Five by Friday: Top Five Harry Potter Headcanons

Welcome to Five by Friday!

This weekend marks a special day in the Harry Potter fandom for two reasons: July 31 will be Harry’s 36th birthday, and it is also the release date for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, J.K. Rowling’s dramatic follow-up to her beloved Harry Potter series. To mark this totally awesome occasion, we’ve decided to use this week’s Five by Friday to highlight some of our favorite Harry Potter headcanons — fandom theories which are not explicitly verified in the text, but which we believe to be true.

Since all three of us tend to love the same theories, instead of doing individual lists this week, we’ve just compiled our top five overall headcanons.

Oh, and in case it needs to be said: spoilers abound.
