there will never be another dh

anonymous asked:

hello!! Im a jikook shipper. I saw your post where you said you think jikook might be real. (: but i saw you mention another group you liked, and despite knowing that group, you never grew suspicion over a ship. i dont want to name the ship but i think you may know which one it is (two members who have been v close since before debut. discharged from the military a couple months ago.) I would subconsciously compare jikook to them sometimes bc idk... its so supicious djfks. wdy think??

Yes.. I know which ship you’re talking about. I’ll be honest.. with the EH/DH ship, I wouldn’t be surprised if they turned out real. But I’m 50-50 on that. Things I can’t deny about the ship is that they’re:

- tuned in to (mostly if not only) each other
- always together
- cute that he calls EH’s mum, “MUM”
- very touchy
- protective
- biased
- when they have beef, it’s obvious
- do get jealous
- always either complimenting each other or bickering
- they ship themselves

But with SJ I’m not so sure because they’ve always been very opaque in their fan service and could come of as either clingy best friends or well-established “some”. Maybe it’s because of how blatant they’re being that the ship is able to hide in plain sight. I’m looking at it from an extremely close friendship point of view. It can slide to either or. Though I don’t know how they are off camera. And their personalities are genuinely pretty loud with each other so I don’t know how they converse in private. It could be a relationship.. it could be a soulmate thing.. could be friendship.

But like.. the thing about Jikook that strikes me is that they had progression and at one point it felt like they were fighting against their feelings or summat? In the beginning they made it out like a joke but even through the joke the gazes are soft. And the touches that count are subtle. The intonation in their voices gradually evolved over time and the way they tilt their heads and kinda get lost in looking at each other is.. interesting? The fundamentals are quiet with punches of loudness a.k.a. Summer Package, GCF, etc

Touching includes things like combing hands through each other’s hair and having seemingly quiet mental breakdowns for certain reasons or during certain skin-ships. And mostly because a lot of the time it seems like JK/JM are dying to say something or are questioning half the shit they do. Like when JM “kissed” JK’s neck during the fan signing for supposed “fan service” and walked off to the side looking lost?

What I can’t deny about HH is that they love each other and they’re not your average relationship. They could be dating. It’s highly possible. I’m not exactly opposed. But Jikook is still at the top of my list of ships that made me go ????? It all boils down to body language.

LGBT Harry Potter Headcanons

Just because it’s Pride Month and I felt like sharing some of the things I’ve always thought!

  • Harry is bi. He is always describing men as handsome and his obsession with Draco Malfoy in HBP was definitely not just about wanting to find out what he was doing.
  • Ginny is pan. Her and Harry always talk to each other about the people they find attractive.
  • I always loved the idea of Ron being a trans boy. It adds another layer to his insecurities and gives the “you are not the daughter your mother wanted” line in DH so much more meaningful. It would definitely add so much more to his character growth throughout the series.
  • Hermione is heteroromantic asexual.
  • Tonks is genderfluid.
  • Remus Lupin is biromantic asexual.
  • Sirius Black is gay (especially for Remus Lupin).
  • Peter is aromantic asexual and is never treated as if he is broken.
  • Dean and Seamus were gay for each other. Don’t even deny it.
  • I have always loved the idea of Snape not being cis. Sometimes I love the idea of him being a trans man, or a tragic, closeted trans woman who always tried to express herself in secret but was never able to truly come out of the closet. I also love non-binary Snape! Either way Severus Snape has never been cisgender in my mind.
  • Draco Malfoy is a trans boy who transitioned at a super early age thanks to Snape, the family friend who gave him potions to spare him/her/them the pain of what they have been going through!
  • Charlie Weasley is an aromantic asexual.
  • Narcissa Malfoy is pan.
  • Lily Evans was bicurious and had a fling with Narcissa Black once.
  • Luna Lovegood is a panromantic asexual!
  • Moaning Myrtle was a trans girl, and that is why she was bullied so much and was in the girl’s bathroom for all of her death, to remind everyone that she is a girl and always will be.

Feel free to add to this if you want! Happy Pride Month!

