The Magic BeginsSaddest Scene
Harry and the Mirror of Erised

It shows us nothing more or less than the deepest, more desperate desire of our hearts. You, who have never known your family, see them standing around you. Ronald Weasley, who has always been overshadowed by his brothers, sees himself standing alone, the best of all of them. However, this mirror will give us neither knowledge or truth. Men have wasted away before it, entranced by what they have seen, or been driven mad, not knowing if what it shows is real or even possible.

Watching Harry experience the family that he could never really have broke me in half. The ghost of his mother’s touch on his shoulder and his reaction always brings me to tears. Harry was the golden boy, the boy who lived, and a hero - but many forget he is human and needed his mother and father just as much, if not more, than the rest of us.
