We don’t know how James and Sirius met Remus but I’ve always liked the idea that since September 1st, 1971 was super close to a full moon, Remus was super irritable and so while there all waiting to be sorted, this pureblood kid looks at him and sees that Remus has the traits of a muggle and asks “what are you, a mudblood?” And Remus, who has dealt with ignorance his whole fucking life is fed up with this kid so he whips around and just says “halfblood, pureblood, muggle born, doesn’t matter, I’ll still know more about magic than a posh wank stain like you.” And everyone is just stunned but James and Sirius are both just smiling like idiots because “oh my god we found our third.”

On this day in music history: December 17, 1971 - “Hunky Dory”, the fourth album by David Bowie is released. Produced by David Bowie and Ken Scott, it is recorded at Trident Studios in London in April 1971. Work on the album begins while Bowie is without record contract, having recently cut ties to his previous label Mercury Records. To help handle the production duties, Bowie hires former Abbey Road and Trident staff recording engineer Ken Scott (The Beatles, Supertramp, Missing Persons) to assist in the production. Executives from the US division of RCA Records hear the completed album, and sign him to a three album deal in September of 1971. It is also the first album to introduce new bassist Trevor Bolder (taking the place of bassist/producer Tony Visconti), and also features Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman on several tracks. The album features several classics including “Changes” (#66 Pop), “Queen Bitch” (written in tribute to Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground), “Life On Mars?” (#3 UK Pop), and “Oh You Pretty Things”. It receives significant critical praise from the British and US rock press upon its release, and is regarded as a pivotal recording in David Bowie’s career. The albums’ cover photo is inspired by a picture of actress Marlene Dietrich that the singer sees of her in a photo book, with him striking a similar pose. Reissued a number of times since its original 1971 release, the album is most recently remastered and reissued on CD in 2014 and as a 180 gram vinyl LP in 2015. In December of 2016, NARAS (Grammy Awards) announces their list of inductees for the Grammy Hall Of Fame for 2017. Among the recordings scheduled to receive the honor is Bowie’s single recording of “Changes”. “Hunky Dory” peaks at number three on the UK album chart, and number ninety three on the Billboard Top 200.
Hey, can I have a imagine about Sirius black? (Could it be relatively
long? If not that’s okay) about how we didn’t get along at first because
I’m a Slytherin and he’s a Gryffindor, and now we are in the Gryffindor
common room cuddling and giving kisses and reading out loud. I love
your account btw
September 8th, 1971 (First
Y/N smiled gracefully as she sat beside her sister at the
Gryffindor table. Even though Y/N is a Slytherin, her older sister never
treated her differently, she never abandoned her. Her father and mother hated
her, just because she was sorted in Slytherin. After she was sorted, at her
second day at Hogwarts, her parents sent her a Howler and made sure that
everyone knows that her mother was a Hufflepuff while her father was in
Ravenclaw. Making all her house mates hate her. She felt hated by a lot of
people but her sister. “I have to go to class. You know where potions class is,
right?” Y/N’s sister asked as she got up to leave.
Nodding, Y/N also got up to go to potions “I’ll see you at
lunch” and with that Y/N’s sister left, but not before kissing her forehead.
Walking out of the great hall, Y/N bumped into someone, 4 boys. She only recognized
Sirius Black, as he was the talk of the school on being a Black and a
Gryffindor. “Watch where you are going” Sirius snapped when he saw the
Slytherin robes “I’m sorry, no need to get your knickers twisted” Y/N snapped
back at the Black boy. Sirius narrowed his eyes at the girl “Now if you will
excuse me” Y/N started as she brushed her robes “I-” smiling sarcastically at
Sirius “-have to go to class” as Y/N walked away she bumped her shoulder
harshly into Sirius’ chest, making the boy stumble backwards a bit.
November 23rd, 1972
Y/N was doing her homework in the library. She’s in her second
year at Hogwarts, and still hasn’t made friends. However, since the sorting of
Regulus Black, the boy have been talking to her. Not much, but he is still
talking to her.
Groaning, Y/N got up to look if there is any books in the
library could help her with her homework that she can’t get done. Seeing the
book she needs in the highest shelf of the book holder she groaned and started
jumping, trying to get it. But failed, miserably. Suddenly a hand reached for
it, and Y/N thought that whoever that is was getting the book for her. How
wrong was she. “Need that?” The annoying voice of the one person that Y/N hates
the most asked sarcastically “Black” Y/N spited the name, like it’s venom in
her mouth “I do not need anything from you” Sirius frowned at the girl’s words,
she was just trying to reach the book he is holding. So she needs the book from
him. Sirius was so deep in his thoughts that he didn’t realize that Y/N has
left the library. Gone.
With that the tall boy placed the book back in its place,
feeling sad that the girl left “Stop it” Sirius muttered to himself, he shouldn’t
have been sad, that was his goal. Wasn’t it?
March 3rd, 1973 (Third Year)
Sitting in his common room, Sirius Black kept thinking about Y/N. Her hair. Her
smile. Her laugh. Her eyes. Her small, pretty face. He kept recalling every
single thing about her. And he couldn’t stop. He kept wishing to be the one to
move her hair out of her pretty face. To be the one to make her laugh. To be
the reason she smiles. To look into her eyes with the love he’s been holding
for her. To kiss her all over her pretty face.
