y’all know i have a fetish for bulletpoint lists already, so here’s some fun stuff from TTAZZ:
griffin legit thought magnus was going to take the chalice to save julia & he had, like, two episodes worth of wild-ass darkest timeline nonsense that just got scrapped
we woulda gotten a lot more kravitz screen-time if taako & merle hadn’t saved magnus at the end of the suffering game w/ that sweet fuckin soul-grab
justin has now officially confirmed that roleplaying a romantic date with his little brother was super awkward
the reason merle hates angus is because he’s insecure about his own place on the team & so he’s immediately resentful whenever anybody new starts tagging along
there is a reason why garfield was growing a magnus clone in a tank but griffin is going to take that secret to his fucking grave
griffin’s two ideas for the next arc they play are a persona/buffy-inspired game set in an unsuccessful west virginia ski resort town being attacked by monsters, and a cowboy bebop/battlestar galactica-inspired post-apocalyptic jazzy space opera. (holy shit that’s rad)
justin wants to do a game where it’s sherlock holmes, but they’re all sherlock holmeses, and they’re all trying to get clues that are better than the other sherlock holmeses. four super-smart sherlock holmeses, but one of them is a vampire - are they good enough detectives to figure out which one?????
How did Fred and George figure out how to use the marauders map? “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good” isn’t exactly a phrase you just happen to say.
Imagine the twins staying up late poking at this pilfered piece of old parchment, wants out, trying to figure it out. What if the map really WAS enchanted to insult whomever reads it (with special anti-snivellus spells worked in of course).
The twins LOVE IT, they think it’s hysterical, the want more! So they start interacting with the map more and offering their own quips and insults (“Mssr. Padfoot sounds like a loser with bad hair” “MSSR PADFOOT’S HAIR IS LUXURIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL EXCUSE YOU.”) They start developing a report with the personalities inside the map.
The map decides they’re worthy of its secrets.
Fred and George get even more into the map, and into these four mysterious mischief makers who paved the way for them. Did they go to Hogwarts? What houses were they in? Did Prongs play quidditch or gobstones? Did Moony have a girlfriend? Did Wormtail prefer chocolate or licorice?
Fred and Geoege start making goddamn Marauders headcanons. They’re super into it- these four people are their heroes. They imagine a whole life for them and speculate endlessly.
Flash forward to the summer before their 7th year. They’ve long since passed the map to Harry, have sort of gotten over their obsession with the marauders, have bigger things to focus on. But then in the hallway, in passing, they hear Sirius fondly calling Remus “Moony” and hear Lupin laugh and call Sirius “Padfoot”.
