me: this book destroyed my life
me: *add to the favorite books list*

I solemnly swear that I’m up to no good


"We're born with millions of little lights shining in the dark, one lights up, every time you feel love in your heart ."

Somewhere inside me is a merciful, forgiving person. Somewhere there is a girl who tries to understand what people are going through, who accepts that people do evil things and that desperation leads them to darker places than they ever imagined. I swear she exists, and she hurts for the repentant boy I see in front of me.

But if I saw her, I wouldn’t recognize her.

 "Harry waited, every fiber of him hoping, praying… . If it hadn’t worked… if it wasn’t coming… He seemed to be looking at everything around him through some sort of shimmering, transparent barrier, like a heat haze, which made the enclosure and the hundreds of faces around him swim strangely…" // triwizard tournament part1 (part2)
