J.K. Rowling Spent Her Weekend Crushing Some ‘Harry Potter’ Fan Theories

Everyone has their bad days.. but when J.K. Rowling does, watch out.
I guess Rowling had a rough day at the office, because she hopped on twitter this weekend to shatter the dreams of Potter fans across the globe.
The famed author took questions from fans and revealed new details for fans.

Fans lined up by the dozens to ask J.K. Rowling questions about the series. Some got answers they didn't want to hear though.

Apparently, Harry Potter fans have created a theory that has Ron Weasley becoming Dumbledore through the power of time travel (idk how this theory came to pass.. but ok.) Rowling hopped on twitter and put an end to theory. When a fan asked if it was true, Rowling replied "False Theory."
Another theory that popped up Rowling’s Twitter feed is the idea that Draco is a werewolf and Snape is some sort of vampire (yall need to step away from Twilight, man...)
Rowling put that one to bed when asked on Twitter as well, saying "I've never seen that one before. Draco definitely isn't a werewolf (and Snape's not a vampire)."
Well, Potter fans, you got the answers you wanted, whether you liked them or not.
Personally, I'm relived that Ron isn't Dumbledore and Snape isn't a Vampire because those don't make a lot of sense to me.
With that being said, I know some of you were looking forward to that one being true.. not matter how odd the road that followed would've been.

Proof That Emma Watson Is The Most Perfect Starlet Role Model
We all know our little Hermione Granger; a pushy, intelligent, know-it-all who is 100% the reason Harry was able to defeat Voldemort. So how could we think that the actress who played our favorite hero could be anything less then amazing? Since filming has wrapped up Emma Watson has used her star power for good, becoming a perfect role model for young girls and boys, fighting for gender equality, helping create the He ForShe campaign, and even speaking at the U.N. How very Hermione of her. So here is just a few of her many perfect quotes that are undeniable evidence that she is one of the most amazing female role models of our generation. One of the greatest things about Harry Potter was it taught girls that they do not have to wait to be saved. Emma Watson brings this idea into reality by believing that girls can and should be warriors! I will fight till my last breath that Hermione is the only reason Voldemort didn't make a come back. Sometimes it is really hard to believe in yourself when everyone feels the need to chime in with their opinions. Emma reminds us that you will never please everyone so you might as well please yourself. Magazines drive me nuts! Photoshop coupled with the celebs huge bank account which can be used for plastic surgery touch ups and designer clothes makes it impossible for girls to compare. Having a role model that is comfortable in their skin makes it easier for other people to find that same comfort. Sometimes girls need to be reminded to cut ourselves some slack. When we expect to look like the fake pictures on magazines its hard not to be disappointed. Emma's version of sexy doesn't involve micro minis and crop tops. She believes that less is more and if you dress in what makes you comfortable then everyone will see how beautiful you look. Its a refreshing outlook on sexy for those girls who love sweaters and jeans. Have confidence in yourself and Dare to be Different! Just because you aren't into getting drunk every weekend or Orange is the New Black, doesn't make you a loser. Like what you like, its a waste of your time to pretend to be something you're not. In a world where its all about looks, the smart quitter girls sometimes feel pushed to the side. Don't act dumb just because you think that it'll land you the guy. Because pretending he's right all the time will get old really quick. Plus you deserve better. Just thank you! I hate when people try too talk about feminism when they don't even know the real definition. And Emma (like Hermione) presents her points perfectly. She is articulate and well prepared. Feminism is too often considered a "female" issue. Emma Watson includes everyone in the fight for equality, which is brilliant because isolating half of the population will not work for anyone. You are bloody brilliant Emma Watson. Hermione would be so proud (and a tad bit jealous).
