“Tell her to get out, a voice inside him demanded. Beg her to stay.”
Dear miss Bardugo! Crooked Kingdom was all I wanted in the past year, I
was literally obsessed with it! I want to thank you from the bottom of
my heart for this duology; both books are so fantastic, I simply have no
words to describe. Thank you for all these amazing characters, and
especially for Kaz and Inej. I don’t think that I will be over these
books any time soon.
more HP reread things: the shit you all knew was coming
the very first instance of Harry looking over at the Slytherin table to have a shufty of Draco Malfoy happens after the sorting, i.e. their VERY FIRST night of school. I cannot BELIEVE this. Harry looks over at the Bloody Baron and is like, “he’s sitting next to Malfoy! and Malfoy’s not happy about it! hahaha!!!” that’s the beginning of a puberty-long rabid obsession right there and I’m getting exceedingly misty.
it may also interest some of you to know that Harry then goes upstairs to Gryffindor Tower, goes to bed AND PROMPTLY STARTS DREAMING ABOUT MALFOY. they’ve only officially known each other for like four hours and Harry’s already having uncomfortable dreams about getting his head stuck in something and Malfoy laughing at him. this is day fucking one.
the first words out of Harry’s mouth when it’s announced that Gryffindor and Slytherin have flying lessons together are “typical. just what I always wanted. to make a fool of myself on a broomstick in front of Malfoy.” WHY is that your FIRST THOUGHT when you find out you’re gonna be FLYING A BROOMSTICK? I’ll give you one clue.
“Harry hadn’t had a single letter since Hagrid’s note, something that Malfoy had been quick to notice, of course.” of course? of course??? it’s normal that this 11-year-old boy has nothing better to do at breakfast than stare across the great hall at someone he hates??? “Draco, can you pass the marmalade?” “silence, Goyle, Potter is cracking his boiled egg!”
Harry goes to meet Draco for a midnight wizard’s duel wearing his pyjamas and a dressing gown. Draco grasses Harry up rather than actually going, but can we all please take a moment to picture his face if he’d been there to witness Harry Potter turning up to this epic death match in tartan terrycloth? thanks for your time.

Everyone’s book will be different because all Witches are different. This list is a bunch of examples I have come across over the years of things you could include in your BOS if you so desired. Nothing on this list is mandatory, nothing here is required. If you don’t know what something is, please feel free to ask! If you don’t think that something on the list is for you, awesome, don’t include it in yours.

“From a golden broom pluck five long straws, Light them as tapers at the fire; Carry them through the house, and cause Their subtle smoke to thicken the air– Then summon good fortune with this spell:
Wraiths of the house, Take heart and live: To every chamber This light I give, To every corner This breath I send– Approve and favor My willing hand
If you would please them doubly well, Sprinkle the floor with leaves of tea And orris powder and grains of salt– Then sweep with the broom, until you are free Each crack and crevice from speck or fault.”
