Friendship is Magic

Context: I’m DMing for a party of 3 against an evil cleric, with a sorcerer, war cleric, and rouge.

Sorcerer: I’m going to write an explosive rune on this pillar

Me: Ok then, go ahead

Sorcerer: Now I’m going to use “Charm person” on the enemy

Me: (Rolls for Cleric and loses) He reluctantly becomes your friend

Me: (Actively trying to roll for the enemy to resist and failing)

Sorcerer: Hey Buddy! Check this out! *Points to explosive rune*

Villain: *Reads the explosive rune*

The rune blows up and knocks back everyone, knocking out the war cleric and severely injuring everyone else.

For some reason I keep not wanting to blame Jill… I keep thinking about how she coached us through the World Cup blah blah blah. Then I start comparing the World Cup roster to the Olympic roster and there isn’t a doubt in my mind that the World Cup roster coached them selves through it… But with New/Young players on this Olympic team you can’t expect them to do that… Abby Wambach and Christie Rampone did a hell of a job carrying this team but now they need someone else to do it and Jill should’ve stepped up and did something. This teams midfield took a blow when Lauren left (but thank god for Morgan Brian)… And I’m not saying that we only won because of Wambach and Rampone but they pulled the team together and gave their teammates confidence because their coach can’t. I don’t expect any of the other older players to be able to step up either and take on that role in under a year especially when that role has been filled for the entire time they have been on the team.

Seamus Finnigan

Seamus Finnigan (b. 1979/1980) was a half-blood wizard, son of Mr Finnigan, a Muggle and Mrs Finnigan, a witch, something that gave Mr Finnigan a “nasty shock” when he first learned it. Seamus was a Gryffindor student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He was also the best friend of Dean Thomas. Seamus originally doubted Harry Potter’s claim that Lord Voldemort had returned in 1995, as his mother doubted it, too. However, late in 1995 he eventually joined Dumbledore’s Army, an organisation taught and led by Harry Potter, after apologising to Harry. In 1997, he continued his seventh year at Hogwarts, although the school was under the control of Voldemort. Seamus remained in the D.A. in his seventh year and fought bravely in the Battle of Hogwarts.It can be assumed that he survived the Battle of Hogwarts, since his name wasn’t amongst the casualties listed. It is unknown what his life was like after the Second Wizarding War.

Early life (1980-1991)
“ […] the way Seamus Finnigan told it, he’d spent most of his childhood zooming around the countryside on his broomstick.”
Seamus was born to Mr Finnigan, a Muggle, and his wife, a witch,[5] at some point between 1 September, 1979 and 31 August, 1980. He had an older cousin, Fergus, who would frequently apparate just to annoy him. Seamus had plans to annoy Fergus back, once he passed his apparition test.

Hogwarts years (1991-1998)

First year

“I’m half and half. Me dad’s a Muggle; Mam’s a witch. Bit of a nasty shock for him when he found out.”

Seventh year and Battle of Hogwarts
“Harry cast more Shield Charms, and Voldemort’s would-be victims, Seamus Finnigan and Hannah Abbott, darted past him into the Great Hall, where they joined the fight already flourishing inside it.”
—Description of the second half of the Battle of Hogwarts[src]
D.a. in 1998
D.A. members welcome Harry back to Hogwarts
While Harry, Ron, and Hermione were gone searching for Voldemort’s Horcruxes, Seamus returned to the Death Eater-controlled Hogwarts for his seventh year. He greatly missed his best friend Dean Thomas, who was forced to go on the run because of his presumed Muggle-born status. Seamus was part of the restored Dumbledore’s Army who ended up staying in the Room of Requirement to escape the Carrows. He, along with many others, showed the cost of standing up to the new regime at Hogwarts: his face was so bruised that when Harry returned to the school in May of 1998, Seamus was unrecognisable until he spoke.[11]

When Voldemort’s army attacked the castle, Seamus was among many of those who stayed to fight. During the Battle of Hogwarts, Seamus, along with Luna Lovegood and Ernie Macmillan, saved Harry, Ron, and Hermione from hundreds of Dementors by casting the Patronus to hold them back, before Harry drove them away with his own. His Patronus was in the form of a fox.

Seamus was among the students to witness Hagrid carry Harry’s “dead” body back to the school grounds, when Neville shouted “Dumbledore’s Army,” Seamus was among those in the crowd that roared with cheers, provoking Voldemort. Afterward, when the second stage of the fighting began, and Lord Voldemort himself had stepped in, Harry saved Seamus and Hannah Abbott’s lives when Voldemort had sent a curse their way. Seamus also witnessed Harry Potter’s final defeat of Lord Voldemort and the end of the Second Wizarding War.

Later life (post 1998)
He survived the Second Wizarding War and was seen sitting with Dean Thomas and Aberforth Dumbledore once the battle had ended. It is unknown what happened to him after the war. It can be assumed that he attended the 2014 reunion of Dumbledore’s Army.

There's no doubt that the nans will blame us Sophie "haters" for "ruining" her marriage to the Cumber-Lord when this blows up. By the way, correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Poulet and Jones receive hate from some extreme BC fans simply because they were dating him?
