Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 31 Days

There are now only 31 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters!  We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. To make up for yesterday's tech glitch, here are quotes for today and yesterday!

But they were not living, thought Harry: They were gone. The empty words could not disguise the fact that his parents' moldering remains lay beneath snow and stone, indifferent, unknowing. And tears came before he could stop them, boiling hot and then instantly freezing on his face, and what was the point of wiping them off or pretending? He let them fall, his lips pressed hard together, looking down at the thick snow hiding from his eyes the place where the last of Lily and James lay, bones now, surely, or dust, not knowing or caring that their living son stood so near, his heart still beating, alive because of their sacrifice and close to wishing, at this moment, that he was sleeping under the snow with them.

"Where's my wand, Hermione?"

She was biting her lip, and tears swam in her eyes.

"Harry . . ."

"Where's my wand?"

She reached down beside the bed and held it out to him.

The holly and phoenix wand was nearly severed in two. One fragile strand of phoenix feather kept both pieces hanging together. The wood had splintered apart completely. Harry took it into his hands as though it was a living thing that had suffered a terrible injury.

Nice to be able to get back on the site – it’s been about 3 days that the portal hasn’t been working for me!

I’m glad that JKR let us see moments when Harry wasn’t feeling so Gryffindor-brave – when he was ready to pack it all in and seek oblivion. Don’t we all have times like that? It humanizes him more.

Harry had to endure so much, I’m glad it didn’t change him for the worse.
