My favorite Harry Potter character was the Sorting Hat. His job was to learn people’s secrets and then judge them.
“If you pay attention, there is a very important scene in the Room of Requirement when the fire is personified in each Hogwarts House. This shows that every House has two sides. Good and evil.” — David Yates
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.
MAKE WAY FOR MCGONAGALL.
The last day of Harry Potter.
The pure fact that this doesn’t even need a title or a description or anything speaks volumes. I mean look at the number of notes this has. There are so few people who don’t recognize it. And the song itself just gives you chills. It’s so magical.

Harry is the best hope we have. Trust him.
A lot of people when they talk about why they love Neville talk about his bravery, which is something I admire in him too, but my favourite thing about Neville is how passionate he gets about herbology. In the very early books, Neville get’s upset at that fact he struggles academically, but once he discovers his love for herbology, he starts getting a lot more confident [confidence that ended up helping The Order win the war!] because he’s found something he loves and is good at. He doesn’t mind so much when he gets poor marks in potions, because he totally aced herbology and came first in the year! Neville doesn’t care that herbology isn’t considered “cool” because he knows what he loves and what is important to him and it makes him super happy and that makes me happy. Happy Birthday Neville!
You are protected, in short, by your ability to love! The only protection that can possibly work against the lure of power like Voldemort’s! In spite of all the temptation you have endured, all the suffering, you remain pure of heart, just as pure as you were at the age of eleven, when you stared into a mirror that reflected your heart’s desire, and it showed you only the way to thwart Lord Voldemort, and not immortality or riches.
