A pink faced girl with a white headscarf stumbled out of the line, put on the hat, which fell right down over her eyes, and sat down. ‘HUFFLEPUFF!’ shouted the hat. The table on the right cheered and clapped as Hannah went to sit down at the Hufflepuff table; the ghost of the Fat Friar waving merrily at her.
Never forget that the Hollywood Reporter is responsible for spreading the misinformation that Ghostbusters was on track to lose money. They are solely responsible for everyone thinking this movie was a flop. It wasn’t, Sony said so, we know so, but all anyone remembers is the article the HR put out prematurely when the movie had yet to even open in several world markets. Every subsequent regurgitation of the HR’s article in the days after had to change the numbers of the quoted “loss” BECAUSE IT WAS STILL MAKING MONEY. They went down from $70mil to $50mil the NEXT DAY, and $30mil the day after that, etc.. They could have printed a retraction but the damage was done. I work in Hollywood and every time someone mentions that it was a flop I tell them it wasn’t and remind them of this article and they confirm that that’s where they heard it. Pen is legit mightier than the sword.
Harry Potter and the Future He Doesn't Really Want, Thanks.
Title:Harry Potter and the Future He Doesn’t Really Want, Thanks. Author:Seefin Rating: NC-17 Word Count: 70,000 Approx. Summary:
It was addictive, the feeling of Draco Malfoy telling him things in a
soft voice early in the morning. Harry felt like he was taming a wild
animal, or petting a cat that hated everybody else. This train existed
outside of time, that was the only explanation Harry could come up with
as to why Malfoy was actually having a civil conversation with him right
now. Content/Warning(s): Modern Era
story has such a cool premise. It’s rather effing brilliant, actually.
Right after the war Harry starts having these dreams, visions of the
future. Not in the ‘you shall kill a Dark Lord’ sort of way, just very
vivid dreams that are in fact showing him the future. Sometimes
it’s little things, other times involve some of his friends, often it’s
something it’s going to happen to him, and if that’s not weird enough,
his latest dream showed him a vision of him and Draco Malfoy being a
couple, obviously in love, living together, such a sweet vision, so
naturally he wakes up freaking out and freaks some more to Luna (his
roommate, or rather he’s staying in her couch) and Neville (sleeping
with Luna). :D
He doesn’t want that future. It’s not that he hates Draco. He sort of ~nothing Draco, but it’s still Malfoy, so it’s enough reason for him to be utterly unsettled, so of course
he runs into Draco right after having that first dream. :D It’s rather
brilliant, I’m telling you. He keeps running into Draco all over the
city—Draco’s been sentenced to leave the wizarding world so he’s living
amongst Muggles and he’s really trying and, you know, I’m going to share
one of my favourite quotes:
He knew, then, that Malfoy had changed, or would change, or was in the process of changing.
knew, with the same surety, that he wanted to be there for it. He
wanted to watch as Malfoy unfolded himself and shook out the parts that
were cruel and mean and hateful. He wanted to watch for the moment when
Malfoy’s limbs and heart and brain and muscles moved in a way that
wasn’t heavy with unease and anger. He wanted to see a thousand more
easy smiles on Malfoy’s face, it wouldn’t even matter if he hadn’t put
them there himself. He wanted to see Malfoy bloom with laughter.
