happy birthday, hermione granger. thank you for not just being a role model, but also for showing me that “try-hard,” “nerd,” and “overachiever” are NEVER insults if you own them.
when they inevitably remake harry potter in like 30 years time i hope they cast tom felton as lucius
And just as a reminder, Hermione is 14 years old here.
[Hermione’s teeth] had now grown down past her collar. Pansy Parkinson and the other Slytherin girls were doubled up with silent giggles, pointing at Hermione from behind Snape’s back.
Snape looked coldly at Hermione, then said, “I see no difference.”
Hermione let out a whimper; her eyes filled with tears, she turned on her heel and ran, ran all the way up the corridor and out of sight.
Do you ever think about thirteen years old Harry who just found out like twenty minutes ago that the man he thought got his parents killed is actually innocent and loved his parents so much and wants to already move in with this man?
He is so desperate for love and affection and a family that he wants to move in with a guy who until twenty minutes ago was considered an enemy.
Or about Sirius Black who just saw his godson in person for the first time in twelve years and all he wants to do is to live the life that he should have lived with him. To move in with him, and love him like he would have done all those years if he wasn’t locked away. To be a father to him like he promised his best friend he would. He lived twelve years in a place where they literally suck your happiness out of you- and all he wants is a happy life with the boy who should have could him uncle pads.
They are so desperate for a family and in such a great need for one another so for the short ten minutes after Sirius asked Harry to move in they both get to imagine the happy life that they finally will share.
Only for it to be taken away from them immediately.
