    Harry Should Have Been A Teacher And Not An Auror

    From Redditor u/aaditto:

    Harry would DEFINITELY be a DaDA teacher and not an Auror. Too much PTSD for him. Also after having defeated Voldemort, the career scope for Aurors over the next 19 years would be drastically reduced.

    Hagrid Was Harry's Best Father-Figure

    From Redditor u/aaditto:

    Hagrid was more of a father to Harry than Sirius-Dumbledore-Lupin-Arthur combined.

    James And Sirius Were Bad People

    From Redditor u/Shindiggah:

    James Potter and Sirius Black were both genuinely sh*tty people that just so happened to be on the right side of the war.

    Ron And Hermione Aren't Compatible

    From Redditor u/drzoidburger:

    Ron is a huge d*ck to Hermione throughout the entire series, and there is no way they would be romantically compatible in real life. She is way too good for him. The epilogue would have been better if they had broken up and married other people.

    I hate Harry and Ginny together. It just felt like an excuse to have Harry and Hermione marry into the Weasley family.
