Hedwig didn’t return until the end of the Easter holidays. Percy’s letter was enclosed in a package of Easter eggs that Mrs. Weasley had sent. Both Harry’s and Ron’s were the size of dragon eggs, and full of home-made toffee. Hermione’s, however, was smaller than a chicken’s egg. Her face fell when she saw it. "Your mum doesn’t read Witch’s Weekly, by any chance, does she, Ron?“ she asked quietly. "Yeah,” said Ron, whose mouth was full of toffee. “Gets it for the recipes." Hermione looked sadly at her tiny egg.

just imagine ginny and luna showing up at the yule ball together, though

imagine luna being smiling and radiant ‘cause wow, ginny weasley? asked her to the ball?? how could she get so lucky???

imagine ginny going between being a totally crushing nerd-because-luna-said-yes-omg-her-date-is-luna to glaring at anyone who tries to say anything about her date being a) a girl, and b) ‘loony’ lovegood

imagine ginny ‘formerly possessed by the greatest dark wizard of our age’ weasley and luna ‘i’ve always been able to see the scary death horses’ lovegood dancing together and giggling and being utterly adorable cute little queer girls with each other…

Today we acknowledge a really terrible loss. Cedric Diggory was, as you all know, exceptionally hard working, infinitely fair-minded, and most importantly, a fierce, fierce friend. Therefore, I feel you have the right to know exactly how he died. You see, Cedric Diggory was murdered, by Lord Voldemort. The Ministry of Magic does not wish me to tell you this. But not to do so I feel would be an insult to his memory. Now the pain we all feel at this dreadful loss reminds me, and, reminds us, that though we may come from different countries and speak in different tongues, our hearts beat as one. In light of the recent events, the bonds of friendship made this year will be more important than ever. Remember that, and Cedric Diggory will not have died in vain. You remember that, and we’ll celebrate a boy who was kind, and honest, and brave, and true. Right to the very end.