He doesn’t know when or how. All he knows is that he is in love with Y/N. And
he won’t let anyone have her.
March 4th, 1973 (next morning)
Y/N and Regulus Black were sitting side by side. Talking and laughing. Sirius
Black and Remus Lupin were sitting side by side. Remus eating his breakfast
while Sirius glared at his younger brother.
“Who are you going to kill with your glare, Padfoot?” James Potter
joked as he noticed his friend’s narrowed eyes. Sirius looked at his friends
with a smile. That was obviously fake. “No one” looking back at Y/N
he saw a 4th year Slytherin talking to her, making her blush “No one at
None of the Marauders were convinced but they let it pass as they didn’t want
to push the subject. They know he will tell them eventually. He always does.
Like the rest of them.
March 5th, 1973 (following
“So you have a date?” Regulus Black asked his friend as he walked her
to potions “Yes. Can you believe that” Y/N squealed.
It was her first date ever, and she’s always heard from her sister and the
older girl how first dates are amazing and romantic. And boy, was she excited.
“Well, I’ve to leave. I don’t want to have a detention” Regulus said
as he stopped in front of the Potions class “Okay. Take care” Y/N
stood on her top toes to kiss his cheek. Yes, she was older than Regulus but he
was taller than most people in third and fourth year.
Entering potions class Y/N sat on an empty bench, until Sirius Black took a
seat beside her.
“What do you want, Black?” Y/N sneered at the Gryffindor. It was no
news that Y/N hates Sirius Black. And Sirius Black hates Y/N. But what was new
is for Sirius to not have a reply back. He always does. Y/N raised her eyebrows
at the older Black “What is wrong with you today?” Sirius looked at
the girl with a blank expression “Why do you care?” Y/N laughed
lightly, in a way that makes you know she doesn’t care “You see, I am
having a date later and I don’t want you to ruin my happy mode”
Sirius looked with the same expression at Y/N. Blank. No emotions, whatsoever.
Y/N stared at Sirius Black with her eyebrows raised “And I will start
making my potion” Y/N said slowly and very awkwardly as she pointed to her
June 13th, 1973 (last day of
“Hey, Y/N” Regulus called from across the hall getting his friend’s
attention, he also got Sirius’ attention. Not that he knew. Y/N’s lips broke
into a smile upon seeing her friend. She quickly got up and ran, knowing that
they will go to the lake even though they shouldn’t as today is their last day
this year. And they’ve decided to make the last few hours of the last day
Sirius saw how Y/N left everything she has and went to throw her arms around
his brother’s neck and her legs around his waist. His fist clinched under the
table as he tightened his grip around the fork. “I have to go” with
that muttered he left the table and went to his dorm.
It has been an hour and Y/N’s and Regulus’ hair were wet due to going in the
lake. Their cloths were clinging to them uncomfortably, Y/N was surprised to
see that Regulus have a fit body, even though he seems skinny in school
clothes, the boy has abs and she can see them through his wet, clingy, white
“I think I will sit like this more often” Y/N said as she sat on
Regulus’ stomach while he was sleeping on his back “Oh, for Merlin’s sake
get up” Regulus said as he tried to push the girl off of him “You’re
not as light as you look” Y/N laughed at this and pushed herself down to
make herself heavier “ And you’re ridiculously comfortable” both
friends laughed as the camera that Y/N charmed took a photo.
October 9th, 1974 (fourth year)
“Y/N” and here again, Sirius Black kept poking Y/N’s arm while
whispering her name in Potions class, to help him with his potion that he
doesn’t even know the name to.
“Sod off” Y/N hissed as she tried to concentrate on her potion
“but you have to help me” Y/N sighed as she started cutting the
plants she has “And I have to help you, why?” Y/N asked as she
dropped plants in the liquid potion in front of her “because you are kind.
And pretty. And don’t wish harm for anyone” Sirius listed as he looked at
the girl with hope in his eyes. Y/N smiled at his words and then her smile
turned to smirk “keep listing, maybe I will change my mind” Sirius
went quit for a while and then spoke “I will fail if you didn’t help me.
You don’t want that, do you, love?” Sirius asked cockily as he placed a
hand on the girl’s tights, Y/N’s eyes narrowed at the knife in front of her.
Slapping his hand away with the back of the knife, Y/N took a quick glance at
Sirius as a sarcastic smile formed on her lips “frankly, my dear, I don’t
give a damn"
October 21st, 1974
“I’m not ready for anyone to find about us” Y/N’s boyfriend of
nearly a year answered Y/N’s question to why they have to sneak around in a
whisper as he got back to kissing her neck in an empty classroom. Y/N moaned quietly
when he bite onto her neck, making her melt under his touch. Gathering all the
strength that she has she pushed him, not wanting to sneak around anymore “Why?
Are you embarrassed or something?” when Y/N didn’t get a reply she felt tears
burn in her eyes, she never knew this. Is Regulus embarrassed of her too?
