Houses as Classmates
  • Gryffindor: Those witty classmates who always have a sarcastic comment for those annoying people who couldn't care less about school because the bs is too much for them to take silently.
  • Hufflepuff: The friend who you may not have seen in forever but will pick things up with no hesitation as long. The honest and hardworking ones who hate cheaters. Especially the ones who brag about how good they are at cheating.
  • Ravenclaw: The ones who hate group projects because they're simultaneously bitter over doing all the work but also reluctant to give any work to anyone else because you really can't trust them.
  • Slytherin: The ones who seem to not be able to be bothered to do anything but they're actually balancing everything at once and just trying to make it through and please everyone even though they're tearing themselves apart sometimes.


If I’m not wrong, this is the only light grey suit he wears in the movie. His other suits are all in dark colours. If we assume that Harry chooses his suits based on mood and occasion, then the first suit we see - the one he wears when he gives Eggsy the medal, which is also the one he wears to the church in Kentucky - is probably the one he tends to wear when he’s upset. His suit when they were toasting Lancelot was also quite dark in colour, close to black. Dark colours, particularly black, are associated with funerals and mourning.

The grey suit is rather different in colour and… pattern? when compared to his other suits. Since he hasn’t worn anything similar while on duty as Galahad, and is only seen wearing the light grey suit in a casual, non-work setting, it’s plausible that this particular suit is his personal favourite, which he saves for special occasions.

Other things to take note of:

Harry’s face is turned towards Eggsy and HE IS SMILING. Harry isn’t shown smiling very often, and his sincere smiles are always directed at Eggsy.

Harry is carrying his umbrella on the side further away from Eggsy. Holding an object between yourself and the person you’re walking with creates a sense of disrance, because the object acts as a sort of barrier. This isn’t terribly significant because Harry tends to carry his umbrella in his right hand anyway, but it does contribute to the feeling of closeness between them.

Also, Harry and Eggsy’s hands are actually a lot closer in this scene than what we see in this image. In fact, if you watch this part of the movie, their arms are almost brushing at one point - that’s how close they are. You usually only walk that close to someone you intend to hold hands with, imo. AND, if Eggsy hadn’t tucked his hands in his pockets, his right hand would be around where Harry’s left hand is. In other words, he probably did that so he wouldn’t accidentally (or “accidentally”) hold Harry’s hand.

Now observe Eggsy’s body language. His head is turned ninety degrees to face Harry, he’s not even looking at where he’s going. He’s smiling broadly, his attention is completely fixed on Harry.

Also, if you watch this scene in the movie, his grin falters just a little bit when Harry says he won’t be teaching Eggsy how to “talk proper, like in ‘My Fair Lady’”. He also seems to have looked away for a brief moment while Harry is explaining that being a gentleman has nothing to do with one’s accent, because you see his head snapping back to face Harry after the camera briefly switches away to show us the rest of the street. And then, after Harry quotes Hemingway - which is really just another reassurance that Eggsy doesn’t need to learn the mannerisms of the upper class in order to fit Harry’s personal definition of a gentleman, Eggsy has the most wonderful expression on his face. It’s difficult to describe - he looks intrigued and pleased and contemplative, but there’s also something else. Something more.

So, I know you really like Peter Pan and I have been reading it recently in my uni lit society. Everyone else thinks it's lovely and brilliant escapism and stuff, but I mostly think it's unnerving. Especially Mr Darling deciding to live in a dog kennel. It's a funny idea but then when you think about how his children have disappeared and he seems to think it's some kind of atonement... It really makes me feel uneasy. I don't see what everyone else is seeing in it and I can't express why to them

Well, it is unnerving. It’s totally unnerving. There’s no reason it can’t be escapist and unnerving at the very same time. Consider Harry Potter. Consider Alice in Wonderland. Consider Narnia. Consider Treasure Island. Consider Coraline. There’s no rule saying something can’t be unsettling just because it’s ostensibly an adventure story for children. Half the reason I love Peter Pan is that it is so deliciously twisted. But I’ve talked about that quite a bit already. Please see this post here and this post here, and you might find some of the answers you’re looking for.

anonymous asked:

Hiii! English isn't my first language and I really can't understand some words/sentences on the slate review, can you tell what it says about h's album please?

the main points of that article is that the things harry have said vs his image and songs aren’t really consistent and are very conflicting. it’s also talking about how harry talks about how important his fanbase and women are but his songs also contradict it since it his lyrics have misogynistic parts to it and is him trying to cater to the ‘music snob dudes’. also how he is breaking gender norms but his songs are ultra hetero and are clearly played up.

tldr; harry’s image in conflicting with what he’s said in the past vs his songs vs his image. and that his image is not really up to date and is stuck in the 70s/80s


When a wizard is born, everything is in black and white. When they make eye contact with their soulmates, the world gets color.

