Requested Imagine: Draco Malloy imagine where he and the reader are crushing on each other but neither admits it until the Yule ball comes and the reader shows up late but looks stunning and Malfoy leaves Pansy to be with her, where they finally confess. Anonymous

“Hi, Draco,” you say walking past him in the hallway. He’s so pale you notice immediately the blush creeping onto his cheeks. 

“Hi,” he says and then his friends push him forward making no time for the two of you to actually talk. Tonight is the Yule ball and you wish you were going with Draco, but he’s asked Pansy to go with him. Fortunately someone else has asked you, but he’s no Draco. 

“What are you thinking about?” Lavender Brown asks as she notices you caught in your own thoughts. You shake your head and smile. You’re probably one of the only Slytherin’s who actually has friends from the other houses. 

“Just thinking about the Yule ball tonight. I’m really excited,” you say and Lavender is squealing before you even finish your sentence. She starts telling you all about her dress and her date and you can’t help but feel a little jealous of how perfect her night is going to be. You want that perfect night with Draco. 

“Y/N?” Lavender asks and you have a feeling it’s not the first time she’s said your name. You direct your attention towards Lavender and shrugs apologetic. She seems satisfied and continues talking. 

“Do you want to get ready together?” she asks and you nod. All the girls in Hogwarts is getting ready with each other and you just want to do that too. But getting ready is a long and hard process. After hours and hours of putting on makeup and making the dress sit completely accurate so that it’s showing off all of your assets then comes setting your hair. Suddenly you realise that you’re going to be late for the Yule ball. Lavender hurries down to her date and you follow. Ascending from the stairs you feel a pair of eyes on you. When you look up Draco is starring at you before leaving Pansy behind and hurrying over to you. 

“You look beautiful,” he says standing close. You can feel his breath on your skin and it’s giving you chills.

“Thank you.” 

“I should’ve gone with you,” he says placing a hand on your cheek. You lean into his touch closing your eyes. 

“You really should have,” you whisper and then his lips are on yours. And you imagine how angry Pansy must be right now, but you don’t care. All you care about is the feeling in your stomach right now telling you that this is right and this is real. He pulls away taking a deep breath. 

“Can I have this dance?” 


Who was the Potter cat?

So we all know the Potters had a cat, right?

All we have per descriptions of this cat is that 1. It was enough of a Potter to make the list when they went into hiding and 2. Harry scared it with his new broom he got from Sirius.

There is further no mention of said cat.

On the other hand, don’t we know another, really old, beaten down, ugly, sad, sad cat?

A cat that befriended Sirius Black and seemed to KNOW Peter Pettigrew’s smell, hold a grudge against him, even?

Part-kneazle, so it has a remarkable ability for finding home or things that it has a connection to, like, say, a family member.

A cat that knows it’s way around Hogwarts, around the Whomping Willow, almost like it had been there before with another owner.

A cat that absolutely REFUSED to let Hermione leave that shop without him after seeing a certain rat, was CRAZED, almost.

We have no mention of this cat/kneazle’s age, except that it had been in the shop for a while and no one had wanted it. Magical creatures live a long time. Cats live a long time. It’s within reason that this cat could be 30, even 40 years old.

It makes too much sense.

The Potter cat is Crookshanks.


As much as we love JK Rowling and the blessings of this gif forever more, the world of Harry Potter isn’t without the patriarchal trappings of Muggle society.*

Still, two of the House founders are women (Helga Hufflepuff! Rowena Ravenclaw!), and JK herself is something of a hero to us all, on top of which Hermione IRL (Emma Watson) gets feminism in a serious way. That’s why we are bringing you these clutch feminist posters by artist Louise Reimer, one for every Hogwarts house. This way, you can wave about your house pride and fly a feminist banner at the same time <3

How to Get Along With Your Slytherin Friend

From a Ravenclaw’s Experience

• they aren’t big talkers normally, but if they are then they talk your head off no in-between

• don’t let them plot world domination even if you want it too it’s just a bad idea

• have the second best parties behind Gryffindors

• they like practical things, so rethink the rainbow quill you were gonna get them for Christmas

• stay away from them until they get coffee TRUST me

• they’re FANTASTIC study partners and will never judge you for anything you may do to stay awake including sticking your head in a bucket of ice water

• SUPER competitive, will not hesitate to cheat or trick you into losing unless they just really like you

• they tend to have existential crises and think of the most random things to talk about but it’s alright because we like riddles

• if you can make them smile it’s the most brilliant thing to look at I promise

• Ravenclaws and Slytherins are dangerous together and are a force that no one can reckon with so stay woke bros

“You think the dead we loved truly ever leave us? You think that we don’t recall them more clearly in times of great trouble?”

How to Get Along With Your Hufflepuff Friend Pt. 2

From a Slytherin’s Perspective

• they are smol precious cinnamon rolls too good, too pure for this world so be easy on them

• if you aren’t then they will get sad, and you are a Slytherin and therefore do not handle tears well

• they may initiate physical contact often, don’t be scared it’s just them being them

• let them make a flower crown for you it’ll be worth their smile trust me

• it’s difficult to tell when they’re being facetious or not but just always assume they’re being genuine

• they don’t betray trust, even if your secret is that you banged Professor Snape on his desk a year ago they’ll keep it after dying of laughter

• they will steal your chocolate, keep them away or it’s gone forever

• Hufflepuffs are not afraid of you no matter how scary you try to seem, they can see right through masks

• they’ll probably want to create some elaborate handshake that involves chest bumps and doing the coffee grinder

• they may or may not be Tumblr famous out of Hogwarts (shipping Destiel and Johnlock) even if you don’t know what that is, be careful looking on it because it’s a weird website
