gryffindor sweater

“By Gryffindor, the bravest were
Prized far beyond the rest;”

I like the headcanon that Sirius isn’t a morning person and Remus is one of those annoying people who are wide awake as soon as they open their eyes.

Remus catches you stealing his sweaters

____________________

You sat curled up in one of the enormous lounge chairs in the common room, reading a book and cuddling a box of tissues. The seasonal devil of sickness had gotten to you and now you were going to be sniffling in all your classes. Not only that, but to even consider getting out of bed you had to put on three sweaters. It’s a good thing Remus basically lived next door.

By some miracle, good ol’ Shrimpy (otherwise known as Remus J. Lupin) had grown to be 6 feet tall in the last few years, allowing you to layer an extra two of his sweaters over yours and comfortably navigate he drafty castle.

Just as you turned the page- hoping dearly that Achilles and Patroclus would finally be allowed happiness- your book was snatched out of your hands. You frowned and glared up at the 6'2 monster towering above you. “What on Earth possessed you to do that?” You growled, snatching your book from his hand and carefully marking the page you were to continue on to. In the near silence of the common room you couldn’t help but notice as Remus grumbled something under his breath.

“Would you like to share with the class?” You prompted, standing and putting your hands on your hips.

“I said that that is my sweater,” Remus accused.

“Yes, it is,” You agreed, looking down at the dark grey sweater hanging to your thighs.

“I almost missed breakfast looking for it.”

You smiled slightly and shrugged, reaching for a tissue to wipe your running nose. “I’m sorry, but as you can see it’s for a good cause,” You said, settling back in your chair.

After a quiet Remus-like sigh he joined you, sitting down in the chair next to yours. “We missed you down at dinner,” He said, pulling out a little napkin and unrolling it. Inside was a slightly crushed berry tart. You smiled.

“Is that so?”

“Of course,” He nodded, passing the treat over and then relaxing in his chair.

There was a moment of silence.

“This doesn’t mean you can keep my sweaters.”

“We’ll see.”

the houses as autumn aesthetics
  • slytherin: cold and grey mornings, walking barefoot on the cold floor, drinking coffee in the morning, wool socks, relaxing after a stressful day
  • ravenclaw: waking up early, looking out the window while drinking hot tea, staying up for too long reading a book u like, falling asleep to the sound of rain
  • gryffindor: sweaters that are too big, walking in the forest while quietly singing, sitting infront of the fireplace when its cold, vanilla scented candles
  • hufflepuff: wearing jackets that are too big, taking a walk while its raining, wool sweaters, kicking leaves while ur walking, autumn scented candles
Hogwarts in the fall

Hogwarts in the fall is clusters of children wrapped in striped scarves sporting flushed pink cheeks. It’s first-years with sweater paws and seventh-years who sit with their friends around the fire, trying to soak everything in before they go. It’s leaves hued with red, and gold, and deep earthy browns crunching under foot. It’s the fringes of the Forbidden Forest turning orange and the Whomping Willow losing its leaves.

Hogwarts in the fall is feasts of hearty soup and pumpkin-flavored treats. It’s candles flickering in the library, only to be blown out with a gentle breath. It’s long hallways with dust in the corners, and the stones that are just a little too cold underfoot. It’s Potions classes that make students regret not bringing a sweater and Charms classes where they burn their fingers with heating spells. It’s the smell of smoke, and spices, and home lingering in empty classrooms.

Hogwarts in the fall is a veil of owls in the sky, swooping in to drop off letters and candy. It’s a Hufflepuff’s black cat who scares a pair of superstitious Ravenclaws senseless as it sprints across the path in front of them. It’s Quidditch games that everyone comes to, because their team isn’t losing, not yet, and it’s the parties that rage deep into the night. It’s clouds that cover the stars in patches and fog in the early morning.

Hogwarts in the fall is mismatched socks shoved into boots for a trip to Hogsmeade. It’s fourth year students who jump into piles of leaves and second years who complain about having too much homework. It’s ink stains on fingers and breath that smells like butterbeer. It’s piles of blankets and dorm windows that don’t close all the way. It’s wool hats, and gloves, and mittens, and it’s friends with their arms slung around each other’s shoulders. It’s a time of laughter, and ease, and comfort, and it feels like a warm hug.

