Can you seriously imagine what the Annunciation must have been like, with the Good Omens version of Gabriel? To quote savage Luke 1:28-38:
28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. Greetings, fortunate human. We’ve been watching you. You are one infinitely lucky mortal.
29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. Stop screaming. Just, just stop screaming. Look, the Almighty has smiled on you. Well, they would if they actually had a face. Which they currently don’t. Isn’t that nice? Please, will you stop screaming already?
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. Okay, so I’ll get right to the point; you will do that strange thing that female bodied creatures do where you grow another tiny human in your stomach, and that tiny human will be male bodied, and when you squeeze that tiny male bodied human into the world you shall call him Jesus.
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: He shall be great, and shall be called Son of the Highest, and our boss will give to him the throne of David. Even though he will not actually be biologically descended from David. Since you aren’t, even if the male you are soon going to make a life bond with is. That is how you mortals do these inheritance things, right? With the bloodlines and the DNA? Wait, you don’t know about DNA yet.
33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Or at least until the end of the world. Although that’s not due for a while, so no need to fret.
34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: Glad you decided to join the conversation. To answer that: not my department.
“There was one time where Michael Gambon and Alan Rickman - and I think [the director] was kind of co-ordinating it - um, took the opportunity to uh, play a practical joke on me […] They had put a fart machine into my sleeping bag.” - Daniel Radcliffe [x]
I know that he played a lot of great characters… but prof. Snape is my favorite. And his words are much more than just words. R.I.P. Alan Rickman We’ll remember you,,, - After all these years? - Always
Alan Rickman as Severus Snape in Harry Potter / concerned
I love how Snape puts his hand on Dumbledore’s back in such a concerned manner. Then my brain turns it into something silly. ;)
Fudge: Keep everybody in their seats! A boy’s just been killed! Snape: All right. Wait, what?! *runs to scene* OH NO! ALBUS, IS HARRY OKAY?! *sees that Harry’s alive & composes self* I mean, um, oops, I tripped. *hair flip* Whatever.
