     ”I have spied for you and lied for you, put myself in mortal danger for you. Everything was supposed to be to keep Lily Potter’s son safe. Now you tell me you have been raising him like a pig for slaughter – “

     ”For him?” shouted Snape. “Expecto Patronum!”
     From the tip of his wand burst the silver doe. She landed on the office floor, bounded once across the office, and soared out of the window. Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.
     ”After all this time?”
     ”Always.” said Snape.

❝I thought I’d say something about a hero of Chris’. A man called Captain Joe Katanga. In 1960, climbing into a foil balloon, Captain Joe ascended 32 kilometers into the stratosphere. And then, armed only with a parachute, he jumped out. He fell for 4 minutes and 36 seconds, reaching 740 miles per hour, before opening his parachute, 5 kilometers above the earth. It had never been done before, and has never been done since. He did it just because he could. And that’s why Chris loved him. Because the thing about Chris was, he said yes. He said yes to everything. He loved everyone. He was the bravest boy… man I knew. And that was… he slung himself out of a foil balloon everyday. Because he could. Because he was. And that’s why… and that’s why… we… we love him !
