Lily could never remember what she needed to do, so her Aunt Hermione gave a personalized remembrall so different types of tasks would be different colors. It was incredibly useful to her, and it made her godfather, Neville Longbottom laugh.
Ron Weasley as a stay-at-home dad gives me so many damn feels.
Right around the time Hermione gets pregnant with Rose he’s come to the conclusion that while being an Auror is amazing, it’s really not for him. And by the time their daughter is born he has already announced his plans to leave the Department of Magical Law Enforcement and the Ministry as a whole.
They spend her maternity leave together, in utter awe of this precious little girl they’ve created, and when Hermione is preparing to return to work it only seems natural for Ron to stay home with their daughter. His mum is getting on in years, after all, and all his siblings have their hands full with their own lives.
The Prophet made it sound like a great sacrifice on his part, but really he couldn’t be happier. He felt in his element as a father and reveled in sharing with Hermione each tiny milestone.
Two years later Hugo came along and Ron quickly learned how to multitask with children. Rose was very much the Big Sister and it was absolutely adorable.
Once both children were old enough Ron would take them to WWW with him as he worked alongside his brother. George thought it was brilliant, that he had two free-of-charge employees who were constantly showing off merchandise to their target audience.
Although on the rare occasion when one (or both) of the little Weasleys had a melt down things turned a bit messy. Angelina offered to watch them whenever Hermione had her hands full with Ministry Business or when the store had a new product being launched. Something Ron was forever grateful for.
Next Gen Stories I need someone to write so that I can read them and cry
Scorpius winning over McGonagall’s affection by offering her lemon drops the first time he runs into her at Honeydukes by accident in his third year.
McGonagall teaching everyone to dance for the 25th anniversary ball of the war and scanning the crowd for someone to demonstrate with her. Her eyes almost immediately fall on Hugo Weasley and she picks him without a second hesitation.
Rose being so shy that she blushes whenever she talks no matter who it’s with and Scorpius always feeling like his heart is dropping into his stomach because whenever he talks to her her face just burns up and he thinks it’s absolutely adorable.
Roxanne and Fred always competing to see who could sell the most from the store.
Fred always feeling like he has to be funny like the person he was named after.
Luna and Harry hanging out together by themselves as old friends and just being awesome
Albus reading the Quibbler and always discussing it with Luna whenever she comes to visit.
Rose and Scorpius sitting on the windowsill in the Ravenclaw tower together while everyone else watches them being totally oblivious to how the other one feels. Rose sitting with her back to one wall and her knees while Scorpius sits with his back against the window and his legs under Roses with his hands sprawled over her legs while she reads quietly to him.
Teddy and Victoire being in separate houses and always having to sneak out after hours to see each other because they are best friends.
Teddy and Victoire finally becoming a couple after Teddy spontaneously shows up at Kings cross station to say goodbye to Victoire and kisses her through the window of the train just as it’s leaving.
Rose being the mastermind behind all the pranks.
Dominique always blowing things up for fun in class and acting like it was Danny Finnigan so that he would serve detention after to school. Then she would purposefully do something else to get detention too and they’s spend hours together washing old chalkboards.
James sending home a Hogwarts toilet seat to Lily in his third year because he knew it would cheer her up.
You can delete this part, but I have this idea in my head of Rose and McGonagall having this great relationship, because, you know, she’s Hermione’s daughter, but she has Ron’s sense of humour and is just hilarious, something I think McGonagall always loved about Ron, much like the Twins. So I pretty much think Rose and McGonagall bond over their love of disapproving sass.
….what if Sirius actually kept a photo album(or seven thousands) of him and the Marauders and everyone else he knew back when he was still a student at Hogwarts? And one day, when Harry was taking his kids to visit the house of one of the bravest man he ever knew (sorry Snape), 10-year-old James and 8-year-old Albus found those albums stashed somewhere in an empty room in Grimmauld Place when they were wandering around the house. That was how they (and Lily too, in the end), learned about how great their grandparents were, and the lives they and their friends had before they died to give them all a better future.
From the pictures, they learned how James Potter Sr would do the most idiotic things to impress then Lily Evans (“I can’t believe Granddad actually jumped off the Astronomy Tower and mounted his broom just metres before he crashed!” James Sirius would exclaimed in adoration.). They also learned that their father’s Godfather was probably the coolest person they’d ever seen (“And the most handsome,” Lily Luna would add, earning a look from her brothers, to which she added, “What? I’m 9, but it doesn’t mean that I’m blind. He was fit.”). And when they saw the pictures of Remus trying to separate both heavily-drunk James Sr and Sirius from clawing each other’s eyes (“Man, I wonder what it was all about,” Albus said as he eyed the picture closely, trying to imagine how those people were.), they started to invited their honorary-older brother Teddy Lupin to join them to see the pictures. Because let’s face it, Teddy had a right to those pictures more than they did, seeing that it was his father there in most of the pictures.
