Could she be an Obscurial? Read “The Mysterious Life and Death of Ariana Dumbledore” and have no doubts

//Por Vinicius Bellemo - Monday, 05 de December de 2016 às 18:00


After “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” premiered worldwide, several theories linked to the Harry Potter universe were created by fans, based on new information provided by the film. One of them is about the terms “Obscurus” and “Obscurial”, both announced in “Fantastic Beasts”.

Designating all “Obscurial” as “a young wizard or witch who developed a dark parasitical magical force, known as an Obscurus”, that, according to the Harry Potter Wiki is “a result of their magic being suppressed through psychological or physical abuse”, the Harry Potter fans quickly connected the terms with the mysterious disease of Albus Dumbledore’s famous younger sister: Ariana Dumbledore.

Coincidence or not, a few days after the theory that describes Ariana Dumbledore as an Obscurial spread over the internet, Pottermore released on their official website the text: The Mysterious Life and Death of Ariana Dumbledore (click the link to read the full text). The article can be seen as an official confirmation that the sister of Hogwarts’ former headmaster really was an Obscurial.

J.K. Rowling explains what’s behind Remus Lupin’s condition

//Por Aline Michel - Saturday, 10 de September de 2016 às 13:11


In one of her new ebooks, J.K. Rowling explained the truth behind Remus Lupin’s condition.

The author said that Remus being part werewolf was a metaphor for those “illnesses that carries a stigma”, like Aids and HIV.

She wrote: ‘Lupin’s condition of lycanthropy (being a werewolf) was a metaphor for those illnesses that carry a stigma, like HIV and AIDS’.

“All kinds of superstitions seem to surround blood-borne conditions, probably due to taboos surrounding blood itself. The wizarding community is as prone to hysteria and prejudice as the Muggle one, and the character of Lupin gave me a chance to examine those attitudes.”

Although that news is now circulating the internet, the revelation is not new. J. K. Rowling already made a statement on her Twitter:

“There is no retcon re: Remus Lupin. The so-called ‘revelation’ now circulating is recycled from interviews given 17 years ago”
