“After all this time?” “Always.” This saying is from Harry Potter: The Deathly Hallows Part 2 holds the most significant meaning to me. To tell you why this quote is significant to me, I must talk about the meaning behind the quote. The meaning behind “Always”, is that Severus Snape, the potions professor, is still in love with Lily Potter, Harry Potter’s mother. Then “After all this time” is from Professor Dumbledore, the headmaster of Hogwarts, asking Severus Snape if he stills love Lily Potter after it being sixteen years since she was murdered. After this background of the quote, it might explain why this quote is significant to me. If not, here is why, I love the meaning under the word “Always”. This meaning is the love Severus has for …show more content…
Hermione Granger, a witch at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, went to the Yule Ball in her fourth year of school, meaning she was fifteen. Hermione really wanted her crush to ask her to the dance, but that did not happen, this happens to most girls. The crush’s name was Ronald Weasley, Harry Potter’s best friend. He was not going to ask Hermione until it was a last resort. By then Hermione had already said yes to Viktor Krum, a famous seeker. (A seeker is a player on a team in a game called quidditch.) Let’s say that the Yule Ball is prom, when that time comes around almost everyone is really hoping their crush will ask them to the dance. However, does your crush really ask you to the dance? For me it never came true. Therefore, I can relate to Hermione, because we both did not get to go to the dance with guy that we really wanted to. This means that this part of the Harry Potter movies is …show more content…
One of the biggest problems Harry Potter, the hero that saves the wizarding world, was dealing with was a male peer that bullied him almost twenty-four/seven. The bully’s name was Draco Malfoy, who was the son of a follower of Lord Voldemort. In my opinion, he was acting like he hated Harry Potter in the later movies because his father expects Draco to be just like him. These events have an underling meaning to them, that real people can connect with. The first one, that we can really connect to is a peer being a bully. For example, I was bullied a lot in my high school years from one of my male peers. Was the guy only bullying me because of his father? Most likely not, but I was still bullied almost every time he saw me, just like Harry Potter. Have you ever got into a situation just because someone expects you to be just like them? You do that one situation even though you do not want to be a part of it. This is not one of those good situations in real life, but they still happen. What goes on with Draco and his father reminds me of a friend trying to get the other friend to do something that is illegal. Most of the time, that friend still does the illegal thing, even though he or she does not want to because it is expected of them to be a cool

    She had to quickly leave the prince, losing her glass slipper, due to the spell that breaks at midnight that fairy godmother had given her. The prince then searches all over the kingdom for the one maiden whose foot is the perfect fit for the lost slipper. When Cinderella is eventually found, they return to the Kingdom where they our married and live happily ever after. I believe Walt Disney changed the story from the three-day festival to the one-night ball because the children watching would ultimately get tired of the same story of Cinderella dancing with the prince three nights in a row. Walt shortened the Brothers Grimm story to keep the children more intrigued.…

    Have you ever wanted to live in a world where people can have magical abilities? And in this world, teenagers with magical abilities attend a boarding school to practice witchcraft and wizardry. Sounds enticing, right? Well, it’s all fun and games until a group of wizard supremacists attempts to purge the Wizarding World of genetically impure witches and wizards. In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the main character, Harry Potter; is thirteen years old, the only known person to survive the “killing curse” (which orphaned him), and he is the “chosen one.” At such a young age, Harry has the role of being the “hero” thrust upon him, but he is too young to live up to the standards.…

    Nothing like this has ever happened to me. My opinion on the portrayed incident is that I would feel sympathetic towards the guy. The man 's behavior is not deviant but the girlfriend was she obviously was leading the man to believe she was someone she was not. Deviant is an adjective describing a person or thing that deviates from the accepted norm of social and sexual behavior. Onlookers sympathized with the man but they were hesitant to speak to the woman however they did reach out to help help the man feel like he could do better and perhaps it was not a marriage meant to be.…

    In Perrault’s version of Cinderella, Cinderella runs away twice from the prince before the clock strikes midnight for the sake of embarrassment from her family. It wasn’t until the third encounter where the Prince goes to Cinderella’s house where we see the missing glass slipper fitting perfectly in Cinderella’s foot. In Two-Man Luge, a similar pattern is present. The main character has his first encounter with Paresh at Jessie’s (the main character’s ten year old cousin) fundraiser. The second encounter was during the protagonist’s practicing for the Olympic Winter games (luging), where he realizes that Paresh was also representing Canada, but for a different sporting event (bobsleighing).…