The 3 Countries Where Adele Isn't No.1
To tell you they're sorry for breaking your heart, Adele. WHAT!? Adele didn't achieve world domination. She may be the biggest star in ALMOST every country in the world however three countries seem to disagree. They're too preoccupied with their own music tastes and Adele just isn't one of them. In 29 international markets, Adele managed to rank No.1 in 26 of them which is basically unheard of. She's the No.1 artist in 110 countries on iTunes worldwide except for three. '3' really isn't a magic number for this pop star. Despite her record breaking album '25' : 3 million copies of the album sold in the first week of American sales alone, being the biggest-selling album released since 2011, the most sold album yearly since 2004, and broke records in how quickly her European and North American tours sold out, Adele pretty much wins...99% of the time. Thanks to Fusion.com, data was collected to show that these countries have different chart toppers and their fans wouldn't want it any other way. These countries have another preference... South Korea Why they don't prefer Adele? KPOP! Its the Korean Pop sensation that seems to dominate the music tastes of the country. The singers are hot. The music makes you want to start dancing. The music videos are strangely mesmerizing. And you've never had a party without wanting to scream at the top of your lungs to the clever lyrics that most Americans don't understand (aka Gangnam Style anyone?). Also, one must take into consideration that Koreans chart differently than most other Western countries. They have : domestic album sales, international sales, and a synthesized chart. Fusion.com found that Adele may be winning over their international chart however her streaming and album sales in South Korea are no comparison to the outstanding domestic sales of KPOP within the country. Here are Korean's top albums: - "The Most Beautiful Life," Pt 2 by the Bangtan Boys - "MATRIX" by B.A.P. - "Dear Santa - X Mas Special" by Girls Generation TTS Japan Why they don't prefer Adele? Japanese only track physical sold copies and as of now, Adele has only sold enough to make her the 7th highest album as of Dec. 7, 2015. Japanese also love KPOP but they're not as influential. It's also important to take note that digital downloads in the Japan music market outsell albums by 400% according to Fusion's research. Here are the following albums that have outsold Adele : - "For You" by Infinite - "Chandelier" by Black Number - "Sight of Blue" by Motohiro Hata Greece Why they don't prefer Adele? Blame it on the way they chart. They tracked how many '25' albums were shipped into the country instead of how many albums were sold total. Talk about bizarre. Even with Greece's adoration for American and British music, Adele only hit the No. 2 spot on Greek charts. They may track domestic and foreign music sales however their marks are harshly skewed. Sorry, Adele. The data didn't help you. Here are the albums that topped Adele: - "Ap' To Vorra Mehri to Noto" by Vasilis Karras - "M' Agapouses Ki Anthize" by Eleanora Zouganeli - "Nikos Vertis" by Nikos Vertis So really, other than MAYBE South Korea, Adele has won over everyone except for KPOP fans. There's always next time, Adele.

