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.

Harry Potter logic

Troll in the dungeon  → blames Snape

Harry’s broom is jinxed  → blames Snape 

Sorcerer’s Stone is stolen  → blames Snape

Harry’s name was chosen from Goblet of Fire  → blames Snape

Sirius is dead  → blames Snape

Draco becomes suspicious  → blames Snape

Dumbledore is dead  → blames Snape

Snape becomes headmaster  → blames Snape

Watches Snape’s memories and sees eveything he did to protect him  → the bravest man he ever knew.

Things that Potterheads hate about the movies:

1. The movies never brought up Neville potentially being the Chosen One as well.
2. ‘HARRY DID YA PUT YER NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIYAH?!’ he asked calmly.
3. The movies never showed Rita Skeeter as an animagus.
4. They brought back Dobby just to kill him.
5. Ginny.
6. Where is Sassy Potter? I mean, ‘No need to call me sir, professor.’ THIS IS GOLD.
7. Padma Patil is a Gryffindor in the movies, but a Ravenclaw in the books. ???
8. Harry’s hair is NEAT most of the time in the movies.
9. 'You have your mother’s eyes.’
10. Draco’s Dementor attack on Harry in third year.
11. Voldemort’s death was so quick! Like, really? Seven and a half movies leading up to a five-minute death scene??

Am I missing anything?

Three schools. Three Champions and… a love triangle? 

Something went wrong. Terribly wrong. A fourth year Hogwarts student, Hermione Granger, was chosen by the Goblet of Fire as a Champion of her school. Veela Fleur Delacour, Beauxbatons Champion, chose her as her mate. To make matters worse, the Durmstrang Champion, Viktor Krum, also fell in love with Hermione. A possessive Veela and a jealous famous Quidditch player… can they put aside their differences when the girl they both love is in danger?

saiki kusuo/hp crossover where saiki is reincarnated as harry potter with all his memories intact, and the “power the Dark Lord knows not” is just saiki’s ungodly arsenal of psychic powers. 

points: 

  • the dursleys are the worst kind of bullshit saiki has ever seen, and saiki either a) puts an end to it within the first few days, or b) just straight up leaves, no one finds him until he’s twelve and it’s time for him to attend hogwarts 
  • “you have been accepted into the hogwarts school of w–” [saiki incinerates the letter in his hand and goes back to reading his book] 
  • saiki’s greatest ambition in life is to live a perfectly normal, unassuming, peaceful, boring life. an ambition so great it immediately lands him in slytherin. 
  • saiki finds himself saddled with every awful “chosen one” trope that has ever graced the earth. he thought being the protagonist of a gag manga was bad but this is worse
    • this is so much worse, he can’t even play along with the narrative anymore. he is going to turn this into a comedy if it kills him
    • saiki surreptitiously solving the problems of everyone around him. finding neville’s toad. making sure people’s potions don’t explode. dragging draco malfoy’s broom back down to earth when he tries to show off during the first broom riding class. saiki is not going to tolerate any bullshit and he most certainly is not going to tolerate anyone trying to go into the third floor corridor
    • and you know what, since quirrell and voldemort are apparently sharing a body (which – how, actually, it’s so disgusting he doesn’t want to know–) he might as well take care of the problem within the first week of school 
    • voldemort shows up again second year. WHAT THE FUCVK
  • all of his dorm mates are intolerable, and saiki very quickly figures out a system where he will pretend to go to sleep in his dorm, but then he just teleports to an unused hufflepuff dorm and enjoys himself greatly on his own. a triumph. a triumph slightly ruined by the house elves knowing he’s there, but a triumph nonetheless. 
    • “but it’s impossible to apparate within the hogwarts castle!!” saiki stares hermione dead in the eye and then teleports anyways 
  • saiki is very carefully mediocre in every single one of his classes in an attempt to kill any notoriety that comes along with the name “harry potter.” except potions class, because snape always gives him a far worse grade than he deserves and saiki is a mean and spiteful soul. saiki makes a point to be the best god damn potions student that snape has ever had
  • fred & george weasley catch saiki doing something ridiculous with his powers, and they’ve been bothering saiki ever since. saiki is full of regret 
  • fourth yr: saiki stays far far far away from the triwizard tournament. he is perfectly happy when cedric is elected, and claps enthusiastically. the goblet of fire turns blue. it spits out his name. saiki is so furious the goblet of fire cracks in half 
  • but the most important part of this au is 
  • saiki with a wand 
  • he doesn’t even need a wand he’s just pretending to use it 
  • someone: augh, this levitating charm is so difficult! how does anyone do it?!
    saiki
  • this au is 9x better if you imagine that saiki doesn’t even have magic powers – he just has psychic powers, and he’s very good at pretending he has magic. except transfiguration, everyone thinks he’s a bad student cause he has never done a transfiguration spell in his life – but hermione is convinced he’s some kind of secret genius at wandless magic because she caught him levitating a book to himself in the library once. saiki has deliberately failed every magic task appointed to him in front of her since. hermione is convinced saiki is spiting is spiting her specifically by not doing well in class. she’s right 
  • EVEN MORE HILARIOUS TO CONSIDER: saiki doesn’t even bother pretending he has magic, he just shows up to hogwarts and never says anything and never talks to anyone else, he turns in impeccable classwork and homework, but he never performs a single spell because he doesn’t see the point. it gets to the point where the teachers are genuinely worried he might be…. perhaps… a squib? is he a squib? 
    • saiki figures it would be really troublesome to let this go on any longer, but he is also extremely against saying anything out loud ever, and he is also extremely against showing any wordless or wandless magic because who knows what kind of attention he’ll get then 
    • cue incident in class where a student’s spell goes wrong, badly, and everything is in chaos, and saiki is so tired he decides, fuck it, he does not want to deal with this today, and he uses his psychokinesis to forcibly subdue everything that is going wrong. he’s in the corner of the classroom, so he thinks he’s safe & no one will notice – but nope. professor flitwick noticed. professor flitwick is staring at him with starry eyes. god damn it 
    • saiki briefly considers erasing flitwick’s memory of the event, but, well, if flitwick tells the other teachers about what he saw then no one will wonder if saiki is a squib anymore. probably. 
    • but you know what would be great? if everyone thought saiki was a squib and he got fucking chosen by the goblet of fire. everyone riots 
  • there are so many good things that could happen when you combine saiki’s deadpan self + sheer OP ability with the entire ridiculous hp universe and i love it

