So in the beginning of gr9 I was a classic potential geek. Passionate, smart, but not obsessed with anything.
Then, I met my mentor, who loved SHERLOCK.
She made me start watching Sherlock, and taught me the Art of Obsession to the point I loved Sherlock.
Looking for TV shows similar to Sherlock, I found the Doctor. Or more correctly, he found me.
I remember the first episode… Ugh, I dumped Sherlock aside and spent all of my time with him.
We are still together.
At least in my imagination.
The first thing Snape asks Harry is “Potter! What would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?” According to Victorian Flower Language, asphodel is a type of lily meaning ‘My regrets follow you to the grave’ and wormwood means ‘absence’ and also typically symbolized bitter sorrow. If you combined that, it meant ‘I bitterly regret Lily’s death’.
WHO THE FUCK THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO FIGURE THIS OUT
