⋆ ⋆ Teddy had just turned thirteen when he realized that he has completely grown out of the nickname he was given many years ago. He felt that its softness made him look even meeker than he already was and so he began urging everyone to start calling him by either Edward or Ted – if they are so inclined on already shortening his name. And for a while, everyone did so. Well, everyone but pesky Victoire Weasley. Despite his insistence, she just wouldn’t stop calling him Teddy. Nowadays she does the complete opposite – calling him by either his full name or Ted. Just to annoy him.
⋆ ⋆ In the Hufflepuff common room, right next to the trophy case and artwork display is a large portrait of Nymphadora Tonks. Having her there watch over him as he made his way in and out made the whole Hogwarts experience a lot easier on Teddy. Her warm smile was one of the first things he got to see every morning and he would always greet her with either a softly spoken ❝𝐻𝒾 𝑀𝓊𝓂.❞ or an equally warm smile each time he’d pass by her.
⋆ ⋆ During the summer between his fourth and fifth year Teddy discovered the belongings of his father and his friends that were carefully stored in his Godfather’s attic. He quickly fell in love with Remus’ raggedy sweaters and Sirius’ worn out leather jacket as well the plethora of objects that muggles called cassette tapes. Even though he knew that Harry would never be against Teddy taking ownership over the things that once belonged to his late father, he still asked. Come fifth year, Teddy would stroll into Hogwarts with black hair, his uncle Sirius’ jacket under his robe and a Sex Pistols t-shirt under his uniform.
⋆ ⋆ Teddy’s fifth year in Hogwarts was also the year he decided to break out of his shell – even if it was just a little. This is when he decided to show off his abilities as a Metamorphmagus and we’re not talking about changing the color of his hair whenever he pleases. One of the most notable things Teddy did in the next two years was take the form of the professors who would be running late for class. He took most joy in pretending to be Professor Longbottom.
⋆ ⋆ Sometimes, in order to get a reaction out of her, Teddy would often call his grandmother Andromena by the accidental nickname he’d given her when he was three. 𝒢𝓇𝒶𝓃𝒹𝓇𝑜𝓂𝑒𝒹𝒶. The name always leaves a snarl on the woman’s face so ridiculous that has Teddy rolling on the floor laughing. The worst thing of all? The kids from the Potter/Weasley clan have caught up on it too.
⋆ ⋆ He became Head Boy in his last year of Hogwarts and although at time he found the position overwhelming at times, he enjoyed the part where students from all years would come to him whenever they needed advice or help of some sorts. Teddy always managed to give the best advice out of all his peers (not that anyone was surprised, he’d always been an impeccably good listener) to the point where when someone would come to him for advice he would reply with a cheeky, ❝𝒲𝑒𝓁𝒸𝑜𝓂𝑒 𝓉𝑜 𝓂𝓎 𝒯𝑒𝒹𝒯𝒶𝓁𝓀. 𝒫𝓁𝑒𝒶𝓈𝑒, 𝓉𝒶𝓀𝑒 𝒶 𝓈𝑒𝒶𝓉.❞
⋆ ⋆ Each year on her birthday, in order to honor her memory, Teddy would change his hair into a shade of bubblegum pink – the same color his mom was mostly known for.
⋆ ⋆ By the time he turned sixteen Teddy had already grown taller than his father ever was. This resulted in him finally being able to fit into his uncle Sirius’ leather jacket.
⋆ ⋆ Even though his Godmother played it professionally and most of the Potter/Weasley clan's obsessed with it, Teddy has never shown any particular interest in Quidditch. This might be due to his clumsiness and crippling fear of heights. Harry always says that if Teddy put his mind to it, he would be a champion at the sport thus the reason why he bought him a Nimbus 2009 when he started his first year at Hogwarts.
⋆ ⋆ The kid that excelled in every single of their classes. And although it made studying a lot easier, it also left Teddy standing at a crossroad the second he graduated from Hogwarts. He never paid much attention to what he wanted to be when he grows up aside from his interest in muggle music, werewolves and travelling.
⋆ ⋆ His father’s lycanthropy is the biggest reason why he showed interest in werewolves in the first place. The other reason is his fear of becoming one. (and killing everyone he loves in the process).
⋆ ⋆ Developed a strong interest in Defense Against the Dark Arts during his final year in Hogwarts and for a while he wanted to become an Auror, just like his Mum. That was until he moved to Ilvermorny and got into Potion making instead.
⋆ ⋆ Pretty much has the worst eyesight known to man. Was prescribed glasses around the time he was sixteen, but refused to wear them because it would've made him look uncool. Harry was personally attacked by that statement.... Read more
