alastor ‘mad-eye’ moody

Harry’s first lesson with Moody as seen by Lily and James

James: I wish Mad-Eye taught us Defence Against the Dark Arts when we were in Hogwarts. We probably wouldn’t have needed all those pain-in-the-ass Auror trainings.

Lily: They are 14 years old, I’m pretty sure he won’t teach them what he taught you.

James: You never know with Moody but yeah, you’re probably right. I mean considering that just two days ago he transfigured that Malfoy kid into a ferret, I can’t tell for sure.

Lily: He’s madder than ever though.

James: That’s because he’s a genius, genius people tend to be more on the crazier side. *grinning* Look at me for instance.

Lily: *rolls her eyes* That’s not because you’re a genius, that’s because you’re straight up crazy.

James: Whatever.

*The lesson starts Moody talks about showing that what Dark curses can do to a wizard. They start with the Imperius curse. Moody shows the effects on a spider*

Lily: I hope he’s not going to show each one like that.

James: It’s illegal Lils, he’ll probably leave it with Imperius. That bloody curse helped so many get away from Azkaban, I hate it.

Lily: *smiling* I see the Auror in you is still strong baby. 

*Neville suggests Cruciatus Curse, Lily goes numb as Moody shows it to the class*

Lily: No, not in front of Neville. Doesn’t he know? James doeSN’T HE KNOW? 

James: What the fuck is he trying to do showing a bunch of kids something like that? He doesn’t do that in Auror training.

Lily: *tears falling down her cheeks* He’s disturbed. Look at Neville’s face. Poor Alice and Frank. When will he STOP?

James: *shocked* This is not– This is not normal.

Lily: What was Dumbledore thinking? *Moody asks the last one Hermione raises her hand reluctantly* No Hermione don’t say it, you are smart girl, *pleading* please don’t.

*Moody kills the snake Lily looks away crying*

James: Lils, it’s over you can look now.

Lily: No, I– I can’t look at Harry right now.

James: I know it’s hard but he looks alright

Lily: But he’s not, he can’t be.

James: Of course he is not. I can’t believe the Alastor Moody I know would do such a thing.

Lily: But he did. HE DID. He showed a bunch of damaged under-age children what Unforgivable Curses do. He’s out of his mind.

James: I can see that but it’s over now. 

Lily: He’ll never forget that

James: He won’t but he’s a strong kid, don’t you remember last year? He’ll pull through, don’t you worry love.

The Yule Ball

Goblet of Fire AU where Harry isn’t chosen for the triwizard tournament, but instead has found himself becoming strangely entranced by none other than Draco Malfoy, a boy who will not stop speaking the most beautiful French around the Beauxbaton students, driving Harry mad. So mad in fact, that he might just be crazy enough to ask him out.

The Dark Mark

“Tripped over a tree root,” [Ron] said angrily, getting to his feet again.

“Well, with feet that size, hard not to,” said a drawling voice from behind them.

Harry, Ron, and Hermione turned sharply. Draco Malfoy was standing alone nearby, leaning against a tree, looking utterly relaxed. His arms folded, he seemed to have been watching the scene at the campsite through a gap in the trees.

Ron told Malfoy to do something that Harry knew he would never have dared say in front of Mrs. Weasley.

“Language, Weasley,” said Malfoy, his pale eyes glittering.

i bet harry potter kept that tiny hungarian horntail from the first triwizard tournament on his bedside table forever

years later lily luna is like “daddy, what is that dragon toy?”

“well, child, it’s a brutal reminder of the time i was forced into the wizard hunger games because dumbledore can’t tell when there’s a death eater working at hogwarts”

Hogwarts has been chosen to host a legendary event: The Triwizard Tournament. For those of you who do not know the Triwizard Tournament brings together three schools for a series of magical contests. From each school, a single student is selected to compete. Now let me be clear. lf chosen, you stand alone. And trust me when l say these contests are not for the faint-hearted…
E t e r n a l  g l o r y. That is what awaits the student who wins the Triwizard Tournament. But to do this, that student must survive three tasks. Three extremely dangerous tasks.
