“They were great men, with huge flaws , and you know what - those flaws almost made them greater”

- Harry Potter about Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape

A very 1945 chat.

A: You took her away and you abandoned me.
G: How can you be so selfish? How can you be that blind? I was running away. They were hunting me, like an animal.
Seriously, I cannot understand how a man so smart isn’t able to see what really happened.
You were the one who abandoned me, Albus. You left our research so you could take care of them. But you know what? You didn’t care about them. You didn’t in the beginning and you don’t now.
You wanted the hallows more than I did, because they would have helped you get rid of them.
You are not that perfect, professor Dumbledore.
You craved the greater good, but you were too coward to fight for it.
A: You left me behind, collecting the broken pieces all by myself. I was there at the funeral. I was the one who buried the coffin. I’ve always been there…
However, you are right, my old friend, I am not a perfect man. I am a coward who has been running away from you since the day she died. I’ve been hiding. As you did before in Godric’s hollow.
I don’t blame you anymore, because I know that those sins are mine too.

(I should write something about them, before I choke into my own feelings).

anonymous asked:

Is it weird that i really liked how spartan Graves/Grindelwalds office was? For me it highlighted some of the differences between Dumbledore & Grindey. D's office is crammed to the gills, feels alive & warm (and sure hes had more time to cram if full but still) whereas Graves' office is cold& hard. they became such different people & i liked how that was sort of shown in their offices. of course depending on how long Grindey has been Graves it could still be Graves' style but still I liked it

My personal opinion is that the office is suited to original!Graves’s taste but yeah you got an interesting point here!

i bet harry potter kept that tiny hungarian horntail from the first triwizard tournament on his bedside table forever

years later lily luna is like “daddy, what is that dragon toy?”

“well, child, it’s a brutal reminder of the time i was forced into the wizard hunger games because dumbledore can’t tell when there’s a death eater working at hogwarts”

  • McGonagall: Sirius Black did what?
  • Pomfrey: I wouldn't let him see Mr. Lupin as he was still resting from last night, I told him that unless he was injured he was not allowed to stay...so he punched himself in the face and told me he was injured.
  • Dumbledore: Well...you have to admire his dedication.
