Street harassment is not a compliment.
My favourite tragic love story is that of an artist and their art
to be reblogged by every artist on tumblr eventually, for sure
Alright, in Harry’s defense, Snape’s handwriting might have changed since he was a student. Maybe not completely but probably enough that Harry—who already wouldn’t have expected Snape to be the Half-Blood Prince—wouldn’t have noticed. He was sort of making up his own assumptions of who it was anyway and therefore was sort of seeing what he wanted to see. He thought of the Half-Blood Prince as his friend and Snape as his enemy and therefore probably didn’t WANT to put the two together… nonetheless there should have been a chapter where he sees connections between the two handwritings and tries to rationalize it.
AND ANYWAY HARRY IS PRETTY FUCKING DUMB.
This is my problem with “your personality here” protagonists, where the writer purposefully makes the main character as bland as possible so that the reader can just drop themself into the role and pretend they are going on the adventure (Harry Potter and Bella Swan both have this in common, although at least HP has a much better supporting cast that at least keeps the series interesting, as well as an actual fucking plot). The problem is, this isn’t nearly as interesting and as immersive as creating a well-rounded character with a strong personality and even stronger opinions, acting in ways that surprise you because they’re a real human being (as far as you’re concerned, reading the book) and they’re making decisions that you might not necessarily make. My favorite book, Everything is Illuminated, has a main character that is NOTHING like me, but I can still sympathize with all his decisions and I feel what he feels because the author lets me get right into his head. Getting into someone else’s head is much different than getting into your own. That’s why we read books.
I remember posting somewhere once in a thread about why girls aren’t exploited in animation anymore where some guy said, “all the disney girls are drawn to be generally attractive, but I don’t think there are any eye-candy men… or are there? Are there any Disney men that lots of girls like?” and I mentioned Roger. Tons of girls replied agreeing with me and the original guy was like “wait, Roger? from 101 Dalmatians? What’s attractive about him, he’s tall and lanky and has a big nose, he isn’t muscley at all! Wouldn’t you all prefer Gaston or something? Or do you girls think his big nose is indicative of something else?” and I was like “no, you idiot, he’s a silly, goofy guy who likes animals and can play a bunch of instruments, that’s why he’s attractive. What’s the matter with you? Gaston, seriously?”
This is why we need more girls in animation. And more guys like Roger apparently.
Oh my god, Roger is exactly my type: tall, lanky, and geeky. I only just realized this.
Tall, lanky, musical, VERY funny, can be manipulated to look like BBC’s Sherlock…*nodding* Yes, good.
And if you ever needed another example of false equivalence, here we go: the dude assumes that what women want are physically-strong, musclebound guys - the POWER fantasy.
Hey. My name is Nathan and I want to meet some girls. Nice pretty girls. Ones that like to hang out. I like Metal. I like chips. That’s it.
I totally want to date Nathan Explosion.
No I am not exaggerating.

This is the most beautiful post on all of Tumblr.
I’m bored and slightly manic, so I’ll write the url of whoever reblogs this in circular gallifreyan (with accompanying blog colors). The one up there is mine.

“Well it can’t be that stressful if its what you love to do!”
“Just draw something and turn it in, its not that hard.”
Look, I made a gif of this most awesome wizard at the Leaky Cauldron!
DUDE IS READING ‘A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME’ BY STEPHEN HAWKING
I NEVER REALIZED
are you serious
I always assumed wizards just ignored science, because the fact that “magic” exists, can explain anything. But there are MuggleBorn wizards, ones who, until they were eleven, lived in the real world and learned science and things. Did they all just abandon that normal, muggle knowledge, like Harry did? It’s always been there, itching in the back of my mind.
FOUR FOR YOU SCIENCE WIZARD
YOU GO SCIENCE WIZARD
can we point out that he’s doing wandless magic too
like voldemort couldn’t even do that shit
molly fuckin weasley couldn’t fuckin do that

pretty sure this whole series has been about the wrong wizard guys
Plot Twist: He is able to do wandless magic because his comprehensive understanding of quantum physics means that he is the only wizard/witch to actually understand how magic works.
HE NEEDS A NAME
Is this wizard the Glen Coco of the Harry Potter world?
IF SOMEONE ASKS ME WHO IS MY FAVOURITE CHARACTER IN HARRY POTTER I AM GONNA SAY THE SCIENCE WIZARD
