On Sunday, a Reddit user posted an interesting Harry Potter fan theory on the ShowerThoughts thread:
“Harry Potter isnt a nerd, he is a jock. He didnt try very hard in school, cheated on homework constantly, was a sports star, and ended up joining the police/military.”
We’ve always seen the titular character as a nerd type, maybe because of his glasses and awkward demeanor. But the more we think about it, the more we agree that Harry may be different than we saw him on first glance.
One user argued that Harry was only a “nerd” in the first book, writing, “It’s actually the whole purpose to show him basically being the weird kid in the muggle world, but basically a hero in the real world. It is indeed a weird shower thought as the whole intent there is to show that there opened up a world where he isn’t the weird nerdy guy.”
