Dan, Rupert and Emma, and Tom Felton and Devon Murray, especially those kids, when I would have sick children with me on the set they would come straight up to me and start engaging with these kids and take photos with them and ask, ‘What’ve they seen so far? What was their favorite part of the film? What was their favorite part of the day?’” She reminisced about a number of touching memories from the set visits, including a time a young boy got to help direct a scene with Radcliffe in Chamber of Secrets. After the scene, the boy ran up to Radcliffe, threw his arms around him and said, “I love you, Harry.”

“All of us were in tears, the director [Chris Columbus], the cast, the crew, we were all tearing up. But it was such a beautiful moment, and Dan was so sweet with him. That’s the purity of Harry Potter.” […] Jay, a child diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma, was excited to visit the set [of Prisoner of Azkaban], “But what he really wanted was to be in the film, not just visiting. […] I said, ‘Well, we can’t really do that, and you’re already here.’ Alan [Rickman] came over and introduced himself to Jay, and Jay was so happy to meet him. He was really knowledgeable. He was about 15 at the time, and he knew a lot about Alan’s other films, and Jay mentioned to Alan that what he really wanted to do was be in the film.

“Alan looked at me, and he kind of went into his Snape-mode in costume, and said, ‘Why isn’t this child in the film?’ […] Everyone had a good laugh, and Alan took him by the hand and put him into the crowd of kids as they were panning across. […] [Jay] was very happy that Alan did that for him.” — Paula DuPre’ Pesmen on the Cast of Harry Potter [x]

it is so important that remus lupin, in his very first lesson, taught his young students to try and make their biggest fears more palatable with some laughter. it is so important that he made so many students feel safe and confident and free, even when he himself didn’t.
every time i think i cannot love remus any further, i prove myself wrong.

Hogwarts Houses as Good Feeling Things

slytherin:

the crunch of a footstep in freshly fallen snow, putting together the prefect outfit and knowing you look your best, rooms with tall ceilings, perfect eyebrows, standing on balconies, pressed suits, zipping up tall boots

gryffindor:

running out into a rainstorm just to get soaked, dancing to loud music with your best friend, running to clear your mind after a bad day, getting a haircut and feeling light and free, taking a breath of fresh air in the summer, skipping stones

ravenclaw:

setting up your bed as the perfect Netflix fort, the he loves me he loves me not game, perfect long nails with dark polish, crisp powdery pages, crackling fireplaces, writing until your hand cramps up, old castles 

hufflepuff:

getting a hug from that one person, p.j days at school, taking off make up at the end of the day, hiding in a hoodie, stacking up five blankets in the wintertime, telling someone you love them over and over, movies with friends

For all those who fought bravely this day 19 years ago, to those that lived, may they live well and happy, and for those that died, may they rest in peace.
This day is not just to remember those who died, but to remember what they died for.
Love, loyalty, friendships and family stands above all, and to attain happiness there’s a need for sacrifice.
Sometimes, the good die young so the others can live longer. The ones who die for us, live through us.
They will always be in our hearts forever.
I raise my wand to Severus Snape, Fred Weasley, Remus Lupin, Nymphadora Tonks, Colin Creevey, Lavender Brown and the Fallen Fifty.
