Short rant today, sorry.
J.K. Rowling is basically my hero and role model, along with a few other amazing humans, but man, she’s just dabom.com! Especially considering her newest masterpiece, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. That movie touched my heart and was probs one of the best parts of 2016, let’s be honest. The storyline was simple enough, but maybe that’s just me because I did some reading on the movie on pottermore.com beforehand. The whole wizarding world is so much bigger than we think. America is getting busier in the muggle, or nomaj world, along with the magical world. World War Two is taking place at the same time that the century’s darkest wizard is rising: Grindelwald. I think that the whole thing will obscurials is much deeper than anyone really realizes after seeing the movie. We know from the seventh Harry Potter book that Dumbledore’s little sister, Ariana, is beaten up by some stupid muggle boys at the age of seven, and that it makes her unstable. Or, to put it in Dumbledore’s words, her magic became inward and explosive. Sound familar??
We also know that Grindelwald and Dumbledore were #goals back in the day. They were always together and making a plan to wipe out muggles “for the greater good.” Yeah…Dumbledore may be a muggle lover now, but he wasn’t all that great as a teen. Grindelwald, Albus, and Aberforth (Ablus’ younger brother) got in a fight one day, which ended up in a duel that killed Ariana. So, we know that Ariana, the OBSCURIAL, was known by Grindelwald himself!! Which means he must have known how to manipulate poor Credence in FB through research with Ariana.
So there you have it. (told you this one was going to be short)
