Harry Potter Honouring the Dead Book Tag

No one tagged me, but here I am.

Harry Potter and death are two of my favorite things. I had to be here.

There are many, many spoilers ahead. I will try to mark them beforehand, but not promises.

Before we start, I have to show some house pride:

Ravenclaw

Surprised? So am I!

On to the cruel first question:

Ffffffffffffff.

I choose Sirius.

Harry needed a dad. I’m sad for the Weasleys and everything, but I wish Harry had been able to keep Sirius as a friend and ally.

In the infamous Resurrection Stone scene, Sirius’ ghost made me cry hardest.

Well…also Lily’s.

And Lupin’s.

IT WAS A SAD SCENE.

I started the book hating Froi.

Of course, Melina Marchetta turned it around.

I still don’t want to read the Froi sequel, but good on ya for redeeming a RAPIST!

This series is so underrated.

Who’s my favorite, though?

Probably Danica. None of the books beats the original.

 

This has been in my drafts for ages and ages.

It was formatted and everything!

I don’t remember where I found this post.

Could I look it up? Probably.

Happy Friday. Have some Potter.

  1. Oh my gosh … what a brutal first question! I would be really torn … but I think I would’ve made the same decision. I remember crying so hard when Sirius passed away, especially because Harry could’ve eventually lived with him and he would’ve had a father for once. Seriously, Harry can’t catch a break …

    1. He seriously can’t!! I remember thinking, “Can’t he have ONE thing that makes him a little bit happy?” There’s that whole drama with his friends, he keeps seeing people die…kid needs a vacation!
