Hey, that sad Remus quote happened towards the beginning of chapter 36, "The Only One He Ever Feared," in OotP. Remus has to tell Harry that Sirius has died, it slowly sinks in, and as Harry calms down, Remus lifts the spell causing Neville's legs to jerk, and then it happens. I don't know the page as I'm reading the eBook, but it is in the US version of the book. It's so painful in context, but I understand needing to see it there. Hugs!
Thank you so much for your help. I just had to confirm that it was there in the American version because my life is all Marauders feelings, all the time. The hugs are graciously accepted, so here’s another thank you for those.
I would like to thank Emmasj for taking the time three years ago to link me to a musical about Harry Potter, and for chatting with me as I keysmashed my way into a new fandom and way of life. I don’t know if/when I would’ve discovered StarKid without you. Thank you, darling. <3
unicornemma answered: This isn’t exactly a new opinion, but yes, I support it completely. I think religious marriage should come with zero legal rights, as well.
Oh, really? …. Well, I felt proud to have come up with it. Good to know, though. Now I won’t sound like a moron at least a little bit less of the time, whoop whoop. And I agree with you on both points.
I don’t know what I want to do next, in my life. I have a decent job, a nice apartment and roommates, a long-distance girlfriend, a local ex-girlfriend, family and friends… My roommates are leaving me when the lease is up, so I’ve known for a while that I have to make a decision. EIther find new roommates to fill this apartment, find a smaller apartment with fewer roommates, or move to Georgia with an ex-roommate (which would involve getting a new job, obviously).
My landlord contacted one of my roommates today to ask if we were renewing the lease, because apparently the lease is up June 13th–as in, a month and a half before we thought it was up. I personally think he’s made a mistake, but if not, my decision has to be made a lot faster.
Honestly, Georgia is looking better and better. I want to shake up my life and that would be a way to do it–move six hours away. Start over. It’s scary for a lot of reasons. I don’t know what kind of job I can reasonably expect to get… I won’t know anyone except for my roommate, although a quick glance at OkCupid shows that it might just be easy enough to make some other friends. Plenty of nice-seeming queer folks. But I’ve never lived even two hours away from my family.
URGH. I think I’m going to do it. I keep thinking about it and it just seems like the best option, but telling my mom that will be awful. But what an adventure.
All these people giving up soda until abortion ends. First of all, I hope they realize that means giving it up forever, because abortion isn’t going away. Ever.
I’m also loving the images in my head of these people accidentally drinking soda and then trying to spit it out and washing their mouths because omg no i’m not pro-choice i still hate abortion, eh, no pun intended but abort abort abort!
And the other image is of these people staring down a can of soda until they break, say fuck it, get abortions if you want, and then chugging the soda, so many sighs of relief.
To me, giving up something Until Abortion Ends is for reeeeaaaal. If you break your promise, you become pro-choice. Automatically.
Well, I went to Orlando for a week. Got to go to Hogwarts for two days, rode the Forbidden Journey (flying through the castle and across the grounds) a total of six times, which means I have to go back and ride it at least once more.
Anyway, didn’t have internet the vast majority of the week. I didn’t mind that for the most part, but I did miss Tumblr. If I’ve missed something you especially wanted me to see, just let me know.
Anyway. I like my story and I’m going to keep working on it. I have about 37k words written on it. Which means it’s a very short novel right now. It’s not a huge story, though, so that’s okay.
So, hey, quick question. Meredith isn’t a girly-girl and she doesn’t wear jewelry, strictly speaking, so I want the boys to give her something else, in place of an engagement ring. Something creative but kind of romantic, too. Ideas?
