Harrison and I both began to drink and at some point early on I said, “Do you want to see me do an imitation of you?”
Harrison didn’t walk, he swaggered, like John Wayne in slow motion – taking his seemingly bad attitude for a walk. To depict this, I moved out of sight and after a moment reappeared, strolling as he strolled, sauntering my way into whatever fresh hell I found myself. I’d become him, disenchanted Lord Ford, master of all he surveyed.
I hadn’t looked at Harrison yet to see how my portrayal of him was going over – too busy appearing indifferent and impatient with my surroundings. As I continued to portray his inner monologue, I finally let at least one of my eyes slide wearily to his face and saw that he was not only laughing, he was laughing that silent and hard laugh reserved for true enthusiasm. Almost 40 years later, I still think of it as one of the greater moments of my life.
here are the songs that I listen to when I’m sad they’re ranging from alt to post hardcore so a little bit for everyone

is it important to know how to reverse spells?? bc idk how but i still want to do them ah
You can still start doing spells without knowing how to reverse them right away.
It’s a useful skill to have, but not necessary until required; if you want to know it as a sort of preemptive thing, that’s still okay. For the most part, you really only need to know how to reverse a spell if something goes wrong, but for the most part they should go off without a hitch. I didn’t learn how to reverse spells before I started casting them, is really my point, and nothing came up. So, unless something comes up, it isn’t too big of a concern, but if you want to have that knowledge beforehand, just in case, that’s up to you.
Sometimes you may decide you just want to undo a spell you’ve cast, maybe because you don’t need / want it anymore, or perhaps you even have second thoughts about casting it. I have only had to break one spell, and it was a jar spell, so it was super easy to do.
For a lot of spells, doing the spell backward or in reverse can break it. Literally breaking the spell down in most cases is enough. Jars just need to be emptied and cleaned / cleansed. Candles can be snapped or the remains thrown out. Sigils are destroyed or have their energy released. Knots are undone. Poppets are opened and thrown out. Even a very thorough self cleansing can remove the effects of a spell. Some spells even come with reversals attached to the bottom, which is handy.
There are lots of other methods that can be used to reverse spells. I can give you some resources on that if you want, so you can look at them and have an idea, just if you want to be secure in that knowledge before you begin.

What if the Hogwarts sorting process is less about who you are, and more about what you need?
The sorting hat sees a boy thrust into a new world he barely understands, a boy desperate not to blend in with the crowd, and a girl who would sink as deep into her books as she is allowed, and says- what do these children need? They need courage. The courage to keep moving forward despite overwhelming circumstances and high stakes, the courage to see themselves as heroes, the courage to speak up and speak out against injustice.
The hat sees a lost girl whose world has been shattered, who can’t be bothered to fit the world she sees to others’ standards, and says- what does she need? Knowledge. The knowledge of how and why things happen, and the wisdom to accept the things she cannot change.
The hat sees a boy desperate to fill his father’s shoes, used to getting his way and confused at a world that works differently than he was taught. The hat says- he needs power. He needs an identity that will remind him that he has worth, that he can be more than he is.
I wouldn’t want to attend a hogwarts that sorted based on what universal human trait I exhibited most often. I wouldn’t want to attend a hogwarts that sorted similar personalities into uniform groups. I would want to attend a hogwarts that sorts based on its students’ needs, doing its best to help them succeed.
When dumbledore says, “perhaps we sort too soon,” maybe he sees the good that a little bit of courage, instead of a sense of self-worth inflated into superiority, could have done Severus Snape.
Maybe the most dark wizards come out of slytherin because, despite their house’s best intentions, they never quite find the confidence they need there. And it is the unsatisfied, those most disenchanted with the system, who seek to destroy it.
I wanted to make a lapiz lazuli that was colored like the actual stone! her gem is on her lower back right above her butt. she is kinda of disenchanted with homeworld at the moment, but isn’t quite ready to rebel. she is off color and therefore defective, but since she is too valuable she wasn’t shattered. She is very distrusting of other gems and is very closed off emotionally making her apathetic towards others plights. She is also quiet emotionally constipated as she see’s showing emotion as a weakness.
actor aus are pretty common within fandom, but just think about a Yuri!!! On Ice
actor AU set in Old Hollywood! It
would take place in the late 40s, but have all the aspects of the YOI universe
that we have come to love (no prejudice against race, gender, sexual
Victor Nikiforov as five time award winning mega
star and darling of the studio, being bored and disenchanted with his career
sees a picture starring Yuuri Katsuki. Despite the movie’s flaws, he is
enthralled by this new charming actor and his performance.
