I want a re-write of the Harry Potter books where Harry has real and lasting problems due to the abuse he suffered as a child, and is subject to upon entering his parents’ supposedly “better” world.
Where Ron and Hermione find him huddled in a closet halfway through potions class because Snape’s unapologetic abuse is a reminder of the eleven years of daily abuse he suffered at the hands of his aunt and uncle, and he has a panic attack and has to leave, and the only place he’s ever been safe has been in a closet under the stairs.
I want McGonagall to take Dumbledore to task over leaving Harry with his “next-of-kin”, even though he knew the type of abusive household it was. I want Dumbledore removed as the headmaster because he allows for his professors to maim and bully the students at his school. I want Snape to be removed from teaching duties and locked in a cell for abusing his students.
I know that the HP books are about a made-up world. But that doesn’t mean that actions shouldn’t have real-world consequences.
fontaine becomes angry one day
jack is annoying him
the rage builds until it is too laTe and he blurts the first thing that comes to mind as jack asks him for the hundredth time for another dog
"would you kindly suck my fuckin dick jesus christ im not getting you a dog"
he realizes what he says too late
they stare at one another intensely for only a few seconds
they both know what is about to happen
