20 Years of Harry Potter

Today, it has been twenty years since Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was first published in the UK. 

I’ll admit that the only knowledge I had of this book at the time was as a result of JK Rowling reading an extract from the book on the British TV Show, Blue Peter. I was 14 and, at the time, had no interest in reading beyond what was expected of me at school. 

Five years, three books and one movie later, I finally let my curiosity get the better of me. I had just turned 19, my life was a mess and had no direction.

One night I was at my dad’s house where he lived with his girlfriend and her children and there, in the living room, was a copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Out of curiosity, I picked up the book and started reading. It only took one chapter and I was hooked. I had never read anything so compelling before and I just had to find out more about the baby who had been left on the doorstep of a Muggle family in the middle of the night.

I went to the library the next day and borrowed all four books that had been released at that point. For the next four days, all I did was read (I had no job, nor I was at school). This was a miracle as it usually took me several months to read just one book. I was completely in love with these books to the point I wanted to read them again. I never did return those books to the library!

The book in the photo is not the copy from the library. I think I threw that out in the end due to how damaged it was. The copy in the photo is the one my dad brought me for Christmas 2002. The funny thing is my dad constantly moans that I am way too obsessed with Harry Potter, but at the end of the day, it is thanks to him I discovered the series. I think he really needs to stop complaining now!

Now, my poor husband isn’t as big a fan of the series as me. In fact, he has never read the books. Despite that though, one of our first dates was going to the cinema to see Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. He has put with my growing obsession over the years, going to the cinema with me, going to the midnight launches of the books, and dealing with my constant need to go and see Cursed Child. 

He really is the best husband as when Deathly Hallows was released, he went to the midnight launch local to us to collect my copy. I was heavily pregnant with our third child at the time and he didn’t want me travelling into the town centre by myself. So he went and I watched the midnight reading JKR did online! 

Funny random thing about me, every time I have been pregnant with one of my children, a book or movie has released. My eldest three happen to also be the same ages as Harry and Ginny’s children! When Albus boards to train Hogwarts this coming September, my eldest boy, my second child will be getting ready to begin secondary school as well!

These books helped me get through those dark days I endured before I met my husband. These books also helped me develop the love of reading I never had during my childhood, something I shall be forever grateful for. 

What I love most about these books though, is the message of love throughout them, how powerful it can be and how it can change your life for the better. Something we all know happened to Harry and something I know happened to me when I met my husband. 

someone tomorrow: bru-
me:

bruno mars? peter gene hernandez? born october 8th 1985? my lil dad? lil father? lil man? whom i love with his whole 3'2 tall ass? whom i would die for? n take a 24k gold bullet for? every day? For 24 days? Every day week month year and century?
For me, all I’m going to focus on is to make sure I don’t treat her any differently. I don’t want her to grow up thinking that her gender makes a difference… I want her to be a good person and make good choices, but I don’t want to push her in a direction that I want her to go. But I do want her to feel like her gender doesn’t limit what direction she can go.

Wedding Sabotage au Feat. Laurent and Nik teaming up

This is an outline of like????,,, one scene and yep lemme kno if u actaully would want this bc lmaoo……*wears sunglasses to hide the tears*

  • Auguste and Damen grew up together as friends and had brought the families together after a long time of low-key petty rivalry. Laurent grew up with Damen but was much younger than both Damen and Auguste. Damen had all the qualities of a hero from his books (that and he was *que 11 year old blushing smaurent* “super pretty”). Well this crush never went away, to Laurent’s dismay, because he knew Damen would always see him as a little kid.
  • Laurent was 19, turning 20, and finally going to try and tell Damen his feelings. To which gets stopped dead in his tracks when he comes home and Damen is there, sweetly tipsy with a beautiful blonde on his arm.
  • Laurent is very bitter, and after two years he is, how do you say, extremely bitter.
  • Laurent is at the engagement party for Damen and Jokaste.
  • He is standing next to Auguste, in a circle of party goers who are all celebrating and congratulating Damen
  • Laurent is in a particularly foul mood
  • Nikandros who is also in this small circle of “assholes” (as he would put it) he is also a very bitter best friend
  • Anyways Damen leaves to go find Jokaste (she walked away to talk to other guests or something) and he kisses Laurent on the cheek before leaving and drags Auguste with him
  • Laurent’s mood worsens,,,, he gotta fight w someone and Nik is the closest victim
  • Ahh Nik and Laurent what a relationship they have had
