Sorry! Loadin' up.

The meaning of all the deaths in HP:

  • James and Lily: To establish the story line as well as to show orphans of war.
  • Cedric Diggory: To show Voldemort's mercilessness.
  • Sirius Black: To show Harry's lack of guidance/parental figures.
  • Albus Dumbledore: To show the death of a great leader can't stop a war.
  • Hedwig: To show the end of Harry's childhood.
  • Mad Eye: To show the death of a solider.
  • Dobby: To show even the smallest of creatures can die a Hero's death.
  • Fred Weasley: To show that some deaths you just can't get over. And that's okay.
  • Tonks and Remus Lupin: To reestablish orphans of war.
  • Colin Creevey: To show that the good die young, even when they aren't supposed to.
  • Severus Snape: To show that you can always change your ways. Always.
  • Meaning of this post: To make anyone who reads it want to crawl in a hole and drown in their tears.

I fell asleep with my ereader in my hand for the first time last night and I discovered that that thing HURTS when it falls on your head. Much more than a paper book.

"I had a funny feeling as I saw the house disappear, as though I had written a poem and it was very good and I had lost it and would never remember it again."

"The extent to which I cling to you, dearest, frightens me; I keep telling myself it is wicked—may you never say so, dearest—and yet I cannot refrain. If I were with you I’m afraid I should never leave you alone—and yet my craving to be alone is continuous—we would both suffer, though of course it would mean a happiness well worth any amount of suffering."
Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice (via violentwavesofemotion)
