Hogwarts AU - Hogwarts Academy of Magic for Young Witches.
"Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same; Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends…friends…friends…friends… Harry felt a great rush of affection for Luna" — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

“You’re a wizard, Harry! ”
Wizards can make fun of muggles all they want but the joke’s on them because phones can do in two seconds what they use owls and high-level magic to do, AND we have tanks. Try to avada kedavra a tank you stick-wiggling nerds

idk man, imagine showing Arthur Weasley a gif for the first time. At first of course he’d just think it was a normal wizard photograph, but then you’d explain that muggles made it and his heart would just explode with joy over these muggles making such amazing shit even though they have no magic at all. How amazing. How inventive.
Maybe whenever you’re feeling bad about yourself imagine how much Arthur Weasley would enjoy meeting you.
as an alternative to harry potter AUs please also consider an AU where your faves grew up as the books were coming out. your faves buying house scarves on ebay, your faves running around with sticks and playing pretend, your faves getting their moms to make butterbeer, your faves going in a big group to see the movies (your faves slowly growing out of it but crying happily when they clean their room one summer and find all their books and merchandise and sit there looking through it all, 20-something years old and remembering)
if hogwarts is the safest place in the world then what kind of shit goes down at the other wizarding schools
i basically feel like nearly everyone else is wrong about sorting???? it’s a weird inconsistent mess in the books so i just sort of worked out my own way of making it work…….
anyway over the past few years i’ve tried to chat about it but no-one cares about hp anymore lmao, except then there’s the best tag,