They learned a lot of things about the Marauders and his friends. They knew now that James Sr had a crooked-smile that he inherited to Albus, that Sirius loved to tilt his chair to stand on its two back-feet and threw his head back in a laugh, that Remus smiled a lot more than what was appropriate when he was watching his friends fight over something that was no doubt trivial. But there were also some people they didn’t know though. Like that pretty raven-haired girl who Sirius loved to carry on a piggy-back ride all over the Gryffindor Common Room on a lot of the pictures. Or the cute blonde who blushed whenever she saw Remus, even when she pretended she was listening to Lily Evans, who was talking while waving her hands dramatically. Or even the tall guy kissing a nice-looking woman who looked a lot like their Professor Longbottom, with both James Sr and Sirius photo-bombing in the background. They also saw many pictures of a short, mousy-blonde man, who looked at his three friends in adoration. Nevertheless, they didn’t mind the fact that there were some people that they didn’t know. The truth was, the Potter kids and Teddy Lupin learned more about the Marauders from their pictures instead of the stories they often heard.
They never told Harry though. Because they thought it was Harry who stored those pictures away, thinking that it must be too painful for Harry to see it. They never said anything about it, unaware that they probably knew more about their grandparents and their friends more than their own father. So, one day when James Sirius was seventeen, Harry was lecturing his oldest son that he shouldn’t jump from the Astronomy Tower just to impress Neville’s daughter because that was just plain crazy, son, and you can’t be that stupid. Rolling his eyes because he was convinced his father was being ridiculous, oblivious and irritated James Sirius waved his hand dismissively and said, “Yeah right, as if Granddad James hadn’t done it before. I saw the pictures, Dad. You can’t blame me if I followed his example.”
He expected his father to yell at him for his insolence. Instead, Harry froze, those green eyes that were identical like his brother’s and grandmother’s were wide as saucers as he stammered, “W-what pictures, James?”
And that was when James Sirius and his siblings realised that for all his life, Harry was way more clueless than they were about his parents. And they couldn’t help but to feel sorry because they felt like they’d stolen something privately belonged to Harry. So they showed him the pictures, hugged him when he cried, and laughed along with him when he did.
Later, Ginny would tell her brother and Hermione how she had never seen her husband so happy.
Lily Potter sat on her bed with a piece of folded up parchmentin front of her. She had finally nicked the map from her where her brother,James, kept it hidden. Lily had spent an entire summer looking and she’d almostgiven up until she realized the Halloween feast tonight would keep everyonebusy for a few hours. As much as she hadn’t wanted to skip the feast, shecouldn’t pass up the opportunity to nick the map. It was a good thing too.James, probably less concerned than usual about the map’s safety now that hewas busy snogging his new girlfriend all the time. Either that, or he’d rushedoff to stuff his face at the Halloween feast and not bothered to hide itproperly. Lily snickered, his knickers drawer, really?
She’d known about the map, of course, since James firstnicked it from their Dad’s office during his first Christmas break home fromHogwarts. They had overheard their Uncle George talking to Dad about it,
although Lily had a sneaking suspicion that maybe Uncle George had wanted them to learn about it because
she was quite sure his eyes had flickered towards their hiding spot on the
stairs. James was the only one at Hogwarts then, so she hadn’t minded much when
he’d been the one to find it. It wasn’t of any use to her. Now, though, she
felt she deserved a chance to pull some pranks of her own without the worry of
being caught. Not to mention the secret passage ways to Hogsmeade would be
great to have access to.
Now, if only she could remember how James had accessed it. He’d
certainly bragged about figuring it out enough. Lily swore at herself for
deciding to ignore his bragging, she could only remember how to close the map. That
wasn’t helpful at the moment though. She hesitated, holding her wand above the
old parchment, then tried the first thing that came to mind.
“Open,” Nothing. Lily mentally rolled her eyes at herself, that
had been a stupid guess. Who in their right mind would make it that easy to get
“Please show me Hogwarts?” Again, nothing.
“I have things to manage?” That was a stupid variation on
how to close the map, but Lily didn’t know what else to do but try anything
that popped into her head. She was not going to give this back to James after
finally getting ahold of it.
Thirty minutes later Lily was running out of ways to try and
open the map. What was the point of going to the trouble of getting the map if
she couldn’t use it? She was mindlessly tapping her wand on the parchment out
“Oh come on, I just want to pull a few pranks without
To her surprise words
started to form on the page.
Mr. Moony offers his
compliments to whoever is wanting to create some mischief, but must sadly
inform them that unless you swear we can’t share.
Mr. Wormtail solemnly
agrees, it’s such a shame they won’t be able to manage.
