MY FAVORITE (HP) QUOTES FROM FICS I'VE READ
“We won't give you the answers wasn't so very far from don't ask questions, and keep your nose clean was starting to sound a lot like be quiet and pretend you don't exist.” By Fives, Opalish
“…he couldn't recall Potter ever having had a philosophy (regarding the war). All he had was anger and love and confusion.” –Ghost in the Cell, sheryl bites
“I realised that being a helpless victim was nothing to be ashamed of; that the shame ought to be on the ones who inflicted the violence, not on its recipient. I decided that the embarrassment and humiliation victims felt was more of a problem than the torture itself; that people hated themselves and blamed themselves for what had happened. I wondered where the shame came from in the first place; who had taught me to feel ashamed when somebody mistreated me? I decided vaguely that it had something to do with the Dursleys… and society in general. Then I wondered if other people were ashamed of being weak, and decided they probably were. It seemed stupid.” –Voldie’s Book Club, sheryl bites
“Yep,” he said.
“Who was it who said you never really know a man, sic, until you’ve watched him die?”
“Because I suppose he would think that watching him during imminent nuclear war – now, that’s reallygetting to know him.”
“Do you believe it?” I said, faintly disgusted.
“No,” he said. “You never really know anyone else at all.” –How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Lord Voldemort, sheryl bites
“…when Tom talks with Harry about Voldemort, there are some things Tom isn't sure of. For all his knowledge, Tom has a complicated relationship with himself.” --Pain au Chocolat
“It was sick and wrong, but I was almost happy that Voldemort was out in the open again. Gave me [Remus Lupin] a purpose, people to be around.” –Gracefully Gone, LesserKnown
[After malfoy, crabbe, and goyle attack the Dursley household, and Snape has kicked them out] “Snape closed the door behind them and leaned his face against the cool wood. Wretchedlittleinbredmorons. One of these days they're going to do something I can't ignore or explain away. "Twenty points," he told the door. "Each. And detention."”—Yet Another Snape Meets the Dursleys Story, rabbit and –v-Jinx-v
“Green eyes glowed defiance at Snape, and Snape stared back, startled to see the ghost of Lily's stance and bearing in the child. Did you clench your fists at the merfolk too?” —Yet Another Snape Meets the Dursleys Story, rabbit and –v-Jinx-v
“Dying had been easy after all, once he'd known that he had finished his task. Once Harry had the memories that would explain what he needed to do. It was coming back that would be hard. Somehow he'd never considered how badly he would fill the role of plaster saint.” –Asphodel and Wormwood, rabbit and –v-Jinx-v
"He is not a fool," says Dumbledore. "He learned very early in life that he could not expect help or protection from anyone—even, or perhaps especially, from his teachers and guardians. It is very difficult to unlearn lessons of that kind." –The Guiltless, kilara25
“Snape was incapable of it. He had contempt for anyone but students who got what he was trying to teach right on the first try.” –Stronger Than Hope, Alaunatar
“Voldemort feared death. Harry did not. That's the power the Dark Lord knows not” –Stronger Than Hope, Alaunatar
“Harry despaired at the fact that clearly all wizards had magic where their common sense should be...” --Schooled, hollyivy7
'Poor Tom.' Harry considered that for a moment or two then agreed, 'He didn't deserve what happened to him. Before he grew up and became a monster. Then no one deserved what he did to them.' –His Own Man, Crunchysunrises
[Harry thinking about Snape]”…Dumbledore used you, is using you now, and he'll use you up…” –His Own Man, Crunchy sunrises
[Snape] “But when he saw Potter he was suddenly 15 years old again, helpless fury tearing him up inside… thinking that he was going to die at any moment because a human being couldn't be so full of rage and live.”–Truth, thisveryinstant
“Idols are not meant to be touched; their gilt comes off in our hands.”—Full Circle, chase glasslace
"He entertains the vague idea of writing in the diary... but every time he touches it is like a wound splitting open, raw and hot and bloody." - The Fire Omens, chase glasslace
"From death and darkness [Harry] had stemmed"-Dark Father, darwick
“No? Have you ever read any history books, Hencliffe? Even as a boy that man got everywhere: into the Ministry, the Department of Mysteries – heck, he broke into Gringotts and practically destroyed the place -”
“I think all that is really exaggerated. He’s only a trunk maker –”
Franklin stalked up to him and grabbed the front of his robes. “You idiot! That man’s wife has been savagely murdered. Whatever you think, he did kill Voldemort. And he killed a teacher at Hogwarts in his first year.Just because he chooses to lead a quiet life, doesn’t mean he isn’t capable of violence. If we don’t want two murders on our hands, you won’t underestimate him. Got it?”-Fate is a Four Letter Word, Philo
“My children went to school,” Harry said.
