Because of the J.K. Rowling tweet there’s a lot of chatter about James S. Potter. But it’s ridiculous how some fans basically ignore that he isn’t only Harry Potter’s son; he’s also Ginny Weasley’s son.
Parts of the HP fandom have a weirdly obsessive need to dismiss Ginny’s importance in the series, and especially her importance in Harry’s life. It’s like she’s invisible even when they’re talking about her children.
The Potter kids are as much thanks to Ginny, as they are to Harry. Even Teddy Lupin is seemingly a surrogate 4th child to her. Without her there wouldn’t be a lot of the Post-DH canon. That needs to stop being dismissed.
If you don’t think Harry refused to give James Sirius the Marauders Map in his first year because then he and Ginny (but mainly Harry) could keep watch on their little baby and check where their son was in the castle on any time, then you are wrong
103. In the ravenclaw common room there is an alcove, maintained by several volunteers, that showcases various creative works of the students. There are short stories, paintings, musical compositions, poems, crafts, architectural designs, etc. There is even a box where students can submit constructive criticisms or just compliments to the creators
He and Hermione live in London City now. It’s close to their jobs, and Hermione likes to live close to the muggle world.
After the first week Ron enchanted his windows with a silencing charm. he comes from the countryside and hates the loud noise from the city.
During the second week he buys a CD with nature sounds. The next day he has to buy it again, after Hermione had to explain CDs don’t work in a gramophone at all.
He buys a television, so he doesn’t need to go to the muggle pub to watch football (“It’s okay, I guess. sure, there’s only one ball, but that only makes it easier to follow”)
After a while he surprises his mother with his new cooking skills. he is almost as good as she is, but he does it Muggle style. He used to hate it, but it slowed down his hectic life as an Auror. He’s also a fan of Gordon Ramsey, because he swears a lot.
Ron teaches Hermione how to play chess, Hermione teaches Ron how to use muggle machines. Ron hates computers (too many buttons and combinations) but learns to love the phones and coffee making machines.
ginny laughing and chasing teddy and james around the house– james has hitched a ride on teddy’s back because “i don’t WANT to take a bath, mama!”, and teddy, the little traitor, has joined his side instead of ginny’s
ginny showing lily how to ride a toy broomstick, and when lily pouts and claims that she wants a real broom, ginny promises her one in a few years, “when you’re big enough” (she caves after three months and gets lily one for christmas, and mother/daughter quidditch practice becomes a nightly occurrence)
ginny frowning at al as he claims that he certainly didn’t sneak into james’ room and steal all of james’ socks. “definitely not. no– mom! you’re giving me the look! i just needed one pair–”
ginny and lily sitting on the floor of their living room, ginny telling her stories about boys who she’d cast the bat bogey hex upon, and how she ended up in the slug club for it (lily begging her mum to teach her how to do it)
ginny kissing james’ scrapes better after he fell off his broomstick for the first time, and making him promise to be more careful. “your dad and i both got plenty of injuries playing quidditch. it’s a very dangerous game, james. i know that it’s in your blood, but please be more careful. your dad fell fifty feet once in a storm, and would have died if dumbledore hadn’t slowed his fall. it’s not all fun and games once you’ve got broken bones.”
ginny winning an important quidditch game, and her kids running out onto the field after the game, harry right along with them, because they’re all so proud of her
ginny and teddy sitting at the kitchen table the day before his first day at hogwarts, just following their daily routine. he spends even more time at their house during the summer than usual, and so the quiet mornings with just him and ginny are normal. ginny sitting down across from him, taking his hands into hers, and just telling him how proud she is that her first son is headed off to hogwarts, and that she knows he’ll be great, and that his parents would be so proud. when she gets a letter a few days after he left, reading “mum, dad, i got sorted into hufflepuff! just like my mum!” ginny feels pride swell in her because she knows that tonks would be so proud.
ginny reading lily and al and harry the tales of beedle the bard, all of them curled up on the couch on the first night that james and teddy are both off to hogwarts, all of them missing their two boys
