Snape Appreciation Month Day 20: A scene you wanted to be in the films. (Occlumency + book quotes/select edits) I always hated how inaccurately portrayed the Occlumency lessons were in the films. “You managed to stop me eventually, though you wasted time and energy shouting. You must remain focused. Repel me with your brain and you will not need to resort to your wand.”
it was dark times, harry, dark times. voldemort started to gather some followers, brought them over to the dark side. anyone who stood up to him ended up dead. your parents fought against him, but nobody lived once he decided to kill them. nobody, not one, except you.
Who don’t write fan fiction
Who can’t make edits or fan art
Who can’t go to cons
Who can’t cosplay
Who can’t buy merch
Who think that because all they can do is support without having a “talent/skill” or the money to attend events or buy stuff that they don’t matter.
You matter, your support matters and we see you. You are enough.
SLYTHERIN: “Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.” -Fyodor Dostoevsky (The Brothers Karamazov)
Hey guys, remember that time I refused to shake Malfoy's hand?
Haha, yeah, good times!
What about the time I threw mud at him by the Shrieking Shack?
I still can't believe you didn't get in more trouble for that!
And remember how I used the map to follow him around sixth year?
Okay, well, remember that time I snuck into the Slytherin dorms under the cloak to watch him wank, and then I stole his pants but he noticed so he followed me back here and then I panicked and tied him to my bed? And then remember when I freaked out and left him bound and gagged upstairs LITERALLY STILL IN MY BED?
