Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 → Deleted scenes
“Harry… I as good as killed them,” Sirius croaked. “I persuaded Lily and James to change to Peter at the last moment, persuaded them to use him as Secret-Keeper instead of me…. I’m to blame, I know it…. The night they died, I’d arranged to check on Peter, make sure he was still safe, but when I arrived at his hiding place, he’d gone. Yet there was no sign of a struggle. It didn’t feel right. I was scared. I set out for your parents’ house straight away. And when I saw their house, destroyed, and their bodies… I realized what Peter must’ve done… what I’d done…”
See this man, Neville? His name is Remus J Lupin. Listen to him, for he will teach you the secrets of being a cardigan-wearing badass.
*ahem* wearing cardigan right now. :)
I’ve decided that if Remus and Tonks had survived the war, Tonks would have returned to work as an Auror while Remus was the househusband who raised Teddy and baked scones and did laundry and had dinner on the table when Tonks got home.
I can just see him as enjoying that, you know? Something so simple and worthwhile, the one job no law can take away from him. I can also see him being a writer in his spare time and using a psuedonym and getting amused when bigots praise his books.
This is so adorable and wonderful and I usually don’t ship people in Harry Potter, but this is too lovely.
