Over the course of the books, characters display a variety of reactions to hearing Harry’s name. Even Ron and Hermione are a little awkward at first.

But Molly Weasley’s reaction is very different from any of the other reactions we see, and hints at the role she’ll play in Harry’s life in later books

If you recall, Fred tells Mrs. Weasley that the black-haired boy they had met on the other side of the platform was Harry Potter. At this point, Harry is on the train, so Mrs. Weasley has no idea Harry can hear her through the compartment window.

But instead of the awe, dislike, or curiosity expressed by other characters, Mrs. Weasley’s first reaction is sympathy and concern.

She refers to him as “poor dear” and “poor boy,” and tells Ginny that Harry “isn’t something you goggle at in a zoo.” 

When Fred wonders whether Harry remembers what You-Know-Who looks like, Mrs. Weasley becomes “extremely stern” and forbids Fred from asking Harry about You-Know-Who, saying that Harry doesn’t need to be reminded of something like that on his first day of school.

While the rest of the wizarding world views Harry as the almost mythical boy-who-lived, Mrs. Weasley has always seen Harry as an orphan in need of homemade fudge, hand-knitted jumpers, and a loving family.

Eurus : “no you’re not eurus. we still love you eurus.”


This isn’t the first time Polly’s run away from home. She was nine. She and my mom got in this huge fight and she disappeared for hours- the whole neighborhood was out looking for her.

A finished commission for @mizjoely​!

Sherlock has a bit of a ridiculous rivalry with Molly’s cat over cuddle time in Molly’s lap. Molly thinks it’s endearing but she still teases him about it: “Sherlock for god’s sake, he’s just a cat!”

“Yes but does HE know that?”

This made me laugh so hard when I drew it because Sherlock wrapped up in his sheet looked like some kind of little white butt-bean.

@picklesandsweetpea your commission is coming up next but tumblr won’t let me tag you properly. :(

I think I still have the time to take on a couple more commissions, if anyone is interested: check out this post.

And don’t forget I also have a patreon.

Sherlock: Molly Hooper, would you share this toothbrush holder with me?

Molly: I would love to [hugs Sherlock].

John: [from the back] Did we really need to be here for this?

Mary: Call me crazy but I find it moving.

It’s true that you continue learning about your spouse even many years into the marriage. For instance, I recently learned that at the job my husband had like 15+ yrs ago, the nickname his boss and workmates called him was “Meat.” 😆 Now despite the fact that this was based on him being a young, 6 ft, tan, and really fit guy, (Side note- yay me lol) unfortunately the word “meat” has now triggered a connection in my brain and I CANT STOP THINKING…
