Imagine if Jily were alive during Harry’s second year
Harry and Ron: *crash the Weasley’s car into the Whomping Willow*
THE NEXT DAY
Ron: *gets a howler*
RONALD WEASLEY! HOW DARE YOU STEAL THAT CAR! I AM ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED! YOUR FATHER’S NOW FACING AN INQUIRY AT WORK AND IT’S ENTIRELY YOUR FAULT! IF YOU PUT ANOTHER TOE OUT OF LINE WE’LL BRING YOU STRAIGHT HOME! — Oh, and Ginny dear, congratulations on making Gryffindor. Your father and I are so proud.
*awkward headshake by Ginny*
Harry: *gets a howler*
*Lily’s stern and angry voice* HARRY JAMES POTTER! HOW DARE YOU PULL SUCH AN IDIOTIC STUNT! YOU COULD HAVE BEEN- *cut off by James’ even more louder, albeit excited as fuck voice* A FLYING CAR! YOU RODE A BLOODY FLYING CAR! I AM SO GONNA TALK WITH YOU ABOUT THIS! I AM SO HAPPY- HECK I AM SO BLOODY PROUD! A FLYING CAR! HOW’S- *cut off by an even more excited Sirius’ voice* MERLIN’S SAGGY PANTS! YOU ARE JUST THE PERFECT MARAUDER OFFSPRING AREN’T YA?! I AM PROUD TO BE YOUR GODFATHER! JUST YOU COME HOME! I’LL TEACH YOU- *cut off by Moony’s frustrated voice* Padfoot! Prongs! NO!
* occasional clapping and sounds of party poppers bursting in the background, obviously done by Wormtail*
Ron during the Feast: How come do you not get scolded! ;_;
Harry (smirking): It’s a Marauder thing.
McGonagall (who obviously hears that comment while passing the timetable): Trust me, Mr. Weasley. It’s truly a Marauder thing.
In a game of truth or dare, a few weeks before Lily finally kisses James for the first time, Sirius tries to fast-track his best friend’s relationship by daring her to kiss “the leader of her favorite lawless pack.”
Lily leans across the circle and lightly kisses the corner of Peter’s mouth.
Peter gets over the shock very quickly and tries to catch her mouth with his, but she’s already laughing and pulling away.
James bursts out laughing, too. He doesn’t need tricks anymore. They’re friends. She likes him. It’ll happen eventually.
It really bothers me when people say Harry isn’t as affected by the Larry thing as Louis is. Just because Harry doesn’t have a baby and six brothers and sisters doesn’t mean he’s not affected. Remember Anne getting hacked? Have you ever seen Harry having a really serious, long-term relationship, just being really chill like Louis, Liam, and Zayn have? Because the 1D fanbase won’t allow it. Not Harries, not fans of other boys, and certainly not Larries. Anytime he’s tried (Kendall, Nadine, Taylor), the girl gets harassed into the ground. No wonder he can’t keep relationships. He only has one sister, but she gets harassed about Larry. Gemma’s friends and boyfriend get it.
One of the Dunkirk actors got harassed because Harry DARED to film a scene where he had to touch a man. Harry can’t do anything without people making it about Larry. He can’t Tweet, he can’t make an offhand joke on an interview without meaning he just came out. He can’t even wear the color green. Niall and Liam can use neutral pronouns to describe dating partners, but when Harry does it, it means he’s gay and with Louis. And so on and so forth. I could go on all day.
Please don’t act like Harry isn’t greatly affected by this fucking Larry bullshit.
