That’s A....Name....

Winter 1973, Andromeda’s younger cousin, Sirius, comes to see her and her new baby…

Sirius: What’s her name?

Sirius: Oh I can’t wait to hear it!

Sirius: ….

“ - Nymphadora Tonks, who prefers to be known by her surname only,” finished Lupin.

“So would you if your fool of a mother had called you ‘Nymphadora’” 

-Nymphadora Tonks about why she calls herself “Tonks”

((OOC: I was inspired by so many of the amazing Tonks cosplays that I’ve seen recently and thought of this old text post))

Bill: We decided to try and form type of government between all the houses.

[flashback to the Dream Team gathered in the library]

MC: I vote anarchy.

Charlie: You can’t vote anarchy, MC.

Tonks: Monarchy! Whoever holds the magical sword, Excalibur! *proceeds to pull a sword out from her uniform*

Tulip: Military dictatorship!

Rowan: Democracy!

Penny: Matriarchy.

MC: Oh! How about malarkey!

Rowan: MC, that’s not a type of government. Malarkey is just meaningless talk and nonsense.

Dream Team:

[end up flashback]

Bill: Malarkey won.

@yan-in-ktober ‘s HM Inktober Day 15: Hogwarts Ball

Now I can’t stop thinking about enchanted wizard clothing! A dress with live butterflies that fly on and off the skirt? A suit with a trellis of flowers you’ve grown yourself? Another with a moon that moves like the real moon and stars in the sky? A kimono with real falling snow?

Day Fifteen

The Hogwarts Ball.

Juniper had been planning for months to make certain it was the best experience for everyone going, even those who were cruel to her.

She made sure everyone had an outfit they loved, and sewed them one if they didn’t. She had everything figured out.

Well almost everything.

“What do you mean you don’t have a date?” Penny asked as she nibbled on her sandwich.

Juniper shook her head slightly and swallowed her food before saying “I’m not sure, it doesn’t really matter much to me. I could always bring a card board cut out?”

“NO!!! You will not bring a card board cut out” Penny paused a moment thinking before her eyes lit up with a thought “Why don’t I let the news go out that you dothave a date? I know lots of guys thst would want to go out with the Hogwarts famous Curse Breaker”

Before Juniper could respond Penny shot out of her seat and ran off to get her friend a man.

“Okay then”


Juniper streched out next to Charlie on the ground on a blancket. The two were studying together, trying their best to pass the up coming potions test.

Juniper was staring so intently into her book, so she didn’t notice the group of boys walking up to the pair.

Finally one spoke up “Uh— hi!! I-um- I was wondering if you wanted to go to the ball with me Juniper”

Immediately Charlie turned to the girl as her head bopped up from the book. Her hair was all in her face and her expression was on of panic.

“What? I-I……. sorry, Do I know you?” Juniper asked the boy.

He blinked and took a moment to say anything “I’m, well I’m in your flying class”

Before Juniper could respond Charlie did for her “Actually Juniper will be going with me….. so you all can go elsewhere”

The large group of boys left to two with grumbles and groans.

“What was that about?” Juniper asked looking flushed.

Charlie looked down “I— well you looked uncomfortable….. and you didn’t want to go with any of them, right?”

“Of course I don’t, I just…… you really want to go with me?” Juniper tilted her head up staring into his eyes.

Charlie looked down at her for a moment “Yes!!! Yes, I really do want to go with you”

“Then see you then handsome???”


Juniper stepped down the long Hogwarts halls in her flowing silver dress, her heels clicking against the floor.

Her eyes fell on Charlie as he watched her walk over to him.

What a night to be alive.

Harry Potter Characters that I will believe are canonically queer until JKR herself tells me otherwise.

Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnigan - idk about their individual sexualities but they’re a canon couple. Pretty sure JK said at one point that she considered making them canon, so they are. You can’t change my mind.

Luna Lovegood - pansexual. Luna doesn’t give two shits about your gender. If she likes you, she likes you. She probably feels about genitals the same way she feels about moles or birthmarks.

Draco Malfoy - gay. I’m about 105% sure that Draco only married a woman because his parents expected him to continue the Malfoy Bloodline. A belief that’s only furthered by the fact that his wife knew she would die at a young age and wanted a child before her passing. His parents gave him a hard enough time for marrying a woman that isn’t a racist, now imagine him getting with a dude that can’t even produce offspring. He hid, masked and repressed his sexuality probably his whole life.

Harry Potter - bisexual, although probably with a preference for women. Harry’s described people of both genders as good looking, attractive, handsome and/or beautiful. And then there was that weird tension and borderline obsession with Draco, especially in Half Blood Prince.

Sirius Black - gay. Unmarried, no children, no former girlfriends known. Also, his really “close” friendship with Remus. I imagine their relationship a lot like I would that of Dumbledore and Grindelwald. A heated on/off affair. Except over the course of multiple years.

Remus Lupin - bisexual. See above. Also, his actor at one point said he acted Remus like a “gay junkie.”

Gellert Grindelwald - ?. I strongly believe him and Dumbledore had some kind of heated affair during their time together, but I’m not sure if he actually returned Dumbledore’s feelings or if he was just using him or experimenting. And if he did return his feelings, he could be anything from gay to pan or bi.

Nymphadora Tonks - bisexual. I can’t really tell you why, I just got this feeling.

There’s more, I just can’t think of them atm.

Okay but this is now my favorite dialogue in the whole hogwarts mystery game

It made me think of how useful Tonks could be for Penny

I mean, she’s a perfect test subject, you can try literally any of appearance changing potion on her because she can go back to her usual look and fix all possible mistakes in like a second

Just imagine

Penny testing her hair-growing potion

And bonus

Do you think that Tonks would loose a chance to have some more fun?

Hogwarts Mystery Dates

So, we know we’re in the same year as Charlie and Tonks, right? According to the Harry Potter Wiki, Charlie and Tonks attended from 1984-1991, so from there you can figure out what year it is:
