Rowling wrote Hermione to eschew stereotypes. She doesn’t end up with the hero; she is never there to function as Harry’s love interest. She prefers Arithmancy to Divination in school. Hermione is also a total badass, despite her prim and proper reputation. (…) So often, female characters are allowed to be aggressive or rebellious, but in exchange are stripped of any traditionally feminine qualities and instead are forced to pick up traditionally masculine traits. However, Hermione is never made to do that. Most notably, she is written to be highly logical AND emotionally expressive, a combination not commonly afforded to most of today’s leading ladies.

"Mr. Moony presents his compliments to Professor Snape and begs him to keep his abnormally large nose out of other people’s business…" can we please talk about the fact that Moony was literally around the corner while the map was insulting Snape. And he 99.99999% knew it was going to happen and he probably laughed himself to sleep that night and whispered a thank you to James, Sirius, and Peter for thinking to put that wonderful little defense mechanism in.

ineffable
[in-ef-uh-buhl]
(adjective) In the list of one of the most 100 beautiful words in the English language, ineffable’s beauty lies in its flowing sound and meaning. Ineffable describes the sentiment of being unable to express something in words because it is too extreme to communicate; words cannot possibly do justice at this particular moment.  (via wordsnquotes)
