supergirl headcanon that at some point in the future after alex and maggie get married and when they decide to try and have a kid, they choose not to tell anyone until they know it worked bc knowing their friends (family, really), those weirdos will be be way more excited than even they are
so ya know they go to their doctor, pick a donor etc etc (alex is gonna be the one having the lil babe) and some time later (i’m not a fertility expert, i dont know how long these things take), there’s a super squad game night at kara’s place and everyone’s there (winn, james, mon el [i’m assuming he stays], lena, j’onn, m’gann, alex and maggie) and kara comes home a little late after having to deal with a mix up of stories w snapper and kinda discards her stuff and looks a little fondly at her fam who are all goofing around by the tv but then something is weird abt like, the background noise in her super hearing and she focuses and something just isn’t right
and alex notices the expression on her face as kara comes a little closer trying to figure out what it is and says “hey kara, you okay?” and kara’s like “i dunno … i thought i heard … i mean, i do hear … but that’s … there’s only eight people here - i must just be rlly tired or something, don’t worry.” and winn teases her about it a little and james jokes “supergirl’s having an off day, huh?” but alex suddenly realises what it could be and as kara moves to sit beside lena, alex grabs her arm and goes “wait, kara, what did you hear?” and kara sees the look on her face and says very slowly “what do you think i heard?” and alex is like “you tell me first” and kara says “you tell me first” and winn just stares at them with raised eyebrows and goes “you both maybe wanna tell the rest of us what’s going on?” and kara’s eyes flicker between maggie and alex before she says, still super slowly bc she doesn’t know if she and alex are on the same page “there’s only eight people in this room … but -” and alex finishes for her going “but kara hears nine heartbeats.” and nobody picks up on anything for a second, like j’onn and m’gann and mon el try focusing their hearing and the others just looks around sorta confused and then suddenly maggie chokes on her beer and her gaze snaps over to alex and goes “wait a second - does that mean …?” and alex breaks into the biggest grin and kara lets out the hugest shriek and goes “oh my god you’re pregnant!” and chaos just erupts in the apartment
*Three masked Death Eaters step into the light, one moves towards James*
Death Eater: *sing song voice* James, James, James… Fancy seeing you here.
James: *recognition dawns* … Mulciber, you fucking piece of-
Mulciber: Tsk… insults certainly won’t save your life Potter. *chuckles* Or your wife… so why don’t we keep things civil? *waves his wand lazily to the side*
James: *frantic* Lils…. Lily!
Lily: *continues to stare blankly ahead*
Mulciber: *grins* She can’t hear you Potter… She’s nothing but a puppet. *grin broadens* A pretty little mudblood puppet… and I can make her do whatever I like just by pulling a few strings.
James: *struggles to stay composed* W-why… what do you want?
James: *snarls* Fucking disgusting. H-he wanted me to turn… be his inside man… said I’d be the last person anyone would suspect…*winces* and he was going to use Lily to ensure it.
James: *laughs bitterly* What kind of classical villainy bullshit… It was like a cheesy scene from one of those movies Lily had us watch. *quiets, his eyes glazed* Why is it so terrifying when you’re actually in it?
Sirius: *stares, at a loss*
James: Her face was blank, it wasn’t her.
James: It was horrible.
Sirius: *quietly* If Lily was hit with the Imperius curse…
James: That’s what Albus is checking… *suddenly laughs, trembling* God Pads… Lily is a lot more than the “Dark Lord” bargained for.
James: She broke free of the curse and got us both out of there quicker than he could blink…
James: *stares ahead, his expression awed* She annihilated it.
James: She’s remarkable… The amount of control you have to have in order to break an unforgivable… *shakes head* I don’t know…
Of course your fifth year would start off like this. You stormed out of the cabin, furious. You knew you were being replaced by (your friend’s name’s) boyfriend, but never thought she would say it to your face.
You stormed off to the only person you could think of: your neighbor, James. You swung the door open and walked inside the cabin. You opened your mouth but James stuck his fingers to his lips, motioning for you to be quiet. You looked across from him to see a sleeping boy taking up a whole seat. James and his two other friends were all sitting across from him, cramped as it may be.
You turned back to James. “Can I stay in this cabin. (Your friend’s name) is being a,” you paused, pursing you lips, “name I don’t want to say.” “It’s a little packed in here,” James whispered back, glancing at the sleeping boy. “I don’t care. I’ll sit on the floor if I have to.”
“That won’t be necessary,” the sleeping boy said, startling you. He sat up and rubbed his sunken eyes. “I will. It’s not an issue. I just need to be in here.” The boy sat up and patted the seat beside him for you to sit down.
James had a moment of realization. “Oh!” he exclaimed. “This is (Y/N), she’s my neighbor. (Y/N), this is Sirius,” he motioned to a boy with long black hair, “Peter,” he motioned to a blonde boy who was a bit bigger than the others and seemed very friendly, “and Remus.” Remus was the sleeping boy. He had shaggy, dirty blonde hair and a scar running up his face. He was very good looking, you had to admit.
