you better friggin’ believe it :p God I hate that show because I love it so much. It ruined me. And it’s not even the best show I’ve seen. I’m weird. Anyways. Go Felicity!
This has been the most disjointed, terrible response ever. I apologize
YES YOU ARE.
You don’t have to say sorry :p I have to say sorry because I haven’t been active.
This was written 4 months ago and I apologize profusely for the late response! Thank you so so so much! I know I haven’t been active lately but I’m getting back into the groove :)
"Give her hell from us, Peeves."
And Peeves, whom Harry had never seen to take an order from a student before, swept his belled hat from his head and sprang into a salute as Fred and George wheeled about to tumultuous applause from the students below and sped out of the open front doors into the glorious sunset.
HARRY POTTER HISTORY MEME: two inventions [2/2] → QuidditchQuidditch is a wizarding sport played on broomsticks and is the most popular sport among wizards and witches. It takes its name from Queerditch Marsh, the location of the first recorded game.
The lake is the setting for the second task that the Triwizard competitors must face in Goblet of Fire, which is also my favourite task. I find it satisfyingly creepy; I like the diversity of the methods employed by the competitors to breathe underwater, and I enjoyed plumbing the depths of a part of the grounds that had never been seen before. In the original draft of Chamber of Secrets, I had Harry and Ron crash into the lake in Mr Weasley’s Ford Anglia, and meet the merpeople there for the first time. At that time I had a vague notion that the lake might lead to other places, and that the merpeople might play a larger role in the later books than they did, so I thought that Harry ought to be introduced to both at this stage. However, the Whomping Willow provided a more satisfying, less distracting crash, and served a later purpose in Prisoner of Azkaban, too. The Great Lake (which is really a Scottish loch, apparently freshwater and landlocked) never did develop as a portal to other seas or rivers, although the appearance of the Durmstrang ship from its depths in Goblet of Fire hints at the fact that if you are travelling by an enchanted craft, you might be able to take a magical shortcut to other waterways. - J.K.
