PSA to all my followers and everyone else

I’m sorry to be annoying about this, but it is important.

DO NOT TAKE SOMEONE’S CREATION (graphic, art, writing, etc.) AND REPOST IT ANYWHERE ELSE, ESPECIALLY WITHOUT CREDIT.

This rant is particularly aimed to graphics. Graphic makers work on something and choose to post them somewhere, say here on Tumblr. Even if we add a watermark so it’d be recognizable anywhere else, we do not appreciate our work taken a screenshot of or taken and reposted. It’s not fair. Why should you get recognition for a nice graphic we did?

That said, DO NOT USE SITES LIKE WEHEARTIT, where people repost stuff and, unlike Pinterest, the original source link is deleted (at least that’s what I saw). Most importantly, DO NOT TAKE SOMETHING FROM WEHEARTIT AND REPOST IT ON TUMBLR.

I can report my reposted content here on Tumblr, but getting it down from WeHeartIt is hard, since you: a) have to join the site b) can’t contact the user c) there are no ‘reposted content’ category, only one for copyright holders that is extremely inadequate and bothersome. So you are only encouraging theft by using the site and liking stolen posts—even more if you choose to repost that image like it’s no biggie.

Please, respect people’s work of any kind. You’re not a stupid person for not being able to write, draw or make a graphic… but you are a goddamn piece of garbage for reposting stuff you know you’re not supposed to and claiming it as yours. Even more if the owner of said stuff asks you to delete it and you don’t (like just happened to me).

Destroy the mentality that just because it’s not a physical thing and it’s on the internet, it’s up for grabs and doesn’t count as theft.

I had a friend who says she doesn’t ship Romione because she doesn’t think that Ron appreciated her enough and doesn’t deserve her.
I don’t know what books you were reading, but they weren’t the same ones I read.

Ron Weasley offered the stranger sitting next to him on the train half his sandwich, even though it was all he had.

Ron Weasley sacrificed himself for the good of Harry and Hermione at age eleven, because even then he thought they were more important than he was, and the ones worth saving.

Ron Weasley was Harry Potter’s first friend, and the first thing Harry ever had resembling a family. 

Ron Weasley lived in a cramped house, and wore hand me down robes, and he didn’t even think twice about offering his room and food and family to Harry every break, he offered him every thing he could and gave him everything he had.

Ron Weasley took care of Harry Potter and Hermione Granger when they were too busy taking care of the rest of the world to worry about themselves. 

Ron Weasley stood on broken bones when he was thirteen years old, to tell a man infamous for murder that if he planned on killing his best mate, he would have to go through him first.

Ron Weasley was the person Harry would miss most in the world.

Ron Weasley was a pureblood wizard who, from a very young age, devoted his life to abolishing blood status, even if he didn’t quite understand his own privilege. 

Ron Weasley’s greatest fears and insecurities were tied up in his two best friends seeing him the way he saw himself. They were tied up in the idea, imbedded deeply in Ron Weasley, that he was somehow inferior.  

Ron Weasley gave Dobby his own clothes and socks to be buried in, because he understood how important it would have been to him.

Ron Weasley thought about saving the house elves when everyone else forgot. 

If you don’t love Ron Weasley, The Boy Who Cared, I don’t know what books you read but they weren’t the same ones I did.

  • Ginny Weasley who lost her best friend in the world when he went to Hogwarts, and waited a year to join him, only to find she had been replaced by Harry Potter and the smart girl who smiled at Ron like he confused her a little bit.
  • Ginny Weasley who went through her first year alone except for her diary, which was a comfort at first and a horrific terror next.
  • Ginny Weasley who went through horrible unspeakable things when she was eleven and nobody noticed.
  • Ginny Weasley who carried a Horcrux for almost a year and managed to keep her head above the water despite the odds being stacked against her.

