frank is probably the guy who gets really talkative and emotional when he’s drunk and like 9 times out of 10 it’s about alice and the others are just like ”ffs frank not again” like arthur weasley is probably the worst victim of this trait
"SHE’S SO BEAUTIFUL MATE"
"frank you’re crying on my jumper"
"HER EYES ARE LIKE STARLIGHT"
"frank we have talked about this"
james and frank wasted together and talking about how beautiful their girlfriends are though
He Doesn’t Like Yelling: A Oneshot
Professor McGonagall was having a really bad day. A student had vomited in her morning class, the Daily Prophet was abuzz about a Death Eater attack, and Professor Dumbledore had held a staff meeting about pay-cuts. To make matters worse, her office now smell liked dung! The two teenagers didn’t seem to mind. She had a feeling that they were used to the residual smell. She peered down at them, looking for any signs of guilt. James Potter adjusted his glasses and Sirius gave a stifling yawn.
"I have just about had it with you two!" Professor McGonagall barked, “I’m at my wits end! What were you thinking? Dropping a Dungbomb onto the head of another student?”
"Well," James mused, “We saw his head…and we realized that it was severely lacking a Dungbomb.”
"That’s enough!" Professor McGonagall snapped, “You could have injured him! Not to mention the blatant violation of school rules! Never in my years of teaching have I seen two students with such a disrespect for authority! I am deducting twenty-five points from each of you and am putting you in detention for a week!”
"Fine," Sirius mumbled, “Can we go?”
"No, you may certainly not go!” Professor McGonagall cried, “You ought to be ashamed of yourself, Mister Black!”
"Professor,” James muttered.
"Not a day goes by where you don’t get into trouble for something!”
"Would you kindly lower your voice, miss?” James abruptly asked.
Professor McGonagall was caught off guard.
She blinked and stammered, “Ex…excuse me?”
"Your voice,” James quietly said, “Would you mind lowering it?”
She flushed as she realized that the volume of her voice had gotten out of control, a side-effect of the overwhelming exasperation. She rarely yelled at her students. Then again, she was sure that James and Sirius were used to getting yelled at. She didn’t understand why the former was giving her such a piercing look.
She glanced at Sirius and felt a flurry of surprise. The teenager seemed to be trembling. His eyes, which ordinarily sparkled with adventure, were sparkling for a different reason.
"Mis…Mister Black?” Professor McGonagall bewilderedly asked.
"Sorry about the Dungbomb,” Sirius mumbled.
He abruptly jumped to his feet and walked away.
Professor McGonagall stared after him, utterly shocked. She did enjoy it when a student showed a bit of remorse. But that wasn’t what she was seeing. That wasn’t it at all. She glanced at James for an explanation.
James shrugged and muttered, “He hates yelling.”
"What do you mean?"
James merely stuffed his hands into his pocket and said, “So, fifty points and a week of detention? Seem doable. Good afternoon.”
Professor McGonagall called his name but he too ignored her. It wasn’t out of disrespect. Professor McGonagall knew that she was his favorite professor. Sirius’ as well. But James had other priorities to tend to. And so she let him leave without another word.
She sank into her chair.
He hated yelling…
The revelation hit her like a hex. She had heard rumors about the inhabitants of Number 12 Grimmauld Place. She had overheard whispered conversations between Sirius and his friends. Sirius rarely spoke about his homelife. He always clammed up at the mention of his parents. And never before had Professor McGonagall seen somebody look so happy to return to Hogwarts.
A few minutes ago, she had silently remarked that James and Sirius had certainly faced yelling before. Now there was no doubt in her mind that the latter faced it more than she had thought. Much more.
She wasn’t aware that she was walking until the door clipped her shouldn’t. She didn’t so much as flinch.
Instead, she went out into the courtyard, where the two Gryffindors were sitting on the bench. James had his hand on Sirius’ shoulder.
Professor McGonagall cleared her throat and said, “Boy, I am sorry that I lost my temper in there.”
She glanced at Sirius who remarked, “Did you? ‘Didn’t notice.”
James chuckled and Professor McGonagall’s mouth twitched.
"Nevertheless,” she gently continued, “I am still holding you accountable for dropping that Dungbomb. The punishments still stand.”
James groaned but she was happy to see that Sirius looked considerably more relaxed. It was amazing how a simple tone and volume of voice could have such a big impact.
