the one shot in the sorcerer’s stone movie when oliver wood lets the snitch go bothers me so much because while harry’s looking at the snitch darting back and forth, wood is doing the same thing but looking a completely different direction, like they told sean biggerstaff and daniel radcliffe to imagine the snitch zipping around but didn’t confirm where
in terms of moments that just really got me… probably the flashback, when he talks about his past. either that or the moment in one of the live shows, where they’re about to ‘die’ and he says the line about having lost a lot, and having found a new family and being sad about losing them ;o;
in terms of, like, magnus FEATS, tbh probably when he ate the fucking sorcerer’s stone, i lost my shit at that part omfg.
OH WAIT NO Y’KNOW WHAT, the entire section with him at the end of the Rockport Limited arc, both when he phantom fists that crab out of the wall and whack it with a chair and also the part where he’s on the rope and he fucking physics the FUCK out of things and knocks the flesh monster back into the car and it was rad as hell and i love him
okay so that’s more than one moment but.. they’re all the best… bc magnus is the best//
I went to an orchestra concert of The Sorcerer’s Stone and i didn’t really know what it would entail, but it was hp related so i was game. Turns out they play the score live while the entire movie plays. I hadn’t seen this movie in years and all the emotions just hit me like a ton of bricks! Good lord I forgot how much Harry Potter - My Favorite Son - meant to me.
CHRISTMAS AT HOGWARTS
“Christmas was coming. One morning in mid-December, Hogwarts woke to find itself covered in several feet of snow. The lake froze solid and the Weasley twins were punished for bewitching several snowballs so that they followed Quirrell around, bouncing off the back of his turban.
The few owls that managed to battle their way through the stormy sky to deliver post had to be nursed back to health by Hagrid before they could fly off again. No one could wait for the holidays to start. While the Gryffindor common room and the Great Hall had roaring fires, the draughty corridors had become icy and a bitter wind rattled the windows in the classrooms.”