Yuuri Katsuki as a promising actor who suffers
from anxiety and as a result doesn’t have the ability to choose the correct
vehicles to fully showcase his talent and wonders if he should just quit
the after party of the biggest award ceremony of the season Yuuri becomes drunk
and hits on Victor, a super star who he has admired for years and made him want
to become an actor in the first place.
becomes even more enchanted with Yuuri after this and decides to take a break
from his acting career to help Yuuri pursue his dream of playing a part that’s
so good he would win an Academy Award for it, much to the displeasure of studio
boss Yakov Feltsman.
Yuri Plisetsky as the child actor who is now an
adolescent and wants to have his perfect debut in his first mature role. He is
the son of a former child actress and was raised on the studio lot, groomed by
the executives to be the next Victor Nikiforov. He was promised to be mentored
by Victor and becomes enraged to know he has been ditched for another actor
that shares his first name. He’s taken under the wing of former dancer/ silent
movie star turned studio big shot Lilia
Phichit Chulanot as Yuuri’s friend who he studied
acting with under the tutelage of Celestino
Chialdini. He excels in singing and dancing and wants to be the biggest
star to feature in Technicolor musicals like Gene Kelly. He dreams of writing
and starring in his own musical and ropes in his good buddies Guang-Hong Ji, tap dancer
extraordinaire, and Leo de la Iglesia,
singer turned actor, to work with him on this project.
Christophe Giacometti, one of Hollywood’s most popular
bombshells, is mostly known for his roles as the ditzy blond (think Marilyn
Monroe), but is actually deeply intellectual and sensitive. He wants to transcend
this persona and craves to be taken more seriously, but can’t seem to shake the
clueless sexpot image. He can’t help but feel jealous of his good friend
Victor, who is equally considered a sex bomb but IS taken seriously.
Jean-Jacques Leroy as a heartthrob who mainly stars as
the hero in adventure movies and swashbucklers. He has a reputation to be
difficult to work with, because according to directors he is always trying to
push his own vision onto a movie. He’s often accused of his pictures being
vehicles to display his own ego.
Seung Gil Lee as the actor who abhors the
publicity and elbow rubbing with his fellow actors that is involved with being
a celebrity. His perceived coldness makes him shine as a suave villain in film
Michele and Sara Crispino as former child actors who starred
in vaudeville together as a double act. Since trying to become big in
Hollywood, Sara longs for independent projects that don’t include her and her
brother as a set, much to the distress of Michele. He, in his turn, is pursued
by good friend Emil Nekola, who is a
great comedian, to star in his next screwball comedy together.
Mila Babicheva as the beauty queen of Hollywood,
known for her roles as the femme fatale and the hottest redhead since Rita
Hayworth. She becomes quite taken with her friend Sara, who has a sweet yet
powerful voice like Judy Garland, after seeing her in a musical picture.
Georgi Popovich, dramatic actor, deeply romantic
and a THESPIAN above all things. He has a tumultuous love life and his over the
top performances are often considered too avant-garde for Old Hollywood
sensibilities. Loves to star in Shakespeare adaptations.
Otabek Altin as an actor who is admired by everyone in the
industry for his quiet yet intense performances. He simultaneously has the
reputation of being a bad boy involved in some minor scandals as well as
keeping to himself mostly. Is often type-cast as the manly, smoldering anti-hero
in film noir pictures. Remembers Yuri Plisetsky well from his youth on the
studio lot and tells him this rather dramatically when Yuri is set to co-star
with him in his latest crime movie as ‘the icy blond’.
If y’all like this I’m going to write a fic, I s2g.
Edit: Yeeesss, I’m going to write a fic! check #yoi old hollywood au for future updates!
Sir Ywain the Bastard: BFFs with a lion who may or may not have been able to talk. Very strong and ambitious without giving in to greed. Lost his sanity for a bit but sheer willpower brought it back, and mopped 0 seconds about it, went straight back to decimating ass in the name of justice and to save many numerous dames (honestly, if there was a dame in danger, this guy and his lion pal popped up immediately). Batman if his motif was the lion and also if Albert was a lion. Notable Feat: One of his adventures had him disenchant a cursed maiden who had been turned into a dragon by kissing her three times. That’s right, folks, Sir Ywain smooched dragon girls for reals and you’ll never achieve the heights of his glory.
