you know what Harry that is an interesting piece of information don’t be an ass
Harry, your whole thing is playing a sport that involves flying around on gravity resistant sticks made from trees. Did you ever stop to think Neville was telling you this cause he was being considerate of your interests?
Look at this jock asshole
Please tell me that there was at least one asshole Muggleborn kid who refused to call teachers professor
“It’s professor Snape”
“Do you have a doctorate degree?”
“Okay then Mr. Snape”
“But squad, do you think Lupin’s a professor?”
“Did you see his elbow patches? No question”
Harry: I know it’s late and I am just going to spew a whole bunch of shit right now, but stay with me on this, because I think I might be on to something.
Ron: Alright, mate, go for it.
Harry: I think that THIS year I should be more proactive.
Hermione: Oh, yes, please.
Harry: I think I should try to kill the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher BEFORE they try to kill me.
Ron: …It’s worth a shot.
Harry: I know, right?
Hermione: NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!
Year 1- “We are NOT hiding a magical item that powerful in a school! This is what Gringotts is for.”
Year 2- “Children are being petrified left and right? We send them home. Immediately. And get me the Aurors on the line. How is this even a debate.”
Year 3- “There are Dementors on the grounds? Yep, children are sent home again. And Severus, stop being racist against werewolves.”
Year 4- “Potter, don’t be ridiculous, this is obviously a plot against you. Sit down, you are not entering this tournament. You are only fourteen, for Merlin’s sake.”
Year 5- “Eat a centaur dick, Dolores.”
Year 6- “Severus, why haven’t you updated your potion textbooks requirements, this was already old when you studied here.”
Year 7- “There’s a war? Children are sent home, obviously. All of them. Yes, you too, Mister Weasley.”
one of the v. important things the movies missed about ron is just like, how down to fight he was at all times. like not even duel just he was always ready to physically beat the shit out of people who insulted his family or friends and WOULD if no one stopped him.
there are so many points in the books where its just casually dropped in ‘and so Harry and/or Hermione had to physically restrain Ron’ usually from Malfoy but if Harry or Hermione weren’t paying attention it became ‘and so Ron punched Malfoy in the face’.
Like, Ron cursing Malfoy for calling Hermione Mudblood wasnt just a one off thing like every time he did that in the future when Ron was there it was like ‘ron had to be stopped from ending Malfoy’s life’ just thrown in there. Same for any other severe insults.
My absolute favorite instance of this is in the first book when they’re just watching a Quidditch game and Malfoy just starts bothering Ron and Hermione during it and is finally like ‘man its pretty funny how the Gryffindor quidditch team is recruited based on pity like y’know Potter has no parents, Weasley’s brothers have no money they should include Longbottom for having no brains” and Ron just flings himself at Malfoy and starts punching him and rolling around under the bleachers and Neville is like “uh shit i guess i better fight CRABBE AND GOYLE BOTH AT ONCE so they don’t go after him” (very underrated moment of courage from Neville he knew he had no chance but he just went for it honestly almost more impressive than confronting Voldemort in book 7)
and they’re just fighting for like twenty minutes and Hermione doesn’t even notice because she was so focused on tuning Malfoy out and watching the game and when its over she looks around like “where’d ron go” and then later its mentioned “Harry sees Ron and his face is covered in blood and he’s like “GOOD JOB WINNING THE GAME HARRY I GAVE MALFOY A BLACK EYE SO WE BOTH DID GREAT THINGS TONIGHT oh btw i have detention for a week and neville’s unconcious but they say he’ll be fine”.
Ron is ride or die and will fight u for $0 y’all
harry: and what if I wave my wand and nothing happens?
ron: throw it away and punch him on the nose
Draco in COS: Pity Granger didn’t die.
Ron: I don’t need my wand. I’m going to kill him with my bare hands.
When the auror said “You and Grindelwald were as close as brothers” the girl in the theatre behind me was like “Yeah, of course they were” but when Dumbledore said “Oh, we were closer than brothers” and we all just burst out laughing.
thank FUCK that we finally have a franchise where people aren’t trying to EXPELLIARMUS the fucking wand out of the main villains hand to win
Yeah because they need to fight tactically to win, whereas Harry beat Voldemort before he even duelled him.
just another day at hogwarts
