Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme created by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts and hosted here @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself! How to join up & upcoming topics here.
Happy Potter-Thursday everyone! Fall finally seems to have arrived over here so I'm basking in cooler temperatures, rainy days and no humidity. YAY! And just in time too because we're talking Quidditch today:
Favorite Quidditch Moment? From the matches, practices or even the Quidditch World Cup
I enjoy Quidditch but I'm not a hardcore fangirl. It's a sport after all and I'm not terribly sporty... though I'm sure if there were magic, flying brooms and such I could get into it. Even I have to admit that every single Quidditch match was thrilling beyond any Muggle sport. I can vividly recall Harry seeing 'the Grim' a.k.a Sirius Black at a match in his third year. The Quidditch World Cup was incredible, especially with Fred and George predicting the outcome. Every time Harry came out victorious I felt like I'd won right along with him - and every time he got banned from playing I was grateful that Ginny was around to save the day. (by the way, if Harry and Ginny's first kiss had been on the pitch it'd totally have gotten my vote here ♥)
So what I'm saying it that it was hard to chose just one favorite moment but in the end, I had to go with this little gem:
Harry catching the Snitch in his mouth in his very first match.
As special as it is that Harry won his very first match, that's not the reason I picked this moment. I picked it because of what that particular Snitch comes to mean for Harry in Deathly Hallows and how it proves that Dumbledore thought of everything to get our Boy Who Lived through the impossible.
