"Everybody finished the song at different times. Dumbledore conducted their last few lines with his wand and when they had finished, he was one of those who clapped loudest. 'Ah music,' he said, wiping his eyes. 'A magic beyond all we do here!"

― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Keywords: GENTLE. CARING. WISE.

"To Harry's intense embarrassment, he suddenly realized that Dumbledore's bright blue eyes looked rather watery, and stared hastily at his own knee. When Dumbledore spoke, however, his voice was quite steady.

"I see a light in the kitchen. Let us not deprive Molly any longer of the chance to deplore how thin you are."

There were times when Dumbledore loudly projected his voice in the series, but never in an angry, I-WILL-MURDER-EVERY-OUNCE-OF-JOY-YOU'VE-EVER-FELT kind of way. Like damn, dude. Calm down.

This is completely and utterly SO FAR removed from Dumbledore's character. Like, he would never have said this in such a snippy, harsh tone. WAT R U EVEN DOING.
