“Potter, I assure you that my name is a better choice.”

Harry splutters indignantly. “Draco, I don’t see why we can’t just choose my name.”

Draco rolls his eyes, lounging back on the couch with his hands behind his head. “I need to carry on the Malfoy name. Besides, Draco Potter doesn’t sound right, wouldn’t you agree?”

“Yeah, well, Harry Malfoy doesn’t sound right either!” Harry replies, glaring at Draco. “I think Potter sounds better with your name than Malfoy does with mine!”

“Pansy thinks mine is better.”

“Yeah, well–”

“As does Blaise,” Draco interrupts. “And all of our friends.”

“I don’t think Hermione or Ron ever said that!” Harry crosses his arms and stares challengingly at the blond, tapping a foot on the ground.

“Ginerva did. Shocked?” Draco smirks as Harry just blinks, startled. “You see, surprisingly, she has some sense in her.”

Harry huffs, plopping down upon the couch by Draco’s head, turning a bit to look down at him. Draco just smiled innocently back. “Oh, stop giving me that face, you prat. You know she hates you calling her Ginerva, and of course she has sense, she’s the captain of one of the best quidditch teams in the world!” He pokes Draco in the shoulder. He just smiles wider. “You’re evil,” Harry mutters. “Why exactly are we getting married?”

“Because you love me,” Draco replies simply, poking Harry back, in the cheek.

“Ow.”

“Suck it up, Potter.”

“Says you.” Harry replies, rubbing his cheek. “You were wailing last night at three in the morning because you stubbed your toe on the wall!” He rolls his eyes. “I swear, if we didn’t have silencing charms on this house the entire neighborhood would’ve been woken up.”

Draco snorts. “As if. Keep on topic. I think we should hold a vote.” He stands, smoothing his ruffled shirt before walking over to the fireplace. “Come on over here, Harry. We’re going to get all of our friends.” He takes a ceramic jar from next the the fireplace, throwing a small handful of floo powder into the dark space. “Granger-Weasley Residence!” The flames flare bright green. “Well come on then, stick your head in.” Harry and Draco do so.

“Hermione? Ron?” Harry calls into the dark room. A minute or two pass before soft footsteps creak through the house.

“Honestly! It’s three in the morning, you two!” A clearly recently-woken Hermione pads into the room, rubbing her eyes as she flicks on a light. Harry and Draco stare at her, stifling giggles. “What?”

“You have a lock of hair sticking strait up,” Draco offers.

“You look like a unicorn,” Harry snickers.

“Ugh!” She whisper yells, quickly flattening her hair against her head, looking around and grabbing a hair tie, which she wraps her hair in to keep in in place. “There. Satisfied? Now quiet down, I don’t want you two to wake Ron up.” She whispers fiercely, glaring at the two of them halfheartedly.

“’mione?” Ron’s sleepy voice echoes into the room. “Where’d you go?” His speech is stifled by yawns.

“Oh, now you’ve done it!” Hermione marches out of the room to get her husband.

“Do you think we should be worried?” Harry whispers to Draco.

“Of course. She’ll probably enlist Pansy to help with her revenge plan.”

“Maybe she’ll attack us with books.”

“I wouldn’t put it past her.”

Hermione comes marching back into the room, tugging Ron by the arm, who looks white startled and suddenly awake. “What are you whispering about?” She asks suspiciously.

Draco smirks. “Oh, nothing. Weasley, I didn’t know you wore pink pajamas. With snitches flying all over them?” He snickers. Harry tries to hold back a laugh.

“Hey!” Ron retorts.

“Ron, you have to admit they are a bit funny,” Harry says.

Ron sighs. “Yeah, well, Hermione made me wear them. Luna got me them for Christmas, and now she finds them entertaining!” He frowns. “At least she got normal ones.”

Hermione shakes her head. “Mine are covered in kittens.”

“So?”

“That tickle you while you sleep,” she finishes dryly. Turning back to Draco and Harry, she puts her hands on her hips. “So, what exactly compelled you to wake both me and Ron up at three in the morning?”

“Three twenty five, actually,” Draco supplies. Hermione glares. “Okay, okay. We can’t agree on whose name we will take when we get married.”

“So Draco and insisted on waking you all up for a vote,” Harry finishes, earning a push from Draco. “Hey!”

“Will you two stop fighting?” Hermione shakes her head, exasperated, but a smile tugs at her lips. “Well, you so politely mad sure we were awake, why not. Clear out so we can get through,” she orders, flicking her hand in a gesture to back from the flames. Harry and Draco take their heads from the floo, making way for Ron and Hermione to come through. Not a minute later, the two step form the flames, brushing the soot from their pyjamas.

“So why am I awake at three in the morning?” Ron mutters.

Draco smirks. “Well, now that you’re here, we’ll get Pansy and Blaise.” Harry tries to back away. “You get to help, Potter.”

“Pansy is going to kill me,” he whines, but follows Draco back to the fire.

“Parkinson Manor!”

Pansy looms in front of them, an eyebrow raised, and a cup of tea delicately held between her hands. “What brings you here at this hour? You’re lucky I’m awake already.” She takes a sip of her tea.

