Arthur, Family, and Fucking: "Arthur told me to wish you a happy
 seventeenth, Harry," said
 Mrs. Weasley, beaming at him. "He had to leave early for work, but
 he'll be back for dinner. That's our present on top."
 Harry sat down, took the square parcel she had indicated, and
 unwrapped it. Inside was a watch very like the one Mr. and Mrs.
 Weasley had given Ron for his seventeenth; it was gold, with stars
 circling around the face instead of hands.
 "It's traditional to give a wizard a watch when he comes of age."
 said Mrs. Weasley, watching him anxiously from beside the cooker
 "I'm afraid that one isn't new like Ron's, it was actually my brother
 Fabian's and he wasn't terribly careful with his possessions, it's a bit
 dented on the back, but"
 The rest of her speech was lost; Harry had got up and hugged her.
 He tried to put a lot of unsaid things into the hug and perhaps she
 understood them, because she patted his cheek clumsily when he
 released her, then waved her wand in a slightly random way, causing
 half a pack of bacon to flop out of the frying pan onto the floor.

<p>Okay but like actually this is the most thoughtful gift IN THE WHOLE WORLD.</p>
<p>It might seem to make more sense to give Ron the precious family heirloom (remember that Molly’s brother Fabian died in the First Wizarding War; Molly has held onto his watch out of sentimentality since then). But Ron is the sixth son in his (canonically financially-struggling) family. He’s been forced into hand-me-downs his whole life. If he’d gotten the watch with a dent in the back, he wouldn’t have appreciated it; he’d only have seen the flaw. And if his mum bought Harry a new watch <i>instead </i>of getting Ron one, Ron would have resented that. A new watch was a worthwhile expense to get Ron a rare taste of the luxury and individual attention he has always craved.</p>
<p>Harry, though. Harry has money; Harry has new things. What Harry does not have is family. Harry is an orphan. Other than one photo album and the invisibility cloak, he doesn’t have anything that came with family history attached. What Molly does here is give him that; she makes him part of the family, symbolically, by giving him an emotionally significant if physically imperfect item. She gives him love in a tangible form.</p>

Okay but like actually this is the most thoughtful gift IN THE WHOLE WORLD.

It might seem to make more sense to give Ron the precious family heirloom (remember that Molly’s brother Fabian died in the First Wizarding War; Molly has held onto his watch out of sentimentality since then). But Ron is the sixth son in his (canonically financially-struggling) family. He’s been forced into hand-me-downs his whole life. If he’d gotten the watch with a dent in the back, he wouldn’t have appreciated it; he’d only have seen the flaw. And if his mum bought Harry a new watch instead of getting Ron one, Ron would have resented that. A new watch was a worthwhile expense to get Ron a rare taste of the luxury and individual attention he has always craved.

Harry, though. Harry has money; Harry has new things. What Harry does not have is family. Harry is an orphan. Other than one photo album and the invisibility cloak, he doesn’t have anything that came with family history attached. What Molly does here is give him that; she makes him part of the family, symbolically, by giving him an emotionally significant if physically imperfect item. She gives him love in a tangible form.

This is why I will fight anyone who insults the Weasleys.

Fucking fight me.

So I scribbled it. 🤷
