It kind of annoys me how Harry gets the credit for ending the first wizarding war. He literally did nothing.

His mother, on the other hand, did.

Lily Potter died for her son, she willingly gave up her life to defend him. She lay down her life to protect him. Her love was what protected Harry, and caused the curse to rebound.

If she had gone “sure, take him”, Harry would have died.

Give Harry kudos for ending the second war, but Lily Potter ended the first one. She deserves to be recognised more for that achievement. 

Lily should’ve gotten her own chocolate frog card after all that went down

That is one of the things I love about the books. Sometimes credit doesn’t go where it’s deserved. Sometimes focus is placed on the wrong people, the wrong events. History and popular opinion can get it wrong.

And people take a mother’s love for granted because that’s what mothers are supposed to do. That’s the ideal. It goes without saying, doesn’t it?

Never mind that it’s always much more complicated than that. Never mind that only a few people truly appreciate Lily’s role in ending the First Wizarding War. The fact that Harry gets the credit is perfect. It shows that while human sacrifice can save one life, and that is valid and beautiful and a thing worth doing, sometimes you need someone to rally behind to save them all.

You have to create a legend to inspire a generation, and every good hero needs an worthy origin story.

kljunar said: i think they may be referencing a satirical post circulating a long time ago about how harry potter copied twilight???

Fuck me. But why?

how does Harry Potter copy Twilight I mean seriously the first Twilight book came out in 2006 when the seventh Harry Potter book came out in 2007, and Sirius Black was formed in the first book and officially came out in the third, so... BACK OFF!

Okay, I know I’m going to regret this, but what the pants are you talking about?
