Albus dumbledore sexuality reasonings

opinion

She last shared her thoughts at HogwartsProfessor in a post on the hits and misses on the mobile app Harry Potter game.

Recently, I was sharing with a friend my excitement about the upcoming November 16th release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Although my comments seemed to mollify my friend enough that he was willing to go see the movie, his reaction caused me to reflect that perhaps other people might be having similar reservations.

the first time Albus Dumbledore...

Her response at the time in was: To an extent, do we say it excused Dumbledore a little more because falling in love can blind us to an extent? But, he met someone as brilliant as he was, and rather like Bellatrix he was very drawn Albus dumbledore sexuality reasonings this brilliant person, and horribly, terribly let down by him.

And this is because of what Dumbledore himself has shared of himself throughout the Harry Potter series. I also think it makes Dumbledore a little less culpable. I see him as fundamentally a very intellectual, brilliant and precocious person whose emotional life was absolutely subjugated to the life of the mind — by his choice — and then his first foray into the world of emotion is catastrophic and I think that would forevermore stunt that part of his life and leave it stultified and he would be, what he becomes.

And he keeps a distance between himself and others through humor, Albus dumbledore sexuality reasonings certain detachment and a frivolity of manner. A third reason is that Jo Rowling is writing the Fantastic Beasts movie screenplays.

After the latest Crimes of Grindelwald movie trailer, a Youtube video was posted by Looper that addresses this issue. As well as the controversy about the revelation of a woman called Nagini transforming into a snake.

But a link to this video is provided in the footnotes. Most famously three months after the final book came out inshe announced that Dumbledore was gay and had been in love with Grindelwald.

Many applauded Rowling for the announcement, but some felt she was trying to have her cake and eat it too by pandering to LGBTQ fans without truly taking the perceived risk of actually portraying Dumbledore as gay in either the books or films.

Rather I contend that the Fantastic Beasts movies will not only focus upon the larger issue of the great struggle to decide what the proper interaction and treatment of all magical and non-magical beings and creatures in the wizarding world should be, but will also showcase for us how Dumbledore struggles to come to terms with his guilt concerning the death of his sister, and his doubts concerning his own judgment and character, all in the face of the reality that Dumbledore was once enthralled and captivated by one of the most dangerous wizards of all time who is now intent on bringing war to both the wizarding and Muggle worlds.

Christina Semmens is a Roman Catholic missionary who can attest to the powerful nature of the Harry Potter stories for Albus dumbledore sexuality reasonings each of us to live lives of virtue while courageously reflecting love and mercy in a world that so desperately needs it.

Jude Law plays Albus Dumbledore...

She currently lives in Fort Payne, Alabama. Of course, Rowling has many more important points to make and questions to answer in this series. Her overarching themes will be about choices. I think people just have to wait and see and Albus dumbledore sexuality reasonings that in movies to come that relationship with be explored much more fully.

You can read that the way you want. One of them, after all, is a power mad psychopath, not exactly a poster child for the cause, right?

Albus dumbledore sexuality reasonings did Dumbledore truly see in the Mirror of Erised? He saw his family alive, whole and happy — Ariana, Percival and Kendra all returned to him, and Aberforth reconciled to him.

At least, not as a young man? If we know what DDore eventually comes to see, what does that tell us about the ultimate quality of his relationship with Grindlewald? I think we wind up back to the points Christina Semmens makes above. As JKR has noted in the Adeel article from years ago.

They burned with the same vision for Wizarding World domination and eventually even over the Muggle world.

That is what brought them together in relationship at first. Rowling stated that of all the issues so important to Dumbledore leading up to being one of the most powerful wizards in the series, his sexuality was down the list. She stated there are a hundred more things important to the man and what he accomplished up to his sacrifice in the defeat of the Dark Lord….

Too often of late, studios have disgracefully cut out large chunks of movies and leant on movie makers to squeeze films into smaller time slots. Point being, even if the scenes were shot, put in the trailer, and are critical to our understanding of the story… never rule out some greedy studio executive leaning on Albus dumbledore sexuality reasonings director and editor to see brilliant scenes left on the "Albus dumbledore sexuality reasonings" room floor.

Enjoy — or avoid! I can envision many different alternative plot lines. If we can sympathize with her and like her, I highly doubt that JK has constructed no way out for her. I believe that it will be an important part of the plot insofar as his relationship with Grindelwald will be a central to the story.

I do not expect that JK and Yates will be totally cryptic about Dumbledore being gay.

Gandalf The White and Albus...

JK made her bed once and for all when she led the cat out of the bag many years ago and declared unequivocally that Dumbledore was gay. Personally I am very intrigued by the upcoming movies and how they will handle increasingly dark and adult themes.

As a script writer JK has Albus dumbledore sexuality reasonings lot more control over the finished product. Fantastic BeastsGuest Posts.
