Favorite Bookish Father
Arthur Weasley is probably my favorite father in the whole literature! I love how he worries about his children, but also doesn’t scold them when they break the rules, my favorite example is when he finds out that Ron used the flying car to save Harry from their relatives and reach the Burrow. Arthur is such a loyal and funny guy, and a wonderful father as well as a husband, I really enjoyed how Mark Williams portrayed him in the movies.
“Molly! I’ve got to ask you your question first!” “Arthur, really, this is just silly. . . .” “What do you like me to call you when we’re alone together?” Even by the dim light of the lantern Harry could tell that Mrs. Weasley had turned bright red; he himself felt suddenly warm around the ears and neck, and hastily gulped soup, clattering his spoon as loudly as he could against the bowl. “Mollywobbles,” whispered a mortified Mrs. Weasley into the crack at the edge of the door. “Correct,” said Mr. Weasley. “Now you can let me in.”
