Seriously though. James Potter was a much better man than Severus Snape. Whereas James bullied Snape while they were kids and then grew out of it, Snape used his position of power at Hogwarts to bully children.
I feel like James and Ginny would have gotten along really well. Like Harry and Ginny would start dating and Ginny would become BFFs with James and they'd have inside jokes and team up against Harry during Quidditch.
James - Marauder Era <--- Why is this not a movie or a TV show or something? << An entire book series about the Marauders' and their time at Hogwarts, each book shown from a different marauder's perspective
This gif right here breaks my heart and makes me so happy at the same time. Sirius and the Potters. Notice that this is the exact scene as the one in the Order of the Phoenix where Molly gives Harry his wizard watch :)
