"I have often said that Hermione is a bit like me when I was younger. I think I was seen by other people as a right little know-it-all, but I hope that it is clear that underneath Hermione’s swottiness there is a lot of insecurity and a great fear of failure".
– J.K. Rowling
AND SO MUCH HEART. Seriously, I love Hermione so much. She wants to be perfect, but instead of chasing beauty and boys, she chases knowledge and wants ALL of it. And she knows she’ll never be able to master everything—but she still wants to and still gives it a shot, at least one shot.
I think Alice appeals to us because we all know what it is like to be a child in a strange world. When you’re a child the world is strange all the time. And Alice is the voice of reason. Everyone knows when you’re a child that you’re the only one that makes any sense.
okay so today I was at the mall and this girl walking in front of me and tripped and fell and instead of helping her up like a normal person would- I decided to make her feel less embarrassed and fall down too
but I guess another guy had the same idea because we fell at the same time
and then another person fell
and suddenly I was lying in the middle of an impromptu fainting mob and a lot of people were shouting
and the girl who’d originally fallen looked so fucking happy
