I saw this on one of the Facebook pages I follow and it made me laugh. It’s so true though. (Plus I’m a huge Pokemon fan). The muggle borns could have their own secret club and inside jokes to get back at the elitist purebloods. Although, I cannot remember the ratio of muggle borns to purebloods. Were there enough muggle borns to start a club?
I think one of my favourite moments in the books was in the Deathly Hallows when ‘Cinderella’ was mentioned. Ron thinks it sounds like a name for a disease but Harry and Hermione know that it’s a fairytale. It’s always cool to see how worlds collide and the way people interpret unfamiliar words or objects.
Also, happy Valentines Day everyone! While many celebrate this day with their romantic partners (if they have someone), it should also be a day to love yourself. In the words of Oscar Wilde, “To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.” So enjoy that amazing romance with oneself today, and all days. It is also ‘1 Billion Rising‘ day. A fantastic campaign where people over the world dance to demand an end to violence against women and girls. So, remember to love yourself and those who you care about, and dance to end violence and celebrate joy.
