i dont like the harry potter books

Do you know how long fanfiction really is?

You know when you are just casually scrolling down Archive of Our Own, looking for a longer fic and you see one with 100-250k words and your like “yes finally some good, light reading!” 

Let me just help you understand something (Using HP as a reference as thats my fave books):

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone - 76,944 words
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - 85,141 words
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - 107,253 words
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - 190,637 words
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 257,045 words
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - 168,923
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Approximately 198,227,

Translate into some good Larry-fanfics:

Escapade146,112 words (5 chapters)
As You Are: 139,331 words (14 chapters
I don’t want to need you: 231,421 words (28 chapters)
Relief next to me: 271,512 words (23/25 chapters) 
Wear it like a crown: 141,303 words (13 chapters) 

SO DON’T FOR A SECOND BELIEVE THAT FANFICTION WRITERS AREN’T REAL AUTHORS BECAUSE THEY ARE LITERALLY WRITING BOOKS AS LONG  (and longer) AS THE BIGGEST HARRY POTTER BOOK ( which btw has over 800 pages!) WHICH IS THE DEFINITION OF AN AUTHOR!

Also if you thought you didn’t like to read but started to read fanfiction because they were “shorter” and now realize that you have been reading more than you thought then haha jokes on you! 

everytime i see steve harvey i’m like i know i’ve seen this guy somewhere but i dont watch his shows


and then it hit me…

Reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone for the 1st time vs reading it again:
  • Book: "The rumour is that James and Lily Potter are -are- that they're dead.
  • Me the 1st time: oh no, that's sad, I don't really know much about them but Harry Potter's parents are dead, how sad
  • Me now: NOOOOOOO THEY ARE NOT DEAD I REFUSE I DONT BELIEVE IT THEY DIDNT DESERVE TO DIE SO YOUNG HARRY NEEDS THEM TO RAISE HIM AND THEY ARE NOT DEAD NOOOO LALALALALALA NOPE
  • Book: "Young Sirius Black lent it to me"
  • Me the 1st time: aww Sirius Black seems like a nice chap, lending Hagrid his motorbike, I hope to see more of this character
  • Me now: AHHHHHH SIRIUS NO PLEASE NO THEYRE GONNA SEND HIM TO AZKABAN HE DIDNT DO IT HES INNOCENT I TELL YOU
  • Book: "He laid Harry gently on the doorstep, took the letter out of his cloak, tucked it inside Harry's blankets and then came back to the other two"
  • Me the 1st time: bitch, you just gonna leave the baby on the doorstep
  • Me now: bitch, you just gonna leave the baby on the doorstep

anonymous asked:

Do you like Harry Potter? If yes which house are you in? I am in Slytherin 💚

I took a survey because honestly i dont know anything about harry potter… Ive never read the books or watched the movies. 

but survey says I am apparently ravenclaw?

so…. there you go.

listen most of the grown ups u know who are boring and suck actually deep deep down want to be childish and fun and just had the world wring it out of them over the years.

i got my dad a shirt that said “im the world’s best FARTER i mean father” and he’s worn it almost every day since he got it? i got him a book of harry potter themed comebacks that are like 12 yr old humor and he quotes it every day??? my mom cracks up every time she hears a joke about how women must shed their bras once home and she and i go out for drinks and gossip about her friends sometimes and end up laughing at all the dumb shit that we deal with

and people say like “oh well you just have cool parents” but like NO???? i dont???? parents are just people? they’re just level 10 adults who got the fun drained out of them bc thats what society taught them if you let them have fun and give the opportunity to be goofy, they will be and honestly my parents fucking deserve a chance to be carefree and goofy after all these years. like yeah some of the things they’ve done as parents has SUCKED like scarred for life kinda shit but i cant help but sympathize because they’re as clueless as we are about stuff, if not more clueless bc they didnt grow up with the internet

growing up is realizing that grown ups dont know what they’re doing and are just dealin with the world the same as you but dont realize that they’re still allowed to access that inner-kid that we cling to. they can actually be pretty fun when you give them chance to be.

sorting hat quizzes be like:
  • 1.) What are your ideal first day of school accessories?
  • a- glasses, calculator, 10,0000 books and my all set and ready brain knowledge
  • b- LOOKS DONT MATTER WHEN YOU ARE BRAVE. COME AT ME I WILL FIGHT YOU
  • c- anything pink, cotten candy, hugs, tickles, and warm puppies
  • d- snake skin and the tears of my enemies

Bless,,, :´^) 💖💖💖

1. What is a book you finished in one sitting?
     I read all of aftg in 2 days, I didn’t even sleep,,

2. Were you always into reading or did something spark your reading interest?
     yeah when was like 8 I saw my sister reading harry potter and laughing and it pissed me off because she wouldn’t tell me what was funny so I just read them myself and now I love reading, its so wild, stories are so wild, it’s like being in another world

3. Are there any songs that you relate to a certain book?
     like it’s not a certain book in particular but “Somewhere only we know” by Keane has the same feel as getting lost in a novel, its so safe yet adventurous, 10/10 makes me cry every time

4. In which season do you get the most reading done?
     I was gonna say winter but tbh it’s more like spring/summer, I hate those seasons and reading provides an effective escape👌, like oh it’s hot and sunny now?? Well it’s SNOWING in Alagaesia and there’s DRAGONS

5. Which book character do you relate to most?
      Nicky Hemmick, dude,,, my kid,, like I’m kind of in the same boat with my parents, they’re christians and I’m a christian, but they don’t understand that you can’t hide behind your faith. You can’t use it as an excuse for your shitty behavior. The bible says it’s not our job to judge others. Our job is to love and to be patient and kind and forgiving. Idk man I hope I can be as brave as my boy one day,,

6. Do you have any reading goals for 2017? If so, what are your goals?
     I’ve been in such a reading slump wow,, I just want to read in general, just,, *clenches fist* read those books. Also though, I kinda want to read some classic books, like I’ve got Picture of Dorian Gray and Count of Monte Cristo and Frankenstein just taking up space on my shelf,, I’m a monster tbh I keep buying all these old books for the aesthetic and then not reading them

7. Are there any books that you feel like you need to read or else you’ll miss out on things at booklr?
     I need to read Six of Crows, fhdjdjsjjs ive had it for months and haven’t even cracked the spine

8. What is the most books that you’ve read in a week/month/year?
     pffftttt man,,,,, I can’t be expected to know,,,, I can put down 400+ pages a day if I like what I’m reading,, or I’ll go months without even looking at a book,,, *awkward shrug*

9. Is there one character everyone else absolutely loved but you despised?
     Kat is an amazing actress in shadowhunters and I really liked Lily in the movie but like,,,,, god I really don’t like Clary,, that whole “we just met like last week but I don’t want to be alive without you” Romeo&Juliet shit with Jace is so overplayed tbh,, and that kid gets away with way too much,,, why was a 15 yr old at a night club, and the sex in that demon cave in book 6,,, my mother would be PISSED

10. Are there any books that remind you of a certain place?
     I know this is cliche but reading/watching Harry Potter really does feel like coming home,, and The Raven Cycle feels like driving in the mountains,, also The Inheritance Cycle reminds me of my classroom in 6th grade and the theater classrooms in 8th and 9th grade

11. How many books do you own?
     you know what….. Brb…. I’m gonna fucking count them…………………….. okay,, there’s like 110, plus duplicates and like 2 ebooks

I’m so,,, bad at tagging,,, fhdjksjs
