THIS! Also I wish Rowling would have explored Hermione’s motivations more, because damn, these tags did a better job at explaining her motivations than the actual books. I mean, seriously, we get to know all about Ron, get to learn all his deepest fears and his greatest motivations, get to meet each member of his family, get to see where he lives, get to know him outside the context of being one of Harry’s best friends… but Hermione? Well, we don’t even get to know half of that.

Hermione is one of my favorite characters, but we don’t get to know Hermione like we do Ron. In fact, this can be said of most of the women in the series when you think about it. 

Since everyone’s already talking about Hermione, I’d like to bring this back. I have a lot of feelings about the women in Harry Potter.

I have been watching Lord of the Rings since 6:30am. I don’t know what year it is. I have forgotten the taste of bread, the sound of trees, the softness of the wind. I’ve even forgotten my own name
