school is starting to pick up the pace, there’s so many tests coming and i’m quite worried, but here’s my biology notes for the first lecture topic!
hope everyone is having a productive day (◡‿◡✿)
what she really means:
basically all of the trainees who were eliminated held back their own tears and masked their own pain and instead clapped for and cheered for and smiled at their friends without a hint of bitterness and then they went home and holed themselves up for a WEEK and cut off all contact w/ the outside world so as to not spoil the show for the national producers and help MNET despite the fact that the most screentime they ever got was during their own eliminations and the fact that they were deprived of food and sleep and friends and family and the fact that they were treated as numbers and statistics on a ledger for ratings and not as real people and the fact that their dreams and hopes were toyed with and manipulated for the sake of views
I wanted to write this perfect thing here about my love for the wizard who stepped into my world 20 years ago, who so unashamedly stood out when he stepped into Privet Drive. The man who didn’t care that everything from his name to his high heeled buckled boots were unwelcome on the street he had just appeared on. The man who just wanted to teach kids magic, who would have loved to go to all his ex students weddings and hold their new babies, you know, the important stuff that never had a chance. But in the end, for me, no one summed up his character better than McGonnagall:
Dumbledore would have been happier than anyone to think that there was a little more love in the world. - Ch 29. HBP
so happy birthday HP, I honestly cannot remember when you were not an important part of my life.
