Rereading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: Chapter Nineteen - Elf Tails
when we left off, ron was poisoned and almost died. lol happy birthday bro!!!!!!!!!
Hermione gave an almost inaudible sniff. She had been exceptionally quiet all day. Having hurtled, white-faced, up to Harry outside the hospital wing and demanded to know what had happened, she had taken almost no part in Harry and Ginny’s obsessive discussion about how Ron had been poisoned, but merely stood beside them, clench-jawed and frightened-looking, until at last they had been allowed in to see him.
if that aint love yall. seriously tho any romione haters can FIGHT ME
“Er-my-nee,” croaked Ron unexpectedly from between them.
i vividly remember reading this for the first time and SCREAMING FOR JOY. still kinda of squealing now tbh
- omg HAGRID feels like i havent seen you in ages bb :’( missed u
“Half our family does seem to owe you their lives, now I stop and think about it,” Mr. Weasley said in a constricted voice.
OMG STAHP im feeling way too many emotions im literally like 2 pages into the chapter jfc
“’S’no wonder Dumbledore’s angry with Sn-” Hagrid stopped in his tracks, a familiar, guilty expression was visible of his face above his tangled black beard.
familiar. GOD I LOVE HAGRID
- FUCKING MCLAGGEN hes like ‘since ron almost DIED let me play in the next quidditch game’ and its like BRO HE ALMOST DIED can you at least wait until, idk THE NEXT DAY to ask??????? smh disrespectful
Harry, however, had never been less interested in Quidditch; he was rapidly becoming obsessed with Draco Malfoy.
is this gay or what
“Is Hermione Granger still visiting him?” Lavender demanded suddenly. “Yeah, i think so. Well, they’re friends, aren’t they?” said Harry uncomfortably. “Friends, don’t make me laugh,” said Lavender scornfully. “She didn’t talk to him for weeks after he started going out with me! But I suppose she wants to make up with him now that he’s all interesting…”
BITCH BETTER STEP AWF dont be hating on romione, i said IM READY TO FIGHT
“Where’re you going?” Harry demanded. “Yeah, I’m really going to tell you, because it’s your business, Potter,” sneered Malfoy. “You’d better hurry up, they’ll be waiting for ‘the Chosen Captain’ - ‘the Boy Who Scored’ - whatever they call you these days.”
1. lol did harry seriously think asking malfoy would work 2. dracos actually getting pretty good at insulting people like these were legit funny i lol’d
- also the blushing, sulky girls draco is with rn are actually crabbe and goyle right? if so that shits hilarious
- FUCK YES to luna commentating the game
- no big deal harry just CRACKED HIS SKULL and is in the hospital wing now. fucking wizard world is wild yall
- KREACHER AND DOBBY AND PEEVES ARE HERE am i in heaven?
Dobby sank his knobbly little fist into Kreacher’s mouth and knocked out half of his teeth.
holy fuck. who knew dobby was such a savage?
“Just stick to Malfoy like a couple of wart plasters.”
was this analogy really necessary harry? you couldnt think of ANYTHING else? nasty boi.
WELP if you liked this, follow me for more chapters!
I’m not Moash’s biggest fan after WoR but I did feel for him in OB? He’s very lost, and I liked the way he related to the former parshmen; I love Kal adopting that group, don’t get me wrong, but Moash is….there are not a lot of instances of humans seeing parshmen–or Parshendi– as people. As people who are beside them. And Moash did, which was important.
