the magic begins ϟ 9 - a character you feel the need to defend.
↳ "Well, I didn’t think my dad would’ve wanted his two best friends to become killers. Besides, dead, the truth dies with him. Alive, you’re free."
the magic begins ϟ 8 - a scene you really wanted to be in the movies but wasn’t.
↳ "You see!" said a strained voice. Tonks was glaring at Lupin. "She still wants to marry him, even though he’s been bitten! She doesn’t care!"
"It’s different," said Lupin, barely moving his lips and looking suddenly tense. "Bill will not be a full werewolf. The cases are completely-"
"But I don’t care either, I don’t care!" said Tonks, seizing the front of Lupin’s robes and shaking them."I’ve told you a million times…."
And the meaning of Tonk’s Patronus and her mouse-colored hair, and the reason she had come running to find Dumbledore when she had heard a rumor someone had been attacked by Greyback, all suddenly became clear to Harry; it had not been Sirius that Tonks had fallen in love with after all.
"And I’ve told you a million times," said Lupin, refusing to meet her eyes, staring at the floor, "that I am too old for you, too poor….too dangerous…."
"I’ve said all along you’re taking a ridiculous line on this, Remus," said Mrs. Weasley over Fleur’s shoulder as she patter her on the back.
"I am not being ridiculous," said Lupin steadily. "Tonks deserves somebody young and whole."
"But she wants you," said Mr. Weasley, with a small smile. "And after all, Remus, young and whole men do not necessarily remain so."
He gestured sadly at his son, lying between them.
"This is….not the moment to discuss it," said Lupin, avoiding everybody’s eyes as he looked around distractedly. "Dumbledore is dead…."
"Dumbledore would have been happier than anybody to think that there was a little more love in the world," said Professor McGonagall curtly.
the magic begins ϟ 7 - favorite scene.
↳ Prisoner of Azkaban, in the Shrieking Shack
“They became Animagi.”
"My dad too?"
"Yes, indeed. It took them the best part of three years to work out how to do it. Your father and Sirius here were the cleverest students in the school, and lucky they were, because the Animagus transformation can go horribly wrong - one reason the Ministry keeps a close watch on those attempting to do it. Peter needed all the help he could get from James and Sirius. Finally, in our fifth year, they managed it. They could each turn into a different animal at will."
"But how did that help you?"
"They couldn’t keep me company as humans, so they kept me company as animals. A werewolf is only a danger to people… Peter, as the smallest, could slip beneath the Willow’s attacking branches and touch the knot that freezes it. They would then slip down the tunnel and join me. Under their influence, I became less dangerous. My body was still wolfish, but my mind seemed to become less so while I was with them…"
the magic begins ϟ 6 - most powerful quote.
↳ "You think the dead we loved ever truly leave us? You think we don’t recall them more clearly than ever in times of great trouble? Your father is alive in you, Harry, and shows himself plainly when you have need of him. How else could you produce that particular Patronus? Prongs rode again last night."
the magic begins ϟ 5 - your house.
↳ you might belong in Hufflepuff
where they are just and loyal
those patient Hufflepuffs are true
and unafraid of toil
the magic begins ϟ 4 - your favorite ship.
↳ And the meaning of Tonks’s Patronus and her mouse-colored hair, and the reason she had come running to find Dumbledore when she had heard a rumor someone had been attacked by Greyback, all suddenly became clear to Harry; it had not been Sinus that Tonks had fallen in love with after all.

↳ "I don’t go looking for trouble. Trouble usually finds me."
the magic begins ϟ 1 - your favorite character.
↳ "Not at all up to your usual standard, Hermione. Only one out of three, I’m afraid. I have not been helping Sirius get into the castle and I certainly don’t want Harry dead…" An odd shiver passed over his face. "But I won’t deny that I am a werewolf."