Harry groans. “Please don’t go into lecture mode, Hermione already told us off for waking her up at three i–”

“Three thirty one,” Draco interrupts.

“Fine, three thirty one in the morning.”

“I will explain if you come through, Pansy.” He backs from the flames, pulling Harry with him. Soon after, Pansy stepped through, taking in the site of Ron and Hermione still half asleep sitting on one of the couches, before shrugging and flouncing over to a couch. “Okay. Lastly, Blaise. Potter, you do this one yourself. I’ll brief Pansy on the situation.”

Harry shakes his head. “I hope Blaise is already awake as well…” he mutters under his breath. “Zabini Residence!” He tosses some floo powder into the flames, then sticks his head through. A house elf pops up right in front of him with a crack.

“What can Misky do for you, sir?” She squeaks. “Does sir need Misky to fetch Master Zabini?”

“That would be great, Misky, thanks.”

Misky dissapears. A minute later, she appears again with a crack. “Master is on his way, sir.” She bows, before dissapearing, most likely to go back to sleep.

Soon after, Blaise walks into the room. “What is it, Potter? It’s three in the morning.”

Harry sighs. “I’ve already heard that. You might want to come through. And don’t blame me, blame Draco.”

Blaise just raises an eyebrow and beckons for Harry to back up. “Well, clear out then.”
Harry does so, for the third time, and waits for their last early morning guest to floo in. Seconds later, Blaise is in the room, seated next to Pansy. With a flick of his wand, Draco shuts off the floo. “Alright. So, you all know why you’re here.”

“I don’t,” Blaise cuts in.

“Everyone excluding Blaise, then. Anyway. Harry won’t see that Malfoy is obviously a better name for us to share once we are married,” Draco continues.

“Potter is a much better name,” Harry cuts in. “But Draco won’t see sense.”

“As if you have any sense.”

“You–”

Their voices are ubrubtly cut off with a flick of Hermione’s wand. “You two, stop squabbling.”

“Also stop waking people up at three in the morning so we can listen to you argue,” Blaise says dryly.

Hermione nods. “I won’t take the silencing charm off until you agree to not argue, and explain effectively. All right?” They both nod, and a second later they are free to speak again.

“Well, if you insist, we can’t agree on a surname,” Draco says, crossing his arms.

“So Draco wanted you guys to vote on which was a better name,” Harry adds, leaning into Draco and causing them both to lose their balance. He snickers as Draco glares and stands up, his hair ruffled. Harry just stays sitting upon the floor.

“Prat,” Draco mutters.

“So you basically woke us up to vote on which name you were going to choose,” Pansy states. “Well, woke them up since I was already awake.” She flicks a strand of hair from her face, smirking.

“Well…” Harry starts, hesitating.

“Yes.” Draco finishes. “So?”

Ron shrugs. “Well, I vote for Harry’s side.”

“Draco’s side, of course,” Pansy says.

“I’ll go with Draco’s side as well.” Blaise leans back, closing his eyes as if to go to sleep.

Hermione doesn’t respond. When they turn towards her, she simply looks at them both oddly. “You realize that you could combine your names, right? Like Ron and I did.”

They both stare at her, then look at each other.

She continues, looking at them thoughtfully. “Of course, you would have to figure out what order you would put your names in…”

Harry stands, spinning towards Draco.

“Well I think–”

“No, my na–”

- during lessons, the middle of a quidditch game, an important exam, their head is in the clouds

- good with languages because they’re great at communication and empathy

- probably fluent in ancient runes by fourth year and can communicate with unicorns

- makes self deprecating jokes but secretly thinks they’re better than everyone

- very emotional sometimes, but doesn’t always show it because of their introversion

- has cried in the common room at least 3 times tbh

- understands you better than you understand yourself

- seriously, they spend 90% of their time silently listening to and studying people  

- everyone thinks they’re unable to talk or just creepy as hell

- can be unreliable because they follow their emotions, and they have strong emotions. “actually professor, i wasn’t in the right mindset to take an exam today! I’ll come back tomorrow when my aura has changed.”

The Hogwarts House Matrix

So this entire post arose from a conversation I was having with a friend of mine. As we are wont to do, we were discussing Harry Potter and sorting various acquaintances of ours into each of the four Houses when my friend confessed she wasn’t sure of the House to which she belonged. I said, “Gryffindor” without a second thought.

But my friend was unsure. Pottermore had sorted her into Ravenclaw, not to mention her sister and one of her best friends (both staunch Gryffindors) also told her she was Ravenclaw. She herself thought she might be Hufflepuff. However, as the Ravenclaw-est of Ravenclaws, I felt obligated to correct her. I tried explaining my theory of the different value axes and alignments over Gchat, but decided visual aids were probably going to be more helpful.

Hence the Hogwarts House Matrix.

I’ve divided these traits into primary alignments and supporting characteristics

To explain the alignments (in declining order of weight):

Governed by morality vs. ethics: Ruled by a sense of Right and Wrong vs. Correct and Incorrect.

