He saw his family, dolt.


Maybe he considered a sweaty, naked Grindelwald family.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

I find this kind of funny. But I suspect J.K. was talking more about Dumbledore's youth and not so much about his old age. He is rather asexual in the books.

I doubt Lupin and Sirius were gay, though. I always thought that was a weird obsession of fanfiction authors.

Meh, everything seems to go in the Harry Potter world. Harry/Hedwig, Hermione/Giant Squid, Filch/McGonagall, Dumbledore/Grindelwald, Snape/Your Mum - all good.

It was on the news and in dozens of newspapers. It also fits the story well. Seems pretty much true.

Yup...

And here are a few other things about HP characters which J.K. Rowling never specified in print, but were nevertheless true.


Harry was allergic to asparagus, which gave him hives and projectile diarrhea.

Hagrid was a virulent racist, who believed black people hatched from eggs and drank blood.

Draco Malfoy was born with both male and female genitalia.

Ron Weaselly once set fire to a homeless man behind K-Mart.

Hermione was a compulsive masturbator.

Oop, read it on Salon, must be true. Yahoo's just a shitrag, so I couldn't trust them.

Allow me to edit the previous statement: Don't care about everything you read on the internet.

Nah, it's been in several newspapers, dear fellow. Dear JK definitely affirmed Dumblydorr's love for other wizards.

Now, whether she actually meant for this in the book or is using the event to bask in the limelight again, I can't really say.

Yes, Earthrise, I know. Salon said so, and I'm a devout follower of Salon, ever since I met its founder. But this does not change the fact that Yahoo is a shitrag. And there's no need to be so patronizing.

Well, she is done writing Harry Potter books what else can she do to entertain herself?

Pfft that's how I speak on a regular basis. I promise it's not patronizing.

Yahoo is a shitrag, I agree.

Yes, but that would take effort. Messing with interviewers takes almost none.
