i just realized that james & sirius’s friendship mirrors ron & harry’s:

  • the dursleys abused harry
  • the blacks abused sirius
  • the weasleys loved and cared for ron
  • the potters also loved and cared for james
  • harry runs away from privet drive hoping to never return again
  • sirius runs away from grimmauld place hoping to never return again
  • harry basically moves in with the weasleys after his fourth year
  • sirius moves in with james sometime while they were still in school
  • whalburga black blasted sirius off the family tapestry
  • all the dursleys ever wanted was to erase harry from their lives and memories
  • ron comes from an old pureblood gryffindor family, there was never any question about which house he would be in
  • same with james
  • harry didn’t want to be in slytherin and was instead placed in gryffindor
  • same with sirius
  • harry and sirius were like the lost boys
  • james and ron were their anchors and support systems
  • I’M EMOTIONAL

we need to talk about Ron in Prisoner of Azkaban 

  • imagine all the secrets he told Scabbers
  • his good pet Scabbers who was always there 
  • listened to him when spoke about his doubts
  • his fears
  • how he was worried he’d never live up to his brothers
  • they were all amazing
  • made their parents proud
  • but what about him??? what could he do???
  • the love that a young boy had for a simple old pet
  • then he finds out that his rat was involved in the murder of his best friend’s parents 
  • he was never a garden rat 
  • but an aid to the death of lily and james potter
  • imagine how he felt at that moment
  • sure deep down he knew he couldn’t have known 
  • it wasn’t his fault
  • but that initial guilt
  • for years he had looked after and shared his secrets with peter pettigrew
  • a villain in hiding 
  • did he feel like he couldn’t look Harry in the eye
  • ever put into words how sorry he was 
  • Harry was going through unimaginable pain
  • but surely, so was Ron too
201. The seven muggles that saw Harry and Ron flying the car in the second book were the seven halfbloods from Heroes of Olympus which is why there wasn’t any sort of uproar, because Percy and the others had seen much crazier things.

have you ever imagined what it would be like if harry and ron were girls and hermione was a guy. like harry would be this badass with a pleated skirt that fucked shit up and then ron would be that girl that eats so much food but never gains a pound. and then hermione would just be the same kickass person tbh
