#this was my greatest tragedy of harry potter you know#but neville oh neville#you knew from the start you did#your family wouldn’t have hid anything from you#you knew from the moment you could understand#that someone did something terrible to your parents#and you couldn’t do anything to fix them#and you couldn’t do anything to bring them back even when they were standing right in front of you#and i wonder how long it took you to know#maybe it was by yourself or your uncles and aunts told you#but i wonder how long it took for you to realize that your parents were titans#and they adored you#and they were proud of you and always would be#and that you were their son#and that you were just as much of a heroic figure to them#as they were to you (via tin-pan-ali)
I sit beside the fire and think
of people long ago,
and people who will see a world
that I shall never know.
But all the while I sit and think
of times there were before,
I listen for returning feet
and voices at the door
"What are we holding on to, Sam?"
My own adventure turned out to be quite different… I’m not like you Bilbo
It is a thing unheard of that a man should be as cold as ice and as bold as fire.

He thought of that forest of Montfermeil; they had crossed it together, Cosette and he; he thought of the weather, of the trees without leaves, of the forest without birds, of the sky without sun; it is all the same, it was charming… she had her great doll in her arms, she had put her louis d’or in the pocket of this apron, she laughed, they walked holding each other by the hand, she had nobody but him in the world.
It was an awkward and impossible romance, given that the object of my affection was wholly fictional and living somewhere in Nova Scotia around the turn of the century. I knew that Gilbert Blythe, he who taunted Anne of Green Gables with the nickname “carrots” and pulled on her braids, wasn’t real. And yet, I had to believe in the idea of Gilbert Blythe; I was in love with the sheer dream of a boy that falls for the smart outcast and then doesn’t give up.
