Okay but imagine when Credence is sad or scared, Newt does the patronus charm to try and cheer him up. Imagine the magical animal running around Credence and Credence watching its every move with amazement, a massive smile on his face. Credence then starts asking Newt loads of questions like how is he doing that? If he learnt magic would he be able to do that? Is the animal always the same? And Newt sits down and answers every single question that Credence has to ask and the entire time Credence doesn’t stop smiling.
And then when Credence finally learns magic Newt teaches him the spell. The patronus charm would be Credence’s favourite spell because it means he has a little animal (I feel like Credence’s patronus would be something like a badger or otter or platypus) always there to protect him and whenever Credence is sad or scared he performs the spell because his animal makes him feel safe and happy!
So I took the patronus quiz and got a St Bernard. I was expecting something a bit more exciting, so I of course made a new account and retook the quiz. Guess what? I got a St Bernard again. I suppose that’s that - I’m a doge
A Christmas commission for a client. Whilst i like aspects of this a lot, he wanted a screen-shot replica scene from the prisoner of azkaban with snape instead of Harry. I dont think it came out too badly, but i would have preferred a more dynamic pose/setting for a similar image. Still! the client loved it and thats the best reaction
I just realized of something. In the Order of the Phoenix one of the most frustrasting things about Sirius’ death is that we cannot have his body to say goodbye. He just disappears without leaving a trace.
Now, in an interview where JK Rowling talked about her mother, she said that she never saw her body when they were in her funeral, and that she always has regretted that.
JK rowling always has said that there are the paralles between Harry Potter and her life, and I especially love the fact that she finds herself in Hermione and one of her friends from adolescence inspired Ron. But this is a situation of her life, and that broke my heart.
There’s a reason, then, why Sirius’ death was the one that hurt us the most, at least to me, and it’s because it’s the one that in a way represents the death of her mother. James and Lily died when Harry was really young so he never felt it for real, and even if he remembers a bit, he has repressed it, as we saw when he was practicing the Patronus charm with professor Lupin. But Harry saw Sirius leaving. He saw when Bellatrix killed him, when she attacked him with the killing curse, so this death felt different for him, it felt real, in the flesh.
Sirius crossing the veil is Jo’s mother leaving her.
This ancient and mysterious charm conjures a magical guardian, a projection of all your most positive feelings. The Patronus Charm is difficult, and many witches and wizards are unable to produce a full, corporeal Patronus, a guardian which generally takes the shape of the animal with whom they share the deepest affinity. You may suspect, but you will never truly know what form your Patronus will take until you succeed in conjuring it.
The Patronus is most famous and one of the most powerful defensive charms known to wizard-kind. The aim is to produce a silvery-white guardian or protector, which takes the form of an animal. The exact form of the Patronus will not be apparent until the spell has been successfully cast.
261. After Hagrid was allowed to get a new wand Harry helped to teach him the Patronus charm. Everyone expected Hagrid to have a terrifying monster for a Patronus, like Fluffy or Norberta. Instead Hedwig burst out of his wand. Hagrid tearfully explained to Harry, "I'm the one that bought 'er for you, and sometimes I feel like it's me fault she's not around anymore. I know how much you loved her." Harry smiled and hugged Hagrid, and then thanked him for letting him see his owl again.
my patronus would be Gordon Ramsey and he’d come out of my wand looking at the dementors screaming like ‘YOU FROZE EVERYTHING LOOK AT WHAT YOU FUCKIN DID IT’S UNDERCOOKED, ALL THE FOOD IS RUINED’ and the dementors would just cry and glide away slowly thinking about what they did
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban → Classes
There are a variety of classes taught at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. These include both the core curriculum and the electives, available from third year forward. In the fifth year, students take the Ordinary Wizarding Level (O.W.L.) exams to determine whether they can achieve a score high enough to continue to N.E.W.T.-level (Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Test) for the class in the remaining two years. Some classes, including the core classes, may be dropped in sixth year. Even though students cannot apply for Time-Turners to take more classes than are able to fit in the timetables, a student’s head of house may suggest a Time-Turner to an individual on very rare occasions. All students do, however, have a choice to drop courses if they become a burden (aside from the essential classes).
