Trelawney vs. Firenze
I always shared Hermione's slight dislike for Trewlaney because she was just a little bit too out there for me. Divination wouldn't be my chosen subject if I could pick some, Ancient Runes would be preferable! But then they had to cast the genius Emma Thompson for the role and now I just can't dislike her, because Emma is what I want to be! Also, no matter how much I disliked her, I almost threw the book when Umbirdge was mean to her. She didn't deserve that.
But yes, Firenze all the way. I was so upset that him coming to Hogwarts in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix wasn't in the films! I remember the chapters of him teaching were some of my favourite ones in the book. He was described as this beautiful centaur who turned this classroom into looking like a forest and I really loved it. Also, the idea that he was rejected by his own kind for helping humans and fought in the Battle of Hogwarts despite knowing it might be judged negatively, it just really made me appreciate him.
So, how do you feel about Trelawney and Firenze and which one is your favourite?
