Ron always just fucking knows

If you remember, Ron was always weirdly good with Divination. Whenever he’d joke about a possible outcome, it would eventually happen in some roundabout way!

#AU where Ron is actually a great prophet but no one fucking knows it #and when they find out#Ron is torn between being pissed as hell and thinking it’s hilarious

There’s actually a whole point about this in these Harry Potter analysis books I used to read obsessively. Two of their cardinal rules of HP foreshadowing are “Hermione is always right, except when she’s emotional” and “Ron is always wrong, except when he’s joking”. This actually plays out pretty frequently in the series if you look for it!

I get very emotional when I think about this scene. If you notice, before Ron rescue Hermione, she seems very apathetic, without any emotion. Probably hopeless and waiting for death. Then she hears his voice. His voice. The love of her life. And her eyes instantly comes to life. It’s beautiful.

This post makes me cry everytime man

may the wolves forget your name.: Ron is racist - and that’s great

colinfirth:

Ron Weasley’s character is consciously written as somewhat racist. Not as racist as Malfoy, of course - he doesn’t scoff at mudbloods and halfbloods, and he doesn’t see himself as superior at all. Still, he unquestionably accepts the inferior position of house elves (they love serving), when he finds out that Lupin’s werewolf his reaction is not only scared but also disgusted (Don’t touch me!) and he is clearly very uncomfortable finding out that Hagrid is half-giant (giants are wild and savage).

And this is brilliant. Because it demonstrates that racism isn’t only present in clearly malicious and evil people, in the Malfoys and Blacks - it’s also there in warm, kind, funny people who just happened to learn some pretty toxic things growing up in a pretty toxic society. And they can unlearn them too, with some time and effort. Ron eventually accepts Hagrid’s parentage, lets Lupin bandage his leg and in the final battle, he worries about the safety of the house elves.

Some people are prejudiced because they are evil, and some people are prejudiced because they don’t know better yet. And those people can learn better, and become better people. And that’s an important lesson. The lesson taught about discrimination shouldn’t be “only evil people do it”, because then all readers will assume it doesn’t apply to them. Instead old JK teaches us “you too are probably doing it, and you should do stop ASAP”. 

#i have a lot of feelings about ron man #and most of them are incoherent like #he’s my second favourite male character after neville and i’m big on neville sure but ron is a close second #seriously though think about it #ron is a stellar example of satisfying character development #this post notwithstanding because it’s already perfect so i’m in no way disregarding it dont get me wrong #but we were cheated out of a good wee storyline in order of the phoenix with ron and hermione becoming prefects i think #with harrys jealousy and ron getting the chance to stand up and be proud of himself with his family in a way he hadn’t before #ron was rahter overshadowed by his siblings and now he had been made prefect of all things #and i was proud of him and i was proud of him when he made keeper #and i was so fucking happy that he came back in deathly hallows after storming out of the tent #sure he fucks up but it takes a great deal of courage to admit to your mistakes and try to fix them #and i love him for realising this and finding his way back to harry and hermione where he belonged #and the scene with the locket too was so intense and just highlighted what ron really thought of himself #how he felt inferior #how he considered himself the second choice and resented being lost in his family #like between his siblings achievements and having harry potter as a best friend there was obviously a lot of doubt on rons part regarding hi #s self worth #and i think he really overcame that in a big way and even the scene in DH when he suggests the basilisk fangs and hermione’s like ‘damn son’ #and yeah man i was just rooting for him the entire time man #and as far as characters go he holds a special place in my timy grinch heart #ron weasley king of the bling #prince of breakfast and bitchfaces and champion of character development

Yes Ron cover your boobs because you’re a girl

He’s also wearing a shirt

Guys… he lived with the goddamn Twins for YEARS, that’s probably an instinctive ‘Please don’t throw an experimental potion or giant spider on me’ reaction…

…at least he’ll never have that problem again…

HOW DID OUMAKE ME LAYUGH AND THEN FEEL LIKE ANN EMPTY PART OF THE DEEPSEST SPACEIN 0.FUCK YOU SECONDS??!!!

Beacause Potterheads are learning from the Spn fandom.
