Harry Potter Challenge » Day 8 - A scene you really wanted to be in the movies, but wasn’t.
“I don’t think you’re a waste of space.”
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.
