tonks patronus

I just remembered that time when I first read the scene in the sixth Harry Potter book with Tonks’ Patronus, and Harry noticed it was a big dog creature, and she said that sometimes things happen in people’s lives that can cause a Patronus to change its form, and I didn’t make the connection that it was a wolf because she was in love with Remus and assumed it was a dog now because she missed Sirius a lot

Things that the Harry Potter films left out about Snape
  • Called Lily a mudblood, then tried to cover himself by saying that she alone was different from other muggleborns
  • Didn’t see a problem with his friends performing Dark Magic on Mary MacDonald, compared it to the Marauders pranks
  • Dropped a tree branch on Petunia
  • Attacked Remus in PoA whilst he was trying to explain things and literally said the words ‘I’ll drag the werewolf. Perhaps the Dementors will have a kiss for him too’
  • Continued to refuse to listen to Sirius’s explanation even though he was being compliant and had only once tried to fight back, without magic, after Snape attacked Remus
  • After he found out he wasn’t actually going to get an Order of Merlin, or have the satisfaction of seeing two innocent men in jail, he exposed Remus as a werewolf
  • Ripped a photo of James and Lily and Harry being happy and in love and a family in half and stole the half with Lily on it
  • Actively tried to get the Marauders expelled from Hogwarts
  • Dumbledore was 'disgusted’ by his attitude towards James and Harry 
  • Harry distrusted Snape that much he literally thought he was trying to poison Remus
  • Abused his position as Head of House to unfairly reward points to Slytherin and take points from other houses, especially Gryffindor, far beyond the extent it was shown in the movies
  • Told Neville he would feed Trevor Neville’s failed potion so the possibly fatal results would teach him a lesson
  • Mocked Tonks when her Patronus changed, despite the fact his also changed to match Lily’s
  • Insulted Hermione’s appearance and told her he didn’t see any difference after Draco cursed her teeth to grow and then watched as she ran out crying

okay, so we know that tonks’ patronus changed to a wolf once she fell in love with remus, but what if remus’ changed too? 

he always made sure to cast a non-corporeal patronus - the sight of that damn wolf coming from the end of his wand was almost too much to bear, sometimes. it seemed like a cruel joke. but one day, on official order business, some dementors are sent after him as a diversion. he expects to dispatch of them easily - a patronus charm deals with them easily, and at this point he’s rather adept at it. 

but as he lifts his wand and wordlessly flicks it, it’s as if the wood explodes.

he can’t control it - he hasn’t felt this out of control of a charm since school. bursting forth, cutting wispy trails through the light and bounding at the dementors, is a jack rabbit. remus is so confused and taken aback that the charm nearly dissipates, but he’s able to hold it together long enough for the dementors to retreat. and once they do, the jack rabbit seems to look at him, and he could swear it winks before it disappears in a flash of light.

he only knows one other person that winks. he only knows one other person whose patronus is “some little rabbit,” she had said. “and honestly i thought i was going to get something cooler,” was how she’d continued.

if remus didn’t think he could hide how he felt about tonks before, he definitely couldn’t now.

It was a warm day, more than usually, and Transfiguration class had just ended. You gathered your things, as people around you started to leave.

“hurry up, Y/N! “your best friend said, and you ran out of the class, following her down the hallway. It was crowded, and you held on tight to your friend, as she dragged you through the students, towards The Great Hall.

She started talking about the charms essay you would get back after lunch, and how she knew she had done terrible. You passed the other tables, on your way to the Ravenclaw table.

You passed the Gryffindor table, where three loud boys were laughing. The boys’ names were Peter Pettigrew, Remus Lupin, and Sirius Black. They were currently talking about a certain Slytherin boy, that they had passed on the hallway.

“Padfoot! “a voice yelled with excitement, and a black-haired boy with glasses, and a Gryffindor scarf came running. His name was James Potter, and he was the fourth member of the group.

“Prongs! “Sirius said in a voice to match his friends, as he reached them. James sat down beside Sirius, a smug smile painted on his face.

“you never guess what happened! “James said, and Sirius pretended to think.

“let me guess, Evans rejected you on an even more attractive way than before? “he said, referring to the red-haired Gryffindor girl, that his friends had stopped to talk to. Remus and Peter laughed at Sirius’s answer, James rolling his eyes at his friends.

“yes, but it’s not that! “the excitement in his voice not dropping a single second. “I saw someone… with a dog on their wrist… “

The boys became silence, all looking at James. James himself, looked at Sirius. His’ eyes were wide for a moment, before he found himself again.