It’s Hogwarts. It’s fall. And it’s home.


Winter / Spring / Summer

Dating Fred Weasley would include..

READER HOUSE SPECIFIC || Masterlist

A/N Gif isn’t mine; it’s from Google. Can’t tell which is which so have both!

 GRYFFINDOR READER;

-Staying up later than everyone else, just to cuddle in front of the fire in the common room. Ron, who had passed through several times just scoffed and muttered something under his breath.

-In the Great Hall, after about a week and a half of you two dating, everyone knew to keep a space so you two could sit together.

-You had quite a few classes together, which involved sitting that close to earn a look of disappointment from several teachers, forgetting to listen because of casual flirting or plain snogging; yet again, look of disappointment.

-Before going into Snape’s class, both of you would make a bet on how long you two could snog before Snape says something about it. George writes the times down and would time it whenever you started to snog. 

-After you being on a winning streak with guessing, Fred guessed 7 minutes, while you guessed 6 minutes; you got caught at 7 minutes and 32 seconds. Oh, boy, you didn’t hear the end of that. He had won, and bragged about it too.

-Attending every Quidditch match; Fred always looking to find you just before the game starts, ether winking or blowing a kiss; that earned many Gryffindor’s groaning in disgust. 

-Or if you were on the team, a few matches he was more focused on watching you and making sure you didn’t get injured. But once you proved that you could take care of yourself on the field, he worried less.

-Once, you were in incredible pain, with cramps and couldn’t attend the match; Gryffindor ended up losing. Since then, he believes you being at the matches are good luck. Even though, he completely forgave you for missing the match, he still makes sure you can absolutely attend the match.

-Laying in bed, looking into each others eyes, hands in hair or just roaming, admiring each others features, a few sweet nothings said; whenever you two want to escape from reality, relax after stressful classes or a Quidditch match.

-Getting sent a Weasley sweater, in Gryffindor colours, with a tiny ‘F’ patched onto the sweater. Fred groaning when you unwrap it, edging you not to wear it, calling it embarrassing; but that gave you more reason to wear it proudly.

-You and Fred got together a short while before Xmas, so once you were strutting around with a Weasley sweater, everyone knew it was official.

-Dates during the breaks are the best, if you’re at the Burrow, it involved walks through the garden or cooking (or as Molly liked to call it, making a mess). If you were in the muggle world, trips to the beach at sundown, going to pet adoption centres too look at pets and mucking around in stores became frequent dates.

-Constantly helping Fred & George with their pranks until, teachers and students alike start to become wary of yourself too. Often you would be the one to distract teachers or students whilst they did the prank. 

-Ron taking a while to warm up to the idea of you two dating, but Ginny was over the moon. She soon considered you her old sister, and often came to you for advice. Percy saying “It’s a wonder how Fred got such a responsible girl,” which then locked in yours, Fred and George’s next prank victim.

-Molly admiring that you could cook and so willing helped out doing so, as none of her other kids did. “Trying to become favourite child aye, Y/N?” “Well yes, I think its working too, so you might want to take some notes.” 

-The first time you cried in front of Fred, was when you over said Molly talking to Arthur; saying how she can already seeing your last name changing to Weasley, and becoming Fred’s wife.

RAVENCLAW READER;

-”Studying” together a lot, but not for actual classes or school work. Often, he wouldn’t hear from you in a “concerning amount of time,” and come to see what you were up too. You had discovered some new creature or a way of magic that hadn’t been brought up in classes and you were eager to learn more. 

-He would often just lay beside you and admire your determination with the subject; and try to learn a few things along the way. Whatever you were interested in, he was interested in. 

-You did the same with Quidditch, it was something that interested him, so you tried to learn the rules and how the game works. Rumour has it, he even went to Oliver to get tips on a easy way to explain the game to you. 

-The amount of times that yourself and him stayed up, talking about everything and anything had gotten countless. Much to the annoyance of both your house and his. You would stay in his dorm or your common room.

-Five months into dating each other, on one of the nights staying up till dawn, talking about everything was when the first ‘I love you’ was muttered. Both of you were tired and your eyes were starting to sting; he took your hand, laying a lousy but simple peck before muttering ‘I love you.’ 

-He looked up through his lashes, to see your reaction. You simply ran a hand through his hair before repeating the words back. A small smile crept on both of your faces. “Really guys, gross. I’m trying to sleep.”

