I made an old lady blush today at work because she ordered two senior coffees and I said “SENIOR ? I’m sorry miss, i’m going to have to ask to see some ID.” and she covered her mouth and went “Oh dear me” and couldn’t stop smiling
Bless your soul
India’s Academy of Sorcery boasts an impressive display of flashy colours, from enchanted saris that shift colours sporadically throughout the day, to the lavishly painted exterior of the academy which is situated in a nondescript location along Ganges River. Due to the frightening rate at which the school’s ancient mango tree (jokingly nicknamed “Mammoth Mango Machine”) produces mangoes, students have to endure the perpetually evolving art of mango cuisine at least five days a week. Every year, to the students’ great enjoyment, classes are halted for Diwali to make time for various competitions that take place: firework flourishes and charms for upper-year students (bonus points if it doesn’t set any part of the school on fire), and lantern designing for lower-year students (use of animals, alive or dead, is forbidden).
“I distinctly heard the barman in the pub last night refer to us as Sassenachs.”
“Well, I hope you didn’t take offense. It only means englishman, after all. Or at worst, outlander.”
ϟ 95) When Teddy was an infant, his hair turned color to match that of the person he wanted to hold him. This worked well when he wanted his godfather, which was often, but it became incredibly confusing when he sought a Weasley. There were many hasty rounds of pass-the-baby-because-dear-god-stop-the-crying.
What about when his hair turned pink and they could do nothing about it :’(
what have you done
ϟ 91) As he wandered the damaged halls of Hogwarts after the battle, Harry came across Professor McGonagall, who was attempting to repair a suit of armor. The weary witch looked for a moment at this boy who was far too young to have done so much, then she put her arms around him and hugged him gently. When she let him go, she kissed his forehead, right over his scar, and said, “I have never in my life been so proud of anything.”
ϟ 45) Molly was never quite sure exactly when she started considering Harry her own. She does, however, remember the moment she became aware of it. It was the day she found out Harry was being forced to compete in the perilous and potentially lethal Triwizard Tournament against his will. Her first, fierce thought was “Not my son.” It surprised even her, but she embraced it without regret. She knew then that Harry would always be one of her little boys.
ϟ 117) Salazar Slytherin may have built the Chamber of Secrets, but the other founders had their own hideaways as well. Helga built the Room of Requirement to help anyone in need. Godric built the underground chambers (which would house the Philosopher’s Stone) so his students could test their mettle against unknown challenges. And as for Rowena… well no one’s found her chamber. She was too clever in hiding it.
ϟ 83) When Harry began filling out the official paperwork for employment as an Auror, he was startled and even a bit shaken when he realized he didn’t know what to put for a living address. It had always been number four, Privet Drive or Hogwarts. He supposed he could claim 12 Grimmauld Place since it belonged to him, to which Ron said he was being a git and told him to put down the Burrow.
