“I have to struggle to change people’s perceptions of me. I grew very frustrated with the perception that I’m this shy, retiring, inhibited aristocratic creature when I’m absolutely not like that at all. I think I’m much more outgoing and exuberant than my image.“

A list of some of my favorite dramione moments from the books:

  • She had slapped Malfoy across the face with all the strength she could muster. Malfoy staggered. Harry, Ron, Crabbe, and Goyle stood flabbergasted as Hermione raised her hand again. “Don’t you dare call Hagrid pathetic, you foul — you evil –“  - Prisoner of Azkaban
  • “I don’t believe it!” Hermione wailed. “Was Professor Flitwick angry? Oh, it was Malfoy, I was thinking about him and I lost track of things!”  - Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Hermione’s hand shot into the air.  Behind her back, Malfoy did a buck-toothed imitation of her jumping up and down in eagerness to answer a question.  - Order of the Phoenix 
  • You think he’ll be all right?” said Hermione nervously. “Course he will. Madam Pomfrey can mend cuts in about a second,” said Harry, who had had far worse injuries mended magically by the nurse.  - Prisoner of Azkaban
  • “Malfoy?” said Hermione, very skeptically.  “Well.. yes.. maybe..” And she remained deep in thought all the way into the outskirts of Hogsmeade. - Order of the Phoenix
  • Wise move, Granger,” breathed Malfoy.  - Order of the Phoenix
  • The door of the compartment slid open.“Very clever Granger,” said Draco Malfoy. - Goblet of Fire
  • Pansy Parkinson gaped at her as she walked by with Malfoy, and even he didn’t seem to be able to find an insult to throw at her. - Goblet of Fire

↳ “a man appeared and stood fast against that selfish me. and i was saved…by that person i called my “enemy.” no matter how desperate the situation, instead of giving up like most people, that man would hold strong with his undying faith. and then, before i knew it…i began to trust in that man as well.”

@lemedy just reminded me that we could’ve had actual Ace Attorney merchandise, so much merchandise, if the anime hadn’t been so crap, and my anger at today (which had already been much given the perpetual-anger-machine that is the dystopia of the US of A right now) has now increased EXPONENTIALLY.

Indigenous Peoples' Day Gains Momentum As A Replacement For Columbus Day
Denver, where Columbus Day was first celebrated about 100 years ago, now permanently recognizes Indigenous Peoples' Day.

The state of Vermont and the city of Phoenix have joined the list of places that now call the second Monday in October Indigenous Peoples’ Day, in a show of momentum for honoring indigenous people on the federal holiday that’s named for Christopher Columbus.

Phoenix is now the largest U.S. city to recognize Indigenous Peoples’ Day, according to member station KJZZ, which says the move came on a unanimous vote. Other cities have adopted similar laws in recent years, from Seattle to Minneapolis.

The city council of Denver, which observed Indigenous Peoples’ Day last year under a temporary proclamation, embraced a permanent observance this week — a development that’s particularly striking because Denver is where the idea for a holiday honoring Christopher Columbus first took root.

Read under the cut or on AO3

Also the line about Miles being “on edge” was an intended pun rip me
