My favorite HP headcanon is asexual Charlie Weasley. All the men in his family talking about girls and ginny talking about boys with hermione and Charlie is just like "guys... DRAGONS"

“This one’s name is Arrow, this one is Ace, this one is Spade, this one is Comrade, and this one is -”

“Aro, Ace, Spade, and Comrade? Trying to tell us something, Charlie?”

“- and this one is FIREBOMB. All caps, no kidding. Don’t get too close to her - you’ll lose your hair.” Charlie positively glowed with pride looking at the weyr of dragonlings like a proud father.

“So who are you interested in, Charlie, mate? We haven’t heard you talking about anyone you’ve dated or are dating.”

“Dragons.”

“I like dragons, too, mate, but I’ve also got a wife.”

“Dragons.”

“I think that might be illegal, yannow.”

Charlie grabbed his friend’s shoulder and looked him straight in the eyes. “Draaaagoooons.”

“Charlie, when are you going to settle down and marry,  hm?”

“Mum, I don’t have time for that. I have dragons to watch over.”

“I’m sure there’s some witch or wizard out there who will understand your ridiculous choice of job.”

“You can just say wix, mum. And I don’t need someone who will understand. I have dragons.”

Asexual + Hogwarts Houses Phone Backgrounds


Asexual: Someone who does not experience sexual attraction. Unlike celibacy, which people choose, asexuality is an intrinsic part of who someone is. There is considerable diversity among the asexual community; each asexual person experiences things like relationships, attraction, and arousal somewhat differently. Asexuality does not make anyone’s life any worse or any better, they just face a different set of challenges than most sexual people. Asexuality is distinct from celibacy or sexual abstinence, which are behaviors, while asexuality is generally considered to be a sexual orientation. Some asexuals do participate in sex, for a variety of reasons.

Shoutout to the houses with ADHD

Here’s to the Gryffindors who can’t remember times, places, and dates, who feel a constant urge to just go, who feel like their nerves are electrical wires, who keep a rubber band around their wrist to snap when they aren’t focused, who don’t understand why it can’t just stop, who constantly say they need to throw something away or go to the bathroom or blow their nose because they need to move, who are accused of being lazy but in truth they just couldn’t remember or figure it out, who constantly feel the dense mixture of burning frustration, lukewarm regret and cold disappointment in their gut, who are fighting it as best they can.

Here’s to the Hufflepuffs who can’t sit through an entire movie, who have to actively tap their fingers to remember anything, who start making something for a friend but then get up and forget about it because they couldn’t concentrate, who are worried that whenever they spend long amounts of times with the people they love, they’re constant need to move will become annoying, who always feel the claws of self-hatred choking them, whose thoughts flit so quickly they say it’s more like a crash at an intersection than a train, who make jokes about their daydreamer tendencies that actually hurt, who just need someone to support and help and understand.

Here’s to the Ravenclaws who study for hours upon hours but can only remember what they crammed seconds before the tests, who start a project but never get around to finishing it, who know they’re smart but can’t help but doubt it because “ then why are their grades so low?”, who should have much higher marks but can’t remember more than 1/3 of the material, who feel humiliation and mortification and hopelessness whenever they look at their work, who find something new they’re excited to learn about, but forget to or can’t concentrate, who think that it’s somehow their fault, who are constantly looking for proof of their brain.

Here’s to the Slytherins who experiment with so many techniques for focusing that they lost count, who have to read one instruction five times before they get it, who fear that they’re a lost cause with no hope, who try working out while the study because maybe if they try to combine the problems, it’ll make a solution, who don’t understand how their classmates can just concentrate, who feel like they’ll never accomplish their goals or make anything out of themselves, who want to know more about their favorite subject, but also want to move and run and feel, who worry that failure is their only path, who can’t imagine a life where they accomplish their goals but feel like its the only possibility, who need help.

All of you are smart, talented, and so valuable, never forget that. You are valid, it isn’t your fault, just get help. I love and am here for you.

In honour of @accio-shitpost I bring you: the houses as things MY dad has done.

Gryffindor: run over his phone with his bicycle while trying to multitask.

Hufflepuff: kisses my hair when I fall asleep against his shoulder in the backseat of the car on family trips even though I’m nineteen years old. Is only in the backseat because my sister gets carsick so he gives her the front.

Ravenclaw: tried to help me with my math homework. Somehow ended up on a lecture about different dolphin types and also philosophy.

Slytherin: taught us important sporting safety procedures with “listen carefully, because this is how I lost my first set of kids…”

After the Second Wizarding War, the Slytherins devoted their ambition to restoring the honor of their house. Their reputations had been tarnished by Voldemort, and they knew better than anyone that the acts of one person do not define a group as a whole. They may not have been as nice as the Hufflepuffs or as wise as Ravenclaws, but when a Slytherin puts their mind to something, it happens.

Sometimes I forget that Ginny and Hermione genuinely were good friends but then sometimes I remember and get really overwhelmed with happiness.

Like lil Ginny admitting to Hermione - one of Harry’s best friends - that she has this huge crush on Harry but he doesn’t even know she exists. And Hermione gives her badass advice to go out there and live her life and stop waiting for some boy to notice her.

Hermione and Ginny sharing Ginny’s room in the Burrow getting up to who knows what and staying up who knows how late just talking about their life.

Hermione going to Ginny to just be like “Merlin, you’re not gonna believe what just happened to me” and telling her all about Viktor Krum asking her to the Yule Ball.

Hermione being there to comfort Ginny after the Dementors’ brought up memories of her possession by Tom Riddle and after Fred died.

Ginny probably didn’t tell many details about her possession to anybody but Hermione.

Doing fun things together like hanging out with Tonks and getting to know her and trying to make ridiculous appearance requests for Tonks to attempt.

Neither of these two seemed to be particularly close to other’s in their House/year, so when they were in the Gryffindor tower, they were probably in each other’s dorm room’s together to just hang out, even if they didn’t talk.

Rowling didn’t really seem to prioritize or care all too much about showing close (and positive) female friendships, and I think that’s a real shame because there’s a lot of beautiful possibilities and Ginny and Hermione are just one of many.
