Have you ever tried to act like a character in Harry Potter?
ooooh, that’s kind of a great story! okay. do you have popcorn? okay. have some and then come back to listen to it.
when i finished reading the harry potter series for the third time, i realized that at the lightning era, my favorite trio was the silver one and that my favorite character was Luna Lovegood. here in brazil we don’t call her “Loony”, we call her “Dilua”, which is also a way of saying that the person changes her mind about things really quickly. and i was eleven at the time, so i changed my mind about things very easily. and i made an odd type of connection:
“if i am Dilua, i probably am like Luna. and if i am like Luna, i should act like her.”
and i did. at the interwebs, in real life, at home, i just wanted to be like that like girl that was incredibly naive and strong at the same time. like an innocent little child that is a cinnamon roll at once and then a SINnamon role the next second. (Luna is fucking badass, she fucking found the fucking Ravenclaw symboled horcrux!!! can you imagine finding it? just by talking to a sad ghost?)
and i like to remember that. because the reason why i entered the harry potter fandom was that i was acting like Luna. people recognized that and told me that i acted like her and that they wanted to be friends with me. we had a group and I was their Luna, while we had a Merlin, a Sirius, a Marlene, a Lily and all other types of character from different eras of the Harry Potter world. it was amazing. we were like a big fandom family. and i miss everyone of them.
did you get popcorn for that, rose? if you did, i’d like to apologize, because it wasn’t as great as i thought it was. there are so many memories in my head and so little words to describe how it was that i don’t even know how to write that down. i’m sorry if i disappointed you. here, lemme have some of that popcorn you. i like it buttery. do you like it buttery too?
do dogs ever just wanna chill? like do u think they go for walks just bc we look so excited? are they doing this all for us?
listen i’m not saying that they’re definitely doing this for us,,,but they’re definitely doing this for us; they’d meet in the park and be like ‘yo dude wassup’ and the other ‘oh you know, the usual; taking my human out for a walk, they looked like they needed to do the π business’
Clint sighed, the brush twirling carelessly between his fingers. Most of the time he liked his job, he really did. Being the makeup artist on sets of actors and models, making them gorgeous enough to be worshiped, flirting casually with some of the biggest names in society, definitely had its perks.
Today, though… Today was the special kind of hell that made him question if the others had been a hallucination. He’d been hired out for a men’s fashion magazine shoot. Men were even more particular about their makeup, because unlike women who were going for a certain look or effect, men wanted all the benefits of makeup without actually looking like they were wearing any at all. Today there had been a steady stream of haughty men who had either not spoken a word to him, or done so only to tell him what a terrible job he was doing.
And the very last model he was supposed to work on before he could get paid, pack up, and go home, was late.