Externally vs. internally validated: Derives a sense of satisfaction from achievements and praise vs. personal accomplishments.

Socially vs. individually orientated: Effects and is affected by social situations and peers vs. is unaffected by others’ opinions.

The supporting characteristics are as follows:

Reactive vs. proactive action: How one responds to external stimuli.

Subjective experience vs. objective reality: How one believes the world should be judged.

Driven by passion vs. guided by reason: The raison d’être for doing.

Really, in my opinion, you can generally figure out which House you’re in by answering two questions:

1. Are you governed by morality or ethics?

2. Do you derive satisfaction from internal or external validation?

Answering those two questions gives you a pretty good picture of what I’ve defined as the core value of each House:

Gryffindor = morality + external validation = Justice

Hufflepuff = morality + internal validation = Fairness

Slytherin = ethics + external validation = Success

Ravenclaw = ethics + internal validation = Knowledge

The characteristics of Bravery, Hard Work, Ambition, and Cleverness are external manifestations of the core values. You must be brave to seek justice, you must work hard to be fair, you must be ambitious to find success, and you be clever to gain knowledge.

The Cauldron Bottoms of Percy Weasley

So, reading the Goblet of Fire as an adolescent, I thought that Percy’s cauldron bottom report and his attempts to do something about cauldron bottoms were silly, as clearly is the intended view in the writing- all of the ‘likable’ characters seem to think that, anyway. Rereading as an adult, though, I’m sitting here thinking, ‘oh, that’s a perfectly valid and important thing to be concerned about.’ I mean, is it ground shattering and world changing? No. Is it sexy or romantic? No. Does it give you feelings, like house-elf rights? No. But it is important. Just think: depending on the potion your making, the process has the potential to be time consuming and expensive. Some potions take days, weeks, or even months to brew. Some of the potions ingredients we’ve seen are pricey. If the potion fails because the cauldron fails, all that time and all those resources are wasted. There’s a clear economic motivation to prevent cauldron bottom failure, because of that. More important than the economic reasons, however, is the issue of safety. We’ve seen from the various potion mishaps in the books in Harry’s Potions classes, that some potions are dangerous before or even after they’re finished. You can think, therefore, of the spillage that would result from cauldron bottom failure as the equivalent of a hazardous chemical spill. That’s not something that is desirable. But beyond that, just think what cauldron bottom failure would mean for various important plot points in the books. Just think, if the day before Hermione’s Polyjuice Potion is supposed to be complete in the Chamber of Secrets, her cauldron bottom failed and all that effort was wasted. Think of how frustrated and disappointed Hermione would have been (although unbeknownst to her, it would save her weeks of being a cat-person). Or just think, if you’re making Wolfsbane Potion on the night of the full moon for your colleague the werewolf and right at the last second of brewing, your cauldron bottom falls through, the entire potion is lost and there’s no time to brew more before the moon comes. And then suddenly you’re being eaten by a werewolf. I think you’d find cauldron bottom thickness important then, wouldn’t you? 

H.G Preference #2:

What she does to annoy you: She always interrupts you when you are speaking and doesn’t hide the fact that she’s not interested in what you have to say (of course she doesn’t do this all the time). You know that she is tired at the end of the day and wants to relax and so do you, but she can be really selfish sometimes and all you want is to converse and spend time with her. It annoys you and it hurts your feelings when she downright ignores you when you’re speaking and is instead doing homework or reading.

It also irritates when she tries to force her beliefs onto yours (ex: house elf rights) and she gets angry when you try to reason with her or ask her to please respect or try to understand your perspective of such matters.

What you do to annoy her: You are always dancing between that fine line between being a responsible student with straight A’s and procrastinating everything till last minute. Sometimes you just don’t give a damn at all. It annoys the fuck out of Hermione when you try to get her to do the same thing you do because “you don’t want to be alone” even if she’s busy with school work at the time and you don’t take into account that she has a different way of doing things. Contrary to (your) common belief, the brain retains and memorizes things better when you do them before the day of the exam or the day homework is being collected.

It makes her want to hex you when you don’t stand up for her or take her side in an argument even if (in those far and sparse situations) you both know that she’s wrong. The way Hermione sees it, if she’s going to be making a fool out of herself and she realises this halfway through the argument, then as her girlfriend it is your job to do it as well.

anonymous asked:

What are your thoughts on S.P.E.W.? Would you be a part of it? Thank you! :)

…It’s complicated.

First of all, I definitely think that Hermione’s crusade was never really about the house elves. It’s notable that Hermione’s interest in S.P.E.W. began on the same day she first experienced of widespread anti-muggle (and by extension anti-muggleborn) sentiment in her adopted world. But because the muggleborn issue was far more complex and sensitive, so she latched onto a different harmful cultural norm.

I also think that Hermione often fails to give house elves the very same respect and agency of which she accuses others of denying them. She tells house elves what they should want, insults them, and tries to trick them into something she thinks is best.

