The blasters used in The Force Awakens were built around functional Airsoft guns that would “kick” when the trigger was pulled, thus giving the actor an indication of when it fired. Furthermore, built-in lights allowed for practical glows and interactive lighting to better simulate a blaster shot and guide effects artists when animating a blaster bolt.

but if sherlock went to hogwarts, you bet he and mcgonagall had the biggest love/hate relationship

she sets him detention at least three times a week because he says things like “you’re a waste of oxygen” to some first year that makes him drop his books on accident in the corridor or because he almost blows up her classroom when he gets bored and he starts casting dangerous, explosive spells when he finishes his work

regardless of all this, she does everything and anything to advance him to a fifth year transfiguration class because he keeps whinging about how bloody easy this third year work is and that he’s not an idiot and his brain cells are decreasing in numbers as he hears this kid next to him trying to complete the task he finished a half hour ago

and sometimes sherlock just creeps down from the ravenclaw tower at like three in the fucking morning just to knock at her door and wave around evidence, because hah! i fucking told you there was a flaw in this technique! and mcgo knows she should give him detention for being out past curfew but she’s just too busy trying to hide her pride and fussing over the fact that he hasn’t slept for the last two days

and because mcgonagall bumped sherlock up to fifth year transfig, he gets seated at the back of her class with gryffindor team captain john watson, who mcgonagall is fond of, too, but not nearly as much as she’s fond of sherlock

and she knows he and sherlock will get along and she needs sherlock to befriend someone responsible like john watson, someone that will tell him to slow down when he’s racing ahead far too fast for even his brain to handle, someone to nag at him to eat a proper meal every once in a while and chide him to sleep somewhat regularly. and she’s just concerned for sherlock because for the three years he’s been there, he’s never seemed to have made any proper friends, and he’s been going through this entire “i’m a high functioning sociopath” phase (it’s NOT a phase, professor! it’s who i am!)

and john and sherlock get along wonderfully, and soon it’s almost as if they’re one person. mcgonagall is pleased when she finds out they’ve become inseparable and even more so when the news starts to spread like wildfire: john watson and sherlock holmes are dating

and everyone claims that mycroft holmes was their favourite, when they’re all a tad older and mycroft’s minister for magic and sherlock’s a consulting auror and john his partner in crime and an excellent healer, but mcgonagall is firm with her preference for sherlock holmes, ever since that arrogant boy sat down in her class and challenged her knowledge of her own subject

and years later, she’s the very first person sherlock puts on the guest list for his and john’s wedding, because god knows how much she’s done for him


just mcgonagall loving a kid as much as she loved the marauders, and that kid driving her mad and that kid being sherlock holmes dammit

Angelica: What’s the situation here?

Eliza: This is my boyfriend Alex, and this is Alex’s boyfriend John…Alex is gay, but he’s straight for me, and he’s gay for John, and John’s really gay for Alex. And I hate John.

Hamilton: It’s not that complicated.

Angelica: Oh. Yeah. Sure.
