When Heather Pearson of Portland, Oregon decided she wanted to marry her girlfriend, Kelsey Stacy, she knew the proposal would have to involve their favorite books: the Harry Potter series.

Pearson planned the proposal "for about a year," before finally sending Stacy on a Potter-themed scavenger hunt on Halloween day.


What Stacy didn't know at the beginning was that the scavenger hunt would inevitably lead to the rest of her life.

The story of the proposal was shared on Youtube.

Pearson explained to Pink News why this was the perfect proposal for them:

"Kelsey and I went to Harry Potter World on our first anniversary, we love Harry Potter, all the movies and all the books. Growing up I never pictured what my life would look like, but when I met Kelsey, [I knew] that this is it."

The pair, devout Slytherins, already owned matching robes and wands.

As the fateful day got closer, Pearson convinced Stacy to help her throw a Potter-themed Halloween party. What Stacy didn't know is that she was actually helping to plan her own engagement bash.


On Halloween, Stacy was led on a scavenger hunt that took her all over the city, seeing old friends and finding copies of the Harry Potter books with love letters from Draco Malfoy inside.

The search finally led her back to her own apartment, where Pearson was waiting on the balcony dressed as Malfoy, holding a copy of Goblet of Fire (their favorite installment in the series) whose pages had been artfully folded to spell out "Marry Me?"

Stacy said yes as the couple's friends cheered and the pair shared a tearful kiss.

Fortunately, the whole day was captured on video to be shared with the world!

Author J.K. Rowling herself saw the video and tweeted out a message for the Potter-heads:



The newly-engaged couple could barely process it all!


Twitter was enamored with the couple and their shared love of the Potter-verse.




What better way could there be for two die-hard Slytherins to start their lives together?




Some other Twitter users couldn't help but make some Potter-themed jokes.



Congratulations, Heather and Kelsey! May you have a magical life together!

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...
