Thank you darling. It is by consequence of the “search” feature that everything I tagged with “ayesha hates on snape” so people coul blacklist ends up showing up in all “snape” searches. It’s not something I would’ve chosen per se, because I get people telling me not tag my hate when I literally created that tag so people wouldn’t have to see it, but all the same it’s made it easier for people who would like to see those posts.
But yeah, I’m glad you enjoy my posts! It’s never posting too frequently when you’re shutting the down the romanticizing of problematic behaviour.

1. Opportunism is the conscious policy and practice of taking selfish advantage of circumstances, with little regard for principles. (Harry Potter)
2. Jealousy is a secondary emotion and typically refers to the negative thoughts and feelings of insecurity and fear. (Ron Weasley)
3. Egotism is characterized by an exaggerated estimate of one’s intellect, ability, importance, appearance, wit, or other valued personal characteristics. (Hermione Granger)
4. Anger is an emotion characterized by antagonism toward someone or something you feel has deliberately done you wrong. (Draco Malfoy)
Said Slytherin, “We’ll teach just those whose ancestry’s purest.”
Said Ravenclaw, “We’ll teach those whose intelligence is surest.”
Said Gryffindor, “We’ll teach all those with brave deeds to their name.”
Said Hufflepuff, “I’ll teach the lot and treat them just the same.” (x)
Am I the only one extremely prepared for Emma and the Wicked Witch to start bursting into Wicked songs?
In all seriousness, I always imagined that Remus’ lycanthropy brought out the best in the other Marauders and showed their softer sides. Imagine James and Sirius sneaking down to the library at night to read a stack of books about werewolves and staying up all night. Imagine Peter being a nervous wreck the first night that they transform but sucking it up because this is for Remus. Imagine them fretting every time Remus looks pale and peaky. Imagine them learning exactly what medications and potions that Remus has to take and keeping extra stashes in their bags. But then it gets better. Imagine them wanting to donate to a bunch of charities about werewolves. Imagine them not wanting to be conspicuous, so they donate to every single wizarding charity that they can think of. Imagine them going to St. Mungo’s to hang out with children who have just been bitten. But again, they don’t want to be conspicuous, so they just casually hang out with every single child on the ward. Imagine Sirius transforming into a dog and letting the children cuddle up next to him. Imagine James becoming kinder and gentler, less arrogant, more mature and ultimately, a much better person. Imagine Peter overcoming some of his fears. Imagine Remus being forever-grateful because of how his friends dealt with his lycanthropy and changed his life.
Sometimes I get sad but then I think about James Potter with a baby in one hand and a kitten in the other.
I would watch a spin-off dedicated to Hook trying to adjust to modern life
No but with all these charts going around for the moviepaloozaparty group I want to make a giant chart compiling all of the data with time-zones, heights, birthdays, other pages (like DeviantArt, etsy, etc.) and brotp url mashups listed.
(I don’t even think 4 on 1 is an accurate assessment. Remus and Peter didn’t participate. Two-on-one or one-on-one, with the advantage of Snape being willing to use Dark Magic.) I won’t deny that James had some fucked up behaviour at fifteen, but the last thing he was is a coward.
Would a coward offer a place for his friend to live despite said friend’s dark family ties?
Would a coward pull his enemy back from danger at the risk of his own life?
Would a coward fight for the Order of the Phoenix, an underground rebel group, in the middle of a blood war for which he had the option to opt out?
Would a coward marry a Muggle-born in that blood war?
Would a coward be frustrated that he couldn’t do anything to help in the war while in hiding?
Would a coward face Voldemort without his wand to give his wife and son a modicum of hope of escaping?
The answer to all of these questions is no. (What a coward might do, though, is be ashamed of his friends, join a terrorist organization to gain more power, bully children using his position of authority and continue to mess up the lives of people he hates despite them having had terrible lives anyway. Bravest man Harry ever knew, my foot.)