Why do people act like Ron was the ONLY one in the trio that had bad friend moments? Hermione and Ron bickered and picked on one another all the time, plus she attacked him with birds. Harry screamed on both of them when he was frustrated and got into it with Ron in DH. Every one of them had bad friend moments. And all of them overcame them and still were friends. And yet, everyone singles Ron out. If you’re going to hate Ron for having bad friend moments, then hate them all for them. Stop singling him out like he was the big bad wolf and Harry and Hermione were saints that never did a thing wrong.

littleproudhufflepuff  asked:

Hi! I just came across your blog and I'm IN LOVE! I read your post about how Ron and Hermione's relationship developed, and you wrote, "During the final battle, they go off to the chamber together, and kiss in front of Harry, though it’s unknown whether this is actually their first kiss." Idk if you've already answered this, but I was wondering if this wasn't their first kiss, then when do you think it was?

So in all fairness, I could be completely wrong on this. JKR might come out and say that yes, she always intended for that to be their first kiss.

That said, in my opinion, Ron/Hermione passed the non-platonic point of no return in late HBP/early DH.

If you read their interactions in DH, the dynamic is different from that which we’ve seen in previous books. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never fallen asleep holding hands with a platonic friend.

Ron displays a protectiveness of Hermione beyond what we’ve seen from him in the past (pushing her down when the DEs attack in the cafe, offering himself up to be tortured in her place, making a beeline for her in Malfoy Manor, carrying her up to Shell Cottage). Both of them react very strongly when the snatchers target the other person.

They also appear to be more physically comfortable with one another (Holding hands, hugging, dancing at Bill’s wedding until Hermione “simply can’t dance anymore,” Ron wrapping his arm around Hermione to comfort her). And of course, I don’t know about you, but I’ve never fallen asleep holding hands with a platonic friend.

Neither Hermione nor Ron is great at bottling up their feelings, so it’s hard for me to believe that they spent the best part of a year in close quarters without ever having a conversation about their respective feelings or one another.

I think it’s far more likely that by early DH, they had established that there was a romantic attraction but mutually decided to put their relationship on the back burner for the sake of both the cause at hand and Harry himself.

I don’t think they were full-on making out every time Harry left to keep watch, but I do think that they probably had their first kiss some time in early DH.

If you want to get into head canon territory, I imagine it being in the middle of an argument (maybe at Grimmauld Place), and followed by about a week of awkwardness.

There was another noise behind them, and Harry turned. His heart seemed to fail: Ginny was now climbing through the hole in the wall, closely followed by Fred, George, and Lee Jordan. Ginny gave Harry a radiant smile: He had forgotten, or had never fully appreciated, how beautiful she was. ––Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Thanksgiving

I was talking to my mom on the phone over the weekend and saying that I don’t remember much about Thanksgiving last year. As I tried harder to recall it, I then remembered that Baby didn’t spend Thanksgiving with us. He did a five night overnight with his dad.

The Sunday before Baby came home, DH and I were FB stalking and realized Dad had broken up with his live-in girlfriend, and we literally didn’t know where Dad or Baby were. Dad was living in his girlfriend’s home so we assumed she kicked him out and that he had no place to go. Baby returned to us the following morning and was supposed to go back for another overnight that night. Dad canceled the overnight and then reached us by phone that night to ask us if we would adopt Baby because he just didn’t think he was capable of parenting.

Of course the roller coaster didn’t end there. Dad asked DH to drive out to his house an hour away and pick up all of Baby’s things because he just couldn’t look at them anymore. DH did. That was the weekend before Christmas. Two days later he called the worker and said he had changed his mind and didn’t want to terminate his rights. However, he literally never showed up for another meeting, visitation, or court hearing. It certainly put us on edge, and made it seem like we could never feel settled in the case.

At any rate, here we are. It’s Thanksgiving week one year later and Baby is asleep in his crib wth no plans for him to go anywhere, and Ms. 6 just arrived for the rest of the week. Happy Thanksgiving y’all!

