“Are you sure that’s a real spell?” said the girl. “Well, it’s not very good, is it? I’ve tried a few simple spells just for practice and it’s all worked for me. Nobody in my family’s magic at all, it was ever such a surprise when I got my letter, but I was ever so pleased, of course, I mean, it’s the very best school of witchcraft there is, I’ve heard–I’ve learned all our course books by heart, of course, I just hope it will be enough–I’m Hermione Granger, by the way, who are you?”

having grown up with the HP series, i have said on multiple occasions that i am hermione granger. it’s no coincidence that we’ve never been in the same room, and i too am a magical bossy know-it-all with big hair who’s smart in school.

but now…now it’s OFFICIAL. and here are the pics to prove it~

A Scenario I Posed to My Brother
  • Me:Hey, you're in the Computer Club, right?
  • Bro:Yeah?
  • Me:All right, imagine this - the school is holding a year-long fundraiser, and the club that raises the most money wins a trip to Disneyland.
  • Bro:Awesome!
  • Me:So at the end of the year, everyone in the school gathers together in the gym or auditorium or cafeteria or wherever--
  • Bro:Uh-huh...
  • Me:And the principal announces the winners. "In fourth place, with $312 raised, the Football Team!"
  • Bro:Ha ha!
  • Me:"In third place with $352, the Art Club!"
  • Bro:Yuh-huh...
  • Me:"In second, with $426, the Physics Club!"
  • Bro:'Kay...
  • Me:"And in first place, with a total of $472 - The Computer Club!"
  • Bro:Bitchin'!
  • Me:But wait! The principal continues -- "I have a surprise announcement, everyone! I've decided to make a few last-minute donations."
  • Bro:Come again?
  • Me:"To the Head Cheerleader, I donate $50."
  • Bro:Wait, are the cheerleaders involved?
  • Me:She's for the Football team.
  • Bro:Ah...
  • Me:"On behalf of the Running Back, I donate another $50."
  • Bro:Where are you going with this?
  • Me:"To the Quarterback, I donate $60!"
  • Bro:Wait, doesn't that mean--
  • Me:"And to the Towel Boy, I give $10. That's a grand total of $482. THE FOOTBALL TEAM WINS THE TRIP TO DISNEYLAND!"
  • Me:That's basically what happened at the end of the first Harry Potter

According to the Telegraph this rare prop will be up for grabs at the London Antiquarian Book Fair:

Harry Potter fans will love this prop from the first film; an envelope containing an invitation to attend Hogwarts school, sealed with wax. Admittedly, there’s a few of these missives about – the film features a scene in which the boy wizard is besieged with them – but most only had printed seals, so they could “fly” around the room more easily. It’s yours for 3,750 GBP from Adrian Harrington.