That being said, I do see a need for reforms there. I believe in a happy medium, a world where there are certain rules about what you can and cannot do to house elves, they are entitled to a set amount of money and time off, and they can leave their family if they wish to do so. On the other hand, I don’t think house elves will ever *not* want to work, nor do I think that humans should run over their desires and aspirations in an attempt to help them. Any reforms of house elf rights should center upon the house elves themselves, and not be driven by humans who think they know best. If they care more about instituting a retirement age than days off, then that’s where the focus should be. If they would rather remove the stigma behind leaving a bad family instead of worrying about wages, that’s where the focus should be. What humans want isn’t necessarily what house elves want.

So I support the cause itself, but don’t support the way Hermione approached the problem.

Hello! I've just started to really get into Draco/Hermione fanfiction. I'm obsessed. Can you recommend some of your favourites for this newbie? Thank you thank you xx

But of course…

The Man with the Blue Beard by @carmineduvale
When Draco Abraxas, Viscount Malfoy, ran away from the scandal he had shaken London up with, he didn’t expect things would go down so fast. So far, there had been a flood, a weird bacchante girl, that little bookworm who spilt tea all over his fine shirt and, before he knew it, the words “I do” were making their way out of his mouth.

Hospital Stay by @unknown-authoress
Draco Malfoy is in the hospital. Hermione Granger is his Healer. Light fluffiness to make a bad day better.

Sucks for Smith by @raviesnake
“‘I, on the other hand, was paired with a young, fiery little number. I hope she enjoys long holidays in the Caribbean and naming children after constellations, because she’ll be doing both in less than six weeks,’ he said as he peered greedily down at the parchment.“

Presque Toujours Pur by @shayalonnie
Bellatrix’s torture of Hermione uncovers a long-kept secret. The young witch learns her true origins in a story that shows the beginning and end of the Wizarding wars as Hermione learns about her biological father and the blood magic he dabbled in that will control her future

Erised by @elantil-arcacia
She was the girl who fought for house elf rights, the one that picked the ugliest cat in the shop because she didn’t want it to be unloved, and if it gave her a twisted enjoyment to be the salvation to her once tormentor, she didn’t show it. If saving him was saving herself as well, she didn’t show that either.

Out of Mind by galfoy (everything she writes is magic)
By all appearances, Hermione Granger runs a successful bookshop, lives a happy life, and wants for nothing. However, when a person from her past starts asking uncomfortable questions, Hermione realizes that things are never as they appear.

Through the Looking Glass by damnedscribblingwoman
Draco has problems. He’s a Death Eater, Malfoy Manor is in the hands of the Order of the Phoenix, and the war doesn’t seem to be dwindling down any time soon. Also, he’s invisible. And he knows just who to blame for that.

Goodbye To Yesterday by @dulce-de-leche-go
Memory charm fic. Hermione pays the price for helping the man she loves with his mission. It’s not easy to disappear in the eyes of the one you love. It’s much harder to have it happen by your own hand. M for language and mild sexual references.

Stark Raving Mad by @sableunstable
Take one Christmas party, a cocky, overzealous Gryffindor, a bushy-haired bookworm and an arrogant, possessive, platinum blond Slytherin, who may or may not be a jealous git. Now, mix them all together and what do you get? One hell of a headache!

Grey by @savvyshka
One morning, Hermione woke up to a grey world. Literally. All the colours were gone, washed out for good.

Taming Granger by @jayciethings
If there was one thing Draco excelled at, it was plotting. Granger didn’t stand a chance.

The Bright Winter Stars by Captainraychill
For reasons unknown, Narcissa Malfoy stopped visiting her son in Azkaban. Hermione Granger can’t let him spend Christmas Eve alone.

Queen of Heaven by riptey
Draco’s only friend in prison is a spider, and its venom causes hallucinations of Hermione. The only problem is that Dream Hermione keeps insisting she’s real.

Ghosts by Rizzle ( @andgladly)
Five years after the end of Voldemort and Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy is out of Azkaban and is a shell of his former self. Hermione Granger is doing her best, but she has demons of her own to deal with.

anonymous asked:

Hi, feeling left out and weird because I'm a Gryffindor and Horned Serpent. Can you do a description of this? I mean, I think fast and I'm fiery, but I'm not a "nerd" as some people might associate with HS.

No need to feel left out! When you split every personality to fit into only 4 options, you get a lot of variety! You could easily have all the qualities of gryffindor - brave, passionate, and yes very fiery while still fitting right in with Horned Serpent! All it means is that, like you said, you think fast. You’re a bit more rational than the more impulsive or even impractical gryffindors that could fit in with the other Ilvermorny houses. You value thinking through your actions, learning every step of the way, and may even have a knack for psychology. You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to be a Horned Serpent (but who are we kidding, would it be so bad to have some of his traits?). There’s nothing wrong with having a grounded center in logic, common sense, and thoughtfulness to go with that fiery personality! Maybe think of badass intellectuals like Lara Croft. It could also just mean that you’re full of inventive ideas, you may be creative, or just have a knack for problem solving.
Gryffindor Horned Serpents value friendship, bravery, and camaraderie, but use their seat in rational thought to help each other out. Hermione is definitely a Gryffindor Horned Serpent, not because she loves to study but because she plans things out and is full of innovative ideas. When she sees injustice she organizes something that will (hopefully) practically and thoroughly end the mistreatment. You can see this in how she organized and convinced Harry to do Dumbledore’s Army, or the way she tries to rally for House Elf rights. Her fiery indignation gets funneled into her great ideals, and rational follow through.
Of all the Horned Serpents, the ones who also fit in with Gryffindor are more warm and brave. They don’t just have great ideas, but have the fire to act and a fearlessness that can be tough for anxious Horned Serpent. These people have an interest in using their knowledge or creativity for a good cause, and make very adept leaders - even if they are wracked by insecurities about taking charge and letting people down. They shouldn’t worry, they have a feeling of power about them and many people are intimidated by their intelligence. Unlike most Gryffindors, these people are less likely to be naive, or misjudge what they can accomplish.

