Albus is an old man now, and finally ready to move on. He dies peacefully in his sleep, unafraid because his father’s always told him that there’s no reason to fear death.
When he opens his eyes, the first thing he sees is a face. He’s seen it in pictures before, young and smiling amidst his three best friends, laughing at Albus’s grandparents’ wedding, newspaper clippings showing him as an escaped prisoner. He recognizes this man to be his dad’s godfather, the brave man that Harry’s said grew up in a horrible house and would’ve given his life to keep his best friends safe without a second thought, who lived twelve years with dementors, escaped and was forced to live quietly in his old, dark house, who died so unexpectedly at the hand of his own cousin. He knows that this man is brave and valiant and bold.
In the moment it take him to recognize this, the handsome face cracks into a smug smile. Sirius Black opens his mouth, and Albus is ready, sure he’s going to say something simple and beautiful and wise; and then Sirius says, “Albus Snivellus Potter.”
Imagine children of Hephaestus being born with parts of their bodies being made of metal. It varies how weird or horrific the placement of these parts are. Many children with born with metal limbs build better, more stylish ones for themselves
Imagine children of Aphrodite that are born with the power to change their appearance, but they can’t control it. They change when their emotions are high or just randomly throughout the day. Sometimes they’ll have two different faces and not be able to do anything about it

Imagine children of Athena who physically shut down from information over load; they can’t move, can’t speak, don’t even breathe so their brains can review all the things they know.

Imagine children of Demeter who have flowers and other flora growing out of their bodies. Little roses (thorns and all) growing out of their heads, lilies growing from their shoulders. Sometimes their hair will start turning green
Imagine children of Dionysus with grape juice for blood. When they get older, it ferments and turns to wine. They can will vines to grow out of their bodies, though the grapes on those vines will make anyone else sick

Imagine really cool side effects to being half all powerful God
Request: Can you write a Sirius Black x Reader but the reader is James’ sister and Sirius tries to flirt with the reader and James is all like are you flirting with my sister and Sirius fires back or something? Warning(s): Bar scenes, drinking, swearing, intense hugging(?), major Sirius feels. Honestly, just look at the title. Note: This is my first Marauders’ imagine, so feedback is appreciated.
⇢ A Sirius Black x Reader work where the reader is James’ younger twin sister.
Most brothers preferred to keep their social life separate from their siblings’. James Potter was no exception. Which is why, when Lily and Marlene urged you to meet the Marauders at the bar with them, you fervently declined.
“A bar? Filled to the brim with drunkards? James would never let me out of his sight,” you argued, moving away as Marlene approached you with a tube of lipstick. “I’m not going.”
She crossed her arms, her lower lip jutting out. “Please, Y/N.” Marlene gestured at your attire: Black hot pants and a long sleeved crop top. “You’re already dressed for it.”
You glared down at your outfit, tugging at the hem of your shorts. “I didn’t know you guys chose clothes for me to wear to a bar.”
“What did you think? Your arse is hanging out for tea with the Minister of Magic?”
Lily gave Marlene a warning look as you flushed a bright red. “Don’t listen to her, Y/N. Your arse is not hanging out.” She paused, giving you a once over. “Well…You’ll blend in, at least.”
You groaned, pinching the bridge of your nose. “James is going to kill me.”
“So what?” Marlene interjected. “He’s your brother, not your dad. Who cares what he thinks?”
“I do; he’s my brother.”
A slight snort came out from Lily. “Marlene is right. You’re your own woman. You shouldn’t let the opinion of that arrogant toerag dictate your decisions.”
You and Marlene exchange glances. It was quite obvious that, over the years, James’ crush was becoming less unrequited. And although it was disturbing at first, you quickly accepted the idea that one of your best friends fancied your brother.
“You mean that arrogant toerag you so happen to like?” you said, raising an eyebrow.
Lily raised hers back defiantly. “I don’t like James Potter.”
“Yeah, right,” Marlene scoffed. “That’s like saying Y/N doesn’t have the hots Sirius Black.”
You frowned, ignoring the slight amount of heat rising to your cheeks. “But I don’t.”
Now it was Lily and Marlene who gave each other incredulous looks. It was clear neither of them believed your poorly concealed lie. They knew, no matter how much you denied it, that you had developed a crush on Sirius the moment he gave you a bundle of white flowers for Christmas. Just the thought of his hand brushing against your cheek as he tucked a single flower behind your ear made your butterflies come alive.
“Let’s pretend, for now, that we believe you.” Marlene checked the time. “But in this moment, I hear the firewhisky calling my name. Are you coming?”
“Sirius will be there,” Lily sang.
You threw your head back defeat. “Fine.” You paused. “But not because I want to see Sirius.”

