but imagine the one day that james comes back super tired from quidditch practise and decides tat he will sit down for one moment before taking a shower and finding the boys and within seconds he falls asleep. imagine the boys coming into the common room and finding him strewn across an armchair with glasses askew and drool dripping down his chin. imagine how delighted they become because he is always the one who looks after them and how they came finally do something for him. imagine them levitating him up their dorm, charming the sweat mud and drool after him, leaning his glasses, transfiguring his uniform into comfortable sweats, tucking him in his bed, putting a plate of food and some hot chocolate beside his bed, and leaving off to the great hall for dinner. imagine him waking up, becoming a bit puzzled and realizing how he got hear and crying because he has raised such wonderful kids. imagine the boys coming back and finding him blubbering about how proud a mama he is and ending up cuddling with him in a massive ball of cuteness and drifting off the sleep together. and imagine sirius remembering this in azkaban and crying because he can never, ever get back the bestest mom ever he has ever had a n d
I love him so much. After all he’s been through, after everything he’s seen, he is still such a beautiful human being. Nobody gives him credit for all that happened to him. Words cannot express. He literally has been through hell and back, and to know that one of the only things he cared about, harry, was something he died protecting. He lived his entire life for other people. He worked so hard to be perfect. And God damnit he fucking was. After getting kicked out of his house at 16, he had enough willpower to make jokes and be funny and do good in school. Sirius was so effortlessly smart, wasn’t he? He didn’t have to study, he just understood. James must have helped him and ways none of us can imagine. James helped him. And so did Remus and Peter. Don’t even get me started on Peter. He was a friend at some point and he deserves respect. Just like the marauders. Harry was Sirius’ light at the end of the tunnel. He rotted in Azkaban wishing more than anything to be held. To be loved and cherished. He rotted in his jail cell blaming himself for what happened to James. He lost his best friend, he lost his “family”, he lost his life in Azkaban. Everyday for twelve years, the only thing he could think about was how worthless he felt. He had enough left in him to break out. That says so much. Bless Sirius, honestly. He is one of my favourite characters of all time and he deserves love. Fucking bless.
Request:Marauders preference: what music would they listen to? (i’m trying to be inventive here haha) @gryffheadgirl
James: James is a big supporter of local bands. He believes that they are usually more dedicated than most other mainstream bands. His favorite thing about local bands is their sheer and raw love for music.
With that being said he also does like mainstream bands. He would really enjoy The 1975 and Imagine Dragons. James likes rock music, but rock music with more of a pop influence to it.
Alternatively I think he would really have liked some of the music that came out of the 80s. Stuff from The Eagles, Guns n Roses, etc. Music that induces a nostalgic tone but is also loud and fun loving.
Sirius: Sirius would definitely be a rocker. He would love things by the Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand and The Black Keys. Basically anything that’s driven by a strong guitar lead and screams I’m a rebel, but not anything too punk.
Alternatively he would really enjoy rap music. Not the type of rap music that perpetuates violence or the extortion of money, but the type of rap music that has a message. He would identify strongly with Logic because of the his constant tellings of not being able to fit in.
Remus: Remus would be a big fanboy of Coldplay. His favorite album would be A Rush of Blood to the Head. He loves the soulful lyrics and catchy beats of their music. He wouldn’t hate their new stuff, but he wouldn’t be the biggest fan of it either.
He would also like things by Weezer that just really emphasize that young and dumb feeling. He’d appreciate music/lyrics with undertones of melancholy in it. After a full moon he’d probably put on some Keane to settle down.
Alternatively I feel as though he would really like lo-fi hip hop music. Anything with a chill beat that he could just play in the background when he needs a break.
I’ve been listening to Werewolves of London on my Halloween playlist all week and it’s just occurred to me that it came out in 1978 ergo James and Sirius 100% sang it at Remus constantly (complete with howling)
everyone always talks about sirius and peter adopting dog and rat traits but no one talks about james?
imagine james potter slowly loosing his appetite for meat and eventually becoming a vegetarian by 6th year because stags are herbivores. or freezing up whenever bright lights turn on suddenly. or being able to smell what the neighbors three doors down are cooking from his bedroom because, “oi padfoot, you know stags have a better sense of smell than dogs?”, “wow prongs thanks for the new information that you definitely haven’t told me a hundred times already”
What she means: THE MARAUDERS DESERVED BETTER. CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW REMUS FELT WHEN HE WOKE UP ONE DAY, ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT TWO OF HIS BEST FRIENDS WERE KILLED AND THAT HIS OTHER BEST FRIEND WAS SENT TO AZKABAN FOR THEIR MURDER? CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW SIRIUS FELT BEING STUCK IN THAT AWFUL PLACE FOR 12 YEARS, KNOWING EVERYDAY THAT REMUS DESPISED HIM, AND THAT HE CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT? HOW HARRY WAS BEING RAISED TO HATE HIM AS WELL WHEN HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE CLOSEST PEOPLE TO HIM? AND JUST WHEN REMUS GOT SIRIUS BACK, JUST WHEN HE GOT HIS BROTHER BACK, FINALLY KNOWING THAT FOR THE PAST 12 YEARS HE’S HATED THE WRONG PERSON, HE HAS TO WATCH SIRIUS FALL THROUGH THE VEIL, LOSING ONE OF THE ONLY GOOD THINGS IN HIS LIFE FOR GOOD.
