Dumbledore: So our last DADA teacher turned out to be possessed by Voldemort, I'll take the safe bet and choose this numpty
Dumbledore: I guess things didn't go to plan last year, but this year they will, there's no one I trust more than Remus Lupin.
Dumbledore: OK so the werewolf part didn't work out, but I'd trust Alastor with my beard! There's no way this'll end badly
Dumbledore: Apparently there were a good few ways that could've ended badly, lets hope the Ministry sends someone good this year.
Dumbledore: So that pink toad wasn't so great, Snape's been after the position for years, let's give it to him
Voldemort: *takes over school*
Dumbledore: fuck this shit I'm out of here

today i bring you a new idea:
pocket size quirrell after a lesson gone wrong .
most likely one of the students pronounced a spell wrong , or read an entirely wrong chapter for the lesson .
quirinus is teaching the students how to make a shield , but in order to keep the students out of harm's way , he is the one behind the shield . so they can see how it looks , feels from outside , and works . the twists and flicks and hand motion while the shield spell is being cast .
most likely getting interrupted in the middle of casting , and the student ( aka his ' enemy ' ) pronounces the spell wrong
so now we have pocket size quirrell !
but considering what the ' curse on the position ' had done to people in the past , quirinus is quite lucky .
if only people would stop picking him up and leaving him in far too high places . ( this goes for you too Severus . put your co worker down ! it's impolite to pick them up without permissio— oh merlin no SEVERUS DON'T PUT HIM IN A JAR WHAT THE HELL— )
quirinus can often be found on the shoulders of students when they have a question , or laying on sybill's head . ( what ? she has really fluffy hair it's like a giant bed ! and he can hold onto her head band thingie wrapped around her head in case he falls ! )
this pissing voldemort off even further , because they are constantly being watched and can't do anything while this small ( angst material if you want to think of Voldemort making quirinus suffer , both emotionally and physically— oh god i thought of an angst idea hold on )
some time pass , and voldemort had enough . if no one turns quirinus to normal , and he cannot leave without alerting Dumbledore of his presence , he will force them to . one way or another .
so , he starts sucking on quirrell's energy .
( i would like to think , that the reason his body was slowly dying was because quirinus was fighting back . he refused to willingly accept the soul , and share a piece of his magic with him , so Voldemort , in order to stay in that body , had to suck quirrell's energy slowly but surely , killing him )
nobody knows what is happening , because quirrell wouldn't let them do a full scan , or let anyone check either ( always thinking the worst , what if they just kill him to get rid of Voldemort , what if they lock him away what if they don't believe he's innocent—— and Voldemort in his head is NOT helping with the thoughts . )
cue a very worried Hogwarts , because their professor is slowly dying .
the ending is up to you 👁️👁️
