seriously though the Harry Potter universe is so beautiful because it is probably the only fictional world where I care with all my heart and soul for so many characters that aren’t just the protagonist and his or her sidekick like I can think of 20 characters off the bat that I would fight u over just to defend their honour

[Upon hearing the noise from the golden egg]

It was someone being tortured!” said Neville, who had gone very white, and spilled sausage rolls over the floor. “You’re going to have to fight the Cruciatus curse!”

Okay, but how can Neville identify the sound of someone being tort-

Oh God.

Oh God.


Neville remembers!

Neville Longbottom, the boy who had to be sent a Rememberall because he’s deemed forgetful, can remember the night that his parents were tortured!

friendly reminder that for harry’s first ever quidditch match neville, ron, seamus, dean, and hermione all made a giant banner that said ‘potter for president’ to surprise him. dean painted a giant lion, and hermione enchanted the letters to change colors (◠‿◠✿)

when harry saw it for the first time on the field “his heart skipped” and “he felt braver” ✧・゚:*✧・゚:* \(◕‿◕✿)/ *:・゚✧*:・゚✧

Characters that need more attention

Regulus Black

  • he probably went trough hell when he began to realize his brother Sirius wasn’t so wrong, and had to see how neglected and despised he was must have scared him so much to do the same
  • but he did it anyway
  • he found out about horcruxes and tried his best to destroy the one he had found
  • he tried his best and didn’t give up until he died at 18 y/o
  • he was that brave and, yes, a slytherin
  • also can you imagine becoming a follower of the worst dark wizard and being around the meanest people, all against your will?

Andromeda Tonks 

  • she was a Black
  • she was part of a rigid family with very strong ideals of superiority and letting go of family traditions is a very hard thing to do
  • she fell in love with a muggle and fought for it despite all the hate she had to deal with
  • she was a member of the Order
  • she raised Tonks, a very comprehensive and kind woman

Nymphadora Tonks

  • she could use all the power she had to manipulate and trick people, but instead she used it to help people and make them laugh
  • isn’t this the sweetest thing ever?
  • she was kind, tolerant and hard working like a Hufflepuff is
  • she was only 7 years older than Harry and was a member of the Order and an auror
  • she understood Remus and loved him despite he was a werewolf
  • she loved him despite he was older, poor and didn’t love himself

Neville Longbottom

  • was raised under a lot of pressure by his grandmother and felt like a failure
  • he had it worse than having dead parents, as he could never get over it, because every time he’d see them, he would be remembered 
  • he was abused so hard by a teacher that Snape was the thing he feared the most when 13 y/o
  • was made fun of during most his life but he was never bitter about it; he instead chose to be so, so kind
  • instead of giving up, he worked harder to overcome everything, and he did it
  • he became the leader of Dumbledore’s army and fought for what he believed in, protecting the students and facing the death eaters, and, despite being a pureblood like they were, he didn’t see others as less than him
  • he stood up in front an army of death eaters and Voldemort himself to make a speech about how wrong they were
  • he began as the weak friend, and became one of Harry’s greatest allies
  • (this is what i call character development)

Remus Lupin

  • became a werewolf at such a young age, and had to face all the prejudice society had, a prejudice present even in his own parents
  • had no friends until the age of eleven and going to school was the best news of his life
  • he wouldn’t stop the marauders from bullying because he was afraid of loosing his friends, but regretted it
  • he was jobless and homeless most of his life, and yet he was the “best teach ever!” in Harry’s and most students opinion
  • he loved Tonks but hesitated to be with her because he wanted to protect her
  • he always put other’s needs in front of his, even if he needed it the most
  • he had all reasons to be bitter, but was a kind man instead
  • when he was finally happy, married with the love of his life and with a baby, he still went to war because he knew Teddy’s generation didn’t deserve to live in a world ruled by Voldemort


  • he was Harry’s first friend ever
  • always invited him for tea and biscuits, and even not knowing how to cook, he did his best so he could host them
  • he always cared about him and wanted to be sure he was safe
  • he loved the animals others called “beasts”, cause he could see the great things about them, and he knew how it felt like to be seen as monster when you’re not
  • he always saw the best in everyone
  • he was with Harry until the end

feel free to add

I have this heartbreaking little head cannon that whenever someone casually brings up that Harry’s sons are named after two marauders, he just smiles proudly and says they were named after three.

People tend to look a tad confused, so he chuckles and pulls out a picture of his children. He points to the blue haired one in the middle, the other three children laughing along with the boy who they’ve never known as anything other than a brother. “That’s my son, Teddy Remus Lupin.”
