Sirius groaning about having Transfiguration next, and Lily asking him in surprise, “I thought you liked Transfiguration?!”, and Sirius saying, “Yes, but McGonagall has fastened all four legs of my chair to the ground so I can’t lean back anymore”.
literally EVERYBODY from Hagrid to Lord Voldemort thought James Potter was a good and brave man. Except Snape - who was in love with James’ soul mate.
Don’t people see his views therefore, are completely biased? And the only memories we see of James is from his enemy? Like, no shit there’s going to be messy fights. I mean, if you can say that Snape and his cronies never baited or attacked the Marauders without reason then that’s just proof you don’t even know Snape.