She didn’t know
when it had happened. She wasn’t even sure why
it had happened, but …but suddenly, she noticed; Lily realised she was
paying attention to him. And it was confusing her.
“James is playing
mighty well today, isn’t he?” Marlene said next to her, smiling and cheering
along with the rest of Gryffindor house. She applauded and woo’d loudly when
James brought them another goal.

“You all right,
Lily?” Alice asked on her other side. The girl was showing her support as well,
bundled up in her scarf coloured red and gold, but she was nowhere near as bad
as Marlene (or Sirius standing in front of them) in terms of volume.
“You get them,
Potter!” Sirius yelled, waving his small flag passionately.
“Go James!” Peter
Lily rolled her
eyes and turned to Alice. “I’m fine. It’s just that Black spotted the Snitch
ages ago, but he still hasn’t tried to catch it yet.”
Alice blinked. “That’s
curious. I wonder why he would wait.”

was the fact that she’d noticed at all. Since when had Regulus Black been on
“And there goes a
point to Slytherin! About time, that. Suppose it can’t have been easy for poor
Travers to perform today, I hear his girlfriend broke up with him last weekend.
Speaking of performance, I hear that was part of the reason why she dumped him—”
Professor McGonagall roared.
Bertha Jorkins said, and resumed commenting the game.
“What an absolute idiot,”
Marlene said, looking somewhat disgusted. “Doesn’t she realise Travers would
kill her for that if he could get away with it?”
“She does meet our
house’s criteria of being reckless well enough,” Lily agreed.
“You’re being a
bit hard on her,” said Alice. “I don’t think she knows what—“
“Oh, she knows,”
Lily and Marlene chorused.
“That’s what makes
it worse,” said Marlene.

circling around above the goal posts, giving the impression of boredom, yet
Lily observed the way his back never fully turned toward the left side of the
Quidditch pitch. He was the definition of Slytherin, it seemed. He was
pretending to be something he was not.
What’s he playing at?
She wondered if
her newfound interest in the boy was his doing as well. Did he spike her
pumpkin juice, perhaps? He certainly was clever enough, since he too was a member of the Slug Club and according to
Professor Slughorn he was the one most likely to become the male Slytherin prefect
next year. And he never did act like the other imbeciles she’d seen strutting
around yelling ‘mudblood’ at people. In fact, he minded his own business at all
A part of her

she had then …No, she scolded
herself. Petunia would still have found something else to complain about, even
if she and Severus hadn’t found Dumbledore’s letter.
That was another
thing. The Black sibling rivalry. While Sirius Black wasn’t Lily’s favourite
person, she still felt for his unfortunate family situation. The distance
between him and his brother was predictably a sore spot and she sympathised deeply. However
…It was a fact that the usual instigator of their public rows was Sirius.
Regulus would at most sneer at his brother and friends, but nothing more to
There was a cheer
as Slytherin scored another point, and Lily snapped out of her thoughts– only to
find the person in question looking back at her.
Still perched up
high and elegantly on his broom, Regulus arched an eyebrow her way; his grey
eyes rapidly switching from their usual reserved look to mildly amused. Lily realised
that it must indeed look strange for her to be the only one not fixated on the
other end of the pitch. But still she was reluctant to let her gaze go.
Regulus Black had
somehow wormed his way into her brain and she wanted to figure out why, even if
that meant she had to suffer his smirk.
