Just a warning for those who aren’t aware: the porn bots on here are becoming out of hand, and are now starting to reblog people’s selfies and are actually adding sketchy links along with sexual captions. I think, until this problem is fixed (let’s hope it will be), it’s probably wise you don’t post any selfies if you don’t want your face being on a porn blog, especially if you’re a minor. Take care!
Welcome to harrypottersummer 2017! It’s happening! You get a reread! And you get a reread! Everybody gets a reread!
So, without further ado -
Cancel all your plans for the summer. We’re rereading Harry Potter.
It’s the most beautiful time of year, aka the time where Potterheads get to reread the entire Harry Potter series over the course of one summer - together! harrypottersummer was created last year, everyone who joined in had a blast, so this is round two and the whole thing is on a very good path to become an annual event.
How does it work?
Starting on June 16th, everyone who cares to join will start reading the Harry Potter series all over, first book to last, whilst sharing but their reading progress as well as headcanons, fanart, fanfics, edits, theories, anecdotes and literally anything else you can think of, on any social media platform you can think of using the hashtag #harrypottersummer. Done!
What’s this year’s schedule?
Last year, we went for a book per week, which was nice for those of us who were stuck with little to no wifi for the bigger part of the reread (-points to self-), but was stressful for busier folks. This year, only the first three books will be getting a week each, and every book from Goblet of Fire onward will be getting two! Yay!
June 16th - June 22nd 2017: Philosopher’s Stone Week
June 23rd - June 29th 2017: Chamber of Secrets Week
June 30th - July 6th 2017: Prisoner of Azkaban Week
July 7th - July 20th 2017: Goblet of Fire Week
July 21st - August 3rd 2017: Order of the Phoenix Week
August 4th - August 17th 2017: Half-Blood Prince Week
August 18th - August 31st 2017: Deathly Hallows Week
September 1st 2017:MEETUP AT KING’S CROSS STATION, LONDON
Wait, whaat? Meetup???
Well, yes meetup, assuming it all works out as planned! In honour of September 1st, 2017 also being Epilogue Day, anyone who happens to be in London that day is more than welcome to stop by at King’s Cross station to come and wave our childhood goodbye one last time. Are you ready? I’m not ready. Nope.
Make sure you check this blog for updates on the meetup, as more details will hopefully be available soon. For now, just know that I’ll be there, @ronaldswheezy will be there, come say hi and have a chat and take selfies and get emotional over our childhood. Why not. Might be fun.
How do I participate?
Grab your Harry Potter books, cancel your life, and start rereading.
Spread your progress like wildfire. This includes any form of social media you choose to participate in. Tumblr! Snapchat! Instagram! YouTube! Twitter! All the things!
Get creative. Write fanfics. Make fanart. Make edits. Make playlists. Start cosplaying. Write a song. Build your own Lego Hogwarts. Nothing is off limits.
And finally, tag absolutely EVERYTHING with #harrypottersummer. Everything. Even if it’s just a 4am text post that goes ‘do dementors poop?’.
If you’ve got any more questions, the ask box is open! A calendar page with the schedule and an FAQ face and other things are coming up too, as soon as I get around to setting them all up. If you want to message me on my main blog, you find me @stuckwith-harry.
This is something that is really hard for me to post. I’ve been a skinny girl for most of my teen years. I never really worked out back then or payed too much attention to what I was eating, I just tried to eat generally healthy. & I was very skinny. I still had body insecurities, but I never really saw myself getting “fat”.
Around the time I graduated I started to put on a little bit of weight. This is what I look like currently. My biggest insecurity is definitely my tummy and just my mid section. I always worked really hard to be confident in my body, even when I was skinny. I got to a place where I could genuinely love my body and everything about myself. & to lose that confidence when I gained weight just shook me. I had worked so hard to falter as soon as I gained weight.
I’ve spent the last couple months trying to hide my body, but clothes that make me “look good” and conceal my tummy. I’ve gotten rude comments from family members and friends about my weight gain. Because apparently gaining some weight is the worst thing you can do ever. I started working out because I felt so insecure. I wasn’t doing it for the right reasons.
I can’t say that I’m completely confident with my body yet but I decided now is the time the start that journey. My mental health is just important as my physical health. I want to be the body positive person that I constantly preach to people. I talk about fat positivity all the time but I don’t follow anything that I say in my everyday life. So I want that to change right here and now. I want to feel beautiful again. I know this is a sappy emotional ass caption but I’ve really been struggling with this for months and I wanted to share it with everyone on my blog and just be honest and raw about it. No, I don’t feel totally okay with myself yet but I’m going to try. And the first step for me is to wear a crop top and post a selfie for 8000 people to see on tbecause fuck it. You don’t need to have a flat stomach to wear a crop top!