A family full of horrors

This is probably gonna be really long bc I’m going to pour out everything that’s happened to me in my 17 years of life and trust me it’s alot so I’m sorry. Also I can’t remember everything so some of it may not make sense..or fit together

I was 5..I was told not to go into my uncles room but I did it anyway, he raped me but I should have listened bc little girls didn’t belong in there. I was just so curious..when I was 6 my little sister was born and I went from being daddy’s little princess ro the monster they kept locked up which caused me to start becoming ridiculously angry and volatile. I would go into black out rages and become so violent that they locked me in my room and ignored me, I’d hear them in the dining room having family game nights, talking extra loud and laughing at me. Mocking me because I had anger problems. By the time I was 9 me and my older brother were in a relationship he’d molest me in the pool and teach me how to please a man. I told the man who I thought was my dad (I’ll explain) and he had him sent to juvie it was traumatic but things only got worse I started being sent away to mental institutes because of my rage and I was assaulted by my parents on several occasions. Skip ahead a few years of assault and degrading behaviour towards me my birth mom called me one night to inform me that the man I had been living with was not my father and that he had stolen me in her absence to piss her off, which only made everything else I’d been through worse. He started to molest me every single night for 4 months he’d whisper things in my ear while he thought I was asleep and shove his fingers into me. He made me sleep on the couch in the living room and made a no bra at bedtime rule so that he had full access to my chest. I started taking extra sleeping pills at night to sleep through it and eventually it worked. My oldest brother walked in one night while the man’s tongue was down my throat but my brother was always so high he doesn’t even remember it. 4 months later I told my counselor and she reported it, dhs got involved and came to our house that day my oldest brother (the one who walked in on it) beat the shit out of me for accusing another one of his family members of molesting me. I was told that I’d never get to live with my birth mom bc she had custody of my brother who molested me but the man gave away his custody to her so dhs couldn’t have me. When I moved in with her the grand jury accused me of lying so that I could live with her even though I reported everything before that was a possibility. Tbh I only reported bc I walked in on him molesting my little sister..he could do whatever he wanted for me but god forbid he hurt another kid in that family he already fucked me and my brothers up. I still feel like I deserved all of this bc of my anger issues I mean I deserved to be punished for being angry but the physical abuse apparently want enough I had to be sexually and verbally assaulted too. I tried to commit suicide twice in a year and I cut all the time everywhere bc I wanted someone to notice me. They didn’t. I tried to run away but he hunted me down and made me go home with him. There’s still more but I am not ready to go there yet. I don’t feel as valid as other people bc I don’t have flashbacks or like even think about it anymore I’ve blocked it out for so long that it doesn’t seem as important as other people’s abuse.

Why Lee Jordan would be a feminist...
  • Half-blood or pureblood Lee still would’ve had to deal with racism.
  • He would’ve used his words and not his fists like other Gryffindor might: When you’re a black Brit,you’re aware that—like it or not—you represent people who look like you. 
  • Lee would know it’s better to be funny and approachable. He might not consciously know why. Maybe he had it in his head it was better to be funny and approachable than just loud. Loud could be interpreted as ‘scary.’
  • Angelina Johnson would’ve called him out on his commentary about her.
  • Hermione Granger’s house elf rants would sink in later when he was in the midst of the Second War.
  • Lee went from a character who in the Chamber of Secrets (American Hardback Edition) Chapter 14, Page 258, said “The Heir of Slytherin, the monster of Slytherin–Why don’t they just chuck all the Slytherins out?” and publicly ridiculed Hermione Granger for S.P.E.W. to one who in Deathly Hallows, Chapter 22 , page 439 did this:

“let’s take a moment to report those deaths that the Wizarding Wireless Network and Daily Prophet don’t think important enough to mention.”

  • He acknowledged the names of the missing and the dead on Potterwatch. He gave them back their humanity when those in power denied muggleborns and muggles were just as human as the rest of the magical population.He extended that courtesy to house-elves, too. Gornuk was named among the fallen.
  • Lee was listening when Kingsley Shacklebolt, whose very name is a reminder that slavery and that past affects the present, said "it’s one short step from Wizards first’ to ‘Purebloods first’, and then to 'Death Eaters.’ “ (DH,Chapter 22, pg 440)
  • Lee Jordan had to listen to others, had to unlearn his own problematic behaviors in order to become a better person. And eventually, he– a black, British, man– hosted a pirate radio station created to speak truth to power. 

  • J.K. Rowling could’ve chosen another character for that very important role, but she chose him–one of the few characters depicted as a person of color. 
  • And the movies stole that important role from this character by merely using his voice, by never letting people know that voice of Potterwatch was a black man . 

    We could’ve had a black character commenting on oppression in the movies, but we didn’t. Instead he was invisible. (Original post. X)

  • Lee Jordan would be a feminist because the last thing he would ever want for himself or others is to be invisible.

jindouche  asked:

I had to crawl out of the woodwork to ask about That Dishonored Meta or maybe you talked about it but I missed it, how do you feel bout the canon high chaos Emily in regards to the whole issue with the Outsider causing chaos in the world, especially since it ends up one marked mass murderer vs another one slightly less mass but still murderer? Or generally on high chaos Em opposing to the canon low chaos Corvo of the original?

okay, I feel there are several layers to this discussion

1. How I feel about HC Emily vs low Chaos Corvo - I prefer LC Em, but I’m okay with HC Em *in concept*. They lose me on the execution. Not even talking about her sounding like she’s trying to out-edge Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way (”I wish I had 8 arms so I could strangle 8 people at once!”) But it’s just not believable character-wise and she doesn’t have an arc, like Corvo did. Corvo lost the love of his life and his daughter was kidnapped, he was framed for that, he spent 6 MONTHS being tortured, thinking he has no one to trust or help him. It’s believable that this trauma would break him and turn him into a killer for HC. But also it’s understandable that he would rise above it in LC, because he’s a good person at heart and because he wants Emily to inherit a better city, not the chaos-ridden one. But even in LC that suppressed anger shows itself - Corvo might not kill people, but most LC takedowns are arguably more horrible than clean killing. Like, he sees Pendelton brothers grabbing and pushing Emily (in still-motion scene in Void) and cuts their tongues and sends them to slow death in the mines. He has interesting and tragic character dynamic in both LC and HC.

And Emily… just doesn’t have that? She was not tortured, Corvo wasn’t killed, she found an ally with a plan within like 20 minutes.  Like, okay, everyone is different, and 6 months of torture is not a requirement for “justifiable trauma”. But Emily doesn’t sound hurt or desperate - her diaries are bummed out at best! She’s never like “Oh my god, I’m alone against everyone, I don’t know what to do, Delilah is murdering innocent people, I failed them, I don’t even know if I can save Dad”. Instead, she’s mostly “I always thought being Empress is boring, but now I think I want it back. Gotta get my throne and save father. I guess.” She writes joking letters to her lover, so it’s like “Lol remember that time I was without pants in public? Lmao good times. Ok, gotta go kill 20 people before breakfast, xoxo!” She just starts mass murdering people without showing any real distress about it (aside from her edgy comments)

It was easy to understand and even relate a bit to HC Corvo, but you have to do a lot of head-canoning to make HC Emily a believable functioning character. Not to mention, HC drops ball hard on the supposed theme of the game- Ruling Class as Parasites. I still insist that better HC ending would be Em taking Delilah’s place and usurping the Outsider’s powers for herself - becoming an ultimate parasite. 

2. How I feel about HC Emily being canon in relation to Death of the Outsider - I think it makes sense to make Em canonically HC if they want to justify Daud. I don’t have much faith left in DH writers, but I don’t believe they’re really gonna use “Daud blames Outsider for his own problems!” reason that tumblr joked about in 73462 identical posts. (Again, I can’t stand Daud, but that’s just stupid) Instead, we have one eldritch abomination Empress taking place of another, and whoever wins, people of the Isles lose. Daud thought he was the baddest bitch in town, the legendary Knife of Dunwall, but turns out, he never had any imagination. Delilah takes it to the next fuckn level and takes over the Empire. And then in Karnaca, he sees Emily, who was a meh Empress, but a decent girl, turn into a monster who single-handedly murdered entire districts, and became the Butcher Empress after the Outsider gave her the mark. And Daud himself, with the Outsider’s help, sent Delilah into the Void, and there she shoved the Outsider into the locker and took his powers, which means not just that the Outsider is horrible at choosing who to mark, but also that he can’t even handle people he marked. You can easily see how he can reason that “No one should have so much power” and also “No one should be able to give so much power.” Of course, it’s all speculation at this point, but canon HC Emily makes sense from that narrative perspective.

