Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: Chapters 11-12

Harry to be in the wrong place at the wrong time; Harry, Ron, and Hermione to break a whole bunch of school rules; and the infiltration of the Slytherin common room. Sadly, nobody has murdered Lockhart yet.

Percy obsessing over this is something I never noticed before this re-read. It’s especially uncomfortable considering the washroom debatesĀ that have been going on recently. Sure, Ron isn’t trans as far as we’re aware, but it reinforces the idea that it’s ok to police who gets to use what washroom.

I’d never be able to breathe in Snape’s class, based on the descriptions. Can Madam Pomfrey cure all the kids with chronic conditions that walk into Hogwarts? How do they deal with accessibility issues? Or do we not get to be wizards?

In case anyone hasn’t figured it out yet, I really dislike this book.

I hope you are all entertained by my pain. Reading this terrible, terrible book. I do love book 3 though.
