fleur delacour is so important i can’t even put it into words
badass girl whose “most precious” was her sister, who despite what anyone might think of her (cough molly cough ron cough hermione cough) looks past any aesthetic unpleasantries because she is completely and irrevocably in love with bill, who willingly risks her life for harry (the seven harrys, anyone???), who manages to create a spot of brightness in the middle of war (wedding!!!), who is feminine and badass at the same time, who opens her home to an entitled goblin and multiple refugees/runaways, who doesn’t sacrifice one bit of her integrity or character despite the looming threat of war
Just imagine though in care of magical creatures class one day Hagrid is about to lead a bunch of students to see some new beastie and he goes “Are ya ready kids?”
and suddenly a few muggleborns in the class scream at the top of their lungs “AYE AYE CAPTAIN!!!” and half the class is on the ground laughing while Hagrid and all the pureblood kids just stare totally bewildered
you just don’t plan for something like this
When Lily Evans told James Potter that she wouldn’t go out with him because he was a bully, he stopped bullying people and redeemed himself. When Lily told Severus Snape that she wouldn’t go out with him because he called her a racial slur, he went on to join a racist terrorist group.
Conclusion: James Potter handled rejection much better than Severus Snape does.

sometimes i see people calling ginny weasley a mary sue, and i mean … okay, i’m willing to consider the possibility, let’s look at it rationally
- she’s confident
- pureblood but would never discriminate
- damn good quidditch player
- powerful spellcaster
- loyal and brave
- fiery/hotheaded personality
- always stands up for what she believes in
yeah wow what a mary sue, i guess people were right about -
- wait hang on
- was that —
- oh right
- james potter
Dudes fill book after book with ridiculously over the top male power fantasies and wish fulfillment and then whenever anyone writes a female character that is the least bit competent, intelligent, or confident: brace yourself for the endless wails of “MARY SUEEE!”.
