RIP Snape



This memory is one of my favorites, so I wanted to give it its very own post. 

When Andrew came into town, we had the obligatory millennial's tourist stop of King's Cross with a sidestop to platform 9 and 3/4. Outside the Harry Potter shop that is located nearby, a memorial to the recently departed Alan Rickman had been erected by fans of his work. 

It was sweet in its own right, but then Jon pointed to the flowers and said, "Look Jess, almost all the flowers are lilies!" 

And then we had this nerdy little swoon moment that only real lovers of Harry Potter could appreciate. There are fewer moments where the Harry Potter universe felt more real and I loved it. 

A belated RIP Alan Rickman. I can't imagine a better Snape (or Colonel Brandon).
