threstals

I'm a bit dissapointed at my patronus.. My friend got a cat and my other friend got a fudging Threstal and mine's just a dolphin ;_;

here’s some fun facts for you:

  • dolphins are super intelligent like they even display signs of culture w h a t
  • they’re also very playful which is why people love them so much
  • they can communicate with each other by making clicking noises and whistling how cool is that ???
  • some dolphins cover their snouts with sponges to protect them when they’re foraging #smart
  • they’re very altruistic and will stay behind to help the injured
  • when they sleep they only rest half of their brain at a time so they’re always prepared for predators 
  • dolphins stick with their families for ages, around 3-8 years which shows some of that hufflepuff loyalty
  • back to the communicating thing apparently they have unique whistles so they can recognise each other !! essentially dolphins have names and if that’s not cool then I don’t know what is
  • also I’d just like to point out how hufflepuff dolphins are; they’re loyal to each other, they’re friendly, and they work as a team
  • be proud of your patronus yo
Newt Scamander x Gryffindor!Reader Headcanons!

Newt x Gryffindor!Reader Headcanons

-The two of you meeting when you were in the same herbology class, as the boy with the wild hair and a steady hand at caring for plants caught your eye.

-you being the first to say hello, as he was incredibly shy and nervous

-talking to him the over the next few days las you both left the great hall, with him stumbling over his words frequently

-the shy boy, Newt, eventually became more comfortable with you, as you were not as
intimidating as your house seemed

-him pulling you aside, asking if you wanted to sneak out of the castle and meet some creatures he found in the forest


-the two of you meeting frequently, studying everything from threstals to the fairies


-Newt cheering for you at every quidditch game you played in, even if it was against Hufflepuff


-you, high on excitement from winning, making the first move and kissing him after he rushes to congratulate you


-he is shocked, but nonetheless proceeds to kiss back

-his hand running through your hair as caged feelings of affection break free

-the two of you are talked about a lot as you hold hands confidently in the halls, it wasn’t negative chatter, just shock since no one thought the two of you would get together

-Newt’s confidence soaring, also lots of hand holding under table tops

-Neck kisses in halls where no one is looking

-spending the holidays together, wrapped up in coats and scarves as you go off to play in the snow

-when you find out that Newt is being expelled, you turn angry as your emotions are fueled, but then burst into tears, not wanting your love to leave

-he reassures you that you will meet again as he urges you “to be strong, for the both of us”

-Years later, you’re out at the leaky cauldron and you see a mysterious man with a case walk in


-Newt’s eyes mirrored yours and suddenly all of you emotions pour out as you sobbed into his arms

-Newt whispering gentle things to calm you down, peppering you with fragile kisses

-Newt never taking his eyes off you, as you are still the most beautiful being that he’s ever seen

-the two of you catch up and talk about all of the adventures you’ve had, only to leave the building to embark on more, but this time, as a pair

Top 5 Luna Lovegood moments

Luna my precious darling girl!!

1. Going to and fighting at the Ministry of Magic in OOTP. Not only does she come up with the threstal idea but she shows so much courage here!! I mean she’s 14, she’s only been friends with Harry and co for like a year and she risks her life with them. Not to mention she kicks ass and shows amazing talent and resilience for a witch of her age. 

2. Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same: Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends… friends… friends… Harry felt a great rush of affection for Luna.This is the most beautiful thing in the world and I feel so much love for Luna every time I read this part oh my god, she’s amazing. I want Luna to be my friend.

3. Comforting Harry at the end of OOTP. I love her friendship with Harry, it’s so special. She’s a big comfort to Harry here. I love what she said, it’s just so Luna and it gives Harry hope. 

‘Oh, come on. You heard them, just behind the veil, didn’t you?'…'they were just lurking out of sight, that’s all.’..

She walked away from him and, as he watched her go, he found that the terrible weight in his stomach seemed to have lessened slightly. 

4. Rita stared at her. So did Harry. Luna, on the other hand, sang ‘Weasley is our King’ dreamily under her breath and stirred her drink with a cocktail onion on a stick. THIS IS THE MOST LUNA THING IN THE WORLD I’m CRYING

5. Her efforts in the Battle of Hogwarts. This is one of my favourite quotes of the whole series

That’s right,” said Luna encouragingly, as if they were back in the Room of Requirement and this was simply spell practice for the D.A., “That’s right, Harry… come on, think of something happy….”

“Something happy?” he said, his voice cracked.

“We’re all still here,” she whispered, “we’re still fighting. Come on, now….”
 

Once again Luna is a source of strength to those around her. She’s one of my favourite characters because she’s got this unique view of the world and she’s carefree and she believes in so much it’s inspiring. She’s hilarious but she’s also someone you can learn a lot off. 

When Fred II was in his second year at Hogwarts he thought his Dad had lost his marbles because he seemed to spend a couple hours a day watching and feeding an imaginary pet. he never understood this until he found out was a Thestral was in his fifth year.
