Something I’ve never noticed before:
Snape not only deflects McGonagall’s attack but uses it to take down Alecto and Amycus in a single armwave behind his visual field. Like they both had their wands out too but BOY they did not see that coming. Snape knew that he needed to get rid of them before being driven out of the castle so that they wouldn’t harm any of the students GOD what a badass motherfucker
UGH MY HEART I LOVE YOU
okay this is pretty cool
Holy damn, this is beast!
When people turn to fictional characters, it’s often because they want an escape. The stories of these people shelter us from the storm of our daily lives; they save us, if only for a little while. But when we really give in, become invested, let ourselves be vulnerable, something changes. We begin to feel that we know them. It’s no longer just an escape, but part of us, something that makes us who we are.
These characters teach us that incredible adversity can be overcome. That people can love each other forever. That life can be an adventure. That magic can be real. And even if these miracles have never happened to us, we begin to go through life believing that, someday, they could.
“And I promise you that you’re important. Don’t look at me like that- in all my 900 years I’ve never met someone who wasn’t important.”
“Cheer up mate, it gets better. Look at me, I was once a little kid living under the stairs. You’ll do fine.”
“Hey. I know it seems like life sucks, that you’ve got the devil on your tail. Hell, sometimes you do. But you’re strong enough to beat him. You’ve got friends at your back and family too, and that’s what really counts in the end.”
“Don’t be silly, they’re wrong about you; of course you matter. You’ve always mattered.”
WOW CONGRATS YOU JUST MADE ME CRY OVER MY OWN POST
She never asks questions. Remember the time Hermione turned into a cat? She made sure no one saw her. She regrew a whole arm’s worth of bones in one night. She can mend bones in a second. She even kicks out Dumbledore on some occasions. Just think about how many students get injured in Hogwarts every year and she just fixes them back up like new.
We all just need to take a second and thank Madam Pomfrey.
So, racebent Hermione. But, you wanna know a secret? The first time I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone?
I thought Hermione was black. Or, well, at the very least of mixed ancestry. It was, I think, the description of her hair, mostly, what did it for me. The whole bushy thing? My thirteen years old brain translated that Hermione was black.
And it seemed AMAZING to me and so obvious. Like, blatantly obvious when in Chamber of Secrets she gets called Mudblood and she doesn’t get it until Ron and Hagrid explain it. SO COOL. I liked when there were dark skinned characters. And this? This was the brightest, smartest girl in Hogwarts. How awesome was that?
For me Hermione was a black girl, thin and precocious, huge eyes and unruly impossible to tame hair.
And then she wasn’t. Movies started coming out, Emma was cast as Hermione, I shrugged my mental picture off.
But it’s still there, I think. Since the last books came after the movies, I read them with a white Hermione in mind, but I wonder if it’ll be the same thing, was I to reread the first books.
it’s even better than that because he’s trying to protect trevor’s ears instead of his own XD I love you neville<3
#and ron is so badass he doesn’t even need to cover his ears #he’s all like ya’ll mad?
Ron is used to it because Percy loves to sing in the shower.
but omfg the knight in the background is all like wHO DARE COMES TO ATTACK ME
that’s is sir cadogan
The Harry Potter fandom is so huge that literally everyone has different views and opinions on characters, ships, theories etc, but I don’t think I have ever in my life encountered a Harry Potter fan who doesn’t hate Umbridge with burning passion.
Its good because it makes us unite against a common enemy.
Its strange that the common enemy isn’t the series’s main villain.
19 Years Later-Harry Potter
oh my god, oh my god.
I FOUND IT. I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS FOREVER.
Just close your eyes….
