Five reasons why you should never overlook Molly Weasley

你不应该忽视莫莉·韦斯莱的五个理由

 

As the matriarch of one of the most popular and rambunctious wizarding families in Britain, Molly Weasley is well-loved. However, there was so much more to her than her role as a loving (if exasperated!) mum. This is why you shouldn’t overlook her.

作为英国最受欢迎、最喧闹的巫师家庭之一的女家长,莫莉·韦斯莱深受大家喜爱。然而,除了作为一个充满爱心的母亲(虽然有些恼怒),她还有更多的角色。这就是为什么你不应该忽视她。

 

Molly’s magical ability

莫莉的神奇能力

 

So, we all know that Mrs Weasley was a total legend – her takedown of Bellatrix in the Battle of Hogwarts was superb. However, outside of that moment, a lot of her other magical abilities were overlooked. Molly was a whizz when it came to household and healing spells, but they weren’t often acknowledged because of their domestic nature. Her most used spells may not have been as flashy as the ones used by other prominent characters, but they were still complex and skilful. Nobody was able to pull off a mouth-watering meal quite like Mrs Weasley and Harry certainly appreciated her efforts.

我们都知道韦斯莱夫人是个传奇人物——她在霍格沃茨战役中击败贝拉特里克斯的表现非常出色。然而,在那一刻之外,她的许多其他魔法能力都被忽视了。莫莉在家庭和治疗咒语方面是一个天才,但由于它们的家庭性质,它们通常不被承认。她最常用的咒语可能不像其他杰出角色使用的咒语那么华丽,但它们仍然是复杂和巧妙的。没有人能像韦斯莱夫人那样做出一顿令人垂涎欲滴的饭菜,哈利当然很欣赏她的努力。

 

By seven o’clock, the two tables were groaning under dishes and dishes of Mrs Weasley’s excellent cooking, and the nine Weasleys, Harry and Hermione were settling themselves down to eat beneath a clear, deep-blue sky. To somebody who had been living on meals of increasingly stale cake all summer, this was paradise, and at first, Harry listened rather than talked, as he helped himself to chicken-and-ham pie, boiled potatoes and salad.

七点钟的时候,两张桌子被韦斯莱夫人一盘盘美味的饭菜压得吱嘎作响,韦斯莱家的九口人、哈利和赫敏正在晴朗的深蓝天空下吃东西。对于一个整个夏天都以越来越不新鲜的蛋糕为生的人来说,这里简直就是天堂。起初,哈利不是在说话,而是在听,一边吃着鸡肉火腿馅饼、煮土豆和沙拉。

She stood up for what was right

她为正确的事情挺身而出

 

Molly wasn’t in the first iteration of the Order of the Phoenix but that doesn’t mean she hadn’t consistently opposed Voldemort. Her resolve never wavered, despite losing her brothers Fabian and Gideon when Voldemort was first in power. She instilled that resolve in her family (though Percy took longer to come around). When Voldemort returned, she joined the Order and stayed at the headquarters in Grimmauld Place – despite knowing the possible risks. Even the death of her son Fred, during the Battle of Hogwarts, was not enough to stop her from fighting to help bring an end to Voldemort’s reign of terror.

莫丽没有出现在第一代凤凰社,但这并不意味着她没有一直反对伏地魔。她的决心从未动摇,尽管在伏地魔第一次掌权时失去了她的兄弟费边和吉迪恩。她向家人灌输了这种决心(尽管珀西花了更长的时间才转变过来)。伏地魔回来后,她加入了凤凰社,住在格里莫广场的总部,尽管她知道可能会有风险。即使她的儿子弗雷德在霍格沃茨战役中死去,也不能阻止她为结束伏地魔的恐怖统治而战斗。

 

Mrs Weasley loved fiercely

韦斯莱夫人爱得很认真

 

Mrs Weasley had a lot of love to give. Though sometimes she may have seemed to be as ferocious as a Hungarian Horntail, there was no doubt that she was dedicated to her family and loved them with that same ferocity. She was also willing to extend that love to others. After all, she was the consistent mother figure in Harry’s life. From his first year at Hogwarts, she made him feel wanted. She knitted him sweaters, invited him to stay, supported him and loved him like her own. There was one moment in particular that stood out to us. When Cedric was killed in front of Harry, she was the one to bring him the most comfort. Knowing he would have been traumatised, she hugged him like a mother would, which reminded him that he was loved.

