"it is easy to forget how full the world is of people, full to bursting, and each of them imaginable and consistently misimagined"

They always accused her of having inherited the worst bits of her mother. It was always her mother’s fault; nobody seemed able to imagine George Weasley being as driven as Angelina Johnson, never mind the fact that George had opened his own shop in Diagon Alley without even finishing school. No, Roxanne’s personality, they decided was a hand-me-down of Angelina’s. Fred (the second, named after their dead uncle) was the peacekeeper, the quiet one, the unassuming one. Roxanne was the spark in the tinderbox. The Slytherin foil to her Hufflepuff brother. She grew up accepting the comparisons to her mother and father until it occured to her, sitting her O.W.Ls: why were their lives always measured by their parents’ and not by their own merits?

excepttheeyes:

  • He was the tallest of the Marauders until James and Sirius hit their growth spurts in 4th year.
  • He oozed sarcasm.
  • He was generally the “quietest” of the group, but he was always the one with the quickest and wittiest remark and it would sometimes surprise people and Sirius, James and Peter would stand behind him grinning appreciatively. Sometimes his comebacks were so good people found themselves slow clapping without even realizing it.
  • His school uniform was always straight and orderly for classes but the second he was done with dinner he would untuck his shirt and loosen his tie and undo all the buttons on his sleeves and sigh in contentment.
  • He loved sweaters and had a collection of ugly ones because “they tickled him.”
  • He cried when he laughed really hard.
  • He would sigh really loudly if someone said something incredibly stupid.
  • Being a werewolf caused him to be a few degrees warmer than everyone else (baby Harry loved this but that’s a whole different list of headcanons).
  • He had really long fingers and eyelashes.
  • He was the best of the Marauders at not getting caught and managed to get away with a surprisingly low amount of detentions in comparison (less than 10 in all 7 years).
  • He could draw well.
  • He got an unfortunate amount of headaches.
  • His hair was always a rats nest when he woke up and he didn’t even bother with it on Sundays.
  • He had absolutely no idea how to respond when a girl was flirting with him and was often completely oblivious to it.
  • If someone said something funny and it caught him off guard he would do this squeaky giggle and was always embarrassed when he did so naturally it became a thing to try and make Remus giggle.
  • He mastered the puppy dog eyes.
  • He generally did a good job staying calm when he was angry but on the rare occasions he blew up it was scary to be around because it was so surprising to see him like that.
  • He and Lily always got on well, becoming really good friends in 5th year. He was also one of the first people to realize Lily fancied James.
  • He practically inhaled his food (I could say he wolfed it down but…). Everyone else would be on their third bite and his plate would already be clear.
  • He slouched terribly.
  • His smile made girls sigh.
  • He would grin and skip around like a child when he was proud of himself or excited about something.
  • The pranks he came up with were ironic and incredibly clever.
  • He always won Exploding Snap. Always. Eventually people didn’t even want to play it with him anymore.
  • Dumbledore liked to check up on him regularly and would invite him to his office for a cup of tea.
  • He almost always finished his homework the night he got it and Sirius, Peter and James teased him for it but Remus always made a big show of lounging around and yawning widely while they were all rushing to get everything done last minute and they’d eventually start throwing things at him to get him to piss off.

Fred and George, however, found all this very funny. They went out of their way to march ahead of Harry down the corridors, shouting, ‘Make way for the heir of Slytherin, seriously evil wizard coming through …’

thats-slightly-raven:

People who have a superiority complex based on their enjoyment of vintage music or books are some of the most annoying people in the world and if I ever hear you ridiculing someone just because they may not enjoy listening to the beatles whilst reading to kill a mockingbird and sipping a cup of hibiscus green tea i will literally come to your house and staple your nipples to your elbows 


Tonks stood just behind him, her bright bubble-gum-pink hair gleaming in the sunlight filtering through the dirty glass station ceiling, wearing heavily patched jeans and a bright purple T-shirt bearing the legend THE WEIRD SISTERS. Next to Tonks was Lupin, his face pale, his hair graying, a long and threadbare overcoat covering a shabby jumper and trousers.
