Best 'Dumbledore Moment'
This is a tough one. Dumbledore has so many amazing moments. He's such a wonderful and complex character. He risks his life for the greater good (Harry's too, but you know... shit happens!) and I would love to learn more about him. It's hard to decide whether to go for a heartfelt moment, a funny moment, a brave moment, a risky moment. There are just so many! It could go from Dumbledore's revelation of the Room of Requirement (chamber pots), his problems with dodgy flavoured Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans, his taking the wrap for Dumbledore's Army, drinking that deadly potion to no avail, covering Snape's back at all times, standing up against the MoM. This list could go on. I think I'm going to go with, however:
I'm currently covered in goosebumps. This chat between Harry and Dumbledore is one of the most moving and open passages in the entire series. It's the moment where everything starts coming together. You can feel things coming to a close and you start to realise that all of those sacrifices had meaning. They weren't empty. I think I tear up pretty much every single time I read/ see this. I just want to hug them both. I loved it as well because we got a final scene with Dumbledore. That and it provided us with one of the most memorable quotes of the series.
“Tell me one last thing," said Harry. "Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