“A normal event,” Snape prompted.
“I realised how young they were, how ridiculous it was of him to expect what he did of me. It got worse as they got older. When James was in his sixth year, full of getting into trouble and trying not to get girls into trouble and all the rest of it, and I looked at him and thought, this is the age when Albus made me promise to force-feed him a potion that would kill him. And in his last year, I thought, this is the age I was when Albus expected me to kill myself.”-Fate is a Four Letter Word, Philo
"People realized quickly how outstanding [Tom Riddle] was, and there were many who wished to befriend him. Make him their ally. But regardless of how they treated him, he knew what they were like inside– undeserving. Eventually, the Dark Lord realized that there is no one who is equal to him in any way. He realized how superior he was to everyone else, and the stronger he got, the harder it became to forgive other people's weaknesses and ignorance."-The Train to Nowhere, Pain au Chocolat
"He freed the captured feather to embrace his gentle, fragile lark, and it spun away, joyful and terrified in its unexpected release."-Je Te Plumerais, Nimori
"...the more you drink, the more you like it. Ergo the words of caution."
"I believe it. Tom...did you kill your father and grandparents?"
Tom drained his glass. "They deserved it."
"Your own father."
"I found the irony very appealing."
Harry muttered, just loud enough for Tom to hear, "Murder's not the only irony thing you have a taste for."
Tom laughed aloud. "Your sense of humor is growing on me. I think I'll let you keep it."-Riddle's Legacy, GenvieveWoolf
"The war was how the students had measured their lives; all they talked about was before the war, after the war, during the war. They were a generation bred for war, born with their allegiance assigned to them the moment they took their first steps. They were a generation sacrificed for the war, sacrificed for Voldemort's quest for power and Dumbledore's quest to stop him."-Before and After, whydowefall
"He got to celebrate living among the few survivors briefly, and then went about the task of clearing graves for those more fortunate than themselves."-Before and After, whydowefall
"Are we allowed to send first years into the Forbidden Forest?" he mused aloud, neatly sidestepping the question. "In fact, have we ever sent seventh years into the Forest for detention?"
"…not that I can recall off the top of my head," she said, calling a House Elf to provide more bottles of Rosmerta's finest mead. "Although I am sure that one day the Weasley twins will push me too far. But with something hunting unicorns in there?"-A Mistaken Sorting, Silver Pard
"Reason 1: They are Gryffindors.
"Nobody knows better than Tom that you have only a finite amount of time before everyone gives up on you, no matter the strength of their good intentions."-insurgere, Silver Pard
"...she was probably descended from [..] the verb [...: grangerize; adding to a book with information or illustrations not originally included[...]"-Paradise Lost, Neko-chan -Silver Tongue-
"The ability to prioritize various contradictory orders or rules was a skill he used often, actually. He'd had to, in the Dursley home."-Better be Slytherin!, jharad17
"It's noble of you to speak of shielding the children from the horror outside of school, but please remember – the last time you came through a war, you were the child. Tell me, Mr. Black, did you stay innocent?"-Gabriel, Shikatanai
"Nagini came to Tom when he was dying.
Hatchling is far from his nest, she said, winding around him in abstract patterns, feeling his frantic heartbeat in the air.
I have no nest, Tom said dully, thinking of his father, of his mother, filled with the ashes hate leaves when it has burned out."–Reparabilis, Rhyte
"The only tactic he knew that would succeed was the one he'd often used against the Dursleys when another Christmas passed without presents, or when Dudley lied to his parents and blamed Harry for some mess he'd actually caused. Harry withdrew from them and locked up every emotion except indifference behind stern walls. They got bored when he didn't cry and scream like a baby and left him alone.
And it had worked here, too. They didn't hurt him, did they?
Because you have nothing left to hurt."-Inter Vivos, Lomonaaeren
Albus Dumbledore: "But this is touching, Severus. Have you grown to care for the boy, after all?" - J. K. Rowling
