I wrapped up Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix amidst the goings on of last week and I'm already a good bit of the way into Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and holy shit Dumbledore's badassery is next level.
"If there is an attack," said Dumbledore, "I give you permission to use any counterjinx or curse that might occur to you. However, I do not think you need worry about being attacked tonight."
"Why not, sir?"
"You are with me," said Dumbledore simply.
