It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.
Friendly reminder that Jorah fled Westeros because he got caught selling prisoners to slave traders, and Ned Stark was going to execute him.

The Magic Begins | #14. Favourite villain/anti-hero/antagonist → Dolores Umbridge
I absolutely adore Umbridge as a character. I think she’s one of the best written characters in the entire series. As well as her being brilliantly written, deliciously evil, an incredibly strong female character, and the fact that any scene she has with McGonagall is hilarious, I love Umbridge because of her relatability to real life villains.
One of the reasons I love the Harry Potter series so much is because it helps me understand the world with it’s real-life analogies. We see people like Umbridge in the real world all the time - people who step on others to gain power and who see oppressed groups as genuinely less than them, such as when Umbridge attempts to get Hagrid fired simply becuase he’s part-giant. People who try to pass laws that discriminate again PoC, queer people, and disabled people, such as Umbridge does to Lupin with the anti-werewolf legislation. There are people in the real world who abuse those they have power over, such as when Umbridge makes Harry write lines with his own blood. There are people in the real world who do evil but are still seen by the government as good people because of the money and privileges they have, such as how Umbridge gets away with so much because she’s pureblood and works in a high class job.
