I was Re-watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and I realized that the Dursleys not only failed Harry (which they did majorly), they failed Dudley as well.
By spoiling him and enabling him to bully and belittle others from such a young age they are partly what made him the way he was.
Like how they showed him to be greedy by showering him with presents on his birthday and not objecting or telling him he should be grateful when he complained and asked for more.
Or by turning the other way (and even encouraging him) when he bullied other children, especially Harry.
It was their responsibility to teach him right from wrong and they failed.
I am not saying Dudley is completely innocent or that he is stuck being a greedy bully but they certainly didn’t do him any favours.
“Dumbledore paused, and although his voice remained light and calm, and he gave no obvious sign of anger, Harry felt a kind of chill emanating from him and noticed that the Dursleys drew very slightly closer together.
'You did not do as I asked. You have never treated Harry as a son. He has known nothing but neglect and often cruelty at your hands. The best that can be said is that he has at least escaped the appalling damage you have inflicted upon the unfortunate boy sitting between you.'”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
my favorite method of studying is crying a little and hoping for the best right before the test
HE THOUGHT HIS LIL FRIEND GOT BAKED INTO A COOKIE I AM 100% DONE AWHH
"Went to the store, sat on Santa’s lap.
Asked him to bring my friends all kinds of crap.
He said all you need is to write them a song.
Now, you haven’t heard it yet, so don’t try to sing along.
No, don’t sing along.”
I hate how a couple of exam papers depend where you will be placed for the next few years
If you don’t like puns or sarcasm then we’ll probably never get along ever.
school is actually just a game to test how much pressure and stress you can handle before breaking down
the worst is having a dream where someone loves you and you can practically feel them touching you and it feels so real and then you wake up and it’s like the life is being sucked out of you and the happiness just drains out of your body and you feel empty again
Int: So what is the highlight of the movie ‘This Is Us’?
Zayn: You get to see Harry quite a bit with his top off so that’s always a nice highlight. +
i hate people who are naturally really good at small talk and are comfortable with it too wow screw you and your well developed social skills
