It's no secret that us Harry Potter fans are deeply emotionally invested in the universe we spent much of our childhoods immersing ourselves in, and most of us still have a real soft spot for Hogwarts lore well into adulthood.
Maybe there is something of a masochistic streak in the Potterhead community because Tumblr is full of posts that are designed to tweak our tear ducts into action, but will they get you welling up with emotion or is there just something in your eye?
