I want to say some things. Because the truth is, I spent so much of this war quiet hoping that bullying and hatred and evil shit would just blow over so the rest of us could get on with our lives. And I kept my mouth out of what I observed because I didn't want to make it worse for the people I loved. I also didn't want to make it worse on myself. That is a kind of cowardice.
Because I was scared then, I don't want to be scared anymore. I just want to say that I'm proud of my sister, Alicia Spinnet. She had to give up her career and face public maligning by purported adults because she stuck to her beliefs. She fought for people who were disenfranchised by the Death Eaters' government. She fought for our parents. She supported Harry Potter. And she survived. I love my sister very much.
Take this opportunity (right here, a little good vibes only moment) to tell the world about someone whose behaviour should get major props. Who's been pretty badass in your life?
[LEON + ALICIA]
I want to have you both over to dinner with Mum and Dad.
