Favorite Dumbledore Moment
Oh man, how do you even narrow something like this down? Dumbledore is a bloody genius and to me every word that comes out of his mouth and every thought that crosses his mind is of value. He's such an inspirational character and despite his past and his flaws, he's one of the wisest characters I've ever come across. I just love him to bits! So many of his moments stand out in my mind as defining to the series but I think one moment might just surpass the others for me:
Taking up a bigger role in Harry's magical education
From the very beginning of the series, I'd been hoping Dumbledore would step up and teach Harry on his own. So imagine my delight right at the start of Half-Blood Prince when Dumbledore personally picks up Harry at the Dursley's. After giving them a good old talking to, Dumbledore whisks Harry away on a mysterious stopover at Slughorn's before dropping the boy off at The Burrow. One of my favorite moments is the little talk Dumbledore and Harry have in the Weasley's shed where the old wizard offers up praise for the boy who lived - before promising that Harry will be taking special classes with him during the coming year! From the moment those one on one classes started, I was set. The interactions, conversations and planning that goes down between the two of them are some of my absolute favorite moments in the series. Their journey to the dreaded cave ^^ was terrifying, exciting and epic all at once. Even though it ends in heartbreak, it needed to happen that way and I wouldn't change a thing.
