of-flowers asked: can u talk about ur feelings w: regards to dumbledore
yip yip & they are not very popular but I really feel like dumbledore’s horrifyingly selfish in regards to harry?? and obviously wants to have his best interests at heart but really. doesn’t. like. not telling this young man that you claim to have so much love for that he needs to sacrifice himself for the good of mankind????? not giving him any real useful information post mortem even though you plan your own death out??? consistently not telling harry very important pieces of information about his own life, his family and HIS SOUL because he wants to protect him and feels bad abt it???? i’m sorry but the world doesn’t work that way.
and beyond that I can just never forgive him for forcing harry to return to the dursley’s year after year when he knew harry was being abused by them. like I know it was for harry’s safety or whatever but there had to have been other options that didn’t involve forcing a 12 year old boy to live in a home where his guardians hate him
