Harry Potter Moment #208

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 
Harry Potter Moment of the Week was created by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts  and is hosted here @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote or memory  from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!  How to join up &  upcoming topics here.

Happy Potter-Thursday all!! I just realized I never posted last week, so I'm going to  go ahead and post last week's topic today and hopefully catch up with this week's topic in a few:

Which character confused you the most through the series?

Is it a cop-out if I go with Dumbledore? I mean, I'm pretty sure he was supposed to confuse us - he sure as shit confused Harry on a regular basis!  It's not like I ever wondered if he was bad or anything (MAN, THAT would have been a twist!) but his motives always held more than what we were led to believe. Was he protecting Harry? Was he training him up to face Voldemort? Which did he care more about, the protecting or the training? He certainly always had riddles and guessing games for Harry to play. And whenever he did reveal information, he always held the most important stuff back.  To me it was always clear that he knew more than he was letting on and the constant guessing about whatever secret he was holding on to kept me confused through most of the books.  

I still love the man though and no one will convince me otherwise.  If Harry was 'Dumbledore's man through and through' well that's good enough for me.  Sure I might have wanted some things to go down differently from what they did but I know Dumbledore cared for Harry and tried to do what was best - at the same time. He walked a tight line but he did it better than any of us would have.

So tell me: what character confused you the most in the series?


  1. Sounds like Dumbledore and Gandalf share a lot of qualities. You gotta love a character when you know they have all the secrets, but they always hold the juiciest parts back!

  2. What a good question - I feel like there are quite a few that confused me, but Dumbledore is definitely one of them! I was always so confused as to why he never just told Harry what he needed to know and instead made it so much more difficult for him, haha. Great post!

  3. I didn't know this feature before, but I'll join and start doing it next week! I have a lot to catch up haha! But I totally agree with Dumbledore. I really don't know whether he's the nice old wise figure we always thought he is, or he's truly someone who's just using Harry for his power gain. I did a post a while back explaining why do I feel that Dumbledore is shady now that I'm older xD

  4. I'd have the same answer. He always walked a fine line and I really do think he cared about Harry but in the end all of this was bigger than just Harry. I still love him though and honestly where would any of them be without him.

  5. I love Dumbledore too but it's because he looks like a loving grandpa... The one that confuses me the most was Prof Snape :) I don't understand his consistent coldness towards the students

  6. Hm, good question. I would say Dumbledore as well since at the end I'm still not 100% sure of some of his motives and the honesty behind them. I suspect he was a great guy with only good motives at the end but there is a little bit of doubt there still.