Hi Aurora okay first tysm for your blog It's so lovely to have another person so passionate about my fave things (i.e hp and period dramas) Anyway, i recently read the HP series (again) and found myself feeling SO MUCH. I genuinely teared up at so many different touching parts and I was just wondering what are your favorite most heart-wrenching/emotional parts from the books? I realize this is a lengthy quesition so feel free to never answer this or take a year.

ye S SS i love being passionate ab things and sharing that passion w my followers!!!!! i love yall esp when u ask me questions like this where i get to talk ab my fave things everrrrrrrrr (ps thank u so much for letting me take forever to answer this ur so cute to say that ilysm)

ok so literally i will cry my way thru the entire series when i reread bc harry potter has so much emotional weight for me and so many memories that go along with it. but i decided to limit myself to just 10 bc otherwise id be sitting here typing all day. so w/o further ado: 

AURORA’S TOP 10 MOST TEARFUL HARRY POTTER MOMENTS: 

((in no particular order)) 

  1. HARRY READS LILY’S LETTER IN DH: listen harry doesnt actually spend a lot of the books angsting over the fact that he doesnt have parents but in moments like this u remember he IS AN ORPHAN AND IT GETS ME SO HARD. fuk like just picturing harry crouched on the floor of sirius’s bedroom reading that letter… rereading it… crying… wow.gif!!!!! the line that makes me cry eveRY TIME is “She had made her g’s the same way he did : he searched through the letter for every one of them, and each felt like a friendly little wave glimpsed from behind a veil.“ LIKE RIP RIP RIP ABORT ABORT ABORT ITS TOO SAD!!!!!
  2. THE LOST PROPHECY IN OOTP: JESSESCREAMING.JPEG!!!!!!!!!!!! listen ,,, i talk ab this chapter so much on my blog. it is my #1 favorite moment in my #1 favorite harry potter book which is my #1 favorite series of all time. SO ITS A PRETTY BIG DEAL. harry’s reaction to sirius’s death… his anger at dumbledore… his grief… his discovery of his fate… its beautiful writing and its so painful but so amazing to read. LIKE!!!!! MY BABY!!! HE’S LOST SO MANY PEOPLE!!!!!!!! MY SWEET SUMMER CHILD!!!!!!!!!! “I DON’T CARE!“ Harry yelled at them, snatching up a lunascope and throwing it into the fireplace. “I’VE HAD ENOUGH, I’VE SEEN ENOUGH, I WANT OUT, I WANT IT TO END, I DON’T CARE ANYMORE!” “You do care,” said Dumbledore. He had not flinched or made a single move to stop Harry demolishing his office. His expression was calm, almost detached. “You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it.”” LIKE LITERALLY WHEN I GET TO THIS POINT I HAVE TO TAKE A BREAK BC IM CRYING SO MUCH I CANT MAKE OUT THE WORDS!!!!!!!!!!!! also fun story: one time i was listening to ootp on audiobook while on vacation and we were in the car waiting to taxi on to a ferry boat and we were listening to this chapter when the ferry guy came by to take our tickets and i had like TEARS STREAMING DOWN MY FACE and jim dale is yelling as harry in the background…. the guy was like ‘is this bitch ok??’ lmaOOOOo 
  3. HARRY AND THE MIRROR OF ERISED IN SS:  this is another one of those moments where you remember that harry is an orphan and its /so/ painful. thinking about this teeny 11 year old baby harry sneaking out every night just to sit in front of this mirror so he can see his parents………my darling baby sweetheart i love him So Much. it just makes me so sad like hes /so young/ AND HE JUST WANTS TO SEE HIS PARENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHH!! it also gives way to one of my all time favorite hp quotes: “It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” 
  4. HARRY STOPS SIRIUS AND LUPIN FROM KILLING PETER IN POA: me reading this part is literally ISAYTHATSMYBABYANDIMREALLYPROUD.GIF!!!!!! like!! my boy!! he finds out this man literally caused the death of his parents and he MAKES THE GROWN ASS ADULTS SPARE HIS LIFE… LIKE… he literally acts twice his age and is so mature and is just…….so amazing. it shows such strength and wisdom and it makes me SO PROUD. the way he references james also makes me cry because you see the relationship harry has with james even though he’s literally never met him and its so beautiful. i love harry so much. 
  5. HARRY AFTER SECTUMSEMPER-ING MALFOY IN HBP: this is literally the opposite of that last one where im so proud of harry this is def… not one of his best moments lol. he rly rly fucks up and his guilt is so raw and it makes me so emotional because i feel SO bad for him. its def an important harry moment in the books because it shows his flaws and the consequences of his rage, but it also shows how GOOD he is because he feels so bad about what happens and like willingly takes his punishment even though it means that he cant play in the quidditch match. he really like… atones and even tho its rough to read i def love that its a part of the series bc its a really like watershed moment for harry and i think it really reminds him of the wizard he wants to be. this part also leads to i think a more satisfying harry/ginny first kiss bc ginny defends harry and then him not going to the game leads to “several sunlit days” AKA ONE OF MY FAVE HP MOMENTS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!
