You know you’ve made it as an author when your stories grow legs and run away from you. In 1967, Roland Barthes penned an insightful but tiresome essay named “The Death of the Author”, which argued that anybody’s interpretation of a text is every bit as valid as the author’s. With the amount of fan theories floating around on Reddit, J. K. Rowling apparently has very little grasp on the past and future of the world she has created.

This ingenious theory points out that several of the Weasley clan became fairly obnoxious after only a short time in the presence of a horcrux.