"Your detentions will begin tonight,” Professor McGonagall softly declared, “Until then, enjoy the rest of your day.”
James sighed and mumbled, “Thanks, Professor.”
Sirius’ tone was warmer as he mumbled, “Thank you, Professor.”
"You’re quite welcome.”
- DON’T IMAGINE HIM LETTING HIS LITTLE SISTER RIDE ON THE BACK OF HIS BROOMSTICK.
- DON’T IMAGINE HIM SKETCHING OUT MAPS FOR HIS BROTHER BEFORE HE STARTS FIRST YEAR.
- DON’T IMAGINE POTTER VS. WEASLEY QUIDDITCH MATCHES DURING THE SUMMER.
- DON’T IMAGINE HIM STANDING UP AND CHEERING WHEN ONE OF THEM GETS SORTED INTO A DIFFERENT HOUSE, HE DOESN’T CARE IF IT’S SLYTHERIN, HE’S JUST SO PROUD AND THEY LOOK SO SMALL SITTING ON THAT STOOL WITH THE HAT SLIPPING DOWN OVER THEIR EYES.
- DON’T IMAGINE HARRY POTTER AS A BIG BROTHER EVEN THOUGH YOU KNOW IF LILY AND JAMES HAD LIVED THEY WOULD HAVE HAD SO MANY BABIES
PROBABLY SEVEN BECAUSE WE KNOW HOW THIS GOESBUT JUST DON’T DO IT.
Favorite missing book quotes → Ron’s dueling advice
#But can you imagine if James had still been alive?#A letter arrives from Hogwarts saying Harry was caught out of bed after curfew and has detention#and then a letter from Harry arrives explaining that he had to do it#because he had to beat Draco in a duel.#And Lily reads it and just sits there with her head on their kitchen table going ‘oh god why did I have a child with you’#while James dances around the house singing about how amazing their son is.#Harry gets a reply a few days later#a letter from his Mum saying she’s disappointed and those rules are there to keep him safe and he should obey them#(Hermione reads that over his shoulder and practically cheers)#and from James#a gigantic box of chocolate frogs and a pack of stinkbombs or something with a note saying ‘for Draco’ (via thankyouforyourcooperation)
And then a very detailed letter from Sirius explaining to Harry 101 ways to beat someone in a duel and a list of useful hexes
this is my favorite post in the history of ever.
#can we just stop and appreciate Harry’s face in this scene? #I mean, he’s literally waiting for someone to say something about Hermione’s blood status #she’s the only Muggleborn in the slug club full of purebloods and well known people #and Harry’s there just like “say something I dare you” #and if you look at her face, you can see the actual hesitation and somewhat fear of what will happen next after telling of her parents occupation #Harry truly is acting like Hermione’s big brother, which I absolutely love #i just adore this scene
I love that Neville looks genuinely interested in what hermione’s talking about.
Harry: I wish a motherfucka would talk shit right now
Say something, make my day
Nevile looks like he’s just made a private mental note in flaming red ink: WHATEVER THE HELL A DENTIST IS, DON’T MESS WITH ONE.
#this is a harry potter blog #seriously any profession that turns out a kid like hermione #must be utterly terrifying #neville finds out it involves rearranging people’s teeth with wires and drills #and drugs and scrapy knives #and is like AHA #I KNEW IT#I KNEW THEY WERE TERRIFYING #hermione granger: horrifying storm of a girl since day one #(so do the muggles have to be hunted down for that or does the government assign you targets) he asks her one day #she squints at him for a long time #’they volunteer’ she says eventually #neville shivers #muggles are HARDCORE
Including tags because oh my fucking god.
The first tag I tracked on tumblr was the wolfstar tag and I think that says quite a lot about me.
You know what I want to see? I want to see row after row of Gryffindor students in the stands at a rivalry Quidditch game. Slytherin v. Gryffindor. I want to see every single one of them eat one of those candies that made Ron sound like a lion. I want the lions to roar in support of their team. That is what I want to see.
Can’t sleep because hooray, insomnia rearing its head the night before a planned all-nighter! Ugh.
So I’ve now tentatively plotted out the first three years of scheduling at Hogwarts. First year is pretty straightforward, really (this almost entirely matches what’s mentioned in…
