Book Quotes: - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire As he heard Voldemort draw nearer still, he knew one thing only, and it was beyond fear or reason: He was not going to die crouching here like a child playing hide-and-seek; he was not going to die kneeling at Voldemort’s feet…he was going to die upright like his father, and he was going to die trying to defend himself, even if no defense was possible…
s’cuse you. Hear is something to help you with your “study”
who remembers when Lily asked James why he picked on Snape in the first place? and he answered; “It is more of the fact that he exists really.” Or how about how he firstly tells Snape where to go to see Lupin turn? THUS exploiting Lupin’s secret?! Or just simply ignoring Dumbledore’s advice and choosing Peter over Sirius then throwing a fit because he couldn’t leave the house. HE EVEN PLOTTED USING THE INVISIBILITY CLOAK IF DUMBLEDORE DIDN’T HAVE IT. He was so fucking cocky that he threw his wand down and was forced to fight Voldemort wandless, that was NOT bravery that was :”Shit i forgot it on the couch I’m fucked shit”.
I am sorry but your memory is a lie. James NEVER told Snape to go see Remus transform, that was Sirius. When James found out he ran to find Snape and save him straight away.
And you’re going to blame him for trusting his friend? Like that makes him some sort of terrible person? Oh what an idiot, tried to keep his family safe by putting his trust in someone who’d never given him reason not to.
And I guess I missed the part where he threw a fit because he couldn’t leave the house…wait no that never happened. He was frustrated sure, but who wouldn’t be being trapped inside all day long? HOW IS THAT EVEN A NEGATIVE THING?
And lastly, he was inside his house, he thought they were safe, he was playing with his son and then put his wand on the lounge, and you are blaming him for that like he is some sort of idiot for not standing guard, wand in hand, in his home at all times. If you honestly don’t think facing certain death to try give your wife and son a few moments to escape isn’t brave then I don’t even know what to say,
So thanks for helping me with my study, you further proved my point that people will judge him for the most ridiculous shit ever and twist all the good things he did around to be some kind of crazy bad thing.
Also the fact that he ‘threw a fit because he couldn’t leave the house’ was LITERALLY the opposite of what happened. Lily wrote in her letter to Sirius that James tries not to show it, but she can tell, which implies that she can see it only because she knows him so well. He actively tried to not show that he was frustrated, which means that he didn’t throw a fit, he tried to make the best of it.
