next-gen

honestly though hermione and ron would be the best parents ever

  • ron reading babbitty rabbitty and the tale of the three brothers and basically all of beedle the bard with just the right voices and funny inflections every bedtime
  • hermione ensuring that her children know the classic muggle fairy tales–with her own twist ofc–”now rosie, what does sleeping beauty teach us about the history of females and their status within literature?” 
  • ron tucking the kids in with a warm glass of milk and cookies; “never underestimate the value of good food, hugo”
  • hermione flipping pancakes in the morning in the shape of spell movements (”swish and flick, darlings! you too, ronald”)
  • ron taking rose out for her first broomstick ride while hugo clutches hermione’s hand fearfully
  • the kids growing up to saturday morning rituals of quidditch games with the Weasley cousins and sunday afternoon pot roasts with Grandma Weasley (”grandma, i’m full!” “nonsense!”)
  • holidays at the grangers’ in australia, ron making sure that they go hiking on every single nature preserve (”there’s no way that thing’s not magicked up, hermione, look at its stomach” “ronald, how many times do i have to tell you about the bloody kangaroo???”)
  • hermione coming home from a long day at work, ready to topple over, only to find ron, the kids, and a scrumptious steak dinner ready to go
  • ron taking first rose and then hugo with him to the joke shop and buying ice cream as a special treat and strolling down diagon alley, smiling and waving at everyone who knows the local shop proprietor
  • hermione taking them to gringotts, showing them the ins and outs of money, teaching them to value and save
  • both parents cementing their children’s open mindedness with exposure to both wizarding and muggle worlds, trying their best to make sure they understand the beauty and importance in both
  • the first time a boy pushes rosie on the playground and runs away, ron leaps up, furious, only to stand openmouthed as hermione races to the boy, sits him down, and looks on approvingly as rosie demands an apology and proud hermione rounds up all the kids for a lesson on expressing their feelings healthily (”not everyone has the emotional range of a teaspoon, ron” “hermione, are you ever going to let that–” “nope”)
  • wild car rides with ron at the helm, hermione clutching on to the seat rest with a firm look of disapproval and slight terror
  • ron and hermione trying their best to protect their children from the fame and paparazzi every day, refusing to allow them to be photographed; “my children make their own future, thank you very much” (hermione still keeps tabs on rita skeeter ofc)
  • yet never hiding their scars, “mudblood” and tentacle marks alike, answering the children’s questions readily and without reserve, because they have a right to know, to understand their history as a family and as a society
  • the house always bulging with books, food, and laughter
  • ron and hermione telling rose and hugo each and every day how much they love them, how precious and wonderful and smart and amazing they are
  • hugs always, everywhere and anywhere
  • yummy snacks and meals readily supplied by a doting grandmother and father
  • rose and hugo growing up, nurtured by love, shaped by wisdom, taught with compassion and fairness and trust
  • ron and hermione doing their best to raise their children to smile and not scowl, to be accepting and reasonable and kind always, to live their joyful childhood that was cut so short, praying and hoping and trying to make sure that, god forbid, nothing like their terrors will ever happen again
  • making mistakes and stumbling, but doing it all together with giggles and apologies and kisses
  • just hermione and ron as mum and dad, who fought for peace and live in it, thankful every day for the world they were able to create for their children.

Most of these actors are too old, some of the edits are still messy but I’m tired of staring at them on photoshop, and we’re never going to agree on houses for everyone BUT I think I should get a solid B for effort. (list of actors can be found here)

Teddy Lupin’s popular tattoo parlour moves to Diagon Alley, right next to Victoire Weasley’s flower store

Diagon Alley Refurbishment | New Tattoo Parlour and Flower Store Open

Latest in Diagon Alley’s spree of new store openings are Edward Lupin’s tattoo parlour and Victoire Weasley’s flower store.

Tedstatts has moved from its previous Holborn location, some say, in order for owner and tattoo artist Lupin to be near florist Weasley, whom he is dating. 

Weasley’s flower store La Serre (The Greenhouse) opened on Tuesday with much fanfare, as the entire Weasley clan came down to celebrate. Uncles George and Ronald of Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes supplied mini fireworks. Parents Fleur and Bill personally set up the decorations.

Some awkwardness was caused when Scorpius Malfoy, son of Malfoy Corp CEO Draco, arrived on the scene. However, attention was soon diverted by a minor explosion of firewhiskey bottles. Culprit Seamus Finnigan maintains it was an accident. Malfoy was later seen sneaking out the store with Weasley’s cousin Rose.

Also spotted: Lupin having a quiet yet giggly conversation with godfather Harry Potter at the back of the store; Weasley and aunt Ginny weaving daisies into uncle Ronald’s hair with their wands; aunt Hermione Granger knocking over a pot of orchids in a violent fit of laughter.

I AM NEXT GEN TRASH OKAY OKAY YEAH I GET IT

okay, so yeah, fan cast ( i told myself I would’t do one of these, but I was in a mood and yeah)

*I have another face claim for Lily; her name is Natalya Rudakova, but there isn’t much stuff to work with for her. She’s my icon though. 

** I have another face claim for Albus; Skylar Gisondo, who played Nick in the most recent Night At The Museum movie. He looks like a beautiful blend of Harry and Ginny.

*** Not a solid claim.

**** Not a solid claim.

***** Not a solid claim, since Louis would totally have his dads long luscious hair.

****** I don’t have a solid face claim for Rose aT ALL. Personally, I believe Rose would be chubby and have poofy hair (like her mum) and there isn’t anybody out there that I could find, so I picked a red haired woman, and she happened to be there. Oops.

For some reason, I tried to cartoonized the Next-gen cast and aligned them according to their real height. 

 idk why I draw anymore. 

Ginny: James, don’t you have something you want to say to your brother..?

James Sirius: I’m sorry I pulled a prank on you

Ginny:…Albus…?

Albus Severus: I’m sorry you’re my brother
