“But I guess it makes sense. I mean, I have the same name as my late uncle, so clearly I have to act the same too. Just like how all depictions of my cousin Molly have her mothering a bunch of children, and every version of Albus makes him spout enigmatic nonsense while nursing a lemon drop addiction. OH WAIT.”My version of Fred Weasley II differs from most people’s. For example:1.) He goes by “Freddy.” This was actually George’s thing; the name “Fred” is just too tied up with his late twin. I mean, how the hell is he ever supposed to say “Fred, you’re grounded!” without feeling like a raging hypocrite? 2.) He’s about two years younger than Hugo and Lily, making him the youngest Weasley cousin aside from Roxanne. George and Angelina dated off-and-on for years before finally settling down.3.) He’s actually black. Okay, I get that Angelina was a minor character, so maybe some people missed her race, but sometimes I see fanart that makes Fred II a tiny bit darker than his cousins but has Roxanne looking like an actual black person. I know you’re sad that Fred I died, but Fred II is not his freakin’ clone.4.) My Fred II doesn’t act the same either. It’s too easy to just make him Weasley Twin #3. I decided to keep the humor aspect but twist it by making him a deadpan snarker—he’s calm and unemotional, and thus constantly annoyed by his relatives’ antics. He can cause trouble if motivated, but this is such a rare occurrence that it always takes people by surprise.5.) Related to such sneakiness, I think I’ve settled on him being a Slytherin (hence the green shirt). I may change my mind, but I feel like one of the kids should be a snake, so… Hope you enjoy, and see you the next time I feel the urge to share my headcanon.

Fred Arthur Weasley II  | Eighteen | Gryffindor | Seventh Year | F.C. Robert Sheehan | Open

"I will die in the knowledge that my courage did not desert me in the end" -Steven Moffat

Fred Weasley II is the pure blood son of George and Angelina. For those who know of his father’s legacy (if you can call it that) at Hogwarts, one would think Fred would be identical. After all he was named after his father’s twin and partner in arms. Funny, outgoing, goofy, and trouble. But the funny thing is, Fred Weasley II is all of those thing. He loves pranks and goofing off. Though sometimes he can let his jokes go too far, he plays around all in good fun.

Before going to Hogwarts, Fred had prayed and dreamed of getting into Gryffindor, much like the family before him. Both his parents, his aunt and uncles. He wanted desperately to continue the tradition. Though there may have been doubt in his mind, the Sorting Hat was more than sure of his placement. While Fred is a jokester and trouble maker, he is brave, noble, and ready to leap to action should someone call for his aid. He is a true Gryffindor, and proud of it.

Fred gets exceptionally good marks, which people find hard to believe, but he truly is quite brilliant. His best subjects include, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Astrology, and Muggle Studies.

Fred Weasley II is biracial. Robert isn’t. You should change the faceclaim to avoid whitewashing him!

manicpixiedreamboy: "As an Indian, i am just so annoyed and face palming at all the Padma/Parvati FCs. There are already actors for them! THAT ARE INDIAN."

I mean I can understand wanting to use different actresses because a lot of RPs use gifs and their may not be enough just using the canon actresses? But I totally agree about the faceclaims people use!

Looking for more admins 

Hello,

I am one of theadmins of this blog. Recently I have been coping with a lot of health issues and I am really unable to keep up with tumblr in general, let a lone sideblogs, such as this one that tend to get a lot of questions [a lot are answered privately]. I’ve put this off for a while because I’ve felt very guilty about choosing my own health over ~social justice~ but at the end of the day if I don’t help myself first I can;t help anyone else.

So I am looking for admins who will be able to answer questions on this blog, as well as the general tag-checking.

Thank you.

fridesianstar-deactivated201409: "Hey! Just found this blog! I follow other anti-whitewashing blogs, but haven't seen one about HP before, so this is awesome. I try my best to be a conscientious fan about problematic things in the source material and in the fandom, but I'm sorry for when I've screwed up in the past and any times in the future. If there were any things I'd like to discuss (like, "X character was listed as POC on your list, what race would you guess them to be?") would that be fine to ask you? Thanks!"

You could ask about that sort of stuff, but in the example you’ve given, if their race isn’t listed on the list then I probably don’t know anything more. Generally what’s listed is what I know.

faded-mind: "What you're doing is nice! i felt very annoyed when people 'cast' people with the wrong ethnicity for the half-black Weasley kids (or any other poc), as if indian, arab, italian, south american etc were all interchangeable as long as it's not white..."

Thank you! And I very much agree.

FRED WEASLEY II NEEDED FOR HARRY POTTER ROLEPLAY
Fred Weasley II is much like his late uncle, he’s a mischief maker and spends his free time in the Muggle world doing tricks and illusions for the muggles. He’s fun-loving and easy to get along with, but had a mean streak when he or his sister is crossed. He can just as easily make your life hell as he can fill it with laughter. Fred is definitely not the guy you want to piss off but is most certainly the guy you want rooting for you.

Fred II is half Black. Please don’t whitewash him.
