Groot and Rocket (Professors of Herbology, Hufflepuff) caused quite a controversy when they were hired, as non-humans are prone to do. Neither had attended Hogwarts or any other Magical school (and were honorarily Sorted into Hufflepuff upon their arrival), but they were clearly magical. Despite (or rather because of) their oddness though, the pair are rather popular amongst the student body.
“So this is why you didn’t want to tell me what your Patronus was.”
“Don’t even start, Steve.”
“I should have guessed!”
“How about we just hurry up and figure out what your Patronus is?”
“Have you named it? Because it could get confusing–”
“We can’t name it Steve; that would be even more confusing.”
“I hate you.”
The Winter Soldier is a dark wizard assassin that has haunted European nations for half a century. Though he has given no personal affiliations, his targets potentially link him to a number of magical secret societies.
James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes (Gryffindor, 6th Year, Quidditch captain & Chaser, prefect; halfblood – MIA) was Steve Rogers’ best friend. Always the more talented wizard, Bucky was recruited to contribute to war efforts ahead of his friend, but was captured by enemy forces.
As a prisoner, he was subject to similar but different experiments involving superhuman strength and magical amplification. Unfortunately, the full extent of his capabilities were never fully realized by either himself or others. Bucky lost his wand in an ensuing battle, was stunned, and fell to his presumed death in the mountains in 1945.
Samuel Wilson (Hufflepuff, 5th Year, Chaser; halfblood) is loyal to a fault, but he’ll do what’s right.
“I asked you to help me with Potions, not to sit on my back and play Pokemon,” Bruce said.
Tony might have noticed that he sounded more irritated than usual, but his Flaafy was so close to evolving.
No pressure, Bruce!
This was funnier in my head; now it just feels shippy. ヽ( ´¬`)ノ TRALALA~ しかたないよ~. I also spent way too much time on this, dang.
Tony Stark had a lot of owls.
“You’re not seriously upset about what the little Odinson brat said, are you?”
Bruce shrugged noncommittally.
Clint Barton was grinning from ear to ear when he left his Defense Against the Dark Arts class. After several long and frustrating weeks, he had finally produced a corporeal Patronus. Natasha wouldn’t be able to tease him about it anymore, especially since the form his Patronus took was so much more impressive than her measly spider.
At the last table at the end of the last row of bookshelves, he’d finally found his brother contentedly sitting amidst a messy collection of books, parchment, and quills.
“Brother, you’ve betrayed me,” Thor said, unraveling his Transfiguration homework across the table. “All the answers you gave me were incorrect!”
In his third year, Clint got into the habit of watching each of the other teams practice. Just watching was fine, but it frustrated him when he saw the Snitch and the practicing Seeker did not.
Eventually, it accumulated in his leaping from his perch in the announcer’s tower, kicking off on his broom, and grabbing the Snitch himself, nevermind that Slytherin had the pitch for practice.
Ron had always thought that Natasha was okay for a Slytherin, and especially for a Slytherin prefect. She seemed nice enough and didn’t go out of her way to give him a hard time. He had even thought she was kind of cute. But then he found out what her Patronus was, and that was the end of that. Slytherins. If it isn’t snakes, then it’s spiders. Ew.
Odin Allfather (Minister of Magic, Gryffindor; pureblood) has been Minister of Magic for over a hundred years, and it’s difficult for many wizards to imagine anyone else leading their careful society. It had been a sure thing, winning the seat after stopping the years-long Giant Invasion, and there simply hasn’t been anyone impressive enough to challenge the incumbent in a century. As Odin has aged, his strange coma-like restorative sleeps have become more frequent, and some have speculated that he’s grooming his elder son for his position. This is met with mixed opinions though. They’re not a monarchy, after all, and Thor is just a little too bullheaded to be a suitable minister, isn’t he?
Nick Fury (Head of the Auror Office, Slytherin, former Quidditch captain & Beater; halfblood) gets things done, but he will get things done his own way. If your rules and guidelines hold him back, slow him down, or are otherwise just stupid, then he will elect to ignore them. In the end though, things get done. Just don’t ask why he doesn’t get a magical eye put in that empty socket of his; in that case, you’ll get a string of colorful profanities and something about how Mad-Eye was an idiot anyway.
Margaret “Peggy” Atwell nee Carter (Head of Gryffindor, Professor of Charms, former Chaser; halfblood) accepted a long time ago that Steve Rogers would probably never wake again, so when it actually happened, she had a hard time believing it. He does not recognize her though: her name is different than what he remembers, and she has grown so very, very old. Probably it’s for the best though, so she makes no effort to reveal herself. He is a student again, and she is his teacher. Again. It is all very nostalgic, but she’ll just keep the memories to herself.
