no you don't support them then

you don’t even understand how emotional I am over 5:14 (Last Page) rn. i’m looking at the lyrics and they are so thoughtful and profound i’m crying. in the lyrics they were talking about having trouble sleeping and they’re worried about what their end will look like and perhaps they won’t have the obvious ending but they hope its a happy one and that they might go through pain and hurt but they hope that we can get through it together so we can finally sleep???? 

and one line literally was like “after putting the stage behind we talk about all the things we’ve lacked” and that they end up talking about yesterdays and suddenly it’s 5:14 in the morning but they’re smiling because they’re still dreaming the same dream as they were when they debuted. like guys i’m CRYING

and the fact that they helped write this makes me really emotional because they know they haven’t had it easy but are really hoping we’ll still stay by their side.

I’m a feminist because...

I’m a feminist because everyone should be.

Growing up, my parents would always tell me to be properly dressed around my brothers. Never mind that they were walking around in short boxer briefs, it was me who had to be presentable. I was the girl, after all.

In school, I was always taught that the way I dressed affected a boy’s education. I was taught that the slight peek of my shoulder was enough to get me sent to the head office. It was much too distracting, because after all, a boy’s education had to be more important than a girl’s. At least, that was what they were teaching me.

This is why I’m a feminist.

I’m a feminist because it is 2017, and when I talk about how unfair it is that a professional athlete gets to walk away from the accusation of raping a girl without a single ding to their career, I’m some sort of radical that needs to calm down. Because that poor girl’s life will never be the same, but said athlete’s career is perfectly intact.

I’m a feminist because my aunt says things like, “Oh, those feminists, they just need to shave their armpits and get over it.” Because somehow the grooming of my body hair has everything to do with the rights I’m fighting for.

I’m a feminist because people still think you must have a vagina to be considered a woman.

I’m a feminist because I am 20 years old, and when I tell people I’m not sure I want to have kids, they look at me like I just defied all womankind.

I’m a feminist because when mothers choose to work rather than stay at home with their children, they aren’t doing “enough.”

I’m a feminist because when fathers choose to stay at home with their children rather than work, they somehow aren’t as “manly.”

I’m a feminist because parents still won’t let their sons play with Barbies.

I’m a feminist because young boys are taught that crying is bad. Showing emotion is bad, better to bottle it up and never feel. If you cry, you’re a girl, and no one wants to be a girl.

I’m a feminist because when my family talks about the Women’s March that happened yesterday, they say things like, “What’s protesting going to change?” and “They’re honestly just wasting their time. Nobody’s going to listen to them.” Never mind that the country we are living in found its freedom through protesting—No Taxation Without Representation. But I suppose that’s okay. It was men protesting then.

I’m a feminist because when my aunt saw a picture of a man marching with women yesterday, she snorted and said, “What’s he doing there? Doesn’t he have something better to do?” Her seven year old son was sitting next to her.

I’m a feminist because a highly qualified politician lost the presidential election to a less than mediocre businessman who based his campaign on misogyny, racism, bigotry, and slander. Because this country would rather see an over privileged, racist, homophobic, white man, whose years of experience sums up to zero, in office rather than a woman whose qualifications are more than his will ever be. Because I somehow have to have years of experience before I can even get my first job, but Donald Trump can get sworn into office without a single day of political experience.

I’m a feminist because the President of the United States speaks vilely of women and all minorities, and I’m the terrible one for disliking him.

I’m a feminist because I get made fun of for being a feminist.

I’m a feminist because I want the next generation of girls to live in a better world than mine.

I’m a feminist for these reasons and so many others.

I’m a feminist because everyone should be.

I am probably going to regret saying this…

but in light of all the nastiness against those “making it about Larry,” I would like to respectfully point out that when a long time partner’s parent dies, you are intimately, intricately involved. you are their support system. you are their sounding board. you are the person who holds them when they cry. you are the person who tries to take care of everything so that your partner can spend time grieving with their family. and if you knew your partner’s parent well, you are also grieving for them too.

commenting about Harry looking sad, isn’t making this about Larry. it’s acknowledging that hey, it’s probably pretty shitty for Harry too. he’s devastated for Jay’s loss, and for Louis’ loss, and is doing everything he can to be a support to the family and to his partner. that isn’t “making it about Larry” that is acknowledging the emotional burden that a partner willingly takes on when something horrible like this happens.

Okay Tumblr, 

time for yall to shut the fuck up about the lack of diversity in mainstream shows and support the shit out of the shows that are doing it right rather than spitting venom about all the crap that’s never going to change.

