Celebrating 20 Years of Harry Potter with Illustrator @taryndraws

Like millions of others around the world, Taryn Knight (@taryndraws) first discovered the magical world of Harry Potter when she was a young girl, and hasn’t stopped loving it since. “I just kept reading them over and over,” she says of author J.K. Rowling’s book series. “Something just clicked. I was immediately obsessed.”
It wasn’t until Taryn, a Colorado-based freelance illustrator, was older that her love for all things witchcraft and wizardry began to manifest itself in her drawings. “I didn’t do a lot of art when I was first reading the books,” she says. “But once I started drawing regularly, my passion for Harry Potter began to creep in.”
Taryn, a self-proclaimed Hufflepuff, is excited about the celebration surrounding #HarryPotter20, the 20-year anniversary of the UK release of the first book in the series, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.” “It seems to be reigniting everyone’s love for the Potter world,” she says. “It feels a bit like that old familiar buzz of a new book release.”
Unpopular opinion time: A lot of the hate Ayn Rand gets is because she was a womyn. The shit she says about self interest actually is very similar to other theories men have put forward and it is very telling that that is the thing she is most hated for. The number of “Ayn Rand hates children” jokes I see is just gross because like, when does a man ever get that shit? She is called rude, unemotional, ugly, unloving and basically a failed womyn by leftist men. And this is obvious misogyny? A million men advocate for the free market and of course Ayn Rand is the one that is hated because she was a womyn who interrupts men in interviews and advocates self interest!
At the end of the day a womyn advocating self interest and relationships based not on self sacrifice but on what you want and get fulfillment from is terrifying to leftist men because…well, what would that actually mean for womyn?
Imagine Steve and Tony bonding when Tony learns about Bucky and Steve fixing up steves first bike way back when, and takes him to the shop to show him the cars he's revamped
“I don’t often admit to
being wrong, but I have to say Cap, I was wrong about you. I didn’t realize you knew so much about your
Steve looks up from his
place on the concrete next to his motorcycle, fingers grease-stained and a
myriad of tools on a cloth beside him.
“Turns out I’m more than a
showgirl. Who knew.”
“I should’ve known, it’s
not like you always had access to a mechanic in the war.”
“No. And we made a lot of…adjustments, with
“I’ve seen some of the
footage. Shot flames and everything.”
A wistful grin crossed
Steve’s face. “Yeah.”
Tony pondered Steve for
several long moments before nodding once decisively. “That settles it.”
“You know what you’re
doing and you just admitted how much you like explosions. Come on.
I need another pair of hands in my shop and I want to show off what I’ve
done to someone who’s going to appreciate it.”
Steve paused, gauging
Tony’s expression and when he found nothing facetious in it, he hurried to
clean up the space around his bike.
“That’d – that’d be real
nice, Tony. Thanks. I haven’t worked in a shop since-“
“Before. I couldn’t do much and when I couldn’t get a
job illustrating, there was a mechanic shop down the street that would give me
the small stuff to tinker with. I had
the smallest fingers and I could fix some of the more delicate stuff.”
Tony’s smile got
wider. “JARVIS. Give Cap access to the garage. He’s gonna need it.” Tony had a mischievous glint in his eye. “I have an antique that I could use your
hello, here’s a little sweet thought: it’s july and school is over and sana got her grades back and she did well, and so did isak, and even wants to take them out to the movies tonight, because he’s proud of these two geniuses he cares about. sana is supposed to meet them at their place before they all leave, she arrives and isak greets her with a smile, asks her how she’s doing and invites her to sit and tells her even is coming back from work in just a bit. she doesn’t have to say anything and he asks “tea?” and she says “yes, thank you”. and then isak asks “green tea?” because he remembers and sana smiles and nods. and isak goes to the kitchen and prepares a proper cup of tea for his friend, using the kettle he and even decided to buy, and he proudly comes back and hands it to sana, says “voilà!” and the movie is nice and they walk in the streets of oslo and it’s getting a little late but the sun isn’t fully down yet because it’s summer (sana loves summer nights, she truly does) and they talk and laugh and yes isak and even will sometimes share those little smiles and quick kisses, but she doesn’t feel like a third wheel around them, ever. sana comes home and her parents ask her about her day, when he looks at her face, her dad asks “it was a good day today, wasn’t it?” and she nods. because it was a good day indeed
I’ve rearranged the characters from tallest to smollest.
Jumin Han 184 cm Hyun Ryu 182 cm (ZEN) Yoosung Kim 180 cm (Valentine DLC) Jihyun Kim 179 cm Saeyoung Choi 175cm (707) Yoosung Kim 171 cm Jaehee Kang 165 cm Rika 159 cm
So people keep questioning whether it is possible for Yoosung to grow 9 cms after age 21. There’s several people who claim this isn’t possible at all.
First of all. Yoosung is not 21, he is 20 and just turned it a couple of months ago if you go by launch date (08/07/2016). Which I did for birth dates (see ages ), Babies born in Korea is regarded as 1 year old when they are born. Which means that all the characters are 1 year younger than what they claim in game.
Now to answer the next question. Can you grow after the age of 20? Yes, it is possible. However very unlikely. The closest I can get to a real life example confirmed (so far) is the case of Glee Star Chris Colfer. Chris Colfer grew a good 3-4 inches over the matter of 1 year in first season of Glee. Chris was 19 then. READ MORE >
So it is possible, however unlikely. However it is confirmed by both Jaehee and Yoosung that Yoosung ls still presumably growing. Yoosung says that he grew a bit more than an inch last year. And Jaehee says she thinks he’s still growing. Jaehee usually speaks the truth when she claims something. If you want to debate this, I’m more than willing.