“Since we haven’t met before, I’d assume you aren’t a sixth year?” Remus asked. “No, I’m a fifth year. I’m in (your house name). I’m assuming you’re all Gryffindors?” you asked. “And bloody proud of it,” said Sirius.
Halfway through the train ride, Remus stood. “My turn to patrol, prefect duties.” The boy walked out and you could feel a slight pull at your heart. You ignored it.
When the train arrived at the station, you slowly got out. You walked close to James. “I don’t know what I’m going to do this year. All my friends are enthralled with their significant others.” “Well, we can’t help you at meals or such, but you can hang out with us whenever you need to.” “Thanks, James, you’re a champ.”
You, James, Sirius, and Peter all climb onto the carriage. As you climb on, someone comes running up to you. Remus. “Almost bloody missed it,” Remus complained, squeezing beside you. “Second year in a row, mate,” Sirius smirked.
The five of you talked up until you made it to the Great Hall. You pursed your lips and headed to your table, away from the boys. Your house got a lot of first years, and you showed a slight smile at the bright faces of the little kids. “(Y/N), will you show the first years to our dorm?” Marcus, one of the seventh year Prefects asked kindly. “Yeah, of course.” You stood up. “Hey, first years. Follow me.” You smiled at them as they gathered around you.
Once you were out of the Great Hall, you turned around to talk to them. “My name’s (Y/N), and I’m a prefect. That means I can answer your questions and show you where places are, like your dorm. That’s where we’re heading now,” you said, all while walking backwards.
“Are we going to be staying all together, or are the rooms separated by year,” a little girl asked, presumably muggle born. “They rooms are separated by year and gender, so there’ll be about ten of you in a dorm, I’d say. My year is very small, so I only have about-”
You were cut off by a body colliding into yours. The first years all laughed as the person you ran into supported your fallen body. You were helped up and turned around to see Remus, who was being laughed at by his group of first years. “Do all of the prefects walk backwards?” one of Remus’s first years asked. “Only the good ones,” Remus replied.
You smiled at Remus and quickly ducked away. “Here we are, our common room.”
You explained to the first years the trick to get in, and answered any questions they had. “Alright, here we are. Girls, follow me, boys, follow him,” you said, pointing to your prefect counterpart across the room.
You led the girls to the dorm. “Lights out at 9,” you warned. “Goodnight, girls.” You shut the door and made your way up to your own dorm.
You made your bed and settled in with a book you brought from home. This year might not be so bad after all.
It was Halloween when they told you about the map. They planned to pull a prank that you knew wouldn’t work. “And why won’t it work?” Sirius asked with a smirk. “Because you’ll get caught,” you said, exasperated. Peter laughed, watching his friends reactions as well as yours. “That’s where you’re wrong, (Y/N), show her Remus,” James said.
James handed Remus a piece of parchment and went off. You followed him after shooting a glance back at the three boys. Peter was smiling profusely, James was smirking, and Sirius wiggled his eyebrows at you. You blushed and turned around, following Remus.
He led you to a corridor that ended with a wall. “I don’t get it.” “You’ll see.” Remus opened the parchment. “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.” Ink traced the paper, drawing out what appeared to be a map. He found the right wall and moved a banner, revealing an opened. You pulled it open and climbed inside.
“Where does this lead to?” you asked, awestruck. “This one just leads outside,” Remus said. “So there are others?” you asked. Remus nodded, barely visible in the dim lighting. “Yes.”
Suddenly, Remus leaning towards you, barely brushing his lips against yours. He pulled back and stepped away. “Wow, that was unnecessary, I think we should leave,” Remus said quickly, his words jumbling together. You held onto him and gently kissed his cheek. “Hey, it’s okay. I wasn’t just going to say it, but I like you, Remus.” He stopped, turning back abruptly. “I like you, too. It’s just, that was a little much, I’m sorry. I don’t want to go that fast. How about I get you a Butterbeer at Hogsmeade next trip?”
okay but james and sirius literally lived together (outside of hogwarts ofc) in the potters’ house while they were sixteen and. there are just some things i need to know
did they stay up late at night talking on james’s bed, lying on their stomachs with their pillows bunched in their arms? did they have midnight runs down to the kitchen when they were hungry, resulting in mr. and mrs. potter finding them baking at 2 am? did sirius turn into padfoot and lie with his head on james’s stomach while james read before going to sleep? did they play quidditch together in the backyard until mrs. potter was literally threatening to hex them if they didnt get their arses inside for lunch right this very moment? did they ever go to the woods near james’s house and turn into padfoot and prongs and chase each other around for hours, returning home with twigs in their hair and breathless? did they have 2 sinks in the bathroom, stand next to each other and talk while they brushed up, laughing through mouths full of toothpaste? did they take turns sending letters to remus and lily with james’s owl? did sirius borrow james’s books and annotate them as he read, leaving little notes for james to see when he reread them? these are the kind of questions i need answers to @ jk rowling
