A theme I feel is never brought forward enough in the series is choices and the effect they have. Snape choose dark arts over his friendship with Lily, and eventually it cost him her as a friend and it killed her. Lily chose to die for her son, and it gave the wizard world the chosen one. Voldemort chose which wizard he thought best fit the prophecy, and destroyed himself in the process. Choices, and the consequences that follow, is a great theme in this series.
(I am sad and write of sad things. Everyone will be all right in the end, I’m sure, but, Harris, you can’t run from your past forever.)
“Let’s eat peanut butter cups for dinner.”
Harris shifted the bag of groceries in his arms. “Was that your plan all along?”
Darcy nodded. “Yes.”
“Then why did we go grocery shopping?”
“I was luring you into a false sense of security, nutritionally speaking.” She did a little spin, enjoying the way her skirt flared around her knees. The bags in her hands bumped against her legs as she stopped, facing him. “It was my devious plan.”
He grinned at her, his cheeks pink from the spring breeze. “With chicken breasts and frozen vegetables?”
“You didn’t suspect a thing,” Darcy pointed out. She threw her hands in the air. Harris ducked under her bags without missing a step. “My plan was a success!”
“We’re not eating peanut butter cups for dinner,” Harris said. But he was smiling when he said it.
“Maybe you’re not, but you’re not the boss of me, soooooooo…” She tipped her head in his direction. “Make me a better offer.”
“I don’t know,” he mused. “I mean, we could try eating real food and not spending the rest of the night curled up in the fetal position, praying for death as the sugar rush wears off.”
He had a pronounced cowlick right now. It was adorable. Darcy shifted both of her bags to one hand and reached out with the other. “You make it sound like a bad plan.”
It was crazy fun drawing all these characters for the “Young Animal Mixtape” cover. The sampler comic was included with Gerard Way’s Cave Carson record for Record Store Day last weekend. Super fun stuff. Tamra Bonvillain killed it on the colors.
For millennia, the Librarians have secretly protected the world by keeping watch over dangerous magical relics. Cataloging and safeguarding everything from Excalibur to Pandora’s Box, they stand between humanity and those who would use the relics for evil.
Stories have power.
In 1719, Elizabeth Goose published a collection of rhyming spells as a children’s book, creating a spellbook of terrifying power. The Librarian of that age managed to dispose of all copies of the book except one, which remained in the possession of Elizabeth Goose and her family, temporarily averting any potential disaster.
Now, strange things are happening around the world. A tree-trimmer in Florida is blown off his elevated perch by a freak gust of wind, a woman in rural Pennsylvania is attacked by mutant rodents without any eyes, and a college professor in England finds herself trapped inside a prize pumpkin at a local farmer’s market. Baird and her team of Librarians suspect that the magic of Mother Goose is again loose in the world, and with Flynn AWOL—again—it is up to Cassandra, Ezekiel, and Stone to track down the missing spellbook before the true power of the rhymes can be unleashed.
MY MUM’S VERY FIRST FANFIC IS POSTED PLEASE READ IT AND LEAVE NICE COMMENTS FOR HER, GUYS!
“Hello?” Bilbo answered cautiously. “Thorin?” “Hello, Bilbo,” came Thorin’s rich voice. The deep, rough tone never failed to send a chill down Bilbo’s spine. “Are you busy?” “I’m just having dinner …” Bilbo replied, hoping that he would not have to abandon his meal, as he had so many times previously. “Ah,” Thorin breathed. There was a long pause before he said, “I haven’t had dinner yet.” Puzzled by this non-sequitur, Bilbo prompted, “Are you in trouble?” “No.” “About to be in trouble?” “No.” “Done something for which you should be in trouble?” “No.”
I usually post a joke or a meme about a clip as soon as it comes up but….this clip just touched my heart. I lost my mom about a year and a half ago and I used to tell her all of my secrets too….it nearly brought me to tears. Thank you Skam and Julie for the sheer beauty of that clip.
Also anyone notice the amount of White and Sana being in white in this clip? Yousana’s love is full of innocence. I love this clip.
