2. Gryffindor seventh years setting up an extensive race track around the Hogwarts grounds and using it for irl Mario Kart complete with blue shells charmed to follow the person in first, and pots of ink to impair your rival’s vision
It all went fine until one second year dared them to recreate rainbow road.
57. Despite assumptions that all ravenclaws are obsessed with school work, many are in fact extremely prone to procrastination, so they go and hang with the slytherins in their common room to avoid their responsibilities
Joanne “Jo” Rowling is turning 50 today (Harry’s 35?). Thanks to many amazing things she’s done with her years on Earth, I’m sure that we, her fans, can all easily list 50 reasons why we’re grateful for her existence. But I won’t do that because Time had 17 cooler people write her a little something for her birthday (including Rupert Grint, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Wright, Robbie Coltrane and many other awesome peeps, so grab some tissues and click the link).
You can feel the love reading the messages and I believe that says a lot about what an amazing and extraordinary person Jo is. The birthday notes show people feeling perfectly comfortable to have a laugh with her (and Mark Williams says she “has one of the best laughs”). They reveal people clearly inspired by Jo as a person and certainly moved by her stories and the way she sees the world and human beings. They show people believe they can count on her friendship. And it’s not surprising at all if you’ve been following this woman for over a decade.
When the Harry Potter saga was coming to an end, we were all overwhelmed and words failed to express the magnitude of our experience. So we often simply went with “thank you, Jo” and hoped she would understand. Now that I think of it, I think we might as well also say “thank you, Harry”. Thanks for introducing us to this beautiful mind and gigantic heart <3.
They have stressed that it’s not the who that is important but it’s the why, which makes me think whoever they picked to be A will be not that exciting. But they have made this huge deal on the ‘why’, and so far i’m not sold. The fact that they think that one episode will be able to explain the why is beyond me and makes me think that it will be a bit of a let down. They have claimed to have had this story in the works for a couple years but from the dropped story lines of other characters, and 500000 other plot holes I think other wise. I hope they can surprise us but honestly they had so long to tell this story and they have waisted it with so many filler episodes!
