The Sorcerer's Stone


I promised to do a timelapse of Harry, I also added some quotes from each part, so it makes a bit more sense, because the drawing are pretty old and I didn’t really want to share them.But the work’s done and I thought I’d share this anyways.


Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001) dir. Chris Columbus

A thousand live bats fluttered from the walls and ceiling while a thousand more swooped over the tables in low black clouds, making the candles in the pumpkins stutter.


HARRY POTTER HISTORY MEME: [1] item➝ The Sorcerer’s Stone.

The Philosopher’s Stone was an artificial, rufescent stone with magical properties. It could be used to create the Elixir of Life, which extended the drinker’s lifespan, as well as transform any metal into pure gold. The famed alchemist Nicolas Flamel created the only Philosopher’s Stone which (in 1991) was known to exist. Flamel used the Elixir of Life made from the stone to extend his and his wife Perenelle’s lifespan for over six centuries.

I started rereading Sorcerer’s Stone after The Cursed Child because I apparently have a masochistic streak.  

Now I was never a Draco gal–I appreciated his story and all, but he was a bully and a dramatic idiot and while I understood where his fans came from, I was never into it.

But post-Cursed Child?

All I see is how Draco Malfoy became such a good dad, and a single dad at that after losing his wife, to the nerdiest sunshine child in all of canon.  Draco Malfoy supported his cinnamon roll son in all the universes, burst into the Potter’s home uninvited because Harry’s actions caused his son’s tears, and did all he could to discourage the Voldemort’s son rumors because of how it affected Scorpius, more than how it affected his own reputation.

Like you know what?  You go challenge Harry to a midnight duel for the express purpose of getting him in trouble, ok?  You’re a little asshole now, but you’re going to grow up–you’re going to go through shit and be pressured to do things under threats to your family.  But your mother is going to risk everything for you–stand down Voldemort and lie to his face just to ensure she sees you alive again.  That parental instinct is going to pass down to you and Harry Potter is going to be a thorn in your side for the rest of your life, but you’re never going to forbid your son from being friends with his.

Draco Malfoy, man.  Who would’ve thought?
