13 Things You'll Only Understand if Harry Potter Is Your Everything

Posted -

We all love Harry Potter, but only some of us are true series-reading, movie-watching, still-waiting-for-our-Hogwarts-letter type of fans. For the latter, Harry Potter will live on forever and J.K. Rowling will always have a special place in your heart. Do you think you qualify as a Harry Potter enthusiast? Check out below for all of the things that you will only understand if Harry Potter is your everything:

Hearing the phrase "you know who" and immediately thinking about Voldemort

You just can't help it.

The importance of clearing your schedule when a Harry Potter movie marathon is on TV

Thank you, Freeform.

Rest in peace, Alan Rickman. 

Harry and Ginny were destined from the beginning

Ron and Hermione, too. 

Dudley Dursley changed by the end of the series—at least, a little bit

By the end of the books, that is. However, the redeeming moment was cut from the movie (and we kind of wish it wasn't). 

Voldemort is almost a direct descendant of Salazar Slytherin

And incest was big in his family.

S.P.E.W. 

It helped save magical creatures and was the REAL reason behind Ron and Hermione's first kiss.

The nerdy guy always deserves a chance

Neville Longbottom: the only proof you will ever need.

Peter Pettigrew made it far too long into the series

But, we will try not to question it.

Non-magical people can be born into magical families

And they are usually upset about it—hello, Filch? No wonder he is so grumpy all the time.

The movies completely fail to explain the Half-Blood Prince

The details of Snape and his past are worth more than 10 minutes at the end of the sixth film.

The movies completely fail to explain a lot of things...

St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies, Animagi, the Sphinx and so much more—honestly, people. Just read the damn books.
