since its his birthday, i’d just like to say how much i love ron weasley. i could write hundreds upon hundreds of words on why he is an incredible friend, an exemplary human being, and the kind of underdog hero that every poor, bullied, overshadowed child deserves.
ron is extraordinary in that he exemplifies such deeply human qualities, both good and bad, and proves again and again that getting good grades, having new clothes, or being the most popular kid at school don’t determine your worth.
i think hermione says it best; there are more important things than books and cleverness. friendship. bravery. kindness. humility. compassion. ron is the beating heart of every circle he is a part of and reminds us all that no matter how the world sees you, or how you see yourself, you are capable of great things. you matter.
happy birthday, ron weasley. thank you for reminding me time and time again not to give up or be discouraged. there are brighter days ahead, always.
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.
Sadly it very obvious what the writers are doing here. They are concocting drama for Westallen because they want the audience to be on the edge wondering what will happen next. It’s a very basic writing tactic but even I can’t deny it can be very effective.
I had a gut feeling this would happen too. I loved the proposal but it felt kind of off to me. Right down to this episode where they didn’t show Iris saying yes. The “Real Proposal” won’t come util the end of this season, if not season 4. The writers are making it very clear Barry and Iris love each other and want to be married. But that we have to wait until the circumstances are better.
Essentially its going to happen but we have to wait awhile longer. First they’re going to make us “suffer” a little until we can be happy again.
