Me before Fantastic Beasts movie: I like how Ron and Harry add little comments to the book, it’s so like them, and it adds a comedic touch to what is, although an interesting read, rather a dry one. Haha, I can so imagine them being bored in class and doodling - this old Newt Scamander dude really did drag on a bit when he was writing this.

In which a Gryffindor takes interest in a different crowd
The red and gold of the Gryffindor uniform is a stark contrast to the cooler colours of the other houses, a boisterous warmth in the September chill.
Floating candles illuminate the hall, the charmed ceiling painting the clear night sky above. The Slytherin table on the far side of the hall talk amongst themselves, glancing occasionally at the people around them, judgement in their eyes. Next to them, the Ravenclaws discuss anything and everything, their vast knowledge ranging on everything from sports to politics, from potion making to recent news articles. The next table along belongs to the Hufflepuffs, the members smiling at one another, involving everyone who wants to talk in their conversations. Finally, the Gryffindors chat avidly amongst themselves, their loud voices rising above the rest of the school, red and gold uniforms flourishing in the candle light with the large gestures they make to emphasise their points.
They could’ve made an excellent and emotional scene by sticking to the books and showing Sirius Black finding two of the people he loved most in the world dead, and their baby crying. They could’ve shown how much Sirius loved them, how he begged Hagrid to get to look after Harry for them.
But no, they HAD to give that scene to Severus Snape, completely ignoring James and Harry and creepily crying over Lily.
“I got on with Louis from the word go. We’re very similar and I like the fact that he has the ability to be nice to everyone while living totally for the moment. It puts a smile on your face when you see someone like that.
I feel i can tell him anything, and I felt like that straight away.”
