Just a reminder

to the HP nerd world at large that at this point in time, when Fantastic Beasts takes place, Grindlewald is in possession of the elder wand. This is why he was pretty much impervious to all spells. Also a reminder: Newt Scamander overpowered him & Tina used accio on on his wand(? Fact check needed) Either way the elder wand has a new master, and this could contribute to a significant reduction of Grindlewald’s power, allowing for him to be defeated in the imminent battle between him and Dumbledore that is definitely going to take place in the course of these movies.

Ewan McGregor’s roles, 1994-2016

After the release of this number, the number of young people wanting to enlist as Aurors suddenly tripled. 

“So, why did you want to be an Auror ?”

“Usually I say it’s because I want to protect the city, but … Fuck, man. Have you seen Percival Graves ?” 

Oh.

i have the sudden, overwhelming desire to write a body swap fic where Graves and Newt are on the receiving end of a miscast spell and have to suffer the admittedly hilarious consequences

For the love of all that’s good and pure in this godforsaken world, do not think about sherlock and john slow dancing in the middle of their living room, barefoot, in the golden late afternoon light, with “the way you look tonight” playing in the background.  Do not dare think about Sherlock singing softly in John’s ear “you’re lovely, with your smile so warm and your cheeks so soft, there is nothing for me but to love you..”, and John replying with the next few lines “And that laugh that wrinkles your nose, it touches my foolish heart..”  And above all else do not imagine sherlock dipping john and whispering against his neck “cause I love you, just the way you look tonight”, punctuating every word with brief, cute, feathery kisses while john chuckles giddy and light-headed from the overwhelming exhilaration of their love ❤️

Neurodiversity and the medical vs social models of disability

(For those not aware, the medical model of disability is the belief that disability stems from inherent characteristics within the disabled person, while the social model of disability is the belief that disability is caused by society being set up in a way that doesn’t accommodate us.)

I’ve noticed that the vast majority of NTs operate under the medical model of disability, at least when it comes to ND people. In addition, many of them follow that up with the “just world” hypothesis - the idea that bad things only happen to bad people. Together, it makes a very potent, very awful combination: “there is something inherently wrong with you, and it’s your own fault”.

(I suspect that most anti self-dxers in the ND community also operate under the medical model, but I don’t have enough data points to say that for sure.)

It leads to a lot of other unpleasant things too:

-The dismissal of services such as therapy, because hey, if it’s a medical problem, surely you can only treat it medically.

-The idea that ND people are inherently “broken”, because, again - the problem must lie within us, not within society’s treatment of us.

-The belief that we must be “fixed”, since obviously being ND is a horrible plague on us and we desperately want to be NT.

Someone operating under the social model, meanwhile, would have beliefs such as:

-Being ND isn’t inherently bad, it’s just a thing some people are that we ought to accommodate for.

-ND people are not broken and don’t need to be fixed. Some need therapy, some need meds, and some just need a world that’s a little less cruel.

-ND people are the greatest authority on neurodiversity, not their psychs, teachers, or parents.

TL;DR Personally, I’ve found that operating under the social model is more conducive to treating ND people like people and to our recovery.

I present to you: Presidents Dancing

Let’s take a look at some of the highlights, shall we?

Ha ha, ol’ Bush. Classic.

Well hello there Mr. Washington (impersonator)

Oh, come on Tiny Nixon, you can do better than that!

Work it, Tiny Clinton!

He’s not even a US President and I don’t even care! (please don’t throw me in jail)

And of course my personal favorite…

The most important person in America, dancing with Barack Obama.

i’m getting lazier and lazier to draw shit when i see people (including my followers) just reblog mindlessly any kinds of contents, not bothering to check if those are made by op or just stolen. those thieves like attention. you like your content. and you reblog it but you don’t care about the people who make that content as long as the thing shows up on your lawn, including from thieves, shame on you. if you keep supporting those thieves you will never have new contents because the creators will leave.

Okay but imagine a jedtavius at the movies au

-Jed trying to hold Octy’s hand yet being to awkward to because Oct has the popcorn so he must choose between his flaming homosexuality and his flaming appetite

-Sloppy kisses because the stupid armrest of the chairs doesn’t move up

-Oct throwing popcorn at Jed and just being a dork in general

-Jed’s quiet and annoyed commentary at the movie

-Both of them complaining because “omg it’s right there why is this main character so stupid”

-Other people shushing them because honestly these two nerds

I fixed it! :D
