Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Chapter 8 The Potions Master
“Snape finished calling the names and looked up at the class. His
eyes were black like Hagrid’s, but they had none of Hagrid’s warmth.
They were cold and empty and made you think of dark tunnels.
“You are here to learn the subtle science and exact art of
potionmaking,” he began. He spoke in barely more than a whisper, but
they caught every word – like Professor McGonagall Snape had the gift of keeping a
class silent without effort. “As there is little foolish wand-waving
here, many of you will hardly believe this is magic. I don’t expect you
will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with
its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through
human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses…. I can teach
you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death – if you aren’t
as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach.”
Oh HEY Snape. This chapter has been my favorite thus far I hope everyone enjoys it!
It’s real irritating watching a show grow so much from its first season only to be bashed and torn down by its “fans” for not being a master piece.
The animation, the writing, the story itself have come so far. Having watched it since volume 1 came out, I feel like I’m watching my child grow up. And I’m so happy that the show is becoming more popular.
At the same time it also breaks my heart. People don’t seem to realize the amount of time and effort that go into creating something like this. This show that started out as a side project for rooster teeth.
With every new episode this volume, it’s like all people want to do is find any kind of flaw and create this blown out of proportion discourse.
It’s not perfect and that’s ok. you can criticize the show and it’s writers all you want. If you’re not satisfied with what you’re watching either stop watching or (as my papa likes to remind me) go make your own thing.
I’m a firm believer that there is always room for improvement. But I also think that when it comes to art of any kind, some times you just have to appreciate it for what it was and what it is.
Shout out to Rooster Teeth and CRWBY. I love you guys.
