why do we need to watch the sky to enjoy the stars when the ultimate star is me
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter Nineteen
↳ The Servant of Lord Voldemort
"Remus!" Pettigrew squeaked, turning to Lupin instead, writhing imploringly in front of him. "You don’t believe this… Wouldn’t Sirius have told you they’d changed the plan?"
"Not if he thought I was the spy, Peter," said Lupin. "I assume that’s why you didn’t tell me, Sirius?" he said casually over Pettigrew’s head.
"Forgive me, Remus," said Black.
"Not at all, Padfoot, old friend," said Lupin, who was now rolling up his sleeves. "And will you, in turn, forgive me for believing you were the spy?”
"Of course," said Black, and the ghost of a grin flitted across his gaunt face.
didn’t I say the marauders were happening? Gods I am overdoing it again
Anyway, I guess all my love for them that I haven’t been expressing lately (for a while really) just ended up shown in this drawing haha:D (damn is this okay I really REALLY love my own drawing like idk I am not sure ahah I am just happyyyyyy)
also I am proud because I can’t draw backgrounds for life and this turned out fine.
Adding close-ups because the main picture is just too big for tumblr. No close-up for Peter alone because nobody wants to look at you Peter
The Marauders at Hogwarts (part 2).
Mr.Moony,Padfoot and Prongs
I’ve been re-reading Harry Potter (and by re-reading I mean skipping around to all of my favorite parts because by this point I have the first four books more or less memorized and the last three are well on their way there and that can sometimes make a straight reading a bit tedious) and was sad to discover that while I used to have all of my own images in my head of what the characters looked like, those images are starting to be replaced by the actors from the movies. So I’ve been trying to draw the characters in my head before I forget them.
Sometimes the easiest characters to draw are the ones who are only briefly alluded to because you know less about them and are forced to fill in the blanks with your own ideas. Long story short this ended up with me deciding to draw the Marauders at age 15 in the style of 19th century portrait painters. As one does.
Except, not Peter. Lily would have made a better Marauder than him, so I drew her instead. Stupid Peter. The alternate universe story I use to cheer myself up with after reading the last book is that Peter comes clean at the last second and James’ generation goes on the horcrux hunt and defeats Voldemort and Harry grows up happy with three other siblings.
Seriously, that last book, just— I can’t even read it most of the time, too depressing.
Anyway, since I always like to see other peoples’ interpretations of the characters, here are mine! I always figured Sirius to be kind of “pretty” looking, cuz of the hair. James would look red-faced and healthy from being outdoors a bunch. Lily I wanted to look friendly and kind of mischievous. And Remus would just look very put upon, having to deal with James and Sirius, haha. I just realized he’s the only one I didn’t draw smiling, poor guy.
Remus is usually my favorite character in the series (the list jumbles around a bit depending on which book I’ve just finished). I have a great appreciation for people who stay reasonable even when they have to deal with a lot of crap. It’s another reason I don’t really like reading the last book. As much as I love Tonks, their whole subplot rubbed me the wrong way— I guess I would have preferred if he’d been portrayed as a little more enthusiastic about the whole thing, it’s like every time Harry talks to him he’s nervous or miserable, and Tonks just turns into the hidden pregnant lady. And then with Harry railing at him for abandoning her— yeah it was stupid, but the guy’s been dealing with this awful disease/curse thing his entire life, it’s a bit much to moralize at him for panicking. It was all just… ehhhh.
Not that it will stop me from re-reading all the books again next year, or from spending countless hours drawing fan art…
my headcanon sirius has a magic tattoo of a moon on his upper left shoulder and it changes to match the phase of the moon so he never forgets even in azkaban bye
That is one of the best headcanons I’ve ever heard of.
reminder that in POA sirius broke into hogwarts on a full moon night so he didnt have to confront remus and also presumably so that no faculty could blame remus for helping him into the castle since he was too busy being a werewolf (◕‿◕✿)
