I just read the most wonderful fic idea in the Spacebattles forums. Harry goes back in time to his first year, but there's a big difference. Every important character of each generation is switched to another one, with three exceptions: Tom Riddle, Severus Snape and Harry Potter. So for example, James and Lily went to Hogwarts with Tom Riddle. Hermione Granger and Fleamont Potter went to Hogwarts with Snape and were his best friends (also Harry's parents, which was a total mindfuck). Harry goes to Hogwarts with Minerva McGonagall and Walburga Black. And those are just the names we get in the short snippet the author wrote. While the specific characters the author chose to switch are interesting, I'm more fascinated in the general idea of doing a generational character mix up. How would different characters interact if they met each other on a level playing field, both at Hogwarts and as teenagers? How would James Potter and Lily Evans react to Tom Riddle? How would Harry interact with Minerva? It's all so fascinating. And one can choose any combination one wishes. So creative. Harry going back in time is also a useful writing tool, as the writer can use him to highlight the differences between the AU and canon.

Just as I Am: A Memoir by Cicely Tyson
Published two days before her death, Just as I Am: A Memoir by Cecily Tyson is an incredible read. You won't want to pass this autobiography by. #cecilytyson #justasiam #harpercollins #bookreview #roots #sounder #janepittman #bookstagram #bargainsleuth
I love reading Hollywood biographies and autobiographies. Usually I walk away thinking that said actor/actress/singer is a horrible writer, even though their life story was interesting. There have been a few surprises, though, like Alex Trebek’s The Answer IS… (review here), Sally Field’s In Pieces (review here) and Elton John’s Me (review here). Add Cicely Tyson’s to the list.

Leon Regulus Black
Tumblr media
So this is my little OC, Regulus' son.
I honestly believe that if Reg had lived through both wars, he would have settled down with a nice person and had the sweetest child ever.
If we are talking about the name: i have this headcanon that when the Black brothers were little, maybe like Sirius' first holidays after going to Hogwarts, the older brother talked about the fact that no one had such names as their family and they were silly. And Regulus argued that he liked their names very much.
Then Sirius would say: "Ok, i only like one. If i ever have a son, i'll call him Leon! Imagine mother's face haha!"
And Regulus got a little upset and pouted: "Well, of course you would..."
"Not because of Gryffindor! Well, not only because of it... I mean, your constellation is Leo! And you'd be a Godfather! A good freaking one if getting me out of trouble says anything!"
Regulus embraces his big brother tightly because even though Sirius found friends in Hogwarts, he still loved him.
____________ And then i suppose Regulus would name his child this way in memory of his brother. He clearly didn't want to make Walburga shutter in the afterlife. Not at all.
Tumblr media
So obviously the boy looks as a Black should but Regulus takes it upon himself to raise Leon not as a good pureblood but as a good person. Even though some manners and knowledge are still very important to learn for every little wizard. Playing musical instruments is one of them and this is the hill Reg chooses to die on. Leon fights for his right to live without music lessons viciously until he finds a guitar in uncle Sirius' old room and drags it down the stairs to his father proudly: "I wanna lear'n how to play this. Pwease? Pwetty pwease?"
Even though he had some experience of dealing with enchanting over energized trouble-is-my-second-name boys, Reg still has no idea how to say no to their kind. So Leon learns how to play guitar.
And then Hogwarts, right? He is a Black, his father is a Slytherin. But he is also Leon and loves bedtime stories about his Uncle's adventures, trying to live up to that already (poor Regulus, 'oh god i am turning grey because of this child!'). But he is also the most kind-hearted and hard-working boy you'll ever meet. And Teddy is like the BEST cousin ever so...
So he is sorted into Ravenclaw. Because despite all of this, he is very passionate about all the little things he learns. The boy can be found daydreaming about the impossible ways he could change the world for the better.
He does spend his first year trying to figure out how to create a stable time machine just as TARDIS
Tumblr media
The earrings are acquired in his third year in the dirty loo on the third floor because Teddy and he are going to be punk rock stars and they NEED piercings.
Regulus is not surprised and has no desire to upset his sweet boys. Not like a Lupin never corrupted a Black before.
"No, if you get tattoos, i'll be very angry, Teddy. It's just that i hope that there is something of your father in you, that would prevent you from doing it while you are fourteen. Then again at school he somehow fell for S..."
Tumblr media
... Nevermind. You are crazy enough from both of lines. Still, don't make my old heart break over you looking like prisoners if you get tattoos, boys".
"Understood, dad"
"Understood, uncle"

Always loved this character and thought her fate to be a tragic one. Though this pic was inspired not only by original book series but also by majestic @sweetestpopcorn and her huge work “The Blacks & the Greens”. This Rhaenyra is young and hopeful, still a child in many ways. Hope I’ve got the right impression of your character💕

I have a personal headcanon that the Black family have a long history of personality disorders that go unnoticed and untreated because the wizarding world is very backwards on that sort of thing. So whenever a member of the Black family have symptoms everyone just puts it down to the ‘Black family madness’ and pay it no mind. People like Walburga and Bellatrix suffer from it and even Sirius to some extent even before Azkaban.

House Vance is a riverlands house. They have a cadet branch at Atrantra, though it is not known which came first. The black dragon on their arms is a nod to them supporting the blacks in the Dance of the Dragons.

Every time I meet a student on tour, I think about how they'll turn out as an adult. Based on their interactions with strangers, how they follow directions, how they look at the world around them, I can guess what kind of adult they will be Every so often, I pray that I'm wrong.
