"Friday was an important day for Harry and Ron. They finally managed to find their way down to the Great Hall for breakfast without getting lost once."-
J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Ch. 8, p. 100
#Can we just pause for a moment and appreciate how sweet this is? #I mean, it’s something that probably many of us can relate to. #And in the context of the story, with all the great things Harry and Ron are going to do, it’s just so cute that getting down to breakfast was a big accomplishment way back when.
You’re in every scene of the film. Was that intense?
Yeah, it really was. It was thrilling, of course, and also exhausting, because it was a lot of work. You work your whole life to get these kinds of jobs, so it was sort of dreamy. I thought about [my character] Eva and breathed Eva and was Eva morning, noon and night.
me: watching tv show
me: looks down at phone for 0.002 seconds
me: misses entire plot line of episode, introduction of 2 new characters, 1 main character dies, they are in a different country, at some point someone reproduced and offspring are spoiled and someone got a pet cat
I love that point in a friendship when you get what the other person’s style is - their “thing.” You see a knit jersey tie and think of them immediately; a type of weather, a bad movie, a woman’s outfit. You know, with absolute certainty, that your friend would enjoy this thing with you more than anyone else in the world. You feel closer in that moment of recognition, even if they’re not there.
