Dumbledore: . . .
McGonagall: You do realize that it's November! He might freeze!
Dumbledore: . . .
McGonagall: And not to mention the fact that everyone in the bloody world now knows that he's the one who killed Voldemort. So a bunch of Death Eaters will probably want revenge.

Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. → All was well.


do not pity the dead, harry, pity the living, and above all, those who actually think snape and lily would have been anything like a good couple

top 5 harry moments



  • WALKING TO THE FOREST TO DIE everything from harry waking up in dumbledore’s office to voldemort killing him is just exquisite — harry’s realisation that dumbledore had been grooming him for death and harry being hyperaware of his own body, “brain and nerve and bounding heart” is all so gorgeous and sad and wonderful, and he’s so brave. HE’S SO BRAVE. I’M SO FUCKING SAD IT’S BEEN 7 YEARS
  • destroying dumbledore’s office i love this scene because after 4 books of harry keeping shit to himself and sitting on his feelings you get lots of minor, small explosions post-cedric dying and then THIS, it’s a NUCLEAR BOMB OF ANGER and it’s so satisfying to read but also the most painful thing in the world, ever
  • politely asking the sphinx to move, please this cracks me up every time. if someone was like show me ONE THING that DEFINES harry james potter AS A HUMAN AND A CHARACTER i would show them this scene. life-threatening wizard competition. dangerous magical creature. “can you move, please?” my son
  • torturing amycus after he spit on mcgonagall this means A Lot to me because harry just straight up crucios that fucker without any hesitation or warm-up and puts so much feeling behind it. anything where harry is morally grey is my favourite because he’s The Saviour and the Master of Death and it’s like yeah, and he just crucio’d a dude so hard he flew across the room and passed out
  • "you don’t have to call me ‘sir’, professor" any scene where harry backchats snape is fantastic but i distinctly remember reading this scene and being like OOOHHHH OOOOOHHHH SICK BUUURRNNNN OOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH


James can’t decide if the “Yours” (“She signed it YOURS, Padfoot!”) outweighs the small detail that apparently Remus makes the cut and he doesn’t.

Lily will later claim that she read once people with dragon pox can breathe fire. James not making the cut was simply her own way of protecting his hair from her potential fire-breathing prowess. Secretly it’s also because she doesn’t want him to see how badly the greenish tinge of her skin clashes with her red hair.

"Why are you grinning?"
“I’m not,” said Harry quickly, looking down at his Transfiguration notes and attempting to straighten his face. The truth was that Ron had just reminded Harry forcibly of another Gryffindor Quidditch player who had once sat rumpling his hair under this very tree.

Order of the Phoenix, “O.W.L.s”

That time that Harry looked at Ron and could see James.

"On this film, in part because we didn’t have trailers, we actually all just hung out together in green rooms, we got to know each other in a very different way. Dane DeHaan, certainly, is kind of the best friend I’ve made through acting, in terms of another actor. He’s fantastic." - Dan Radcliffe

"No, I love Dan. Are you kidding me? Dan’s one of my best friends and he’s an amazing person. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with Dan. He’s one of my favourite people in the world" - Dane DeHaan
