J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
This particular scene—and the whole book, really—stands out as a reminder of how friendship is a pivotal backbone to the Harry Potter series. The last two pages of “The Quidditch Final” bursts with pure happiness and togetherness as the students— minus the Slytherin students, of course—embrace one another after Gryffindor wins the Quidditch Cup. A positive energy wafts off the pages. In this moment, the story transcends the world of wizardry bordering muggles. This scene is of friends enjoying the moment, of a team reveling in their winning the big game. Whether good or evil, wizard or muggle, hippogriff or werewolf—the celebration of happiness amongst friends seems relatable here.
