Can we appreciate the fact that Gilderoy Lockhart had a selfie of himself painting a selfie of himself while looking at himself.
I can’t believe I never saw a post on tumblr about Lockhart with this quote.
Celebrity is as celebrity does. Remember that.

Harry Potter Etymology | Gilderoy Lockhart
GILDEROY: A highwayman known for being handsome. May also come from the word “gilded,” which is defined as having a “pleasing, showy appearance, which covers something of little worth.” This is very fitting considering Gilderoy’s supposed good looks covered up the truth about his inability to function as a powerful wizard. The name “Roy” is Old French for “regal one” or “king.”
LOCKHART: Lockhart is a world renowned cognitive psychologist whose particular interest is in the study of memory and levels of processing. He did a lot of research in this area in the late 1970s. Town in Australia near Wagga Wagga (“Compose a poem about my defeat of the Wagga Wagga Werewolf”?). A possible play on words as he seems to have so many women’s “heart locked” on him.
I am done now.