Drarry AU: When he grew up with the Dursley’s, Harry assumed that he was genetically colorblind. It was a pain in the arse, but it was manageable. He had never known any different.

Of course, when Hagrid shows up, his whole world is turned upside down. Magic and owls and broomsticks and soulmates? How did he get into this mess? 

And a month later he is on the way to Hogwarts boarding the train with Ron Weasley, smiling and joking, when Hermione Granger walks into their compartment and walks out as the room train colors before them. Ron was quite understandably offended. “Honestly Harry, I’m not bad looking! I mean the freckles are a bit off-putting but- that was just rude!”

When inside Hogwarts Harry meets Draco Malfoy, who is the most vivid anything Harry’s ever seen. White-blonde hair and smirking features all carved out. It takes him a moment to get over the shock of meeting his soulmate and then Malfoy not mentioning it. And then to add insult to injury, he’s a total arsehole. Harry thinks that there must’ve been a mistake. Malfoy can’t be his soulmate. He’s cruel and insulting. Obviously, he didn’t even recognize Harry!

In his Second Year, when they are masquerading as Crabbe and Goyle, Harry figures out why. Malfoy is actually genetically colorblindHe has no idea that Harry is his soulmate. He never will if Harry doesn’t tell him (which seems to be his best option.)

In Fourth Year, he asks Professor Sprout if his roots are supposed to be purple or dark red. She answers without hesitation, but everyone else in the class turns around to him and stares. Harry realizes his mistake and blushes visibly. He has no idea how to explain how no one knows who his soulmate is.

He hastily explains that they’re trying to keep it quiet until the tournament is over, which leads everyone to believe it’s a girl from one of the two opposing schools. He is off the hook until he lets it slip that his soulmate is a he. Everyone is then wondering which one of the boys it is, and Harry gets teased mercilessly from Malfoy. 

In sixth year, Harry knows something is up with Malfoy. He can feel it. He tries breaking into the Room of Requirement countless times to find out what Malfoy is doing in there with no avail. Malfoy looks tired and stressed constantly, and Harry wanted to hug him and tell him everything would be all right.

Right after Christmas break, Parkinson stands up in the middle of the Great Hall waving her arms wildly and whistling, demanding everyone’s attention. She claims that she has waited six long years to tell everyone, but she is actually Malfoy’s soulmate. She explains his genetic colorblindness, that Goyle told her about yesterday, and says that she never knew the right time to tell him but here we are! Malfoy looks up, entirely shocked. He scans the Great Hall, full of confused onlookers and storms out. Harry knows how it looks, but he follows him straight to the Girls’s Lavatory. Harry can’t believe she’d sink so low as to lie to him. He has to set the record straight.

Harry tells him in a whisper, but the look on his face says that he most definitely heard. Draco stalks over to Harry, asks why are you doing this, please, are you lying to me?

Harry shakes his head and laughs bitterly, “Honestly, why would I make that up?”

Draco laughs back, “God, it seems like the world is playing a sick joke on me this year. I knew I felt different after meeting you, but I just passed it off as hatred.”

They must spend hours, talking in the bathroom, but once Draco leaves, it’s the last he speaks to him. At the end of the year, Draco attempts to kill Dumbledore. Harry knows he won’t go through with it, but it hurts. The boy who he loves trying to kill a sort-of father figure for him. It’s a different kind of pain than Harry has experienced.  A burning flame of betrayal and heartbreak.

Draco doesn’t identify him in the next year, barely puts up a fight for his wand to be taken, looks at Harry guiltily. Harry knows that Draco feels the same way he does. He sees it all over his face.

The Battle of Hogwarts and with their confrontation in the Room of Requirement laying heavy on Harry’s mind, he thinks it’s going to be okay, The way the Malfoys refused to fight for Voldemort, the way Draco couldn’t even manage to say he didn’t love Harry, the look in Draco’s eyes once he realized that Harry was alive, Harry knows it’s going to be okay.

