we hate erin

Ghostbusters Hogwarts Headcanons

-Erin and Abby are muggleborns, Holtz is a half-blood, Patty is a pure-blood, and Kevin is a Squib (but he’s the ground keeper’s assistant because the Headmaster felt bad for him)

-Holtz is an Animagus and can turn into a blonde tabby cat

-Holtz’s favorite subjects are Potions (cause it’s easy to make things explode and Professor Gorin is there) and Muggle Music, her least favorite is herbology but only because in the first class she was attacked by like six of the plants

-Erin’s favorite subjects are Defense Against the Dark Arts and Charms, her least favorite is Astronomy

-Abby’s favorite subjects are History of Magic and Charms, her least favorite is Flying because it scares her and she’s relieved it’s not required past first year

-Patty’s favorite subjects are Muggle Studies and Care of Magical Creatures, her least favorite is Dark Arts because it reminds her of the history of discrimination against half-bloods and although she may love history she hates discrimination

-All of them take the extra-curricular class Ghoul Studies once the squad comes together. They love it

-Erin and Abby grew up together, and Abby was the first one to believe Erin’s stories about being able to do magic

-Erin had to run away with Abby to go to Hogwarts because Erin’s parents didn’t believe her about the letter, even after Abby showing them she had one too

-Holtz and Abby are both Hufflepuff, Patty is a Gryffindor, and Erin is a Slytherin

-Erin always wears her uniform exactly to dress code but somehow manages to get a hold of a Slytherin bow tie, Patty wears everything but the tie, Abby wears basically everything but never the robe, and when Holtz actually attempts the dress code she still only wears the tie and the shirt. “Dress code is for dudes” is her response whenever Professors lecture her about it 

-Erin and Abby were best friends until their third year, when they had a huge fight after the Slytherin/Hufflepuff dueling club rivalry led Erin to cast the attero jinx on Abby’s wand the night before the championship, making her wand snap in half at the beginning of their duel

-Holtz befriended Abby after that by not only helping her fix her wand, but by hiring Peeves to pull a slime-prank on Erin, dubbing her “Ghost Girl”

-Holtz didn’t watch the prank happen because she felt awful about it going down, so she never actually met Erin until their fourth year when Erin accidentally happened upon Abby and Holtz’s “lab” in the ROC

-”Come here often?” happened in the ROC too (Holtz scared the living shit out of Erin when she transformed out of her cat form while leaping onto a table) as did Abby and Erin becoming friends again after they all had to stop a boggart that somehow got in (Abby’s fear was abandonment and betrayal, and that made Erin realize what she had done)

-They met Patty when she joined their new “muggle history book club” which was code for “let’s make a club as an excuse to do whatever the hell we want when and where we want it and we know nobody cares about muggle history so let’s just do that” but they let her stay because she was actually really cool and had some good ideas for some of Holtz’s potions and enchanted muggle tech

-They always hang out in the ROC, half of it is covered with white boards for Erin to write her spell ideas on, and the other half is a bunch of random muggle shit, like iPhones and record players, and a potion station is thrown into one corner next to the lounge area. When Patty joins the “club” they let her bring in all the animals she finds and befriends wandering in the Forest because she loves the fairies and sprites

-Holtz met Kevin when she was in the Forbidden Forest looking for potion ingredients, and she instantly befriended him and taught him everything about magic that he wanted to know, including introducing him to the rest of the squad and the ROC where he now basically lives

-Patty and Holtz join the Quidditch team in their sixth year because Patty bet Holtz she could be a good enough Keeper to keep Holtz from scoring on her all year, so naturally Holtz has to prove her wrong

-Every match Kevin, Abby, and Erin wear Gryffindor and Hufflepuff stuff to support both of them

-The first match goes on forever because both Patty and Holtz keep “accidentally” messing up so the score stays even

-Gryffindor wins but only because a bludger hit Holtz square in the face while she was doing a loop on her broom to impress Erin (the bludger totally came from the Hufflepuff beater who was fed up with Holtz for dance-flying and “accidentally” dropping the quaffle when she could have scored on Patty)

-Erin waits in the infirmary for Holtz to wake up and makes sure to cast the Slug Vomiting curse on the beater when he’s flirting with a group of girls in the hallway

-Erin and Holtz totally make out after every Quidditch match, she would never admit it but Erin thinks Holtz zooming around the pitch with her tinted goggles and blowing hair is super hot

-Kevin knows all the secret passageways around the school and somehow knows all of the Prefect routes. His boyfriend also works at Honeydukes and gives them all free candy basically whenever they want

-Holtz builds a special wand for Kevin and helps Erin to enchant it to allow Kevin to cast certain simple spells without needing magic. He cries when they give it to him for Christmas

-Patty and Abby totally know all the house elves by name, and have them deliver food directly to the ROC whenever the squad gets hungry

-Patty is lowkey obsessed with muggle board games, and has Abby and Erin bring some in so they can have “family game nights” together. Kevin kinda sucks at all of them but they always let him win anyway cause they love him

-They all cry graduation day, even Kevin and Holtz. They lay on the Quidditch Pitch that night, looking at the stars and talking about the future, and right then and there they all agree to start a business together

-The business is called “Exotic Creature Collection and Delivery” but after they catch the ghost of a dragon to use in a Triwizard Tournament everyone calls them the “Ghostbusters” much to Erin’s annoyance. “We only caught one ghost! The name makes us sound like we hate ghosts!” “Erin come on it’s a cool name and it’s good for business.” 

-Kevin is apart of the business too but because it’s too dangerous for someone who can’t use magic to go on Creature Hunts he stays at their headquarters to handle the money and keeps track of the requests as best as he can

-After some initial interference from Minister Bradley, the MoM ends up funding certain collections and also hires them for Dementor hunts every time one goes AWOL