A little sequel to my fic Protector. From Roman’s PoV, this time!

Summary: Roman & Virgil continue to watch some Harry Potter movies. Roman keeps on learning. *spoilers for Harry Potter!*

It becomes an expectancy, without Roman meaning it to be. Sure, they’d started with Prisoner of Azkaban, but he honestly hadn’t expected Virgil to want to continue watching them. So, when the credits started rolling, and Virgil turned to him and asked, “Well… Goblet of Fire, then? Or do you want to go back and do them in order from the beginning?”, Roman had to stop himself from gaping. 

He’d chosen Goblet of Fire, and now, Roman claps a hand to his forehead as they watch the students from Beauxbatons enter.

“We never considered us getting put into other schools, Virgil! Damn it, that would’ve been fun.”

Virgil grins. “Short decision for you, then. You’re definitely from Beauxbatons, look, they’ve even got blue Disney butterflies.”

“That’s not even a thing.”

“It is, now, I just made it up.”

“And you’re obviously from Durmstrang.”

Virgil scoffs, and shoves Roman so he almost falls off the couch. “You’re literally only saying that because they’re wearing black.”

“They have your aesthetic, my friend… say, do you think Muggleborns would spread the word about Hot Topic?”

“Oh, shut up.”

But there’s no anger in Virgil’s words, and Roman delights in it, that they can banter without either one of them being hurt. 

For a while, they just watch, Virgil actually being the one who’s the most talkative. Roman listens intently as they watch Harry battle merfolk in the Lake, and Virgil explains how jump-scares work, even on repeated viewings. 

And, when Do The Hippogriff plays full blast, Roman really does fall off the couch, howling with laughter. 

“Quick, quick, pause it!” Roman says breathlessly, and he points at the screen, arms flailing. “Look, it’s you!”

Virgil squints, and then snorts. “You made me pause it for that?

“But, why, it’s perfect, they’re even wearing your eyeshadow!”

Virgil presses play, but his sarcastic resolve has broken- Roman can hear him giggling even above the music. “I don’t dance like that at all.”

“Aha! You’re implying you sing like that, then.”

“For crying out loud, Roman…”

But, when they reach the near end of the Triwizard Tournament, Virgil suddenly gets very quiet. The only thing he says is a whispered, “Stupid,” as Harry and Cedric grab the cup. And then, again, as Cedric refuses to leave Harry: “Stupid.”

