This candid gained great publicity in magical society throughout all of Europe; quickly becoming one of the most famous pictures of the decade, and globally recognized in the wizarding world as an icon of french fashion.

THE DRAUGHT OF LIVING DEATH is an extremely powerful sleeping draught, sending the drinker into a deathlike slumber, similar to suspended animation. The potion seemed difficult to concoct, since Hermione Granger, a prodigious potioneer, who managed to concoct the Polyjuice Potion in her second year, had some difficulty doing it. The Wiggenweld Potion is capable of reversing the effects of the Draught. The Hag Leticia Somnolens used the Draught in an attempt to kill a princess who made her jealous. A prince who placed Wiggenweld Potion on his lips revived the princess with a kiss.
Imagine Harry and Ginny a few months into their marriage and they’re so happy and in love and then one day they go shopping for food and household items and Harry just casually grabs certain items before Ginny hisses at him to "Check the prices, Harry, God! That bed set is far too expensive, we’re not going to have anything left to get the food with!" And Harry starts to laugh and say "We don’t have to worry about -" and then he stops and he and Ginny look at each other. And Harry realizes that she’s grown up having to measure out all her money and decide what she can and cannot have for a certain week or month or year. And Ginny realizes that she is actually no longer obligated to worry about money ever again.
Imagine Harry and Ginny eating dinner together and Ginny’s telling him about certain meals her mum made and teasing him about how he wolfs everything down and "Honestly Harry, you’re worse than Ron!" and Harry retorts laughingly "well old habits die hard, I had to fight Dudley for meals all the time, you at least knew you were going to eat every day!" And Ginny’s grin starts to fade and she asks "You…you didn’t get to eat everyday?" And Harry realizes what he said and he changes the subject quickly and Ginny looks at the plates in front of him and resists the urge to pile on some more potatoes. And the next day Vernon Dursley’s car is egged.
Imagine Harry and Ginny both suffering from night terrors and PTSD and agreeing that maybe going to that therapist Hermione recommended isn’t such a bad idea, and that’s how Thursday night became Therapy Night when they go out to dinner or to the pub after each session and agree that they need to talk to some Healers about introducing these sessions since therapy is still widely seen as muggle nonsense in the wizarding world.
And Ginny murmurs over her fire whiskey that sometimes she can still hear Tom Riddle murmuring in her ear, and Harry whispers that he dreams about running after his mother and father and Sirius and Remus as they disappear behind the Veil in the Department of Mysteries and he doesn’t know if he wakes from terror or regret about not making it through. And they go back home and hold each other closer that night and both wake up with raging hangovers.
thinks about trans albus severus potter shedding the weight of her awful name and choosing one more fitting like literally anything else
#ok but maybe she chooses to honor better heroes#names herself minerva with a shivering tongue and harry has never seen such happy tears from mcgonagall#or andromeda because teddy’s grandmother was the sweetest bravest slytherin she’d ever known#chooses from the legions of dead she never got to admire chooses from an eternity of heroes whose tragedy she chooses to take on#whose bravery embeds itself in her name and in her#and she may not have been the first to bear the name she chooses#but it’s her name and she chooses it#and they are names that it is an honour and privilege to bear (queer-werewolf)
Can we think about Lily Evans and about how she was a very pretty white girl from a presumably secure class and financial background?
And how she went to Hogwarts and fell in love with magic and then discovered, after all the sneers, the cold shoulders after she told people her parents jobs, the silent avoidance and casual mockery, of the flippant reassurances from some of her new friends that they "didn’t even think of her as a muggleborn!", that in this world she was a minority?
And that she came back home and most likely quietly and quickly got very involved in helping out and getting behind social movements that called for better treatment for the minorities that she had known existed in her world but had never truly seen before?
Because Lily had her eyes opened to magic, and she realizes that she never wants to close them to anything else.