  6. HARRY AND HERMIONE VISIT JAMES AND LILY’S GRAVE IN DH: “But they were not living, thought Harry: They were gone. The empty words could not disguise the fact that his parents’ moldering remains lay beneath snow and stone, indifferent, unknowing.And tears came before he could stop them, boiling hot then instantly freezing on his face, and what was the point in wiping them off or pretending? He let them fall, his lips pressed hard together, looking down at the thick snow hiding from his eyes the place where the last of Lily and James lay, bones now, surely, or dust, not knowing or caring that their living son stood so near, his heart still beating, alive because of their sacrifice and close to wishing, at this moment, that he was sleeping under the snow with them.”  THIS IS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE MOMENTS THAT I HAVE TO STOP READING BC IM CRYING SO MUCH I CANT MAKE OUT THE WORDS ANYMORE. I CRIED TYPING THIS. IM SO SAD. 
  7. THE FOREST AGAIN IN DH: hoo boy. hoooooo boy this is a Big One. this one is really…. wow. just. wow. [deep breath]. there is So Much in this chapter that makes me cry where do i even START. harry realizing that he has to die and ACCEPTING IT BRAVELY LIKE THE HERO HE IS. “Why had he never appreciate what a miracle he was,  brain and nerve and bounding heart?” im crying….. hes so good. HARRY NEARLY STOPPING WHEN HE SEES GINNY and ginny’s crying and comforting some girl and im crying too. JAMES. SIRIUS. LILY. REMUS. WHEN HARRY ASKS IF IT HURTS TO DIE LIKE LITEARLLY I HAVE TO PUT THE BOOK DOWN AND GET UP  AND WLAK AROUND THE ROOM BECAUSE I GET SO EMOTIONAL LIKE. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! when harry sees harry and screams at him ……………… rip in pieces me!!!!!!!! ALSO ONE OF HIS LAST THOUGHTS BEFORE THE AVADA KEDAVRA IS OF GINNY AND KISSING HER……….. [GUNSHOTS] [SCREAMING]
  8. BELLATRIX TORTURES HERMIONE IN DH: fuk this scene is no joke scary like it took harry potter to another level of real darkness. hermione being tortured was so chilling like beautiufl amazing smart snarky hermione it was so painful to read like my heart rate goes up when i read it bc im worried for my girl :/ and ron is sHAKING and like screaming and literally throwing himself at the walls to try to get to her and its SO upsetting like. they are still CHILDREN like theyre all so young and they dont deserve this like. hearing her plead and stuff … its just…. too much. these are my CHILDREN i have to PROTECT them. 
  9. HARRY DIGS DOBBYS GRAVE IN DH: this is another one of those harry moments where i just want to give him a huge hug. like he insists on digging dobby’s grave by hand which is just ….. [gets choked up] its fine. and his thoughts while he dig make me so sad. he so /tired/. hes so frustrated with dumbledore and he the hallows and the horcruxes and he feels responsible for what happened. and ron coming out and helping him dig silently makes me so happy and its one of those times u really see how much rons friendship means to harry. and harry comes out of this like … older and more mature? his wisdom and knowledge is rly apparent when he talks with griphook and olivander right after this like. he knows what hes going to do. hes made his choice. hes not going to race voldemort for the wand. i love him so much for that choice. hes such a grown man in this part like accepting responsibility, taking care of hermione and everyone like getting things in order. i love him. 
  10. MRS WEALSEY HUGS HARRY IN THE HOSPITAL WING IN GOF“’It wasn’t your fault, Harry,’ Mrs. Weasley whispered. ‘I told him to take the cup with me,’ said Harry. Now the burning feeling was in his throat too. He wished Ron would look away. Mrs. Weasley set the potion down on the bedside cabinet, bent down, and put her arms around Harry. He had no memory of ever being hugged like this, as though by a mother. The full weight of everything he had seen that night seemed to fall in upon him as Mrs. Weasley held him to her. His mothers face, his father’s voice, the sight of Cedric, dead on the ground all started spinning in his head until he could hardly bear it, until he was screwing up his face against the howl of misery fighting to get out of him.” HARRY POTTER DESERVES MORE HUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he feels so guilty about cedric and god bless mrs weasley for telling him it wasnt his fault because it WASNT!!! he did so amazing in the graveyard like.. .he saw voldemort return and he fought him and he survived and he saw his paretns and hE TOOK CEDRICS BODY BACK SO IT COULD BE WITH HIS FAMILY!!!!!!!! HE TOOK IT BACK FOR THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  i would die a thousand deaths if it meant that harry didnt have to experience this pain!!!!