“a-a dog? “he asked, his friends nodding. He looked quickly around in the hall, trying to figure out who it was. But he had never noticed them before, so why should he now? Just because he knew they were there? Then again, he had never really looked for them before, only considering his soulmate to go to the same school. But he had always known it was a magical person, otherwise he wouldn’t have a tattoo.

Everybody had a soulmate, even muggles, they just didn’t know it. On your wrist, there were a silver figure of your soulmate’s patronus. It appeared around the tenth-year age, also on muggles that had a magical soulmate.

“wow… “Sirius said, looking at his friends.

“well… congratulations! “Remus said, and smiled at his friend. On his wrist sat a small silver rabbit, James had a doe, but Peter didn’t have one. He had often wondered if he didn’t have a soulmate, but his friends had always assured him that it just wasn’t someone magical.

James had often tried to look at Lily Evans wrist tattoo, but a lot of people were very private their tattoo, and the red-headed was one of them. Sirius looked around again, wondering if his Soulmate also was, and that was the reason he never had seen it before.


Y/F/N talked constantly about her O on her essay, while you didn’t talk too much about your A. It was an early morning, and you were on your way to your first class, defence against the dark arts. There wasn’t a lot of people in the hallway, because your friend had insisted that you had a lot of time. Surprise, you didn’t!

“Hey! “a voice yelled, and you sighed, turning around to the boy you had walked into.

“what? “you asked annoyed, as Y/F/N pulled in your sleeve.

“you can’t just walk into people, without apologizing! “he said with a smile, and you rolled your eyes.

“well, you walked just as much into me” you said. “and now, if you will excuse me! “

You turned around, hurrying down the hallway, leaving the boy and his friends behind.


“rude” Sirius said, looking at the two Ravenclaws left.

“uh, Padfoot… “James said, and his friend turned to look at him. “that was… the one with the dog tattoo”

Sirius turned around again, looking at the Ravenclaw with the Y/H/C hair walking away.


Your friend had left you after lunch. Your next class was potions, a class she didn’t take. You found a table without anybody else, and found your stuff.

You looked up when you heard a loud noise, and the boy beside you smiled before sitting down.

“I never got to introduce myself… “he said, sticking his hand out. “I’m Sirius Black”

“yeah, the guy who walked into me! “you said, looking around for the Gryffindor girl who usually sat beside you.

The boy, Sirius, laughed before taking his hand down. “you didn’t tell me your name? “

“I’m Y/N Y/L/N” you said.

“tell me… Y/N Y/L/N… “he said, placing his head in his hands. “have you ever performed a patronus? ”

You froze by the question, knowing exactly what he meant. Did you know what your patronus was, and did he have the animal tattooed on his wrist.

“yes… I have… “you said, not looking at him. His eyes, however, never left your face. You could feel them, burning in your skin.

“I bet it’s an Y/P” he said, and you turned your head quickly to look at him. your eyes were wide, but Sirius only smiled, before continuing. “mine’s a dog”

You stared at him, not sure if you should believe him, or if it just was a prank. He finally looked away, but only to roll up his sleeve, showing you his wrist.

And yes. On his wrist, were a beautiful, silver Y/P. You stared at it for a moment, before reaching to your arm. You managed to show your wrist to the Gryffindor boy, and his smile became wider, as he looked at you.

He opened his mouth, about to say something, when the door opened, and the professor walked in. he closed it again, but smiled at you, before turning to the professor.

He didn’t say another word to you through the whole class, but made eye contact and smiled at you every second.



I mean, it totally fits right? very small but powerful as hell, harmless until you give them a reason not to be, perfectly capable of inflicting great pain if you bother them. They will literally fight with their lives if you threaten them. Great teamwork, organized, good with nature and food, oh also, have you forgotten?

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. It’s wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway, because bees don’t care what humans think is impossible.

blackdogpadfoots  asked:

What do you think Tonks' Patronus was before the wolf? (I'm super in love with You Could Be Happy, by the way!)

(( OOC: I believe Tonk’s original patronus was a Jack Rabbit. I’ve done a bit of research on the meaning behind this:

Brave, smart and individual, those with the rabbit patronus have a uniquely pure soul.

This enables you to see the good when others cannot. Your bravery and honest nature enable you to stay clear headed in difficult situations. 

Quirky, you do not care about following the crowd, nor should you, as you share your patronus with Luna Lovegood.

I like this analysis a lot, as I feel it relates pretty well to Tonks. She is certainly able to see the good in other people - especially when they cannot see it in themselves *cough* Remus *cough*

I don’t think she’s given enough credit for her bravery or quick-thinking, either. Tonks wasn’t a young girl who joined the Order on an act of rebellion - she was one of the most commended Aurors in the books, hand-picked by Moody, and she was damn good at what she did.

