But imagine the Harry Potter characters holding their little teensy second gen babies for the first time? 

  • Imagine Ron wanting to name his daughter Rose because her cheeks are red and soft.
  • Imagine Fleur whispering “Je t’adore, ma petite,” to Victoire or Dominique.
  • Imagine George crying when he meets little Fred for the first time and he can’t bring himself to call him anything but Freddy because Fred is his brother.
  • Imagine Bill admiring his babies and their soft skin and hoping they never have to endure the scars that he now wears.
  • Imagine Ginny whispering to little bitty James II that she promises to teach him to play Quidditch and several years later, she does.
  • Imagine Harry being so happy with Lily Luna because she’s the first baby he’s had with the green eyes that he and his mother share.
  • Imagine Draco kissing his son and naming him Scorpius not because he wanted to follow tradition but because he seems to have stars in his eyes.
  • Imagine Remus being so gentle with Teddy and praying that he’s not a werewolf.
  • Imagine Hermione gasping a little when she holds Hugo because he’s got such a strong grip on her finger even though he’s only a newborn and she knows they’re going to have a very strong mother-son bond.
  • Imagine Angelina vowing to protect her little Freddy and Roxie because even though they’re merely infants, she can’t help but know that there could be lots of injustices because they are mixed race and have slightly dark skin.
  • Imagine Percy melting at the little smile Molly II gives him or the little gurgling noises that Lucy makes.
  • Imagine Astoria humming soft lullabies to Scorpius because he’s crying and it slowly puts him to sleep.
  • Imagine Tonks giggling so much that her eyes water when Teddy’s hair turns from a deep brown to a light pink.
  • Lucy: Rose and Scorpius sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G!
  • Rose: Lucy, shut up!
  • Scorpius: Yeah! Besides we were snogging in a broom closet, not a tree. Silly first year.
  • Rose:
  • Rose: You're not helping.

Molly and Lucy were not quite identical. This was a comfort to their father, a loving but busy man who, flying six times per day to the Ministry and back, would not have had the wherewithal to tell them apart if they had been. And also to their cousins, who knew that this made it harder for the girls to prank them. And also to their grandparents, who would have felt a twinge of unhappiness at discovering two more children who could exchange identities as easily as they exchanged jumpers.

But their favorite Uncle would always pretend that they were.

“So it’s Lolly and Moosy again,” he would say, shaking his head, “Can never tell you apart.”

And although everyone older than the girls knew this was actually a very sad joke to tell, like all stupid family jokes it was only meant to comfort Molly and Lucy, and it did. It was something special and shared between them and Uncle George. To have someone who loved you enough to joke with you and play silly games and give you a rather nonsensical nickname – that meant something.

as you should all know by now my post-series headcanon for percy involves him and audrey separating on good terms when she is pregnant with lucy and percy getting together with oliver because they dated after hogwarts but split up after the battle in deathly hallows etc etc etc i’ve explained it before

well it’s also in my headcanon that they alternate who gets to take the girls around diagon alley every year to get their supplies but they all go as a giant group to board the train when the time comes

Teddy Lupin, greeting everyone he passed in the halls of Hogwarts, his punk exterior not changing his soft heart, especially around Victoire.

Victoire Weasley, wearing Teddy’s leather jacket with pride, her golden hair getting caught on the chrome studs.

Dominique Weasley, who spent hours dying her hair in her dorm, streaks of cherry red and pink adorning her blond hair, only to be changed to bright sapphire the next month.

Louis Weasley, who would only drink tea with perfect French macaroons, not able to choke down the British biscuits, storing boxes of the cookies under his bed, concealed behind a trunk.

James Potter, polishing his broomstick late at night, careful to protect his legacy and to avoid waking his roommates, making sure the wood shined as brightly as the summer sun.

Albus Potter, quietly writing everything down, observing and critical of his world, all in thick flowing ink, holding the pages dear to his silent heart.

Lily Potter, slicing through magazines and pasting pages on her wall, a mural of her views and likes, everything to show off who she really is.

Scopius Malfoy, borrowing Rose’s cat ears for Halloween, wearing them everywhere, the ginger fur a stark difference against his platinum hair, loving the lingering perfume from her skin on the furry headband.

Rose Weasley, reading through every book she can find, absorbing information, and recommending her favorites to her family, forcing Scorpius to read the rest, always enthusiastic about the facts and legends.

Hugo Weasley, always casting charms at school, making pillows float and tarts fly, just to watch the reactions of his friends and family, their smiles full of joy.

Fred Weasley, who would cheer profusely at every Quidditch game, singing at the top of his lungs, high pitched squeals and throaty giggles filling the air.

Roxanne Weasley, sneaking fireworks into Hogwarts, loving the sparks and the fire, all of the color and shine, all against the night sky, a bright spot of life.

Molly Weasley, wearing her the sweaters made by her grandmother, loving the woolly warmth, all of her jumpers in a deep purple, the color of kings and queens alike.

Lucy Weasley, painting with watery paint, all artwork about the light of life, golds and aquas staining her thin fingers.

Lorcan Scamander, who sat on the edge of the lake, absorbing the vaporous water, feeling like a part of nature, a vessel of the world.

Lysander Scamander, loving the feeling of a laugh, the way he was lightened by the phenomena, the euphoria accompanying the giggle.

It’s all the little things that make us who we are.
