"She… she got hit, said Harry. The realization crashed over him: He felt ashamed of himself as the tears stung his eyes. The owl had been his companion, his one great link with the magical world whenever he had been forced to return to the Dursleys.”
The Ravenclaw common room is located high up within a tower and known for its panoramic views of the school grounds. It is a large circular room filled with bookcases and blue furnishings. It is also one of the only common rooms to feature a statue of their house founder. The entrance requires no password but the solving of a riddle asked by a bronze eagle knocker. Incorrect answers result in having to wait outside for someone else to answer their riddle successfully. Once inside you can sit under the impressive starry domed ceiling and listen to the relaxing sounds of the wind whistling around the exterior of the tower windows.
forget saving the wizarding world, naming his firstborn after them, heading the auror office, etc., I would love to see the reunion/conversation in which dead Harry tries to explain to his dad and godfather that he named his other son after snape
#he saved me dad #he sold you out to fucking voldemort son #he loved mum dad #so did our cat you wanna name a kid after him harry #he spied for dumbledore dad #he participated in mass murder and only switched sides because he felt guilty for causing your mum’s death son #he was the bravest man i ever knew dad #that is because you didn’t know me you tosser (via prongsmydeer)
#sirius refuses to speak to harry for a very long time and when harry tries to talk to him#sirius just gives him the dirtiest look #the dirtiest most disgusted look#(and he’s good a pretty good disgusted look) #and says#harry i tried i really did i lived in a cave for you i ate rats for a while and this is how you return the favor#harry’s like ‘but i named one of my kids after you i think you’re brave’#and sirius just looks at him #looks at him and says#’have you met remus fucking lupin
Thus the muses spake:
"JK you dealt kinda shittily with Dumbledore and other diversity aspects, so we’re gonna go ahead and fix this ourselves"
In other news A+ headcanons from the HP fandom.
I love Harry’s face. Everyone else just kind of looks down, all serious, but Harry’s like “The kind of school is this?!?”
What Harry found most unusual about life at Ron’s, however, wasn’t the talking mirror or the clanking ghoul: It was the fact that everybody there seemed to like him. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, pg. 42
sirius gets a baby girl and names her orange and he’s just so happy and proud and he tells everyone he meets hey this is orange, she’s the new black
you have no idea how angry this makes me
and when sirius dies she will be the orphan black
