#let me tell you how much i admire these motherly figures. perhaps it must be because the author herself is a mother, but then again, the way she portrayed the role of a mother in the books was so beautiful and touching, it makes us all want to cry. #think about narcissa who LIED AT THE DARK LORD’S FACE just to find out if her son is alive. and she wasn’t even sure is harry was telling her the truth, but she believed him and she believed him because that was what she wanted: for her son to be safe. and do you remember when she tried to free her son from that task voldemort gave him? she swore that she would do ANYTHING, ANYTHING for her son not to fulfill that task and she doesn’t even care if she’d doing the right thing or not. #think about lily, who sacrificed HER LIFE for the sake of her son. lily who, even at the last moments of her life, thought of protecting her son. lily who, loved her son so much that her love protected him even after she passed on. #and of course, think about molly, who raised SEVEN CHILDREN and was able to raise them well, despite their financial difficulties. molly who fought by her children’s side, molly who faced voldemort’s best lieutenant to defend her only daughter. molly who lost a son to the war. molly who loved harry and hermione like her own. #THESE BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING MOTHERS. I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH HOW OVERWHELMING THEIR LOVE IS TO THEIR CHILDREN AND TO THOSE WHO ARE NOT THEIR OWN.
