Battle-of-hogwarts

more hinny stuff that i can’t get out of my head
  • okay but imagine this
  • after the war harry moves into the burrow temporarily bc he can’t face grimmauld place and wants to be with the people that are actually his family
  • plus he wants to be with ginny
  • plus he wants to help out while they all grieve for freddie boy
  • so then i figure harry decides to fix up sirius’ motorbike in his spare time bc duh a lot of emotional reasons 
  • and arthur tells him he can use his workshop to fix it up in
  • so harry gets the bike in there and is sitting on a wooden crate just staring at it for ages
  • then darling ginny walks in with two cups of tea and sinks down beside him
  • neither of them say anything for a while
  • they just stare and sip their tea
  • and then ginny says “so mr. saviour of the wizarding world retires to become a mechanic?” 
  • harry chuckles and shrugs “maybe not… but i think i’m going to try and fix it up”
  • ginny nudges him, “can i help?”
  • and that’s how they develop their relationship and remind themselves that their love is based in friendship and similar interests
  • so yeah they spill oil and grease on one another and have to strip their stained clothes off every once in a while for some sexy worktop action
  • but they also just plain chat while they work and tinker away with this thing
  • sometimes it’s about the war
  • but mostly it’s just dumb stuff like quidditch and how long they reckon it’ll take ron to pop the question to hermione
  • eventually the bike is finished and they move out of the burrow
  • but they set up their own little workshop at their house and find other things to fix up together
  • some of its muggle and some of its wizarding
  • but it’s all broken and needs fixing
  • just like they were when they returned from the war
At the Battle of Hogwarts

  • <b> Narcissa:</b> wow

Molly Weasley watched her third oldest son turning his back to their family but never gave up on him.

Molly Weasley saw her husband at his weakest moment as he laid wounded in St. Mungo’s hospital. She never understood what muggles thought when they started praying to their god(s):                                                                         But that night as she sat at her husband’s hospital bed she couldn’t help but fold her hands, close her eyes and just hope that there was indeed a greater deity that could bring her husband back to her family.

Molly Weasley put a bandage around her fifth son’s head when he was bleeding onto her sofa, his ear ripped away. She did not let her heart and actions be ruled by panic and fear. She would not  risk her son’s life like that.

Molly Weasley saw her son that wasn’t her son dead in Hagrid’s arms and did not show how she broke inside. Instead, she gripped her wand a little tighter, bit her lip a little stronger and started to fight a lot grimmer.

Molly Weasley cried over her fourth son’s cold body, his last laugh still etched into his face. She witnessed her fifth son crumbling right then and there. She saw her family grieving and crying. She went through hell but reminded herself to keep going.

Molly Weasly got up and stared straight into the eyes of Narcissa Malfoy. 

Proud woman, blonde hair, pale skin.

Split lips, bloody cloak, sad eyes.

They did not exchange one word.

But one glance was enough.

Narcissa’s eyes darted to Fred, to Harry, then back to Molly. Her lean finger’s tightened indiscernibly around her son’s bony shoulder.

A nod.

The war had taken enough lifes. Enough children.

And as one mother to another, Molly Weasley nodded back.

Imagine fighting at the battle of hogwarts and you turn to your left and see a muggleborn duelling a death eater, then the death eater disarms the muggleborn but then they pull out a gun and the death eaters starts laughing because “hahaha muggle technology could never kill me how cute” but then the muggleborn shoots them then BYE BYE DEATH EATER and the muggleborn starts running around hogwarts shooting all the death eaters

you know what makes me mad? the death of my precious son, remus john lupin, was entirely unnecessary. like jkr claims it was to emphasize the “orphans of war” with teddy, but that point doesn’t need to be emphasized because the entire series was about an orphan of a war. and yes, there are orphans of every war, but that point is just as easily made by simply saying something like “harry saw one of his classmates knelt down next to the body of their mom/dad”. and yes, his death is also meant to break off the last tie harry had with his parents bUT YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO DO THAT. but what makes me the most angry isn’t the fact that he died. it’s the fact that he wasn’t even given a good death scene: a death scene that is heart wrenching and makes the reader cry for an extended amount of time. like trust me, i wanted to cry over his death, i really did, because if one person deserves my tears, it is remus john lupin, but i couldn’t bring myself to cry over one measly line that simply says something along the lines of “lupin and tonks were laying there among the others who had died”. and then we don’t even get harry’s emotions, like we do with sirius’s death, to make it really hit home. it’s unjust.

all im saying is that if remus john lupin had to die, he deserved a good death scene that makes us sob and makes our heart breaks not only for the loss of one of our favorite characters but also for harry for losing yet another person who is so important to him, and we get neither of those.

If you ever feel like you had a long day…

Just remember what Hermione, Harry, and Ron went through on May 1st.

The three of them wake up at 6am on the morning of May 1st in order to change into their disguises and head to Gringotts.

Over the next 24 hours:

  • They change and take Polyjuice potion
  • They manipulate their way into Gringotts
  • They’re badly burned by fake treasure
  • They escape on a dragon
  • They ride the dragon across the countryside for several hours
  • They’re nearly caught by Death Eaters
  • They hear the real story of Dumbledore’s sister from Aberforth while enjoying their first and only meal of the day (a large loaf of bread, some cheese, and mead)
  • They go with Neville to the Room of Requirement
  • Harry breaks into the Ravenclaw common room to look for the diadem
  • Harry reveals himself to McGonagall, Flitwick, and Sprout
  • Ron and Hermione go down into the Chamber of Secrets to destroy the cup
  • They goes into the Room of Requirement to find the diadem
  • They narrowly escape the Fiendfyre
  • They duel with Death Eaters
  • Ron’s brother dies
  • They sneak out to the Shrieking Shack
  • Ron and Hermione help move the dead when Voldemort announces that he’s going to give Harry an hour before resuming fighting
  • Harry runs up to Dumbledore’s office to see Snape’s memories
  • Harry watches memories that totally alter his perception of his life and of Snape
  • Harry realizes he needs to die
  • Harry rushes out to the Forbidden Forest to sacrifice himself
  • Harry speaks to his parents, Sirius, and Remus using the resurrection stone
  • Harry allows Voldemort to kill him
  • Harry is taken back to the castle by the Death Eaters and a triumphant Voldemort
  • Ron and Hermione and the others briefly mourn Harry while Voldemort monologues
  • Harry rises again and monologues for a bit before dueling Voldemort
  • Harry kills Voldemort as the dawn begins to break
  • They visit Dumbledore’s portrait and discuss the elder wand
  • Harry goes off to his dormitory, wondering if Kreacher can bring him a sandwich

For all those who fought bravely this day 19 years ago, to those that lived, may they live well and happy, and for those that died, may they rest in peace.
This day is not just to remember those who died, but to remember what they died for.
Love, loyalty, friendships and family stands above all, and to attain happiness there’s a need for sacrifice.
Sometimes, the good die young so the others can live longer. The ones who die for us, live through us.
They will always be in our hearts forever.
I raise my wand to Severus Snape, Fred Weasley, Remus Lupin, Nymphadora Tonks, Colin Creevey, Lavender Brown and the Fallen Fifty.
