John was kind enough to sign my painting at Leakycon- thanks John! It’s so awesome to share my art with you in real life. Anyway I hope you’re feeling better soon and that your extreme case of tiny chicken disease isn’t getting you too down

Note: I put another version of this on tumblr ages ago but in case you didn’t see that, this is a nerdfighter/harry potter fanart based on the UK book cover of harry potter and the philosopher’s stone

Snape: Not The Hero We Deserve

Snape has largely been considered a heroic character within the Potter fandom, with apologists going so far as to suggest that he did nothing wrong. However, anyone who reads the books with a critical eye knows that Severus Snape, one of the most well-written and interesting characters of the series, was a complete toolshed. This panel, which will be open to screaming and boos from the audience, is designed to separate impressions of Snape’s value as a literary character from his values as a person within the books.

To my starfish-

Sooooo I’m going to open up a little here. These past couple of months have been kind of rough for me. It was weird. A lot of times I just wasn’t ME. I was worrying about what other people were thinking of me and comparing myself to anyone and everyone. I was in a funk. Especially with my YouTube videos. Sometimes I got so frustrated that I just wanted to give up and delete it all. Why am I telling you this? Because every time I started to feel this way I would go into my Starfish Box where I keep all of the mail that you guys send me. When I read your letters and look through your gifts, not only do I feel loved and supported by you, but I see ME. My spirit, my passion, my love for life both real and fictional. You are all so beautiful, so unique, so caring. You aren’t afraid to celebrate the things you love. When I feel lost, when I need to find myself, I just need to look at you. You aren’t my fans, you are ME. You are my best friends and my inspiration. Thank you for reminding me who I am and what I stand for. I will always be here for you too. I love you all so much. We are ALL fangirls dammit and together we are unstoppable. 

So i got this Tattoo on Esther Day with my friend Jill. We had just been at LeakyCon for 5 days which was amazing. We had cried together at midnight at Esther’s ball (which was an awesome experience, even if many tears were involved. many hugs were involved too. and so. much. love.)

I wanted something to honor both Esther and the amazing community that we both love. I admire the person Esther was so much and it’s not fair that she only got 16 years but damn, she made the best out of the 16 years didn’t she? <3