-Fred informing you on most recent prank plans. Once he caught you screw up your face half way through explaining, “What’s wrong with it woman?” “Well, if you went to say the Hufflepuff common room instead of the Gryffindor common room, it would throw off a few teachers.” 

-After that, he would come to you with the plan, just to get your opinion if they could improve it. Once you started hearing and helping them  make the plans, the rate of them getting caught went down quite a lot. 

-Sometimes there wasn’t any way to stop the twins from doing the stupidest plan ever devised. Once, it took place in the Great Hall, you sat beside Luna, Cho, Neville and Hermione, awaiting the prank. As it was happening, all five of you narrated the entire thing.

-Having arguments over the dumbest things; why the Bloody Baron is well bloody, whether pineapple belongs on pizza, how would giraffes wear pants, whether the cat that just passed was Professor Mcgonagall or not, how to pronounce yacht. 

-Fred would be very vocal in his affection for you, with constant little compliments, it didn’t matter what you were doing, he found a way to compliment you. “You hair looks amazing darl, but it now has four pens in it.”

-Laying your head on Fred’s lap whilst reading a book, he would be leaning against a tree, discussing more ideas with George for their store. Every now and then, “Whatcha think of that one Y/N?” “It sounds great dear.” 

-He would help you calm down and relax whenever you collapsed under the pressure of class work, grades, expectations to live up too. Meanwhile, you would comfort him whenever he was doubting things or feeling not good enough.

-You would plan out the dates in advance, sometimes down to what booth you’d be sitting in. But Fred would prefer to wing it. Sometimes Fred would give in and let you plan the date.

-Fred couldn’t stand not touching you. He would always have his arm wrapped around your waist or neck, his hand resting on your lower back or your thigh. Constant little pecks, on your hands, neck, forehead, jaw, the crease between your nose and cheek was his favourite. 

-Fred showing you around the secret pathways and passages himself and George had found. You would absolutely amazed that he and George managed to find such beautiful and quiet places. 

SLYTHERIN READER; 

-At first, people didn’t believe it, especially Slytherins. A slytherin, dating a Weasley?? How bizarre. After that, whenever you entered the room, Fred would stop his conversation and yell out, “That’s MY girlfriend!! Guys look at her!!” 

-PDA to the max. This was just more of Fred’s plan to prove that you two were dating. Multiple kisses before going to different classes, sitting closer than humanly possible, sitting by yourselves, giggling at onlookers. 

-So many inside jokes, George got a little jealous after a while, but he got over it. Casual conversations in class or in the Great Hall, and you or Fred adding a small comment. This was followed by yourself and Fred laughing whilst everyone else is just left dumbfounded. 

-Slytherin and Gryffindor literally are polar opposites. Slytherins look out and protect themselves first, whilst Gryffindors are more loyal. Fred was very open at the start of the relationship, meanwhile you took a while to open up.

-You’d be the one whispering idea’s in Fred’s ear then he would go prosecute whatever you suggested. You would be in the background, whilst Fred would rather be front and centre. This mixture worked perfectly in prank wise, getting a new, sharper new perspective for pranks delighted both himself and George.

-Fred and yourself pushing and challenging each other when it came to tests and grades. You always challenged and battled each other to achieve higher than the other. You were rather ambitious and worked hard to achieve whilst Fred was just as stubborn and impulsive. 

-This battle continued onto the field. Both of you were on the Slytherin & Gryffindor Quidditch teams, respectively. You were a chaser. Often time you two would yell banter at each other, must to the disapproval of several teachers. Lee Jordan would mention everytime too.

-As a Slytherin™, you wouldn’t show emotions a lot in public, especially. But when you finally let your wall down to Fred, and let him comfort you; your relationship went to another level. From the moment on, both of you were closer than before.

- Once, he hit your arse whilst you were walking to your next class, when you turned around he would pretend it was George. Then proceed to go mad at him for touching his girl.. That made George go bright red, and that story still gets mentioned at Xmas dinners.

-He would get a little jealous, as for almost the entire first month of your relationship, everyone thought it was a joke. He wouldn’t show his jealousy though, it wasn’t until hours after, say, some boy casually flirting with you when he would casually say a remark about it.

