owning a little cottage somewhere in a small countryside town, away from prying eyes
remus volunteers at the local bookshop and encourages the little children to read books about magic. he even discovers a few young witches and wizards and smiles when they tell him about hogwarts
sirius stays home and restores old motorbikes, sells them on to make money so he can buy remus little gifts and keep affording his husband’s wolfsbane
remus loves gardening and grows strawberries. he spends his summers tending flowers and planting lilies under the apple trees at the back of their garden
harry and his family visit them twice a year and it’s amazing and exhausting and sirius gives the kids piggy backs, even with his arthritis. but both he and remus are glad to be tucked up in bed together at the end of it all
sometimes they even watch the stars together on their back porch, hands intertwined and blankets tucked around both their legs
the two of them are happy. happier than they ever thought they could be
oh my god harry potter au where jefferson is james potter and hamilton is lily evans and jefferson has been hitting on hamilton for five long years and he’s obnoxious and loud about it and because he’s a dick to anyone who’s not His Friend and anyone who’s not in His House and he’s rich and privileged hamilton 100% thinks he’s just doing it to Make Fun Of Him and so he hates his fuckign guts and is more likely to hex the fucker than give him the time of day
whereas jefferson is hopelessly love sick over this little sleep deprived workaholic asshole whose eyebags are heavier than his entire family’s vault in gringotts and he honestly doesn’t know how to go about talking to the fucker because hamilton seems to Hate him and nothing jefferson ever does makes him smile the way he smiles at his friends
not the flowers jefferson bought him (picked in the dark from the herbology greenhouses which is probably how hamilton ended up with a bouquet of screaming plants at breakfast rather than the lovely blossoms jefferson had meant to pick), not the public speeches of support jefferson gives to hamilton’s cause-of-the-month (he dresses up in his flashiest clothing to grab everyone’s attention and then has anxiety attacks and ends up cutting himself off which is probably why hamilton thinks he’s mocking him), not even his offers of tutoring (jefferson Knows hamilton is as smart as the day is long but he also Knows that his grades in divination are shit and divination is His Subject and he just wants to help hamilton damnit why does he get hexed for trying to help??????????)
jefferson flying paper aeroplanes across the room that land in hamilton’s hair that angrily get discarded or burned immediately. hamilton smugly watching jefferson’s sleeping draught explode in his face for the third time when he’s been making this potion flawlessly since he was twelve. stumbling into each other late at night in the library when neither of them should be out of bed and deciding to just keep quiet about it rather than start a fight. library nights becoming a Thing between them but any time jefferson opens his mouth he seems to ruin it somehow and he spends the entirety of their sixth year slumping back to his dorm and screaming into the pillow until he decides to just Give Up because hey, it’s obviously never going to happen, he doesn’t know why he’s hanging on, hamilton doesn’t and never will Want Him
when seventh year starts up and jefferson doesn’t even attempt to approach hamilton, not even the whole open-his-mouth-and-then-forget-what-he-was-going-to-say-and-stand-there-like-a-fool scenario that has been his friend for many years makes an appearance, hamilton gets all confused and kind of hurt because he thought they were slowly making their way to friends but jefferson is nowhere to be found in the library and doesn’t even try to make eye contact with hamilton in their classes anymore and there’s no inappropriate gifts and bad poetry and valentine’s day rolls around and everyone’s talking about how jefferson’s going to hogsmeade with lafayette, what the fuck, he thought lafayette was his friend? why would laf date the boy he-
oh fuck. this turned into a terrible and ridiculous nonsense post. it’s 3:30am. someone talk 2 me about this
If you ever feel sad just imagine that there’s an alternate universe where you are a fictional character and everyone absolutely loves you and your flaws. People make blogs and lovely edits of you and probably ship you with your best friend. They have your funny one-liners you thought nobody heard as their bios.
Even better, people make fanart of you. They pretend you’re a chief, or a scuba diver in some alternate universe of their own. Some people attempt to replicate your personality because they love it so much. Others dress as you for Halloween.
Imagine an alternate universe where you are so unbelievably loved from people you don’t know exist.
