i was very happy when james did this a

Teddy Remus Lupin

Teddy’s birth as seen by Lily, James and a very jealous Sirius

Sirius: I don’t like babies.

Lily: You almost died of happiness when you first held Harry. You even cried.

Sirius: *hissing* I did no such thing because I don’t like babies.

James: *grinning* Maybe it’s just this one baby Pads.

Sirius: Shut it, Prongs.

Lily: Another war baby, I hope his fate will be different.

James: It will be because this time the war will end, Lils.

Sirius: Tell me when it’s over.

James: You had begged to be there when Evans gave birth?

Sirius: I was young and stupid.

Lily: Aren’t you being a little bit too dramatic? You should be happy. It’s Remus for heaven’s sake.

Sirius: *sarcastically* I’m so happy that the love of my life is having a baby from my cousin’s daughter.

Lily: When you say it like that..

Sirius: *impatiently* Well, that’s how it is.

James: *excited* He is here and he looks like a handsome potato.

Lily: Oh this is weird.

Sirius: What is weird?

James: Let’s just say all those cousin marriages took it’s toll on your gene pool Pads.

Sirius: What the fuck are you talking about?

Lily: *quietly* He looks like you.

Sirius: You have got to be fucking kidding me.

James: Um, yeah, no.

Lily: Can I ask something? How will they know if he’s a werewolf or not?

Sirius: Full moon, there’s no other way to know. *pauses, stares at the baby* He really looks like me.

James: I think there’s another way.

Sirius: No, there i–

Lily: His hair is becoming ginger?

Sirius: *relieved* IS HE A METAMORPHMAGUS?

James: Apparently.

Sirius: It’s impossible to dislike him and I’m trying really hard.

Lily: Teddy.

Sirius: What?

Lily: His name is Teddy Remus.

James: *laughing* Oh, now that’s cheating. Harry James, Teddy Remus I mean, come on Moony.

Sirius: He always thought he couldn’t ever have a child because he wasn’t entitled to it being the monster he is. I tried to tell him maybe thousand times, look at his face.

Lily: You like Teddy, don’t you?

Sirius: Of course I like him, I love him even. Look at how Moony’s face lit up, I haven’t seen his eyes glow like that in years.

James: Now, he has a reason to survive.

Lily: Did Remus just apparate from the side of his new born baby and wife?

James: He did, where is he Pads?

Sirius: He’s at the Weasley cottage where Harry’s hiding.

James: He is scaring the living shit out of them.

Lily: *smiling* Ah, I missed excited Remus.

Remus hugs Harry.

James: *longingly* Hug him for us, too, Moony.

“You’ll be godfather?” he said as he released Harry. 

Lily: *starts crying* Merlin, Remus must you make me cry? 

James: *his hands in his hair* My son is the godfather of my best friend’s boy. I never knew I wanted this until this moment.

Sirius: *sadly* He will be a better godfather than I ever was.

James: Pads. we chose you. Me and Evans. We chose you because we knew you were perfect for it and you did everything you could.

Sirius: Yeah, I got myself locked up in Azkaban.

Lily: No one is blaming you for that, not us, not Harry.

James: Harry loved you even though you had two years together, you were his Paddy and he was your fawn. I wouldn’t have even dreamed of making another person the godfather of my first child.

Lily: *staring into distance* We were going to have enough kids for each one of you to become godfathers but you, you were the obvious first choice. You are James’ brother, please stop feeling guilty about this. 

James: *trying to cheer Sirius up* Let’s enjoy this moment mate, imagine how punk rock this kid would be.

Sirius: *softly smiling as he’s staring at his hands* Very.

Lily: Come on let’s just watch Remus before the dark times start again.

Sirius: Yeah, you are right. To Teddy Lupin then.

James & Lily: To Teddy Lupin.

Timothée Chalamet


Timothée Chalamet is a young man going places. Quite literally, when he calls us on his way from the airport where he’s just landed in Toronto for a premiere of a film you just might have heard of, Call Me By Your Name. The 21-year-old New Yorker is, at this point, still in the early stages for promotion of Luca Guadagnino’s poignant story of gay love in 80s Italy. It took the Sundance Film Festival by storm earlier this year – word of mouth was on an almost unheard of level. And now, at last, it’s finally about to be unleashed to the world at large.

And Timothée is a young man who’s ready. If he can calm down that is.

“I’m buzzing!” he exclaims from the car he’s sharing with his mother and her best friend. “This is such a dream come true to be able to come to this festival with a movie like this.”

Born and raised in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen, Timothée studied at LaGuardia – a performing arts school. He appeared in commercials and horror shorts before roles Off-Broadway and in television series such as Homeland steered his path somewhat.

We’re peach-deep in conversation when suddenly he shouts out, “How are you doing?! I didn’t even ask you! How are you doing?” He did ask, and we’re well, thank you.

Aside from being polite, he talks long, fast and intently, yet often loops back and corrects himself on using an incorrect term, or where he thinks he might sound ungrateful or similar. ‘First world problems’ is something he often repeats, although we’re all guilty of that. Somewhat endearingly – as though it’s possible he could be more endearing – he says ‘shoot’ instead of swearing.

Timothée’s journey to Crema – and critical acclaim – has taken a little longer than expected. Take a deep breath, we’re going in…

“It’s been a three and a half year, four year process,” he recalls. “Initially Peter Spears was the producer that had the rights to the book, he’s had them since the rights were offered, and they were putting together versions for a while. And by versions I just mean I think they had ideas of people they wanted to direct it, and ideas of people they wanted to play Elio and Oliver, but it never quite came together.

“And when James Ivory and Luca Guadagnino got involved, then it really started to pick up steam. So I met with James Ivory, it would have been September of my freshman year in college, so literally like four years ago now, almost to the day cos it would’ve been September/October, around there, and kind of got the sign-off from James. And then had lunch with Luca, and got the sign off from him, and then I was loosely attached for three years.

“But y’know,” he chuckles, “I learned very quickly, in show business, you can be a part of a project, where the majority of the project that you’re a part of never comes to fruition because it is so hard. Any movie that gets made, any piece of art that gets made is a miracle in and of itself. So I’m happy we got it done when we did, and to do it with Armie Hammer was an absolute dream. That was one of my favourite actors before I worked with him, and the opinion didn’t change at all, it only was bettered, having worked with him. And to work with Luca Guadagnino was an absolute dream because I Am Love and A Bigger Splash, which I hadn’t seen when I initially met with him, but a year into knowing him, got to see, they were such masterclasses in film-making.

“He’s a master of sensuality, a master filmmaker, and it’s so thrilling to work with that from an actor perspective. I’d never really been around someone before Luca that I felt lived and breathed film-making, it oozes from his body, it oozes from his pores, in addition to this sensuality that finds its way into every frame of the movie by way of his touch.” He takes a breath. “Shoot, I rambled for a little bit.”

We ask how a project like this, with ‘sensitive’ content, gets pitched to actors. Timothée laughs.

“I really love that, because I’m not even really sure they pitched it, in so much as I pitched myself! It’s so rare to find roles as a young actor, and I’m a broken record here, of myself and of every other young actor that’s said this, but it’s a great problem, I mean it’s a non-problem when you think about it, what a first-world problem to have, but there aren’t these complex meaty roles in abundance, they tend to be more like surface level characters, not even by way of the stories, but just by way of whatever the tone of the piece is. So, just to be in front of Luca’s camera almost, was to get to toy around with a character that was so meaty and complex and sad and in love and tortured and ecstatic. I felt like this film was exactly what I should be doing.”

He’s quick to quash any thought that there may have been reservations in taking the part: “I went to the LaGuardia High School for Performing Arts, the arts welcomes everyone. I never grew up with a stigma, or these stereotypes, let alone almost an awareness of them, and I guess it’s where the privilege comes in, to grow up in New York, to grow up in midtown Manhattan, but I just, in a very, again privileged sense, didn’t and don’t have the mechanism to really judge in a positive or negative fashion, sexuality or gender identity, or things of that nature.”


There were, however, reservations that certain scenes might have been more risqué. “Yes, yes!” he gasps. “Certainly the peach scene, above all,” he says of the moment where Elio masturbates using the fruit. “It felt risqué certainly in the physical reality of the scene, but it felt more risqué in the idea of, ‘How can we do this truthfully, how are we gonna get this across without it feeling disingenuous and huge, and even worse without it feeling underplayed’.

“I feel like the reason any of these things came on at all is all thanks to Luca, I think that came on that day because he was just such a common presence on set, and treated that scene the way every other scene was treated.”

It’s later revealed that not only did Luca try the scene at home, so did Timothée.

“Well I think experience is the best teacher,” he laughs. “Luca had the brilliant idea to have us out there a month early, so when it did come time to do those scenes we had been around each other for two months at that point. So any sort of artificial awkwardness that would come with shooting a movie on a stage, or shooting a movie in LA, to be sequestered in a small town in Italy for two months, and then to be shooting on one lens, it takes away a lot of the nerves around that kind of stuff.”

Talking of ‘that kind of stuff’, did filming also see him experience that gay man rite of passage – stubble rash?

“I don’t know what that is!” We explain. “Oh, very interesting, hmmm, hmmm,” he considers. “I guess now that you bring it up, yeah, I mean he’s not clean shaven in the movie…”

Dear Journal,

Hey it’s Teddy. Today wasn’t that great of a day. Let’s say I had better ones. Professor Snape said some homophobic things and I knew it was meant for James Sirius and I. He never quite liked our parents and he enjoyed hurting us I guess. And to add to my bad day, let’s say James Sirius still isn’t quite confident with his sexuality. He was and everything was well but he’s been bullied about it and now he’s more than fragile. Mean comments didn’t get to me. I learned to let them pass from one ear to the other… but James has always been fragile. He woke up happy and excited to share his only class with me. Defence against the dark arts. They mixed the two years for this class and James Sirius always liked this class just because he could sit beside me. Today we werestudying in silence while professor Snape was staring at all the students. Mostly us. James Sirius hadn’t noticed.. but I did.

“Mr. Potter, Mr.Lupin!” Snape yelled across the class.

James and I looked up from our books, wondering what we did wrong.

“I tought that it was forbidden to show affection towards another student in class?” Professor said.

“But.. professor we’re only holding hands.. It’s not forbidden..” I said, trying to stay polite.

“It’s not forbidden, you are right.” He said, looking at me straigjt in the eyes. “But for two boys? I couldn’t say the same thing.” He added.

I felt James Sirius get scared next to me. He didn’t need someone to do that to him. He was just starting to get better and be more confident about himself.

“How dare you?” I said, which made everyone gasp.

“Excuse me?” Snape said.

“How dare you say something like this?” I said, standing up.

He was silent. I took James Sirius’ hand and we grabbed our books and bags and when we were about to get out of the room, everyone else stood up too. James looked at me, confused. Everyone was sticking up for us. Everyone was leaving the class for us. Snape looked shocked. It was great. In the hall, everyone was telling us that we were strong and that we shouldn’t listen to him. Everyone was behind us, suporting us. I looked down at James Sirius and he was smiling. I’m so glad he was. I thought I would have to comfort him and tell him that he should try and be strong. But he was already strong. I was so proud of him.

“We’re gonna go tell McGonagall with you guys. If everyone is there, she’ll believe us.” Another Gryffindor said.

So we did. She wasn’t very happy with Snape’s attitude. After dinner James Sirius and I went for a walk on the grounds. It was getting cold because fall was coming up. The sky was grey and the wind was blowing. James Hugged his arms to warm himself up.

“Are you cold?” I asked.

“Just a bit frisky. I love fall.” He smiled.

Hot chocolates, scarves, fuzzy socks and lightened fire places. James Sirius and I always loved fall. When we were kids, we would jump in fallen leaves. It had always been our favorite time of the year.

“You look happy.” I said.

“I am.” He said, snuggling up closer to me.

Game of Thrones couple Kit Harington and Rosie Leslie 'buy £1.75m home together in English countryside'

The hit on- and off-screen couple Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, who met on set while filming the hit TV series Game of Thrones, are reportedly poised to move into a luxurious £1.75 million house in the English countryside.

The couple met in 2012 while playing Jon Snow and Ygritte in the fantasy series, eventually announcing they were dating after four years of speculation. Leslie was introduced to Game of Thrones in season two when she becomes Snow’s captive while the Night’s Watch travel north of the Wall, and their characters were scripted to fall in love.

The actors were previously rumoured to have been searching for a place in Manhattan, but have instead settled on a 15th century timber house in East Anglia - much more in keeping with the series that brought them together.

In an interview with Esquire, Harington revealed that he and Leslie were now living together. The star explained his decision to move in with Leslie is because he and his former roommate are going their separate ways. He said: “He’s going off with his girlfriend and I’m living with my girlfriend.”

The couple are private about their relationship and did not reveal they were dating until 2016. Harington said on the Jonathan Ross Show that the two made it official when they began filming in Iceland. He said: “I fell in love in Iceland. I fell in love with my co-star.”

Before snapping up their house in East Anglia, Harington admitted on The Late Late Show with James Cordon in June that the duo already lived together. He said: “I’ve moved in with my other best friend, Rose, so I’m very, very happy and it’s going well.”

News of the stars moving into their seven-bed house has sparked excitement in the local community, with one neighbour saying: “There are quite a few celebs living round here including rock stars and well-known TV people – so no-one makes much of a fuss and locals are very respectful of their privacy.”

The announcement comes after Kit shared how he feels about their relationship at the Game of Thrones season seven premiere in Hollywood last week. He said: “I think that’s the really special thing about it is that we met on this show and here we are seven years down the line back here promoting season seven.”

He added: “I mean it’s mad. It’s such a special thing. I’m so privileged.”

New Cursed Child cast mini review- spoilers

I saw Harry Potter and the Cursed Child a couple of days ago and I am absolutely loving this new cast! I am so eager to see them again.
I’m not very good at describing out details and sorry if I’m not very coherent through this XD I love reading these reviews so I thought I’d have a go.


I have seen the original cast twice before. In those times, I have seen two Scorpius portrayals (Anthony and Mx James) and two moaning myrtle portrayals (Annabel and Chipo). The new cast has a new and fresh take on this story.

Smauel Blenkin: Scoripus Malfoy  -   James Howard: Draco Malfoy
Theo Ancient: Albus Potter -     Jamie Glover: Harry Potter  
Emma Lowndes: Ginny Potter
-     Rakie Ayola: Hermione Granger-Weasley Thomas Aldridge: Ron Weasley -      Helen Aluko: Rose Granger-Weasley David Annen: Severus Snape-      Elizabeth Hill: Umbridge
April Hughes: Moaning Myrtle-    Annabel Baldwin: Delphi

Samuel, like everyone says, is a fantastic Scorpius.

He did the most massive leap in the air I have ever seen while yelling “YESSSSSS” when they figured out how to contact their parents. So good XD
His use of his hands is hilariously perfect and it was such a wonder watching him perform.
The staircase scene was so heartbreaking. He was constantly trying to wave at Albus, but getting no response. Him also breaking down about trying to see if his mother was still alive almost broke me. He was fantastic in that scene and very real.
Close to the end, when Scorpius and Albus are on the staircase, it was both hilarious and heartwarming. Samuel does a little dance and pops his leg out when he’s talking about Polly Chapman. He almost fell on top of Albus when Rose popped up. For both Scorbus and Scorrose shippers, it is an excellent scene to watch.
Scorpius is probably my favourite character of the show and I’m so happy with what Samuel is doing with the character. He is different to what Anthony and Mx James did with the character. I don’t like comparing, but he is closer to Anthony’s portrayal than Mx James’s (Who i thought was phenomenal). Samuel makes the role completely his own. Different yet the same Scorpius we all know and love. You believe that Samuel’s Scorpius is only 14 years old as he is hilarious childish, geeky and excitable. Very physical. Uses a lot of body language and his hands a lot, but in the right moments. 

James Howard is fantastic as Draco. He captures what Draco was in the books, and what I believe Draco would be like as a forty-year-old mourning parent. The relationship between Scorpius and Draco is so well captured and everyone clapped when they hugged each other after Draco’s line “we can hug too if you like” in Godric’s Hollow. They were also holding each other so tightly during the Lily and James death scene. Scorpius wrapped his arms right around him and put his head into Draco’s chest. Beautiful. (And Harry falling to the ground, bringing Ginny and Albus with his is too just heartbreaking. )

Draco did the greatest smirk I have ever seen after Ron said reluctantly, ‘I really like your hair Draco”. He looked so chuffed XD
His fabulous farmers market line also got a huge laugh.

When I was about 11 or 12 years old, I was a massive dramione shipper. I’m not really on that ship anymore, but the way Draco said: “I’m being bossed around by Hermione Granger… and I’m mildly enjoying it.”… I could feel my younger self jumping with joy XDDD He said it in such a suave way.

I really like Theo’s portrayal of Albus. He plays Albus in a much younger and innocent way, which I think is good cause sometimes I forget these characters are meant to be only 14 years old. When Scorpius woke him up in Part 2, he hit him with his pillow in a childish and brilliant manner. As he plays it so innocently, it’s so believable for him to feel so stupid after traveling back in time. And how crushed and humiliated he feels when it turns out that Delphi turned out to be bad. So sad hearing him say to his mum, “I really liked her, Mum. I really did”.

I love this new Hermione. She’s just brilliant. She’s a much more bubbly Hermione, which makes her even more horrifying in the alternative timeline. Very different to Noma, but a good different. Hermione in the Voldemort AU was everything. When I had seen it before, when Hermione is told she’s minister for magic, Noma does a funny little giggle- which I love! What Rakie did when she was told was so sassy. She was pointing her wand at Snape and said: “I’m minister for magic!” Not in a threatening way, just in an amazingly sassy way.

When I had seen the show before, in the polyjuice potion scene, Ron (Albus) only kissed Hermione once. However this time, Ron (Albus) kissed Hermione a whole bunch of times and tried to hug her a lot more! Thomas was so hilarious in that scene.
The way Jamie played Harry in that scene was also so funny. Just looking so awkward and walking off stage, his face in total “oh my god what did I just witness I don’t know what to do with myself” mode. Scarred for life he looked like XD My friend and I were laughing so much.

Thomas’s Ron is perfect for me. His comedic timing was on point and got big laughs all around. Thomas and Rakie’s chemistry is so sweet - it made it more painful to see them not together in the AU.
In the Voldemort timeline, when Hermione says “Ron, I love you and I always have’, you could hear the crack and heartache in her voice. She did a half laugh and half cry when she was talking to Ron about them having a son and a daughter. Perfect. So many tears.

Rose is the most adorable child. The scene when her and Hermione hug was so heartbreaking I was nearly in tears.

THIS SNAPE! David Annen! He is very much like Alan Rickman’s portrayal of Snape. He was calm, had brilliant comedic timing with his words. When Scorpius tells him how he dies, he replies, “How…very…………irritating”. It got a big laugh. I’m glad that Snape and Hermione aren’t as ‘touchy’ in this one, they stay quite far apart. Noma’s Hermione got a little too close to Snape’s face and touching for my liking - but that’s just me XD

Umbridge was great. When she entered on stage at the beginning of Part 2, she did a kind of sassy strut. Holding her cape up and doing a fabulously evil and sly walk XD love it.

Ginny is so strong and fierce. For someone reason in my mind, I thought the new Ginny was going to be really quiet. BOY WAS I WRONG and I’m so happy to be wrong! Emma was spectacular, truly what book Ginny is all about.
I AM SO GLAD THAT HARRY AND GINNY KISSED TWICE IN THE BLANKET SCENE. I am such a Hinny shipper and that just made my heart glow. XD

APRIL AS MYRTLE….. my gosh, it was phenomenal. Her voice is very close to the film version of moaning myrtle. She used a lot more body language than I’ve seen done before. While Harry was looking another way, she would (for a long time) be trying to stroke his back with her foot. Hilarious XD also getting a cold look from Ginny. She stepped in front of Harry to make her stop.

Annabels Delphi is spectacular. I was completely under her spell. I almost forgot who she truly was, so when she finally turns on Scorpius and Albus it is utterly terrifying and sad. (Scorpius was awkwardly patting Delphi on the back when she was hiding from a student on the staircase)

Plus, it was quite weird seeing Annabel as myrtle first and now seeing her as Delphi. However, she’s such a brilliant actress I forgot she used to be myrtle.

The dementor flew right past my face and it was amazing. I went with a friend who had not read the play or heard any spoilers, and she was completely terrified. We were sat at the front of the dress circle. That scene always gives me the chills.

I love the little details of the students acting in the background. Even though they are not at centre attention, they still do little things in the background. Little things like touching Rose’s shoulder in comfort while they were listening in on the staircase. Every single person on that stage has so much talent. The dancing always leaves me in awe and i wish i could watch it back over and over again.

I am bursting to see this cast again and I’m so glad i got to see them in their first week. Now i have about a year to be able to see them again. With the original cast, the first i saw of them was in May - a week before they were leaving so i had limited time to see them again. i stupidly forgot to buy a programme of this cast. Guess it gives me an excuse to go again quite soon XD

I love this play so much.

Dear Journal,

It’s Teddy again. Today I met James Sirius in my tree house so we could kiss without being seen by his parents. They didn’t know about him and I yet and I wanted him to tell them when he was ready. It wasn’t a rainy day but the sun was no where to be found. The dark clouds were floating above us. I had set up a comfortable little pillow fort inside of the tree house so we could cuddle. I was waiting for him with a bowl of buttery popcorn and two sodas, smiling like an idiot because I was thinking of him. He had that way to make me feel better.

“What are you daydreaming about?”

I quickly turned around and saw James in his gryffindor sweater. I smiled and he walked closer, his face only inches from mine.

“Hey..” I said, my lips brushing slightly on his.

He closed the gap between us and smiled through the kiss. He pulled away and pulled me back for a hug. He was so much shorter than me that he was standing on his tippy toes with his arms around my neck. While he was hugging me, I saw my dads looking at us through the window of the house showing me thumbs up. I motioned them to go away and they laughed, walking away.

“So, ready to see your suprise?” I asked James, looking into his smiley eyes.

He nodded excitingly and we walked up into the tree house. When James saw what I made with it, he gasped and smiled.

“Ted this is so cute!” He said, sitting close to me in the pillows.

“I told my dads about my sexuality yesterday.” I said, taking his hand in both of mine.

“How did they react?”

“They were very suportive and kinda happy too!” I laughed.

“I knew they would react that way. Your dads are great T..” He said.

“Are you feeling okay with everything? You know you can talk to me right?” I said, brushing my hand on his cheek.

“Yeah.. But i’m okay.. I’m just scared of being judge for only being myself..”

“It’ll be hard but at least we’re together in this. I won’t let you live it alone okay?” I said, looking into his beautiful eyes.

“Okay.. I love you Teddy.” He said, hugging me like it was the most normal thing to do.

“You love me?”

He looked at me like I was saying some nonsence.

“Of course I love you!”

I smiled and blushed.

“I love you too Jamie..” I said, kissing him slowly.

We spent the afternoon talking, kissing and eating popcorn. Suddently we heared a far thunder and I jumped.

“Was that thunder?” I asked, getting nervous.

“It’s okay Ted, let’s go inside okay?” James said, taking my hand.

We gatthered the pillows and walked inside as the rain started. Pads and moons were watching a movie cuddled into eachother in the living room.

“Party’s over already?” Sirius asked.

“It was raining and the storm is coming..” I said, taking James’ hand and heading to my room, trying not to start an awkward conversationwith my curious dads.

We walked into my room and both layed on my bed. I picked a movie on my laptop and we cuddled closer. The thunder storm started and James comforted me when I got scared. We fell asleep cuddled into eachother…

James Potter Mini Series - My Brother’s Best Friend (Part One)

Pairing: James Potter x Reader
Word Count: 2566
Blurb: Rosalind Black has always thought James Potter was cute, but that never mattered because he was in love with her best friend. Although, it seems that everything has been changing since her and her twin Sirius Black ran away from home and found themselves at James’ house.
Author’s Notes: This might be a bit slow, but will get better!



Based off this ‘Would Include’

It’s a very windy night out tonight and I can hear the branches and leaves on the tall trees thrashing in the wind. I should be at home right now, snuggled up in my warm comfy bed, with my big quilt hugging me, but no. I think back to how I got here. I think back to when I was a small eleven year old girl, going on to the Hogwarts Express as this was where it first began. Little did I know, that that day was the beginning of the end of my life.


“Oh my dear children, I hope you have a wonderful time at Hogwarts and make sure you are sorted into Slytherin!” My dear mother told Sirius and I, keeping it very formal and giving us a stiff hug and a quick kiss on the cheek.

“Alright mother, have fun without us,” Sirius said cheekily,  running off onto the train, dragging me along behind him as we were already quite late. I smiled and waved at my mother and father as they disapparated away. We stepped onto the train and looked back at all the first years (and older students) waving goodbye to their parents who were both proud of their children, but sad they had to leave.

“It’s going to be so hard to find an empty compartment,” Sirius said walking ahead of me.

“Oh well, it will give us an opportunity to meet new people,” I told him trying to quickly catch up to him. Sirius took a quick glance into a compartment and trying to be helpful, I looked to see if the one next to it was free.

“Ow,” I said rubbing my head. I looked up at a pretty boy who had very messy hair and round, thick glasses.

“Watch where you’re going.” He said hissed also rubbing his head.

“Watch where I’m going? Watch where you’re going.” I retorted as I heard Sirius scoff behind me, knowing he rolled his eyes as he walked next to me.

“I’m Sirius and this is Rosalind.” He acknowledged me by pointing at me.

“I’m James, James Potter.” The boy beamed with a sudden change in attitude, taking his hand away from his head, “Are you also first years?” He inquired as Sirius and I nodded.

“First years who are looking for an empty compartment,” I said, the tone of my voice also changing.

“So am I,” James admitted.

“Want to find one together?” Sirius offered as I nodded to back up his statement. This James was admittedly quite cute.

“Sure.” He smiled as we all continued walking, trying to find an empty compartment for all three of us.

“Hey, it looks like two first years are in this compartment, want to ask if we can join them?” I offered, it was hopeless trying to find an empty compartment, the train had already been in motion for a while. The two boys agreed and we politely asked if we could sit with them for the rest of the trip.

The young girl was eager to let us sit with her as they were, in fact, first years and she was eager to meet new friends. We soon found out that the pretty girl with fiery red hair was called Lily Evans and she was a muggle-born. The guy with the long raven hair was called Severus Snape and he didn’t seem too thrilled to be here.

“Why don’t you seem excited, Sev?” Sirius wandered looking over to the pale boy sitting in the corner next to the window. Across from him sat Lily, who I sat next too. Sirius sat next to me and James sat next to Severus.

“Why does it matter to you?” Severus sneered, I was unsure as to why he was acting that way. Sirius went to say something, but knowing he would say something stupid, I kicked his shin.

“So,” I said trying to break the tension in the air, “what house do we all want to be sorted into?” I asked excitedly. My parents expected Sirius and I to be put into Slytherin, .as everyone in the Black family was put into Slytherin and were shunned if they weren’t. Sirius and I have talked about what house we actually want to be put into. Sirius doesn’t want anything to do with Slytherin, but I don’t mind really. I’m quite eager to find out which house the Sorting Hat thinks would be best for me and I think it would be nice if it was Slytherin.

“Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart! Like my dad… Got a problem with that?” James inquired

“No. If you’d rather be brawny than brainy.” Severus snapped making the compartment go quiet again. James went to say something but stopped.

“I think either Ravenclaw or Gryffindor would be nice,” Lily admitted trying to make the situation less awkward.

The rest of the ride was quite silent and awkward and I felt very out of place. I was very excited to get off the train and away from that situation.

I walked into the Great Hall and felt more at home than I did at my actual home. Hogwarts was where I was meant to be. I looked at Sirius, awestruck, our expression was mirrored, making us smile really big. We were getting ready to be placed into our houses. A few names were called and then, “Rosalind Black.” I took a big breath as I looked over to Sirius. He gave me a reassuring smile and I walked up to the stand. The hat was placed on my head. After a lot of talking and a lot of deciding, the hat screamed, “GRYFFINDOR.” Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no. My parents are going to actually kill me once they find out about this.

I looked at Sirius who strutted to the stool as I sat at the Gryffindor table. A lot of people congratulated me, but I just couldn’t concentrate. What if Sirius didn’t get placed in Gryffindor? Either way, my parents are going to be mortified once they find out, and they will find out.

“GRYFFINDOR.” The hat bellowed as Sirius’ face lit up as he basically bounced to the Gryffindor table, sitting next to me.

“Two Blacks, in Gryffindor? What a day!” He exclaimed very excitedly.

“Yes, but what about mother and father, you know how they’re going to react,” I asked worriedly, my other fear of being the only Black in Gryffindor disappearing.

“Don’t worry about it, Rosalind.” He told me shaking his head slightly. I sighed as more names got called out.

Lily also got placed into Gryffindor which made me very happy, she seemed like a nice, genuine person. Someone I could imagine being friends with in the future. She sat on the opposite side of me as we talked about how happy we were, or how happy she was.

A boy named Remus Lupin and a boy named Peter Pettigrew also got placed into Gryffindor and sat on the opposite side of us. Remus was very nice and seemed quite intelligent, Peter was very quiet, but still seemed like a nice guy.

My thoughts were interrupted when James got called up. The hat barely touched his head before it yelled out, “GRYFFINDOR.” He looked very smug as he basically ran to the table, sitting next to Sirius.

We watched the rest of the kids get called up and it was no surprise when Severus got sorted into Slytherin, Lily seemed sad, but honestly, he seemed like bad news.

I ate more than my stomach could handle, but the taste of the food was impossible to put into words.

The prefects showed us to our dorm, but before we went off I sneaked over to find Sirius.

“Hey,” I said poking his shoulder.

“What?” He asked confused.

“What are we going to do about this?” I asked in a hushed tone so the boys around him wouldn’t hear.

“About what?” He whispered back as the boys around him excluded him out of the conversation and continued without him.

“About being sorted into Gryffindor.” You exclaimed.

“Nothing.” He said coolly.

“We have to do something, our parents are going to kill us when they found out.” I was very stressed.

“Look,” he said with a softer tone, “don’t worry about mother and father, Gryffindor is a great house. I know they are going to be monstrous once they found out about this, but I won’t let them do anything to you.” He said sincerely. Sirius was a fun guy, but he was very protective when it came to me. “Just enjoy your first night at Hogwarts, okay?” I nodded and went up to my dorm, which I was happy to know, I would be sharing with Lily.


I shiver as I think of that memory and wish I could go back to that young, naive me and tell her that yes she does need to worry. She’s a Black and Blacks don’t get sorted into Gryffindor.

I look at Sirius who had an expressionless look on his face.

“Why James’ house?” I croaked.

“I didn’t know where else to go.” He sheepishly admitted. To be fair, he did have a point, who else was going to allow us into their house at 3:32 in the morning.

I felt very nervous as we walked up to his door. Sirius and I let out a big breath in sync.

“Can you do it?” He choked. I nodded and quietly knocked on the door.

“Really Rosie?” He asked using one of his many nicknames he had for me.

“I’m sorry.” I sniffled, there were so many emotions I was feeling right now, but I couldn’t let them get the best of me.

He sighed and winced as he knocked very loudly on the door. I felt bad, I felt so bad it was making me sick. Poor Mr. and Mrs. Potter are probably so scared right now wondering who would be knocking on their door at this time of night? We see the light turn on and three pairs of footsteps rushing to the door. I felt bad that we were being burdens to the poor Potters. We heard their footsteps at the door and looked up as they opened it.

“Sirius? Rosalind? What are you doing here at 3 in the morning?” James asked, his eyebrows furrowed together.

“We are so sorry, it’s just that-that, well we had-we just we had nowhere else to go.” Sirius’ voice cracked and that was it. That was when I lost it. I was just so overwhelmed right now and to see Sirius weak at this moment was just too much for me. Sirius was always the stronger one out of us. He could always hide his emotions easily and was always brave like the true Gryffindor he really was.

I choked on my tears and could just make out the worried face of Mrs. Potter through the tears in my eyes as she grabbed my arm and pulled me into the house, Sirius following in behind me. She sat me down on their really comfortable lounge and yelled out, “Fleamont, get me two blankets, please and James? Be a darling, put the kettle on and make two teas.” She ordered the two men as she put an arm around me and rubbed my back.

Once James and Mr. Potter came back, she wrapped the blankets around us and handed us two fancy cups of tea.

“I hope you like tea.” She said as I let the steam from the hot cup warm up my face. My teeth were chattering and I felt very awkward as I had never actually been to James’ house before. He and Sirius were friends but I wasn’t really close with him. I mean I talked to him and acknowledged him when we were both with Sirius, but we weren’t really close. I wish we were, James is a very pretty boy and he was a very cocky attitude that suits him perfectly. I looked up at him and he sadly smiled at me. I thought about third year me. The one who was absolutely shattered that the boy she liked was head over heels for her best friend.  I smiled softly back, sniffling again and wiping the tears from my eyes, shaking from the coldness and from my sobs.

Mrs. Potter grabbed the tissues from the table next to her and handed them to me.

“Now, would you like to tell me what has gotten you so upset?” She asked kindly looking at both me and Sirius. I looked at Sirius, silently telling him that he had to speak, because I couldn’t, I was too shaken up. He took a deep breath and told them. He told them very little, not wanting them to know just how bad our home life was.

I’m pretty sure I cried throughout the whole story as Mrs. Potter continued to rub reassuring circles on my back. Both James and Mr. Potter stood around the lounge listening to every word Sirius spoke.

“We are so sorry to be a burden, Mrs. Potter it’s just that-” I shakingly said, but she cut me off and said, “Don’t be sorry my dear, you have every right to be upset and you are welcomed to stay here for as long as you need, even if you need to stay until you go back to Hogwarts.” She beamed making both Sirius and I shake out heads.

“Mrs. Potter, we couldn’t ask for that really-” Sirius asked, but he also got cut off by Mrs. Potter.

“But you see my dear, you didn’t ask. James can show you our two spare rooms. Rosalind can have the one next to yours James and Sirius can have the one down the hall. How does that sound?” She compromised as everyone nodded, Sirius and I quite reluctant, “Also, my names Euphemia and that’s Fleamont, Mr. and Mrs. Potter is just too formal.” She smiled sweetly as Sirius and I continued to thank her for her kind actions.

We finished our tea and Euphemia and Fleamont went back to bed leaving James to show us to our rooms.

“I’m sorry.” He said quietly.

“Don’t be mate,” Sirius said smiling softly. I was unable to reply as I was still sniveling from crying so much. We got to our room and we talked for a bit in the hallway.

The Potter’s house was very big and James promised to take us on a ‘house tour’ tomorrow. I laughed slightly wiping my eyes with the back of my sleeve. James sighed and pulled me into a hug. He tightly wrapped his arms around me, but as I was taken off guard I kind of just stood there. It was still a very comfortable hug, though. It was nice to be hugged, it felt good. I looked to the side and saw Sirius with a scowl on his face making me smile to myself. I sighed as James continued to hug me. I felt very warm and fuzzy, it felt good to be hugged by James. He smelt good as well which was also a bonus. I closed my eyes, feeling very safe in his arms and I felt sad knowing that we would eventually have to let go.

Part 1

You sat crying on your bed. Tears rolled down your face as you struggled to stop it. It was hopeless. It had been two weeks exactly since you woke up. Two weeks that you’ve spent with the boys, trying to remember. You spent most of the time in your room. The boys had agreed that you should get the guest room, they didn’t want to force you to sleep with them already. You spread yourself out on the bed and glanced at the clock.

5:42 am. Great.

You sighed again, looking up at the ceiling. Almost another four hours of waiting. You noticed that the boys normally got up late when they had off. You dragged yourself out of bed, forcing your eyes to squeeze shut. The tears slowed, leaving your eyes red and puffy. The air from around you hit your face, beginning to dry it of any tears remaining. You sluggishly dragged yourself to the bathroom, maybe a shower might clear your thoughts.

You started the water and prepared to get in. You didn’t care if the water was freezing, it was exactly what you needed. A little reminder that you were still human. Under all that uncertainty, there was a real person with a past and boyfriends who loved them.

Your invited...

Another one! This was fun to write:) I changed quit a few things, like Sharna and Val’s relationship and a few other things to work better for the story. So some of the time line has been changed in this story. Hope you enjoy! Comment thoughts!!


You are formally invited to the wedding of Sharna Burgess and James Hinchcliffe
Please RSVP at your earliest convenience.

Somewhere in NYC:
Those words made Val feel like he couldn’t breath. He couldn’t believe she was getting married. It has been five years since the end of there two year relationship, which had ended at the end of the season 23 tour. Val knew then that her heart belonged to the Indy car driver, he had seen how close they had gotten, how much time they spent together, he had seen that they had grown closer than any partners had before, but he tried so hard to ignore it. He was so in love with the spunky red head. He had always love being on the show, and a huge reason for that was because got to be with Sharna a lot, but after they split up, he stopped feeling at home on DWTS and left the show before season 24. He couldn’t handle seeing her every day and not being with her and they hadn’t ended well. He was so mad at her for breaking up with him for someone she couldn’t have that he said things he will always regret. Ever since than they barley speak. The only times they do are when Shai is involved, because they both love that little boy, and for him, Sharna and Val would pretend that Sharna didn’t feel guilt about breaking his heart and Val didn’t have his heart broken so badly it might not be able to be fixed. So with the knowledge that seeing her be happy and in love with someone else, especially James, would be too hard, he marked no on the RSVP card, put it back in the return envelope, and with one final thought of regret, put the envelope in the mail. Val was already dreading the next time he went to see his brother, knowing she would be there with her new husband.

Somewhere in LA:
It’s been almost four years since Pierson and Sharna had split up. They had gotten close after her split with Val and started dating during season 24 of DWTS. They had fun together and Pierson really liked her, which is why he became friends with the man she left her last boyfriend because of. Pierson knew all about her relationship with Val and the reason she broke up with him, she had started to love James, but decided not to act of those feelings because it would hurt to many people, and James had a girlfriend. Pierson didn’t care that she liked someone else when they started dating, it wasn’t supposed to be serious, just fun and a commitment they both wanted. However after going with her to see him race in the Indy 500, Pierson noticed the way James looked at Sharna and vise versa, he saw they way both there eyes light up when the other walked in the room, and he saw how nervous she was for him the second he got in that car. Pierson and Sharna continue led to date until one month in too season 25, which happens to be an All Star season, and her partner was of course her best partner, James Hinchcliffe. Pierson didn’t know that James and Becky had broken up until a week in to rehearsal, when Sharna and him where lying on the couch watching tv and she mentioned it. He was shocked and it got to his head, so the next day he went to rehearsal with her. He saw how different there relationship was now that they where back to being partners, they acted like they had never been apart, he saw the looks and touches and how they where never apart. By the end of the week, they both realized the truth, Sharna was meant to be with James and Pierson wasn’t gonna stand in the way, so they split up, still in really good terms, because he wanted her to be happy, and he’s glad it’s with someone as great as his friend, James. So with a smile on his face he grasped his RSVP card and marked yes. Than he grabbed his phone and sent a message to both of them saying how happy he was for them and they should meet up for dinner. Knowing his friends where happy, and knowing that it would be a great wedding because the girl he would always care about was happy and marrying a man she was in love with.

The Wedding Day:
James and Sharna where over the moon about finally getting married. They had an amazing relationship from the start. Two months in to the All Star season, while they where practicing there Rumba, James grabbed her when she was thinking of there next steps and kissed her. They had been together ever since. They barley spent two weeks apart even with both there crazy schedules, because since the start of the relationship, during Indy car season, Sharna took time off from DWTS to travel with James and during his off time he lived in LA with her so she could dance during the fall season. They where so happy they couldn’t wait to walk down the aisle. James had tears in his eyes while watching her walk down the aisle, his best man, his brothers, clapped him on the shoulder and smiled. James took his eyes of Sharna for a moment to look at his grooms men, Conor, Maks, and Calvin. They had all smiles on there faces and he could see a few tears in Maks eyes. As Sharna walked down the aisle on her dads arm she couldn’t stop smiling. Before her Lindsay, Jenna, Rumer, and her maid of honor, Peta had just reached the alter. She looked over to see Shai, who had been the ring bearer, standing in front of Maks with a big smile on his face, because even though he was still little, he knew his favorite abut was really happy and it made him happy too. Sharna reached the alter kissed her dad on the check and took James’s outstretched hand. He looked at her as if she was the only thing in the planet and she had the same look on her face.

The wedding had been beautiful and so incredibly touching, tears had been shed by everyone in the room. The reception was incredible, with everyone dancing and eating and having a blast together. The bride and groom hadn’t left each other’s side since they where pronounced man and wife. They walked around and talked to everyone of there guests from family and friends to fellow pros, past contestants, and fellow racers. Sharna was so happy but part of her noticed that Pierson who they had seen not to long ago was there, smiling, dancing and having fun. She knew he would came when she sent the invite to him months ago, however when she sent the invite to Val it was only for Maks, Peta, and Shai. She knew that he wouldn’t come, since they hadn’t talked in almost five years. But still, not seeing him at such a big moment in her life was odd, since he was at every other. Part of her missed his presence but the other part knew it would have been awkward if he had come. She was brought back to the present when James wrapped his arms around her waist from behind and kissed her check. She smiled and turned to face him. She pulled him in to a kiss and he smiled in to it. When they pulled away he told her it was time to head to the airport where a plane was going to be taking them to Italy for a month.

Back in NYC:
Val sat in his apartment, alone, with a large glass of his favorite drink. He knew what was happening at this moment. The love of his life was parting with her new husband and it wasn’t him. He knew from his brother who was going to be at the wedding and knowing all his family, and old colleagues where at her wedding made him feel sick, he always thought they would all be at his wedding, celebrating them becoming man and wife, but that wasn’t going to happen now. He was just about to fall into a drunken sleep when his phone light up with a text from his brother. The message held a two pictures, one of Sharna and James standing in the middle of the dance floor wrapped tightly around each other as they clearly swayed to the music, the other was a picture of Sharna holding Shai with a huge smile on her face while she looked at him, and on the side of the picture you could see James looking at her like she was his whole world. Below the pictures it read “I know your upset and probably drunk, but hopefully you can see how happy she is. Grow up and be happy for her, because she will always be family and she will always be around.” After reading the message, Val threw his phone across the room not caring if it broke. He poured another drink and let his mind wonder to when he was allowed to look at her the way James now did.

1 year later:
Val had been doing a bit better since Sharna married James. But when he got home from work at his dance studio, and checked his mail, he noticed he had a letter from his brother. When he opened it the first thing he saw was a short note, that read “I thought you should know. I know you might be upset but I thought finding out this way would be better than showing up at thanksgiving and finding out. She’s really happy and James and her are still very happy and both are over the moon. Sorry brother.” The other thing was a birth announcement, on it where to pictures on of a beautiful little girl wearing a onesie that said “my daddy is a Indy car driver, and my mommy is a dancer” the other picture was of Shai holding that little girl, looking incredibly excited. Val looked at the little girl with brown hair and bright blue eyes she clearly got from her mom, and his heart broke a little bit but he realized that as much as it hurt Sharna now had a family of her own with out him and he was going to have to deal with it and finally move on.

6amwritings  asked:

Do you ever just cry because. The marauders? Because it's 4am and I'm currently crying because they didn't deserve what happened and I can't and I'm a mess and just idk. Sirius best friend and brother died and he got blamed and spent 12 years in Azkaban and Remus lost all of his best friends in the same night and had to live with that and James and Lily just died so young and my heart and I can't. Pleease give me some happy headcannons from their time at hogwarts or something

I cry about them like every night tbh, like all i have to do is just remember that sirius spent more time in azkaban than he did with james and then i just want to die lmao

but i mean their hogwarts days had to have been amazing???

  • Like just imagine little first year Sirius being very conflicted when the sorting hat shouts “Gryffindor!” and he goes and sits alone at the table but then that funny boy James he met on the train is sorted into gryffindor too and he comes and sits with him and says “looks like we’re stuck with each other, mate!” and suddenly everything is a little better?
  • By the end of first year the two of them and Remus and Peter are inseparable
  • And can you imagine them constantly annoying mcgonagall in class, but she really can’t complain too much because they’re all good students?
  • although she draws the line when sirius asks her out on a dare because “that is completely inappropriate, mr. black!” and he gets a week of detention
  • can you imagine the joy on James’s face in sixth year when he scores a goal for gryffindor in the most important quidditch match of the season and he looks to the stands out of habit and lily evans is actually cheering for him instead of rolling her eyes???
  • or Peter running up to the other boys, totally gleeful, and announcing that against all odds he actually got six OWLs???
  • And they’re all so happy for him???
  • OR. JUST IMAGINE.  Lily and James at the end of sixth year, right before summer break, being the last two in the common room and James mentions that he’s pretty sure they’ll be head boy and girl next year
  • And lily rolls her eyes but she’s smiling as she does and as James casually pats her knee and says “Gryffindor’s in trouble, eh?” she realizes he’s not so bad after all?
  • i mean oh my god???
  • The marauders had the best time at hogwarts tbh like yes their stories were tragic but they really left a legacy
  • i’m a little drunk so i’m sorry if this makes no sense
  • but there’s A SONG that i like and one of the lines is “It sure left its mark on us, we sure left our mark on it, we let the world know we were here, with everything we did” and i feel like that really sums up the marauders
  • excuse me while i happy-cry

Cait :)

I was planning on getting a knife as an mcr themed tattoo so when I met James Dewees a few weeks ago I asked him to draw a knife for me, thinking of a kitchen knife or a switchblade but he went straight for pirate dagger. I don’t mind it’s fucking awesome and I’m very happy to have it.

Also the conversation went something like this:
“Can you maybe draw a knife for me?”
“A knife what the fuck yea I guess….. (Mumbles of what the hell did I do while fixing the handle) like this?”
“Yeah that’s awesome, thanks. I’m getting that tattooed.”
“Why the FUCK didn’t you tell me that first?!!”

Let's Hear it For Captain America

I had a hard time writing this one. I don’t know if it is because of writer’s block, or if it is because I am not very good at action. But, I wanted to challenge myself, and this is obviously an important turning point for Bucky, Steve and the Reader.

I am not sure if I am super happy with how it turned out, but I was torturing myself with it, so I thought I would post it. Any feedback is greatly appreciated, and I will try to get better at the more action oriented stories!



You stared out of the plane anxiously. You were terrified of what you were about to do, but you had to do it. Peggy had walked you through it step by step, so at least you knew what you were doing.

You watched Steve jump, and when Peggy signalled for you to follow, you hesitantly did. Peggy’s instructions were very clear, and she was so calm, despite the fact that the plane was under fire. You repeated the instructions in your head, accent and all, and it helped you stay calm. You pulled the line, the chute deployed, and within another few minutes, you landed near Steve in a dark field.

You were still very shaky, so Steve helped you out of the parachute, then held your shoulders, looked you dead in the eyes, and asked, “are you sure you want to do this with me?”

You nodded your reply immediately, and you were both on your way, heading in the direction that Peggy and Howard indicated.

CW Superheroes are Back! Part 1

The CW returned this week with all new episodes of new and old shows and I was super (no pun intended) excited to pick up with all new episodes of the legends of the superflarrow universe. Check out my reviews on Supergirl and Flash below!


After the emotional season finale last year, we all knew that Kara would be experiencing a lot in the 3rd season, and we were correct as the show began with a sad dream sequence involving Mon-El and Kara’s mom, Lara. [I think it’s fantastic that yet another alum of the Superman universe is on Supergirl–Erica Durance Smallville’s Lois Lane–but I like how we’re not addressing the change in actress at all.]

I don’t know if it’s because it’s been so long since the finale, but everyone looked so different. It might just be because it has been a while, but Melissa’s hair definitely got blonder. (It always looks so good. I wish I could pull off some many of her hairstyles as Kara Danvers.) I loved seeing all members of Team Supergirl again and was very happy that James Olsen even made multiple appearances. Last season, despite his new role as Guardian, there would be several episodes at a time where he was just missing and no one addressed where he was. In the boardroom I couldn’t help, but notice a little connection between him and Lena when they backed each other up on Supergirl. Could they possibly be setting up something there?? Am I reading too much into this?? (Probably.) But she did just buy CATCO, so the two can possibly have more screen time together….We shall see. 

Kara’s focus on only being Supergirl this episode and leaving Kara Danvers behind was very reminiscent to some of the other superhero plots we’ve seen on other shows in the past. Oliver Queen on Arrow only being the Green Arrow. It seems like a plight that each character must undergone and I’m interested in seeing how Kara experiences it, seeing as how she has been such a positive hero in the past. 

I understand why Kara was feeling the way she did, but was happy when she had some consoling by J’onn. Everyone had been pestering her about her feelings and he was the first person I thought of that she should talk to. He has experienced something extremely similar. I’m glad that conversation happened even if it was super short. J’onn had a strong father figure role, yet again, this episode. I love how Alex asked if he will walk her down the aisle. :)

While there were mixed reviews on Mon-El last season, he was always one of my personal favorites (and I was on the Team Karamel ship). So, it was great still seeing his name as a series regular, and I love how he was the one to get through to Kara to, “WAKE UP!” I can’t wait to see where he’s been all of this time later in the season. 

Maggie and Alex’s talk about their wedding made me really nervous for how things are going to go. On shows we’re never allowed to have anything nice, so I’m crossing my fingers that it is smooth sailing. They deserve to be happy. I also thought I heard that Floriana (who plays Maggie) isn’t a series regular, so that worries me (but I might be wrong–Let me know.)

Talking about things going wrong, we got a first look at the new villain, Reign, who doesn’t know who she is. That is going to be an interesting character arc for sure!

Favorite quote from this episode (paraphrasing):  Alex and J’onn- Don’t cry or I’ll cry and then people will know we actually can cry.

The Flash

How crazy is it that we are already in the 4TH SEASON!!! Time is racing by…(okay that pun was on purpose) :)

The beginning, when we saw Team Flash minus its lead hero, felt a lot like on Buffy the Vampire Slayer when Buffy left and the Scooby Gang were fighting the bad guys. It was interesting to see Iris step up and be the leader back at STAR Labs. Loved seeing Cisco (or should I say Vibe) getting in on some superhero action out in the field. Also really enjoyed Joe’s shades. Iris sleeping on the couch made my heart break. The team felt really small compared to where we were last season. I was kind of sad that Harry wasn’t around. I hope we see him soon.

I was happy Barry was brought back in the same episode. I thought we were going to have to wait till like the last 5 minutes or till the 2nd ep. I also like how they made him in a different state of mind, but feel like his recovery was too fast and he can’t be 100% back. It seemed too easy and I wouldn’t be surprised if something happens to Barry later in the season as a repercussion.

I’m excited this season’s big bad is actually not another speedster, but I’m going to have to do some research on who he is because I don’t know much. 

Caitlin! At first I thought she was taking a drug to suppress Killer Frost and the guy who interrupted her and Cisco at the bar was her dealer. Then I thought she was a part of a gang. But I was shocked that she’s got a Jekyll and Hyde thing going on. Super intense! I’m hoping we gain some backstory in flashback form for what happened with her these past 6 months. 

The parallels this episode to the pilot were FANTASTIC! I had just rewatched the first episode recently, so it was even more satisfying. Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” Cisco and the twizzlers, plus Caitlin asking him to pee in the cup. Too good!

I also really enjoyed all the new STAR Labs merch. There was a towel that Joe used when he gave Barry a shave and a white tee that Wally was sporting. Very nice. 

My favorite quote this episode was a tie between: “This house is bitchin.” (So funny) and the comment Cisco made about Caitlin liking urine. 

Stay posted for my CW Superhero Reviews Part 2 involving Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow!! Can’t wait to see what’s in store for them.

Oh don’t worry darling... Looking is free.

Though a few people have already guessed this, I’m pleased to announce that I wrote Aurora James’ route in Gangsters in Love.

Get it, MC.

Anyway, on a more serious note, it was nerve-wracking to write another f/f route for Voltage. I worried near constantly and I’m sure I drove a few people crazy with it, but I really wanted to make sure Aurora’s route was as good as it could possibly be! 

I’m so excited and relieved to know you all enjoyed her so much, and it was such an honor and a pleasure to write Chance Valentine and Aurora James as the first and last routes to be released for season one! 

I know the overlap between “people who want to romance Chance” and “people who want to romance Aurora” might not be very large, but if you enjoyed Aurora at all I really recommend you also give Chance a chance! (No, I’ll never stop making that joke.) There are a lot of intentional parallels between the routes, and I really did view them as “bookends” for season one. 

Likewise if you loved Chance, you should definitely play Aurora’s route– she comes on strong, but she’s actually very sweet, sincere, and secretly, just a little nerdy. She’ll treat you right– you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to her.

As always, Thanks Voltage for this incredible opportunity!

What are your marauders hc for Halloween since you already did aChristmas one?

Ho ho hoooo boy, here we go!

- So, Christmas is Lily and Remus’ Holiday …

- But Halloween?

- Now that, children, is James Potter and Sirius Black’s time to shine.

- They live for this holiday.

- They literally spend the year between Halloween’s planning their next Halloween prank.

- And their pranks are legendary.

- Even the Slytherins had to admit that.

- One year, they even managed to convince Professor McGonagall to participate in the halloween prank.

- No one knows how they managed it.

- Sirius swears it’s his charms in wooing her

- (But it didn’t go unnoticed that James and Sirius didn’t cause any trouble or get detention for a month before hand)

- They always threw a fantastic (and terrifying) Halloween Party in the Gryffindor commons

- They would even get the school ghosts involved in the party, popping out of punch bowls and scaring the ba-jeebers out of the younger years.

- All of the professors turned a blind eye to the party, expect from Flitch.

- But Dumbledore usually gives him an impossible task to complete the night they have the party.

- Normally something involving Peeves.

- If you didn’t come to the party in a costume, you didn’t come in at all.

- It was the only rule.

- And it was the party to be at, so everyone went all out.

- There was a huge debate about which holiday party was better throughout their seven years at Hogwarts.

- Christmas or Halloween?

- Remus tried to go dressed as himself one year by telling Sirius and James he was going as a werewolf.

- They marched him straight back up those stairs and transfigured some old clothes into a costume for him, and was hexed orange and green by James.

- He wasn’t best pleased with the results, but if you didn’t come in your own costume, you got stuck with the first thing that comes into Sirius’ head.

- A Pumpkin.

- He still hasn’t lived that down.

- James and Sirius did so much research into muggle customs on halloween to make sure that everyone felt included

- That’s how they found out about muggle party games like Truth or Dare, Never have I Ever, and Spin the Bottle.

- When Lily became Prefect, she demanded they make a rule that fourth years and under couldn’t participate in those games.

- People thought it was because she was a bore and weren’t very happy with the rule.

- But the truth was, a few of the younger years had come to her in private with their worries of peer pressure and didn’t want to be bullied for not playing the games.

- The only other person who knew that though was James Potter who accidentally overheard the conversation and enforced the rule immediately.

- Even Lily doesn’t know that James knew the real truth behind it.

- Sirius went all out on his costumes.

- You know those cosplayers that can just physically change themselves purely with makeup and a costume and look perfect and just are the embodiment of the character they’re playing?

- That is Sirius Black.

- The year he went as Jareth from Labyrinth?

- Remus still gets dry mouth just thinking about it.

- As do many other people at Hogwarts.

- Peter went as the same thing every single year - a mouse.

- People thought it was because he couldn’t think of anything better, but the truth was he didn’t have the money to buy a new costume each year.

- James, Sirius and Remus were very protective of Peter and his costume.

- It just wasn’t halloween without it.

- The year the full moon fell on halloween was a disaster.

- Everyone was really excited because how spooky would it be having the halloween party on a full moon?

- Remus told them just to have the party without him

- He was fine

- But Sirius would not allowed that.

- Either would James or Peter, but Sirius was the more vocal about it.

- So after discussions with Dumbledore, they planned to have the halloween party the day after so Remus could still come; even if he was a little battered and bruised.

- It would add character to his zombie costume.

- Dumbledore had told them all an elaborate tale that morning at breakfast.

- He said that Halloween was not allowed to be celebrated on the full moon because it would offend the centaurs and other creatures in the forbidden forest and they may pledge war on Hogwarts.

