Chatterbox: Down to Earth



So..... theories! *throws confetti* I love things that we have no idea about, and love thinking what could maybe be true about these things even more! On this thread, post any of your theories about anything. They can be absolutely crazy if you want! Here's mine: We're all dreaming about everything. or, people are writing about us and right now we're inside one long book.  Anyways, enjoy sharing theories about any random stuff! (I've been meaning to make this thread for soooo long XD)

The accounting department in The Office was involved in a money laundering scheme. They all had the perfect covers: Kevin was dumb, Angela was an uptight good Christian girl, and Oscar was the most normal person ever. In the finale, we see that Kevin bought a bar and Oscar is running for state senator. Where did they get the money? Also, Angela had an affair with Dwight while she was dating Andy, and we can see her smiling when Dwight and Andy fight over her in the parking lot.

There are tons of online videos that go really in-depth about this.

@Rainbow Riot, I love that first one, that's so clever and I can think of some good reasons for it... and please explain the second one it sounds potentially hilarious.

I gotta think of some good ones.

Ooh, I think I know the second one! Draco was out in the forest that night as Snape's spy but he didn't know about the Lupin being a werewolf so when Harry and Hermione escaped Lupin turned his attention to Draco who had been hiding in the woods the whole time!!!

Meh, just a guess.

@mOoNdRoP that actually sounds really plausible XD

Ok so the theory I heard takes place in Draco's sixth year. So, you know how he shows something on his left arm to Borgin, and Harry sees it and thinks it's a dark mark? It could be a werewolf bite. Draco does know Fenris Greyback, and remember, Greyback works for the Dark Lord. Most of the time he actually bites people's children as punishment on behalf of the Dark Lord, and Voldy-Moldy was pretty angry with Lucius Malfoy. So it's reasonable that Draco could've been bitten as punishment. Furthermore, throughout the year, Harry sees Draco looking ill, pale, tired, all of that, and those are side effects that come with transformation every full moon. Lastly, during the battle of Hogwarts, the barrier that prevented anyone from entering unless they had a dark mark went up right after Draco entered, and came down just before he exited.

I rest my case.

Also I just remembered a theory that Draco told Hermione about the basilisk in their 2nd year, because he picked up her library book (with no reason for doing so) when they were in Flourish and Botts, and Hermione's piece of evidence was ripped out of a library book, so maybe Draco ripped out a page on basilisks and put it in Hermiones book? Not really plausible since he didn't know about the heir of Slytherin and whatnot, but still possible!

I like the theory of Draco planting the book page for Hermione to find. Hermione would never rip a page out of a book, she would just check it out or sneak it out of the library. Tearing up a book just isn't her style. Plus, in the movie (Now, before anyone says anything, I have read the books, not just watch the the movies.), we see Draco rip a page out of a book at Florish and Blott's. It's probably not true, but it's fun to theorize!

I think I said some of this on Random Thoughts/Things but whatever.

In Heroes of Olympus it says that a god could only have a child (not counting twins) twice if one time was in Greek form and the other Roman. But this is broken twice, with Connor and Travis Stoll and with Bianca and Nico di Agelo. 

For a moment I breifly wondered if Bianca could be fully human but then I realized that it says in book three that they are both Half-bloods. Could she be . . . daughter of Pluto? I'm not sure that that is it either, considering she ended up associating herself with the Greeks. So is what is mentioned above only for Zues (whom I keep wanting to call Zuzu)/Jupiter, or was Rick Riordan wrong? What do y'all think?

Hmmmmm, it could be plausible that Bianca could be a daughter of Pluto! I think with Connor and Travis they're twins, so it's fine, as well as with Castor and Pollux, so they were born at the same time.

Actually, Connor and Travis aren't twins, one, I forget which, is older by a few years. That's why I didn't include Castor and Pollux. Could Bianca be the daughter of Pluto? I don't know. It's probably just a plot hole (which there are actually surprisingly few of for fifteen books). But still, the mysteries.

What if blood purity in harry potter isn't a thing

what if how powerful u are at magic isnt defined by some innate gene, but it's because of intent

my theory: 

magic is channeled through intent and theoretical practice. the theoretical practice (wand movements, spell names) and scholarly aspect of it is all meant to make it easier to channel the intent. thats why wandless and nonverbal spells are possible, because you dont need the wand or spells to channel intent, but its much more difficult to do it with raw magic. that also explains why u need to think of something happy to produce a patronus, because a patronus is a literal manifestation of your soul. and also why you need to really mean it to cast unforgiveable curses, because you can't cast dark magic unless your intent is equally dark. thats why all the greatest wizards where smart, and they learned things from research and stuff, because they understood how to channel intent properly

second theory:

wizards have magic in their brains, magical beings/creatures have it in their blood. wizards magic is like an on/off switch in their brains, but the chances of that switch being on for magic increase with heredity, which would explain why squibs are rare, but muggleborns are more common. magical creatures have magic in their blood, so they are innately magic, and they don't need intent to channel magic, because they are magic. this would mean that pureblood supremacy isn't a thing at all, and a house elf has purer blood than the sacred 28.

third theory:

adding on to the intent one, potions isn't actually the maker's magic. they're simply taking magic from different ingredients that were once living magic, and mixing it together and bottling it up to store for later. for potions you dont need to be able to channel your intent - u just need to be able to follow instructions, and also know the theory of it properly. stirs like counterclockwise and clockwise have different meanings (cw is to bring something in, to add something, while ccw is to banish something, or to separate), which fits with potions, because of the oddly specific stirring patterns. and ingredients matter, because magical creature parts each have different types of magic

feel free to disagree, i want to know you guys's takes on this!

Sounds like a good theory to me!

Nice theories. I think that a human is either a muggle or a wizard and it's usually genetic. I don't think it says anywhere and the books that the more wizard ancestry you have the more powerful, so I don't think that affects it at all. I also agree, magic for wizards is in the veins and creatures in blood, but I don't like to think of it as an on/off switch.
