If Harry had not seen Dudley’s lips move, he might not have believed it. As it was, he stared at Dudley for several seconds before accepting that it must have been his cousin who had spoken; for one thing, Dudley had turned red. Harry was embarrassed and astonished himself.
“Well… er… thanks, Dudley.”
Dudley held out his large, pink hand.
“Blimey, Dudley,” said Harry over Aunt Petunia’s renewed sobs, “did the dementors blow a different personality into you?”
“Dunno,” muttered Dudley, “See you, Harry.”
“Yea …” said Harry, raking Dudley’s hand and shaking it. “Maybe. Take care, Big D.”
Dudley nearly smiled.
#WHY THE BLOODY HELL WASN’T THIS IN THE MOVIE#HELLO#CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT#OR DO WE NOT DO THAT NOW SO WE CAN INCLUDE SHITTY 3D DEATH SCENES THAT NEVER HAPPENED
See, this is the kind of character development they should’ve kept in! Not Aunt Petunia’s massively too little too late “I lost a sister” crap, because sorry lady, I don’t give a damn that you lost your sister when you spent the last sixteen years horrifically abusing her son and disrespecting her memory.
But Dudley was a child through all of this. It doesn’t excuse him for being a bully, of course, not at all but it leaves him more room for redemption. (and getting attacked by dementors is definitely more than a good enough punishment) He was raised in a toxic household and taught his entire life that Harry is worthless and was rewarded for enforcing that belief. But here in the last moment we see of them together, he basically says “fuck that, Harry’s a better person than us” and actually becomes better than his parents. And that’s something.
The gif is called, “Benham’s disk" "is named after the English toymaker Charles Benham, who in 1895 sold a top painted with the pattern shown. When the disk is spun, arcs of pale color, called Fechner colors or pattern-induced flicker colors (PIFCs), are visible at different places on the disk. Not everyone sees the same colors."
"The phenomenon originates from neural activity in the retina and spatial interactions in the primary visual cortex, which plays a role in encoding low-level image features, such as edges and spatiotemporal frequency components."

Helloooooo, I'm Mary (but Kikoia is fine too). Depending on the day and which fandom I'm sailing my ships in, my tumblr is pretty much a crapshoot. Occasionally I post art, but don't hold your breath ^^'
