Ok so you know how some patronus’ match, like Lily and James having a Doe and stag… Well what if these kids are just casually practicing their patronus’ and one kids like “Sick mines a velociraptor” and another kid at the other end of the rooms just shocked as all hell because “umm I think mines Chris Pratt?”
Rereading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: Chapter Nineteen - Elf Tails
when we left off, ron was poisoned and almost died. lol happy birthday bro!!!!!!!!!
Hermione gave an almost inaudible sniff. She had been exceptionally quiet all day. Having hurtled, white-faced, up to Harry outside the hospital wing and demanded to know what had happened, she had taken almost no part in Harry and Ginny’s obsessive discussion about how Ron had been poisoned, but merely stood beside them, clench-jawed and frightened-looking, until at last they had been allowed in to see him.
if that aint love yall. seriously tho any romione haters can FIGHT ME
“Er-my-nee,” croaked Ron unexpectedly from between them.
i vividly remember reading this for the first time and SCREAMING FOR JOY. still kinda of squealing now tbh

“Half our family does seem to owe you their lives, now I stop and think about it,” Mr. Weasley said in a constricted voice.
OMG STAHP im feeling way too many emotions im literally like 2 pages into the chapter jfc
“’S’no wonder Dumbledore’s angry with Sn-” Hagrid stopped in his tracks, a familiar, guilty expression was visible of his face above his tangled black beard.
familiar. GOD I LOVE HAGRID
- FUCKING MCLAGGEN hes like ‘since ron almost DIED let me play in the next quidditch game’ and its like BRO HE ALMOST DIED can you at least wait until, idk THE NEXT DAY to ask??????? smh disrespectful
Harry, however, had never been less interested in Quidditch; he was rapidly becoming obsessed with Draco Malfoy.
is this gay or what
“Is Hermione Granger still visiting him?” Lavender demanded suddenly. “Yeah, i think so. Well, they’re friends, aren’t they?” said Harry uncomfortably. “Friends, don’t make me laugh,” said Lavender scornfully. “She didn’t talk to him for weeks after he started going out with me! But I suppose she wants to make up with him now that he’s all interesting…”
BITCH BETTER STEP AWF dont be hating on romione, i said IM READY TO FIGHT
“Where’re you going?” Harry demanded. “Yeah, I’m really going to tell you, because it’s your business, Potter,” sneered Malfoy. “You’d better hurry up, they’ll be waiting for ‘the Chosen Captain’ - ‘the Boy Who Scored’ - whatever they call you these days.”

Snape x Reader Warnings: Really badly written lol Word
Count: 777 A/N:I
had a dream that I met Severus (because apparently I’m an absolute
loser with nothing else on my mind) and I thought I’d write it out
as best as I can remember and make a little story out of it. Forgive
me for the excessive and badly written dialogue and weirdly changing
pov, I haven’t written in a while.
you’re Severus Snape, right?” I inquired, squatting in front of the
already bothered Slytherin.
pallid boy looked up slowly, wondering who the hell came to disturb
him from delving into his worn out potions book.
brilliant! I was wondering if you could help me with a potion I’m
stuck on? I heard you were some sort of a genius when it comes to
this sort of thing,” I gave an awkward laugh as he stared blankly
he stated after a few moments of contemplative silence.
You mean it?”
whatever,” he rolled his eyes, looking back to his book.
thank you so much!” I plopped down next to him, rummaging through
my bag, dumping handfuls of sheets on his lap, “You have no idea
how much this means to me! I’m usually quite decent at potions but
this one just has me completely baffled.”
threw me a murderous look as he removed his book from underneath the
masses of paper I had flung on top of it, before sighing in
resignation and resentment, surely realising what he just agreed to.
that is why the Alihotsy Draught is so volatile.”
gosh, that makes so much sense! I don’t know why I never realised
that before. Perhaps you should become a teacher, Professor Snape,” I
joked, poking his side.
highly doubt that would ever happen,” he scoffed.
stared at him in thought, smiling gently as he blushed at my intense

you sitting out here on your own?” I
tilted by head, gazing up at him.
not sure if you can tell, but I’m not exactly popular.”
neither am I, but I’m out here sitting with you aren’t I?” I
shrugged with a smile.
I guess I’m not exactly friendly.”
obviously not everyone, because I think you’re wonderful!” I nudged
his side, “Not many people would help out a chatterbox Hufflepuff
in their spare time, now would they?”
guess not,” he mumbled.
are all your friends?” I tried again, hoping the shy boy would open
don’t have any.”
you do. What about those Slytherins you hang around? Or that pretty
Gryffindor, Lily? She’s lovely.”
looked down, a shadow of resentment sweeping across his downcast
Slytherins aren’t my friends. They only talk to me because they think
I might be useful in the future. And as for Lily… Well we aren’t
friends any more.”
didn’t know why he was telling the odd girl such private matters.
Perhaps it was the shy but comforting smile she directed at him or
the kind look that never faltered from her face. Or maybe it was just
the fact that someone was actually giving him attention. He wasn’t
sure, but he knew if he wasn’t careful, he could easily spill his
darkest secrets to the gentle girl right there and then.
said something horrible to her, something she’ll never forgive me
for… I called her a mudblood. It was in the heat of the moment!”
he added quickly as I gasped at his words, “those stupid marauders
were taunting me and I… I guess I just lashed out.”
no, that’s awful! Did you explain to her what happened?”
tried but she wouldn’t listen to me.”
Severus… I’m so sorry,” I sighed, place a comforting hand on his
shoulder, “I don’t mean to sound horrible, but is she really worth
all this sorrow if she couldn’t even give you the chance to

