this means so much to me. so much
harry didn’t get birthday gifts growing up
the weasleys taught him about the wizarding world
the weasleys gave him a coming-of-age gift that traditionally comes from your parents
the weasleys gave him a family heirloom
the weasleys made me cry
#I can’t believe they cut this #this was such an important moment in the series Dudley has tormented Harry all his life and has possibly been one of the most cruel people Harry has even encountered and here he is apologizing in the only way he can and Harry is accepting it #I cried when this happened because two boys that lived together throughout the majority of their lives thus far that hated each other put aside their differences knowing yet not admitting that they might never see each other again because it was highly likely one of them would die
There are two kinds of people
ok. i’m going to give you an analogy.
harry potter : me :: the bible : a devout christian
let me explain.
there are no ~feelings~ involved. i accept harry potter canon as The Truth. there is room for interpretation, sure, and for extrapolation if you choose. you are free to draw your own conclusions and explore your own beliefs. but the written word is law. there is no feeling, besides feeling filled with grace and light and joy (and also feelings of judgment and hellfire-damnation towards those who haven’t read it).
with that said, the epilogue was Okay.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Original Book + J. K. Rowling’s Notes
The three different kinds of exam takers.I like how it’s WHAT *PERIOD (.)….not Question Mark (?)
Ron Weasley gives free ice cream to kids. Harry Potter talks about the importance of feminism and gay rights. Hermione Granger is a UN Goodwill Ambassador for Women.
The heroes of my childhood became the heroes of my adulthood.
Harry was the favorite kid and he wasn’t even an official part of the family
Because Molly knows exactly how the Dursleys treat him. There’s no way Ron wouldn’t tell her. And Molly Weasley is a Mother. She gets a capital M because she is goddamn phenomenal at what she does. When she hears Harry Potter is on the train to Hogwarts in Book 1, her reaction isn’t to be starstruck. It’s to say “that poor dear had to come here all on his own.” Molly Weasley loves harder than anyone. She loves like it’s her sole reason for being. And when she hears there’s a poor boy who has never known love his whole life… how could she not?
I love it how when Snape draws out his wand there are audible gasps but when Mcgonagall draws her wand there people are screaming out of the way.
They just know better.
damn snape is piss-OH MOTHERFUCKING SHIT, MOVE OUT, CLEAR THE WAY, MCGONAGALL IS PISSED.
I will stop reblogging this when it stops being awesome.
I fucking loved this. I was a little disappointed because I liked the book version of this scene is my favorite in the series but this was alright too
I just know that the first weeks after Harry was born Sirius would sneak in their house after they went to bed and go sleep on the floor next to Harry as Padfoot, and that whenever Harry started to wake up and cry Sirius would pick him up and calm him so he wouldn’t wake his parents.
Lily and James just thought Harry was a very easy baby.
do you ever think that oliver wood was created for the sole purpose of innuendo
even his name is an innuendo
It gets even better when you realize the actor’s name was Sean Biggerstaff.
