Most people are really nice but some stare, like you`re some kind of zoo exhibit and not a real person with real feelings. Even when you take away all the glamour and attention and premieres and everything, it still comes down to the fact that I’m acting.
"I went off and read the books after the audition and I read the first four books in one sitting – you know – didn’t wash, didn’t eat, drove around with them on the steering wheel like a lunatic. I suddenly understood why my friends, who I’d thought were slightly backward, had been so addicted to these children’s books." - Jason Isaacs on the Harry Potter series
Happy 24rd Birthday Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson (15.04.1990)
never win and never lose,
there's nothing much to choose,
between the right and wrong.→ lucius malfoy
The first time she used his first name was no momentous occasion. They were in the kitchen. She and Pansy had been bantering about the ‘Most Shaggable Quidditch Player.’ (Krum had won out, being the only one either of them had actually gotten to see up close.) Pansy had said something about craving chocolate and Granger - the sneaky little bitch - apparently had her own secret stash, hidden at the back of the larder. She’d moved to get it and, when she’d reached the door, had half-turned to look at him, as if only then remembering his presence.
"Draco, do you want some?"
His pause lasted barely a fifth of a second. Granger didn’t seem to notice, her bushy head already disappearing into the cupboard, in search of chocolate treasure. But Pansy shot him a knowing smirk, one eyebrow arching like a question. He ignored her, moving to the kettle in an attempt to escape her smug smirk.
He decided that he liked the way she said his name. It sounded crisper on her tongue, without the drawl of a Slytherin, or the distaste of those who used it like an insult. There was no hidden agenda behind it. No power game. She said it simply because that was his name. And he liked that.
It frightened him that he liked that. He spent the next three weeks avoiding her."
"I don’t know where she came from but I really like Luna - really fun to write. She’s slightly out of step in many ways […] Luna is likely to believe ten impossible things before breakfast." - J.K. Rowling [x]
