18 Feelings You'll Only Understand If You Read The "Harry Potter" Books


1. The complete bliss when McGonagall tells Umbridge off and defends Harry's career choices.

2. And when she tells Potter to have a biscuit.

3. The pure rage when Snape shades the hell out of Hermione when Malfoy makes her teeth grow.

4. And every time he bullied Neville.

5. The joy of realizing the Weasley twins pelted Voldy in the face with snow.

6. That giddy feeling when Fred and George made an epic exit from Hogwarts and ensured Peeves would carry their legacy.

7. The small amount of happiness after Cedric's death, when Harry gave his Triwizard winnings to the twins to start their joke shop.

8. The shock of Aunt Petunia receiving a howler from Dumbledore.

9. The pure pain of Molly's boggart.

10. The justice of Marietta getting what she deserved for ratting out Dumbledore's Army.

Sorry not sorry.

11. The pure anger and frustration of finding out Harry could have easily communicated with Sirius via a mirror rather than being lied to by Kreacher.

12. The satisfaction of Harry and Ginny's first kiss in the common room after their Quidditch win.

13. The shock when reading Deathly Hallows and learning Harry actually saw the diadem in the Room of Requirement when he hid his Potions book.

14. The disbelief of Harry using the Cruciatus Curse on Amycus Carrow because he spat in McGonagall's face.

15. The elation of Hermione and Ron's first kiss when Ron mentioned saving the house-elves.

"Hang on a moment!" said Ron sharply, "We've forgotten someone!"

"Who?" asked Hermione.

"The house-elves, they'll all be down in the kitchen, won't they?"

"You mean we ought to get them fighting?" asked Harry.

"No," said Ron seriously, "I mean we should tell them to get out. We don't want any more Dobbies, do we? We can't order them to die for us—"

There was a clatter as the basilisk fangs cascaded out of Hermione's arms. Running at Ron she flung them around his neck and kissed him full on the mouth. Ron threw away the fangs and broomstick he was holding and responded with such enthusiasm that he lifted Hermione off her feet.

16. The pride when Kreacher lead the Hogwarts elves into battle.

17. The devastation of Fred's death, just as Percy reconciled with his brothers.

18. And of course, the EPIC EXCITEMENT of Voldemort dying a human death, in the Great Hall, surrounded by the wizarding community.
