  • Leo:that one hot and fun aunt who takes you shopping and to cool little cafes. also one of the most caring ones who you can vent to
  • Virgo:the mum
  • Libra:that cute aunt who's super ditzy but also really smart. will take you for long walks and talk about anything. guaranteed that you'll have a good time with them
  • Scorpio:the angry older cousin who watches porn & screams at you for being in their bedroom
  • Sagittarius:the playful younger cousin
  • Capricorn:that one uncle who's rich and kinda famous, also a workaholic and has no time for family
  • Aquarius:the innocent dad whose plans get turned down by kids bc he's lame, but tries really hard to make an effort with family
  • Pisces:the whiny younger sibling who's secretly the devil that everyone loves and fawns over.

Rupert kicked off his handmade Eastern European tennis shoes and sat down to a feast of frankfurters boiled in ramen slush.

It was one of his favourite creations—so much so he’d given it pride of place in his self-published book of hotdog recipes (‘No buns, no fun’) courtesy of a pull-out centrefold.

Rupert had sunk a lot of his parent’s money into this book. He knew he had their unquestioning support but he knew they’d be disappointed if it didn’t do the figures he’d presented during the pitch in their living room.

Luckily he’d saved a fair amount on production costs by doing all his own photography. He’d done a half GCSE in photography some years back and it showed.

The larger frankfurter emerging from the soup, tinier hotdogs crawling all over it like they were suckling from invisible processed pork nipples?

All Rupert’s own idea.

All of it.

A recent trip for Jon Mortimer bought him to our Dawson Denim workshop for his personal film and photography project “The Workshop” which features independent makers. Here are some of the fantastic images he caught of us.

Jon Mortimer now based in Berlin first picked up a camera when he was thirteen. A Kodak Disc camera given to him by his my Mum and Dad. He has since worked with great photographers like “Annie Leibovitz, Patrick Demarchelier, Tim Brett Day, Corinne Day and David Sims. From Click Jon moved on to the world of freelance assisting and then took the leap into his own world of Photography thanks to the help and belief of Lulu Anderson, then of The Saturday Telegraph Magazine. Jon now works for The Independent, The Observer, Der Spiegel, Intersection, Vanity Fair and various advertising clients.”

A list of things I currently love

Thanks where-is-your-blood-orange-scarf for tagging me - I guess I’ll see you tomorrow at college!

One song - Love Will Have Its Sacrifices by Soles (recently binge watched Carmilla - the web series - and it’s fantastic)

Two movies - watched The Pianist recently and it was v good, also watched Angels and Demons which was so full of conspiracy theories. Dan Brown must lead an intense life.

Three TV shows - Elementary, Criminal Minds and Empire.

Four people - mum, dad, my sister Annabel (just turned 15!) and… I guess Lucy for tagging me in this post? :)

Five books - this is really hard… I’ll say Skin Game by Jim Butcher (the latest Dresden Files book, loved it), The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater (an all time fave author), Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas (seriously go read it!), If I Stay by Gayle Forman (heartbreaking) and To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han.

I tag skybladestudios & serpentardapoudlard to do the same!

LITERALLY JUST IMAGINE FUCKING TEDDY LUPIN DECKED OUT IN HIS HUFFLEPUFF ROBES WITH THE HEAD BOY BADGE ON IT WITH HIS HOT BLUE HAIR AND THIS BIG BOY SEVENTEEN YEAR OLD SMIRK AND SMILE AS HE CROSSES HIS ARMS AND WATCHES LITTLE ELEVEN YEAR OLD JAMES SIRIUS POTTER BRAVELY WALK TO THE HAT AND SIT DOWN AND HEARING THE VOICE RING OUT GRYFFINDOR. AND TEDDY POUTS AND GOES ‘DAMN’ BUT HE WATCHES PROUDLY AS HIS YOUNGER FREAKIN BROTHER RELATED OR NOT WALKS TO THE GRYFFINDOR TABLE AND SITS DOWN WITH AN AWE FILLED FACE. AND HE WHIRLS AROUND TO WAVE FRANTICALLY AT TEDDY AND TEDDY GRINS AND WAVES BACK AND STICKS HIM A THUMBS UP BECAUSE ‘GOOD JOB, JAMES. MUM AND DAD’LL BE PROUD.’

  • Teddy calls Harry dad one day and he doesn’t really know what to say.
  • Teddy Lupin crying when someone accidentally lets it slip that his biological parents are dead.  He’s 4 and the thought never occurred to him that Ginny and Harry weren’t actually his parents.  Harry holds him until he stops crying.
  • They figure out that now’s good a time as any to bring out old photos of Remus and Tonks.  They substitute bedtime with any old stories they remember from their Hogwarts days.
  • “I can still call you Mum and Dad right?”
  • Harry and Ginny waiting until Teddy’s about 6 years old to start having their own kids.  
  • Sirius’ spoiling godfather nature is evident in Harry because he spoils the boy beyond belief.  
  • When James Sirius is born, Teddy vows to protect him and be the best brother ever.
  • The first couple of months after they bring him home from the hospital are pure murder.  Harry asks, “How do you turn him off?!”
  • One day when Harry and Ginny are too tired to function, James Sirius begins his crying routine.  Teddy walks by the room before he gets too loud and starts changing his hair color among other things.  Harry comes into the room to see Teddy leaning into James’ crib with the latter laughing for the first time ever.
  • Edward Remus Lupin is sorted into Hufflepuff without a moment of hesitation from the sorting hat.
  • The marauders each hand Tonks 5 galleons apiece.