-Dates and walks through the Forbidden Forest. Professor Mcgonagall and Hagrid would turn a blind eye, unless it was after dark. It was a nice, sweet escape from the teasing and general stress. Finding little berries and snacking on them.

-Fred, George, Harry and Ron talking in the Gryffindor common room or Harry’s and Ron’s dorm; Harry was complaining about Malfoy, his gang and Slytherins in general. “I know whatcha mean Harry, Slytherins can be real annoying sometimes mate.” “Dude, your girlfriend is in Slytherin.” “Oh yeah.” 

-Wearing each others sweaters and scarfs. Fred sporting a Slytherin scarf, meanwhile you proudly wear a Gryffindor sweater. Although, Snape wasn’t very happy but he ignored it anyway. 

-F&G would often prank you, but one day you just were not in the mood. But furthermore, they persisted. Half way through the prank, you turned around and said, “I swear if you two continue to keep annoying me, I will slit your throats in your sleep and then bathe in the blood.” George passed you a chocolate frog, “Here Y/N, eat this, your Slytherin is showing.”

-Making out in all of the secret passage ways that himself and George had discovered. Making it yours and Fred’s personal goal to make out in every room, or at the very least, every common room or one room from each floor.

HUFFLEPUFF READER;

-Taking food from the Kitchen, to give to Fred and George after Quidditch matches, knowing they’d be exhausted and starving. They would look forward to what you would bring them and even took guesses on what.

-Doing the most stupidest things, at the most stupidest hours. Listening to Queen, in only a long jumper and socks, sliding dancing on the marble floor. Pillow fights before classes, breaking out in song for no reason, discussing the most stupidest theories.

-Once, you two had a ‘girls night’, although Fred would never admit it too anyone else. He walked in to your dorm, as in the hufflepuff dorms didn’t have the whole staircase thing, to you braiding your hair. Since, his was rather long at the time, you braided his hair too; face masks might also have been involved. 

-Cloud gazing together. He would insist on you laying your head on his stomach so grass didn’t get throughout your hair, lying near the lake. Both of you would point out the stupidest looking cloud and say ‘That’s you.’ Many afternoons were spent down near the lake.

-Being that cute and adorable that you two could probably melt Snape’s heart. Always having a hand resting in anothers or an arm around the neck or waist. Little smiles with rosy cheeks. Eating ice cream together and somehow getting some on each others noses.

-Fred asking you to Yule Ball with a bouquet of flowers, conveniently coloured yellow and red. Earning a best dressed award on the night, time stopped for a second when you two entered. 

-Always defending each other without thought. Every knew not to insult Fred in your presence after you shouted numerous insults at a Ravenclaw student until you got detention. Fred then made it his job to get detention so you were together.

-Cute, adorable PDA. Stares that are a little longer than normal, warming up each others hands, sweet nothings said, blushed cheeks, delicate pecks before separating for class. Grabbing each others hand and twirling them around in corridors.

-Molly making you a Weasley sweater with your house colours, with the tiniest bit of red knitted into the wool. Fred mentioned your love for scarves, so you also received a hufflepuff x gryffindor coloured scarf. 

-Him being excited for you to show him muggle ways of doing things, muggle movies, muggle toys etc etc. His favourite muggle film quick became The Parent Trap and Wreck it Ralph. 

-Building a fort, with password protection, snuggling snacks from the kitchen. Watching Disney films until sunrise. You and his first kiss was in the fort. You were watching Lady and the Tramp, you had gotten some sauce on your upper lip, he wiped off with his thumb, before moving his hand to your jaw and pulling you closer.

-Him laying on your bed in your dorm, whilst you were in the shower singing. He would lay and listen to your singing muggle songs mostly, but he enjoyed it just the same. 

-Skipping a two or three class day to cuddle in his bed, which the sun perfectly shone onto. Fingers running through each others hair, casual resting on bare skin above each others hips. Not caring about the repercussions. 

-Him attempting to braid, or style your hair whilst you were studying, at the start your hair ended up in knots but you taught him simple buns and braids. A few girls were jealous that their boyfriend couldn’t braid their hair but you took it in your stride.

-Becoming good friends with George, Ron, Ginny, Harry, Neville and Hermione. You moved to their table during meal times and sat with one of them in any classes you happened to have together.
