Tribute to Hogwarts.

So last night, the internets informed me that yesterday - May 2nd, 2013 - was the 15th anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts. Like, apparently in the canon timeline, the battle began just as the clock rolled over to May 2nd, 1998, 15 years ago. (1998 was 15 years ago, you guys. What even.) Harry Potter has never been a major fandom for me, but it's one of those things that every time I go back to it, I just have a lot of Feels all over again. And I am absolutely positive that if the ex-bff and I were still friends, we'd be having some post-anniversary celebration Harry Potter-themed party today. She was a major fan. Anyways, I spent about an hour before bed watching some Harry Potter vids and I thought I'd share two of them now. In memory of all things Harry Potter, even though it's a day late.

All this thinking about Harry Potter has made me happy. You know, I had a lot of post-series ideas while I was reading the books and then she did the jump forward at the end of Deathly Hallows and it kind of ruined my taste for it. But now, my mind is turning over a few ideas and idk, maybe I'll end up writing some Harry Potter one of these days. Something outside of the Burrowing 'verse even. Maybe give George as close to a happy ending as he can get without Fred. Or some fics about Teacher!Neville. As if I need more story ideas.
