I was 9 when I read the first four books and didn’t understand the word ‘Marauder’. Even though the 'ma’ part is the only thing similar, I quickly started telling my family about Harry’s dad’s group of friends, the Mandarins. After that, even though I READ it, I never noticed the actual word. It was just one of those things that I just kind of accepted. It wasn’t till I mentioned to my friend when I was 16-17 how much I liked The Mandarins that I realised my mistake.

the more i think about it, the less i see the yuri-yuko-nishigori ‘love triangle’ from their childhood as being two guys crushing on the same girl, and much more

  • one guy myopically obsessed with a celebrity and figure skating
  • one girl also obsessed with the same celebrity but also kinda crushing on her two friends and also crushing on everyone who could skate well
  • one guy who was SUPER PISSED about the celebrity crushing like ‘OK he can skate and all but that russian dude’s not so hot i could probably beat his ass!!!’ and who was also HARDCORE desperate to get with either or preferably both of his cute friends

nishigori sure has found a lot of ways to get his hands on yuri, hasn’t he? *coughs*

“I grew up with an extremely normal childhood. I was my parents’ first born and – I mean, when you’re first-time parents and told your daughter is 2 lbs, 10 oz and the doctors show you a polaroid of me, because they think that you’re going to be scared of your own child? The first thing my parents said is, ‘Bring her to us right now. She’s our daughter no matter what size she is.’ To have that foundation from day one has shaped a lot of who I am now. When I was younger, I saw what everyone else saw. The supermodels on magazine covers. The gorgeous actresses in movies and on TV. I was 17 when I found the video on YouTube calling me the world’s ugliest woman, with my photo, and knew that over 4 million people had seen it. There were thousands of comments on this video, and I sat there and read every single one, because I was so desperate to find one person that was standing up for me, and I never found it. I was living with my parents at the time and had my door slightly opened, and when I looked out, I saw my mom. She was just sitting there watching TV, and I knew if that video crushed me as much as it did, I couldn’t imagine what it would do to her. My idea of what beauty was sort of just diminished. If I’m the ugliest person in the world, where does that standard of beauty even begin? And I think that’s where the light was turned on for me, that I’m not going to let their words become the definition for who I am. You can put makeup on and you can do your hair, you can do all of these things. But when you take that makeup off and go to bed at night, and you’re stripped down to just you… What do you have? You have your personality, you have your values, you have the things that mean the most to you, you have your dreams. That’s what the standard of beauty to me is, the person that you are and not the person that you look like.” –@littlelizziev in our newest video of Dispelling Beauty Myths with @Allure Watch the full video at allure.com/disabilities

makeup is so damn nice but there is so much responsibility that comes w/ it n i don’t even mean the buying and applying part i mean the always having to tell ppl u don’t hate urself and getting the hints/vibes that ppl secretly suspect ur ugly w/o makeup or ppl assuming ur doing ur makeup for boys or hearing ppl say some shit like ‘u look beautiful w/ OR w/o makeup!!’ like…. I just wanna look cute… I didn’t sign up for all this extra stuff