personally think forgiveness is one of the most important things in
life. We all make mistakes and if nobody could forgive, we would all

was a lapse in conversation as the sullen boy considered the girl’s
jumped to my knees in front of him, smile plastered across my face.
how about I be your friend?”
be friends… With me?”
of course I would,” I laughed, placing my hands on his shoulders,
“I know it wouldn’t be great for your reputation, being friends
with a weird little Hufflepuff who doesn’t know when to shut up…
but I would really like it if you were.”
gazed at the girl like he was just seeing her for the first time.
DRACO MALFOY AND THE QUESTION OF ENTITLEMENT by kattegatsun - T, WIP - Basically, Draco/Hermione is my all time OTP and I got pissed about people reinventing or ‘redeeming’ Draco, so there. He’s at least 99% canon and so is everyone else, even Ron, whom I hate.The WIzarding War has ended with the first Order of the Phoenix. Voldemort was defeated, Lily and James lived, and kids got to be kids. Which doesn’t mean they didn’t get their fair share of trouble and adventure. Draco was the one left on the outskirts though, and being Draco Malfoy, taking 'no’ for an answer just wasn’t an option.
Reasons why the Harry Potter movies really messed up the Marauders
- Let’s start with the most obvious point : their age.
All actors who play characters from the Marauders’ era are way too old. Lily and James died at the age of 21 but in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Geraldine Somerville and Adrian Rawlins were respectively 34 and 41 years old.
Having older actors play Harry’s parents totally negates the fact that they were just kids when they died (and also that they were just kids when they had Harry, and considering that they were in the middle of a war, Harry was most certainly an accident, but let’s not get into that right now). It makes their death less tragic, plus it’s just not accurate ok.
These guys are also way too old
Anyone who attended Hogwarts at the same time as James and Lily would have been in their 30s during Harry’s years. That’s just not the case of Alan Rickman, Gary Oldman, David Thewlis and Timothy Spall. Again, the whole tragedy of their lives revolves around the fact that they never got to grow old (or even to grow up in Sirius’ case, but again, that’s another issue/theory). Snape was only 38 when he died, but Alan Rickman was 65 in Deathly Hallows part 2. Now, I love Alan Rickman’s portrayal of Snape as much as the next person, but this age thing still bothers me a lot.
- Another very obvious point : Lily’s eyes
I mean, how do you even screw up so badly? How many times is it mentioned that Lily had green eyes, just like Harry’s? First of all, neither Harry nor the various actresses who played Lily had green eyes, but they hired an actress to play young Lily whose eyes didn’t even match Daniel Radcliffe’s?
I know the fandom has been talking about this for ages, and we should all have moved on by now, but it’s such an important part of the story, I don’t think I can ever get over it.
- On to point number 3 : THIS
James Potter was indeed on the Gryffindor Quidditch team, but certainly not in 1970, as he attended Hogwarts from 1971 to 1979, and as a Chaser, NOT a Seeker.
- Should we even talk about this?
First of all, those two actors look nothing alike, and second of all, there is no way in hell that this is what James Potter looked like. Everything, from his hair (James is supposed to have dark, messy hair) to his face is off. I don’t know who that is but it’s not James Potter.
- Now, onto a less obvious point : the Marauder’s Map.
I’m sure we all have wondered, at some point or another, why the hell Fred and George never noticed Peter Pettigrew on the map. After all, the name would have been following Percy, and then Ron around all the time.
Well, I do have a theory as to why Peter’s name would not have appeared on the map, but the movies ruined that.
Let me explain. In the movie, Harry sees Peter Pettigrew’s name on the map, but in the book, the only person who sees Peter’s name is Remus.
My theory is that the Marauders, when they made the map, made it so that no one could see their names on it, other than the Marauders themselves. That way, if it fell into the wrong hands (say, a professor’s, or Snape’s), that person couldn’t use it to know their whereabouts. But the other Marauders could see their friends’ names so they always knew where to find each other.
That would explain why Remus was able to see Peter on the map, but Fred and George never noticed the man who literally slept in the same bed as their brother.
Again, since Harry sees Peter on the map in the movie, that theory can no longer be applied, and the plot hole remains.
- Finally, my last, and most important point :
The Marauders’ story is literally NEVER talked about in the movies?? Nowhere does it say that Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs were in fact Remus, Peter, Sirius and James. Nowhere does it say that THEY were the Marauders. Nowhere does it say how or why they became animagi. They don’t talk about the Prank, or why the Whomping Willow was planted, or where the Shrieking Shack got its reputation as a haunted house. Why is Harry’s Patronus a stag? Who tf knows. Someone who never read the books would probably be very confused about the whole Marauders thing, because there. is. literally. nothing. about. them. in. the. movies.
