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.
