let’s all take a moment to appreciate how well “that’s what she said” and “phrasing” have aged compared to “giggity.” many of us would probably still laugh at a well-placed “that’s what she said” even after all these years, but if you met someone who responded to a sexual innuendo by saying “giggity” you would almost certainly feel such deep shame and embarrassment on their behalf that both of you would lose the ability to speak for the rest of your lives
it’s weird how bland the weasleys’ names are compared other ones in the hp universe. wilhelmina grubby-plank, anyone? look at the whole damn black clan – regulus, phineas nigellus, narcissa. it is a parade of anomalous names. gellert, fenrir, merope.
and then the weasleys go with… bill, charlie, fred, george. and i am convinced that this is because arthur thought common muggle names were chic and possibly more convenient when he takes his sprogs shopping at tescos for spark plugs
People hating on Daryl because he’s gone, so called, cold?
Did you all forget he was humiliated by being stripped naked and kept prisoner in a dark and cold room, beaten, forced to listen to one song on repeat for hours on end, and was fed nothing but dog food?…… You’re lying if you say you would handle the Saviors differently if you were in Daryl’s shoes, having experienced the torture he has✋
I’m five years late but this absolutely destroyed me. The whole season Betty was so careful expressing her love for Kate, one small daring step at a time. Kate kept responding positively, which made Betty only fall deeper and believe her feelings were mutual.
Except, Kate had been sheltered her entire life and obliviously thinks this is how friendship between women is expressed. Not picking up on the underlying implications and signals she’s giving to Betty and Betty gives her in return.
Even before it all comes crashing down, Betty makes absolutely sure there’s no other reading. Kate rubs her shoulders and Betty takes her hand, kisses it and confesses her love verbally. Only when Kate tells her “she really likes her too” Betty goes in for a kiss.
And that’s the moment everything Betty thought was possible - getting the girl - was all in her head. But it’s not just a rejection of her affections, it’s a rejection of who she is.
