can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda

and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind

and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move

Sometimes I get huffy about tumblr but then I see that 260,000 people got the same kind of chills I did reading this…

My disappointment in Movie!Hermione comes from the fact that Jo literally handed the film writers a wonderfully written, multi-faceted, and incredibly interesting character on a silver platter and they completely rebuffed her. Hermione in the books is bossy, she nit-picks, she’s protective, she’s studious to the point of being obsessive, she is spiteful, she is sneaky, and she is terrified of rejection. Hermione in the films is basically supergirl who skates by on other character’s lines and is portrayed as the sole reason Harry made it to the end (“We wouldn’t last two days without her”. Awesome, except I was under the impression it was literally a group effort, not just Hermione carrying all the weight around on her super muscly Schwarzenegger shoulders.) They took her and polished her until she was nearly unrecognizable to me. Except they didn’t need to! Hermione was already great the way she was written! Give me tattletale Hermione who gets Harry’s Firebolt confiscated because she’s worried it could be dangerous. Give me activist Hermione who starts S.P.E.W because she has a saviour complex. Give me underhanded Hermione who bewitches a piece of parchment to permanently scar anyone who snitches about the DA. Give me trembling Hermione who sits in Ron’s room and cries while explaining she modified her parents’ memories and may never see them again. Because THAT Hermione-that Hermione is important. Because she was proof you can be flawed and still be considered valuable and a good person who deserves the world. And I don’t get that from the Hermione in the films. At all.

Slytherin wasn’t the only founder to leave a concealed chamber at Hogwarts— before her death, Helga Huffelpuff created a secret room which would help all students, regardless of house affiliation or purity of blood. It’s been called many things throughout the centuries; today it’s known as the Room of Requirement.