Roman raises his eyebrows. “You know, most would call that brave.”

Virgil swallows. “Yeah. Bravely stupid.”

When the Killing Curse hits Cedric, Roman is surprised to see Virgil actually shiver. Yes, it’s an upsetting scene, but he knows for a fact Virgil has seen movies with a much higher scare factor than this. 

Virgil catches his eye. “Sorry.” He clears his throat. “Just… Patton was right. He- well. He’s a lot like…”

He trails off, and Roman glances back between the screen and Virgil, oddly touched. He can’t think of the right thing to say. Eventually, he decides on: “Hey, I already told you… I’m not a Hufflepuff.”

He means it as a comfort, and Virgil thankfully seems to take it as such. He curls up next to him and laughs, sounding a little shaky.

“Yeah, I know. That’s- that’s good.”

Roman doesn’t remember falling asleep. The last he can properly remember is still being taken aback at Virgil’s reaction to Cedric, and then suddenly, he’s being jolted awake by sudden movement. He groans, opening his eyes to see Virgil standing upright, shoulders high and tense. 

“Do you want some water?” Virgil asks. His voice is high pitched and overly loud. 

“Wha- no! Did you really wake me up for-” Roman blinks, only just noticing that the TV is still playing, now on Order of The Phoenix. “Oh. I’ll pause it for you, if you want a drink.”

Virgil’s mouth opens and re-opens. “That- that’s not what I-ugh. Fine.”

He leaves, and Roman pauses the movie. As he starts to wake up properly, he realises that maybe… maybe Virgil just wanted an out. An easy way to stop watching the movie. But… he had fallen asleep, hadn’t he, so Virgil could have stopped before then, so why…

Roman blinks and stares at the screen. It must have something to do with a particular scene. He tries to think, but he can’t draw a proper connection, still too tired, and Virgil is suddenly back, holding a glass of water with the air of someone being condemned.

He sits next to Roman, back ramrod straight.

And Roman can’t think of an excuse to not watch the movie without possibly embarrassing Virgil. He throws caution to the wind, and presses play. He’ll find out soon enough, anyway. 

They’re thrown back into The Department of Mysteries, and Roman quickly plays catch-up: okay, Sirius’s death is over, isn’t that the worst part done? So why-

Harry doubles over, and Roman feels like a lightbulb just turned on. It’s the scene where Harry gets possessed by Voldemort. It’s probably one of his favourites, just artistically speaking, but now he doesn’t care for that at all. The soundtrack builds as Voldemort chillingly whispers, “So weak… so vulnerable. Look at me.”

Beside him, Virgil actually flinches. He’s set his glass of water aside, one hand reaching up to cover his mouth.

“Virgil,” Roman says hoarsely. He still doesn’t quite understand, but everything within him is screaming to help. “We can turn it off.” 

But Virgil shakes his head, and he exhales shallowly, as the violins swell, and then, Ron and Hermione are there, and Harry’s thoughts are filled with their happy memories-

And there are unmistakable tears on Virgil’s face, and Roman has had enough. He reaches out and turns off the TV. Virgil turns away from him, and he tries to wipe his tears away, as if it’s a guilty act he should hide.

“Oh, Virgil,” Roman says, and he knows that isn’t enough, but it’s all he can think of.

“S-sorry.” Virgil breathes in and out for a few moments, then he finally faces Roman again. “It’s… that bit. It’s- it’s just-”

Roman closes his eyes, and thinks of every time he himself has cried at a move, and the reason why. His heart breaks at the answer.

“Relatable?” he tries, opening his eyes.

Virgil lip quivers as if he might cry again. He just nods. 

Roman is left reeling. He thinks of the power of that scene, the meaning behind it, of love and friendship, and the look Harry gave when remembering his friends, and the hope in the sound of Hermione’s laugh, and Roman tries to get into Virgil’s perspective, and replaces every single memory with all of them and…

He does the one thing he can think of that is right. He hugs Virgil, a flare of protectiveness in his chest, and he says, “Virgil. You’re many things, and weak isn’t one of them.”

He feels one of his shoulders shake as Virgil lets out a choked laugh against it. “Let’s watch something lighter, for a bit. That OK?”

Roman hugs him tighter. “Of course. Yes. Let’s.”

