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*

I’m so glad you found enjoyment in my slightly rushed writing, but I’m even more so glad that you also happen to be a Steven Universe fan! ･:*+.(⁎⁍̴̆◡⁍̴̆⁎).:+ Whenever I think about how everyone is constantly hating on our boi Quiri, SU always comes to mind. It’s amazing how almost each & every character, villain or hero, gets a redemption arc/full fledged back story that explains why they made the decisions they’ve made, or why they act the way they do, it isn’t just dumped into a Wiki page for fans to hunt down! No! It’s right there, to show that change is possible. It still hurts to know that that change was never an option for Quiri.
Now imagine you’re moving into your new Defense Against The Dark Arts classroom, when suddenly, you come across a little something hidden away beneath some old papers:
You know the drill, it’s Head Canon time!
-Not only does Sybill collect the many teacups she’s come to own over the years, but also the teas she uses to fill them(the bagged variety tend to be her favorite). From an exquisitely fancied variety of Blueberry Merlot, Darjeeling Quince, & White Ambrosia to the simpler Matcha, Jasmine, & Oolong it’s hard to deny that she’s spent a majority of her youth devoted to the art of tea collecting when not poring over her beloved crystal ball & reading self taught fortunes aloud. Gilderoy initially thought it was a bit weird & even pointless when he first found out about her “strange hobby” , but didn’t pay it too much attention afterwards. Quirinus on the other hand, was greatly appreciative, fascinated even, by her unwavering dedication to the unique art form. Opting for more knowledge of her years’ work, which Sybill was gladly willing to share. They spent their spare time by the common room fire, sipping tea, & studying between the lines of fascinating topics whilst Sybill voiced her story of “how it all began” , before she’d stray off topic & go on about all her favorite teas & how utterly wonderful they are for hours on end instead- much to the amusement of Quiri. These regular “study sessions” would normally stretch long past midnight & would begin to attract more & more attention as time went on. Perhaps Quiri wasn’t the only one who was interested in hearing the story of Sybill’s tea collection after all. Turns out Gilderoy & a majority of the supposedly sleeping Ravenclaws had been listening in on their hours long conversations ever since they started the daily(& nightly)ritual. Sybill had to admit that she felt honored to know that so many of her housemates found her stories(or more accurately described, ramblings)about tea interesting. So after she finished being snarky with Gilderoy(who was yet again responsible for getting everyone else busted), she kindly invited any willing listeners to join her & Quiri for a late night cup of tea. Ever since then, the familial bond which had formed between the Ravenclaws became quite a commodity, & it was perhaps this fortunate chain of events that led Sybill to her utmost goal: becoming a professor.
-At this point in time, Sybill & Quiri’s bullies had already started targeting Gilderoy, however, they were soon sad to find that nothing really got to him, not as long as he was hiding behind his shield of narcissism of course. So instead of casually advancing on him like they always did with the other two, they simply exaggerated a series of scowls every time he passed by(not noticing a bloody thing as usual). In fact, most of them were either annoyed by him or jealous of him, & after they realized that he was practically hanging around the two “biggest Ravenflaws” of the whole school 24/7, they basically made to subtly back off, giving Sybs & Quiri a much needed break. However, the made up insult of “Ravenflaw” took no time to spread. So instead of being known as “the two weirdos & lover boy” they were now cursed by the crude title of the “Ravenflaw Trio” .
-Sybill’s tea collecting was actually the cause(& more rightfully, inspiration)for Quiri’s fascination with tending to & pressing wild flowers. An enjoyment that only brought him more teasing & snide remarks, but nonetheless made him happier than he usually was when not in the company of his best friends.
