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!

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
