Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Ficlet: Cheer Up

982 words, G rated

Albus comes home miserable from Christmas break in fourth year, and Scorpius wants to cheer him up.

In the video of the new cast, there’s a shot of Samuel doing some stupid gesture with his wand, where it looks like Scorpius is doing an impression of his dad to make Albus laugh. He looks like he’s doing an over-exaggerated Malfoy act. So then I had to write it…

This is my first bit of writing about the new cast! Short, but hopefully sweet.

Hiya, i recently read your response to my ask(thank u btw) and u had said you didn't even finish college. Does working at cartoon network not require an arts/ communications degree? What education/ experience is required? Would u recommend finishing college? Would u recommend trying to intern?

Well, I’ve heard rumors that studios are starting to require degrees to get hired, but in my experiences, a degree was never once relevant whatsoever. So I’m not sure if that rumor is just a rumor or not. I never even got asked about my college experience.

I think for a lot of places, your portfolio/skill as an artist sort of acts as your degree as opposed to an actual piece of paper that just says you took classes because your work tells people what they need to know about your abilities more than anything else (this is a very art industry specific thing, I know other careers require those degrees).

Whether or not college is a path you want to take is really up to the individual! I think some people benefit greatly from going to college because they need that work environment to learn and feel they can grow as an artist, while other people are more comfortable learning on their own. At the end of the day, college is just ONE path out of many that can get you where you need to go. Plus, considering how expensive college is in the U.S. nowadays, I personally recommend if you can avoid it and save yourself the loans, do that.

If you can try for the opportunity to intern, I’d say go for it because it looks like it’s a lot of fun! I’ve never interned. :(

I think one important piece of advice I have for people trying to make it in the industry: Don’t limit your options.
I’ve seen so many people get very narrow ideas about how they HAVE to get into the industry, saying they HAVE to go to college, or HAVE to go to a specific Art College (*coughyouknowtheonecough*), and so put their lives on hold trying to meet these arbitrary goals that aren’t even their end game goal. If college and getting that degree works for you, then great! But know there are so many other ways and if plan A doesn’t work, try a plan B, or plan C, D, etc. and keep trying different methods until something works out.

Inspiration (4 of 10 in no particular order)

Next in my list is @cazjl who I have been following for awhile now on instagram. He has a way of combining casual and tailored clothing with great success. His outfits always look well put together but also stand out in a great way. For example, in the photo, he’s wearing a linen safari jacket but it’s obviously not in summer. It works because of the rest of his outfit - the burgundy cardigan, dark denim and chunky longwing shoes, all complement each other. This is just one example but looking through his instagram feed shows that this is not a one-off. There are many examples and you’ll have a great time going through them. He’s got a great eye for picking very interesting pieces and combining them in a way that’s coherent, balanced and interesting at the same time. On top of all that, he’s a really nice guy that’s always helpful.

I give him credit for turning me onto a lot of brands and pieces that I would not have considered before. Needless to say, he’s got a great eye. He wears some pretty high-end stuff but also throws Uniqlo and J Crew into the mix from time to time. You don’t have to wear exactly the same items that he does, to achieve a similar look. For example, in the photo above, you could swap out the safari jacket for a tan field coat or wear boots instead of the shoes. Assuming everything fits, if you keep the colours in the same ballpark and and wear somewhat similar pieces, I reckon it would be a pretty great outfit but it would be be YOUR take on it.

The watch is the 1st PAT-RN collaboration with Timex. They’ve taken a watch from the Timex Archive and made it their own. The strap is woven in Italy with indigo-dyed thread, among others.

I don't believe that ufo person is actually pro-choice.. I mean, they're reblogging stuff from libertarians and conservatives and bigots and TERFs.. (i did a quick scroll through their blog when i went there to block them, and they're reblogging shit from URLs like nolivesmatter and friendly-patriarchy or something like that.. ugh). IMO, they're probably anti-choice fishing for people to piss off.

I tried going through their blog, but as an actual scientist with several peer reviewed papers on developmental and stem cell biology, I legitimately got a headache trying to go through that page. I applaud V for her patience. I would lose my mind trying to argue with someone who doesn’t understand fundamentals of biology

Things get broken, and sometimes they get repaired, and in most cases, you realize that no matter what gets damaged, life rearranges itself to compensate for your loss, sometimes wonderfully.

Can I ask why you ship kamisero? This is not to be mean, I just can't remember a lot of their interactions in the manga or anime and would love to be reminded of why they work well as a couple

!!!!! Ooookay this is kind of a weird question for me and I don’t really know how to properly answer because… uhm… they’re kind of always together?? Actually??? I mean they haven’t really been the protagonists in any arc so it’s mostly background stuff but when they appear they’re more often than not together - here, have some panels I’ve found skimming real fast through the parts I remembered them being there

(+Mina!!! squad moment heck yes!!)

(+Kiri!!! more squad moments!!!!!!!)

(real talk more often than not if Kami and Mineta are in the same place Sero is right there with them, I try to pretend that’s not true but alas)

(+Baku!!! Even more squad moments!!!! This one’s from an extra, I can’t find the translated version anymore - rip - but they’re trying to get Baku to play the thumb game I’m gonna cry this squad will kill me)

also on the cover of Vol 4 👌👌👌

The thing about me shipping them is that as I said I do prefer them as friends, which they are and it’s adorable, but I’m always up for entertaining the idea of good friends in romantic relationships so I’m 👍👍👍 about KamiSero too haha

adrien’s sad, devastated look when he’s denied snacks reblog if you agree

I have such a strong love-hate relationship towards MM:

• I love how well-rounded the characters are and make me believe that they actually care about me.
• I hate how I’m reminded of how lonely I am for not having people like them IRL.
• I love how real the characters can get and just resonate with me with their struggles and worries.
• I hate how the game hits way too close to home and draws lots of gross sobbing from me.
• I love how the game is set-up in real-time to make it more immersive.
• I hate how the chats are set up at odd hours, thus ruining my sleep schedule even more.
• I love the text and call features.
• I hate how those are the only texts/calls I’ll ever receive.
• I love how the game breaks the fourth wall sometimes.
• I hate how I’m reminded that it’s just a game, and they’re not real.
• I love this game.
• I hate how much I love this game.

so. we always talk about dan looking at phil because it literally never ends but can we talk about phil looking at dan?

more and more in these recent videos we’ve seen him letting his guard down and it honestly makes me ecstatic. first, that he’s comfortable enough with us to do this in the first place and second, that he’s still comfortable enough to leave it in. the way phil looks at dan,,,, it’s like dan continues to surprise him every day and phil still can’t believe that. dan is this fascinating being who phil has watched grow into his own person with wonderful thoughts and ideas. he may have a bleak view of the world, but he’s never had a bleak view of phil and sometimes phil still can’t believe how lucky he is. no matter how much they annoy each other, phil loves dan with everything that’s in him, and then some. phil’s eyes reflect everything we feel about dan and more and i think that’s absolutely beautiful. i love love.