And we all know for sure - Tonks was never one for following the crowd. ))

Snape's Patronus

Okay, maybe I’m looking into deep about this, but I’m getting a little salty about how everyone is saying that since Snape’s patronus is a doe, its like saying he was more obsessed with her than in love with her.

Now, hold up! ✋ Where in these books does a patronus reflect what someone’s obsession and love is?

Nowhere. A patronus is not a symbol and representation of love. It can be depending on the person, but not always. A patronus is a representation of someone’s happiness.

When Albus asked Snape the iconic “After all this time?” It wasn’t just asking Snape if he still loved Lily. It was practically asking “After all this time, Lily is still your happiest memory?”.

Snape’s patronus didn’t just reflect as a doe because he was in love or obsessed with Lily, it was because the time he had spent with her was still the happiest in his life.

Thats why some patronuses can change, like Tonks did when she fell in love with Remus Lupin. That became her new happiness and her new patronus reflected it.

Harry was happiest protecting the ones he loved and remembering his parents, who protected him, which is probably why his was a Stag like his fathers, and probably won’t change because he will want to continually protect people.

While most peoples patronuses are probably produced from memories of love, we have to remember some wizards are incapable of love, like Voldemort, Grindelwald, and even young Dumbledore. And their happiest memories were probably of success rather than love.

The point is, Snape’s patronus is a doe because Lily was his happiest memory, not just simply because he loved her.

anonymous asked:

Where does it say that patronuses could be human? I never heard of that before. Did JK said it somewhere?

It’s a Fake Fact! I got mixed up when that original post was written - sor some reason I thought Tonks’ patronus became Lupin when she was crushing on him, not a wolf that was obviously Lupin’s werewolf form. Someone actually corrected me on it the day after that was posted! But…it happened to become one of our more popular posts, and now I feel awful for accidentally spreading fake trivia.


Rightio listen up:

If two people have matching patronuses, it isn’t because they’re wildly in love, it’s because one of them wants the other and can’t have them. When Remus was continuously rejecting Tonks, her patronus changed to match Remus’s. Snape’s patronus had always been a doe because Lily cut ties with him in fifth year, and he desired her.

When Sirius left his safe so-called home in June 1996 he knew it was dangerous but he knew as well that this was the only way he would feel useful again. Sitting in that house he grew up in all day would have made him go mad sooner or later. He hated it there. Accompanying the others to the Ministry of Magic was the best thing he could have done. Even when Bellatrix’ spell hit him and he fell back into the veil he thought about how right his decision was. He would go. But Harry would live. And so would Remus. From far away he could hear Harry’s scream. Sirius wasn’t dead. Remus was right about that. But he was in a place he couldn’t come back from.

It was June 1998 when Sirius feet were standing on solid ground again. He didn’t know how he managed to get out nor did he remember what had happened in the place where he had stayed for two years. He didn’t even realise time had passed. It felt like it had only been a few seconds. Holding his wand tightly he looked around. Everything looked like it had back then, as if the battle just have ended and everyone had left. What had happened? Where was everyone?

Arriving at Grimmauld Place he found the house empty and dusty. Nobody was here and nobody had been here for a while. At least not lived here. He could see some traces of people who had been visiting this house. But hadn’t it looked different when he left? The Order had lived here. They had brought a warmth to that place that he never felt before. Now it was cold and dark again. Where was everyone? Where did they go after the battle in the Ministry? But sooner or later they would have to come back. They just had to. Where else would they go?

Keep reading

Sometimes I cringe when I see a post with some sort of touching tribute to Remus made by some of the other characters and they almost always include a wolf, because it’s like no one remembers how much Remus hated being a werewolf, how much he hated that side of him. He even hid his corporeal Patronus because it took the form of a wolf and he was repulsed by anything wolfish – and, of course, he didn’t want people to guess the truth. And, yes, I know his nickname was Moony, but that name came from when he was messing around with the other Marauders – they could say things to each other which no one else could. And I know being a werewolf doesn’t make you a bad person, and that Hermione will have eradicated anti-werewolf legislation by now. But for Remus personally, it was  a side of himself which he never came to terms with, not fully. So when I see posts with Tonks or Harry or even Remus giving someone else some sort of token with a wolf on it as a symbol for Remus, sometimes I do find that a bit wrong, a bit jarring. Because throughout his life,his secret life as a werewolf followed Remus around and he detested that part of himself. But in posts dedicated to him, it’s almost like that’s all anyone can say about him – that he was a werewolf. And I think that’s sad.
