Idk if this is nationwide but if you’re in Indy don’t go to school this Thursday. Don’t go to work, don’t go out shopping; basically don’t contribute into what runs our nation’s daily life. this is a protest again trumps immigration policy. Please spread the word.

Maybe it’s normal but I noticed this when I was looking through the first four screenshots of Kiri that I saved from today’s chapter. The boy just couldn’t keep his mouth shut. There were only 3 other shots of his face and in those his mouth was shut, but I just couldn’t stop giggling at him gaping all over the place. Cuz he’s only actually talking in a couple of them. The boy just spent the meeting with a :O face.

Phantom/Palais Garnier Experts of Tumblr--

y’all want to help a girl out? I know that there is a fairly large library in the Opera Garnier, as I was privileged enough to walk through the part of it open to the public last fall. However, there’s another section to it, and I think it looks REALLY COOL, but I have been able to find almost no pictures of it. I found this old drawing in the Wikipedia article about the opera house: 

Along with a few others of other parts of the opera, but it was this room in particular that intrigued me. I know there are upper levels to the library because of things like this: 

See the guardrail? That means there’s a second level. Additionally, after a bit of digging I was able to find that the present-day space represented in this drawing, of another part of the library:

Exists today in pretty much its original form:

(The picture is taken from the other side of the room, but, whatever. You get it.)

Anyway, it seems odd to me that they would keep this room and the hallway shown above, as well as have there be a second level, if there wasn’t that big circular room with all the stairs and windows. But no matter how hard I’ve searched I can’t find ANY actual pictures of that room. It’s driving me crazy. IF it still exists, it’s the counterpart to this dance classroom on the other side of the opera:

(Ahhh sorry that’s a blurry screencap, it’s late and this is the only image that shows enough of the room that I could find).

Anyway, this is the counterpart, which we can see from its circular shape and the signature oval windows. And if you look at this transverse section of the opera, which according to Wikipedia is a scan from an image drawn by Thierry Beauvert in 1996:

On the left hand you see the pavilion used as a dance classroom, and on the right side you see something that looks preeetty dang similar to that first picture of the library.

If this image really was drawn in 1996, then the library as it is in the drawing is probably pretty similar to the way it is IRL today. (It’s also important to note that Wikipedia specifically says that much of the library is the same as it was in the 19th century.) However, if the image was only scanned in 1996, then it may be completely different. But if it is still the same, why the frickity-frack can’t I find any photos of it? 

This is basically a really long, over-explained cry for help and documentation, from anyone who knows anything about the not-really-open-to-the-general-public sections of the Opera. I’m gonna tag a few people who might know something about this, but anyone is free to contribute info/photos if there are any! @fdelopera, @operafantomet, @ancientphantom–if I’ve tagged any of you in error please forgive me, I’m still quite new to the Tumblr phandom and don’t exactly know who to ask about this sort of thing! Thanks for reading! If you are able to help me with this I will love you eternally & would probably give you my soul if I wasn’t a ginger

I know the average IQ among Hoodies isn't very high, but try to follow. It doesn't matter if you're the nicest person alive. What you like, what you support is trash. It's offensive, gross and idiotic. That's why you don't have a place in ER fandom. You support everything that's wrong. You're misogynistic trash. You contribute nothing positive to this fandom. The moment you decided that OQ is great & that Lana should be stuck in scenes with Smag, you lost your right to be a part of ER fandom.


“…And I encourage you to support one another. Unity is the most important. Any bullying, or segregation, separation, whatever. Fighting between ships — whatever.  I don’t support any of that. … There’s just no room for it. There’s a lot of other people in the world doing that, let’s not bring it here, please.” – Lana Parrilla (at about the 4:47 mark, if that doesn’t autostart there)


It seems we need to review this ^^^^

You are not the gatekeeper of the Evil Regal fandom. You don’t get more of a say over who belongs here than, y’know, LANA PARRILLA. Who seems quite fine with all of us Hoodies, or at least she has every time I have met her, and spoken with her (occasionally about OQ related things), and had her sign OQ stuff (that she has complimented). She knows I’m a fan of OQ, she knows I’m a fan of Sean, and yet she has never once been anything but kind and gracious to me. 

But you know what she HAS spoken out against? Publicly? What she has specifically asked her fans not to do? What you are doing right now.

So you can keep doing this all day long, and I can keep posting that video where she, y’know, specifically asks you not to, all day long. But just be aware that no matter how many times YOU tell me I am not welcome here, they will not carry more weight with me than the times that Lana Parrilla has made it clear that I am welcome. 

