Q:
on this hp people of colour... lavender was white? i guess? (asked by Anonymous)

The rule was hers; Cersei did not mean to give it up until Tommen came of age. I waited, so can he. I waited half my life. She had played the dutiful daughter, the blushing bride, the pliant wife. She had suffered Robert’s drunken groping, Jaime’s jealousy, Renly’s mockery, Varys with his titters, Stannis endlessly grinding his teeth. She had contended with Jon Arryn, Ned Stark, and her vile, treacherous, murderous dwarf brother, all the while promising herself that one day it would be her turn. If Margaery Tyrell thinks to cheat me of my hour in the sun, she had bloody well think again.

Q:
I love how you defend your opinion about Lavender Brown. I agree that even though she was described to has pale skin and strawberry blonde hair it doesn't mean she HAS to be white! (asked by Anonymous)
A:

I don’t know if you’re genuine or trying to be a smartarse here, but whatever…

Harry looked into the corner she was indicating. There, in full view of the whole room, stood Ron wrapped so closely around Lavender Brown it was hard to tell whose hands were whose. 

This passage is literally the only “proof” we have of Lavender’s skin colour. Some people love to say Lavender must be as pale as Ron because Harry couldn’t tell “whose hands were whose!” Irrefutable evidence!!1! Isn’t it possible that Harry was beng a sarcastic little shit about Ron and Lavender’s positions? Naaaah. Stahp disrespecting canonz u evil bitch.

Lavender was never described to have “strawberry blonde hair” like you say. Literally never. I’ve just checked all the HP books on pdf, reading every mention of the name “Lavender.” No hair colour described anywhere.

And damn right that neither of these mean she has to be white. One of my closest friends has pale skin, dirty blonde hair and blue eyes, and she’s from Middle East. (She’s not biracial or anything, she’s actually from Middle East, from a Middle Eastern family, and moved here only a couple of years ago.)

Lastly, I’ve already stated that I was done with this debate with anonymous users. If you’d like to argue about this further, feel free to send your questions non-anonymously and I’ll gladly discuss this topic with you. If I keep receiving anonymous questions about this, I’m afraid I’ll either ignore you or rudely make fun of you. I’ll thank you for respecting that.

↳ ”But we’re not bad people. We’re like our emblem, the snake: sleek, powerful, and frequently misunderstood.”




This is the rarest core type. Phoenix feathers are capable of the greatest range of magic, though they may take longer than either unicorn or dragon cores to reveal this. They show the most initiative, sometimes acting of their own accord, a quality that many witches and wizards dislike.

Phoenix feather wands are always the pickiest when it comes to potential owners, for the creature from which they are taken is one of the most independent and detached in the world. These wands are the hardest to tame and to personalise, and their allegiance is usually hard won.