The last school day before their fifth year at Hogwarts ended, Al met his best friend where they usually did - under a tree by the lake. As he approached Scorpius, sat down with a book as usual, his mind began to wander. 

How long will you do this to yourself, Al?

You know he’s not gonna feel the same way.

Isn’t unrequited love torture for you?

Al sighed. 

I can handle it. 

I may not be a Gryffindor but I am my parents’ son - stupidly brave, if it comes down to it. 

Stupid is correct. 

Yeah, you know… I like pain. 

Stupid indeed.

His feet crunched on the dry leaves. Scorpius looked up and his mouth broke out into a huge grin - a grin he saves for Al, as Al would always notice. 

“Hey, mate,” Scorp pipes up happily, scooting over so Al could sit down beside him.  Al bumped his shoulder against Scorp’s. “So, what’s up?”

Scorp’s smile slowly faded to a smaller one which didn’t quite reach his eyes. “I… don’t think it’s gonna work out with Rose,” he said guiltily. Al sighed. “And after I gave you my blessing and all… am I going to have to kill my best friend to avenge my beloved cousin?” Scorp held up his hands. “No! It’s not like that She broke it off with me.” 

 “Oh,” Al said simply, looking down at his hands. Scorp nodded. “Well then.. I’m sorry, mate.” 

Well, aren’t you happy now all of a sudden, Al.

Shut up! I’m trying to be a supportive friend.

Scorp shook his head. “Nah, it’s alright. I… get it, why she did it.” 

“Why did she do it?”

“It was fine at first, you know… then it wasn’t? I found myself not being into it that much anymore… I dunno what changed.” Al noticed Scorp couldn’t look at him straight in the eye.

As Scorpius was telling him all of this, Al found it very hard not to let his best friend know he was actually happy Scorp wasn’t dating his cousing anymore, because he wishes he’d be the one Scorp was dating instead. 

Al shook his head and sighed. “Well, plenty of other girls out there,” he said, trying for a friendly tone. He felt his heart break when he said it. 

Scorp shook his head. “No, it’s… it’s not like that at all.” Puzzled, Al turned to face his best friend. 

Scorpius was looking at him in this intense way, his grey eyes almost boring into Albus’ green ones. He’s looked at Al this way before - after a particularly good and competitive Quidditch match; when Al gave him his first Weasley sweater for Christmas; when Al told him how proud he was of Scorpius when, for the first time, Scorpius emerged the top of their class after a furious academic battle with Rose Weasley - which was shortly before they started dating.

Al felt his eyebrows meet. “What do you mean?”

Scorpius took a deep breath. 

And then he kissed Al.

As they sat by the lake, holding hands loosely, Al asked Scorp quietly, “How long have you wanted to do that?”

Scorpius chuckled. He was so close, Al felt Scorp’s body shake. With his other hand, he touched Albus’ cheek lightly. 

“Since the moment we met.”

So, you happy now, Albus?

Shut up.

But Al smiled, and it reached his eyes.