Headcanon
  • So we know that Hagrid said in GoF that he was excited to see the tournament and that he’d be surprised to have lived long enough to witness it again.
  • That means he’s already witnessed it once, possibly during his own years at Hogwarts. 
  • and we know he went to school with Tom Riddle (better known as Lord Voldemort later).
  • So what if the tournament took place when Tom Riddle was still in school?
  • What if he tried out for it and got chosen as Hogwarts Champion?
  • So let’s imagine that. The great goblet spitting out Toms name. Nott, Rosier, Mulciber and all his other friends admirers cheering loudly. He walks up to Professor Dippet and smirks, looking back at the Slytherin table. 
  • And then there is the first task. In which the champions have to fight (as unofficially tradition) one or more magical beasts. 
  • And to many people’s horror (a little girl with brown hair named Myrtle Warren faints as she sees them for the first time) the beasts are giant snakes. Not Basilisks, mind you, but they are huge and intimidating.
  • Unless your name is Tom Marvolo Riddle and you are able to speak Parseltongue of course. So Tom, who has prepared all kinds of spells, since he didn’t know what the task was, just smiles maliciously as the Minister explains them what they have to do. 
  • And since he is such a drama queen (I CAN TOUCH YOU NOW!) he walks in, shooting stunning spells here and there, never actually hitting a snake, running over the field into the direction where the cave they must reach is. 
  • And the snakes hiss furiously, complaining loudly to each other. 
  • Another one of those imbeciles. Can’t a snake have their rest once in a lifetime?” “Yeah, I agree with you there, Haettung. Let’s get over with it and kill it.
  • And when they advance on Tom, he suddenly stops running and stunning the air. He stands there, opening up his arms, as if awaiting his death. 
  • The people in the ranks around the field scream. “What is he doing? Why should he do that? He’ll die!”
  • And then, back to the ranks, Tom starts speaking to the snakes in Parseltongue. Nobody can see him talking or hear him over the loud hissing of the snakes for that matter. But he smiles at the animals and calmly sais: “My highly honoured friends, I’m very sorry to disturb you in such a way. Let me just pass, kindly, and I’ll walk into that cave and never come back. After me another man will follow. He is rather chubby, I expect he will be a far better meal. So, if you let me go into that cave, I’ll ensure he will come. If you kill me now, you’ll pass the opportunity to eat your fill.”
  • And the snakes look at each other for a moment, and then just let him pass. And he walks calmly through them, each of them sliding away as he approaches. 
  • When he reaches the entrance of the cave, he turns around, looks at the stunned silent people on the ranks, and bows
something wrong? only everything ; cassius warrington character study

i. “you know? that big bloke who looks like a sloth”

cassius warrington is not deaf, and people are not exactly discreet. also, you could hear being called names a certain amount of time until it starts to get into you, until you start feeling how they become a part of you, creeping into your flesh and accommodating into your bones until you look into the mirror and see more sloth than bloke.

he was aware of the unjustified hate he was going to receive just because of being sorted at the  slytherin house, it’s just, some days are better than others, even if every time he feels his spirits wavering, or his anger bubbling in his chest wanting to hex the entire gryffindor student body into tears, there’s always graham montague’s hand squeezing his shoulder.

yoi / harry potter and the goblet of fire AU where victor is the durmstrang champion and yuuri is the hogwarts champion and it’s obvious why victor was chosen because he’s PERFECT but why would yuuri be chosen??? there’s nothing special about yuuri! the goblet made a mistake!

but in competing to best victor, yuuri finds something alight within himself :’) and it turns out that who he thought was an ice prince is actually the softest and warmest person???? and yuuri is slowly but surely falling in love??????

too bad victor has to go back to durmstrang :(

if only there were… a hogwarts exchange program……. so viktor could spend his final year at hogwarts… (there is) (he does)

Dating Hermione Granger would include

•You saw each other in the halls, but it wasn’t until your fourth year that you actually talked. You were seated next to her in D.A.D.A and asked her if it was legal to teach children how to perform illegal curses.

• She didn’t know much about you, but after she heard your name she doubted there was anything more to you than a pretty smile and a reckless personality. Still, your boldness caught her interest.

• After Harry was chosen by the goblet as the Hogwarts champion, along with Cedric, you started getting closer to Hermione. At first it was only to get more information, but you found that you actually liked her. You had no idea then, but she liked you too.

