“If we face the Dementors in fiction, we are far more equipped to face them in real life.”-J.K. Rowling
“My childhood consisted of more paperback books and pixels than people. I would spend hours under covers, face illuminated by flashlight, escaping into dragon lairs and spider infested forests, donned in crimson and gold instead of crooked glasses and hand-me-downs. I remember reading at a grey park bench during recess, pretending to preoccupy myself on the days when my classmates would create secret clubs and I wasn’t allowed to know the password. In my world, the word outcast did not exist. It was a place where there were spaces at every table and all forms of magic were welcome. When I was thirteen, my best friends were the school librarians and my science teacher, they showed me that the passion for knowledge and the desire to dream were things to not be ashamed of. Nerds learned to defend themselves against darkness for a reason: there were ways to make the years of torment vanish, it was just that wands didn’t work in this alternate universe. Fantasy taught us how to fight, but also how to forgive, even after the spells have been broken.”