Ways to Cheer Yourself Up (When wanting to be alone) - 50 top things to do
  • 1. Go ON Tumblr, believe it or not, we don't care where you're from, what you do, how you're being you, as long as you are being you, you're pretty much welcomed on here. That's why i love it. Unless of course you are homophobic or judgemental or ignorant - then the people will speak for themselves, we look out for each other here.
  • 2. Read Books; escapism is a wonderful thing
  • 3. Listen to music; and no - not the sad, 'ALL BY MYSELF' type music, but the kickass songs like 'I will Survive' or 'Loser Like Me' just celebrate yourself for being awesome, because we know you are; even if others don't; especially then actually.
  • 4. Become your own superhero. Every single one of you have a talent or a dream. Follow up on that talent/dream. YOU ARE WORTH IT, and you can be whoever you want to be.
  • 5. DISNEY MOVIES. Unless you absolutely hate bursting out into song - better cut of highschool musical and glee while were at this, then Disney is the best pick me up ever.
  • 6. Watch your favourite TV shows. Remind yourself why life can be awesome. Watching your fav characters usually means you can relate to them.
  • 7. Go on walks - it's very pretty outside, and sometimes our heads can be overloaded with information or stress, I advise calming music and a nice walk outside in comfortable clothes.
  • 8. Have a diary. A friend of mine recently bought me one, and it's a godsend because all the anger, or emotions I feel, I try to put in the diary rather than putting it out on others. It also calms you down. I feel better when I write.
  • 9. Speaking of writing...if you enjoy it- WRITE. Writing is a wonderful way to escape. You can put all your emotions into your characters and they just come to life. I tend to do that when I'm stressed.
  • 10. If writing is not your thing then bake. I've actually ironically read in a fan fiction where a character would bake when stressed and try out new recipes, this character tried making butterbeer; maybe be adventurous; have a food blog or something to keep you occupied.
  • 11. Be With Your Pets - Pets are loyal creatures, and they love you, even when you're being a pain in the ass, and I hear they're very good listeners.
  • 12. Now I don't know about you, but I LOVE Musicals. If you are a musical fanatic like me and you're feeling a little down, my dears; listen to those awesome voices, because sometimes we just - need - a break (Also, if you haven't watched RENT, watch it - NODAYBUT TODAY...or Starkid...Starkid make the most funniest musical parodies, even if you don't like musicals I suggest it, and if you're not enjoying their YouTube Channel, then I'll eat my own hat).
  • 13. ASK ME ANYTHING. If you really want to talk to somebody but you don't want to talk to people you know and you just want to get things out, my ASK box is always open.
  • 14. Find a hobby. If you don't really want to talk to anybody, that's okay, sometimes we need to just have some 'me time'. In my me times, I usually deactivate from Facebook, and just focus on things that make me happy. Like; Puzzles, Sudoku, Games, writing, cooking, singing, whatever it is...travelling even. Enjoy yourself.
  • 15. Travel. Maybe being stuck in the same place is the problem, maybe you're head wants to be in a place where it can ACTUALLY THINK.
  • 16. Go Hiking. I suppose Hiking is similar to walking but if you're an outdoor person, this is a great way to clear your head and to feel fresh.
  • 17. Hit The Gym. Or even do your own exercises. I like to walk - do crunches, and I love Zumba. I love dancing. If you love being active, this is also another way to clear your mind from negative things.
  • 18. GO SEE A MOVIE!!! When was the last time you had fun? Even if it's just by yourself. You're allowed to treat yourself. Go, enjoy, be surrounded by people, even if they're strangers.
  • 19. If you like coffee, treat yourself for one at a local cafe. Who knows, you might meet your coffee soulmate in a cafe one day.
  • 20. STOP thinking Negative. Have a Pros/Cons List. Try not to outweight the Pros list with the Cons. Please?
  • You are good enough.
  • 21. Write down a bucket List, and start ticking them off. Having goals and dreams is healthy. If you have dreams, then you have a direction of where you're going.
  • 22. Get help. It's okay, if you're head is in a really bad place to reach out to people. It really is okay.
  • 23. Help others. If you're not sure what to do with yourself at all, be useful to other people less fortunate than you. Volunteer! Work with Charity, Feed the homeless, help the guide dogs association.
  • 24. Smile more. It looks good on you, believe me. Spend time with your guilty pleasures, my guilty pleasure is binge watching glee
  • 25. Please DO NOT go to a pub to drink to ease your mind, if you are going to do that, do it with a friend, or somebody close.
  • 26. Eat Chocolate. Okay yes while society says NO DON'T EAT THE FATTY FOOD. Hey; screw them. If you feel better eating a bit of junk go for it. There's nothing wrong with eating a whole pizza or tub of ben and jerry ice cream when feeling upset - just try not to make TOO much of a habit : p
  • 27. REBLOG YOUR FOLLOWERS POSTS, you might be surprised that you aren't the only one feeling the way you're feeling, you might be surprised by how much you're forgetting that hey - it's gonna be alright.
