haven’t considered how airport x-ray scans will affect unexposed film hm hmmm
So we know it’s JK’s headcanon that Dudley has a magical child, right? Imagine his kid starting to show signs of magic and Dudley remembering all the odd things that used to happen around Harry. Imagine his kid coming home from Hogwarts and being all, “WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME UNCLE HARRY WAS FAMOUS?” Imagine Dudley reading up on Harry and finding out about all the stuff he did and all the things that happened to him and struggling to grasp how his scrawny, speccy cousin saved the wizarding world. Imagine Dudley, white-faced with terror at his first big family get-together with Harry, Hermione and all the remaining Weasleys. Imagine Mrs Weasley being decidedly cool towards him until he eats fifth helpings of everything she cooks and telling her that she’s the best cook he’s ever met. Imagine Dudley meeting Fleur. Imagine the others embarrassing Harry by telling Dudley stories about him. Imagine Dudley and Harry going down the pub together for beers. Imagine Harry still calling him Big D. Imagine Dudley cheerfully never dieting ever again and being fat and happy forever THE END.
This makes me absurdly happy
did they just made me happy about DUDLEY
I have thought about this before. I imagined Dudley breaking down and sending Harry a letter somehow or other. Like maybe he goes to all the local nature preserves and quietly talks to all the owls until one agrees to take his letter. And he tells Harry his small daughter made their TV only play old reruns of the Vicar of Dibley for a month and she somehow turned every plate of vegetables into a pudding. And so he’s sorry to ask, but he needs help. His wife is at her wit’s end. Please help.
My heart swells and hurts at the same time.

how did you get free books?
there’s a Slovenian facebook group called Knjigobežnice (the initial point was you leave a book somewhere in a public place and publish its location in the group and whoever gets there first gets it, but now they put out small boxes that work using the “leave a book, take a book” rule), where someone posted if anyone is interested in French books, and i said yes (as well as some other people) and they said okay i’ll bring them to you later today, so they did and i even got to choose (i also got one in English)
in the past few days i
- got a weird splotchy sunburn over a large part of my back,
- drove for 4 hours over a distance that usually takes like 20 minutes (well, I say drove … mostly waited),
- ate small fish that were caught from a sail boat when it was docked at the marina and haven’t died yet,
- bought tickets to amsterdam four days before the flight,
- and got 4 free books from an internet stranger
