Harry Potter is one of the most underrated characters in his own series.
I have never heard anyone say that Harry is their favourite, and a quick Google search of ‘Harry Potter is a bad character’ (or something similar) shows no shortage of people who think he’s the worst.

When they ask if she really wants it, she says yes. Her lungs feel sore afterwards, as if they have frosted over. She lays a hand on her chest and feels the silence resonate.
When she gets home, she takes her mother’s crystal glass and throws it against the wall. She stares at the pieces, not blinking until tears roll down her cheeks. But they taste of nothing.
She smashes more until the floor looks built of crystal.
When her mother follows later, slipping between her fingers, she can’t even feel glad that she has no heart to get broken.