“You know what. You don’t have to be embarrassed anymore” Y/N
said as she straightened her clothes “We are done. Okay. Over” and with
that she went to find the only one that could comfort her. Regulus.
Finding her friend in his dorm with other students, she called
him and asked o talk outside. But seeing her tear stained face Regulus told
everyone to get out, when no one moved he got angry “Get out”
January 2nd, 1974
Sitting on a tree Y/N saw a tall figure coming towards
her. “What do you want Black?” Y/N asked as soon as he stood above
her “Well, I want you to get some rest. You look terrible” Y/N laughed
lightly “Well, that’s always a nice thing to hear” Sirius cracked a smile
and stretched his hand to help Y/N up “Come on, please, get up” Y/N looked
at Sirius and at his hands for a while, doubting if she should get up
“Come one, everyone is going to leave to Hogsmeade without us.
And if that happened I am blaming you for not going on our date” Sirius said as
Y/N smiled and took his hand to get up “It’s a date now?” “Oh yeah”
Y/N laughed and kissed his cheek “Thanks”
January 5th, 1974
Y/N laughed as she stood infront of the Slytherin
Portrait. “I will come and get you tomorrow. Okay” Sirius said as he
hugged Y/N “Yeah”
Sirius’ eyes travelled from Y/N’s eyes to her lips, leaning in
they shared a peck “You know, if this portrait lady woke up she is worse
than your mum” Y/N whispered “I don’t care, I’m with you right now and
that’s all that matter” Sirius muttered against the girl’s lips as both of them
leaned in. His hands around her waist, her hands in his hair, both pulled the
other closer, wanting them and nothing more.
September 5th, 1975 (Fifth
“Is that Padfoot?” Remus Lupin asked James and Peter as they
heard a voice reading “Merlin” Remus gasped “I know that book” James
laughed “Of Course you would” Remus shook his head at his friend “That’s
Going down the stairs Rumes, Peter and James saw Sirius with Y/N
in one of his many V-neck shirts and her shorts in his lap, with one arm around
her waist and the other holding the book. The three marauders smiled at the
sight of their friend. They were happy for him.
“I love you” Y/N said making Sirius stop
mid-sentence “What” Sirius breathed, shocked. Y/N repositioned herself so
she could face Sirius “I love you” Y/N placed her hands on Sirius’
cheeks “I love you, Sirius Orion Black. It’s always been you”
Sirius broke into a grin and kissed Y/N, dropping the
book “I love you. I love you so much”
The three marauders in the back ground smiled “Well, took
them long enough” and with that they left the couple alone.
Y/N giggled when Sirius slapped her hands from his
hair “Don’t touch my hair” Sirius growled playfully as he kissed Y/N’s
nose “Come one. Stop it. I want to complete the book” Y/N said as she got
up from Sirius’ lap to get the book, however, Sirius grabbed her waist and pushed
her back down on his lap “Sirius” Y/N squealed as she held onto the chair
arms, afraid to fall “I love you so much babe. Never forget that. Never”
Sirius said as he placed a hand on her cheek and kissed her gently, he was
holding her as if she is made of glass. And Y/N loved the way he made her feel
like this. The way he made her feel safe, and that he’d never hurt her.
“How did we end up like that?” Y/N whispered as they broke the
kiss “I don’t know” Sirius whispered “And, frankly, my dear, I don’t
give a damn” With that Sirius positioned his arms, one under her knees and one
on her back and stood up quickly, causing Y/N to clutch the front of his shirt
and yelp in surprise
Sorry for any mistake and for late post but i had some packing to do :)

“She doesn’t have to be all gussied up,” he raved about her. “She’s wonderful just as she is.”
But Pier’s strict Italian mother didn’t approve of her daughter dating a non-Catholic, and James said, “I wouldn’t marry her unless I could take care of her properly. And I don’t think I’m emotionally stable enough to do so right now.”
She soon wed singer Vic Damone, and a heartbroken James was seen outside the church on his motorcycle on their wedding day. “He couldn’t believe it was going to happen,” Lew
James Dean’s close friend says. “He needed to see it with his own eyes.”
On September 10, 1971, at age 39, Pier Angeli died in her home of a barbiturate overdose. In a letter to a friend just before her death, Pier said “…My love died at the wheel of a Porsche. It’s now been 17 years that I’ve been lonely, desperately lonely. I want to find peace and be free and finally be with my father and Jimmy again.”
Did you know that Tupac promoted a Deathrow Records project called Deathrow East? The plan was to sign east coast rappers to somewhat squash the East coast/West coast beef. Suge Knight’s intentions were to make Deathrow big on the East coast to overtake Bad Boy Records. This project never came in to play due to Tupac Shakur’s Death (RIP June 16, 1971-September 13, 1996)
How do you think music would be if Deathrow East really happened?
The first time I saw [Linda] was after that press conference to announce Apple in America. We were just going back to the airport and she was in the car with us. I didn’t think she was particularly attractive, I wondered what he was bothering having her in the car for. A bit too tweedy, you know. But she sat in the car and took photographs and that was it. And the next minute she’s married him.
