i think there was one fan fiction from like five years ago that headcanoned Harry’s lack of motivation towards school work bc when he grew up with the Dursleys he wasn’t supposed to be better than Dudley in anything especially school work
There have been a couple like that, including a few that actually include punishment and abuse when Harry does do better than Dudley in school. It’s pretty much a fandom-wide headcanon, I think lol.

THIS IS THE MOST USEFUL THING SOMEONE HAS EVER COMMENTED ON ONE OF MY POSTS THANK YOU
as a skinny person, you are catered to and you don’t even realize it. did you ask for that? no and i understand that. but you will never cry your eyes out in a dressing room because even the largest size doesn’t fit. you will never deal with rejection from a guy solely because of your weight. you are socially accepted.
is any kind of body shaming disgusting? yes. but please don’t act like you’d rather be fat.
……Actually I have cried my eyes out in a dressing room because the smallest size doesn’t fit. I’ve been rejected because “Real men don’t want a bag of bones” and I “must have an eating disorder” and guys don’t want to deal with that kind of “baggage”. ALL BODY SHAMING IS DISGUSTING. FULL STOP.
