The Ravenclaw common room is located high up within a tower and known for its panoramic views of the school grounds. It is a large circular room filled with bookcases and blue furnishings. It is also one of the only common rooms to feature a statue of their house founder. The entrance requires no password but the solving of a riddle asked by a bronze eagle knocker. Incorrect answers result in having to wait outside for someone else to answer their riddle successfully. Once inside you can sit under the impressive starry domed ceiling and listen to the relaxing sounds of the wind whistling around the exterior of the tower windows.

A breeze ruffled the neat hedges of Privet Drive, which lay silent and tidy under the inky sky, the very last place you would expect astonishing things to happen. Harry Potter rolled over inside his blankets without waking up. One small hand closed on the letter beside him and he slept on, not knowing he was special, not knowing he was famous, not knowing he would be woken in a few hours’ time by Mrs. Dursley’s scream as she opened the front door to put out the milk bottles, nor that he would spend the next few weeks being prodded and pinched by his cousin Dudley… He couldn’t know that at this very moment, people meeting in secret all over the country were holding up their glasses and saying in hushed voices: “To Harry Potter - the boy who lived!”

So I’m having issues stressing to my parents how depressed I always am and I want them to know. But every time I get close to bringing it up when we fight I never do because it’s embarrassing. I’m scared to maybe because it’s a vulnerability and I’m not emotionally close to my parents in that way. Idk what to do and I know I don’t have that many followers but someone has to know something. I just need help.
"I really don’t think Harry and Luna work. I was a bit surprised that people were you know, like asking me that. Luna always has her head in the clouds and she is interested in all of these kooky things which is wonderful, I really love that about her, and it’s wonderful, but her life just doesn’t fit together with Harry’s. He doesn’t need all that. I also don’t think she, you know, would appreciate all of his constant negativity. Luna doesn’t look for negativity in her life at all and Harry just has way too much of that. There is so much glamour around being the boy-who-lived and he has to deal with all of these high expectations. He really has a lot to put up with you know. What he needs is to be like, grounded, he needs someone feisty like Ginny, because she can like, kick him into gear and make him get over himself. Luna can’t do that and I don’t think she would want to. She isn’t a forceful personality at all. So yeah, I think Ginny is good for Harry and they keep each other in check."
No, but can you picture James at an Order meeting with Harry in his lap because they didn’t want to (or couldn’t) leave him with anyone and they’re all talking about the war and James is listening but he is also bouncing Harry up and down while Harry giggles into his shirt and please stop me because ouch?
