Book Quotes: - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
"Oh I can’t wait to see McGonagall inspected,” said Ron happily. “Umbridge won’t know what’s hit her.” 

McGonagall is the Queen of Sass. All Hail McGonagall.

Also don't forget how in GoF, when Sirius was talking to Harry in the fire, he was demonstrating SUPERB listening skills. Like the dude broke into a house and the owners could be back at any time and he needed to tell Harry lots of important stuff about Karkaroff and Moody BUT HE JUST LET HARRY TALK ABOUT RON AND HOW AWFUL IT WAS BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT HIS GODSON NEEDED HIM. I HAVE SOME ISSUES WITH YOU SIRIUS BUT YOU WERE A GREAT GODFATHER. ILY PADFOOT.

JK wrote all of her characters to be flawed. Characterization, I would argue, is one of her greatest strengths as a writer. So yes, Sirius was flawed, but I’m not sure why people equate that to him being a terrible godfather.

Was he a damaged person? Yes. Was his volatility made worse by being in his childhood home? Yes. Was he more reckless than he ought to have been? Yes. But don’t you dare say he was a terrible godfather. He did the best he could, and he loved Harry, and that’s what Harry remembered.

Maybe Harry did crave more of a father than maybe what Sirius could have been, and maybe the lines were sometimes blurred between son and brother from Sirius’s point of view, but they were blurred for Harry, too. Just, urgh, the care and concern with which he looks after Harry is insane:

“My scar hurt.”

“I’M COMING”

“You don’t have to—“

“I’M COMING”

“But really—“

“I’M HERE”

And that’s how Harry knew he was gone, because Sirius would never keep Harry waiting, he would always do whatever he could to get to him, to help him, to protect him. He would break into a stranger’s house or drop to a knee in front of a sooty fireplace or hide in a cave for a year. Hell, he would say in the tortured home of his childhood if it meant being in a position to help and protect Harry.

HARRY JAMES POTTER was SIRIUS BLACK’S LIFE.

In the end it doesn’t matter whether Sirius was a more a brother than a father to harry: his loss left a great gulf of sadness in Harry. It was completely devastating, no matter the label.

 Sirius Black is/was a Great Godfather part 2. 

more like part 50 b/c sirius being an awesome godfather is like 15% of my blog :)

Plague doctors were individuals in the Middle Ages who were given the task of tending to people infected with the plague. In most cases, they were either second rate or under-trained physicians, incapable of maintaining their own practice. Many were not doctors at all, but people of various other employments paid by towns to cater to the sick. 

Plague doctors were employed in various methods whenever plague set in. The earliest documentation of these individuals being hired go as far back as the mid 500s AD. The plague doctor image that we as a general public are familiar with was not seen until the 1600s. It was then that the “traditional” plague doctor costume was created. The costume consisted of a cloak made of heavy fabric covered in wax to protect the doctor’s body, and a mask to keep out the sick air. The masks had a long cone shaped structure at the nose, to be filled with scents that would protect the doctor from the bad air.

Because of the nature of their work, plague doctors often became victims of the plague themselves, or were quarantined for the protection of the public.
