434. A muggleborn who grew up watching Avatar: the Last Airbender discovers she can make fires bigger and move pebbles before she gets her letter and thinks she’s the avatar. Family members pass it off as an active imagination.
Anonymous asked: You do know the story behind Lavender Brown. In the sixth movie they didn't just make her white because she was playing a bigger part. It just so happens that the movies where a black actress played her came out before J.K. Rowling actually wrote the sixth book where she finally described Lavender Brown as being white. If anything it's one of the situations where an author didn't describe the race of a character and people just assumed she was black because that's what they wanted. So, yeah.
The only reference for Lavender’s race in the novels is a statement in HBP that Harry couldn’t figure out where her arms began and Ron’s ended. You can make the assumption that Ron is white from his hair and eye color, but if you look at the discussions on this blog, you can learn something: Minorities can and do have those genetics.
Either way, that little phrase was referring to movie!Lavendar - who is black before the 6th movie.
I feel like you’re trying to take the joy out what I’m doing, anon, and I don’t appreciate it.
And in a literature sense, saying Harry ”couldn’t figure out where her arms began and Ron’s ended” is to convey how close they were, not to indicate a similar appearance
Also if they were, I dunno, wearing clothes with sleeves, perhaps school uniform jumpers/shirts, that would explain any visual blurring of the two, regardless of skin colour. But also mostly what you just said.
