For those of you who don’t know (Muggles!), Dementors are mythical creatures in JK Rowling‘s fictional series Harry Potter.
The only thing I look forward to these days is sleeping. For it is only then, that I see her once more, in my dreams; dreams so vivid and surreal that if feels like being transported to a parallel universe
In those dreams, once more, I feel the warmth of her presence, when she embraces me and feeds me with her hands -the touch that I so desperately long for.
It is then, that I don’t feel like waking up. Waking up to a world, where she doesn’t exist
The early morning ignorant bliss is smashed in the face by reality, when I don’t see her missed call on my phone.
The Dementors refuse to leave.
But Queen Rowling, through dearest Professor Lupin, also tells how to battle these Dementors.
Dementors can be repelled by the Patronus Charm – a powerful charm, which is cast by an extremely powerful, happy memory. You need to be strong, face the Dementor, and cast the charm in its face, remembering your happiest memories. A powerful Expecto Patronum is enough to cast away 100s and 1000s of Dementors at once.
Believe it or not, chocolate is a legit reliever and medical aid post a dementor’s attack. I can say this from personal experience, chocolate helps. If you ever find yourself surrounded by Dementors, cast the Patronus Charm and eat a chocolate. If it helps, you can print these amazing wrappers, and keep a few chocolates asides for times like these.
Dementors are horrible. But they are not invincible.
Harry had just one memory to fall back on to.
I have a million. So do you.