<선데이 라이언> Ep.3 食스틸러, 보기만 해도 침 고이는 영화
우리는 흔히 “다 먹고 살자고 하는 일인데”라는 말을 하곤 한다. 일상을 살아가는 이유 중 하나 '食'. 이별을 해도 밥을 먹어야 한다는 말처럼 업무와 학업 등 일상의 스트레스에 이별까지 겪어도 밥은 넘어간다. 이는 바로 음식이 주는 행복 때문이지 않을까. 각자에게는 음식마다 즐거움과 그리움 등 다양한 추억들이 있다. 때론 잘 먹은 밥 한 끼 만큼이나 지친 일상을 위로해주는 것은 없을 터. " 이번주 일요일엔 뭐 보지? " 라이언은 이번 주 맛있는 한 상으로 당신을 위로한다. 영화 속 먹는 장면을 보면 평소에 즐겨 찾는 음식이 아니더라도 이상하게 입맛을 다시게 되는 경우가 많듯, 절로 배고픔을 부르는 이름하여 '食스틸러' 영화. 맛있는 주말을 위한 <선데이 라이언> Ep.3 지금부터 라이언의 푸짐한 한 상에 초대한다. <해리 포터와 마법사의 돌> <해리 포터> 시리즈에는 다양한 음식들이 등장한다. 버터 비어와 온갖 맛이 나는 젤리빈 등 실제 맛을 알 수 없어도 군침을 돋우는 음식들. 하지만 그중 가장 침샘을 자극하는 영화는 첫 번째 작품에서 등장한 치킨이 아닐까 싶다. 익히 아는 맛이라 더욱 맛있어 보이는 것. 양손에 닭 다리를 들고 허겁지겁 먹는 모습이 왠지 마치 집에서 보이는 익숙한 모습 같기도 하다. "여보세요? 지금 배달되죠?" <마녀> 우리나라 사람이라면 삶은 계란 맛집으로 공감하는 곳 '기차'. 극중 오디션 프로그램을 위해 친구와 함께 기차에 탄 자윤(김다미)은 역시나 기차에서 빠질 수 없는 음식, 삶은 계란과 사이다를 먹는다. 양 볼이 미어터질 만큼 욱여넣는 모습은 별거 아닌데도 괜스레 먹고 싶어지는 마음. 더욱이 이 장면은 계란 세 판을 먹으며 완성돼 한동안 계란을 못 먹었다는 후일담까지 전해지기도. "기차에서 이 조합을 안 먹어본 사람이 있다고?" <토르: 천둥의 신> 충무로에 하정우가 있다면 마블(Marvel)에는 토르가 있다. 아스가르드가 아닌 지구에서의 험난한 적응기를 담은 첫 번째 시리즈 속 잊을 수 없는 장면. 배를 채우러 들어간 음식점에서 음료 맛이 좋다며 컵을 깨뜨리는 토르는 아스가르드에서 할 법한 행동으로 친구들을 당황시킨다. 그리고 겹겹이 쌓아올린 팬케이크와 스크램블 에그를맛있게 먹어치우는 토르. 완벽한 브런치 한 끼에당장이라도 영화 속 식당으로 들어가고만 싶다. "팬케이크는 자고로 소스에 푸욱 담가먹는 '담먹'이지." <터미널> 이 영화를 볼 때에는 주목할 점이 있다. 바로 먼저 햄버거를 시켜 놓을 것. 그게 버거킹 와퍼 세트라면 더욱 금상첨화고. 거장 스티븐 스필버그(Steven Spielberg) 감독이 제작한 작품은 실화를 바탕으로 공항에 억류하게 된 한 남자의 이야기를 담았다. 그곳에서 생활하며 동전을 모고 매일 버거킹 와퍼를 사 먹게 되는 그. 게 눈 감추듯 사라지는군침 도는 먹방은 물론 감동적인 휴머니즘까지 스토리와 재미를 모두 겸비했다. "햄버거 먹을 땐 소스 다 묻히고 먹는 거 알지?" <강철비> '면치기' 하면 생각나는 영화 <내부자들> 라면, <김씨표류기> 짜장면 그리고 <강철비> 국수. 남한으로 내려오게 되면서 며칠을 굶은 북한 최정예 요원, 엄철우 역의 정우성과 곽철우(곽도원)가 만나 환상적인 명장면이 탄생했다. 실제 맛집에서 촬영된 장면은 수갑을 바꿔 차면서까지 사이좋게 먹는 모습에 고향은 다르지만 식성은 동일하다는 것을 보여준달까. 식욕을 자극하는 먹방은 물론 남북한의 이해관계 그리고 사람 사이의 심리적 관계까지 공감 어린 대사들로 가득 채운 영화다. "세 그릇이면.. 이제 마이 뭇다. 더 이상은 안돼.." " 라이언이 추천하는 다음 주 영화는? " 맛있는 거 먹고, 보는 것만으로도 지난 한주를 보상받는 느낌이다. 맛 좋은 위로로 이번 한 주도 잘 끝내고 싶다면 라이언과 함께 지금부터 맛있는 한 상을 차려보자. 좋은 영화와 음식으로 달콤한 하루 그리고 위로받는 일요일을 만끽해보길. 라이언이 추천하는 다음 주 영화는? 봄꽃이 만발하는 계절, 라이언이 프로도를 토닥여주는 이유가 궁금하다면 4월 9일 찾아올 <선데이 라이언> Ep. 4를 기대해보자. 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
