Draco married the younger sister of a fellow Slytherin. Astoria Greengrass, who had gone through a similar (though less violent and frightening) conversion from pure-blood ideals to a more tolerant life view, was felt by Narcissa and Lucius to be something of a disappointment as a daughter-in-law. They had had high hopes of a girl whose family featured on the ‘Sacred Twenty-Eight’, but as Astoria refused to raise their grandson Scorpius in the belief that Muggles were scum, family gatherings were often fraught with tension.

Can I ask ‘8’ with ‘earphones’ for the color palette challenge? I’m curious what will you come up with ;)

That’s me trying to convey an idea in a fairly quick way (─‿‿─)

He was mad.” they say. “Through his death he was King again.”
“No.” you want to shout.
“He was an uncle, a brother, a son.
He never believed he was worthy; and yet he was more worthy than he ever knew.
He sang and laughed with his people, fought and bled by their side.
He sacrificed everything he had for them.
He gave us a new home and reclaimed the old.
Do not define him by a moment of weakness, but decades of strength.
Define him by his life, not his death.
Define him as warrior, as leader, as king.
And, as he was to me, a friend.

Trans Day of Visibility (Mar. 31) Masterpost

International Transgender Day of Visibility is an annual holiday occurring on March 31 dedicated to celebrating transgender people and raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide. The holiday was founded by Michigan-based transgender activist Rachel Crandall in 2009 as a reaction to the lack of LGBT holidays celebrating transgender people, citing the frustration that the only well-known transgender-centered holiday was the Transgender Day of Remembrance which mourned the loss of transgender people to hate crimes, but did not acknowledge and celebrate living members of the transgender community.

In 2014, the holiday was observed by activists across the world — including in Ireland and in Scotland.

This year, trans people all around the world will be showing their pride by posting selfies, videos and other media. 

#TDOV #TransSelfieDay and #TransDayofVisibility will be used and all of those who fall under the Trans umbrella including but not limited to trans women and men, genderqueer and non-binary folks, all those who are agender, bigender, two-spirit, neutrois, intersex, trans feminine, trans masculine, genderfluid and/or gender non-conforming.

Make sure to use other trans-specific hashtags too.


I see how you are when you’re with him - it’s like nobody else on earth exists.

And I wanna know why I feel so alone
