Day 2: Favourite Book

image

Favourite book just has to be the 7th, I think part of it is I felt like I waited so long to finally get there, and the scenes with Dobby and Kreacher were just my favourite (I <3 the house elves). It was just the culmination of everything for me, and it was among the most emotional for me, especially with (SPOILER ALERT) Dobby’s and Fred’s deaths, Lupin and Tonks’ kid, Harry’s parents and Sirius at the end with him, Hagrid, and Molly’s best line ever “GET AWAY FROM MY DAUGHTER YOU BITCH”. And Bellatrix finally died (because I think I hated her more than Voldemort) and Umbridge (whom I also hated) met her demise. Plus Neville coming into his own and finding himself, really hit home for me. Snape. The Snape feels. And finally, McGonagall defending Harry was my favourite because I effing love Minerva. The build up to this book had been going on for a while, and it was like all of a sudden everything just happened all at once!

P.S. Second favourite is the Philosopher’s Stone, because it’s the lightest and cutest and gives me all the happy contented feels with none of the sadness.

Just a thing to prove to my mom.

Please reblog if you’re a girl and you don’t shave your legs/arm pits, or you’re a girl who does shave her legs/arm pits, but doesn’t think any the less of others that do not or if you’re a guy who doesn’t care if a girl shaves or not.

If I get enough reblogs, I’ll show this to her, and maybe it will be enough to convince her to stop telling me to be ashamed of my body’s natural functions just because I’m a girl.

Day 1: Favourite character— Hermione Granger

“She would definitely, definitely go back. And she would want to graduate, and I think that she was- I mean,I love Hermione. She went with Ron and Harry because she has a really good heart. That’s not about brain. Ultimately, she had a bigger heart than she had a brain and that’s saying something for Hermione.” J. K Rowling 

Hermione is my favourite for so many reasons. First of all, I identify with her on so many levels. The quote above sums up a lot of my feelings on why Hermione is so great. She is incredibly intelligent, but ultimately she is an amazing person with a big heart. One of my issues with the movies is the omission of her fight to free House Elves, an example of how she cares about those ostracized and oppressed by society. The scene in the first gif above also really kills me, Hermione knew there was a significant chance she could die and wanted her parents to not only be safe while she was gone, but also to be happy and live without sorrow if she died, and thus is just another example of her selflessness and how she puts others happiness before hers. I also love Emma Watson, so that’s a bonus too ;)
