With so much anger and frustration in the world, sometimes a simple act of love and devotion is enough to make a person emotional. To know that you had a part in making that love happen only amplifies these feelings, which is what author J.K. Rowling must have experienced when two fans tweeted a picture of their matching Harry Potter tattoos.


The couple, who are engaged to be married, posted a photo of their matching tattoo "rings" to Twitter, which both feature the word "always" (referring to Severus Snape's love for Lily Potter) alongside their Hogwarts House colors and the sign of the Deathly Hallows. For two Potter fans, it's an incredibly touching display of eternal devotion.


None of the tattoos' nuance was lost on Rowling, who tweeted back at the couple, claiming the picture took her by surprise in the best way:


Harry Potter fans also jumped into the discussion, celebrating the pair's relationship and debating the context of the quote they chose.





Many fans also went out of their way to make sure Rowling knew what a hero she was to them:






Many other couples also chimed in, showing off their Potter-themed wedding decorations and rings.


Some other people had even gotten their versions of "Always" tattoos.



Don't all happy days need some Harry Potter?


Emotions were running very high on the thread.

Fans continue to discover Harry Potter, and the story continues to inspire the best in people: friendship, adventure and, most importantly, love.

As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go. And yes, it says a lot about people who do that.

Turns out I'm not the only one with strongly held opinions. People shared their thoughts after Redditor Acrobatic_Western_67 asked the online community,

The world has changed significantly in the last twenty years. Back in the day, you could just step out of the house and be gone all day and no one could contact you unless they were back home or used a payphone.

Nowadays, people expect us to be connected all the time, which is super frustrating in its own way. But it's hard to imagine the world as it was before, right? And it's pretty wild that we just accepted it for so long, that is until technology advanced enough!

Society has changed... for better or worse. People shared their observations after Redditor Silkhide asked the online community,

"What was the most f**ked up thing that was generally accepted twenty years ago?"

Is it ever okay to keep a secret from your parents?

It's been said that what people don't know won't hurt them, and that can certainly depend on the circumstances. But some secrets aren't all sad, dark, and depressing. Some are quite wholesome, believe it or not!

And sometimes your parent might be in on the secret. That's right. One parent.

People were keen to share their experiences after Redditor TheCripdalorian asked the online community,

"What’s one secret you and a parent have kept from the other parental figure?"
