I HAVE THREE WORDS THAT WILL BRING JOY TO YOUR HEART:

#all brooms fly like 3 feet off the ground#the bludgers are stuffed animals#keepers often get distracted by clouds#the seekers are better at playing tag than catching the snitch#games are over when it’s naptime
CHECK OUT your differences in wand technique here and how fluidly and casually Ron throws a curse in comparison to Harry and Hermione Hermione has done the reading and is technically perfect of course Elbow straight; wrist bent Wand tip aligned with left sightline left arm held loosely behind her for balance Harry hasn’t ever done the reading Grip too tight; elbow locked Shoulders raised Left elbow cranked in awkwardly against his body Kids’ll imitate his awful technique and Junior Aurors it’ll make their parents nuts; don’t twist your neck like that I don’t care what Auror Potter does When you save wizardkind you can hold your wand however you want until then drop your shoulders Ron’s been around wand users since birth practiced with twigs and then his brothers’ wands Look at how the movement flows from his center the way he uses his whole body throws out his opposite hand behind him to counterbalance the movement Harry and Hermione get their wands into position and then throw the curse Ron’s spell starts mid-motion because he knows his wand will be in position in time (helenish)
There will be a day when I see this and I will scroll past.
Today is not that day
Plus Ron is casting his curse non-verbally. That’s very difficult and it requires training and practice to successfully cast a nonverbal spell. It’s success is determined by the amount of concentration and mental discipline of the witch or wizard. But this is Ron Weasley he likely didn’t put training and practice into casting non-verbal spells, this advanced magic comes to him naturally. The only other time we see him cast a non-verbal spell is when he accidentally made it snow in the great hall, and that was only because Lavender was glaring him down after he said Hermione’s name while he was unconscious in the hospital wing. He felt crappy and his emotions were so intense he unknowingly made it snow. Here he’s trapped in a muggle cafe, with his best friend and the girl he loves. He’s probably scared, and angry but most of all protective. He wants to defeat these Death Eaters without anything happening to his team. His emotions are intense again and that allows him to cast a powerful non-verbal spell. No, not even a spell, a curse. We’ve seen Hermione cast non-verbal spells loads of times but even here she says the curse to ensure its potency. Ron is concentrated and disciplined enough in this moment to curse a Death Eater without any words at all.
Being quite clever, Lily waited until a day when her father was thoroughly frazzled, beset on all sides by sycophants at an MLE affair, becoming shouty and very contrary, and certain to forget the conversation as soon as it was over.
"Dad, did you lose your Parselmouth abilities after you beat Voldemort?" she asked.
"Yes," Harry said, perplexed. "Why?"
"No reason. Oh, look. Is that James over there stealing the keys to the holding cells?"
And when Harry whirled about to locate the inveterate vexation that was James, she skipped off to the courtyard.
"It’s a bit worrisome," she said.
"Ssssomething of an underssstatement," answered the snake.

"Lily. Lovely Lily. Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman. She had a way of seeing the beauty in others, even, and perhaps most especially, when that person couldn’t see it in themselves."

Ginny Weasley is a “person of interest in Salazar Opera House arson and bombing.” HOLY SHIT CAN I READ THAT
#I really like this entire article too#but I especially like this passage because this is a very large definition of who Ron Weasley is and the movies do him no justice#it’s true Ron doesn’t handle his jealousy well initially#but it’s also true that he’s young and petty#it doesn’t excuse his behavior but instead gives way to him growing older and learning to deal with it#I’ve seldom been the more affluent person in my groups of friends and even still while i am admittedly very well off#there’s limitations to that#and i still feel bitter resentment towards those who can afford everything they want#(and I acknowledge too that they can afford those things becaue they have jobs and make it happen)#Ron is not always a good person but he’s a great character for his complexities which seldom get the deep exploration they deserve#and the entire article going on to explain how these are things that brought Ron and Hermione to better understanding is lovely#I still have a lot of love for Ron and Hermione’s relationship and it’s realness#that they are going to have complications#that they will have to work to overcome things#but when Ron realized he did indeed love Hermione and he did indeed want to do something about it he made changes#he didn’t just change things around Hermione he started changing HIMSELF as a person#he wanted to become someone she could respect and love back#i am married to a man who isn’t into all the same things as i am#we don’t always have intellectualy stimulating conversations that i can get from other people#but that doesn’t make me love him any less nor do I enjoy his company any less for it#to say that Ron can never make Hermione happy or satisfy her intellectual needs is silly esp when you say Harry is better suited#like Harry can fulfill that any better? please (x)
