Anonymous asked: What do you think about S.P.E.W?
I think that the Elf community should have the option to serve for pay or not. Some in the Elf community, like Winky, embrace the culture from which they come and serve because it’s apart of their tradition. They believe serving the family their ancestors served brings honor and meaning and purpose to their lives, and they’re happy to do so with a home, hearth, and security as payment.
But then there are those in the community who don’t see eye to eye with that tradition. Dobby, for instance, loves his work and enjoys most people. However, he recognizes that he has the right to be compensated for the work that he does. He wishes to be free from a particular family or household, leaving his options open to upward mobility or better wages.
I support the individual’s choice in this case. As an organization, I think S.P.E.W has well-meaning potential, and it could really give a voice for those elves who wish to go the Dobby route and start making independent, lucrative lives for themselves. Just as long as it doesn’t turn into a cause that would force those in the Winky camp into doing something they do not wish to do. I support S.P.E.W’s endeavors to educate both the wizarding and elfish communities on the movement so all parties can make an educated decision that is right for them. I believe President Granger-Weasley will do a fine job nurturing her movement in the proper way.
a ravenclaw inventing a spell like “ive enchanted this quill so that one dip in an inkwell and it will be able to draw from that inkwell until its out! no redipping!” and their muggle born friend just
"a…pen.you literally just used magic to make a pen"
And then the muggleborn gives them a normal pen and they’re just like “how does it workOH MY MERLIN IT CLICKS” and they just spend the whole class clicking their pen
