Fans Think Harry Potter's Ariana Dumbledore Was An Obscurus & We Definitely Agree With Them

Fans Think Harry Potter's Ariana Dumbledore Was An Obscurus & We Definitely Agree With Them

Harry Potter fans are just way too smart and we yearn to be like them all the time — especially when they figure out something like this.

In a major connection with the prequel franchise, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, fans have pointed out that Ariana Dumbledore, Albus’ younger sister, might have actually been an obcurus too, like Credence (Ezra Miller).

Here’s the history behind Ariana: she was assaulted by three Muggle boys who saw her doing magic and because of this trauma, Ariana refuses to use her powers and becomes magically unstable.

Years later, their mother Kendra dies in an accidental outburst of magic from Ariana, leaving Albus in charge of the family.

Sounds an awful lot like an obscurus to us!

See what all the fans are saying below:

Tom Felton & Matthew Lewis Find Their True Patronuses at Pottermore (Video)

Tom Felton & Matthew Lewis Find Their True Patronuses at Pottermore (Video)

We think Tom Felton and Matthew Lewis are just a little disappointed with their true patronuses, after taking a Pottermore quiz.

Obviously, Matthew (Neville Longbottom) was hoping for The Rock, and Tom, well…he didn’t get his fire breathing dragon.

Instead, they both got cats!

Tom learned that if Dementors ever came his way, he’d have some help of a ragdoll cat.

Matthew has a tortoiseshell cat at his side — and he didn’t seem to mind it at all, actually.

Warwick Davis, who played both Griphook and Professor Filius Flitwick in the franchise, also took the quiz and found out his own Patronus would be a weasel.

Even an obliviate curse couldn’t keep Ariana Grande‘s extensive Harry Potter knowledge down.

J.K. Rowling tweeted a picture of an enormous (terrifying) spider this week, and the pop star knew exactly how to respond.

“arania exumai,” Ariana quote-tweeted the author, referencing an obscure spell in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Hermione uses fighting off spiders.

Fans are seriously impressed with her riddikulus knowledge — but not too surprised.

After all, this is the singer who named her puppy Sirius Black in 2015, and who attended the Deathly Hallows Part II premiere in 2011.

Tell JJJ: What Hogwarts house do you think Ariana would fall in?

It's Albus Severus Potter's First Day at Hogwarts & Muggles Are Celebrating Hard

September 1st, 2017 marks the official “19 Years Later” from Harry Potter, and author JK Rowling, and fans across the world are giving us all the feels about it.

Albus Severus Potter, Rose Granger-Weasley, and Scorpius Malfoy have officially started their magical journey at Hogwarts and fans across the world are celebrating.

“Today’s the day Albus Severus Potter boards the Hogwarts Express at King’s Cross for the first time #19yearslater,” author JK remembered on Twitter.

It gets even better when you see that muggles gathered in London’s King’s Cross Station to celebrate said day and it makes us sad that we aren’t there too.

Together, a packed crowd counted down the minutes until 11 a.m. – the exact time when the Hogwarts Express promptly departs the station. We mean, how cool is this?

Happy first year Albus, Scorpius and Rose!
