So cool!  Lily outgrew Snape alright.  And James can only have been made Head Boy because he contributed the Potter resources to the Order.

Wow-well done. Did you use paint, colored pencils...? Love the use of color.
Would you mind if I used this in a slideshow/video(no profit, just for entertainment)?
Oh, and I agree with Ran-ism. You could, as they say, cut through the tension with a knife" or something like that.

I'm speechless. It's just like JKR discribed it, you made that well ! Expressions show everybody's feelings in a great way ! Potter seems just so proud and vain ; Lily disappointed, sad, and still surprised ; and Snape just seems like "I don't know you anymore. you're just another Mudblood we should kill"...brrr, terryfing, so spiteful !
Amazing word, so awesome :love:

But... he wasn´t headboy, I think.I don't know about Lily, but James wasn't. I mean, that's not important, but I think it was only Lupin.

Yes, James was Headboy. Check the Lexicon.
Reply
:iconfeozzyblack:
FeOzzyBlack Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2007
Well, This is weird...

In Lexicon I found : "School awards, etc.: Head Boy, 7th year at Hogwarts. If Molly is correct (OP9) and all Head Boys were Prefects in their 6th year, this would apply to James as well. "

But I remember reading in OP that James wasn't Headboy ( I am from Brazil, I don't have the English version from this book). I can be wrong, but I remember that Harry was wondering why Dumbledore named Ron and later Harry, Lupin and Sirius were talking and Sirius told Harry that Lupin won the badge, because he wasn't a troublemaker.

But I am thinking know... If James was Capitain of the Quidditch team, he would be "the same" as a prefect (Hermione said that to Harry when he was capitain)... I don't know. And I found on [link] that "A Head Boy is a male, seventh-year student who has authority over prefects at Hogwarts. Most Head Boys were once prefects (except James Potter who was not a prefect). James Potter, Bill Weasley, Percy Weasley and Tom Marvolo Riddle were all Head Boys." WEIRD!

I know this is old, but I was just skimming through the comments and wanted to reply:
In the first book Hagrid tells Harry that Lily and James were both Head Boy and Girl in their time. (Although Lupin was a prefect, James was made Head boy.) :)

When I was in the 11th grade, I had a classmate named Nathaniel, a weedy, sullen, not-quite-Goth kid from a broken household. He wasn't much to look at and he didn't go out of his way to make friends- he fell in with a bad crowd for a while, but even they rejected him when he showed that his grades were more important to him than cutting class with them and smoking on the steps of a church across the street.

Nathaniel was in my Human Biology class, where we dissected individual organs, frogs, and pigs (I didn't think about the moral implications then- nowadays I don't think I'd be able to dissect an animal). He and I were the two best students in the class, and we often worked together on dissections. After a while, I think he developed a little bit of a crush on me, and I'd write him little notes of encouragement- "Another A for the best team ever! Woot! Megan."

He didn't sit by me during normal classes, so he had to cross the room and often force my tablemates Eric and Ray to move so that we could work together. Eric and Ray were everything that Nathaniel wasn't, and they rubbed it in his face pretty often. I'd tell them to shut up and was told to butt out.

Eventually, Eric and Ray pulled a very cruel stunt- telling the dean that Nathaniel had a gun in his backpack. Given Nathaniel's reputation as an angry loner and zero-tolerance laws, he was arrested by the campus cop and nearly expelled. As soon as he was found innocent, the punishment was reduced to a week's suspension (he had apparently gotten violent with the dean and the police officer), but even when he returned to school with his name cleared, students would openly call him a "psycho" and threaten to scream if he came near them.

Nathaniel worked alone on the next dissection. I couldn't get him to talk to me all through class, and when I finally tracked him down at lunch, he demanded to know why I hadn't stood up for him to the dean. I said I would have only gotten in the way, and he implied that I must have believed the story. I said I'd talk to the dean and tell her that Nathaniel really wasn't a bad kid, and he retorted that he didn't need help from a "fucking bitch" like me and that if I wanted friends I'd be better off sticking to my friend Jamila and her sister, whom he called "a drooling moron". Jamila's sister is developmentally delayed, and his comment made me so angry that I told him to not bother trying to partner with me anymore.

That was basically the end of the friendship. He passed me a note of apology a few days later, but I was still so mad at him that I rejected him again. Nathaniel and I never spoke again after that. I saw him alone on campus throughout our senior year, but I never approached him. He would still watch me from across the quad, though, and sometimes I wondered if he still had a crush on me.

Naturally, I thought of Nathaniel again during "The Prince's Tale". I suppose there are people like him everywhere, and that the story is fairly common, but it made me feel a lot of regret and sadness for him. I wonder what he's doing now, if he's happy, if he still has the notes I wrote for him when we were friends. I realize now that I overreacted and left him with no one at all (not even analogues to Avery, Mulciber and their ilk), and if I could go back and change what I did I'd do it in a heartbeat.

Thank you for this beautiful - though painful - memory, Megan. Yes, stories like that are quite common, and you only understand what's going on when it's too late. During the first year of university I refused to go taking a coffee with a colleague of mine, because I considered him "dangerous", and now I regret it. I was amazed when, after many years, I met him during a comic convention (I adore comics) with his girlfriend. I didn't consider him at all a guy to like comics! Eheh, first impressions are not always the most correct ones.

Love it! I luv what your wrote. You could almost put it as a book if you remember exactly what happened after you graduated and what the teacher said word-for-word but anyway, he shouldn't have called you a...effin' b and even though I hold grudges like that also, I would've forgave him. I'm not sayin' you did the wrong thing, just giving my opinion on what I would've done.

I think if I hadn't broken it off and if he hadn't said what he said, I might have grown to love him back.

I suppose I was more like Lily than I realized.
