Huh, really? I could’ve sworn I remembered the opposite from somewhere in canon. Then again, you guys know how forgetful I can be sometimes, so maybe I was misremembering.
Are you sure it wasn’t about patronuses, though? Those definitely aren’t a personal choice.
they’re probably thinking of patronuses, because i distinctly remember that wormtail became a rat specifically so he’d be able to deactivate the whomping willow. and sirius became a big dog to help wrangle lupin when he was all wolfy.
Ah, yeah, sounds about right.
That last bit about Sirius kinda goes against the suggestion the ask was in response to – that Dog Black becoming a Black Dog might’ve been on purpose on Sirius’s part – but… I suppose it might be both things. :Åb
