I wonder if anybody’s actually had feelings for me, like actually got upset or mad over little things I did and got jealous and confused over me and thought about me on a regular basis. I feel like I’m the only person that ever really cares about anyone and that nobody’s ever felt that way for me.
listen man say whatever you want but we all know that lily evans was gonna end up being a radical journalist who reported from crime scenes and wrote blistering comment pieces on the backwardness of the ministry and the prevalence of date rape within the wizarding world thanks to the lax restrictions on love potions and the ethics of being able to erase other people’s memory and the lack of a support system for muggleborn kids at hogwarts and the undemocratic nature of the wizengamot and the need for goddamn primary education for wizarding kids and the need for wizard-muggle integration especially.
and later on she would have gone on to found her own independent newspaper (or possibly a radio show? both?) that sought to report both wizarding and muggle news which had a huge readership bc of all the homesick muggleborns in the wizarding world which ended up being the foundations of the desegregation programme which resulted in total integration by the centennial of her death
she would have been loathed by the majority of the wizarding elite when she was alive but loved by the rest of the population and her friends and family, her husband and kids, would have supported her through it all, and james would actually have become pretty famous and influential himself for revolutionising the auror department and the justice system, but that’s another post. harry potter would have grown up famous, still, but scarless, and what’s more, happy (that’s another post also) and his mother would have gone down in history as one of the greatest journalists who ever lived and one of the most beloved wizarding figures in history.
(but the war killed her when she was 21 and she never got the chance)
do you think clouds look down on people and think “that ones shaped like an idiot”
