Hey Upper East Siders, Gossip Girl here, your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite. What’s making the headlines on my hompage? Harry Potter. Looks like Hogwarts is getting a new student and Little G certainly seems to like him. My sources tell me the two were seen getting cozy in the back of a cab. Who is this ‘Chosen One’ and does he have what it takes to fit in with the likes of the Weasleys and the Malfoys? And who am I? That’s one secret I’ll never tell. You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl.
White shores are calling. You and I will meet again.
I think that the fact that James went into hiding with Lily to share the duty of protecting their son is suchhh an important piece of canon information that gets disregarded too often.
A lot of the time, what I see in fic is see James going off to fight and leaving behind a pregnant Lily, or leaving her with a baby Harry. Aside from the obv sexist bs here that the responsibility of taking care of the child automatically falls on the woman, this goes so against canon!James’ characterisation because one of the biggest things that defined him was his loyalty.
He would never have left his wife and son and gone off to fight. In fact, Harry calls Remus out on this when he attempts to leave a pregnant Tonks to go off with the trio, by saying it’s something James would never have done. And if that isn’t enough to convince you, JKR herself has confirmed that he went into hiding together with Lily.
But they were full-time fighters, that’s what they did, until Lily fell pregnant with Harry. So then they went into hiding. (x)
So there you have it.
