imagine: remus lupin, after the events of prisoner of azkaban, silently going up to dumbledore’s office, and throwing a frickin tantrum. “you told me not to pursue it! you told me he was guilty!”

“i did not know,” answers dumbledore, “no more than you did, remus.”

“I - DID - KNOW! I TOLD YOU! I TOLD YOU HE WAS INNOCENT AND YOU TOLD ME TO LET IT GO! you - i - TWELVE YEARS HE ROTTED IN THAT CELL! TWELVE YEARS, AND YOU DID NOTHING! you - you………”

he draws himself up, stops shaking, and takes a deep breath.

“i quit,” he says bluntly, then turns and walks away.

sirius: [rushes over to remus WHO IS LITERALLY TURNING!!!!!]

sirius: remus, my old friend!!!!!! have you taken your potion tonight?

remus, inwardly: WHAT DO YOU THINK, DUMBASS

remus, outwardly: [literally cannot do anything but Turn]

sirius: [grabs remus, wraps his arms around him, their chests flush against each other] YOU KNOW THE MAN YOU TRULY ARE 

remus: [obviously knows the man he is, obviously cannot respond to sirius’ ridiculous rambling because he IS TURNING] 

sirius: THIS HEART IS WHERE YOU TRULY LIVE [pushes his hand against remus’ chest desperately as if the power of his love can somehow stop all of this from happening] THIS HEART HERE 

remus: [is now a foot taller than sirius and is Struggling not to hurt him]

sirius: THIS!!! FLESH!!!! IS!!! ONLY!!!! FLESH!!!!!! [continues to keep his arms wrapped around remus as he keeps turning] REMUS!!!! 

remus: [howls, turns completely into The Wolf, flings sirius high into the air] 

me: hello 911 yes sirius black is a Gay Fool 

GUYS I JUST REALIZED SOMETHING REALLY REALLY IMPORTANT ABOUT BABY LONGBOTTOM

NEVILLES BOGART MANIFESTED AS SNAPE BECAUSE SNAPE FORCES NEVILLES WORST FEAR UPON HIM.

NEVILLE WASNT AFRAID OF SNAPE.

NEVILLE WAS AFRAID OF WHAT SNAPE REPRESENTED TO HIM.

SNAPE MADE NEVILLE FEEL INADEQUATE AND LIKE HE WAS A FAILURE.

NEVILLES GREATEST FEAR WAS BEING INADEQUATE 

AND IT TOOK ME FUCKING YEARS TO REALIZE THIS

HERMIONE SEES A FAILED TEST BECAUSE SHES AFRAID OF FAILING

NEVILLE HAS SOMEONE THAT ACTUALLY GIVES HIM AN EXTREME FEELING OF NOT BEING GOOD ENOUGH

SOMEONE THAT SHOVES THAT FACT DOWN HIS THROAT

SOMEONE THAT PROVIDES HIM WITH EXTREME SHAME

AND THEN WHEN HE CASTS RIDIKULUS AND HIS GRANDMOTHERS CLOTHES APPEAR ON SNAPE EVERYONE LAUGHS

BUT NEVILLE SMILES

BECAUSE HE JUST SHAMED THE THING THAT SHAMES HIM

HE BELITTLES THE OBJECT THAT BELITTLES HIM

AND HES PROUD OF HIMSELF BECAUSE HE SHOULD BE PROUD

point of the story is Neville never feared a teacher he feared the feeling the teacher gave him

The Signs + Moments in Prisoner of Azkaban

Note: There is a lot of Sirius Black and Remus Lupin mocking. This is because I love them dearly.

Aries:
The moment when Ron hits Draco in the face with a crocodile heart.

Taurus: The moment when Oliver Wood tells McGonagall he doesn’t care if the firebolt throws Harry off, as long as he catches the snitch first.

Gemini: The moment when Peter Pettigrew tries to touch Sirius, and Sirius says, “There’s enough filth on my robes without you touching them.”

Cancer: The moment when Harry asks Remus if he knew Sirius, and Remus asks sharply, “What gives you that idea?” Remus has never seen that man in his LIFE and that is PREPOSTEROUS and APPALLING.

Leo: The moment when Sirius goes, “THERE’LL BE ONLY ONE MURDER HERE TONIGHT” instead of I don’t know, maybe, “Harry, I’m not out to kill you.”

Virgo: The moment when everyone is hanging out and having fun in the common room and Oliver Wood is in the corner, muttering to himself and prodding his model of a quidditch field.

Libra: The moment when Sirius Black is casually mentioned and Remus Lupin literally drops his briefcase in response. Subtle.

Scorpio: The moment when Harry gets caught with the Marauder’s Map and Remus saves his ass, followed by “These mapmakers would have wanted to lure you out of school. They’d think it extremely entertaining.” and “Do you know them?” “We’ve met.”

Sagittarius: The moment when Sirius rides off in the moonlight on Buckbeak and I’m not crying, you are.

Capricorn: The moment(s) when Draco finds out Harry fainted on the train and proceeded to make impressions of him fainting every single time he saw him. For the rest of the entire book.

Aquarius: The moment when Remus shoots chewed gum up Peeves’ left nostril.

Pisces: The moment when Harry catches the snitch and Oliver Wood hugs him and starts literally sobbing into his neck.