petuniaevans  asked:

I just have a question about Hermione Granger's type. The official MBTI site says she is an ISTJ, and I'm just curious as to what your reasoning is for ESTJ rather than ISTJ for her? I honestly think both of the typings make sense for her, and I just want to see all sides.

Four Reasons:

She’s always putting herself forward and volunteering to be in charge (she loves being a Prefect and bossing people around because NOW SHE HAS THE AUTHORITY TO DO IT, whereas before she was just a student; she wants to be heard in class, she rallies other kids around Harry and comes up with the idea of a private Defense Against the Dark Arts class, etc). These are things more often associated with extroverts.

Te is so effortless for her. The higher the function, the better it works. An ISTJ is good with Te, but an ESTJ is KING of Te. Hermione shows Te from her first introduction in the story to the end. She has no problem juggling tons of classes and turning in assignments on time, and having charts and maps and organized folders and word counts and everything else that is a teacher’s dream (and a nightmare for Ron and Harry). She LOVES that stuff.

She’s good with Ne. Hermione puts two and two together, and thinks up alternate possibilities (sometimes negative ones, as lower Ne is prone to doing) way before the boys do. She figures out A LOT as it is happening and often knows the truth before it becomes a plot point (ie, Lupin), and she trusts these associations and conclusions more than an inferior Ne might. The fact that she is so quickly perceiving information and opening up into broader contexts and possibilities strongly suggests that SiNe is working close together. She’s also cautious, but not as cautious as Si-doms tend to be (inferior Ne is a pain). One example would be rebelling under Umbridge – they take precautions, and Hermione is great at thinking up ways to protect their secret, but inferior Ne would be more hesitant to recruit people and start meeting in secret, until they figured out what the fall out would be like.

Fi is so hard for her to deal with. Hermione can have pretty childish emotions at times, more so than a tert-Fi user would have. I call your attention to her wanting to liberate the house elves and refusing to see Kreacher for his bitter, nasty self. This is typical inferior Fi … deciding what is “morally right,” and then trying to enforce it and get others on board (trying to actively recruit other students, and then violating the house elf rights by hiding things in the Common Room for them to find, thus creating more work for Dobby, because all of them become so offended they won’t clean the room anymore, for risk of being ‘set free’ by finding knitted caps). A higher Fi would have greater respect for the wishes of the house elves (as Harry has), and an ISTJ in this cause would be more prone to simply act on their feelings without the extroverted desire of including everyone in their cause. Hermione also has emotional outbursts under times of great stress, which is a hint that her Fi is inferior and harder for her to control or deal with when it does manifest.

ISTJ “works” for Hermione, but she has a super-charged Te/Ne if that is the case. I think she’s far more proficient with Te than Si, thus an ESTJ. A character can look introverted without being a cognitive introvert.

anonymous asked:

do you have any headcanons for autistic Hermione Granger?

yeah!

  • one of her special interests is history of magic (anything magic related is her SI tbh)
  • often talks very fast and very loud
  • stims by reciting spells and flapping
  • very attentive to little details that others do not notice 
  • has a higher sense of justice (very interested in house elf rights)
  • also stimming by petting crookshanks !!!
  • loves to infodump to harry and ron about her favourite spells + her speech often feels as if recited from a book when she infodumps
  • difficulty making friends

feel free to reblog and add more because i cant think of any others

Okay but the Scamander’s most likely had a house elf because those were the thing to have, and try not to think about young Newt sending letters not his parents, but their house elf, and the house elf sending letters back and Newt getting teary eyed because he misses his best friend so much. And him not understanding at first why he couldn’t come with Newt. And not understanding why the other kids were so mean to their house elves. And him coming home one winter break with a black eye because he tried to stand up for house elf rights and his house elf telling him that “master should stay quiet about their friendship” while putting ice over his eye. And then Newt meeting Hermione when she joins the Ministry and thanking her personally for SPEW because he was never brave enough.

son-of-rome  asked:

I need to take a break from angst and was thinking that you probably have some good jasper fluffy head canons... maybe even hp ones...

hp!au jasiper fluff i can do B)