This is my first major divergence from canon, MCU or otherwise, where Peggy remains unmarried. But I really needed a Gryffindor Head of House and this was a good way to do that while still postponing awkwardness with Steve until I have a better idea of what they’re doing in Captain America 2. Now, I just need a Hufflepuff Head of House. D;
Erik Lehnsherr (Head of Slytherin, Professor of Ancient Runes; pureblood) hates teaching. But he recognizes the importance of educating young wizards, and as he does not particularly trust others to do this properly, he fills the role of ‘professor’ without complaint. When he is able to extract himself from the drama of student affairs, Professor Lehnsherr can most commonly be found in his office authoring new spells and scoffing at Muggle literature.
Eric Selvig (Head of Ravenclaw, Professor of Astronomy; halfblood) is unabashedly enthusiastic about the things that interest him. He has no problem burying himself in studies and research for days and days without break, but teaching is a much more exhausting affair, especially when it comes to his own house. Of course Ravenclaw is filled with those who like to learn, but because they are such a learned lot, egos clash frequently and sometimes violently. Still, he likes to think the days his students find themselves awed by his teachings are worth the days Tony Stark somehow sets fire to Ravenclaw tower, the astronomy tower, or both.
Tony landed a bit harder than he intended and threw his broom roughly aside before turning to face the referee, who began shouting at him as soon as he was within earshot.
“Mr. Stark, you cannot just–”
Left is a scraped science bros comic I may rework later. Right is Clint/Nat Seeker shenanigans.
HELLO, all you new people that probably started following me because of HPvengers. :O I’m glad you’re enjoying my silly headcanons. I have a lot of ideas I want to and will doodle and share, but I’ll probably…make a point to spread them out a bit because I have a really bad habit of turning dumb for-fun things into overblown side projects, stressing myself out, and then hating it. :D
So in between subsequent HPvengers-related doodles, please be prepared for daily sketches that frequently contain OCs, various studies, speedpaints, and other such things. You can browse the archive for an idea of variety.
Betty Ross (Gryffindor, 5th Year; pureblood) is the quiet daughter of Thaddeus Ross, head of the Magical Law Enforcement Squad at the Ministry of Magic.
Darcy Lewis (Hufflepuff, 5th Year; halfblood), a prolific gossip, is the lead reporter of the Hogwarts student newspaper, The Golden Snitch.
“I just hope the Captain knows what he’s doing picking Murdock as the new Seeker. If we lose to Ravenclaw on Saturday, Tony will never shut up again.”
James Rhodes (Gryffindor, 5th Year, Keeper, prefect; halfblood) is a versatile fellow. He can be easygoing and he can be serious. Unfortunately, he is not especially persuasive, and all of his friends are idiots.
Sif (Gryffindor, 6th Year, Chaser, prefect; pureblood) seems to spend a lot of time trying to convince Thor that his brother is a little shit.
I’M NOT SORRY.
Maria Hill (Hufflepuff, 7th Year, Quidditch captain & Beater, head girl; halfblood) is so ready to graduate. She knows there’s a Hit Wizard position in the Magical Law Enforcement Squad just waiting for her, and as much as she loves Quidditch, she is pretty tired of dealing with the other players. (And who wouldn’t, with the Stark and Rogers butting heads every other game? Thank Merlin they aren’t in her house.)
Jasper Sitwell (Hufflepuff, 5th Year, Keeper, prefect; halfblood)
just wants senpai to notice him really wants to figure out where he belongs. He is pretty good at everything he does, but still no one seems to take him seriously.
Virginia “Pepper” Potts (Ravenclaw, 5th Year, prefect; halfblood) is frequently frustrated with her housemates. She’s glad Bruce has at least one friend, but wishes it didn’t have to be Tony, who is obviously a terrible influence for anyone, least of all someone as troubled as Bruce. She wishes Tony would act as smart as she knows he is. But mostly she just wishes people would stop expecting her to make up the house points that Tony ends up getting deducted from Ravenclaw every single day. She’s a prefect, sure, but she isn’t Tony’s keeper. Besides, Bruce is a prefect too!
Jane Foster (Ravenclaw, 5th Year; Muggle-born) is a classic sort of Ravenclaw, content behind her books and research and studies. She likes Astronomy the best, but is also fascinated by Ancient Runes and History of Magic. As one of her roommates, Jane often listens to Pepper’s problems and seeks casual advice from Darcy in Hufflepuff, and that’s usually how word of Stark’s exploits starts around the castle.
