quibblrs:

do you ever think about all of james and lily’s old school friends?? watching harry grow up through daily prophet articles and the media and knowing who he is, not because of the fame but because they knew his parents

and when the day finally came that he defeated voldemort for good, they were so proud. he didn’t know it, but they were. proud enough for lily and james, sirius and remus, and his grandparents put together

no matter how lonely and unloved harry felt growing up, he never was. there were always people out there that cared for him and were proud of him for much more than just being “the boy who lived” or “the chosen one”. they were proud and they cared because he was “harry potter, james and lily’s boy”
