He couldn’t know that at this very moment, people meeting in secret all over the country were holding up their glasses and saying in hushed voices: ‘To Harry Potter - The Boy Who Lived!’
what is it called when you hate someone but at the same time want to stick your tongue down their throat
Can anyone (and this is a genuine question) think of another book series that had book sale dates so popular the lines went out the store and some of the shops threw parties and people dressed as the characters for it, sometimes for prizes, and then adults and children alike proceded to read nonstop for the next 24 hours till it was finished?
I can think of book premiers that have a similar level of excitement (The Fault In Our Stars had this to an extent, and as much as I hate it- Twilight had a similar frenzy of excitement for the books) but not quite to the same extreme now with the amount of people in costume (which, granted, is more to do with genre but still)
I mean, this is par for cult movies, but most books take generations to amass this much adoration.
am I saying Harry Potter is the best series ever? Not in the least! I’m saying that something unique and wonderful happened with Harry Potter that I feel fortunate to have experienced since it seems as historically significant as the detail that fans of Sherlock Holmes wore black mourning crepes on their hats when he was killed off: I feel like I got to experience literary history.
The boy who lived… for the greater good.
Yeah… I’ve been listening to Sorcerer’s Stone this week.
i mean this is a boy who basically thinks that if you make a true statement and then sneer it is automatically a very clever insult?

Jim Moriarty knew what it took to get Sherlock to come out and play, the wizard called himself a consulting detective to try and mystify the more old fashioned witches and wizards but they both knew that all he was after was a chase to pursue and a problem to solve.
Standing in the middle of a Muggle museum and summoning something large and fiery from his wand, Moriarty casually defied everything that the statute of wizarding secrecy stood for. Across the waves at Azkaban at that very moment, every cell in Azkaban lost it’s magical enchantments and soon prisoners were streaming out. At Gringotts, hundreds of treasures and money rose from their vaults and, untouched by hand, beat open the doors and flew upwards and outwards, confusing the goblin bankers and sending them scurrying around frantically trying to retrieve them.
Jim Moriarty had a plan and the end result could mean Sherlock being known as one of the great dark wizards of his time.
