HANK. Last week you were in my cab. NOW YOU ARE A BUS. I mean YOU ARE A BUS. You are the whole bus! I can’t take this! I’m on 77th St and Lex. Do you KNOW what a good bus route that is for the SciShow demo and spreading it further???? I mean, they all are. IT’S NEW YORK. But someone is doing something right.
Ponderously traveling the upper east side. That’s Hank.
What the eff is Hank? Hank is a bus. Excellent transfiguration skills. If I see you as a building next I just don’t know what.
Actual Crossdressing Drama Heroine Emma Edmonds, oh my God, I’ve never encountered a historical individual whose life aligns
so exactly with every single trope of romantic cross-dressing fiction.

connected with him. Hard to name.” - ‘something WEIRD is definitely UP with my STRANGELY LOVABLE BRO … but WHAT??’ - “I arose greatly refreshed after a good sound sleep on a couch with my friend Frank Thompson” I’M SURE

“But when word swept the campsite and stadium that a certain gang of infamous wizards (no longer the fresh-faced teenagers they were in their heyday, but nevertheless recognisable) had arrived for the final, excitement was beyond anything yet seen. As the crowd stampeded, tents were flattened and small children mown down. Fans from all corners of the globe stormed towards the area where members of Dumbledore’s Army were rumoured to have been sighted, desperate above all else for a glimpse of the man they still call the Chosen One…”