  • 28. Do something nice for your neighbour. Ah who knows, have you ever actually talked to them? Maybe they might be lonely too.
  • 29. Have a GAMES Night. A very good friend of mine loves Games. If You LOVE Games, then hell have a marathon of them. Play the sims, be in control.
  • 30. Speaking of marathons...dun dun dun - MOVIE MARATHON, I Don't Know About You Guys, But Having A Harry Potter Movie Marathon always cheers me Up. WITH FOOD Of course, and good company, but this is about cheering yourself up, so if you don't want company, that's okay.
  • 31. Draw. I love drawing too. I suppose I'm more of the creative person. There are a lot of different types of people out there, maybe you like solving things - do those fancy cube things Idk what they're called. If you are like my brother and you love Maths, then maybe you can tutor someone. On one hand you're helping someone, and doing something you like doing, just like I'm drawing because I like drawing.
  • 32.Be with kids. believe it or not, kids are the most innocent little munchkins, and they honestly don't care what you look like, if you play hide and seek with them they'll be thrilled, so long as you're nice to them, they're generally nice to you... but be warned, they tell it how it is too. I talk a bit different. The most popular thing they've said to me was "Is that why you talk funny, because of the things in your teeth?" (They've also never really seen braces before) I even had one kid determined to get me to sing 'Everything is awesome' I'll never forget that because this kid clearly didn't care how I sounded, and just wanted me to sing with her. I felt great.
  • 33. If you're into Fairy Tales, Please Please Read Chris Colfer's The Land Of Stories series 1-4. It's an amazing series, and you almost forget what world you're in once you start reading. Plus, there's more coming (I'm a little excited)
  • 34. Watch Pixar Movies. You can't go wrong.
  • 35. GO TO HOGWARTS. Harry Potter Fan? Visit - Platform 9 3/4s in London, or go to the Harry Potter World, or if you can't actually visit these sites, go on Pottermore.
  • 36. Read Fan Fiction, you might not be a harry potter fan, but whatever fandom you are in, believe me sometimes Fan Fictfion Cheer me up. I adore Glee *Don't Judge Me* and Dalton is the best thing ever. Or Little Numbers...or Both. They cheer me up big time.
  • 37. Role play. If you like superheroes or characters, go be with the crowd. I believe they have events like Comic Con, and on Facebook they even have Events for such things, go be with strangers! So long as it's safe of course.
  • 38. Write a letter to the person who inspires you most and send it. You might be surprised by an answer.
  • 39. Pick up your instrument. Don't ignore your musical talent if you do have a musical talent. Remember, you're worth it. I don't care what you've done. Pick, It Up.
  • 40. Maybe go visit your family? I know this is about 'quality me time' but if you haven't seen your family in such a long time or are at a distance. Maybe being surrounded by something familiar is what you need.
  • 41. Change Careers. If you're not enjoying what you're doing or studying, change it. I remember in highschool a teacher said you might change your job 10 - 12 times before getting it right. It'okay, you just haven't found where you're meant to be yet.
  • 42. Enter a competition - Who knows what will come from it, take risks.
  • 43. If you're a risk-taker, challenge yourself. IDK how you're going to do that, but google has some pretty good answers. Even ask your tumblr followers, they follow you for a reason after all.
  • 44. Go on a boat. Go Fishing! I don't know, it's not my thing, but if you like fishing, then hell - go out there and fish.
  • 45. Find time for yourself, are you working too much? Maybe you are working too much. You know life doesn't stop for nobody, and if you keep pushing yourself so hard, time will go so fast and you won't realise how much of that time you could have spent on your own self.
  • The world is not going to end if you treat yourself.
  • 46. You ARE Good Enough. Listen to my words. Sometimes encouragement is all we need, when people feel hopeless, or like everything's gone wrong. It's gonna be okay. I promise, just hang in there.
  • 47. Write Down Quotes that Inspire You. I have a wall of these, and of people that inspire me too, and it reminds me of the good things in life when I'm in a crappy mood.
  • 48. Find something to do. If you're not doing anything, go take up a course, research things that interest you, you might be surprised by what comes from it. Join a community that enjoys doing things you do.
  • 49. Go To The Beach - If you live in Australia like me, visiting the beach is actually really calming and me and my best friend always would go on a random drive, and drive up to a beach or a look out, and it was always calming. Enchanting too sometimes. Maybe we forget about the place we live in, and what's exciting about the place. If you're in New York, visit Broadway or The Statue Of Liberty, or if you're in London, go to the London Bridge, or the Eye, visit the Eiffel Tower if you're in Paris...just go Anywhere.
  • 50. Take a random journey. Go on a train to somewhere new, go on a road trip. You never know what's around the corner.

