if someone “fights like a girl” you should be absolutely terrified of them have ever seen a girl fight they’ll rip your fucking throat out with their hands while the guys are still doing that weird cobra posturing thing for five minutes
teachers are told to get in between boys when they’re fighting because once they lose eye contact they’ll calm down but teachers are told to stay out of the way of girls fighting because they will fuck your shit up
People being like “HOW DID THEY NOT REALIZE SIRIUS WAS INNOCENT”
Because there was nothing pointing towards his innocence.
Peter was gone, Remus was practically estranged from them and no one told Dumbledore that the Potters switched to Peter. What was Dumbledore supposed to do? Let a supposed convicted murderer go free?
If anything it’s the Ministry’s fault. Even if all evidence showed that Sirius had betrayed them they should have given him a trial. Everybody deserves a fair and just trial and the Ministry took that right away from him. If they had gone through with it, Sirius could have gotten off.
And the argument “Dumbledore should have given him a second chance” falls flat too in my opinion because at the time, Sirius wasn’t showing any remorse. He was laughing, and though he was laughing because he was hysterical, no one is going to stay to figure out the difference.
Perhaps Dumbledore always had an underlying wariness of Sirius, especially when he nearly sent Snape to his death in their school days. That must have raised alarm bells - this kid is remorseless when he wants to be.
McGonagall believed Sirius was guilty too, I don’t see anyone pointing fingers at her.
(and believe me I love McGonagall)
I completely agree, plus people blaming Dumbledore for Sirius’ death.
Sirius would have gone to Harry’s rescue whether he had been trapped inside Grimauld Place or not, he was one of his last links to James.
Sirius escaped from Azkaban for the prospect of getting revenge on Pettigrew and being with Harry again.
Dude wasn’t let anything going to stand in his way of him and his godson.
I love how the whole harry potter fandom just calls harry an idiot for naming his kid albus severus and says ginny should’ve named the kids so they would survive childhood
like you do realize this is the girl who named an owl pigwidgeon right
"Hedwig Pigwidgeon Potter, you are named after two owls."