Sir Percival the Grail Knight: Exceedingly powerful yet never once lorded his immense strength over anyone, and in fact, his impossibly humble nature actually had him act in ways to make others around him seem cooler, even though he was extremely capable. Clad in only a silk dress, Percival once threw a fully armored and armed knight over a castle wall, and this other time, clad in only shitty tin “armor” he made from pots, dddddestroyed an Evil Knight Of Certain Renown and stole his armor. The armor of pots happened because a merchant pulled a fast one over him (he traded his extremely expensive silk and gold-weave dress for a cart of junk), and then defended the man that fucked him over when the town was about to lynch him. Notable Feat: Defeated Sir Lancelot of the Lake (yes, that Lancelot) in fair and single combat, and kept disarming him instead of injuring him. Even then, he kept claiming “oh no, he won, I was just lucky, I am pretty sure he had the advantage” so as to not sully the hero’s name. Oh, yeah, and, you know, he fucking achieved the Holy Grail.
Sir Gawain: Dayman, Fighter of the Nightman, Champion of the Sun, You Are A Master of Karate, And Friendship For Everyone. Good man, very strong, was kind of a dumbass, but that adds to the charm. He’s the kind muscleman that spots for your scrawny ass in the gym your first time and tells you how to do the exercises properly. Most likely to become a good friend in the long term. Notable Feat: His whole fucking life, man. The code of chivalry didn’t actually apply to peasantry, as in, knights were not required to protect peasants at all, yet Gawain was known as the Defender of the Poor. What a fucking stud.
Sir Galahad of Twilight: Galahad gets his own tier because he’s like some sort of Mary Sue that came outta nowhere in late transcriptions of Arthurian Mythos and sort of just was the best at everything ever in any context, which is funny because his father, Sir Lancelot, was more or less the same but actually likable (as in, Lancelot was not part of the original Old Welsh scriptures, and was basically really cool but also had a lot of flaws to his badassery, whereas Galahad is kinda just perfect). However, his divine protection does not allow me to put him at the bottom, for forces that dwarf my comprehension keep moving him up here. Notable Feat: Being a self-insert OC that got accepted in the canon.
Sir Lancelot of the Lake: Goku, but lecherous. Notable Feat: Goku, but lecherous.
Sir Bedivere of the Perfect Sinews: The world’s first slot machine. Went on a ridiculous numbers of adventures in the early game, some of them even with Arthur’s dog, Cavall, and despite having only one arm, m dude was basically a Dynasty Warriors character. Openly practiced witchcraft, which almost got him hanged a couple of times, if it hadn’t been for Arthur’s interference and testimonies to his legitimately good character. Notable Feat: With Cavall the Dog, went on an adventure to kill an Evil Magical Boar and steal its comb, before hitting the boar so hard it fell right into the ocean and drowned, because Bedivere Don’t Fuck Around.
Sir Bors the Younger: Never on schedule, but always on time. Sir Bors wasn’t a superhuman like some of his peers, but his strong point was his virtue and how hard he adhered to the Code of Chivalry, which is more that can be said for a lot of knights, even in higher tiers. A hot young maiden once told him “FUCK WITH ME OR I WILL KILL MYSELF” but he refuse because he wouldn’t break his Vow of Celibacy. The girl, of course, turned out to be a DEMON that tried to trick him. Then, another time, his brother, Sir Lionel, was getting whipped by a notched whip by an assailant while a young girl was being kidnapped by a rogue knight. Notable Feat: He chose to save the young girl over his brother. His brother was Kinda Pissed, so he came back to murder Bors for abandoning him, and Bors didn’t defend himself, saying “yeah I understand why you are angry, honestly”. God himself saves Bors by striking down Lionel with a pillar of fire. Bors then went to be one of the three knights to achieve the Holy Grail (the other two being Percival and Galahad)
Sir Tristan (Or “Tristram” for you historians): Not only was Mister Sadman a capable fighter, Tristan also played instruments and sang, and he was said have a very beautiful voice. The beauty behind Tristan is that he went through multiple trials and tribulations that tested his worth as a person and as a Knight truly (as in, someone who pursues the path of chivalry) rather than his martial might. Notable Feat: Accidentally consumes a love potion with Iseult, who was on her way to marry someone, and he still held onto his reigns as a knight without betraying either chivalry or her love too much.
King Arthur: cuck. Notable Feat: His knights all went on way more exciting adventures than him and his peak is when he gets shanked by his illegitimate son and shanks him back and then spends like fourteen hours bitching at Bedivere for him to go drop his sword in a lake.
