  • Draco: [To Hermione] You want to know why I always treated you like that? Its fairly simple, actually. It's because, without your bravery in the face of all that's happened to you, without your constant scheming behind my back, without that fire of hatred and contempt and hope in your eyes when you look at me... In the shadow my father has cast over my entire life, you are the only light I can see anymore. And, whatever the cost, I refuse to let that light be extinguished.

honestly this post is beautiful

Hahahaa, I was just trying to capture the frustration of living in a relatively wealthy blue state. Like, I understand, politics these days is a horrorshow, and I have genuine, heart-stoppingly vivid sympathy for people who live in states whose topmost politicians routinely say horrifying shit denying the very humanity of some of their constituents. I really do. I really, truly do.

But Andrew Cuomo is an asshat, in the classic, old-school centrist New York Democrat kind of way, in a way that now seems so quaint. I mean, he’s a heartless bastion of mindless privilege, an absolute festering sump of pork-barrel patronage, a glad-handing media-hungry fop who’ll do anything for a soundbite and believes he’s basically God, on zero evidence.

I hate him, but if it were him or Trump, I’d knife-fight a furious weasel blindfold for him. At least he respects the office enough to turn up and at least make a show of it. And he’s, you know. Not actively a fascist. And probably not even currently engaged in treason. Who knew my standards would slip this low so quickly.

SEMI-HIATUS NOTICE

//Hey everyone, long time no speak ;w; things have been getting pretty crazy lately and I have nearly 10 RP blogs as is too. I gave it a lot of thought, and i’ve been stressing out trying to balance all my blogs (poorly) and real life stuff like job and careers.

For right now, I’m putting the blog on semi-hiatus while I pull myself together and spread myself less thin. It’s not a full hiatus, but a hiatus nonetheless.

From the bottom of my heart though, thank you to everyone who gave this blog a shot and RPed with me on it. If you do need to get into contact with me, I’m mostly found at @mayhemforhire​ and Skype will be available to longterm mutuals. I will be a bit picky though.

But yeah, I’ll see you all around, and thanks for being so understanding <3

That being said, Sly was originally be one of the blogs I would be keeping up with out of the 10 in like, a small batch, but that changed and my reason will be a bit negative and put under the thingie.

“Even in the darkest and most cruel person, there is a kernel of good. And within the most perfect champion, there is also darkness. The question is, will one give in to the dark or the light? It’s something we decide with every choice we make, every day that we exist.” (Falling Kingdoms)

PARALLELS HOly Shit magnus x cleo 

It is 2002.  My voice is small and I am shy and spend most of my time hiding behind my father.  My baby brother shadows my every step.  He is also shy, and small, and scared of most things.  To him, I am fearless.  I go to primary school and he waits for me on the kitchen floor until I get off the school bus.  It is 2016.  It is still this way.  He is twice my height but some parts of him are still shy and scared.  He confides in me while we sit on the floor of his bedroom and brags to his friends about his big sister at university.  To him, I am still fearless.  I hope he will always see me this way.