Start here:

  • The Get Down (you complained about it, so they literally made a show that fits your criteria. Watch it if you want more)
  • Brooklyn 99 (actually hilarious without being offensive)
  • Pitch (fictitious first woman in MBL)
  • Luke Cage (bulletproof black guy hero)

Let’s make this a complete list.

Don’t just be a fucker or White Feminist™ or entitled sea cucumber. If all you watch is Sherlock, OUAT, AOS and Supernatural don’t fucking complain about diversity.

Even if the days seem as dark as the nights, let’s stay together, shining through the clouds so we can give hope as bright stars in the sky.

also, i dont like donald trump but don’t come after barron trump. hes a child and hes innocent. you dont get to chose who your parents are. drag his adult children all you want, drag donald but leave barron trump alone. be better than trump’s supporters. yes, i know some of these people calling to protect barron are the same people who likely came after the obama girls, but that doesn’t change the fact that barron is innocent and you are BETTER than them. don’t be like them.

Hi hi, I just wanted to say that your art of Keith made me fall in love and I haven't even seen Voltron yet but just your rendition of him and the way you draw him and portray him made him my favourite, so thank you :) Stay awesome! ♥

Founding The Percival Graves Auror Squad

Hello. Like you, I watched the movie Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them and I adored Colin Farrell’s performance as the formidable wizard Percival Graves. I felt that he was a dangerous (though alluring) person at best and a Grindelwald supporter at worst. I did not, however, expect the the twist that he was actually Gellert Grindelwald in disguise.

It has been confirmed that Grindelwald used polyjuice potion for this.

For polyjuice potion he needed a part of Percival Graves. Hairs would have been easiest.

Transformation by polyjuice potion lasts one hour. It has to be refreshed permanently over the day.

From what the movie tells us, Grindelwald started the impersonation in 1926, earlier in the same year Newt Scamander arrived in New York.

That makes it months at worst and days at best. Still makes it a large amount of fresh hair you need.

Gellert Grindelwald needed Percival Graves for his hair and presumably his memories to impersonate him accordingly - something he must have pulled of astoundingly well since nobody in the ministry noticed anything amiss.

This leads to one conclusion: The probability that Percival Graves was kept alive is very, very high.

Yet this point was not resolved at the end of the movie.

Percival Graves is imprisoned somewhere in New York, bound, restrained, kept, most likely injured from copious amounts of torture.

From what can be gathered from the movie and additional sources, Percival Graves is a formidable wizard, the head of the MACUSA’s DMLE, an asset to wizardkind and an interesting character.

Percival Graves deserves better.

Percival Graves deserves to be saved.

Nobody of the film crew seemed to think of that.

But we insisted immediately.

Percival Graves does not need a Defense Squad.

But Percival Graves needs support.

This is why I am founding hereby the Percival Graves’ Auror Squad.

His aurors who are relentlessly searching for his whereabouts.

Because Percival Graves deserves if not a recurring large supportive role, at least closure for his own story ark.

Percival Graves deserves to be rescued.

Johnny Depp won the People’s Choice Award for Favourite Movie Icon and I honestly couldn’t be happier for him.

A few nights ago I was asked whether I still supported Johnny Depp (x) and I danced around the question a little until in the end I just wrote how talented he truly was, but I still didn’t say whether I still supported him or not. 

I won’t go into his and Amber Heard’s relationship, I don’t know the ins and outs of it because I don’t know them personally and reading the stories online isn’t really solid proof is it? Whatever has happened between them is in their past, they are now both happy (and might I say Johnny is looking much better now, that also makes me happy) and they have moved on from it and now so should everyone else. Respect them both for their work and talent, because that’s what you are able to see.

Now, Johnny Depp winning Favourite Movie ICON is living proof that his talent is flawless and endless, people still look up to him and he still has an incredible fandom! He deserves this award more then anyone. From my darling Mrs. Lovett, those Londoners and me, well done to him! *applause*

And lastly, to answer that dear anons question: Yes, I stick by him as an actor, as a rockstar and as a person. I am with you Johnny Depp.

I have something I must ask you. Because I really like you, we build a farm together, have a baby, and want to live as ordinary citizens, would you want to live with me?

J.K.Rowling on Dumbledore

“You will see Dumbledore as a younger man, and quite a troubled man. Because he wasn’t always the sage. He was always very clever and we will see him, what I think an affirmative period of his life.“

J.K. Rowling (people interview, 2016)

I wonder where have I heard this before……

OH…..ooooh…..