whew so there we go!!!!! the bottom line is obviously that i love the harry potter series more than anything and specifically i love the boy harry potter so so SO much and his suffering is agonizing to read and he didnt deserve any of it!!! i can litearlly think of SO many more heartbreaking moments in the series but here are just a handful. happy birthday to harry!!!

   I can only assume this is about Gen unless another Nightmare DH has taken up residence in the community that I’m unaware of, so I’m going to address this right here and now. If it’s about a different DH, well, I might as well say this anyway.

   Let’s start with the biggest part of these anons on wrasecrets, and that’s that I’m ‘manipulative’ and I threaten suicide. May not sound like much coming from me, but that’s flat out untrue. I have never once threatened suicide to anyone; passively on a bad day I might say that I long for death, but that is FAR from a threat. You can talk to any of the people I’ve RPd with the longest– people with actual faces rather than conniving anons on that toxic shithole blog– and they will tell you the same.

   I don’t know who this/these anon(s) are, but I will be the first to state for the record that yes, I have had some falling outs with RP partners in the past, but I always try to make sure things end with no hard feelings if I can. Sometimes shit happens and people don’t get along, but this is fucking absurd; if you have a problem with me, put on your big-kid pants and fucking come to ME about it, off Anon, like a god damn adult. 

   Secondly, I haven’t the foggiest idea where people are getting the idea that I beg for money to spend on art; my fiance and I live paycheck to paycheck, and some are better than others. When the bills are paid and we have the money leftover, yes, I commission art. When we’re in those periods of struggling, however, yes, sometimes I do ask for help for food money, but never ONCE have I spent that money on art. Allow me to give you an example here:

   The last time I purchased art (which I’m still waiting on due to the artist’s internet troubles) was Oct 27; this came from a fund I had set aside for a very large commission I was planning. In other words, money that I had SET ASIDE for getting art, I spent thrice after ordering that commission. The first was an appearance change for a toon (that was frivolous, I was caught up in Blizzcon hype, sue me). The second was buying game time for a friend whose time had run out. The third, on Nov 6, AS YOU CAN SEE, is for Meijer, our local grocer. I spent the money I had been saving on groceries. Not the other way around.

   So unless you magically happen to be scrutinizing my bills and my finances, don’t you dare claim to know what the hell I’m doing with my money or belittle me because I sometime treat myself to an art of my character. I never have and never will use money I get for getting food on art.

   This is the only post I’m going to make regarding this ridiculous and sudden upcrop of people who want to stir the pot by telling flat out lies on that fucking cesspool of a blog, and I’ll end it by saying this: if you have any human decency and you’re an actual fucking adult, you’ll grow up and come to me off anon about whatever grievances you have. After this I’m not indulging the bullshit– I have a good, reliable group of friends who know me better than most, friends who I can count on, and that’s enough for me.

DH and DD are doing a great job of changing out my dressing each day. I worked up the courage yesterday to see what my injury looked like. I still haven’t felt brave enough to look at the “before” photo.

This injury has been a little traumatic. I’ve never been really hurt in my married life before. I broke bones when I was a kid (one arm in first grade, another in middle school, and a leg in high school). Getting hurt and then imagining all of the different scenarios that could have been still has me thinking.

