Watching Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Snape: How extraordinarily like your father, you are, Potter. He too was exceedingly arrogant, strutting about the castle.
  • Harry: My dad didn't strut
  • Sirius: Yes he did
  • Remus: Yes he did
  • Peter: Yes he did
  • Lily: Yes he did
  • McGonagall: Yes he did
  • Dumbledore: Yes he did
  • Marauders Fans: Yes he did
  • James: ...yeah I did
Dumbledore starting to notice small things about Remus after his first few years at Hogwarts.

The fact that his friends bought him wolf-feet slippers for his birthday. 

The fact that Sirius attended the Halloween feast dressed as Little Red Riding Hood while Remus donned a pair of wolf ears. 

The fact that James Potter wolf-whistles whenever he walks into a room. 

And of course, he knows they’ve figured it out but he isn’t worried that they’ll tell anybody or put anybody in danger. And he doesn’t feel the need to talk to them privately just to swear them to secrecy. 

He sees the way the Marauders hug Remus and make jokes about his condition and he sees the way that Remus smiles and laughs and he knows that the boy has found friendship and acceptance. He would never interfere with that. 

I have a headcanon that all of Harry’s children (including Teddy) represent the 4 hogwarts houses. Teddy is Hufflepuff, like his mother was. James Sirius is Gryffindor, like both of his namesakes. Albus Severus is in Slytherin, same as Snape, and Lily Luna is in Ravenclaw, like Luna was. Together they unite the 4 hogwarts houses into one family.

I have loved, love and always will love Hogwarts. They are my hope.

Dumbledore let Remus attend Hogwarts because he knew Remus would then feel forever in his debt, meaning he would have a werewolf on his side that he could utilize at a later date. 

I’m not saying it was the only reason, or even the main one. But Dumbledore was very manipulative and if you don’t think he was thinking about being able to use Remus then you clearly don’t know Dumbledore.
