  • Hermione [reading aloud]: "If you bite it and you die; it's poisonous. If it bites you and you die; it's venomous"
  • Ron: What if it bites me and it dies?
  • Hermione: That means you’re poisonous.
  • Harry: What if it bites itself and I die?
  • Luna: It's voodoo.
  • Neville: What if it bites me and someone else dies?

harry potter series + a short summary

“And then the solution came to him. It was so simple, and so obvious, that he couldn’t believe it had taken so long.”

Literally a summary of Harry

Happy 37th Birthday, Ronald Bilius Weasley.

The truth is that Ron is my hero. He’s always there for his friends — sometimes belligerently, but there nevertheless. He’s also the comic relief in stressful situations; the funny guy with a great one-liner. And no matter how scared he may be, he will put aside his fears to support and protect the people he loves. To me, that represents true courage.

If you haven't already, could give some too things to keep in mind while writing Ron for the meme? I don't think I've ever found a Harry Potter author that writes him as well as you do- I'm a big fan!!

Aw, thank you!

Things I keep in mind when writing Ron Weasley:
1. His motivations are personal, not heroic or moral, which does not mean he doesn’t do heroic things.
2. He’s Harry’s best friend. They like each other. He’s one of Hermione’s best friends. They also like each other.
3. He’s one of the most fun characters to parallel with minor antagonists:
3a. Ex. Draco Malfoy– the purebloods raised in wizardry, with parents who love them, the heirs of a long heavy legacy of two Houses, the Hat barely touching their heads before Sorting.
3b. Ex. Petunia Evans Dursley– he’s a superior example of how to balance your bitterness, jealousy, and love for your siblings, both blood and not.
4. He beat frickin’ McGonagall at wizard’s chess at age eleven. This child is not stupid.
5. He assessed the situation, considered the options, and then stood still and let a giant enchanted queen violently take him down in order to win that game, at age eleven. This child is brave, loyal, and tough as hell.
