One of the best things about art — any art — is that it sparks our own imaginations and lets us take something that exists and change or add to it. Songs can be set to new music, paintings can have new backdrops, and sculptures can have new meanings.

One of the biggest forms of art that can be changed or added to is literature. Characters can be given new motivation, the conflicts can be rewritten, and the world can gain more backstory. This doesn't mean we don't love or appreciate the way a book was written; it just means we love it enough to explore a different path.

The Harry Potter series is a great example of this. Many fans of the series have created their own stories, theories, and art depicting their own versions of the characters, the plot, and the history.

These fans have also added some amazing and hilarious things to the Harry Potter world and lore that are just waiting to be discovered.


Ready to make the discovery, Redditor lordpond asked:

"You gain control of JK Rowling's twitter account for a day. What unnecessary piece of information do you add to Harry Potter lore?"

Now That's Dedication!

"Buckbeak is an animagus who is fully intelligent and capable of turning back into a human at any time, but doesnt because its his fetish."

– varkarrus

"I love this because he was so committed he let himself be executed in the original timeline."

– Pancakemuncher

Duplication

"‘The goblins at Gringotts don’t have children. They just randomly split one day during a mitosis-like process and then go about their days. Their suits are part of this process’ ~ my amazing SO"

– leafnood

"I mean goblins are really weird so I'm not surprised"

– pls_kangarooe

Delusional

"Hermione was actually a collective delusion shared by Harry and Ron"

– Deleted User

"And Krum went with it because he's hugely unstable."

– Deleted User

"Or, Hermione and Ron are Harry’s alters and Hogwarts is actually an asylum."

– fantasticmiss

Twin Theories

"Fred came back as a ghost"

– themilkiestofmen

"Fred and George Weasley switched places during the Battle of Hogwarts. When George died, Fred adopted George's life - complete with cutting off his ear - because he figured George wouldn't want him to spoil the joke."

– TheQueq

"Makes sense as to why George ended up marrying Angelina Johnson when it was Fred who dated her at Hogwarts."

– Wand_Cloak_Stone

Vampires And Werewolves And Hybrids, Oh My!

"“Twilight is absolutely in the same universe.”"

– z0mb0rg

"How does that explain Cedric Diggory?"

– KhunDavid

"Clearly after Cedric dies he becomes a vampire."

No Materials Left

– ConsciousScolopendra

"What happens when plastic straws are banned?"

– KhunDavid

Those Collections

"Snape was a stamp collector, this is the real reason James Potter bullied him."

– Quacks_dashing

"It was really him and not the Weasleys who wrote and mailed the letter inviting him to the Quiddich World Cup. All those stamps on the envelope were his way getting back at James."

– KhunDavid

"I dunno I pegged him more as a model train kind of guy."

–Deleted User

"Dumbledore Asked Calmly"

"Harry put his name in the Goblet of Fire"

– thechelle218

"And the portion of Voldemort's soul in him allowed him to do so because it was old enough."

"How do you know? Did you ask him calmly?"

– directtodvd

Changed Identity

– OobleCaboodle

"The Lego House music video is actually Harry Potter canon."

– HMCetc

Family Is Forever

"Dudley Dursley has a muggle born daughter, she gets her Hogwarts letter and Dudley reconnects with Harry so he can learn about magic and be the opposite of his parents."

– veloca_rapper

Aww, that last one is so heartwarming. I hope that can come to fruition one day!

Some people are far more conscious of their health than others.

Be it out of obligation or self-interest, many people make a point of avoiding certain foods and products, and partaking in extreme diets and exercise plans.

Which doesn't mean they avoid unhealthy habits or products altogether.

Indeed, all of us are probably unaware that we all likely partake in eating food, using products, or even performing what might seem like everyday activities which could be harmful to our health.

Be it by happenstance or obligation.

I'm always stunned by bad parenting.

And I see it far too often.

People need a license to drive.

A license to fish.

But having kids?

Let anybody do it. Sure.

So many kids deserve better.

CW: Suicide.

Finding a dead body is one of my worst fears.

The only one I've ever found was my grandma's.

She was dying of cancer so it wasn't horrific.

Blood makes me faint, so any horrific scenes will not go well for me.
