See, Rowling largely operates Harry’s generation in a clear system of parallels to the previous generation, Marauders and all. Harry is his father—Quidditch star, a little pig-headed sometimes, an excellent leader. Ron is Sirius Black—snarky and fun, loyal to a fault, mired in self-doubts. Hermione is Remus Lupin—book smart and meticulous, always level-headed, unfailingly perceptive. Ginny is Lily Evans—a firecracker, clever and kind, unwilling to take excuses. Draco Malfoy is Severus Snape—a natural foil to Harry, pretentious, possessed of the frailest ego and also deeper sense of right and wrong when it counts. And guess what? Neville Longbottom is Peter Pettigrew.

Neville is a perfect example of how one single ingredient in the recipe can either ruin your casserole (or stew, or treacle tart, whatever you like), or utterly perfect your whole dish. Neville is the tide-turner, the shiny hinge. And all because he happens to be in the same position as Wormtail… but makes all the hard choices that Pettigrew refused the first time around. Other characters are in similar positions, but none of them go so far as Neville. None of them prove that the shaping of destiny is all on the individual the way he does.

finally something that treats introverts and extroverts as equals

The punctuation is even accurate holy shit

Freaking thank you. Being shy and being an introvert are not the same thing, as well as being obnoxious and being an extrovert.

The punctuation thing is right on, I’m such a ! It’s ridiculous

This part always gets me. The fact that separating the twins by death was so unthinkable that they appeared as one unit, that even Mrs. Weasley’s worst nightmare didn’t include the twins separate. The fact that Percy had disowned his family and hurt his parents emotionally, but Mrs. Weasley still loved him fiercely. The fact that her love knows no bounds and when she saw her family dead, Harry was without a doubt, a part of it.

#this whole fucking part sucks#and how Sirius just stares at the spot on the floor where Harry’s body was for several minutes#and I fucking hate this series
BECAUSE YOU KNOW HE’S FUCKING RELIVING GOING INTO THE HOUSE AND GODRIC’S HOLLOW AND SEEING JAMES DEAD ON THE FLOOR AND EVERYTHING JUST STOPS BECAUSE HE HAD SPENT 12 YEARS IN A CELL SEEING THAT IMAGE OVER AND OVER AND HE WAS SO GRATEFUL THAT HE’D NEVER HAVE TO SEE THAT IMAGE REAL EVER AGAIN AND THEN THIS HAPPENS AND I’M TOO EMOTIONAL TO CONTINUE I’M SORRY