  • jason is AWFUL at charms. as in so abysmally bad people move out of the way when he attempts new charms in class. granted, his grades in the subject are mostly okay because he’s great at the theory stuff, but other than that–the boy has yet to really get a grip on charms that aren’t defence related. and it tends to drag his confidence down somewhat because he’s expected to be good at so many things. it’s never been in his nature to knowingly disappoint someone, and as desperate as he is to get his father’s approval, to make people see him as more than hercules and thalia’s dorky baby brother–he’s even more so desperate to prove he can keep on top of everything thrown at him. quidditch, grades, being a prefect.
  • piper is just as bad at defence against the dark arts. which bothers her to no end because her charms work is exceptional, and you’d assume the spellwork is mostly the same, right? wrong. there must be something in the theory that she’s missing or something because her defensive spells just go PHUT! right as she tries them. and it irritates her that she can’t do this because it makes her feel weak, because slytherin is too unfairly associated with the dark arts and she can’t even get to grips with how to repel it. silena was fantastic at the subject, and while she could ask for help–she doesn’t want to admit she can’t do this, or pull her sister away from head girl duties. 
  • so after a particularly woeful test result, their teachers in each subject suggest they get tutored by ‘someone who is good at this subject–maybe even the best in your year!’. which was probably mortifying for them to hear, but. guess which two are DETERMINED to improve their grades as the OWLs approach the next year? these two.
  • so you can imagine the look on piper and jason’s faces respectively when they walked into the library to find: Mr Can’t Handle A Prank and Miss Gives The Stolls A Run For Their Money. (aka, jason’s eyebrows shot up so high the look of surprise should’ve been offensive, and piper groaned internally for thirty years because this whole situation just got more embarrassing.)
  • but, surprisingly– piper sets aside her pride over the matter to actually learn from him, because he doesn’t talk down to her, and explains/answers all her questions without being patronizing or bossy. he’s just genuinely happy to help? and jason, being used to her being a force of extreme mischief, is just as surprised at how well piper handles his badly cast charms, helping him relearn and even offering her own tips and advice to further help. and she doesn’t even make fun of him for fucking up the locomotion charm (coughs, he may or may not have almost knocked himself out levitating something) like a few of the others would have.
  • they actually…really like studying together. 
  • at least that’s what it started as, studying together.
  • it kind of slowly turns into scooting their chairs closer and closer in the library, swapping seats in class so they can sit together during DADA and charms, teasing each other less affectionately and more flirtatiously over grades (”looks like we’ll have to make up for that failed test in the library later, hm?” / ”any excuse to get me alone, huh?”).
  • it goes from shyly asking “did i get it right?” across a table to very badly hidden admiring looks over each other’s improvement. it goes from grinning at each other in the hallway when they pass with their usual crowd of friends to walking together, mostly under the guise of “oh, they probably want to talk about the test coming up!”
  • it goes from them having a fairly typical “please stop pranking people in the halls” / ”please remove the metal pole up your ass first” kind of relationship, to them being weirdly attached. jason has to stop himself laughing at her jokes, because even though he’s a prefect, he can’t help but admire some of her jinxes and how efficiently she casts them. piper starts to reconsider who she pranks, because there’s a lot to know about DADA and a lot of it comes from wanting to protect people, even from silly hexes.
  • it kind of moves on from just studying to spending time together on other things, finding how much they have in common (piper, as it turns out, loves quidditch very much, and jason has an oddly endearing fascination with myths from multiple cultures, and the pair of them could talk about dwarf and house elf rights for hours)
  • jason doesn’t realize he likes her til they’re working on patronus charms together for fun, and he considers a memory of them sneaking out to practice on their brooms as a memory happy enough. 
  • piper doesn’t quite realize til she’s helping drew brew amortentia potion to practice for a NEWT level test, and she can smell a bunch of things that are entirely jason (broom polish, coffee, brownies–and that scent on the quidditch pitch, like freshly cut grass and the earth after a rainstorm)
  • sadly they’re both still awkward, nervous babies
  • you’re not really supposed to fall in love with your best friend, are you?
  • [leo groaning for hours over these idiots]
More Hogwarts AU Headcanons

Jack doing magical photography!!! Keeping moving pics of his friends and family that he took with an old style film camera! (They’re mostly of Bitty but whatever that’s not something he’s aware of yet) And Magical History?? He’s the only student who actually finds Professor Binns’ class fun and exciting because wow??? So much magic in history?? It’s all so fascinating. People ask about his dad the professional Quidditch player a lot? But more and more often if they talk about Quidditch it’s for Jack himself and that makes him so happy.

Late night study sessions in the common room with Bitty bringing up pies from the kitchens and completely unnerving all of the house elves by making his own food?? For no reason?? And then just sharing it with people?? “Don’t y'all worry about a thing, I’ve got this. Here ya go sir, why don’t you keep ahold of this crumble? If I bring all of this back Jack’ll have my hide!” He also bribes his professors shamelessly to get into all of the coolest classes. Dumbledore wasn’t the only professor obsessed with sweets. But also potions!!! “It ain’t that hard, really, it’s just like baking! There’s a recipe with ingredients and instructions, all ya gotta do is put ‘em together!” At one point he has to tutor both Jack and Chowder because they’re both so anxious and impatient about the potion making process.

