i put my hands in my pockets casually, giving a nervous laugh. ‘w-what’s an otp’ i stutter. i take my hand out of my pocket to brush my hair back smoothly. a list falls out of the pocket. it begins to roll. it is going on seven blocks now. i begin to cry.
People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers” your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am.

What was symbolic about voldemorts death in the book?
Because when I read his book death, it’s like it all comes full circle for Voldemort. In “The Flaw in the Plan”, when Harry and he are having their exchange in the Great Hall, Jo refers to him as “Voldemort”, but once he’s dead, once it’s all over, it’s Tom Riddle’s body that hits the floor with a mundane finality. It’s like she was saying that, in the end, despite all of his efforts to prove how special and above everyone he was, he died as nothing more than a man. He didn’t go out in a cloud of smoke and dust, like you’d imagine a great being would. Because he was powerful, but he wasn’t great. Voldemort would hate the way he died.
