hermione granger the smartest witch of her age
hermione granger who in book two figured out that the thing turning kids into stone and killing other kids off was a giant fucking snake living in the secret fucking basement AND NO ONE HAD DISCOVERED IT IN A THOUSAND YEARS
hermione granger who was so smart and so studious that she traveled back and forth in time to learn everything she could about a world she’d never known about, and that itself was torn apart over whether to treat her as one of their own or as scum
hermione granger who at fourteen discovered and trapped an illegally shapeshifting adult with considerable media sway and blackmailed her remorselessly
hermione granger who at fifteen decided to forge her own brand of justice with cool-headed cunning and subtle leadership “here’s what we have to do to protect ourselves,” she murmurs, drafting plans and strategies, when the law is useless you write your own, as harry takes the lead
hermione granger who was thrown into a world where people like her were reviled and persecuted at the tender age of eleven but learned all its tricks and whims, its secrets and deepest thoughts, who cut it open with the keen knife of intelligence and discipline and learned how to pluck each nerve and make it sing for her

Can you imagine Harry going to kindergarten and James having to go to the parent-teacher meeting on his own because Lily had to work?
James walks in and he’s surrounded by middle-aged men, some with receding hairlines, some completely bald, some with pot bellies and others with beards and shirts tucked into their slacks.
And then there’s James in jeans and converse shoes with a band t-shirt and leather jacket with a full head of black messy hair because he’s 25 damn it and he doesn’t need to start wearing slacks and button down shirts yet.
And everyone silently thinks that he must be a lazy or uncaring father but then Harry walks in like, “Hi Dad!!!” and runs to hug his father and James has THE BIGGEST SMILE on his face and he picks Harry up and hugs him and later Harry’s talking to his classmates and they’re like “Wow Harry your dad’s so cool.” And Harry just thinks, “Wait till I tell then he can turn into a stag.”
Sorry, I think about these things.
your house will be something like your family within Hogwarts
"The girl gave off an aura of distinct dottiness. Perhaps it was the fact that she had stuck her wand behind her left ear for safekeeping, or that she had chosen to wear a necklace of butterbeer caps, or that she was reading a magazine upside down."
my headcanon sirius has a magic tattoo of a moon on his upper left shoulder and it changes to match the phase of the moon so he never forgets even in azkaban bye
this is the worst thing to ever happen to me
#comforting and praising a bird as he’s dying so it doesnt feel bad #how do people hate you bb
People who hate Harry Potter missed the a giant part of the story. Despite being abused by his aunt, uncle and cousin his whole life Harry was kind, compassionate, loyal, protective and honest. He defended those who needed it and stood up to those who deserved it. He didn’t become bitter or hateful. And he spent his life trying to protect others. You can’t hate him because people chose to stand by him even if it meant they’d die. He didn’t want that, he wanted everyone to live even if it meant he couldn’t anymore.
It’s so difficult to describe [depression] to someone who’s never been there, because it’s not sadness. I know sadness. Sadness is to cry and to feel. But it’s that cold absence of feeling — that really hollowed-out feeling. That’s what Dementors are. - J.K Rowling
The thing that hurts me the most about Sirius and Harry is that when they looked at each other they were both hoping to see James
killing is not so easy as the innocent believe
It does not do to dwell on dreams, Harry, and forget to live.
how many Hogwarts students does it take to change a light-bulb?
1 Slytherin to break it
1 Gryffindor to volunteer to climb the ladder and change it
3 Hufflepuffs to hold the ladder and insure the safety of the Gryffindor student
and 1 Ravenclaw to point out that they could have just used magic