I still didn’t…LIKE him, but I…felt like I could kinda see his side? And mostly he was very, like I said, lost and definitely in shock/keeping himself dull which I hadn’t expected, and I liked? As a narrative and character thing? It was a very real reaction
The Big Thing that he did was uh. Weird for me bc on the one hand NO NO NO NO NO but on the other hand I’ve always…there’s huge inequality issues in Roshar, and Alethkar especially, and I….mmmmmmmmmm it’s not so black-and-white. Honestly I felt more disappointed in Moash than I felt angry at him, if that makes sense? If I can separate my feelings on Moash from my feelings on The Event In Question which OW
I was actually really interested in where his story was going to go because of the way morality and choice are such big and complex parts of this story? But tHEN
do you like alt j? they are a pretty beautiful band, and they kinda match with your stuff. if you want to check them out later, maybe listen to adeline, nara and bloodflood? xx
yeah I love them!!! have done since I heard Mathilda when I was 15 and walking down to a very nostalgic restaurant to celebrate the summer and I still listening to it in my headphones when we ate dinner haha xxx
I think he kind of identifies with them a lil bit. Cowboys and the Old West in general. I think he honestly thinks of himself as some sort of equivalent to an old time frontier lawman, where he’s essentially judge, jury, and executioner. He’s fascinated with the outlaws and gunslingers of the time, because I think if he’d been born 150 years earlier, he would’ve been one of them. They were the live fast, die young vigilante law of the old west.
And that’s kinda his view of hunting.
(though I think he much prefers living in the modern world since he got a taste of just how germy the old was really was)
Plus he loves the clothes, loves the boots and hats (and honestly he looks really good in the hat). I think he probably grew up watching westerns, fascinated by the similarities between life on the range and his transitory life hunting, and he still sorta thinks of himself that way. But unlike him, these guys get written up in history books.
You know what I used to do all the time, in the pre-digital world? Make mix tapes and give them to my friends. Yes, my friends. And they would often make me mix tapes. Because we had a mutual interest in each other’s interests. I don’t do it anymore because digital music kinda confuses me but I still force my friends to watch tv shows and movies that are important to me, so they will better understand me and get my references. I share books that I love with anyone and everyone who will listen and accept a recommendation. I text my friends and call them and sit close to them and make eye contact and smile like a doofus when I see them because I love them. I hug my friends and make inappropriate jokes with them. What I don’t do? I don’t want to have sex with them or be in a romantic relationship with them, because I just love them as friends. Platonic love is awesome and legitimate and worthy of storylines and plot arcs WITHOUT it developing into “something more.”
So, if you go to YouTube, you can find soundtracks from Legends of Tomorrow. The one from Rip and Gideon's kiss is trippy to listen to, because you can make out their voices, but not their words, and it just... It just gives me a lot of feelings? They sound distant and faded, but it's still them, and ARGH!
I saw this message and went immediately to youtube, and guess what?? I have feels tooo!!!! It is incredibly trippy, like you can hear them, but it’s like ghosts. Like we’re eavesdropping on a really private moment? It’s so interesting.
I also listened to the extended version of this and I have to say, I absolutely love Gideon’s score (that is what I’m calling ‘Gideon’s always here’) it describes her so well. It’s kinda like techno sounding and also romantic. But also sorta adventurous and it just builds and builds and it’s so triumphant at the end, the moment she’s been waiting for?
I just have a lot of feels!! Thank you for telling me about this!!
So where I’m from, we have this thing with ships. They have weird names and we always refer to them by those names as a classification.
These are the ships that will never be canon. Mostly like those gay ships of straight guys that every fandom has.
These are the weak ships that are kinda like “I wouldn’t have a problem, per se, if this happened, but I don’t ship it hard.”
These are the ordinary ship. Like, you ship it more than the casual “I ship it,” but less than the battleship.
The strongest of the ships. It’s like the commander of everything shipping.
•The Pirate Ship
These are the ships that are already canon. They destroy other non-canon ships and plunder the remains, but we still love them.
These are the obscure ships that we still love. Whether it’s a random pairing that nobody seems to ship or just an obscure source, maybe some book nobody seems to have ever read. But usually, these pairs are basically like two subs passing without their lights on.
Named after a sunken Soviet sub, these are like the normal submarine, but will never be canon, and will probably sink with their nukes onboard.
These are the classifications of ships.
@yuzuling pointed this out, but it’s a great addition. These are the old ships, the ones that practically everyone has forgotten, but for you, they’re basically classics, those ships you know you can always go back to.
@thereonce-was-a-girl named this one.
It’s a “toxic ship”. For most of us, it’s the ship that we don’t like or support. We don’t openly spread hate for people who do ship it, but for us, these are the canonical ships that tend to cause the impossibility of a Titanic rather than allowing a ship to be a fleet ship or pirate ship.
