Between Harry’s love of Quidditch; his propensity to get into certain kinds of mischief like duels; his & Ron’s tendency to try to get Hermione to do their homework for them; & his decision to become an auror (one of the “brawniest” career choices out there that also has the “helping other people” aspect that I think appealed to him), I consider Harry to be a jock. It honestly puzzles me that other people don’t seem to see it – & often even vehemently deny it when somebody points it out.
so i’ve been making monthly fic recs for a full year now! that’s so insane to think about honestly. thanks for all the support! my first monthly fic rec was for april 2016 and it had 10 fics on it. now they have upwards of almost 30 fics. that’s character development. anyway…
here are a bunch of fics I’ve enjoyed and loved reading throughout the month of march. I recommend that you read these great fics in april, if you haven’t already.
(all fics with a star are my favorites and if there are two stars then it was a favorite favorite)
What do you do when your best friend asks you and your (now) ex to be the best men at his destination wedding? You can either tell him the truth, tell him you’re not together anymore, and deal with the consequences, or you can pretend you’re still together and roll with it, just pray you don’t spiral. Fake it ‘til you make it. You know, for the sake of the wedding.
What happens when all you had, all you loved, all you held dear is viciously ripped away from you? When your inner core, once filled with love and hope and light, blackens to raw, dark hatred?
What happens when your soul is hopelessly consumed and no matter how hard you try, no matter how hard you attempt to shake yourself out, to rid your tormented mind of the opaque feelings that plague you, all you can see, all you can feel, all you can want is…
A modern adaption of The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. A tragic tale of timeless undying love, merciless revenge, and selfless sacrifice.
A pet peeve of mine is the fandom constantly describing Harry as short and not attractive because excuse u Harry James Potter is supposed to look exactly like his dad, but with his mother’s eyes and if you recall, James potter is supposed to be 1) attractive 2) tall
By the age of 17, Harry looks just like his father and is the same height as him
HARRY JAMES POTTER IS TALL DARK AND HANDSOME FIGHT ME
A termination report on Harris described him as “a very bright young man who is likely to succeed in life.” A B-plus student, he often flashed that intellect in classes. His favorite, friends say, was composition class, taught just after the lunch period by Jason Webb.
“Any time Mr. Webb would ask us all questions on Monday, we’d all be slouching down, but Eric would always answer,” says classmate LaPlante. “Mr. Webb would ask, ‘What’s a preposition?’ and Eric would know. Or, 'What’s the meaning of a reading from Shakespeare?’ and Eric would know.
"I just remember him as the kid in the corner with his hand up all the time.” Webb declined to comment.
Out in the student parking lot, Harris would sit on the trunk of his car at lunch time and joke with Klebold or other friends. When LaPlante walked by, he would playfully throw french fries at her.
But inside Columbine’s hallways or in the cafeteria, Harris and the other trench-coaters were harassed by jocks, friends say.
Harry and Dean becoming Bi Besties and talking about cute football players and being supportive and caring and totally 'accidentally' making each other physically bump into their crushes at school like yessss (dean pushing harry @ Cedric tho lmao)
Honestly this is just golden, i love Dean and Harry being Bi Bros™.
Harry showing Dean quidditch players he finds hot and Dean showing football players back. Dean and Harry going to pride together and dressing up in bi flag colours. Dean paints Harry’s face and finger nails as well! Their banner might be slightly breaching the statue of secrecy but nobody can prove it, so it’s okay.
Dean being the only one to notice Harry’s longing gazes on Cedric, because honestly he’s been there. He gets the courage to talk to him about Seamus which causes the great era of Harry attempting to get Seamus and Dean together.
Harry: Oh my god, those pants look great Seamus! I bet they would look even better on Dean’s bedroom floor.
Dean: Are you hitting on Seamus… for me?
It’s eighth year and everyones finally back in Hogwarts. Harry’s decided now that the war’s over, he won’t take any of Dean’s excuses to not talk to Seamus. Honestly, ‘he might be straight’? Harry’s caught Seamus oogling Deans arse so much he’s afraid Seamus’ going to end up burning a hole through Dean’s trousers.
No, he’s determined to get to the bottom of this and finally get his dream couple together. He can’t handle Dean’s pining anymore.
He tells Ron and Neville that they’re having a sleepover in the room of requirement tonight. Seamus is kind of baffled why he and Dean aren’t invited but Dean knows. He sort of wants to kill the boy who lived.
Harry rambles on about how they need Neville to tutor them in Herbology and they must not be disturbed. At all. Dean and Seamus should just stay in the dorms. Yes, he knows they take herbology too but they should wait for their turn.
Dean and Seamus do end up getting together that night and Harry’s beaming with accomplishment and pride when he hears the news. Seamus tells him the chocolates he carefully placed were a nice touch but he’s lactose intolerant.
The next day Harry spots Dean talking to a very shocked Draco Malfoy and smirking right at him.
