“This may surprise people, but it is the truth. In many, many ways, Hufflepuff is my favorite House. There comes a point in the final book where each House has the choice whether or not to rise to a certain challenge… The Slytherins, for reasons that are understandable, decide they’d rather not play. The Ravenclaws: some decide they will, some decide they won’t. The Hufflepuffs, virtually to a person, stay – as do the Gryffindors. Now, the Gryffindors comprise a lot of fool-hardy and show-offy people. That’s just the way it is. I’m a Gryffindor, I’m allowed to say it. There’s bravery and there’s also showboating, and sometimes the two go together. The Hufflepuffs stayed for a different reason. They weren’t trying to show off. They weren’t being reckless. That’s the essence of Hufflepuff House. Now my oldest child, my daughter Jessica, said something very profound to me not very many days ago actually. She said to me – and she, by the way, was not Sorted into Hufflepuff House – but she said to me, “I think we should all want to be Hufflepuffs.” I can only say to you that I would not be at all disappointed to be Sorted into Hufflepuff House. So I’m a little upset that anyone does feel that way.” - Jo Rowling
Break a prop? Just put it back and walk away… ha ha!!
Emma’s reaction though
Sometimes it freaks me out how much like their characters they are. Emma’s very concerned, Dan saves the day, Rupert laughs.
When she looked into it, she found herself holding her children’s birth certificates, and all of their names weren’t shitty
OH NO I LIKE A LOT OF THESE
I REALLY AM A HUFFLEPUFF…
This is beautiful. I can’t even…
I want to cry.

THIS MAKES ME SO SAD. URGH.
I have a new canon. Harry Potter meets Inception.
I admit…I love Harry but we get no real looks at James’ personality so I find it really easy to ship Snape/Lily as a good alternate-ship.
If Rowling had shown us ANYTHING of James other than him being a raging, bullying asshat my opinions might be different. She did the same thing with the basically the entire Slythrin house, basically making it the “Evil House.”
Yeah she worked up the evil hype so that the “redemption” would be more dramatic.
When did she redeem Slytherin as a house? Last I remember every single member ditched Hogwarts the moment things went sideways (Excluding Slughorn and Snape)
ARGH <3 ;;
I’m a huge Snape fan, but…c’mon, his thing for Lily was a bit creepy. I mean, there’s the whole “the one that got away” feeling, and THEN there’s what Snape did, which just went way too far. Idk. I love Snape, so I feel like he deserved more than what he got. And he should’ve been able to move on from Lily. That would’ve been nice. I mean, Remus moved on from Sirius! -cough-
This is still adorable though.
/endless amounts of feelings regarding Snape
I love it when my otp is that fuckin’ close to being canon
In the wise words of Remus Lupin.
I would listen to pretty much all the advice that ever came out of Remus Lupin’s mouth
read: in the creepiest and least romantic way possible.
I like Snape, but not because he’s SO TRAGIC or POOR SNAPE or stuff like that. I just like him. But his love for Lily was fucking creepy man.
Note: I don’t really like James either, though. Jussayin’.
The blood really makes this one. I’ve been thinking about it all day, so I bumped it up the queue.
I am into this in like 8 different ways.
When I watched the movie, the first time his face showed up, I leaned in close to the friend next to me and said, “I think he feels Johanna.”
He replied, “No, Johanna’s his cover. He really feels Dumbledore.”
