Remember when Snape said “Always.” and then Lily said “Until the end.” and we was like ooooooo gurl, I am getting so sad up in this theater! We gotta stop this emotion! (#ghettogirllove)
Well, that word “Always” defined a generation, and will for generations to come. It seems as though the last 10 years have been such a roller coaster ride, and when we stepped into that theater we had this feeling of hope, sadness, and yet happiness.
We were extremely overwhelmed with sadness that it was ending, we felt hope because we wanted it to leave with a big bang, and then we felt happiness. We felt happiness because we knew that, after all, it wasn’t truly ending. No, we’re not talking about Pottermore or the Wizarding World.
We’re talking about that even though a generation was ending, a new one was just getting started. We knew that this generation of Potterhead would be spoiled with things we didn’t have when we read the books. They have Pottermore for goodness sakes! And the Wizarding World! Their experience will be so much better. They could taste Butterbeer when reading about it and get sorted with Harry.
Because so many of the great things came after the books and films, today’s first-readers will have a more richer experience, in full depth. Their knowledge of characters and origins will not be the same. They will have the backstory that we had to wait for, at their fingertips. But yet, the story will never change. The recurring theme that “Love conquers death” will stay.
What people fail to notice is that Harry Potter is not a generational or 2000s thing. For one reason: The story lives on. When all of us Potterheads have children, we will pass down the story. And if the children like it, they will pass it down to their children, and so on and so on. Soon, ‘Potter’ will be shelved with classics, and Rowling will take her rightly place with Dickens and Austen. A hundred years from now, children and adults alike will fall in love again. They will fall in love like we did. The relationship will only end when the end arrives. Which means, Always.
