002. Albus Severus Potter often visited the portrait of Severus Snape, and they would have long talks about Hogwarts and Potions in particular. Once when Albus was just about to get on the Hogwarts express, he was talking to his father about Snape and how he thought he was a charming man. Harry asked him what Snapes portait was like, he told him that it was dark and bland, with potion vials scattered around and books in heaps on the floor. Harry wasn't suprised, he pictured the potions dungeons in his head from when he was at Hogwarts. However, when Albus proceeded to tell Harry that on the desk in Snapes portrait stood a vase of Lillies, which seemed to be the brightest and prettiest thing in the picture, Harry let out a little smile, hugged Albus and continued to help him get his trunk onto the carriage.
032. George's first prank after Fred died went horribly, horribly wrong.
It was supposed to be a joke; a couple red hairs from Ron’s pillow, a little sip of some Polyjuice potion, and bam, George would be Ron for an hour or so. The look on Ron’s face when he saw himself dancing around Diagon Alley in a pair of ladies knickers would be priceless. Little did George know that Ron and Hermione were trying to have a baby, and Hermione had been a little more than hormonal than usual.
George tried to push her away, but Hermione was strong. The minute she had walked into the shop and saw George (or, Ron, rather), she pounced, shoving him back into a wall and snogging him mercilessly. Paralyzed, George slumped against the wall, his eyes wide open in shock as Hermione made little sounds against his lips. He didn’t even realize when he became taller and returned to his normal self until Ron walked into the shop with his wand raised, looking murderous.
Suffice to say, pranking was much easier when Fred had been around to plan it.
i love snape and lily so much, but it makes me sad when people say that james and lily were wrong for each other and she should've married snape.
snape had some pretty serious emotional problems, and in all honesty, he was pretty controlling over lily. he called her a mudblood, he wanted to decide who she could and couldn’t be friends with… i completely understand why, of course! he had such a dark life, and she was the glowing light in it. it must have been so difficult to feel as if he was losing her.
but james was willing to change for lily. and for someone who cared so much about people and so much about helping them, that must’ve been incredibly rewarding for her. in the same way that snape got to introduce lily to the magical world, lily got to introduce james to so much.
james was willing to compromise. lily tried so hard to help snape, but in the end, he couldn’t change. imagine standing up for him for years, being his only friend for years, only to come to the apparent realization that none of it had made any impact. lily probably felt like a complete failure, and james was there, and he listened, and he cared about the effort she put in.
in so many ways, james cherished her more than snape ever could. they built an incredible life together, the one that lily had always dreamed about. she had an incredible husband who loved her and truly valued her opinions, and gave her the family that she lost when petunia found out she was a witch. she got to share the joy of magic with her son. james made lily feel like she had worth, and after so many people close to her had told her the opposite, that had to mean something.
i clearly take this all too seriously.
03. George's proposal to Angelina wasn't planned. George and Angelina had been together for awhile and had never discussed marriage. One night at a big Weasley family party, a conversation arose between George, Percy, and Ron. Percy and Audrey had recently gotten married and Ron and Hermione were engaged. Ron started joking with George about marrying Angelina, when Percy asked if he had even thought about the idea. George replied with a smile "Of course I have, you just brought it up!". Percy, who still didn't have the best sense of humor, continued "George you're an adult and you should really start acting like it." "Fine." George replied, and taking inspiration from his twin brother he stood up and said this "Oi! Angelina!" She looked up from her conversation with Ginny and Fleur, "Want to marry me?" Though she was very surprised she smiled coyly and said, "All right, then." and continued on with her conversation. George sat back down and looked at his brother Percy who looked absolutely stunned. Remembering a very similiar conversation in his fourth year of school Ron patted George on the back and said "Piece of cake".
034. On the eve of her wedding to Scorpius, Rose had a conversation with his mother Astoria. Her almost mother-in-law told her the same thing that Malfoy mother's had said for generations, "Malfoy's have one child. A son." To which Rose replied, "Weasley's have more than one and we don't care if they are male or female." Any worry she had eased with Astoria's response, "I've always wanted a little girl." Rose promised her at least one. A promise that she fulfilled 4 times over and her and Scorpius's fifth child was a little boy.
022. During her pregnancy, Lily took to talking to Harry as though he were already there, telling him stories about Hogwarts, talking about the members of the Order, or even just commenting on the weather. James picked up this habit as well, and both parents continued to talk to Harry about nearly everything after he was born.
It’s a pity, then, that out of the thousands upon thousands of words that his parents said to him, the only ones Harry will ever remember are their last. They weren’t even addressing their child, but the man who killed them and would eventually kill their son as well, however briefly. In a way, though, they were the most important words the Potters would ever say in front of Harry. After all, what else could they possibly have said that would express their love for him more?
HP97. McGonagall considered many great artists to commission for Snape's portrait in the Headmaster's Office. Harry suggested that she should ask Luna. He kept thinking about the portraits in her bedroom and thought she would do the man justice. When the painting was unveiled, everyone agreed she did. The only eccentricity was that the flag behind him was a dazzlingly vivid emerald-- shades deeper than the customary color of Slytherin. Still, considering it was Luna, everyone decided it could have turned out weirder and sung their praises to the artist. Harry, however, fixated past the scowling Potions Master's shoulder in awed silence. When he turned to Luna and saw that her penetrating gaze was already fixed on his-- his mother's-- eyes, he knew they had done right by picking her for the job.
Letter to Teddy (from Harry)
Now I have been hearing stuff lately. Stuff about you at Hogwarts. Not saying that it is true of course. But if I hear of you sneaking 20 dung bombs into the Slytherin Common Room again, or trying to get James and Fred stuck in the Chamber of Secrets, or trying to ride the centaurs, or using levicorpus to sneak into the girls dormitory, or morphing yourself to look like Professor McGonagall, or having a “sleepover” in the kitchens with the house elves, or transfiguring toilet seats into sharks mouths I will personally come to Hogwarts to sort it out. Or I could send a Howler, your choice.
Love your godfather,
P.S. dont play “tag” with the Whomping Willow, it could hurt
32) Whenever people asked Lily what her favourite part of being with James was, she would always reply cheekily that being with him meant that his friends were forced to like her too, and she appreciated the inclusion in their little cult.
When Sirius overheard her saying this he looked at the ground while mumbling, “But you know, Lily, we’re not just nice to you because James would kick our asses if we weren’t, we- we really love you.”
Lily smiled sweetly, but the moment was ruined when Remus cooed, “Awww, Sirius really does have feelings.”
