Through the Looking Glass

"We are what we believe we are." - C.S. Lewis

alisonwithagluegun:

Can we talk about how when Felix says “I smell lesbians in my bed last night” that’s probably about when Delphine was taking blood samples and they had that adorable half-hug “our relationship can be whatever we want moment.”

And Cosima’s probably all defensive about it (let’s be honest, she’s never been defensive of her sexuality or actions, she knows that she’s flirty and cute) because she hasn’t told anyone else about her illness yet. She wants to keep it a secret because she doesn’t want to admit how hard it is for her and that she and Delphine are researching it and that cute fluffy puppy sex is actually the furthest thing from her mind because she’s dying.

In social justice, there’s this absurd meme (that I’ve been guilty of myself) is that we are the “voice for the voiceless,” but that’s not right. The oppressed are not voiceless – they’re just not being listened to.

Dianna Anderson, of Be the Change, at Rachel Held Evans’ “Ask a Feminist” (via emm-in-sem)

Wooo, I like this.

Perfect quote is perfect.

Gonna print this out and stick it on my mirror. Keep that shit in check.

Or that one is “GIVING” a voice to a marginalized person. Which is very problematic as well. Having a voice is different to not being heard.

So we know it’s JK’s headcanon that Dudley has a magical child, right? Imagine his kid starting to show signs of magic and Dudley remembering all the odd things that used to happen around Harry. Imagine his kid coming home from Hogwarts and being all, “WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME UNCLE HARRY WAS FAMOUS?” Imagine Dudley reading up on Harry and finding out about all the stuff he did and all the things that happened to him and struggling to grasp how his scrawny, speccy cousin saved the wizarding world. Imagine Dudley, white-faced with terror at his first big family get-together with Harry, Hermione and all the remaining Weasleys. Imagine Mrs Weasley being decidedly cool towards him until he eats fifth helpings of everything she cooks and telling her that she’s the best cook he’s ever met. Imagine Dudley meeting Fleur. Imagine the others embarrassing Harry by telling Dudley stories about him. Imagine Dudley and Harry going down the pub together for beers. Imagine Harry still calling him Big D. Imagine Dudley cheerfully never dieting ever again and being fat and happy forever THE END.

This makes me absurdly happy

did they just made me happy about DUDLEY

Ron: “Stannis, the troll just went into the girls’ bathroom! Hermione’s in there! What do we do?”

Stannis: “I’m going to get Professor McGonagall!”

Stannis: “It’s the girls’ bathroom. We’re boys. We’re not allowed in there.”

Lord of the Rings:

Ring: “Staaaaannissssssss, Staaaaaaannissssss, put me on, Staaaaaannisssssss, you know you waaaaaant tooooooooooo.”

you know what’s dumb
the concept of treating adolescents like children throughout the entirety of their teenage years and then at around age 17 pulling a complete 180 and expecting them to decide within the next couple years what they want to do with the rest of their lives

you put it in words
