I still can’t believe that Flint’s entire character, his whole persona, his ambitions, his entire life, is canonically based on his romantic love for another man. Literally everything that drives him stems from that love. Everything he’s trying to accomplish, everything he is. Captain Flint is literally a character created by a man who loved another man. And it’s canon.
This is from this fic right here! Interstice It’s a gen fic and Keith centred (how to kidnap me in 2 easy steps) and hOLY CRAP I LOVE IT. This is one of my favourite scenes so I drew it ♡ THE CHARACTERS ARE SO WELL PORTRAYED MY HEART.
I have mixed feelings about the way people approach Wolfstar height in fanfic, as canonically I believe Sirius is described as fairly tall (though that may just be young Harry’s perspective) and I don’t believe Remus’ height is ever really remarked on in the books. But that doesn’t necessarily mean Remus can’t canonically be taller than Sirius, and the fanon definitely tends toward a tall Remus and a slightly shorter Sirius, which I feel is quite satisfying as well as congruous to their overall personas/dynamic.
So when writers imply that Sirius is a bit taller, I maybe don’t prefer it, but I generally make allowances, as they’re thinking it through and going based on canon in a sense. But when writers try to make Remus all tiny and meek and gracile compared to Sirius, I just cannot stand it.
Remus may be thinner (though the weight issue may be different post-Azkaban, when Sirius is basically all sallow, tightly-stretched skin and well-formed bones), but there’s no reason that must mean he’s just smaller all around. And if we are going strictly off the books’ information, there is an illustration in POA depicting Padfoot, Moony, and Prongs as being around the same height, with Wormtail noticeably shorter.
Out of all the characters I have, she’s the one I feel would be the best choice for him. CX
So, basically I have this idea where Rachel actually works as a kind of secretary and accountant (though she is actually a lawyer) for Black Hat and his company because he simply didn’t want to deal with all of the legal aspects of running a business (even though they can run it how they want I’m sure, being Villains and all XD) And well it all goes updownhill from there.
Despite working for a villain, Rachel is able to keep her morals and opinions in the grey. She sees this as nothing more than another job oppourtunity, despite working for those whose ideals do not line up with hers (except for 5.0.5.).
I’m still trying to fully work out how this attraction between them would happen but hey, that will come in due time. : ) I’ll also make an info sheet for her in the future as well for this.
if sarah j no mas kills tarquin (high lord of summer, sweetie pie galore, canonically black character, angel of the sea) in the next book i will be rioting, i will be looting, i will be protesting and i will be pissed

IDK why anyone thinks any marauder fans would be upset seeing their faves bully snape and others on screen. they're the ones who harass actual kids for liking slytherin and openly use "snivellus" as if harry wasn't horrified by seeing his father be a bully. they'd love to see snape "be put in his place" since they seem to have some fantasy that snape still hasn't suffered enough.
Mmm yes, I don’t disagree - I don’t think a portion of Marauders fans would have a problem seeing Snape being overtly and mercilessly bullied. It’s possible that some may re-evaluate if they actually had to witness the bullying and saw how reprehensible it was, but I think for a good percentage, there’s an element where they like to see teenage Severus attacked because of the man he grows to be(!)
However, I think the real issue for Marauders fans with a Marauder era series is that the Marauders aren’t really the tight-knit group that are headcanoned. That’s rather the whole point of the series; James thought that they were all best friends and his vehement refusal to think ill of his friends is partly responsible for his death, and the death of his wife.
Stepping away from James, you can see the schisms in the group. Sirius believed that Remus was the traitor. After the event, Remus thought it was plausible that Sirius had been the traitor. Peter was the traitor. That is not a tight knit group of best friends who are lovable rogues and scamps; this is a group with real problems. These divides don’t happen over night - they occur as a consequence of the events of Snape’s Worst Memory, and the werewolf incident, and other events.
If a Marauders era canon actually explored the rise and fall of the Marauders, and discovered how Remus ended up on the outer, and why Sirius was paranoid about the wrong man, and why James didn’t believe his friends would betray him, and why Lily didn’t contest his attitude, and what drove Peter to betray his friends… If that happened, that would be really interesting.
But from what I’ve seen of Marauder headcanons, I don’t really think that’s what the Marauder fans want to watch. I think they just want to watch four boys (or, more often than not, Lily replacing Peter) having mad bants.
Before Chloe officially met Frank, in episode 6, she said "Frank is his name I think. Or, it’s his name sometimes? That was a little unclear." What was that about? Was he dissociating? Getting identity bleed from the members of his his old unit? Secret drag alter ego?
hey, I actually have another question: would you mind establishing the race/ethnicity of your characters for us? that tends to become a real sore spot in podcast fandoms if left ambiguous
Answer 1: As much as I love the idea of Frank having a secret drag life, you’re correct: it was identity bleed from his unit. They are still very much a part of who he is.
Answer 2: It is unlikely that we’ll confirm any physical appearances while The Bright Sessions remains in the audio format. I hope it doesn’t become a sore spot, but one of the reasons I wanted to make a podcast is so that people could imagine whatever they wanted.
