The Most Depressing Harry Potter Fan Theory

By

The only thing creepier than a spot-on Harry Potter fan theory is a spot-on Harry Potter fan theory that is … not exactly unconfirmed by J.K. Rowling herself.

Harry Potter is a novel series with quite a few depressing moments to get readers all up in their feelings, so it’s certainly something when a fan theory is arguably more depressing than anything Harry went through. In an article for Bustle, writer Emma Lord gives a summary of this theory and explains why it could actually be true.
