this means so much to me. so much

Okay but like actually this is the most thoughtful gift IN THE WHOLE WORLD.
It might seem to make more sense to give Ron the precious family heirloom (remember that Molly’s brother Fabian died in the First Wizarding War; Molly has held onto his watch out of sentimentality since then). But Ron is the sixth son in his (canonically financially-struggling) family. He’s been forced into hand-me-downs his whole life. If he’d gotten the watch with a dent in the back, he wouldn’t have appreciated it; he’d only have seen the flaw. And if his mum bought Harry a new watch instead of getting Ron one, Ron would have resented that. A new watch was a worthwhile expense to get Ron a rare taste of the luxury and individual attention he has always craved.
Harry, though. Harry has money; Harry has new things. What Harry does not have is family. Harry is an orphan. Other than one photo album and the invisibility cloak, he doesn’t have anything that came with family history attached. What Molly does here is give him that; she makes him part of the family, symbolically, by giving him an emotionally significant if physically imperfect item. She gives him love in a tangible form.

This makes me CRY


These are exactly the same thoughts I had when I originally read the book. :)

SEASON 4!!! FAVORITE SEASON!!!

Kicking it off with my favorite ballroom we have Katua <3 Joshua Allen, who is a hip hop dancer and Katee Shean, a contemporary dancer. Neither of them should have been THIS fabulous. Joshua Allen is probably my all time favorite contestant of any season. When I first watched Season 4 I couldn’t believe that Joshua was a dancer because he’s built like a football player, he’s got those big thick muscles. When I saw him do hip hop for the first time I couldn’t believe that he could move with such speed and grace, but I still couldn’t picture him being good at any other style of dance. But then he was great at EVERYTHING. I loved that he surprised me every week and never more so than when he and Katee nailed this Samba. It NEVER fails to make me happy.

sytycd-geek:

Favorite group routine from Season 8 is “My Discarded Men” choreographed by Ray Leeper. I think this makes the favorite list just because I love Eartha Kitt, I love all seven of these ladies and this dance looked damn good on all of them.

sytycd-geek:

During the package, when they introduced the ball and I heard the concept I thought this was going to suck. But then it was actually gorgeous. Jacque and Will had really good chemistry and they are both gorgeous dancers. I ended up really loving this. Also, Will is gorgeous. Here is “99 Red Balloons” choreographed by Sean Cheesman.

sytycd-geek:

Even though I’m pretty sure Season 9 is my least favorite season there were some gems in this season. My favorite contemporary number of the season is “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” choreographed by Stacey Tookey. It features ballerina Eliana Gerard and All Star Alex Wong. The two of them are so technically astounding and then you put them in this wonderful piece to this wonderful song and you get wonderfulness.

The beautiful Disney Art of Rodel Gonzalez.

The world didn’t end. 

No it didn’t.

sytycd-geek:

What a flipping perfect routine for these two. I absolutely loved this. It was tailor made for the two of these to just be adorable and gorgeous together. It looked so effortless and joyful from both of them. I could have watched this for eight hours it’s adorable. Also, I want to wear Valerie’s dress and just spin around for a while. Here is “I’ve Got the World on a String” choreographed by Spencer Liff.

sytycd-geek:

So for a ballroom boy Ryan did really great in this number but this routine is all about Ellenore for me. Her character and subtle movements are hypnotizing. This routine is one of my favorite Broadways of all time. It’s really well performed and such an interesting idea.

sytycd-geek:

I am still astounded by how effective this routine is. It gives me chills when I watch it. This is yet another example of how great a storyteller Travis Wall is. The story is so clear and so touching. Like my stomach still turns at certain moments in this piece. Neil and Kent both surprised the hell out of me with how mature they were and how amazing the acting was.
