“Anyway — Harry,” said the giant, turning his back on the Dursleys, “a very happy birthday to yeh. Got summat fer yeh here — I mighta sat on it at some point, but it’ll taste all right.”—Rowling, J.K.. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Kindle Locations 623-625). Scholastic. (via dblankroom)
But surely, with hormonal teenage boys and girls living together, Hogwarts must have had sex education.
Maybe there’s a contraceptive ward….
When I write fanfiction about stuff like this, I presume there is a potion or something, or at least a spell to help /safe/ sex. But let’s be honest a spell that pushes kids apart is hysterical but unlikely (the kids in GoF only got pushed apart during the Yule Ball when Snape caught them). But just imagine being in the room of requirement or some shit and Dumbledore needs to take a piss so your perfect sex place is a bunch of chamber pots and Dumbledore walks in. HAWKWARD
it’s a body image day, body body image day yeah! :D Hip bones, and rib bones and arms looking to skinny and I think my head is too big for my body but I like my boobs and my butt. BUT THE REST OF ME JUST SUCKS D:

James Potter was asshole when he was 15. That doesn’t mean he was Voldemort incarnate and/or an abusive husband to Lily. He joined the Order, not because he loved Lily, but because it was right. He became friends with Remus Lupin and accepted him even while knowing about his condition. He was incredibly loyal and trusting. People tend to overlook that. Of course, he has flaws. He was a conceited bully at times when he was younger and that’s not right. But Snape bullied students who were less than half his age. Before people spew hate, they should at least try to avoid being a hypocrite. Calling a student an idiot multiple times isn’t right (in the case of Neville Longbottom), insulting an orphan’s dead father is low no matter how much you hate said father, and what teacher calls their student an insufferable know-it-all and insults their physical appearance (“I see no difference”)?
On the case of Sirius Black, well, many Snape worshippers tend to excuse Snape from bullying because of his horrible childhood. Sirius’ childhood was plain awful tpp. He belonged to a family who beheaded house elves! His cousin killed him without an ounce of guilt. He’s not going to be the paragon of moral virtue being raised like that but it seems like he does try to do the right thing. Even with Kreacher, he’s never cruel like the Malfoys. He doesn’t ever make Kreacher punish himself. The worst Sirius ever did was bodily throw him from the room. A big difference from telling him to iron his hands. Sure he was immature and reckless. He grew up in a family of dark wizards and was thrown into Azkaban right after his best friends died and his other best friend framed him. What else would someone expect? A childhood like his probably did affect him negatively throughout life.
Personally, I love Snape as a character. But when fellow Snape-lovers make him out to be perfect, it’s not doing justice to him. He’s a horrible person, probably the only reason he turned on Voldemort was his love for Lily. He didn’t mind having James and Harry die. But that’s the beauty of it, love is his saving grace and he did incredibly brave, selfless things just because of that. He’s messed up because of his childhood, because of his unresolved issues, but that’s what makes him so fun to love.