One of the words that has been said often is “trauma.” As in, “You’re body has been through trauma.” As a foster parent, it has made me really think about how we use that term when it comes to our kids. I was involved in a freak accident and it has been, to a degree, traumatic. It was scary and I’m still reeling from it in different ways. How much worse it must be as a child to undergo trauma that is potentially done to you intentionally, and potentially by the ones closest to you.

I think about some of the kids who have been through my home who have been severely physically or sexually or emotionally abused. Generally by the people closest to them that should have been protecting them. Then we rip kids out of their environments and put them in a new home and the move itself could be considered traumatic. I’m still processing it all, but I realize I don’t feel okay right now, and I’m realizing how much worse it must be for kids who are too young to process what’s happening to them, and how difficult it must be to move forward after living through what they’ve been through. I realize I’m not explaining myself very well, but I’m turning around some big stuff in my head this week.

Things I wish people would remember in their headcanons:

1. The Yule Ball only happens during the Tri-Wizard tournament. Perhaps there could be other similar events but in canon it’s specific.

2. House elves are rare/serve mostly wealthy families. As far as we know the Malfoys house only had one, because Lucius says, “you lost me my servant, boy.” Also, in GoF, Dobby reports Winky asking where there would be work for two house-elves, and Dobby says Hogwarts. So since we never see another single-family household with multiple elves, I would be very surprised if there were any left after Dobby at the Malfoys

3. The Room of Requirement is not common knowledge, at least not pre-DH

So, as an altoholic, how do you feel about having no less than SIX new playable races on launch, with the promise of more such races in future patches?

Mostly I’m thinkin about race changes!  

Strigine –> proper Dark Iron FINALLY.  She always has been but now she’ll finally really look it and I’m hype!

Whirlpool –> PLEASE ADD GILBLINS, BLIZZ, OMG YES

I’m tempted to move Chrysaor to WRA since I’ll have room but then I’d be abandoning my wife’s main on MG that she never plays so idk… although that being said I’m not subbed right now myself. I have however been gifted some time as an early birthday gift that I’m now hoarding like the last cookie trying to decide on the proper time to use it XD

I’m pretty happy elf wise with my DH BUT… it’s tempting to race change my troll hunter into a Nightborne or Zandalari because I do like them and I do have another troll that’s far more trollish (my darling druid).  Kahani’s a Naga in disguise waiting for playable Naga anyway so idk. But that also kinda feels like throwing money away so… eh? I might roll a Nightborne and/or Zandalari, idk. Will play it by ear!

Also I cringe as I type all of this because money.

DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES | TWO YEARS SINCE THE SERIES FINALE.
↳Finishing The Hat aired May 13, 2012.

It’s funny. Some people never get to know the folks next door. They share a fence and nothing else, and we shared everything. How did we get to be so lucky?

Prologue 8

“ This is the worst day of my life began. A masked man closing in on Dunwall Tower. Now it’s happening again: another Empress falls, another story ends. Last time it almost ruined the Empire. Will I do better? Delilah outfoxed me, and I never saw it coming. But I was Corvo before I was the Royal Protector. Before I owened a sword, I fought with sticks and broken glass, what ever came to hand. I don’t know what ground scheme you’ve got underway, Delilah, but I’ll give all I’ve got to stop you.”

EDIT: Please stop reblogging this post.ย It isnโ€™t being spread around a lot, but every so often it suddenly earns notes again. I donโ€™t want it to spread more than it has in the case that it might invite hate. Granted, if someone is willing to have a healthy debate, Iโ€™ll take it, but thatโ€™s unlikely on this website. I made this post a long time ago and Iโ€™m not as involved in the fandom anymore, so Iโ€™m really not interested in any sort of discourse involving this topic. Again, donโ€™t reblog this post. I donโ€™t know why people keep doing it despite what I said, but DO NOT REBLOG.

ย Iโ€™m trying my best to not be biased, but if you feel that I amย pleaseย point it out. Remember that a lot of this can be pure interpretation. I try to use canon and things that canon hints at in my arguments, but I may getย some things wrong.ย 

To be honest, despite how much I tried, I do not think I was all that fair to James, so if I could get someoneโ€™s feedback on that it would help a lot. Thanks!

WARNING: The following is an essay that puts James and Jily in a bad light. If you donโ€™t want to see that, stop reading from this point on.
