The sad moment when you find out on pottermore what your patronus is and it doesn’t make you happy at all - how can that be, I am a Slytherin girl with the perfect “I-am-taking-over-the-world”-laugh, got a great wand with an unicorn hair core & all I got is a bloodhound? Like for real? I wanted all the drama like black swans, wolves & snakes - not a dog, I don’t even like dogs. A rock or something would have been cool though.
“but in the end, Harry and his two friends got all the credit, with Snape getting set on fire in the process. Charming.”
“Of course, when he had to take over Lupin’s lesson, he may have accidentally taught his class how to spot a werewolf, but that was a complete coincidence.”
“Finally, everything’s coming up Severus!”
“Cometh the hour, cometh the Severus.”
“Dumbledore assigned Snape yet another task, and it may have been Snape’s biggest mission yet: to hang out with Harry Potter.”
“Despite all his efforts, everyone still thought he was the worst.”
“Say what you will about the Potions master, we can all agree that he’s no fool.”
“In other words, Snape tried to save Harry’s life, and the only thanks he got was being set on fire. Harsh.”
“As children, Harry, Ron and Hermione had looked at the sarcastic and strict Professor Snape as something of a pantomime villain – the bitter Potions master, stewing in the dungeons. As adults, they learn Snape is far more complex.”
“Snape has taught us that there are no good men and bad men, that we are born full of foibles, and complexities and painted in thousands of different shades.”
“The Slytherin common room was a long, low underground room with rough stone walls and ceiling, from which round, greenish lamps were hanging on chains. A fire was crackling under an elaborately carved mantelpiece ahead of them.”
“Our common room lies behind a concealed entrance down in the dungeons. As you’ll see, its windows look out into the depths of the Hogwarts lake. We often see the giant squid swooshing by – and sometimes more interesting creatures. We like to feel that our hangout has the aura of a mysterious, underwater shipwreck.”
J'aimerais que tu m'écoutes attentivement : tu n'es pas quelqu'un de mauvais. Tu es quelqu'un de bon, à qui il est arrivé de mauvaises choses. Tu as compris ? Et puis, dans le monde, il n'y a pas d'un côté les bons et de l'autre les [méchants], il y a une part de lumière et d'ombre en chacun de nous. Celle qui compte, c'est celle que l'on choisit de montrer dans nos actes. Ça, c'est ce que l'on est vraiment.
Rita Skeeter has been taken unaccountably ill with what some are calling a jinx to the solar plexus. As celebrations continue here in the Patagonian Desert, we at the Daily Prophet sincerely hope that you have enjoyed our World Cup coverage from Argentina. Next week, the National Gobstones League comes to Birmingham! But in all honesty… don’t bother.
Ginny Potter, BGR vs BRA - J.K. Rowling
I love how nonchalant Ginny is after she’s just jinxed a lying and bitchy Rita at the 2014 QWC final. She’s so casual about reporting it in the article.
I wonder if Ginny is more diplomatic about Gobstones once she becomes the Sports Editor of the Daily Prophet.
