Rituals P19 If you’ve been going to Mass your entire life, you don’t need to wait for the Priest to tell you when to kneel, stand, or sit, you already know. You’ve been doing it your entire life at the same times during every Mass. It doesn’t take long to develop this ability to perform ritual without thinking about it. The more rituals you do, the easier it becomes. You get to a point where you feel the need for a ritual, even if it’s just to give thanks to the Gods.
Ron and Hermione - Ron adores giving gifts. After he gets his very first paycheck, he goes out and boughtHermione the new annotated edition of Hogwarts:A History. He wraps it clumsily in brown paper, and ties it with a messybow, and watches as Pigwidgeon hauled it off towards Hogwarts. He sleeps with Hermione’s overjoyed thank you letter under his pillow for a month (not that he would ever admit that, not even under the influence of Veritaserum).
I made it up; I made him Mr. Perfect. I was lucky to have people tell me bits and pieces of this speech over time. I was lucky to get away and to have him stay away long enough for me to get over him and to move on to someone infinitely better who showed me just how far from perfect he was. I'm very lucky that I can now give this advice to others and relate to every. single. word. Thanks to those who helped me get to this place. Thanks so much.
