The Final 24! Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 24 Days

There are now only 24 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters and we're in the final stretch of quotes from the first half of the last Harry Potter book leading up to the release of the film.  We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Today, we have a special rundown of quotes which weren't able to go online during our recent infestation of nargles.


Here is today's quote!
"It's the only spell she ever has trouble with," Harry told a completely bemused Mrs. Cattermole. "Bit unfortunate, really . . ."
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "The Muggle-Born Registration Commission"

  • 25 Days
A great collective sigh issued from the assembled witches and wizards as Monsieur Delacour and Fleur came walking up the aisle, Fleur gliding, Monsieur Delacour bouncing and beaming. Fleur was wearing a very simple white dress and seemed to be emitting a strong, silvery glow. While her radiance usually dimmed everyone else by comparison, today it beautified everybody it fell upon. Ginny and Gabrielle, both wearing golden dresses, looked even prettier than usual, and once Fleur had reached him, Bill did not look as though he had ever met Fenrir Greyback.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "The Wedding "

  • 26 Days
"This is it," Harry said, trying to bring them inside the glow of his own astonished certainty. "This explains everything. The Deathly Hallows are real, and I've got one -- maybe two --"

He held up the Snitch.

"-- and You-Know-Who's chasing the third, but he doesn't realize . . . he just thinks it's a powerful wand --"

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "The Deathly Hallows "

  • 27 Days
"-- why are we here? I thought we were going back to Grimmauld Place?"

Hermione took a deep breath. She looked close to tears.

"Harry, I don't think we're going to be able to go back there."

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "The Thief"

  • 28 Days
. . . She leaned forward and held out The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

"Look at that symbol," she said, pointing to the top of a page. Above what Harry assumed was the title of the story (being unable to read runes, he could not be sure), there was a picture of what looked like a triangular eye, its pupil crossed with a vertical line.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "Godric's Hollow"

  • 29 Days
He could see it: the Fidelius Charm must have died with James and Lily. The hedge had grown wild in the sixteen years since Hagrid had taken Harry from the rubble that lay scattered amongst the waist-high grass. Most of the cottage was still standing, though entirely covered in dark ivy and snow, but the right side of the top floor had been blown apart; that, Harry was sure, was where the curse had backfired.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "Bathilda's Secret "

  • 30 Days
"Expelliarmus!" Harry yelled.
"That's him, it's him, it's the real one!"
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "The Seven Potters"

They’re very exciting. But I wish I could get my avatar back. Is it the nargles again?

i love when harry tries to bring them into the “glow.” man, you think they might’ve believed him after he was SO right about draco the year before.

@valeria-johanna – did you by any chance change something elsewhere on your profile? sometimes, you have to reset the avatar after that.

@abandonedboyjon – I think it started like that, but I have now tried multiple times to reset it, and it just won’t.

Wonderful quotes! The last hppy moment for the trio, and the fear began. Seeing his parents’ graves and the house blown apart like that must have given Harry pause, and it sure made the reader realize how tough things looked for Harry.
