This is me getting excited for next year. I didn’t make any mistakes this time, although my headings look very messy but I don’t mind. This (next) year will be all about simplicity where my bujo is concerned. I find that it’s easier and doesn’t put pressure on me to come up with something others will like. It’s my bujo anyway so yeah, simplicity guys. It’ll probably end up being my theme for the year, idk, we’ll see.
The Marauders graduated in 1978 and J+L died in 1981. That means that while the Marauders were in 7th year, students in years 1, 2, 3 & 4 would be in years 4, 5, 6 & 7 in 1981, if that makes any sense???
So, I’d imagine Hogwarts would hear the news the next morning from the Daily Prophet, or maybe Dumbledore announced it at the Halloween Feast or something… but either way, the younger students would be cheering and celebrating at finding out that You-Know-Who had been defeated.
On the other hand, the older students, who had been in school at the same time as the Marauders, would be truly devastated.
James and Lily Potter dead? The former Head Boy & Girl of Gryffindor House? Gryffindor quidditch team captain, James? Tutor for students of all houses, Lily? Legendary troublemaker/prankster, James? Muggleborn rights activist, Lily?
Although Peter faked his death, nobody knew it was fake… And say all you want about Peter, but he had to have been a cool guy if he was a part of the Marauders. So of course, people were heartbroken about him too.
Peter Pettigrew dead? The boy who kindly shared food stolen from the kitchens with students who skipped meals to study, Peter? Legendary Marauder, Peter?
It hurts me to even imagine what went through people’s minds when they found out Sirius allegedly led James and Lily to their deaths.
Sirius Black, the cause of his best friend’s murder? Prankster extraordinaire, Sirius? Loyal to all of his close friends, Sirius? Protective over students who were bullied and/or had broken homes, Sirius?
The students were probably just as shocked as the professors were. Even though it was a day for celebration, students and professors, who truly knew the Marauders, felt deceived and lied to because after everything each Marauder had been through, none of them had deserved this fate.
Look. I know Zayn and Louis applied for the same job. And Niall and Liam went to the same Busted concert (presumably when they were like 8 years old when Busted was touring before 1D was formed). Both of those things are neat coincidences.
But they aren’t very significant to any of them, because they’ve mentioned both of those things like one time in interviews over the course 6 years (and it was arguably to try and make the Script concert seem like less of a thing).
You know what’s significant? What Harry himself made significant?
The Script concert. He had to make a public declaration about it…twice!
“This place is incredible to me…I remember coming to quite a few gigs here. I remember I stood right there watching the Script and it turns out, Louis was at the same gig!“ - Manchester, 22 December 2011
“This venue is quite special to me. I’ve been to quite a few gigs here before. And I remember, about 3 years ago, I was stood just about there to watch the Script in here, and it turns out, that Louis was at the same gig!” - Manchester, 23 December 2011
Louis and Zayn have never described their mutual employment pursuits as “incredible” or “quite special.” And neither have Liam and Niall described the Busted concert that way, despite it being literally the same scenario as Louis and Harry attending a Script concert at the same venue on the same day.
So you have to wonder why Harry cares so much, why it’s such a curious thing that they were there, together, on the same night, at the same time, doing the same thing, and they didn’t even know each other.
But then fate twisted, and they did meet, and became so important to each other, that it made the night they missed each other that much more significant.
Kwon Jiyong was no more than 5 when his mom made him take part in talent shows and auditions and when little Jiyong started crying in protest his mom dragged him into the toilets and pinched him so he’d go up there and do what he’s best at. After already being a success in SM he went to be a trainee in YG and trained there for 6 years, wrote 2 songs every day before bed after a long day practicing at the studio. Now, only at the age of 26, he’s the loved leader of one of the best kpop groups in the world, talented, worshipped and praised. The G-Dragon.
Dong Youngbae started being a trainee in YG at the age of 13 after being to the CEO’s office countless times, being persistent that he wants to train and make it big. After training 6 burdensome years hearing stuff like “if u’re not practicing hard enough u’re gonna end up like Youngbae” and finally debuting as a boy group BIGBANG he is the great Taeyang.
Kang Daesung got called “the ugly one” in his trainee years. Even tho he already had fans for being a sweetheart he still had a very difficult life. Even though he sang like an angel, his father was against him being a singer and Daesung had to go to school, train after school and be home at 11pm every day. Now that he made it to the group after hard work and being loved by the world and being a worshipped solo act in Japan, he finally lives up to his name, Kang Daesung, a big success.
Lee Seunghyun was training hard in YG before eliminated from the soon debuting group. He didn’t give up though. Even though being away from home and only being 15, he never stopped believing in his dream and after showing others that he has the passion and ability to debut with the group and being absolutely essential part of it, he was given an another chance. Now, at the age of 24 he’s the maknae of a 9 year old group, has his own academy and is a beloved MC in Korea and Japan, he deserves the name Seungri, the victor.
Choi Seunghyun, an overweight underground rapper invited to audition for a real agency, turned down because of his weight but accepted after seeing his hard work. Being the eldest of the trainees he was given hell for not being as talented as the other boys. His thing was rap and he was struggling to get better at everything else required, singing, dancing, etc. Now 9 years after debuting he is declared as one of the sexiest men on earth, worshipped as a rapper and loved as an actor, he’s truly T.O.P in everything.
BIGBANG is a true inspiration. Thank you for your hard work and your dedication.
okay but imagine the marauders and lily casually chatting in year 6 and at some point sirius makes a sex joke, and lily complains that he’s “too much of a perv to date poor innocent remus” and sirius just burst of laughing and rolls under the table and holds his ribs and moony is blushing a bit but really he’s laughing too.
and that’s how everyone discovered remus’ true nature.
Besides respect I have for artists and their projects, the important thing about this leaking mess is that I’d rather die than upset Damon days before his birthday. Music is everything for this dude, come on. Who would want to do this?
Today is the one-year anniversary of Incorrect BH6 Quotes! So I thought I’d do something a little different today: a massive photoset post in the middle of the week. Thank you so much to everyone who keeps this blog going! You guys rock!
