BUT GUYS-

hp headcanon where a muggleborn hufflepuff sings “is this the real life? is this just fantasy?” under their breath because the song’s been stuck in their head for days, and then another muggleborn from across the table hears it and sings “caught in a landslide, no escape from reality” a little louder. now more than five muggleborn hufflepuffs turns their head to them and then they grin and sing “open your eyes, look up to the skies and seeeee”, their voices gradually getting louder, so now their whole table are listening and wondering wtf is going on. and on the ravenclaw table, a muggleborn hears them and then suddenly sings “i’m just a poor boy” a little too loud, causing heads to turn. but their muggleborn best friend beside them saves them and continues “i need no sympathy” just as loud, attracting more muggleborns. and then the hufflepuff + ravenclaw muggleborns all sing “because i’m easy come, easy go”, now catching everyone’s attention, even the professors and dumbledore himself. then enter the muggleborn gryffindors catching up to what the hell is going on and a 6th year gryffindor suddenly sings “little high, little low” and then hufflepuff + ravenclaw + gryffindor muggleborns are singing “anyway the wind blows, doesn’t really matter to me, to meeeeee” and then their voices grew louder when it came to the “mama, just killed a man” part and basically every muggleborn is singing along but then a confused slytherin shouts “what the bloody hell is going on?” since no one in their table seems to get what the actual fuck is going on (well, at least the purebloods didn’t). they stop singing, and a group of muggleborns in the gryffindor table were the last ones to realize that they were the only people left singing, so they stop too. there was a very awkward silence for a minute, someone mutters something along the lines of “we were singing a muggle song”. every muggleborn who was just singing two minutes ago frowned, suddenly feeling bummed that all fun was ended.

but wait-
a muggleborn slytherin saves the day.

quietly singing “put a gun against his head,” paused, and then sang “pulled my trigger, now he’s dead” louder. because of the silence everyone heard the 3rd year slytherin  perfectly. so now they were singing again.  “mama, life had just begun, but now I’ve gone and thrown it all away” sings the ravenclaw + hufflepuff + gryffindor kids. the part “mama, oooooooh” got every muggleborn singing, yes, even the hesitant slytherins.

and a ravenclaw kid charms a wall to show the lyrics. at first every pureblood’s like “oh come one wtf is this shit again” but then they realize that these were the lyrics so a few purebloods from each house join the singing and then in front you see dumbledore and mcgonagall swaying/dancing and hagrid and the others humming with the kids, all of them not being able to stop their smiles. and now everybody’s belting the lyrics (even purebloods) and the muggleborns are just having the time of their life, headbanging along while they all sing.

JUST IMAGINE
