What if the movie starts and it’s Luna and Rolf on their first date
And she’s going on and on about Nargles
and he’s absolutely fascinated
and completely blown away
and then he says “You would’ve loved my grandfather. I’ll tell you about him sometime.”
And the candles will be melting down in the restaurant and they’ll be the only ones left but she’ll shrug her shoulders and say
"This time is as good as any"
OH MAN BUT THEN THEY COULD DO THE THING FOR THE REST OF THE MOVIE
THE THING WHERE THE ACTORS WHO PLAY LUNA AND ROLF PLAY THE OTHER CHARACTERS BECAUSE IT’S LUNA WHO’S LISTENING TO THE STORY AND INTERPRETING IT SO WE SEE IT THROUGH HER IMAGINATION

Harry Potter as a teen comedy…
Now that was brilliant.
…am I the only one who saw this GIF and thought that it was a piece of Jello?
I get so angry that they deleted this because it’s such an important part of Dudley’s character - while he was jerk, the reason he was jerk wasn’t because he was simply a jerk, it was because of his upbringing and never learning what he was doing was wrong. He was a good person who didn’t know how to be good because he’d been spoilt and friends with the bullies all his life. He never saw the point in being nice because that was seen as being “weak”.
But then the dementors came, and he saw the worst thing, the thing that scared him more than anything: His true self. He saw what a bully he was and how pathetic he was, and how he didn’t have any true friends. And worse yet, Harry saved him - that surely would have made him feel worse. He’s seeing all the terrible things he’s done to Harry, and yet Harry still cares for him and he wishes he could be as good and as brave and decent and humble as Harry - but he didn’t know how.
He doesn’t know how to change, because he’s never been a “good guy” in his whole life. He’s always been tough and abusive and gets whatever he wants without having to think of other people because he didn’t realise how much he hurt them. But now he does, and he wants to change and make up for what he’s done to Harry, but he didn’t know how, so he left him a cup of tea outside his bedroom. Because he’s not good with words and feelings, and that was his way of saying he’s sorry for what he put Harry through.
And then here, it doesn’t seem like much to someone who hasn’t read the books - but all Harry’s life with the Dursleys as a waste of space - as less than nothing. Dudley used to treat everyone not in his gang as less than nothing, and for Dudley to say this - for him to acknowledge that Harry is a person - show’s that he has come so far. He still has a long way to go, but the fact he is trying to make up for what he’s done shows that he’s developed and that his adulthood won’t be a guy who probably would have ended up in jail before he was twenty, but a guy who’ll perhaps become a champion boxer with a spouse and kids.
And then I think about how they managed to find time for Harry and Hermione dancing and not this and I want to set a lethifold on Yates.
hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.
