And tears came before he could stop them, boiling hot then instantly freezing on his face, and what was the point in wiping them off or pretending? He let them fall, his lips pressed hard together, looking down at the thick snow hiding from his eyes the place where the last of Lily and James lay, bones now, surely, or dust, not knowing or caring that their living son stood so near, his heart still beating, alive because of their sacrifice and close to wishing, at this moment, that he was sleeping under the snow with them.

“But they were not living, thought Harry: They were gone. The empty words could not disguise the fact that his parents’ moldering remains lay beneath snow and stone, indifferent, unknowing. And tears came before he could stop them, boiling hot then instantly freezing on his face, and what was the point in wiping them off or pretending? He let them fall, his lips pressed hard together, looking down at the thick snow hiding from his eyes the place where the last of Lily and James lay, bones now, surely, or dust, not knowing or caring that their living son stood so near, his heart still beating, alive because of their sacrifice and close to wishing, at this moment, that he was sleeping under the snow with them.”

James Potter 1960-1981

James was tall, lean, and had untamable dark hair. This was worsened by him always running his hands through it to make it look as if he’d just dismounted from a broomstick. He had hazel eyes framed by round glasses and was a star Chaser for the Gryffindor Quidditch team. James was also helplessly in love with Head Girl Lily Evans.

“What’s the matter, Evans? Thought I was gonna leave without giving you a goodbye kiss?”

“I’d just as soon kiss the giant squid!”

“I can arrange that. You could use a good kiss!”

A Hogwarts version of the south passage scene, featuring James Potter and Lily Evans. Because no one call tell me that those two didn’t argue loudly in the corridors to the amusement of everyone around them.

We are not soulmates because our hands intertwine perfectly or because our kisses are like fireworks. We are not soulmates because we never argue or fight. We are not soulmates because we hold each other perfectly or understand each other without speaking. We are not soulmates because of any of those things. But we are soulmates for sure. Because even when we argue or fight, we will never ever give up on each other. Soulmates don’t have to be perfect. They just have to hold on, and never let go.