Rans and Holster are the modern day Fred and George, planning all of the best pranks and parties and never seen away from each other. Gryffindor beaters too, to match their positions as defensemen. Rans practically lives in the library, and has gotten way more out of the restricted section than anyone knows. Holster keeps his delicate coral reef in balance, probably by levitating him back to the dorm after he falls asleep studying. Holster is surprisingly good at herbology? Idk man it just feels right.

Chowder my dear sweet rain of sunshine is the nicest most gentlest boy in the whole school but when he becomes the Hufflepuff Keeper after Johnson graduates everyone is shocked and awed by his ferocity on the pitch. When the game ends he goes back to getting squeamish if anything resembling a Quaffle comes within meters of him. Many Hogwarts students are mystified by his braces and he totally asks Hagrid to put sharks in the lake. Divination is his favorite class fight me.

Knight is pretty much the epitome of a Ravenclaw come on. He loves learning but only about the things he’s interested in. He will rope you into an hour long debate on House Elf rights or Women in the Ministry (Hermione Granger is his role model, he wants to BE her) and every conversation leaves you tired but in a good way. Ravenclaw first years are routinely scarred by the level of nudity he exhibits in the common room, but quickly become used to it. Once someone tried to cut his hair as a prank but the next day it was back to its rank glory and the offender woke up to a Niffler in his bed.

Lardo is the Quidditch commentator. She has been told off several times for making remarks on the appearances of all of the players, specifically Knight, but it’s such a tradition now that no one can find a reason to really stop her, and she knows absolutely everything about Quidditch so she’s the best one qualified for the job. Exploding Snap champion, could hex you sideways. Knows all of the secrets. All of them.

Dex is muggleborn, slightly scared of magic and missing modern day technology, and is constantly tired of pureblooded Nursey’s questions about muggle stuff for Muggle Studies, which Dex doesn’t even know why Nursey took. “You mean you put lobsters in cages? That’s harsh, man.” “Dex why do you have that mobile you know none of that works here.” “Dex how do muggle boats even work if they’re not moved by magic or paddles, Dex LISTEN-” Plays wizard chess when stressed because at least this magic stays in one place.

Nursey himself can usually be found chilling by the lake. He astounds people with his capabilities with magical creatures, which are drawn to his laid back nature. He’s the first in his class to ride a hippogriff, and he gets all O’s in his OWL year without even trying which infuriates Dex even more than usual.

after trying to read more extensively in the dhr fandom and failing miserably back at reading all your lovely dhr fics :>

You are incredibly flattering to me, but there is such a wealth of material in the dramione fandom there has to be more you will love!  Have you tried any of these?

The Man with the Blue Beard by @carmineduvale
When Draco Abraxas, Viscount Malfoy, ran away from the scandal he had shaken London up with, he didn’t expect things would go down so fast. So far, there had been a flood, a weird bacchante girl, that little bookworm who spilt tea all over his fine shirt and, before he knew it, the words “I do” were making their way out of his mouth.

Hospital Stay by @unknown-authoress
Draco Malfoy is in the hospital. Hermione Granger is his Healer. Light fluffiness to make a bad day better.

Sucks for Smith by @raviesnake
“‘I, on the other hand, was paired with a young, fiery little number. I hope she enjoys long holidays in the Caribbean and naming children after constellations, because she’ll be doing both in less than six weeks,’ he said as he peered greedily down at the parchment." 

Presque Toujours Pur by @shayalonnie
Bellatrix’s torture of Hermione uncovers a long-kept secret. The young witch learns her true origins in a story that shows the beginning and end of the Wizarding wars as Hermione learns about her biological father and the blood magic he dabbled in that will control her future 

Erised by @elantil-arcacia
She was the girl who fought for house elf rights, the one that picked the ugliest cat in the shop because she didn’t want it to be unloved, and if it gave her a twisted enjoyment to be the salvation to her once tormentor, she didn’t show it. If saving him was saving herself as well, she didn’t show that either.

Out of Mind by galfoy (everything she writes is magic)
By all appearances, Hermione Granger runs a successful bookshop, lives a happy life, and wants for nothing. However, when a person from her past starts asking uncomfortable questions, Hermione realizes that things are never as they appear.

Through the Looking Glass by damnedscribblingwoman
Draco has problems. He’s a Death Eater, Malfoy Manor is in the hands of the Order of the Phoenix, and the war doesn’t seem to be dwindling down any time soon. Also, he’s invisible. And he knows just who to blame for that.

Goodbye To Yesterday by @dulce-de-leche-go
Memory charm fic. Hermione pays the price for helping the man she loves with his mission. It’s not easy to disappear in the eyes of the one you love. It’s much harder to have it happen by your own hand. M for language and mild sexual references.

Stark Raving Mad by @sableunstable
Take one Christmas party, a cocky, overzealous Gryffindor, a bushy-haired bookworm and an arrogant, possessive, platinum blond Slytherin, who may or may not be a jealous git. Now, mix them all together and what do you get? One hell of a headache! 

