you’re lying if you think minerva mcgonagall didn’t love the marauders to pieces we all know that they were her favorite students we all know she’d let james and sirius get away with little things and let remus off the hook for not having the best quality work the few days around the full moon and make sure peter was always paired up with one of his friends and basically mcgonagall was like the marauder’s extremely strict mother

The Parting Glass

MAJOR AC4 SPOILER ALERT.

If you haven’t finished the game, don’t you dare press play.

You have been warned.

Of all the Money that e’er I had,
I spent it in good Company.
And all the Harm that e’er I’ve done.
Alas! it was to none but me.

And all I’ve done for want of Wit.
To Mem’ry now, I can’t recall
So fill to me the parting Glass
Good Night and Joy be with you all.

Of all the Comrades that e’er I had,
They’re sorry for my going away.
And all the Sweethearts that e’er I’ve loved,
They’d wish me one more Day to stay,

But since it falls unto my Lot,
That I should rise and you should not,
I’ll gently rise and softly call,
Good Night and Joy be with you all.
Good Night and Joy be with you all.

Happy Holidays everyone!

THIS WORLD CUP FINAL LIVE COMMENTARY GIVES ME LIFE

"No, Harry!" Hermione gasped in a petrified whisper; Ron, however, spoke to Black.
  ”If you want to kill Harry, you’ll have to kill us too!” he said fiercely, though the effort of standing upright was draining him of still more color, and he swayed slightly as he spoke.
  Something flickered in Black’s shadowed eyes.
  ”Lie down,” he said quietly to Ron. “You will damage that leg even more.”
  ”Did you hear me?” Ron said weakly, though he was clinging painfully to Harry to stay upright. “You’ll have to kill all three of us!"
