Harry Potter MotW: Bravest character moment

Harry potter month

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

Hermione Granger

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.

 

Which do you think is the bravest character moment in Harry Potter?

  1. Ahhh I want to cry just thinking about how brave it was for Hermione to wipe her parent’s memories of EVERYTHING, INCLUDING HERSELF. That was undoubtedly beyond brave, not to mention selfless. Excellent winning moment ^^ Like you, I had more than one character/moment to feature but Harry going into the forest will always win out for me :*) I loved all the moments you mentioned though!

  2. All amazing picks! I admired Hermione’s resolve and was kind of glad she did what she did, made sure they’re safe. It was sad but better than alternative – everyone dying.
    I agree with Narcissa, too, I forgave her then at that time.
    Snape was brave but out of selfishness. I am not his fan so I’ll never fully agree on his bravery…
    Neville though, what a hero, awesome dude 😀

  3. All such brilliant choices here. I definitely agree with them. Imagine being faced with such a horrendous task :(. Reading all of these posts are giving me so many feeeeels!
