3 times The Philosopher's Stone made me feel warm & cosy & happy

Hagrid cares for Harry

Contains spoilers, please avoid until you've completed the books.

Hagrid, Harry and the Dursleys are shivering in a small sea battered hut on a tiny island perched atop a rock in the middle of the sea. It’s freezing but then, with a shake of his umbrella, Hagrid lights up a roaring fire.

It filled the whole damp hut with flickering light and Harry felt the warmth wash over him as though he’d sunk into a hot bath.
The keeper of the Keys, The Philosopher's Stone

Don’t you just love sitting beside a gas fire after being cold? The warmth washes over you like God’s own love. Or you know, a fire.

Harry's first day after...

An owl is clawing at the hut’s window...

Harry scrambled to his feet, so happy he felt as though a large balloon was swelling inside him.

When Harry, so long miserable, is made happy you feel it as a relief seeping through every organ and out every pore.

Feel safe, it's just a GIAAANT SSSQUID

It’s summer and exams are over. Hermione wants to go through her exam papers, for fun, this makes Ron feel ill, so they wander out to the lake and flop under a tree:

The Weasley twins and Lee Jordan were tickling the tentacles of a giant squid, which was basking in the warm shallows.Read more at location 3336
Through the trapdoor, the Philosopher's Stone

There’s half a dozen quotes I could pick about the wonderful squid in the summer. It works so well because I’ve watched 20,000 leagues under the sea and been programmed that great squids wrestle with tin can subs and try and squeeze the life out of humans, pop off our heads and use us as toothpaste. So a friendly one is lovely. I just went home after my exams, I’d much preferred to have paddled in a warm lake tickling a squid.

Why do some fans read HP over and over again? Perhaps the squid is why, in our world they’re dangerous, they might eat you, they’d probably drown you; at Hogwarts they just want some love and play.