Fuck your societal norms.
Fuck your standards.
Fuck your prejudices.
Fuck your heteronormative pressures.
Fuck your labels.
Fuck your judgments.
Fuck your narrow-mindedness.
Fuck your bible thumping.
Fuck your confusion.
Fuck your fucking fuck shit.
‘Scuseme while I go fuck the shit outta the love of my fucking life.
HI FRIENDS!!!! do you remember a blog called nonbinarypoc that kinda just disappeared???? well i used to run that blog and i got super sad and had to delete everything etc etc etc but now i’m back! and tumblr is still struggling with an utter lack of NBPoC representation so please, submit your selfies! submit your musings! sumbit anything that’s relevant to you as a queer person of color! OR just tag your cute selfies #nbpocparty and i’ll do the rest~
okay i posted this and now i can’t stop thinking about what blogs the different
silm characters would run so y’all are gonna suffer with me
eru iluvitar is tumblr staff because he created everything but does absolutely nothing to maintain it and every time there’s drama he’s just like *opens one eye* “what are the kids up to these days?
ah. murder again.” *closes the eye*
eölprobably has one of those blogs that’s like “i’m everything tumblr hates. feminists and SJWS beware, you’re in for a scare”
yavanna has a nature blog. lots of cute pictures of animals and trees, sometimes selfies. v classy, stays out of the drama but has Opinions
fingon: mostly music, occasionally gay porn
maedhros: sends supportive asks to fingon on anon and then pretends it wasn’t him. questionable political views. has a separate, private blog on which he also posts gay porn (and cryptic, emotional vent posts)
fëanor: tumblr famous. always involved in some kind of drama. 90% of all the Discourse™ can be traced back to him
sauronreposts everything, never gives credit, and self-promotes on literally every single post (”follow this evil overlord! you will love him on your dash”). everyone hates his blog and maedhros keeps trying to report him but he always comes back somehow
turin has a monochrome blog with gifs from old french films and depressing quotes on black backgrounds. he only has 2 followers and one of them is beleg (although he later blocks beleg after they have a fight and the two of them never speak to each other again)
galadrielhas a social justice blog and constantly calls everyone out on their bullshit. her selfies get like a million notes because she’s gorgeous and kinda looks like she could kill you with her brain
**ANYBODY CAN REBLOG THIS SPECIFIC PERSONAL PHOTO**
This photo is a HUUUUGE step for me.
I haven’t smiled in a photo for nearly 10 years now. Yep. Ten years.
After my uncle’s suicide when I was 8 years old, my mental health got really bad and it has been a rough road ever since.
My depression made me HATE the way happiness looked on me. The way my chin pointed a bit when I smiled, the crookedness of my teeth…. I wanted to hide.
I would change the way I walked, hoping less people would look at me. I didn’t feel cute enough for that attention. I wanted to put on a cloak of invisiblity, conceal all the flaws.
I used to really, genuinely think I wasn’t going to make it to eighteen. I fully believed it, with all my heart. Some days I still struggle but I refuse to let my depression, anxiety, and OCD keep me anymore. They will 100% visit from time to time, maybe even stay in my home a bit longer because I’m not at that point in recovery yet… But, I now know that I own them.
If you are reading this you are alive in a day and age that has never been seen before. You are witnessing the dawning of the greatest technological age that the world has ever seen - and you have the audacity to say you can’t?
Twenty years ago there was no Instagram for you to post your latest selfie. Twenty years ago there was no blogging platform for you to reach out to like-minded individuals. Twenty years ago you had very limited choices.
Today, right now, you have the ability to click a few buttons and instantly communicate with people all over the world. This has never been the case until relatively recently - who knows how long it’s going to last?
With this in mind I want to encourage you to think about what is possible. What is it that truly matters to you? What is it that you could talk about for hours on end and never get bored.
Take that topic to the internet and Google it. Read every article, every blog, watch every YouTube video on it. Then think about what you could add to the reservoir of information on your topic - what’s your take on it and how does it differ to what’s already out there?
The way I see it - if people can get paid millions to play video games every day - I can sure as hell can make a living doing something I love. And I won’t stop until I find a way that works - because I’m alive in a day and age that allows me to do so.
If you feel like you weren’t “destined” to do what you truly love - take out your phone and look at it. This is your gateway into creating the life you’ve always wanted to live.
The only time you can’t do something is when you’re dead.
