Lin-Manuel Miranda is still not over a few words from Harry Potter.
The prolific Hamilton creator started a thread on Twitter Wednesday, which he titled “POP CULTURE EVENTS FROM WHICH I HAVE STILL NOT RECOVERED, MANY YEARS LATER,” and among the items was this touching quote from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: “‘I am not worried, Harry,’ said Dumbledore, his voice a little stronger despite the freezing water. “I am with you.'”
Queen of Twitter, J.K. Rowling, responded to Miranda and said, “Cannot tell you what this means (from you), because this moment is one of my very favourites.” She added about the last two books in the series, “Always feel H[alf] B[lood] P[rince] gets overshadowed by D[eathly] H[allows].”
Miranda tweeted back that Half-Blood Prince was his favorite because of one moment: Earlier in the book, Harry said something similar about his mentor: “I don’t need luck, I’ll be with Dumbledore.” Dumbledore’s line makes the moment come full circle in a beautiful way. As Miranda puts it to Rowling, “You’re deadly w a reprise, maestro.”
