I don’t talk trash, I talk smack. They’re totally different. Trash talk is all hypothetical like ‘Your mama is so fat she could eat the internet’. But smack talk is happening like right now like you’re ugly and I know it for a fact cause I got the evidence right here.

Dear Prongs,

No surprise, your and Lily’s son turned out to be the best kid in the world. Not exactly sure how much of a part I had to play in that, but I hope you’re happy and not too deeply regretting making me Harry’s godfather instead of Moony. I’d say I’ll try to keep him out of trouble more, except he does a good job of that himself. He’s a good kid, and a damn good Seeker, too. You’d be proud of Harry, if you were here, Merlin’s Beard you would be proud.

Cheers,
Padfoot

Marauders Appreciation Week [2/7] - One Death Eater

To the Dark Lord,

I know I will be dead long before you read this but I want you to know that it was I who discovered your secret. I have stolen the real Horcrux and intend to destroy it as soon as I can. I face death in the hope that when you meet your match you will be mortal once more.

R.A.B.

Marauders Appreciation Week [5/7] - One Rivalry

The three Black daughters were inseparable as children, but the Wizarding War broke families apart without discrimination. Andromeda’s marriage to a Muggleborn cracked deep fractures in their sisterhood. Bellatrix, the eldest, went mad with the belief that pureblood supremacy must be imposed. Andromeda, the middle sister, tried to put as much distance as possible between herself and the bloodshed. All the while, Narcissa, the youngest, only wanted to keep her family together. As a trio, the Black sisters had intelligence, power, and cunning. Apart, the filthy war would ruin them all. 

Marauder+Lily Headcanons

Happy birthday, pranksterprongs! Kelly, here are some Marauder headcanons for you!!! (I picked Marauder headcanons to break in my new url; I used the be thereallz.)

  • Remus felt like a danger to his dorm-mates, and was hesitant to hang out with them after class. After seeing them successfully start a midnight game of Six-Bludger Quidditch in March of their First Year (which is, incidentally, why First-Years aren’t allowed brooms), he decided he couldn’t possibly do any more damage.
  • During holidays, the Potters, Lupins, and Pettigrews would meet up at various Wizarding location in Europe “so that the boys can play, and we can catch up,” and Sirius would often stay at one of their houses for a few days so he could come too. (His mother and father were disgusted by the idea of sitting down for lunch with a Muggle woman {Remus’ mother}.)
  • When they realised Snape knew–or was about to find out–about Remus’ “furry little problem”, Sirius and Peter bought and set loose in the castle several wild jackrabbits.
  • Since Third Year, Lily had weekly tutoring session with Sirius in Muggle Studies. (“Yeah, I understand the teacher just fine, but I really wanna get ahead!”)
  • Remus had aspired to be a Professor at Hogwarts since McGonagall showed him just what a Professor could be, after an event Sirius, James, and Peter knew better than to ask about.
  • Peter and Remus used to switch out James’ glasses with fake ones. It’d be hours till he’d notice something was wrong.
  • In his Fifth Year, James changed the shade of the Slytherin emeralds in the hourglass a little bit every day for three months… eventually resulting in there being two Ravenclaw hourglasses. (Lily thought this was amusing. Snape did not…resulting in a week of silence between the two.)
  • Lily and James fell deeply in love very quickly after their third date. At least, Lily fell in love after their third date. James was already head-over-heels.
  • James had known Lily’s parents for all of seven months as their daughter’s boyfriend before confirming with them it was all right for him to propose at what Muggles saw a ridiculously early age. They thanked him for asking and being respectful of Muggle values and tradition, but Lily was “very much a witch by now, and I mean that in the best way, so you do what you do”.
  • Lily absolutely refused to have food cooked in her house by magic, so she was the main chef as soon as she left Hogwarts. James was disgusted by the idea of cleaning by hand, so he cleaned everything by magic as soon as he left Hogwarts.
  • Peter didn’t drink anything the night he gave Lily and James’ position away.
  • James never regretted his decision to send Lily with Harry, not even as he saw the streak of green light hurdling at him.
  • Lily only wanted to save Harry, because she knew, the moment she had heard James’ body fall, she was as good as dead.
  • Sirius had not planned to murder Peter. He wanted Harry. When that was denied, he felt he had no other choice. He didn’t plan to kill him with his wand. Magic is the root of all evil was something he thought to himself quite often.
  • Remus found out all of this by reading the newspaper. After the funeral, which took place on the second of November, he went to Dumbledore, looking for Harry (I mean–I’m his next-of-kin, aren’t I?), only to be informed, however kindly and gently, that a werewolf was no acceptable father to a beautiful, human baby boy. Not even if there was no else on the planet who loved him.