You don’t trump the Queen. Sorry bout it.

Also, while we’re on the subject of contributing positive things to this fandom – what positive impact are you having, exactly, by harassing a bunch of women about a ship? By calling us misogynistic trash, calling our ship offensive and gross, insulting our intelligence? That’s positive contribution in what way, again?

Also, I didn’t decide Lana should be in scenes with Sean Maguire. That was the OUAT casting department. 

I’ve noticed a somewhat troubling trend in which autistic/autistic coded characters are referred to as “my smol ace baby” or “my little aro boy” by non autistic people, and where autistic coded characters are immediately labeled as aro/ace by neurotypical fans. 

I want allistics to think long and hard about how they talk about autistic/autistic coded characters, and how infantilization plays into the way they think about those characters’ sexualities. There’s nothing wrong with having an ace headcanon for an autistic character, but I still want you guys to think about how you talk about autistic folks and notice if there’s a pattern to what characters you headcanon as aro/ace. 

We live in a culture where people are incredibly uncomfortable with developmentally disabled people having sexual and romantic feelings for people, and I need people to realize that the way they talk about autistic sexuality does not exist in a vacuum. 

I need you to ask yourselves these questions: Would I headcanon this character as aro/ace if it weren’t for their autistic coded traits? Am I uncomfortable with the idea of an autistic person expressing sexual/romantic feelings? How does the language I’m using to describe these characters contribute to the infantilization of disabled people (and ace people, while we’re at it)? Do I headcanon all autistic/autistic coded characters as aro/ace or just these specific ones?

*This post does not apply to autistic aro/ace folks.

Since I see many comments about this: Mackenzie has deleted hateful comments multiple times today. But the sock accounts pop up so quickly that she would have to be on IG the entire time to get rid of them. And she isn't posting innuendo. She shares moments of her life. It's only innuendo if one wants it to be. Not everything is a conspiracy. Thank you SHD for standing up against hate.

I know Anon. She deleted all the time comments like those I posted today. But they jump out like mushrooms. In the last few days, no peace is given. You can not expect her to stay 24/7 on instagram. I know that my contribution will not change the situation, but silence does not help anyone.

Considering I don’t make graphics, gifs, edits, or any technical contribution to the snk fandom at all, just weird captions with the perfect accompanying screenshot…

I’m uselessly happy to be in trending tags all four weeks the show has been back on.

Misadventures in Babysitting

Summary: Ron hoped he and Hermione could at least function as ordinary baby-minders, but Teddy Lupin is an extraordinary child.

Rating: T for language


A pleasant breeze wound its way through a park on the outskirts of London on a beautiful autumn afternoon, ruffling the rather exceptional hair - his bright ginger, hers prodigiously bushy - of a young couple ensconced on a bench. Though the day wasn’t particularly cold, the couple sat close together as they watched two little boys enthusiastically dig and roll about in the park’s sandpit. They laughed at the children’s antics, one every now and then pointing out to the other something particularly cute the little brown-haired boy had done.

“Look at how clever he is with that little spade. Oh goodness, he is going to need such a bath tonight!” Hermione exclaimed as Teddy upended a small pail of sand over his head and laughed uproariously.

Ron unconsciously squeezed his arm around her a little tighter at the happy tone of her voice. He pressed a kiss to the top of her head, ignoring the flyaway strands of her hair that the wind blew into his face, and reflected on how surprisingly well the day had gone.

When his father had flooed into the shop that morning with the news that his mother had a nasty cold and couldn’t watch Teddy, Ron had surprised everyone - himself included, truth be told - by offering to take him for the afternoon. After all, he had never watched the rambunctious 18-month-old on his own, or any other child for that matter. When you came from a big family, people expected you to be good with kids - but it didn’t really hold when you were the almost-youngest. He had practically been a baby himself when Ginny was born, so he had never really had any experience watching over a much-younger child.

As soon as he told Hermione, she had actually taken the afternoon off to help (Ron chose to believe that this was a mark of her fondness for spending time with Teddy rather than an indication of her confidence in his single-handed baby-minding abilities), so he had the bonus of spending a weekday afternoon with his hard-working girlfriend. The time was doubly-precious as his Auror training program was due to resume shortly, meaning extended bouts away from home and a dispiriting lack of leisure time.

