Off to the left, we see some awkwardness. To the right, we have Nando telling the young’uns that a retirement is just another Sunday for him. And in the back, we can see…what I threw together because too many drivers retired from the race and I ran out of room/ideas.
I love that this boy who quotes his father, who swings invisible swords, is also this player who is something to see on a broomstick-who wins Quidditch cups, is also the sweetheart who is generally adored by everyone, teachers and parents included, is also the kid who can be a complete berker with a cruel streak, hexing people for fun, is also the love struck boy who doodles the name of the girl he likes in the margins of his notes, dropping his voice an octave in a bid to impress her, who doesn’t have a clue how to act around her, is also the pureblood who doesn’t believe in being prejudiced, the friend who is so capable of love and is extremely loyal and goes to extraordinary lengths to take care of his mates, is also the tall lanky guy with moppy hair who has to push his glasses up the bridge of his nose when he gets sweaty, clean them with the edge of his robes when they get dirty, is also the trouble maker who nicks stuff and makes illegal maps and is generally a ruler breaker, is also the moral person who does the right thing when it counts-like saving his rival’s life, is also the one who grows up, not expecting anyone to save him, who gets appointed head boy without having been a prefect, who probably gets the mickey taken out of him for it but does a good job anyway, is also the teenager who puts his dreams on hold-whatever they may be, to fight in a war because it’s the right thing to do, is also the romantic who has watched his parents love each other and grow old and die and marries his school sweetheart because he wants with her what they had together, is also the soldier who says no who to the darkest wizard of the age over and over and over again, is also the dad who chases his son around all day and plays with him endlessly and goes to extraordinary lengths to protect him, is also the boy who gives up his life to save his family without giving it a second thought.
Can I just say if the new Sleeping With Sirens album doesn’t contain either a) political themed songs and/or b) at least one song that sounds at least somewhat decent if played on a piano then I’m probably gonna go rip up my Kellin poster
