hp quotes // “‘Oy, you! 'Arry Potter!’ shouted a particularly grim-looking dwarf, elbowing people out of the way to get to Harry. Hot all over at the thought of being given a Valentine in front of a queue of first years, which happened to include Ginny Weasley, Harry tried to escape. The dwarf, however, cut his way through the crowd by kicking people’s shins, and reached him before he’d gone two paces. 'I’ve got a musical message to deliver to 'Arry Potter in person,’ he said, twanging his harp in a threatening sort of way.”
Literally can’t stop coming back to this scene. They’re literally just standing opposite of each other, but it’s so completely obvious they’re trapped in the other’s body. From the fluid and graceful way Valentine moves his arms, to Magnus standing stalk still, hunched over and stiff, they both capture the essence of the other. so. fucking. well.
Alan and Harry killed the shit out of this episode and scene.