Not wanting to expose Teddy to any germs at the Burrow, they had first taken him to their flat where he had spent an hour playing with a grudging Crookshanks. Teddy had been delighted with the furry, orange beast, chasing him and babbling his version of the cat’s name, but when “Gooks” started making several aggressive bids for escape Hermione had wisely suggested this nearby park.

anonymous asked:

I think her engagement isn't the problem, you know? As sad as it may sound, I think she would have been sidelined anyway. If anything, she probably would have been more sidelined because she wouldn't even have those panels to talk about. I don't know, I just feel like she is more than just another wife and the setting just doesn't allow her to contribute as much as girls like Kougyoku, for example, who are directly involved in the situation. I'm sorry for the random rant! 2/2

I’m going to paste your entire question below before answering. In retrospect, it would have made things less confusing if I had responded to this ask first with the bit about my submission box being an option for long questions. Whoops!


I hope I don’t sound mean but I think people are too harsh on poor Morgiana. She’s not royalty or anything so I think people expect her to do things she can’t in a setting that focuses so heavily on politics and whatnot. Obviously Ohtaka could put more focus on her (I wish, I really love her) but I think a lot of people also have somewhat unrealistic expectations for a character built this way.

 The “trophy wife” jokes kind of rub me off the wrong way, I don’t know.  I think her engagement isn’t the problem, you know? As sad as it may sound, I think she would have been sidelined anyway. If anything, she probably would have been more sidelined because she wouldn’t even have those panels to talk about. I don’t know, I just feel like she is more than just another wife and the setting just doesn’t allow her to contribute as much as girls like Kougyoku, for example, who are directly involved in the situation. I’m sorry for the random rant!


I agree with you wholeheartedly, anon. I think it’s extremely unreasonable and unfair that Morgiana is constantly being criticized for not hitting a political home run while so many other  female were born on third base.

I think she suffers from a problem similar to Mikasa Ackerman from Shingeki no Kyojin in that she’s generally tight-lipped and got a great deal of character development early on in the story. I think more people would be able to see that she’s just as developed as fandom darlings like Kougyoku if her development had been stretched over many story arcs. Of course, that wouldn’t make any narrative sense. It would be silly to have Morgiana dancing for the first time in the World Exploration Arc, or realizing that she didn’t have to ask permission to do something she wants to do just after the battle against the medium.

Realizing you have friends rather than masters who you don’t need to ask permission to hang out with? Experiencing joy and dancing for the first time? Pfffft. That’s not character development! Why look at that skimpy outfit she’s wearing. She’s just a mindless trophy waiting for a man to claim her. *eyeroll*



Even before she came to that realization in Sindria, Morgiana was willing & able to speak freely to a powerful monarch and successfully persuade him to take Alibaba more seriously. That’s a huge step for someone who was still mentally struggling with the notion that she could break free from slavery again just days before she arrived in Balbaad!





I think she gets a lot of flack for being “all brawn and no brains” because she spends so much time with more emotionally volatile male characters who are also seeking to increase their physical combat abilities. The only difference is that she has doesn’t have as many responsibilities to fret over while she’s training. She shouldn’t be faulted for not being born with the burdensome responsibilities that Aladdin, Alibaba and Hakuuryu do.

Why isn’t it enough just to get over the psychological trauma associated with being a slave and managing to live a normal, happy life?

Masrur essentially does the same thing over the span of two standalone mangas. I’ve never heard anyone criticize him for being one-dimensional or lacking character development. I don’t know, maybe people have criticized him for it, or think that he’s a one-dimensional character and are fine with it. I think he’s a very complex, well-developed, insightful character. Honestly, Masrur seems to be the only person in the manga who has consistently able to give sound personal and political advice to anyone who bothers to ask him about such things. Ja’far and the magi have their moments, but I think Masrur still comes out on top when you consider how many times people have come to him for advice and how many times he gave them good advice. 

 So what if Morgiana wants to get married and not fight in bloody battles every day? Even when she had come to accept that she had feelings for Alibaba, she showed an admirable amount of self-awareness when she assertively asked him to wait because she still needed to grow more as an individual before entering into any kind of romantic relationship. 





That’s an impressive amount of emotional intelligence for well-educated IRL early twenty-something in our day and age to have, nevermind a former slave with little formal education in an overwhelmingly patriarchal society! If Kougyoku, who possessed a superior formal education and carried a great deal of responsibility as a princess and king vessel, was that emotionally intelligent and mature, she never would have fallen prey to Sinbad’s manipulation. Her character has developed significantly since the made her debut, but she’s still suffers from a bit of naivete with regard to politics and a lack of self-awareness when it comes to romance. I’m not claiming that such shortcomings are evidence of Kougyoku being a poorly developed character, but I think it underscores the value of knowing what you want out of life and being realistic about the things you need to do to get there. That applies to commoners and empresses alike.

