Marlene: What happened between me and Sirius was a mistake. I don’t want anything else to do with it and I am sure he doesn’t either.
Lily: (comes in)
Padfoot sent you something
Marlene: Probably just a friendship bear
James: Lily, read the note.
Lily: (reading) Marls, if…
I’m not sure how to ask this..but here’s my best shot.
Be the Brittany to my Santana..
Be the Kurt to my Blaine..
Be the Quinn to my Rachel..
Be the Annie to my Finnick..
Be the Mike to my Tina..
Be the Beauty to my Beast..
Be the Lily to my James..
Be the sun to my moon..
Be the melody to my harmony..
Be the light to my darkness..
Be the winter to my spring..
…But most of all..
Be the reality to my dreams..
Lily and James fics are the worst, because you know they get together, and you know they love each other
and you also know they die
and that hurts so much
Snape called Lily a mudblood - sure, but James did some equally bad things.
Really? Really? JUST. Really, huh?
Because calling somebody a derogatory slur, becoming a Death Eater, bullying your loved-one’s son and all of his friends is equally proportionate to picking on your enemy but then saving their life and changing for the better.
Why is no one in the Jily fandom talking about the fact that we’re getting a PLAY written with JKR ABOUT LILY AND JAMES
Jily shipping is great, but then you realize that the Lily and James that sass each other in TLAT are the same ones that say “You’ve been so brave, sweetheart” and “You’re nearly there, son” in Deathly Hallows and it makes you want to stab your own neck with a pen and it destroys your life and you wonder why you live in a world where that is a thing that exists.
It’s still my OTP though.
- Because James loved her so much that he spent years pursuing her without ever giving up.
- Because their banter is hilariously adorable.
- Because Lily Potter is the perfect name.
- They got married and had a beautiful son. Said son saved the entire wizarding world. That’s some kick ass genes right…