“Loki, our parents aren’t–”
“Your parents,” Loki snarled. “Face it, Odinson, you’re the only one here with a family.”
“No,” Clint said, looking at him, surprised. “I said we don’t have parents.”
“No one ever said anything about family,” Natasha agreed, also turning.
“We’re not staying here over Christmas because we don’t have families,” Steve said.
“We’re staying here because our families are here,” Bruce confirmed quietly.
“What these saps said,” Tony said with a shrug and another sip of wine.
“Come home for Christmas, brother,” Thor said. “Or don’t. But you have a family either way.”
Thor Odinson (Gryffindor, 6th Year, Beater; pureblood) is the son of long-time Minister of Magic and comes from a very old line of powerful, influential European wizards. He takes great pride in his heritage and traditional upbringing, but remains relatively humble and down-to-earth, if very out-of-touch with the Muggle culture well-known amongst his halfblood and Muggle-born peers. In addition to being physically intimidating, Thor’s raw magic is very powerful. Demonstrations of brute force come easily to him, but spells requiring finesse are more difficult. He is protective of his brother in regards to ostracization and mockery, but will not defend poor behaviour and instead, will feel it necessary to right Loki’s wrongs and apologize on his behalf.
Loki Odinson (Slytherin, 5th Year; Muggle-born) is the adopted son of the Minister. He is particularly talented at Charms, Potions, and DADA, looks down on basically everyone, and revels in positive attention, though he will never admit this. His raw magic is probably equal in strength to Thor’s, but he prefers to wield it more subtly, and the brute strength of his magic has never been tested.
In the summer before his fifth year, he overhears a conversation that leads him to guess at his true parentage. He confronts Odin about it, then essentially disowns himself from his family. Though Thor sometimes disproved of his pranks and though Loki hated all of Thor’s other friends, the brothers got along well until this discovery; after this, they have a falling out, and Loki prefers to ignore Thor and will deny that they are related, though he will not elaborate as to why.
Loki’s birth parents were notoriously violent, anti-Magic Muggles who worked vigilantly to expose and threaten the wizarding world. They led a huge fight against wizards with Muggle weapons which resulted in the deaths of dozens of innocents, wizard and Muggle alike. His birth mother was killed in the battle, but his father remains imprisoned at Azkaban. They have never met. Most teachers already know, but Thor is the only student who does (and has known all his life).
Steve Rogers (Gryffindor, 6th Year, Quidditch captain & Chaser, prefect; halfblood), as a sixth year student in the 1940’s, enlisted to fight in a wizarding war and gained superhuman strength and enhanced magic through a variety of experimental potions. These potions allowed him to help turn the tide on the war, but various side effects accumulated in Steve becoming comatose and physically frozen. He was stored at Hogwarts until a cure was concocted seventy years later.
He continues his studies now, but is confused and isolated in a world where just about everyone he’s ever known is dead. At least the portraits in the castle are familiar, even if the habits of the stairways seem to have changed.
Phil Coulson (Hufflepuff, 6th Year, prefect; Muggle-born) is unassuming and mild-mannered. He has average skills in most magical subjects, but learns quickly and remembers well. His favorite classes are DADA and History of Magic, and as an avid fan of Steve Rogers’ exploits and achievements in the war, Phil is somewhat awkward around the recently revived historical figure.
Natasha Romanoff (Slytherin, 5th Year, prefect, Seeker; pureblood) was raised in a Muggle orphanage after her parents are killed. Relatively adept at controlling her small bursts of magic at an early age, she was able to channel and magnify her abilities through simple sticks and ordinary objects like spoons and forks well before receiving her first wand. She wanted to keep the magic to herself and became skilled at lying to her caretakers. The other children caught on though and came to fear and hate her, frequently attacking her before she had a chance to concentrate on magic. As such, Natasha learned to fight back physically as well. At Hogwarts, Charms and DADA become her best subjects.
Clint Barton (Hufflepuff, 5th Year, Seeker; halfblood), along with his older brother, grew up in the same orphanage as Natasha after his parents are killed. His magic was unpredictable and mild as a child, but his heritage was never a mystery to him. Fascinated by Natasha’s ability, he made a point to protect her from the other kids when she became overwhelmed and got really good at hitting people in the head with rocks. At Hogwarts, in addition to being the best Hufflepuff Seeker in many, many years, Trasfiguration and Care of Magical Creatures are his best subjects.