For as much as people praise Magi the Labyrinth of Magic for it’s complex, grey characters, the notion that complex characters who spend their early years fighting to save themselves and the world would never want to settle down to a peaceful life akin to the people they fought so hard to save is patently ridiculous. Isn’t that what Ja’far spent much of his life being thankful for?

Yes, he has a busy job doing lots of paperwork and keeping Sinbad out of trouble, but I fail to see how deciding for yourself that you want to act as a support system for your childhood savior for the rest of your life diminishes the character’s complexity. That’s what both Ja’far and Morgiana are doing. Morgiana went even further by acting as bot watchdog and emotional support system for the person she had finally realized that she truly loved.

I triple double dog dare you or anyone else reading this to roll up on earnest SinJa shippers like @sinbad-ai, @mari-m-rose or @naoscifra and say that Ja’far is lacking in complexity or character development. Those are the most reasonable, emotionally mature SinJa shippers I can think of and I suspect they would take umbrage with the notion that a canonical romance with Sinbad would “ruin his character,” and they absolutely SHOULD.

I can already hear Morgiana critics claiming that a comparison between her and Ja’far is doesn’t work because she didn’t switch gears from being a martial artist to being some sort of administrative staffer like Ja’far. Again, she’s running up against a double standard. Much like Masrur, she already had a knack for martial arts. Jamil forced her use her skills to harm others against her will. Now she decides how she gets to use her power and what skill subsets she wants to hone and utilize. It’s no different from Masrur giving up swordsmanship and refusing to fight to the death in Zepar’s dungeon.

Ironically, I think the greatest testament to how much her character developed came from the heartbreaking scene in Magi 331 where she explains to Alibaba why she’d be satisfied with dying as she is. She seems to be saying that she’s been through so many changes and experiences that she truly believes she’s already lived a rich and fulfilling life. I don’t think the things she expresses in the panel below are ideas entirely planted in her head by Neo-Sinbad. I think his brainwashing has put her in the same mental state she’d be in if she was about to lose a physical fight to the death or die from a terminal illness.

I’ll end this dissertation response with the aforementioned panel, and let Morgiana’s words as translated by @itsdannystormborn to speak for themselves.

  • painter James Potter
  • He keeps a paintbrush in his wand pocket like 90% of the time
  • Has paint under his fingernails and all over his hands like 24/7
  • His pants, shirts, and robes are all covered with paint as well
  • Plus everything in the boys dormitory
  • He doesn’t like charming his paintings, because he believes it takes the true magic out of it
  • Prefers Muggle paint brands because of that reason
  • His mum got him into painting when he was like five or so
  • From that point on there were colorful fingerprints on the walls and tapestry’s and everything else
  • He doesn’t like watercolor as much as acrylic or oil because he doesn’t have as much control
  • Gets in trouble frequently for using a small thin paintbrush to do his schoolwork instead of a quill
  • He abhors the scent of oil paints
  • For their one year anniversary, he painted the two of them cuddling, and at first Lily thought it was slightly creepy because what if somebody took a picture and he recreated it with nice paints, but after James reassured her that that wasn’t what happened, she smiled and kissed him and carried the painting around with her for the next two days.
  • He has at least thirty paintings of Lily and proclaims that she is his muse
  • Very proud of the time he painted his own nudes
  • At one point, when Remus was very depressed and sad, James decided that he would paint him Literally. And so he did, and when James was finished and Remus looked in a mirror, he was in utter disbelief, because no way on earth, could that thing; that piece of art, be him.
  • James’ favorite thing to paint, besides Lily, was either clouds, flowers, or muddy shoes
  • One time baby Harry got into James’ paint box, and yes, babies covered in paint are adorable, but not when the paint could be toxic and you don’t know if said baby ate it.
  • Drinks his paint water instead of coffee more often than he’d like to admit.

  • maxiesatanofficial: Any sufficiently "indulgent" or "rich" food would qualify, imo.
  • maxiesatanofficial: A matter of quality rather than gluttony's quantity.

  • eternalfarnham: And in the middle, I'm thinking -- for the falsifiers, traitors, etc. -- you've got, like, really complex, hot Italian food, since, y'know, Dante -- and that was the section where he stopped /pitying/ the sinners, people say.
  • eternalfarnham: Like, he liked the people in lust and gluttony, etc., a little more, because he felt that sins committed from love rather than malice weren't so awful.
  • eternalfarnham: At least, I think I've read that somewhere.
  • maxiesatanofficial: Huh, 'zat so? Interesting.
  • eternalfarnham: Mind you, he defined "heresy" as an active, malicious sin.
