  • Professor McGonagall: *facepalms*
  • Dumbledore: Petunia, please treat this boy as your own son. He was your sister's only child, and deserves love and compassion. He's kind of been through a lot, what with the orphaning and being attacked by the most evil wizard of our generation and all. We in the magical community really appreciate your place as his sole blood kin, and we trust that you'll care for him as you would any child in such a painful situation.
  • *Ten years later*
  • Dumbledore: I mean, you didn't straight up murder him, so

anonymous asked:

What are your thoughts on the one and only Vaike?

OL TEACH?! I like him he’s good and fun and his supports with Cherche are so cute. Offering to build Minerva a place to live with the family like…what the fuck man how daRE you be that sweet???? And understanding??? WHAt???

Kind of a tropey sorta character but that support won me over by a surprising amount.

And also Gerome looks like a pretty Vaike anyway so might as well make the kid blond too lmaooo.

Before It's too Late - Weasley Twins Imagine (requested)

Heavy rain covered the Quidditch field making it practically impossible for (y/n) to see her opponents. Drops of water pelted the players with massive force, sending a few tumbling downwards. Fear rose as (y/n) watched a friend of her’s plummet to the sandy ground. The boy stood up and relief washed over her.
The golden snitched whizzed past her ear. Harry and the Ravenclaw seeker raced neck and neck after the tiny item. (y/n) paid no mind, focusing back on her own game. Though it would’ve helped if she had watched where she stood because no even a minute later, a Ravenclaw crashed full force into (y/n) propelling her off the wooden broom spiraling into the grass with a thud.
“(y/n)!” The Weasley twins shouted in sync rushing low to the surface. Harry had caught the snitch and Gryffindor won. Fred hopped from his broom, running over to the pale girl. His heart clenched tightly assuming the worst. George stayed to the side scared to burst into tears seeing the one he loved in pain.
“Move, move!” McGonagall shooed the crowed children away from (y/n), bending down to check the harm done. Fred and George peaked around the teacher, looking for any sign of consciousness. Minerva placed a hand on (y/n)’s arm analyzing the breakage. (y/n) moaned in agony as the team felt a weight lift off their shoulders. At least she wasn’t dead.
“Fred and George Weasley!” The twins stepped forward and McGonagall continued, “please take Miss. (l/n) to Madam Pomfrey. It looks to only be a broken bone and possible a rib, but she better have a closer look.” Fred and George obeyed the orders, wrapping (y/n)’s arms around their shoulders carring her to the hospital wing of Hogwarts.
George cleared his throat wearily once they were out of sight and Fred shook slightly. (y/n) was too weak to say anything and decided to mention it later. Suddenly Fred spoke up.
“Geez (y/n), you gave us quite a scare back there.” He chuckled lightly.
“Yeah almost thought we’d lost ya!” It was now George’s turn to address the situation but there was more he and Fred both wanted to bring up.
“Listen there’s something we need to tell you.” (y/n) nodded waiting for them to continue but nothing came. Using all he strength she managed to open her left eye then her right. George and Fred seemed to be having a wordless conversation using facial expressions and she wasn’t catching on. Finally George took his chance to explain.
“(y/n) I- well we have sorta had this-“
“Crush on you for a while and today made us realize”
“We need to tell you before it’s too late, y’know.”
They both took a deep breath and finished off with,
“So would you want to go on a date with us later?” (y/n) blushed greatly bringing herself to nod yet once again. The boys cheered softly, high fiving each other in congratulations.


Alright, I’m caught up! This one’s pretty long cuz I spent most of it on Lucy and Levy being cute besties and not Nalu being Nalu, but I think the end’s pretty cute! If anyone has AU ideas, btw, feel free to message me cuz I’m out of ideas right now, particularly for Nalu Week.

“Lu-chan, why do you let them treat you like that? You could easily beat them all up! Put all those self-defense skills to good use!” Levy huffed in frustration as she fell back onto the bed.

Lucy rolled her eyes but smiled. “Levy-chan, then I’d be bullying them, since they have no chance at all. Besides, I don’t wanna draw more attention to myself.”

“Any more than you’ve already drawn now that everyone knows who you are?” Levy pointed out dryly.
