The theme of this week’s Harry Potter Moment of the Week is the “Bracest character moment”.
I discussed this one with my other half and we managed to narrow it down to a few favourites (are you noticing a theme yet?!) but eventually I managed to pick a winner 😉
In case you’re curious, here are a few of the non-winning contenders:(There’s one more I haven’t mentioned because I’m using it in an upcoming MotW)
Severus Snape – definitely brave, but he was brave in long term, and picking one perfect moment to sum it up was tough
Harry – Honestly, is it just me who feels that the majority of time Harry was closer to reckless than brave? Although I really really thought about picking The Forest Again
Narcissa – a minor but key moment in the Deathly Hallows.
Neville Longbottom – Two obvious choices here, facing Voldemort and also facing down the trio in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
Removing her parents’ memories, not only of Harry and the wizarding world, but of herself, has to be one of the bravest moments in the series. In that moment, she put Harry, the future of the wizarding world, and the safety of her parents, above everything else, knowing that if things went wrong she might never see them again and they wouldn’t even mourn her.
Heart-breaking, selfless, and undeniably brave.
