Harry Potter Character Outed By J. K. Rowling
Appearing in front of a full house at Carnegie Hall, J.K. Rowling "outed" Albus Dumbledore.
"Dumbledore is gay," she confirmed to gasps and applause.
Further, she said that Dumbledore was in love with fellow wizard Gellert Grindelwald, but it was a romance that was not meant to be.
"Falling in love can blind us to an extent," the noted author commented.
The outing of Dumbeldore is an extremely brave and revolutionary act, considering the money for the books has all been counted already.
In other news, "Doctor Who"/"Torchwood" character Captain Jack Harkness still out and fabulous bisexual male.

Dumbledore and Grindelwald.ReplyDelete
Doesn't quite have the mythic je ne se quoi of Merlin and Nimue, does it?
Argh. Every minute I spend thinking about this yields another wrongness. For instance: What exactly does Dumbledore DO at Hogwarta? What's his job title?

I've been grinning like an idiot these past few days, because Dumbledore/Grindelwald has been my OTP since reading DH.ReplyDelete