  • Ginny Weasley who had a chance to go to the Yule Ball with her hero and childhood crush, and went with Neville instead, because she saw the great in him before anybody else did, and wanted him to know he was worth it.
  • Ginny Weasley who defended Luna and liked her for the things that others didn’t.
  • Ginny Weasley who joined the D.A and fought even though she was a child, because it was the childrens war to fight.
  • Ginny Weasley who punched a fifth year Ravenclaw in the jaw when he started talking about Harry being a fraud, because she might be over him, but somebody needed to defend the boy who was trying to defend everybody else.
  • Ginny Weasley who loves all her brothers, but especially Fred and George, who make her laugh until she can’t breathe and take her seriously.
  • Ginny Weasley who loves having Hermione come and stay over the summer, because it’s like having a sister, and god, she wants a sister so bad.
  • Ginny Weasley who moved past her crush on Harry Potter and dated other boys while getting to know Harry and becoming his friend.
  • Ginny Weasley who was amazing at Quidditch and a total jock, and Harry might have been the captain, but she knew quite a bit more about strategy then he did.

  • Ginny Weasley who led the D.A in Harry’s absence with Neville by her side, because they might not have been chosen ones but they could choose their own paths and they chose fighting in the resistance.
  • Ginny Weasley who took the lashings and the burnt hands and horrible, horrible pain over telling where her brother and her friends were.

  • Ginny Weasley who built an army for her brothers, and for Sirius Black and for Tonks who deserved to have a baby in a world without Voldemort. For her mother who didn’t get that, and for the little girl who wrote on the walls in blood and doesn’t remember her first year of school.
  • Ginny Weasley who fights in the Final Battle and keeps fighting after Harry dies, because she knows him, and she sees something of him in everyone fighting and she is so furious, with these people who took her funny, lost, boy and snapped him in half, and she fights harder because he looks so fragile in Hagrids arms.
  • Ginny Weasley who felt the hollow aching loss of Fred in her chest for the rest of her life. 
  • Ginny Weasley who loves Quidditch and cries the happy-kind-of-tears for the first time after Fred dies when she finds out she made the Holy Head Harpies.
  • Ginny Weasley who falls back in love with Harry Potter. This time because he is broken and stitched back together in all the same ways she is, and they match in all the broken ways. 
  • Ginny Weasley who falls back in love with Harry Potter because they go together in all the good ways too, like how he makes her laugh in the mornings and the way she absent mindedly slides his glasses up his nose when they fall crooked.

In all honesty though, Harry and Hermione would not have lasted long enough to even think about defeating Voldemort without Ron Weasley there. 

Like, Hermione would disappear in the library for whole days and Ron would probably go in search for her and all but drag her to dinner because “You have to eat ‘Mione. Don’t forget to eat.” 

Ron spending his Winter Holidays with Harry instead of with his own family, because Harry needed him more. 

Ron giving Hermione a Weasley sweater because It’s colder out here than I thought it would be and the twins would tease him, while he insisted it wasn’t like that.

And Harry was constantly getting in scuffles with the Slytherins, so Ron, who’s Mum taught all her children household spells, would fix Harry up in their dorm room, so ‘Mione wouldn’t see and get angry. 

Hermione would catch the flu and Ron would take her to Madam Pomfrey, and lecture her gently on how if colds went untreated they could get worse, while Hermione rolls her eyes and she only has the sniffles Ron, it’s not the plague. Please find your chill.

When Harry would start to break,  Ron would get him blankets and sit up by the fire all night,  while Harry pretended nothing was wrong, despite the fact that he was literally always in mortal peril and his emotional state was always frayed.

I am a firm believer in the fact that Ron Weasley kept Harry Potter and Hermione Granger sane and fed and relatively healthy in those early years. 

Every time Harry was at Quidditch practice, learning shit with Dumbledore, learning shit with Snape, in detention, in the infirmary, held up by something to do with his fame, etc. Ron and Hermione were together. What do you think they were doing for 6 years in that time other than getting to know each other?

Hermione doesn’t seem to have any other friends besides the boys, and even though Ron could hang out with the boys from rest of the Gryffindor class of ‘98 (Seamus, Dean, Neville, etc.), whenever Harry resurfaces from where he’s been and seeks them out to tell them what he’s been up to, they’re almost always together waiting for him. y'all think they spent 6 years sitting in silence??
