When Ron, frustrated with studying for NEWTs and with Hermione’s anxious sixth-year nagging, explains to her what reading is like for him, Hermione’s breath catches. “Ron, you’re dyslexic,” she says, softly, and instantly regrets every snide comment she’s ever made towards his study habits. 

Soon, by asking around, Hermione amasses a list of spells for Ron to try - some stilling the page, some changing the font of books for easy reading, some going after Ron’s temporal lobe directly. 

These help, a little, but not as much as knowing there’s a word for why reading is so hard for him. That’s it’s normal, that he’s not stupid, and that Hermione suddenly helps instead of criticizes, looks for solutions rather than complains, praises instead of gloats. 

Being Newt's Sister Would Include:

-Wanting the best for him, especially after Leta
-Defending him against the school when he’s getting expelled
-Buying his favourite honeydukes candy for him and sending it to him
-Being afraid when meeting his creatures for the first time
•They love you though
•Your personal favourite are the occamies!
•They always wrap around you and never bite
•Except that one time when you were angry at Newt
-Him never being able to stay mad at you
-Sticking your tongue out at him
•It’s where Pickett leaned it from!
-Staying up late listening to his stories
-Hating Leta after what happened
-Loving Tina and knowing she’s the one
-Crying every time you have to leave your amazing brother
-The best hugs from him
-Braiding his hair as he works
-Tickling him
-Wrestling with him!
•One time you licked his arm to let go
•And bit him (but you deny it)
-Having the best brother in the world

drarry for the christmas ship meme?

  • who starts putting up decorations in October? Harry. Draco can’t stand how early they go up because the Malfoys made much more of a thing about celebrating Halloween, so when Draco comes home from work to find the entire house covered in tinsel and fairy lights before Halloween’s even started Harry! he’s absolutely mental. But then he starts to actually look at the decorations, and they’re all just so pretty. There are red dragons and little golden snitches and colour changing baubles and little chocolate frogs hung all over the tree for Draco Teddy. So Draco can’t stay mad and agrees to hold the ladder whilst Harry puts the star on top of the massive tree in the entrance hall, even though you could just do it with magic for Salazar's sake Harry. *eyes roll* 
  • who buys the advent calendars? Draco. Pansy told him all about them, chocolate for breakfast Draco! For BREAKFAST! And Draco obviously figures out that Harry’s never had one, because of the Dursleys obvs. So he goes into this fancy looking muggle chocolate shop and buys two of the biggest fanciest looking advent calendars ever and wraps them up and puts them under the Christmas tree for Harry to open on Christmas because Pansy didn’t actually explain all that well, and how was I supposed to know Harry?
  • who places mistletoes all around the house? Neither of them. I don’t need a daft excuse like mistletoe to kiss my boyfriend. Oh really? What if I refuse to kiss you without mistletoe? Don’t be an arse Harry, come here. *muffled scuffling noises as Harry runs away pretending to not want to kiss Draco* *Harry swearing when Draco catches him round the waist, pins him against the wall and teases him* Oh alright just fucking kiss me then Draco.
  • who wraps the presents for other people? Draco, with magic, because Harry tries and ends up with a stuffed dragon sellotaped to his leg and 2 presents wrapped so badly it’s basically just a sheet of wrapping paper on top of some books.
  • who puts the final star/angel on the top of the Christmas tree? Harry. Draco always used to do it at Malfoy Manor and so pretended to fuss about it but really loved watching Harry’s face light up when he got to put the star on the tree for the first time ever. 
  • who’s the one that hates eggnog? Harry doesn’t like it but he does like to watch Draco drink far too much because he doesn’t realise it’s the alcoholic kind but does eventually have to intervein when he tries giving it to Teddy.
  • who’s the one that bakes Christmas cookies for guests? Draco. He’s surprisingly good at it too and so supplies Pansy and Hermione with them, as they’re incapable of following a simple recipe without destroying their kitchen.
  • who sends out the Christmas cards? They meant to send Christmas cards, really they did. But Draco started doodling inappropriate pictures instead of Christmassy illustrations so the cards were forgotten.
  • who knows all the words to twelve days of Christmas? Draco but only when he’s very very drunk. So yeah all the way through Christmas
  • who’s the better snowman builder? They’re both crap at it because they never practised as kids but they have fun attempting it. 
  • who starts snowball fights? Harry in a desperate attempt to make Draco’s hair look bad. (it doesn’t work)
  • who’s the one that wakes the other on Christmas morning by playing Christmas songs really loudly? They invite Teddy and Andromeda round to stay at Grimmauld Place from Christmas eve until the new year so the adults are woken by Teddy and Draco jumping on the beds at 5 in the morning begging to go open presents.   

Thanks for asking this one. I love Drarry at Christmas.

Winter Wonderland OTP {2/*} - Vikmione

Viktor had thought he loved her when he saw her by The Black Lake the first time, standing under a tree and trying, desperately, to make it look as if she wasn’t looking for him. But now? Now as she glanced up at him dwarfed by one of his old coats, snow flakes catching on her eyelashes… Now, he knew. (via calebski)
