JK Rowling- Harry Potter.
Endymion and Selene (Ubaldo Gandolfi, 1694)
Selene, the goddess of the moon, loved the mortal Endymion. She asked Endymion’s father, Zeus, to grant him eternal youth so that he would never leave her. Zeus granted her wish and put him into an eternal sleep. Every night, Selene visited him where he slept.
Six years ago today, Deathly Hallows was released in bookstores all over the world.
Six years ago today, we held in our hands the last and final installement in the epic tale of Harry Potter.
Six years ago today, kids and adults alike began their final first reading of a Harry Potter book.
Six years ago today, we lost Charity Burbage, Mad-Eye Moody, Hedwig, Rufus Scrimgeour, Ted Tonks, Dobby, Fred Weasley, Severus Snape, Remus Lupin, Tonks (no first name out of utter respect), Colin Creevey and countless others, named and unnamed, who died fighting for the Wizarding World.
Six years ago today we laughed. We cried. We gawked in awe at the twists and turns that only Jo Rowling herself could pull off.
But most importantly, six years ago today we thought this series was over. But in this last half decade, we’ve grown stronger than ever. In the last six years, we’ve even picked up thousands of new fans along the way.
In this last decade, we have learned something crucial, that she herself put best:
The stories we love do live on in us forever, so whether you come back by page or by screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.
These books taught us life lessons that we never could have dreamed of. Dumbledore taught us that the battle of good versus evil is not always cut and dry, and that sometimes we must pick between what is right and what is easy.
We learned that there are bad people in this world, but as long as there are people willing to fight for what is right, and to fight for love, the world can still be a good place.
So thank you, Jo. Thank you for making these books relevant in our lives in ways we never could have imagined. Thank you for giving us a childhood that we will carry with us for the rest of our lives.
Thanks for all of it, Jo.
thank you, harry

Okay, I’m having a moment. Let me have a minute to get over this video. Shit I mean … This nearly killed me. I often type into my tags that I’m crying but this time I really mean it. Hp has been over for a year now and I still think that it’s the best damn thing that ever happened to me. And it will never truly end for me. Because I’m sitting here crying over these characters, over this fantastic series which gave me so much. Harry Potter was the first book I’ve ever read and it changed me. I guess I’ll never find the right words to explain my love for these books and movies … But I just wanna say one thing: Joanne K. Rowling … THANK YOU SO, I OWE YOU SO MUCH. Just thank you FOR MAKING MY CHILDHOOD A BETTER AND MAGICAL TIME.
Really though. Wow.
00:34 is how far I got in the video when I felt hot tears streaming down my face. Being a part of the Potter generation is like nothing I have ever experienced since. It was the book that taught me to read by myself, it was the story that I clung too in the darkest most depressing hours of my childhood, and it gave me the morals that I still hold close to my heart today as I enter adulthood. It gave me hope to believe in the idea that there is more than meets the eye in our world - and that kind of hope, when you’re a child, is everything. It was a secret world and escape to us as children, but as adults/older teenagers the tale of love and courage, friends and bravery is as relevant as ever.
I opened Philosopher’s Stone when I was seven.
I am nineteen now.
And I now and always will consider the story one of my greatest teachers.
I think I got something in my eye. I swear!
I cried everywhere during this whole thing. Harry Potter was my escape. When my parents fought, and my brother yelled, I would hide in my room and read Harry Potter until my vision blurred. I got teased in middle school because I insisted clutching the books to my chest as I walked down the halls. Despite that, I always ran to them. To the Golden Trio. To the Weasley’s. To Dumbledore. To Hogwarts. I’m so in love with the universe that is Harry Potter. It has been and always will be my safe haven.
Because Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.
