21 times Tumblr made our heads spin with wacky Harry Potter fan theories

Draco a werewolf?! Okay, then…

Here at MP!, we put a lot of thought in to ‘Harry Potter’. We dedicate a worrying amount of time writing our own version of the Marauders stories in our head as JK refuses to. Wondering whether we’d survive the Battle of Hogwarts or just how much like Hermione we really are (we still, and always will, want to be Hermione).

But we’ve got nothin’ on Tumblr. We bow down to how much they remember from the books. We’d love to know how many times they’ve read them…

Seriously. The connections these Potterheads make seem ridiculous at first, but them BAM. Omg, it makes so much sense!

1. Could it be?!

Though we’re not entirely convinced that Ron is a Hufflepuff. He’s a Gryffindor through and through in our eyes.

2. OMG.

How did we not see that??

3. One for the Dramione shippers. (aka ALL OF US)

This one only works for the movies, but we’re totally taking it as canon. We’ll fight you.

4. Woah. That is actually, properly possible…

Makes sense, right? We ALL saw the effect the horcruxes had on the Golden Trio in ‘Deathly Hallows’.

5. Okay, this one might cause a tear or two. Soz. 

Queen JK even approves of this one.

6. CUTE.

It totally makes our heart smile that Crookshanks may have made his way make to his family.

7. WHAT.

It does make sense, though.

8. Okay, this one is actually genius. Could JK be Rita Skeeter?

We love it!

9. This is another JK/Rita Skeeter one with a few little differences.

We’re just totally loving this theory.

10. And another one that we can’t believe we missed…

Siriusly. So obvious.

11. We figured the position was cursed, but actually cursed?

12. Oh, Weasleys, you hurt our heart.

COVER REVEAL: Terry Pratchett’s books just got an insane new look and you’ll go all heart eyes

QUIZ: Which Tri-Wizard champion are you?

13. That Trelawney is a WAY better seer than she seems.

14. KNEW IT. 

We should have been at Hogwarts, gosh darnit!

15. Just how we like it! Potter 4ever.

16. When Disney meets Potter. We like.

(And we’re gonna go re-watch ‘Mary Poppins’ now, brb)

17. And now we’re sobbing. Thanks doctor-potter-lock.

18. Right. They’re unnervingly similar. Sold.


Totally knew it all along.

20. Gross. So gross. 

But apparently JK’s editor threw up when JK told them that crucial final step so…

21. Intriguing…
