If we run out of sarcasm, there's some left over cynicism in the freezer.

But, we won't run out of sarcasm.

Friday was an important day for Harry and Ron. They finally managed to find their way down to the Great Hall for breakfast without getting lost once.

J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Ch. 8, p. 100

#Can we just pause for a moment and appreciate how sweet this is? #I mean, it’s something that probably many of us can relate to. #And in the context of the story, with all the great things Harry and Ron are going to do, it’s just so cute that getting down to breakfast was a big accomplishment way back when.

Melbourne, Australia protest for Gaza, July 19. 2014.

You know what would be swell? If the hundreds of attacks over the past few days on Israel before they retaliated were discussed, or even mentioned. Even if, and that’s a big if, the land belonged to the refugees in Gaza, why do they think murdering children is going to not spawn similar attacks?

Just days ago many villages in Israel were undergoing weeks of terror (as the often do). Why is this so rarely reported? I’m not saying that Gaza is entirely in the wrong, but do the people protesting Israel even really know what’s going on? If you’re protesting violence in the Middle East, I assure you, you’re doing it wrong.

BECAUSE THEY’RE PURE FUCKING GOLD

This band is amazing.

None of these are jokes.

Fun fact one time I went to watch them and stolas in Denton and they were posting about how they maybe wouldn’t make it cause someone got arrested but they ended up showing up late and to this day I don’t know if it was a joke or not

We got arrested that day.

In the books, Hermione’s boggart is failing her classes. Her greatest fear is failing her classes.
However, it goes a lot deeper than that. Subconsciously, I think she believes that if she does not do well and if she fails, they’ll kick her out of Hogwarts and the Wizarding World. So her real fear isn’t failing.
At Hogwarts, she has two wonderful friends who love her, and she is getting to live in an incredible world. She doesn’t want to lose that, and she thinks that if she does bad in her classes, they won’t let her come back.
Her real fear is rejection and loss.

so what if…
when in the philosophers stone her line “we could be killed, or worse.. expelled” wasn’t her being snooty or a teachers pet..
but her saying that she would rather die than stop going to hogwarts and never see her friends again?

why
