i just cursed this tag



Ever had a flying burrito hit you? Well, it’s a deadly projectile, right up there with cannonballs and grenades.

it’s some bad mythology, the guards are here, i don’t know which heart is yours

Yes, I would very much like an essay about lighting, including the way Scorbus as a pairing is lit 😳😏😁

I’ll take that essay on lighting :)

Thanks to the lovely anons for egging me on with this! 

I think my favourite thing about the lighting in this play is how natural light is replicated, and the really specific blocks of lighting are used. There are moments when the light streams across the stage like it’s coming in through a window, once or twice it’s like someone’s opened a door and there’s just a bit of light pouring through into an otherwise dark room. There are cold, dark nights, the frigid Voldemort timeline, candlelight in the church, the murky green depths of the lake… I think the light is what transports you, and I think I’m going to have to narrow this essay down to talking about my favourite scenes, or I’ll be here all night.

I was thinking which zodiac would fit which Mogeko God/Devil:

-Aries = Siralos

-Taurus = Kcalb

-Gemini = Elux

-Cancer = Reficul

-Leo = Ivlis

-Virgo = Rosaliya Phantomrose

-Libra = Justim

-Scorpio = Satanick

-Sagittarius = Vicers

-Capricorn = Liliya

-Aquarius = Fumus

-Pisces = Etihw

Okay, okay, okay. I see all of these posts about Draco getting his comeuppance for being a Potter-obsessed little shit as a kid to Lucius with Scorpius doing the same to him, but have you considered the alternative? That Draco and Scorpius bond over their Potter nemeses/crushes?

Scorpius (about Albus): I just don’t understand why his hair is like that all the time, dad! It doesn’t make sense!
Draco (about Harry): I know! It always looks like he’s just fought a a herd of hippogriffs!
Scorpius: Or been flying in rain. He does know brushes were invented, right?
Draco: I’ve felt the exact same way since the first time I saw him! Is wild hair genetic? Can wild hair be genetic?
Scorpius: Do you think he’d do it intentionally? That seems really… conniving.
Draco: I’ve learned not to make hasty assumptions when Potter is concerned. He might just do it on purpose to annoy me… it seems like the kind of thing he would do….
Scorpius and Draco together: Ugh, Potter!
Lucius crying into his hands in the background.

For me, you can say the writers intended Scorpius and Albus to be purely platonic in the exact way you could say Stephenie Meyer intended Edward to be a really great boyfriend.

Going through the Cursed Child tag just now a I saw post saying that Fantastic Beasts has no strong, lead female characters and I’m beinding my mind in all different directions but I just can’t see how anyone could watch the movie and come to that conclusion. One female lead is an Auror who fearlessly takes on the big bad, the other creates a plan to save Newt and her sister when they’re about to die, executes it and succeeds. They’re both active, they both move the story forward as much as the male leads, they both have roles in the story outside of the male characters.

I’ll bet it’s because they don’t kill anyone or beat anyone up. This idea that in order to be a strong female character you need to be violent.

  • Looks like they could kill you but is actually a cinnamon roll: Scorpius Malfoy
  • Looks like a cinnamon roll but could actually kill you: Rose Granger-Weasley
  • Looks like they could kill you and can actually kill you: Delphi
  • Looks like a cinnamon roll and is actually a cinnamon roll: Teddy Lupin
  • Probably stole some cinnamon roll (hearts) *cough scorpius cough* at some point: aLbUS pOtTeR

Shitty churchnut doodles in the back of my notebook bc I super don’t wanna finish writing this paper for class oh my gosh Im so bored of it

Sunday 23rd October Show Review

Normally I make separate posts for each cover I see, and I expected this to be a short, snappy little Annabel Baldwin as Delphi post, but there were so many covers yesterday, and so many of the main cast did ridiculous, adorable, and hilarious things that I really just have to try and write about everything and everyone. Welcome to the mega post. I hope it doesn’t disappoint.

Title: Names are not Gifts
Summary: Niki has never had a surname, but not for lack of a choice for one. It’s just that none of them seem to fit. It’s just that they are not people she can be. — But she cannot be the person she was back then, either.
Warnings: References to child abuse and suicide ideation. Also Fermet exists. He doesn’t even do anything bad in this, but I feel like his existence should be warned about regardless. He’s there. It’s unfortunate. I don’t know why he keeps being there. Cursed!

Notes: 1. I’m looking to hire someone to stand over my shoulder and punch me any time I start writing a pointless fic about Niki, please, I’ll pay you 2. I promised myself no Fermet in February, but I am a liar. 3. This was partially because of that bit about Elmer not being marry-able, and partially because there was at one point a very loose discussion that made its way to the skype chat on what if Niki was given a surname. I cannot justify why I felt the need to write this.

unsolicited fun fact: being super into a podcast when you have trouble processing speech is. uh. hell, I’ve listened to the petals to the metal arc of taz 5 times and i still don’t know how it ended


So because my sister was in town, the only best thing to do was to go watch Cursed Child again. Had my Ravenclaw gear on woohoo! My sister was inspired to finally get sorted into a house after the play and now she’s a Slytherin. I am bitter. 🐍🐍 Sorry, late to post as usual because I’m queen of procrastination just like Scorpius is king of Geeks
