"Fan fiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of by the folk."
— Henry Jenkins (Director of media studies at MIT)

james turning down every hogsmeade invitation by telling them he’s going stag

Sirius spreading a rumour that he has a cat just so when people ask him about it he can go, “Nah, I’m a dog person.”

Peter being loud so when a teacher chews him out, he can promise to be “quiet as a mouse”

Remus skipping meals so people can hear his stomach grumbling and he can apologise for being “hungry like the wolf.”

no one will ever understand the deep fucking connection I have with this film

For real though

John Hughes was the king of cinema for generations of teenagers.

Such an important film.  There hasn’t been a coming-of-age film like it since.  Truly.  It’s a lost genre.  Also an incredible soundtrack full of great music from its era.
