Favorite Harry Moment
The first wonderful Harry moment that pops up for me is in a choice that he made.
Horace Slughorn came out of retirement to teach at Hogwarts. He was well known to hand-pick students that he saw particular talent in and brought them all together to be a part of the Slug Club. He boasts about former Slug Club members being exceptionally well-off and leaders in their fields. Naturally, he does all he can to recruit "the boy who lived".
When Slughorn threw a Christmas party that Harry couldn't get out of, he has to invite someone quickly because Romilda Vane is heading a group of girls all set on slipping Harry a love potion. He can't take his first choice, so he invites Luna Lovegood.
Harry: "We’re supposed to bring guests, so I thought you might like…I mean…just as friends, you know. But if you don’t want to…"
Luna: "Oh no, I’d love to go with you as friends! Nobody’s ever asked me to a party before, as a friend! Is that why you dyed your eyebrow, for the party? Should I dye mine too?"
Harry: "No. That was a mistake. I’ll get Hermione to put it right for me. So I’ll meet you in the entrance hall at eight o’clock."
I was grinning so much during this scene. Particularly because the eye-brow bit is hilarious, but also because friendship is treasured by Luna. She is the one person he could've invited that would truly appreciate the gesture of friendship that it held.
What's your favorite "Harry" moment??
