Ron Weasley offered the stranger sitting next to him on the train half his sandwich, even though it was all he had. Ron Weasley sacrificed himself for the good of Harry and Hermione at age eleven, because even then he thought they were more important than he was, and the ones worth saving. Ron Weasley was Harry Potter’s first friend, and the first thing Harry ever had resembling a family. Ron Weasley lived in a cramped house, and wore hand me down robes, and he didn’t even think twice about offering his room and food and family to Harry every break, he offered him every thing he could and gave him everything he had. Ron Weasley took care of Harry Potter and Hermione Granger when they were too busy taking care of the rest of the world to worry about themselves. Ron Weasley stood on broken bones when he was thirteen years old, to tell a man infamous for murder that if he planned on killing his best mate, he would have to go through him first. Ron Weasley was the person Harry would miss most in the world. Ron Weasley was a pureblood wizard who, from a very young age, devoted his life to abolishing blood status, even if he didn’t quite understand his own privilege. Ron Weasley’s greatest fears and insecurities were tied up in his two best friends seeing him the way he saw himself. They were tied up in the idea, imbedded deeply in Ron Weasley, that he was somehow inferior. Ron Weasley gave Dobby his own clothes and socks to be buried in, because he understood how important it would have been to him. Ron Weasley thought about saving the house elves when everyone else forgot. If you don’t love Ron Weasley, The Boy Who Cared, I don’t know what books you read but they weren’t the same ones I did.

“But as the Harry Potter movies have gone on, there has been more in them and my character has developed more. But up until recently, it was just me playing this scared guy, with the odd light-hearted line. I never got to push myself…” - Rupert Grint.

Mm okay, sounds fake but okay.

Hermione - Power of Obliviate

Hermione has so many scenes in between the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2…but these two really grab those feels. They’re connected, and if you haven’t noticed yet, you’ll notice now. This scene above takes place before Hermione and the others meet up with Harry at the place that WAS the Dursleys. Now it’s nothing but an empty room.

Here’s the heart-wrenching scene:

She walks in on her parents after her mother calls her for tea. Knowing the future will be dangerous, she immediately but hesitantly, raises her wand and under her breath mutters, “Obliviate.” We then watch the heart wrenching scene when Hermione’s parents forget her…she is erased out of their lives…note those picture frames…

Hermione pulls, in another sense, a Lilly Potter. Lilly sacrificed herself for Harry out of love. Out of love for her parents and their safety, Hermione erases herself from their lives, and is willing to take on the pain. And trust me, if you paid attention, you can see the pain.

After escaping the wedding and managing to defeat two death eaters, Hermione has to erase their memories.

Look at her face.

In the scene, she hesitates for the longest time. I believe she is brought back to what she did before. How she had erased her memory from her parents lives, and separated herself from them. The pain is still there. It’s why she hesitates. Then she mutters, “Obliviate” and you die inside. It’s sad. And it breaks your heart.

But it had to be done.