Mr. Padfoot would like
to point out that even if they were up to no good, they couldn’t out-prank the
Marauders. We are the Kings at this school.
Mr. Prongs agrees and
wonders who might possibly be trying to swear they are up to no good?
Lily was stunned, this was the oddest map ever. The words
started to fade and she quickly tapped the map again, deciding to just go with
“Lily, my name is Lily.”
The writing seemed to almost hesitate, then started up again
as her name faded away.
Mr. Moony is wondering
why Lily would be pulling a prank?
Mr. Wormtail thinks
Mr. Prongs is sharing things he aught not to be
Mr. Padfoot thinks Mr.
Prongs is trying to impress Miss Prongs and deserves a detention cleaning
bedpans in the Hospital Wing, the prat.
Mr. Prongs thinks Mr.
Padfoot is a git and is sure Lily could pull a prank if she was serious.
Mr. Padfoot thinks
there’s a strong possibility that Miss Prongs is, in fact, not serious.
Mr. Moony would like
to share his disapproval in Mr. Padfoot’s poor taste in jokes.
Now she was really confused. She felt like she was being
discussed by people–not even people, but a map!– as if she weren’t in the room!
Lily tried not to feel insulted, she could pull a prank better than almost anyone.
Kings? She may as well call herself Queen then. After all, everyone knows who
really runs things in a kingdom. She’d learned from James, after all, and
watched out all the ways he got caught. Lily almost never got caught, not to
mention that she’d perfected the art of talking her way out of trouble. And if
she could just figure out how to open this map, there would be no more
obstacles to trying to out-do James.
“I pull amazing pranks!” she said indignantly while tapping
the map again, before reminding herself she was getting huffy with a map.
Mr. Padfoot is sure
Miss Prongs can pull pranks now since apparently Mr. Prongs wants to assist her
with our secrets.
Mr. Moony wonders if
Miss Prongs should focus on her homework instead?
Mr. Wormtail wonders
if Mr. Prongs is thinking with his head?
Mr. Prongs would like
to inform everyone he has no idea what they are talking about.
Mr. Padfoot would like
to kindly ask his best mate to come off it, and thinks Mr. Prongs is trying to
hard to win Miss Prongs over.
Miss Prongs? Win her over? What the actual hell was going
on? Lily was starting to think maybe the magic on the map was starting to wear
off. After all, it had been her dad’s while he was at school, and her Uncle’s
before that. And it sounded like these people had made the map, and who knows how
long ago that was. She looked down to see three different handwritings that all
seemed very busy picking on the one called Mr. Prongs while continuously
referring to her as Miss Prongs, which seemed to be a running joke. She signed,
if he was being singled out then she guessed she should probably use that to
her advantage. Boys were always so obvious.
“Mr. Prongs, I, Lily, request assistance opening the map,”
she made herself sound as confident as possible. The written argument between
the four of them stopped mid scroll and faded.
Mr. Padfoot wants Mr.
Prongs to know he’s going to break his broomstick the next time he sees him.
Mr. Prongs would like
Lily to know she can always ask him for help.
Mr. Moony would like
to inform Mr. Prongs that he’s pathetic.
Mr. Wormtail agrees
that Mr. Prongs is…up to no good.
Mr. Padfoot thinks Mr.
Wormtail should shut his fat mouth
Lily grinned, “I swear I am!” only the handwriting from Mr.
Prongs appeared after that.
Do you solemnly swear?
“I solemnly swear! I solemnly swear I’m up to no good!” Lily
almost yelled, laughing triumphantly as the map blossomed over the pages like
watercolor with hundreds of labels in the Great Hall. It was obvious why James was
so keen to keep this nearby.
“Bloody hell, this is fantastic!” She wanted to jump up and
down like a five year old at Christmas. Once she had calmed herself down she
watched the map until the giant mass of students in the Great Hall began to
disperse towards the four Common Rooms.
Reluctantly tapped the paper and whispered “Mischief
Of course she would be sharing this with her friends
tomorrow, but for tonight she just wanted to keep the victory to herself. There
was something about the map that she felt almost drawn to. It was silly, she
thought, to be affectionate towards a map, but here she was, grinning like she
just made a new friend. Climbing into her bed, she drew her wand one last time
for the night, and tapped the map.
“Thanks Mr. Prongs, you’re the best.”
Lily felt a bit stupid, but she did owe him. Whoever he was.
However this charm worked, the person who cast it trusted her for some reason.
She wondered vaguely why as tucked the map away where she was sure her brother
wouldn’t look. Not that it mattered much, she thought. As far as she knew,
there was no way for him to get up to the girls’ dormitories. She smiled into
her pillow, all the while missing the last message scrawled across the paper,
fading into nothing.
