July 31, 1980;
“Harry, don’t go picking a row with Malfoy, don’t forget, he’s a prefect now, he could make life difficult for you…” “Wow, I wonder what it’d be like to have a difficult life?” said Harry sarcastically.
I’ve read the Harry Potter series 9 times and am currently on my 10th re read and when people ask me why I keep going back, I tell that that I love the series, not for the action ad adventure (although that part is great) but I keep going back for the day to day life at Hogwarts. I just love the classes and the homework and what they have for lunch that Tuesday after DADA and how many points Snape subtracts for Neville making his potion wrong.
(Tech’s note: literally why HBP is my fave book, it’s mostly filler and I love that)
He felt his heart pounding fiercely in his chest. How strange that in his dread of death, it pumped all the harder, valiantly keeping him alive. But it would have to stop, and soon. Its beats were numbered… Why had he never appreciated what a miracle he was?
As a devout Hufflepuff I see a weird perspective on things since we were almost nonpresent in the books. The hufflepuff, even though they have no direct connection to Harry, stay with him and aside from Gryffindor have the most students stay to fight. We are like that nice girl/guy in the hallway who always says hi and calls you a friend even though you just might think of us as a passing acquaintance.
“The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches… born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies… and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not… and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives… the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies….”
Happy Birthday Harry James Potter, the hero of our childhood.
It seems as if a lot of people think that a Ravenclaw equals someone who thinks that you are better because you are smart. I personally think that the love of learning and the curiosity for new knowledge are what makes a Ravenclaw a Ravenclaw, no matter how smart they are! And we should all remember that not all smart people are Ravenclaws!
I am a Slytherin, and I confess that I made a fake account in Pottermore and get sorted into Ravenclaw on purpose of make duels, and that Slytherin house wins points. Just because Ravenclaw was our biggest competition.
