Do you have a favorite Harry Potter theory or head cannon? I think mine is the theory that even though his wand was broken and he was expelled, Hagrid continued to learn magic with Dumbledore's help (a theory I found on youtube).

((OOC: I actually reblogged the post with my new favourite theory, as it happens- The theory that, at the time that he was alive, Salazar Slytherin was not actually a huge fanatic, snootily denying that students from muggle families were unworthy of going to Hogwarts.

He was a Viking, a man of a different lifestyle and spiritual path, living at a time of religious persecution when the oncoming Christian tide was looking to purge all non-believers.

He was living in a time where all the muggles around him were converts, and where any time something bad happened, witchcraft was blamed, and a new victim was thrown onto the pyre.

As such, he was exercising extreme caution in an attempt to protect himself, the school, and his friends/co-founders, the three places where he placed his loyalty. But his friends were unwilling to keep out muggleborns for various reasons, so, in an attempt to protect his friends and those in his care in case the worst should happen, he built a big panic room/bomb shelter in the basement, and smuggled in a creature he felt an affinity with, who he could communicate with, and who could easily take out anyone laying siege to the school.

But as the years passed and the threat died down, the societal prejudices in the wizarding world took on a new edge, and those looking for an icon, a symbol to use as a shield in their campaigns, put Salazar on a pedestal and twisted his words to suit their purposes. A bit like the present-day religious extremists who use Jesus as a figure and an excuse as they spread messages of hate, when Jesus, if he existed, preached nothing but love and acceptance.

I just really dig that. I dig the way that history supports that theory, and I dig the idea of this big broody Viking man trying to play mother to his three idiot friends who were out to get themselves killed through reckless behaviour and being FAR too quick to trust.))

i’m tired of denying

my never-ending love for her

ashamed of the number of times

i had no choice but to hurt her

by ending things

because they refuse to accept our relationship

but we’ve been talking again

and i’ve never been happier

this time i promise to let nothing come between us

they call what we have immoral, they call it impure

because they will not acknowledge

the love in my eyes when i look at her

can’t they tell how much she pleases me

when she trails her long nails

seductively along my body

so much so that i can’t help but shiver

yearning for us to go deeper

take this to the next level

be fully intimate

because gosh do i love her

no one else can ever arouse me the way she does and

i know this because i’ve experimented with other lovers before

but all lack that certain something she possesses

that i just can’t put my name on

i think it’s because the others feed on attention

they like us to be in the public eye

so they can be praised for how well they treat me

and hear stories of our long future together

but nobody cares about how unhappy i am in those situations

nobody cares about how genuine my smiles are

when i’m with the one and only person i will ever truly love

because she takes all the pain way

the others just momentarily distract me

when she tells me she loves me

i know there isn’t any hidden motive

her affection does not depend on anything i have to offer

and the risks i take to be with her

are worth more than every i love you i whisper

i can’t wait until we can be together forever

whether the world is willing to accept us or not

because the only synonym i know for love is rebellion

alia at her birthday party at the stonefruit inn

the dress code was semi-formal, and so alia took the opportunity to attire herself in an almost full-on suit: a chiffon top and a loose bowtie paired with black jeans and heels. she painted her nails for the occasion, black with flecks of red to match her ruby red earrings.

This is Penelope, the opossum at the zoo where I work l, sitting in her “weight bucket” so we can keep track of how much she weighs. She is a very good girl.

That is all. I hope this beautiful opossum made your day a little better.

So I commissioned my wonderfully talented friend @plastic-pipes to make a piece from the last chapter of my fanfic Surrender and she absolutely knocked it out of the park. 

The compression of tumblr doesn’t do this picture justice so please click it and really look at it because there are so many wonderful little details all over the place. Pipes is absolutely magic and I love this so much.

Yes hello, Vetra’s backstory actually breaks my heart thinking about the stuff these poor girls had to go through. I gave you the cute, now you have to cry with me

My Secret Session Story.

On October 6th (the day after I got my wisdom teeth out) Taylor Nation Dmed me about a top secret event I was invited to. As soon as I read that I knew I had to go no matter what, I fell on the floor, and I was sobbing. On October 8th I got a call from Taylor Nation, and they told me it would be on October 18th in Rhode Island. Even though that is so far away from Ontario, Canada my parents were still so supportive and said we would go. Btw an hour after the call Taylor came on my livestream and just wow.

