|HP Canon question
||[Jan. 14th, 2014|04:37 am]
So, I wondered if anyone here knows to what extent Dumbledore/Grindelwald is "canon."
In canon-canon -- like actual what-it-says-in-the-book canon, there is nothing that states or explicitly implies that Dumbledore is gay (or was involved or in love with Gellert.) From canon, we do know that they were friends and Dumbledore was fascinated with Gellert (although, not explicitly in any way which wasn't platonic). In an interview, JKR says that Dumbledore is gay (thus making de facto canon because that's how HP fandom functions).
What I want to know is: did JKR ever say that Dumbledore was "in love" with Gellert or they had something going on or is that just fandom putting 2 and 2 together as always?
