harry potter wizards all ‘we can’t let muggles find out about magic, they’ll use it wrong’ or some shit, motherfuckers, you let a hat decide if your children are in the evil or non-evil section of school
Neville and Ron look so disappointed and Harry is just “The actual fuck, Dumbledore? The actual fuck!!”

J. K. Rowling: I said to Arthur, my American editor - we had an interesting conversation during the editing of seven - the moment when Harry takes Draco’s wand, Arthur said, God, that’s the moment when the ownership of the Elder wand is actually transferred? And I said, that’s right. He said, shouldn’t that be a bit more dramatic? And I said, no, not at all, the reverse. I said to Arthur, I think it really puts the elaborate, grandiose plans of Dumbledore and Voldemort in their place. That actually the history of the wizarding world hinged on two teenage boys wrestling with each other. They weren’t even using magic. It became an ugly little corner tussle for the possession of wands. And I really liked that - that very human moment, as opposed to these two wizards who were twitching strings and manipulating and implanting information and husbanding information and guarding information, you know? Ultimately it just came down to that, a little scuffle and fistfight in the corner and pulling a wand away.
Melissa Anelli: It says a lot about the world at large, I think, about conflict in the world, it’s these little things -
J. K. Rowling: And the difference one individual can make. Always, the difference one individual can make.
AUGH! JKR frustrates me as usual. I’m not opposed to the idea behind this the way she’s explaining it, but the way it actually played out in the text was just stupid. Instead of seeming to be about the little things or the difference one individual can make (seriously, even the way she’s describing it, how is that about the difference one individual can make?), it just seemed like man, wand ownership is really easily transferred, that must be inconvenient as all fuck in daily life. It didn’t feel like a MacGuffin or a misdirect, but a let-down on the arc we had been promised.
What if Draco had GIVEN HIM THE WAND instead? How much better would that have been? Because as it is, it’s not a story about the difference one individual can make. It’s a story about the difference a Chosen Savior can make. Which is ACTUALLY THE EXACT OPPOSITE STORY.
Amazing! I too imagined Draco attending healer school in a story I wrote. I guess it just follows naturally from the events of Deathly Hallows…
