Happy Birthday, Harry James Potter! (31/07/1980)
Aug. 1st 2014 - International Croatoan Day
"I was set free because my greatest fear had been realized, and I still had a daughter who I adored, and I had an old typewriter and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life."
Happy Birthday Joanne Rowling (7/31/1965) and Harry James Potter (7/31/1980)
I have to kill you.

Book Quotes: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
"How come she married him?" Harry asked miserably. "She hated him!" Nah, she didn’t," said Sirius. "She started going out with him in seventh year," said Lupin. "Once James deflated his head a bit," said Sirius. "And stopped hexing people just for the fun of it," said Lupin. "Even Snape?" said Harry. "Well," said Lupin slowly, "Snape was a special case. I mean, he never lost an opportunity to curse James, so you couldn’t really expect James to take that lying down, could you?" "And my mum was okay with that?" "She didn’t know too much about it to tell you the truth," said Sirius. "I mean, James didn’t take Snape on dates with her and jinx him in front of her, did he?"
It is the quality of ones convictions that determines success, not the number of followers.
Harry’s breath was coming in searching gasps. Sirius must be just behind the curtain, he, Harry, would pull him back out again….
DRACO MALFOY WEEK | DAY 1 - FAVORITE SCENE
"…I’m the one with the wand…you’re at my mercy…"
"No, Draco," said Dumbledore quietly. "It is my mercy, and not yours, that matters now."
Malfoy did not speak. His mouth was open, his wand hand still trembling. Harry thought he saw it drop by a fraction. But suddenly footsteps were thundering up the stairs and a second later Malfoy was buffeted out of the way as four people in black robes burst through the door on to the ramparts. [hbp, chap 27]
—That time Draco thought about switching sides.
You’re just an outsider. You’re nothing. Yet somehow, you made yourself something.

"Believe me," croaked Black. "Believe me, Harry. I never betrayed James and Lily. I would have died before I betrayed them."
And at long last, Harry believed him. Throat too tight to speak, he nodded.
They shared a wish, a hope, a dream,
They hatched a daring plan
To educate young sorcerers
Thus Hogwarts School began.

The house of Godric Gryffindor has commanded the respect of the wizarding world for nearly ten centuries. I will not have you, in one night, besmirching that name by behaving like a babbling, bumbling band of baboons!
