wheras the harry potter books attempt to employ dull "realistic" concepts like banking, government, and school to the concept of "magic," yet does not have a logical explanation for where magic comes from, any attempt to make one, and the thermodynamic laws employed within are crappy and flimsy.

Boy oh boy do I have the lovely fanfic for you

What exactly happens when a dementor eats your soul? Is it a nonexistence/annihilation type thing, or does your consciousness just float around in the unkillable hellbeast's stomach for all eternity?

Followup: whose loving idea was it to staff the only wizard prison in the world with soul-sucking demons that literally devour joy and happiness? That automatically makes every wizard authority far worse than Voldemort, who prefers a magical painless instakill.

Dumbledore really should have just made Snape the assistant janitor instead, since he's shockingly incompetent at teaching anyone anything.

I distinctly remember that Ron gives love potions (which are explicitly magical date rape drugs) to a child as a present.

We can only guess at how many house-elves they threw into that thing to test it

I do like how Draco - pissy richboy Draco - was able to master anti-mindreading magic but Harry just absolutely could not be assed even after he was well aware Voldy was tooling around in his mind.

To be fair, Draco probably wasn't stuck with the worst learning environment imaginable by having his single most hated person on earth rooting around his most embarassing memories and openly mocking/insulting him, all while being screamed at to keep a cool head and refrain from any emotions.

the chamber of secrets contains the deepest mystery in the entire series

who the gently caress is the Plumber of Slytherin? the guy that converted the hidden entrance of the chamber into a bathroom, and connected enough pipes to the chamber itself to allow the basilisk to move around. who made the pipes big enough for the basilisk in the first place. what is the story of this person???
