I have so many questions about platform 9 ¾. I mean I get it that it could be inside that pillar because of an extensible spell, but the train has to come out of SOMEWHERE. I mean at some point that train has to connect with the British railway system, right?
“i work at a little market/store and u came up to the register with a candy bar but didn’t have enough money to pay for the entire thing. but don’t worry, i got you, fam” au: I saw this and my mind screamed, "ANDREIL".
ok i combined both of these and neither is fully what you asked for but i hope you like it anyway!!!
It’s hot the way only New Jersey gets hot, America’s swampy asshole, thick damp air under an impermeable layer of smog, the sun mocking him from where it hangs between a few grey clouds that indicate but don’t promise an upcoming rain.
Neil’s jog is taking much, much longer than usual thanks to an unbearable amount of traffic. It doesn’t help that he’s had to reroute himself to get some British candy bar from the one Wawa that—without explanation—carries British candy bars.
He gets there eventually, eight miles away from his apartment and so fully dehydrated that he’s questioning how the fuck he’s going to make it back. Wawa is, as always, an oasis: refrigerators line the walls, and within them, blissfully, is cold water. He grabs a bottle and drinks half of it in the aisle before even going on the search for the Mars Bar.
The candy aisle has nothing, just mostly-depleted cardboard boxes of Snickers and Twix. The international section is mainly Latin American and Asian goods, and then, crammed between coconut water and Goya goods, a box of Mars Bars.
Now, first of all. A war with Spain will not happen. And I’m going to explore the reasons why.
1. Howard created a ridiculous hypothesis. He has somehow got it into his head that Spain would annex Gibraltar. This is not true and no one has suggested it. If Spain *was* to attempt to annex Gibraltar against the will of those living there, that would be another story. However, no such thing has even been said.
2. If Britain was to ‘pre-empt’ an attack by Spain on Gibraltar and attack Spain then Britain would be the aggressor and would very quickly find a mobilised EU quickly ending it. To stand any form of chance, the British would have to recall all of their military from around the world. The logistics just simply aren’t there.
It took Britain approximately four days. Four. Days. before someone of high status within the British establishment threatened war against an EU member. This automatically raises tensions in negotiations and will not be helping the nerves of any European currently living in the UK.
There has been no attempt by the British government to distance themselves from these comments and put right wing media have jumped on it and started running articles hypothesising a war with one of our closest allies.
I would like to think there will be a complete clampdown on this rhetoric tomorrow but I somewhat doubt it.
Scotland needs to leave the UK. The British government have completely lost the plot. We need to go and we need to do it soon.
