#CHECK OUT your differences in wand technique here #and how fluidly and casually Ron throws a curse in comparison to Harry and Hermione #Hermione has done the reading and is technically perfect of course #Elbow straight; wrist bent #Wand tip aligned with left sightline #left arm held loosely behind her for balance #Henry hasn’t ever done the reading #Grip too tight; elbow locked #Shoulders raised#Left elbow cranked in awkwardly against his body #Kids’ll imitate his awful technique#and Junior Aurors #it’ll make their parents nuts; don’t twist your neck like that I don’t care what Auror Potter does #When you save wizardkind you can hold your wand however you want #until then drop your shoulders #Ron’s been around wand users since birth #practiced with twigs and then his brothers’ wands #Look at how the movement flows from his center #the way he uses his whole body #throws out his opposite hand behind him to counterbalance the movement #Harry and Hermione get their wands into position and then throw the curse #Ron’s spell starts mid-motion because he knows his wand will be in position in time (via helenish)

I want a friendship like this one.
