characters that go from villain to weird family member give me strength

Marauders Appreciation Week [1/7] - One Order Member
The school greeted Minerva McGonagall’s return with delight. Minerva threw herself into her work, proving herself a strict but inspirational teacher…. The death of Dougal McGregor, however, although traumatic, seemed to free Minerva. Shortly after Voldemort’s first defeat, Elphinstone, now white-haired, proposed again during a summertime stroll around the lake in the Hogwarts grounds. This time Minerva accepted. The marriage (cut tragically short, though it was destined to be) was a very happy one. The accidental death of Elphinstone from a Venomous Tentacula bite, three years into their marriage, was an enormous sorrow to all who knew the couple. Minerva could not bear to remain alone in their cottage, but packed her things after Elphinstone’s funeral and returned to her sparse stone-floored bedroom in Hogwarts Castle. Always a very brave and private person, she poured all her energy into her work, and few people - excepting perhaps Albus Dumbledore - ever realised how much she suffered. [x]
Todd Lockwood's amazing animations of dragons in flight. The red dragon is conventional - if any dragon can be considered conventional - but the gold dragon with that extraordinary wing and helix-ripple, not at all…
I just spent ten minutes staring at these. Thank you Todd!
I have always loved gold dragon wings! It’s so awesome to see them moving!
I will do my best to carry you when you need a lift
Comfort you when you’re sad
We all feel down now and then
But I’m here if you need me
My favourite part in Order of the Phoenix is when Harry and Sirius are playing hide and seek in the Ministry and Sirius is being silly behind the veil then he jumps out at Harry like “Haha found you!” and then they laugh and high five and go out for ice cream at Fortescue’s.
a simple yet beautiful reminder, it could be you! be thankful for everything you have.
A reminder that homeless people aren’t just people who are “too lazy to go get jobs” or didn’t try very hard in life.
…their presence was his courage, and the reason he was able to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
Thank you, anon!
15. What did you dress up as on Halloween when you were eight?
The Virgin Mary. No joke. My sister went as an angel. My dad even made a headpiece to look like the glowing spheres around their heads in all of the traditional Christian artwork, but my sister said I looked like Jupiter.
16. Have you read any of the Harry Potter, Hunger Games or Twilight series?
All of them.
17. Would you rather have an American or British accent?
I think I’ll stick with American. There are some British accents that are really nice to hear, but then I’d have to deal with too many BBC-Represents-The-Entirety-Of-British-Life people flipping out about the way I talk. No fun.
18. Did your mother go to college?
Master’s degree, yo.
19. Are your grandparents still married?
Both my grandfathers are dead, so no. But one set stayed married until he died, and the other divorced before I was born.
20. Have you ever taken karate lessons?
You know it! I quit just before my black belt, though. Maybe I’ll go back to martial arts sometime….