Grey by @savvyshka
One morning, Hermione woke up to a grey world. Literally. All the colours were gone, washed out for good.

Taming Granger by @jayciethings
If there was one thing Draco excelled at, it was plotting. Granger didn’t stand a chance.

The Bright Winter Stars by Captainraychill
For reasons unknown, Narcissa Malfoy stopped visiting her son in Azkaban. Hermione Granger can’t let him spend Christmas Eve alone.

Queen of Heaven by riptey 
Draco’s only friend in prison is a spider, and its venom causes hallucinations of Hermione. The only problem is that Dream Hermione keeps insisting she’s real.

Ghosts by Rizzle ( @andgladly)
Five years after the end of Voldemort and Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy is out of Azkaban and is a shell of his former self. Hermione Granger is doing her best, but she has demons of her own to deal with.

I've just this thing in my mind for the HP AU... Piper is just so popular and sassy and queen. Jason is the dork (we know it too well) sweet nerd who is handsome but really shy and plays quidditch annnnnd all the other things... And pipes being too shy to date him even of she likes him, so when they're together they are so shy and cute and -how can i say it- dorks. (Bonus: drew and silena know about her crush and follow every single moment of their relationship)

PIPER IS A TOTAL TERROR but in a good way yep. uses her natural talent in charms for some of the goofiest reasons (more often than not: to make someone laugh). she flirts w/ any and all players on the opposing quidditch teams to try and catch them off guard–tho she’s a good enough flier she doesn’t need that kind of charge anyway, pranks the everloving shit out of bullies (esp. those that pick on younger slytherins because fuck your house hate, she’s defending them the same way her sisters defended her) and she’s almost constantly scheming the Next Big Laugh with leo or percy or the stolls. because it’s why she’s popular, isn’t it? she’s pretty but hates people calling attention to it; they always paint her out as vapid, when she’s not. so she makes a name for herself as the cheer up, the joker, the friend you can count on to back you up. and maybe, secretly, she worries people won’t find her worth keeping around/won’t take her as seriously as they do drew and silena. so 

…and that’s probably why jason just? falls for her? yeah at first he’s kind of taken aback by how cute she is: he’s only a first year and considers it a harmless crush, they go on to be close friends and have feelings for other people now and again but he doesn’t realize til about fourth year, when he’s 15, that His Type has always included: dark and messy haired, deeply tanned, good at charms and a love of quidditch. how the hell did that happen? he’s easily flustered and she loves to get a rise out of him but she’s not offensive in the way she takes out all these jokes. he can’t not walk away smiling or laughing, because her smile/laugh are distracting in allllllll the right ways. and jason, being the Biggest Gryfindor possible is all about not letting bullies get their way. he admires how she stands up for others/for herself, even when she feels crummy and exhausted. he likes that she is always open to comforting people as best she can–even if out of her depth–because it’s what he does, too.

and piper at the same time can’t help but enjoy hanging out w/ this massive dork who could recite famous quidditch matches at length and never gets tired of talking about house elf rights and can/does spout all manner of random facts about wizarding history. she loves that he’s not a blood purity obsessed pureblood, because god knows there’s more than there should be of those in slytherin. she likes that he takes time out to help other students, and whenever she gets the chance to make him laugh or blush she takes it. and at first it’s like “aw, he’s cute” and then soon it’s “…oh…..oh, merlin, he’s cute

buT THEY’RE STUCK IN THIS LITTLE AWKWARD PHASE WHERE THEY’LL BE ACTING LIKE A COUPLE BY ACCIDENT an d all their friends are stuck watching this slow trainwreck from a distance. esp. percy/annabeth who are about as open to other ppls relationships as they are blIND to their own and percy corners piper and annabeth corners jason and both of them instantly go “so. that  crush of yours” to try and get them to admit it

and then. silena and drew. who are just torn between getting in the way of it because no, she’s a baby, she’s not dating. wHAT DO YOU MEAN SHE’S FIFTEEN. and also she can and will have anyone she likes, nobody is stopping her. in the end it’s silena who has to hold drew back from interfering while not-so-subtly giving jason “hurt her and i will hex you” looks over piper’s head if she thinks he’s about to mess up

thalia’s just. on the sidelines. embarrassing jason at every given opportunity (ft. annabeth and percy)

621. Being a part of Britain until the Revolution, American witches and wizards were educated at Hogwarts. Most of the founding fathers, being upper class and able to afford a proper education, were at Hogwarts, with Jefferson, Franklin, and Adams being sorted into Ravenclaw. Controversially, Alexander Hamilton was placed into Slytherin along with Benedict Arnold. George Washington, naturally, was a Gryffindor while John Jay was a Hufflepuff and an early proponant of house-elf rights.

for anyone who still cares about hamilton. or harry potter.

(I found this in my email drafts; CLEARLY I meant to post it months ago and got distracted, but I feel the world should not be denied what happens when @littledust​ and I get going)

Fahye
people have STRONG FEELINGS

K Littledust
are they as strong as tumblr’s feelings about Hamilton’s sorting
