Why do you think JK killed off a popular character like Fred? It seems pretty pointless to me.
I don’t believe his death was pointless. Heartbreaking, absolutely, but not pointless. He died fighting, and I don’t think Fred would have had it any other way. As far as why Jo did it, it’s just the reality of war, isn’t it? People die, even people you immortalize in your head. No one can be saved by their virtues alone. It’s horrible when your favourite characters go but I appreciate the heavy realism of the Battle of Hogwarts. A standoff that ends with everyone on the good side walking away unscathed would have really watered down the entire 10 year buildup of the series. Go big or go home.
P.S. Fred at least died laughing, so he was completely himself until the very end.
if you can explain to your children that an immortal man in a red suit who lives in the north pole travels around the entire world on one night every year on a sleigh carried by magical flying deer i think itll be easy enough to tell them two people are in love
WHAT I JUST REALIZED WAS THERE WAS A REASON THEY CHOSE AN OLDER ACTOR LIKE CAPALDI
Ten and Eleven were so young-looking and pretty much more childish than most of their predecessors because both of them still couldn’t forgive themselves for the time war and hides it under an carefree exterior
Listen to me, you can’t fix people. Your love won’t make him stop hating his father, and your devotion won’t cure her of her childhood. All you can do is be there, violets sprouting out from your ribs, acceptance on your lips, your own wounds still bleeding, and all you can do is be there, and sometimes that’s enough; sometimes that’s everything.
I think one of the saddest things is when two people really get to know each other: their secrets, their fears, their favourite things, what they love, what they hate, literally everything, and then they go back to being strangers. It’s like you have to walk past them and pretend like you never knew them, never even talked to them before, when really, you know everything about them.
