someone made a really good point in the commentary of a post once which basically boiled down to the fact that james and lily’s patronuses are complements of each other (stag / doe) as opposed to snape and lily’s (doe / doe) which just goes to show how love and obsession are not the same thing at all thank u for ur time

To the Muggles, the area surrounding the palace of Beauxbatons housed only a sprawling monastery and convent. It was nothing of note, a place largely disregarded, though now and then a nobleman wishing to send his Muggle daughter there would be gently rebuffed and pointed elsewhere; this branch of this particular order, it seemed, was very, very exclusive.
And yet, over the years, posing as holy men and women, the students of Beauxbatons made connections all over Muggle France, writing to poets and great thinkers, escaping from the school on weekends to meet in some grand salon near Paris, and disseminating amongst themselves, little by little, principles which belonged not to an old religious order cloistered on a mountainside, but to all who dreamed of a new kind of world. They lived not lives of magical seclusion, but instead embraced the changing country around them, the new ideas, the great philosophies. Many found themselves more or less long-lasting positions in the Muggle world. Many took up arms in conflicts that they could have easily ignored. And, once, long ago, one graduate even became the mistress of a famous royal personage.
She would later invite classmates and younger alums to Versailles. These included, of course, the members of Beauxbatons’s wildest, most uninhibited class: the class of 1683. They delighted in making faces at the Sun King when he wasn’t looking.
Aaaaahahhhhhhhhhhhhhh I just found THE WAITING PLACE ON AO3 and HOLY SHIT I FORGOT ALL ABOUT THAT FIC BUT FUCKING SERIOUSLY THOUGH. I think I’m about to go ass over tea kettle BACK INTO the Harry Potter fandom.

That first day we were trying to get Dan’s eyes to be green because that’s what they are in the book.
And Dan was wearing contact lenses.
He was allergic to them and after we made the decision to remove them, but the first day we tried to work through it.
So for the last scene when he’s saying good-bye to Hagrid you can see almost his eyes tearing and his eye a little bit swollen and it feels like he’s about to cry.
He probably was but he never complained.
We removed the contacts and he’s never had green eyes since.
The eye colour thing always use to annoy me but now I feel bad, poor daniel!
At least they tried.
i feel bad for little dan rad, because expecting a little boy to wear contacts in so many scenes is ridiculous anyway, (allergic or not)
but if they can CGI like 80% of the damn films, they can make his BLUE EYES GREEN. like really i’m not an expert but i’m sure it was possible, but nope
MAKE EYES GREEN!!??? NO MUST NOT DO. MUST LEAVE BLUE!!!
(but can cgi whole dragons, centaurs and trolls etc)
BUT EYES TOO MUCH WORK!!!! TOO MUCH MONEY SPENT ON STUPID EYES!!! IMPORTANT PART OF STORY BUT NO!!!! CAN;T DO!!!
