never forget that for voldemort’s name to rearrange to “je suis voldemort” in the french translations, they had to make his middle name ‘Elvis’

Today marks the 12th anniversary of the theatrical release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Debuting on the scene with mostly positive critical acclaim, the first installment in the massive Potter film franchise went on to make over $974 million worldwide, and is the 18th highest-grossing film of all-time.
But that’s not why it’s amazing.
As Potterheads, we can remember quite well seeing the Privet Drive sign slide into focus onscreen for the first time and our hands gripping whatever was closest because this was it, it was really happening: Harry’s world was being brought to life. And it was just as magical as we imagined it would be. If you have time, pop the film in for nostalgia’s sake. You can never walk down Diagon Alley or ride the boats across the Black Lake to Hogwarts too many times.
Did I know, in my heart of hearts, what Gellert Grindelwald was? I think I did, but I closed my eyes. If the plans we were making came to fruition, all my dreams would come true.
THIS IS HOW THEIR LIFE FUCKING SHOULDVE BEEN
BUT SHIT HAPPENED AND I HATE EVERYTHING

↳ "People die every day. Friends, family. Yeah, we lost Harry tonight. But he’s still with us, in here. So’s Fred, and Remus, Tonks… all of them. They didn’t die in vain. But you will, because you’re wrong! Harry’s heart did beat for us, for all of us! It’s not over!"
“Is Draco alive? Is he in the castle?” The whisper was barely audible; her lips were an inch from his ear, her head bent so low that her long hair shielded his face from the onlookers. “Yes,” he breathed back. He felt the hand on his chest contract; her nails pierced him. Then it was withdrawn. She had sat up. “He is dead!” Narcissa Malfoy called to the watchers.
In the end, Voldemort’s fate twice came down to the choice of a woman, a mother.
Rock ‘n roll.

oh gog yes
THIS. He looks so much like what I thought he would.
Somehow his hair is perfect for an adventurous, nerdy wizard, chasing magical creatures through the back alleys of New York, wearing a weird mix of Muggle clothing and wizard robes in a half-assed attempt to blend in.
"Trust me, I’m an expert!" he says, chasing a chimera down the sewers, wielding a knobby stick.
"I have visited lairs, burrows and nests across five continents, observed the curious habits of magical beasts in a hundred countries, witnessed their powers, gained their trust and, on occasion, beaten them off with my travelling kettle."
