Harry Potter Moment #180

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 
Harry Potter Moment of the Week was created by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts  and is hosted here @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote or memory  from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!  How to join up &  upcoming topics here.

Hi! Hi!  How is everyone doing today?  How is the week going for you all?  We had a wicked blizzard hit us on Monday and they're calling for another significant snowfall/storm for today. I already have Mondays so that was fun but today I usually work until 7pm but I have a snow day. Yay! Let's forget the Muggle world though for a mo' and talk about everyone's favorite fictional mom:

Favorite Molly Weasley moment?

Molly Weasley is GOLD. That's all there is to it. Even when she's being your typical over-protective mom, she still manages to warm my heart and make me smile.  

One of my favorite aspects of Molly's personality is that even though she already had her hands full with 6 children, she never hesitated to welcome Harry Potter into her home and treat him as one of the family. ♥

When she butted heads with Sirius in OotP, it wasn't pleasant because I adore both Molly and Sirius. I could see both their points but I just didn't want there to be any tension between them. Especially not over Harry because I knew he loved them both too. Nonetheless, I have to mention this passage:

“[Harry’s]’s not your son,” said Sirius quietly. “He’s as good as,” said Mrs. Weasley fiercely.

Because despite Sirius having stepped up now, Molly has claimed Harry as her own and she will protect him as fiercely as her own children! If that doesn't give you feelings well I'm sorry, you're a robot. (Or a Dursley...)

But let's be honest. We all have a favorite Molly Weasley quote and for most of us, it's this one:


Nothing beats hearing a proper, polite older woman throwing out the B-word for good reason. And then proceeding to go to town on one of the most powerful witches around. Proving that Molly Weasley is a BAMF and the source of Ginny's awesome powers.

Spread the Molly Weasley love everyone!


  1. Yay for snow days! And for cool moms like Mrs. weasley lol. She looks awesome in that GIF.

  2. That second one IS the best Molly quote. Oh, I forgot about her and Sirius going at it. It made sense though - Harry was an honorary Weasley from the start.


  3. That Molly moment is everything! It still gives me the chills! No doubt she would've single handedly taken on Bellatrix, Voldemort, and all the Death Eaters to protect her family.

  4. LOL Not sure how I read this and posted my link but didn't get my comment in. I agree with everything here. I LOVED how welcoming she was to Harry and bringing him into their family even with how little resources they had and so many kids to care for. I too didn't like it when her and Sirius argued, though I could see both sides there. I think that moment where she goes to town on Bellatrix really showed a side of her people weren't sure about. She had fallen into tears over a boggart and just seemed more like the stay at home mom wizard so I don't think a lot of people were expecting her to step up and be a BAMF like that. Bellatrix experienced first-hand the momma bear protecting her cubs and I loved every minute of it.

  5. Molly is a goddess! She's absolutely brilliant! I just finished Deathly Hallows recently- and that part you mentioned was SO good. Love Molly.

  6. Yup, that's the line! But I really love having you outline the other favourite Molly moments that don't get brought up as much <3


I LOVE comments & do my best to return every one a.s.a.p. ♥