韦斯莱夫人给了我很多爱。虽然有时她可能看起来像匈牙利树蜂一样凶猛,但毫无疑问,她对她的家人是忠诚的,她也以同样的凶猛爱着他们。她也愿意将这种爱扩展到其他人身上。毕竟,在哈里王子的生活中,她是一贯的母亲形象。从他在霍格沃茨的第一年开始,她就让他觉得自己被需要。她给他织毛衣,邀请他留下来,支持他,像爱自己的孩子一样爱他。有一个时刻特别引起了我们的注意。塞德里克在哈利面前被杀时,是她给哈利带来了最大的安慰。她知道他会受到精神创伤,就像一个母亲那样拥抱他,这提醒他,他是被爱的。

 

Molly was often (unintentionally) hilarious

莫莉经常(无意中)令人捧腹大笑

 

When you think of the funniest characters in the Harry Potter books, Mrs Weasley probably doesn’t spring to mind. However, Molly could be funny. It wasn’t always intentional, but the relationship she had with her family (especially Fred and George) often provided relief when the story became intense. For instance, when Ron was very unhappy about the… interesting dress robes she had given him, her response was a classic Molly comeback…

当你想到《哈利·波特》丛书中最有趣的人物时,你可能不会想到韦斯莱夫人。然而,莫莉可能很有趣。这并不总是有意为之,但当故事变得紧张时,她与家人(尤其是弗雷德和乔治)之间的关系常常会让她松口气。比如,当罗恩对她送给他的那件有趣的礼服长袍感到非常不高兴时,她的反应是典型的莫利式的反击……

 

‘I’m never wearing them,’ Ron was saying stubbornly. ‘Never.’

‘Fine,’ snapped Mrs Weasley. ‘Go naked. And Harry, make sure you get a picture of him. Goodness knows I could do with a laugh.’
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“我从不穿它们。”罗恩固执地说。“从来没有。”
“很好。”韦斯莱夫人厉声说。“哈利,记得给我拍张他的照片。天知道我还能笑得出来。”
《哈利·波特与火焰杯》

 

She learnt from her mistakes

她从错误中吸取了教训

 

Nobody is perfect and neither was Mrs Weasley. She could sometimes be judgemental and got situations wrong, but she was also willing to being corrected and showed that it’s ok to change your mind. In Goblet of Fire, she believed the rubbish that Rita Skeeter was writing about Harry’s love life and turned against Hermione. Yet, as soon as Harry told her the rumours weren’t true, she believed him and changed her opinion.

没有人是完美的,韦斯莱夫人也是。她有时会评判别人,把情况搞错,但她也愿意被纠正,并表明改变你的想法是可以的。在《火焰杯》中,她相信丽塔·斯基特写的关于哈利爱情生活的垃圾,转而反对赫敏。然而,当哈利告诉她谣言不是真的时,她相信了他并改变了看法。

 

She also jumped to conclusions about her daughter-in-law Fleur and her relationship with Bill. In Half-Blood Prince, when he was attacked by Fenrir Greyback and left scarred, she seemed to assume that Fleur wouldn’t want to be with him anymore. Fleur quickly put a stop to that nonsense and stood up for their relationship. Yet again, Molly was corrected and even offered her the use of Great Auntie Muriel’s tiara for their wedding as an olive branch. Yes, Mrs Weasley was wrong in both scenarios, but ultimately she didn’t allow her stubbornness to get the better of her.

她还对儿媳芙蓉以及她和比尔的关系妄下定论。 在《混血王子》中,当他被芬里尔·格雷伯克袭击并留下伤疤时,她似乎认为芙蓉不想再和他在一起了。 芙蓉很快制止了这种胡言乱语,为他们的关系辩护。 莫丽又一次纠正了她的错误,甚至提出在婚礼上使用穆丽尔姨婆的头冠作为橄榄枝。 是的,韦斯莱夫人在两种情况下都是错的,但最终她没有让自己的固执占了上风。  

 

你同意我们关于为什么不能低估莫丽·韦斯莱的想法吗?对于她不该被忽视的原因,你有不同的理由吗?还是你有完全不同的看法?
