i’m pretty sure this has been completely jossed by whatever jkr has said about them in interviews, but i don’t really care. i’m just. really attached to the headcanon that at least one of dudley’s kids would be magic.
WOULD HERMIONE TAKE RON’S LAST NAME OR WOULD SHE KEEP HER MAIDEN NAME RED ALERT THIS IS REALLY DISTRACTING
Tbqh I could happily read an entire book that was filled with nothing but the bios (e.g. family makeup, blood status, upbringing, House, boggart, patronus, etc.) and life stories of fanmade Hogwarts students, especially if most of those students didn’t completely fit into Harry Potter’s formula of male+white+straight+cis+able-bodied+Christian. Like, I’m seriously just fascinated with how kids of different backgrounds would work to make Hogwarts a home for themselves when in all truth the school wasn’t really designed with people like them in mind. It’s my favorite HP thing to find on Tumblr.
(This is apropos of nothing, but I just realized that Harry Potter had had Hedwig for the same amount of time and during the same period of life that I had had my cat Edgar—we both found our pets around the beginning of the school year after our eleventh birthdays, and we both lost them around the beginning of the school year after our seventeenth birthdays.)
