harry potter and the goblet of fire

i bet harry potter kept that tiny hungarian horntail from the first triwizard tournament on his bedside table forever

years later lily luna is like “daddy, what is that dragon toy?”

“well, child, it’s a brutal reminder of the time i was forced into the wizard hunger games because dumbledore can’t tell when there’s a death eater working at hogwarts”

ron’s jealousy as a character trait really interest me because the narrative gives so many valid reasons why he might feel that way

i mean, just look at the yule ball robes thing as an example. ron gets shitty hand downs, while harry can afford proper ones, and ron kinda resents harry for that a bit

he’s jealous of harry because harry has the opportunity to have so many more things than he does, because harry is loaded and also has a newtork of adults who pity him and will give him things, and while ron might intellectually understand that, it wouldn’t stop him from feeling a little upset by it

and i just think that’s interesting
