The Magic Begins: Day 7 - Favorite scene

↳  As the Inquisitorial Squad closed in, Fred and George kicked off from the floor, shooting fifteen feet into the air, the iron peg swinging dangerously below. Fred looked across the hall at the poltergeist bobbing on his level above the crowd. "Give her hell from us, Peeves.“ And Peeves, whom Harry had never seen take an order from a student before, swept his belled hat from his head and sprang to a salute as Fred and George wheeled about to tumultuous applause from the students below and sped out of the open front doors into the glorious sunset.

9. a character you feel the need to defend ✦ Draco Lucius Malfoy

I just feel that although he was a horrific bully, he became a Death Eater and he did some terrible things there are very few people who wouldn’t have done the same in his position. He was constantly indoctrinated with the Pureblood, ‘Hail the Dark Lord’ ideology by all the role models in his life. He had Lucius Malfoy as a father, Bellatrix and Rodolphus Lestrange as an aunt and uncle who all had Dark Marks and demanded respect and were wealthy. Plus, he was bullied by his father and would have been desperate to earn his respect, or even a little praise, in any way he could. And even though he took the Dark Mark he never really followed through with any of the things he was instructed to do: kill Dumbledore, he didn’t give up Harry when it really mattered. And I know people could cite Sirius or Andromeda to prove that he doesn’t have any excuses, but I’m not saying he is the perfect character (as none JK’s characters are), he could even be called a coward but I view him as a conflicted, and chiefly scared character whom I feel great sympathy for.

THE MAGIC BEGINS ϟ 1. Favourite character

-Harry Potter
I can say I have two favourite characters: Harry and Sirius. Considering I’ll use Sirius in another question for this challenge, I’m using Harry in the first one. And why Harry? First of all, without him I literally don’t know where I would be right now. I grew up with him; yes, with the rest of characters too, but it was always about Harry, and not only because he was the main character. I love the fact he have flaws, they make him more human, something I haven’t found a lot in heros during my life. He’s brave, he’s loyal, he’s powerful, he’s protective, and he have a very very big heart. And I’ll also say I share some personality aspects with him, which in a way, made me love him even more.
