    Summary

    The awkward boy with the flaming hair and the cheerful grin disguising the glumness beneath -- the one the rest of the world deems unexceptional: he walks in to Harry’s carriage, asks for a place to sit, no one else will have him, you understand. (Harry understands.)

    Summary

    “You can’t help the existence of hope or the lack thereof. Hope is the last thing to die, right before we do. Hoping is different. It’s an action, it can become a permanent state, and it can kill you. Beware hoping, Dr. Brand.”
