into her skin":
5. "Two words: Nagini + Bagshot. If we’re talking fucked up, that HAS to be the one. That nasty-ass snake literally inhabited an old lady’s DEAD BODY for days, maybe weeks at a time."
6. When Tonks and Lupin both died RIGHT AFTER THEIR KID WAS BORN, leaving him an orphan.
7. "When Hermione deleted her parents' memories of her to protect them from Voldemort and from the pain her death would cause them if they lost in the war."
8. Snape's years of mental and verbal abuse against very young children, especially Neville.
9. "Quirrell having Voldemort ATTACHED TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD."
10. "Umbridge being carried off by the centaurs. Anyone with any classical knowledge knows that centaurs are infamous for being violent rapists."
11. "Dumbledore leaving baby Harry on the doorstep to his aunt and uncle's house knowing they were going to abuse him."
12. "When Umbridge punishes Harry by having him carve words into his hand."
13. "Dumbledore's death. I knew it was coming, but it happened like BLAM!"
14. "When Amos Diggory runs to Cedric's dead body WAILING 'That's my booooy!'"
15. Colin Creevey dying in the Battle of Hogwarts.
16. "Draco being forced to torture Ollivander or he'd be tortured himself by Voldemort. Somehow that's what I find the most disturbing in the whole story."
17. "The fact that there's a ghost of a murdered child living in the bathroom and no one bothers to do anything about it."
18. "Sirius dying after telling Harry that they are finally going to be a family. #Notfair."
19. "I'll make this easy: It's Neville's parents. The gum wrapper, the backstory, Neville's freakout with the spider in Moody's class. They deserve their time in the spotlight."
20. "The death of Charity Burbage the Muggle Studies professor."
21. "Anyone who says anything except Dobby's death is a liar."
