You are protected, in short, by your ability to love! The only protection that can possibly work against the lure of power like Voldemort’s! In spite of all the temptation you have endured, all the suffering, you remain pure of heart, just as pure as you were at the age of eleven, when you stared into a mirror that reflected your heart’s desire, and it showed you only the way to thwart Lord Voldemort, and not immortality or riches.
July 31st, 1980 - Happy 33rd Birthday, Harry Potter!
the kids who are wearing robes were taking their OWLs/NEWTs. Notice Luna’s not wearing a robe either. Because they’re underclassmen and had free periods while the upperclassmen were taking their exams.
This post is amazing because a) Slytherin and intrahouse love, but also because b) someone just explained how free-dress works during exams at Hogwarts.
