Most Inspirational Moment/Passage
Woah. This is another time when I feel like there are just too many moments AND passages to chose from. Instantly, my mind goes to the infamous 'The Forest Again' chapter from Deathly Hallows highlighting Harry's amazing courage and sacrifice...but man, I must have used that bit like 50 times now. I think you all get how much I adore that particular moment now. So... I guess I'll just have to pick my other favorite moments from DH! ;-D
To me, this entire chapter is so unbelievably poignant. With the loss of poor Dobby, Harry finds some much needed perspective. He finally stops being angry for the things about Dumbledore that he never knew, and instead focuses on the man he did know. He trusted Dumbledore and so he finally trusts him completely again. He makes a huge decision to let go of his desire for Hallows and continue on with the mission that Dumbledore had entrusted him with: finding Horcruxes. He makes his peace with the loss of his biggest inspiration and with all his strength, he carries on. ♥
And since it wouldn't seem right if I didn't give more than one answer every.single.time. Here's another favorite moment of mine:
It was a very special treat that Harry got to speak with Dumbledore again. Throughout DH I longed for Harry to be able to ask his mentor some questions, discuss everything they'd shared and make peace with how things had changed. I was over the moon when King's Cross made it possible. Dumbledore was very truthful and so very sweet as he admitted his worst failings to Harry, and especially when he praised The Boy Who Lived on being everything Dumbledore himself couldn't be. And after everything, he still gave Harry one last choice. Go on from here or return to war, one last time and end it all. *sobs* And his words inspire Harry to once again make the bravest choice and return into battle. Perfection.
