You know I haven’t seen anyone point this out but someone probably has… You can see from the Journal entry about the gnomes that Stanford has no idea what’s under the gnomes hats.
And apparently the need to see what is underneath drove him a little nuts to the point where he ALMOST LOST A BODY PART trying to see under the hat
This would lead one to assume the gnomes never take their hats off, right? That this is some big deal to them that their hats never come off their heads, right? That no one can ever know what’s under them, right?
I’m pretty sure the gnomes were just fucking with Ford that whole time on purpose
Teddy Lupin being really into the whole punk scene
15 year old Teddy going leather jacket shopping with Harry who helps him look through muggle thrift shops
Laying out studs and safety pins and fabric and embroidery floss and needles on the living room floor at the Potters. Ginny helps him embroider patches and sew them on and do designs with the safety pins.
Teddy feels really out of place and wonders why he’s so into Docs and leather jackets and piercings because no one else in the family is
until he sees a bunch of old pictures of Sirius in a photo album at the potter’s
and he sits on the floor and flips through it in awe because Sirius was just like him all pierced and wearing leather
and there are even pictures of Sirius kissing boys in the photo album because no one could stand to throw out any pictures of Sirius, no matter how personal, and Teddy especially lingers over those, because he feels like there is someone who would’ve really gotten his bisexuality
and Teddy just feels so understood, because if there’s one thing he’s heard from his grandmother about Sirius, it’s that he was nothing like the Blacks, that he broke away even more than she did, that Tonks really looked up to him, and everyone talks about Sirius so affectionately
And Andromeda comes in and sees him sitting there crying over these old polaroids
and she just tells him “Sirius would’ve adored you.”
and he completely breaks down until Harry comes in to see what’s wrong and sees him sitting there on the floor with Sirius’ photo album
they spend the rest of the night sitting together in front of the fireplace crying over old pictures