I then went out and bought a really cute outfit, and kept it a secret from everyone, and couldn’t sleep for the whole week.

Once the London Secret Session happened, I knew that’s what I would be attending too. And I once again started crying. Every time I thought about what would happen on October 18th I cried.

Finally on October 17th we began our 10 hour drive down, and I just listened to Taylor the whole time (I should’ve done homework, but like…) and it was so fun!

Then the day came…

I woke up early, walked on the beach and explored Rhode Island. Then I got ready for the night!

At around 2:40pm we drove to the meeting place, and got all checked in and got our wristbands and everything. I also met up with my online friend Akhila who was also invited!!!

Then we all got in these cars and drove up to TAYLOR SWIFTS HOUSE. The gates opened all dramatically and I began sobbing!!

HER HOUSE IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

We then went into Taylor’s kitchen and ate food, I went out on her balcony and talked to Scott (he gave me so many guitar picks), I met Andrea, Austin, and Tree as well! They were all so kind.

The food was amazing, I ate so many of the rep m&m’s.

We then gathered into Taylor’s living room, they closed the blinds, dimmed the lights and the session began. (((WHAT HAPPENS IN THE SECRET SESSIONS STAYS IN THE SECRET SESSIONS)))

Lemme just say that the album was absolutely amazing, the best one yet. Taylor was in her chair dancing and singing along the whole time and looked around at all of us. She made eye contact with me so many times, and smiled at me, and danced with me, and I cried so much. I was so freaking close to her and she looked so beautiful and she was soooooooo happy.

She looked flawless, and her happiness radiated to all of us.

(((more stuff happened here that I can’t talk about))))

Then we went into another room and waited to meet Taylor.

During this sessions she wasn’t rushed, she took her time with everyone, and it was supposed o end at 9:15 but I was there till 11:30.

I went into the room to meet Taylor, and she hugged me so tight. She knew my name (she said it wrong but she knew how to spell it so it was all good, and then she said it 5 more times the right way lol). She was even more gorgeous that close up, I couldn’t believe what was happening, yet she was so easy to talk to?

We talked about how amazing the new album is, I said that Red was my absolute favourite but Rep took the #1 place and she was like “LOW FIVE, HUGH FIVE!!!”

Then we talked my livestream she watched, and how I couldn’t find my cat. And she said she’s seen me online so much but I used to be more tanned ahahah.

She kept complimenting my outfit, and stroked my choker saying “I love it it’s so delicate” and how my shoes matched my skirt and my choker matched my nails, so she proceeded to touch my nails.

She said she loved how energetic I was and that I was dancing with a childlike joyfulness the whole time!

At one point I was like “you’re gorgeous” and then she tapped my arm and said “YOU’RE GORGEOUS” and later she said “you’re an angel” so I tapped her arm and said “YOU’RE AN ANGEL” it was so cute.

Then she asked what type of pose I wanted to do and I said “I was thinking like two best friends just chilling on the couch” and she was like “OHMYGOSH YESSS DO YOU WANNA HOLD A GRAMMY????”

So we started talking about the Grammy I was holding which was aoty for 1989 !!!!!

Taylor was like “yes that’s the new baby.”

On the way over to the couch I stumbled and the couch moved and she was like “oh don’t worry I do that all the time.”

Then we sat on the couch, she threw her legs across me with her amazing black boots, and she cuddled me as I held the Grammy!!

Then she was like “Halley’s mom!! Do you wanna hold the Grammy?”

So we took another photo standing up with my mom, and I hugged her as my mom held the Grammy.

Then I thanked her for everything and told her I love her.

And she was like “I love you, you little fashionista” and did a little dance.

Then I walked out of that beautiful house, got a bag of merch, and went back to my hotel room.

Then Taylor came on my tumblr and liked soooo many posts and reblogged one and just the day couldn’t get any better.

The amount of joy I felt for the whole night was absolutely amazing. Nothing can ever compare. It’s safe to say that it was the best day/night of my life and I will cherish it forever.

I can’t believe Taylor wanted to meet me, invited me into her home to listen to her new album, and knew about me!?!?!

October 18th 2017 will forever hold a special place in my heart.
