BUT DO YOU REALIZE WHAT THIS MEANS
HARRY POTTER HAD SO MUCH RESPECT FOR THAT AMAZING WOMAN THAT THE MOMENT SHE WAS DISRESPECTED HE WAS FILLED WITH SUCH A POTENT RAGE HE WAS ABLE TO CAST AN UNFORGIVABLE CURSE
Okay so I never (like… never) put captions on posts. I’m breaking my own rule for this one.
This scene makes me so fucking emotional and it just reinforces the fact that Minerva McGonagall is such an important (yet drastically forgotten and overlooked) character and person in Harry’s life.
The only other person Harry on whom Harry tried to use the Cruciatus curse was Bellatrix, right after she killed Sirius.
The indignation and hatred Harry felt toward Amycus Carrow spitting in Professor McGonagall’s face equalled that of Bellatrix killing his godfather.
I could go on about how much of a mother figure McG was to Harry for ages (like hELLO SHE WAITED ALL DAY SITTING ON A WALL IN HER ANIMAGUS IN LITTLE WHINGING TO SEE WHERE DUMBLEDORE WAS LEAVING BABY HARRY AND THEN TOTALLY TOLD HIM OFF BECAUSE SHE KNEW THE DURSLEYS WOULD TREAT HIM LIKE SHIT).
But the fact that this scene was left out of the final film - that Harry fucking torturing a Death Eater was deemed not important enough - makes me so angry because this scene shows so much of his character and his deep love and admiration for such an important person… And we all know that Dame Maggie Smith would have killed this on screen.
To add just a bit more emphasis to people who didn’t already know/don’t remember, Harry doesn’t even use a forbidden curse on Voldemort.
[The spell that Harry used in the final battle was Expelliarmus. Voldemort’s kill spell was actually reflected (even though it is an unblockable spell) because Harry was the true owner of the Elder Wand and so it was weakened in Voldemorts arms.]

We had fish and chips, and she drove me home and she tucked me up and she told me a story.
I’ve discovered there’s a lot you can do inside haunted houses.
For example, you can:
- be in a shampoo commercial
- start a boy band:
- spot some choice booty:
- break into song:
- see some people in frankly offensive outfits:
- attend a metal show:
- listen to some sick jams:
- discover zombieism:
- sample some tasty snacks:
- watch someone get burned bad:
- find something you really like:
- find something you really, really like:
- find something you REALLY REALLY LIKE:
- and wonder if you left the stove on:
