Chapter Fourteen of After The Tournament

What if Remus and Sirius realised Harry was being abused? What if all Dumbledore’s careful plans were pulled apart by the power he relied on most of all?

After the Triwizard Tournament, a traumatised Harry admits he can’t go back to Privet Drive. Sirius and Remus refuse to submit to Dumbledore’s plan and take him back to Grimmauld Place with them, where they must learn how to live together, how to care for one another, and how to trust one another. After so long, can they build a family together? Will they even have a chance when a war rages outside their door? And can the prophecy ever be fulfilled?


Damn, these just keep getting longer. I can’t believe I’m only up to Harry’s birthday, what the hell?!?! Oh well, more story? Yay? Enjoy!

stop treating todoroki like a stupid fuck pls

oohhh my goddd y’all todoroki didn’t grow up in a cave. the boy lived with an abusive father for years, he was abused, he’s socially awkward but he’s not a reckless idiot. did y’all sleep on his entire arc

and listen, as much as i love todo//deku myself, he didn’t blindly rush to midoriya’s location when he received that mass text, he knew something was wrong & was the first and only one of midoriya’s contacts to figure out that the boy was in trouble

“all you did was mass-send your location pin to all your contacts”

actually, let’s go back to the very beginning of the series:

his very first line shows us that he’s….. not… dumb?

AND (manga spoiIers ahead) DID Y’ALL FORGET ABOUT THIS?

AND THIS?

can you tell that i’m sick of abuse victims being mischaracterised as dumb by their fandoms?

OH, AND HE HAS A SENSE OF HUMOUR. HE’S STOIC MOST OF THE TIME, BUT HE’S NOT INCAPABLE OF MAKING JOKES OR UNDERSTANDING THEM??

plus, for some mysterious reason everyone seems to be forgetting that he ranked 5th out of 20 in the end term written exam? (midoriya was 4th) hmmhhm

hell, when midoriya asks todoroki what he’d do with kouda, he straight up gives advice that i’m 100% certain comes from a personal standpoint:

todoroki knows how to express himself. he knows how his actions influence others, what impression he gives off. HE’S NOT DENSE.

and my dudes. even if you’re gonna write him as a lovestruck fool in fics: being in love means you can sometimes make irrational decisions or act flustered. it doesn’t mean you Suddenly lose half of your braincells.

MHHHHMM CONCLUSION: being socially awkward as a result of years of abuse doesn’t mean you’re “not with the times”. todoroki has a phone. he understands sarcasm. he gets jokes. he knows what an emoji is. he can communicate face-to-face with someone. he gets social cues. he’s an excellent fighter, analyser and strategist. 

so stop treating him like a stupid fuck.

This week’s classes got me productive !

Downtown chillin’

Fave trio tbh.

Dorian: Daggers, amatus? Either you are here because you suspect an assassination attempt, or you are the assassin yourself.

Varlen: Well that depends… are you happy to see me?

Dorian: An interesting question. Or perhaps a threat. Either way… yes. Maker, yes.

Because this mod gave me immense emotions about Dorian and Varlen eventually reuniting in Tevinter, and now I can finally play pretend… 

chris hemsworth will literally be the death of me

i woke up around 3 or so this morning, groggy from meds (i have a head cold fml), and noticed my phone wasn’t on. so i plug it in, get it powered up, and head over to youtube so i can put on a game grumps playlist (danny and arin are comforting leave me alone) to help me fall back to sleep

then i turn over to lie on my other side, and as i’m getting myself situated, i open my eyes fully to see this 

at some point during the night, my thor cardboard cutout blew over and stayed there, looming over me all edward cullen style………..

i don’t know how i managed not to scream - my youngest daughter was sleeping beside me, so maybe it was some innate maternal thing but

jesus fucking chris i nearly had a stroke

and that’s how i started my morning

Raise your hand if you love Harry Styles for some reason other than “his hair, his clothes, his famous friends and his wealthy lifestyle”. Feel free to note.

these two need a Good Talk but i have a soft spot for them
