comealongraggedypond:

I feel like when Snape says “James Potter fancies you” to Lily, it’s largely assumed that he’s telling her something that she already knows and/or Snape is aware of this because James is very obvious about his feelings for her. But there’s a lot that’s not being accounted for in that assumption.

Harry looked down at his father, who had hastily crossed out the ‘L.E.’ he had been embellishing, jumped to his feet, stuffed his quill and the exam paper into his bag, which he slung over his back, and stood waiting for Sirius to join him.

Clearly, he doesn’t want anyone to see that he’s been doodling Lily’s initials so he probably tries to be casual about the fact that likes her around people other than his friends.

"What is it with her?" said James, trying and failing to look as though this was a throwaway question of no real importance to him.

Again, trying to be casual; I really think that it’s quite possible that the scene by the lake was the first time it was public knowledge that James liked her, and even then he was attempting to make it seem like it wasn’t a big deal to him. So if that’s the case, how else would Snape know about the crush?

“I know your theory,” said Lily, and she sounded cold. “Why are you so obsessed with them anyway? Why do you care what they’re doing at night?

Huh. Obsessed with the Marauder’s whereabouts.

"It served him right," [Sirius] sneered. "Sneaking around, trying to find out what we were up to … hoping he could get us expelled …

Snape spies on people?!?!? Whaaaaaat no way I mean it’s not like he’s spent his entire life doing such a thing - oh wait. We all know that Snape spied on Lily before Hogwarts, this proves that he spied on the Marauders as a student at Hogwarts, he was a spy after Hogwarts during the tail end of the First War (passing on some info to Dumbledore after Voldemort decided to go after Lily) and then a double agent during the Second War - that’s more than half of his lifetime as a spy. Dude’s for real like a professional stalker. So I’d literally put money on the fact that he probably overheard James discussing his crush on Lily or talking very highly/lovingly about her while with his friends one night while following them around.

So for the love of all things Harry Potter can we not with the whole James-asks-Lily-out-everyday, James-harasses-Lily-about-his-crush, James’-feelings-for-Lily-are-common-knowledge, James-doesn’t-know-the-meaning-of-the-word-subtle, James-is-a-stalker, etc troupes? They’re more than a bit stale and very, very inaccurate.

Dear Prongs,

No surprise, your and Lily’s son turned out to be the best kid in the world. Not exactly sure how much of a part I had to play in that, but I hope you’re happy and not too deeply regretting making me Harry’s godfather instead of Moony. I’d say I’ll try to keep him out of trouble more, except he does a good job of that himself. He’s a good kid, and a damn good Seeker, too. You’d be proud of Harry, if you were here, Merlin’s Beard you would be proud.

Cheers,
Padfoot

HARRY POTTER HISTORY MEME → three young versions of characters from the books [2/3] » Eva Green as Bellatrix Lestrange

Bellatrix Lestrange (née Black) was a pure-blood witch, the daughter of Cygnus III and Druella Black and elder sister of Andromeda Tonks and Narcissa Malfoy. She started her education at Hogwarts in 1962 and was Sorted into Slytherin house. After graduating from Hogwarts, she became a Death Eater, fanatically loyal to Lord Voldemort. She was one of the few known females in the group, as well as among the most dangerous and sadistic of Voldemort’s followers. During the final battle, she was the last Death Eater standing, apart from Voldemort, but was eventually killed in a duel by Molly Weasley.

"Potter, you cannot win against me! I was and am the Dark Lord’s most loyal servant. I learned the Dark Arts from him, and I know spells of such power that you, pathetic little boy, can never hope to compete!"

"That’s me," said Moody unnecessarily, pointing at himself.  The Moody in the picture was unmistakable, though his hair was slightly less gray and his nose was intact.  "And there’s Dumbledore beside me, Dedalus Diggle on the other side…That’s Marlene McKinnon, she was killed two weeks after this was taken, they got her whole family.  That’s Frank and Alice Longbottom—poor devils, better dead than what happened to them…and that’s Emmeline Vance, you’ve met her, and that there’s Lupin, obviously…Benjy Fenwick, he copped it too, we only ever found bits of him…"

"That’s Edgar Bones, brother of Amelia Bones, they got him and his family too, he was a great wizard…Sturgis Podmore, blimey, he looks young…Caradoc Dearborn, vanished six months after this, we never found his body…Hagrid, of course, looks exactly the same as ever…Elphias Doge, you’ve met him, I’d forgotten he used to wear that stupid hat…Gideon Prewett, it took five Death Eaters to kill him and his brother Fabian, they fought like heroes…"

"That’s Dumbledore’s brother, Aberforth, only time I ever met him, strange bloke…That’s Dorcas Meadowes, Voldemort killed her personally…Sirius, when he still had short hair…and…there you go, thought that would interest you!"

Harry’s heart turned over.  His mother and father were beaming up at him, sitting on either side of a small, watery-eyed man Harry recognized at once as Wormtail: He was the one who had betrayed their whereabouts to Voldemort and so helped bring about their deaths.

Tell them whatever you like. But make it quick, Remus. I want to commit the murder I was imprisoned for.
