I just really want a kind of emo, grunge, “it’s not a phase mom” Albus. Like the whole 9 yards: he grows out his hair, starts wearing eyeliner, paints his finger nails. He goes all out, so much so that he starts to look like a young Sirius Black.
Just imagine cute little emo Albus walking into Hogwarts for his 5th year. And McGonagall seeing him and is kinda like oh how nice and then doing a double take. Because she swears she just saw her favorite member of the Black family stroll by. From then on it takes all of her will power not to call him Sirius.
AND THEN…. We have Scorpius just as adorable and warm as always. And so you’ve got your resident book nerd, cardigan wearing tall boy and his cute adorable emo bf walking around holding hands and what does that equal???
So McGonagall’s going slightly crazy thinking why in the hell have Remus and Sirius switched house robes and has to reel herself back to reality.
He wears all black, hates coffee, but still drinks it, and would take sleep over any other activity. He can slay daemons and monsters like a God damn houdini-ninja, but he can’t adult for shit. He’s overly dramatic, but somehow still socially awkward as fuck, and he is a legitimate prince of darkness in almost every sense of the phrase. Even down to the meaning of his name.
He is such a gift, dude. Such a dorky blessing to this world.
