why bad things happen

Slytherin: Are you okay?

Ravenclaw: Nope.

Slytherin: Okay, I’ll bite, why?

Ravenclaw: I just like to be prepared, you know? Set yourself up for the worst and then anything otherwise and you’re pleasantly surprised.

Slytherin: You’re never pleasantly surprised by anything.

Ravenclaw: Well, no, because if something good is happening, then something really bad must be about to happen.

Slytherin: And people think I’m the depressing one.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: during 'man up' from the book of mormon 2011, elder price sings "heavenly father why do you let bad things happen, more to the point, why do you let bad things happen to me? i'm sure you don't think i'm a flake because you clearly made a mistake!" and immediately the elders pop up singing 'turn it off', a song about bottling up the feelings that were not okay for a mormon to feel, a song starred by elder mckinley, a man that confesses to have 'gay thoughts' since he was in fifth grade but claims they have passed now, at the end of the musical, mckinley decides to finally 'turn his feelings on' and beat his internalised homophobia after a new vision of religion, but most importantly, why did they choose to reference 'turn it off' when kevin price is convinced god made a mistake with him? is he suggesting there are something Wrong with him apart from leaving his companion alone? maybe not, but then why elder mckinley has a place in price's 'spooky mormon hell dream', a scene that represents all the sins price has committed through the years? does thi-
Which Classics Author Should You Fight?
  • Charles Dickens: The Victorian equivalent of a white male tumblr meninist. Fight his past newspaper blogger ass, though the guy does write about his own "tragic experiences", so be warned that a caricature of you will probably be appearing in his next novel.
  • The Brontes: idk they're from Yorkshire I wouldn't risk it
  • Dante Aligheri: Yess he spends all his time in his room writing self-insert Bible fanfic and never goes outside, 10/10 would fight this nerd. You will win. Easily.
  • Mary Shelley: Why would you want to fight Mary Shelley???? She's nice and bad things happened to her and she invented scifi! Go reevaluate your life choices.
  • Victor Hugo: Don't. He will kill you otp viciously and then spend 38 pages describing someone's hat.
  • Jonathon Swift: It's 50/50 you'll win, but you might fall asleep from his long-winded prose before you land a punch.
  • William Shakespeare: Little is known about him, other than the fact that he had free access to bears and swords and a penchant for revenge and mass murder as plot devices. If you're gonna fight him, watch your back.
  • C.S. Lewis: Whiny and allergic to adjectives and allegorical and super racist. Fight Him. So long as your childhood can take it.
  • J.R.R Tolkien: Shakespeare's biggest fan, so a total dork. Also old and shell shocked. Your call.
  • William Thackeray: Him and his friends will get drunk and gang up on you. Not advisable.
  • Alexandre Dumas: He was once described as "the most generous, large-hearted being in the world" and had extensive military training. Just... don't.
  • Harper Lee: Still alive, so she's got a foot up on the rest of them.
  • George Orwell: Total fuckin' politics nerd. Will keep a diary of the fight.
  • Jane Austen: You'd feel too mean, it'd be like punching some harmless lana del-ray book club chic. Fight her if you want but be aware of the emotional consequences.
  • Mark Twain: Constantly angry looking. Just look at that mustache. You want to fight him already, don't you?
  • Oscar Wilde: The sassiest little shit ever. Be prepared for cane wielding sassmeister. You'll probably lose, but it'll be worth it.

literally there’s never been a more iconic line in theater than “heavenly father, why do you let bad things happen? more to the point, why do you let bad things happen to me?”

I lost some really pricey headphones today and I’m coming back tomorrow on campus to check if I left them in one of my labs I hope they’re still there pls send me good luck
