eagerly awaiting the next installation

Here's to the ones who grew up with Harry Potter

•You were young when the movies and books first started being made/written
•You eagerly awaited for the next installment even if it took years because then it only meant that when Harry was a year older then so were you
•You went on all those adventures with Harry, Ron, and Hermoine and through those books you felt like you were actually there in Hogwarts
•Whenever Harry or someone did something ridiculous, you felt embarrassed on their behalf
•You experienced growing up with them. Their joys were your joy. Their learning a and revelations were yours too. Their pain was your pain and when times were tough you cried right alongside them
•You always wished you had a Hagrid of your own, but the one in the book was enough for you anyways
•When Hagrid, or Sirius, or Remus praised Harry, or did something to let him know that he was loved, you felt like they were also saying it to you
•You lost a brother too when Fred died
•You learned all those life lessons right alongside Harry
•You learned what it meant to be a friend
-and brave in the face of adversity
-and loyal to what you believe in
-and that not every villain is evil, but have a story of their own and circumstances that give them no choice
-and eventually our childhood ends and we must grow up
•When the books were finished and the movie was over, you still have the rest of us
-the ones who grew up right alongside you
-and we’ll always remember these stories and what they’ve taught us
-and we’ll share that with each other and eventually pass this knowledge onto our own children
-and everyone will always remember the kids who grew up just as much as a part of Hogwarts as the real world and know SOME THINGS AREN’T MEANT TO END