• The first time you asked her out was the day before Yule ball. She blushed deeply, but had to refuse because she already accepted Krum’s invitation. Still, she saved her first dance for you. ( and most of the rest as Krum didn’t like to dance)

• After the lake challenge, you were ready to fight all three headmasters for endangering students. Hermione talked you out of it.

• The rest of your fourth year, you kept getting closer and closer. Except for a few incidents at the library, which resulted in you being kicked out multiple times, you didn’t get in trouble. This was mainly because both of you were friends with the school’s staff and ghosts.

• You officially asked her out at the beginning of the summer vacation, which surprised her and your friends, who thought you were already dating.

• In your fifth year, you become an unofficial member of the golden trio. (If you aren’t a Gryffindor, McGonagall likes you more now).

• Most of your dates are study dates, unfortunately, but you convince her to skip History with

• She tries to keep you out of what the golden trio does in the fifth and sixth years. You try to respect her boundaries, but when you figure out it’s putting her in danger, you directly confront her. You understand why she doesn’t want to get you in that mess, but this doesn’t stop you from trying.

• You try to have a relationship as normal as possible. She isn’t afraid to show she loves you, after she punched Malfoy nobody dares to make fun of her, and of you by extension.

• Most of your dates are at Hogsmade (hope I spelled that right), but when it’s a special occasion or she just feels like spoiling you, she asks the house elves for help. They make the perfect romantic dinner for the two of you, usually a picnic in the astronomy tower.

• She learned that she can’t get any reading or homework done around you. She finds you too interesting to focus on something else.

• Most of the students and teachers respect you. The younger ones sometimes whisper about you two. Some actually started a fan club.

• You don’t talk about the seventh year. After you graduate, you move together. You discuss about having children, but decide to focus on your own careers. While she goes to work at the ministry, you apply for the post of D.A.D.A teacher, half serious half as a joke.

• Surprisingly, you get the post and become the longest working teacher for that subject. You are the Ellen and Portia of the magic world.

• You adopt two cats,at least until the magical world evolves more.

• Some things change iver the years, but the way she hugs you in her sleep doesn’t. She has nightmares from the battles, and is often worried about you because your job is known to be cursed, but it’s nothing new. She was used to it since your school years.

viperofsand  asked:

The idea of the HP world thinking THE CHOSE ONE may be a squib is SO HILARIOUS thank you for this.

the thing is, no one can figure it out if it’s true or not!! 

FIRST OF ALL: saiki made it into hogwarts. he got sorted by the sorting hat. and you can’t get sorted unless you’re magic; it’s common sense. saiki has got to have magic. but – there is the story of a squib who managed to make their way into hogwarts, all the way to the great hall, before they were found out. who’s to say that a squib couldn’t fool them all entirely? 

SECOND: saiki has a wand. granted, a wand that no one has ever seen him use, but a wand nonetheless. students bring up the possibility that it was just stolen off someone else, or it’s just an elaborate fake, and it isn’t really his – but some of the pureblood kids did some snooping with all their old connections, and that wand was sold to saiki by ollivander. no one can say exactly what happened in the shop that day, but the facts are: ollivander’s wands choose the wizard, and if saiki isn’t a wizard, then how could he have gotten a wand? 

maybe ollivander took pity on him, someone suggests. maybe ollivander gave him a wand that wasn’t his. or maybe what ollivander gave him wasn’t a wand at all. if they can just steal saiki’s wand and test it out, maybe it will give them some answers. 

but no one can ever find saiki outside of class. no one can find where he keeps his belongings, either, and every time they come close, some incident mysteriously crops up to distract them away.

being in slytherin doesn’t equal being a bully
  • luna was frequently bullied by people from her own house, who would hide her stuff in odd places without the intention of giving them back
  • luna was called “loony” by people from all houses, including ravenclaw and gryffindor
  • the marauders were casual about hexing/jinxing other students for the fun of it (and bullied severus 4 against 1 for years)
  • when cedric and harry were chosen by the goblet of fire, many students from the hufflepuff house wore the Potter Stinks badges too and made fun of harry
  • many students from gryffindor excluded or shit talked harry repeatedly, for example when they thought he was the heir of slytherin or after the incident leading to cedrics death
  • both ravenclaw and hufflepuff are seen cheering for gryffindor when they win the house cup or play quidditch, but not for slytherin

and so on

so yes, there were plenty of slytherin assholes. that’s not because they were slytherin, but because they were assholes, and assholes come in all house colours.
