(which seems to be an actual thing, for all of you asking me in my inbox. Though no one has gotten back to me about what exactly the sunday times said. 2 days until wonderland though.)
"Love isn’t always immediate, and it doesn’t always come from a place of strength. Sometimes love is strongest between people who have seen each other at their ugliest and most damaged. Lily Evans knew who James Potter was before he decided that he wanted to be a better person, knew him during the time when his callousness and carelessness did real damage. Fleur Delacour knew that her husband’s greatest beauty wasn’t in his unmarked face, but in his person, just as hers wasn’t her physical perfection, but her persistence. Ron knew Hermione when she was a priggish scold and a coward. Hermione knew Ron when his privilege was exposed and his will broke. That they love each other anyway, and that they help each other become heroes, is a truer illustration of the power of love than the idea that it’s magic.”
this is the good stuff thats coming from this bombshell. it’s provoking actual intellectual discussion in some corners of the fandom. not just flame/shipping wars and death threats.
