109. We are not allowed to smile at our professors politely without any ulterior motive.

I didn’t realize how little I smile during class until this. - RL

You do have an alarming scowl as your resting face. - PP

I think your face is adorable. - SB

Thank you. That was surprisingly kind. - RL

I mean, a little weird looking, but it’s charming. - SB

Aaaand there it is. - RL

Sirius and Lupin had given Harry a set of excellent books entitled Practical Defensive Magic and its Use Against the Dark Arts, which had superb, moving color illustrations of all the counterjinxes and hexes it described. Harry flicked through the first volume eagerly; he could see it was going to be highly useful in his plans for the D.A.

this comes from my very staunch headcanon that remus broke sirius out of grimmauld place at least once

108. I am not allowed to steal the snitch from the Quidditch Locker Rooms. 

You’re not even a seeker. Why do you steal the snitch anyway? - RL

To impress the ladies. - JP

New flash. It doesn’t work. You just look stupid. - SB

Don’t listen to him James. I think it’s really impressive and I know there are girls who think so too. - PP

Thanks Pete. - JP

Wow. Just wow. - SB

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.”