- Remus will always be grateful for that crazy tale, otherwise he would have missed Jareth Sirius.

- A lot of dirty secrets came to light during Never Have I Ever and Truth or Dare.

- Like Marlene Mckinnon, the girl everyone thought was wild and out there, was actually quite tame.

- Quiet little Mary however … whoosh.

- Its always the quiet ones that surprise you.

- Lily was the one who chose Dare every single round of Truth or Dare.

- She didn’t care what the dare was, she was game.

- Some people always got Lily wrong and thought she was a stick in the mud

- But the real Lily Evans?

- That girl could out marauder the marauders.

- Don’t even get Sirius started on the year that she pulled a better halloween prank than him and James back in third year.

- He calls it ‘The Dark Times’

- James calls it the day he fell in love with Lily Evans.

I seriously need to stop. I will go on all night. Just, these nerds.

Why James Norton Makes the Perfect…
Interviews by Ellie Austin

by James Runcie, Author of the Grantchester Mysteries
As the Rev Sidney Chambers is loosely based on my father [who was Archbishop of Canterbury Robert Runcie], I was picky about who played him. I wanted someone good-looking, compassionate, with a sense of humour and who knows about religion. Demanding, I know.
I was very keen on James - mainly because of his looks. It’s important Sidney is Anglican, so he can get married. I wanted there to be love and sexual tension in the series, but I didn’t realise quite how sexy James would make him!
It helps that James studied theology. When he’s faced with crime, he’s very good at being lovingly disappointed. My father used to say, “You must hate the sin but love the sinners.” James really captures that, but he’s good at anger, too.

by Sally Wainwright, creator of Happy Valley
I first saw James on stage playing Stanhope in [RC Sherriff’s First World War play] Journey’s End.
He had fabulous presence and I noted his name.
Then he auditioned for Happy Valley. We had about 25 people audition to play Tommy Lee Royce, but the majority of them wore Tommy’s evilness on their sleeve. James did a very subdued, vulnerable performance. It was incredibly subtle and clever.
After we cast him, James spent a lot of time with a psychotherapist thinking about what makes someone act as extremely as Tommy does. James is a thinker. It’s not enough for him to accept that Tommy is evil. He wants to know why. He loves talking things through to get his performance spot on - and it shows.

by Andrew Davies, adapter of War and Peace
James is soulful, intelligent and very nice. And in a way that’s a problem for him. Prince Andrei in War and Peace isn’t very nice to lots of people - including his wife. Director Tom Harper spent a lot of time telling James not to smile. The fact that he succeeded shows what a bloody good actor he is.
I wrote the Winter Palace ballroom scene to be impossibly romantic and I hoped the audience was going to fall in love with James. He said that I set him up as a heart-throb before the series started by comparing his character to Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice - but all I meant was that Prince Andrei was standoffish and haughty.
I didn’t mean James was going to make women across the country swoon. But of course he did!

Damon is very domineering and maybe Graham had just had enough, but I do think Damon went to great lengths to make Graham feel like 13 was his record as well. Damon gave him one of the strongest melodies, which Graham wrote a good lyric for, but graham wasn’t happy and he didn’t always turn up. It was frustrating because when he did, everything he did was brilliant. He never played a bum note. His hearing was the most astute of anybody's and he could pick things up in mixes that would never occur to me, or mixmaster William for that matter.

/// This is the Secret Santa gift for @lekawaiimelon My apologies for the delay! ///

You have been waiting for hours already. You wish Damien just hurried up and came home where you can celebrate the Christmas Eve together. But what’s more important, you worry. The weather is horrible, snow covers the view as well as the highway he needs to use on his way home. Phone doesn’t answer, so you just wait patiently, trying to calm yourself down.

The door finally opens, and you rush to the door. Damien is there, blushing cheeks making his adorable smile even prettier. It’s so wonderful. He is safe. You are together now. You stare at Damien’s eyes, he seems guilty but happy to see you.

- Love! I’m so, endlessly, sorry for being late. I know Christmas is very important to humans, and I did my best to come in time. The volunteer party for kids in hospital went great, kids were so happy with gifts James supplied. I wish you could see their faces. But I have a few photos for you! When we finished, they wanted to hug Santa, I just couldn’t refuse, I’m so sorry, Love…

He is just THAT kind. In fact, it’s great. This is what you love him for, after all. You smile and hug Damien, his skin and outfit smell with cinnamon and snow.

- I worried, Damien. But I’m very happy for you as well. You found your path, you are helping children and I am sure you were a wonderful Santa. Thank you for coming home, Damien.

You say with a smile of relief. Damien hugs you tighter before letting go.

- I love you so much. You are the best wonder happened to me in my whole life. Oh, look, I’ve got something for you!

He gives you a stunning, shiny bouquet of roses and chocolates, decorated with candy canes. Then, a wrapped gift box, topped with a big bow. Oh my…

- Damien, is it…?

The gift you’ve dreamed for. The one you wanted the most, but didn’t tell Damien directly. He winks happily, and then…

- Here, look! This is a postcard children made for Mrs Santa. Isn’t it pretty?

A watercolour drawing on white paper, with golden calligraphic wish for happy holidays to Mr and Mrs Santa. Too cute. Now you know for sure you’ll join Damien next time, just to spread some happiness in this world. You nod, and kiss Damien sweetly.

… A noise from the entrance distracts you from your beloved Damien.
- My deepest apologies for the intrusion, Miss.
- Happy holidays, Princess. I hope you didn’t wait for too long.
- What’s up Doofus?
- Heeeeey Merry Christmas!

You turn to the entrance. They all are here. Bags, gift boxes, food in their hands. All incubae squad is there for you. Tears slowly appear in your eyes, before you burst in laugher. Damien grabs you bridal style and kisses again.

This is the best Christmas ever.

penmeetspage  asked:

ok, I gotta ask about your tags on the inoculation/Ben Franklin post, and what I'm asking is: What??

oh no what did I say. sometimes firefox does a thing where if I start a tag and just hit Enter, instead of using the first tag like a NORMAL, FUNCTIONAL browser, it’ll jump to a random one with a single word in common.

-OH, no, never mind, I remember what I wrote on the Ben Franklin post. Um. @agameofcharades and I once spent an enjoyable…I wanna say “evening” but obviously it was like 11pm-2am, discussing what would happen if the Founding Fathers - and other significant historical figures - somehow returned to modern day life. Ghosts? Minor American Gods-style deities? Just…reanimated by mad science?

Highlights, iirc, included:

  • George Washington gives up. Just…gives up. Starts to lecture and then gives up. Just tries to hide from the mobs wanting him to support their causes or autograph stuff.
  • John Adams starts arguing with people
  • Thomas Jefferson is approached by the Republican Party for an endorsement and at first he’s okay and then he finds out how bizarrely Christian they’ve gotten and he’s like, “…no. No, absolutely not.”
    • someone hands him a biology textbook and he learns we’ve actually figured out an explanation for how people and animals came to be, a non-God explanation, and he starts edging from deism to full-fledged atheism.
  • Adams is outraged, but even more outraged at both the Republicans and Democrats, so they unite to go on a nation-wide speaking tour. Which falls apart when Jefferson tries to start his own party and run for president.
  • Jefferson gets distracted from this by the need to find his own bard, because clearly fucking Alexander Hamilton has one
  • Hamilton refused to leave the Broadway theater for like a week, and when he did it was with Lin Manuel Miranda trailing behind him with a notebook. They’re both very happy with this arrangement.
    • “I have a BARD, Jefferson. Do YOU have a bard? No? Then SUCK IT.”
    • (Hamilton quickly embraced modern slang. LMM taught him.)
  • James Madison is just reading through 200 years of Supreme Court records
  • and, as mentioned, Ben Franklin discovered the Internet, spent like a solid WEEK doing nothing but reading Wikipedia, then somehow got train or airplane tickets to Boston, barged into MIT, and requested they build him a robotic armor suit. They, being absolute science nerds, gleefully took the excuse to not do their assigned work. Franklin spent the time alternately watching and learning about modern scientific advancements, and sleeping with co-eds - and once the armor was finished, he went to go wreak vengeance on FedEx and UPS on behalf of his beloved postal service.
