Alan Rickman Writing About His Frustrations Filming The Harry Potter Series Is SOOOO Snape!

no title

Is perfection too much to ask for? Snape never thought so.

And neither did Alan Rickman — who was apparently quite frustrated with the development of his character while filming the Harry Potter franchise, according to a collection of the actor's personal items up for auction.

Two years after his passing, the Neil Pearson Rare Books released Rickman's old scripts, photographs, letters, and personal diaries as part of an auction at the ABA Rare Book Fair in London.

Among these items includes a letter from producer David Heyman, who thanked Rickman for his work on Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets — as well as dealing with his many frustrations filming the series.

Dumbledore Will Not Be 'Explicitly' Gay In Fantastic Beasts, And Fans Are FUCKING LIVID!

no title

So yeah, remember that whole thing where J.K. Rowling FINALLY offered LGBT fans of the Harry Potter universe a bit of representation by saying Dumbledore was gay.

Only, you know, never mentioning it in the books, just after the fact?

Well, it looks like the Fantastic Beasts films will continue that "don't ask, don't spell" policy with hot Dumbledore Jude Law.

Video: That Voldemort Fan Film Dropped, And You Can Watch Here For FREE!

When Entertainment Weekly asked The Crimes Of Grindelwald director David Yates if we would finally get concrete reference to the wizard's sexual orientation, he disappointingly said:

"Not explicitly. But I think all the fans are aware of that. He had a very intense relationship with Grindelwald when they were young men. They fell in love with each other's ideas, and ideology and each other."

See, don't worry, guys! It's 2018, we can get away with weakly implied homosexuality, just so long as all our homophobic fans don't have to face it! Progress!

Naturally, fans let their feelings about the insult be known on Twitter — see some of the strongest reactions (below)!

#BlackHogwarts Is Trending On Twitter — & The Posts Are Honestly Beautiful!

black hogwarts trending

There is no denying there has been a diversity problem in the Harry Potter franchise.

We mean, in the films, pretty much ALL of the main characters were portrayed by white actors and actresses. While recent casting efforts in spin off projects — re: black Hermione in the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child — show that J.K. Rowling's Wizarding world isn't totally white washed, there's still more inclusivity efforts that can be done.

Thus, we were pretty pleased to find that #BlackHogwarts was trending on Twitter on Thursday. In an attempt to diversify the beloved fictional Wizarding school, Black Twitter responded by showing what Hogwarts would be like if black students attended. Snap! Snap!
