harry potter named his child after severus snape, a character who mercilessly abused his students for years, and not remus lupin, a character who watched his best friend die but forced himself to hold harry back so he wouldn’t hurt himself
but snape is “the bravest man he’s ever known” instead of lupin
friendly reminder that lupin actually tried to abandon his pregnant wife during the middle of a war so he wouldn’t have to deal with the consequences of raising a possible werewolf child and also treated tonks pretty horribly for most of their relationship and didn’t show any happiness towards her until after the child was born
i’m not trying to defend snape, he’s actually one of my least favorite characters and i know he’s a huge bag of dicks, but you can’t put lupin on some type of pedestal like he’s never done anything wrong.
both characters had their hero moments and their dick moments, and both played a part in harry’s life
also teddy’s name was already named ted remus lupin and we’re led to believe that harry had a part in raising him so there would’ve been no reason for harry to name another son after lupin
IF ANYONE DESERVED TO HAVE A CHILD NAMED AFTER THEM, IT WAS RUBEUS HAGRID OKAY BYE.
i have a lot of secret hermione headcanons like. she was insufferable at muggle school as well and generally not well liked. she was the girl whose parents were both dentists and she read too many books and tried to talk to people in her class about them but they generally thought she was trying to show off. so when she gets into hogwarts she throws herself into the new culture and reads as many books as her parents will pay for, including her text books and several history books and when her parents refuse to buy the unabridged history of magic and also some legends, she seriously considers hiding out in flourish and blotts so she can just read it in the bookstore. but she wears her robes around the house and sends about forty letters to hogwarts asking questions about the school year and the course load and how the grading scale works and if they’re very sure they’ve told her everything she’s going to need. and her parents are worried about her but they had been already? because she has such a hard time making friends. and they hope she’ll be able to make friends at hogwarts.
the first letter she sends them is full of descriptions of the castle and the sorting and background information on gryffindor and she mentions that she met neville and he’s very sweet, and the classes are so interesting, and she loves them very much! and the next few are also like that and kind of strained. and they suspect (correctly) that she again does not have friends.
a couple weeks into november, she sends them a letter full of complaints about ron’s study habits and how he’s teaching her wizard chess and how both he and harry are very brave but also not very good students. and she tells them about hagrid, who is eight and a half feet tall and the nicest person she has ever met.
they stop worrying as much until they get a letter at the end of term saying that hermione has broken about 20 school rules and also congratulations your daughter scored over 100% on almost every exam.