Ok making this public bc multiple ppl spoke up about it

I explicitly said that Hermione’s hair is 100% black bc yes non-black ppl can have hair with hella volume BUT:

1) Joanne emphasized Hermione’s hair as a socially negative thing. Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t 99.9% of chemical hair straighteners geared towards women of the African diaspora? Aren’t there tons of articles scrutinizing a black woman’s hair?

When I hear a non-black woman complain about the volume of her hair, it’s usually hyperbolic and nowhere near as much as black hair. Also, it’s usually a personal thing. I’ve never heard a non-black person say that they want to change their hair bc of societal pressures. They usually want to do smth bc it’s a burden TO THEM.

2) Hermione used excessive amounts of a magical chemical to straighten her hair for the Yule ball. Last time I checked, all non-black women need is a straightener.

I never said VOLUME is exclusive to black women. And curls aren’t even exclusive to black women. But curls that are only addressed as a problem in the ways listed above? I don’t fucking think so

And if you truly feel excluded by my reasoning, then I wonder if you feel excluded by the natural hair movement. I wonder if you look at black women’s hair and say “I’ve got a tighter curl pattern than her. She’s 2a, I’m 2c”

How GoF really went

Draco: Hey guys, how aesthetically pleasing and eye catching would I look to Potter if I climbed up this tree right here? Just sat right there with my long legs crossed, y'know, a real treat

Crabbe: Uh-

Goyle: I don’t thi-

Draco: Yes, I’d look brilliant. I knew it. Give me a leg up, won’t you? And hurry up, he’s coming!!

Zabini: I didn’t sign up for this pining shit

  • The Secret Service: Ma'am, please. You have to stop calling us, or we're going to take legal action.
  • *struggling on the other line*
  • Barack: Harry Styles?! Girl, I WISH I knew! Did you see that little shit didn't even publicly wish Niall a happy birthday? Smdh.

anonymous asked:

I have been craving headcanons from an AU where Sirius did in fact raise Harry and for some horrible reason I can't find any. Please enable me to fangirl over paternal Sirius Black because omfg so cute

HEADCANONS yes I was thinking about this when I couldn’t sleep at 4am

  • Sirius puts Harry’s cot in his own room until he’s really outgrown it and needs a bed, at which point he moves him into the spare room. The first night they’re in separate rooms Sirius barely sleeps at all, even though he knows he’s being silly. 
  • He almost decorates Harry’s room Gryffindor red but decides against it because he doesn’t want the kid to feel bad if he isn’t in Gryffindor. 
  • Instead he goes with a turquoise colour and puts some of those glow in the dark stars on the ceiling that Remus found in the supermarket. 
  • When Harry starts at the muggle primary school down the street he questions the poor teacher far too much about the curriculum for the entire year and their stance on bullying and asks her to call him if anything happens and tells her all about what Harry does and doesn’t like and is the last to leave the classroom with the mother of a little blond girl that Harry’s already talking to. 
  • He and the mother both have a bit of a cry and go and get coffee together.
  • He settles for a job in one of the smaller ministry departments because even though he had hopes of curse breaking when he was in school he doesn’t want to drag Harry all over the place with him, and besides the ministry is a good place to be to get wind of any news about dark arts and all that. 
  • Every Friday night Sirius, Remus and Harry have a movie night and either order take away or make stupid unhealthy snacks - at one point Sirius buys a chocolate fountain just to outdo Remus from the week before when he’d turned up with giant marshmallows and a camp fire. 
  • He takes Harry out to the countryside and teaches him to fly - the first time they go Harry falls off his broom and Sirius ends up with a broken arm because of an attempt to catch him without magic. 
  • They visit James and Lily’s graves every year and the first time that Harry really understands it, he’s 4. He asks why his mummy and daddy have to be in the cemetery and Sirius cries while trying to explain it to him. Harry isn’t sure why, but he hugs him anyway. 
  • When he’s 8 Harry accidentally calls Sirius dad and they both just sort of freeze. He starts to apologise and gets upset and that’s when Sirius realises that he should really open up more about James, because Harry only knows bits and bobs - that his parents died to protect him, that they were the best people Sirius knew, but he doesn’t really know that much about them as people. 
  • They stay up half the night talking about James and how Sirius grew up with him and how his parents fell in love. 
  • He tells Harry that he reminds him of his father, but he also sometimes reminds him of Regulus when he was a kid, in the way he’s terrible at lying and will creep into Sirius’ bed late at night after a bad dream. 
  • He teaches Harry how to transfigure his parchment into a sparrow before school starts and makes him promise to do it in front of McGonagall in the first lesson he has with her. 
  • Harry has a handful of magical friends before he even starts school and meets the Weasley’s when he’s 9. He loves to practice quidditch with them in the garden and Charlie teaches him all about being a seeker and gives him an old snitch. 
  • He keeps in touch with his muggle friends from primary school through letters sent via Sirius and when he’s home for the holiday Sirius organises days out for them. 
  • Sirius is always a mixture of furious and beside himself when Harry gets hurt and if he’s ever called to the hospital wing it takes at least an hour each time to convince Sirius he’s well enough to get out of bed. 
  • The year Remus teaches defense Sirius is always sending him messages to pass onto Harry. Then starts turning up at the castle ‘to see Remus’ but really he’s checking up on them both because he worries more than he’d care to let on. 
  • Every New Year they buy a whole bunch of fireworks and go out into the back garden to set them off at midnight. It’s when Harry’s 15 and has maybe had a few too many sips of Sirius’ drinks that they accidentally almost burn the house down by forgetting they’ve lit one and have to throw it to the other side of the garden and run back inside before it explodes. 
  • Sirius teases Harry about every single crush ever, but is also actually really good at relationship (or friendship) advise in general. 
  • When Harry and Ginny get together he sends a howler that just says ‘FINALLY’ super loudly then explodes into heart shaped confetti. 
  • He just loves this kid so much okay even if they have an argument (which happens quite frequently because they get into petty shouting matches about who the best quidditch player is or what to watch on tv). 
  • Even when Harry is being a teenager and sticking to his room Sirius can’t bring himself to be too annoyed because the way he moans and sighs at him reminds him exactly of what James’ was like at a certain age, so he just smiles through it and ruffles his hair which of course makes Harry moan at him some more. 
  • I’m not even going to go into the sad stuff because no this is a happy AU and no one had to defeat voldemort shhh
  • Sirius would love Harry and Ginny’s kids (though one definitely wouldn’t be names Albus Severus lol), and even though Harry didn’t call him dad the kids still call him grandpa and he spoils them rotten and teaches them swear words in other languages and does all sorts of silly magic for them like vanishing Harry’s chair right when he’s about to sit down.

