its all about harry

Hogwarts headcanon time:

Everyone seems to think that all the hidden corridors and moving staircases are intentional, because the founders were a bit insane (which is true). But what if most of it wasn’t intentional? What if it’s the cumulative result of generations of young witches and wizards learning magic and all the stray magic floating about?

Like, what if that one stair poor Neville keeps getting stuck in was the result of someone trying to pull a prank on their friend in 1824 and no one could figure out a counter curse? Or the moving staircases were the result of too many jinxes and missed spells and no one really knows why they move or when they started (but Hermione did find the first recorded instance of a moving staircase in 1532 in Hogwarts, a History)

I feel like all those quirks in the castle are much more the result of the school just being so saturated with magic and mischief that it’ll never be a remotely normal building again.

I have recently become utterly smitten with the Society of Gentlemen book series by KJ Charles. The book covers are so disappointing and bland and do not do these characters justice AT ALL so I needed to draw the boys myself.


If you like Regency-era stories about gentlemen who like other gentlemen then you should check this series out; it’s got some lovely romance and friendships and supporting-each-other-through-hardship and era politics and scandal and drama and pining.  Not to mention bi and demi and trans characters, and none of the conflicts revolve around anyone being ashamed of their sexuality. Oh, and they all have HAPPY ENDINGS! Also people actually communicate and it avoids so many stupid misunderstandings that are so common in love stories. 

(Basically everything I’ve ever wanted in historical romance and more)

happy birthday, Harry

its just funny how louis and harry always have some type of connection in the things they do even tho they are supposed to hate eachother or whatever like its never liam, niall or zayn nah its always larry. harry hangs with dua, louis follows her, she follows him back, louis follows some guy who gets “hacked” and its all about larry, louis follows the weeknd and the weeknd follows harry, etc.

I don’t think one can really articulate their thoughts on life through writing, but I’ve been asked to try, so here it goes. I think we’re all connected. Maybe not in a way that makes much sense, but I don’t think anyone is ever truly alone. You, reading this, are not alone. We may never meet, I may never be more than a character in a story to you, but that doesn’t matter. I think that when we pour a little bit of ourselves into paper and ink, those stories pour a bit of themselves back into us, too, and that makes us closer than you can imagine. Life is strange and difficult. You’ll sometimes feel completely lost. You’ll fall in love with the voices in your head. You’ll look in all the right places at all the wrong times for something that you think will make you happy. You’ll be forced to go through so much pain. But just know that, through it all, you are not alone. I’m with you, the character in the story that you poured a bit of yourself into when you took the time to read. I’m with you.

You are loved, you are loved, you are loved.

Hauntingly, Ch. 49

This is so beautiful.

(Maybe we can never completely separate fictional characters from our own perspective and understanding—can we ever separate anything from that, really?—and they may not really reciprocate what we feel about them (be it love or hate), but that feeling itself is enough to change us. The more we pour our life, our time, our perception, our love and hate into the characters, the more we feel about them, then the more we are different from our past selves who had not poured and had not felt. And who knows, maybe that will lead to other changes. Maybe we’ll one day feel differently towards another incident, or make a different decision, because of what we’ve read and felt before? The characters are with us and we are not alone. I feel very blessed, or loved, to have met the characters I love.)

It’s About Firsts -- It’s About Balance Part 003

This is it. The finale. It was difficult – albeit a different kind of difficult than The Tipping Point – to get through, but it’s here at last. It’s the longest of all the parts in a sequence that wasn’t supposed to last beyond a one shot (and yes, it is well and truly finished save for blurbs and dribbles inspired  by this sandbox).  Thank you to every single one of you who has read any of the predecessors and for liking my 1.30am brainchild. You’ve been wonderful in more ways than you know, and I hope this ties things up nicely, because you deserve that. Thanks to @inkedferns for letting me whine about this all night long. Particular thanks to the Teenage Dirtbag performance in This Is Us, without whom the whole sequence never would have been inspired. ;) x. 


Part 001     
Part 002

The first time you really know you’ve grown attached to him is when he leaves for promotion with the rest of the boys. You’d teased him by moaning with relief about finally, finally having time to yourself without having some punk kid in your bed hogging all the blankets and throwing his hot, furnace of a body all over yours.

“You’ll miss me when you have no one to split a butty with at three in the morning,” he’d winked at you as he rolled up a t-shirt to stuff it into his duffle bag.

You simply scoffed and flopped down on your stomach onto his bed – because he had bought a place, finally – and threw a stray sock at him in protest.

Just realized in order of the phoenix (movie atleast, I forgot about the books) that umbridge says something around the lines that students should be taught in order to get through their examinations and now I’m just thinking about the fact that that’s how school systems are now; they don’t teach so that you learn a subject, they teach so that you can pass a test

And I see war on the screen
And it is cruel and unclean

There are 3 rules I follow for the booklr community;

1. Be respectful 
2. Be nice
3. Read whatever you want

What’s with all the sudden onslaught of bitterness on here?