Hello Harrie! I have this problem where I tend to draw too realistically and too close to the reference I have a really hard time simplifying poses even though I know stuff about gesture drawing but I can't seem to be able to apply it very well. Do you have any tips please ? Thank you very much in advance 😭

try watching this video!

there are more in the series - [], i recommend watching all of them!

peteyprker  asked:

hey! what are your peter + photography headcanons? (just because it pays the bills doesn't mean he can't enjoy it, right?)

Peter enjoying photography!! Yes, yes, here we go:

  • His favourite thing to photography is people/places. Specifically, people/places that mean a lot to him. He doesn’t have many friends, but the ones he does have definitely have to deal with him snapping candids of them. They can’t really say much, bc Peter always takes really nice photos, and he gets this pleased smile as he looks at cute photos of his friends smiling or laughing or in a quiet moment of contentment
  • (After Peter loses people - his Uncle, Gwen, Harry - he takes more photos. He keeps them all. The ones of the people he’s lost become very, very important. Like, a little sacred. Biromantic_Nerd wrote a fic about Peter having a panic attack bc he accidentally deleted one of Gwen’s photos that I’m plugging here)
  • If Peter remained a photojournalist post any identity reveals, he could create the most wonderful, humanising series because he has so many candids of superheroes. He takes heaps professionally, sure, but he has lots of photos of his superhero friends in normal situations. He sometimes ends up taking his backpack full of civvies, his keys, his wallet, his camera, with him after he changes into costume, so whenever he’s in quiet, happy moments, it becomes habit to just. Take a photo. Frozen moments in time.
  • Consider: Johnny Storm atop the Statue of Liberty, snorting into his soda at Peter’s bad jokes. Matt Murdock in pyjamas, half asleep, barely coherent, face bruised, looking annoyed at Peter’s charred attempts to make ‘thanks for letting me crash on your couch after we almost died last night! breakfast. Thor and Bucky and Nat braiding hair in the Tower, trading tips, trading smiles (Peter had to hang upside down for that one, and even then, Nat and Bucky looked up and rolled their eyes at him when the shutter went off.) Tony involved in his work, holos glowing blue around him, chewed pencil sticking out of his mouth, eyebrows furrowed. She-Hulk tearing off a piece of her hot dog and feeding it to a stray dog. She almost crushed his camera when she saw him. Peter had to fight her off with one ketchup stained hand. That was not a fight he won. (She-Hulk is nice; she returned the camera, even if she did steal half his hot dog to feed more stray dogs.) 
  • Consider: Peter keeping all of these photos somewhere safe. They’re kind of damning as far as his secret identity goes, but they also mean a lot to him.
